Chloe: Wow, can you believe that 4 years has gone by this fast?  There you go.

Brendan: Okay.  "To Brendan. A photographer who could always capture the moment.” Thanks.

Chloe: Sure.

Brendan: I gotta run. See ya. Bye.

Chloe: Bye.

Brendan: See ya at lunch.

[ Shower running ]

Chloe: Is anyone in here? Hello. Haley? Haley? Oh, thank god. I don't know what's going on, but I think we're the only two people-- 45ED1086.JPG

[ Gasps ]

[ Grunting ]

[ Panting ]

Chloe: Oh, my god. What's going on?

[ Bell rings ]

Chloe: Help! Help me! Help!

Martha: He's obviously been thinking about this for a while. You have to let him make his own decisions, Jonathan. 45ED1176.JPG

[ Sighs ]

Jonathan: Hey. Do you mind telling me why you have a financial aid package to Central Kansas?

Clark: That's where I'm going to college.

Jonathan: What happened to Met. U.? What happened to Ohio? What happened to Miami?

Clark: I thought I'd stay closer to home.

Martha: Clark, I know starting all over with new friends in a new city can seem a little overwhelming, but you can't let that hold you back.

Jonathan: This is one of the most important decisions you're gonna make 45ED1194.JPGin your entire life.

Clark: You don't think I know that?

Jonathan: Does Lana happen to be going to central kansas?

Clark: I don't know where Lana's going to school, so, no, this is not about Lana.

Jonathan: Oh, then it's about us. You don't think I can run this farm without your help.

Clark: This is where I'm needed.

Jonathan: Clark, your destiny lies far beyond those cornfields out there, and I'm not about to let you turn your back on that just because of us. Now, I've got a farm 45ED11B3.JPGto run.

Martha: Clark? Is it that really the reason?

Lisa: The bio test was really hard.

Dehlia: I know. I totally bombed it.

Chloe: Lisa, Dehlia. Do you guys know what's going on?

Lisa: You better hurry, Chloe, or you're gonna be late for Trig.

Chloe: Wait, Trig?  You guys, there's no classrooms behind these doors.

Dehlia: Just play along. He's watching. 45ED11E4.JPG

[ Camera beeps]

Chloe: Brendan, wait, don't let the door shut behind you! What are you doing? Are you playing along, too?

Brendan: Playing along? Chloe, I planned it all.

Chloe: You brought us here?

Brendan: Just because it's the last day of school doesn't mean it can't last forever.

Chloe: But, Brendan, you're not serious. Why would you want to stay stuck in high school when there's so much else out there?

Brendan: I thought you of all people would understand. 45ED11FC.JPGYou're editor of the Torch, Prom Queen. Chloe, you had everything in high school. Once you leave, all that's gonna be left is a lifetime of disappointments. But not in here.

Chloe: Brendan, you cannot keep us here forever. You have to move on.

Brendan: To what? Look, Chloe, some of us didn't get in to our dream colleges like you. When you're staring at a pile of rejection letters, "moving on" really means working at a local video store 45ED1219.JPGfor the rest of your life.

Chloe: Well, how can you be sure the rest of us are gonna go along with this?

Brendan: Wendel? Wendel, come here. I said, come here!

Wendel: I didn't do anything. I swear.

Brendan: Chloe was just wondering what happens when we don't play along.

Wendel: No, no, please...

Brendan: Wendel...

Wendel: No, I didn't -- aah!

Brendan: It's best if you realize how much better off you are here, Chloe. I'll save a seat for you at lunch? 45ED124F.JPG

Lana: What do you think?

Clark: I think it's finally starting to hit me. It's really over, isn't it? You know, I remember walking through those doors the first day of freshman year.

Lana: actually, I think you tripped.

Clark: Well, I couldn't help it. You made me nervous.

Lana: It was cute. Who knew you'd turn into this big high school football star?

