Quotes

Jack Pumpkinhead: If his brain's ran down, how can he talk?

Dorothy: It happens to people all the time, Jack.

[regarding headless statues]

Dorothy: Look, Billina, these ones have lost their heads.

Billina: Now, that's what I call just plain carelessness

Billina: We come all this way to see a bunch a stiffs.

Billina: Some place for a chicken coop! How big is this pond anyway?

Dorothy Gale: I don't think it's a pond, Billina.

[gets up and looks around]

Dorothy Gale: I guess it is a pond.

Billina: Hmm, told you so.

Dorothy Gale: Where did all the rest of the water go?

Dorothy Gale: Yeah, where did Kansas go? Ohh, this is some place for a chicken coop.

Dorothy Gale: When did you learn to talk anyway? I thought hens could only cluck and cackle.

Billina: Strange, ain't it? How's my grammar?

Tik-Tok: I have always valued my lifelessness.

Lead Wheeler: You'll be sorry for treating me like this! I'm a TERRIBLE fierce person!

Tik-Tok: I am only a machine. So I can not be sorry or happy, no matter what happens.

Nome: Your Majesty! SHE has returned to Oz!

The Nome King: Good, good. Keep an eye on her.

Nome: [the Nome pauses, hesitant]

The Nome King: Well, what's the matter? What is it?

Nome: She has a... chicken with her.

The Nome King: A CHICKEN?

Jack Pumpkinhead: [Dorothy, Tik Tok, Bellina and Jack are all flying on the Gump] Mr. Gump, can't you fly any faster?

Gump: Not unless one of you wants to jump off.

The Nome King: Why doesn't the sofa go first.

Gump: But I don't have anything to touch with.

The Nome King: You can use your antlers.

Gump: I should have quit when I was a head.

Dorothy: [On her final guess Dorothy is about to guess on a bird statue, but then spots and emerald and chooses that instead] Oz!

Scarecrow: [Restored from ornament form] Dorothy!

The Nome King: [In his throne room the Nome King hears the echo of the scarecrow saying "Dorothy"] Smudge and blazes!

Dorothy: [Back in ornament room] Scarecrow!

Scarecrow: Dorothy.

[the two embrace]

Dorothy: You were green.

Scarecrow: What?

Dorothy: You were a green ornament.

Scarecrow: I was?

Dorothy: Maybe people from Oz turn into green ornaments.

Gump: If I had a stomach, I *know* I would be sick!

Mombi III: Not beautiful you understand, but you have a certain prettiness, different from my other heads. I believe I'll lock you in the tower for a few years until your head is ready. And then I'll take it.

Dorothy: I believe you will NOT!

Nurse Wilson: Lie down.

Dorothy: I'd like to sit up, if I may.

Nurse Wilson: What did your aunt tell you?

Dorothy: To do what you told me, Miss Wilson.

Nurse Wilson: Then, lie down.

[the attendants are strapping Dorothy to the stretcher]

Dorothy: Why do you have to tie me down?

Nurse Wilson: So that you don't fall off.

Dorothy: I came all the way from the farm on a buggy and I didn't fall off.

[They start to wheel Dorothy down the hall]

Dorothy: Did I hear somebody scream earlier?

Nurse Wilson: No.

[They wheel Dorothy through some double doors. Dr. Worley is adjusting his machine]

Dr. J.B. Worley: Hello, Dorothy. How are you?

Dorothy: I wish I wasn't tied down.

Ozma: Why did they bring you here, Dorothy?

Dr. J.B. Worley: And how did you come back from... Oz?

Dorothy: With my ruby slippers.

Dr. J.B. Worley: How did they work?

Dorothy: You put them on and you click your heels three times, and you say "There's no place like home".

Dr. J.B. Worley: Dorothy, where are those slippers now?

Dorothy: I lost them. They fell off on the way back.

Dorothy: This is the old house! The one the tornado blew away. This is how I got into Oz the first time. That used to be my bedroom, and in there was the kitchen... And that's where I landed on the Wicked Witch of the East. But where all the munchkins?

Jack Pumpkinhead: [the trio are assembling the Gump together, but Tik-Tok's brains are running down] Here's a broom Tik-Tok, it'll make a great tail.

Tik-Tok: Excellent. Now we must Gump the head at the front, and tie Jack's feet together.

Jack Pumpkinhead: Right. Tie my feet together

[Jack does so]

Tik-Tok: Bring that mantlepiece to the desk, and then annoint the palms!

Jack Pumpkinhead: Right, annoint the-

[Jack falls due to his feet being tied]

Lead Wheeler: You have to come out sooner or later. And when you do, we'll tear you into little pieces and throw you in the deadly desert!

Dorothy Gale: I haven't done anything to you.

Lead Wheeler: Isn't that a stolen lunch pail in your hand? Isn't that a chicken in there with you? The Nome King doesn't allow chickens anywhere in Oz!

Dorothy Gale: Who's the Nome King?

Lead Wheeler: Who is the Nome King?

[laughs hysterically]

Gump: The last thing I remember is walking through the forest and hearing a loud noise. Now, here I am flying through the air. What am I anyway?

Dorothy: You're a... a thing, with a Gump's head on it. We built you and brought you to life so you can take us to the Nome King; to rescue the Scarecrow.
