Clark Kent/Kal-El of Krypton
Alexander ('Lex') Joseph Luthor
Lucy called Lois at 3AM Kansas time, and arrived just when breakfast was being served on the farm (no later than 9 or 10). A flight from Zurich to Kansas would take longer than 6 hours, not to mention the traveling time from the slopes to the airport, from the airport to the Kent farm.
Trivia: Lois using a ringtone on her phone which is the melody of the Army Wake Up call.
So when did Lana have a chance to ransack her own apartment? Jason lives with her, so it could be a good assumption that when they went out for their morning run, they left the apartment together. And gauging by Jason and Lana's conversation, when they were walking up the stairs after the workout, they aparently decided to race during their run and that it was close. So Lana couldn't have broken away then. Did she hire someone to do it? If so, it's never really established who she would trust enough with that kind of secret.
Another odd thing about the mountains is that when Clark arrives, his back is to them. Then the semi approaches him from the front and goes under him. As he turns around, he should be facing the mountains but they're nowhere to be seen. They also disappear in all other subsequent shots facing in the direction the truck is heading.
When Lucy is picking the drawer in the Talon and Clark arrives, she is behind the counter. At the end of scene she stands up from the chair in front of the counter.
In a couple of the shots when Clark is on the overpass, you can see the mountains of "Kansas" in the background. These of course are the mountains north of Vancouver B.C. where the show is filmed.
Highway 54 does go through Kansas, but the two closest Cherry Hills are in Arkansas. Neither of them is near Highway 54.
The pipe Lana puts the stone in is a cleanout drain. There's no ledge or anything inside such things (which would kinda defeat their purpose). If you put something in it, it's going to fall and keep falling until it hits bottom.
When Clark meets with Lex after the kidnapping (several hours later at least - it's now daylight), Lex's wound is fairly small and has no bandages. When Lex arrives at the semi later, the wound is substantially larger and now has bandages.
As the truck is violently thrown back and forth on the road, the vehicle inside the trailer remains perfectly still and doesn't appear to be secured at all.
When Lex and Lucy are playing their duet, Peyton List's left hand on the strings doesn't move and the bow is wildly out-of-synch with the dubbed-in music.
In the beginning, we see Lucy skiing down a mountain to get away from her pursuer, Marcus Becker. She escapes and calls Lois, and then travels to Smallville. Given what happens later in the episode, this scene has no place in the episode and is contradicted by what we learn near the end. (Spoilers: From the "no-tomato" scene it's established that Lucy and Becker have had an extended relationship.)
Lois: Uh, you know, all these years, I thought I had my sister pegged. But, uh, in reality she's a complete stranger to me.
Clark: Even if that were true, I think that if she called you tomorrow, you'd be there in a second to help her.
Lois: I just got off the phone with the general.
Clark: Oh, that was all the screaming I heard from the house.
Lois: Yeah. Well, apparently, he is very disappointed in me for letting this happen, and as far as my family chain of command goes, I am the weakest link.
Clark: I thought you said that telescopes were for geeks and stalkers.
Lois: Yeah, well, as was proven over the last few days, I can seriously misjudge people.
Lex: Jason Teague found the stone?
Lionel: Either you are the best con man in the world, or you are truly unbelievably naive.
Lex: Dad, if you want to play games, there's a deck of cards in the parlor.
Lionel: Well, he--Jason Teague, that's who it was--accused me of taking something that didn't belong to me, of stealing.
Lex: Well, it wouldn't be the first time.
Chloe: (to Clark) You know, it never fails. Keeping secrets always leads to trouble. I don't know which is more difficult, being the one keeping the secret or the one who's being duped.
Lucy: Well, you can think whatever you want. But the fact is, I always envied you.
Lois: Me? I was being dragged around the world like a spare piece of luggage.
Lucy: Yeah, but you had something I never had.
Lucy: Our dad.
Lois: Luce, I don't think either of us ever had Dad.
Lois: When Michael Hoover was throwing dirt clods at you, who kicked his butt, huh? Who was the one who let you sleep in her bed and listen to you snore every night after Mom died?
Lucy: Lois, I'm sorry.
Lois: Well, sorry's not good enough! I want to know why. I want to know why you turned to a life of crime when you have everything in the world going for you. You're as close to fricking perfect as it gets!
Clark: You went to a loan shark?
Lucy: Well, it's called something else in German, but yeah, that's the idea.
