RORY: I am fine.
LORELAI: But if you could see the look on your face.
RORY: It’s the same look you had on your face when you broke up with Max. Did wallowing help you get over him?
LORELAI: I’m not saying wallowing will help you get over Dean. It’s part of the process. It’s the mourning period. It’s a step, an important step. The only thing that will get you over somebody is time.
RORY: How much time did it take you to get over Max?
It was just yesterday afternoon from their perspective that Lorelai told Rory that she still missed Max, so Rory should already know that she isn’t over him. Maybe she is being disingenuous, although it’s strange that Lorelai doesn’t recall their conversation either.
