Aunt Lydia: Have you seen the new girls?
Aunt Ruth: By his hand, we’ll replace the lost children in no time with that crop.
Aunt Lydia: Yes, very special class. Well, I am eager to be of service again, fully recovered by his grace. Back in fighting shape, as they say.
Aunt Ruth: There is no need to rush. God has given you this respite to heal.
Aunt Lydia: Too much to be done.
Aunt Ruth: Lydia, the girls are not your concern anymore.
Aunt Lydia: The girls have always been my concern. I have served Gilead with everything I have.
Aunt Ruth: Praised be.
Aunt Lydia: Aunt Ruth, perhaps you could speak to the commanders about my reinstatement. Intercede on my behalf.
Aunt Ruth: Lydia, I admired your devotion when you were still active, but now, it is your time to rest.
Commander: Handmaids, sinful whores. More trouble than they’re worth.
Aunt Lydia: Yes, sir, more misled than sinful in this case.
Commander: We appreciate your insights.
Aunt Lydia: They were led astray by a gifted and amoral liar, a Delilah. When she is hanging on the wall, justice will be done. She has eluded your soldiers for 19 days. She’s out there planning who knows what kind of atrocities to visit upon our righteous nation. Pray gentlemen. Find her and bring her to me. And a frail woman will sleep better at night.
