Smallville (2001–2011): Season 8, Episode 10 - Bride - full transcript

Oliver gets a step closer to finding Lex, but Clark refuses to help for the time being, due to Chloe's special day, while Lois finds she has special feelings for Clark, who has a surprise (or two) waiting for him at the wedding reception.

COLIN: Now, be yourselves
and just speak from the heart.

Jimmy, Chloe...

I can't tell you how happy I am
the two of you found each other.

You're very lucky to be together.

Your wedding day is gonna be perfect.
I'm gonna make sure of it.

Stop hogging the spotlight, Smallville.

Hey, cuz, you know that I love you...

and I wish you and Jimmy
long and happy years together.

And remember what the general
always says:

"Marriage is the only war
where you get to sleep with the enemy."

- You can edit out that last part, right?
- Lois.

I told him.




I now pronounce you husband and wife.

You may kiss the bride.





Ladies and gentlemen,
join me in welcoming the newlyweds.

Do it. Yeah, do it.


Who was that?


Oh, my God. Oh, my God!


MAN 1:
Go. Get outside. Go. Go, go!

COLIN: Somebody help!
MAN 2: Come on, get out. Please.

MAN 1:
No! Aah!

Hold on, Jimmy.

Please, don't leave me.


MAN 2: There's another door at the back.
Go that way.

Get down! Get down!

This way.

Season 8 Episode 10

MAN 1: Here you go.
MAN 2: Thanks a lot. I got it.

It's 1100 hours, people.

We only got till sunset
to change this little heifer house...

into my cousin's chapel of love,
so let's pick up the pace.

Whoa, hold on, Emeril.

Dinnerware stays outside
until the reception. Presto, change-o.

Of course, no problem.

Goldilocks, this is Mother Goose,
what's the status at Bridal Central?

Ahead of schedule. Good job, Chloe.

But don't get cocky or you'll fall behind.
Over and out.

Oh. Uh, Jimmy told me you're going to be
filming this epic, Spielberg.

I want testimonials, candids, everything,
but I don't wanna know you're here.

- You're a fly on the wall, all right?
- Ring that bell.


Mother Goose to Baby Bear.

Mother Goose to Baby Bear.
Come in, Baby Bear.

I'm getting married.

Shouldn't I get bumped up to Papa Bear?

Hey, whoa, whoa, whoa.

We don't need to jinx her big day.

Seem a little twitchy there, Jimmy.

Butterflies in your stomach
starting to do the rumba yet?

Well, the only thing I'm nervous about...

is seeing Chloe before the ceremony.
It's bad luck.

What about the whole
till-death-do-us-part part?

That's gotta be nerve-racking.

Well, when you pick the right person...

there's no need for wedding-day jitters.

Good answer, Jimbo.

Speaking of, since you don't have
a plus one tonight...

I'd like you to meet one of my friends.

Name's Clark Kent.

- You heard of him?
- Put away your bow and arrow, Cupid.

That bumbling tadpole
is not my prince charming.

Well, maybe you just need to jump
his lily pad and plant one on him.

Come on, I've seen the way
you two look at each other.


You need to get your eyesight checked,

Clark doesn't like me,
he likes driving me crazy.

Flirtation 101, Lane.

I mean, that's what a guy does
when he's into a girl.


Trust me...

Lois and Clark would be great together.

Feel it in my gut.


Well, take some ex-lax and get over it.


Okay, well, I'm gonna go practice my vows.
When you see Mr. Right, give him this.

- Okay.
- Thank you.


If you don't get that camera out of my face,
I'm gonna ring your bell.

I guess the groom's more frazzled
than he thought. I forgot my bow tie.


You look great.

Hey, cowboy.

Wanna give a girl a hand?

Oh, my God. I'm not supposed to see you
till the wedding.

Okay, you know what, cut. Cut.

Oh, come on, Jimmy.

This is classic.

Just go, go.

I, uh... I called your phone
and you didn't answer.

I thought that you were getting
your hair coiffed.

I made the appointment earlier.

I wish you would've told me.
I wouldn't have come over.

