Lazarus[edit]

[10.01]

Chloe Sullivan: Show me where Oliver is.
Helmet of Nabu: Would you sacrifice your sanity to save the Archer?

Clark Kent: I died to save the world.
Jor-El: Evil never ends. By sacrificing yourself, you have left the humans vulnerable to future threats.
Clark Kent: I left a team of heroes behind to protect them.
Jor-El: You were meant to be Earth's greatest protector. Now, they are about to face the greatest evil without you.
Clark Kent: Then send me back! I know my fate! To step into the light! To be a symbol of hope for them.
Jor-El: I told you to rule with strength, but you chose the martyr's path. What makes you think you deserve a second chance?
Clark Kent: I can do it. I can be their hero!

Clark Kent: Sometimes I think it would be easier if you were here.
Jonathan Kent: Not a day goes by, Clark, when I don't regret not being able to be right here for you. I would do anything, I would give anything to able to get a second chance to get it right. You got that second chance, son. You could be the greatest hero the world has ever known.
Clark Kent: Not according to Jor-El.
Jonathan Kent: Well, then, do what you do best. Prove him wrong. Jor-El was right about one thing. Something dark is coming. You're gonna be tested. It's not gonna be easy, son. But I have faith in you.

Clark Kent: I defeated Lex. I refused to let him win. And I pushed myself harder than I ever have before. For a second, I thought I was flying. But I saved everyone, I don't know how but I saved them all. I've finally become the hero you sent me here to be.
Jor-El: Pride... vanity... you almost took a man's life and you dare tell me you are following the path that I set out for you?
Clark Kent: You told me that I have unfinished business. An evil here that I had to face! And Lex...!
Jor-El: The evil is you, Kal-El. The greatest threat Earth will face is coming. It preys on wavering souls like yours. Once this darkness consumes you, you will be Earth's greatest enemy.
Clark Kent: That's not my fate.
Jor-El: You cannot be a beacon of hope when you have darkness in your heart.
Clark Kent: Then why did you send me back? Why did you give me a second chance?!
Jor-El: I didn't. It was not my decision to give you back your life.
Clark Kent: You may not see me as a hero. But the rest of the world does! And I decide my fate!
Jor-El: I regret as a father, my faith in you blinded me to the truth. You will never be Earth's savior.

Rick Flag: Your satellite was tracking them -- symbols that looked just like The Blur's, which makes him the person of interest. But what's your connection to all this?
Oliver Queen: Man, I told you. You got this whole thing wrong, okay? I'm what you call a good guy here! I'm not guilty of anything here except trying to save the world! All right? And I would tell you who from but I don't think you'd believe me.
Rick Flag: Try me.
Oliver Queen: These little green guys from outer space. (laughs)

Shield[edit]

[10.02]

Tess Mercer: [Reading Chloe's letter to Oliver] "Oliver, I never thought I'd have to tell you how I feel about us because the smile on my lips when I looked at you pretty much said it all. But now that you won't be seeing it anymore I'll have to use words to tell you. I've never loved anyone the way I've loved you and I never will again. You are my brightest star, my knight in shining leather, my hero." ...Oliver, this may be difficult for you to face, but I didn't write this. We both know Chloe did.

Tess Mercer: (to Oliver) Trust never was the golden rule for the kids in this clubhouse.

Carter Hall: You know, the philosopher Nietzsche believed we shouldn't live for the future, but for the present. He thought that people who chased after some far-off future dream were really running away from their true destiny.
Lois Lane: Yeah, well, Nietzsche can call me a chicken if he wants, but he has never dated someone like Clark Kent.
Carter Hall: It wouldn't have mattered. To him, the true hero was the person who embraced the life that he or she was given and made it better. He called that person "Übermensch."
Lois Lane: A Superman.
Carter Hall: Nietzsche believed we could all be one. In our own way.

Carter Hall: (to Lois) I guess you never know what fate has planned for you.

Rick Flag: Let's give these boys a taste of what it's like to mess with the Suicide Squad.

Supergirl[edit]

[10.03]

Kara Kent: It was a start.
Clark Kent: It's not flying if it's mostly falling.

Darkseid (in Gordon Godfrey's body): (to Clark) Are you sure you can win against me? You know what I am. You know the doubt in your heart. You so-called heroes are false gods, all of you. And when people stop believing in you, you'll shatter like glass.

Lois Lane: Somebody should put Godfrey in some serious restraints. Who knew Mr. Family Values had such a dark side?
Kara Kent: Godfrey's not so special. There's two sides to everyone... even heroes.

Kara Kent: It's critical that I get my image around the city, as soon as possible. You just have to trust me Kal-El. I'm doing this for you.
Clark Kent: Kara, this doesn't feel like much of a favor.
Kara Kent: I've searched so long for my mother, and I never found her. You and I are the last survivors of the House of El. And after everything that we've been through together, I had to come back to the one place in the universe that I had family.
Clark Kent: Well, what you are doing right now, flies in the face of how I've chosen to live on this planet my whole life. We both know that. Now if you really care about family, tell me what you doing here and stop avoiding the question!
Kara Kent: I didn't want to hurt you. Jor-El has given me a mission. I'm getting my powers and image around the city as part of it.
Clark Kent: He gave you a mission? What did he say?
Kara Kent: He's let you go, Kal-El. I'm sorry. He says, you're no longer his son.

Lois Lane: There is a guy out there, Gordon Godfrey, and he thinks that Green Arrow is my ex-boyfriend.
Oliver Queen: He does?
Lois Lane: Hmm.
Oliver Queen: You know I think we just leave him alone. You know let the blowhard eventually blow himself out, and in the meantime I can handle a few slings and arrows. I'm sure you can too.
Lois Lane: Oliver, Godfrey's got proof! He has a secret chapter about you, and he's gonna post it online tomorrow. He knows who you are.
Oliver Queen: Maybe people deserve to know the truth.
Lois Lane: People deserve to be saved. And it's safer for you to be in the shadows, it's safer for all the heroes.
Oliver Queen: Maybe, or maybe the cost of keeping my secret is getting too high, and it's time to pay the piper.
Lois Lane: If you're not seriously gonna stand up and kick this creep to the curb, then I will!

Homecoming[edit]

[10.04]

Lois Lane: Come on. Did you forget? Tomorrow's our Smallville High reunion.
Clark Kent: Did you say our reunion?
Lois Lane: Yes.
Clark Kent: You were enrolled there for like...
Lois Lane: Twenty three days.
Clark Kent: You showed up for five.
Lois Lane: That's a record in my book. Smallville is the closest thing to a past that this military brat has, and I am not gonna miss it. We don't have to be dating to show up at a reunion together.
Clark Kent: There's a lot of memories there for me.
Lois Lane: Come on, Clark. It would mean a lot to me, seeing all those familiar faces, like I had a place to fit in. And you, I mean, you put the Smallville in Smallville, Smallville.

