Lois says yeah. But, she adds, it's just the beginning. Oh boy! She thinks this will help her land an interview with the Red-Blue Blur. Clark says the guy avoids reporters for a reason. He asks what she'd say that nobody else has already tried. She says she wouldn't say anything. She'd listen. All right, she finally got one right. One reporter trick I use all the time is just not to say anything in an interview. Sometimes a source will talk just to fill the silence and say things they wouldn't otherwise say. You just have to know how long a pause to leave in there before they assume you are a mannequin and walk off. Clark says Red Blue might not be looking for a best friend. Clark accuses her of basing this nascent friendship on a lie. Lois walks off. Clark warns her that she may find herself in a situation she can't "Stiletto" her way out of. Lois boasts that she kicked ass the night before. Clark mentions that he tried to see her handiwork, but the guy was already out of jail when he got there. He drops the name of the lawyer, which leads to the name of the biggest crime boss in Metropolis we've never heard of, Ron Milano. He's part delicious Pepperidge Farm cookie on his mother's side. Lois says she's going to find Milano and save the world. She offers to let Clark be her sidekick as long as he doesn't slow her down. Clark wants to find Milano on his own. He tells Lois to make sure Stiletto's story doesn't get published. If it hasn't been published yet, then how do the fan-site people know about it? Answer: they don't. This is bullshit. Lois frowns, probably out of continuity pains. It's entirely possible she planted the story herself on the fan site or that someone saw it in a police report. Otherwise, the timeline is all screwed up.
