[Barging into Perry White's office] Lois Lane: Chief! I spent a week on the docks with rats and frizzed hair exposing the biggest gun-smuggling ring to hit this town in ten years and what makes the front page? Some sprouty, new age, granola-crunching fluff piece on angels! What's next? Interviews with Bigfoot? Jonathan Kent: No, son.

Martha Kent: Still, it wouldn't be bad if people knew a little more about Superman. I don't want anyone thinking you're like that nut in Gotham City. Lois Lane: Nice work, Smallville. You're only the second person I've ever seen get under Lex's skin. Clark Kent: Who's the first? Lois Lane: Me. When I dumped him. Jor-El: You know, Brainiac, somewhere in all those trillions of file clusters, there's got to be *one* that says people don't like to be spied upon. Brainiac: Then why did they create me? Jor-El: A question I often ask myself. Brainiac: [on Krypton's imminent destruction] If the council knew the truth, they would put me to work on an evacuation plan, a meaningless effort given the time remaining. Jor-El: How long? Brainiac: Hours... this world has seen its last sunrise.