Clark: Former football star... who's gotten used to seeing you every morning at the lockers. Well, I guess that's all gonna change now that you're going off to college.

Lana: Well, I don't know if I'm gonna go.

Clark: Really? I mean, what do you mean? You're the one who's always dreamt of leaving this town, ever since you were a little girl.

Lana: I know. It's just that, right now, 45ED129E.JPGfeel like I'd be making that decision because it's what everyone expects us to do. If I go, I want to make that choice for the right reasons.

Clark: So you're staying in Smallville?

Lana: I don't know. I think it would45ED12E6.JPG be really hard with all of you guys gone.

Clark: Well, not all of us will be gone. I'm thinking of commuting to Central Kansas.

Lana: Then maybe I won't have to spend any more time trying to figure out how to say good-bye.

Woman: Wendel Johnson! Chloe Sullivan! Haley Timmons! Dehlia Watkins!

Clark: I would've thought chloe would be the first one in line.

Lex: Luthorcorp is the legal conservator of the cave. We can do any excavation work we want down there. I'll have to call you back. I thought we'd concluded our business.

Jason: Almost.

Martha: Clark was gonna take care of that tonight.

[ Panting ]

Jonathan: It's nothing I can't handle by myself.

Martha: I know what you're doing, Jonathan. You can't take the place of Clark on this farm. No one can. Every other farm in the county has at least five hands to help out.

Jonathan: Sweetheart, my family managed to run this farm for generations before Clark came around. I see no reason why I can't run it by myself.

Martha: Sometimes I wonder which one of you is more stubborn.

Jonathan: Why don't I give you a clue?

Martha: When are you gonna admit that the truth is, you and I can't run this place alone? 45ED13E0.JPG

Jonathan: Martha, what exactly is it that you want me to do? You want me to tell our teenage son that we couldn't possibly survive around here without him? What kind of parents would that make us?

Martha: Honest ones. How many times has he asked to be treated like an adult? This decision took a lot of maturity.

Jonathan: Or guilt. Martha, Clark still feels responsible for my heart problems. I can't allow him to do this out of pity.

Martha: It's not pity, Jonathan. Clark knows that if he leaves, he can only come back a few times a year. And he doesn't want one of those times to be your funeral.

Clark: Chloe?

Lana: I don't know if Met. U.  Is ready for the Wall of Weird.

Clark: She didn't get the torch out today.

Lana: Well, maybe the printers aren't working.

Clark: No. It's not even in its final format. There's no way Chloe would let the last day of school go by 45ED142D.JPGwithout getting in her final word.

Lana: And when was the last time Chloe pulled an all-nighter with a dead line and didn't finish her latte?

Clark: Or leave without her lifeline?

[ Grunting ]

Lex: Guess I should've trusted my instincts. I knew you were working with Jason.

Lionel: Judging from the fact that 10 minutes ago I lost all feeling in my hands, you have a very curious definition of "collaboration," Lex. 45ED1468.JPG

[ Chuckles ]

Lionel: Genevieve and the dutiful son. The Oedipal bond certainly has a way of, um, flourishing when it's fed. Doesn't it, lex?

Genevieve: Lionel, the stones may be just another hobby for you, but I didn't search all these years just to reach a stalemate.

Lex: You're making a big mistake, Jason. I know she's your mother, but don't think for a second she won't turn on you. Trust me on this one.

Genevieve: Jason.

Jason: It's okay, mother. I don't expect him to understand the meaning of family loyalty, especially when the only thing running through the Luthor blood is betrayal. Now, we want the stone you stole from us.

Genevieve: Yes, Lex, your father has one of those stones.

Lex: Then what do you want from me? 45ED14A3.JPG

Genevieve: I have a feeling that he'd sooner die than give up that stone, but all that might change if his own flesh and blood were at stake.

Lex: You obviously don't know my father as well as I do.

Genevieve: I hope, for your sake, you're wrong.

Lois: I've got a couple cappuccinos and a double espresso. Where do they go? There you go,

Girl: Thank you.

