to be carried away by smth

быть увлеченным чем-либо

HIGGINS [carried away] Yes: in six months—in three if she has a good ear and a quick tongue—I'll take her anywhere and pass her off as anything. We'll start today: now! this moment!

to be incapable of doing smth

быть неспособным что-либо сделать

to speak in private

to answer back

дерзить, грубить (в ответ)

 LIZA [rising reluctantly and suspiciously] You are a great bully, you are. I wont stay here if I don’t like. I wont let nobody wallop me. I never asked to go to Bucknam Palace, I didn’t.

to be taken aback

быть застигнутым врасплох, озадаченным, опешить

HIGGINS. Of course you do. You’re her father, arn’t you? You don’t suppose anyone else wants her, do you? I'm glad to see you have some spark of family feeling left. She’s upstairs. Take her away at once.

DOOLITTLE [rising, fearfully taken aback.] What!

to blackmail smb

шантажировать кого-либо

HIGGINS. Your daughter had the audacity to come to my house and ask me to teach her how to speak properly so that she could get a place in a flower-shop. This gentleman and my housekeeper have been here all the time. [Bullying him] How dare you come here and attempt to blackmail me? You sent her here on purpose.

to get a word in smth

вставить словечко

DOOLITTLE ["most musical, most melancholy"] I'll tell you, Governor, if you’ll only let me get a word in. I'm willing to tell you. I'm wanting to tell you. I'm waiting to tell you.

to be overwhelmed by smth

быть ошеломленным чем-либо (иногда – быть подавленным)

DOOLITTLE [to Pickering] I thank you, Governor. [To Higgins, who takes refuge on the piano bench, a little overwhelmed by the proximity of his visitor; for Doolittle has a professional flavor of dust about him].

to take fancy to (for) smb

испытывать симпатию к кому-либо

Well, the truth is, I’ve taken a sort of fancy to you, Governor; and if you want the girl, I'm not so set on having her back home again but what I might be open to an arrangement.

to assure smb

уверять кого-либо

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.

to feel low

чувствовать себя подавленным

I want a bit of amusement, cause I'm a thinking man. I want cheerfulness and a song and a band when I feel low.

(not) to have the heart to do smth

посметь/ решиться сделать что-либо

DOOLITTLE. No, Governor. She wouldn’t have the heart to spend ten; and perhaps I shouldn’t neither.

to be a credit to smb

быть гордостью для кого-либо

HIGGINS. A new fashion, by George! And it ought to look horrible!    

DOOLITTLE [with fatherly pride] Well, I never thought she'd clean up as good looking as that, Governor. She’s a credit to me, ain’t she?

MRS. HIGGINS. But you mustn’t. I'm serious, Henry.

to keep to two subjects

придерживаться двух тем

HIGGINS [rising and coming to her to coax her] Oh, that’ll be all right. I’ve taught her to speak properly; and she has strict orders as to her behavior. She’s keep to two subjects: the weather and everybody's health—Fine day and How do you do, you know—and not to let herself go on things in general. That will be safe.

control oneself

сдерживать себя

HIGGINS [impatiently] Well, she must talk about something. [He controls himself and sits down again]. Oh, she'll be all right: don’t you fuss. Pickering is in it with me. I’ve a sort of bet on that I'll pass her off as a duchess in six months.

to be rude to smb

быть грубым по отношению к кому-либо

MRS. HIGGINS. I'm sorry to say that my celebrated son has no manners. You mustn’t mind him.  

MISS EYNSFORD HILL [gaily] I don’t.

MISS EYNSFORD HILL [a little bewildered] Not at all. [She sits on the ottoman between her daughter and Mrs. Higgins, who has turned her chair away from the writing-table].    

HIGGINS. Oh, have I been rude? I didn’t mean to be.

to be puzzled

быть озадаченным, быть в тупике, быть в замешательстве

LIZA But it's my belief they done the old woman in. 

MRS. HIGGINS [puzzled] Done her in?

to take the hint

понимать намек

HIGGINS [rising and looking at his watch] Ahem!

to be up to date

быть современным, быть в курсе

CLARA. Such bloody nonsense!    

MRS. EYNSFORD HILL [convulsively] Clara!    

