Storyboard Text

  • Yes I am Fine! A cough won't kill me!
  • Just a bit further in the catacombs! You will love the wine! Are you sure you want to continue? Your cough is bad.
  • ...You were right my friend, a cough won't kill you! I will!
  • When a person says or writes one thing and means another, or uses words to mean the opposite of the literal meaning.
