Listen, now, if they be questioning us; tell them we danced - I told them as much already
There is a murdering witch among us
They were murdered Mr. Parris! And mark this proof! Mark it!
If she is innocent! Why do you never wonder if Parris be innocent, or Abigail
Proctor, you dare not touch the warrant
Abigail were stabbed tonight; a needle were found stuck into her belly -
Conjures me? Why, no, sir, I am entirely myself, I think. Let you ask Susanna Walcott - she saw me sewin' in court. Ask Abby, Abby sat beside me when I made it
< The Poppet
What Signifies a needle?
A wind, a cold wind has come
Can you not pretend it?
Your Excellency, this is a trick to blind the court
She is cold your honor, touch her
How were you instructed in your life? Do you not know what that God damns all liars? Or is it now that you lie?
No, sir - I am with god now
Act I At first Abigail was saying they were all just dancing when Parris caught them but later on Abigail claims that tituba was conjuring up spirits but Abigail just wants to try and put a blame on others to get weight of her shoulders and not to be a suspect of any sort Mrs. Putnam claims betty was flying when she hears about witchery being brought up and is accusing someone of murdering all of her babies she had 7 and only has one now that is currently sick so thinks there is a Witch doing this Abigail threatens to anyone that says other than they were dancing Parris believes there is a murdering witch on their hands after communicating with Mrs. Putnam Shows the theme by them lying and just pointing fingers by accusing other people of doing things that they don't even have information about other than what they want to think about it
Act II Abigail sets up Mary Warren with the poppet to make it look like she is being witched but Mary was just making the doll to pass time while she stuck the sowing needle to hold it there on the doll but Abigail see's this and takes the chance to get her in trouble so she stabs herself in the stomach with a sowing needle and claims she is being witched. In this scene tho hale talks to marry warren about the poppet he spotted and that supposedly Abigail was stabbed with a needle in the stomach just like the poppet. Showing the theme by Abigail saving herself to get someone else into trouble and stabs herself with a needle to try and prove Marry Warren is witching her and that there is witchcraft involved when there really isn't.
Act III After Mary Warren says she is with god she goes on how the other girls were screaming and goes to believe it that there are spirits. All the girls are starting to act like there are spirits in the court Proctor says they are pretending Abigail openly threats john and then automatically acts like she sees spirits to save herself Hathorne Claims she is cold trying to get the judges attention' This scene is showing the theme where these girls lie and make up how they see spirits and feel weird to get themselves out of trouble
