#301 : Il faut qu'on se parle

Après la demande en mariage de Clark, Loïs refuse en sachant que Superman et Clark ne font qu'un. Elle est un peu perturbée par ce qu'elle vient d'apprendre.

Bill Church revient avec son nouveau coeur et sa nouvelle femme, Mindy. Bill annonce à son fils qu'il a envie de faire le bien autour de lui mais malheureusement pour lui, Mindy et son fils s'allient et enferme Bill afin de faire sauter une bombe au musée en pleine réception.

Les choses s'améliorent peu à peu entre Loïs et Clark grâce à Martha et Jonathan. Jonathan explique à Clark que sa mère a refusé deux fois le mariage avant de dire finalement oui et Martha raconte l'enfance difficile que Clark a eue.

A la réception, Clark trouve la bombe mais s'il bouge, il fera tout sauter alors il demande à Loïs de l'aider. Ils réussissent. Bill Church Senior et Bill Church Junior sont arrêtés grâce à l'aide de Mindy.

       FADE IN:


   1   A RECAP OF PREVIOUS EPISODES                                                   1  

       Starting with a brief history of the Churches, Bills Junior
       and Senior... moving through highlights of the season finale
       and Lois' near demise... including most of the final
       proposal scene, right up to CLARK's rainy, "Will you marry
       me?" and now we are into the already-shot line the world's                      (X)
       been waiting to hear:

                                              LOIS
                                 (as she slips his                                     (X)
                                  glasses off)                                         (X)
                         Who's asking, Clark or Superman?                              (X)

       And off her knowing smile and his shock --

                                        _ACT ONE_

       FADE IN:


   2   EXT. STREET ALONG PARK - NIGHT #1                                              2  

       CLARK takes LOIS' hand and they run out of the park, across
       the street to a lighted doorway.


   3   EXT. DOORWAY - NIGHT                                                           3  

       Lois and Clark step into the dry and shake themselves off.
       Then they look at each other as she hands him back his
       glasses.

                                              CLARK
                         It's the new glasses, isn't it?
                         They just don't work as good as the
                         old ones.
                                 (tries for a laugh; no
                                  response; slips them on)
                         I guess the first question is, 'How
                         long have you known?'

                                              LOIS
                         Really?  I thought the first
                         question'd be, 'How'd you figure it
                         out?'

                                              CLARK
                         They're kind of neck and neck with,
                         'How mad are you?'

                                              LOIS
                         How about we save that one for
                         last?

                                              CLARK
                         Oh-kay.                                                       (X)

       Lois shivers, dripping, then sneezes.

                                              CLARK (CONT'D)
                         Here.

       He steps back, lowers his glasses and a SPRAY of HEAT VISION
       caresses her body, drying her.

                                              LOIS
                         Thanks.  So.  How long have I
                         known?  Since yesterday.  And how
                         did I figure it out?
                                 (reaches for his hand)
                         This.

       She takes his hand and we --

   4   FLASHBACK TO: THE SEASON FINALE                                                4  

       and juxtapose the scenes where Clark touched her face
       tenderly, then Superman did the same.  As Superman touched
       her, we again see Lois' look of dawning awareness.


   5   BACK TO SCENE                                                                  5   

       as Lois places Clark's hand against her cheek, the same way.

                                              LOIS
                         I've touched you before.... both of
                         you... but something about almost
                         dying sharpened everything, all my
                         senses, like putting on a pair of
                         glasses.
                                 (glances out at street)                               (X)
                         Hey.  It stopped.


   6   EXT. METROPOLIS STREET - NIGHT                                                 6  

       Deserted.  Glistening in lamplight.  Lois and Clark walk.

                                              CLARK
                         So how mad are you?

                                              LOIS
                         Not at all.

       He stops.

                                              CLARK
                         Pardon?

                                              LOIS
                         I'm not mad at all, Clark.

                                              CLARK
                         Look, don't hold back --

                                              LOIS
                         I'm not.

       He looks at her a second, then --

                                              CLARK
                         I'm sorry, I was talking to Lois
                         Lane?  You might know her, she was
                         standing here just a second ago...

                                              LOIS
                         I'm hurt.

                                              CLARK
                         Oh.

                                              LOIS
                         Really, _really_ hurt.

