Lois: Do you even care if I get this job?
Clark: Of course I care. I bought a new tie.
Lois: Oh, well I bought a whole new outfit.
Clark: Yeah, you look great.
Lois: Don't do that.
Clark: Do what?
Lois: Don't you dare reassure me right now.
Chloe: (to Clark) Wow. Tackling morning television to get into Lois' good graces. You know, this has got to be one of your bravest moves yet.
Lois: If you want these mainframe matchmakers to pick you a winner, you really have to be careful to choose exactly the right words.
Clark: I filled mine out in 10 minutes this morning.
Lois: I guarantee that's the only 10 you're going to get out of it.
Clark: Well, let's see what you wrote. All right. Under "likes," you have the theater. You mean movie theater.
Clark: Favorite drinks--you have "bubbly." Yeah, if it comes in a six-pack.
Lois: (steals a look at Clark's chest) Well, I do like a six-pack.
Clark: Look, there are a lot of good things about you that would attract a lot of great guys.
Lois: Really? Like what?
Clark: Uh... well, you're Lois.
Lois: Thanks, Clark. But I already filled out my name.
Tess: Fix the situation, Stuart. Or I'll have you terminated.
Stuart: Okay, By terminated, though, you mean fired, right? Right?
Lois: Okay, Clark. Let's talk about something else--like your online-dating profile.
Clark: But that was supposed to be private.
Lois: Well, I'll give you this. You definitely were honest. But admitting that you grew up on a farm is either going to get you a date with a country mouse, or a cougar looking for her next meal.
Lois: Ollie, I need your help.
Oliver: It's not a good time, Lois.
Lois: You know how Clark and I have this side job hosting Good Morning Metropolis?
Oliver: Uh, Clark Kent's hosting morning television? I can't wait to watch him show me how to bake a cake.
Oliver: Clark's on a blind date? Talk about footage of a train wreck.

Catherine "Cat" Grant
Catherine Grant first appeared in Adventures of Superman #424. A well-known gossip columnist, she moved to Metropolis and took a job at the Daily Planet. She decided to prove she was a real reporter and went undercover to infiltrate Intergang. She later became a TV station manager A single mother, her son was killed by the Toyman. She later became press secretary for Lex Luthor when he became President of the U.S. Since then she has returned to the Daily Planet and has an enmity with Supergirl.
In the comics, Mia Dearden is a teenager runaway who became a child prostitute. Green Arrow rescued her and she secretly trained to become the hero's sidekick, carrying on the name "Speedy" that Green Arrow's previous partner Roy Harper had used. Green Arrow finally accepted her and she went on to join the Teen Titans. She later discovered she was HIV positive.
The advertising cut-out for Good Morning Metropolis references the 1990 film Pretty Woman, starring Richard Gere and Julia Roberts. The plot of that film, where a wealthy business man meets a prostitute and tries to improve her life, is similar to Oliver and Mia's story in this episode, as well.
