Storyboard Text

  • This scene is after Macbeth kills Duncan and is starting to have an internal conflict over whether it was right or wrong. "I go, and it is done; the bell invites me. Hear it not, Duncan; for it is a knell That summons thee to heaven or to hell" (Mac. 2.1.642-644).
  • I can't believe I killed him! What is that I hear? Oh no- I'm going to be cursed.
  • Macbeth comes back to Lady Macbeth and shows her that he killed Duncan. Lady Macbeth takes the dagger to plant on the bodyguards, while Macbeth has conflict over what he thinks he heard. "Give me the daggers: the sleeping and the dead Are but as pictures..." (Mac. 2.2.715-716)
  • Give me the dagger and I will go plant it on the bodyguards where you were supposed to leave it. Now wash your hands!
  • The deed is done, but my hands are covered in blood now. .
  • The conflict here is finding out who did it and still staying safe. Internally they are concerned for the King and for themselves. "What will you do? Let's not consort with them: To show an unfelt sorrow is an office Which the false man does easy. I'll to England" (Mac. 2.3.933-935).
  • I know we aren't safe, but shouldn't we stay to figure out what happened? And if we leave I am goingto England!
  • Who could have done this? We aren't safe here. Follow me to Ireland...
