Episode Quotes

Lex Luthor: [in disguise] You know, I have something for you. Information about Lex Luthor and the woman who stole his body.
Lois Lane: Who are you?
Lex Luthor: Do you know the story of the phoenix?
Lois Lane: Yes. A sacred bird, reborn. Rising from its own ashes.
Lex Luthor: That's right. When I was a little boy my mother told me that story. And I-I always liked the part where he... came back from the dead.

Lex Luthor: It's good to see you again, Lois. Did you think I wouldn't come back for you? Yes, look at me. I've lost everything: my fortune, my reputation. Everything but my feeling for you. We must take the miracle of my resurrection as a sign. As a sign that even death can't keep us apart.
Lois Lane: How is this-?
Lex Luthor: No, don't question a miracle. We're together again. That's all that matters.
Rollie Vale: In case you hadn't noticed, I'm in prison. What are you gonna do? Charge me with being rude?
Clark Kent: [seeing Lois attempting to clean up a spill] What happened?
Lois Lane: Oh, I had a muscle - a mishap. I had a mishap.

Trivia

  • This is the first time John Shea appears with the traditional bald head for Lex Luthor. When he was a series regular, Shea was allowed to keep his hair, as his movie star looks were kept to be more of a suitor for Lois Lane. His baldness is explained as a side effect from his resurrection.
  • The title refers to a mythical bird with colorful plumage that lives for 500 to 1,000 years. At the end of it's life, the phoenix builds a nest of twigs which ignites consuming both the bird and the nest and a new phoenix arises from the ashes.
