Elizabeth sees John's moment alone with Abigail as another betrayal to their marriage vows.

"Proctor, stubbornly: For a moment alone, aye.

Elizabeth: Why, then, it is not as you told me.

Proctor, his anger rising: For a moment, I say. The others come in soon after.

Elizabeth, quietly - she has suddenly lost all faith in him: Do as you wish, then. She starts to turn."
