from the brief clip of that scene, you can tell by the body language that this is difficult for both father and son.
Like I've said before, I bet the "maybe" leads straight into Jonathan showing Clark the ship, telling him that he's not from Earth and that people fear what they don't understand. The context of the school bus save and the impact it has on Clark's safety is the perfect setup for all that, a discussion of all the dangers of going public. I'm so excited! Also, the dusk lighting is the same in the conversation by the truck outside and the scene in the barn from Comic-Con.
