Quote #1

"Yes miss, you are," she cried, and her words were all broken. "Whats'ever 'happens to you—whats'ever—you'd be a princess all the time—an' nothing couldn't make you nothin' different." (7.206)

Even though Sara is penniless, Becky still considers her a "miss." So, is class something that's innate? Or can it be gained and lost, like money?

Quote #2

When she went down to breakfast she saw that her seat at Miss Minchin's side was occupied by Lavinia, and Miss Minchin spoke to her coldly. (8.7)

Uh-oh. As soon as Sara is poor, Miss Minchin moves her away from all the other girls. How rude!

Quote #3

"To think that she was the girl with the diamond mines," Lavinia commented. "She looks like an object." (8.17)

Thanks for the observation, Lavinia. That's a very nice thing to say about someone whose recently been orphaned.
