Abby, we've got to tell. Witchery's a hangin' error, a hangin' like they done in Boston two year ago! We must tell the truth, Abby! You'll only be whipped for dancin', and the other things!
I judge nothing. I tell you straight, Mister - I have seen marvels in this court. I have seen people choked before my eyes by spirits; I have seen them stuck by pins and slated by daggers. I have until this moment not the slightest reason to suspect that the children may be deceiving me. Do you understand my meaning?
It is my third wife, sir; I never had no wife that be taken with books, and I thought to find the cause of it, d'y'see, but it were no witch i blamed her for. I have broke charity with the woman, I have broke charity with her.
Mary Warren is a maid to the Proctors, and was also one of the girls in the forest, while they were conjuring spirits. She is very shy and timid, and is known as a good girl in Salem. She is very nervous about the situation, as she wants to confess to dancing only, so the talks of witchcraft will end. She was accused of witchcraft by Abby, as Abby faked that she was being attacked by Mary's demonic spirit. And because of that, everyone put the blame on Mary for witchcraft.
Danforth is one of the two judges at the court in Salem. He is a very harsh and brunt man, and has no sympathy for you, no matter what the circumstances are. He has a reputation in Salem of being very harsh and almost unfair to the people he questions, as he does not always here all the evidence presented in a case. He is constantly accusing and questioning many citizens in Salem for witchcraft as he wants to get to the bottom of the case. And in a way, I feel he does not care about who he accuses, as long as he finds some suspicion and evidence to go along with his accusation, he will be satisfied.
Giles Corey is one of the older members in Salem, and is an avid farmer as he has 600 acres of land. He has a very good reputation in Salem, as he is a kind man and is a good christian, as he prays every night.

So Giles has to do everything he could to free his wife from these accusations. Giles Corey was also arrested for contempt of court as he would not give the names of people who signed his affidavit about there being no witchcraft in Salem. And he ultimately killed himself while he was in prison.
