Storyboard Text

  • Abigail Williams
  • I have something better than hope, I think! (p. 469, line 542)
  • Abby, I never give you hope to wait for me. (p. 469, line 539
  • Reverend Parris
  • Abigail, I have fought here three long years to bend these stiff-necked people to me, and now, just now when some good respect is rising for me in the parish, you compromise my very character. I have given you a home, child, I have put clothes upon your back- now give me upright answer. Your name in the town- it is entirely white, is it not? (p. 464, line 158)
  • Tituba
  • No, no, sir, I don't truck with no Devil. (p. 482, line 1,193)
  • In this example, Abigail is talking to John Proctor and she is flirting with him. John and Abigail had an affair while she was working for John and Elizabeth Proctor. It appeared that Abigail was trying to persuade John to leave Elizabeth.
  • Abigail Williams
  • (quavering, as she sits). I would never hurt Betty. I love her dearly. (p. 462, line 97)
  • In this example, Parris is very upset with Abigail because she refuses to tell him the truth about what happened in the woods and why Betty won't wake up. It took three years for people to respect Parris and if word gets out about Witchcraft as his house they will lose the respect. It appeared that John is mor worried about his reputation than his daughter.
  • Reverend Parris
  • And what shall I say to them? That my daughter and my niece I discovered dancing like heathen in the forest? (p. 462, line 80)
  • In this example, Tituba is talking to Hale and she is holding up her guard. Tituba is scared that she will be hanged for doing Witchcraft. It appeared that when people need something evil done they go to Tituba for help.
  • Tituba
  • (terrified, falls to her knees). No, no, don't hang Tituba! I tell him I don't desire to work for him, sir. (p. 483, line 1,232)
  • In this example, Abigail is scared that she is going to get in trouble. Abigail is getting really scared because she was practicing Witchcraft and her uncle keeps trying to get her to tell him the truth about what happened. It appeared that Abigail was putting up an act to cover herself.
  • In this example, Parris is getting very irritated with the whole situation. Parris is really pressing Abigail to tell him what they were actually doing in the woods and the more she lies to him the more irritated he is becoming. It appears that Parris just wants the truth so he can make a lie out of it and keep is reputation good.
  • In this example, Tituba is absolutely terrified for her life. She is begging them to not kill her so she starts to tell the truth. It appeared that Tituba just wanted to live and she would do anything even tell the truth so she could live.