Clark Kent: I don't know if you're a ghost from my past or the darkness Jor-El that warned me about, but this will come to an end, just like I did the last time.
Brainiac 5: I hope so for your sake.
Clark Kent: My sake? You sent the person I love away. You tried to destroy Chloe, you tried to destroy the world.
Brainiac 5: And you saved me from all of that, Kal-El. I have come back to do the same for you. (shows wearing Legion ring)
Clark Kent: The Legion. You're from the future. What'd you do to them?
Brainiac 5: I joined them. In the 31st century, I'm known as Brainiac 5. The ring, time travel - all my creatons. I brought the Legion into a new realm of heroism.
Clark Kent: I helped them destroy you.
Brainiac 5: No. They helped you cure me. The problem is Kal-El, you and I aren't very different. We were both created in one way or another by Jor-El, both intended to save civilizations, to bring peace to a brutal world. But neither was immune to corruption to darkness.
Clark Kent: What does that mean? All of sudden everyone's telling me that I have darkness within me. I don't understand what it is or how I'm suppose to change it. You destroyed cities. I may not make the right decisions, but at least I'm trying to save people.
Brainiac 5: Then let me show you, Kal-El. We can't always see it in ourselves, my corruption started with a nanobyte - smaller than the eye can see. But that's all it took.

Future Lois Lane: Wait a minute. Oh, no. Kryptonite again?
Clark Kent: Look, I...
Future Lois Lane: (looks into Clark's eyes) Blue? Red? Not green? Please tell me it's not the black. Because that was a disaster.
Clark Kent: Look, I just... I need the Legion ring. Lois, do you know where it is?
Future Lois Lane: Is that a joke, Clark? Touch it once, shame on you. Touch it twice it, shame on me. And actually, I could really use it right now, because we need to be on the opposite sides of town in ten minutes.

Brainiac 5: I'm only here for you. I wanted to slow things down. Make sure you can soak in this special moment.
Clark Kent: And what's so special about this moment?
Brainiac 5: This is the moment that your life changes forever.

Future Clark Kent: (to Clark, describing his Lois) She's a handful, isn't she? You're right on time.
Clark Kent: You knew I'd be here.
Future Clark Kent: Time travel. Think it through.
Clark Kent: Because you were me when you went through this and I'm...
Future Clark Kent: Well done, my man.
Clark Kent: How did I become so uptight? (looks his future self up and down) And nerdy?
Future Clark Kent: (irritated) There's no time to chat about how, when, and why! We've been through weirder things and I need you on the roof!
Clark Kent: When did I start taking orders?
Future Clark Kent: There's a nuclear reactor that's about to blow on the other side of town. Now, I can't be in two places at once.
Clark Kent: If you knew it was going to happen, then why didn't you stop it?
Future Clark Kent: Because then you wouldn't have experienced all this. And you would never have become me.
Clark Kent: (under his breath) That's too bad.
Future Clark Kent: Roof. Now. (superspeeds away)
Clark Kent: (inspired) That's what I become.

Isis[edit]

[10.05]

Cat Grant: (to Clark) Won't this be the greatest, working together again? Our names looked terrific side-by-side on that byline. I mean, it's like we were meant to be partners, Clark. You're the Popeye to my Olive. The Mickey to my Minnie.
Lois Lane: The sick to my stomach.

(Cat Grant sees Lois and thinking she's the Blur, Cat grabs a pen and stabs her)
Lois Lane: Ow! Uh What the hell? (goes to punch Cat but is stopped by Clark)
Clark Kent: Ladies, who wants to go first?
Lois Lane: She stabbed me!
Cat Grant: (at the same time as Lois) She's the Blur!
Lois Lane: That is the dumbest thing I have ever heard. And I thought you were a bottle blonde.

Clark Kent: In the future, Lois already knew about me. What I didn't see is how I told her and when. My instincts have always been to keep my secret, but then I see five minutes of the future that seems too good to be true, and--
Oliver Queen: You came over here hoping that I would try to talk you out of telling her, right?
Clark Kent: No. Maybe.
Oliver Queen: Well... I hate to break it to you, but I say go for it. Best thing I ever did. I could finally be myself. And it turns out people actually like the real me.
Clark Kent: If I remember correctly, coming out to Lois did not have a happy ending. You told Lois the truth, and she dumped you.
Oliver Queen: That - We broke up. Look, Lois and I were never really meant to be together. Clark, she loves you. That makes you a lucky man. Take it from me, living without love is not really living, it's just sort of existing. The question you have to ask yourself is what are you willing to risk for love?

Tess Mercer: So let me get this straight. Lois finds a necklace, gets possessed by an Egyptian Goddess, and now is flying around like Amelia Earhart, minus the plane.
Oliver Queen: Just another Friday night in Metropolis. Who's ready for the weekend?

Clark Kent: All my life I've been afraid, Lois. Afraid of people knowing the truth about me. Afraid of them rejecting me, and even if they didn't, still losing them. I've been afraid of everything I can't control. But when I was faced with the idea of losing you forever, it made me realize there's something I'd regret more than anything else, and that's not telling you the truth about me. 'Cause that's the only way we could share a life together. I know the odds are stacked against us and we'd be risking everything, but if you're ready to take that leap, there's no one else that I'd want to take that leap with. Lois, you've had a lot of questions about The Blur, it's me. I'm The Blur.
Lois Lane: (jumps on Clark, kissing him) What took you so long?
Clark Kent: (confused, realizing that she already knows) What? You...

Harvest[edit]

[10.06]

Lois Lane: Our "Twilight Zone" acid trip to the, uh, Phantom prison - that place was...
Clark Kent: Kryptonian.
Lois Lane: Mm. And that horny-toad-looking thing that crashed Chloe and Jimmy's wedding?
Clark Kent: Kryptonian.
Lois Lane: Mm. And the spaceship that I found in the woods near the dam?
Clark Kent: Also Kryptonian, but it wasn't mine - it was my cousin's.
Lois Lane: Sorry about the third degree, Clark. It's just not every week a girl learns her boyfriend's an...
Clark Kent: Alien? And you're still okay with that?
Lois Lane: Are you kidding me? It's like dating a god or Bono.

Lois Lane: Meteor rock. Maybe that's why when I pulled that blue dagger out of your chest, you - you healed.
Clark Kent: You did that?
Lois Lane: Yeah.
Clark Kent: Lois, you didn't just heal me, you brought me back. You saved me.
Lois Lane: Well sometimes even the hero needs a guardian angel, Clark.

Christina Lamell: If we don't begin his therapy immediately, he'll be dead within six weeks.
Tess Mercer: That's the point. Because he's not just a clone... he is Lex Luthor.

Lois Lane: Hear me out, Clark. Okay, I wasn't a big fan of Ollie's coming-out party, and I used to think that it was best for you to stay in the shadows, too, but maybe someday soon, you'll have to step into the light. You can be a symbol to inspire everyone that this planet could be a better place.
Clark Kent: I'm not sure anyone's ready to believe a stranger from a strange land.
Lois Lane: If they know the real Clark Kent, then I am sure the rest of the world will believe in you as much as I do.

Clark Kent: If we leave now, we'll be back in a flash.
Lois Lane: Oh, but Clark, I'm such a delicate flower... I will, I will wilt in that heat.

Ambush[edit]

[10.07]

Clark Kent: So, what are you in the mood for?
Lois Lane: Oh, I'm in the mood. Just not for breakfast.
Clark Kent: Lois, the bedroom's upstairs.
Lois Lane: Mm-hmm. But the porch swing -- it's out there.

Clark Kent: (to Oliver, as they are talking in the loft) You got to go.
Oliver Queen: What, the window? What are we, 16?
Clark Kent: Now.

