1 You were married to Eliza's mother.
2 Your stepmother is going to marry me.
3 Eliza's instinct tells her not to marry Higgins.
4 You needn't marry the fellow if you don't like him.
5 I'm going to the church to see your father married, Eliza.
6 That is, to the people in the marrying line, you understand.
7 I'll marry Freddy, I will, as soon as he's able to support me.
8 You shall marry the Governor-General of India or the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland, or somebody who wants a deputy-queen.
9 Eliza, in telling Higgins she would not marry him if he asked her, was not coquetting: she was announcing a well-considered decision.
10 If she is at the end of her youth, and has no security for her livelihood, she will marry him because she must marry anybody who will provide for her.
11 Nevertheless, people in all directions have assumed, for no other reason than that she became the heroine of a romance, that she must have married the hero of it.
12 The weak may not be admired and hero-worshipped; but they are by no means disliked or shunned; and they never seem to have the least difficulty in marrying people who are too good for them.

17 Almost immediately after Eliza is stung into proclaiming her considered determination not to marry Higgins, she mentions the fact that young Mr. Frederick Eynsford Hill is pouring out his love for her daily through the post.
18 Put that along with her resentment of Higgins's domineering superiority, and her mistrust of his coaxing cleverness in getting round her and evading her wrath when he had gone too far with his impetuous bullying, and you will see that Eliza's instinct had good grounds for warning her not to marry her Pygmalion.
