BETTY: You drank blood, Abby! You didn't tell him that!
ABIGAIL: Betty, you never say that again! You will never-
BETTY: You did, you did! You drank a charm to kill John Proctor's wife! You drank a charm to kill Goody Proctor!
ABIGAIL, smashes her across the face: Shut it! Now shut it! We learn the true motives behind Abigail’s actions, even as she tries to get the girls to agree on a story to protect herself. She uses the threat of violence Quotes By Elizabeth
PROCTOR: I am only wondering how I may prove what she [Abigail] told me, Elizabeth. If the girl’s a saint now, I think it is not easy to prove she’s fraud, and the town gone so silly. She told it to me in a room alone-I have no proof for it.
ELIZABETH: You were alone with her?
PROCTOR, stubbornly: For a moment alone, aye.
ELIZABETH: Why, then, it is not as you told me.
PROCTOR, his anger rising: For a moment, I say. The others come in soon after.
ELIZABETH, quietly-she has suddenly lost all faith in him: Do as you wish, then. She starts to turn.
PROCTOR: Woman. She turns to him. I'll not have your suspicion any more.
ELIZABETH, a little loftily: I have no –
PROCTOR: I'll not have it!
ELIZABETH: Then let you not earn it.
(II.65-74) Because of Proctor’s earlier deceit, Elizabeth can’t trust him, no matter how much she would like to. By Aliza Charbonneau and Brittni Watkins One of their major similarities is they both love John Proctor.
Elizabeth loves him because he was her husband, they have shared their lives together, and they have children together. Abby loves him for the lust. She only wants him because she knows she cannot have him. They might both love him, but for very different reasons. Elizabeth loves him for all the right reasons, while Abby loves him for selfish reasons. Religion is one way they are different. Abigail does several things in the play that were against her religion.
Elizabeth was a good Puritan. She was conservative and would not lie. The only time she lied was to protect her husband. She dances in the forest She lies in court and she could be considered a murderer. Abigail gets countless people killed by breaking her religion.
