Elizabeth is being accused of witchcraft in her own house. Abigail knows that the poppet is in the Proctor house and so commences her act about being stabbed. Cheever is indignant about Proctor ripping his warrant up. Proctor is also telling them to get out of his house. Hale tries to calm Proctor down but Proctor accuses Hale of being a "broken minister." To Proctor, Hale is doing the work for the cheating and vindictive court and is a broken man when it comes to truth and God's justice.
