#110 : Un amour de parfum

Titre en VO : Pheromone, My Lovely
Diffusion US : 28/11/93
Diffusion FR : 24/05/94 

Pour prouver à Lex Luthor que son parfum peut rendre fou de désir n’importe qui, la parfumeuse Miranda asperge tous les employés du Daily Planet.
 
Lois devient extrêmement entreprenante envers Clark, Cat viole le réparateur des photocopieurs, Perry touche les fesses de sa femme de ménage et elle n'apprécie pas du tout, Jimmy tombe amoureux d’un mannequin et agit comme un pur macho. Seul Clark garde sa raison.

Miranda essaie d’user de son parfum sur Lex, mais l’effet se fait sentir pendant un repas avec Lois. Luthor commence alors à faire la cour à son invitée.

Pour se venger de tout Métropolis, Miranda choisit de remplacer un insecticide par son parfum à concentration maximum, afin de créer un effet permanent sur les gens de la ville.

Superman sauve la situation et feint ressentir l’effet du parfum quand il rencontre Lois, ce qui lui vaut un baiser passionné devant les yeux dégoûtés de Lex !

Finalement, Perry évite la poursuite d’harcèlement sexuel et retrouve Alice, Jimmy reçoit un baiser d’April (le mannequin), mais curieusement Cat continue sa séance de… « réparation » sans l’effet du parfum. En finale, Lex s’avoue qu’il est très amoureux de Lois Lane.

Moments forts :
La danse de voile de Loïs à Clark
Loïs qui profite de Clark

                               _TEASER_

      FADE IN:

1     INT. CLARK KENT'S APARTMENT - BEDROOM - MORNING (DAY #1)                     1

      Clark is deep in Morpheus' arms until the piercing RING of
      his alarm clock jerks him awake. Instinctively he reaches
      over to pound the SNOOZE button, but instead _FLATTENS THE_
      _ALARM CLOCK INTO A PANCAKE_.  Clark looks at his
      handiwork, shakes his head, then jumps out of bed and
      into his closet, exiting moment's later, fully dressed
      for work.


2     INT. CLARK KENT'S APARTMENT - KITCHEN - MORNING                              2

      Clark makes himself a super breakfast. First, he takes
      two eggs, cracks them open, throws them on a plate and
      _FRIES THEM WITH HIS HEAT VISION_.  Next, he reaches in
      the fridge, takes out a full gallon of milk, downs it,
      then tosses it out of the window above his sink.


3     EXT. ALLEY UNDER CLARK'S APARTMENT - SAME TIME                               3

      The milk container lands in the garbage bin just as a
      garbage man arrives to push the bin towards his truck.


4     INT. CLARK KENT'S APARTMENT - MOMENTS LATER                                  4

      Clark finishes his breakfast, hears the sound of GARBAGE
      TRUCKS in the distance, then a look of horror comes over
      his face as he remembers... what has he done?  He _MOVES_
      _INTO HYPER-SPEED OUT THE DOOR_.


5     EXT. ALLEY UNDER CLARK'S APARTMENT - MOMENTS LATER                           5

      Clark, now in his Superman garb, races down the alley and
      toward the street.


6     EXT. STREET IN FRONT OF CLARK'S APARTMENT - CONTINUOUS                       6

      Superman _FLIES DOWN THE STREET_ toward the garbage truck.
      He lands, stops the truck by holding onto the side panels.


7     CLOSE UP - TRUCK DRIVER                                                      7

      He looks in his rear-view mirror.  What happened?

8     BACK TO SCENE                                                                8

      Superman reaches into the truck just as its metal jaws                          *
      are closing, finds the empty milk carton.                                       *


9     EXT. ALLEY UNDER CLARK'S APARTMENT - MOMENTS LATER                           9

      Superman _FLIES BACK INTO THE ALLEY_, _LANDS_, but, this
      time, puts the carton of milk into the Recycling Canister
      near the trash bin.  A little boy has just finished
      emptying a plastic bag into the trash and stares up at
      Superman in awe.  Superman turns to him and smiles.

                                      SUPERMAN
                     Remember, recycle.  It's not                                     *
                     just garbage, anymore.                                           *

                             _ACT ONE_

      FADE IN:


10    INT. DAILY PLANET CONFERENCE ROOM - DAY                                     10

      The usual suspects convene at the early morning staff
      meeting.  All are tired grumpy, badly in need of
      caffeine.  PERRY takes that first important sip, winces as
      he swallows.

                                      PERRY
                     Dishwater!

                                      LOIS
                     Even my coffee's better than
                     this.

