My Fair Lady 50th Anniversary Watch-Along: Part II

My Fair Lady Watch-Along Event

Hello, everybody!  We'll be watching the second part of My Fair Lady over here tonight, at 8 PM sharp, Central time.  So get on around 7:45 so we can all get ready and set to go.

I recommend we all pause the movie right (supposing you all have DVDs) right when the screen goes black after the Entr'acte bit, and then we'll be ready to put it on play at 8.

For the evening I'm putting the comments on automatic to speed up the process (because I would be totally frazzled if I had to keep up with the conversation AND publish comments, haha) so we can all have a nice chat. :)

If you missed last night but would still like to see the second part with us, feel free to join in tonight!

Also, if you haven't voted for your favorite dress on the sidebar, be sure to do that!  I have pictures of them all in my last post. :)

Aaaand here's a timer so we can all start at exactly the same time.

Jess Dunlap said...

Alas! schoolwork is keeping me from attending the second half! Do have fun!

Miss Jane Bennet said...

*dances in to Entr'acte music* Greetings. :D

Melody said...

Evelyn,
Me too!

Jess,
That's too bad! :(

Miss Jane,
Hiiiiiiiiii! :D Glad you could make it!

Anybody else here?

Miss Jane Bennet said...

*taps fingers* Arrrgh, stupid VHS that takes so LONG to fast-forward...

Melody said...

For everybody's info, I have mine paused at exactly 1:43:00. It's probably different if you have a different DVD, though. The screen just went black but the last note of the Entr'acte music hasn't played. ;)

Melody said...

Miss Jane,
Haha, I feel your pain.
(Oh, look, Shakespeare's a poet...)

Miss Jane Bennet said...

BAHAHAHA. I sense a Scarlet Pimpernel quote coming on...

Ashley said...

Yay!! Ready for night two!! 1:43:00 is when the screen just goes black on my DVD.

Melody said...

Less than two minutes everyone!

Miss Jane- well, it was supposed to be a TABTO quote, but never mind. haha.

Melody said...

*points remote control at DVD player*

Melody said...

And here we go! :D

Ashley said...

Started!

Miss Jane Bennet said...

Ahhhh. Whoops. :P Argh, it's stiiilll goingg, so--could someone tell me where we are in a few minutes?

Melody said...

"How dare you KISS me on the CHEEK!"

Ashley said...

Zoltan Karpathy needs a beard!

Melody said...

Sure, Jane, just let me know. why don't you fast-forward to a certain point at the ball and then I'll tell you when it gets there? :)

Ashley said...

His sash thing is so cool!

Melody said...

Nobody needs a beard, but for once I think he's someone who wouldn't be dis-improved by one. :P

AWWWW Higgins comforted Eliza. :D HE KNOWS HOW TO DO MORAL SUPPORT?!

Melody said...

A cousin of his AND Higgins'? o.O

Ashley said...

So she has sort of garden Bahahaha!!

Melody said...

"The situation is highly explosive!"

Ashley said...

Strange how the announcement music sounds like Why Can't The English!

Miss Jane Bennet said...

Okay, Eliza's ascending the stairs for me...

Ashley said...

The queen has just gone to her platform thing

Melody said...

Jane - the Queen of Transylvania just did her Grand Walk and now everyone's talking.

Melody said...

The prince and Eliza are dancing...

Ashley said...

Yay! I wasn't the only one who thought she looked like a Transylvanian!
Marry that dude! Not Freddy!
Also, I need a dress thy style of Eliza's!

Melody said...

Zoltan's "um wut" face, hahahaha.

Ashley said...

Higgins and Eliza dance so well together! !!

Miss Jane Bennet said...

I do love her dress...the hair is a bit weird, though. Haha.

Melody said...

YAY HIGGINS AND ELIZA ARE DANCING and Miss Dashwood and I ship them temporarily. :P

Melody said...

Her hair looks like a beehive. :P

Melody said...

Miss Dashwood had to be a little late tonight, btw, but she'll be here in a little while. :D

Ashley said...

Colonel Pickering and Mrs. Higgins together!!! Yes!!

Miss Jane Bennet said...

D'awww, cutiessss. :D Ewww, Zoltan. He reminds me of Mr Collins. :P

Ashley said...

Higgins cloak!!

Miss Jane Bennet said...

Eliza's face. :D

Melody said...

