Clark Kent/Kal-El of Krypton
Teri Hatcher plays Lois' mother in the video. However, in season 4's "Gone" when Clark and Lois are in her father's office, Clark looks at a picture of Lois' mother and it is a noticeably different actress portraying her who also has blonde hair.
Julian Sands' voice (and body) is used here as the voice of Jor-El when he records the hologram message during Krypton's last moments. However, in "Memoria," the voice of Jor-El that is heard during Krypton's last moments is Terence Stamp's, which is clearly different.
Trivia: Tess' birth certificate identifies her birthday as November 12. Since she then wishes herself Happy Birthday, this places the final day of the episode as taking place on the day the episode premiered.
Clark: Does St. Louise's mean anything to you?
Tess: This might come as a surprise to you, Clark, but I've never really identified with any saints.
Ella Lane: Play the tapes. Think of me. Because losing a parent, it can create a hole in a person's heart. Someday you're going to meet someone special. Knowing you, I'm guessing tall, dark, and handsome. And you can't commit to that person fully if you think there's a love that you're missing from some old memory. Like me. You can't let someone leaving you stop your future with someone else. The thing about being a parent is... it doesn't end. Not with age, not with death. I will always be your mother, Lois. And I will always love you.
Clark: I'm here to help you.
Harriet: No one here needs saving... except you.
Granny Goodness: I lost your broken soul once. Trust me, I'm not going to let you go again. I have plans for you, Tess. You will be my most valuable soldier in the coming war. Whether you want to be... or not.
Granny Goodness: Don't fret, my child. I'm here to ease your pain.
Clark: I have no pain.
Granny Goodness: Oh, but you do. You are an abandoned soul. It's not your fault your parents didn't want you. Let me help push all that anger away.
Granny Goodness: It's tempting though, isn't it?
Clark: No. Challenges are what makes us who we are. The people that I've lost, the things that I've learned. I wouldn't be the same without them.
Granny Goodness: We've all had moments that we regret, and people who let us down. I can take that all away. You just ask any of my girls. I'm the most compassionate one of all.
Lara: My son, I've only had the joy of knowing you a few weeks. I wish I could be with you always to guide you and protect you.
Jor-El: We don't have much time.
Lara: My dearest Kal-El, our love will always be with you. I can already see you carry within you your father's independent spirit.
Jor-El: But more importantly, your mother's never-ending bravery. And her compassion of heart.
Lara: Your father tells me the new world you're journeying to, Earth, is full of complicated beings capable of great emotion. My wish is for you to live a full and wonderful life, but I need you to know you were born of a great love. And your brilliant father has devised a way for you to carry on without us.
Jor-El: The ship I designed to carry you to your destiny can only hold one Kryptonian. One who has so much potential. So unlike your father. Your mother and I cannot come with you. To do so would be to burden your innocent soul with our frailties and failures. But you have within you the best of both of us. And I'm sending with you all of my knowledge, and none of my ego or regrets. They will die with me here on Krypton. Whatever trials I put you through, I will never lose faith in you.
Lara: Quickly, before it's too late. We may not be able to save our planet.
Jor-El: We are confident you will become Earth's greatest savior. And never doubt that just as you are a part of us, we will always be a part of you. Farewell, my son.
Godfrey: So I do have a higher purpose.
Desaad: Yes, Godfrey. Your golden voice is broadcast around the world.
Granny Goodness: Not impressed. And you, I see you're enjoying your clubs. They seem more popular than ever.
Desaad: Our unholy trinity is complete. I bind their bodies, Godfrey breaks their spirit, and you, my beloved friend, you clear their minds, preparing the way for Lord Darkseid.
Lois: Clark Kent and karaoke. Isn't that one of the signs of the Apocalypse?

Granny Goodness first appeared in Mister Miracle vol. 1 #2 (May 1971), and was created by Jack Kirby. The hag-like mistress of Darkseid's "orphanage," Granny Goodness ruthless torments her proteges and turns them into ruthless warriors.
