To quote The Godfather, "It's time to go to the mattresses".


Lana: And then he had the nerve to say "It's nothing personal, only business."
Clark: Why does everyone over 40 have to quote The Godfather?

Lana: That's too bad. I think you'd make a great class president.
Clark: Really?
Lana: Yeah. You're honest. People trust you. And you have this innate sense of justice. I can see it on your face how upset you get every time you think somebody's being mistreated.
Clark: You see all that in me?
Lana: Yes I do.

Lex: (to Clark): There's nothing wrong with a good fight. Just remember, the man of tomorrow is forged by his battles today.

Clark: My father says you learn more about yourself when you lose.
Lex: What'd you learn?
Clark: That I'm not destined to be a politician. You need two different personalities.
Lex: You don't need to be an elected official to change the world, Clark.
Clark: Have you ever thought about getting into politics?
Lex: Someday I'd like to be president.

Clark: Chloe, not that I'm planning to, but if I ran, do you think I'd have a shot?
Chloe: Yeah, right after I'm elected head cheerleader.

Chloe: "Clark Kent, Man of Tomorrow". Kind of presumptuous, don't you think?
Clark: I like it.

Appearance is deceptive. Nothing around here is what it seems.


Clark:I can't believe Pete did this.
Chloe: I know. Some men are born to greatness, others are dragged into it kicking and screaming.

She is trying to buy this election like one of her Prada bags!


Lana: I felt I had to choose between doing the right thing and being successful. Weird part is, I kind of enjoyed being underhanded.
Clark: Lana Lang, seduced by the dark side? Who woulda thunk?

Pete: Clark, you've got the whole package: looks, brains, and that whole farm boy charm.

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.
