Macbeth Act III

Who does Banquo suspect is Duncan's murderer? Macbeth (and he is correct)
How do Macbeth and Banquo feel about each other? Banquo does not trust Macbeth and Macbeth fears Banquo because of Banquo's noble background
What questions does Macbeth ask Banquo? He's checking out Banquo's plans about how far he's planning on riding and who is going with him because Macbeth wants to kill them both
Who does Macbeth meet with and why? Macbeth meets with 2 murderers to plan the murders of Banquo and Banquo's son Fleance-Macbeth suspects Banquo knows he murdered Duncan and wants to get rid of them before they reveal what they know
What are Macbeth's orders to the 2 murderers? To kill Banquo and Fleance
Do the murderers succeed in Macbeth's plan? Yes and no-they kill Banquo, but Fleance escapes
What does Lady Macbeth mean when she says, "What's done is done." that there is no use worrying about what they have done because they cannot go back and change it
From what affliction does Macbeth suffer? Sleeplessness and insomnia (inability to sleep)
What does Macbeth mean when he says, "Oh, my mind is full of scorpions." He cannot stop thinking bad thoughts and worries
How is the planning of Banquo's murder different from that of Duncan's murder? Banquo's murder was not committed by Macbeth but by men hired by Macbeth (whereas Macbeth killed Duncan himself) and Macbeth does not involve Lady Macbeth in Banquo's murder (whereas she was involved in planning Duncan's murder)
What is going on in the scene beginning with "In the great hall" A great banquet feast that Macbeth and Lady Macbeth are giving for the nobility of Scotland
Who appears to Macbeth only? (this apparition is only visible to Macbeth and no one else) The ghost of Banquo who disrupts the banquet for Macbeth by coming and sitting at Macbeth's place at the table
What does Macbeth say to the ghost of Banquo? "The table is full." His behavior appears odd to others since no one else sees the ghost and does not know who Macbeth is speaking to!
How does Lady Macbeth explain Macbeth's odd behavior and try to make an excuse for him? She says Macbeth has had this "infirmity since youth", these fits & seizures, and if the others ignore it Macbeth will stop
What does Macbeth mean when he says, "Blood will have blood?" Kill once then you have to keep killing to cover it up; one violent event leads to another violent event
What is Macbeth's plan for the following day? To go see the Three Witches
What does Hecate tell the Witches about Macbeth's downfall? That Macbeth was brought down by over-confidence "mortal's chiefest enemy"
What do Malcolm and Macduff do now? They seek the help of Edward, King of England
