Subject: Lois & Clark
Yesterday my local TV station ran a repeat of the "Lois & Clark" episode
where Lois nearly marries Lex Luthor (after he has purchased, then
destroyed the Daily Planet). In a limousine, Lex asks Lois how she
enjoyed the evening's performance of "Othello", then remarks he found
the black and white sets "quite ingenious". After Lex captures Superman
in a cage of Kryptonite, he remarks of Lois, (quoting roughly) "She's
beautiful, and therefore to be woo'd; She is a woman, therefore to be
won. I believe he attributed the quotation to Henry V, but no matter.
There were a few other references in this episode, but I'm afraid my
feeble brain has been dulled with too much Drew Carey and Canadian
figure skating to remember the rest.