CLARA. Ha! ha! [She goes out radiant, conscious of being thoroughly up to date, and is heard descending the stairs in a stream of silvery laughter].

to be (un)presentable

быть (не) представительным, (не) презентабельным

MRS. HIGGINS. Oh, quite nice. I shall always be delighted to see him.    

MRS. EYNSFORD HILL. Thank you, dear. Good-bye. [She goes out].    

HIGGINS [eagerly] Well? Is Eliza presentable [he swoops on his mother and drags her to the ottoman, where she sits down in Eliza's place with her son on her left]?

to get smth taken off one's hands

перепоручить обязанность другому, избавиться от чего-либо

MRS. HIGGINS. How does your housekeeper get on with her?

to have a bee in one's bonnet about smth

вбить идею в голову, быть поглощенным какой-либо идеей

MRS. HIGGINS. How does your housekeeper get on with her?  

HIGGINS. Mrs. Pearce? Oh, she’s jolly glad to get so much taken off her hands; for before Eliza came, she used to have to find things and remind me of my appointments. But she’s got some silly bee in her bonnet about Eliza. She keeps saying "You don’t think, sir": doesn’t she, Pick?

to be worn out

быть уставшим, пресыщенным

HIGGINS. As if I ever stop thinking about the girl and her confounded vowels and consonants. I'm worn out, thinking about her, and watching her lips and her teeth and her tongue, not to mention her soul, which is the quaintest of the lot.

to get rid of smth

избавиться от чего-либо

MRS. HIGGINS. Be quiet, Henry. Colonel Pickering: don’t you realize that when Eliza walked into Wimpole Street, something walked in with her?   

PICKERING. Her father did. But Henry soon got rid of him.

to give smth up

бросать, прекращать что-либо

MRS. HIGGINS [rises with an impatient bounce, and returns to her work at the writing-table. She sweeps a litter of disarranged papers out of her way; snatches a sheet of paper from her stationery case; and tries resolutely to write. At the third line she gives it up; flings down her pen; grips the table angrily and exclaims] Oh, men! men!! men!!!

Eliza returns with a pair of large down-at-heel slippers. She places them on the carpet before Higgins, and sits as before without a word.

too much of a good thing

слишком много удовольствий сразу, хорошенького понемножку

PICKERING [stretching himself] Well, I feel a bit tired. It's been a long day. The garden party, a dinner party, and the opera! Rather too much of a good thing. But you’ve won your bet, Higgins. Eliza did the trick, and something to spare, eh?

HIGGINS [in his loftiest manner] Why have you begun going on like this? May I ask whether you complain of your treatment here?

to be anxious about smth

быть встревоженным, беспокоиться о чем-либо

HIGGINS [good-humored again] This has been coming on you for some days. I suppose it was natural for you to be anxious about the garden party.

to sleep it off

выспаться, чтобы потом подумать о чем-либо на свежую голову

HIGGINS. It's only imagination. Low spirits and nothing else. Nobody's hurting you. Nothing's wrong. You go to bed like a good girl and sleep it off. Have a little cry and say your prayers: that will make you comfortable.


ужасный, ужасно, уродливый

Most men are the marrying sort (poor devils!); and you are not bad-looking; it's quite a pleasure to look at you sometimes—not now, of course, because you are crying and looking as ugly as the very devil; but when you are all right and quite yourself, you are what I should call attractive.

to be accused of smth

быть обвиненным в чем-то

LIZA. I want to know what I may take away with me. I don’t want to be accused of stealing.

to hire smth

брать напрокат

HIGGINS [very sulky] You may take the whole damned houseful if you like. Except the jewels. They’re hired. Will that satisfy you?

to run the risk of smth


LIZA [drinking in his emotion like nectar, and nagging him to provoke a further supply] Stop, please. [She takes off her jewels]. Will you take these to your room and keep them safe? I don’t want to run the risk of their being missing.

to go down on one's knees

опуститься на колени

Portion 6

to be in a state

быть в возбуждении, волнении, быть расстроенным

THE PARLOR-MAID [coming further in and lowering her voice] Mr. Henry's in a state, maam. I thought I'd better tell you.

to suspect smb of smth (some improper purpose)

подозревать кого-либо в чем-либо (в нечестных намерениях)

HIGGINS. Of course. What are the police for? What else could we do? [He sits in the Elizabethan chair].    

