Music finishes up as we pan down from the sky to the cornfield where Poor Bubba's van is still overturned. Pete and Clark walk past it. Pete amusingly makes dramatic sounds as he parts the stalks and shows Clark the ship. Clark is flattened and floored. He asks where Pete thinks it came from. "Clark, it's a spaceship. What the hell else would it be?" Pete asks, as if he's speaking to classroom full of slow children. Clark says that it could be a specialty aircraft or a downed Russian satellite. Pete says it's way extra-terrestrial. Clark tries to play it off: he says there's probably little green guys running around the cornfields, too. Grasshoppers? Pete asks if Clark's ever seen anything like it. Clark makes a frowny face. He asks Pete if the aliens came to Earth, why they'd go to Smallville. Because of the Talon's world-class cappuccino? Pete mentions cattle mutilations (poor Bo!) and crop circles; he says the aliens would be like kids in a candy store here. Would that make Lex parfait? Pete tries to get Clark to help him lift the ship. I'm still annoyed that the authorities investigating a car accident didn't notice an alien craft four feet over. Clark asks whether Pete's just going to take the ship. Pete cockamamies that he was questioned by the sheriff; he said he couldn't remember where the truck went off the road, but he's sure the cops will be back. Doesn't. Explain. A. Thing. I hear a crow cawing as Pete and Clark start to move the ship. Man, this is boring. Clark offers to take the ship to his house. Pete stops him and says that Bo Duke will take the craft to the authorities. That, or he'll live an entire life in secret, shielding all from the awesome secret in his basement. Pete testily tells Clark that they're taking it to his house. Clark insists. Pete smacks down, reminding Clark that he found the ship, not Clark. Losers weepers, Clark. Clark finally acquiesces and even pretends to struggle to move the heavy ship.
