Storyboard Text

  • Banquo acts suspiciously after Macbeth has taken over the thrown. Anyhow, Macbeth ignores this and invites him for a great feast held tonight in the castle.
  • "Thou hast it now, King, Cawdor, Glamis, all but  I fear thou played'st most foully for't."
  • "Tonight we hold a solemn supper, sir, And I'll request your presence.
  • Macbeth tells the murderers that he wants Banquo and his son Fleance killed because of his hatred towards them. After given clear instructions, the murderers state that they are in on the plan.
  • "Your spirits shine through you. And with him—To leave no rubs nor botches in the work— Fleance, his son, that keeps him company, whose absence is no less material to me; than is his father’s, must embrace the fate of that dark hour."
  • "We are resolved, my lord."
  • "What’s to be done?"
  • Lady Macbeth questions what Macbeth is planning to do against Banquo and Fleance. However, Macbeth hints that he has got a grusome plan and that she will applaud after she finds out.
  • "Avaunt, and quit my sight! Let the earth hide thee. Thy bones are marrowless, thy blood is cold. Thou hast no speculation in those eyes, which thou dost glare with!"
  • "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.
  • A third murderer has joined the other two. Banquo gets killed but his son Fleance manages to escape.
  • "We have lost best half of our affair."
  • "There’s but one down. The son is fled."
  • "Well, let’s away and say how much is done."
  • "O treachery! Fly, good Fleance, fly, fly, fly! Thou may ’st revenge —O slave!"
  • As Macbeth proceeds in seating, he sees Banquo's ghost which is not visible to the rest of the company and starts talking to him. Lady Macbeth tries to calm everybody down by saying this is a usual thing.
  • "Here is a place reserved, sir. May't please your highness, sit."
  • "Sweet remembrancer! Here had we now our country's honor roofed, were the graced person of our Banquo present. The table's full."
  • "Sit, worthy friends. My lord is often thus, And hath been from his youth. Pray you, keep seat."
  • "I pray you speak not; he grows worse and worse. Question enrages him. At once, good night. Stand not upon order of your going, but go at once."
  • Macbeth bursts into violent language ordering Banquo to leave. Lady Macbeth, therefore, orders everyone to leave the castle at once.
