Kent Farm, daytime. Clark is coming down the stairs as someone keeps ringing the doorbell and knocking on the door. Clark answers just as Lois is opening the front door herself. She tells Clark to get the lead out because opportunity is knocking on his door. No thanks, we already have enough metaphors in this house, we don't need two or more mixed ones at a time from you. "Come on in, Lois," Clark says sarcastically. Lois tells Clark that there's good news: an intern was just promoted to Chloe's old desk. He asks if he's supposed to be happy that someone took his best friend's job. Lois says it opens up a position in the bullpen. That position: missionary. She thinks "Clark Kent" is a name that's written all over it. Clark Kent, reporter? Meh. Maybe on another show. Lois hands him an application. Clark chuckles as he shakes his head. "That's never going to happen," he tells her. Clark goes to grab his trusty red jacket so he can go clean out shit from rancid stalls and nail stuff into wood on the farm. MUCH better career choice. Lois asks if Clark isn't destined for greater things in life than working on a farm. Clark says that even if he wanted the job, he'd never work for Lex Luthor. Oh yeah. Good point. Lois asks why they were ever such good friends. They really weren't. Lois says she did some digging and found out just how far they go back. And forth. And in. And out. Oh, the old ecstasy. Clark squints. Memory hurts. Lois says they're nothing alike. "Why were you so close for so long?" she asks. Would it be crass to say, "Anal lube?" That would probably be crass. Clark says that sometimes people don't turn out to be whom you thought they were. Clark asks Lois to be careful if she's going to be working for Lex. She jokes that it sounds like Clark is worried about her. Clark squints again and then rolls his eyes. They're interrupted by Chloe, who walks in through the kitchen door. She's surprised to see Lois and asks to talk to Clark for a minute. Lois asks Clark to think about his future as she leaves. After Lois is gone, Chloe tells Clark that a plane just crashed in upstate New York. Three bodies were recovered. One of them was Edward Teague. The other two were just for show. Clark breathes heavily.
