MAX: We’ve been having these very successful phone calls for a couple of weeks now.
LORELAI: Yes we have.
MAX: And I think that all the talking has done us a lot of good.
LORELAI: Yes it has.
MAX: So I was thinking that maybe this weekend instead of a phone call, we should have a date.
Lorelai and Max reunited more than four weeks ago, but perhaps they didn’t start talking on the phone straight away, or Max is giving a general estimate. Their first date is scheduled for five weeks after their reunion, so they didn’t rush into it.
