Right before the last big tournament game, LaFleur decides to quit, leaving his teammates stranded. He's drinking, fully wallowing in a self-pity party when he runs into Lance. Armstrong cannot believe Peter is quitting and quickly and casually lays a heap of guilt and shame on LaFleur's shoulders. "Well, I guess if a person never quit when the going got tough, they wouldn't have anything to regret for the rest of their life."
When you're in full self-pity mode and not showing up to a big game, the last person you want to run into is the man who beat cancer out of his testicles, lungs, abdomen, and brain before becoming a Tour de France hotshot. It's like whining about a scratch to the person who lost a finger. Nothing is abstract, no one is comparing apples to oranges. LaFleur is simply all-out shamed, and with every tick of Vaughn's so-slight facial expressions we can feel the weight of it. Check out the clip after the jump.
