Smallville (2001–2011): Season 4, Episode 3 - Façade - full transcript

Without the approval of his father, Clark kicks off senior year by trying out for the Smallville High Football Team, who are now coached by Lana's new boyfriend, Jason Teague. Former acne-ridden nerd Abigail Fine returns from the summer looking beautiful after some Kryptonite powered plastic surgery that spells trouble for Lana and a former tormentor when Abigail discovers that the side affect makes people insane and delusional to anyone she physically kisses. When Lois investigates Abigail's history, her ruthless, plastic surgeon mother, Dr. Fine, decides to silence the curious but klutzy Lois by enforcing the surgery on Lois. Meanwhile, Martha accepts a job managing The Talon while Lois starts working for the school paper the Torch, and gets just a little closer to Clark.

Freshman year 2001

Are we going to state this year?


I can't hear ya! Who's going
to be the state champions?

The crows!

I need a brave freshman to step up.

Alright, which one of you studs
thinks you're a better quarterback than me?

Kent, how about it?


That's okay.

You too busy milking cows to come and try out for the team.
The least you can do is show some school spirit.

Am I right?

Come on, kent,do you wanna take a shot
at the hottest freshman at smallville high?

Come on, Clark!

Just take your time.

Come on Clark, you can do it.

Caw! Caw!
Go, crows! Whoo!

Go, clark, you can do it!

- Crows! Whoo-hoo!
- Yay, crows! Who's the lucky freshman this year?

Probably the biggest loser like every year.

Come on, take it off.

- Hey, leave her alone.
- Stop, you guys!

Or what? We always torture
the mascot, kent. It's a tradition.

Leave me alone.

Stop, you...

Scabby abby

Scabby abby!

Scabby abby!

Put your mask back on, scabster!

All right, who's next? Who's
gonna step up and dunk her?

Poor baby.

It's taken three years,
but you finally let mommy help you.

Don't worry, sweetheart.

I won't let you waste your senior year
like you did all the others.

You promise people will like me?

They will. I promise.

Just like they did me.

Everyone will love you when they see the real you...

the one that's been inside all along.

You're going to have a senior year
no one will ever forget.

What a ball game! It's all tied up.
Five seconds left here at metro stadium.

Clark kent, the young phenom from smallville,
has led M.U.'S incredible comeback.

Kent takes the snap from his own
10-yard line. It's hail mary time.

He fades back... here's the pass

a bullet deep downfield
way past his own receiver.

Wait! Kent's now flying down the field.
He's going to catch his own pass! Touchdown!

The meteors win! Kent is unbelievable!

Nice arm, farm boy.

When's the first game?

- I'm not on the team.
- Why not?

An arm like that is a
"get out of geek free" pass.

- Well, even if I wanted to play
- Which obviously you do.

That wouldn't be the reason.

Thanks. I don't really consider myself a geek.


what do you see yourself as?

I don't know.

An outsider, I guess.

That's a recipe for wedgies
if I've ever heard one.

Have I told you how much
I'm going to miss you?


don't you have 3,000 guys to baby sit?

Do you really need
to keep checking up on me?

It would appear that way.

I know that I'm late, but I can still
make it to campus for orientation.

Save yourself a trip. Met. U.
Just yanked your acceptance.

What? They can't do that.

They can if you don't have
enough credits to finish high school.

Look, I know I missed a few classes, but...

lo, you failed the last semester.

Not to worry, though. I'm sure that clark
will be happy to show you around.

- Around where?
- Around where?

Bright and early, tomorrow morning.

You start smallville high.


You know, socially divisive cliques and hall
passes aside, this place really is not all that bad.

It's the varsity version of dante's seventh ring.

Come on, do you know how many people
would kill to relive their senior year in high school?

Make that semester. Five more credits,
and I amoutta this cowpile.

Wait a minute. Five credit sin one semester?

Lois, the only way you're going to do that is
if you add an extracurricular to your class load.

