Storyboard Text

  • How dare he insult me! I will have my revenge, Fortunato.
  • My dear Fortunato, you are luckily met. I have received a pipe of what passes for amontillado.
  • Amontillado?
  • As you are engaged, I am on my way to Luchesi.
  • Luchesi cannot tell amontillado from sherry.
  • Fortunato insults Montresor. This makes Montresor swear revenge on Fortunato. This is important because it sets up the story.
  • We will go back; your health is precious.
  • *Cough, cough* the cough is a mere nothing. I shall not die of a cough
  • I am a mason. See my trowel?
  • Montresor runs into Fortunato at the Carnival. He tells Fortunato he bought a cask of amontellado, but he doubts the authenticity. This is important because it piques Fortunato's interest and makes him want to come with Montresor.
  • You jest! But let us proceed to the amontillado.
  • Montresor protests Fortunato's coming, saying that he hates to force Fortunato away from the party and that Luchesi can look at the wine. Montresor knows Fortunato hates Luchesi and that this will make him want to come with Montresor.
  • In pace requiescat.
  • Montresor leads Fortunato into the cellars, which are full of niter which is bad for Fortunato's health. He implores Fortunato to turn back and he can ask Luchesi. This is important because it only strengthens Fortunato's desire to see the amontillado.
  • Montresor says that he is a mason, hinting at his true intentions; Fortunato mistakes this as Montresor being part of the Free Masons. This is important because it shows how foolish Fortunato is, just like his costume.
  • Montresor builds a wall in front of Fortunato, trapping him in the catacombs. He then throws a torch in, killing Fortunato. This is important because it completes Montresor's revenge.