POOR ELIZA. I hate this part. Goodness, I would not be keeping quiet all this time if I were her...

Ashley said...

Ahhh, because she was actually the queen of Transylvania!! (Sorry, I didn't catch that, but she looked it!)

Miss Jane Bennet said...

Yezzz, she hardly behaves like a presumptuous insect, does she?

Miss Jane Bennet said...

Pickering's "youuuu" makes me wince inside. Is that cynical and awful of me? :P

Ashley said...

Yavo! (What language is that anyway?)

Melody said...

It WOULD be kind of fun to have people think you were a princess, hahaha.

Miss Jane Bennet said...

Um. Transylvanian?

Ashley said...

It would be kind of fun to have people think you were Hungarian :D

Miss Jane Bennet said...

It would be even more fun if one got any credit for one's hard work...*Lydia-snort*

Melody said...

POOR ELIZA AGHHH.

YES ELIZA THROW THE SLIPPERS

Ashley said...

Audrey Hepburn can sob and get sad/mad really well! Enter Sabrina and A Roman Holiday!

Melody said...

"The creature". Good grief.

Ashley said...

She actually looks like a cat at that point!

Melody said...

Yes, you've behaved badly. MEANLY. Haha.

Miss Jane Bennet said...

Yes, blame Colonel Pickering, Higgins.

Ashley said...

I need to learn to say No like her!

Ashley said...

That's basically how I feel about college/my future :D

Miss Dashwood said...

I AM HERE MY FRIENDS. Temporarily. Haha. My internet is being shnib. Anyway, sorry I'm late. Had a meeting.

Melody said...

She and a Prior Engagement. :P

Miss Dashwood said...

Her coat looks a lot Less Cute when it's open, haha. It has a nicer silhouette when it's buttoned.

Miss Dashwood said...

I WANT TO GO TO BRIGHTON!!!!!!!!!!

Ashley said...

My DVD just skipped :( Can someone let me know when she's at the fireplace?

Miss Jane Bennet said...

Now *I'm* having internet problems. Is it contagious, Miss Dashwood??

Melody said...

I'm glad she's wounded him too. HUMPH.

Miss Dashwood said...

Ashley, Freddy just started singing again.

Miss Jane Bennet said...

So Sherlock Holmes...I mean, Freddy just started singing...am I ahead?

Ashley said...

Thanks Amy!

Miss Jane Bennet said...

Never mind, it seems I'm right on. :D

Miss Dashwood said...

DAHLING YOUR EYES ARE LIKE VIOLETS

Melody said...

Um, Show Me just started, Ashley.

Miss Dashwood said...

(But wut if her eyes AIN'T like violets?)
I think you are supposed to say it anyway.

Miss Dashwood said...

I love how she just shuts him up. :D And he's like, um wut.

Ashley said...

This is the same song that's used in the old Charlie and the Charlie Factory! And I like it. A LOT!

Miss Jane Bennet said...

Sheets AND sheets...bwahahahaha. Her frustrated face when Freddy's singing!

Ashley said...

Thanks Melody! I think I'm right on!

Miss Dashwood said...

The spats on his shoes are so weird and out of place looking. I just noticed them, hahaa.

Miss Jane Bennet said...

"DON'T talk at all!"

Melody said...

Freddy may be a dweeb but at least he doesn't let her make a hole in the river. ;)

Miss Jane Bennet said...

Wow, those shoes ARE odd. (Heh, she and Javert should get together.)

Ashley said...

Since when are you allowed to call her darling?!

Miss Dashwood said...

WAHHHH SAD FLOWERMARKET SCENE. I'm glad she leaves Freddy in the cab though. He'd just be in the way.

Melody said...

Poor Freddy must be so confused...

Melody said...

THIS SCEEEEEEENE. I want everybody to recognize her, sigh.

Miss Jane Bennet said...

This always makes me tear up...her FACE.

Miss Dashwood said...

The Wouldn't it be Loverly reprise is SO DOGGONE SAD. I feel like crying.

Miss Jane Bennet said...

Have a tissue, Miss? :P

Melody said...

Go ahead and cry, Amy. We won't judge. :P

Miss Dashwood said...

And I want to cry SO BAD now that HER reprise is in the Cultured Voice. GAHHHHHHHHHH.

Melody said...

Eliza's hat is so weird though.