Like, say, maybe... writing for the "torch. "


no hard feelings here, cuz, but, unlike you,
the last thing I want to be is a reporter.

What could be worse than, you know,
uncovering the truth and protecting the public?

And sticking your nose in other people's business.

Like I said, you'd be perfect.

Come on. Let's go.

It's gonna be great having you here.

- Check it out.
- A new girl...

Hi, clark.


It's actually Abigail now.

You know, I almost didn't recognize you.

After an entire summer of recovery,


With any luck, this old locker will be the only thing
that stays the same this year.

Yeah, um,that shouldn't be a problem.

So, uh,

why the, uh..


I guess just one day you realize you can

can spend another year being
resentful of what everybody else has

or you can do something about it.

You know, it's our senior year, clark.

This is my last chance.

Good morning, clark. Hey... abby.

Whoa. Either she spent an entire summer at a collagen
farm, or I am shopping at the wrong makeup counter.

How old is she 17? That's like messing with the
batter before the cookies are even baked.

Don't tell me the world
isn't nicer to prettier people.

Besides, you know,I mean, it's her body. And if it
makes her feel better, then it's none of our business.


I'm just stunned that miss "letter to the editor"
doesn't find it one bit distressing that a girl would get

nipped and tucked to fit into some plastic pod person...

I think she looks great.

What a shocker.

Look, that's the problem
with high school. It's all a facade.

Everyone's hiding who they really are
and trying to be something they're not.

Well, it sounds like you've got your first article.

See you in the "torch. "

Okay, I'll write for your paper,
but you better get me extra credit.

- Hey.
- Hey.

A note through the vent of my locker.

Very creative.

Well, I pride myself on being able
to revert back to the fourth grade.

What are you doing here? If we get
caught, I could get detention.

I could get fired.

Coach teague.

I'm Clark Kent.



What are you doing here?

- Um, I, uh...
- The principal asked this

young lady to give me the grand tour.

It's good to meet you, Clark.

You know, they didn't tell me
you were Jason Teague.

This guy threwa passing record his freshman year
at metropolis university. He could've gone pro.

Yeah, well, now I'm just a transfer
to central kansas a&M.

It's amazing how quickly you fall of
recruiters' lists when you tear your rotator cuff.

Well, then, I, uh, I guess we're
lucky to have you here, coach.

Assistant coach,

miss lang.

Um, quigley's still going to be
calling the plays for you guys.

Well, actually, I'm not on the team.

I was hoping I could try out.

You look big enough. Sure.

The talon.


uh, agreed to let me manage it.


I was lucky to find a job at all, jonathan.
It's not like I have a full r?sum? these days.


if we're so worried about money,
then why don't we just go

through the books again?
We'll find some other place to cut.

Like where? We've been over
it every week for two months.

There's no way we can get out from under
these hospital bills. I'm not blaming you. I just...

I just don't want to keep waiting and risk
losing the farm. ou've worked too hard.

Yeah, so that you wouldn't have to.

It's not so bad right now.

You have the farm, and clark is going to go off
to college next year. I need something of my own.

But why does it have to be with the luthors?

I'll be selling espressos, jonathan,
not masterminding hostile takeovers.


I've always known that

you wanted to have more than just this old farm.

I'm not going to be the one to stand in your way.

- Thank you, sweetheart.
- You're welcome.

Hey, kent,

I need your permission slip, bud.

What positions have you played?

None, actually. I've never been on a team before.

My father wasn't too keen on the whole idea.

Your dad doesn't know you're here, does he?

When it comes to defying fathers,
I'm kind of a pro.

I'm not doing this for him.

You know, I've seen a lot of guys

join the team just so they can walk
around in a letterman's jacket.

Because they want people to look at them differently.

But football's just a game.

If you want to change, you gotta do that yourself.

That's why I'm here.

All right. Let's see what you got.

All right, kent.

Do something to us.

All right, guys, let's go!

Alright guys, On two...

hut! Hut!

All right, that'll work.

