Macbeth Test (Act 5 Scene 1 and 2)

I have two nights watched with you but can perceive no truth in your report. When was it she last walked? Doctor
Since his majesty went into the field, I have seen her rise from her bed, throw her nightgown upon her, unlock her closet, take forth paper, fold it, write upon ‘t, read it, afterwards seal it, and again return to bed; yet all this while in a most fast sleep. Gentlewoman
A great perturbation in nature, to receive at once the benefit of sleep, and do the line>effects of watching. In this slumbery agitation, besides her walking and other actual performances, what, at any time, have you heard her say? Doctor
That, sir, which I will not report after her. Gentlewoman
Neither to you nor any one, having no witness to confirm my speech. Lo you, here she comes. This is her very guise; and, upon my life, fast asleep. Observe her, stand close. Gentlewoman
How came she by that light? Doctor
Why, it stood by her. She has light by her continually. ‘Tis her command. Gentlewoman
You see her eyes are open. Doctor
Ay, but their sense is shut. Gentlewoman
What is it she does now? Look, how she rubs her hands. Doctor
It is an accustomed action with her to seem thus washing her hands. I have known her continue in this a quarter of an hour. Gentlewoman
Hark! She speaks. I will set down what comes from her, to satisfy my remembrance the more strongly. Doctor
Out, damned spot! Out, I say!—One, two. Why, then, ’tis time to do ‘t. Hell is murky!—Fie, my lord, fie! A soldier, and afeard? What need we fear who knows it, when none can call our power to account?—Yet who would have thought the old man to have had so much blood in him. Lady Macbeth
The thane of Fife had a wife. Where is she now?—What, will these hands ne’er be clean?—No more o’ that, my lord, no more o’ that. You mar all with this starting. Lady Macbeth
Go to, go to. You have known what you should not. Doctor
She has spoke what she should not, I am sure of that. Heaven knows what she has known. Gentlewoman
Here’s the smell of the blood still. All the perfumes of Arabia will not sweeten this little hand. Oh, Oh, Oh! Lady Macbeth
What a sigh is there! The heart is sorely charged. Doctor
I would not have such a heart in my bosom for the dignity of the whole body. Gentlewoman
This disease is beyond my practice. Yet I have known those which have walked in their sleep who have died holily in their beds. Doctor
Wash your hands. Put on your nightgown. Look not so pale.—I tell you yet again, Banquo’s buried; he cannot come out on ‘s grave. Lady Macbeth
To bed, to bed. There’s knocking at the gate. Come, come, come, come. Give me your hand. What’s done cannot be undone.—To bed, to bed, to bed! Lady Macbeth
Foul whisp’rings are abroad. Unnatural deedsDo breed unnatural troubles. Infected mindsTo their deaf pillows will discharge their secrets.More needs she the divine than the physician.God, God forgive us all! Look after her,Remove from her the means of all annoyance,And still keep eyes upon her. So, good night.My mind she has mated, and amazed my sight.I think, but dare not speak. Doctor
