Clark investigating the grave of Emily Dinsmore "Accelerate".

Among those buried at the cemetery are:


Clark at his father's funeral "Reckoning".


Lana: Are you okay?
Clark: I'm hanging out in a graveyard. Does this strike you as okay behavior?
Lana: Hey. I'm here, too.
Clark: Good point. What's your story?
Lana: Can you keep a secret?
Clark: I'm the Fort Knox of secrets.
Lana: I... came out here to talk with my parents. You must think I'm pretty weird. You know, conversing with dead people.
Clark: No, I-I don't think you're weird, Lana. Do you remember them?
Lana: They died when I was 3.
Clark: I'm sorry.
Lana: It's not your fault, Clark. Come on. I'll introduce you. Mom, Dad -- this is Clark Kent. Say "hi".
Clark: Hi.
Lana: Yeah, he is kind of shy. How should I know? Mom wants to know if you're upset about a girl.
Clark: No.
Lana: Dad wants to know if you're upset about a guy.
Clark: No, no.
Lana: (laughs) He has a twisted sense of humor. Seriously, Clark... why are you out here?
Clark: Lana, you ever feel like your life was supposed to be something different?
Lana: Sometimes I dream I'm at school, waiting for Nell to pick me up, but she doesn't come, so my parents drive up. They're not dead. They're just really late. Then I get in their car and we drive back to my real life in Metropolis. That's usually when I wake up. But for a minute, I'm totally happy, until I realize I'm still alone.
Clark: What's that, Mrs. Lang? Yeah, I'll -- I'll tell her. Your mom wants you to know that you're never alone, that she's always looking over you, no matter what. What's that, Mr. Lang? Your dad thinks you're a shoo-in for homecoming queen.
Lana: They really say all that?
Clark: Oh, yeah. They're quite chatty once you get them started.
Lana: Thanks for walking me home.
Clark: Beats creeping around the woods.
Lana: You realize this is the longest conversation we've ever had? We should do it again.
Clark: Yeah, we should.
Season One, Pilot

Lana: (to Clark) That night, at the cemetery when I introduced you to my mom and dad, you told me that I would never be alone, that my mom would always be watching over me. We're in each other's hearts, Clark. I will always be with you... no matter what. I love you.
Clark: I love you.