Lois: I'm impressed, Smallville. Of all the seniors skipping the last day of school, I didn't expect to see you.

Clark: I'm on lunch break.

Lois: Right, right, because, you know, why would you do anything like any other normal teenager in America? The last day of school's a "get out of jail free" card. Even my best employee Haley flaked on her morning shift.

Clark: I'm here to look for Chloe.  Have you seen her?

Lois: After my 2:00 A.M. Java run to the Torch last night so that she could make her deadline, I'm guessing she's crashed out somewhere. 45ED14E5.JPG

Clark: Lois, she never published the last issue. It's kinda why I think something's going on.

Girl: Um, Clark, could you sign my yearbook?

Clark: Yeah. Is this the girl who didn't show up for work today?

Lois: " Most likely to be a sharks cheerleader?" Yep, that's our girl.

Girl: Thanks.

Clark: Listen, Wendel, Haley, Chloe, and Dehlia they didn't pick up their graduation robes today.

Lois: Not your "most likely to ditch" crowd. Do you think something's happened to45ED1537.JPG them?

Clark: I don't know. Did anything seem weird last night when you left Chloe?

Lois: She was just swimming through a pile of photos with some photographer kid.

Lana: Hi.

Brendan: Hey. I didn't mean to scare you there.

Lana: It's okay.

Brendan: I, uh, was just wondering if you sign my yearbook, actually.

Lana: Sure. "Most likely to be a Cover Girl." [ Laughs ] I kind of think that the photographer had something to do with this.

Brendan: Thanks. Of course a photograph could never take the place of the real thing, right?

Lisa: Chloe, you better get to class. The bell's gonna ring soon. You don't want to be late.

Chloe: I'll be right there. Brendan.

Brendan: What are you two talking about?

Chloe: We were just planning a study session for Mr. Kramer's quiz. 45ED1606.JPG

[ Chuckles nervously ]

Brendan: I have a surprise for you.

[ Laughs ]

Brendan: If you ask me... "Most Likely to be a     Cover Girl" is selling her short, but at least you'll have a friend in here with you.

[ Gasps ]

Lana: Chloe, what's going on?

Brendan: Chloe, I'm gonna let you tell Lana the rules.

Chloe: Okay. Great.

Lana: How did I end up back in school?

Chloe: Okay, don't wig out, but we're not in school.

Lana: Why are you acting like this?

Chloe: He's watching. Brendan, A.K.A. "Mr. Medusa's touch," recreated this place. It's kind of like a cage. It gives new meaning to the phrase "capturing the moment, "doesn't it?

Lana: But how did he.  The last thing I remember doing is signing his yearbook. 45ED1663.JPG

Chloe: Lana, will you sign my yearbook?

Lana: Okay...

Chloe: Look at the names. I seriously doubt it's just a coincidence that the slumber party's guest list is all on the "most likely to" page. We've been collected.

Haley: Hey, guys. I told Brendan you had a crush on him like you wanted me to.

Lana: What are you guys talking about?

Chloe: Brendan wants high school? We'll give him high school.

Genevieve: Where is the stone?

Lex: Aah! God!

Genevieve: Lionel, Lex is your son. And despite what you want him to believe, I know you don't want to watch him die. Jason, darling...

Lex: Oh, god, aah!

Lionel: Stop. Stop it!

Genevieve: Where is it?

Lionel: I gave it to Lana.

Lex: Lana doesn't know anything about this.

Genevieve: You wouldn't have trusted anything that valuable to her.

Lionel: I gave it to her for the same reason I gave her the map to the temple. She is the chosen one, and we all know that.

Genevieve: Jason, I'll take care of Lana.

Jason: You promised me you wouldn't hurt her. Has she ever shown any gratitude? Lana has no idea how much you've been protecting her. And for what? For her to choose Clark over you? You know... I would never betray you the way she has.

