Back at Oliver's pad, the room just got a lot gayer. Oliver tells Aquadude to pull up the LuthorCorp manifest. "Gotcha," says Aquadude. Oh yeah you do. Clark asks Bionic Bro how long they've been working together. BB says that it's been about six months, and that, at the time, Aquadude and Oliver had "already been doing their thing." I see.... Clark asks about BB's girlfriend. "Dude, don't even go there," says Aquadude helpfully. "She gave it her best shot," says Bionic Brother, without a hint of bitterness. He says that, with all this hardware in him...he doesn't finish, but Clark says he's sorry. So, was his plug not compatible with her socket? BB says that when Oliver found him, he was living on the streets. He says that Oliver offered him a warm meal, a roof over his head, and a reason to go on living. You make me sad, robot man. Oliver, who only heard half of that, asks if BB just said something nice about him. "Maybe he's starting to rust," offers Aquadude. All right, Aquadude? You know how, in the script, there are lines you highlighted that you're supposed to say? Just strike through all of those, and when it's your turn to talk, just nod sagely and let someone else cut in. Trust me, you'll come across better that way. Clark asks Aquadude how he got involved. Aw, damn. It was such a good plan, too. Aquadude tells Clark that he got into trouble after taking down a whaling vessel off the coast of Japan. BB cuts in, asking if "a little trouble" is really what he's going to go with. He says that, without Oliver's help, Aquadude's scaly butt would have gotten filleted. Talk of butts...hmmm.... Aquadude scoffs that he would have gotten out of it. Oliver, a bit twitchy, asks if that was before or after he'd been crammed into a thousand tuna cans. BB -- on the couch and casual as hell -- says, "At least you would have been dolphin-safe." Funny, the clunky lines sound so much better coming from him. "Fish jokes," mutters Aquadude. "All I ever get are fish jokes." Hey, don't look at me. I think fish puns are the lowest form of humor. Wait, no, I meant single-cell organism puns. Fish jokes are slightly higher up in the comedy food chain. Clark is amused. Aquadude asks how Lois is doing. Clark, the asshole, says, "Uh, I think you'd have to ask your boss." Oliver brushes that off, saying that now's not the time, and that they have to find Li'l Flash.
