Lois: Superman, the world is an unbelievably tough place, and it’s unfair and unjust and cynical. But you’ve shown me and everyone else in Metropolis that it doesn’t have to be that way. Not if we help one another however we can. It can be that simple, can’t it?
Superman: I think so. This can be a great planet, but making it great starts with each one of us.
Lois: Don’t look so shocked…It’s not the end of the world. Just because every shopping mall in the country starts a Christmas countdown in September doesn’t mean I’m obligated to play merry capitalist. I don’t want any presents this year. End of story.
Clark: Lois, you hang tinsel in the freezer. You get misty if you hear par-rump-a-pum-pum on elevator muzak—
Lois: I do NOT hang tinsel in the freezer…It’s garland. There’s a difference. Besides, you always go to too much trouble for my gift.
Clark: Trouble? I could fly to Japan, scoop up black pearls froom the ocean and wrap them in an origami swan before you finished your next sentence.
Lois: That’s my point. Your gifts are super-extravagant! Diamonds forged by hand…glass melted by heat vision—
Clark: No…not always.
Lois: Clark, before we were married, you gave me a gorgeous geode, a paper weight—Look me in the eye and say you picked it up at Dacy’s.
Clark: I picked it up at Dacy’s…The Dacy’s on the moon.
Action Comics #762
Action Comics, the Golden Age, when Clark Kent aggressively pursued Lois Lane.
Not like the DCnU where he doesn’t give her the time of day even though the new 52 Action Comics is supposed to be based on the Golden Age Clark/Superman. Yea, right.
From Action Comics v1 #93, Feb 1946, Christmas Round the World.
