From "Smallville: Red (#2.4)"
You know, dad, the things that I did and I said, I really didn't mean them.
Clark, the red meteor rocks might have affected your personality, but... we gotta face it, those feelings all came from somewhere. And I know compared to Lex, we don't have a whole lot around here, but up until now I never really thought it bothered you.
Maybe it does. Sometimes. And then I remember what's really important, and none of that stuff matters. No matter how crazy I got, you two stood by me, and that's something all the money in the world can't buy.
