Somebody's walking through some grass, and there's a bunch of very thick cables snaking along. It looks like the back of my living-room receiver. (Except for the grass.) Clark walks up to a very dilapidated-looking shack. Two small dish receivers are up on the roof. A ton of wiring and thick cables lead in through a window. It's a lot of work, but HDTV is worth all the ugly wires. Clark is the person snooping around the structure, and he tries to find a front door or a friendly "Howdy Neighbor!" doormat. When he turns around, he finds a pissed-off-looking Marshall Mouthers instead. Marshall's wearing his big-ass headphones and looks like a character from "Jet Set Radio Future." Marshall asks Clark what he's doing there. Clark says he heard about the suspension and wanted to make sure Marshall's doing all right. Clark is suddenly Principal Asskick's conscience. Marshall says that high school is irrelevant and this gives him more time to focus on his "work." Usually, when people say they're focusing all their time on their "work," it just means they're masturbating a lot more. Clark asks about Marshall's parents. Marshall says they're of the foster variety, and don't bother him if they get their monthly check. Marshall gets impatient and starts unlocking a door to get inside. Clark says he heard on the street (and by "street" I mean "Chloe") about Marshall's alien history. Is it true he once had sex with a Glarnac from Pocnard VI? Clark says he has an open mind. Marshall asks if showing Clark his "other" special powers would "appease" him. More on this later, but there's a lot of baiting and switching going on in this episode. After a pregnant pause, Marshall starts to close the door, but Clark stops him. Marshall doesn't want to be ridiculed. Clark says he just wants the truth. Clark promises not to tell anyone. Marshall must watch a lot of X-Files, because the seeking-the-truth thing works on him.