Line up again, guys.
Oh, man!

Checkout Scabby abby.

It's fake, you know.

Who cares...

Are you kidding me?

Men, is she hot...


I didn't mean to scare you.

Just... I can't stop thinking about you.

You mean the girl you nicknamed "scabby abby"?

Yeah, I totally deserved that.

Maybe if I'd been more patient,
I would've seen who you really are.

The most...

beautiful girl in school.

I have a lot to apologize for.

What do you say

we go some place a little more quiet?

Where are we going?

What are you doing?

You didn't feel that?

Of course I did.

No. I..

I should go.

What's going on?

Abigail, wait.

Oh, I get it. New face... same old, boring scabby.


Oh, my god.


What's happening?

What's wrong?

Oh, my god.

My face.

My God...

what did you do to me?

No! My face!

Admissions office? Look, I'm in the
nation'scream corn capital, retaking calculus.

No, don't put me on hold.
Could this day be any worse?

- No, that's everything.
- Thank you.


what's going on?

He just ran right out in front of me.

I don't know. They said he's going
to be okay. Psychically, anyway.

The cops think he kind a lost it.

Who... bret?

I just saw him at practice
an hour ago. He was fine.

Are you sure about that?


Think about it, clark.
It's the start of a new season,

scholar ships... the entire town
counting on you to be their hero?

Who knows what kind of neuroses are
hiding behind that big man on campus mask?

No way. If anything, bret was too overconfident.

He probably just didn'tsee you.

Yeah, that might explain
the broken windshield, but...

do you want to tell me why he was
running around half naked, soaking wet?

Why would he do that?

Hey, hey, last time I checked, you were
missing a few prerequisites for being in here.

So you have been checking me out.

Lois, just wait outside.

Are you kidding?

Tortured senior can't keep up
the hometown hero act in buckles?

This is as juicy as my teen cosmetic surgery article.

- Excuse me.
- Yeah.

How well did you know bret anderson?

Not as well as I'd like to know you.


Look, bret ranin front of my car. Do any
of you guys know what that was all about?

Are you used to throughout other people's mail?

Sorry. The box was addressed to the talon.

Something tells me this isn't a
book-of-the-month selection.

What's with

this fascination with ancient writings?

School project.

That must be the same project
clark's always working on.

For two people so different,
you have remarkably similar interests.

It still amazes mew hat you did with this place.

You saw promise in something everyone
else thought was beyond redemption.


This is a side of lex luthor I've never seen before.

You're coming dangerously close to being nostalgic.

Congratulations are in order.

Coach quigley called. You made the football team.

You don't have to worry, dad.
I'm not gonna hurt anyone.

I know how to control my abilities.

The person I'm worried about
you hurting, clark... is yourself.

You're gonna be tempted to run just
a little bit faster, to throw the ball...

just far enough to win every game.

You think I'm gonna cheat?

I won't cross that line. You won't
even know where that line is, clark.

Come on, think about it. You're out there, your friends are
giving it their all. You're gonna do what ever it takes to win.

That's football, son.

And with you, it's never gonna be a fair competition.

Well, let's talk about what's fair.

What's the first thing you remember
about high school when you think back?

- No, no, no...
- don't tell me it's not football.

I want that, too, dad.

And I'm sick of begging for
the same chances that you just had.

I want my own life.

You're not the first person to walk
through that door with tattoo remorse.

But you're the first one to do it without ink.


Whatever this pigment is,

it's almost as though the symbol
were branded underneath your skin.

Someone wanted to leave a mark
you wouldn't easily forget.

But you can still remove it, right?

Well, I'll have to send this tissue sample off to the lab, but I am
guessing removal won't be possible without a complete skin graft.

But we'll see.

You go to school with my daughter, don't you?

I never forget a face...

especially a perfect one like yours.

It must get you anything you want, hmm?


how's bret? I saw you two in the hall.

I don't know what you're talking about.

I'll talk to you later.

Thank you.

