Storyboard Text

  • The Montresors were a great and numerous family.
  • These vaults are extensive.
  • A huge human foot d'or, in a field azure; the foot crushes a serpent rampant whose fangs are imbedded in the heel. - Nemo me impune lacessit.
  • I forget your arms. - And the motto?
  • This is an example of dramatic irony. It is ironic because "nemo me impune lacessit" means "no one attacks me with impunity." Montresor was going to punish Fortunato for insulting him, however, Fortunato was unaware of this insult.
  • If he only knew...
  • Good!
