Pygmallion Storyboard act 4

Storyboard Text

  • What an evening! What a crew! What a silly tomfoollery!
  • Well, I feel a bit tired. It’s been a long day. The garden party, a dinner party, and the opera!
  • Thank God it’s over!
  • But you’ve won your bet, Higgins. Eliza did the trick, and something to spare, eh?
  • I can go to bed at last without dreading tomorrow.
  • Eliza was doing it so well. You see, lots of the real people can’t do it at all
  • It is midnight at Higgins' house. Eliza, Higgins, and Pickering all enter, tired and dressed formally. Eliza is quiet, as Higgins and Pickering recount their day: a garden party, followed by a dinner party, followed by the opera.
  • What the devil have I done with my slippers?
  • There are your slippers. And there. Take your slippers; and may you never have a day’s luck with them!
  •  Higgins says he knew Eliza would be fine, and tells Pickering that he has long been bored with the experiment, after its early phase. Having to go to high society events with Eliza has been irritating for him. He thanks God the experiment is over.
  •  won it. What did you throw those slippers at me for?IYOU won my bet! You! Presumptuous insect! 
  • I’ve won your bet for you, haven’t I? That’s enough for you. I don’t matter, I suppose.
  • Pickering says that Eliza was acting better than some actual noble people, who assumed that "style comes by nature to people in their position," and so didn't bother learning proper behavior.
  • You have caused me to lose my temper: a thing that has hardly ever happened to me before. I prefer to say nothing more tonight. I am going to bed.
  • You’d better leave a note for Mrs. Pearce about the coffee; for she won’t be told by me.
  • Eliza is becoming increasingly upset. Higgins can't find his slippers and Eliza picks them up and throws them at him. She says, "I've won your bet for you, haven't I? That's enough for you. I don't matter, I suppose." Higgins is angry and says that he won his own bet.
  • Eliza regains her composure, but is still upset. She wonders what will happen to her now. Higgins tells her she will be alright, and suggests she marries someone. He offers for his mother to find her someone. Eliza thinks of this as prostitution and says she was above this even in her lower-class life.
  • Higgins is offended at the question, but Eliza says that she has to be mindful of such things, because she is a commoner. She says to Higgins, "There can't be any feelings between the like of you and the like of me." Higgins calls her ungrateful and tells her she has wounded him "to the heart." He leaves angrily and Eliza looks satisfied at having upset him.
