"John, you are not open with me. You saw her with a crowd, you said. Now you-"
"I'll plead my honesty no more, Elizabeth."
"Spare me! You forget nothin' and forgive nothin'. Learn charity, woman!"
Character's Own Actions- Loyal
"Elizabeth, tell the truth!"
"Look at me! To your knowledge, has John Proctor ever committed the crime of lechery? Answer my question! Is your husband a lecher!"
Character's Own Speech & Thoughts-Distressed
"John, it come to naught that I should forgive you, if you'll not forgive yourself. It is not my soul, John, it is yours. Only be sure of this, for I know it now: whatever you will do, it is a good man that does it."
Elizabeth feels the need to doubt everything John tells her because he cheated on her and broke the trust. Not only that, but Elizabeth doesn't think she is good enough for him. In turn, it caused her to doubt his word. Act 2
Narrator's Statement- Intimidated
"I think you're sad again. Are you?"
Even when her marriage with John was falling apart, Elizabeth still decided to lie to spare John from the backlash he would've received because he cheated on his wife. She loved him enough to lie to protect his name, because he's all she really has. Act 3
Other Character's Reaction to the Character - Misunderstood
"Abigail, is there any other cause than you have told me, for your being discharged from Goody Proctor's service?"
Elizabeth was fed up with the way that John was acting when he was trying to decide to confess or not. She did not believe that she was good enough to help him decide, so she let him make his own decision. Act 4
Despite there being an obvious problem, Elizabeth doesn't seem to bring it up until John does. She seems like the type to try to avoid all conflict until it's necessary,especially when it comes to John, because she doesn't want him to realize that he can do better without her; She just doesn't want to be rejected. Act 2
"Her back is turned to him. He turns to her and watches her. A sense of their separation rises."
Abigail hates Elizabeth for the most obvious of reasons: she is John's wife, but Abigail wants that titles. Because of this,she will take any chance she can to trash Goody Proctor's name, that's including something small like Abigail no longer working for the Proctors. Act 1
"She hates me, uncle, she must, for I would not be her slave. It's a bitter woman, a lying, cold, sniveling woman, and I will not work for such a woman!"
Elizabeth was forced to watch her husband die, at the end of the Crucible, so obviously a lot has changed since the beginning. She had to have been traumatized when seeing it, but she understood why, also. He wanted to preserve the family name and she accepted that. Act 4
