Jor-El: Kal-El, you have come far. One journey has ended. A new
journey is about to begin. Welcome, my son.
Lana: Please, don't hurt me.
Police Officer: Lie down on the ground!
Female Kryptonian: Where is the girl?
Male Kryptonian: She is irrelevant. We must find Kal-El.
Lois: Oh my God.
Jonathan: Martha! Martha, sweetheart! Martha!
Lois: Mr. Kent! Are you okay? Mrs. Kent! Clark!
Jonathan: Clark isn't here; he's alright. Martha!
Lois: Here! She's here!
Jonathan: Sweetheart, I'm gonna get you out of here. It's okay. Easy,
Lois: She's barely breathing.
Jonathan: She'll be fine. We're gonna get you out of here. Can you help
get her out of here?
Lex: Where'd you go, Chloe?
Female Kryptonian: He has the key.
Lex: Who are you?
Male Kryptonian: Are you Kal-El?
Lex: Who wants to know?
Female Kryptonian: It's not him. Kal-El would not bleed.
Chloe: Clark? Clark!
Clark: I thought Krypton was destroyed!
Jor-El: It was, but here in your Fortress of Solitude, the geography of
our planet has been replicated for your training.
Clark: I know there's a lot I can learn from you, but I have to get home.
That's where I'm needed.
Jor-El: The meteor shower is only the precursor. A dark force from
Krypton has been awakened, Kal-El, and it's sights have been set on Earth.
Clark: What do you want me to do?
Jor-El: You must do as I tell you. Study with diligence, for that is the
only way to save this planet.
Clark, can you hear me? Clark!
Jor-El: Kal-El, you must continue your education. You cannot stop.
Clark: She's my friend! She needs help!
Clark: No, I won't let her die!
Jor-El: Each time you let your emotions guide you, the fate of the of the
entire planet is at risk. That is your weakness, Kal-El!
Clark: Please! I'm begging you!
Jor-El: Very well--under one condition: return to me before the yellow
sun has set.
Clark: I'll be back. I promise.
Jor-El: Do not fail me, Kal-El, for the consequences will be grave.
Clark: You have my word.
Chloe: Hey. I think it's time you switch into Super Clark mode now.
Clark: Super Clark.
Chloe: I know you run faster than a speeding bullet, Clark. Take me along
for the ride.
Chloe: Go, Clark.
Lex: Lana! What happened?
Lana: They're still out there. They'll kill us if they find
Lex: It's okay. You're safe now. Lana, you need to get off that leg. I'll
call a doctor.
Lana: You don't understand. We're not safe. We're not safe!
Lex: Lana, you're in shock! It's over! The meteor shower stopped. It's
Lana: There's a man and a woman. They're right behind us. They came out--
Lex: Out of what? What did they come out of?
Lana: A spaceship.
Lana: In Lander's Field.
Lex: Lana, after what you've been through, it's perfectly normal for your
mind to play tricks on you. Trust me.
Lana gets angry and pushes him away.
Lana: No, Lex! You trust me! I know what I saw. We have to get as far
away as possible.
Chloe: Thank you.
Chloe: I wonder who's more freaked out right now: me, knowing I'm in a
hospital where they get their medicine via dogsled, or you, finally finding
out I know your secret.
Clark: How long have you known?
Chloe: I guess I've always had my suspicions. The quick exits, the
miraculous recoveries, the lame excuses, but I think when I saw you catch a
car like it was a beach ball, that kinda confirmed everything.
Clark: Why didn't you say anything?
Chloe: I figured if you wanted to tell me you were part of the super
power persuasion, you would when you were ready. On your terms; not on mine.
Clark: You're a good friend, Chloe.
Chloe: Obviously not good enough.
Clark: There were so many times I wanted to tell you.
Chloe: Clark, I don't blame you. Loose lips sink ships and God knows I've
sunk my share of flotillas. What about Lana? Does she know?
Chloe: Well, I want you to know, I'll never be the iceberg to your
Titanic, and your secret will never ever leave my lips. No matter what.
Clark: I appreciate that.
