  • Trivia

    • Goof: When Woody has just switched bodies with Clark and realises he's Superman, when he rips his shirt open to reveal the Superman suit in the alleyway when he's looking in the mirror, you can see a piece of double sided tape on his shirt where the buttons are!

    • When Woody Samms takes over Clarks body and after he realizes he is Superman, he goes into the phone booth and changes. When he comes out dusts off his boots, you can see his wedding ring. Superman never wears a wedding ring, but Woody doesn't realize that fact.

  • Quotes

    • Woody/Superman: I'm Superman now!
      Lois: You'll never be Superman. It's not the suit, it's not even the powers. One thing you'll never have: character! To be Superman you have to care about something. Something other than yourself.

    • SWAT Commander: One thing I'll say for the Man of Steel -- He doesn't waste any time.

    • (realizing that Woody is in Superman body)
      Asabi: Can it be? It is you! This is the body you've stolen? Are you mad? You couldn't settle for, I don't know, Michael Jordan?

    • Clark: (when Lois gets flirty as he's leaving) Um, you are making me weak!
      Lois: Wait 'til tonight. Kryptonite's got nothing on me.

  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • Lois: (seeing "Clark's" new look) It's kind of sexy, in a tasteless, tacky, Married to the Mob meets The A-Team sort of way.
      Both eighties hits, Married to the Mob starred Michelle Pfeiffer as a widow being pursued by an amorous mobster. The A-Team, notably starring Mr. T, was centered around a group of ex-Special Forces soldiers of fortune who always manage to save the day for the good guys.

    • Asabi gives Woody "The Zelig Stone" in order to allow him to switch bodies. In 1983, Woody Allen made a mockumentary named Zelig about a man who was a "human chameleon", taking the form of those around him in order to fit in with everyone. It seems more than coincidental that they used this unusual name for the stone.

    • Title: I've Got You Under My Skin.
      This is a reference to the song "I've Got You Under My Skin" by Cole Porter. It's been recorded by a number of artists, perhaps most famously by Frank Sinatra.
