Goods, though, immediately says that he follows “no man in such voyages”, and adds that, far from cleansing his book of reckoning, Everyman’s obsession with Goods has “blotted” it. “My love”, Goods adds, “is contrary to the love everlasting”. Everyman is surprised and disappointed to hear this. He tells Goods that he is “false” and a “traitor to God” who has caught him in a “snare”. Goods simply replies that Everyman did it to himself, laughs at Everyman and exits.
