SHIPS' BELLS RING IN DISTANCE

GEESE HONK

CLANKING OF CHAINS

0:02:330:02:34

-PIP CRIES OUT

-Hold your noise!

0:02:340:02:36

Hold your noise, you little devil, or I'll out your throat!

0:02:360:02:38

-Tell us your, name! Quick!

-Pip!

0:02:400:02:42

-Once more! Give it mouth!

-Pip!

0:02:420:02:43

-Shh!

-Pip, sir! No, sir, please!

0:02:430:02:47

-You got wittles on you, boy? You got wittles on you?

-No, sir!

0:02:470:02:50

Come here.

0:02:510:02:53

What fat cheeks you got.

0:02:530:02:55

Darn me if I couldn't eat 'em.

0:02:550:02:57

Where's your mother?

0:02:570:02:59

STAMMERING: There, sir!

0:02:590:03:01

Also Georgiana, sir.

0:03:010:03:02

My mother and brothers, too.

0:03:020:03:04

Orphan, eh?

0:03:040:03:05

Who d'you live with? That supposin' I let you live.

0:03:050:03:08

My sister, sir, Mrs Joe Gargery,

0:03:080:03:10

wife of Joe Gargery, the blacksmith.

0:03:100:03:13

Blacksmith, eh?

0:03:130:03:14

You know what a file is?

0:03:150:03:17

-You know what wittles is?

-Yes, sir, food, sir.

0:03:170:03:19

I ain't alone, as you may think I am.

0:03:190:03:22

There's a young man hid with me in comparison with which I am an angel,

0:03:220:03:26

and he has a secret way of getting at a boy, and at his heart,

0:03:260:03:30

and at his liver, so that they may be roasted and ate.

0:03:300:03:32

It is in vain for a boy to hide from that young man.

0:03:320:03:36

Now, you bring me tomorrow morning early, in this graveyard,

0:03:360:03:40

that file and them wittles,

0:03:400:03:42

never daring to say a word,

0:03:420:03:45

and I will do what I can to keep that young man out of your insides.

0:03:450:03:49

-Understand? Speak it out!

-Yes, sir!

-Now get you home.

0:03:490:03:53

CHAINS JANGLE

0:03:560:03:57

There you are, Pip! Ah, your sister's been out a dozen times looking for you.

0:04:220:04:26

-Now, listen, she's on the rampage and she's got Tickler with her.

-WOMAN YELLS OUTSIDE

0:04:260:04:30

Now, I'll do what I can but you best get in there behind the door.

0:04:300:04:34

-Now... You ready?

-WOMAN:

-Where have you been?

0:04:340:04:36

Wearing me out with fret and worry!

0:04:370:04:39

-I said, "Where have you been?"

-MAN GRUNTS

0:04:390:04:41

-The churchyard.

-The churchyard! If it weren't for me

0:04:410:04:44

you would've been to the churchyard years ago, and stayed there!

0:04:440:04:46

-Who brought you up by hand?

-BOTH:

-You did!

0:04:460:04:48

Why did I, I should like to know! Fetch the tar water!

0:04:480:04:51

There's no need for tar water, my love. It's Christmas.

0:04:510:04:53

-Fetch it!

-PIP GROANS

0:04:530:04:55

Bad enough having to be a blacksmith's wife, without having to mother you, too.

0:04:550:04:59

-You're driving me to the churchyard.

-You all right?

0:04:590:05:02

-You'd like that, both of you, I suppose.

-Tar water. You be careful.

0:05:020:05:06

Table! Now!

0:05:080:05:09

DISTANT EXPLOSION

0:05:110:05:13

There's another convict escaped from the Hulks.

0:05:130:05:16

-What might he have done, the convict?

-Murder most likely.

0:05:170:05:21

That's why they put them in the Hulks, because they murder.

0:05:210:05:24

-"Murder"?

-Murder and robbing. That's too many questions!

0:05:240:05:27

Where's that bread gone?

0:05:280:05:29

I ate it.

0:05:320:05:33

-You did, did you?

-HE MOUTHS

0:05:350:05:37

SNORING

0:05:560:05:59

Sir. Sir...

0:06:430:06:45

MAN GRUNTS, PIP GASPS

0:06:450:06:47

Did you bring it, boy?

0:07:230:07:25

Yes, sir. Here.

0:07:250:07:28

What's in the bottle?

0:07:290:07:32

-Brandy.

-Here. Here.

0:07:320:07:34

HE GASPS

0:07:360:07:38

HE COUGHS

0:07:380:07:40

HE GAGS

0:07:400:07:41

HE SIGHS

0:07:410:07:43

-You brought no-one with you?

-No, sir!

0:07:490:07:51

-And you asked no-one to follow?

-I wouldn't do that, sir.

0:07:510:07:54

I'm glad you enjoy the pie.

0:07:590:08:01

Oh, thank 'ee, my boy, I do. I do.

0:08:010:08:03

-There'll be none left for him!

-"Him"?

0:08:030:08:06

-Who's "him"?

-The young man you spoke of. Who wants to eat my liver.

0:08:060:08:10

Oh, him! HE CHUCKLES

0:08:100:08:14

-He won't want no pie.

-LAUGHING

0:08:140:08:17

He looked as if he did.

0:08:180:08:20

Looked? What d'you mean, looked?

0:08:200:08:22

-I saw him.

-When?

-Just now.

0:08:220:08:25

-Where?

-Down by the river.

0:08:250:08:27

What with... Dressed like me with a bruised face?

0:08:270:08:30

-Here? Badly bruised?

-Yes, sir.

-Give me the file, boy!

0:08:300:08:33

Hunt him down like a dog, I will.

0:08:360:08:39

-Goodbye, then, sir.

-Let him go free?

-Merry Christmas, sir.

0:08:390:08:42

-Let him make a fool of me again?

-Goodbye.

0:08:420:08:45

That villain. I'll take him to the bottom of the river...

0:08:450:08:49

# ..On Christmas day, on Christmas day

0:08:510:08:54

# And all the souls on earth shalt sing

0:08:540:08:56

# On Christmas day in the morning

0:08:560:08:59

# Then let us all rejoice and sing

0:08:590:09:01

# On Christmas day, on Christmas day... #

0:09:010:09:03

CHEERING

0:09:030:09:05

Beautiful.

0:09:050:09:07

ALL LAUGH

0:09:070:09:12

A beautiful piece of meat, that is.

0:09:120:09:15

For the great feast we are about to receive, thanks to you, ma'am...

0:09:160:09:19

-Hear, hear!

-May the good Lord make us truly thankful.

0:09:190:09:23

-Amen.

-ALL: Amen!

0:09:230:09:26

Did you hear that? Be grateful!

0:09:260:09:27

Especially, my boy, as to those what brought you up by hand.

0:09:270:09:31

Why is it that the young are never grateful?

0:09:310:09:34

ALL SIGHING

0:09:340:09:35

-Naturally wicious!

-Wicious little ferret. What? ALL LAUGH

0:09:350:09:39

-They're lovely!

-They're not lovely. They're wicious.

0:09:390:09:41

More gravy, Mr Wopsle?

0:09:410:09:43

ALL CHATTER

0:09:430:09:46

Mm-hm.

0:09:460:09:48

ALL MUNCH

0:09:480:09:50

Oh, I nearly forgot! Ladies and gentlemen,

0:09:500:09:53

please do leave a little room for the savoury pork pie

0:09:530:09:57

so kindly provided for by dear Mr Pumblechook.

0:09:570:10:00

No more than you deserve, ma'am.

0:10:000:10:02

I'll get it now. Shall I get it now?

0:10:020:10:05

I'll get it now.

0:10:050:10:07

I often say, a slice of savoury pork pie

0:10:070:10:10

-will sit on top of anything you care to mention...

-< Are you all right?

0:10:100:10:13

..and do no harm.

0:10:130:10:14

Especially with a little brandy.

0:10:140:10:16

Wise words, as always.

0:10:160:10:17

It's in here somewhere.

0:10:170:10:19

At least it was here. It's gone!

0:10:190:10:22

HE SPLUTTERS AND COUGHS

0:10:220:10:25

-There's tar water in the brandy!

-Pip!

0:10:250:10:28

Where do you think you're going, boy?

0:10:290:10:31

HE GASPS

0:10:310:10:32

CLAMOUR

0:10:320:10:34

-Oh, that is hot, yeah.

-Well done, blacksmith. Well done.

0:10:340:10:37

Nasty vicious characters, both of them.

0:10:400:10:42

Not the kind you'd want to stumble upon alone, eh?

0:10:420:10:44

Anybody here seen anything of such a gang?

0:10:440:10:46

-Nothing, Sergeant.

-Thank you, ma'am.

0:10:460:10:47

Your health, sir.

0:10:500:10:51

Thank you, sir. A fine job.

0:10:510:10:54

We found them filed clean through.

0:10:540:10:56

But no matter. We'll have 'em back on him in no time.

0:10:560:11:00

Course, if any of you gentlemen fancy some sport...

0:11:000:11:03

-Oh, yes.

-Willingly.

0:11:030:11:05

Right, outside. Fall in.

0:11:050:11:06

Jump to it!

0:11:060:11:08

Come on, let's be having you.

0:11:080:11:10

Out you come, Pip.

0:11:100:11:11

I hope we don't find 'em, Joe.

0:11:210:11:22

I hope so too, old chap.

0:11:220:11:24

I hope so too.

0:11:240:11:25

-INDISTINCT SHOUTING MAN:

-Over here, Sergeant!

0:11:370:11:41

Come here!

0:11:410:11:42

INDISTINCT SHOUTING

0:11:420:11:44

-SERGEANT:

-You, man, break it off.

0:11:440:11:47

Break it off.

0:11:480:11:50

Get them. Go.

0:11:500:11:51

-GRUNTING, PUNCHES LAND

-Get out there, you cowardly bastard.

0:11:510:11:54

Move. Move.

0:11:540:11:56

HE GRUNTS

0:11:560:11:57

I've got him!

0:11:570:11:59

-HE GRUNTS

-Break it off! Break it off!

0:11:590:12:01

CHAINES JANGLE, THUMPING

0:12:010:12:03

What are you waiting for? Get out there!

0:12:030:12:05

HE GROANS

0:12:050:12:06

Go on, get in!

0:12:060:12:08

GRUNTING

0:12:080:12:10

-CONVICT 1:

-Let me at him! Let me at him!

0:12:110:12:14

-He tried to murder me!

-OFFICERS SHOUT

0:12:140:12:19

-I took him!

-Get those leg irons over here.

