I think the reader gets to judge if Eliza feels she needs Higgins in her life or has evolved past him. Higgins asks Eliza to pick up some cheese and ham yet her reply seems like a final goodbye. The reader can interpret this in a few ways but I tend to think that Eliza has really discovered herself through Higgins's offensive social experiment.
