"Honestly that's what I expected the plan to be? Either that,  I was going to become your sister, but people would question that."

Permalink

"We don't look that much alike."

Permalink

"Yeah,  there's no way that won't make it suspicious.  We'll just have to pretend to be a different kind of suspicious than we actually are."

Permalink

"It's also good because sketchy motels don't track people the way that actual hotels do. --Sometimes I sleep in the Jeep but that's also suspicious in its own way."

Permalink

"It does make us look like we couldn't even get a motel-- which, like,  there are some non suspicious reasons,  but still."

Permalink

"You want to look homeless if you do that, which isn't that hard."

Permalink

"If it comes to that."

Permalink

"...do you need abortion pills. Or do you want the shot. In case we get caught."

Permalink

There's a brief impulse to politely demure. 'Oh no,  I simply couldn't take this birth control cup of tea.' But... why would she do that? "The shot would be good."

Permalink

"It's good for six months. Might cause headaches, depression, weight gain, or acne. Might cause you to stop having a period but a lot of people think that's an advantage. It won't make you permanently infertile or any of the other shit that Gilead says about birth control."

Permalink

"I will trade headaches for 6 months of not having to think about it." That's an incredibly good deal.

Permalink

"I also have the HIV shot but that's not really helpful unless you're planning to have sex with someone HIV-positive, it's mostly for queer men and sex workers and people who inject drugs. And fun drugs. Lots of weed and Ecstasy and LSD, if those are up your alley."

Permalink

The cup of tea thing is probably a better idea here.  "I wouldn't want to deprive you of your fun drugs."

Permalink

"They're not mine, I don't do drugs, except for a joint or a beer now and again."

Permalink

Ah, yes,  that very undruglike substance: weed. "I'll pass,  anyway."

Permalink

"Do you want to talk aboutit?"

Permalink

"I'm not against them, I just... don't want to own them in anyway till we're across the border? Even if it's just a plan to buy it once we're across?"

Permalink

"No, I mean-- the thing that you weren't allowed to talk about while you were in Gilead, because of the way that Gilead is, and you might want to disclose to a sympathetic stranger you're never going to see again once you're over the border, and that is possibly the reason you're escaping. Do you want to talk about it."

Permalink

Oh, right! "I am looking forward to being somewhere that will occasionally suffer a witch to live."

Permalink

"What kind of witch?"

Permalink

"The kind that once had a conversation with the Moon! If I could pretend that didn't happen, I could be a depressing little church girl with no life prospects, and I wouldn't be in this car."

Permalink

"What manner of thing does the moon have to say?"

Permalink

"'Good luck,  sister. '"

Permalink

"You know, I feel like I should have expected that."

Permalink

"Yeah,  she's not the chattiest." She smiles.
