Proctor: It’’s winter in here yet. On Sunday let you come with me, and we’’ll walk the farm together; I never see such a load of flowers on the earth. With good feeling he goes and looks up at the sky through the open doorway. Lilacs have a purple smell. Lilac is the smell of nightfall, I think. Massachusetts is a beauty in the spring!

Elizabeth: Aye, it is.

Elizabeth is feeling detached..... unsure. There is something bothering her that hasn't yet been revealed.
