Are enjoying themselves.
Are engaging in witchcraft.

It could cost him his ministry and his daughter's life
They are good friends

He hopes Hale will talk sense into Betty
Abigail is a lazy servant
Goody Proctor was a demanding employer
Abigail left on good terms
Goody Proctor suspected the relationship between her husband and Abigail
Thinks the proceedings are absurd
Is afraid of leaving his wife, who is not well
Is busy sowing the fields and working the farm
Fears that Abigail will reveal their adulterous affair
She mumbles the Ten Commandments
She possesses a poppet with a needle in its belly
She says that Abigail "must be ripped out of the world"
Abigail discovers a needle in her own belly
Desire for honesty and truth
Hysteria, which has gripped much of the village
Desire for Elizabeth to hang so that she can marry John Proctor
Desire for revenge for being dismissed from the Proctor household
Equal justice for all
Doesn't want to upset his wife
Has a grander goal of overthrowing the court
No longer loves his wife and wants to see her hang
Realizes that he must also stand up for his friends and their accused wives
Person is hailed a hero
Person is thrown out of court
Person is then suspected of being a witch
Evidence is recorded and considered by the court
The community is in a state of chaos.
Salem is no longer a farming community.
The trials have turned people toward witchcraft.
The witches in prison ar casting spells on the village.
She is guilty of doing the Devil's work
Abigail is not a bad person
She was right to suspect her husband's loyalty
Her cold heart was partly to blame for her husband's infidelity
She fears that they will hang her too
John refuses to hear what she has to say
Even in the face of death, she cannot forgive him
She does not want to take away her husband's chance for salvation