Chloe: There's still a few blind spots though. Like, how did we get
beamed from the Kawatche cave to the North Pole? And, what was really going
on in that forty story igloo?
Clark: Look, Chloe, there's a lot of things about me that even I don't
understand. The meteor rocks--they didn't make me the way I am.
Chloe: So, you're saying you were born this way?
Clark: I wasn't born anywhere near Smallville. In fact, I wasn't born
anywhere near this galaxy.
Chloe: Okay...okay...so that would make you an...
Chloe: But you...you look so...
Clark: I'm still the same person.
Chloe: Clark --I think you're so amazing. You save people's lives and
take zero credit for it. To me, you're more than just a hero. You're a super
Chloe: I'm serious, Clark. If more humans were like you, the world would
be a better place.
Anchorman :...What scientists are describing as a rare astronomical event,
Smallville, Kansas was hit by the second meteor shower in sixteen years,
killing twenty-three people and injuring scores of others.
Clark: They didn't get out. My parents didn't get out.
Chloe: Smallville needs you more than I do Clark. Go. Go! Whoa.
Lana: Mr. Luthor. Mr. Luthor! Are you okay?
Lionel: The disciples of Zod. They must be stopped!
Lana: You're talking about the people from the ship.
Lionel: Their home is their only poison. Their home is their only poison.
Lana: Where are they?
Jonathan: Ah, Martha Kent! If you were trying to scare me, you did one
heck of a job. For a minute there, I thought I lost you.
Martha: I guess I found my way back. Has Clark come home?
Jonathan: Sweetheart, please, you need to use all of your energies just
to get better, not to worry about Clark. Our son can handle anything that's
thrown his way.
Lois: Mrs. Kent! I have to say, you look a whole lot better without a
china cabinet on your back.
Martha: Hi, Lois. It's good to see you.
Jonathan: Lois was quite a hero out there.
Lois: You guys put a roof over my head. Least I could do was help out
when it came crashing down.
Male Kryptonian: Where is Kal-El?
Jonathan: Who are you?
Female Kryptonian: You know where he is.
Jonathan: I'm sorry, lady. I don't know who you're talking about.
Lois: Okay, everyone needs to calm down and count to ten. Put the nice
man down. Look, super freak, you wanna find your Kal-El buddy; you need to
start working on your communication skills.
Lana: I know where Kal-El is. He's hiding out at the Luthor mansion. I
can take you to him.
Lois: (hoarsely) Lana!
Clark: Mom! Dad?
Lex: Clark! Thank God you're okay.
Clark: Where's my mom and dad?
Lex: At the hospital. Your mom has a broken leg and a concussion, but
she's going to be okay. She's out of danger now.
Clark: What about Lana?
Lex: Lana's safe. It's Chloe I'm worried about.
Lex: Clark, she was down in the cave with me when the meteors hit. I was
knocked out and when I came to, she was gone.
Clark: She must have escaped while you were unconscious.
Lex: Or someone helped her out.
Clark: What? You think I did? Lex, how could I--
Lex: Clark, before I passed out, there was a light brighter than anything
I've ever seen. I could've sworn I saw you standing right in it's epicenter.
Clark: I was nowhere near those caves.
Lex: If you weren't with your parents when the meteors hit, where have
Clark: They insisted I get a head start. I got a ride on one of the
Lex: Why do I get this nagging feeling that you're being less than honest
Clark: I have no idea.
Lex: Well, I'm beginning to get the impression that lying is an
unshakable habit of yours.
Clark: I don't have to listen to this.
Lex: Then be straight with me for once. If you're my friend, just tell me the truth. Were you in the cave
when the meteors hit?
Lois: Look, I understand the police have their hands full, but Mr. and
Mrs. Universe--they're killing people.
Lois: Clark! You're okay!
Clark: Yeah, you?
Lois: I'm fine.
Clark: Have you seen my parents?
Lois: They are going to be fine.
Clark: Where are they?
Lois: Actually, um, we have another problem. Kind of a big problem,
really. A happy loving couple came through here with super powers and a
really bad attitude. Got pretty ugly.
