What does Macbeth call himself, to announce his presence to Banquo, at the beginning of the scene? “A friend” (2.1, Line 13)
What did King Duncan give Lady Macbeth? “This diamond” ( 2.1, line 18)
Who dreamt of the Weird Sisters last night? Banquo; ” I dreamt last night of the three Weird Sisters. To you they have shown some truth.” (2.1. line 25)
What does Macbeth hallucinate? A dagger; ” Is this a dagger which I see before me, The handle toward my hand?” (2.1,line 44)
How do we know the dagger is an hallucination? “Come, let me clutch thee. I have thee not, and yet I see thee still” (2.1, line 47)
Macbeth counsels himself as to the meaning of the dagger. “Art thou not, fatal vision, sensible To feeling as to sight? Or art thou but A dagger of the mind, a false creation, Proceeding from the heat-oppressed brain?”(2.1, line 48)
How does Macbeth describe his hopes to kill Duncan quietly? “Thou sure and firm-set earth, Hear not my steps, which way they walk, for fear thy very stones prate of my whereabouts.” (2.1, line 70)

Macbeth is pondering too long before the murder and scolds himself for talking too much. “Whiles, I threat, he lives. Words to the heat of deeds too cold a breath gives.” (2.1, line 73)
What can Macbeth hear that Duncan cannot? The bell; “I go and it is done. The bell invites me. Hear it not Duncan, for it is a knell That summons thee to heaven or to hell.” (2.1 Line 75)
