Clark is in the Barnness of Angstitude, reading a book called, Families in Conflict: Healing the Rift by Dr. Justin Bishop. He looks up and sees Lana walking up the stairs to the loft. She's wearing an all-pink dress. Ugh. "Wow," Clark says. Lana asks if Clark doesn't think it's too much. If by "too much" she means pink, then yes. It's too much. Clark asks why she's so gussied up. Lana asks what you call your newly discovered biological father's wife. Julie? Clark suggests Mrs. Small. I guess that works too, Mr. Huge. Lana says she fees like she's auditioning. "What if she votes me off the island?" Lana asks nervously. Clark says that anyone who gets to know Lana will realize how special she is. It just might take a few, um, seasons. Lana gets all googly about the compliment and thanks Clark. She says that's sweet. Clark says she's always telling him he should be more honest. So, what, you're gonna lie now? Lana says that Clark sees her that way, but that this lady might not. Is this scene over yet? I mean, seriously? Because I have other stuff I could be doing. Clark says that if this lady doesn't accept Lana, it'll be that lady's loss. Lana acknowledges that things have been going well with Maybe Dad, and that maybe it's the adopted-child fantasy she has, but she thinks this could lead to an actual family. Clark says that even if you have a family, it's not always a picnic. Sometimes the picnic is called off because of an argument and the fried chicken is dumped in the garbage disposal and the bones clog it all up and Clark has to use his strength to fix it. Get it? Lana says it's fine if you're a Kent. Clark says his parents aren't getting along right now. Lana says she's sorry and asks if he wants to talk about it. Clark says later. Lana's lip curls. She leaves, but not before telling Clark that whatever's going on with his parents, they'll work it out. "Some people are just meant to be together," Lana says. Long meaningful look. Kill me.
Back at the castle. What's that weird red splotch at the top of the castle? Did somebody throw paint at it for being made of fur? Inside, Lex is staring at his phone. Clark and his fugly red jacket walk in. So much for tight security. "Lex. What's the most romantic restaurant in Metropolis?" Clark asks. Lex is thinking, "He asked me, he asked me!" Lex says he's sure there are lots of opinions about that, but he would have to go with Le Blah Blah Fleur. (Yes, I am a master of the French language. No applause necessary.) Clark asks if Lex can score him a reservation for that night. "Who's the lucky girl?" Lex asks dubiously. Clark tells Lex about the picnic and how MamaKent is up in Metropolis now with Papa Luthor. Lex asks about their being up there on a Sunday. Clark asks if Lex can believe that Papa Luthor is making MamaKent work on her anniversary. As almost an aside, Lex says that, to his father, there's no such thing as a personal life. Unless Boobs McChesty is involved. Lex says he thinks, since it's the Kents' anniversary, that he can do Clark one better on the restaurant reservation. Free breadsticks? Lex gulps as he says it. Oh yeah. He might even expense a little hotel room for some Clark and Lex hospitality suite-ing. Oh, wait, that's not on the show!
