Act 1, Scene 7 - If we should fail?

  1. Macbeth:

      If we should fail?

  2. Lady Macbeth:

     We fail?
    But screw your courage to the sticking-placeget your courage up
    And we'll not fail. When Duncan is asleep, 
    (Whereto the rather shall his day's hard journey 
    Soundly invite him) his two chamberlainsget your courage up today's journey will have made him tiredalcoholic drinkpersonal attendents 
    Will I with wine and wassailget your courage up today's journey will have made him tiredalcoholic drink so convince, 
    That memory, the warder of the brain, 
    Shall be a fume, and the receipt of reason 
    A limbeck only. When in swinish sleep 
    Their drenchéd natures lie as in a death, 
    What cannot you and I perform upon 
    Th’ unguarded Duncan? What not put upon 
    His spongy officers, who shall bear the guilt 
    Of our great quell?
