  • Trivia

    • In a flashback, when Lana is making the DVD for Clark and talking to the camera, she says, "As long as I'm in your life, I'm holding you back. Please for both of us, don't come looking for me." But in the season seven finale of "Arctic," she says, "Please, don't come after me."

    • When Tess enters her office at the Daily Planet and her assistant doesn't respond, she turns the chair around and sees that he is shot dead. Just before she spins it, the dead man blinks and moves his mouth slightly.

  • Quotes

    • Chloe: Clark, you know you're bored when you resort to watching a repeat of your breakup.

    • Chloe: (to Clark) You know, you have an arsenal of abilities at your disposal, but suffocating feelings that want to come up for air definitely isn't one of them.

    • Lana: Yeah, well, life hasn't exactly been a walk in the park lately.
      Carter: Oh, poor, poor, pitiful you. How long have you been feeling sorry for yourself? Let me guess: your entire life.

    • Tess: You're a pretty pathetic guard dog. Loyal to a master that can't even feed himself. Why don't you come and work for me? Hmm? I'll give you more Milk-Bones than Lex ever did.
      Regan: I think I'd rather shovel cow dung.

    • Tess: That's a ballsy move, sitting in the boss's chair. Either you have good news for me, or you like to live dangerously close to the edge. (discovers her guard is dead) I guess it's the latter.

    • Dr. Grohl: You can't destroy the suit without murdering her.
      Tess: Lana Lang was born to be a martyr.

    • Lana: I'm not here to hurt you, Tess. I'm here as your friend.
      Tess: My BFF who tears open my safe with her bare hands and burns all my research. I think you're stretching the definition of "friendship" just a little bit.
