Season 7 Episode 10


Aired Friday 8:00 PM Jan 31, 2008 on The CW



  • Trivia

    • Trivia: Lex received a text message about Gabriel's death from the cellular phone number (913) 555-0195.

    • If Brainiac needs trace metals, it would be much simpler just to find metal junk (or even cars on the street) and take the trace metals out of them. Instead he kills people for no reason.

    • If Jor-El has enough power to imprison Clark, why is he helpless against Bizarro?

  • Quotes

    • Chloe: (to Clark) You never forget anything. Your mind is like a titanium trap.

    • Bizarro: The yellow sun -- it turns my skin into stone. It's only a matter of time before somebody figures out that I'm not Kent. I know how smart you are, but I know you can help.
      Brainiac: Hmm, try a good sunscreen -- wide-brimmed hat, perhaps.

    • Clark: I'm Kal-El.
      Dax-Ur: The House of El. You always were survivors.

    • Bizarro: Are you, uh, telling me the truth?
      Brainiac: Lying to you would be like lying to a mollusk. There's no point.

    • Chloe: Another Kryptonian? Jeez, Clark, I'm starting to think that Earth was your home planet's top tourist destination.

    • Lex: You've always shunned newspapers, Dad. You used to tell me they're nothing but lies delivered daily.

    • Lex: You're telling me you wouldn't want to see Julian again? To look into the eyes of the son you've lost?
      Lionel: It's you I've lost. It's you I've lost.

    • Lionel: Yeah, well after a good dinner, one can forgive anybody, even one's own relations.
      Grant: Huh?
      Lionel: That's not me. That's Oscar Wilde.
      Grant: Oh. I bet Oscar Wilde's brother didn't cook him up in a lab.

    • Brainiac: You're not Kal-El.
      Bizarro: I'm the new-and-improved version.

    • Lana: You have a lot of powers, Clark, but last I heard, flying wasn't one of them.
      Bizarro: (as Clark) You make me feel like I can fly.

  • Notes

    • Deleted Scene: Shows that Jor-El froze Clark because he thought he would do better in a world where his friends and family would be gone.