                                              CLARK
                         This is gonna be worse than mad,
                         isn't it?
                                 (she turns and walks)
                         Okay, I've been rehearsing for
                         months, let's see if I can get it
                         right:
                                 (he stops her)                                        (X)
                         Lois, I know this is a shock and I                            (X)
                         wanted to be the one to tell                                  (X)
                         you... so you could understand how                            (X)
                         hard this has been... how long                                (X)
                         I've carried this secret by myself                            (X)
                         and how much I wanted to tell you,                            (X)
                         but... when I decided to become
                         Superman, I --

                                              LOIS
                         -- became a target, so anyone close
                         to you would be a target, and then
                         it got more complicated when you
                         realized you loved me --

                                              CLARK
                         -- which was about two minutes
                         after I met you --

                                              LOIS
                         -- don't try and score points --

                                              CLARK
                         -- sorry.

                                              LOIS
                         I get all the reasoning, I really
                         do, it's logical, it's even
                         thoughtful but when you get right
                         down to it, you made me believe you
                         were two people and you did it by
                         lying and that makes me wonder if I
                         even _know_ you and that hurt me
                         and you know what?
                                 (realizing)
                         I _am_ mad.

                                              CLARK
                         Okay...                                                       (X)

                                              LOIS
                         I'm... mad.  I'm really mad.  I am
                         really, really, _really_ mad!  I am
                         furious at you, Clark, I am just --

                                              CLARK
                         All right, that's good, just get                              (X)
                         it all out --                                                 (X)

       Before Clark can utter his next syllable, he hears a MAN'S
       SCREAM from around the corner.  He and Lois both turn toward
       it.  Then she looks at him.

                                              LOIS
                         Go.
                                 (he hesitates)                                        (X)
                         GO!                                                           (X)

       He whirls and becomes SUPERMAN.  She can't help but be
       dazzled --

                                              LOIS (CONT'D)
                         Whoa.

       -- then a second SCREAM from the same man brings them both
       back to the immediacy of the moment.  He's gone in a
       SUPER-BLUR.


   7   EXT. AROUND THE CORNER - NIGHT                                                 7  

       A LEATHER-CLAD THUG is on his knees, arms twisted behind his
       back by TWO MEN IN BLACK SUITS.  The Thug is the one
       SCREAMING, unwilling to let go of his knife.  The Men in
       Black exert more pressure.  The knife drops.  Superman
       SHOOTS into sight.

                                              SUPERMAN
                         Let him go.

       A TIMID MAN steps from the shadows.  Torn sweater, glasses
       askew; scared.

                                              TIMID MAN
                         No, Superman, they saved me.  I was
                         walking home and this guy --
                                 (the Thug)
                         -- jumped me and these two came out
                         of nowhere.  If it wasn't for them,
                         I... I...

       Lois comes around the corner now.  Superman looks at the Men
       in Black and notices identical insignias on their breast
       pockets: brightly stylized "C's."

       He hands the Man of Steel a card.  He glances at it as Lois
       comes up next to him.  Simultaneously, Man in Black 2 cuffs
       the Thug and flips open a cellular phone, mutters into it.

                                              SUPERMAN

                         Church Group... as in Bill Church?

                                              LOIS
                         As in Intergang.

                                              MAN IN BLACK
                         Mr. Church wants Metropolis to be a
                         better place to live and he's
                         committed his fortune to that end.

       More Men and Women in Black appear at every corner, near and
       far.  Then a black sedan with the stylized "C" on the side.

                                              MAN IN BLACK (CONT'D)
                                 (into a wrist mic)
                         Situation green, continue patrols.

       The Men and Women at the corners touch their ears, nod and
       move off in pairs.

                                              LOIS
                         I get it, you're some kind of
                         vigilante group, Church's private
                         storm troopers.  Well, that's
                         against the law --

                                              MAN IN BLACK
                         Miss, if you'd like to check with
                         the police, you'll find we're
                         operating under their purview.
                                 (to fellow MIB)
                         Let's get this man into custody.
                                 (to Timid Man)
                         Sir, come with us, the police'll
                         need your statement.  Superman,
                         thanks for trying to help.

       The condescension is not lost.  A brief look between the
       two.  Superman just nods:  oooooh-kay.  Then, with a
       no-nonsense efficiency, the Men in Black slide into the
       sedan with the Thug and the Timid Man.

                                              LOIS
                         Well, you've got to give Church and
                         his son credit -- they love
                         Metropolis and they never stop
                         trying to take over.

