…But all I want is Enry Iggins Ead!
1) Have you no morals, man? 2) Nah. Can’t afford none. Neither could you, if you were as poor as me.
1. Eliza, darling, where are you going? 2. To the river. 1. What for? 2. To make a hole in it.
1. Good afternoon, Professor Higgins. Are you quite well? 2. Am I–? 1. But of course you are. You are never ill. Would you care for some tea? 2., Don’t you dare try that game on me. I taught it to you.
1. Good morning, my good man. Might I have the pleasure of a word… 2. Oh, no no. This is the girl I jotted down last night. She’s no use. I’ve got all the records I need of the Lisson Grove lingo. I won’t waste another cylinder on it.
1. Henry must take Eliza home at once. There’s a language expert here, a sort of imposterologist. 2. I beg your pardon?
1. Henry, if you can’t see just how impossible this whole project is, then I would advise you to give it up, and not put yourself and this poor girl through any more. 2. Give it up?! Why, it’s the most fascinating venture I’ve ever undertaken. Pickering and I are at it from morning till night. It fills our whole lives. Teaching Eliza, talking to Eliza, listening to Eliza, dressing Eliza… 1. What? You’re a pretty pair of babies playing with your live doll.
1. I do hope that you find her, Colnel Pickering. Mr. Higgins will miss her. 2. Mr. Higgins will miss her, eh? Blast Mr. Higgins! I’ll miss her.
1. I-I want to be a lady in a flower shop, instead of selling flowers at the corner of Tottenham Court Road, but they won’t tike me lessen I can speak more genteel. He said he could teach me. Well, here I am. Ready to pay, not askin’ for any favor, and he treats me like I was dirt. I know what lessons cost as well as him, and I’m ready to pay. I won’t give more than a shilling. Tike it, or leave it. 2. It’s almost irresistible. She’s so deliciously low. So horribly dirty. I’ll take it. I’ll make a queen of that draggle-tailed gutter snipe. 3. I washed my face and hands before I come, I did. 4. Eliza? Where the devil are my slippers?
1. May I ask, have you complained of your treatment here? 2. No. 1. Has anyone behaved badly? Colnel Pickering, Mrs. Pearce? 2. No. 1. You certainly don’t pretend that I have treated you badly? 2. No.
1. Now, try it again. 2. The rine in spine sties minely in the pline. 1. No, the rain in Spain stays mainly in the plain. 1. Didn’t I sy that? 1. No, Eliza, you didn’t ‘sy’ that. You didn’t even say that. Now, every night before you go to bed, where you used to say your prayers, you’ll say ‘the rain in Spain stays mainly in the plain’ 50 times. You’ll learn to get further with the Lord if you learn not to offend His ears.
1. Shouldn’t we stand up, gentlemen? We’ve got a bloomin’ heiress in our midst. 2. Would you be looking for a good butler, Eliza? 3. Well, you won’t do.
1. What about the girl? You act as though she doesn’t matter at all. 2. Rubbish, Pickering. Of course she matters. What do you think I’ve been doing all these months? What could matter more than to take a human being and change her into a different human being by creating a new speech for her? It’s filling up the deepest gap that separates class from class and soul from soul. She matters. She matters immensely. (Eliza appears, dressed for the Ball). 1. Miss Doolittle, you look beautiful. 3. Thank you, Colnel Pickering. 1. Don’t you think so, Higgins? 2. Not bad. Not bad at all.
1. What’s this for? 2. To wipe your eyes. To wipe any part of your face that feels moist. And remember, that is your handkerchief, that is your sleeve. Don’t confuse the one with the other if you expect to be a lady in a shop. 3. It’s no use talking to her like that, Mr. Higgins. She doesn’t understand you. 1. Here! You give that handkerchief to me. He give it to me, not to you. 4. Higgins, I’m interested! What about your boast that you could pass her off as a duchess at the Embassy Ball? I’d say you’re the greatest teacher alive if you can make that good. I’ll bet you all the expenses of the experiment, you can’t do it. I’ll even pay for the lessons. 1. Oh, you’re real good. Thank you, cap’n. 2. It’s almost irresistable. She’s so deliciously low. So horribly dirty. 1. I ain’t dir’y. I washed me face and ‘ands before I come, I did.
1. Where the devil are my slippers? 2. Here are your slippers! There, and there! Take your slippers, and may you never have a day’s luck with them!
1. You’d better leave your own note for Mrs. Pearce about the coffee, for it won’t be done by me. 2. Damn Mrs. Pearce, damn the coffee, and damn you. And damn my own folly for having lavished my hard-earned knowledge and the treasure of my regard and intimacy on such a heartless gutter-snipe.
By George, I think she’s got it!
Henry! What a disagreeable surprise.
It’s the new small talk. You do it so awfully well.
No, she’s no relation, No. What? Well, just let’s call her a ‘good friend’, shall we? I beg your pardon! Listen to me, my man, I don’t like the tenor of that question – what we do with her is our affair – your affair is bringing her back so we can continue doing it!
Why can’t a woman be….like me?
You impudent hussy!
You just said you could change half a crown.
All I want is a room somewhere, far away from the cold night air, with one enormus chair. Oh wouldn’t it be loverly!

