Lex: In his own way he's just trying to give you something my father never gave me.
Clark: What's that?
Lex: Limitations. All my father ever told me was "don't get caught" and "don't cause a scandal." That's not love, it's public relations. You have no idea how lucky you are. When my father dies, kings will come to his funeral but when yours does, his friends will come.

Smallville Season 1 Episode 17 Quotes

Martha: I'm not going to play referee, you two need to work this out.
Clark: We will. First we'll have a week of uncomfortable silence and then we'll start talking about something trivial. And then we'll move on.

Lex: Do you know what my father gave me for my tenth birthday? A copy of The Will to Power. "Behold the Superman - man is something to be overcome." Sun Tzu, Machiavelli, Nietzsche, they were the voices that nurtured me after my mother died. My father made every question a quiz, every choice a test. Second best was for losers, compassion for the weak, trust no one. Those were the lessons I grew up with.
Dominic: I'll remember that if I'm ever interviewed by the Biography Channel.
Lex: All I'm saying, Dominic, is try to remember who I was raised by. I try to deny it, but I'm still my father's son. Tread carefully.
