Clark walks by Lana, and we get the Slow Motion of Stalkerly Affection. She's having a heated discussion with Jocko Whitney. Clark Bar can hear it all because he has that Super Hearing thing going. The "fight" he overhears consists of Lana saying, "Well, I think it is a big deal," and Jocko looking blank, wondering how he got himself tied to this sinking tugboat of a relationship. Lana, in her little cheerleader outfit and cheerleader sweater, storms off. Or in her case, with her acting range, it's more like a light drizzle off. Chloe must still think she's Dorothy Parker reincarnated, because she snarks, "There's something you don't see every day: a pompon meltdown." Chloe needs a good Superslap. Just then, a bunch of football players walk out of the school, and Chloe asks Pete to get her camera so that she can take a pic of those "cheating jockstraps." You'll make a fine journalist someday, Chloe. As Wonder Coach talks to his team, Clark asks Chloe how the players got that math midterm. Chloe -- who takes it upon herself to be a police investigator of all things -- says she's still working on figuring that one out. Somebody notices Chloe taking pictures with her big, clunky digital camera and throws a football straight for her face, just like I've been wanting to since Episode 1. Clark sticks out his hand and catches the football right in front of her, neat as you please. Pete says, "Nice catch." Chloe scolds Pete for not being mad that she was almost "assassinated." I'm sure Chloe must have some redeeming qualities somewhere underneath all that annoys me about her. Clark Bar throws the football back and, with a WHOOSH! sound effect, makes the football player clutch his stomach in pain as he catches the fast pigskin. Coach must have noticed, because as Clark walks off, he gives the boy a good, long, leering look. The kind of look that would make Lex Luthor jealous if he were around.
