    It was originally "Kleenex," but later changed to the more generic (and boring) "Tissue" when the Kleenex people went on their trademark protection rampage back in (I think) the 80s.

    When I first read it, back in the 70s, it was still Kleenex.

    Add my name to the 'cheered when Lana died' list. They should've left her dead. Horrible episode.

    The first published version in "All the Myriad Ways" is definitely "Kleenex."

    The Niven approved version on the web is indeed "Kleenex."

    The alternate title seems to be "MoS, Wo Tissue Paper."

    was kind of hoping it wasnt the father, good character and bo duke fit the role...figure it would be though

    i was thinking that it would be nice if they just dusted off good ol' pete at the end of this and just iced him...maybe the last scene could have been everyone sitting around the kent dinner table having a good time and celebrating the victory and clark thinks man what was jor-el talking about, oh well....then they cut scene to whatever town pete got shipped off to and hes bagging groceries then just drops, end scene roll credits

    not that i didnt like pete but if someone had to go and it "couldn't" have been lana would have been nice to be someone that left the show HA

    Let's back up to that a second. To me, that looked more like a flight than a jump. Anyone else?

    "No tights, no flights", right?

    Definitely looked like a flight. Until the landing. They sort of made it look like a jump all along. Nice cover up. But since this is the story of Superman, I think they're modifying the "no tights, no flights" mantra to have only been for the high school years. Now that he's out of high school, they may progress the story a bit more.

    Looked like a flight, but could have been a jump. All he did was to go straight up the side of a cliff.

    Until he changes direction in midair, I'm willing to give the producers credit for being NTNF-compliant. :)

    Able to leap tall ice structures in a single bound.

    It looked like a lame jump to me considering how he arced the landing, no hover to a stop. He did a big jump to stop the nuke before so why not?

    It was most definitely a flight.

    And, as already pointed out, the very first indication that the Reset button was coming.

    I thought it was a flight too, until the landing.

    I think it could easily be argued that it was just a jump, unless it needs to be a flight for some reason.

    In my opinion, if Smallville is back next year, and I think it's doing pretty good ratings wise. And if they think it might go beyond next year, they should just go to Metropolis.

    That would give us some much better storyline possibilities.

    Chloe's working at the Planet. Lana's there. Lex will probably branch out, why not just do it. They can still do no flights, no tights, but at least advance us pass the standstill we've seen for 2 years.

    There's just no way they can have 22 or 44 more episodes in Smallville, AFTER Pa's dead, after Fortress of Solitude, after high school.

    Jonathan's death may be that impetus. Consider that it may be too expensive for Clark to go to college now. He needs to go to Metropolis to earn a living to send money back home to mom. Chloe and Lana are already there. Lois can move, too. Sounds great, story-wise.

    Clark probably thinks he's jumping but is really flying. He wouldn't really have a constant speed rising and falling in a jump.

    Yeah, I guess it makes sense for it to be something in between flying and jumping.

    Lol, almost everyone here hates Lana as much as me :D. See, there's a message here that Clark should get. Help Lana, people he loves WILL die. It was a great episode, until they hit the reset button.

    BTW, I've often wondered if everyone else hates Lana for the same reasons as I do.

    1. She's easily the most whiny creature on the planet.
    2. For whatever reason, EVERY guy in Smallville lusts after Lana like she's freakin'
    Venus! She's good looking but c'mon! Now that Lex is after her too I'm almost to
    the point of not watching the show anymore.
    3. She's the ultimate goody two shoes :p.

    If you do any kind of maneuver in midair then you're flying.

    If you come down at the same kind of trajectory that you went up, then you might be jumping.

    You can't jump up and forward?
