Macbeth returns and is told to "Look like th'innocent flower but be the serpent under't", Act 1 Scene 6 - King Duncan arrives at Macbeth's castle and thinks it feels very welcoming, "This castle hath a pleasant seat" (dramatic irony alert!), Act 1 Scene 7 - Macbeth struggles with his conscience about killing King Duncan, tries to remain loyal, "We will proceed no further in this business" to then be called weak by Lady Macbeth who says he will, "live a coward",
