: Goodbye, my son. Our hopes and dreams travel with you. Lara Lor-Van
: He will be an outcast. They'll kill him. Jor-El
: How? He'll be a god to them.
[Lara looks out solemnly over the exploding landscape of Krypton
] Lara Lor-Van
: Make a better world than ours, Kal.
: I can't do it... I thought I could, but... Jor-El
: Lara, Krypton is doomed. This is the only chance of safety he has.
: Your son, Lara, where have you sent him? Lara Lor-Van
: His name is Kal, son of El. And he is forever beyond your reach.
: Kara? Kara
: Hi, Aunt Lara. Lara
: You followed me? Kara
: Well... with the speed we have on this planet it wasn't hard.
: Visiting me at home is one thing Kara, but sneaking through the last remaining portal to follow me here was far too dangerous! Kara
: I had to get out of Kandor. The war is been getting worst and I can hear the mines being bombed day and night. Lara
: Does Zor-El know you're here? Kara
: You know my father never let me out of Kandor alone, but he's been spending so much time in the lab, that it's easy to sneak away.
: Why are you here? Lara
: I... I wanted to see where my son may grow up. Kara
: What? But you don't have... Wait, you're pregnant? I'm so happy for you I know how much you and Jor-El wanted this! Lara
: He's our miracle baby. Kara
: I don't understand, why would he grow up here? Lara
: Kara... Krypton may never see the end of this war. Jor-El's BrainInteractiveConstruct may very well save us, but I won't risk my son's life on that chance. Kara
: Then I'll be there and I'll protect him. Lara
: As much as this pains me, it may be my only choice. I can't let the destiny of my child be dictated by the fate of our planet. Kara
: And aren't you worried about your son growing up with humans? When they're so... primitive. Lara
: Jor-El visited Earth many years ago and he chose this family, because he was impressed by their capacity of love. Kara
: If it's more impressive then the way they live... Lara
: It's one of many structures Kara, it's not the residence. Come, let me show you.
: What if we get caught, Lara? Are this people here right now? Lara
: No, they're attending a spiritual celebration called Church. It's one of their traditions. Kara
: It sure smells a lot better in here. Lara
: I believe they're cooking..."Sunday Roast". It is so peaceful here compared to Krypton. It's a true home. Kara
: I don't know... It's kinda... small and cleathered.
[Kara lifts an object
: Be careful Kara, we must leave no trace of our visit. I don't wanna influence them in any way. They're destined to raise my child, it's important they feel secure. Kara
: Have you given your baby a name yet? Lara
: No. With everything happening on Krypton Jor-El and I have yet to discuss one. Kara
: He'll be so far from home... Our Sun will be nothing but a distant star... Maybe you could name him Kal-El. That way when he looks at the sky, he can think of us. Lara
: Kal-El... Oh, that's a beautiful name.
: Jor-El? Is that you? Clark Kent
: I'm Kal-El. Lara
: Kal-El... My son, my beautiful boy. You're a man now.
: [to Lana
] You're worried I'll discover the darkness you're concealing. Don't let it overpower the goodness. You must fight it.
[as Jor-El is preparing to send his son to Earth before the destruction of Krypton, Lara enters the room with the infant, Kal-El
: Have you finished? Jor-El
: Nearly. It's the only answer, Lara. If he remains here with us... he will die as surely as we will. Lara
: But why Earth, Jor-El? They're primitives, thousands of years behind us. Jor-El
: He will need that advantage to survive. Their atmosphere will... sustain him.
[He looks at his son and walks over to the area where the ship that will carry Kal-El lies. There are information crystals placed in slots on the edges
: He will defy their gravity. Jor-El
: He will look like one of them. Lara
: He won't *be* one of them. Jor-El
: No. His dense molecular structure will make him strong. Lara
: He'll be odd. Different. Jor-El
: He'll be fast. Virtually invulnerable. Lara
: Isolated. Alone. Jor-El
: He will not be alone.
[He holds up a clear crystal and takes a long look at it
: He will never be alone.
[He places it in one of the slots along with the other crystals in the ship
: Did everything go all right out there? Jor-El
: Oh yeah, I encountered a very nasty shoggot. All in all, I prefer your arms.
: If you intend to live your life with a mortal, you must live *as* a mortal.
: My son, I only had the joy for knowing you a few weeks. I wish I could be with you always to guide you and protect you. Jor-El
: We don't have much time. Lara
: My dearest Kal-El, our love will always be with you. I can already see you carry within your father's independent spirit. Jor-El
: But more importantly, your mother's never-ending bravery and her compassionate heart. Lara
: Your father tells me the new world you're journeying to, Earth, is full of complicated beings capable of great emotion. My wish is for you to live a full and wonderful life, but I need you to know, you were born of a great love. And your brilliant father was devised a way for you to carry on that love without us. Jor-El
: The ship I designed to carry you to your destiny can only hold one Kryptonian - one who has so much potential - so unlike your father. Lara
: No. Jor-El
: Your mother and I cannot come with you. To do so would burden your innocent soul with our frailties and failures. But you have within you the best of both of us. And I am sending you all of my knowledge and none of my ego or regrets. They will die with me here on Krypton. Whatever trials I put you through, I will never lose faith in you. Lara
: [whispers to Jor-El
] Quickly, before it's too late. We may not have been able to save our planet... Jor-El
: But we are confident you will become Earth's greatest savior. And never doubt that, just as you're a part of us, we will always be a part of you. Farewell, my son.
: I've only been working on it two weeks. Jor-El
: It iddn't take you that long to get me a proposed marriage. Lara
: You were less of a problem.
