Goof: Lex quotes, "'She's beautiful, therefore to be wooed, she's beautiful, therefore to be won.' That's Henry the Fifth."However, that's from another play by Shakespeare, Titus Andronicus.
Nitpick: In the opening scene, (Super) Lex is flying through Metropolis. The cityscape they used is Chicago's instead of NYC's.
Nitpick: When Lois calls the clothing catalog company, she gives her home phone number with a 217 area code. This is currently the area code for Springfield, Illinois.
This episode marks the first of five dual roles of either Lois or Clark, with Dean Cain playing both Superman and the Superman clone.
Goof: When Clark goes to France, the signs in French hanging on the walls in the airport are filed with mistakes.
Goof: When Clark came back from Paris, Lois ate one of the croissants, but it seems to visibly change size.
Goof: When Linda King asks Superman about saving a woman from a burning hotel, he says the visibility was bad, and that the woman had three children. But he was shown catching her on the ground, not up high, so visibility (which seemed fine in the shots shown) could not have been an issue. And how did he find out about those three children since all he does is catch her and walk away to be interviewed?!
The lost works of art and cultural treasures in Lex's private gallery include the missing arms of the Venus de Milo, Gainesborough's "Yellow Boy", Beethoven's 10th Symphany, the self portrait of Vincent Van Gogh, and the full figure Mona Lisa of Leonardo da Vinci, among others not identified.
Strange that when Jack touched the globe, Clark didn't share the visions, but when Lex did, he saw everything. Perhaps the message hadn't progressed far enough to transmit to Clark at a distance- none of the prologue, but all of the main message seemed to make it through to him.
When Lois tells Clark that he's like iron, he mutters "steel," a reference to Superman's nickname "the man of steel". Lois then asks him to repeat what he said and Clark explains that he is *still* worried. In Israel, the Hebrew subtitles contain a similar play on words: the Hebrew word for steel "p'ladah," becomes "da'agah" (worry) -- Clark is worried about what happened to his things. Similarly, in the Spanish dubs, the word for steel, "acero", becomes "ah... cero" (um... zero) as Clark changes his muttering to a comment on yesterday's stock exchange.
Trivia: Lex's mentions that his penthouse is on the 110th floor of his office building, about 1,500 feet above a busy street.
The painting of Martha in the nude, by the young artist, is never explained. In an earlier draft of the episode Clark asks Martha about the painting and she said that she was going to give it to Jonathan as an anniversary gift but now would probably give him a set of socket wrenches instead. This scene was edited from the final cut.
Goof: In the episode when Lois and Clark are talking to the supposed killer, he is on the computer and doesn't have his glasses on, then they cut to Lois and Clark, then back to him and he has them back on again.
Goof: When they are discussing stories at the Planet Cat peels a banana, in the next shot the banana is closed again.
When Lois gets up the morning after she is shot at, the audience can clearly see that she sleeps with the teddy bear Clark won her at the Smallville Corn Festival.
Goof: When Superman commands the miners to halt their operation in the Brazilian rain forest, he uses the Spanish word for stop, "alto". The official and most commonly spoken language in Brazil is Portuguese, not Spanish, so he should have said "parar".
Goof: After Winninger was killed and Lois is writing the story the first time you see her computer screen there is only one paragraph written. When Clark makes a comment about her story there are two paragraphs. Cut to Perry making a comment only one paragraph is written and finally cut back to screen and there are two paragraphs again.
Goof: The reflection of the boom-mic is visible in Zeitlin's glasses, when Superman said he would rather avoid the use of a nuclear rocket to destroy the asteroid.
Clark says that he didn't learn to fly until he was 18.
It seems the red briefs over Superman's uniform aren't attached. When Mrs Kent pulls one of his outfits out of Clark's closet, the blue suit has no red briefs on it.
