Parris tells Abigail that he saw the the girls in the forest dancing.
I saw you and Betty dancing in the woods and someone was running through the trees, naked.
Abigail and Betty begin accusing innocent people of witchcraft to cover up what they did in the woods.
I saw George Jacobs with the Devil!
I saw Good Osburn worshiping the Devil!
Elizabeth gets arrested after Abigail accuses her of witchcraft and Mary Warren gives her a doll with a needle that signifies witchcraft.
I have a warrant for wife.
You can't take her! She's innocent!
They took my wife and Rebecca Nurse!
"Parris: ....Now look you, child-if you trafficked with spirits in the forest, I must know it, for surely my enemies will, and they‘ll ruin me with it…". This is significant because everyone that was in the woods that night, can be accused of witchcraft. They can also be beat because they were dancing.
"ABIGAIL: ......I saw Sarah Good (Betty‘s hands appear above headboard raised toward the heaven.) with the Devil! I saw Good Osburn with the devil! I saw Bridget Bishop with the Devil! (As she is speaking Betty picks it up as a chant.)". This is significant because when Betty and Abigail accuse everyone , they are covering up what they did in the woods. They gain total control of what is happening at this point.
"CHEEVER: I do, Proctor, aye. I am clerk of the court now, y‘know. (Takes a warrant from pocket.) I have a warrant for your wife". This is significant because Elizabeth is getting arrested since Abigail accused her of witchcraft and, gave Warren a doll to give to Elizabeth so that it looks like she is using witchcraft. One of the reasons why Abigail does this is to have John all to her self.
