1 Miss Sarah Pocket came to the gate.
2 "Dear Miss Havisham," said Miss Sarah Pocket.
3 Sarah Pocket conducted me down, as if I were a ghost who must be seen out.
4 This brought us to the dinner-table, where she and Sarah Pocket awaited us.
5 Miss Sarah," said Joe, "she have twenty-five pound perannium fur to buy pills, on account of being bilious.
6 She looked at me, and looked at Sarah, and Sarah's countenance wrung out of her watchful face a cruel smile.
7 She quite gloated on these questions and answers, so keen was her enjoyment of Sarah Pocket's jealous dismay.
8 When I said that I only came to see how Miss Havisham was, Sarah evidently deliberated whether or no she should send me about my business.
9 Sarah Pocket came to the gate, and positively reeled back when she saw me so changed; her walnut-shell countenance likewise turned from brown to green and yellow.
10 At the end of the passage, while the bell was still reverberating, I found Sarah Pocket, who appeared to have now become constitutionally green and yellow by reason of me.
11 I found Miss Sarah Pocket still on duty at the gate; I found Miss Havisham just as I had left her, and she spoke of Estella in the very same way, if not in the very same words.

13 Sarah Pocket and Georgiana contended who should remain last; but Sarah was too knowing to be outdone, and ambled round Georgiana with that artful slipperiness that the latter was obliged to take precedence.
14 She looked at Sarah Pocket with triumph in her weird eyes, and so I left my fairy godmother, with both her hands on her crutch stick, standing in the midst of the dimly lighted room beside the rotten bride-cake that was hidden in cobwebs.
15 Miss Sarah Pocket, whom I now saw to be a little dry, brown, corrugated old woman, with a small face that might have been made of walnut-shells, and a large mouth like a cat's without the whiskers, supported this position by saying, "No, indeed, my dear."
