Clark Kent/Kal-El of Krypton
Alexander ('Lex') Joseph Luthor
Martha Clark Kent
Desiree Atkins-Luthor/Alison Sanders
When Desiree smashes the bottle of alcohol on Lex's back and sets it on fire it burns bright orange. Alcohol burns blue almost clear. There might have been a small amount of orange from the shirt burning, but that wouldn't start for several seconds.
When Sheriff Ethan runs to get Clark out of the jail area when the fire has started, he unlocks the door, in the second or so it takes the camera to follow him, the wall the gate locks to is clearly visible... with no lock plate attached to it.
Toward the end, Clark prevents Desiree's escape by using his heat vision on the door handle. Even if she didn't know how hot it was upon sight, there's no way Desiree should have held it as long as she did. Her natural autoreflexive action should have been much faster against something bearing such high degrees of heat.
Jonathan tells Martha they don't have air conditioning because of the electric bill. However, in "Drone", Clark says Martha is addicted to the Discovery Channel. The Kents can't afford an air conditioner but they have cable TV?
Why does Clark use his heat vision to stop the bullet at the end of the episode? Wasn't that just a tad risky, seeing as how he had just acquired that ability and really had little to no experience using it? A great time to experiment - Lex could have been killed! A simple superspeed run-and-block from Clark would have sufficed. How did he get so good (amazing split-second, pinpoint precision heat vision) so fast, anyway?
When Clark heats up the popcorns with his eyes, it looks like Clark wanted the heat-beams to come out for a longer duration than the special-effect crew agreed on.
When Clark put the scarecrow in the ground, look at Jonathan's belt. Isn't that belt just a little too nice to wear while working on a farm?
Why is Clark sweating during a heat stroke of possibly 100 degrees but when his car explodes he says he didn't even feel the flames? (some thought it might be tied in to the emergence of his heat vision powers.)
Does Martha have a bakery somewhere on the farm, because there's no way she could bake a six-tiered cake in less than a day without several ovens, particularly the size that cake was). Also, Martha looked amazed when Clark announced that Lex was getting married. Wouldn't having baked the cake herself tipped her off? At the point when Clark was telling her, she should have been either putting the finishing touches on it, or at the wedding site assembling it. Also, the timing was: Lex gave Clark the invite at school, when Desiree was teaching, saying the wedding was that night. Then Clark goes home, tells parents as Desiree has Lex rip up pre-nup, and the wedding that early evening, when Clark says his mother put finishing touches on cake 2 hours ago (when Martha appeared stunned at Clark's news RE: Lex's impending wedding). (editor's note: it's possible Martha may have just decorated the cake, not baked it, but even so the whole sequence seems badly timed)
Nearly three months have passed since the tornado struck and the Kents don't seem to think twice about where the spaceship ended up after the storm. Odd, considering they were so uptight about it when it was hidden in their storm cellar.
Why does Desiree have to work on her wedding day? You'd think she could take a day off to get ready, what with marrying the richest man in town in an incredibly fancy wedding ceremony.
It's one of those things you see in a lot of shows and movies: Desiree frames Clark but has no (apparent) idea where he is at the time the crime is being committed. What if he's sitting at home watching TV in front of Ma Kent's knitting bee? Or out at the Talon with friends? As is almost always the case, conveniently Clark has no alibi.
Now Jonathan strolls into Lex's manor pool. Lex really needs to get some security guards.
Why don't the Kents alibi Clark? Okay, they probably wouldn't be believed but they don't even try. Are they really so honest that despite the fact they're sure that Clark didn't commit the crime and that he's being set up, they wouldn't lie to protect him?
So what did Lex's dad say about Lex ripping up the prenuptial agreement? Nothing?
Didn't the Kents learn last year not to have Clark use his powers in public, what with Nixon videotaping him and all? This week Clark's using his heat vision right out in an open field.
Clark: What would you say if I told you Miss Atkins a.k.a. Alison Sanders, showed up at my loft last night and... tried to seduce me.
Chloe: I'd say you were living the voyeuristic fantasy of every male student in this school. Clark, she just married Lex. Why would she possibly be interested in you?
Chloe: (to Clark in jail) Hey, sorry we didn't have time to bake a file in a cake.
Lana: So how are you holding up?
Clark: Besides being accused of being a serial arsonist and trying to sleep with my best friend's wife? I'm great.
Chloe: This is quickly going from merely nauseating to genuinely disturbing.
Chloe: Clark, she was in the throes of major passion when the meteors hit. If her pheromone levels were enhanced, she could get a guy to do whatever she wants. Lucky for us, Clark Kent seems to be immune to some members of the opposite sex.
Pete: Every year the incredibly aged Mrs. Kowalski kicks off biology class with an ancient sex ed film.
Clark: Who told you that, your brother?
Pete: No, my dad.
Chloe: That's me - Cupid's cannon fodder.
Clark: I just wanted to make sure everything's okay.
Chloe: Everything's hunky-dory.
Clark: Now I know something's wrong. Only my dad says 'hunky dory'.
Martha: You set it on fire just by looking at it?
Clark: Hello? I'm Clark, I'm the kid who can lift up tractors and see through walls.
Martha: Tell me again your aversion to air conditioning.
Jonathan: Two words: electric bill.
Desiree: (about Clark) He's the only one who kept a cool head. He put out the fire by himself.
Lex: Why I am I not surprised?
Deleted Scene: Lex and Desiree are in the wine cellar having a moment of intimacy.
Music: "A Little Less Conversation" by JXL vs Elvis, "Truth Or Dare" by N.E.R.D., "Hot In Herre" by Nelly ,"My Friends Over You" by New Found Glory, and "Tomorrow" by Avril Lavigne.
"Tomorrow" by Avril Lavigne was heard during the last scene of this episode. Presumably Lavigne is contracted to Warner - the WB music supervisors also used another Avril Lavigne song in Birds of Prey in episode 1-3 "Prey for the Hunter", called "Anything But Ordinary."
When Krista Allen enters the classroom, we hear Nelly's "Hot in Herre" song. Nelly and Sam Jones filmed the movie Snipes in 2001, prior to Sam's casting as Pete in the series. This movie - like Sam's previous one Zig Zag - is set for a 2002 video/movie release.
The animal film shown in Biology must be popular since it also appears in the movie Baby Boy starring Tyrese.
Despite being bumped up to opening credit listing this season, John Glover doesn't appear in this episode.
Krista Allen, besides playing seductress Emmanuelle in the Emmanuelle in Space series, also played a mutant who could use pheromones to entrance men in the Mutant X episode "Deadly Desire."
