|The ex-Mrs. Luthor, Arianna
Carlin, has a plastic surgeon create a woman who looks
identical to Lois and then kills the doctor who did the
plastic surgery. Meanwhile, anti-Superman sentiment seems
to be running rampant because he didn't save Lex. In
addition, Carlin gets herself a job as the Planet's staff
psychologist. When Lois and Clark investigate the plastic
surgeon's murder, they are surprised when a homeless man
who was near the body says that he saw Lois there. As
part of their maniacal devotion, Carlin and Dr. Gretchen
Kelly, Luthor's physician, have stolen
While Superman saves them, Lois chases after the look-alike and gets captured by Carlin. Clark also figures out that the anti-Superman sentiment is caused by the subliminal messages that Carlin has been putting in her advice columns. Yet, when Superman goes after Lois, Carlin shoots him with a kryptonite bullet. Lois awakens and takes the bullet out, and Superman catches Carlin. Upon Perry's suggestion, Lois agrees to take some time off, and, unknown to anyone, Gretchen persists in her attempt to bring Lex back.
|1. Daily Planet staff member:
Are you nuts? Luthor was a lowlife, scum-sucking
criminal. How could anybody . . . like . . . that . . .
guy? Sorry, Lois.
3. Lois: Nobody knows me better
than me. And believe me, I'm fine.
4. Lois: Who are these idiots?
5. Lois: Yeah, I'd like to meet the woman that said "I do" before I did . .. . almost did . . . didn't.
6. Lois: No, of course not, I sleep alone . . . by choice.
7. Lois: But, my reporter's
instinct says something's up. What does
Clark: My instincts say, never
argue with a woman who's just been

9. Lois: Something like me?
10. Lois: Wow, you look great. Little heavy on the eyeliner I think.
Lois double: Sorry, but you're
a little plain for me.
11. Lois: And, guys, try not to
let this place fall apart while I'm gone.

Anticipating a Kerth award nomination, Lois invites Clark to be her date, but it is Clark who gets nominated. When Lois goes to the bank, she and all of the others patrons pass out, and the bank is robbed. When they awaken, they hear a message from the guy who staged it. Clark gets a tape from bank security, which puts Lois and Jimmy to sleep, and they discover that it is the sound that is doing it. Lois and Clark find four experts on sounds, but only two are around, so they track down one -- a rock musician named Lenny Stoke.
When Superman tries to stop another robbery, a sound stops him, but he gets away, and Lois and Clark disagree over who is the best suspect. Meanwhile, Jimmy sees one of the robbers from the bank and chases him down, and both Lois and Clark end up at Lenny Stoke's club -- Lois as a trashy groupie. In the mean time, Jimmy gets caught, and Lois gets close to Stoke and plants a bug on him. Stoke blackmails the city, threatening them with harsh sounds if he doesn't get paid. Superman saves Jimmy and tries to disable the speakers, but Stoke stops him with a sound made especially for him. So Lois and Clark track down the other expert, and he tells them to look for the power source of the transmissions. They learn that Stoke intends to destroy City Hall and that he is getting power from lines beneath the city. Superman breaks in, but Stoke grabs Lois and engulfs them in an impenetrable wall of sound. Nonetheless, Superman creates a sonic boom, grabs the gun, and shuts off the power. Lois goes with Clark, as he wins the Kerth award, and, later that night, she gives Superman a rose and a kiss on the cheek.
|1. Jimmy: Wow, first sound
that can put a whole room to sleep.
Lois: No, I think Yanni did it first.
2. Perry: Now, Lois, don't you have
anything to say to Clark?
3. Clark: Since we already went ahead and made plans, I was wondering if you'd like to go to the Kerth Awards?
Lois: You mean as your date?
Clark: I was gonna go as yours.
4. Lois: Notice how I'm not
getting mad about this? You know why?
5. Perry: Son, I've seen her
like this before. The doors are locked,
|A source, Stuart Hofferman,
tells Lois that an almost-accident at an amusement park
was not an accident: Viologic, the company which
manufactured the switches knew that they were defective
because he had written a report about them. The new
billionaire owner of the company wants to make it look
like sabotage and makes Hofferman lie about it. When Lois
and Stuart are almost killed, Superman saves them, but
Lois brings Stuart back to Clark's to hide. Clark
overhears a conversation that demonstrates that the
company is paying off a man running for governor. When
Lois and Clark return to his place, however, Stuart is
gone, and everyone believes him to be dead.
After the Planet is sued for libel, Perry is forced to suspend Lois, causing her to go into a deep depression. Superman talks Lois into fighting for what she believes in, and she figures out that Stuart is not dead but merely hiding. Lois, Clark and Stuart break into Viologic and discover that the switches are still being sold and are on the new subway, along with the Kents and the Governor. In the end, Superman saves them all, and Lois is reinstated.
|1. Lois: Excuse me, no cuts.
Little girl: Who are you?
Lois: Lois Lane, the reporter.
Little girl: Big deal. My mom signs your checks.
Lois: Well, that's no reason to be rude.
Little girl: Since when? Hey, you wanna race? Loser buys cotton candy.
Lois: Just cotton candy?
Little girl: On what you make, that's probably all you can afford.
Clark: Lois, come on, she's just a kid.
Lois: You're on.

