June: He said no. Why?
Serena: Because that is his decision. The best we can do now is pray for baby Angela and for the parents.
June: [Sighs] God. I can't imagine how they feel. To face the loss of a child. Their former handmaid knows the baby is sick. She's freaking out.
Serena: You mean the handmaid that nearly killed her?
June: She was desperate. [tears in her eyes] She loves her. So much.
Serena: Then let her pray.
June: She already is. Do you think, Mrs. Waterford, that she could see the baby? I would be there. I would make sure that nothing happened.
Serena: Don't be stupid.
June: What if it's Janine's last chance?

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.
