- "Dead, Mr. Peggotty?" I hinted, after a respectful pause. "Drowndead," said Mr. Peggotty
- "That's not it?," said I. "that ship-looking thing?" "That's it, Mas'r Davy," returned Ham
- And when we came at last to the five thousand cheeses (canes he made it that day, I remember), my mother burst out crying.
- I saw to my amazement, Peggotty burst from a hedge and climb into the cart.
- "He knows me, and I know him. Do you know me? Hey?" said Mr. Creakle, pinching my ear with ferocious playfulness.
- "Let him deny it," said Steerforth.
- "Don't go, Steerforth, if you please. These are two Yarmouth boatmen — very kind, good people — who are relations of my nurse, and have come from Gravesend to see me."
- "Father!" said Minnie, playfully. "What a porpoise you do grow!"
- "I begin life on my own account, and don't like it.
- I am presented to Mrs. Micawber.
- Mr. Micawber, impressing the names of streets and shapes of corner houses upon me as we went along, that I might find my way back easily in the morning.
- The young man still replied: "Come to the Pollis!" and was dragging me against the donkey in a violent manner, as if there were any affinity between that animal and a magistrate."
- "Oh, my lungs and liver, will you go for threepence?"
- The Battle on the Green.
- She always roused him with a question or caress.
- "Oh, thank you, Master Copperfield," said Uriah Heep, "for that remark! It is so true! Umble as I am, I know it is so true! Oh, thank you, Master Copperfield!"
- The Doctor's Walk.
- "I ask an inestimable price for it, Miss Larkins." — "indeed! What is that?" returns Miss Larkins. — "A flower of yours, that I may treasure it as a miser does gold."
- ""Oh, really? You know how ignorant I am, and that I only ask for information, but isn't it always so? I thought that kind of life was on all hands understood to be — eh?"
- ""Presently they brought her to the fireside, very much confused, and very shy."
- ""That is a black shadow to be following the girl," said Steerforth, standing still; "What does it mean?"
- ""Trot My dear Trot!" cried my aunt, in a terrified whisper, and pressing my arm. "I don't know what I am to do."
- "And Mrs. Crupp said, thank Heaven she had now found summun she could care for!
- "Hamlet's aunt betrays the family failing, and indulges in a soliloquy on "blood."
- ""Here," drawing the cloth off with great pride and care, "are two pieces of furniture to commence with."
- "Mr. Micawber in His Element.
- "He was fast asleep; lying, easily, with his head upon his arm, as I had often seen him lie at school.
- "Give me breath enough," says I to my daughter Minnie, "and I'll find passages, my dear."
- "Read it, sir," he said, in a low shivering voice. "Slow, please. I doen't know as I can understand."
- "Take a word of advice, even from three foot nothing. Try not to associate bodily defects with mental, my good friend, except for a solid reason." [Miss Mowcher chastizes David Copperfield].
- Under the Lilac Tree.
- I parted from him, poor fellow, at the corner of the street, with his great kite at his back, a very monument of human misery.
- "Deuce take the man!" said my aunt, sternly, "What's he about? Don't be galvanic, Sir!"
- ""I hardly ever take breakfast, sir," he replied, with his head thrown back in an easy chair. "I find it bores me."
- "You have heard Miss Murdstone," said Mr. Spenlow, turning to me. "I beg to ask, Mr. Copperfield, if you have anything to say in reply?"
- "Papa, you are not well. Come with me!"
- I stood face to face with Mr. Peggotty!
- "I wonder why you ever fell in love with me?" said Dora, beginning on another button of my coat.
- "He caught the hand in his, and we stood in that connection, looking at each other.
- "Holding the pens.
- ""Then, I have got it, boy!" said Mr. Dick.
- "Mr. Littimer tells his story.
- "Oh, the river!" she cried passionately. "Oh, the river!"
- "When I can run about again, as I used to do, Aunt," said Dora, "I shall make Jip race. He is getting quite slow and lazy."
- "And the name of the whole atrocious mass is — Heep!"
- Rosa Dartle sprang up from her seat; recoiled; and in recoiling struck at her, with a face of such malignity, so darkened and disfigured by passion, that I had almost thrown myself between them.
- "Approach me again, you — you — you heep of infamy," gasped Mr. Micawber, "and if your head is human, I'll break it. Come on, come on!" [to Uriah Heep.]
- "It is much better as it is!"
- "I have myself directed some attention, during the past week, to the art of baking."
- They drew him to my very feet — insensible — dead."]
- I found Mr. Micawber sitting in a corner, looking darkly at the sheriff's officer who had effected the capture.
- "The Storm." [Ham Peggotty preparing to swim to the wreck.]
- I walked up to where he was sitting, and said, "How do you do, Mr. Chillip?"
- For an instant, a distressful shadow crossed her face; but, even in the start it gave me, it was gone.
- I took Agnes in my arm to the back of her chair, and we both leaned over her.
- "If a ship's cook that was turning settler, Mas'r Davy, didn't make offer fur to marry Mrs. Gummidge, I'm gormed — and I can't say no fairer than that!"
- "Trotwood, you will be glad to hear that I shall finish the memorial when I have nothing else to do, and that your aunt's the most extraordinary woman in the world, sir!"
- Uncaptioned tail-piece complementing "A Last Retrospective."