                                      PERRY
                     How's a newspaper supposed to run
                     without a decent cup of Java?!

                                      CAT
                     Anyone for herbal tea?  Does
                     wonders for the complexion.
                           (beat)
                     You should try it, Lois. Really,
                     you should.

                                      PERRY
                     Clark, the dockworker strike.

                                      CLARK
                           (pointing to the
                            newsroom)
                     See those two guys?


11    IN THE NEWSROOM                                                             11

      One man in a suit, the other in rough, workmen's clothes
      are in each other's faces.                                                      *


12    BACK TO CONFERENCE ROOM                                                     12

                                      CLARK
                     Negotiations have broken down
                     again.  I'm interviewing the
                     union _and_ management reps...
                     separately.

                                      PERRY
                     Good idea.  Lois, about that
                     article you wrote on the fruit fly
                     infestation -- could you maybe, if
                     it isn't too much trouble, give it
                     another go?  And this time, put
                     some zing into it!

                                      LOIS
                     Happy to, Chief.  It's such an...
                           (Purposeful yawn)
                     ...exhilarating subject matter.

                                      JIMMY
                     Here's what I don't understand.  If
                     this malathion spray is so safe,
                     how come they tell you to put your
                     pets inside when they're using it?

                                      PERRY
                     Precautionary measure.                                           *

      Just then the door to the conference room opens and
      REHALIA, The fifty-ish Ecuadorian janitoress enters to
      empty the trash bins.  She hesitates for a moment, but
      Perry waves her inside.

                                      PERRY
                     That's okay, Rehalia, come on in.
                           (back to the troops)
                     I suppose we should lead with the
                     latest counter-revolution in
                     Russia.

                                      CLARK
                     I believe it's counter,
                     counter-revolution, Chief.

                                      PERRY
                     Who can keep track... what the Sam
                     Hill's going on?


13    PERRY'S POV - IN THE PIT                                                    13

      Cameras, lighting equipment, and a model's runway are
      being hauled in followed by troops of technicians,
      denim-clad photographers and their assistants.

                                      CAT
                     Chief, you remember.  Today's the
                     day they're using the newsroom as a
                     backdrop to introduce that new
                     fragrance... 'Exclusive.'
                     Marketing set it up.

                                      CAT
                     It's been on for months.
                           (beat)
                     Look, there's Elle Taylor, and...
                     Rachel Roberts and _April_
                     _Stephens_!  I have to get an
                     interview...

      Cat looks to Perry who nods and Cat's out the door.

                                      LOIS
                     How're we supposed to get any work
                     done around here?

      Jimmy's staring at the girls as they file in.

                                      JIMMY
                     Who cares?  Chief, look at _her_.

      Jimmy points but Perry turns away.

                                      PERRY
                     I _can't_ look, Jimmy.  Alice would
                     have my hide.

                                      CLARK
                     How would she find out?

                                      PERRY
                     The woman has spies everywhere.

                                      JIMMY
                     You don't think there's any small
                     possibility that a girl like that
                     would go out with a man like me?
                           (off their looks)
                     Thought so.

                                                            CUT TO:


14    INT. LEX LUTHOR'S STUDY - DAY                                               14

      Two Fencers, in masks and full gear, duel the length of
      the room, knocking over furniture, smashing a vase, etc...
      one leaps up on the desk to escape certain death, then
      leaps off again to thrust, finds an opening in his
      attacker's side.  A tiny spot of blood seeps through the
      material.  The fencers remove their masks.  The victor is
      LEX LUTHOR, who bows to his Fencing Partner, who returns
      the bow, then exits the room, holding his side.  NIGEL
      enters.

                                      NIGEL
                     A Ms. Miranda to see you, sir.

      Luthor isn't pleased, glances at the clock.

                                      LUTHOR
                     All right, Nigel, show her in.  Two
                     minutes only.

                                      NIGEL
                     Very good, sir.

      Luthor moves to his desk to light a cigar as Nigel shows
      MIRANDA, a beautiful woman dressed in eclectic, ethnic
      attire, inside.  Would that her beauty matched her mood...

                                      MIRANDA
                     You cut me off, you rotten son of
                     a...

                                      LUTHOR
                     Temper, temper, Miranda.  There's
                     no reason to resort to name
                     calling.

                                      MIRANDA
                     You cancelled my funding!  How am I
                     supposed to continue my research?

                                      LUTHOR
                     Miranda.  Let's face facts.  Two
                     years ago you walked into this
                     office and offered me a working,
                     practical application of your
                     theory within six months.  You
                     claimed that by adding an animal
                     pheromone to your perfume it would
                     cause the person wearing it to lose
                     all their inhibitions and...