0:12:190:12:21

He tried to murder me!

0:12:210:12:23

Let him go free? Let him profit from me again and again?

0:12:230:12:26

Let's put him down.

0:12:260:12:27

-He tried to murder me!

-Quiet, you!

0:12:270:12:30

I should have been a dead man, if you hadn't got here!

0:12:300:12:33

I wish to say something.

0:12:380:12:40

-A confession if you like.

-Wait.

0:12:400:12:43

Go on.

0:12:430:12:44

A man can't starve.

0:12:440:12:46

I took, stole, some wittles up at the village.

0:12:460:12:50

And a file, too.

0:12:500:12:52

And I'll tell you from where.

0:12:520:12:54

The blacksmith's.

0:12:540:12:55

Brandy and a pie.

0:12:550:12:57

Have you missed such an article as a pie, blacksmith?

0:12:570:12:59

-My wife did.

-So you're the blacksmith, are you?

0:12:590:13:03

Then I'm sorry to say I've eat your pie.

0:13:040:13:07

God knows you're welcome to it.

0:13:070:13:09

We don't know what you've done,

0:13:090:13:11

but we wouldn't wish you to starve to death for it, would us, Pip?

0:13:110:13:14

No.

0:13:150:13:16

Pip?

0:13:180:13:20

Move on!

0:13:200:13:21

CHAINS JANGLE

0:13:210:13:23

-MAN:

-Swing your legs in there.

0:13:320:13:34

I say, Pip, old chap!

0:14:030:14:05

What a scholar you are!

0:14:050:14:06

I should like to be, some day.

0:14:060:14:09

Here, read it, Joe.

0:14:090:14:10

Read it.

0:14:120:14:13

Read it.

0:14:150:14:16

"My dear Joe,

0:14:230:14:25

"I hope you are quite well.

0:14:250:14:29

"I shall soon be able for to teach you, Joe.

0:14:290:14:35

-"And what larks!"

-"Larks"!

0:14:350:14:38

It's a J.

0:14:380:14:39

An O.

0:14:390:14:41

-HE STAMMERS

-That's the best O I ever saw.

0:14:410:14:43

-It's astonishing!

-PIP CHUCKLES

0:14:430:14:45

How interesting this reading is!

0:14:450:14:47

-Perhaps I could teach you one day, Joe.

-Perhaps.

0:14:470:14:51

Be it so, be it so.

0:14:520:14:54

But I fear I am most awful... awful...dull.

0:14:540:14:58

PIP SIGHS

0:14:580:14:59

-Not like you, young scholar!

-BOTH CHUCKLE

0:14:590:15:02

HE SIGHS

0:15:040:15:05

Ever the best of friends. Thanks, Pip.

0:15:070:15:10

Ever the best of friends, Joe.

0:15:100:15:11

And when you're apprenticed to me, what larks.

0:15:110:15:16

-MRS JOE:

-Gargery!

0:15:160:15:17

-She must be, what, two mile off?

-THEY LAUGH

0:15:190:15:22

-MRS JOE:

-GARGERY!

0:15:240:15:26

Best be getting back, old chap.

0:15:260:15:28

MRS GARGERY SCREAMS IN DISTANCE

0:15:280:15:31

You're not too quick for me yet!

0:15:340:15:36

Now, if this boy ain't grateful, he never will be.

0:15:360:15:40

I only hope he won't be pampered.

0:15:400:15:42

She ain't in that line, ma'am, have no fear.

0:15:420:15:44

-"She"?

-Well, Miss Havisham ain't a he, is she?

0:15:440:15:46

Even you ain't as dull as that!

0:15:460:15:47

Well put, ma'am. Good indeed.

0:15:470:15:49

-Mr Pumblechook...

-Her tenant, don't you see?

0:15:490:15:51

..goes to pay his rent and Miss Havisham says,

0:15:510:15:54

does he know a boy who might go and play there for her pleasure?

0:15:540:15:58

And Mr Pumblechook always being considerate and thoughtful of us...

0:15:580:16:02

No more than you deserve, ma'am.

0:16:020:16:03

..mentions this boy prancing here

0:16:030:16:05

to go straightaway!

0:16:050:16:07

For all we know our fortune might be made and all he has to do is play!

0:16:070:16:10

I don't want to.

0:16:100:16:11

-You listen to me, ungrateful wretch!

-PIP GRUNTS

0:16:110:16:13

Want to mix with people of quality and breeding

0:16:130:16:15

or stay here and rot with this great lumpen noodle?

0:16:150:16:19

-Stay here.

-What?!

0:16:210:16:22

-What?

-SHE GRUNTS

0:16:240:16:26

SHE GASPS

0:16:270:16:29

-Breathe in. Breathe.

-SHE YELLS

0:16:310:16:35

Six sixes.

0:16:380:16:40

36.

0:16:400:16:42

-Minus 35.

-One.

0:16:420:16:46

Plus 119.

0:16:460:16:48

119...

0:16:480:16:50

Um, 120.

0:16:500:16:52

Divided by 84.

0:16:520:16:53

Your answer, please, boy. Your answer.

0:16:550:16:57

So start again.

0:16:570:16:59

12 times 39...

0:16:590:17:03

Four times 17.

0:17:140:17:15

Too slow! 68.

0:17:150:17:17

Nine times 13.

0:17:170:17:19

117...

0:17:190:17:20

Now, boy, remember your station

0:17:280:17:31

and let your conduct be a credit

0:17:310:17:33

as to those which brought you up by hand.

0:17:330:17:35

Ow! PIP GRUNTS

0:17:350:17:37

-Look, the clock's stopped.

-Never mind the clock...

0:17:390:17:42

CHAIN RATTLES

0:17:480:17:51

-What name?

-Pumblechook.

0:18:010:18:04

Quite right.

0:18:040:18:05

Do you wish to see Miss Havisham?

0:18:050:18:07

-Well, if Miss Havisham wishes to see me!

-She don't.

0:18:080:18:11

Come along, boy.

0:18:110:18:13

Boy!

0:18:130:18:14

Are you frightened?

0:18:310:18:32

STAMMERING: I don't know.

0:18:330:18:35

Go in, then.

0:18:400:18:41

NERVOUSLY: After you, miss.

0:18:420:18:43

Who is it?

0:19:180:19:19

Pip, ma'am.

0:19:200:19:22

Pip?

0:19:230:19:24

Pumblechook's boy,

0:19:240:19:26

come to, er, play.

0:19:260:19:29

Oh.

0:19:290:19:30

Ah, yes. Um...

0:19:320:19:34

Come nearer.

0:19:350:19:36

Let me look at you.

0:19:360:19:37

Look at me!

0:19:440:19:45

You're not afraid of a woman who's never seen the sun since you were born?

0:19:470:19:50

NERVOUSLY: No, ma'am.

0:19:510:19:53

Then come closer.

0:19:530:19:55

Hmm.

0:19:580:19:59

Now, I sometimes have sick fancies.

0:20:090:20:13

And, um, I have a sick fancy that I want to see some play.

0:20:130:20:18

Um, so...play.

0:20:180:20:20

Go on, play. Play.!

0:20:200:20:22

-Are you sullen and obstinate?

-No, ma'am!

0:20:250:20:28

I am very sorry for you and sorry that I can't play.

0:20:280:20:31

But if you complain of me I will get into trouble with my sister,

0:20:310:20:35

so I would play if I could, but it's just so new here.

0:20:350:20:39

Call Estella! Estella!

0:20:390:20:41

Estella!

0:20:410:20:43

Mmm.

0:20:480:20:49

SHE CHUCKLES

0:20:530:20:54

(Your own one day, my dear,

0:20:540:20:57

(and you will use it well.)

0:20:570:20:59

Now. Let me see you play cards with him.

0:21:020:21:05

(But he's a common labouring boy.

0:21:050:21:08

(You can break his heart.)

0:21:080:21:10

What do you play, boy?

0:21:110:21:13

Nothing but Beggar My Neighbour, miss.

0:21:130:21:16

So...

0:21:160:21:18

Beggar him.

0:21:180:21:19

SHE CACKLES

0:21:190:21:22

-PIP: The jack of diamonds. ESTELLA:

-"Jack"!

0:21:360:21:38

He calls the knaves "jack", this boy.

0:21:380:21:40

And what coarse hands he has,

0:21:410:21:44

and what thick boots.

0:21:440:21:47

He's nothing but a stupid, clumsy, labouring boy.

0:21:470:21:50

What do you think of her?

0:21:540:21:55

You say nothing of her.

0:21:550:21:57

I don't like to say.

0:21:580:22:01

Whisper in my ear.

0:22:010:22:03

Hm.

0:22:070:22:08

What do you think?

0:22:080:22:10

I think she is very proud.

0:22:100:22:13

-Anything else?

-I think...

0:22:130:22:15

I think she is very pretty.

0:22:170:22:19

Anything else?

0:22:190:22:21

I think she is very insulting.

0:22:210:22:24

I think I should like to go home.

0:22:260:22:27

What?

0:22:290:22:30

And never see her again?

0:22:300:22:32

I think I'd like to see her again.

0:22:320:22:34

Then you shall.

0:22:340:22:36

Then you shall.

0:22:380:22:39

-But when, when shall I have you here again?

-Today is Wednesday.

0:22:410:22:44

No Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays here,

0:22:440:22:46

no days of the week, no weeks of the year.

0:22:460:22:49

No... Come again after six nights.

0:22:500:22:54

Estella, take him down.

0:22:540:22:56

Feed him.

0:22:560:22:57

"And the Lord said unto...unto..." CLAMOURING

0:23:140:23:17

"...unto Aaron,

0:23:170:23:19

"Thou and thy sons and thy father's house..."

0:23:190:23:24

CHATTER AND LAUGHTER PIP CONTINUES

0:23:240:23:29

Good gracious, what is going on?! Enough! Enough, I say!

0:23:290:23:33

Back to your form, Pip.

0:23:330:23:35

HE SNORES

0:23:350:23:38

Now, let us read together.

0:23:390:23:42

Quietly.

0:23:420:23:45

ALL: "And the Lord said...

0:23:450:23:47

"Unto Aaron..." BELL TOLLS

0:23:470:23:51

"Thou and thy sons..."

0:23:510:23:54

INDISTINCT CHATTER

0:23:540:23:57

I wonder if you might teach me.

0:23:570:23:59

Teach you what, Pip?

0:23:590:24:01

Everything.

0:24:010:24:02

I want to know everything.

0:24:020:24:05

-SHE LAUGHS

-Everything?

0:24:050:24:07

Goodness, well,

0:24:070:24:09

that might take a little time.

