Those bearded women were right! (To Ross and Angus)Thanks for telling me. (To Banquo) Well if they were right about this Cawdor thing maybe they were right about your children becoming kings! BANQUO: I dunno mate. But 'tis strange: And sometimes, to win us to our harm, The instruments of darkness tell us truths, In order to trick us later on.

BANQUO: Snap out of it worthy Macbeth, let’s get to that pub. MACBETH: Sounds like a good plan. Banquo, we’ll talk more about those women we met later on.
