Season 10 Episode 12


Aired Friday 8:00 PM Feb 04, 2011 on The CW



  • Trivia

    • At the 21:21 mark, Chloe says "one down, five to go." There are six tubes and she has freed Oliver. Lois, Clark, Black Canary, and Aquaman are all prisoners. It's not clear who the fifth prisoner is. However, Stargirl, the Flash, Cyborg, and Zatanna were also at the funeral, knocked out, and taken captive. Chloe should have said, "one down, eight to go," since there is no mention that anyone was taken elsewhere.

  • Quotes

    • Lois: Chloe, we were just on our way.
      Possessed Chloe: Where?
      Clark: To meet you on the roof. I'm ready to jump this time.
      Possessed Chloe: What're you talking about?
      Clark: The portal to the real world.
      Lois: The one you tried to get him to jump through.
      Possessed Chloe: Okay, you both are obviously suffering from post-traumatic stress, and this delusion is a part of that. What you're talking about is literally suicide. Clark, are you actually going to let Lois jump to her death?
      Lois: Wait, you're not Chloe. Someone's hijacked you. and if none of this is real... (slaps Chloe through a wall)

    • Chloe: Hello, Oliver.
      Oliver: I'm not sure what these drugs are called, but they are working.
      Chloe: You're not hallucinating, Oliver, and you're not insane. Trust me.
      Oliver: Really? Well, that's kind of hard to believe, considering you just materialized out of a wall.

    • VRA Operator: Ma'am, don't get huffy.
      Lois: No, I am not getting huffy. I am a general's daughter, I don't even know how to get huffy, okay? I do happy, I do sad, and I do "stop giving me the runaround, bitch, or I will come for you."

    • Clark: Lois, you're trying to tell me that all of this, all of this is fake. And that makes more sense to you than us going through some post-traumatic stress because of what they put us through?
      Lois: Yes, and normally you'd think so, too.
      Clark: Because Chloe said so.
      Lois: Clark, you and Chloe have--have battled Luthors, you fought with demons from outer space, and you battled supernatural hexes together. In the world of Clark and Chloe, this is another day at the office.

    • Lois: Everything in this world that you see and hear is telling you that you shouldn't trust her. But I can tell that your heart is saying the opposite, and if I know one thing, it's that Clark Kent's heart is usually right.

    • Clark: How'd you do it? Trust me. I mean, back then before you found out.
      Chloe: I had my suspicions.
      Clark: That's what I mean. You knew that I was lying to you, and still you looked me in the eye every day and you trusted me.
      Chloe: I guess that's the true test of believing in someone. Knowing that their lies are there to protect you. It's not really trust if you ask someone to explain themselves.
      Clark: But that's hard.
      Chloe: It's really hard.
      Clark: You never gave up.
      Chloe: And I never will.

    • Clark: Well, who knows? Maybe one day we'll get to fly in the real world.
      Lois: I've always believed that you can do the impossible. And one day you will.
