The Handmaid's Tale Season 3 Episode 6: "Household" Quotes
Serena: That's nice. The silence.
June: You could return the favor.
Serena: You know, let's just stop. Please. This is all gonna be over soon. You're gonna get to go back home, and we're gonna stay here. And you and I will finally be free of one another.
June: You will never be free of me. You will never be free of me until both of my children are safe.
Serena: That is my constant prayer for Nichole.
June: I trusted you. To let her have the best life possible. To do the right thing.
Serena: And I trusted you to stay with her.
June: I gave her the name of Nichole. I did that to honor you for getting her out. You will not let her go!
Serena: Because I love her!
June: This isn't love. You can't love! You don't know how! Serena, you built this whole world just so that you can have someone. But it didn't work. You're small. You're cruel. And you're empty. You will always be empty.
Serena: I should have put a ring in your mouth the day that we met.
June: I should have let you burn when I had the chance.
Nick: Hey. What?
June: The Swiss are gonna act as a neutral party for Nichole. I made a deal with them to keep her in Canada.
Nick: You made a deal with the Swiss?
June: I need you. I need your help.
June: Yes. I... They need information.
Nick: They don't give a shit about us.
June: Nick. Nick.
Nick: They're politicians.
June: I know.
Nick: They have their own agenda.
June: So do I.
Nick: You get in bed with the government and it's not so easy to get out.
June: This is your one chance. This is it. This is your chance to be a father to our daughter. How many of those do you think you're gonna get? Its tomorrow morning.
Nick: Okay. Okay.
June: Thank you.
June: Can I ask you, can I ask you a question, Aunt Lydia?
Aunt Lydia: What is it?
June: Do you want us all to be silenced?
Aunt Lydia: No. No, I don't. Ah, this trip has been tiring hasn't it?
Aunt Lydia: It'll be good to be home.
June: It will.
Aunt Lydia: When I get tired I still try to think of the good I can do in God's world. If I can help just one person, one soul, that's enough. I think of you, dear.
June: What did Nick do? Before he was a driver?
Serena: He served Gilead.
June: How did he serve Gilead? Tell me.
Serena: He was a soldier in the crusade. We wouldn't be here without him. All this time you spent together and he never mentioned anything.
June: Good morning, Mrs. Waterford.
Serena: Good morning.
June: Serena. I know you don't want this. Please talk to me.
Serena: We can talk if you like. But you have to understand that seeing her changed everything for me.
June: I know.
Serena: Then what is there to talk about?
June: Because seeing her changed you. It changed you, it didn't change this place. She deserves better. Our girl deserves better. And I know that you know that.
Serena: They seem happy here.
June: Have you seen their handmaid?
Nice girl like you in a place like this.Nick
