Storyboard Text

  • “My dear Fortunato, you are luckily met. How remarkably well you are looking to-day! But I have received a pipe of what passes for Amontillado, and I have my doubts.”
  • “Let us go, nevertheless. The cold is merely nothing. Amontillado! You have been imposed upon. And as for Luchesi, he cannot distinguish Sherry from Amontillado.” 
  • “It is farther on,” said I; “but observe the white webwork which gleams from these cavern walls.” 
  • “True,” I replied; “the Amontillado.” As I said these words I busied myself among the pile of bones of which I have before spoken. Throwing them aside, I soon uncovered a quantity of building stone and mortar. With these materials and with the aid of my trowel, I began vigorously to wall up the entrance of the niche.

  • . “Not I,” I replied. “How?” “You are not of the masons.” “Yes, yes,” I said; “yes, yes.” “A mason,” I replied.
  • “The Amontillado!” ejaculated my friend, not yet recovered from his astonishment. 
  • grew impatient. I called aloud: “Fortunato!” No answer. I called again: “Fortunato!” No answer still.
  • “Ha! ha! ha!—he! he!—a very good joke indee” “Ha! ha! ha!—he! he!—a very good joke indeed—an excellent jest. We will have many a rich laugh about it at the palazzo—he! he! he!—over our wine—he! he! he!”
