To summarise from Wikipedia, the story of My Fair Lady is as follows: The story concerns Eliza Doolittle, a Cockney flower girl who takes speech lessons from professor Henry Higgins, a phoneticist, so that she may pass as a lady. In other words, taking a common girl and making her into a proper lady. The lines you refer to are the professor ...

You've obviously watched the Director's Cut, going by the questions you've asked. There are some differences in the script, including this section. To quote the relevant section from the original script: Lefty: Ain't no comparison. Cadillac got more acceleration, more power, more-- better handling, ...

1) The picks he was talking about were bets on dogs, literally. He was betting on dog races. 2) Yes, he's making fun of the shirt being dirty, because it's been worn so often. "Joe Faccia Di Cula" is like "Joey Bag-a-donuts". It's like a reference to a stereotypical Italian.

In that scene, they are comparing the Lincoln, Cadillac, and Mercedes automobiles. One guy says "I'll tell you one thing, my friend. Undisputable. The Lincoln is longer." He is talking about the length of the Lincoln Town Car - he is saying it is longer (has more length) than the other cars. When Al Pacino says "It's longer? Longer like what? Longer ...

Does that mean he has a lot of mistresses Yes, I think that is the most likely meaning. He has a wife, and he is cheating on her with a mistress. But perhaps there are times when he gets tired of the mistress, so he cheats on her (the mistress) with yet another mistress. or that one of Sonny Black's mistresses is a lesbian? That is a possible ...

We don't know. Ultimately though, it's irrelevant. If you look at the script before and after that line: Lefty: ...Whole time Sonny Black's in the can, the whole time... He's got a family, he's got a mistress. He's got a mistress for the mistress. I watched out for them, all of them. Me, I was the only one. Nobody else gave a fuck. He's ...

When Lefty is in the car, he is indeed afraid of being "whacked". He's checking his mirror to see the back seat of the car, so he can keep an eye on everyone in the car and be ready for anything (in the hope he could do something about it). We can see his fear from the script: SONNY Hey, Left, what'cha doing? LEFTY Just checking my part. SONNY ...

Has anyone thought of the chain react of collisions in a three dimensional sense? My guess is that shrapenel would go off in all different directions hitting other satellites at different altitudes and this would naturally snowball into a field of debris at a multitude of different altitudes thus being able to hit them at the varying altitudes depicted in ...

From appearances, and the way he constantly fishes pieces out of his mouth and puts them on his plate and picks his teeth, and also according to online sources (like here and here), it's a horrible, cold piece of leftover steak which he was eating before he passed out drunk. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear to be in the script, where circumstances are a bit ...

Earlier, in the kitchen discussing "empathy", Johnny said, "You see, every day when I'm shaving, I look up a new word." This is a reference back to that scene. The joke is that "Have you been shaving again?" was a substitute for "Are you using the word 'aspiration' / having 'aspirations' because you just looked it up in a dictionary?" and the implications ...

It wasn't about why they couldn't get a permit, it's that they probably didn't even try because they thought it was stupid or didn't feel it was worth the effort. The event you are speaking of didn't happen when they couldn't get a permit (i.e. it's not like they were trying to get some kind of permit in this scene and the cops refused to grant it, and the ...

This actually happens everytime somebody exits the car in the film (and in quite a few other films from the era too). There are two possible reasons for this: Firstly, Hitchcock did love his filming and it's highly possible he felt having the people exit via the passenger door gave him a better shot. In fact, some basic googling shows a general consensus ...

I believe he was asking for some confirmation that what he was saying was coming in loud and clear on the other end. He was wearing a wire designed to transmit his conversation to detectives who were listening in, and if the wire disengaged then wearing it was moot.

This scene is showing that the family is supposed to be fasting at the time. The fasting is part of their annual ritual. However, as a young child, Rory either doesn't understand why he's not allowed to eat, or just doesn't care because he's hungry.

Within the Comics (The Bendis versions at least, which is the most current run of GOTG), groot actually has bulbous, glowing areas as par of his anatomy: so there is a precedent for bioluminosity... By the look of the glowing spores he produces, it is probably to suggest that groot (being a plant) disperses his seeds as by driftseed. There are hundreds of ...

Since it's not in the comics there's no explanation there where one would usually turn. It's not explained in the movie either. I also cannot find any official announcement from the movie creators explaining what they are. All these things mean it's down to interpretation, i.e. your question cannot be answered at this time. My interpretation is that a ...

That is just it, he was in prison. If a convict were to masturbate and orgasm noisily, chances would be very good that he would then be .... requested .... to perform on other convicts. In prison: If you are dominant, you'll be the one doing the .... requesting. If you are submissive, or subservient, or not in a gang, prison either makes one celibate, or ...

Johnny: "I have a cousin that's gay, by the way." Tim: "Most people do." Frankie (shouts): "Ready!" Johnny: "He's a really great guy." Tim: "I'm sure." Johnny: "He just found out he was gay a couple of months ago." Tim: "I'll look him up in the directory. Under the new listings." This dialog was while Johnny was waiting on ...

Donuts are mostly thought of as breakfast food, while beer is usually associated with an afternoon/evening activity. Besides, at the time there were no micro-breweries offering Chocolate Donut Beer; the combination of flavors was pretty offbeat.