Lionel: I wouldn't underestimate her, Genevieve. Don't forget, Lana Lang's ancestor 45ED170B.JPGpledged at she would revenge your family.

Genevieve: I would leave folklore in the past if I were you, Lionel. My ancestors burned traitors at the stake. Let's hope you're not one of them.

Clark: Brendan? He's gotta be in here. It's like his second home.

Lois: Just like Chloe should be at the Torch. This whole "10 little indians" thing is starting to give me the creeps. Popular guy -- cheerleaders, alternate girls... jocks...

Clark: Brendan knows everyone. Sort of your fast track to the front page of the Torch.

Lois: That's a little Norman Bates.

Clark: That's everyone from the "most likely" list. Lana?

Lois: Oh, god, do you think they're --

Clark: No. It seems more like a collection, 45ED1753.JPGlike he's keeping them somewhere. Lois, check this out.

[ Sarcastically ]

Lois: Oh. Thanks, clark. It's like they're his paper dolls or something.

Clark: Except these blueprints are to scale. He must've rebuilt this part of the school somewhere. Nash construction.

<>[ Knock on door ]

Chloe: Hey, it's amazing how much material we have for tomorrow's issue already.

Brendan: Well, I wanted to make sure you had some 45ED179A.JPGgreat shots to work with. You know, it's funny... four years in school together, and I had no idea that you and Haley were such good friends.

Chloe: Why? What did she tell you?

Brendan: Nothing I didn't suspect already.

Chloe: You know, the more I think about it, the more I can't believe you recreated this whole place for all of us.

Brendan: After I got those rejection letters, I realized I spent so much time proving myself in here, and none of it mattered on the outside.

Chloe: And we'd have to do it all again if we left. So how'd you do it?

Brendan: I told my dad if he didn't build it, I'd turn my annoying step-monster into his own personal mannequin. You45EE155D.JPG should've seen the look on her face. It was just great.

Chloe: Let's go.

Haley: Please get us out of here.

[ Beeping ]

Brendan: You shouldn't have tried to get away, Haley. I thought you felt the same way I did about our future.

Chloe: Brendan, you can't keep us here forever.

Lana: You have to let us go. I don't think you really want that. I know you'll like it here, or you'll end up like your friend Haley.

Lionel: She's a difficult woman to resist. Though you were supposed to get close to Lana, but what happened? Did you stray a little too far from those apron strings?

Jason: You know, with all your resources, I would have thought by now you'd know that Lana's nothing more than my mother's pawn.

Lionel: A pawn? Well, that's true, but a pawn you fell in love with. It must be killing you that you've sacrificed your feelings for Lana 45EE1671.JPGin exchange for some maternal warmth it seems you can't do without.

[ Gun uncocks ]

Lex: Makes us look like the Waltons, doesn't it?

[ Chuckles ]

Lionel: I'm sorry, Lex, I got you involved in all this. You may not believe me, but I truly wish I were here alone.

Lex: To be honest, dad, I'm glad you're here with me. Now knock that iron out of the fire and get it as close to my chair as you can. We gotta split up. Go! Ah!

Jason: Wait, lex, Lex, don't do this. Don't do this. Come on, look at me. Look at me. You and I --we're not that different. It was never about you and me. It was about our parents. Please, Lex, please! 45EE1731.JPG

Lex: I always knew I had to protect Lana from you.

Jason: But not as much as you've been protecting your best friend.

Lex: Huh? Clark? Clark doesn't have anything to do with this.

Jason: Oh, you don't believe that. Clark's more connected to this than any of us. You just choose to ignore it. I mean, think about it. The symbols burned into the Kent barn, the fields.

Lex: It's a little late and obvious to be shifting the blame in the 11th hour.

Jason: Can't you see what's right in front of your face, Lex? It's Clark. He's -- 45EE174C.JPG

[ Gunshot ]

Lionel: He was, about to kill you, Lex.

Lex: Or divulge something you didn't want me to know.

