The author explains, "he leaped upon the rail and balenced himself there, to get greater elevation; his pipe, striking a rope, was knocked from his mouth. He lunged for it; a short hoarse cry came from his lips as he realized he had reached too far and lost his balance. The cry was pinched off short as blood-warm waters of the Caribbean Sea closed over his head" (Corrnell 63).
Zaroff admits, "Your Burmese tiger pit has claimed one of my best dogs. Again you scored" (Cornell 78).
The author states, "Twenty feet below him the sea rumbled and hissed. Rainsford hesitated. He heard the hounds. Then he leaped far out into the sea" (Cornell 80).
The general yelled, "'Rainsford! How in God's name did you get here?'" (Cornell 80).
Zaroff declares, "'One of us is to furnish a repast for the hounds. The other will sleep in this very excellent bed. On guard Rainsford...'" in which the author replied, " he had never slept in a better bed Rainsford decided" (Cornell 80).
