Oliver Queen: [to Clark and Lana] Well, if it isn't Metropolis' newest power couple.
Lana Lang: [Lana has Kryptonite running through her body] Clark I don't want to hurt you
Clark Kent: Lex already took care of that, did you talk to Dr Groll? Can they do anything?
Lana Lang: [shakes her head] No
Clark Kent: I'll do everything I can, I'll find a way to fix this
Lana Lang: They tried everything, you can't reverse the process
Lana Lang: I love you, I always will but I know what I want to do now
Clark Kent: Lana don't leave, don't leave again, stay, even if we can't be together, I still want you in my life
Lana Lang: [crying] That's where you're stronger than me, to see you on the street everyday and not be able to touch you
Lana Lang: [Clark starts walking up the barn stairs affected by the Kryptonite but continues to walk toward Lana] Clark stop
Lana Lang: [Clark kisses her but green lines begin spreading across his face as a result of the Kryptonite, he pulls back and drops to his knees] Bye Clark
[she walks away then stops]
Lana Lang: life is precious, it's amazing to protect something so precious
Clark Kent: You're amazing
Lana Lang: Remember that night at the monetary I introduced you to my parents, you told me I'd never be alone again, I'll be watching you, if I'm in your arms, we'll be together, we'll always be together, I love you
Clark Kent: [still on his knees] I love you too
Lana Lang: [Lana is looking at her old necklace as Clark comes in and sees her] I can't believe you kept this after all the pain it caused you
Clark Kent: I would never throw away something so important to me
[helps her put on the necklace]
Clark Kent: I remember you wearing this in high school, I could never look at you without falling over
Lana Lang: Even after the chip got rid of all the Kryptonite, there was still some left, I talked to Dr Groul it wasn't the chip, it was me
Clark Kent: So as well as strength and speed, you can also destroy Kryptonite?
Lana Lang: No, Dr Groul said I absorbed it, Lex designed this as a weapon, what if he was targeting you?
Clark Kent: Lex doesn't have it, you do
Lex Luthor: [voice-over] Clark Kent and Lana Lang, welcome to your destiny. You've destroyed me in every way, so now I'm going to take away what matters most to you.
Lana Lang: Lex?
Lex Luthor: Do you know what people remember about the greatest star-crossed romances? Not how the lovers met, but the way the relationship tragically ended. The skin Lana's wearing was designed to absorb enough meteor rock that you'll never be able to go near her again.
Clark Kent: You're a coward, Lex. Come out here. Face us!
Lex Luthor: No, Clark. It's time for you to face your defining moment. You can walk away, sacrifice innocent lives to stay together, or defuse the bomb and sacrifice your love forever.
Lana Lang: I know how much it hurts right now, Clark, but if you go after Lex like this, you *will* kill him.
Clark Kent: After what he's done to us, Lana, he needs to be stopped.
Lana Lang: I promise you... I will help you to punish Lex. But if you kill him, you will lose so much more than just us being together. Clark... you'll lose *yourself*.
Oliver Queen: Lex deserved to die
Chloe Sullivan: You certainly made sure he got what he had coming
Oliver Queen: What does Clark think?
Chloe Sullivan: When he turned on him, remains of a toy bomb were found
Oliver Queen: [noticing the front page with Winslow's picture on it] Well Windslow makes sense
Chloe Sullivan: Are you seriously going to let another man take the blame for something you did?
Oliver Queen: Winslow's already a killer, he killed those people at Luthor Corp, Lex is dead. The world is safer because of it. Clark is safe again.
Chloe Sullivan: This is murder.
Oliver Queen: This is justice. Although Clark might not be able to accept that, *you* know what I did was right.
[walks towards the monitors]
Oliver Queen: Don't stand there and pretend to be all innocent, I did a little video viewing of my own, it turns out when a meteor freak Sebastian Kane was in the hospital, he was visited by someone that looked a lot like you
Chloe Sullivan: That was Brainiac
Oliver Queen: Was it? It looked like a pretty natural instinct to protect Clark, you can't tell me you're not a little relieved that Lex is gone
Chloe Sullivan: A big factor of me wants to tell me that's not true
Oliver Queen: Don't tell Clark what I did, a man just ripped his heart out, he needs his friends more than an enemy
Oliver Queen: [a tied up Oliver notices the balloons] Oh I get it, the children's ward's two floors up y'know?
