If anyone asks, we were dancing in the woods. If anyone says otherwise, I'll cut you!
I will cut off my hand before I touch you again!
I want him!
Abigail is telling the girls to lie about what they were doing in the woods because she knew that they would be tried for being witches. She uses whatever pride she has left to try to save them and threatened them.
Lies and Deceit
Abigail's lust for John was great that she turned around and confronted him, even when John was over her and moved on.
Confess to save him from death!
He has his goodness back, I will not.
When the girls are discovered in the woods, dancing around the fire and pot, they panic and chaos takes place.
I feel the devil's power in this room on me now!
It was lies and deceit that cause Elizabeth and several others to be arrested and charged of being a witch, even when they are executed for it.
I am here for the arrest of Elizabeth Proctor. She is charged by Abigail.
Elizabeth refuses to confess for John's sake, as he has done all he could honestly, he couldn't lie about his confession being confirmed by his signature. It was all he had left.
Abigail was being exposed before the court who she is. Therefore trying to get revenge on Proctor's points.
