  • My hands are of your color, but I shame a heart so white.

She also wants him to see how it does not have a big impact on her for now so he can relax. She is trying to be the strongest out of the both of them. 
  • Macbeth realizes that he cant continue to dwell on it. He must act as if nothing happen in order to continue to be "innocent". If not then the kingdom would find out and the consequence would be bigger. They must be at their best behavior and know how to hide their secret.
