No Gorillaz? No Nelly Furtado? Lo-Fidelity All Stars?
On with the scene. Clark thanks Pete for his help with the police. Pete's used to being pulled over. He says he'd rather play "deejay" than "decoy." There was a time when I would have welcomed a few more lines for Pete. Those days are ancient, ancient history. Pete asks whether the investigation is over. Clark hopes so. Somehow, over Clark's shoulder, Pete can see Chloe walking in. Clark goes to talk to her. Clark, over the music, tells Chloe he heard she visited while he was sick. Chloe says, "What are friends for?" She excuses herself to go buy a raffle ticket. She asks what could be more poetic just than her winning a computer. A Gateway, no less. The singer on stage is nowhere near his microphone as he goes falsetto. They want to be Oasis so bad.
Lana comes in. She sees Clark. Clark, wearing a bright red shirt, compliments Lana on the party. Lana gives props to MamaKent. Clark asks Lana if Chloe is all right. Lana says that Clark's being sick really affected Chloe. "Me too," Lana adds. Clark gives her the squinty eyes. Lana says it was hard seeing Clark sick. She always thought of him as invincible. Hasn't she seen him sick before, whenever she wore the green necklace? "Now you think I'm just human," Clark says. Lana says it means she cares about him. She says it's not that eloquent (Chloe, are your ears burning?), but some people are better with words than others. Chloe looks over as they're talking. She looks amazingly sad as she sees Clark and Lana do their dating dance. Steadman wails ever louder as we go to black.
Next week: Christopher Reeve! Trust me, I think this is gonna be good.
