Serena Joy: I wish I could say the same for baby Angela. But, there is hope. God has blessed Gilead with one of the top neonatologists in the world.
Fred: Ohhh. That's excellent. How soon can he get here?
Serena Joy: He is a she, now serving as a Martha. If you gave her a temporary transfer for a day, she could examine Angela, give her opinion. No one has to know.
Fred: I'm sure our physicians are capable.
Serena Joy: [touches his leg] Fred...?
Fred: We cannot question the will of God.

The Handmaid's Tale Season 2 Episode 8 Quotes

June: Do you miss working?
Serena: It's a small sacrifice to be welcomed back into God's grace. [pause] I do truly detest knitting. To be frank.

We do our work in the evening. She writes; I read. This is the new normal, and an offense to God. In another life, maybe we could have been colleagues, but in this one, we're heretics. I was already on the naughty list -- an adulteress, a fallen woman as Aunt Lydia used to say. But this is new territory for Serena, I think. How does she feel about falling? She seems pretty fucking happy.
