Opening credits. Commercials. The movie The Seeker. They made a whole movie about Quidditch?
New establishing shot of The Talon. It looks very burnt orange these days. Hook 'em horns! The marquee says, "Have a laugh with your decaf." That's how they're memorializing recently deceased co-owner Lana Lang Luthor? Chloe sits in the apartment looking at a classified file. Helpfully, it reads "CLASSIFIED" in big red letters. Shhhhh! It's a secret! You no see! Chloe flips through papers, all of them showing files from Belle Reve Sanitarium. There are several different profiles, all with attractive headshots. Say what you will about Belle Reve, but they take amazing ID photos. Chloe stares at the files glumly. Clark walks in with Lois. He wants her to go to the hospital. Lois insists it's just a little bump on her head. It's not like this particular lady lump is going to get her on the cover of Maxim. Lois says her head has been "bonked" a lot harder than that. Explains. So much. She asks for her laptop. Chloe, who is wearing around her neck every greenish and gold coin from all the Pirates of the Caribbean movies on a string, asks what happened. Lois says they just found a spaceship. Neat! Was there a comic book convention nearby? Chloe gives Clark a really obvious worried look. Clark says, ridiculously, that it's probably just a Styrofoam prop from a school play. They're doing High School Musical: In Spaaaaace! Chloe says that makes sense. No, it doesn't. Lois says props don't knock people unconscious. Yeah, they do. All the time! She thinks it was a force field. They should force you...into a field. Man, I need coffee.
Clark says she slipped in the mud and hit her head on a rock. A very tiny rock. It happens. Clark says that he helped her up, and that's why he's got mud all over himself. He looks to Chloe for approval of his unconvincing bullshit. Lois is going to change her clothes and head to The Inquisitor. She says her editor is going to flip. Unfortunately, his previous gig was with Cirque du Soleil. He'll flip over anything. After Lois leaves the room, Chloe rushes to Clark and asks what Lois saw. Clark says she didn't see a blonde girl with a bad attitude. Chloe asks if a Kryptonian attacked Lois. Why are they assuming it's a Kryptonian and not another phantom? Clark says that not only is this girl as strong as he is, but she can fly. Everybody can fly except you. Chloe's going to be flying before you can do it. "Whoah," Chloe says. She doesn't repeat the great line from last week about Clark's inability to soar. "Sounds like we got ourselves a true-blue supergirl," Chloe says. Clonk. "Define 'super,'" Clark says. Super -- [soo' pur] (adj.) 1. What Clark is not yet. 2. Person who maintains an apartment building.
