Text from the original screenplay taped by myself ;-)
Clark Kent / Superman
Sebastian Finn / Mr. Makeup
According to the police, Sebastian Finn wasn't
just moonlighting when he killed Winninger.
The police think he's been a successful
hitman for years. I guess he finally made his ability to disguise himself
as anyone pay off.
I can top that I just talked to the dean of
the Philosophy department at Metropolis University.
He used to be a member of the Elimont Commune.
He knew Winninger, Finn and Trevino way back
when. Apparently it was a regular Peyton Place.
Winninger and Trevino used to be together,
but than he dumped her.
Because Winninger felt she was selling out,
abandoning the ideals they all believed in.
Then, she took up with Finn. They eventually
split, but stayed in contact.
I can top that. Dr. Hubert, the man
no one can find. Well, I found him. He's flying in tonight.
He'll talk to us tomorrow.
That's great but, we still don't know the
connection between increased male potency, the rainforest and Barbara Trevino.
The police questioned her and she's got an
airtight alibi, of course. She was getting in her limo.
She claims she has no knowledge of any attempt
on my life.
It would be real nice if I could talk to her
Yeah, good luck on that one.
Ready to call it a day?
Not quite. I've got a little more work.
Clark, there's no need. Finn's in
jail. I'll be fine.
Yes! And don't be hanging around outside waiting
I don't plan to see you till tomorrow.
Okay. Good night.
Hi, Lois! Barbara Trevino here.
I missed you the other day after the press
No, I believe it was I who missed you.
Would you like to tell me what this is all
I think I'll tell you when I see you. And
that will be soon. Very soon.
(knock on the door)
This is a surprise.
How 'bout a smoothie? It'll only take a second.
I'm not thirsty.
Lois, what's wrong?
Don't take this the wrong way...
I guess -
I'd just feel better if I could...
...stay here tonight?
Clark, drop the Kevin-Costner-protecting-Whitney-Houston
bit. We're inside the Planet.
I think we're safe here.
I've put on extra security in the lobby.
Nobody gets in or out without proper I.D.
Excuse me for caring.
I love it that you care.
Hubert's waiting for you in Winninger's study.
Won't he meet us here?
Uh Uh. He's afraid to come out, with
what happened to Winninger and all.
I assume you're with me.
I assumed I would go alone.
It's still my story.
You are really high maintenance, you know
But I'm worth it.
During the time Vincent spent in the Amazon,
one of the discoveries he made was a rare plant which,
when correctly harvested and processed, increased
So his prowess with the ladies wasn't all
Better sex through science.
He also discovered vast mineral deposits beneath
areas of the rain forest that are currently protected by law.
How does Barbara Trevino fit into all this?
Barbara knew of Vincent's discoveries and
research, and tried to convince him they should be exploited for their
He turned her down cold.
Wait a minute! This Is the background sheet
on Trevino they handed out at the press conference. Here we go.
Barbara Trevino is, among other things, on
the of board directors of Hobbs Mining.
Extensive mining operations in protected areas
of the rain forest would constitute an ecological disaster.
Winninger know that. The world saw him
an a hedonist, but he was really a humanist.
The plant he discovered was just one of the
many potential treasures hidden deep in the rain forest,
waiting to be discovered for the eventual
good of all mankind. He devoted his life to preserving that resource.
Anything from Hobbs Mining?
No, they're being very closed mouthed. Ben
Bradlee used to call it 'non-denial' denials.
You going to be all right?
Sure, I've got my protector over there.
Well, you be careful.
I guess it would be foolish to ask if you're
ready to go.
I've just got...
...a little more work to do. I want you to
you won't leave before I get back.
Where are you going?
To look for Barbara Trevino.
What makes you think you can find a woman
everyone else is looking for
and no one can find?
I have my ways.
And you promise you won't leave!
You want it in blood?
But I also don't want you here alone.
I'll stick around.
I don't mind. Really.
Okay. - Mmmmh...
I'll be back to pick you up in a little while.
Jimmy, how about a cup of coffee?
Sure. I'd love one.
Oh. I'll be right back.
Oh, you scared me.
Are you looking for something?
I found it. Now, tell me where that notebook
I don't know what you're talking about.
I knew Winninger was about to expose my true
motivation in wanting to be appointed chairperson of the Rain Forest Consortium.
From there it would have bean easy to grant
Hobbs the exclusive strip mining licenses they needed to exploit the area.
I'm surprised to meet you here, Miss Trevino.
So, I called on our old friend Finn to eliminate
him. But, Finn left a loose and...
And the notebook. Where is it?
There's nothing in the notebook except Winninger's
processing formula for the male potency plant.
Then I guess I went to a lot of trouble for
no nothing. But, with the strip mining proceeding as we speak and
Cutting it kind of close there, aren't you,
Are you all right?
I am, but Hobbs Mining begins with clearing
the rain forest.
Big story, hu?
You must have been terrified.
It was a little scary.
You want to talk scary?
I covered the governor's wife's speech at
the museum volunteers' luncheon today. Her dress -- that was scary.
But you can tell me. You were scared,
Like I said, a little.
Why is it so important to you that I admit
how scared I was?
It just makes you more human.
Okay. I write as well as you do, I'm
more fun at parties. But you're the star here -- the chief's favorite.
In on all the action.
And when you get in trouble, look who's hanging
around to come to the rescue -- not only a cute guy,
but also a god with a cape...
Nonononono! You asked, I am answering. You've
got something the rest of us don't have, Lois.
So it would be nice if for once, just once,
you could admit that you have bad days, problems, and fears just like the
rest of us.
Cat? I was a lot scared.
Superman got there in time. All mining operations
have been suspended and the authorities are cleaning house at the Rain
I guess everything's back to normal.
Sorry I took so long. Anything happen while
I was gone?
Not a thing.
Not a thing..
Where are we going?
I thought you might walk me home.
I thought you didn't need a bodyguard?
Who said anything about a bodyguard?
