ROSS Why don't you sit with us and grace us with your royal company?
Lennox Here's an empty seat,sir
Macbeth The table's full
Ross Gentleman, stand up. His highness is not well.
Lennox Here, my good lord. What's wrong, your highness.
Macbeth Which one of you did this?
Lady Macbeth Sit down, worthy friends. My husband is often like this, and he has been since he was a child. Please stay seated. This is just a brief fit. In a moment he'll be well again. Eat your dinner and pay no no attention to him.
Lady Macbeth Are you a man?
Macbeth You can't say I did it. Don't shake your bloody head at me.
Lady Macbeth Oh, that's nonsense! This is just another on of the hallucinations you always get when you're afraid. This is like that floating dagger you said was leading you toward Duncan. Why are you making these faces?
Macbeth Please, just look over there. Look! Look! See! What do you have to say? What do I care? If you can nod, then speak too.
Macbeth Yes, and a brave one.
Lady Macbeth Has your foolishness paralyzed you completely?
Lady Macbeth Nonsense!
Lady Macbeth My worthy lord, your noble friends miss your company.
Macbeth As sure as I'm standing here, I saw him.
Macbeth I forgot about them. Don't be alarmed on my account. Come, let's drink a toast:love and health to you all. Now I'll sit down. Give me some wine. Fill up my cup.
I drink to the happiness of everyone at the table, and to our dear friend Banquo, whom we miss miss. I wish he were here! Let's drink to everyone here, and to Banquo. Now, everybody, drink.
Macbeth It used to be that when you knocked a mans brain out he would just die, and that would be it. But now they rise from the dead with twenty fatal head wounds.
