‘Breeders’ Mom ‘Hates God,’ Curses Out Family in Church

March 30th, 2020 11:58 PM

On FX’s Breeders, foul-mouthed parents Paul (Martin Freeman) and Ally (Daisy Haggard) are no fans of God or religion. Yet, while Ally prepares to scatter her dead father’s ashes, she still goes into an empty church, even though Paul acknowledges to her friend, Darren (Patrick Baladi), that she “hates God.”

Ally demonstrates just how much contempt she has for places of worship, and her family, when she curses them out for interrupting her moment alone:



Luke: Dad! Who's Mummy talking to?

Paul: Shh, shh, shh.

Darren: Sorry, they wouldn't listen to me.

Paul: Be quiet, please. Sorry.

Ally: Thanks for coming back to see me, though. Those last few weeks I, um-- I really felt a shift in our relationship. But it's time. It's time now to let you go.

Then it all goes south. 

Ava: I'm bored!

Paul: Hey, hey. That's enough. [Phone ringing] Oh Christ! Mate, put it on vibrate.

Darren: Sorry. -

Paul: Please.

Darren: Sorry. Sorry.

Ava: Can all of you shut the fuck up? Ava, shut up! Luke, shut the fuck up! I am trying to talk to my fucking dead fucking dad, but none of you will shut the-- [phone ringing] Darren, fuck off with your fucking phone! And your fucking, fucking stupid fucking wellies! And your useless fucking ba-- [horn blaring]

Well, viewers can see just how clearly Ally “hates God.”

Now try and imagine this scene taking place in a mosque.
