  • The night where the main character's plan of revenge started.
  • The thousand injuries of Fortunato I had borne as I best could, but when he ventured upon insult I vowed revenge It was about dusk, one evening during the supreme madness of the Carnival season, that I encountered my friend. He accosted me with excessive warmth, for he had been drinking much. The man wore motley. He had on a tight-fitting parti-striped dress, and his head was surmounted by the conical cap and bells. I was so pleased to see him that I thought I should never have done wringing his hand.
  • "My friend, no. It is not the engagement, but the severe cold with which I perceive you are afflicted. The vaults are insufferably damp. They are encrusted with nitre." said Montresor "Let us go, nevertheless. The cold is merely nothing. Amontillado! You have been imposed upon. And as for Luchresi, he cannot distinguish Sherry from Amontillado."said Fortunato
  • The start of the journey to the catacombs where the nitre affected Fortunato
  • Montresor Taunting Fortunato
  • Come," I said, with decision, "we will go back; your health is precious. You are rich, respected, admired, beloved; you are happy, as once I was. You are a man to be missed. For me it is no matter. We will go back; you will be ill, and I cannot be responsible. Besides, there is Luchresi —" "Enough," he said; "the cough's a mere nothing; it will not kill me. I shall not die of a cough."
  • "True —true," I replied; "and, indeed, I had no intention of alarming you unnecessarily —but you should use all proper caution. A draught of this Medoc will defend us from the damps." Here I knocked off the neck of a bottle which I drew from a long row of its fellows that lay upon the mould. "Drink," I said, presenting him the wine. He raised it to his lips with a leer. He paused and nodded to me familiarly, while his bells jingled.
  • The scene whereMontresor giving Fortunato wine to make him drunk
  • These vaults," he said, "are extensive." 45 "The Montresors," I replied, "were a great and numerous family." 46 "I forget your arms." 47 "A huge human foot d'or, in a field azure; the foot crushes a serpent rampant whose fangs are imbedded in the heel." 48 "And the motto?" 49 "Nemo me impune lacessit." 50 "Good!" he said.
  • Montresor asking Fortunato about the family's motto which has meaning of revenge in it. At this point, Fortunato is a bit drunk
  • The end where Montresor succesfully gotten his revenge.
  • no answer. I called again — 88 "Fortunato!" 89 No answer still. I thrust a torch through the remaining aperture and let it fall within. There came forth in return only a jingling of the bells. My heart grew sick; it was the dampness of the catacombs that made it so. I hastened to make an end of my labour. I forced the last stone into its position; I plastered it up. Against the new masonry I re-erected the old rampart of bones. For the half of a century no mortal has disturbed them. In pace requiescat!