Um, bye. Dr. Fine.

What did you do to me?

I kissed this guy,and he freaked out. It was like...
it was like he went insane or something.

You were my first trial at this, abigail.

I mean, there's always potential for complication.

- Complication? Bret's atthe hospital because of me.
- Bret?

Isn't this the boy that named you "scabby abby"?

Maybe he got exactly what he deserved.

And lana should, too.


But lana never did anything to me.

Lana saw the two of you together.
She's already asking questions.

You think she knows?

This is a very serious problem, abigail.

If lana says anything

to anyone about what's happened
between you and this boy,

they'll take all of this away from me.

And without your treatments,

you're going to revert back exactly
the way you used to be.

Is that really what you want?


I have done everything for you.

And now I need you to do something for me.



It's the old drama room.


Oh, this is an interesting detour
from the coach's office.

I didn't even know this room existed.

Yep. Neither does anyone else, hopefully.

I still can't believe that you have a job at my school.

I know.

I guess I'm gonna have to get used
to my guys drooling over you.

I don't think you have anything to worry about.


What about clark kent?

I thought that you said you had a surprise
for me. How did this become about clark?

It was strange. He...

He kind a opened up to me today.

You have no idea how strange that really is.

- Yeah?
- Yeah.

The thing is, you know, running the
drills and putting together a...

a good team is one thing, but...

having guys like clark coming in for advice

it's not gonna be so easy when these guys are looking
at me like I'm an adult. I still feel like I'm part of the team.

But this moment isn't about me.


Hold on.


It's about this.

- Oh, dear. That would be a blindfold.
- Yes, it would.


So, what do you think you're gonna get out of this?

Nothing. It's just that

we never really got to celebrate
somebody's birthday.


so you stay right here.

- Okay.
- Okay.

Don't peek.



Jason, what are you do...


I'm sorry, lana.

I don't know if you can even hear me, lana...

but if you knew how much you meant to me...

well, I guess the polite thing to do is

cough and let you know I'm standing here, but...

that always seems so forced, doesn't it?

How is she?

Well, they don't know what's wrong with her, so it's

it's kind a hard to say.

Lex luthor.

Jason teague.

I, uh, work at the school.
I'm the new assistant football coach.


As in marion, teague & weisman?

That's my father's firm.

And you decided to get as far away
from the family business as possible.

Smart move.

It didn't exactly go down like that.
He, uh, he cut me off.

Well, what better place to kick-start
a new career than smallville high.


Certainly responsible of the school to send
over a representative to check in on her.

Oh, um,

yeah, I just I thought I'd stop byon the way home.

It was nothing.

I doubt that.

Lana deserves the best.

I hope you're it.


How's she doing?

She's pretty cut up.

They gave her a sedative, but she keeps saying,
"don't let him see me" over and over again.

It's like some kind of breakdown.

When they brought bret in,
he was acting the same way,

but the only thing they can find in common
is a spike in their serotonin levels.


- It's a brain chemical.
- That Isdand hallucinogens mimic.

It's also the word that lois misspelled three times
in her slander piece on extreme makeovers...

yeah, well, lana and bret are hardly
candidates for plastic surgery.

Yeah, but abby was.

Didn't lana say she saw bret with abby
right before he went crazy?

Maybe this procedure made
her more beast than beauty.

My parents don't understand.

They say I'm too young for plastic surgery.

Well, some parents don't
remember what it was like.

When I was your age, I wasn't
exactly home coming queen.

I worked harder than all the pretty girls,
only to watch every thing get handed to them.

Seven surgeries in two years changed all that.

You know,I was actually interested
in that new procedure you used on abby.

Is it really true that you only have to come in once?

That's why I developed the process.

I didn't want to watch my daughter go
through the pain that I endured only to have

what other girls were lucky enough to be born with.

So let's get you scheduled here.

Yes please.

You know, I'm actually running a little late.

Are you recording this?

I'm going to expose you.

Who are you to stop people from being their best?