Clark: What'd they want?
Lois: They were looking for some guy named Kal-El. You ever hear of him?
Clark: Where'd they go?
Lana: Kal-El's in there.
Female Kryptonian: It's a trick! Get the door! Seal it!
Male Kryptonian: Lying is their way.
Female Kryptonian: Not for long.
Clark: I heard you are looking for me. I'm Kal-El.
Male Kryptonian: At last!
Clark: Who are you?
Female Kryptonian: The last survivors of Krypton.
Clark: What do you want?
Male Kryptonian: We want you to join us, Kal-El, and help us make this
savage land our Utopia.
Clark: I saw what you did at the hospital. It's not Utopia; it's murder!
Male Kryptonian: The few must be sacrificed for the sake of the many.
Clark: Then sacrifice me, 'cause I'm not going to let you kill anyone
Female Kryptonian: If that is your decision, so be it, Kal-El.
Male Kryptonian: We can't destroy you, Kal-El, but we can lock you in a
place where you can't stop us.
Clark begins to slip, losing his grip.
Male Kryptonian: It is done.
Lana: Oh, Clark!
Clark: Are you okay?
Lana: Where are they?
Clark: They're gone. Do you know who they were? We need to get you to a hospital.
Martha: My God, our home!
Jonathan: It's just wood and plaster, Martha. The fact is, our family's
still standing. We might be bruised, but I think we're stronger for it.
Martha: You're right. A house can always be rebuilt.
Jonathan: It doesn't hurt to have a one man construction team as a son.
Martha, to Clark: Hi.
Jonathan: Don't worry, Clark. Things are gonna get back to normal soon
Clark: Actually, things will be a lot more normal around here than you
think. My abilities are gone.
Clark: Jor-El took them, but I'm not sure it's such a bad thing. All I've
ever wanted was to be normal. Now, finally, I am.
Jonathan: I don't think this adjustment is going to be quite as easy as
you do, Clark.
Clark: But that's why I'm lucky to have parents like you. Every time I
woke up and had a new ability, you were always there to help me adjust and
this time is no different.
Martha: It's different. You can get hurt now; you're vulnerable.
Clark: Isn't that what it means to be human?
Jonathan: Nah, I-I can't imagine Jor-El giving up on you that easy.
Clark: I took care of the danger he warned me about. If losing my
abilities is the consequence, then I think he's done with me. Look, it's all
in the past now. I'm ready to take a step to the future. I'll start by
rebuilding this house, one board at a time.
Lex: Now, how could Clark possibly be here? We're in the middle of the
Chloe: I don't know. I must've been dreaming, I guess. What's going on,
Lex: I came to take you home.
Lois: Clark! Really, you shouldn't have.
Clark: Actually, I didn't.
Lois: Too sweet for words.
Clark: How'd you get that frog in your throat?
Lois: That's what happens when you get a neck massage form Barbie the
Barbarian. Doctor says I shouldn't talk too much.
Clark: Oh, gee. That's too bad.
Lois: Don't get your hopes up, Smallville. It's not permanent. Oh, I
gotta catch a plane for Geneva in two hours. If I'm late, the general will
court-martial me or something.
Clark: You know, I did wanna say thank you. You were there for my
parents. It means a lot.
Lois: I'm sure it does. But, not enough to give me this deluxe Iris
arrangement from Main Street Florist. She's down the hall. Room 258.
Clark: I hope irises are still on your favorite flowers list.
Lana: Some things stay number one forever. Thank you.
Clark: Lana, before the meteor shower, you came by the barn. You said
some things. A few words sorta stood out.
Lana: Clark, the sky was literally about to fall down on us. I never knew
if I'd see you again.
Clark: Right. We were in the middle of a crisis. Sometimes people say
things they don't mean.
Lana: Clark, I meant every word. The question is, did you?
Clark: No more secrets. No more lies.
Lana: Clark, I wanna ask you something: do you believe in life on other
Clark: Actually, I do.
Lana: I saw something that in crater. It was a spaceship, Clark. It was unbelievable.
