Proctor: Pontius Pilate! God will not let you wash your hands of this!

Elizabeth: John-I think I must go with them. (He cannot bear to look at her) Mary, there is bread enough for the morning; you will bake, in the afternoon. Help Mr. Proctor as you were his daughter - you owe me that, and much more. (She is fighting her weeping) To PROCTOR: When the children wake, speak nothing of witchcraft -- it will frighten them. (She cannot go on)

Proctor: I will bring you home. I will bring you soon.

Elizabeth: Oh, John, bring me soon!

Proctor: I will fall like an ocean on that court! Fear nothing, Elizabeth.

Elizabeth (with great fear): I will fear nothing. (She looks about the room, as though to fix it in her mind) Tell the children I have gone to visit someone sick.

(She walks out the door. HENRICK and CHEEVER behind her. For a moment, PROCTOR watches from the doorway. The clank of chain is heard.)

Proctor: Herrick! Herrick, don't chain her! (He rushes out the door. From outside: Damn you, man, you will not chain her! Off with them! I'll not have it! I will not have her chained!

(There are other men's voices against his. HALE, in a fever of guilt and uncertainty, turns from the door to avoid the sight: MARY WARREN bursts into tears and sits weeping. GILES COREY calls to HALE.)