0:24:090:24:12

Pip, whatever for?

0:24:120:24:14

Do you know the name of the house, boy?

0:24:140:24:18

It is Satis House.

0:24:180:24:20

Is that Greek or Latin?

0:24:200:24:23

Greek or Latin or Hebrew or all three, for "enough".

0:24:230:24:28

-"Enough House". That's a curious name.

-Don't loiter!

0:24:280:24:32

It meant, when it was given, that whoever had this house

0:24:320:24:35

would want for nothing else.

0:24:350:24:37

They must have been easily satisfied.

0:24:370:24:40

-WOMAN 1:

-Is this him? Is this the boy?

0:24:430:24:45

-None of your business.

-MAN:

-Well! Of all the...

0:24:450:24:47

Will she see us today? We have been waiting!

0:24:470:24:49

-WOMAN 2:

-Waiting all morning!

-MAN:

-Waiting all morning!

0:24:490:24:52

-We only wish to help.

-We only wish to help.

0:24:520:24:54

Miss Havisham's poor relations.

0:24:540:24:56

-She calls them her vultures.

-The little bitch!

-Ignore them.

0:24:560:25:00

-PIP: So are they your relations, too? ESTELLA:

-Certainly not.

0:25:030:25:05

I have no relations.

0:25:050:25:07

-Then Miss Havisham is not your...

-Well?

0:25:070:25:10

-Well, miss?

-Am I pretty?

0:25:100:25:13

Yes. You are very pretty.

0:25:130:25:15

Am I insulting?

0:25:190:25:21

No.

0:25:210:25:22

Well, not so much as last time.

0:25:220:25:25

-HE GROANS

-Why don't you cry?

0:25:250:25:28

Because I don't want to.

0:25:280:25:30

Whom have we here?

0:25:300:25:31

Ah. So you're the boy, are you?

0:25:320:25:36

Well, I have a pretty large experience of boys,

0:25:360:25:39

and you're a bad set of fellows.

0:25:390:25:41

Behave yourself.

0:25:410:25:42

You're to wait here in the ballroom.

0:25:440:25:47

-HAVISHAM:

-What do you think it is?

0:25:550:25:56

A cake.

0:25:570:25:59

A bride's cake.

0:25:590:26:01

Mine!

0:26:010:26:02

Take my hand, walk with me.

0:26:050:26:07

Today is my birthday.

0:26:100:26:13

-Many happy ret...

-I will not have it spoken of!

0:26:130:26:15

No. On this day of the year, long before you were born,

0:26:170:26:22

this heap of decay was brought here...

0:26:220:26:24

We've worn away together.

0:26:240:26:26

Mice have gnawed at it.

0:26:260:26:28

And sharper teeth than mice have gnawed at me.

0:26:280:26:30

When the ruin is complete,

0:26:330:26:35

when they lay me dead in my bride's dress,

0:26:350:26:39

on the bride's table,

0:26:390:26:41

the curse will be finished on him.

0:26:410:26:43

On who, Miss Havisham?

0:26:430:26:45

MURMUR OF VOICES

0:26:450:26:46

Miss Havisham. How well you look!

0:26:460:26:49

-Happy birthday.

-MAN:

-Indeed!

0:26:490:26:50

Ah, the vultures.

0:26:520:26:55

Estella, feed the boy.

0:26:560:26:59

ESTELLA HUMS

0:27:030:27:07

Who are you? Who let you in?

0:27:470:27:51

Who gave you leave to prowl about?

0:27:510:27:53

Estella.

0:27:530:27:54

Estella?

0:27:540:27:55

That witch!

0:27:550:27:56

-Take that back!

-I will not!

0:27:560:27:58

-You will take that back.

-Fight me, then.

0:27:580:28:01

Regular rules.

0:28:010:28:02

Come to the ground!

0:28:020:28:04

HE HUFFS

0:28:060:28:08

HE GRUNTS

0:28:090:28:11

-Fight me, fight me.

-HE GRUNTS

0:28:190:28:22

HE GROANS

0:28:230:28:24

That means you won.

0:28:310:28:33

Honour is satisfied. Much obliged. Good afternoon!

0:28:330:28:36

You are to return the day after tomorrow at noon,

0:28:440:28:47

alternate days after that.

0:28:470:28:49

Expect no reward.

0:28:500:28:52

You may kiss me.

0:28:550:28:57

If you like.

0:28:570:28:58

Now, then, the Kings of England.

0:29:250:29:27

-Henry Ill, Richard...

-Edward I...

0:29:270:29:30

-Edward I

-..II and III.

0:29:300:29:34

-Richard.

-Richard the...

-Richard II.

-Henry the...

0:29:340:29:37

How do you manage it, Biddy?

0:29:370:29:39

Manage what?

0:29:390:29:41

To know so much!

0:29:410:29:43

I suppose I catch it.

0:29:430:29:46

Like a cough.

0:29:460:29:48

HE WHISTLES

0:29:480:29:52

# Old Clem, beat it out, beat it out

0:29:520:29:55

# Old Clem, with a clink for the stout

0:29:550:29:59

# Old Clem, with a... #

0:29:590:30:01

Something wrong, old chap?

0:30:010:30:02

I wish you hadn't taught me to call knaves jacks!

0:30:020:30:05

What's that, Pip?

0:30:050:30:06

I wish my boots weren't so thick and my hands so coarse.

0:30:060:30:09

I wish I wasn't common!

0:30:090:30:10

-'May I tell you a secret? BIDDY:

-I suppose you may.'

0:30:120:30:15

I don't... I don't want to be a blacksmith.

0:30:170:30:21

I want to be a gentleman.

0:30:220:30:24

Oh, I wouldn't if I was you.

0:30:240:30:26

-Aren't you fond of the forge? And Joe?

-Yes.

0:30:260:30:29

Then don't you think you'd be happier as you are?

0:30:290:30:31

I have particular reasons.

0:30:310:30:35

To do with a certain young lady, I suppose.

0:30:350:30:38

Your princess.

0:30:390:30:41

One, two, three, four.

0:30:410:30:44

One, two, three, four.

0:30:440:30:47

BOTH: One, two, three, four...

0:30:540:30:56

One, two, three, four...

0:30:560:30:59

One, two, three...

0:31:070:31:10

Estella.

0:31:100:31:11

What are you doing?

0:31:120:31:14

Teaching Pip to dance.

0:31:140:31:16

Like a gentleman.

0:31:160:31:18

Bring the blacksmith to See me.

0:31:220:31:24

Joe.

0:31:350:31:36

Oh.

0:31:510:31:53

So you are the husband of the sister of the boy?

0:31:530:31:56

-Being that I have been married to your sister...

-Just say yes, Joe.

0:31:590:32:02

-By which I mean to say...

-Joe!

-Yes, Miss Havisham.

0:32:020:32:06

And you have reared the boy

0:32:060:32:07

with the intention of making him your apprentice?

0:32:070:32:10

You know, Pip, as you and I ever were the best of friends,

0:32:120:32:15

and it were look for'ard to betwixt us

0:32:150:32:17

as being calculated to lead to larks.

0:32:170:32:19

The boy has made no objection to the trade?

0:32:260:32:29

-Larks being the great wish of his heart.

-Oh, enough! Estella.

0:32:290:32:32

Um, bring me that purse.

0:32:320:32:34

Yes, um...

0:32:360:32:38

Pip has earned a premium here.

0:32:380:32:41

Here are five and 20 guineas.

0:32:410:32:44

Give it to your new master, Pip.

0:32:440:32:46

Now...

0:32:530:32:55

You are now a blacksmith.

0:32:550:32:57

Goodbye.

0:32:570:32:59

-You are not ashamed of being a blacksmith, are you?

-No.

0:33:040:33:08

-Then you are a blacksmith.

-Goodbye.

0:33:080:33:11

But...

0:33:120:33:13

Am I to come again?

0:33:130:33:15

No. Goodbye, Pip.

0:33:160:33:19

You have been a good boy.

0:33:190:33:21

Goodbye. Goodbye.

0:33:210:33:23

Come on. Let's go.

0:33:290:33:30

Perhaps we shall meet again. One day.

0:33:440:33:48

It seems unlikely.

0:33:520:33:53

Pip. Pip.

0:34:000:34:02

Come on, boy.

0:34:040:34:05

Pip.

0:34:500:34:52

Joe, may I?

0:34:520:34:53

THEY LAUGH

0:34:570:35:00

Biddy, I wish...

0:35:530:35:54

Go on.

0:35:560:35:57

Pip?

0:35:570:35:58

-Biddy, I wish I could fall in love with you.

-Oh.

0:36:030:36:07

-Can I say this to you?

-Don't mind me.

0:36:070:36:12

I wish I could love you and my work

0:36:130:36:15

and that I could settle down with Joe at the forge,

0:36:150:36:17

and that we could be sitting here together,

0:36:170:36:20

two completely different people.

0:36:200:36:22

I do wish I could be content, but...

0:36:220:36:25

You cannot.

0:36:270:36:28

Might you be content with me?

0:36:350:36:36

I might.

0:36:380:36:39

But then, I'm easily pleased.

0:36:400:36:42

Do you think of her very often?

0:36:480:36:50

'CLANGING'

0:37:010:37:03

Pip. Pip!

0:37:040:37:07

Gentleman to see you.

0:37:070:37:08

You are Philip Pirrip,

0:37:100:37:12

more commonly known as Pip, am I right?

0:37:120:37:16

-Yes, sir.

-And this is your brother-in-law...

0:37:160:37:19

-Joseph, or "Joe" Gargery?

-I am that man.

0:37:190:37:21

-And your wife, Mr Gargery?

-Dead, sir. Bad heart.

0:37:210:37:25

Passed away five years since, while on the rampage. I miss her.

0:37:250:37:29

-I miss her...

-Condolences, yes.

0:37:290:37:31

My name is Jaggers. I'm a lawyer in London.

0:37:310:37:33

I'm pretty well known.

0:37:330:37:35

And I have some unusual business to transact with you.

0:37:350:37:38

Joseph Gargery, I am the bearer of an offer...

0:37:420:37:44

to relieve you of this young fellow, your apprentice.

0:37:440:37:48

I am here to inform you that he has great expectations.

0:37:480:37:52

He has come into a handsome fortune,

0:37:540:37:57

and it is the desire of the present possessor of the fortune

0:37:570:38:01

that he be removed from his present circumstances

0:38:010:38:04

and brought up as a gentleman in London.

0:38:040:38:07

Do you have any objections?

0:38:100:38:13

-I don't think so.