Clark Kent: We look after each other.
Sam Lane: Good. Because if Lois is going to spend any time around here, I've had a look around, and there's a few things that are gonna have to be brought up to code.
Clark Kent: Like scrubbing the bathroom tile with a toothbrush?
Sam Lane: That's number 17 on the list.
Clark Kent: (looks at list) I guess you're not kidding.
Sam Lane: No, I never do.

Clark Kent: It's over, Flag. We know you blew up that building.
Green Arrow: Fancy move attacking your own country.
Rick Flag: I did it for my country. If you kill Lane, you kill a movement. That registration act is nothing but a weapon to profile, hunt, and destroy us.
Green Arrow: We don't need a history lesson.
Rick Flag: Well, apparently you do, Shamrock. You've become the politicians' poster boy for full disclosure. They're gonna be on your doorstep soon, holding you up as a volunteer. Get up all the other heroes to stand up and be counted and be killed.
Clark Kent: We're not gonna let that happen.
Rick Flag: If the bill passes, it already has! Don't you see? America's turning against us. We have got to fight back, show strength, make them choose us as their leaders.
Clark: You'll be stirring up anti-hero hysteria. Violence isn't the answer.
Rick Flag: Violence is the only answer. And more and more superheroes are coming to my side.

Tess Mercer: No need to worry, my friend.
Oliver Queen: I think it's a little early for "friend." "Friendly" -- I can do that. I can be friendly.
Tess Mercer: I'll take it. I was beginning to think the best I could do was "frenemy."
Oliver Queen: I don't even know what that means. We've, uh... We've survived tax audits and typhoons together, Tess. I think we're practically like family at this point.
Tess Mercer: We've come a long way. From the middle of the ocean to the top of the city.
Oliver Queen: I can work with that.

Abandoned[edit]

[10.08]

Granny Goodness: Do you know, I've been always been able to tell an abandoned soul when I see one. It's a gift.
Tess Mercer: Do the girls come here as -- as babies?
Granny Goodness: Unfortunately, tragedy strikes as it pleases. They come at any age.
Tess Mercer: It must be difficult to find the older ones permanent homes.
Granny Goodness: Well, the truth is, by the time I get my hands on the lost souls, they no longer have that cute baby scent childless couples yearn for.
Tess Mercer: The children don't spend their entire childhood here, do they?
Granny Goodness: Oh, mercy me. You make it sound like punishment.

Granny Goodness: I've been training my girls for decades not to blend into society -- but to conquer it. Here...and around the world. My girls know I'll always be here for them. And I know they'll never desert me.

Lois Lane: Hello. Mister...El? I'm here to talk about your son, Clark. Kal-El. Look, I know as a parent, you had to make the hardest decision ever to save your son and send him here alone. When my Mom was dying, she tried to protect me, too. And I love her, but she was wrong. I will never get to hold her again. But you -- you can still be there for Clark -- I mean, Kal-El. Your son needs a father who believes in him. I-I wish I knowing that I loved him was enough. But Clark Kent can't fully hear it with the ghost of your disappointment haunting him. You're stopping him from fulfilling his potential. He's an amazing man. He's a hero. (waits for a response from Jor-El, nothing) Really? Nothing? You know, you may not care about anybody else but yourself, but Clark does. And you're not 1/10 the Kryptonian he is. He's lucky to be rid of you!

Lara: My son, I only had the joy for knowing you a few weeks. I wish I could be with you always to guide you and protect you.
Jor-El: We don’t have much time.
Lara: My dearest Kal-El, our love will always be with you. I can already see you carry within your father's independent spirit.
Jor-El: But, more importantly, your mother’s never ending bravery and her compassionate heart.
Lara: Your father tells me that the new world you are journeying to, Earth, is full of complicated beings capable of great emotion. My wish is for you to live a full and wonderful life, but I need you to know that you were born of a great love. And, your brilliant father has devised a way for you to carry on that love without us.
Jor-El: The ship that I designed to carry you to your destiny can only hold one Kryptonian, one who has so much potential, so unlike your father.
Lara: No.
Jor-El: Your mother and I cannot come with you, to do so would burden your innocent soul with our frailties and our failures. But you have within you, the best of both of us, and I am sending you with all of my knowledge and none of my ego or regrets. They will die with me here on Krypton. Whatever trials I put you through, I will never lose faith in you.
Lara: (Whispers to Jor-El) Quickly, before it's too late. We may not have been able to save our planet...
Jor-El: But we are confident you will become Earth's greatest savior. And never doubt that, just as you're a part of us, we will always be a part of you. Farewell, my son.

Desaad: Godfrey has been chosen. Our Dark Lord has anointed him... made him like us -- a prophet. He is Darkseid's third minion.
Gordon Godfrey: So I do have a higher purpose.
Desaad: Yes, Godfrey. Your golden voice is broadcast around the world.
Granny Goodness: Not impressed. And you -- I see you're enjoying your clubs. They seem more popular than ever.
Desaad: Our unholy trinity is complete. I bind their bodies, Godfrey breaks their spirit, and you, my beloved friend, you clear their minds, preparing the way for Lord Darkseid.

Patriot[edit]

[10.09]

Clark Kent: Seismic activity.
Arthur Curry: That's how Mera found the place. She's pretty amazing -- smart, passionate, fiery. Even helped me understand my true origins.
Clark Kent: You really went off the high dive for her
Arthur Curry: I'm so much more with her than I'm solo.
Clark Kent: You don't feel guilty, putting her in danger?
Arthur Curry: Mera can hold her own. If you're worried about someone a little less superpowered, Mera helped me realize that standing on the sidelines isn't the same as being in the game.

Lieutenant Trotter: Almost done, Mr. Queen.
Oliver Queen: What's with the secret workout room here, huh? Is this a, uh, a secret tryout for the NFL?
Slade Wilson: You're strong and extremely agile with coordination that's off the charts.
Oliver Queen: I'm human.
Slade Wilson: Well, I commend your performance. We'd love to have someone with your gifts serve our country. Help us bring in your less cooperative cohorts.
Oliver Queen: Look, I'll be your poster boy. I'll say your words, I'll be your face, but it ends with me, you understand? Now, there are people out there who want to believe in you. They want to believe in this country. Give them a chance to prove that, to be the heroes that we all need.
Slade Wilson: You got nerve, I like that. But your draft card wasn't a two-for-one special. Please, allow me to make a more convincing argument.

Mera: I am Mera, wife of Orin, future king of the Seven Seas. The one you call Arthur Curry.
Lois Lane: A.C. got married. Aren't you just full of reveals?
Mera: Orin is finally embracing his destiny and leading his people.
Lois Lane: Hang on. "His people." Like, down under and not Australia? Anyway, I need to find Clark.
Mera: Certainly you're not a partner in his endeavors?
Lois Lane: Wow, some people get a ring on their finger, and everyone else's relationship just doesn't cut it.
Mera: Spoken like one who can't be satisfied by a man of her own kind. You desire those who are extraordinary - first Orin, then Oliver, now Clark.
Lois Lane: You've gotta be kidding me? Little Mermaid? Your prince and I dated for a day.
Mera: It's understandable that you would seek a superior being companion. I'm just surprised that powerful men would choose someone of lesser ability.
Lois Lane: Listen, squid lips, you don't know anything about me or Clark.
Mera: I know you came here looking for Clark. You're in the dark...protected but not included. Do you really want the harsh light of truth?

