[Timecode: 3 minutes, 39 seconds: Scene: Interior of Kent home, daytime. Martha Kent is baking baked goods such as muffins and cookies for sale. Jonathan Kent is paying bills and looking at the family's overly-tight budget for the month. Martha Kent brings a sample of her latest cookie creation to her husband to taste.]
Martha Kent: Open your mouth.
Jonathan Kent: Hey, that's perfect. All we have to do is come up with a snappy name like "Famous Amos." We'll make a fortune.
Clark Kent: Forget Mrs. Fields. You could be "Mrs. Kents."
Martha Kent: I like the sound of that.
Clark Kent: This is turning into a big-time operation.
Martha Kent: I've, uh, added two convenience stores and the cafeteria at the retirement center to my client list.
Clark Kent: That's great.
In this scene, Martha Kent's fledgeling baked goods home business is compared to two famous brands: "Famous Amos" (founded by Florida native Wally Amos in 1975) and "Mrs. Fields Cookies", founded Debbi Fields, a Mormon native of Utah. Although Martha Kent is here compared directly to Mrs. Fields, there is no indication that this comparision has any significance beyond the nature of the product sold by their respective businesses. Of course, unlike Debbi Fields and Wally Amos, the baked goods business founded by Martha Kent never grew to become a national brand. Martha's career path eventually led her away from making and selling baked goods.
