We're supposed to live a simple/honest life, but Reverend Parris desires golden candle sticks for his alter!
That is NOT true!
Oh, Mary, this is a black art to change your shape. No, I cannot, I cannot stop my mouth; It's God's work I do!
LIAR!!! Oh this is bad, very bad, I am NOT helping the Devil!
In her life, sir, she have never lied. There are them that cannot sing, or weep - my wife sir cannot LIE!!!
This is very ironic because John Proctor cheated on his wife with their maid and that is known as adultery in the eyes of the church. The commandment that John broke was the one that he couldn't remember to name.
its your lie man, tell it how ya want it!
This is ironic because, the puritans were simple and happy with what they had but Reverend Parris wanted the golden candle sticks instead of the pewter candle sticks to show wealth and this also resembles vanity which they frowned upon.
I have seen marvels in this court. i have seen people choked before my eyes by spirits; i have seen them stuck by pins and slashed by daggers!
Abigail is lying when she says that she's doing God's work; she's doing the devil's work by forcing the other girls to lie to everyone about the presence of witchcraft in the town.
We are given to understand that at one time you dismissed your servant, Abigail Williams...Why did you dismiss Abigail Williams?
She - dissatisfied me. And my husband
Proctor is speaking of his wife, Elizabeth, who, he claims, is incapable of lying, yet on the very next page, she lies to Danforth in saying that she fired Abby because she "dissatisfied" Proctor and her.
The fact that the audience already knows that all of these "marvels" have been made up by Abby, but Danforth doesn't know this, so he believes her.
This is ironic because the real reason Mrs.(Elizabeth)Proctor fired Abigail was because she found out that her husband Mr.(John)Proctor and Abigail Williams were "seeing" each other romantically for some time. Additionally, John said that his wife never lies, but here she does.
