You need to be more specific. I'd pick Pip and Joe. Later, Pip tells Joe the truth, and also confesses that he is embarrassed about being a "commoner" because of his attraction to Estella.

Joe reassures him that he is not common, he is uncommon small and an uncommon scholar. Referring to Pip's lies, he adds, "If you can't get to be uncommon through going straight, you'll never get to do it through going crooked."THis tells us that Joe understands Pip. He knows what Pip wants to be and he is able to keep Pip grounded despite his eagerness to become a "gentleman".