                                      MIRANDA
                     But I've done it!  I can prove it
                     to you!  True, the solid compound
                     wasn't working but I reduced it to
                     a liquid and...

                                      LUTHOR

                     Sorry , Miranda.  In the final
                     analysis, I do not fund losers.

      Miranda takes another tack.  She slowly, sensually
      approaches him, running her hands along his chest.

                                      MIRANDA
                     What about... us?

                                      LUTHOR
                     Us?  You were an itch.  You've been
                     scratched.

      Miranda pushes him away, wild with emotions

                                      MIRANDA
                     You can't treat me like this. It
                     was a labor of love, for you... all
                     for you!

      Nigel enters, paying no attention to Miranda's rantings.

                                      NIGEL
                     Excuse me, sir.  Lois Lane is on
                     the phone, confirming your dinner
                     Friday night?

                                      LUTHOR
                     Yes, Nigel.  I'll take that call.
                     I believe Miranda's time is up.
                     Will you kindly show her out?

      Luthor turns his back to her, picks up the phone.  Miranda
      looks down at the table, picks up a copy of the Daily
      Planet.


15    CLOSE UP - DAILY PLANET                                                     15

      The headline by-line reads:  Lois Lane.

                                      LUTHOR (O.S.)
                           (into phone)
                     Lois? How are you? Yes, I'm
                     looking forward to seeing you as
                     well.


16    NIGEL                                                                       16

17  INT. MIRANDA'S PERFUME SHOP - DAY                                             17

      in the darkened room, Miranda sits at her desk.  Daru, her
      black cat, sits in her lap as Miranda strokes her soft
      fur.  Miranda sighs, utterly disconsolate, then reaches
      for an ancient-looking letter opener and slices open some
      of her mail.  One particular note strikes her interest.


18    CLOSE UP - INVITATION                                                       18

      It says: You are invited to attend the premiere party of
      our newest fragrance, "Exclusive," at the world famous                          *

19    MIRANDA                                                                     19

      puts the invitation in her pocket.  She picks up Daru,
      gently puts her down on the floor.  Then, she reaches for
      a vial of liquid on her desk and a funnel, repeating the
      words she said to Luthor.

                                      MIRANDA
                     I can prove it to you.

                                                            WIPE TO:


20    INT. DAILY PLANET PIT - LATER THAT SAME DAY                                 20

      The newsroom has been transformed into a veritable
      perfume/fashion show complete with models and a runway.
      As the models move in and out of the crowd, they spray
      everyone with the new fragrance.  Photographers are
      everywhere, snapping pictures.  Lois, Clark and Jimmy
      huddle outside Perry's office.  Lois philosophizes, while
      Clark and Jimmy soak up the view.

                                      LOIS
                           (disgusted)
                     The beautiful people.

                                      JIMMY
                           (awestruck)
                     Yeah.

                                      LOIS
                     It's such a sad comment on society.
                     Dress a certain way, smell a
                     certain way, and the world will
                     love you.

      A gorgeous model passes by and gives Clark the eye.


                                      CLARK
                     Yeah.  Sad, Lois, very sad.

                                      LOIS
                     Anyway, like I said before, we'll
                     never get anything done today.

                                      CLARK
                     So... why don't we take the day
                     off?

                                      LOIS
                     Because it's a work day, Clark.

                                      CLARK
                     Haven't you ever played hookey,

                                      LOIS
                     Never.
                           (off his look)
                     I was student body president in
                     high school and college.  I had to
                     set an example.  Besides, what's so
                     great about playing hookey?

                                      CLARK
                     Being someplace, doing something
                     you're not supposed to be doing.
                     It's just, you know... fun.

                                      LOIS
                     I had a lot of fun in high school.
                     Chess club.  Math club.  Year book
                     editor.

                                      CLARK
                     Wow.

                                      LOIS
                     What are you saying, Clark?  That
                     I'm not fun?  That I'm not a fun
                     person?

      Clark looks at Lois, her hands on hips, and looks around
      for an escape route.  Lois turns to Jimmy...

                                      JIMMY
                     I didn't say a word!

      Suddenly, without warning, a Woman, dressed in a "peasant"
      blouse, long skirt, shawl, and wearing a hat that covers
      her eyes, appears in front of them and positions her
      atomizer in the spray position.  It's Miranda...

                                      MIRANDA
                     Have you tried my new fragrance?

                                      LOIS
                     No, thank you.  I don't wear...

