  • Lady Macduff is mad at her husband, as he has left her and her children in a seemingly loveless act. She makes a reference to the birds and how even a wren protects her young.
  • What had he done to make him fly the land?
  • You must have patience, madam.
  • Poor bird, thou'dst never fear the net nor lime
  • Lady Macduff calls her son vulnerable to attack, while her son responds by saying that weak people aren't the first targets. She also foreshadows Macduff's killing of the king, by calling him a traitor
  • Why should I mother? Poor birds are not set for.
  • What you egg?
  • He has killed me, mother!
  • When the murderer calls the son an egg, he describes how he is not only weak and fragile, but not an adult (fully developed).
