At the feast Macbeth appears in good spirits until the first murderer comes in and tells him that Banquo is dead, 'his throat is cut', but Fleance has escaped, 'Fleance has 'scaped'. Suddenly Banquo's ghost appears sitting in his throne, Macbeth thinks it is Banquo in the flesh and insists that he cannot sit because the table is full, 'the table is full'. When he realises none of the others can see him he is driven mad with fear and guilt he tells the ghost 'thou canst not say I did it. Never shake thy gory locks at me'. Lady Macbeth quickly quickly apologiese to the guests about Macbeth's behaviour saying that he has suffered from fits since he was a youth. Privately she ask him, 'Are you a man?' to shame him. Macbeth calms down when the ghost leaves and he excuses his behaviour saying, 'I have a strange infirmity which is nothing to those that know me'. Macbeth toasts Banquo as the ghost reappears, 'to our dear friends,' when macbeth sees the ghost for a second time. He starts screaming insults at it, he yells, 'Thy bones are marrowless' and orders the ghost to leave saying, 'Hence, horrible shadow unreal mock'ry, hence!' The ghost leaves once again and leave Macbeth incredibly stressed. Lady Macbeth quickly tells the guests to leave before Macbeth begins to unravel any further.
