Clark tells Li'l Flash to knock it off, and asks what's up with the Spanish. What's it to you, gringo estupido? Don't you know I'm loco, ese? Li'l Flash tells a compelling but ultimately unbelievable story about going to Mexico and partaking of a sensational burrito called "El Intestino Buster." Yeah. I don't think that's what it was really called. Which is surprising, given this show's way with the Spanish language. Li'l Flash suggests that Clark take a run with him down there to try the burrito. A run for the border? Clark wants Li'l Flash to cut the crap, and asks why he came back to Smallville. Li'l Flash says he came back to hang out with his amigo. Clark, still serious, says that the last time Li'l Flash was in town, he took Bo Duke's wallet and swiped a priceless artifact from Lex. Li'l Flash is amused by the memories, but assures Clark that things are different now. Li'l Flash says that he needed a superkick in the butt and that Clark gave it to him; he swears on his "gringo" self that there's been no more stealing since then. Clark asks if he's supposed to believe that. Smartass Li'l Flash says that he could squeeze out some tears if it'd help. Clark insists on the truth, and asks what Li'l Flash was doing at The Daily Planet. The kid says he saw the "Chloealicious byline" in the paper a while back, and was in town for business; he decided to go check her out. Clark asks what business. Li'l Flash says he's a courier, taking things to places, "lickety split, don't have a fit." Exactly how many drinks did Stephen S. DeKnight have when he wrote this scene? Because he sounds like he's having an awful lot of fun here. (Cheers, mate. I'll have whatever he's having.) Li'l Flash gets a little sad that Clark doesn't believe him, and offers to be gone before Clark can even blink. Clark superzips into his path: "I don't know. I can still blink pretty fast. Mexico, huh? Wanna go get that burrito?" All right, Clark! Have some fun for once, you boring bastard. "Excelente!" says Li'l Flash. Clark grins and makes cute little faces. This is gonna be the best burrito excursion ever on this show!
