I've never heard of anyone being let go like that, on good terms, without being given the option to simply resign. That's pretty fucked up if your boss fired you without giving you the option to leave on your own terms, yet still wants to maintain a good relationship with you.
First off, I'd ask the guy what he intends to say in response to why you only worked there for a month and a half. Because you can bet that they'll ask him if you put that job on your resume. If he doesn't give a good answer, I'd honestly just tell him thanks but no thanks for the reference and leave that job off your resume altogether.