Clark Kent: Slade! I'm not gonna let you continue destroying people's faith in justice.
Slade Wilson: Made of steel, or just a man? You can't be both. (shoots at Clark, bullets ricochet off him) So it is you. (Slade presses a button on the wall, kryptonite-lined wall surrounds Clark)
Clark Kent: What are you doing? I need to get you out of here!
Slade Wilson: This whole place was built for the express purpose of containing your kind. And your weakness was the hardest to learn. You see? You're not above the law. You're not even above me.
Clark Kent: How can you be so determined in seeing us as the enemy, instead of working with us. Look... let me save you. You'll never get out!
Slade Wilson: I know, but it's worth it. To destroy the single greatest threat to democracy, no civilian in this country should be more powerful than the law. That's what keeps the order. That's what keeps us strong.
Clark Kent: Shut it down. Let me help you.
Slade Wilson: I'd rather die for my country than be saved by an abomination like you.
Clark Kent: You asked me a question. I guess you'll get your answer. I am man and steel.

Arthur Curry: Glad you didn't find your Davy Jones down there after that explosion.
Clark Kent: I know how much you love the water, but I couldn't be happier to have my two feet on solid ground.
Arthur Curry: Oh, just as well. 'Cause let's be honest, underwater, you look like a clown fish.

Luthor[edit]

[10.10]

Clark Kent: Emil finally finished working through the files we found after the fire. There's one body still unaccounted for -- LX-15. There's another Lex on the loose.
Tess Mercer: Why look here? I closed the book on this place months ago.
Clark Kent: Supplies are still being sent here.
Tess Mercer: Someone's helping him survive, but you're assuming he's a threat just because he's a Luthor. What ever happened to everyone deserving a second chance?
Clark Kent: No, Luthor blood is Luthor blood. It's poison.

Lionel Luthor-2: The heart -- it'll blind you, son. You want to be your own man. That's natural. But remember, Clark -- I am your father and I alone raised you in my own image to become the man that you are today.
Clark Kent: I must have lost perspective.
Lionel Luthor-2: But that's why I'm here -- to set you back on the right path. You could conquer the universe. The Man of Tomorrow -- Clark Luthor! I sometimes shudder to think what would have happened to my little traveler if he had been discovered in that cornfield by the first ignorant farmer that came along. Where on earth would you be now?

Clark Luthor: Hardly any trace of Lionel at all. It's refreshing, actually...being out from under our father's shadow.
Tess Mercer: Lionel Luthor's been dead for years. Lex killed him.
Clark Luthor: I guess Lex did something right in this place. I got to tell you, sis -- this alternate Earth -- it's a blast. Doesn't feel right, though. Not having blood on my hands before lunch.

Clark Kent: I'm sorry, it's just something I had to do.
Lois Queen: Stay away from me Clark or Ultraman or whoever the hell you are! I know what happens when someone sees your face. Help!
Clark Kent: Lois, where I'm from, Lois Lane, you and I are allies. You always have my back, how else would I know that you're brave and loyal and a force of nature?
Lois Queen: Anybody could have told you that about me.
Clark Kent: Look, You misspell words, simple words at an alarmingly frequent basis. Can you never admit I'm right even when I call you on it?
Lois Queen: Why would I?
Clark Kent: You can always tell when I'm lying, you can see right through me, straight to my soul... to my heart. Lois, there's got to be a part of you that knows I'm telling the truth.
Lois Queen: Who are you?
Clark Kent: My name is Clark Kent and I promise Lois, I will never let this happen to us. I can't live in a world where you don't love me.

Lois Lane: What are these for?
Clark Kent: Nothing says "Sorry My Doppelganger From A Parallel Earth Tried To Kill You" like flowers.
Lois Lane: I think there's a card for that now.
Clark Kent: The store was out. I destroyed the mirror box. You won't ever have to worry about seeing him again.
Lois Lane: He wasn't you, Clark. I mean, not you you.
Clark Kent: Well, I know the circumstances were different from that side, but that was still me in that mirror. And the way you looked at me, Lois, it was so much hate...it was like you already formed your opinion about Clark Luthor -- for good reason. He was a monster. I was a monster.
Lois Lane: Kind of makes you wonder how "Earth Two" Lois Lane managed to put up with such a colossal tool.
Clark Kent: Consider yourself universally consistent. Didn't cut him any slack. But I do think she was about to give him another chance.
Lois Lane: You don't need to worry about second chances with me. You're doing really well with the first one.

Icarus[edit]

[10.11]

Clark Kent: (nervously to Lois) Listen, why don't we go get something to eat at the new place?
Lois Lane: You mean the place that requires reservations six months in advance? That's a nice thought Romeo but we will never get a table
Clark Kent: We will never know unless we ask and I hope the answer is yes.

Oliver Queen: Clark, come on. Now the whole world thinks I'm a terrorist. I mean, that's not exactly something you want on your Fortune 500 bio or at your wedding, so...
Clark Kent: Well, that's too bad, 'cause I was just about to invite you to be my best man. You're the guy who stands next to me on the worst days of my life. And I want you there for the best one, too.
Oliver Queen: Hey, I -- you kidding? Absolutely. Thank you. (shakes Clark's hand)
Carter Hall: All I can say is when it comes to planning the wedding, just nod. A lot.
Oliver Queen: Well, you would know, right? I mean, you married Shayera, what, a hundred times now?
Dr. Emil Hamilton: Well, I've heard of relationships that withstand the test of time, but that's remarkable. Oh, or not, I suppose. For you.

Carter Hall: Even though I married Shayera a hundred times, I had to lose her that many, as well. Now, I know I don't usually get all warm and fuzzy, but I am sorry. About Chloe.
Oliver Queen: You're not gonna hug me now, are you?

Slade Wilson: I was wonder how long you'd hide and let your friends take the fall.
Clark Kent: I heard the explosion. You were in it. How did you...
Slade Wilson: Survive? Let's just say the reaper can swing his sickle at me, but I'm beyond death's stroke now.

Lois Lane: I'll get you help. Okay?
Carter Hall: No. It's too late. Hey. I'm a pro at dying, remember?
Clark Kent: I should have been there, Carter. I'm sorry.
Carter Hall: Can't always be you, Clark. This is all our fight. Listen. Listen! This is what we do. And my passing means I'll be with Shayera again.
Clark Kent: I owe you so much, I don't even know how to begin to thank you.
Carter Hall: You just did. You hold on to her. Because there has to be a balance, Clark. We can't do what we have to do if there's an emptiness in our hearts. Remember that.
Clark Kent: I will. I promise.
Carter Hall: Oh, I am sorry I won't be able to help you fight the darkness. (looks at Lois) But you have all the help that you need.

Collateral[edit]

[10.12]

Chloe Sullivan: You're not hallucinating, Oliver, and you're not insane. Trust me.
Oliver Queen: Really? Well, that's kind of hard to believe, considering you just materialized out of a wall.

Chloe Sullivan: I've got to get you out of here.
Oliver Queen: Chloe? Hate to rain on your program, but I'm in a straightjacket. I'm in a cell in a lockdown wing of a hospital. I-I'm not going anywhere.
Chloe Sullivan: Only if you believe that's true. Simple mind over matter. Because I believe everything I see is fake, I'm not limited by it. I have power. The sooner you believe everything you see is fantasy, the sooner you can manipulate it. Break free of it.
Oliver Queen: (straightjacket disappears) How'd you do that?
Chloe Sullivan: I didn't. You did.

