Hark! She speaks. I will set down what comes from her, to satisfy my remembrance the more strongly.
Out, damned spot, out, I say! One, Two. Why, then, ’tis time to do ’t. Hell is murky! Fie, my lord, fie, a soldier and afeard? What need we fear who knows it, when none can call our power to account?Yet who would have thought the old man to have had so much blood in him?
Do you mark that?
The Thane of Fife had a wife. Where is she now? What, will these hands ne'er be clean? No more o' that, my lord, no more o' that. You mar all with this starting.
Go to, go to. You have known what you should not.
She has spoke what she should not, I am sure of that. Heaven knows what she has known.
The doctor says that he will write down what she says so he can remember it better. Lady Macbeth speaks while rubbing her hands. She is demanding the spot to come off her hand and calls hell murky. She then speaks to a lord and says how it is nonsense that he is a soldier and yet afraid. She asks why they should be so scared when no one can find them guilty. She then questions why the old man had so much blood in him.
The doctor asks the gentlewoman if she heard that. Lady Macbeth continues talking and asks where the thane of Fife's wife is. She then asks if her hands will ever be clean, and says no more to the lord and that the lord will ruin everything if he is acting startled.
The two talk in the corner and the doctor holds onto the notes he took on what the queen has said. The doctor says to the gentlewoman that she has heard something she should not. The gentlewoman responds saying that Lady Macbeth has said something she should not and only heaven knows what she knows.
