Giles begins shouting He has evidence to save his wife

The accused are not allowed to defend themselves.
The person is suspected of being a witch.
Her deposition swears that she and the others were pretending.
Proctor realizes that he must also stand up for his friends and their accused wives.

A “marvelous, cool plot to murder.”
When Danforth questions her truthfulness.

“This is the highest court of the supreme government of this province, do you know it?” (Danforth, 1083) “Do you know who I am …?” (Danforth, 1083) “Let me continue.” (Danforth, 1085) “Mr. Hale, you surely do not doubt my justice.” (Danforth, 1091)
“What proof do you submit for your charge, sir?” (Danforth, 1088)
It does not escape me that this deposition may be devised to blind us; it may well be that Mary Warren has been conquered by Satan who sends her here to distract our sacred purpose. (Danforth, 1092) “You will confess yourself or you will hang!” (Danforth, 1101)
“I heard the other girls screaming, and you, your Honor, you seemed to believe them and I—It were only sport in the beginning, sir, but then the whole world cried spirits, spirits, and I—I promise you, “Mr. Danforth, I only thought I saw them but I did not.” (Mary Warren, 1095) “Don’t touch me – don’t touch me!” “You’re the Devil’s man!” (Mary Warren, ) “He come at me by night and every day to sign, to sign, to—“ (Mary Warren, 1102) “My name, he want my name; ‘I’ll murder you,’ he says, ‘if my wife hangs! We must go and overthrow the court,’ he says!” (Mary Warren, 1102)
“[Now staring full front as though hypnotized, and mimicking the exact tone of Mary Warren’s cry.] She sees nothin’!” (Abigail, 1100)
“Abby, Abby, I’ll never hurt you more!” (Mary Warren, 1102)