Lois Lane: Chloe would never hurt Oliver.
Dinah Lance: Not unless he got in her way, like these guys. (they watch a video of Chloe gunning down VRA guards)
Lois Lane: Well, I can't be right. And I hate to crash on your tea party, but my cousin is no Benedict Arnold.
Dinah Lance: She's taking out operatives in cold blood, Lois! I don't know whose side she's on, but it's not ours!
Lois Lane: Not everybody switches sides as easily as some of us. And let's not forget, when we first met Black Canary, she was nothing more than Lex Luthor's little organ-grinder monkey. I mean, did you ever look to see who the bad guys really are before you start throwing knives and spin-kicks there, chickadee?
Dinah Lance: Violent criminals deserve to fry. And if your cousin's one of them, well, that's a campfire that I'm not afraid to sing around.

Clark Kent: How'd you do it? Trust me, I mean - back then, before you found out.
Chloe Sullivan: I had my suspicions.
Clark Kent: But that's what I mean. You knew I was lying to you, and still you looked me in the eye every day and you trusted me.
Chloe Sullivan: I guess that's the true test of believing in someone -- knowing that their lies are there to protect you. It's not really trust if you ask someone to explain themselves.
Clark Kent: But that's hard.
Chloe Sullivan: It's really hard.
Clark Kent: You never gave up.
Chloe Sullivan: And I never will.

Clark Kent: I've been thinking about what you said -- that I should shut my eyes and ears to the outside world to figure what's true. You made me believe. And you got me to fly. Even if it was just in cyberspace.
Lois Lane: Well, I have to say Smallville, that soaring over the Daily Planet and the spires of Metropolis was amazing.
Clark Kent: Well, who knows? Maybe one day, we'll get to fly in the real world.
Lois Lane: I've always believed that you can do the impossible, and one day you will.

Beacon[edit]

[10.13]

Clark Kent: Mom, people are upset. They're getting violent.
Martha Kent: Clark, if you don't let me do this, there will never be a day where you can come out of hiding. People need someone to believe in.
Clark Kent: I'm not gonna let you sacrifice yourself.
Martha Kent: Your father and I made a pact many years ago. We knew protecting you would always be dangerous, but we vowed to do it, even if it cost us our lives. I'm willing to sacrifice the same thing your father did.
Clark Kent: But I'm not gonna to let go on a suicide mission for me. And the person who did this to you is still out there, and I'm gonna find them. I'm not ready to say goodbye to you, too.

Chloe Sullivan: You know, who would have thought there would have been a day when heroes need this much protection?
Martha Kent: It's nothing new. A long time ago, Jonathan and I realized Clark wasn't just our blessing. Someday we'd have to share him with the world. Protecting him suddenly became a much bigger responsibility.
Chloe Sullivan: That explains why the Red Queen eventually entered the game.
Martha Kent: I've been watching you, too. I know you took over where Waller left off, but why did you leave Clark's side in the first place?
Chloe Sullivan: Same reason you did. It turns out there's a very fine line between being protective and being overprotective.
Martha Kent: We both needed to leave for Clark to stand up on his own. But maybe we stepped away too far.
Chloe Sullivan: Mrs. Kent, I never stopped watching his back.
Martha Kent: Clark needs you as much as the world needs him. You're part of this family, Chloe.
Chloe Sullivan: You know, growing up, I never really had much of a mother figure to look up to -- until I met you. You really taught me what it meant to take care of the people that I love.
Martha Kent: And as Clark's oldest friend, I can't think of anyone better to watch over him.

Oliver Queen: (to Alexander) So, what was that this morning, huh? Was that, uh -- was that your idea to show daddy you got the killer instinct, too? Is that what that was?
Lionel Luthor-2: Are you making an accusation against my son? No one will take your word, you're a convicted felon. You should have stayed out of the spotlight, but you wanted celebrity. You made one fatal mistake -- you trusted them, the people. They're vulgar, uneducated, and stupid, and they don't even know when you're fighting for them. Must be heart-wrenching.
Oliver Queen: Well, you got it all figured out. I'll tell you what -- I wouldn't underestimate the common man in tomorrow's vote. When the VRA's repealed and my name is cleared, I'm coming after you.
Lionel Luthor-2: No, you're wrong. Tomorrow, the people will turn on you again, believe me. You missed the mark, Green Arrow.
Alexander Luthor: And now its our turn... again.

Alexander Luthor: No second chances, Lionel. It's time to end this family feud.
Lionel Luthor-2: Alexander, please listen to me.
Alexander Luthor: I know I'm dying. I'm aging faster and faster. I have all of Lex's memories. And he despised every single one of you.
Lionel Luthor-2: Listen. Listen to me, son. Don't let hate master you. Make it your servant. Use it. Let it build inside of you. Hate can make you strong. I can teach you how.
Alexander Luthor: There's nothing left for you to teach me.

Clark Kent: I want to be the man that you made that suit for.
Martha Kent: Clark, you don't need a suit the be the world's hero.
Clark Kent: Well, when I saw those people willing to defend me, it was inspiring. It got me to thinking that, in order for The Blur to be a true beacon of hope, maybe people need to see my face, too. I've been to the future, and I saw the hero that I will become to save the city. But I also saw me -- I mean... Clark Kent -- disguised behind glasses and a bad haircut.
Martha Kent: Well, I'm sure you still looked very handsome.
Clark Kent: Mom, I don't how I can treat Clark Kent as a disguise. I mean, you and dad raised me to be who I am right now -- the real Clark Kent.
Martha Kent: What's real is your strength and integrity and compassion. As long as you remain honest to those things, it doesn't matter what you wear or what name you go by, because... you'll always be my son.
Clark Kent: So, you're saying that I should become that hero and step into the light?
Martha Kent: Clark, you are the light.

Masquerade[edit]

[10.14]

Lois Lane: My Turkish is a little rusty, but it seems someone managed to pull off a supersave there, and now Ankara's also wondering who America's Blur hero is. Meanwhile, in Buenos Aires, they are offering a national commendation to "El Salvador de Rojo y Azul" if he'd stand still long enough to receive it. And I won't even bother with the Chinese because I would just sound racist.

Oliver Queen: Ya know, when I said that I wanted to spoon you later, this isn't really what I had in mind.
Chloe Sullivan: We're lying alone together in the dark, okay. I think that counts for something.
Oliver Queen: Yeah, you're probably right. This is definitely the most romantic of my recent kidnappings. Helluva way to spend an anniversary, right? (Chloe is guilty silent) Oh, gee...you forgot!
Chloe Sullivan: No. No. No! I did not forget that it's been a year since we started doing.... whatever it is that we've been doing.
Oliver Queen: Whatever it is that we've...wow. You weren't joking around at the restaurant, were ya? You don't know what to call me.
Chloe Sullivan: Not in so many words.
Oliver Queen: Okay!
Chloe Sullivan: (car hits a bump) Ow!.... Oliver!
Oliver Queen: We spend every waking moment together. We've said our "I love yous" how many times, huh? Several. What do you call that?
Chloe Sullivan: Can we talk about this later?
Oliver Queen: Yeah, no... I'd love to do that... If there is a later.
Chloe Sullivan: (sighing) You're so dramatic.