Jimmy, it's fine. Calm down.

No, you don't get it. This is a...

It's a disaster.

Maybe it's not so bad.

I mean, my garter belt
is a little bit temperamental.

Maybe it's good luck that you came by.

Groom sees the bride before the wedding?
It's like the Hindenburg of disasters.

- Worse than black cats, broken mirrors and...
- Jimmy, breathe.

Look, our love
has weathered federal arrests...

and heart-attack-inducing kisses
and a freakazoid bout of amnesia.

I think that we'll survive this.



That's better.

No, I guess me showing up
is just a sign...

that when no one else
is around to help...

we'll always be there for each other.



- I'm gonna go get my bow tie.
- Okay.



Chloe, it's Davis.

Look, I know I'm the last person
you wanna talk to today...

but, ahh, please, call me back.

To delete this message press...

Who was that?

Brigadier General Lois...

letting us know that, uh, we have
T-minus three hours until D-day.

So, what do you say we get ready
to storm the beach, handsome?



Are we keeping these cold?

This is cold.


Watch out for Lois.
She'll pin an apron on you...

and name you after
some sort of fairy-tale character.

What's wrong?

Lex is alive.

I was tracking a wireless ghost router
he used to bounce e-mails to Tess Mercer.

If we can get our hands on that router,
it'll tell us where the e-mails originated.

It's not like Lex to leave a trail.

He's not leaving a trail.
His routers pop up all over the globe.

But every time I show up,
all the hardware's missing.

You want me to grab the router
the next time Lex sends an e-mail.

That's right.

Based on the previous pattern,
I'm expecting one today.

We could be hours away
from locking that monster up.

I can't do this today.

What? You've given Lex, like,
a hundred second chances.

And if he's out there alive,
he hasn't made a move for months.

This can wait 24 hours. Chloe can't.

The wedding?

Is that the real reason you don't wanna go
or is that just an excuse?

Chloe's gonna understand.

No, she won't.

When I had Jor-El
bring back her memories...

I asked him to leave out the ones
about who I really am.

You know everything she's suffered
because of me.

And not to give her away
on her wedding day...

it's not an option.

Maybe Lex hasn't made his move yet...

but he will.

He's more dangerous now
than he ever was.

Chloe may not know
your secret anymore...

but Lex still does.



Sorry it took so long.
The warehouse was guarded.

It's a good thing
the infamous red-blue blur...

is faster than a speeding bullet.

So let's see it.

Is that what this is about?

Oliver, you told me
you set aside your need for vengeance.

I know you hate Lionel
for what he did to your parents.

Did? Clark, it's called murder.

You can't punish the son
for sins of the father.

That's not what I'm doing.


I remember when my dad died.

I was so angry, I almost crossed a line
that I could not come back from.

I'm not gonna let you make
the same mistake.

The truth is I'm going after Lex for you.

That's only half the truth.

Clark. You know how dangerous this guy is.
He may even know how to kill you.

Why don't you
just give me the router, okay?

It's gonna take me a couple of hours
to download it anyway.

Plenty of time to eat cake
and do the chicken dance...

before you even take off.

No. I'm gonna keep this
until after the wedding.

If you're really doing this for me, Oliver...

you'll wait until I can go with you.

What's with the fireworks?

He took the router with him.

Without that thing,
I can't make my move.

Put out the fuse, dude.


I downloaded the info while you two
were having that lovers' spat.

My God.

I have too much to do to start crying,
but you look breathtaking.

If it wasn't for you, I would look more like
the bride of Frankenstein than Cinderella.

What you did to this barn
is absolutely amazing, Lois.



Gonna answer that?

- What's wrong?
- Nothing.

It's Davis Bloome.
He's been calling all day.

Deep down, I know he's a great guy.

I just think he's a little confused.

Last week, he kissed me.

And he told me he wasn't gonna let me
marry the wrong guy.

Are you starting to have feelings
for tall, dark and scary?

All I want is to walk down that aisle
and marry the man I love.

Uh, when did you know he was the one?

Lois, don't worry.

When you meet your super stud,
you'll know.