Winslow Schott: Excuse me?
Oliver Queen: I figured, the balloons, the monkey, the ridiculous costume, you're a clown right? Aren't you a clown?
Winslow Schott: I am Winslow Schott
Oliver Queen: Oh Winslow, I remember now, it's good to see you're still playing with toys
Winslow Schott: You should've appreciated my genius, you called me one of Star Lab's greatest minds and then you fired me but I found someone who would work with me, who appreciated my genius, none other than Lex Luthor himself
Oliver Queen: I thought he was dead
Winslow Schott: It's you who should be dead; you were supposed to die in that explosion like everyone else!
Oliver Queen: It seems you're getting angry Winslow, maybe you should take your toys and go home
Winslow Schott: When this little fella claps his cymbals 53 times, it'll be the last noise you hear
Oliver Queen: 53, a bit arbitrary isn't it?
Winslow Schott: I filed 53 patterns working for you, while Queen Industries made millions, I got nothing
Winslow Schott: The world moves so fast today. People forget how much better they had it as kids. When hours seemed like days, and a favorite toy could be a child's best friend.
[turns and looks at a doll]
Winslow Schott: Toys are powerful things, you know. They're vessels of imagination imbued with life through the simple act of play.
Winslow Schott: Yes, the game has begun. Although even the finest plan can't guarantee a flawless execution.
[sits in front of his doll]
Winslow Schott: Apparently... Ms. Mercer wasn't in the room, and Oliver Queen survived. But don't you worry. I'll be sure to tie up any loose ends, Mr. Luthor. Meanwhile... we've already begun round two.
Chloe Sullivan: [After Oliver mentions Winslow's explosives could blow up kidney stones] Pretty high praise for a guy you handed the pink slip to, what happened?
Oliver Queen: High pressure job, he snapped, he started bringing toys to work then he started bringing explosives in toys, I discovered he had gone beyond the toy box
Chloe Sullivan: Why are you telling me this when you have your very own bomb squad in Clark and Lana?
Oliver Queen: Winslow could've killed me any time in the last six years, the boy pulled the pin but I think he's working for Lex
Oliver Queen: You know Clark would never let me do what needed to be done to make sure Lex is gone forever
Chloe Sullivan: You mean killing him?
Lana Lang: Do you have any idea who could've done this?
Oliver Queen: An angry shareholder maybe, he decided to attack the same day I took over Luthor Corp
Lana Lang: It's obvious who's behind this
Clark Kent: Lex
Oliver Queen: Y'know Lana I thought you'd be the first person Lex wanted to kill, you got under his skin the most or in it, that bio chem. you're commandeering was his lifeline, his last chance at recovery
[Oliver with one hand free has Winslow in a headlock]
Oliver Queen: Unlock the other cuff, 23 and counting, Bobo's not gonna stop!
[Winslow unlocks the other cuff and Oliver breaks his finger taking him to ground]
Oliver Queen: Tell me where Lex is or I swear I'll break every artistic finger
Clark Kent: [surprised to see Chloe on Oliver's jet] Chloe. What are you doing here?
Chloe Sullivan: You know Oliver. Even the blast of a bomb won't rattle his work ethic. He asked me to come in and pull some of the files from the LuthorCorp deal.
Clark Kent: That's funny. Because I would think that Queen Industries could free up at least one employee to run his errands for him.
Chloe Sullivan: Yeah, well, I'm not exactly a Brinks security truck, but Oliver knows he can trust me.
Clark Kent: I thought I could, too. You're chasing down a lead on the bombing for him, aren't you?
Clark Kent: Lana told me about Oliver's vendetta against Lex, that's why he's tracking him, why are you?
Chloe Sullivan: Because I don't want to lose you, Lex knows meteor rocks are poisonous to Kryptonians, he knows your weakness!
