Quote 7

"Look'ee here, Pip. I'm your second father. You're my son—more to me nor any son. I've put away money, only for you to spend." (39.67)

Magwitch may treat Pip like a long lost friend/brother/son, but Pip doesn't necessarily requite the sentiment—he doesn't value friendships that don't fit into his little vision of the future.

Quote 8

Herbert received me with open arms, and I had never felt before, so blessedly, what it is to have a friend. (41.6)

Herbert is like a friend oasis: he's always there for Pip, no matter how much of a butthead Pip is. Hey, at least Pip pays him back.

Quote 9

"And what's the best of all," he said, "you've been more comfortable alonger me, since I was under a dark cloud, than when the sun shone. That's best of all." (56.21)

See, this is why we can't stay mad at Pip. No matter how hard he tries, he's just a nice guy and a good friend.
