When Abigail warns Parris that there are rumors of witchcraft and that the parlor is packed with people. Parris tells her that he cannot reveal that he found his daughter and niece dancing in the forest like heathens. Abigail admits to dancing and is willing to accept the punishment, but will not admit to witchcraft. Parris, on the other hand, is not so much worried about the sin the girls committed but rather the possibility that his enemies will use this scandal against him.
