    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (2)

      • Goof: When Superman lands to start the duel with Nor, you can distinctly see the strings attached to him to give him the appearance of flying.

      • Goof: When Nor is trying to kill Superman with the dray, Superman grabs hold of the round end of the dray and you can see his fingers imprinting in the ball. Clark and Nor were undoubtedly strong enough to affect the dray this was, but the imprint does not remain after Clark lets it go as it would if this had been the case. Most likely the prop was made of foam to prevent anyone from getting hurt by it.

    • QUOTES (8)

      • Lois: Did any part of meeting up with your roots feel good? I mean, was it satisfying in any way or was it a disappointment to you?
        Clark: Maybe all of those. I kept waiting for this incredible feeling of connection. You know, like I was exactly where I belong and that's only happened to me once in my life.
        Lois: When?
        Clark: The day I met you.
        Lois: For a spaceman you are the most romantic person I know.

      • Clark: The more that I try to be Kal-El, the more that I know that I am Clark.

      • Ching: (trying to convince Clark that he will have to kill in the duel against Lord Nor) It is part of the Kryptonian will that lies within you.
        Clark: I've never believed in killing. I've closed my mind to Kryptonian instincts like that.

      • Zara: (Saying goodbye to Clark) I said once that you had been on this sloppy planet too long, and now I think it's true of me, too. For the first time in my life, I have tears.

      • Nor's Henchman: Citizen's committee's drawn up a petition. They demand more food and water for the people.
        Lord Nor: Oh, that's only fair. Kill the committee, and distribute their portion among the rest. (Pause) Leadership is problem solving.

      • Colonel Cash: We got a wacko Martian on our hands, and he's got to be taken out!
        Trey & Ching: Martian?
        Colonel Cash: A generic term for anyone who's never had a Big Mac.

      • Clark: Lois, I'm gonna beat this guy Nor. And then the Kryptonians can go back, and they can solve their own problems. And faster than a speeding bullet, you and I are gonna get married.
        Lois: Can you make it any faster than that?

      • Clark: It's not me who kept you from the throne. It's the law of your own people.
        Nor: On the contrary, the law of my people will place me on the throne! You are under arrest.
        Clark: Under arrest for what?
        Martha: He hasn't done anything.
        Jonathan: You're the one who's breaking the law.
        Lois: You hired an assassin to kill him. Is that legal?
        Nor: Excuse me, do any of you hold Kryptonian law degrees?
        Lois: No.
        Nor: Then shut up!
