Abigail, I cannot go before the congregation when I know you have not opened with me
Uncle, we did dance; let you tell them I confessed it - and I’ll bewhipped if I must be. But they’re speakin’ of witch-craft
I sawSarah Good with the Devil! I saw Goody Osburn with the Devil! I saw Bridget Bishopwith the Devil! I saw George Jacobs with the Devil! I saw Goody Howe with theDevil! I saw George Jacobs with the Devil! I saw Goody Howe with theDevil!
I am only wondering how I may prove what she told me, Elizabeth. Ifthe girl’s a saint now, I think it is not easy to prove she’s fraud, and the towngone so silly. She told it to me in a room alone - I have no proof for it.
The Deputy Governor promise hangin’ if they’ll not confess, John.The town’s gone wild, I think. She speak of Abigail, and I thought she were asaint, to hear her. Abigail brings the other girls into the court, and where she walks the crowd will part like the sea for Israel. And folks are brought before them, and ifthey scream and howl and fall to the floor - the person’s clapped in the jail for be witchin’ them.
Mr. Cheever has come to take Elizabeth to jail because she's been accused of witch craft
Elizabeth lies about John having an affair with Abigail, after John just finished saying she cannot tell a lie
He have his goodness now. God forbid I take it from him!
