House of Lexin'. Papa Luthor, though blind, still does a fair job bursting through opening doors. He pops through Lex's office doors in a purple tie and asks Lex what's so urgent. Lex, who is up overhead on a second level, asks Papa Luthor if he remembers the American Embassy in Moscow. Did they go together or something? Lex says it was so riddled with surveillance devices, the State Department had to abandon it. Smallville: ripped from the headlines! Papa Luthor says he has a meeting. He ain't got time for this crap. He says he doesn't have time to talk about foreign affairs. Lex says the topic is domestic. Mmmm, beer. Lex says he's discovered a bug problem in his home. Papa Luthor chuckles and says that corporate espionage is a fact of modern life. He says he's surprised Lex's security is so lax. Lex says he can't imagine how someone got access to the mansion. Are you kidding me? People come and go from the mansion, like, every week. Lex has been kidnapped from his own home! People have been shot! I thought you got free admission to Lex's mansion with every cappuccino purchase at The Talon! Papa Luthor smells the air around him. "Do I detect a faint whiff of innuendo?" he purrs. Hee. "Of course not, Dad," Lex says. "I just wanted to congratulate you on winning that contract." Papa Luthor asks if Lex is making an excuse for his defeat. Lex's mouth twitches. Papa Luthor says he doesn't have time for excuses. And I haven't got time for the pain. Excuse me while I self-medicate...ah, much better. At the door on his way out, Papa Luthor suggests that Lex call an exterminator. Lex lets a little smile escape his lips. Yep, even when you've been screwed, at least you can say you've been screwed by one magnificent bastard. After Papa Luthor leaves, Lex's cell phone rings. He picks it up and attaches a silver device to its bottom. He answers, "This is Mr. Green." The man on the other line is a handsome Asian dude. He says they're ready to close escrow. The man is standing on a city street outside a blue van with a sign that says, "Metropolis Janitorial Services." Lex asks how soon they can complete the transaction. "Today," Janitorminator says. He says they're on site and ready to go and can get Lex full audio and video. He asks if they have Lex's authorization. "Mr. Green" picks up a bug off the table and says, "Do it." Janitorminator and some Stone Cold Steve Austin-looking dude in the van get moving. As the van passes, we see it was parked in front of LuthorCorp headquarters.
