Marry Warren" she'll kill me for sayin that! Abby'll charge lecher on you, Mr. Proctor!" Proctor" Good, we will slide together into our pit; you will tell the court what you know."
Proctor" I'll show you a great doin; on your arse one of these days. Now get home; my wife is waitin, with your work.
Abigail" Gah! I'd almost forgotten how strong you are, John Proctor!
This shows that John is willing to get the truth out of someone to set things wright regardless of what happens to the other person.
Abigail" Oh, I marvel how such a strong man may let such a sickly wife be-" Proctor" You speak nothin' of Elizabeth
this showed that Proctor is not only strict, but also cares for Elizabeth.
Proctor" Child-" Abigail" How dare you call me child! Proctor" Abby, I may think of you softly from time to time. But I will cut off my hand before I'll ever reach for you again. Wipe it out of mind. We never touched, Abby.
This shows that Proctor is a physically strong person.
This shows that Proctor is protective about his wife.
This shows how Proctor inadvertently got Abigail to have a grudge with his wife during the afair.
