Well, see, we were only pretending to be afflicted by witchcraft...
Proctor, are you attempting to undermine the court?
No sir! I would do no such thing!
But Proctor, didn't you rip up the warrant for Elizabeth's arrest?
However, Proctor, don't worry about Elizabeth's imminent prosecution. Since she claims to be pregnant she won't be hanged until after she gives birth!
Giles, you are under arrest for contempt of court. Now will someone go find Abigail?
Abigail and the girls arrive. They deny Mary’s testimony, as well as her explanation for the doll in the Proctor home. He continues to pressure them. They then all shiver and accuse Mary of bewitching them with a cold wind.
She did this to us!!!!
Abigail and the girls begin screaming. Mary begs them to stop, but all they do is repeat her words. The room erupts, and then Mary seems to be consumed by the hysteria of the other girls and begins to scream too. Proctor tries to touch her, but she jumps away and calls him a "devil man". His arrest is then ordered.
