Clark: I better go.
Chloe: That's it? You filled in your damsel-in-distress quota for the day, and you're just...gonna walk away?
Clark: What am I supposed to do?
Chloe: I guess I always just figured that you'd sweep in and save the day, but you're not gonna do that, are you?
Clark: If Lana didn't wanna marry Lex, she wouldn't.
Chloe: Yeah, but Lana's not my hero, Clark -- you are. And this whole idea that you haven't told her who you really are, that you are giving up the one person that you totally love...
Clark: I'm protecting her.
Chloe: Good job. She's marrying a monster and trapping herself into a loveless life.
Clark: Oh, you think this is easy for me?
Chloe: I think it's easier than getting hurt. Clark, you don't hesitate to run into a burning building or jump in front of a bullet because nothing can penetrate that iron flesh of yours. But the one time saving Lana means putting your heart on the line, the man of steel is nowhere to be found.
