The Talon. Clark whooshes into the apartment by what looks like the window. He starts rifling through shelves until he hears a voice. "Smallville? What are you doing here?" Lois asks. She's wearing a very tight red dress with a cut so low that Lilliputian butchers couldn't match it. Clark starts to make an excuse, but Lois can already see he was going through Jimmy's things. I thought Lois had moved out. Why is she still driving to Smallville? In fact, why is she driving to Smallville from work in Metropolis, only to go back to Metropolis for a dinner date? Clark says that Jimmy left his bag there. He says he was in the neighborhood and thought he'd do him a favor. The neighborhood that was where you work in Metropolis? Seriously, everyone who works in Metropolis needs to just move there already and stop driving me nuts with this fucked-up geography. Lois asks if he's Jimmy's errand boy. Clark says he's Jimmy's friend. He asks if there's anything wrong with it. Lois says no, and quickly turns around. She asks Clark to zip her up. She moves her hair. Clark stares at her bare back and black bra strap. Yowza, Clark. Make a move! He hesitantly steps forward, then back, then forward again as cute music plays. Clark reaches out like he's handling a nuclear warhead. He frowns and latches the top of her dress, then zips up the rest. The camera pivots around Lois. Clark asks why she's so dressed up. She says she's going on a date. She puts a hand on his chest and explains that when a guy likes a girl, he asks her out. "I know what a date is," he says defensively. Then maybe you should go on one. "Who's the unlucky guy?" Clark asks. Lois tells him that it's a new hire at the paper. Unwise, that. She says that unlike some new hires, this guy is a serious journalist. She adds that the sparks were flying everywhere and she's surprised the bullpen didn't burn down. Oh, gag. "You always wear so little on the first date?" Clark asks. Snap! Wow. He went there. Lois looks down at herself. She asks if Clark has a problem with the way she looks. Clark says no. He hides his boner as he says he's just looking out for Lois. All of her. Especially the boobies. Lois says she's a big girl and can take care of herself. There's a knock at the door. Lois answers. It's Dead Zone. He drove all the way to Smallville for their date? Where are they going to eat, the bowling alley? He hands her a bouquet with orchids, which is totally stealing my move. Dammit! He notices Clark in the room. Clark is frowning. Lois introduces him as one of the paper's sharpest errand boys. Clark is mad. Dead Zone reaches for a handshake. So does Clark, but Lois pushes him out the door, so their hands miss. Lois reminds him to drop off some papers and pick up her dry cleaning. Before Clark can respond with a non-witticism, Lois has closed the door on him. Lois apologizes for the wet-behind-the-ears Clark. She smells her flowers. They smell flowery.
