    The context of this quote is heartbreaking. Catherine has just told Fred that she is pregnant. All their illusions of “marital” bliss crash down and Fred responds that he feels trapped.

    “You always feel trapped biologically,” he says.

    To which Catherine “went away a long way without stirring or removing her hand,” saying, “always isn’t a pretty word.”