-There are conditions, of course.

0:38:130:38:16

The first being that you always retain the name Pip.

0:38:160:38:19

-You've no objections to that, I dare say.

-I have no objection.

0:38:190:38:23

And the second stipulation,

0:38:230:38:24

is that the name of the liberal benefactor remain a profound secret.

0:38:240:38:30

You are positively prohibited

0:38:300:38:32

from making any enquiries into this question. Do you understand?

0:38:320:38:36

I understand.

0:38:360:38:37

-Mr Gargery?

-Hm?

0:38:370:38:40

Mr Gargery, this is for you.

0:38:400:38:42

20 guineas.

0:38:420:38:44

As compensation for the loss of his services.

0:38:440:38:47

Very generous, I think you'd agree.

0:38:510:38:53

If you think money can make compensation

0:38:530:38:56

for the loss of the little orphan what come to the forge and was...

0:38:560:38:58

-It's time for us, Joe.

-Yes, yes, yes, very noble sentiment.

0:38:580:39:01

Very touching, I'm sure. Do you want the money or no?

0:39:010:39:03

-If you're a man, come on!

-Joe!

0:39:030:39:05

Bear-baiting and badgering me in my own home.

0:39:050:39:06

-Come on, I say!

-Joe!

0:39:060:39:08

-Come on, I say!

-Joe! Enough! Enough!

0:39:080:39:09

Joe! CHAINS RATTLES

0:39:090:39:11

Well, Mr Pip, the sooner you leave here, the better.

0:39:220:39:24

Shall we say one week?

0:39:240:39:26

And what will I do in London?

0:39:270:39:29

"Do"?

0:39:290:39:30

What will be my trade?

0:39:300:39:33

My profession?

0:39:330:39:34

A gentleman. You will be a gentleman.

0:39:340:39:37

You will please consider me your guardian now.

0:39:370:39:39

Good evening.

0:39:420:39:43

-PUMBLECHOOK:

-Thing is, I always say, you need your inexpressibles

0:39:470:39:51

in something fine, clingy!

0:39:510:39:53

-A nice lute string, ladies.

-LADIES CHUCKLING

0:39:530:39:55

No point your inexpressibles being in nankeen, now, is there?

0:39:550:39:59

No point at all.

0:39:590:40:00

Nothing clings. Nothing is expressed.

0:40:000:40:02

LAUGHTER CONTINUES Mr Pumblechook.

0:40:020:40:04

Oh, seven times 16, your answer, please.

0:40:060:40:09

-Mr Pumblechook.

-Too slow, too slow.

0:40:090:40:12

-Mr Pumblechook, I have some news.

-Oh?

0:40:120:40:13

I've...

0:40:130:40:15

Well, I've come into some property.

0:40:150:40:17

Oh.

0:40:220:40:23

This is a very sweet article for light summer wear.

0:40:230:40:26

-May I?

-You may.

0:40:260:40:28

Ah... Feel the knap? Do you feel that?

0:40:280:40:31

Yah.

0:40:310:40:32

See how it catches the light? Extra superfine

0:40:320:40:35

and quite in vogue amongst the London gentry. Number five...

0:40:350:40:38

This is you as well.

0:40:400:40:42

This is very you.

0:40:420:40:43

That will be evening and that will be daytime.

0:40:430:40:46

So, best to get them both.

0:40:460:40:48

-What about some gentleman's boots?

-We don't do boots.

0:40:480:40:52

Astonishing!

0:40:550:40:57

Oi! JOE LAUGHS

0:41:000:41:02

For luck!

0:41:020:41:04

A little something to tempt your appetite.

0:41:330:41:35

A cup of tea? You might enjoy the chocolate...

0:41:350:41:38

Pip.

0:41:390:41:42

Come closer, come closer.

0:41:420:41:43

Come join us.

0:41:430:41:45

How handsome you look in your finery.

0:41:450:41:48

You remember my cousin Sarah Pocket.

0:41:480:41:50

She works for me now.

0:41:500:41:52

I employ her.

0:41:520:41:54

Miss Havisham, I...

0:41:540:41:56

-I came to take my leave of you. You see, I've...

-Yes, yes.

0:41:560:41:59

I've seen Mr Jaggers. I know all about it.

0:41:590:42:02

You are adopted by a mysterious benefactor?

0:42:030:42:07

ALL GASP

0:42:070:42:08

Yes, Miss Havisham.

0:42:080:42:10

Isn't that wonderful news, everyone?

0:42:100:42:12

-Yes, quite...

-Wonderful.

0:42:120:42:14

-Wonderful.

-Go now.

-Everyone, go.

0:42:140:42:16

All of you, go.

0:42:160:42:18

Hmph.

0:42:180:42:19

I was, er, hoping that...

0:42:230:42:25

She's abroad, Pip.

0:42:250:42:27

Educating for a lady.

0:42:270:42:29

Far out of reach. Prettier than ever.

0:42:290:42:31

Admired by all who see her.

0:42:310:42:35

Do you feel you have lost her, Pip?

0:42:350:42:38

Be patient.

0:42:380:42:39

I'm sure your paths will cross.

0:42:390:42:41

-I hope so.

-Mm.

0:42:410:42:45

Miss Havisham, I wished to say how grateful...

0:42:450:42:47

Uh-uh-uh-uh-uh. Hush now, Pip.

0:42:470:42:50

You will always keep the name of Pip, you know.

0:42:510:42:54

Go.

0:42:590:43:00

Goodbye, Pip.

He's at the Bailey, getting evidence together.

Whose likenesses are they?

0:44:480:44:49

Likenesses?

0:44:490:44:51

Why, this is their true selves!

Casts made in Newgate, fresh from the gallows.

0:44:540:44:56

Murderer, and a forger of wills.

0:44:580:45:01

Very crafty in particular, this one.

0:45:010:45:03

But the evidence was too strong.

0:45:030:45:05

Not so crafty now, are you, my friend?

0:45:050:45:08

This was his as well. Made a gift of it to me, just before the end.

0:45:080:45:11

They're not worth much, but they're portable,

0:45:110:45:14

and they're property.

0:45:140:45:15

That's my guiding star, Mr Pip.

0:45:150:45:17

-I have no more to say to you!

0:45:300:45:32

Mr Jaggers, have you had any feelings about my claim?

"Feelings"? "Feelings"?

0:45:350:45:37

We'll have no "feelings" here.

I've taken the liberty of enrolling you in a gentlemen's club.

0:47:590:48:02

I was there with my Aunt Sarah on a trial visit.

0:48:030:48:07

Miss Havisham fancied that she wanted to see me play.

0:48:070:48:11

KNOCK ON DOOR

0:48:110:48:12

Clearly she didn't take much of a fancy to me.

0:48:190:48:21

Poor taste on her part but just as well.

0:48:210:48:24

Otherwise, I might have been what-d'-you-called it to Estella.

0:48:240:48:27

Affianced. Betrothed.

0:48:270:48:30

Engaged.

0:48:300:48:31

But, it was not to be.

0:48:320:48:36

I'm very sorry.

0:48:360:48:37

Sorry?

0:48:370:48:39

The girl's a Tartar.

0:48:390:48:41

Hard and haughty and... ..Thank you.

0:48:410:48:44

..Capricious to the last degree.

0:48:440:48:45

Brought up by Miss Havisham to wreak revenge on all the male sex.

0:48:450:48:50

Why should she wreak revenge?

0:48:520:48:54

Lord, Mr Pip. Don't you know?

0:48:560:48:58

Miss Havisham was very rich and very proud, a spoilt child.

0:49:000:49:05

Her mother died when she was young and her father married again.

0:49:050:49:08

His cook, would you believe?

0:49:080:49:11

And they had a son, Arthur.

0:49:110:49:13

-Who was...

-How might I put this?

-...Not entirely legitimate.

0:49:130:49:17

At this point, I might break off and mention

0:49:180:49:20

that in London it's not the custom to put the knife in the mouth,

0:49:200:49:23

-for fear of accidents.

-Sorry.

0:49:230:49:25

And also the fork is not generally used underhand but over.

0:49:270:49:30

-Of course. Of course.

-Do you mind?

0:49:300:49:32

No, not at all. I'm gra'eful.

0:49:320:49:35

-HE MOUTHS

-Er... Ts, Mr Pip.

0:49:350:49:38

You are GRATEFUL.

0:49:380:49:40

Grateful. Sorry.

0:49:400:49:43

Now, um...

0:49:430:49:44

Miss Havisham met a certain man

0:49:450:49:47

and she loved this man, devotedly, passionately.

0:49:470:49:50

Idolised him.

0:49:500:49:52

And soon, they were engaged.

0:49:520:49:55

He persuaded her to buy her half-brother's share of the brewery

0:49:560:49:58

at an immense price, so that when he was her husband,

0:49:580:50:00

he could hold and manage it all.

0:50:000:50:03

Well...

0:50:040:50:05

'The happy day arrived.

0:50:070:50:09

'The wedding dresses were bought, the wedding tour planned out.

0:50:090:50:12

'The wedding guests were invited, my parents among them.'

0:50:120:50:15

The feast was laid out.

0:50:160:50:18

'A great bride cake made.

0:50:180:50:19

'And the groom wrote her a letter.

0:50:210:50:23

'And she received the letter from her brother, Arthur...'

0:50:240:50:28

-As she was dressing for marriage?

-At 20...

-20 minutes to nine.

0:50:280:50:31

'Of course. All those stopped clocks.

0:50:310:50:33

'It was a conspiracy between the groom and her brother,

0:50:330:50:38

'to defraud Miss Havisham and break her heart.'

0:50:380:50:40

No!

0:50:440:50:45

SHE SCREAMS BITTERLY

0:50:450:50:49

And, in that they most surely succeeded.

0:51:020:51:05

So, 'erbert, what's your line of business?

0:51:070:51:10

Well, trade.

0:51:100:51:12

That's where the money is.

0:51:120:51:13

In the future, I shall trade to Egypt for silks and spices.

0:51:130:51:18

Ceylon for elephant tusks.

0:51:180:51:21

But for now? MEN SINGING DRUNKENLY HEARBY

0:51:210:51:24

But for now, I am a clerk in a counting house,

0:51:240:51:27

with a sweetheart whom I can't afford to marry.

0:51:270:51:30

-Is there profit in being a clerk?

-No.

0:51:300:51:32

None whatsoever.

0:51:320:51:34

Not a penny.

0:51:340:51:36

BOTH LAUGH

0:51:360:51:38

You know, I don't much care for the name Mr Pip.

