Storyboard Text

  • JUDGE
  • LIAR!
  • Giles Corey acts as the Plaintiff when he accuses Thomas Putnam of accusing people only because he is reaching out for land. Also, just like Francis Nurse, they are both trying to convince Danforth that their wives are not guilty of witchcraft.
  • THIS IS THE WAY I AM TREATED?!!?
  • Proctor admits that he has not gone to church often and has plowed on Sunday once or twice. Hale defends Proctor and believes he can not be judged by this evidence. It is verbal irony when Danforth says that he "judges nothing" even though he is a judge.
  • Deposition
  • LET ELIZABETH BE FREE UNTIL THE BABY IS BORN.
  • There was an abundant amount of shock in the court when John Proctor brought his servant, Mary Warren to court, and she said that the girls that claim to see spirits are faking. Abigail was then questioned, and claimed that Mary Warren was lying.
  • ELIZABETH IS A WITCH, YOUR HONOR!
  • Abigail is questioned by judge Danforth if the spirits that she sees are only illusion. Another instance of verbal irony occurs when Abigail begins saying that she is being mistrusted and denied when she is a person that can not be trusted.
  • Elizabeth's pregnancy is a symbol of safety because she is free from the court for a year. Proctor attempts to give the judge a deposition signed by ninety-one people attesting to the good characters of Elizabeth, Martha Corey, and Rebecca Nurse.
  • The poppet that is still being mentioned in court is a symbol of Abigail's vengeance. She wants to make Elizabeth hang so that she can take her place and be with John.
