Patty: It's your painting. I was going through some
of my father's things and I found it.
You gave it to me when we were kids.

Lex: Well, I guess I thought I could romance you
with my ABC's. Early knowledge of the alphabet?

Patty:It's an insignia from when our parents would get together
with the Queens and the Teagues.

Lex: Really? I don't remember that.

Patty: That V (the one on the painting) was the symbol
for their astronomy club. You must have seen it once
and copied it.

I think you're correct.
I think it should be ABCs (without the apostrophe).

Thanks, Avangi!

Hi, little,
It's not really a possessive or a contraction here. It's like, "She makes her 7's funny." It's a plural. I'm never sure of the best way to do it. Emotion: smile
I think it's actually a fixed phrase.

(Longman)

1. [singular] BrE ABCs [plural]
AmE the letters of the English alphabet as taught to children
2. the ABC of sth BrE the ABCs of sth AmE
the basic facts about a particular subject
the ABCs of your computer

By the way, you're watching Smallville, aren't you Emotion: big smile

I mean it's a plural, but we should use the version suggested by the dictionary.
