In Act I, Teach walks in swearing about Ruth, and how he feels she mistreated him. His anger builds until he says that the only way to teach people like Ruth and Grace is to kill them. At the time, it seems like Teach just blowing off steam, but it foreshadows his violence at the climax of the play.
