I think my favorite Lois Lane moment is in Superman: TAS
's "A Little Piece of Home" by the late Hilary J. Bader. When Clark is exposed to a sliver of kryptonite Lois has, he feels faint and looks sickly, and before Lois leaves to pursue her story, she crisply, curtly instructs the waitress to bring him chicken soup and tea. Her manner is as tough and no-nonsense as ever, but she's instinctively taking care
of Clark, showing compassion through her deeds if not through her words and manner. And it's just so matter-of-fact and automatic, a throwaway moment that says something profound about her. S:TAS's Lois was very protective of Clark, and there's a charming irony in that.