Call me crazy,

but I've always been
a firm believer that beauty...

it's on the inside.

The people that say that are the ones
who already have it on the outside.

- Okay.
- Wow.

- You kind a let the inner slob out, huh?
- Yeah, and her name is lois.

She's been pulling these articles that abby's
mom published on this new breakthrough...

instant makeover technique.
But, uh, dr. Finer an into one snag.

It's sending the patients'serotonin levels into overdrive.

It says here dr. Fine was working on a suppression medication
called cerethro to keep the serotonin level sin check.

Maybe it worked.

Maybe abby was the trial run.

Only abby'sseismic surgery
didn't come without aftershocks.

She's passing something to people
that's super-boosting their serotonin.

That makes sense if she kisses bret,
but what about lana?

I don't know. All I do know is
that abby's not hallucinating,

so maybe all lana and bret need
is a dose of that cerethro medication.

Looks like lois is one step ahead of us.

What are you doing?

Giving you the inside scoop.

You really want to know what it was like
for Abigail all of those years?

Well, you're gonna find out.

And without the suppressant
to balance out your serotonin levels,

you'll be filing your story from the psych ward.



- Are you okay?
- Get me out of here.



I don't know how to

tell you this without sounding really stuck-up...

I already know you're stuck-up.
In fact, I wanted to talk to you about that.

You're funny.

Yeah. And cute, huh?

Okay, jason, look, I'm being serious.

All right.

Back in freshman year, I, uh,

made the cheerleading squad.

And that was my whole identity.

Putting on the face

that I thought everyone wanted to see.

I keep thinking of all the times
that you've told me that I'm beautiful.

And, um...

I can't help but wonder

how much of me you really see.

Lana, I tell you you're beautiful because of

who you are, not because of what I see.

I mean, you're the girl I flew half
way across the world to be with.

The girl who

kicks the crap out of me at xbox
and thinks it's hysterical.

I mean, I have seen you with the stomach flu where your eyes
were puffy and your nose was running, you're yakking...

okay, okay, I get the picture.

All I'm saying is,

the reasons I love you

it's not something you can see in a mirror.

That's good. I'm gonna write
that down and use that later.

I guess practice ran late, huh?

Dad, I'm sorry I disappointed you.

But I'm staying on the team.

I'm tired of living my life on the sidelines.

I realize that, clark.

I also realize that you're a senior in high school, and...

from now on, you're gonna be
making a lot of your own decisions.

But if you want to be

seen as an adult in this family, then you're
gonna have to start acting like one.

Adults in this family don't run off and

do things without discussing them first.

I know.

That's why I have just one question for you.

Are you gonna let some assistant coach from
metropolis teach your boy how to play football?

Go deep.



Admiring the genius within, huh?

It had a typo.

Oh, nice try.


I followed upon the abby story line, and

it looks like mother makeover is gonna be playing
"mirror, mirror" on the psych ward wall from now on.

- Is abby gonna be okay?
- Yeah, she'll be back next week.

So, are you excited for your first pep rally?

Not exactly the friday night
I've been dreaming of.

Oh, come on, it's your debut
as smallville's newest celeb.

Yeah, right. One plastics 'r' us piece, and they're
gonna be holding tables all over town for me.

You'd be surprised. I mean,not that I'm ceding my
stance on a woman's right to choose rhinoplasty, but...

you've got fan mail.

Looks like your little expos? struck a couple chords.

I didn't even expect anybody
to read this, let alone have A..

"life-changing experience"?


Whatever. Say what you want,
but I know inside it's getting to you.

Welcome to the bull pen, miss lane.

I'm off to see clark kent
in a wet t-shirt. Care to join me?

It's something I've never seen before.

Keep your eye on the target.

Come on, lois, didn't those guys
on the base teach you anything?

Wouldn't you like to know?

It doesn't matter, 'cause you are going down.

That'll be the day

Kent!Kent! Kent! Kent!

Whoooo! Yeah!