PICKERING. The inspector made a lot of difficulties. I really think he suspected us of some improper purpose.

to be vexed with smth, smb

быть раздосадованным чем-либо

MRS. HIGGINS. Well, of course he did. What right have you to go to the police and give the girl's name as if she were a thief, or a lost umbrella, or something? Really! [She sits down again, deeply vexed].

to become conscious of smth

осознавать что-либо

to be done for

быть уничтоженным

HIGGINS. What! Ezra D. Wannafeller! Hes dead. [He sits down again carelessly]

DOOLITTLE. Yes: he’s dead; and I'm done for. Now did you or did you not write a letter to him to say that the most original moralist at present in England, to the best of your knowledge, was Alfred Doolittle, a common dustman.

not to turn a hair

и глазом не моргнуть, не подать виду

DOOLITTLE. It ain’t the lecturing I mind. I'll lecture them blue in the face, I will, and not turn a hair. It's making a gentleman of me that I object to. Who asked him to make a gentleman of me? I was happy. I was free.

to provide for smb

содержать кого-либо, обеспечивать средствами к существованию

MRS. HIGGINS. Well, I'm very glad you are not going to do anything foolish, Mr. Doolittle. For this solves the problem of Eliza's future. You can provide for her now.


возмутительный, оскорбительный, вопиющий

HIGGINS. Just the other way about. She threw my slippers in my face. She behaved in the most outrageous way. I never gave her the slightest provocation.

to be affectionate

любящий, нежный, ласковый, заботливый, внимательный

PICKERING [astonished] But why? What did we do to her?  

MRS. HIGGINS. I think I know pretty well what you did. The girl is naturally rather affectionate, I think. Isn’t she, Mr. Doolittle?

to take after smb

быть похожим на кого-либо

MRS. HIGGINS. I think I know pretty well what you did. The girl is naturally rather affectionate, I think. Isn’t she, Mr. Doolittle?    

DOOLITTLE. Very tender-hearted, maam. Takes after me.

to shrug one's shoulders

пожимать плечами

HIGGINS. We said nothing except that we were tired and wanted to go to bed. Did we, Pick?    

PICKERING [shrugging his shoulders] That was all.

MRS. HIGGINS [ironically] Quite sure?

to be conscience stricken

испытывать угрызения совести

HIGGINS [impatiently] But she knew all about that. We didn’t make speeches to her, if that’s what you mean.    

PICKERING [conscience stricken] Perhaps we were a little inconsiderate. Is she very angry?

to be inconsiderate

быть невнимательным

HIGGINS [impatiently] But she knew all about that. We didn’t make speeches to her, if that’s what you mean.    

PICKERING [conscience stricken] Perhaps we were a little inconsiderate. Is she very angry?

to let bygones be bygones

что было, то прошло, забыть прошлые обиды

MRS. HIGGINS [returning to her place at the writing-table] Well, I'm afraid she wont go back to Wimpole Street, especially now that Mr. Doolittle is able to keep up the position you have thrust on her; but she says she is quite willing to meet you on friendly terms and to let bygones be bygones.

to behave oneself

вести себя хорошо, держать себя в руках

If you promise to behave yourself, Henry, I’ll ask her to come down.

to make it up

снова стать друзьями (после ссоры)

Mr. Doolittle: will you be so good as to step out on the balcony for a moment. I don't want Eliza to have the shock of your news until she has made it up with these two gentlemen. Would you mind?

to take smb in

обмануть, провести кого-либо

HIGGINS. Don't you dare try this game on me. I taught it to you; and it doesn't take me in. Get up and come home; and don't be a fool.

to come into some money

унаследовать состояние, разбогатеть

DOOLITTLE. Can you blame the girl? Don’t look at me like that, Eliza. It ain’t my fault. I have come into some money.

LIZA. You must have touched a millionaire this time, dad.

to feel lonely

чувствовать себя одиноко

LIZA. Well, you have both of them on your gramophone and in your book of photographs. When you feel lonely without me, you can turn the machine on. It's got no feelings to hurt.

time and again

много раз, неоднократно, снова и снова

LIZA. Oh, you a r e a devil. You can twist the heart in a girl as easy as some could twist her arms to hurt her. Mrs. Pearce warned me. Time and again she has wanted to leave you; and you always got round her at the last minute. And you don’t care a bit for her. And you don’t care a bit for me.
