The world can only see a stainless man of steel wrapped in the stars and stripes, but the truth is that he’s as insecure as the rest of us underneath that thick, impenetrable skin. Most significant of all is his fear of being alone… - Lois Lane
Lois: “We’re not gonna call him Skippy” Clark: “Okay, Lois, what would you like to call him?” Lois: “Let’s see. He’s annoying, and I can’t seem to get within ten feet of him without getting sick… I think we should call him Clarkie”
SV/MOS Parallel Scene: What I love about both scenes so much is that Clark rarely cries, his heart needs to be completely broken for him to actually cry or be in pain. You can see in both scenes, when he sees Lois, he kind of tries to hide his pain, but Lois can see through it and she just runs to him and comforts [hugs] him. One of the few times you’d see Clark [Superman] cry, and she’s right there for him. He’s the man of steel, but he does have a heart.
