Murderer 1: But who did bid thee join with us?
Murderer 3: Macbeth
OJ: We donít need any more people in on this because I may not get off as easy as when I killed Macgoldman and lady Nicole.
[aside]: And you can all find out the true story of that in my $29.95 video.
M2: Sheís all right.
Murderer 2: He needs not our mistrust, since he delivers our offices and what we have to do to the direction just.
OJ: All right, but I donít like this.
Murderer 1: Then stand with us. The west yet glimmers with some streaks of day: now spurs the lated traveller apace to gain the timely inn; and near approaches the subject of our watch.

M2: There he is!
Murderer 2: Then 'tis he: the rest that are within the note of expectation already are i' the court.
Murderer 1: His horses go about.
Murderer 3: Almost a mile: but he does usually, so all men do, from hence to the palace gate make it their walk.

Murderer 3: Who did strike out the light?
OJ: Ainít that what we agreed on?
Murderer 1: Wast not the way?
M3: We only killed Banquo. His kid got away.
Murderer 3: There's but one down; the son is fled.
OJ: Oh no! Thereís gonna be another trial, but this time theyíve got an eyewitness!
Murderer 2: We have lost best half of our affair.

Murderer 2: Well, let's away, and say how much is done.
