Pygmalion

“Ah—ah—ah—ow—ow—ow—oo! I want to talk proper English.”
“It’s a bet! I can do that within eight months! (But you will be my slave while I teach you.)”
“Ah—ah—ah—ow—ow—ow—oo! It’s a deal.”

(After eight months she speaks like a real lady and is emancipated: good for her, not good for him.)