0:51:380:51:40

I'll tell you what I should like. Seeing as we are so harmonious

0:51:410:51:45

and you have been a blacksmith,

0:51:450:51:46

would you mind Handel for a familiar name?

0:51:460:51:49

The Harmonious Blacksmith. It's by Handel.

0:51:510:51:52

HE HUMS

0:51:520:51:54

-Do you mind?

-I would like it very much.

-Good!

-Aren't I the lucky one?

-Herbert, please!

0:54:050:54:08

So pleased to meet you. Shall we?

0:54:470:54:51

Six o'clock, say?

0:54:510:54:53

Give him the money, Wemmick.

As Australia.

0:55:070:55:09

Don't take it personal, Mr Pip. It's professional.

0:55:090:55:11

Only professional.

0:55:110:55:13

I say, if tonight you have nothing better to do,

0:55:130:55:16

why don't you come home to Walworth with me?

0:55:160:55:18

I don't have much to show you but there's a garden

0:55:180:55:20

and one or two curiosities.

0:55:200:55:22

-What?

-Watch this.

0:55:220:55:25

I know what you're thinking.

0:55:250:55:27

It's like living in the country.

-All right, John, my boy. All right.

0:55:430:55:47

This is Mr Pip, Aged P. Not that he can hear a word I'm saying.

0:55:470:55:51

(Just nod away at him, if you don't mind. Nod and wink.)

0:55:510:55:53

-Now, John...

-Nod.

0:55:530:55:55

-Now...

-(And wink. Keep nodding. One more.)

0:55:550:55:57

Nearly time, Aged P. (You keep nodding, I'll heat the poker.)

0:55:570:56:00

Down the stairs, that's right.

CHILDREN SHOUT ALL THREE LAUGH

0:56:190:56:20

I heard it! I heard it!

0:56:200:56:22

-Does Mr Jaggers admire it?

-Never seen it. Never heard of it.

0:56:230:56:27

Never seen the Aged. Never heard of him.

0:56:270:56:29

When I come into The Castle, I leave Mr Jaggers behind.

0:56:290:56:32

And if it's not in any way disagreeable to you,

0:56:320:56:34

you'll oblige me by doing the same.

0:56:340:56:36

-Of course. I understand.

-I will give you one piece of advice, though.

0:56:360:56:41

When you dine with Mr Jaggers tomorrow,

0:56:410:56:44

you take a look at his housekeeper, Molly.

0:56:440:56:46

'His housekeeper? Why?

0:56:460:56:47

'Just take a look at his housekeeper and see, a wild beast tamed.'

0:56:470:56:52

Now, gentlemen! Gentlemen!

0:56:520:56:54

Our generous host, Mr Bentley Drummle.

0:56:540:56:57

ALL SHOUTING INDISTINCTLY

0:56:570:56:59

Oh...

0:56:590:57:01

May the present promotion of good feeling

0:57:010:57:04

ever reign predominant over the Noble Finches of the Grove.

0:57:040:57:07

See, Bentley, I told you, you could do it.

0:57:080:57:10

GLASS SMASHES

0:57:120:57:15

Tell me, Pip. Who is the Spider?

0:57:150:57:18

That blotchy, sprawly, sulky fellow?

0:57:180:57:21

That's Bentley Drummle. The richest young man in England.

0:57:210:57:25

-Is it now?

-He owns most of Derbyshire, apparently.

0:57:250:57:27

Bentley Drummle, you say?

0:57:280:57:30

Most promising.

0:57:300:57:32

Molly.

0:57:320:57:33

Make sure that fellow does not have an empty glass all evening.

0:57:330:57:36

-MAN:

-Come on!

-ALL CHEERING

0:57:430:57:45

-MAN 2:

-My money's on Bentley! I raise you five!

0:57:460:57:50

ALL: Oh!

0:57:500:57:51

A fluke. Pure chance.

0:57:520:57:54

Come, come, Bentley, concede defeat. Pip beat you fair and square.

0:57:540:57:58

I was under the impression that the Finches was a club for gentlemen.

0:57:580:58:02

I can't be expected to compete against country boys.

0:58:020:58:06

What do you mean, Mr Drummle?

0:58:060:58:08

No slight, I assure you.

0:58:080:58:09

In fact, I salute you, Kentish Pirrip!

0:58:110:58:13

You have the arms of a blacksmith!

0:58:150:58:16

Molly, more wine here.

0:58:180:58:20

You talk of strength.

0:58:220:58:24

I'll show you strength.

0:58:240:58:26

Show them your wrists, Molly. Come on.

0:58:260:58:28

-Master, don't!

-Show them both. Show them. Show them.

0:58:280:58:31

-MAN:

-What is that?

0:58:360:58:38

Mm.

0:58:380:58:40

There's power.

0:58:400:58:41

Very few men have the power this woman has.

0:58:430:58:46

Gentlemen, I propose a toast.

0:58:500:58:53

I drink to you, Mr Drummle.

0:58:540:58:57

-To your good health, Bentley!

-ALL MURMUR

0:58:570:59:00

I apologise if anything disagreeable...

0:59:030:59:05

Oh, no, no. That's all right.

0:59:050:59:07

-I do like that Spider fellow, though.

-Do you? I don't.

0:59:080:59:11

No. No, you're right, of course. Stay as clear of him as you can.

0:59:120:59:16

He does have great promise, though.

0:59:180:59:22

Indeed, if I were a fortune teller.

0:59:220:59:25

But I'm not a fortune teller.

0:59:270:59:28

You know what I am, don't you?

0:59:300:59:32

Go to bed, Pip. Goodnight.

0:59:340:59:37

-KNOCKING ON DOOR

-Sir.

0:59:460:59:48

Come on! Come on, sir!

0:59:480:59:50

-Get up!

-PIP MOANS

0:59:500:59:52

Someone to see you, sir.

0:59:530:59:55

Pepper, I've told you I'm not to be woken unless the...

0:59:571:00:00

How are you, Pip?

1:00:011:00:03

I brought you a toasting fork as a present,

1:00:201:00:22

you know, for crumpets and the like.

1:00:221:00:25

-But I see you have no need.

-That's... It's perfect, Joe. Thank you.

1:00:251:00:28

-Tea or coffee, sir?

-Oh! Tea, sir, please, if you don't mind.

1:00:291:00:32

I find the coffee a little powerful.

1:00:321:00:34

-Us two now being alone, sir...

-Sir?

1:00:381:00:41

Joe, how can you call me sir?

1:00:411:00:43

Us two being now alone, Pip,

1:00:431:00:46

I might tell you the reason for me being in the abode of a gentleman,

1:00:461:00:49

which is that I've had a communication with a certain Miss A.

1:00:491:00:54

"Miss A", Joe?

1:00:571:00:58

Miss 'Avisham. She wishes to see you on a matter of great import.

1:01:001:01:03

DOOR OPENS

1:01:031:01:05

Joe, this is my good friend Herbert Pocket.

1:01:051:01:09

-Mr Gargery, I've heard a great deal about you.

-Nice to meet you.

1:01:091:01:12

-Oh? What is there to say?

-A very great deal.

1:01:121:01:16

Now, suppose we have a celebration?

1:01:161:01:19

CROWD CHATTERING INDISTINCTLY

1:01:191:01:21

It takes some getting used to, eh, Joe?

1:01:281:01:31

Now, this place may look a little rough but don't be deceived.

1:01:311:01:34

In my opinion, this is the finest place in London.

1:01:341:01:38

Oh, and the pressed duck is superb.

1:01:391:01:41

Let him take it, Joe.

1:01:461:01:48

Joe.

1:01:561:01:57

How do you find London, Mr Gargery?

1:02:041:02:07

London! What a place! What a place!

1:02:071:02:09

Course, I wouldn't keep a pig in it myself.

1:02:091:02:12

Biddy sends her regards. She's a teacher now, a good one.

1:02:241:02:28

She taught me.

1:02:281:02:30

Fork. F-O-R-K.

1:02:301:02:31

-Knife. N-I-F-E. I know it's not!

-HE CHUCKLES

1:02:311:02:33

-More wine, Mr Gargery?

-Yes, please.

1:02:331:02:35

Joe, please! There's really no need

1:02:371:02:39

to be so conscientious in emptying your glass.

1:02:391:02:41

The rim should never touch your nose, Joe.

1:02:431:02:46

Gentlemen, if you'll excuse me.

1:02:511:02:53

Well, business concluded,

1:03:031:03:05

I'll be off.

1:03:051:03:07

-You're going now?

-Yes, I am.

1:03:071:03:09

-Please, put your money away, Joe.

-No. No, I insist.

1:03:091:03:12

-You will not stay the night?

-No, I won't.

1:03:121:03:14

-Sir!

-HE WHISTLES

1:03:141:03:16

Joe!

1:03:401:03:41

-At least, let me walk you to the coach.

-I'll find my own way.

1:03:421:03:45

But we have barely spoken, Joe. I wished to show you some sights.

1:03:451:03:49

You and me are not two figures to be together in London.

1:03:491:03:52

I'm wrong outside the forge, and the kitchen and the marshes.

1:03:521:03:56

You come sometime and you, put your head in at the window at the forge

1:03:561:03:59

and you'll see Joe the blacksmith, and what larks we'll have!

1:03:591:04:03

But here, Pip, here I am most awful dull.

1:04:031:04:05

So God bless you, dear old Pip, old chap. God bless you!

1:04:061:04:09

You know the way.

1:04:251:04:26

-SHE GASPS

-Pip.

1:04:311:04:33

How do you do?

1:04:331:04:35

You kiss my hand as if I was a queen.

1:04:381:04:40

-You wished to see me?

-Mm.

1:04:411:04:43

Pip.

1:05:031:05:04

I am to be sent to London.

1:05:141:05:16

I am to go on show, myself and the jewels.

1:05:161:05:19

Do you wish to go on show?

1:05:251:05:26

Why ask?

1:05:281:05:29

We have no choice, you and I, but to obey instructions.

1:05:291:05:33

ESTELLA GIGGLES

1:05:341:05:36

I watched you, you know, that day.

1:05:361:05:39

Fighting for my honour.

1:05:391:05:42

I must have been a strange little creature to hide and watch,

1:05:421:05:46

but I did. I enjoyed it very much.

1:05:461:05:48

You rewarded me very much.

1:05:481:05:50

Did I?

1:05:501:05:52

You kissed me.

1:05:551:05:57

Poor Pip.

1:05:581:05:59

You imagine yourself a young knight from a child's story,

1:06:061:06:09

tearing away the cobwebs and thorns, letting in the sunshine.

