The Neverending Chapter

 I'm writing a chapter that just doesn't want to end. I keep waiting for the characters to work out their problems and give me that sweet chapter-closing line/moment. I'm 4.5K in and I still can tease it onto the horizon.

What do you do when you have a chapter or a scene that just won't give you a break?

Have any advice or techniques you'd like to share?