Please, this isn't about me.
I need to get bitten by the love bug...

about as much as I need a bite
from a black widow.


- Do you have everything you need?
- Almost.

I have something old, something blue,
something new...

and I just need something borrowed
to round out the tradition.



When in trouble, leave it to Clark Kent
to get you out of a jam.

Let's see what we have here.


What are you two girls doing?

The bride needs something borrowed
to take to the altar.

How about she carry your piece
of Smallville's finest meteor rock...

down the aisle?

Hey, why don't you put that away? I...

I have a better idea.

You gave that to me freshman year
at the homecoming dance.

And you kept it all this time?

I never throw away good memories.

Thanks, Smallville.

Another pre-wedding fire put out.

If you're all set,
you and I have to vamoose.

It's almost high noon
and we have a showdown to get ready for.

Goodbye, Lex.


Oliver Queen?


So Oliver Queen moonlights
as Green Arrow.

Does Clark know about you?

I think I can safely say he knows
more of my secrets than he does yours.

You're not gonna tell me
you're down here on vacation, are you?

We both know that two hours ago...

more than 430,000 megagigs
of LuthorCorp RAM...

and Ethernet cables
were running through this place.

Sounds like we each came here
with a score to settle.

I'd say you were aiming to settle
more than a score.

He leave this note for you or me?

I'm not convinced Lex is alive.

Just because the king dies, doesn't mean
the entire empire crumbles overnight.

I just followed the leads here
to protect Clark.


Because no one else seems too concerned
that Lex found out his secret.

If you're on a trail, I can help you.

Is this your version of help?

Because it seems a little personal to me.

You're Green Arrow,
you're better than this.

You sound like Clark.

If we wanna fight for the greater good...

maybe we all have to be
a little more like Clark.


How is he?

You know, he's giving Chloe away
at her wedding.

You can come find out.

No, I can't.

It's too complicated.

She's your best friend
and it's her wedding day.

I don't understand
what's so complicated about that.

You just said we need to be
more like Clark, right?

Well, what would he do?

Smallville, chop-chop, let's go.

We can't have a wedding
without the escort to give the bride away.


Looks like you're ready.

I have it all under control.
Except for these cuff links.

They were my dad's
and I've never had to put them on before.

I guess you don't have much need
for cuff links...

when you have a whole closet
full of flannel shirts, huh, Farmer John?

Big city boy, let me give you a lesson.

You just have to make sure this part
sticks up straight and then it slides right in.

Heh. The ring, you can give that to Jimmy
when the minister signals.

And here are his vows in case he forgets.


"It's really hard for me to...

To put my feelings into words.

But from the moment we met...

I knew I wanted to spend
the rest of my life with you."

Jimmy's vows...

They're really sweet.

Yeah, he's a regular Cyrano.

COLIN: Hey, guys, how about a testimonial
before the ceremony?

- Sure.
- Great.

All right. Now, be yourselves
and just speak from the heart.

Jimmy, Chloe, I can't tell you
how happy I am...

the two of you found each other.

You're very lucky to be together.

Chloe, I know you're not picking up
because of what happened.

But I need you to call me back.

You're the only one I can trust.
I've done something horrible.


- Huh!
- Didn't mean to scare you, pal.

I saw your ambulance
while I was doing my rounds.

Is everything okay back here?

Oh, yeah, yeah. It's just a false alarm.
Probably a prank. It happens all the time.

Hey, that's blood.

- I really need to go.
- Hold on.

Sweet Mary and Joseph.

What the hell did you put in there?

What did you do?

It's not my fault. I blacked out.
I couldn't control it.

Okay, listen to me,
you need to go right now.

I'm not going anywhere.
You aren't either until the cops get here.








EMCEE: Now we'd like to ask Chloe's escort
to join her on the dance floor.

Hey, Clark.

It's time to boogie.

I know, it's weird, isn't it?

A little.

Thank you for letting us
have our wedding here.

Yeah, well...

it's the least I can do.


You were always the best friend
I ever could have had.

You say that like something's changed.

Clark, trust me.

We've been through too much together,
nothing is gonna make me forget that.

