Mark: This morning a plane left Gilead and landed at Pearson. There were nine Marthas on board.
Fred: Apostates. Gilead is well rid of them, I’m sure.
Mark: There were also 86 children.
Serena: I’m sorry, did you say 86 children?
Mark: Yes. We don’t have much more information right now. All we know is they’re here in Toronto, and that they’re safe.
Serena: Their poor families.
Mark: They’re being reunited with their families as we speak.
Fred: This will start a war.
Mark: We’re planning to everything we can to avoid that, but right now our priority is the wellbeing of the children.
Fred: Then you’ll return them home as quickly as possible.
Mark: I’d like nothing better, but there homes are gone. You destroyed them.

The Handmaid's Tale Season 4 Episode 1 Quotes

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.

I used to think of my body as an instrument for the accomplishment of my will. I could use it run, pick things up, make things happen. There were limits, of course, but my body was nonetheless one with me. It obeyed my commands, mostly without complaint. Not anymore. Now there’s tending to be done. There’s homemade penicillin, mold scraped off rotten fruit, an old Martha recipe. There’s comfrey and marigold oil to make the skin heal faster. Almost bikini season. I almost died when we first got here, they said. Sepsis. Janine said I was talking to Hannah. I don’t remember. Pain makes your world very small. My world has been this room. Today I venture forth. My world can’t be small, not now, because the others need me to protect them. Gilead is out there. Gilead isn't afraid. It does not hurt or sleep. It keeps coming. It keeps searching for us, and they will keep coming forever and ever and ever. No more time for me to stay in bed.
