Cows! Kent Farm. Bo walks into a barn where a big tractor awaits, and looks at his watch. "Well, looks like it's just you and me, old girl," he says. Oh, no! Bo's cheating on the cows with the tractor! He picks up a few wrenches and starts tinkering with something. "Eh, come on," he grunts. "Come on, you," Bo grunts some more. I'm really not comfortable with the anthropomorphic stuff here. Suddenly, the jacked-up tractor buckles. Bo drops the wrench and grunts some more. See, Bo? Love hurts.
Clark walks into the Kent kitchen, calling for MamaKent. He calls for Bo. "Clark? Clark?" he hears from outside. Clark superspeeds to the barn and lifts the tractor, which has Bo pinned down. The cows are laughing with spite. "I can't move my leg," Bo says, red-faced and pained. Clark x-ray-visions Bo's leg. Yep. Broken. Like the bovine hearts out there.
Torch. Tool Boy shows up wearing a maroon pullover. He greets Chloe. He is a wee, wee man. Chloe knows who he is; she says he practically owns the math and science shelves in the library. This is the point where most math and science geeks would run from the room in shame. Tool Boy returns the "compliment" by saying that Chloe owns the current events section. He says they could both be candidates for the "Overachievers Anonymous club." Can you overachieve and be anonymous at the same time? I guess if what you're trying to overachieve is anonymity. Chloe asks what she can do for him. Tool Boy says he heard that most of the library's reference books had migrated to the newsroom. Chloe says she's been meaning to return them. Tool Boy guesses she hasn't found the time. Chloe agrees, and says sometimes she wishes there were two of her. That line would be fine if it didn't pop up again later in the episode and go from cute to annoying. Tool Boy finds the book he's looking for. It's a guide on colleges and universities. Let me tell you something, Tool Boy, based on past episodes and past Villains of the Week: I don't think you'll be needing that particular tome. Chloe asks if he's getting an early start. Tool Boy says, annoyingly, that he's going to graduate at the end of the year. So what does he need the book for? Chloe says he's just a sophomore. He says he's been piling on night classes and extra-credit work. Since when does extra-credit work earn you a degree? He says that with a Luthor scholarship, he'll be going Ivy League next year. Maybe he can go terrorize Rory. "Color me journalistically intrigued," Chloe says. Sigh. Tool Boy gives Chloe the ferret eyes. The romantic ferret eyes. "How about an interview?" Chloe asks. Uh oh. Chloe foreplay. Tool Boy agrees. He asks Chloe to take it easy on him. "Your reputation precedes you," he tells her, in his wannabe Ferris Bueller voice. Chloe says she'll leave her hard-hitting reporter hat at home. What about her bra? Lots of Chloe grinning.
