Li'l Flash says he's what you'd call a "Have-Not." And he steals from the "Haves." Oh, he's like that Antonio Banderas cat in Shrek 2. He even has the same color hair. "Like my dad?" Clark asks. Your dad is a computer-animated cat? Li'l Flash says not to sweat it: they don't charge you if your card is stolen. Could someone around here steal my credit card and buy me a new laptop? That would rule. "Oh, that makes it all right," Clark says, moralistically. Weren't you raiding ATMs last year? Li'l Flash tells the sob story of how the bad criminals in the slums shortchanged him so he had to steal a wallet to get a room and avoid sleeping out on the street. Didn't you get $200? That wouldn't cover a room? In Kansas? Li'l Flash says ominously that "stuff" happens on the street. Street stuff! He says that when he's asleep, he's as slow as everyone else. Clark looks at him sympathetically. Li'l Flash tells Clark not to look at him with the cow eyes, and says he can take care of himself. Clark -- employing his weakest superpower, sarcasm -- says that Li'l Flash is doing a great job with that. Li'l Flash scoffs that they should take a closer look at the mysterious Clark Kent. Flash whips around the room at superspeed and brings back a bunch of clues to Clark's life. A book on Native-American mythology. Notebooks with the name "LANA" scrawled on them. Oh, jeez. Rebecca, with the unknowing accuracy of someone who doesn't watch the show regularly, calls her "Lame-a." Li'l Flash says Clark engages in one of the most boring hobbies known to man: rock collecting. Clark says, "I don't collect rocks." Just then, Li'l Flash busts out with the Kryptonite. Clark gasps and falls. "Dude. Are you okay?" Flash asks. Clark tells him to put the rock away: "I'm allergic." Dude, that Kryptonite has a kickin' soundtrack. How does it get speakers into that little rock? Bose must make it. Li'l Flash, unfazed by the Kryptonite display, says he's heard of people being allergic to cats and dogs, but not little green rocks. "It's a long story," Clark says bitterly. We've got about 4,000 words to go. Let's hear it. Li'l Flash says they can talk more when they get back. "From where?" Clark asks. Flash says they're two "super-powered studs" (Mercy!), and they can go wherever they want. He wants to go crank it up. Have fun. Cranking it. Clark cracks a tiny smile. "You ever seen Florida?" Li'l Flash asks. He zips away. Clark smiles some more, shakes his head, and superzips after him.
