    HIGGINS [coming off the piano restlessly] Oh, Lord knows! I suppose the woman wants to live her own life; and the man wants to live his; and each tries to drag the other on to the wrong track. One wants to go north and the other south; and the result is that both have to go east, though they both hate the east wind.

    LIZA. I won't care for anybody that doesn't care for me.
    HIGGINS. Commercial principles, Eliza.

    PICKERING. I think you ought to know, Doolittle, that Mr. Higgins's intentions are entirely honorable.
    DOOLITTLE. Course they are, Governor. If I thought they wasn't, I'd ask fifty.
    HIGGINS [revolted] Do you mean to say, you callous rascal, that you would sell your daughter for 50 pounds?
    DOOLITTLE. Not in a general way I wouldn't; but to oblige a gentleman like you I'd do a good deal, I do assure you.
    PICKERING. Have you no morals, man?
    DOOLITTLE [unabashed] Can't afford them, Governor. Neither could you if you was as poor as me. Not that I mean any harm, you know. But if Liza is going to have a bit out of this, why not me too?

    IGGINS. I suppose we must give him a fiver.
    PICKERING. He'll make a bad use of it, I'm afraid.
    DOOLITTLE. Not me, Governor, so help me I won't. Don't you be afraid that I'll save it and spare it and live idle on it. There won't be a penny of it left by Monday: I'll have to go to work same as if I'd never had it. It won't pauperize me, you bet. Just one good spree for myself and the missus, giving pleasure to ourselves and employment to others, and satisfaction to you to think it's not been throwed away. You couldn't spend it better.
    HIGGINS [taking out his pocket book and coming between Doolittle and the piano] This is irresistible. Let's give him ten. [He offers two notes to the dustman].

    Most men are the marrying sort (poor devils!); and you're not bad–looking; it's quite a pleasure to look at you sometimes—not now, of course, because you're crying and looking as ugly as the very devil; but when you're all right and quite yourself, you're what I should call attractive. That is, to the people in the marrying line, you understand. You go to bed and have a good nice rest; and then get up and look at yourself in the glass; and you won't feel so cheap.

    Doolittle: either you're an honest man or a rogue.
    DOOLITTLE [tolerantly] A little of both, Henry, like the rest of us: a little of both.
