PROCTOR: Herrick! Herrick, don’t chain her! (He rushes out the door. From outside.) you, man, you will not chain her! Off with them! I’ll not have it! I will not have her chained!

(There are other men’s voices against his. Hale, in a fever of guilt and uncertainty, turns from the door to avoid the sight; Mary Warren bursts into tears and sits weeping. Giles Corey calls to Hale.)
