    • Lois: (asks Chloe) Hey cuz, what's the latest headline? Chloe: Busy writing story... Lois: Looks like someone woke up on the right side of the bed this morning. Chloe: (hints that Lois slept with her editor) At least I woke up in my own bed.

    • Chloe: Blood and sweat on Clark Kent are never a good combination. Hey, listen, a little advice. Until your wedding day, refrain from wearing rings of any kind.

    • Chloe: Hey! Hey! Hey! I know the blue K is seriously cramping your style, but you don't have to grind your finger off! Clark: Chloe, I don't know what else to do. It's unbreakable. Chloe: Okay, look, considering what all the other flavors of kryptonite do, being normal may not be such a bad thing.

    • Lex: Look, for all I care, you can date every girl from the copy room to the boardroom, just not Lois Lane. Gabriel: I don't get it. What's wrong with Lois Lane, other than her bad spelling? Lex: The woman has an insatiable curiosity. It's only a matter of time before she connects the dots.

    • Chloe: Lois, gossip spreads faster than a bad rash. And sooner or later, people are gonna start scratching, assuming one thing--Lois Lane jump-started her career on her managing editor's Diehard battery.

    Notes (6)

    • Aaron Ashmore is credited but doesn't appear.

    • Terence Stamp is credited as Special Guest Star.

    • Helen Slater is credited by character name.

    • Kara mentions that she has been surfing with Jimmy while on a trip to Coast City. In the comics, Coast City is the home of Hal Jordan, Earth's Green Lantern. It's also an important city in Superman's history as well, as it was the city that was destroyed by the Cyborg-Superman, one of the four men who claimed to be Superman, resurrected after his battle with Doomsday.

    • Blue Kryptonite has appeared in the comics. However, its effects are quite different from that in this episode. Pre-Crisis, Blue Kyptonite hurt Bizarro like Green Kryptonite hurts Superman. Post-Crisis, it makes Bizarro speak normally and makes him kindhearted. Throughout the comics Blue Kryptonite does not appear to have any effect on Superman.

    Trivia (3)

    • The Dagger had gibberish Kryptonian on it. It spells out.... R T D S M E.

    • As established in "Memoria," Julian Luthor was born in 1992. That would make him 15 here, which is clearly impossible.

    • Kara's crystal looks very different in this episode than it does in previous episodes. In "Lara" for example, the crystal was rather thin, and had ribs, or finger grips. Here, it is much thicker and the grips are missing.

    Allusions (1)

    • Chloe: You said it was bad but I didn't expect Raging Bull bad. Referencing the nickname of boxer Jake La Motta, immortalized in the 1980 movie Raging Bull.