                                              SUPERMAN
                         I should probably take a look
                         around the city, make sure
                         everything's all right... but I
                         don't want to fly off with you                                (X)
                         mad.

                         it's all right.  I'm Just...

       An awkward beat.

                                              LOIS
                         I think it was easier talking to
                         Clark...

                                              SUPERMAN
                         You still are.

                                              LOIS
                         That's just it... I don't know
                         anymore.

                                              SUPERMAN
                         Let me prove it.

       He produces the ring again.  She looks at it, then him, then...

                                              LOIS
                         No...

       His faces creases.  He's surprised how much this hurts.

                                              LOIS (CONT'D)
                         ... I mean, I can't, yet... I need                            (X)
                         to think...

       He nods and closes the case.  A little too sharply.

                                              LOIS (CONT'D)
                         Clark...

       He can't look at her.

                                              LOIS (CONT'D)
                         ... do you understand?

                                              SUPERMAN
                         Sure.

                                              LOIS
                         You're not -- ?

       Before she can object, he takes off, leaving Lois alone on
       the night street.

                                              LOIS
                         I hate it when he does that.

                         Ever since the operation, I've had
                         visions.  I've tried to ignore
                         them, but I can't.  It's all been a
                         waste.  The money, the power.  It's

                         make the world a better place.

                                              JUNIOR

                         I'm glad to see you've come around,
                         son.

                                              JUNIOR
                         Well, I had a nice long talk with
                         the newest Mrs. Church.
                                 (pulls out cigar)
                         Dad?  Can I tempt you?

                                              SENIOR
                                 (looks at Mindy)
                         Well, uhhhh...
                                 (she nods)
                         If the nurse says it's all right.

       Junior and Senior both slide cigars into their mouths.
       Mindy is standing between them, looking at father, then son,
       as both pat their pockets for a light.

       Mindy flicks a lighter, first lights up Senior, then Junior.

                                              JUNIOR
                         She can be very persuasive.

                                              SENIOR
                         Don't I know it.

       The two men face each other, puff away, And in the merging
       plumes of smoke between them, she lets out a dainty cough,                      (X)
       then --                                                                         (X)

                                              MINDY
                         Uh, honeybun?  The man with the
                         Rodin wanted to see you about the
                         bill.

       Senior nods and moves off, leaving Mindy alone with Junior.

                                              MINDY (CONT'D)
                         I have a kind of a thought.

                                              JUNIOR
                                 (puffing away)
                         Me too.

                                              MINDY
                                 (giving his cheek a
                                  stroke that moves down
                                  the length of the cigar)
                         Me three but _this_ thought's

                         about having this fundraiser... and
                         so maybe it could be at a museum?

                         ... make the cops think Dad did it
                         to increase the value of his own
                         burgeoning collection?  So let me
                         get this straight.  You expect me

                         Yeah, pretty busy.

                         Mmm hm.  Doing what... exactly?  I
                         mean, it's been a little slow
                         around these parts, action-wise.

                                              LOIS
                         You wouldn't be trying to use your

                                              CLARK
                         Lois... there are certain things
                         about me being Superman that you're
                         just going to have to get used to.

                                              LOIS
                         Like the urgent need to umpire a
                         kid's baseball game for two hours
                         yesterday?

       This stops Clark cold.  Then begins the backpedalling:

                                              CLARK
                         Look, it was a very tense

                         each other, there were bats...                                (X)

                                              LOIS
                         Clark, what's going on?  Why won't
                         you talk to me?

                                              CLARK
                         What is there to talk about?  I
                         wanted to get married, you
                         didn't --

                                              LOIS
                         I didn't say I'd never --

                                              CLARK

                                              MINDY
                         Right, hunky.

                         ... it's soul-changing, the summit

                         Mr. Kent, Ms. Lane, my father's

                                              LOIS

                         Clark, do you realize what just
                         happened?  We were sent to
                         investigate and spent the whole
                         time wallowing.  We wallowed.  I
                         hate wallowers and that's what

                                              CLARK
                         For whatever it's worth, I x-rayed
                         under the store and found evidence

                         Church could be telling the truth.

                                              LOIS
                         Are you kidding?  Next you'll be

                         Well, I _hope_ that being married

                         That reporter...

                                              MINDY
                         Well, I know I'm kind of new at all
                         this but is it a big problem
                         killing her?

