  • "Aomontillado, A pipe? Impossible! And in the middle of the carnival!" Montresor has "luckily met" Fortunado and is now going to put his plan into works
  • Some sort of decay (the niter and bones on the cave walls)
  • "Thus speaking, Fortunado possessed himself of my arm; and putting on a mask of black silk and drawing a roquelaire closely about my person, I suffered him to hurry me to my palazzo." Montresor and Fortunado are heading to the palazzo to "taste the amontillado"
  • unlucky omens appear (the trowel and Fortunado's illness/drinking problem)
  • "I took from their sconces two flambeaux, and giving one to Fortunado, bowed him through several suites of rooms to the archway that led into the vaults"  Montresor is leading Fortunado into the vault
  • unexplained manifestations (as soon as montresor starts walling up Fortunado, Fortunado "suddenly" sobers up)
  •  "my poor friend found it impossible to reply for minutes.  It is nothing, he said at last" Montresor is pretending like he cares about Fortunado when in reality he would be fine if he died right then and there
  • "Drink, I said presenting him the wine, he raised it to his lips with leer" Montresor is getting Fortunado even more drunk can execute his plan perfectly
  • "We will have many a rich laugh about it at the palazzo, over our wine" "For the love of GOD Montresor" Montresor's plan worked perfectly and Fortunado begs for mercy
