... and who, disguised as...


« on: February 09, 2003, 10:08:28 PM »

I was watching my copy of "The Big Freeze" and noticed something a bit odd.  For those of you who haven't seen it yet, this is the episode where the villain hires a scientist to find some way of neutralizing Superman's powers.  The scientist does this by freezing Superman to 2,000 degrees below zero, which turns Superman into a normal powered human by somehow freezing his powers.

At any rate, the scientist has a change of heart after the villain refuses to pay him the promised fee so he goes to the offices of 'The Daily Planet' in order to tell Superman how to cure the loss of his powers.

Superman isn't there, but the scientist instead tells Clark Kent, who is in Perry White's office along with Jimmy and Lois.  Clark promises that he will tell Superman the cure.  It turns out the cure for being frozen is to be exposed to a burning hot heat, like in a blast furnace.  There is some concern among the gathering that Superman might not survive being exposed to such an intense heat.  Perry and Lois don't think that Superman should take the risk.  Clark says that it's up to Superman to decide.

So he bolts out of the room to tell Superman about the cure.  Of course, he's actually running off to go jump into a blast furnace.

Once Kent has left the room, Jimmy turn to Lois and says, "Jeepers, maybe we'll never see him again."  (more proof that everyone is just playing along with Clark's whole secret-ID shtick) to which Lois responds, "Clark'll be right back, don't worry."

At this point, Jimmy had a come-back line, but it was cut off because TV Land faded out early for a commercial.  I know the chances are slim, but does anyone happen to know just what Jimmy said here?

Jimmy says, "I didn't mean Mr. Kent.  I meant Superman."
The episode happens to be on TV's Best Adventures of Superman Vol. 3 from Warner Home Video.   S!

Thanks for going to the trouble of tracking that down.  I appreciate it very much. Cool