                                              JUNIOR
                         She's kind of tight with Superman.
                         Makes it complicated.

                                              MINDY
                         Unless...

                                              JUNIOR
                         Yeah?

                                              MINDY
                         You came up with some kind of
                         really brilliant way of keeping him
                         busy?  Like getting him out of

                                              LOIS
                         Well, we have clue half.  When I
                         went into his toolbox, there was a
                         diagram of the Museum of Art.  And
                         this morning, Clark and I each
                         got --

                                              PERRY
                                 (does the same)
                         -- me, too.  From Bill Church, Sr.,
                         for this Saturday, at the museum.

                                              LOIS
                         And the only connection I can see
                         is, Church, Sr. just started buying
                         art like the Russians are in
                         Oregon.

                                              PERRY
                         So you think he might be out to
                         increase the value of his
                         collection by ridding the world of
                         a few Modiglianis?

                         Son, I never told you this but...
                         your Mom turned me down the first
                         time I asked her to marry me.

                                              CLARK
                         You're kidding.

                                              JONATHAN
                         Actually, the first two times.

                                              CLARK
                         What'd you do?

                                              JONATHAN
                         I sulked.  Dove into my work.
                         Unfortunately, it was winter, so I
                         looked pretty silly plowing those
                         fields in the snow.  Anyway, around
                         about spring, I finally realized
                         that getting married wasn't just
                         about my feelings, hurt as they
                         were.  Your Mom was young, scared;
                         she knew she loved me but was it a
                         lifetime kind of love?  She
                         needed...


  51   INT. LOIS' APARTMENT - DAY                                                    51

                                              LOIS
                         What?

                                              CLARK
                         Just found a job for Superman.

       He starts to move, then his X-RAY VISION picks up RIPPLING                      (X)
       WAVES of ENERGY, emitted from the bomb, hitting his body,
       as he hears the Voice of Joe the Blow:                                          (X)

                                              VOICE
                         Superman.  This is the pre-recorded
                         voice of your friendly neighborhood
                         bomber...

                                              LOIS
                                 (noting Clark's
                                  stillness)
                         What is it?

                                              LOIS
                         What's wrong?  Clark?

                                              CLARK
                         Lois, I can't move or I'll set off
                         the bomb.

       Junior walks up and slaps Clark on the back.

                                              JUNIOR
                         Enjoying the party?

       Lois and Clark exchange a look of undisguised dread and we...

                                                                   FADE OUT:

       Clark is frozen in place, Lois next to him.

                                              VOICE
                         ... and don't even think about
                         getting to the bomb before it goes
                         off.  As fast as you are, you'll
                         never make it.

                                              LOIS
                         We've got to do something, the
                         bomb's not here for decoration --
                         it's going to go off, no matter
                         what.

                                              CLARK
                         I think I have an idea.


  58   JUNIOR                                                                        58  

       makes his way to Senior.

                                              JUNIOR
                         Dad?  Can you spare five minutes?
                         I've got a surprise for you.

                                              SENIOR
                         What kind of surprise?

                                              JUNIOR
                         A little something I bought that
                         I'd like us to donate to the museum
                         together.

                                              SENIOR
                                 (touched)
                         Oh, son...

                                              JUNIOR
                         It's being delivered to the store,
                         I thought we'd bring it back
                         together.

       They head out, passing Mindy, who kisses her husband on the
       cheek, then as he moves out onto the street and Junior
       lingers:

                                              MINDY
                         A little family reunion at your
                         place?


  59   BACK TO LOIS AND CLARK                                                        59  

                                              CLARK
                         The sensors are locked onto me.
                         But if you could move toward the
                         bomb...

                                              LOIS
                         And?

                                              CLARK
                         Defuse it.

                                              LOIS
                         Defuse it?  What am I, a Navy Seal?

                                              CLARK
                         I can tell you what to look for.

                                              LOIS
                         Why can't I go get the bomb squad?                            (X)
                                 (quickly)
                         Okay, okay, I'm fine.   I'll do it.

                                              CLARK
                         We can't tell anybody what's going
                         on.  A panic could set it off...
                         Be careful, try not to move too
                         fast.

       Moving with odd slow steps, Lois creeps toward the buffet
       table.  A MAN passes and gives her an odd look.

                                              LOIS
                         I'm a mime, okay?

       She continues the slow creep.


