Give me the daggers. The sleeping and the dead are but as pictures. 'Tis the eye of childhood that fears a painted devil. If he do bleed, I'll gild the faces of the grooms withal, for it must seem their guilt.
Whence is that knocking? How is 't with me when every noise appalls me? What hands are here! Ha, they pluck out mine eyes. Will all great Neptune's ocean wash this blood clean from my hand? No, this my hand will rather the multitudinous seas incarnadine, making the green one red.
MacBeth returns from killing the King, still carrying the bloody daggers in his hand. A scared MacBeth passes over the weapons to Lady Macbeth who claims Macbeth is cowardly and explains dead and sleeping people can't hurt you more than pictures.
My hands are of your colour, but I shame to wear a heart so white. I hear a knocking at the south entry. Retire we to our chamber. A little water clears us of this deed. How easy is it, then! Your constancy hath left you unattended.
Lady MacBeth carries the bloody daggers back to the chamber where the King lies. With the mindset of framing the servants, she goes to paint their faces with blood, making them seem guilty.
Hark, more knocking. Get on your nightgown, lest occasion call us and show us to be watchers. Be not lost so poorly in your thoughts.
MacBeth becomes paranoid and begins hearing knocking noises all around him. He can't believe the deed he has done and believes he will forever feel guilty.
To know my deed 'twere best not know myself. Wake Duncan with thy knocking. I would thou couldst.
Lady MacBeth explains that she is just as guilty as MacBeth but would be ashamed to feel as weak and scared as Macbeth is feeling. A knocking sounds in the distance.
More knocking echoes in the background. Lady MacBeth insists they leave so nobody knows they are awake. However, MacBeth is still stuck in a daze.
MacBeth states he would rather be unconscious than have to deal with the terrible deed he committed. MacBeth and Lady MacBeth leave the room.
