Awesome / Lois and Clark

  • 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.
  • From the episode "Tempus Fugitive" Tempus's "The Reason You Suck" Speech to Lois just because it's what every fan in the history of the franchise has been wanting to say for so long
    Lois: If you wanna kill Superman, I don't know why you're going to Smallville or 1966.
    Tempus: She doesn't know yet. Oh, this is good. This is really good. Um, Lois, did you know that, in the future, you're revered at the same level as Superman? Why there are books about you, statues, an interactive game. You're even a breakfast cereal.
    Lois: Really?
    Tempus: Yes. But, as much as everybody loves you, there is one question that keeps coming up: "How dumb was she?" Here, I'll show you what I mean. Look
    (puts glasses on)
    Tempus: I'm Clark Kent.
    [Takes glasses off]
    Tempus: No, I'm Superman!!!!
    [Puts glasses on]
    Tempus: Mild-mannered reporter.
    [Takes glasses off]
    Tempus: Superhero. Hello! Duh! Clark Kent is Superman. Ha, ha, ha. Well, that was worth the whole trip. To actually meet the most galactically stupid woman who ever lived.
