As he talks about this and that, he paces constantly about the room and stops frequently at the door  and listens to see if perhaps someone is still there. His pacing makes Raskolnikov more nervous.  The interview continues for so long and is filled with so much chatter, along with irrelevances, that  finally Raskolnikov loses his patience and tells Porfiry that he realizes the type of "cat and mouse  game" he is playing. Raskolnikov then asserts that if he is suspected of being the murderer of "that  old woman and her sister Lizaveta," then he demands to be arrested immediately or allowed to  leave. "If you find that you have a legal right to prosecute me or arrest me, then do it! But I will not  permit anyone to laugh in my face and torment me."
