Monsieur Defarge, Jarvis Lorry, and Lucie Manette are on their way up the very long, dark staircase to the room of Dr. Manette. Monsieur Defarge and Mr. Lorry talk about Dr. Manette all the way up, while Lucie remains quiet anticipating the meeting with her father.
"I think it's necessary to turn the key"
After stopping three times, the three finally make it to the door of the room. Monsieur takes out the key to the door much to Mr. Lorry's surprise. Since Dr. Manette has been locked up so long, Defarge explains he would be frightened to have it any other way. Meanwhile, Lucie is filled with anxiety and terror.
"You think it's necessary to keep the unfortunate gentleman so retired?"
The feeble, confused Dr. Manette is sitting in his room making shoes like he always does. He is unaware of the interesting encounter he's about to have.
As they walk into the room, they see the old man sitting on a bench making a lady's walking shoe.
You could hear the loss of life in the voice of the doctor. As they talk, there are long pauses, and it's obvious Dr. Manette is confused and still thinks he is in prison.
..."One Hundred and Five, North Tower."
"What is your name?"
Mr. Manette sets his eyes on Lucie Manette who was standing next to him. He notices she looks very familiar, much like his wife.
