Mrs. Higgins: What is it, Henry? What's happened?
Professor Henry Higgins: [quietly, bewildered] She's gone.
Mrs. Higgins: Well, of course, dear, what did you expect?
Professor Henry Higgins: What... what am I to do?
Mrs. Higgins: Do without, I suppose.
[pause]
Professor Henry Higgins: And so I shall! If the Higgins oxygen burns up her little lungs, let her seek some stuffiness that suits her. She's an owl sickened by a few days of my sunshine. Very well, let her go, I can do without her. I can do without anyone. I have my own soul! My own spark of divine fire!
[storms outs]
Mrs. Higgins: Bravo, Eliza.

The Happiest Millionaire

The Happiest Millionaire

Mrs. Duke: [singing] There are those whose social standing is constantly demanding. Every single thing we do, the public knows... Then there is a lower strata, where propriety doesn't matter. I suppose, there are those, there are those.
Aunt Mary Drexel: [singing] There are those to whom position is a natural born condition, to be worn with ease like comfortable old clothes. Though the nouveau riche deny it, all their money cannot buy it! Class will out. Goodness knows, but there are those.
Mrs. Duke: There are those who grace the pages of the blue book.
Aunt Mary Drexel: Never heard of it. Is it a new book?
Mrs. Duke: Simply anybody who *is* anybody is listed.
Aunt Mary Drexel: Oh, you mean the New York telephone directory.

[Mr. Biddle has challenged the visiting Marines to a boxing match]
Aunt Mary Drexel: It looks as though Anthony might learn an interesting lesson this evening. I'm half tempted to go out there and watch.
Mrs. Cordelia Biddle: Aunt Mary! You forget that Anthony has boxed with champions.
Aunt Mary Drexel: But they were friends, Cordelia, and professionals. These men are not friends, and there is nothing so dangerous as the inspired amateur.
