  • A former killer turned TV Reporter tries to reveal Superman's identity while also trying to kill him.

    Wow! Is it possible for someone as old as Raquel Welch to be so hot? I'm serious, she's what, 68? So this episode aired like 13 years ago, which would've made her 55 when they filmed this episode. I've never seen a 55 year old women look so hot! Especially in the scene where Superman comes to her apartment and she's wearing a tight black dress and trying to seduce him, that's my favorite scene. It's too bad that when she kisses him he starts feeling sick because of the kryptonite lipstick. She was very hot in this episode. She looked great.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (5)

    • Goof: When Lois breaks the glass to get into Clark's apartment, there is a reflection of the boom-mic next to the knob.

    • Goof: Kryptonite is radioactive, so why would radioactive uranium counteract it? Radiation poisoning is treated by using an agent to flush the radiactive residue from the body, and treatment of the symptoms with antibiotics.

    • Diana Stride is another person who knows Superman's real identity. She saw him on the couch in his apartment, opening his shirt, exposing the suit, as well as the suits hanging in his closet. She lived to tell the world, but since she was sent to prison, no one would believe her. The Planet printed an article saying that her show was a hoax because everyone saw Superman and Clark, together thanks to Martha's Hologram.

    • Goof: When Clark has everybody downstairs for the press conference he is behind the microphones when Superman appears. Right before Superman flies away, you see the wires holding up Dean Cain as he flies.

    • Nitpick: When Diana Stride sprays her left hand to tag Superman so that later she can identify his true identity, when she jumps he saves her she caresses his neck with her right hand. Of course, it's possible she had previously sprayed her other hand, just to be sure.

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Lois: (confessing about stealing Mayson's beeper) I did something that I shouldn't have. (hands over the beeper)
      Mayson: You stole it.
      Lois: Yeah. It's not the first time I've bent the law for a story, but I did feel bad because after I finished rationalizing it I realized that a big part of why I did it is because... I don't like you.
      Mayson: (pleased) Really? Oh God, that is such a relief! I don't like you either!

    • Rolf: There is something I have always wanted to ask you: when I wear my very tightest ski pants I always get a bit... chafed. Do you find this happens to you?
      Superman: No, but it helps to be invulnerable.

    • Clark: Lois, you know, I really hope someday that you learn, that sometimes what it seems like people are doing isn't what they're really doing.
      Lois: What are you, a fortune cookie?

    • Rolf (about Superman): So good, so decent. Don't you just want to vomit?
      Diana: Nice quads, though.
      Rolf: Eh.
