Victoria's Secret? Just stop, okay? You had me at the slutty lingerie model posing in her push-up bra next to the laptop and glass-top desk.
The hospital that Sandra Cisneros painted on the inside. Clark is walking all casual. He asks his folks when Luka will be out of surgery. MamaKent tells him it'll be a few hours, and says she's never been more proud of her superpowered, adopted son. "It was an amazing thing that you did," Bo says. But was it super? Bo says he hopes Clark understands that even though the doctor is here, Luka's not out of the woods yet. Plus there are a lot of woods in Vancouver. Clark says he knows, but he has a great feeling things are going to work. Nobody ever said intuition was one of Clark's powers. Smiles all around.
TV screen. One of those sleazy political ads where they zoom in on a politician's face until it's all blurry and distorted. This time the ad features Da Mayor and talks about bribes he took. The ad -- which Lex and Cancer Man are watching in Lex's lair -- talks about how this guy destroyed the environment, killed Santa Claus, raped your grandma, and every other evil thing you can think of. The ad asks if Smallville can afford another four years of Da Mayor. "Why are you doing this?" Cancer Man asks. Lex says the town needs an honest mayor. Cancer Man asks if Lex is running the ad. Lex says no; he's putting his money and support behind Da Mayor's opponent. Lex says CM can save himself a lot of trouble by retiring now. Cancer Man says Lex can kiss the plant expansion goodbye. Lex says he's prepared to sacrifice it if that's what it takes to defeat Da Mayor. Da Mayor says Lex isn't from the area: "People don't like you." Lex chuckles. Da Mayor tells Lex to stop laughing. He says all it'll take is some fiery campaign speeches about outside interests and Lex will start to feel the heat. Lex blah blahs a story about Winston Churchill and Pearl Harbor. Churchill broke out a bottle of champagne and celebrated when Pearl Harbor was attacked. Lex pours a drink. He says Churchill told his generals that America is like a giant boiler. Light a fire under it and there's no limit to the heat it can generate. Lex warns Da Mayor that if he starts a fire, he'd better be prepared to deal with the flames. Er. Yeah. Flames. Lex. Lex. Flames. I can definitely see that. Cancer Man's lips move around a bit at that.
