chapter nine and ten poster
Chapter 9 Analysis: Pip is showing that he trusts and respects Joe as a person. Pip knows that Joe is the only person that treats him like an equal. Joe comforts Pip when he is going through a rough time. Joe is the kind of person that Pip could tell anything to because he respects his company and the way he treats Pip. Even though Joe's reaction was not predicted by Pip, Pip wasn't offended or disappointed like he would be when he got reprimanded by Mr. Pumblechook or his Mrs. Joe. He knew that Joe was right in his ideals and actually listened to him. Chapter 10 Analysis: It displays the mysteriousness of how the convict got out of his captivity. Pip realizes that the stranger ends up being his convict because of the file that he snuck away from Joe and gave it to the convict. The convict was then stirring his rum-and-water with he specific file that Pip gave him. It also shows Pip's awareness ability because he knew that someone was staring at him and something had to be going on. Pip was then observing the stranger and realized it was his convict.
"`Joe ' said I, taking hold of his rolled-up shirt sleeve, and twist- ing it between my finger and thumb, `you remember all that about Miss Havisham's? ' `Remember? ' said Joe. `I believe you! Wonderful!' `It's a terrible thing, Joe; it ain't true.' `What are you telling of, Pip?' cried Joe, falling back in the greatest amazement. `You don't mean to say it's --' `Yes I do; it's lies, Joe.'"

"He stirred his rum-and-water pointedly at me, and he tasted his rum-and-water pointedly at me. And he stirred it and he tasted it: not with a spoon that was brought to him, but with a file. He did this so that nobody but I saw the file; and when he had done it he wiped the file and put it in a breast-pocket. I knew it to be Joe's file, and I knew that he knew my convict."
