She instinctively dislikes the blind obedience of the Orthodox women and their insistence that her skepticism towards misogynistic religious rules is something to be overcome, but also wonders if her skepticism is human weakness holding her back from supernatural truth.

Karla sternly asks her husband to leave, to his displeasure. In the hallway, Audrey surprises Karla by telling her that she does not have to stay with Mike if she is unhappy. Lenny's girlfriend Tanya obliviously tries to join the conversation as Audrey mocks her too.
