Storyboard Text

  • Macbeth bids farewell to Banquo as he and his son leave the castle for a walk, but Banquo is still suspicious about King Duncan's death.
  • Afterwards, Macbeth hires murderers to kill Banquo and his son to ensure his seat on the throne.
  • “So is he mine; and in such bloody distance, That every minute of his being thrusts Against my near'st of life: and though I could With barefaced power sweep him from my sight And bid my will avouch it, yet I must not”
  • “We have scotch'd the snake, not kill'd it: She'll close and be herself, whilst our poor malice Remains in danger of her former tooth.”
  • Macbeth tells Lady Macbeth about his plan, but she thinks that he might be taking things to the extreme.
  • “Thou hast it now: king, Cawdor, Glamis, all, As the weird women promised, and, I fear, Thou play'dst most foully for't: yet it was said It should not stand in thy posterity, But that myself should be the root and father Of many kings.”
  • "O, treachery! Fly, good Fleance, fly, fly, fly! Thou mayst revenge. O slave!"
  • The murderers attack Banquo and Fleance in the forest, where Banquo dies and his son runs away.
  • After Macbeth learns at his banquet that Fleance has survived he sees Banquo's ghost haunting him. Later, Lady Macbeth makes the guests leave. 
  • "I pray you, speak not; he grows worse and worse;Question enrages him. At once, good night:Stand not upon the order of your going, But go at once.
  • "Thou canst not say I did it: never shake Thy gory locks at me!"
  • After the guests leave, Lady Macbeth challenges Macbeth's manhood again.
  • "What, quite unmann'd in folly?"