  60   BEHIND THE BUFFET TABLE                                                       60  

       Lois very slowly pulls back the tablecloth.  A WAITER bends
       to help.

                         I lost something very... personal.
                         So...

       She motions for him to back away.  He does.


  61   UNDER THE TABLE                                                               61  

       Lois peers in and sees the huge, ominous device blinking there.

                                              LOIS
                                 (softly)
                         Clark?  If you can hear me, say
                         'Lois,' loud enough --

       his super-hearing isolating her voice.

                                              LOIS (V.O.)
                         -- so I can hear _you_.

                                              CLARK
                         Lois.

                                              LOIS (V.O.)
                         I didn't hear --

                                              CLARK
                         LOIS!

       People turn and look.  He ignores them.


  63   UNDER THE TABLE                                                               63  

       Lois now slips all the way in, very slowly.

                                              LOIS
                         Okay.  I'm seeing what looks like a
                         kind of computer clock wired to
                         these really, really big canisters
                         that I assume are full of... well,
                         we don't have to dwell on that. 
                         Uh, so, do I want to detach the
                         wires?  If I'm right, say 'Lois,'
                         if I'm wrong say, 'Lane.'

                         LOIS!

       Perry comes up alongside Clark, scans the crowd.

                                              LOIS
                         Okay, there's a red wire, a blue
                         wire and a green wire.

                                              PERRY
                         You lose her, son?

                                              CLARK
                                 (whispering)
                         Uh, no, Chief...

                                              LOIS
                         I'm thinking I should pull the red
                         wire?

                                              CLARK
                         LANE!

       Perry looks at him oddly.

                                              LOIS
                         The blue?

                                              CLARK
                         LANE!

                                              PERRY
                                 (who can't hear Lois and
                         has no idea she's under
                         the table with a bomb,
                         being talked to in code)
                         Things so bad between you two
                         you're callin' her 'Lane?' Son,
                         don't resort to that, it's kid
                         stuff.

                                              LOIS
                         So it's the green.

                                              CLARK
                         LOIS!

                                              PERRY
                         That's better.  Now I took a kind
                         of private vow to steer clear of
                         you two, but I just can't help
                         myself --

                                              LOIS
                         Should I unclip it from the clock?

                                              PERRY
                         Now come on, son, quit playing
                         around here.

                                              LOIS
                         Or the explosive?

                                              CLARK
                         LOIS!

                                              LOIS
                                 (tugging at wire)
                         Got it.

                                              PERRY
                         You gotta make up your mind how
                         you're gonna treat her and you've
                         got to be consistent.
                                 (gives him a friendly
                                  shove)
                         Now go get her.

       Clark nearly tumbles over.

                                              VOICE
                         Bad boy!

       Under the table the bomb clock flashes ARMED, just as Lois
       yanks the green wire and --

       Silence.

       Clark sighs.

       Lois sighs, then comes out from under the table.  Perry sees
       this and shakes his head.

                                              PERRY
                         Oh, Lord... it's worse than I
                         thought...

       Clark moves to Lois and helps her up as Mindy breaks through
       a small crowd and sees Lois getting out from under the
       table.  She takes a deep gulp from her drinks and bolts from
       the party.

                                              CLARK

                         _We_ did great.

       And they kiss.  Perry can't help but smile.  Jimmy walks up.

                                              JIMMY
                                 (watching Perry watch
                                  them)
                         Chief, you're not back in that bad
                         habit place again, are you?

                                              PERRY
                         Son, they need us.  They've been
                         floundering without our cool,
                         objective eye.  I know it won't be
                         easy but... we've got to dive back
                         in.

                                              JIMMY
                         Well, the getting-my-own-life thing
                         wasn't really panning out anyway.


  65   EXT. COSTMART - DAY                                                           65  

       Senior is admiring a new painting that Junior has just
       unveiled.

                                              SENIOR
                         Billy, it's beautiful.  It'll look
                         wonderful in the museum.

                                              JUNIOR
                         Well, in about two minutes, it'll
                         sure stand out.

                                              SENIOR
                         I think I'm going to cry.

       Just then, police cars pulls up.

                                              JUNIOR
                         Don't cry, Dad... I'll visit every

       Many THUGGISH MEN gather around a silhouetted figure behind
       the desk.  The big chair squeaks back, a pair of feet go up
       and a match ignites in the gloom, revealing the face of

                                              MINDY
                         Boys... it doesn't look good for