Clark: (after catching Lucy stealing from the Talon's register) I knew you had talents, but I didn't think burglary was one of them.
Lucy: I swear I was gonna pay it all back. I'm not some criminal.
Clark: You do a pretty good job of impersonating one.
Jason: It was all one big calculated ploy, wasn't it?
Lionel: If I had the foresight which you attribute to me, I wouldn't need any ancient artifacts to help me.
Jason: If you've got any kind of foresight, you will let me know where that stone is right now. Otherwise, this is gonna get very ugly.
Chloe: Whoa! Is that Lois with a tray? (to Lois) Hey, cuz!
Clark: Yes, it is. It's kind of like a free floor show.
Lex: Two Lanes under one roof. That's got to be interesting.
Clark: Well, I haven't had a hot shower in two days, and the laundry machine is running nonstop. The phone line is consistently busy. No, it's nice having them around. I mean, it kind of takes the loneliness out of the house.
Lex: Yeah, I always hated the sound of a quiet home.
Lois: Don't let all that flirting go to your head. She goes to an all-girls school. You're probably the first guy she's talked to in a couple months.
Clark: Lois, I don't want you to get the wrong idea, but ever since Lucy came to town you've been grumpier than normal. Are you not happy to see your sister?
Lois: Of course I am. Look, there's a thing with sisters. You can love them without really liking them.
Clark: You don't like your own sister?
Lois: More like she's not very crazy about me, not that I blame her.
Lois: So Chloe is going to be your official Smallville tour guide, not that there's much to see.
Lucy: Oh, I don't know. (she looks Clark up and down) So far it looks pretty good.
Jason: You know, you cheated on that last stretch, young lady. I had you beat.
Lana: Well, I only offered you a kiss. Didn't think you''d actually fall for it.
Lois: You know, there's something cathartic about telling a three-star general to go to hell.
Lois: A hundred grand, chrome wheels and thirteen speakers and instead of a back seat, oh yeah, I get the gear shift.
Clark: I guess no matter how bad you want to, you just can't save everyone.
Chloe: But it doesn't stop you from trying. Does it, Clark?
Clark: You might be a little rough around the edges, but as far as sisters go, Lucy, could do a lot worse.
Lois: Thanks for the ringing endorsement!
Lois: You're amazing, Smallville. You always look for the best in people even when they walk all over you.
Clark: I guess that explains why we're friends.
Lois: Oh, we're friends now?
Clark: Well, I won't tell anyone if you don't.
Lex: Dad, clearly the idea of personal space is lost on you.
Lex: Just because you have the same blood running through your veins doesn't make you family.
Lucy: Are we there yet?
Lois: Have you ever been in a car and not uttered those words?
Lois: You're going to find that Clark's charm is an acquired taste, much like his sense of fashion.
Lois: It's called 'being nice'.
Clark: Well, if you were any nicer, we'd starve.
The ski sequence was filmed at Sunshine Ski Resort. It is located near Banff, Alberta.
In the comics, Lucy Lane was first introduced in Superman's Pal Jimmy Olsen #36 in April 1959. During the Silver Age, Lucy was as an airline stewardess romantic interest of Jimmy Olsen.
During the modern age, Lucy was reintroduced in issue #5 of John Byrne's 1986 miniseries Man of Steel. She met and married Ron Troupe, the African American columnist who replaced Clark's position during the Death of Superman saga.
Lucy Lane has made several live action appearances in the various Superman incarnations. She was portrayed by Maureen Teefy in the 1984 movie Supergirl as Supergirl's schoolmate. Also, she was portrayed by Elizabeth Barondes and Roxanna Zal in her three appearances on the television show Lois and Clark.
The opening ski sequence was filmed at Whistler or somewhere in British Columbia - according to one contributor it was very dry winter in the Pacific Northwest in 2005 when the episode was filmed and not much snow.
In-joke: the club Peter Wingfield's bouncer works at is "Kronos" - in the series Highlander, Peter Wingfield's character Methos was ally-enemy-friend with another Immortal named Kronos.
Music: "Club Foot" (Kasabian) by Kasabian and "Fly" (Scream) by Mark Joseph.
Lionel: You've made Hot Potato into an art form.
Hot Potato is a children's game where they throw an object (usually a ball) to each other and sing a song...and whoever has the "hot potato" (the ball) when the song is over that person loses.
Chloe: Before you go all "Lifetime heroine"...
