Ludlow was harassing Chrissy, causing Clark Kent to intervene. He threw his beer over him and attempted to get physical, but Clark stood firm, convinced that he wasn't worth it. As Clark walked out, Ludlow threw a beer can at him as a "tip". That night as he went out to his truck, he found it destroyed and impaled with numerous logs he'd been carrying.
- The character of Ludlow is seemingly a homage to the character Rocky from the 1980 film Superman II, who is likewise an obnoxious truck driver who picks a fight with Clark Kent.
