All hail, Macbeth! Hail to you, thane of Cawdor!
Oh, and Banquo as well. You will not be king, but you will have kings.
All hail, Macbeth, that shalt be king hereafter!
We will proceed no further in this business, wife. I don't want to kill Duncan.
Macbeth has second thoughts about killing Duncan, but Lady Macbeth manipulates him into carrying out the deed.
Art thou afeard to be the same in thine own act and valors thou art in desire?
Banquo, how are you here? I killed you, and Duncan too!

Are you a man? What's wrong with you?

Out, damned spot! Out I say! Yet, here’s the smell of the blood still. All the perfumes of Arabia will not sweeten this little hand. Will my hands never be clean of Duncan's blood? Oh! Oh! Oh!
But Macduff, none of woman born can kill me! How is this possible?
Macduff and the English army storm the castle and kill Macbeth.
I was born a cesarean, so I can kill you Macbeth! And when you die, Malcolm will become king and cleanse Scotland of your tyranny.
