Storyboard Text

  • (3) "Here is a place reserv'd, sir."
  • (2) "The table's full."
  • (4) "Where?"
  • (1) "Grace us with your royal company."
  • (3) "What, my good lord?"
  • (6) "The fit is momentary. Feed, and regard him not."
  • (1) "Here, my good lord."
  • (4) "Thou canst not say that I did it."
  • (2) "Which of you have done this?"
  • (5) "Gentlemen, rise: his highness is not well."
  • (2) "When all's done, you look but on a stool!"
  • (4) "Why, what care I? If thou canst nod, speak too. If charnel-houses and our graves must send those that we bury back, our monuments shall be the maws of kites."
  • (1) "That dare look on that which might appal the devil."
  • (3) "Prithee, see there! Behold! Look! Lo! How say you?
  • The other guests don't see the ghost, or body, of Banquo at Macbeth's seat. Reminder, Lady Macbeth is getting fed up with Macbeth's crazy fits and starts to get mad later on.
  • (3) "With 20 mortal murders on their crowns, and push us from our stools: this is more strange than such a murder is."
  • (6) "Or duties, and the pledge."
  • (4) "My worth lord, your noble friends do lack you."
  • (2) "For shame!"
  • (1) "If I stand here, I saw him."
  • Text 3 is said by both Lennox (left) and Ross (right). The ghost of Banquo shakes his head after text 4.
  • (2) "Think of this, good peers, but as a thing of custom."
  • (1) "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!"
  • (3) "Approach thou like the rugged Russian bear, the arm'd rhinoceros, or the Hyrcan tiger; take any shape but that, and my firms nerves shall never tremble: or be alive again, and dare me to the desert with thy sword. Hence, horrible shadow! Unreal mockery, hence!"
  • At this point, Macbeth is freaking out so much that he no longer sees the other guests. Text 2 is said by Lady Macbeth but, Macbeth doesn't hear her and is talking over her. Macbeth is talking to the ghost of Banquo.
  • (6) "Good-night; and better health attend his majesty!"
  • (5) "I pray you, speak not; he grows worse and worse: question enrages him. At once, good-night.
  • (7) "A kind good-night to all."
  • (2) "You have displac'd the mirth, broke the good meeting, with most admir'd disorder."
  • (1) "Why, so; being gone, I am a man again. Pray you, sit still."
  • (4) "What sights, my lord?"
  • The ghost vanishes and Macbeth stops freaking out for a second. Lady Macbeth is very angry with Macbeth at this point. Text 6 is said by both Ross and Lennox.
  • (5) "Do not muse me , my most worthy friends, I have a strange infirmity, which is nothing to those that know me. Come, love and health to all; then I'll sit down."
  • The ghost of Banquo reappears and Macbeth really loses it this time. Text 2 is said my Lady Macbeth to the other guests. Macbeth is mad at the ghost of Banquo and is challenging him.
  • The ghost of Banquo vanishes again. Lady Macbeth is angry at Macbeth but happy and kind to everyone else. Macbeth is sad and confused, but that's not a face option.
  • (3) "When now I think you can behold such sights, and keep the natural ruby of your cheeks, when mine is blanch'd with fear."
