My Fair Lady (1964)
Wilfrid Hyde-White: Colonel Hugh Pickering
Colonel Hugh Pickering : Are you a man of good character where women are concerned?
Professor Henry Higgins : Have you ever met a man of good character where women are concerned?
Colonel Hugh Pickering : Yes, very frequently.
Professor Henry Higgins : Well, I haven't. I find that the moment a woman makes friends with me she becomes jealous, exacting, suspicious, and a damn nuisance. And I find that the moment I make friends with a woman I become selfish and tyrannical. So here I am, a confirmed old bachelor and likely to remain so.
Colonel Hugh Pickering : I'll have you know, Doolittle, that Mr. Higgins' intentions are entirely honorable!
Alfred P. Doolittle : Oh, 'course they are, guv'nor. If I thought they wasn't, I'd ask fifty.
Professor Henry Higgins : [shocked] You mean to say you'd sell your daughter for fifty pounds?
Colonel Hugh Pickering : Have you NO morals, man?
Alfred P. Doolittle : Nah. Nah, can't afford 'em, guv'nor. Neither could you, if you was as poor as me.
Colonel Hugh Pickering : [on telephone to Scotland Yard] 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!
Colonel Hugh Pickering : Well, I'm dashed!
Colonel Hugh Pickering : Higgins, at a time like this, it's positively indecent that you don't need a glass of port.
