Medical Center. Papa Luthor comes out of a hospital room. Lex is in the same hallway and notices him. Lex asks if Papa Luthor's back again from Metropolis. "Awfully long drive for quality health care," he notes. Papa Luthor asks if Lex is following him, because that would be obsessive. Lex says he heard that Papa Luthor was there and just wanted to make sure he's fine. Papa Luthor says he's visiting a former worker. He's unconscious, though, Papa says. Lex says that's quite something -- getting a visit from the CEO. Papa Luthor blabs about treating employees like family. God help them. "That would explain the lack of loyalty," Lex snarks. Papa calls Lex out for being too cynical. Lex says he's just wondering why Papa Luthor is spending so much time in town. To liven up the damn show! Papa Luthor says he's always tried to be a good dad (cough bullshit cough), but he's worried about Lex's paranoid, obsessive tendencies. Papa Luthor says that indulging those impulses makes one lose perspective on what really matters. An elevator bings and Papa Luthor boards it. Papa asks if Lex is coming. Lex stays off. Boy, Lex sure has a mighty knob on the back of his head. He turns and takes a look at Creepy Little Crazy Girl's dad. Lex -- who practically lives at the hospital -- walks into the room. When he turns to leave, CCLG is sitting there. CCLG says she tried to wake up her dad. "He needs to take care of me," she says. She says she has nowhere to go. Maybe you shouldn't have speared his gut like an olive pimento. Lex kneels in front of the girl and asks her name. Lex says he thinks their daddies are friends. "He's a bad man," she says of Papa Luthor. Lex asks if Papa Luthor did something to her dad. "He took the bunnies away," she says. (The ones in the backyard.) Lex says he should maybe talk to her mom. When he turns to ask about her, the little girl is gone.
