The conversation turns to more serious matters as Max brings up the fact Lorelai is concerned about the appearance of them dating. He insists that he's the soul of discretion. As Lorelai continues to grill him, Max asks the waitress for hemlock or arsenic -- "something quick!" They discover they both like rap music and Italian food. There is more flirtatious banter. Lorelai starts to explain her relationship with her daughter, and how she would never do anything to hurt her, but a strange man sits down in the spare seat between the couple. Max insists that Rory's not a baby any longer. Lorelai doesn't want to hear that. He jokes about stunting her growth, blowing cigarette smoke on her, keeping her in the closet. The old man gives him the stink-eye and then leaves. Then Max gives Lorelai some cheesy "seize the day" for-love-comes-around-but-once-in-a-lifetime speech that she eats up. Blah dee blah, something in your gut, blah dee blah, you know it's right, blah dee blah, you've got to go after it, blah dee blah, his uncle never saw the girl again. Lorelai caves under the enormous sexual tension, gives Max her card, and suggests they have dinner. As he leaves, Max says, "Good-bye Lorelai Gilmore." Oh, even the love lives are paralleled on this show! Well, except for the fact that Lorelai and Max can actually have a conversation. Rory hasn't quite reached that stage yet.
