Clark Kent/Kal-El of Krypton
Man on Street
Clark goes to the Isis Foundation to supposedly use facial-recognition software on Maxima's photo from the Ace of Clubs security footage. However, this makes no sense since he already knows she's an alien queen from Almerac. Plus he knows she's looking for him: there's no reason for him to have the computer systems look on any other security footage or databases. To find her all he needs to do is go out somewhere public and let her find him.
It's not clear why Chloe is choosing Clark to give her away, given that she has a father, Gabe Sullivan. He hasn't been seen in four years, but there's never been any indication that he's dead or that his relationship with Chloe has soured.
Maxima sees Clark at the club, and recognizes that he's a Kryptonian when he uses his powers. However, she doesn't confront him at the hospital. And she doesn't confront him as he leaves the hospital. Despite the fact she's eager to find and face him earlier in the episode, she waits until he returns to the Daily Planet to finally confront him.
In the shot with the crescent moon over Lex's manor, the moon is facing the wrong direction. The lit part should face the Sun, which is already below the horizon. However, it doesn't.
Maxima: You're my soul mate.
Clark: You don't even know who I am.
Maxima: When I was a little girl, I heard the stories of the brave and gallant men of Krypton. Men worthy of standing by a queen's side. When I learned your planet had been destroyed, I prayed for survivors. And then I saw your beacon.
Clark: The beacon didn't come from me.
Maxima: It doesn't matter. I found the last son of Krypton, and you're everything I wished for.
Lois: I am so jealous of you in that Kent farmhouse all by yourself. So many empty rooms, huh?
Clark: It is pretty quiet.
Lois: You are about as predictable as mullets in NASCAR. One little mention of you living alone, and you start singing the "missing Lana" blues. You know, I hate to be the one to dish out a helping of tough love here, Clark, but Lana is gone for good. Time to get back in the saddle, buckaroo. But this go-round, you need to look outside your wheelhouse.
Clark: I didn't know I had a wheelhouse.
Lois: Of course you do--pretty, friendly, damsel-in-distress-y. You need to try another scoop of the 31 flavors, maybe a little less sweet vanilla and a lot more wild cherry.
Tess: You know, Lex Luthor may have been wowed by your high-tech smoke and mirrors, Dr. Grohl, but I've come to expect more hardcore evidence from boys and their toys.
Tess: Do you kickbox, Chloe? I find it helps me focus my anger.
Chloe: Maybe I should rush over to the dojo because I have a lot of it building up right now.
(talking about Clark)
Lois: Look, he's about as attracted to me as a Red Sox fan to the Yankees.
Clark: Lois! Lois, wait!
Lois: What!? Oh, sorry to rain on your orgy, Smallville. I think I scared off your date.
Clark: Where'd she go?
Lois: Probably to find you two a motel room.
Clark: You don't understand.
Lois: What's not to understand?! You were pulling a 9 1/2 Weeks in the elevator! I mean it may not get you a membership in the mile-high club, but, hey you got to start somewhere!
Lois: You know endorphins? They're hormones that are released when the body performs a certain activity.
Clark: Like when you play a sport.
Lois: Or there's another kind of activity two people share, repetitive motion, builds to a climax.
Clark: Thank you.

In the comics, Maxima first appeared in Action Comics #645. Created by Roger Stern and George Pérez, Maxima is a princess of the royal family of Almerac. She came to Earth to look for a suitable mate and fixated initially on Superman. She battled Doomsday during his first rampage and later died stopping Brainiac from destroying the universe. A somewhat different interpretation of the character appeared in Superman: The Animated Series in the episode "Warrior Queen," where she was voiced by Sharon Lawrence. She is typically represented as having psionic abilities which she can use to enhance her strength and resistance to levels rivaling Superman.
Chloe: Now that Lois is riding shotgun in your Mystery Machine, your old sidekick is jonesing for a Scooby clue.
This is a reference to the 1969 Saturday morning cartoon Scooby Doo, Where Are You? which aired on CBS. The show dealt with a group of four high school students, Fred, Daphne, Velma, Shaggy and their dog Scooby Doo, a loveable but cowardly Great Dane, who formed Mystery, Inc. The group was interested in the mysterious and supernatural and traveled around the area in a bright green van called the Mystery Machine. Over the decades the cartoon has had additional episodes and even hour long movies produced; finally culminating in the film Scooby Doo (2002) and a sequel Scooby Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed (2004) which starred Freddy Prinze Jr. and Sarah Michelle Gellar.
Lois: What's not to understand?! You were pulling a Nine 1/2 Weeks in the elevator! I mean it may not get you a membership in the mile-high club, but, hey you got to start somewhere!
Referencing the 1986 movie starring Mickey Rourke and Kim Basinger, with Basinger's character drawn into an increasingly disturbed sexual relationship with Rourke's character John.
