His position as a revolutionary strengthened his cause, and the owners of the bar, Monsier and Madame Defarge. Each example slightly “recalls to life” a different segment and angle on the story.
#5 The family helped to rescue the doctor, Dr. Manette is probably one of the leading revolutionaries that had been captured. The Defarges themselves are powerful people, regulating the influx of needed materials of food and water.

Mr. Manette himself is also a seasoned veteran, as evident by his rehearsing of his prison cell. In that time, in order to prevent enemy knowledge of upcoming plans, prisoners would recite their “lodging” as to be an answer, to any enemy questions.

Lucie is also trying to use catharsis to help Dr. Manette recuperate from his imprisonment.
