You are so fearless that you should only bear male children. We will cover the guards with blood to make it look like they did it right?
Nobody would believe otherwise because we will wail and cry so loudly when we get the news of Duncan's death!
I am convinced now and will give it my best effort. Go and continue to entertain Duncan like a good hostess and remember to keep a pleasant face even though there is evil in your heart.
We can't go through with the plan. I should be enjoying the honors that I have just earned not tossing them away so soon.
Macbeth looks admiringly at lady Macbeth
Were you drunk when we first spoke of this? Did you take a nap and wake up a coward? You don't love me. Are you going to be a coward or a man and take the crown?
Macbeth is now calm and resolved to commit the murder
Don't question my manhood. I will do what is proper for a man. If anyone does more he is not a man!
So you weren't a man when we first agreed? Actually it is then you were a man! And carrying out the deed will make you even more a man. You are weak. If I promised you to do something as bad as dashing out the brains of a baby I was nursing I would do it!
Lady Macbeth arrives to interrupt his brooding
What if we fail?
Fail? If you can muster up some courage we cannot fail! My plan is to get Duncan's guards so drunk that they will sleep like they are dead. That will leave the old man unguarded for us to do our worst and blame his death on the guards!