Miss Dashwood said...

Sanks for the tissue, Jane. You're a duck.

Ashley said...

Alfred Doolittle makes me laugh :D

Miss Jane Bennet said...

Oh dear, here comes Mr Respeckible.

Miss Dashwood said...

FAHHHHHther?????

Melody said...

She's a duck with a feather on her back. :D

Melody said...

Alfred Doolittle makes *me* sick. :P

Ashley said...

Sadly, I'm wallowing in Transcendentalism and moral reform societies in literature right now. Not fun.

Miss Dashwood said...

I bet his corsage is better than his bride's bouquet. Snort. Ugh, this song annoyyyyys me... I'mma mute it when it comes on.

Miss Dashwood said...

*Bigger, not better. Hahahhahahhahaa.

Melody said...

My least favorite song is coming.

Definitely muting. How long is it again? :P

Miss Jane Bennet said...

"Chuuuuurch?" Annnd there's a warning sign right there to prepare the mute button. :P

Ashley said...

Freddy looks nice in this light!

Miss Dashwood said...

Eliiiiiiiiza, I'M COLD IN THAT TAXI AND I WANT A SNAAAAAACK

Melody said...

I would say we should all f-f it except that would get confusing, haha.

Miss Jane Bennet said...

LALALA CAN'T HEAR YOU ALFRED. Sooo...Melody, I like your profile pic. :D

Miss Dashwood said...

Muted, haha. This song is like ten minutes long. :P

Melody said...

HAHAHA Amy that makes me think of Algy. "I'm all out of muffins." :P

Melody said...

Well thank you, Harriet dear! :D I do too, in fact of point. Haha.

Miss Jane Bennet said...

Ew, drunken revelry. Thank you, filmmakers.

Melody said...

Welp, I'mma see how quickly I can hang up clothes from the dryer. It just buzzed. :P

Miss Jane Bennet said...

Wow, I'm impressed, Miss Woodhouse...*I* would not leave anywhere to hang up clothes. SNORRRT.

Melody said...

Aaaand I'm back and it still isn't over, good GRIEF.

not everything was dry though, haha.

Miss Dashwood said...

oh, we're done. WHEW THAT STUPID SONG.

Miss Jane Bennet said...

Yay for Melody's dryer! XD

Miss Dashwood said...

WELL, I'M DASHED. I'm so picking that up and using it.

Ashley said...

Who told him his appointments before Eliza?

Miss Jane Bennet said...

Tea instead of coffee sounds lovely to me. :D

Miss Dashwood said...

I really like Mrs. Pierce's dress, haha. I would like it in my size.

Melody said...

It procrastinated for me, hahaha.

"Stop being dashed and DO something!"

WAIT DID PICKERING JUST SAY QUITE RIGHT

NO THAT IS NOT QUITE RIGHT

THAT'S SLAVERY

:P

Miss Jane Bennet said...

MRS. PIERCE IS THE BEST.

Miss Jane Bennet said...

BROWN BROWN BROWN.

Miss Jane Bennet said...

Pickering is the definition of social awkwardness...

Ashley said...

If anybody's seen the movie In Search of the Castaways, Colonel Pickering is the captain of the ship in that movie! (It's kind of a little known movie :)

Melody said...

I want to rewrite this song and have it be A Hymn to Her... except I'm no lyricist. Sigh. Just like Edward is no orator. :P

WHY CAN'T A MAN BE MORE LIKE A WOMAN THOUGH.

Miss Dashwood said...

Fun fact: this movie was one of the first to use small personal microphones on an actor during scenes such as this, because Rex Harrison refused to sing his songs in the recording studio like everybody else. He's actually "singing" live in this scene. (I use the word singing very loosely.)

Melody said...

I'VE SEEN IT ASHLEY. :D He also plays about two different characters in Columbo, a police-detective show from the 80's.

Ashley said...

Why can't a man take hints :P

Miss Jane Bennet said...

I always feel like Mrs. Marshall Elliott in this scene.

Ashley said...

Yes, Amy, singing is a very loose when applied to Higgins!

Yay Melody!! I need to check out Columbo!

Melody said...

"Oh yeah, I haven't talked to you for 30 years but can I call in a favor... yeah, thanks."

Miss Dashwood said...

BLAST Mr. Higgins! I'LL miss her! That line's so sweet. And now Col. Pickering will never appear again. haha.

