  • Another one of those Smallville weight-watcher episodes - light on plot, character devlopment and action.

  • Quotes (9)

    • Jonathan: Something must be wrong if (Clark) just stuck his head in the refrigerator and didn't eat the last piece of cherry pie.

    • Martha: What did Lana say?
      Clark: She said yes so fast it gave me whiplash.

    • Jonathan: Look, Clark, jealousy is a tough emotion. Clark: Dad I'm not jealous! Jonathan: Huh.... Clark: Well, maybe a little bit.

    • Lana: How tasteless is this (glass snowball)? I think they even used real meteor rocks. Chloe: The American version of closure. You can only get over your grief when you figure out how to merchandise your tragedy.

    • Chloe: You're a Luthor so it's a given that you're unscrupulous, but I really thought petty larceny was beneath you, Lex. Lex: Could you be a little more specific with the charge?

    Notes (6)

    • On the DVD there is a deleted scene where Seth finds the same man who injured him in a cell, and Seth uses his powers to mind control the man to have him kill himself.

    • The Lowell County Fairgrounds scenes were filmed at the Playland Amusement Park in Vancouver.

    • We see another reference to Lowell County (on the fair sign), a fictional county in Kansas.

    • We only hear Camille Mitchell as Sheriff Adams over the loudspeaker and maybe see her at a distance in a police car - she doesn't actually clearly appear on screen.

    • John Glover does not appear in this episode.

    Trivia (25)

    • The article on Morgan Edge that Lex shows Chloe has several incomplete sentences and misspells the word "thief" as "theif." It also declares that Edge's body has been recovered and will be examined before being put to rest in the cemetery. However, despite that he reappears in the next episode.

    • In this episode, Lana tells Clark, at the end, that one day, someone will come along who is right for her, and Clark will just have to deal with that. Yet in the last episode, Lana stated that she would wait as long as he needed for them to be together.

    • Why did the police not think that Lana had something to do with the stolen car? She was the only one on the scene when the sheriff pulled up... no one saw the boy run off, and it was never mentioned that the car was stolen by a male. It seems like the police see or help Lana everyday, but never ask her how she got into that position.

    • In the medical records room, Chloe says, "Assuming we can prove that Seth can manipulate metal with his mind..." In the scene just before that, Seth closes his locker door with his powers in front of everyone plus closes everyone else's locker doors in front of everyone else. If that's not proof enough...

    • In the Sea of Love scene in the confrontation between Clark and Seth, there is a shot of Clark getting up from behind the car after having jumped behind it to avoid the gunfire by Seth. The shot shows Clark getting up and sweeping the slugs off his shoulders. In the following shot where Seth's in the process of pulling a car off to fling at Clark, you can see Clark getting up and sweeping the slugs off his shoulders again in the background.