Desaad: I was wondering when we would meet again.
Clark Kent: What exactly are you, Desaad?
Desaad: A prophet. A servant, loyal to a far greater power.
Clark Kent: The darkness.
Desaad: To Darkseid. When he last laid his eyes upon you, you wore your sin openly. You're much more self-assured now. More love in your heart than when you faced Godfrey. Stronger than when you faced Granny, as well. Sadly incorruptible. They, much like I, have been preparing for something...amazing.
Clark Kent: And that's why the three of you have been burning your Omega symbols on innocent people.
Desaad: You act as though the marks weren't there to begin with...but I wouldn't want to ruin the surprise.

Clark Kent: And I should be wearing a mask. Unfortunately, I've lived my entire life up until this point without needing one. That's why I've been so reluctant. I mean, this is the face that my parents raised. It's the face of the man that you love. And I don't want to deny who I am when I'm out there doing what I was born to do.
Lois Lane: Then why bother with the jacket, Clark, the symbols?
Clark Kent: When I'm out there in the red and blue, and I'm saving people, that's who I really am. And I know this is gonna sound weird, but it's not what I'm called that should define who I am. It's who I am that should define what I'm called. Clark Kent - it's...it's just a name. It's just a word. I am The Blur, and I always have been.

Lois Lane: Clark, you can't just whip out a new costume at work.
Clark Kent: The Blur is not the disguise, Lois. Clark Kent will be the mask.
Lois Lane: Okay. Okay, but the only way the glasses are ever going to work...
Clark Kent: If I adjust my behavior when I use them. I know. The world needs to believe that Clark Kent is way too normal to be...
Lois Lane: Super.
Clark Kent: And even though we silenced Godfrey, we shutdown Granny's orphanage, and buried Desaad underneath Belle Reve, it's not the last time we've seen Darkseid. But I'll be ready...(puts on glasses)...hiding in plain sight.
Lois Lane: So you're willing to dial back the hometown hero and crank up the Average Joe?
Clark Kent: If that's what it takes to be the hero the people need, (glasses slide down a little; he pushes glasses up nose in iconic fashion)...yes, Miss Lane, I am.

Fortune[edit]

[10.15]

Clark Kent: (to Chloe) You don't think we...?
Chloe Sullivan: Exchanged vows?
Clark Kent: Uh, well, I mean...
Chloe Sullivan: Said "I do"?
Clark Kent: ...both...
Chloe Sullivan: Did the deed? God, don't say the word "consummate." The answer has to be "no."

Oliver Queen: How the hell did we end up here, anyway?
Lois Lane: Oh, I have no idea. But in that green getup of yours, we're gonna stand out like a hooker in a church.
Oliver Queen: (looks down and notice he's wearing a sea foam colored tuxedo jacket) What?
Lois Lane: Yeah.
Oliver Queen: What is this?

Amos Fortune: You are an eye full. You know, like the Tower in Paris. You put these other hothouse girls to shame.
Oliver Queen: Thanks, man.

Chloe Sullivan: You're not alone, Clark Kent. In all my globe-trotting, I have met several others like you - a billionaire with high tech toys and a wondrous woman who's gonna throw you for a loop.

Tess Mercer: Hey, hound dog. You really rocked this town.
Dr. Emil Hamilton: I suppose that's supposed to be humorous?
Tess Mercer: It's just... well, it was a nice surprise to see our mild-manner doctor have a special power of his own.

Scion[edit]

[10.16]

Lionel Luthor-2: I applaud your efforts, but you can't hide Alexander from me forever.
Tess Mercer: I'm saving him from an encore performance of "Daddy Dearest".
Lionel Luthor-2: Give me my son.
Tess Mercer: I'm surprised that you are so hell-bent on this family reunion, given the fact that on this world it was Lex that sent Lionel plummeting to his death.
Lionel Luthor-2: That's proof that the Lex you knew was a true Luthor.

Clark Kent: Conner has... he's only half Lex, it turns out.
Lois Lane: What? Okay, if you say the other half is Tess, I'm going to officially write that family off for good.
Clark Kent: Lois, the other half is me.
Lois Lane: Are you trying to tell me that Conner is the genetic love child of Clark Kent and Lex Luthor?
Clark Kent: You don't have to say it like that.

Clark Kent: Everything we do with our abilities is our responsibility. That's why we have to learn to control them before they control us. That's why we practice.
Conner Kent: I lifted the tractor without any practice.
Clark Kent: When you put it down, you broke the beam behind the stall.

Lionel Luthor-2: (incapacitates Clark with kryptonite) No. You'll never take my son.
Conner Kent: What are you doing?!
Lionel Luthor-2: Eliminating the one person who stands in the way of your destiny.
Clark Kent: Let him go!
Lionel Luthor-2: Let's go, son. Remember who you are. You are meant to become a god. Together, we can make sure you do.
Conner Kent: I know who I am. (destroys the kryptonite with his heat vision to save Clark)

Conner Kent: I'm not like you, Clark. I mean, maybe on the outside with what I can do, but what that ring brought out in me -- that was all Lex.
Clark Kent: There's a shadow inside all of us. But that doesn't mean you need to embrace it. You decide who you really are. And I know you'll make the right choice and become the hero you're destined to be.
Conner Kent: That means a lot coming from you. Well, if you feel that way, maybe, uh, I should start dressing for the part. (opens his jacket, revealing a black t-shirt with House of El family crest) I know I have a lot to learn. But when you feel I'm ready to join the team, I'd like to.

Kent[edit]

[10.17]

Lois Lane: You want to help me out here?
Clark Luthor: You're kinda cute when you squirm.
Lois Lane: Okay, bonus.

Clark Luthor: Listen, Tess, I know better than anyone what it's like to walk around with a--a mark on you. It's lonely.
Tess Mercer: Being the world's greatest hero is just a little bit different than being Satan's child.
Clark Luthor: Angel or devil is in the eye of he who beholds it.
Tess Mercer: "He who beholds it"? What have you been watching a little too much BBC lately?

Clark Kent: Look, this may be hard for you to understand considering everything that's happened to you in this world. You taught me so much. You taught me to be fair and honest. You taught me the only person in control of your destiny...
Jonathan Kent-2: Is you.
Clark Kent: You were the man that I tried to live up to. You didn't have powers, and you didn't have a destiny to save the world, but you were my hero. And I lost you.

Jonathan Kent-2: You don't even know me. I'm just an obsessed man hanging onto a place as if memories could make up a lifetime.
Clark Kent: This place isn't your home. Martha is. It's not the place, it's the people in it. And Martha's still here. You still have a chance. It's better to risk everything than hold onto nothing.
Jonathan Kent-2: Who told you that?
Clark Kent: You did.

Clark Kent: You made yourself the most hated man in your world. But there's still a chance of redemption for you.
Clark Luthor: Redemption? Looks like the two of us have different preoccupations.
Clark Kent: I'm sorry that you weren't found by Jonathan and Martha Kent. The thing is, you could have killed Tess in an instant. But something was holding you back. You can go to your world and show people what you can give them, change their minds.
Clark Luthor: Why would you ever believe in me?
Clark Kent: Because I know you. And Lionel's not there anymore. You don't need to be defined by your past, you can choose a different future. So trust me.

