A&M campus. SoFine is leaving a building when Clark comes up behind him, saying that they got off on the wrong foot and that he wants to apologize. SoFine, quite a bit smaller than Clark, says that if you're going to be late, you should do it with conviction. I gotta remember that one. Clark asks how SoFine knew his name. The professor asks what Clark did on his first day at campus. Clark got his picture taken for his ID. SoFine says that those pictures are in a database he studies to familiarize himself with students before classes start. He says it helps the learning process. This guy cares! SoFine asks how long Clark's been friends with Lex, an assumption he deduced from Clark's defense of his white knight. Clark says it's a long story, but that Lex isn't the man SoFine thinks. SoFine quotes Groucho Marx on honesty: to know if a man's honest, ask him. If he says yes, he's crooked. Clark says that he would think a professor would quote Karl Marx, not Groucho. Ouch, Clark, it hurts us when you try to be smart like that. The professor, wearing a blazer and jeans with a cool untucked shirt, says, "German philosophy is easy. Comedy is hard." I...I love him. Out of nowhere, SoFine offers Clark a job as a research assistant. He's working on a book about LuthorCorp, and says it would be a chance for Clark to find out the truth about Lex. Clark says he's not looking for a job. SoFine says the thing worse than speaking the truth is uncovering it. Clark is going to need about a year to mull that one over.
