Pip is visiting his parents' graves, where he sits crying. Suddenly, the convict yells at him, telling him to stop crying or have his throat slit. The convict then grabs Pip, shakes him, empties his pockets, takes his bread and promptly begins to eat it. He tells Pip that if he values his life, he will go home, steal a file from Joe's forge, and bring him the file and additional food. Pip promises to return with the items the next morning.
