Opening credits. Isn't it enough that we have to hear Remy Zero again later in the episode? Can't we skip the song this week? Oh, wait. I can! I hit the fast-forward button.
The halls of Smallville High. Clark is panicked. He asks Pete's opinion: "Classic black or traditional red?" Pete is not amused by the racial profiling. Turns out Clark is asking about his tie/cummerbund colors for the spring formal tux he's going to wear. Well, Clark, if Wesley Snipes in Passenger 57 is to be believed, you should always bet on black. Especially if you're in Vegas at the Luxor. Pete advises Clark to stick with black. Solid. "This is no time to get adventurous," Pete says. "I don't know, Clark. Red always looks good on you." It's Lana. She comes up behind them with her wee girlish figure and her constant pink top. Clark, you're gonna take fashion advice from someone who wore a death crystal around her neck most of her life? "Red it is," Clark says, caving like a nocturnal cave monkey with agoraphobia. Pete says that now he has to go change his order or he and Clark will look like twins. "Yeah, 'cuz that happens all the time," Clark says as Pete walks off. Ah, ebony and ivory, living together in perfect har-mo-ny. Lana and Clark walk. She says he seems excited about the formal. Clark says that with the flowers, tux, and tickets, it gets expensive. I know! Why not exploit your superpowers for money? Goddamn, I'm a genius! Lana says that Clark should try finding the right dress. Clark "hmmms" in agreement. You guys know I'm not making this stuff up, right? Lana asks if the limo is out. Clark says he was thinking of asking Lex if he could borrow his. For a minute, my remote control button got too eager and I thought they were still talking about dresses. Clark says he knows Chloe really wants a limo, so he's trying to surprise her. He asks Lana to keep it a secret. Lana, who seems to have totally gotten over her Chloealousy, agrees happily.
