...settled Kansas.

Are you all right, Clark?




Clark, come out of there.

Leave me alone.

Clark, I have called your mother.



I'm here.

Clark, honey, it's Mom.

Will you open the door?

- What's wrong with him?

- He's such a freak.


His parents won't even let him play

with other kids.

I know.


How can I help you if you won't let me in?

The world's too big, Mom.

Then make it small.

Just, um...

...focus on my voice.

Pretend ifs an island...

...out in the ocean.

Can you see it?

I see it.

Then swim towards it, honey.

What's wrong with me, Mom?



- Did you get everything I need?

- Yep.

Hold it, hold it.

Hey, ass-wipe.

What do you think? You see the game?

- Leave him alone, Pete.

-What are you, his girlfriend?

I wanna hear what he has to say.

Come on...



My son was there.

He was in the bus.

- He saw what Clark did.

- I know he did.

- I'm sure what he thought he saw was--

-Was an act of God, Jonathan.

This was providence.

I think you're blowing it out of proportion.

No, I'm not. Lana saw it too.

And the Fordham boy.

This isn't the first time...

...Clark's done something like this.

I just wanted to help.

I know you did, but we talked about this.


Right? We talked about this. You have...

Clark, you have to keep this side

of yourself a secret.

What was I supposed to do?

Just let them die?


There's more at stake here than just our lives,

Clark, or the lives of those around us.

When the world...

When the world finds out what you can do

it's gonna change everything. Our...

Our beliefs, our notions of...

...what it means to be human.


You saw how Pete's mom reacted, right?

She was scared, Clark.
