Pete: Statistical fact: If Clark moved any slower he'd be extinct.

(to Clark) Sometimes I dream I'm at school, waiting for Nell to pick me up. But she doesn't come, so my parents drive up. They're not dead, they're just really late. Then I get in their car and we drive back to my real life in Metropolis. That's usually when I wake up. But for a minute, I'm totally happy, until I realize I'm still alone.


Clark: Hey, this is a great place.
Lex: Yeah, if you're dead and in the market for something to haunt.
Clark: Well, I meant it's roomy.
Lex: It's the Luthor ancestral home, or so my father claims. He had it shipped over from Scotland stone by stone.
Clark: Yeah, I remember. The trucks rolled through town for weeks but no one ever moved in.
Lex: My father had no intention of living here. He's never even stepped through the front door.
Clark: Then why'd he ship it over?
Lex: Because he could.

I'd give anything to be normal.


Jonathan: Sweetheart, we can't keep him. What are we going to tell people - we found him out in a field?
Martha: We didn't find him. He found us.

Jonathan: Kids don't just fall out of the sky, Martha.
Martha: Well, where did he come from?
Jonathan: I don't know. But he must have parents.
Martha: Well, if he does, they're definitely not from Kansas.

Young Lana: Do you want to make a wish?
Martha: I would love to make a wish.
Young Lana: Okay. Abracadabra.

Chloe: Statistical fact: Clark Kent can't get within five feet of Lana Lang without turning into a total freak show.

I call it the Wall of Weird. It's every strange, bizarre, and unexplained event that's happened in Smallville since the meteor shower. That's when it all began - when the town went schitzo.


Lana: If you want someone to put in a good word, ask Clark. He saved Lex's life today.
Whitney: You're kidding.
Lana: Sometimes people can surprise you. I think it's kind of cool

Pete, do you want to take a commercial break from the soap opera in your head? I've told you a hundred times, I'm not interested in Clark.


(to Lex) Luthors are not afraid. We don't have that luxury. We're leaders. You have a destiny, Lex. You're never going to get anywhere with your eyes closed.

Pete: Statistical fact: If Clark moved any slower he'd be extinct.

Jonathan: I know this has gotta be really hard for you. But you gotta just hang in there like we promised.
Clark: I'm sick of "hanging in there." All I want to do is go through high school without being a total loser.