1:06:091:06:13

Marrying the princess.

1:06:131:06:15

But you must know, Pip, I have no heart.

1:06:191:06:22

I don't believe it. How can there be beauty without a heart?

1:06:221:06:24

Oh, I have a heart to be stabbed in or shot in,

1:06:241:06:27

and if it ceased to beat,

1:06:271:06:29

I should cease to be.

1:06:291:06:31

But there's no...softness there.

1:06:311:06:33

No sympathy.

1:06:331:06:36

Sentiment.

1:06:361:06:38

Nonsense. I've been made that way.

1:06:401:06:43

-Oh, I...

-I am serious, Pip.

1:06:441:06:46

If we're to be thrown together, you must believe me.

1:06:471:06:51

For both our sakes.

1:06:511:06:52

I'm sorry, I cannot.

1:06:531:06:56

I will not.

1:06:561:06:57

Very well. It is said at any rate.

1:06:581:07:00

Come, Miss Havisham will be expecting you at your old post.

1:07:051:07:08

'Is she beautiful?'

1:07:111:07:13

Is she graceful?

1:07:131:07:14

Is she well-grown?

1:07:141:07:16

Do you admire her?

1:07:161:07:18

-Of course.

-Then love her. Love her, Pip.

1:07:181:07:21

If she wounds you, love her. If she fails you, love her.

1:07:211:07:24

If she tears your heart to pieces, as it gets older, it will tear deeper,

1:07:241:07:27

but love her, love her, love her!

1:07:271:07:29

I adopted her to be loved. I bred her to be loved.

1:07:291:07:31

I educated her and I developed her into what she is.

1:07:321:07:36

You know what love is, Pip?

1:07:361:07:38

It is blind devotion.

1:07:381:07:40

It is self-humiliation.

1:07:401:07:42

It is degradation. It is utter submission,

1:07:421:07:44

giving up your heart and soul as I did to that man.

1:07:441:07:47

Miss Havisham!

1:07:471:07:50

Enough excitement for one day.

1:07:501:07:52

Pip, you've been requested to escort Estella to London in the morning.

1:07:521:07:56

I suggest an early night.

1:07:561:07:58

Miss Havisham.

1:08:031:08:04

Shall we take a trip?

1:08:061:08:08

Once round?

Mrs Brandley is to be paid a large sum of money to introduce me to society.

1:09:071:09:12

The jewels and I.

1:09:131:09:15

-We are to be shown to people...

-Hurry up!

1:09:151:09:18

..and people are to be "shown" to us.

1:09:181:09:20

-And may I come and see you?

-Of course.

1:09:201:09:23

Miss Havisham expects it.

1:09:231:09:26

If my time permits.

1:09:261:09:28

I see bills from vintners, bills from jewellers, from bookmakers.

1:09:311:09:36

I suspected you would go wrong, Pip, but really you are excelling yourself.

1:09:361:09:40

-I'll endeavour to show more restraint.

-Oh, do as you will, it's no business of mine.

1:09:401:09:43

Will you make sure that Mr Pip gets the money he requires.

1:09:451:09:47

Thank you, Wemmick? Excuse me.

1:09:471:09:50

Ah. Good day to you, sir.

1:09:511:09:53

Please come into my office. So good to see you again.

Finches, Finches, I would like to raise a glass

to a lady of my acquaintance.

1:10:241:10:26

ALL: Ooh!

1:10:261:10:28

A lady of Richmond.

1:10:291:10:31

A peerless beauty.

1:10:321:10:33

Miss Estella Havisham!

1:10:351:10:37

FINCHES: Miss Estella Havisham! I know that lady.

1:10:371:10:40

Do you? Oh, Lord!

1:10:401:10:43

And you know nothing of her!

1:10:431:10:45

Well, on the contrary, I've had the pleasure of dancing with her.

1:10:451:10:48

-Several times.

-You lie!

1:10:481:10:50

Steady now, Handel.

1:10:501:10:52

Indeed.

1:10:521:10:54

Then perhaps you might care to follow me.

Oh, hard luck. Come on!

1:12:211:12:23

Pip!

1:12:361:12:38

Pip, will you never take warning?

1:12:381:12:40

-How can you do it, Estella?

-What?

-Give your affections to that man.

1:12:401:12:44

All sorts of ugly creatures hover about a lighted candle.

1:12:441:12:47

-Can the candle help it?

-No, but you can.

-Perhaps. If I cared.

1:12:471:12:52

But you MUST care!

1:12:521:12:53

To encourage a man as despised,

1:12:541:12:57

as unworthy and boorish as Bentley Drummle.

1:12:571:13:00

And this is a man who has nothing to recommend him except money...

1:13:001:13:03

Pip, don't let it affect you so.

1:13:031:13:06

I can't help it!

1:13:061:13:07

To give that man the looks and smiles you never give to me...

1:13:071:13:10

Do you want me to deceive you?

1:13:101:13:11

-Do you deceive him?

-Yes!

1:13:131:13:15

Yes, him and many, many other men.

1:13:151:13:17

All men.

1:13:171:13:19

All men but you.

1:13:201:13:22

How'd you get in here?

1:15:321:15:33

Good God.

1:15:411:15:42

What are you...?

1:15:511:15:52

You acted noble, my boy.

1:15:571:16:00

Noble, and I have never forgot it.

1:16:011:16:04

Look, if you're grateful to me for what I did as a boy...

1:16:041:16:07

..it's not necessary.

1:16:081:16:10

-Really. You must understand.

-What must I understand?

1:16:101:16:15

That I cannot renew our acquaintance.

1:16:151:16:18

My life has changed since then.

1:16:181:16:19

Now, I'm glad that you're well and you've repented.

1:16:191:16:23

But really, you must go.

1:16:231:16:25

Please?

1:16:251:16:26

How about a drink first?

..stock breeder, in the New World.

Many a thousand mile off.

1:16:441:16:46

-You've done well?

-I've done wonderful well.

1:16:481:16:51

Seems, you've done well, too.

1:16:511:16:54

Yes.

1:16:541:16:56

Yes. No, I have. Thank you.

1:16:561:16:59

I would like, if I may,

1:16:591:17:01

to give you this gift.

1:17:011:17:02

A token. For old times.

1:17:041:17:06

Before you go.

1:17:111:17:13

There's your gift.

1:17:271:17:28

Might a varmint make so bold as to ask you,

1:17:301:17:33

how you've done well...

1:17:331:17:35

Since we were on them marshes?

1:17:351:17:37

Mmm?

1:17:391:17:40

-I've come into some property.

-And might he ask whose property?

1:17:401:17:44

No, I cannot say her name. There are conditions.

1:17:441:17:46

Conditions? Could I make a guess as to your income?

1:17:461:17:50

Might the first figure be a...

1:17:521:17:54

-A five?

-How could you...

-And you would have had a guardian?

1:17:541:17:58

A lawyer, maybe, with a name beginning with a...a J?

1:17:581:18:02

A J, perhaps, who might have sent me your address

1:18:021:18:05

when I landed in Portsmouth?

1:18:051:18:07

Mr Jaggers, perhaps?

1:18:071:18:11

Yes, dear boy. Yes.

1:18:121:18:14

I've made a gentleman of you.

1:18:141:18:16

I swore that time

1:18:211:18:23

as sure as I ever earned a guinea, that guinea should go to you.

1:18:231:18:27

-No...

-I lived rough that you should live smooth.

1:18:271:18:31

I worked hard that you should be above work.

1:18:311:18:36

I made you!

1:18:381:18:39

-I'm your, your father, Pip.

-No. No, no, no. You are not my father!

1:18:401:18:44

No, no.

1:18:441:18:46

Your second father, then.

1:18:461:18:48

You're my son. No...

1:18:481:18:50

No, you're more to me than any son.

1:18:501:18:53

-Look at you, dear boy!

-HE CRIES

1:18:551:18:58

Look at these lodgings. They're fit for a lord.

1:18:581:19:00

And yeah, this watch and this ring

1:19:001:19:04

and your linen and your clothes.

1:19:041:19:07

And your, your books, too.

1:19:081:19:11

Oh!

1:19:111:19:12

You read them all, have you?

1:19:121:19:14

You shall read them to me...

1:19:151:19:18

And I shall be so proud, to think that I'm the maker of such a man.

1:19:181:19:24

I must sleep, long and sound.

1:19:271:19:31

It's a long time since I slept.

1:19:311:19:33

You'll keep watch, dear boy?

1:19:341:19:36

Cos, look here. Here.

1:19:361:19:39

Caution is necessary.

1:19:401:19:43

I was sent for life.

1:19:431:19:45

It's death to come back. I should be hanged if took.

1:19:451:19:49

You risked your life to come to me?

1:19:491:19:51

That's right, dear boy.

1:19:511:19:53

I... I don't even know your name.

1:19:531:19:57

Magwitch.

1:19:571:19:59

Abel Magwitch.

1:19:591:20:02

-Well, is it true?

-Do not commit yourself.

1:20:201:20:22

Do not tell me anything, I do not want...

1:20:221:20:24

-Is what I've been told true?

-"Told" implies verbal communication.

1:20:241:20:29

You cannot have verbal communication with a man in New South Wales.

1:20:291:20:33

-I was always led to believe...

-Nothing. Nothing.

1:20:331:20:37

You believed what you chose to believe. Mm-hm?

1:20:371:20:40

It's not my responsibility.

1:20:411:20:44

Now, I understand you have an uncle staying with you.

1:20:441:20:47

Yes? Yes?

1:20:481:20:49

-Yes.

-Right.

1:20:511:20:53

May I, suggest you buy him some new clothes,

1:20:531:20:56

advise him to spend most of his time in your rooms

1:20:561:20:59

and perhaps have a haircut.

1:20:591:21:02

Yes?

1:21:021:21:03

Meanwhile, if you are writing to your friend in New South Wales,

1:21:031:21:08

you may choose to send him that.

1:21:081:21:10

The balance of our accounts.

1:21:101:21:12

Mm-hm?

1:21:121:21:14

My services are ended.

1:21:141:21:17

Good day, Mr Pip.

1:21:191:21:20

All that time, in Satis House, I was just a...

1:21:251:21:27

..a mechanical heart to practise on.

1:21:281:21:31

Estella was never meant for me at all.

1:21:321:21:35

And you, my "guardian", have known this all along.

1:21:351:21:38

WEMMICK CLEARS HIS THROAT

1:21:381:21:40

Well...

1:21:411:21:43

You may as well hear this from me as anyone else.

1:21:441:21:47

Um...

1:21:471:21:49

The Spider has played his hand.

