Now look you, child, your punishment will come in its time. But if youtrafficked with spirits in the forest I must know it now, for surely my enemieswill, and they will ruin me with it.
You come five mile to see a silly girl fly? I know youbetter.
Give me a word, John. A soft word.
No, no, Abby. That's done with.
Put it out of mind, Abby.
Tituba, Abbigal and some other girls were out in the woods dancing. When Rev. Paaris caught them they accused them all of witch craft
Betty Paaris fainted and they couldn't wake her up. Rev. Paaris blamed Abby and accused her & Betty of witchcraft. When Betty woke up she accused Abby of drinking blood from a cup to kill Elizabeth Proctor .
Look at me! To your own knowledge,has John Proctor ever committed the crime of lechery? Answer my question! Is your husband a lecher!
I have known her, sir. I have known her
Abby was making advances at Dr. Procter, he was rejecting her. He knew their affair wasn't right so he tried to end it. And this only fueled Abby's animosity towards him and Elizabeth.
I have given you my soul; leave me my name!
Abby accused Mary Proctor of making a voodoo doll and sticking a needle in her stomach. So they went and search the Proctor's house and found a doll that looked like Abby with a needle in it.
John Proctor confessed to "knowing" Abby, basically admitting to being an adulterer. The judge called Elizabeth in the court to testify and Elizabeth lied thinking she was protecting John but she really incriminated him.
The judge gave John an ultimatum, confess to witchcraft and incriminate some ore people or be killed. He chose to be hung because he didn't want to live with the word witch lingering around his name.
