The Handmaid's Tale Quotes

Ruthless. I remember thinking they are fucking ruthless. Where does it come from? This talent for ruthlessness. Seems so easy for them. For these men, for men like these. That show they won I suppose. It isn't about being right or having the people or God on your side. It isn't anything that grandiose. In the end, victory goes to the hardest heart. To the ruthless go the spoils. Fifty-two kids will be brought to the Lawrence house after sunset. We will move in darkness. We can hide in the dark at least. We have a chance at least. If there is actually a Martha network. If this all isn't a trap set by the eyes, I will get the children to the airport. The plane leaves at midnight. Because I am ruthless.

Commander Lawrence: I have made my decision.
June: It's not your decision. Men, fucking pathological. You are not in charge. I am. So go to your fucking office and find me a fucking map. Thank you.
Commander Lawrence: Still in my house! My house, young lady.
June: You really think this is still your house?