1:21:491:21:51

Can I help you?

1:22:061:22:08

-Open this gate, Drummle, or I swear...

-Why, it's the smithy's boy!

1:22:081:22:12

Don't lose your temper, smithy's boy.

1:22:131:22:16

Seems to me you've lost quite enough already.

1:22:161:22:18

Pip?

1:22:301:22:32

-Pip.

-Oh, enough!

1:22:321:22:34

What I have to say to Estella I will say before you.

1:22:361:22:38

But, Miss Havisham...

1:22:391:22:41

When you first took me from my home,

1:22:431:22:45

I came as a kind of servant, to gratify a whim and be paid for it.

1:22:451:22:50

-Yes.

-And when I fell into my mistake

1:22:501:22:51

of imagining that you were my benefactor...

1:22:511:22:55

Yes, I... Let you go on.

1:22:551:22:56

Was that kind?

1:22:591:23:00

"Kind"? Who am I to be kind?

1:23:011:23:04

No, it amused me...

1:23:071:23:09

To punish my relations.

1:23:101:23:12

You were adequately paid, I believe. What else do you want?

1:23:131:23:17

Estella.

1:23:211:23:22

You know I love you.

1:23:281:23:31

I have loved you since I first saw you in this house.

1:23:311:23:33

Foolishly, I had hoped that Miss Havisham

1:23:341:23:37

had meant us for each other.

1:23:371:23:39

Clearly the idea was absurd,

1:23:391:23:42

and I hope Miss Havisham will take what pleasure she can

1:23:421:23:45

in knowing that I am as unhappy as she ever meant me to be.

1:23:451:23:49

These are sentiments,

1:23:491:23:51

emotions that I am unable to comprehend.

1:23:511:23:54

When you say you love me,

1:23:541:23:57

I understand it as a form of words but it touches nothing here.

1:23:571:24:01

-I don't believe you.

-Did I not warn you?

1:24:011:24:03

-Yes.

-Did you not think I meant it?

1:24:031:24:05

-No. It's not natural!

-It is natural in me!

1:24:051:24:08

And yet still I love you.

1:24:081:24:10

I know that I'll never call you mine, Estella,

1:24:121:24:15

yet still, I love you.

1:24:151:24:18

I love you and I beg you do not marry Bentley Drummle.

1:24:181:24:22

Someone else, anyone, but not that brute.

1:24:221:24:25

Too late. It's too late.

1:24:251:24:27

I am going to marry him.

1:24:291:24:31

The preparations are already under way.

1:24:311:24:33

-You can't let Miss Havisham...

-It is my own act.

1:24:351:24:38

Miss Havisham has urged me to wait, to reconsider.

1:24:381:24:41

But I am tired of my life.

1:24:431:24:45

We will do well enough.

1:24:471:24:49

Give me your hand.

1:24:541:24:56

Be happy, Pip...

1:25:001:25:03

This will pass in time. I'll be out of your thoughts in a week.

1:25:031:25:07

Out of my thoughts?

1:25:081:25:11

You're in every thought.

1:25:111:25:13

You're part of my existence.

1:25:131:25:16

Part of me.

1:25:161:25:18

You're in every thought,

1:25:181:25:20

in every line I have ever read since I first came here.

1:25:201:25:23

You're in the river,

1:25:241:25:26

the sails of ships,

1:25:261:25:28

the sea, the clouds,

1:25:281:25:30

the stones of London.

1:25:301:25:32

Until the last hours of my life, you will remain in me...

1:25:331:25:37

Part of the little good, part of the evil.

1:25:371:25:40

And I will always think of the good.

1:25:421:25:44

Goodbye. God bless you.

1:25:531:25:55

So proud,

1:25:551:25:57

so hard.

1:25:571:25:58

I am what you have made me!

1:26:001:26:02

You are my mother, and yet I have never seen your face by daylight.

1:26:041:26:09

Since I was a baby, you taught me

1:26:091:26:10

that there was no such thing as daylight,

1:26:101:26:12

that it had blighted you...

1:26:121:26:14

And it would blight me, too, if I let it.

1:26:161:26:18

Well...

1:26:201:26:22

I am what you made me.

1:26:231:26:25

This is what you made me.

1:26:291:26:31

Estella...

1:26:311:26:34

Come with me now.

1:26:341:26:35

I'd like to help Mr Pocket. He has been a loyal and decent friend

1:27:181:27:22

and I'd like to use the money that remains to do one good thing.

1:27:221:27:24

I'd like to purchase him a position. Without his knowledge.

1:27:241:27:27

Allowing for debts, which are substantial,

1:27:271:27:30

I might add, that's £500, sir.

1:27:301:27:32

-All invested in a friend?

-Yes, yes. Every last penny.

1:27:321:27:35

What's your advice?

1:27:351:27:37

HE SCOFFS

1:27:371:27:38

Well, sir, if I was in the office,

1:27:381:27:40

I would suggest that you take that £500, and choose your bridge.

1:27:401:27:43

There are six to choose from up as high as Chelsea Reach

1:27:431:27:45

and throw the money off it.

1:27:451:27:47

You'll lose it just the same, but it will be quicker and less painful.

1:27:471:27:51

Those would be my sentiments...

1:27:511:27:53

in the office.

1:27:531:27:55

But your home sentiments, your...

1:27:551:27:58

Your Walworth sentiments?

1:27:581:28:00

My Walworth sentiments...

1:28:001:28:04

would be...

1:28:041:28:06

I'm going to see what I can do.

1:28:071:28:09

CHURCH BELL RINGS

1:28:141:28:17

MAN GROANS, CLATTERING

1:28:251:28:27

SHOUTING

1:28:271:28:28

-Let go of me!

-Magwitch!

1:28:301:28:34

Leave him! Magwitch! HERBERT WHIMPERS

1:28:341:28:37

He wishes to buy us a house!

1:28:371:28:39

In Hyde Park!

1:28:391:28:41

A coach, horses...

1:28:411:28:42

Can't you accept?

1:28:421:28:44

How can I?

1:28:441:28:46

I've seen him try to murder a man. He might have murdered you.

1:28:471:28:50

And yet, he risked his life to find you.

1:28:511:28:55

He says I am the son he's never had.

1:28:551:28:58

The idea appals me, Herbert...

1:28:581:28:59

-..but even so, he must not be captured...

-Gentlemen.

1:29:011:29:05

Now, I ain't going to tell you my life like a song or a story book,

1:29:081:29:11

but give it to you short and handy.

1:29:111:29:13

In jail, out of jail. In jail, out of jail.

1:29:131:29:17

That's my life... Until I met my boy here.

1:29:171:29:21

I've been done everything to except hanged.

1:29:221:29:25

I've tramped and begged and thieved, poached...

1:29:251:29:28

Anything that doesn't pay and leads to trouble.

1:29:281:29:30

And then a matter of 20 years ago...

1:29:311:29:34

..when I was out of money and out of luck, not that I'd been in it much,

1:29:351:29:39

I met a man.

1:29:391:29:41

At Epsom Races.

1:29:411:29:43

His name...was Compeyson.

1:29:431:29:46

-Compeyson?

-Compeyson.

1:29:461:29:48

I'm sorry. Go on.

1:29:501:29:52

'A gentleman was Compeyson,

1:29:531:29:56

'a smooth one, good-looking, too, went to boarding school.

1:29:561:29:59

'He was younger than me but he'd got cloth and he'd got learning.

1:29:591:30:04

'He and his missus had a plan...

1:30:041:30:07

'involving the defrauding of a certain lady by her half-brother.

1:30:071:30:11

'It weren't much of a plan to my mind, but I played my part...

1:30:111:30:15

'I played my part in a small way.

1:30:151:30:18

'I can't say I'm proud of it.'

1:30:181:30:19

Well done, Abel.

1:30:191:30:21

-I had a missus, too, at that time.

-You were married?

-No matter.

1:30:251:30:29

That was a dark time, that time with Compeyson.

1:30:381:30:41

Always in debt to him, always under his thumb,

1:30:411:30:44

always getting into danger,

1:30:441:30:46

always working, for years and years,

1:30:461:30:49

till I was his black slave.

1:30:491:30:52

The short of it is, we got committed for felony,

1:30:571:31:01

putting forged notes into circulation.

1:31:011:31:03

"Separate defences," Compeyson says. "No communication."

1:31:031:31:07

HE LAUGHS

1:31:071:31:08

I sold everything but the clothes on my back so I could get Jaggers,

1:31:081:31:12

for all the good it did me.

1:31:121:31:14

Says the counsel for Compeyson, wasn't he the younger

1:31:141:31:17

and well brought up and of a good school? Wasn't he...

1:31:171:31:19

-LAWYER:

-'..A gentleman of a county of Shropshire...'

1:31:191:31:22

A gentleman?

1:31:221:31:24

'Given your persistence and your malign influence...'

1:31:241:31:27

And when the verdict came, wasn't it Compeyson

1:31:271:31:29

as was recommended for mercy on account of good character

1:31:291:31:32

and bad company and all the damn'd lies he'd given up against me?

1:31:321:31:37

And wasn't it me as never got a word...

1:31:371:31:39

-..But to find you guilty.

-Guilty.

1:31:391:31:41

HE GRUNTS

1:31:411:31:42

-Guilty.

-JUDGE:

-Order! Order!

1:31:421:31:45

Guilty.

1:31:451:31:46

For how long?

1:31:471:31:50

14 years.

1:31:501:31:51

He got two.

1:31:531:31:55

And a few months on, he turns up on my prison ship.

1:31:551:31:58

I swore to the Lord, I'd smash his face in...

1:31:581:32:00

And I did. And then, thinking, hoping, that he'd drowned,

1:32:011:32:05

I swam to the shore and was hiding among the graves there,

1:32:051:32:08

envying them that were in them...

1:32:081:32:10

And my boy here found me.

1:32:111:32:13

My boy.

1:32:151:32:17

-Is he dead?

-Who?

-Compeyson.

1:32:201:32:22

'He'll wish I am, if he's alive.'

1:32:221:32:25

And he'll wish he was, if I find him.

1:32:251:32:28

-And the lady he defrauded. Her name was...?

-Havisham.

1:32:291:32:32

Miss Havisham.

1:32:341:32:35

PIP: 'I need you to tell me about Compeyson.

1:32:521:32:55

-JAGGERS:

-'Clever fellow. Dangerous.

1:32:551:32:58

-'Is he still alive?

-To my knowledge, yes.'

1:32:581:33:01

I would strongly advise your uncle to pack his bags.

