Janine: I know I could probably keep the kid. I know that, but I already have a son, and it’s just me. I have a job, and it’s just barely enough for the both of us. And I was thinking about enrolling in school next semester because he’s finally old enough.
Doctor: Hang on. Do you want to be pregnant right now?
Janine: No.
Doctor: And you’re comfortable with your choice? You’re making this decision yourself?
Janine: Yes.
Doctor: Then the rest is none of my business. I am required by law to tell you that an abortion procedure can lead to an increased risk of breast cancer, infertility, and depression. And not by law, I’m also gonna say that’s a bunch of crap.

June: I know. Me too. We’re OK. We’re gonna be OK.
Janine: How is this OK?
June: ‘Cause we’re going to get there, and we’re gonna find them. We’re gonna find Mayday, and they’re going to help us.
Janine: You keep saying that, but you don’t know. Do you have some secret brilliant plan? What is it? What’s the plan?
June: Look, Janine, we’re OK.
Janine: I’m not a mushroom. I’m not.
June: OK…
Janine: You can’t keep me in the dark and feed me lies and shit and expect me to be OK with it.
June: I don’t do that.
Janine: Yes, you do. You don’t know where we’re going. You don’t know if we’re going to be OK.
June: I’m keeping us alive.
Janine: They were the nicest, Alma and Brianna. Maybe that’s why.

Serena: It’s a boy. Can you imagine? Toy trucks and scraped knees, catching frogs.
Rita: Praised be.
Serena: I have missed you. My lovely, Rita. You were always such a blessing.
Rita: Thank you.
Serena: No, that’s for you. So you can look at it whenever you want. It’s nice to have a friend. Would you pray with me?
Rita: Yes.
