Estella walks with an “air of completeness and superiority” while Pip walks with “youthfulness and submission”. He asks her if she remembers some of the events from his childhood visits there (her climbing on the old whisky casks, making him cry and bringing him meat and drink to eat outside like a dog). She coldly says that she does not remember any of that. This breaks Pip’s heart because these events were so important to him. She tells him that she has no heart – no heart for “softness, sympathy or sentiment.”