1:33:011:33:04

If he's found, he will hang.

1:33:041:33:06

And it's fair to presume that Mr Compeyson does not wish him well.

1:33:061:33:09

-FOOTSTEPS APPROACHING

-Abel's come back!

1:33:091:33:11

-You told me he'd never come back.

-Calm down, Molly.

1:33:111:33:13

He mustn't find out, ever. Poor, poor, Abel.

1:33:131:33:15

What did you make me do? It was wicked, wicked!

1:33:151:33:17

Abel will never find out. I'll shall ensure that.

1:33:171:33:20

-Did I not swear at the time...

-You swore that she'd be safe!

1:33:201:33:23

You swore she'd have a brand-new life!

1:33:231:33:25

PIP: 'Jaggers, you must tell me.'

1:33:281:33:29

Who is this "she"?

1:33:311:33:32

Magwitch and Molly had a child.

1:33:391:33:42

'A girl. A pretty thing.

1:33:421:33:44

'But Molly was a fierce one, wild and passionate like her husband,

1:33:441:33:47

'and not a woman to let injustice go unpunished.

1:33:471:33:51

'Compeyson, of course, was safe in prison.

1:33:511:33:53

'His wife, however, was not safe.

1:33:531:33:55

'Molly found her.

1:33:551:33:57

'A terrible crime.'

1:33:571:33:58

BOTH GRUNT

1:33:581:34:01

'Cold-blooded and ruthless,

1:34:021:34:03

'assuming, of course, that Molly did it.'

1:34:031:34:06

But to be guilty and to be found guilty are different things.

1:34:071:34:13

Put the case that a woman accused of murder went to see her...

1:34:211:34:25

..legal adviser...

1:34:261:34:28

..and put the case that same legal adviser

1:34:301:34:32

holds a trust to find a child for an eccentric and rich woman

1:34:321:34:36

to adopt and bring up.

1:34:361:34:38

Put the case that the legal adviser said to the mother of the child...

1:34:401:34:45

Give the child into my hands, I will do my best to get you off.

1:34:461:34:50

If you are saved, your child is saved.

1:34:501:34:53

If you are lost, your child is still saved.

1:34:531:34:57

And the child was your fee?

1:35:001:35:03

And what of Magwitch?

1:35:061:35:08

-The father was told...

-No! You say his name!

1:35:101:35:13

Magwitch was told that the child had died.

1:35:151:35:20

Consumption.

1:35:201:35:22

Put the case that she is now safe and wealthy,

1:35:281:35:30

and about to marry one of the richest men in England.

1:35:301:35:33

And one of the vilest.

1:35:331:35:35

Estella is not the Spider's reward.

1:35:361:35:38

Estella is his PUNISHMENT.

1:35:401:35:42

And you arranged it.

1:35:451:35:47

As instructed by my client.

1:35:471:35:50

Only as instructed.

1:35:501:35:51

'And what did Miss Havisham want with the child?

1:35:551:35:57

'Well, you, er, must ask her yourself.'

1:35:571:36:00

What did you want with the child?

1:36:221:36:23

I just wanted a little girl, to love, and to rear,

1:36:261:36:30

to save from my fate.

1:36:301:36:33

'One night. he brought her here...

1:36:341:36:37

'And I called her Estella.

1:36:381:36:40

'Pip, she was so gentle.

1:36:411:36:43

'She was so beautiful.

1:36:431:36:45

'Pip, believe me, when she first came to me,

1:36:481:36:51

'I just meant to save her from misery like my own.

1:36:511:36:53

'But as she grew more beautiful, I gradually did worse.

1:36:531:36:58

'And with my praises and my jewels and my teachings,

1:36:591:37:04

I...I stole her heart away...

1:37:041:37:07

'And put ice in its place.

1:37:091:37:11

-WHISPERING:

-'I stole her heart away...

1:37:131:37:17

'..And put ice in its place.'

1:37:191:37:21

Pip, are you very unhappy?

1:37:311:37:33

Do you hate me very much?

1:37:351:37:38

I know you must hate me, but if you can ever bear to forgive me...

1:37:381:37:43

SHE SHRIEKS

1:37:441:37:47

SHE SCREAMS

1:37:501:37:53

SHE WHIMPERS

1:38:031:38:05

SHE WHIMPERS

1:38:141:38:16

SHE WHIMPERS, HE COUGHS

1:38:171:38:20

Forgive me. Forgive me. Forgive me.

1:38:411:38:45

Forgive me. Forgive me.

1:38:451:38:47

Forgive me...

1:38:471:38:49

I won't deny there have been too many secrets.

1:39:051:39:09

But who would the truth serve?

1:39:111:39:13

If Estella... were to discover that her father is a convict,

1:39:171:39:22

her mother a murderess,

1:39:221:39:25

would she thank you, do you think?

1:40:201:40:23

-Did you destroy my note?

-I did.

1:40:381:40:41

Best not to leave any evidence. They're on to him, Mr Pip.

1:40:411:40:43

WHISTLING, SHOUTS

1:40:431:40:45

Police.

1:40:451:40:47

The reward on his head is substantial.

1:40:481:40:50

Every copper and cut-throat in London

1:40:501:40:52

is on the hunt for your Antipodean uncle.

1:40:521:40:54

It was all your Mr Herbert and I could do to get him out in time.

1:40:541:40:57

How do we get him away?

1:40:571:40:58

There's a steamer leaving for Antwerp at midnight.

1:40:581:41:02

You and your uncle find a way onto it.

1:41:021:41:04

Portable property, Mr Pip.

1:41:061:41:08

Try and lay hold of portable property.

1:41:081:41:11

All is well, Handel. He's quite safe here. Though he is keen to see you.

1:41:131:41:16

-Goodness! What happened to your hands?

-Where is he?

1:41:161:41:19

Listen, the steamer departs at midnight. We'll intercept it shortly after.

1:41:201:41:23

The further from the city we can get, the safer it will be.

1:41:231:41:26

It's not long now.

1:41:281:41:29

Thank 'ee, my boy.

1:41:291:41:31

-I love you.

-Herbert...

1:41:321:41:34

Clara, I will return your fiance safely, I swear.

1:41:371:41:40

Apologies, Handel. She thinks you have rather a malign influence on me.

1:41:431:41:47

And she's right.

1:41:471:41:49

Herbert, are you sure you want to...

1:41:491:41:51

Handel, I don't think I've ever been more excited in my life!

1:42:131:42:16

"and my candle was nearly burnt out,

1:42:161:42:19

"when, by the glimmer of the half-extinguished light,

1:42:191:42:22

"I saw the dull yellow eye of the creature open...

1:42:221:42:26

"it breathed."

1:42:271:42:29

Something wrong, Abel?

1:42:291:42:31

Not a bit of it.

1:42:311:42:32

To sit here and have my smoke along with my dear boy...

1:42:321:42:36

I had a little child once.

1:42:401:42:42

I didn't tell you afore.

1:42:431:42:45

Pretty little thing. A girl.

1:42:451:42:48

Died while I was in prison.

1:42:491:42:51

But there weren't a day, as I was rotting on that hulk,

1:42:521:42:56

when I didn't think on her face

1:42:561:42:59

and what a dear, pretty thing she were.

1:42:591:43:01

And when I saw you on them marshes,

1:43:011:43:04

well, you brought her to my mind.

1:43:041:43:07

Maybe that's why I took to you so strong.

1:43:071:43:10

I hope I've been a friend to you this little time we've had.

1:43:111:43:15

You speak as if we're parting.

1:43:191:43:21

In an hour, we'll be safe aboard.

1:43:211:43:23

We can no more see to the bottom of the next few hours

1:43:251:43:28

than we can see to the bottom of this river.

1:43:281:43:30

Which I catches in my hand.

1:43:311:43:34

His name is Abel Magwitch.

1:45:271:45:30

I apprehend the man, and call upon him to surrender!

1:47:161:47:17

No.

1:47:171:47:19

Abel!

1:47:201:47:21

HE WHEEZES

1:47:271:47:29

All is lost.

1:47:321:47:34

All is gone.

1:47:341:47:36

You've let the whole thing slip through your fingers.

1:47:361:47:38

-Will he be tried?

-Yes.

1:47:381:47:40

He will be tried and found guilty, too, and hanged.

1:47:401:47:43

The best that we can hope for

1:47:431:47:44

is that he dies before it comes to that.

1:47:441:47:46

The money, the land, are all forfeit to the crown.

1:47:471:47:51

You have nothing, Pip.

1:47:531:47:55

Not a penny.

1:47:551:47:57

Can we keep that from him?

1:47:571:47:59

I'd like him to think I'm a gentleman still.

1:48:001:48:03

I must, amongst you, single out a miserable man

1:48:031:48:07

who, after many years of living a peaceable and honest life in exile,

1:48:071:48:13

decided, in a fatal moment,

1:48:131:48:15

to return to the country where he was expressly proscribed.

1:48:151:48:19

Whatever the motive for his return, there can only be one punishment.

1:48:201:48:26

A punishment he shall share with all of you here before me today.

1:48:471:48:51

Are you in much pain today?

1:49:041:49:06

I don't complain, dear boy.

1:49:071:49:10

If only you had stayed away...

1:49:121:49:14

And not seen this face?

1:49:161:49:18

I... I wish I had been more deserving of your love.

1:49:191:49:23

Hush.

1:49:241:49:26

A gentleman.

1:49:271:49:29

My very own.

1:49:321:49:33

Magwitch, I must tell you.

1:49:371:49:39

Your daughter... whom you loved and lost...

1:49:401:49:43

She lived. She lived, and found powerful friends.

1:49:441:49:48

She is living now.

1:49:491:49:51

She is a lady and very beautiful.

Would you come with us, please, sir?

-I'm sorry for anything that brings you sorrow.

1:55:231:55:28

Well, rest assured I feel none.

1:55:281:55:30

My husband and I made each other perfectly miserable,

1:55:301:55:33

just as intended.

1:55:331:55:34

I have been bent and broken...

1:55:381:55:40

But I hope into a better shape.

1:55:421:55:43

I've been travelling a great deal.

1:55:501:55:52

I had heard that you were here and thriving...

1:55:551:55:58

and I had a desire to see my old friend.

1:55:581:56:01

My only friend.

1:56:041:56:05

When we last met, you said that you would always think of me.

1:56:081:56:12

And I have.

1:56:141:56:16

-That you would think of the good in me.

-Always.

1:56:161:56:18

You are a part of me, Estella.

1:56:231:56:25

"You are in the ships," you said, "and the river."

1:56:251:56:30

I'm glad.