Aye, E, Eye, Ow, Ooooh
come on Dover, move your blooming ass!
Don’t talk of dreams filled with desire. If you’re on fire, show me. Anyone who’s ever been in love can tell you that this is no time for a chat!
Eliza – where the devil are my slippers?
Eliza, you are to stay here for the next six months, learning how to speak beautifully like a lady in a florist’s shop. If you are good and do whatever you’re told, you shall sleep in a proper bedroom, have lots to eat, and money to buy chocolates and take rides in taxis, but if you are naughty and idle, you shall sleep in the back kitchen amongst the black beetles and be walloped by Mrs. Pearce with a broomstick. At the end of six months, you will be taken to Buckingham Palace in a carriage beautifully dressed. If the king finds out that you are not a lady, the police will take you to the Tower of London, where your head will be cut off, as a warning to other presumptuous flower girls. If you are not found out, you shall have a present of…seven and six to start life as a lady in a shop. If you refuse this offer, you will be the most ungrateful, wicked girl, and the angels will weep for you.
Eliza: I’m a good girl, I am.
Eliza? Where the devil are my slippers?
Get me to the church on time.
Hebrews learn it backwards which is absloutly frietnigng
Here are your slippers and may you never have a days luck with them!
I could have danced all night.
I only know when he began to dance with me, I could have danced, danced, danced all night!
I sold flowers. I didn’t sell myself.
I swallowed one! Doesn’t matter, I have plenty more!
I washed me face and hands before I come, I did.
I washed me hands and face before i come i did!
I’ll be worse than two fathers to you before we’re done.
I’m a good girl, I am!
I’m an ordinary man.
I’m willing to tell you. I’m wanting to tell you. I’m waiting to tell you.
I’ve grown accustomed to her face.

If you can’t appreciate what you’ve got, you better get what you can appreciate.
It’s almost irresisitible. She’s so deliciously low, so horribly dirty.
Just you wait ‘Enry ‘Iggins, just you wait. You’ll be sorry but you’re tears will be too late.
Just you wait, Henry Higgins, just you wait. You’ll be sorry, but your tears will be too late. You will be the one it’s done to, and you’ll have no one to run to, just you wait.
Middle class morality.
Move your blooming ass
Oh we are proud!
Oh, It’s because I called him Captin
Remember that you are a human being with a soul and the divine gift of articulate speech, that your native language is the language of Shakespeare and Milton and The Bible. Don’t sit there crooning like a bilious pigeon.
She’s an owl, sickened by a few days of MY sunshine.
She’s so deliciously low. So horribly dirty.
Someone ‘ead resting on my knee, warm and tender as ‘e can be, who takes good care of me, Oh wouldn’t it be loverly?

The rain in Spain falls mainly in the plain.

Throw the baggage out.
Uh, Pickerng, should we ask this baggage to sit down, or should we throw her out the window?
We want none of your slum prudery here, woman
Well, I’m dashed!

What are you doing here? You promised never to come to Ascot. Go
home at once.
What are you sniggering at, young man? I bet I got it right. Smashing!
When she mentioned how her aunt bit off the spoon, she completely done me in, and my heart went on a journey to the moon when she told about her father and the gin, and I never saw a more enchanting farce than that moment when she shouted ‘Move your bloomin…’
Why can’t a woman be more like a man?
Wih blageh maw the fowuhpah wuh ‘higly c’uh’eh wuh ah aww!
With a little bit of luck.

Women are irrational, that’s all there is to that! Their heads are full of cotton, hay, and rags. They’re nothing but exasperating, irritating, vacillating, calculating, agitating, maddening and infuriating hags!
Words, words, words! I’m so sick of words! I get words all day through first from him now from you! Is that all you blighters can do?!
Wouldn’t it be loverly.
You see, Mrs. Higgins, it’s not how a woman is (something) but how she’s treated. I shall always be a lady to Colnel Pickering, because he always treats me like a lady and always will, but I know that I shall always be a flower girl to Professor Higgins, because he always treats me like a flower girl, and always will.
YOU won my bet? Why, you presumptuous little insect! I won it!
You, dear friend, who talk so well, you can go to Hertford, Heresford, and Hampshire.
Your just a sill girl with a silly flower
