"Smallville" Identity (TV Episode 2008) Poster

(TV Series)


Aaron Ashmore: Jimmy Olsen



  • [Jimmy compares the red-blue blur photo of the Good Samaritan with Clark's family photo] 

    Jimmy Olsen : It's all so clear. That's what been going on between you and Chloe. She's known this whole time. And... and now this picture.

    Clark Kent : Jimmy, you're not making any sense.

    Jimmy Olsen : It makes perfect sense. It's *you*, isn't it?

  • Clark Kent : What about Lois? She's the one who's supposedly saved. Don't you think it's weird she didn't say anything about it last night?

    Jimmy Olsen : Not... really. I mean, she's a naysayer, a nonbeliever. She swears that it's her lightning-fast reflexes that came to her rescue.

    Clark Kent : So you're saying this blur saved Lois from becoming roadkill and she didn't feel a thing?

    Jimmy Olsen : See, that's how good he is.

  • Lois Lane : I write news stories, not fairy tales. Especially ones about mythical saviors that no one's ever seen.

    Jimmy Olsen : Look, I may not have a name or a face to connect him with. But I am telling you, this stealth crime fighter is as real as it gets.

    Lois Lane : Well, the only stealth crime fighter I know about wears green leather and plays with arrows. And I think he's hung up his bow.

    Jimmy Olsen : Lois, this guy is light years beyond bows and arrows. Trust me, this is the kind of story that careers are made of.

    Lois Lane : Well, without a photo, that story is about as relevant as a five-part exposé on the tooth fairy.

    Jimmy Olsen : I bet you Clark won't feel that way after I pitch him the story over dinner tonight.

    Lois Lane : Oh, Clark is coming to dinner with us?

    Jimmy Olsen : Yeah, I had a feeling you were too much of a cynic for such an uplifting piece. But, hey, you know, C.K. will be all over this.

    Lois Lane : I wouldn't be so sure. As shocking as it might seem, Smallville is no hack.

    Jimmy Olsen : Wait a minute, did I just hear you give Clark Kent a compliment?

  • Clark Kent : Jimmy, there's no way that Tess is gonna publish an out-of-focus photograph. You... you... I wouldn't even bother showing her.

    Jimmy Olsen : Too late. Caught her in the elevator, and she seemed mighty interested. She even agreed to let you write the copy.

    Clark Kent : Jimmy, don't you think you should have asked me if I was interested first?

    Jimmy Olsen : Clark, I was doing you a favor. I mean, this is a huge story.

  • Jimmy Olsen : I've been stuck in Lois' shadow ever since I landed at the Planet. And I'm pretty sure the same is true for you. It's time that we made names for ourselves.

    Clark Kent : Jimmy, I'd rather be stuck in Lois Lane's shadow than... than be in the spotlight for some make-believe story.

  • Jimmy Olsen : I'm so sorry, C.K.

    Clark Kent : Congratulations, Jimmy.

    Jimmy Olsen : To think that I just about pulled you out of a closet you weren't even in. I feel terrible.

    Clark Kent : Don't feel too bad. Actually, I'm honored you thought I could move with lightning speed.

    Jimmy Olsen : Well, you might not be superhuman, Clark. But there's a reason that I thought you were the Good Samaritan.

    Clark Kent : Why's that, 'cause I buy Girl Scout cookies twice a year?

    Jimmy Olsen : Seriously, C.K., you're the kind of guy that people can count on. Whether it's your friends or strangers... you're always there for them. That's rare.

    Lois Lane : [rolling in as Jimmy leaves]  What's rare? A pen that works in this place?
