Does his teeth, bite to eat and he's rolling\\
Never changes a thing\\
The week ends, the week begins\\
She thinks, we look at each other\\
Wondering what the other is thinking\\
But we never say a thing\\
And these crimes between us grow deeper''

Ooh, the last second, something might -- ooh ooh ooh!" Come on! Enough already! I mean, you guys aren't exactly [[Series/{{Friends}} Ross and Rachel]].\\

->"Fufufu, can great detectives deduce the emotions and feelings between men and women? They can't, right? Figuring out the feelings of the opposite sex is an even more advanced art than exposing the tricks in difficult crime cases. If you ask me, romance novels have much deeper mysteries than masterpiece mystery novels."

->''"I like a little romance in my comics. That might sound a little strange considering that [[{{Batman}} my favorite character]] only sporadically has love interests, and they tend to end up being [[StuffedIntoTheFridge murdered, going insane]] or being written by Creator/KevinSmith, but it's true. Unfortunately, for every "I love you, ComicBook/LoisLane. Until the end of time," there's an "[[ComicBook/XMen Ah cain't touch yuh, Remy!]]" mucking things up... The whole point -- as they will remind the reader at length every single time they're in more than two panels together -- is that they [[CantHaveSexEver want to touch each other and can't.]] Thus, that tease becomes the default setting of the relationship, and even when there are clear ways around it -- like, say, giving [[PowerParasite Leech]] a set of headphones and a Gameboy and having him stand outside the room for a couple hours -- it wasn't moved past, because there's ''nowhere to go''. Even when Rogue eventually gains control of her powers, something else has to be manufactured to keep them apart, like Gambit's extremely tiresome ''[[DarkAndTroubledPast secret dark mysterious past.]]'' It's rooted in an interesting way to underscore the [[BlessedWithSuck traditional Marvel Comics downside]] of being fantastically pretty and having amazing super-powers, but it's also the sort of thing that, once established, gets real old ''real'' quick."''

This was OLD, and I mean OLD, like Horatio Alger going back in time old, in season two...This one is like if a bird fell down in front of them and Clark said, 'Uh, that's a bad omen. We're so over. [[IHaveToIronMyDog I'm off to put up some tarps.]] YOINK!" And then the [[WesternAnimation/WileECoyoteandtheRoadRunner Wile E Coyote]] tappity tappity feet and he's off. BEEP BEEP!\\\
So IT'S OVER. FOREVER. AND EVER AND EVER. Clark and Lana will NEVER EVER EVER be together again. It's over this time. Really! ...If it's true, I openly concede that this was [[AndThereWasMuchRejoicing the best episode of the series ever]], because it saved the series. But you and I both know it's not, so it holds no drama, no hope, no character, nothing."''
