Max&Liz picspam, eraser room scene from we're a family
(We see Liz waiting in the eraser room. Max comes in)
MAX: I got your note. What's wrong?
LIZ: Nothing. No. No, um...that's not true. Umm...I've just been thinking a lot lately, and...have you ever wanted to see Sweden?
LIZ: I mean or anywhere. Peru, Nigeria, New Zealand...
MAX: Sure. But the closest I'm gonna get right now is the granilith chamber. Why?
LIZ: Watching Alex this week...I just realized that...it's our right to see the world, to live our dreams...
MAX: Liz, that can't happen.
LIZ: Live life. Why?
MAX: Because it doesn't work that way for us. You know that.
LIZ: You and Isabel and Michael and Tess are...you guys are getting cheated on a lot of things, and it's not fair. None of it is.
(he takes her hand)
MAX: Liz, you...should get to see Sweden. We...I...hold you back.
LIZ: No, Max
MAX: Kyle was right.
LIZ: That's not true. .
MAX: Everyone we touch gets hurt in some way or another. 5 years from now, I don't want you to open your eyes and realize that...that you missed out. You're part of the group. You always will be. But you need to be allowed to...to grow.
LIZ: Why can't you come with me?
MAX: Because I can't.
But I'll be watching you, Liz Parker. Wherever you go...and I'll be here when you get back.
why this scene: I don't know if i can really find the words in order to explain why i love this scene so much (especially since english is not my mother language you know xD )
Max and Liz are soulmates not only because they're connected to each other into a way that transcended everything, they saved each other, they won even against death...
They're soulmates because they're friends and lovers too and they understand each other like no one. It's a combination of both things... we can say that they showed all the shades of what soulmates really are.. even the ones that you can find in real life too.
This doesn't mean that they're perfect people and they can't have their bad times (but even those moments were created by external things and influences that weren't really under their control) but soulmates are like that too. People that will understand and forgive each other. Someone who is always there, one way or another. A constant. You can fight, you can be hurt but one way or another those people will always find their way back to each other, back to *home*.
I love this scene for many reasons. Above all if you know what happened in the second season then you know what Max still believed/knew about her in that point. Max didn't know about FMax and he didn't know what *we* knew about Liz. He still believed that what he had saw in TEOTW and what she had told him in that episode was the truth. He was still very hurt because... well... the reason is obvious: he was still deeply in love with her and this is something that *nothing* could ever change (and i have to say that some people hate him for this reason too :P ) . Even when he didn't know the truth and he believed that Liz didn't love him anymore and she didn't want to be with him.. he still couldn't stop to love her and this also is what did hurt him the most when he couldn't be with her and this is also the reason of why she could hurt him so much and viceversa.
This scene always amaze me because i find amazing that he could say those things to her even after what had happened between them. Into a way he did understand her and why she didn't want to be with him anymore (and we all know that it wasn't even truth! but sadly he didn't :(). He wanted her to be happy no matter what. Max does really love her. In that moment he was rebuilding his friendship and closeness with her but at the same time he didn't want to hold her back from reaching her potential as a person, he didn't want to hold her back from growing up. He wanted her to realize her dreams, he wanted her to have the right to be a teenager and to live life. And he knew that he couldn't do the same thing, that he didn't have the right to be a normal teenager.... but he didn't even really care about himself because he just wanted *her* to have it. He could live those things through her... her happiness would be his, her dreams would be his dreams too. and when he said "and I'll be here when you get back" no other words are needed in order to understand what he was really telling her. and it was amazing... it's one of my fav quotes/scenes ever.
Liz on the other hand is so sweet... if only Max had know the truth. She didn't care about traveling itself. I think that in the scene Max and Liz didn't realize that they were the two sides of the same coin: they both wanted the same thing and they both were thinking about the other one more than their own self
Max wanted Liz to *live*, Liz wanted Max to live too. Max wanted to give her something that he couldn't give to her and Liz wanted to give him the same thing.
Liz could get normality.. she was never forced to give up about her dreams and her safety.. but the truth is that real love doesn't give you a choice. never. She could get those things but she wouldn't be happy because she wanted to live them *with Max*, she wanted him to live life too. Most likely even more than for herself. Because she loves him. Without the one you love dreams means nothing. Like those rich people who can get everything but not what they really need.
I think that this scene summarize what the second season really meant for Max and Liz.
In that moment they had to take two different paths, for a while they had to grow up separately as individual people (and they both knew it, and this is what makes the scene bittersweet) before growing up together as a couple, like they did later. And I think that the second season made them stronger and more mature.
Every season is a different stage of their relationship and IMO it's is a good example of the different stages of relationships in general especially they ones where people fell in love when they were very young. Love isn't simple. It can be the sweetest and most romantic thing of the world but it can also be pain and then finally understanding.
I guess, however, that in the end Max and Liz realized this dream to see the world, after all ;) and they did it as husband and wife.
Ok this was long xD sorry
eta: gah in the same episode i love their other scene too. They one called "guardian angel" in the dvds :D it's the scene where Max stayed at the crashdown (until he was the only one there xD) because he wanted to protect her from the guy who kidnapped Laurei <3 <3 God he is so sweet <3 another scene that amazed me too.
damn it's so hard to choose only one scene. so hard!
