  • "Lechery, sir, it provokes and unprovokes. It provokes the desire, but it takes away the performance. Therefore much drink may be said to be an equivocator with lechery. (Scene 3)  The Porter uses sexual innuendos to describe what drinking "provokes" in men. 
  • Lady Macbeth: Help me hence, ho! Macduff: Look to the lady. (scene 3) Lady Macbeth pretends to faint as a diversion. Because she is a woman, everyone stops arguing and comes to her side to help her.
