A week later, after John Proctor came home, his wife Elizabeth urged him to tell Ezekiel Cheever, the constable, that Abigail admitted Betty's sickness had nothing to do with witchcraft. However, Proctor thought no one would believe him since they were alone in the room.
Nonsense! There are so many witnesses out there!
Abigail said this had nothing to do with witchcraft!
I don't believe any of it!
Mary, who had been at the courts gave Elizabeth a doll. As she was arguing with Proctor she told them that 39 women had been accused and Elizabeth was also mentioned at the court.
Hard proof! You cursed Abigail with this doll!
That is not my wife's. She has not had a doll since she was a little girl.
I made the doll...Abigail saw it.
John Hale came, telling the couple Rebecca Nurse was charged for killing Putnam's babies. Finding the Proctors suspicious. He questioned Proctor then asked him to state his commandments. Proctor could only remember 9 of the 10 and Elizabeth reminded him of the last one.
You MUST testify on the court for my wife!
No... No... Please...
Proctor told Hale about his conversation with Abigail but Hale did not believe him since many people had already admitted to partaking in witchcraft. Proctor argued that if people did not confess, they would be hanged.
Cheever arrived with a warrant to arrest Elizabeth because Abigail accused her of stabbing a needle in her belly using a puppet. Proctor tried to stop Cheever and Mary also admitted Abigail saw her making the puppet in the court. But Cheever still took Elizabeth away at last.
Proctor was furious and sad. He demanded Mary to go to court and testify against Abigail, but she sobbed that she could not.
