Martha Clark Kent
Lois Lane (Season 5+)
Alexander ('Lex') Joseph Luthor
Clark Kent/Kal-El of Krypton
Why doesn't Graham stay invisible when he's trying to kill Lex? In a large mansion like Lex's, there are bound to be security guards and staff walking around who might happen upon them.
When Lois gets out of the shower to confront the person she thinks is outside the door, she doesn't wrap a towel around her and apparently plans to confront the intruder naked.
Why does Graham tell Clark he has to get rid of only him, Lex and Lana? Didn't Graham see Clark telling Chloe all about Graham? Shouldn't he want to get rid of her too?
At the start of the episode the windmill is blowing, yet there is no evidence of any wind.
When Lana tells the guards to call for help, why do they run out of the room? Doesn't Lex keep a phone in his office? Both the guards probably have their own cell phones, as do Lex and Lana. So with five likely phones in the room, why don't they use one?
Although the viewer realizes that Graham is invisible at will, there are at least two scenes, one just after his initial 'hit' and one in the Daily Planet, having heard Chloe and Clark talking, where Graham suddenly reappears. A busy corridor where people have gathered to see the dead body and a busy newspaper office with people milling around everywhere. No one seems to notice him appear.
When Lana goes to visit Lex at the hospital, Graham enters the room behind her and Lex rushes Lana to the corner and starts shooting into the corners of the room, after he hits him, they run out into the hallway and Graham shoots one last time. During this, there are absolutely no staff members to be seen, responding to the emergency or ducking for cover.
When Graham tries to kill Lex by strangling him, he's gasping and struggling to cry for help. Neither would be possible since both actions would require him to breathe.
Why is Lois exercising, in a skimpy exercise outfit, at the Kent farm? She moved out several episodes previously, there's no indication Martha uses her house as her office, and one can imagine that newspapers could make quite a scandal out of Lois being there with Clark.
Chloe's story at the end says the killer's name is "Christopher Boyer." That totally contradicts earlier when Choe identified him as Graham Garrett.
Lois claims she was in the shower for an hour and a half, but her skin isn't prune-wrinkled, her makeup is perfect, and there's no steam in the room.
Why doesn't Clark use his x-ray vision to see Graham when he turns invisible, just like he did in the season 1 episode "Shimmer".
Lois: Why can't I just meet a decent guy from a decent family who happens not to be a psychopath?
Martha: Oh, Lois. (sighs) You know, when I was your age, I wasn't dating Prince Charmings either.
Martha: Yeah. I used to attract the dark, mysterious type, too, until I met Jonathan.
Lois: See, what worries me is that when my Jonathan finally does come around, I'll be looking the other way and I'll miss him completely.
(Lois plays a video game on Clark's new plasma TV)
Lois: Jimbo, you are mine.
(the game ends)
Lois: Ah, come on, Smallville, ya killed me!
Martha: Maybe, you have to get through all the wrong men, so you can recognize the right one.
Clark: Lana, I know you don't want to hear this, especially from me...you can't trust Lex.
Lana: Oh, I can trust you?
Clark: I just don't want to see you get hurt.
Lana: I know you think you're being some kind of hero, Clark. But the truth is, I don't need you to protect me.
Martha: So, how are you? Clark told me what happened.
Lois: Me? I'm fine. Getting swept off my feet by a notorious hitman is my way of living la vida loca.
Graham: Go easy on me – I'm a friend of Clark's. Are you his girlfriend?
Lois: Not in this lifetime.
Clark: But really, I'm okay.
Graham: You're hanging out in a barn, alone, in the middle of nowhere. That doesn't seem too okay to me.
Lana: Actually, I wasn't your only visitor. Clark stopped by earlier.
Lex: It's too bad it takes a near-death experience to bring old friends together.
Lana: I don't owe Clark anything, Lex – especially the truth.
Lois: Official warning -- I'm a third degree black belt. That means I can't be held liable for any funeral costs.
Clark: I guess this a bad time to ask for a favor?
Chloe: Are you kidding me? The amount of times you saved my butt you can pull a coin from the favor bank anytime you need. What's up?
Clark: Somebody sent me a 50-inch plasma with all the bells and whistles -- forgot to sign the gift card.
Chloe: Clark, that's not a problem. That's winning the Trifecta. When's movie night?
Lex: You know, I was only gone for a week, but I actually got a little homesick.
Lana: What's so special about Smallville?
Lex: Oh, I don't know..the cows, the cornfields..wide open spaces...
Lana: I missed you too.
Lex: You have no idea.
Chloe: (to Clark) You know, Lana's moved on. Maybe it's time you started doing the same thing.
Graham: You think using your powers to be a hero is a rush? Nothing beats using them to kill.
Deleted Scene: Lois is preparing for her date with Graham with help from Martha. Lois suggests that mentions that Clark should move on from Lana with Martha mentioning how Clark's always moved at his own pace. Lois then mentions that if she had a mom, that she would do better at dressing up for dates. Martha responds that if she had a daughter, she would want her to be someone like Lois.
Although credited, John Glover and John Schneider don't appear.
Clark: Not that I mind being your Boy Friday
This is a reference to the film His Girl Friday, about sparring newspaper reporters (which was itself a remake/reworking of the film The Front Page). Of course Man Friday (actually just Friday, but known everywhere as Man Friday) was also Robinson Crusoe's companion in the book of the same name, from where the His Girl Friday title came in the first place.
Lois: Getting swept off my feet by a notorious hitman is my way of living la vida loca.
Livin' la Vida Loca is a hit song by Puerto Rican singer Ricky Martin. The English translation for this is "Living the crazy life."
Lois: I'll be wearing my glass slippers.
Referring to the story of Cinderella, where a poor young women goes to a ball and meets a charming prince who falls in love with her. She then loses one of her glass slippers while running away and the prince finds her using it.
Lois: Can I ask why you're playing Daddy Warbucks with the guy?
Daddy Warbucks is the father of Little Orphan Annie. His name has become synonymous with wealth and power.
Chloe: Riddle me this: how does an assassin get in a completely sealed room without being seen?
The phrase "Riddle me this" was a catchphrase used antagonistically by the Riddler, a Batman foe, to taunt the Batman before presenting him a riddle to solve.
