Best Answer

Professor Higgins in Pygmalion by George Bernard Shaw and a great film with Rex Harrison as Prof Higgins. He actually said "By Jove! I think she's got it" because he was referring to Eliza Dolittle and her efforts to speak English like a lady.

Jove is the original name of the Roman god, Jupiter. By proclaiming, "By Jove," one is making a comparable statement to "By God."
