Female voice: As I waited for the girls in Downtown, Gillette, I was feeling like an uptown gal and I couldn’t help but wonder, “Are women allowed to do anything anymore?”[Of John and Cecily walk in]
Of John: Under his eye.
Of Fred: Oh! Under his eye? What about under my eye? Look at these bags.
Cecily: Oh, stop it, Of Fred. You know it doesn’t matter what our faces look like,
Of Fred: As long as we’re fertile.[ladies laughing]
Cecily: Of John, how’s the new place?

Of Warren: Well, this is what I get for reading a newspaper.[ladies laughing]
Cecily: Of Warren, something really is different about you.
Of Fred: I know. It’s that new manolo bonnet.
Cecily: No. No, that’s not it. You lost weight?
Of Warren: I gave birth. Does that count?[ladies laughing] [Cut to the show intro]
Female voice: You’ll laugh. You’ll cry. You’ll say, “Oh my god, this so could be me and my friends. You know, with the way things are going.”[Cut back to the ladies]
Of John: Gals, guess what I did last night?
Of Fred: Are your rashan in silence and cried into your straw bed?
Of John: Yes. Classic me.
Of Warren: Well, I had sex with a married couple.
Of John: Ooh, so did I. Who would have guessed we’d be having three ways in our 30s?
Of Fred: Three way? How about a one way ticket out of here?[ladies laughing]

Of Warren: Oh! I hate to always talk about our guy problems. But my commanding officer Warren and I are having issues.
Of Fred: Of what? What’s wrong?
Of Warren: Argh! It’s his ex. His last handmaid hung herself and he’s just not over it.
Of Fred: So, you’re saying he’s ‘hung up’ on her?[Alex tases Of Fred]
Of Fred thinking: As I was getting tased, I was shocked at my lack of rights in this new world but stunned at how amazing I look in red.[Of Fred smiles as she gets tased.] [Cut to show outro]