                     Lois, about those fruit flies

      Then, the Woman sprays: Lois, Clark, Perry and Jimmy get
      dosed.

                                      LOIS (Cont'd)
                     ...perfume.

      Perry, Clark and Jimmy try to wave the odor off as Miranda
      quickly disappears into the crowd.

                     What died?

      Perry goes back into his office.  Jimmy and Clark are

                                      LOIS
                     That stuff's probably three hundred
                     dollars for a quarter ounce.
                     Highway robbery!


21    ANOTHER ANGLE - CAT AND APRIL                                               21  *

      Cat Grant sits in a corner with APRIL, taking down
      everything she says.

                                      CAT
                     The rumors about you and Kevin...

                                      APRIL
                     We're just friends, really.

                                      CAT
                     Uh huh.  And that story about you
                     and Mel.

                                      APRIL
                     No comment.

      Miranda continues to circulate, spraying her fragrance at
      news staffers on her way out of the pit and up into the
      lobby.

                                                            DISSOLVE TO:

22    INT. DAILY PLANET PIT - LATER                                               22

      The runway and, for the most part, the beautiful people
      have gone, the newsroom having settled down to a peaceful
      buzz.


23    LOIS                                                                        23

      sits at her desk, staring at Clark Kent.  Unconsciously,
      she starts unbuttoning the first two buttons of her
      blouse.  Clark, hunched over his computer, fails to
      notice.  Lois pulls out a compact, puts some lipstick on,
      then gets up, and very sexily strolls over to Clark's
      desk, sits on the edge of it, crosses her legs, hiking up
      her skirt in the process.

      Lois' face.

                                      LOIS
      What'cha working on?

                                      CLARK
                     The dock strike.  You know, the two
                     sides aren't really that far apart.

                                      LOIS
                           (moving closer, huskily)
                     How far apart are they, really?

                                      CLARK
                     Lois... are you feeling okay?

                                      LOIS
                     Never better.
                           (moving even closer)
                     I just... couldn't help noticing
                     how very... handsome you look
                     today.

                                      CLARK
                     Handsome?

                                      LOIS
                     Very.

                     Oh. I get it.  What do you want?
                     Research?  Your VCR fixed?  A ride
                     to the airport?  Blind date with
                     your cousin?

                                      APRIL
                     No, I haven't.

                                      JIMMY
                     No problem. Most  people just know
                     me through my photographs.  Bosnia?
                     Bierut?  Nam?

      Lex Luthor has stepped off the elevator, looks around,

                     Good morning, Perry.

                     Gotta run, Lex. Love waits for no

                                      LUTHOR
                     Well, I've had a change of heart.
                     It seems I was wrong about her.
                     Apparently, she has developed a

                     incapable of resisting their animal

                                      NIGEL

                     Oh, yes, yes indeed.  You see, I've
                     always thought of myself as an
                     opportunist, and what we have here
                     is an... opportunity.  If you
                     control men's hearts, their minds
                     will follow.  For example, a
                     politician, owned by me, is losing
                     in the polls.  A dashing fellow,

                                      MIRANDA
                     Forgive me, Ms. Lane, but the
                     unfounded suspicions of two
                     reporters hardly qualifies as a
                     criminal investigation.  Where I go
                     or what I do is frankly, none of

81    INT. DAILY PLANET - CONFERENCE ROOM - (DAY #4)                              81

      The usual suspects convene for the staff meeting.  Things
      are back to normal: the standard grumpy, miserable,
      caffeine-guzzling crowd.  Clark follows Lois inside.

                                      CLARK
                     How was your date?

                                      LOIS
                     Very... interesting.

                                      CLARK
                     What does that mean?

                                      LOIS
                     Well, Lex wasn't quite... himself.

                                      CLARK
                     That must have been a welcome
                     relief... did you find out anything
                     else about Miranda?

                                      LOIS
                     No.

      Jimmy enters, hands Lois a note.

                                      JIMMY
                     Just delivered.

                                      LOIS
                     Thanks.
                           (beat)
                     Hey, how're you doing?

                                      JIMMY
                     Back to normal.  Just plain old
                     Jimmy.

      Lois opens the note, reads.


82    CLOSE UP - HAND WRITTEN NOTE                                                82

      "Dear Lois, if you want to know everything about
      'Revenge,' I will speak to you alone, woman to woman.                           *

                           (glances back at note)                                     *
                     Nope.  Nothing at all.

      Perry walks in and sits down, rummages though his papers.
      Rehalia enters to empty the trash.  The room silences as
      she and Perry exchange polite nods.  Clark leans in to
      Perry.

