Sunlight streams in to Lois's nicely furnished but messy dorm room. The alarm clock reads 7:20. There's a knock at her door. Lois, groggy, and cuddling one of her bunny slippers, rolls over. She tells the person at the door to go away. Whoever it is keeps knocking. Lois rouses herself. She starts to threaten the person at the door and complaining that it's 7 AM. How does she know if she didn't look at the clock? At the door are two police officers. She asks them not to talk so loud. The police officer tells Lois that she had an altercation the night before. Lois laughs off the chest-kicking incident. The police officer tells her that the boy is paralyzed: "You're under arrest." The other cop passes awkwardly into the shot, and then gets behind her to cuff her. Lois's smart-ass smile finally fades.
The cows outside Kent Farm. One of them thinks, "I feel unusually well-fed this week." Inside the barn, Bo is helping Clark pack some belongings into a "Crows" tote bag. Bo says he may have given Clark his blessing on this, but that the whole thing makes him uneasy. Old men and teenagers together on an island off the coast of Greece sunbathing and drawing numbers to see who comes out of the bathhouse alive? I dunno, Clark. Something just...doesn't...sit...well. Clark pops the bubble on my Crete theory and says that they've been watching Metropolis U. games since he was a wee lad; now the team is knocking on Clark's door. Front door, I hope. Bo grabs Clark's bag and starts walking, saying he understands that, and he's proud. Clark asks why he can't have a shot at what every high-school boy dreams of having. Carmen Electra? Bo says that Clark isn't like other high-school kids. His skin is softer, for one thing. Clark says that, on the field, he's the same. He says he's not using his abilities, and he could be the new starting quarterback for Metropolis U. Given that Clark has been playing more basketball that football on this show over time, I find that claim dubious. Bo says that Clark will be under a magnifying glass. Clark says he's pulled it off before. Bo puts down Clark's bag in frustration. He says that Met. U. isn't like Smallville High. He says it's a bigger stage with bigger problems. With mo' money. Clark says that Bo always told him not to walk away from something just because it's a challenge. Bo, with a big sigh, regrets ever saying such bullshit to Clark. Clark says, "Dad, I can do this." Bo knows. He advises Clark to stay out of trouble and avoid all the beer kegs. Clark: "Don't worry, Dad. Alcohol doesn't affect me, remember?" He...what!? I don't remember that! That sucks. I'd much rather see Clark drunk than Lois. Bo says that's not the point; Clark is underage. Bo realizes that his lecturing has reached cow suicide proportions. He lightens up a tiny bit, telling Clark that he doesn't want his son to get booted out before he gets in. Bo goes back to lecture mode and says that this is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and that he has one more very important thing to say: "Have a great time." Aw.