Clark Kent: I've decided to use my abilities to help people
Chloe Sullivan: You don't get it, Lex declared war on you years ago; he's known your secret for months, why aren't you doing anything about this!
Clark Kent: I'm trying not to live in the past
Chloe Sullivan: That's exactly what you're doing, you think Lex is that same person you saved on the bridge 8 years ago, you don't see the monster he is underneath
Clark Kent: I'm not going to kill anyone and I'm in denial, when you were taken over by Brainiac, you could've destroyed the world and I refused to kill you!
Chloe Sullivan: I can't lie to Clark
Oliver Queen: Tell him the truth or protect him? Could you honestly live with yourself if anything ever happened to Clark?
Clark Kent: [after Lana finds a shard inside the destroyed LutherCorp containing kryptonite with the Queen Industries logo on the back] Why would he hide anything from me?
Lana Lang: He's done it before, Clark. When I tracked Lex to Cuba, Oliver showed up. He was there to kill Lex.
Clark Kent: Why didn't you tell me about this?
Lana Lang: I thought that I'd talked him down, but obviously he still has his own agenda. I think that you should show him the chip and give him a chance to explain.
Clark Kent: No, we can't trust him anymore. If he's so obsessed with killing Lex that he went behind my back, I don't want to pull him in any deeper.
Lana Lang: [breaking the bed while having sex] Please tell me that the bed was already wobbly.
Clark Kent: Lana, it's made of solid oak.
Lana Lang: [laughing] Oh, god.
[she hides under the covers]
Clark Kent: [joining her] What do you say we find out how strong the floor is?
Lana Lang: Clark, are you okay?
Clark Kent: There's kryponite.
Lana Lang: [finding a bomb fragment] Looks like this silver shard was part of the bomb. But why would they use meteor rock?
Clark Kent: It's not the first time it's been used to make a bomb more powerful.
Lana Lang: [touching the chip, she absorbs the kryptonite] Whoa. What was that?
Clark Kent: Whatever it was, Lana, I don't feel the kryptonite anymore.
Lana Lang: Maybe it was treated with something that lost its charge when I moved the chip.
Clark Kent: [seeing a "Q" logo on the chip] Queen Industries.
Lana Lang: Clark, I think that Oliver knows more than he's saying.
Clark Kent: Lana, it's a big company. They make thousands of chips a year. Why would you think Oliver would be responsible?
Lana Lang: I don't, but doesn't it seem like he's covering something?
Oliver Queen: [handcuffed to his hospital bed] What the hell?
Winslow Schott: How does it feel to not be in control for once?
Oliver Queen: Untie me right now.
Winslow Schott: That wouldn't be very much fun.
Board Member #1: Mercer's taking too many risks.
Board Member #2: Lex took a gamble on her, and it's paying off. Look at the success she's had with the Daily Planet.
Board Member #1: Lex didn't know she was funneling all of LuthorCorp's holdings into one highly experimental bio-weapon. And now she's lost the prototype. I move for a vote of no confidence.
Board Member #3: Yeah, I second the motion.
Board Member #1: All those in favor of making a change?
Oliver Queen: [entering] Aye. That is, I agree it's time for a change, but not quite how you mean it.
Board Member #1: Oliver Queen, what are you doing in enemy camp?
Oliver Queen: I'm actually the one who called this meeting. Tess sends her regrets, but she's on her way to Dubai overseeing some of our international interests.
Board Member #1: What do you mean "our"?
Oliver Queen: With Tess' cooperation, I've purchased controlling interests in LuthorCorp.
Board Member #1: If that barracuda went behind our backs and helped you with a hostile takeover...
Oliver Queen: Mm-mm. You know, I-I really don't think that the LuthorCorp board should be lecturing me on ethics, ma'am.
[as he talks, a Newton's cradle begins swinging back and forth by itself]
Oliver Queen: After all, you've been using the world as your own personal playground for way too long.
Board Member #1: The world is much better off because of the Luthors. And no pampered playboy is going to destroy their legacy.
Oliver Queen: [noticing the cradle stop] Everybody down!
