(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.


Lex: Clark...do you believe a man can fly?
Clark: Sure. In a plane.
Lex: No, I'm not talking about that. I'm talking about soaring through the clouds, with nothing but air beneath you.
Clark: People can't fly, Lex.
Lex: I did. After the accident, when my heart stopped. It was the most exhilarating two minutes of my life. I flew over Smallville, and for the first time, I didn't see a dead end. I saw a new beginning. Thanks to you, I have a second chance. We have a future, Clark, and I don't want anything to stand in the way of our friendship.

Jonathan: Who was the maniac who was driving that car?
Lex: That would be me - Lex Luthor.

Martha: Where'd you learn your manners?
Clark: On a farm?

Wait a minute, you two are trying out for the football team? What is this, some sort of teen suicide pact?


Lex: You have quite an extraordinary boy there, Mr. Kent, if there's any way I can repay you.

Lana: Are you okay?
Clark: I'm hanging out in a graveyard--does that strike you as okay behavior?

Lana: Can you keep a secret?
Clark: I'm the Fort Knox of secrets.

Jonathan: Are you okay?
Clark: Can I answer that in about five years?
Jonathan: Yeah.
Clark: Dad I'm glad you and mom are the ones that found me.
Jonathan: We didn't find you, Clark, you found us.

Lana: Didn't realize you had a dark side, Clark.
Clark: Doesn't everybody?
Lana: Yeah, I guess so. So what are you? Man or superman?
Clark: I haven't figured it out yet.

Clark: I took a shortcut.
Chloe: Through what, a black hole?

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.
