Storyboard Text

  • Mama!!
  • Pray, calm yourselves. I have eleven children and I am twenty-six times agrandma, and I have seen them all through their silly seasons, and when it come onthem they will run the Devil bowlegged keeping up with their mischief.
  • Perhaps she is not hungered yet. Mr. Paris, I hope you are not decided to go in search of loose sprits. I‘ve heard the promise of that outside…
  • Will you look at my daughter, sir? She has tried to leap out the window; we discovered her this morning on the highroad, waving her arm as though she‘d fly.
  • All of a sudden, Betty screams "Mama." However, her mother is long dead. Alert, Parris, Putman, Mercy, and Rebecca Nurse rushes in the room.
  • We cannot look to superstition in this. The Devil is precise; the marks of his presence are definite as stone and we must look only for his proper signs and judge nothing beforehand
  • Tries to fly?
  • Francis Nurse, Rebecca Nurse's husband, a highly respected person joins them. Giles Corey, a farmer also joins them. Rebecca Nurse gently reassures Betty and Betty slowly quiets down.
  • Rebecca suggests that this unexpected incident from Betty and Ruth is all suffering from a child's fit.
  • I am not a witch!
  • Hale, an intellectual man enters the room holding a heavy load of religion books. Hale informs them that they cannot look into superstitions of the Devil. Everyone obeys him.
  • Hale places half the town on trial for witchcraft, having suspicion of some people practicing witchcraft. This is when Abigail begins to accuse John Proctor's wife because Proctor snubbed her.
  • In the court, while Mary Warren is being accused, the 3 girls accuse Mary Warren of bewitching them. They put on fake act that convinced the judges that Mary Warren is "bewitching them."