Ashley said...

Bahahahaha Melody!

Miss Jane Bennet said...

"BLAST, *I'll* miss her!" Haha, my sister just said she'd ship Pickering and Eliza if Pickering were younger...I might agree with her. :D

Melody said...

Ohhhh... sad. Bye, Pickering. :(

Miss Dashwood said...

MRS MARSHALL ELLIOTT HAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHA.
Also, I've seen In Search of the Castaways. "Deliiiiightful child. Gaaaaalllant fahhhhther." :P

Ashley said...

Weeping like an overflowing bathtub! A simile I have to use!

Miss Jane Bennet said...

"Weeping like a bathtub overflowing". MUST USE THIS NEXT TIME I WATCH LES MIS.

Melody said...

Yeah, I might ship them if Pickering was younger, too. :D

YES I LOVE MRS HIGGINS

Miss Dashwood said...

I SHOULD HAVE THROWN THE FIRE IRONS TOOOOOOOOO

Ashley said...

Hayley Mill's voice though...

Miss Jane Bennet said...

HAHAHA Ashley...two Simile Uses are better than one. :D

Melody said...

I SHOULD HAVE THROWN THE FIRE IRONS THREEEEEEEE

Melody said...

"Thing" indeed. Henry, shut your dirty trap.

HAHA THE COL PICKERING SPEECH

Miss Dashwood said...

HOWEVER DID YOU LEARN GOOD MANNERS WITH MY SON AROUND
OOOOOH BUUUUUUUUUURRRRNNNNNNNN

Miss Jane Bennet said...

I love that shade of pink in Eliza's dress...YES ELIZA YES MR. PICKERING IS AMAZING. SNAP SNAP SNAP YOU SHOW PROFESSOR HIGGINS.

Ashley said...

No, Colonel Pickering did not treat you like a lady! Did he even talk to you after the ball!!! NO, COLONEL PICKERING IS NOT A GENTLEMAN!!! He talks about you behind your back and laughs at you!!!! (Yeah, I feel strongly about this. I'm even writing a scholarship essay about it :P )

Melody said...

Higgins is so horribly talented at pouting. :P

"I shall be excommunicated!" HAHAHAHA

THE WEATHER AND YOUR HEALTH

OH MRS HIGGINS HOW DID YOUR SON TURN OUT LIKE THAT WITH SUCH AN AWESOME MOTHER

Miss Jane Bennet said...

"If you cannot think of anything nice to say, you will please restrict your remarks to the weather." Heehee.

Miss Dashwood said...

I adore Mrs. Higgins. It would almost be worth marrying Henry to have her for a sassy mother-in-law, you know, Eliza.

... I SAID ALMOST.

Melody said...

The pink is gorgeous and the material is too. :D

Miss Jane Bennet said...

I'm getting a Darcy + Elizabeth right now...awkward silences, bahaha.

Ashley said...

At least Higgins treats everyone the same while he's with them and behind their back!

Melody said...

SO YOU ARE A MOTORBUS

Haha, well, Pickering still treats her a lot better than Higgins. And does behave like a gentleman most of the time.

Miss Jane Bennet said...

I want to put Mr Higgins and Sherlock in a room together...and also Mrs Pierce and Mrs Hudson. They could compare grievances. EHEHEHE.

Ashley said...

"Marry Pickering!" You could get your wish!

Miss Jane Bennet said...

"Or would you rather marry Pickering?" YES ELIZA DOOOO. Or marry some younger clone of him.

Melody said...

SHEETS AND SHEETS!

Here's the speech that convinces me she's not Sweet On Him anymore, haha.

Miss Dashwood said...

Oh, goodness, Ashley, good point about Pickering. I never even thought of that.

Ashley said...

Higgins just got friend-zoned!

Miss Jane Bennet said...

Oh goodness, Ashley, I swear I'm not trying to do this...hahaha.

Miss Dashwood said...

Higgins is all WUT MEN AND WOMEN BEING FRIENDS HOW IS THIS POSSIBLLLLLLLLE

Melody said...

I'm always a bit mad at Pickering in the You Did It scene, haha.

A thick pair of lips, that always cracks me up. :P

Ashley said...

How he says Freddy :D

Miss Jane Bennet said...

"Haa haa HAAAA."

Melody said...

HA, HA, HAAAAA!

