The Truth Hurts
After his conversation with Chad, God begins to talk with Max, and
reveals the problem that Max really needs to work on.
God: That wasn't very smart, Max.
Max: What the?!
God: If you go on telling people
that you talked to me, then people are going to think you're crazy.
And if that happens, I won't be able to help you.
Max: Well, right now it looks like
I'm talking to myself. I doubt that's helping to convey the impression
God: Take out your cell phone.
Pretend you're talking into it.
Max: Why are you bothering me like
this? What did I ever do to you?
God: It's not what you do, Max.
It's what you don't do that has made me decide to help you. You
have love problems. You can't sustain anything more than a short,
shallow relationship. You're two dimensional, Max. You're incapable
of forming, let alone maintaining, a deep, meaningful, close relationship
with any member of the opposite sex. This is a problem.
Max: Jeeze, don't hold back on
God: I'm sorry, Max. Harsh as it
may seem, I have to give you a slap in the face to wake you up to
the gravity of this situation.
Max: I don't…What do you want me
God: I'll explain later. For now,
I think you'd better get back to work. Talk to you later.
