What's with you, Clark? Do you have some sort of a Savior Complex? If I'm in trouble, you'll rescue me but other than that, you remain emotionally unavailable.


Most men are from Mars, Clark, but you're from some distant galaxy that I've never even heard of.


Clark: I've always liked Lana, but I can never get near her. I just found out that Chloe likes me, and I think I may have feelings for her, too.
Lex: So which one do you want to pursue?
Clark: That's the thing -- I want to protect my friendship with both.
Lex: Then you'll never get either one.

Lex: (seeing Clark reading a book, amused) 'Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus'?
Clark: I'm trying to get an insight into the female psyche.
Lex: I seriously doubt you'll find it in here.

Lex: What's the problem?
Clark: I have these two amazing friends, both of them girls...
Lex: For the sake of argument, let's call them "Lana" and "Chloe."

Clark: Look, I know I screwed up, but why is Chloe having a breakdown?
Pete: You're not the most observant person in the world, are you?

Lionel: What did she want?
Lex: Forgiveness.
Lionel: She must not know you very well.

Lionel: (reading) "I celebrate myself, and what I assume, you shall assume..."
Lex: "...for every atom belonging to me as good belongs to you."
Lionel: That sounds like a description of family.
Lex: Not ours.

Danny: I see you in a uniform, flying. Have you ever considered a career in the Air Force?
Clark: Um...I'll think about it.

Pamela: I wanted to see what kind of man you grew up into.
Lex: A very busy one.

Clark: That's weird, bees are notorious followers. They wouldn't desert their hive without good reason.
(Chloe gives him a look)
Clark: My mom's addicted to the Discovery Channel.

Chloe: I can't believe it only took one day for you to be compromised by the lure of popularity.
Clark: Remind me to pull your funding after I'm elected.

Smallville Season 1 Quotes

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.