"I knew you'd strike me one day!"

GO ELIZAAAAA.

YAY this may be my favorite song. It gives me so much life. :P

Ashley said...

Voice change!! I just snorted :D

Miss Dashwood said...

I adore this song. It's so fun to sing, too.

Miss Jane Bennet said...

Her smug smile in this scene!

Ashley said...

Melody your comment just reminded me of Star Wars!

STRIKE ME DOWN!!! AND YOUR JOURNEY TO THE DARK SIDE WILL BE COMPLETE!

Melody said...

I want to be in that greenhouse and sing this song and wear that dress. And have that much hair. :P

Miss Jane Bennet said...

Yes, I should like that much hair too. :D My short hair is beginning to Irk Me--I understand Fantine better now, ahahaha.
(And good point, Ashley! You're right, the feeling is sort of the same...)

Melody said...

Nope, you said you'd make a Duchess actually.

"You shall not be seeing me again."

He's like, wait wut.

Miss Jane Bennet said...

Annnnd Higgins is just like WAIT WUUUUT.

Aibhilin (Evelyn) said...

I do hope I'm not too fashionably late friends!

Miss Jane Bennet said...

BRAVO ELIZA.

Melody said...

It's braVA, Mrs. Higgins. But yeah.

HAHAHAHA, Amy, remember the dramatic hitting of the mute button... :D

Miss Dashwood said...

I'm sorry but nobody sings this song like Anthony Andrews.

Aibhilin (Evelyn) said...

Alas, the nephew mentioned earlier is still here so it's on in the background.. I'm chasing him around

Melody said...

The street looks so much like a set here.

Hi, Evelyn! We're on "I've Grown Accustomed to Her Face" right now.

Miss Dashwood said...

I doooooo remember the Dramatic Hitting of the Mute Button. I did it so well, too, and was so proud of myself. hahahahahhahha.

Melody said...

You are not sorry, Amy. You're proud of it. ;D

Aibhilin (Evelyn) said...

I'll try and come back in soon! No Etha'klsf;hasafvoac

(He's on my lap

Melody said...

I was proud of you too. And excessively diverted.

Miss Jane Bennet said...

*sigh* Still haven't heard Anthony Andrews sing it. But AA does everything better than everybody else. Except possibly Aaron Tveit.

Aibhilin (Evelyn) said...

Awesome! Thanks Melody! :D

Aibhilin (Evelyn) said...

Aaron Tveitt is amazing

Miss Dashwood said...

Haha, the street IS a set... Hey, Evie! You have a new profile pic, it's so purty!

Aibhilin (Evelyn) said...

Hhahaha yes! Hey Amy!! Yes indeed! I found it and was like oooooooooooh

;afdiuodklasfh.ca,nfsal

^from cousin

Ashley said...

Sorry, I had to go for a minute.

Miss Jane Bennet said...

STOP GIVING ME FEEEELS MR HARRISON.

Aibhilin (Evelyn) said...

Mr Harrison I find you guilty of causing me to have a case of feels

Melody said...

Higgins needs to get things Straightened Out before any kind of real relationship can work though... haha.

Miss Dashwood said...

He may be a jerk but dis song makes me sadddddddd.

Plus all the stuff he said about Freddy is probably true. Hahahahahha.

Miss Jane Bennet said...

Bahaha, this is true. Eliza needs to just find somebody else...nobody in this musical would really work for her, IMO.

Ashley said...

Yeah Evie!!! Also, I missed the Dramatic Hitting of the Mute Button apparently :D

Melody said...

Haha Jane, you and Evelyn keep saying the same things, it's swellissimus. :D

OOH HE'S LISTENING TO HER VOOOOICE

Melody said...

She's like "HE MISSES MEEEEEEEEE HAAAAAAA"

Ashley said...

Does he record everything!! And he wears a fedora!

Aibhilin (Evelyn) said...

Oh indeed! Jane we think alike! :D This is so delightful!! Honestly!!

Miss Dashwood said...

It bugs me SO MUCH that this recording doesn't match what was said at the beginning...

Miss Jane Bennet said...

AHHHHHHHHHH.

Miss Jane Bennet said...

Annnnd I GOT CHILLS.

Miss Dashwood said...

AND THEN SHE TOLD HIM TO GET HIS OWN BLANKED SLIPPERS.
