Lorelai says she doesn't have a tape measure, so she can't stay exactly ten feet away. Max tells her to imagine a really big basketball player between them. Lorelai tries to joke and get closer, but Max pulls a chair between them. He says that he was seeing someone in California. Lorelai says that she was also seeing people when he was in California. Max says that he would still be seeing this woman named Diane if he hadn't left California, and since he'd still be dating her if he was with her, he shouldn't be dating anyone now because it wouldn't have been possible if he had stayed. I know. Just go with it. The scene is almost over. Lorelai offers to give Max an aspirin once he starts slapping his head, but she only has a Tic Tac and then apologizes for tantalizing him with something he couldn't have. Like her hand in marriage. Max says he thought they were both going to ignore the kiss. Lorelai says they didn't have a deal. Max: "You had your shot. Okay? You had the ring and you said no." Lorelai says that Max already told her that it was right for him, too, that they didn't get married. Oh, don't you turn this around and make it Max's fault, Lorelai. You left him. Max asks what right now is. "It's us," Lorelai says. "Ta da!" Max says they need to stay apart. Lorelai says they had a whole country between them for a year. I do believe that's this show's cheesiest line ever. "That's like eleven thousand basketball players lying end to end, and yet here we are." No, I guess that's the cheesiest line. Max says he thought he was over Lorelai and that it would be safe to come back to Chilton, but he was wrong. He says they should stay far away from each other, and possibly never see each other ever again. Amen. Lorelai says she'll see him at the Chilton graduation. He says he'll sit behind a tree. She says she might run into him at the drugstore again. He says he'll order his drugs online. And also, that wasn't her normal drugstore. Lorelai keeps chasing him and he keeps running away and the whole thing is so pathetic and unbelievable that I honestly don't care anymore. Max tells her to leave him alone. She won't. They're panting, for some reason. She pouts and says, "Whatever you want." "This is what I want," he says. I want this scene to end. "When I walk out that door, it could very well be the last time we see each other," sayd Max. Here's hoping. "Okay," Lorelai says. "I'll abide by your wishes." They say goodbye to each other. Max leaves.
