  • Has your husband commited adultery?
  • No.
  • Yes he has....
  • Giles is charging Thomas Putnam for telling his daughter to accuse people of witchcraft so he can get more land. He says he heard it from an honest man and Hathorne asks the name of the man. He wants Giles to name names which is symbolic of McCarthyism.
  • Mary, don't hurt me!
  • Abby, stop!!
  • Abby says that she has been almost murdered for finding out who has compacted with the Devil and this is verbal irony because she acts like she's innocent when she has done bad things herself like adultery and faking witchcraft.
  • You're the Devil's man
  • Elizabeth knows that John commited adultery but she is scared of accusing her own husband of cheating so she says that he hasn't commited adultery, but it's ironic because her lie actually harms him and makes it seem that John is a liar because he said his wife never lied and she just did.
  • Abby pretends to see a yellow bird which is symbolic of Mary's spirit.
  • Mary calls John the Devil's man and says he made her sign the Devil's book. Proctor is full of extreme wrath as Mary lies. Proctor is arrested for witchcraft and workng with the Devil.
