The doubts mount to regret as he returns gingerly to his bedroom to find his excited Lady. The Lady, confident with the nights killing is angered by Macbeth when he produces the murderous daggers which are covered in blood so she returns them. Macbeth is haunted by bodiless calls and taunts that'Macbeth shalt sleep no more, Macbeth hath murdered sleep'. Lady Macbeth dismisses these taunts as just voices inside his head.
