After Tituba has talked to Hale and told what she'd done in the woods with the girls, Abby goes into a trance (self-made) and begins the hysteria that will lead to the deaths of many.....

Abigail rises, staring as though inspired, and cries out.

' Abigail: I want to open myself! They turn to her, startled. She is enraptured, as though in a pearly light. I want the light of God, I want the sweet love of Jesus! I danced for the Devil; I saw him; I wrote in his book; I go back to Jesus; I kiss His hand. I saw Sarah Good with the Devil! I saw Goody Osburn with the Devil! I saw Bridget Bishop with the Devil!"