                                      CLARK
                     I assume everything is...

                                      PERRY
                     She dropped the lawsuit.

                                      CLARK
                     And Alice?

                     Let me back in.  On a trial basis.
                           (beat)
                     Son, don't ever beg a woman to take
                     you back.  Chances are, they will.

      Perry looks around the table at the donut-eating, coffee
      drinking staffers.

                                      PERRY (Cont'd)
                     What is this, the Betty Crocker

                     Lois, thanks for the fruit fly

                                      LOIS
                     How much of that stuff did you
                     get sprayed with?  You became pretty
                     insatiable, even for, well, _you_.

                                      CAT

                                      JIMMY
                     April, I wanted to explain...

                                      APRIL
                     No explantion necessary.  I meet

                                      JIMMY
                     But that's the point.  I'm not a

                     You know, it's too bad.

      Lex, still dressed in his dinner clothes from the previous
      evening with Lois, awakes with a start from his chair.  He
      puts his hand to his forehead -- also feeling like he's
      got a hangover.  Nigel enters with a large bowl and
      pitcher.

                                      NIGEL
                     Good morning, sir.  We thought it
                     best not to wake you when you dozed
                     off.

      Luthor gets up, walks toward the bowl as Nigel pours the
      sparkling water into it, and stands at the ready with a
      towel.  Luthor cups his hands into the water, splashing it
      on his face.  As he cups and gets ready to splash once
      more, it suddenly all comes back to him in dreamy
      FLASHBACK... his dinner with Lois... hearing the spray                          *
      from the atomizer behind him... remembering Miranda's
      words... "All of Metropolis will know the pain of love."
      Luthor looks at Nigel.

                                      LUTHOR (Cont'd)
                     Send for my valet.  I need to dress
                     and leave immediately.

                                      NIGEL
                     To the board room, sir?

                                      LUTHOR
                     No.  To the Daily Planet.  I have
                     to find him.

                                      NIGEL
                     Who?

      spray, malathion, are in evidence.

                                      LOIS
                           (calling out)
                     Miranda?

      Miranda appears out of nowhere.  She's wearing a black
      jumpsuit, with a long aviator scarf and goggles.

                                      MIRANDA
                     Lois.  Good of you to come.  I have
                     everything all ready for you.

                                      LOIS
                     Ready?

      turns to Miranda, who takes out a different atomizer from
      her pocket and sprays Lois, who starts to cough.                                *

                                      LOIS
                     Why me?

      Lois starts to lose consciousness, falls to the floor.                          *

                     Well, I wanted to apologize to her

                     What behavior was that?

                                      LUTHOR
                     That's not important now.  The

101   CONTINUED:                                                                 101

                                      LUTHOR (Cont'd)
                     Not like you, or any other average
                     person perhaps, but in my own
                     strange, and perverted sort of way,
                     I've... succumbed.  I'm in love.
                     Hopelessly, eternally.  I'm in love
                     with Lois Lane.                                                  *

                                      NIGEL
                     It's the perfume, sir.  Your mind                                *
                     is clouded.                                                      *

                                      LUTHOR
                     No, Nigel, I'm _really_ in love.                                 *
                     I'm doomed.                                                      *

                                                            WIPE TO:

102   INT. DAILY PLANET PIT - DAY                                                102

      Lois and Clark take their coffee break in the eating area.

                                      LOIS
                     Incredible.  Love without
                     boundaries, without insecurities or
                     hangups or reasoning.  You could be
                     swept off your feet by just
                     about... anybody.

                                      CLARK
                     Your problem, Lois, is that you
                     can't admit your true feelings.

                                      LOIS
                     That's ridiculous.
                           (beat)
                     Okay, maybe somewhere, buried
                     incredibly deep inside me, is some
                     eensy weensy, microcosmic although
                     highly unlikely possibility that I
                     could feel some sort of unmotivated
                     and completely unrealistic
                     attraction to you.

                                      CLARK
                     As long as you're being honest with
                     yourself, Lois.

                                      LOIS
                     I even figured out why I was blind
                     enough to think _you_ looked like
                     Superman.

                                      CLARK
                     Oh, really?  And why was that?

                                                            (CONTINUED)

102   CONTINUED:                                                                 102

                                      LOIS
                     Simple.  Every woman in love thinks
                     her man looks like Superman.

      Lois stands and walks away, leaving Clark to shake his
      head and stare, wondering if love _will_ eventually
      conquer all.  In the meantime, all we can do is...

                                                            FADE OUT.

                            _END OF ACT FOUR_
