The Handmaid's Tale Season 2 Episode 11: "Holly" Quotes

Serena Joy: Fred! Maybe they weren't here? Well, they were. Now they've run off together thanks to you!
Fred: There must be some other explanation.
Serena Joy: Like what?
Fred: Nick wouldn't be disloyal. I let Offred see her daughter. She would have been grateful.
Serena Joy: How could you be so stupid? They hate you! She's always hated you. She keeps running away from you!
Fred: Me?! If you'd shown that girl one ounce of kindness, she would never have left!
Serena Joy: Kindness? You raped her yesterday.
Fred: That was YOUR idea! I did this to fix your mess.
Serena Joy: You sent her out here with the father of her baby to see her daughter. What did you think was going to happen? That she was going to go home and thank you? You are such a fucking idiot.
Fred: Fuck. When did you become such a fucking bitch?!

Fred: Yeah, maybe they'll hang us side by side. Just my fuckin' luck.

I keep going with this limping and mutilated story because I want you to hear it, as I will hear yours too, if I ever get the chance, if I meet you too or if you escape in the future or in heaven. By telling you anything at all, I'm believing in you. I'm believing you into being. By telling you this story, I'm willing you into existence. I tell, therefore you are.June