<>Lionel: Lex, you saved my life back there. I was returning the favor, son.

Lex: I had no choice. I know you have the stone. If anything happens to Lana, you'll be begging for an end like that.

Lois: How cliché, an abandoned warehouse. Oh, great.

Clark: You know, maybe there's another way in around the corner. Why don't you go check? I'll see if I can't find a key for this lock.

Lois: Keys? Well, I highly doubt they're under the welcome mat, but, uh, you knock yourself out.

Clark: Chloe. Chloe? Brendan. 45EE1817.JPGYou have to release everybody.

Brendan: I wanted you to be a part of all of this, Clark. But you guys, you guys had no right coming here!

Clark: You have to let them go. Things change no matter how much we don't want them to. We can't live in high school forever.

Brendan: You don't really want that. I mean, Clark think about it. She can stay like this forever. Always be with you. You wouldn't be afraid if she ever left you.

Clark: I'm not afraid of that, brendan.

Brendan: You should be. She'll leave you, Clark. And she might never come back. If you really45EE184B.JPG care about her, you'll do anything you can to keep her.

Clark: Let her go.

Brendan: No. No. What's happening? No. It won't -- stop. You're gonna find out what it's like to lose someone forever.

Clark: No!!

[ Gasps ]

Lana: Clark...

[ Panting ]

Chloe: Lois!

Lois: Oh, hey!

Chloe: My God..

Jonathan: Wow, I haven't seen you use that thing in a long time. I thought maybe you'd outgrown it.

Clark: Dad, I think that we --

Jonathan: Clark... 45EE194F.JPG

[ Sighs ]

Jonathan: Clark, a time comes in everybody's life when they realize their parents aren't gonna be around forever.

Clark: Dad --

Jonathan: Clark, I just --I just don't want you sacrificing your potential because of me.

Clark: It's not a sacrifice, dad. It's a choice.

[ Chuckles ]

Jonathan: It's a really fine line, don't you think?

Clark: Dad, I get the feeling we could talk about this all night, and you're still not gonna understand.

Jonathan: Oh, I understand a whole lot more than you think.

Clark: Right, that's why you came up here to change my mind. Dad, you raised me to make my own decisions. Why don't you trust me on this?

Jonathan: Because you are a lot like me. I had a full ride to Met. U. waiting for me when I graduated. The problem is, my father needed me on this farm. So I stayed. 45EE198E.JPG

Clark: Dad, that's a pretty big footnote to leave out. Why didn't you tell me?

Jonathan: I didn't want it to weigh you down. As much as I loved my father, I, a part of me still resents him for needing me that much. I don't want you to feel that. That's not the kind of father I... I ever wanted to be.

Clark: Dad, this isn't about the kind of father you are. It's about the kind of son I want to be. 45EE1A0E.JPG

<>[ Cheering ]
Chloe: Hey. Thank you. So I guess this is it, huh?

Clark: It's not like we're never gonna see each other, right?

Lana: Yeah, you'll have summers and holidays.

Chloe: This sucks.

Lana: Yeah, big time.

Clark: Suddenly, all those tests and teachers we hated seem a lot less scary than the big question mark that's hanging out there.

Lana: You think after everything that happened to Brendan, it'd be a whole lot easier to say good-bye to all this.

Clark: There's a lot here to say good-bye to.

Chloe: You know, not to go all "psycho sympathizer" on you guys, but I can't blame Brendan for wanting to keep everybody together. Although, after that little lock-in, I can't think of45EE1A52.JPG anything scarier than being stuck in the past and not moving on. Wait a minute, Lana. Did you say "I'll" have summers and holidays? What about you?

Lana: I'm staying in smallville.

Clark: I thought you said you weren't sure.

Chloe: Don't you want to see what else is out there?

Lana: Well, that's exactly why I went to Paris last year, but there's a reason that I was drawn back home. I'm just not sure that I've explored all of the possibilities here.

Chloe: Maybe things won't change much, after all.