Booster[edit]

[10.18]

Jaime Reyes: Who are you?
Booster Gold: I'm sure you're all wondering who I am. Well, how about the 411? I'm pure gold, ladies and gentlemen. I am Booster Gold, the greatest hero you've never heard of...till now!

Clark Kent: (to Booster Gold) The suit doesn't make the hero. A hero's made in the moment by the choices that he makes and the reasons that he makes them. A hero brings out the best in people. I don't doubt behind that star, there is a hero...but I haven't seen him. Not yet.

Skeets: May I offer a piece of advice from your former career, sir?
Booster Gold: Football?
Skeets: Go big or go home.

Booster Gold: Well, you know what? I've got some advice for you too.
Clark Kent: What's that?
Booster Gold: "The Blur." No. No, no, no. It sounds like a roller coaster or something. You need something strong. You need something simple. Something that actually starts with that "S" you wear. Something...super. You got to brand it, baby. You know?
Clark Kent: I'll start brainstorming.

Ted Kord: This boy is absolutely unique. He managed to shut down the scarab.
Lois Lane: I'm guessing not everyone has what it takes to do that. So, Mr. Kord, does this mean that you'll be able to remove it from him?
Jaime Reyes: I-- No. I mean, will that take away the powers it gives me?
Ted Kord: Yes, but--
Jaime Reyes: I want to learn how to use them. I want to be a hero like Booster Gold.
Booster Gold: I don't know, kid. You know... what do you say we give Miss Lane here an exclusive on the real hero of the day?

Dominion[edit]

[10.19]

Clark Kent: Hey, Lois. Where can I put this box?
Lois Lane: Well, I don't think that requires any super-sleuthing. It does say "living room."
Clark Kent: No, I can decipher your scrawl. I'm just thinking it was mislabeled.
Lois Lane: If you're talking about my Whitesnake throw pillow, loving everything about me includes the sentimental. I made this from my 8th grade concert t-shirt. And I talked to Oliver, and he told me how smoothly he and Chloe fused their hero green and geek chic.
Clark Kent: Don't worry. My "for better or worse" will include your love of hair metal.

Oliver Queen: Listen, about this Zone, Clark -- You know, when you said Jor-El built a prison, I kind of pictured something more confined than a national park.
Clark Kent: He built this place so Krypton's worst criminals could have some kind of life.
Oliver Queen: Sounds like a real sweetheart.

General Zod: I know, it's a terrible feeling. So powerless when you know you've got such strength inside of you, with no way of unleashing it.
Clark Kent: Even without the yellow sun, I will find a way to defeat you.
General Zod: You'll have to work twice as hard. Because when I arrived here, I met a very special acquaintance, someone you know, and someone that I'm very, very...fond of.
Clark Kent: Who?
General Zod: Me.
Clark Kent: The original Zod's phantom.
General Zod: Finally back in the body that you stripped me of. Now I have the full knowledge of two lives, and you...you are my enemy in both.
Clark Kent: I defeated you in both.
General Zod: Which is why it will give double the satisfaction to see you kneel...and serve...until you die.

Clark Kent: You have the console crystal. How?
General Zod: We're blood brothers, Kal-El. Have you forgotten how you healed me with your blood on Earth?
Clark Kent: We're not brothers. I saved you because it was the right thing to do. We have nothing in common.
General Zod: We're from the same world. Do you really think that having powers is the only thing that makes you Kryptonian? It's not. We share the same instincts. We're decisive...single-minded, headstrong. We were meant to be leaders.
Clark Kent: Leaders? You're a tyrant who believes only in himself.
General Zod: Who else should I put my faith in? We both know that trusting others is a calculated risk, one a Kryptonian is not willing to take. Oh, we can easily fool those closest to us, can't we? But we can lean on no one. Do you remember that most famous story about two brothers from your adopted planet? You've got Cain and Abel. Which brother are you, Kal-El?
Clark Kent: Well, I'd never murder you. I saved you.
General Zod: You exiled me. I'm in charge here. And you're about to find out what that means, brother.

General Zod: I've seen what Darkseid is capable of.
Oliver Queen: What do you know?
General Zod: After the Kandorians sent me here, a very powerful entity came looking for me. Darkseid promised me lordship of this dominion if I solved one problem for him.
Oliver Queen: Clark.
General Zod: Darkseid has certain ambitions for your planet.
Oliver Queen: The thing is, we took care of that. We blocked him. Took out three of his three little minions, too.
General Zod: Kal-El might delude himself as usual, that's how he's won, but there are millions -- millions on Earth just waiting to surrender to the will of Darkseid, and you friend, are one of them.

Prophecy[edit]

[10.20]

Jor-El: Kal-El, my son, you have returned.
Clark Kent: Jor-El, I come here today as a Kryptonian, as a member of your house, and your son. In honor of our home, I'm here to declare my desire to start a life bond with this woman...Lois Lane.
Jor-El: Lois Lane, do you truly intend to initiate a life union with my son?
Lois Lane: I do.
Jor-El: Your pledge is observed. If your lives are to be joined, then you must both understand.

Oliver Queen: I'm starting to regret not packing my intergalactic dictionary about now. No way these are Celtic.
Kara Kent: No. They're Apokolyptian.
Oliver Queen: (sees Kara trapped in a ray beam) You're Clark's cousin, Kara, right?
Kara Kent: Yeah.
Oliver Queen: How long have you been down here? I got to get you out.
Kara Kent: No, wait. It'll kill you. (throws a rock at the ray beam, rock disintegrates)
Oliver Queen: Right. Okay. There's got to be some way to turn off this death ray from hell.

Oliver Queen: So let me get this straight -- whoever wields the Bow of Orion can use it to vanquish darkness. Is that what you're saying?
Kara Kent: According to the prophecy, yeah.
Oliver Queen: Well, that's me. Think about it -- a bow, right? The medium is the message.
Kara Kent: You never told me why you were seeking it.
Oliver Queen: Well, promise you won't tell anyone, but I'm trying to change my fate. The Bow of Orion is the key. It worked for him, right?
Kara Kent: Only after he found the strength to turn away from the darkness, even though that meant turning away from his father.
Oliver Queen: Orion is Darkseid's son.
Kara Kent: Yes. He was raised by someone who believes in spreading the light instead of the darkness his birthfather created. And eventually he swore to serve that light instead.

Jor-El: There are two paths laid before you, Kara. You can leave Earth now and allow Kal-El to embrace his destiny, or you can stay and help him, risking the future of this planet.
Kara Kent: Kal-El and I have fought Darkseid before.
Jor-El: You involved Kal-El against my wishes. He was too weak then, and he was almost overcome by darkness. You have grown strong. Your will is no longer at the mercy of my command. You will need that strength to forge your own path. It is in your hands to choose.
Kara Kent: You want me to just walk away?
Jor-El: Kara, your own destiny is written. It is in another place and time. But this is Kal-El's battle, and he must fight it alone. Even though a time will come when he turns away from me, in the end, he will make the right decision. He is ready. This is his time.
Kara Kent: He's the only family I have left. I have to at least warn him.
Jor-El: Sometimes the greatest sacrifice a person can make is to give up what they hold most dear.

