Lex Luthor:
What do you know about crystals?

Lois Lane:
They make great chandeliers.

Lex Luthor:
This crystal may seem unremarkable, but so is the seed of a redwood tree. It's how our mutual friend in tights made his arctic getaway spot. Cute, but a little small for my tastes.

Lois Lane:
You're building an island?

Lex Luthor:
You're not seeing the big picture here, Miss Lane. Let me enlarge it for you. [brings down another map] Not just an island. An entirely new continent. An extinct world, reborn, on our own.

Lois Lane:
Why?

Lex Luthor:
[confused] Land, Miss Lane. I mean- Kitty, what did my father used to say to me?

Kitty Kowalski:
You're losing your hair?

Lex Luthor:
No, before that.

Kitty Kowalski:
Get out?

Lex Luthor:
He said, "You can print money, manufacture diamonds and people are a dime a dozen, but people will always need land." It's the one thing we aren't making anymore.

Lois Lane:
But the United States...

Lex Luthor:
[brings down another map] Will be underwater. It's simple physics, Miss Lane. Two objects cannot occupy the same space at the same time.

Lois Lane:
And the rest of the world will just let you keep it? They'll...

Lex Luthor:
They'll... what? I'll have advanced alien technology. Thousands of years beyond what anyone can throw at me. Bring it on!

Lois Lane:
But millions of people will die.

Lex Luthor:
Billions! Once again the press underestimates me. Come on, let me hear you say it, just once, come on.

Lois Lane:
You're insane!

Lex Luthor:
No! [laughing] Not that, no, the other thing. I know it's just dangling off the tip of your tongue, let me hear it just once, please?

Lois Lane:
Superman will never-

Lex Luthor:
WROOOONNG!!!

[Lex shows Lois a piece of Kryptonite]

Lois Lane:
What is that?

Lex Luthor:
I think you know exactly what this is. Mind over muscle, Miss Lane. Mind over... [noticing Jason's looking at the Kryptonite] Who is that boy's father?

Lois Lane:
[swallowing] Richard.

[Luthor is about to speak when his henchman calls through the radio]

Thug:
Mr. Luthor, we're reaching the coordinates.

Lex Luthor:
[looking at Lois] Are you sure?

Thug:
[through the radio] Yes, sir.
