  • As word starts to get around and the town starts talking about witchcraft, Abigail threatened all of the girls, "Let either of you breathe a word, or the edge of a word, about the other things, and I will come to you in the back of some terrible night and I will bring a pointy reckoning that will shudder you" (Miller 1244) 
  • Betty wakes suddeny from her mysterious sleep and screams that she wants her mama. When Abby tells her that her mother is dead, Betty yells, "I’ll fly to Mama" (Miller 1244), and attempts to jump out of the window. 
  • Abigail confronts John Proctor of his love for her. He tells her, "Abby, I may think of you softly from time to time. But I will cut off my hand before I’ll ever reach for you again. Wipe it out of mind. We never touched, Abby." (Miller 1246) 
  • Abigail accuses Tituba of conjuring spirits in the forest. Rev. Parris and Hale go to confront her and they whip her until she cries, "No, no, don't hang Tituba! I tell him I don't to work for him sir" (Miller 1260).