You're right.

The important thing is that your life
is everything you want it to be.

It is.

It's like I've been carrying around
this weight...

and I don't know why,
but a few days ago...

I finally let go.

Like I can move on.

Okay, CK...

my turn to dance with my wife.



Guess I can give
these well-heeled puppies a rest.

No way!

I can't believe it.

Oh, my God.



Great, thank you.

You want a glass with that?

Oliver. Just the person
I wanna see right now.


So, uh, you wanna tell me
what started this Lost Weekend?

Go and enjoy the party.

Trust me, it'll be a real buzz kill
to listen to me whine like Patsy Cline.

Yeah, you're probably right.

You know, um, I may not be at the top
of your confidant list...

but if you ever wanna talk, I'm here.

I'm just having all these feelings
and I don't know what they mean.


Well, who's the lucky guy?


Having this conversation
with an ex is bad enough...

without turning up the awkward dial.


Well, you know,
there's moving on in theory...

and then there's the moment
that it actually happens.

If you like, we can start now...

and I'll just be a really good friend.



It's like I was going along
and it just snuck up on me.

And I tried to ignore it,
but then there are these moments...

that you can't.

Maybe I was reading it wrong.

And to add insult to injury...

it all went down
at tonight's tribute to romantic bliss.


I know it sounds sappy...

but I thought...

just for a minute...


Someone needed me.

Well, I'm sure he needs you, Lois.


That's sweet of you to say,
but how do you know?

Because I know Clark.



Chloe's glad you came.

I could have used some warning.

You weren't planning on coming back,
were you?

Yeah, not until a few hours ago.

So, what changed your mind?

I'm not expecting you to say it was me.

I read about the mysterious blur
saving lives in Metropolis.

I'm proud of you, Clark.
It's who you should have been all along.

Does that mean you're happy you left?

It was the hardest decision
I have ever had to make.

But I'm glad
that I finally had the guts to do it.

I would have died
before I admitted this...

but I used to sit on my front porch...

and look across the field at this barn,
imagining a summer wedding here.

Of course, I always thought
I'd play a bigger part in it.

You probably would have
if I had given you Chloe's wedding gift.

I had Jor-El erase all the memories
that Chloe had of the real me.

I wonder if that would've made things
different between us.

I understood the lies that you told me
that protect your identity.

But I could never forgive you
for taking that away from me.

You can't mean that.

Lana, it turned your life upside down.

Maybe it was exactly what it needed.

I could have landed
a lot of places in my life, Clark.

But without you,
none of them would have led me here.

So that's it?

It's all over?

It's that easy?


But where I am now...

for the first time, it feels right.

Clark, I know neither of us could say it...

but maybe Clark Kent and Lana Lang
just weren't meant to end up together.


Kiss, kiss, kiss.


Cut the cake.


Who was that?





Let's go.

What is it?

I can't see.


MAN 1:
Oh, my God. Somebody, help!

MAN 2:
We gotta go. You okay?


MAN 3:
What is that thing?

I'm okay. Go.

MAN 4:
I can't see a thing.

Oh, my God!

MAN 5: Get out... Get out of...
Get out of my way.

MAN 6:
Get them out of here!

Somebody help!

Somebody help!



This isn't happening.

This can't be happening.



Jimmy, don't!



Jimmy, please hold on.

Hold on, Jimmy.

Please don't leave me.


It's too late.

That thing took Chloe.

Any word on Chloe?


But I'm meeting with Oliver.
He's using every satellite in his company...

to try to track down
where that thing might've taken her.

Are you all right?

Clark, there's nothing more
you can do for me.

You don't need to stay.

I know.

I need to find Chloe.



How are you holding up?

Jimmy's in bad shape.

The nurse said they had him stabilized.

But he's not out of the woods.
He has severe internal bleeding.

They're medevacing him to Star City
to one of the country's top surgeons.

I'm gonna go with him.

I'll stay there until I hear from...


Why did this have to happen to her?

Why do these terrible things
keep happening all around us?

I promise...

we're gonna get Chloe back.

What if we can't?
