Take this passage...
'Mr Limbkins, I beg your pardon, sir; - Oliver Twist has just asked for more.' There was a general start. Horror was depicted on every countenance.
'For more!' said Mr Limbkins. 'Compose yourself, Mr Bumble, and answer me distinctly. Do I understand that he asked for more, after he had eaten the supper allotted him by the dietary?'
'He did, sir,' replied Bumble.
'That boy will be hung,' said the gentleman in the white waistcoat. 'I know that boy will be hung.' (P.15)
Or maybe look at this gem...
The small teapot and the single cup had awakened in her mind sad recollections of Mr Corney, (who had not been dead more than five-and-twenty years,) and she was overpowered.
'I shall never get another!' said Mrs Corney pettishly, 'I shall never get another-like him!'
Whether this remark bore reference to the husband or the teapot is uncertain. (p.184)