Lois: My favorite flavor is pink.
|At an art benefit which the
Daily Planet crew is attending, Lois receives a gift from
a secret admirer. However, when the gift shatters all of
the glass in the museum, it allows the theft of a diamond
by the Prankster and his sidekick. Next, he sends Lois a
diamond ring which causes her fingers to itch. Lois then
recalls a secret admirer who sent her jewelry in college
and goes to confront him. However, he turns out to be a
successful software designer, and Clark gloats when he
hardly remembers her and when he paints a different
picture of their college days.
The Prankster, in addition to plotting to sell to terrorists high-tech weaponry which vaporizes things, wants to even the score with Lois, who wrote a story five years ago which sent him to prison. When Lois begins to fear for her life because of the Prankster, she spends the night at Clark's. Later, in order to give his buyers a demonstration, the Prankster kidnaps Lois and attempts to vaporize the Planet, but Superman foils his plan. Lois fights her way out and captures the bad guys. And Clark sends Lois flowers.
|1. Lois: I haven't been able
to think of anyone who likes me enough to send me a. . .
. I'm still workin' on it.
Episode 5: "Church of Metropolis"
Written by: John McNamara
Directed by: Robert Singer
Original airdate: October 23, 1994
Guest stars: Peter Boyle as Bill Church, Sr.; Bruce Weitz as Martin
Snell; Farrah Forke as Mayson Drake; Dick Miller as Mike Lane; Steven
Gilborn; Michael Holden..
|As Lois and Clark are lunching
at Lois' Uncle Mike's cafe, Clark sees a gang member
setting an explosion, and Superman stops the fire. While
waiting for the police, Baby Rage, the gang member, tells
Lois that someone is going to kill her soon. Clark tells
the Deputy D.A., Mayson Drake, that he will testify
against Baby Rage, and Lois is perturbed by Mayson's
obvious interest in Clark.
Unlike Lois, however, Mayson is annoyed by Superman, because, in her view, he takes the law into his own hands. At the police station, Lois thinks she has been bitten by a bug, but it is a mechanical device which allows Lois to be tracked by a missile. Meanwhile, the Planet and Cost Mart, owned by Bill Church, Sr., plan to cosponsor a charity ball, but Perry doesn't know that Church is the head of Intergang, a powerful crime group trying to buy up property around Mike Lane's restaurant. Lois and Clark hear from a source in the commissioner's office that someone is trying to slow down the cops so that the Southside properties will go down in value, and the source gives them information that Intergang is behind it.
Clark, disguised as a cop, saves Mike Lane from the gang members. However, Clark starts to get suspicious when he sees Mayson talking to Church, but she gets angry when she thinks he's lunching with her in order to get information for his story. In court, Snell pulls a fast one to make it look like Mayson's office made a mistake so that the case against Baby Rage would have to be dismissed. At this juncture, Mayson comes to Lois and Clark to help her expose Snell, and Clark discovers that the bug is a mechanical one which injects a genetic tag in the person bit. Mayson pretends to ask for a bribe from Snell but tapes the whole conversation, and the judge reinstates the case. At the ball, Mayson cuts in as Lois and Clark are dancing, but, surprisingly, Lois doesn't get upset -- she figures that she will never lose Clark. As Snell is about to tell the authorities who the head of Intergang is, Church blows up Snell. When Lois goes home and is dancing around her apartment, Superman comes in and dances with her in the air to the tune of "Fly Me to The Moon."
|1. Lois: Dab, don't wipe.
|When Lois, Clark and Jimmy go
to a demonstration of an automated military machine at
Fort Truman, a general is killed. His death was planned
by Ryan Wiley and Charles Fain, another military man, in
order to gain control of the base. Wiley is an old
college classmate of Lois' and was engaged to one of her
best friends, Molly Flynn. When Lois reviews pictures
taken by Jimmy, she sees Wiley, who was supposed to have
been killed a year ago, so Lois and Clark go to see
Molly. Lois is taken aback to find her friend, a former
computer engineer, advocating the abandonment of
technology. Molly denies that Ryan is alive, although
she recently found out that he is. Ryan plans a
blackout of Metropolis technology but makes it seems like
it is Molly who is behind it.
When Lois gets too nosy, Ryan tries to kill her, but, of course, Superman saves her. Again, Lois and Superman find a clue that leads to Molly. Because of the blackout, the troops of Fort Truman are assisting in the city, and Ryan is free to get control of a satellite, with which he plans to destroy Fort Truman. Lois and Clark dress as army personnel and getm nto the base, but Clark is thrown in the brig for trespassing, while Lois and Molly are taken hostage by Ryan. Molly attempts to disarm the system, but she can't. Fortunately, Clark breaks out in time, changes into Superman and turns the satellite away from Earth. Then he nabs Ryan and Fain. And Lois and Molly make up.
|1. Lois: What am I gonna say
to her? Your boyfriend's back? We think he's starting
trouble? Hey-la, Day-la?
