We shall need hard study if it comes to tracking down the Old Boy. You cannot be Rebecca Nurse?
Well, you do come prepared!
I am, sir. Do you know me?
Her soul, her soul seems flown away. She sleeps and yet she walks . . .
It does not seem to help us today, Mr. Hale. We look to you to come to our house and save our child.
Will you look at my daughter, sir? She has tried to leap out the window; we discovered her this morning on the highroad, waving her arms as though she’d fly.
Tries to fly.
I never spoke on witches one way or the other. Will you come, Giles?
She cannot bear to hear the Lord’s name, Mr. Hale; that’s a sure sign of witchcraft afloat.
No—no, John, I think not. I have some few queer questions of my own to ask this fellow.
Aye, we’ll discuss it. Now mark me, if the Devil is in her you will witness some frightful wonders in this room, so please to keep your wits about you. Mr. Putnam, stand close in case she flies. Now, Betty, dear, will you sit up? Hmmm.
I’m not sayin’ my wife's touched the Devil, now, but I’d admire to know what books she reads and why she hides them. She’ll not answer me, y’ see.
I wish I knew.
Come, Mr. Hale, let’s get on. Sit you here.
In this scene, Mr. Hale just walked in carrying many books and he is learning what has happened throughout Salem.
Abigail, it may be your cousin is dying. Did you call the Devil last night?
In this scene, Rev. Parris is asking Mr. Hale to look at his daughter because she tried to fly, while Giles and Mr. Putnam believes there is witchcraft happening in Salem.
I knew it! Goody Osburn were midwife to me three times. I begged you, Thomas, did I not? I begged him not to call Osburn because I feared her. My babies always shriveled in her hands!
In this scene, Mr. Hale takes a look at Betty, while Rebecca Nurse leaves and Giles Corey asks about the book his wife is reading and why its stopping him from praying at night.
Glory to God! It is broken, they are free!
She speaks! She speaks!
I saw Goody Sibber with the Devil!
The marshal, I’ll call the marshal!
I saw George Jacobs with the Devil! I saw Goody Howe with the Devil!
In this scene, Abigail and Rev. Parris are explaining what they saw/happen last night in the woods. They are trying to come to an understanding of what truly happen to Betty.
Why, a very little frog jumped—
A frog, Abby!
In this scene, Tituba tells everything that happen that night, confesses herself of using witchcraft and tells them who put her up to it.
Aye, sir, and Goody Osburn.
In this scene, Betty wakes up and, with Abigail, starts to blame everybody they saw with the Devil.
