This storyboard does not have a description.
Lady Macbeth orders the servant to fetch the king.
Say to the king I would attend his leisure for a few words.
Madam, I will.
Aside: If you get what you want and you're still not happy, you've spent everything and gained nothing.
Naught's had, all's spent, where our desire is got without content. 'Tis safer to be that which we destroy than by destruction dwell in doubtful joy.
Lady Macbeth is concerned about Macbeth's emotional state due to killing the king.
How now, my lord! Why do you keep alone, Of sorriest fancies your companions making, Using those thoughts which should indeed have died With them they think on? Things without all remedy Should be without regard. What’s done is done.
... Better be with dead, whom we, to gain our peace, have sent to peace, than on the torture of the mind to lie in restless ecstasy.
Lady Macbeth suggests that Macbeth should relax.
Macbeth is frustrated.
Be innocent of the knowledge, dearest chuck, Till thou applaud the deed. Come, seeling night, Scarf up the tender eye of pitiful day And with thy bloody and invisible hand Cancel and tear to pieces that great bond Which keeps me pale. Light thickens, and the crow Makes wing to th' rooky wood. Good things of day begin to droop and drowse; Whiles night’s black agents to their preys do rouse. Thou marvel’st at my words: but hold thee still. Things bad begun make strong themselves by ill. So, prithee, go with me.
