* In the pilot, a snake is released into Lex's room while he's distracted, making you think it's an assassination attempt. It's actually a training exercise so he can intimidate the snake into backing down with a blood-curdling stare.
** Even more awesome in that John Shea actually ''did'' stare it down when the snake trainer they hired didn't show up.
* Episode 2 has Superman, incensed at Lex's endangering lives to test his abilities, pointing a gun at him, firing, and catching the bullet before it reaches Lex.
-->'''Superman:''' You want to see how fast I am?
** 'Faster than a speeding bullet' indeed.
* The first season finale has the entire Planet staff working to bring Luthor down.
* Jimmy beating Clyde Barrow in "That Old Gang of Mine" for Clark's "murder".
* Lois and Clark ''finally'' getting married.
