INT. DAILY PLANET CONFERENCE ROOM -- MORNING
LOIS, CLARK, and PERRY are spread out around the conference
table, discussing what to cover this day. Other NEWSPAPERS,
COFFEE CUPS, and the like litter the table. It's clear
they've been at this a while.
How about that expose on Medicare
I know. We've got a great human
interest piece. There's a group of
grandmothers that travel from school
...performing rap music to keep the
kids off drugs!
Perry is distinctly disappointed.
Rapping Grannies? This is the Daily
Planet, not the Weekly World News!
We are the newspaper of record in
Metropolis! This paper's journalistic
legacy stretch back nearly 200 years...

Did you see this?
Hand that over, son.
This woman didn't even know she was
pregnant, and then, all of a sudden,
she had a baby!
LOIS AND CLARK: "Strange Visitor" - 10/26/95 - ACT ONE 2
Happened out in California.
Incredible? That's impossible! How
can you not know if you're pregnant?
Now Lois, I've been in this business
a lot of years; I've seen a lot of
strange things. Hell, thanks to
Superman, I even believe a man can

Oh, really? A trip to California?
Cool! I'll pack my swimsuit!
You're going to fly us out there,
You got a better idea, Kent? I can
see it now. "Miracle Baby's Parents
Speak-- Daily Planet Exclusive by
Lois Lane and Clark Kent."
He glares menacingly at them.
At least, that's how it better read.

They got the jump. We've got to beat
them to the follow up. Understand?

you imagine? Being pregnant, and not
Well, I think I would feel a "super"
kick or two, if that's what you mean.
No... I mean... Well, it's just...
Lois is loving his discomfort.
Don't worry, big boy. We'll burn
that bridge when we come to it.
So, you mind if I fly out west alone?
You might say.
Oh, sure. You know, we've never really
talked about that. You don't fly
commercial very often, do you?
I'm glad to see that time in therapy
hasn't been an entire waste...
LOIS AND CLARK: "Strange Visitor" - 10/26/95 - ACT ONE 4
Hey! When used properly, COUNSELING
can be very helpful.
Let me ask you something. How come