Jor-El: Kal-El, I trust you found my gift to the both of you illuminating.
Clark Kent: It wasn't a gift. It was a trial. And it wasn't about Lois appreciating what it was like to have my abilities or me realizing what it was like to be human. It was about control.
Jor-El: Your trials are not a riddle, Kal-El. They are stepping stones on a long path.
Clark Kent: A path that I have blindly walked forever, but I understand now. This whole time, it's been up to me to decide when to take control of my own destiny. The trials end when I'm ready for them to end.
Jor-El: Your journey is far from over.
Clark Kent: But I can only be what the world needs when I can finally admit that I am no longer just the son of Jor-El or Jonathan Kent. And you knew the time would come when neither of you can guide me anymore, and that time...is now. Goodbye, Jor-El.

Finale Part 1[edit]

[10.21]

Chloe Sullivan: "This is the story of an amazing boy who grew up in the fields of Kansas in a little town called Smallville. When he became a man, he believed the only way to seize his destiny was to turn his back on both his parents and refused to see the darkness descending on Earth. But all that was about to change. He was about to face his greatest challenge."

Granny Goodness: I want to give your soul eternal life! Please, Lutessa, let me save you!
Tess Mercer: From what?
Granny Goodness: Darkseid's Apokolips. Evil in its purest form -- the heart of human nature, obscured over time as something to be cast away rather than embraced. Hades, Kali -- even the word "Lucifer" is an old Latin phrase meaning "morning star," "bringer of light." I'm afraid the centuries and translations have twisted Darkseid's true gifts. But before the end of days, his rapture will be the only salvation.
Tess Mercer: I will never join you.
Granny Goodness: Farewell, my child. Bless your soul.
Tess Mercer: Wait. When? I mean, what do you mean? When? When is this hell coming?
Granny Goodness: It's not coming, Lutessa. It's upon us.

Lois Lane: There's no Chloe quip that's gonna change my mind. Clark can hear the world's cries for help, and he's duty-bound to answer the call. I'm not gonna stand in his way.
Chloe Sullivan: He can't listen all the time, Lois. He's not God. He can't be aware of every bird or blade of grass, okay? He's a man. And sometimes he needs to not listen. He needs to rest, to love, to laugh. And when he finally does to decide to take to the skies, he's gonna need you to ground him.
Lois Lane: Well, that's what I'm afraid of. I'm grounding him, keeping him from soaring to new heights.
Chloe Sullivan: Oh, Lois...that is so not what he thinks. But since you're not gonna meet him at the altar...(gives Clark's vows to her)...you should hear that from his own words.

Lois Lane: (wedding vows to Clark) I wanted these vows to be perfect, but perfection's a hard thing to get your hands on. But life is meant to be a little messy. And when it comes to love, I think it's like my dad always said about the army. You only sign up if it's the only thing you can ever imagine doing. And Clark, I cannot imagine spending a moment of my life without you. So I promise that I will always have your back as you will always have mine. You're my best friend, you're my home, and you are my true love, and I am yours and will be forever.

Clark Kent: (wedding vows to Lois) I Clark Kent take you Lois Lane to be my companion, forever. And with you by my side I will never be alone. Though the world sees a strong and independent woman, I've never known someone with such gentle grace and more pure heart. When I've been lost you've always been there to bring me back, so on this day, at this moment, I pledge the rest of my life to you. You've always believed in me, and I believe in you. And when you believe in someone it's not for a minute, or just for now, it's forever.

Finale Part 2[edit]

[10.22]

Clark Kent: Lois, we know the prophets use the people's darkness to mark them with an Omega. What we don't know is why. And Tess quoted one of the prophecies as saying that the markings weren't just spiritual. There's some sort of anti-life dark force that could bring about the Apokolips.
Lois Lane: You mean like bringing a giant planet crashing into ours?
Clark Kent: Exactly like that. Maybe the marking has some sort of unexplainable gravitational pull.
Lois Lane: Too bad anti-life equations aren't covered in Physics 101.
Clark Kent: I need to figure out a way to lift the darkness and break whatever's binding these people to that planet.
Lois Lane: Today definitely tops Chloe's Wall of Weird. Exactly how many are marked?
Clark Kent: (scans the people in the room with his x-ray vision, they are marked with the Omega) More than you want to know.

Lex Luthor: Hello, Clark. Can't say I love what you've done with the place.
Clark Kent: Lex.
Lex Luthor: You still say it the same way -- astonishment mixed with a hint of dread, yet... with a hopeful finish.
Clark Kent: You're alive.
Lex Luthor: Seems my father had a... a change of heart. And I got a second chance of life.
Clark Kent: Where's Tess? What have you done with her?!
Lex Luthor: She's fine. I wouldn't worry so much about my dear little sister. You know, I used to think it was our families who made us who we are. Then I hoped it was our friends. But if you look at history, the great men and women of the world have always been defined by their enemies.
Clark Kent: You have a second chance. You can change all that.
Lex Luthor: But that's the thing about memories -- you can't forget them. Like how you're always one step ahead of me, Clark. No matter how meticulously I prepared, no matter how strategic I was, if only I'd known I never stood a chance.
Clark Kent: It wasn't a competition.
Lex Luthor: Of course it wasn't. You were born to be the chosen one. You're simply better than us.
Clark Kent: And that always killed you.
Lex Luthor: No. No, what killed me is that you didn't even want it. You fought it -- you hid from it! I would have taken it and relished it, embraced it.
Clark Kent: My destiny wasn't yours to take!
Lex Luthor: I get that now. Which is why I finally embraced my own. You and I... we will both be great men. Because of each other, we have a destiny together, Clark... only on different sides.
Clark Kent: I'll always be there to stop you. Always.
Lex Luthor: Oh, I'm counting on it.

Jor-El: Your journey has come to an end, Kal-El.
Clark Kent: I shouldn't have tried to push away my Kryptonian side. My strength is accepting it -- accepting you.
Jor-El: You honor me. A father's pride cannot be measured in words, but know that I'm proud of you, son.
Clark Kent: You have no idea how long I've waited to hear you say that.
Jor-El: We have been down our long road, Kal-El -- one paved with difficult trials. Those trials are behind you now. Any father can only hope that he is one day humbled by the feats of his son. But it is your soul, Kal-El, of which I am most proud. You -- and you alone -- possess the courage, the determination, and the compassion that will be required of you to lift the darkness from the Earth. (returns the suit to Clark) I ask you to remember one thing. Your abilities may be of my blood, but it is your time in Smallville, with Jonathan and Martha Kent and all the people there, that made you a hero, Kal-El.
Jonathan Kent: Always hold on to Smallville. (hands the suit over to Clark)

Lois Lane: How many "Great Caesar's ghosts"?
Jimmy Olsen: Four, before his coffee. But...did you get my shots?
Lois Lane: Love the framing, love the colors. Where's the drama?
Jimmy Olsen: Um... Um, did you see the one with the elephant?
Lois Lane: The Man of Steel deserves something better than a circus incident and a fender-bender. I want pecs, I want cape, I want pearly whites.
Jimmy Olsen: Yes, Miss Lane.
Lois Lane: Great. Your brother left big shoes for you to fill, Olsen. I know you're up to the task.

Clark Kent: (The last line of the series, to Lois) Just tell the minister I'm gonna be a few minutes late.
