  • Quotes

    • Lois: Don't worry. I won't leave until your FBI backup gets here.
      Zod: Why would you do that? You don't know me.
      Lois: That's what Clark would do.

    • Chloe: Clark's in a Kandorian family now, and I don't want to let his loyalties lead us into another Doomsday scenario.
      Oliver: Neither do I.
      Chloe: So do you really think we should tell Clark everything?
      Oliver: Absolutely. But only when the time is right.

    • Lois: That's the thing about heroes. No matter how brightly you shine the light on them, they always want to stay in the shadows.

    • Clark: How're you feeling?
      Zod: Like a changed man. When your enemy becomes your savior, your paradigm shifts.

  • Allusions

    • Lois: Listen, Agent Mulder. I will write your X-Files exposé.
      Referencing the 1993-2002 series chronicling the adventures of two FBI agents, Dana Scully and Fox Mulder, who investigate strange and inexplicable supernatural, genetic, and alien phenomena.

    • Molly: What can I do for you, Magoo?
      Referencing Mr. Magoo, a movie and TV cartoon character who was very near-sighted. He'd frequently get in near-disastrous situations but managed to get out of them without a scratch due to blind luck. He first appeared in 1949 and was voiced by Jim Backus.

    • Lois: How did you end up in my Nightmare on Psycho Street?
      Referencing the 1984 horror movie featuring Freddie Krueger, a child killer who is killed by angry parents and gains the ability to manifest in dreams. When he kills his victims in their dreams, they die in real life. The movie spawned a successful movie and TV franchise, and a theatrical remake was released some two months after this episode premiered.

    • Lois: I got Randall to let me pen my Silence of the Lambs remake.
      Referencing Thomas Harris' 1988 novel which chronicles serial killer "Buffalo Bill" and the hunt for him conducted by FBI agent Clarice Starling. Most famously, it served to introduce cannibal and serial killer Hannibal Lecter. The novel was subsequently made into a movie in 1991, and has spawned several sequels and prequels.
