View Quote Jimmy Olsen: Why don't you guys track down Lex Luthor? I mean, no one's seen him since his fifth appeal and he has more bad history with Superman than anyone, maybe he's got something to say?
Perry White: Luthor is yesterday's news.
Clark Kent: Jimmy, how did Lex Luthor get out of prison?
Jimmy Olsen: Well, the appeals court called Superman as a witness and he wasn't around. How much do you think that pisses off Superman?
Clark Kent: [seething with anger] A lot?
Jimmy Olsen: A lot.
View Quote Jimmy Olsen: [leans over an unsuspecting Clark who is holding a family photo of Lois Lane, her fiancé Richard White and Lois' son Jason, ] Ha! Yeah! He looks just like his mom. Already takes after her too, especially when it comes to getting into trouble.
Clark Kent: Mother?
Jimmy Olsen: Oh yeah, well I guess you've been gone. Fearless reporter Lois Lane is a mommy.
[Clark cracks the glass of the photo frame with his thumb]
Jimmy Olsen: [taking the photo from Clark] I'll just take that...
Clark Kent: Sorry.
Jimmy Olsen: No, it's okay, she's got tons.
Clark Kent: Wait, she's married?
Jimmy Olsen: Yes. No! Not really, It's more like a prolonged engagement. But don't ask Miss Lane when they're tying the knot 'cause she hates that question...
View Quote Jor-El: My son. You do not remember me. I am Jor-El. I am your father. By now I will have been dead for many thousands of your years.
Lex Luthor: He thinks I'm his son?
Jor-El: Embedded in the crystals before you is the total ac****ulation of all literature and scientific fact of dozens of other worlds spanning the twenty-eight known galaxies.
Kitty Kowalski: Can he see us?
Lex Luthor: No, he's dead.
Jor-El: There are many questions to be asked. Here, in this Fortress of Solitude, we will try to find the answers together. So, my son...Kal-El...speak.
Lex Luthor: Tell me everything. Starting with crystals.
View Quote Kitty Kowalski: Lex, your friends give me the creeps.
Lex Luthor: Prison is a creepy place, Kitty. One needs to make creepy friends in order to survive. Even a man with my vast talents is worth less inside than a carton of cigarettes and a sharp piece of metal in your pocket. [walks over to his bookshelves] Do you know the story of Prometheus? No, of course, you don't. Prometheus was the god who stole the power of fire from the other gods and gave control of it to mortals, in essence, he gave us technology, he gave us power.
Kitty Kowalski: So, we're stealing fire? In the Arctic?
Lex Luthor: Actually, sort of. You see whoever controls technology controls the world. The Roman empire ruled the world because they built roads. The British Empire ruled the world because they built ships. America; the atom bomb. And so on and so forth. I just want what Prometheus wanted.
Kitty Kowalski: Sounds great, Lex. But you're not a god.
Lex Luthor: Gods are selfish beings who fly around in little red capes and don't share their powers with mankind. No, I don't want to be a god, I just want to bring fire to the people. And I want my cut.
View Quote Kitty Kowalski: Lex?
Lex Luthor: Mmm-hmm?
Kitty Kowalski: Are billions of people really going to die?
Lex Luthor: [casually] Yes.
