The confrontation: Lex tells his dad that the thing with Boobs isn't really business. Papa counters, saying generations of Luthors would beg to differ. He says it's always business, especially when you're dealing with those Hardwicks. "Can't you SEE she was SENT to disTRACT you?" Papa Luthor bellows. He says Sir Harry has been nipping at Luthorcorp for months. Lex says he's just another employee of the company, as was made clear when he was sent to "this charming cow town." Again with the bellowing, Papa says that empires aren't destroyed from outside forces, they're brought down from weaknesses from within. Um, I think he's talking about you, Lex. Lex rolls his tongue in his mouth. "Smallville is your TEST! Right now, you're FAILing," Papa says. Lex tells him he knows what he's doing. Papa Luthor says Boobs is playing the only card she has, and Lex is falling for it. Lex says it's his personal life. "Not when it affects my COMpany," Papa Luthor says. Lex comes toward the camera, turning his back on Papa, and we see him in his ribbed form-fitting gray shirt, all fashionably conflicted. Nice torso, Lex. Papa comes over and stands behind Lex. He says that if Lex sells out his family, Lex will truly be alone in the world. Then he offers him a glass of what I think is sherry.
Just as the moment becomes most dramatic, it's instantly diffused by the giant acting suckhole that is Boobs McChesty. She's standing in the hall listening against the door, but I don't see how that's possible because I can't imagine her fitting through a doorway with those things on her chest. She's interrupted in mid-spying by LexStalka', who apologizes for catching her doing a naughty thing. It looks like Boobs is going to say something, but once again, the show crew does us proud by cutting her scene off and making her look supremely stupid. So, huzzah!
