Dorothy: Yes, I guess you're right.

[Dorothy watches the Wicked Witch melt]

The Wicked Witch of the West: [her final lines] You cursed brat! Look what you've done! I'm melting! melting! Oh, what a world! What a world! Who would have thought a good little girl like you could destroy my beautiful wickedness? Oooooh, look out! I'm going! Oooooh! Ooooooh!

The Wizard of Oz: As for you, my galvanized friend, you want a heart. You don't know how lucky you are not to have one. Hearts will never be practical until they can be made unbreakable.

The Tin Man: But, I... I still want one.

Dorothy: [has just arrived in Oz, looking around and awed at the beauty and splendor] Toto, I've a feeling we're not in Kansas any more.

Dorothy: [after a pause] We must be over the rainbow!

[a bubble appears in the sky and gets closer and closer. It finally lands, then turns into Glinda the Good Witch wearing a spectacular pink dress and crown, holding a wand]

Dorothy: [to Toto] Now I... I know we're not in Kansas!

Uncle Henry: Well, howdy, Miss Gulch.

Miss Gulch: [comes into the Gale's yard] I want to see you and your wife right away about Dorothy.

Uncle Henry: Dorothy? Well, what has Dorothy done?

Miss Gulch: What she's done? I'm all but lame from the bite on my leg!

Uncle Henry: You mean she bit you?

Miss Gulch: No, her dog!

Uncle Henry: Oh, she bit her dog, eh?

[Uncle Henry lets go of the gate, it hits Miss Gulch on the backside]

Auntie Em: Almira Gulch, just because you own half the county doesn't mean that you have the power to run the rest of us. For 23 years, I've been dying to tell you what I thought of you, and now... well, being a Christian woman, I can't say it!

The Scarecrow: I've got a plan to get in there.

The Cowardly Lion: Great, he's got a plan.

The Scarecrow: And you're going to lead us.

The Cowardly Lion: Yeah!... me?

The Scarecrow: Yes, you.

The Cowardly Lion: I... I... I gotta get her out of *there*?

The Tin Man: That's right.

The Cowardly Lion: [determined] All right. I'll go in there for Dorothy. Wicked Witch or no Wicked Witch, guards or no guards, I'll tear them apart. I may not come out alive, but I'm going in there. There's only one thing I want you fellas to do.

The ScarecrowThe Tin Man: What's that?

The Cowardly Lion: Talk me out of it.

The Wizard of Oz: Why, anybody can have a brain. That's a very mediocre commodity. Every pusillanimous creature that crawls on the Earth or slinks through slimy seas has a brain. Back where I come from, we have universities, seats of great learning, where men go to become great thinkers. And when they come out, they think deep thoughts and with no more brains than you have. But they have one thing you haven't got: a diploma.

Dorothy: Your Majesty, if you were king, you wouldn't be afraid of anything?

The Cowardly Lion: Not nobody! Not nohow!

The Tin Man: Not even a rhinoceros?

The Cowardly Lion: Imposerous!

Dorothy: How about a hippopotamus?

The Cowardly Lion: Why, I'd thrash him from top to bottomus!

Dorothy: Supposing you met an elephant?

The Cowardly Lion: I'd wrap him up in cellophant!

The Scarecrow: What if it were a brontosaurus?

The Cowardly Lion: I'd show him who was king of the forest!

The Wizard of Oz: [to the Lion] As for you, my fine friend, you're a victim of disorganized thinking. You are under the unfortunate delusion that simply because you run away from danger, you have no courage. You're confusing courage with wisdom.

The Cowardly Lion: Courage! What makes a king out of a slave? Courage! What makes the flag on the mast to wave? Courage! What makes the elephant charge his tusk in the misty mist, or the dusky dusk? What makes the muskrat guard his musk? Courage! What makes the sphinx the seventh wonder? Courage! What makes the dawn come up like thunder? Courage! What makes the Hottentot so hot? What puts the "ape" in apricot? What have they got that I ain't got?

Dorothy: Who said that?

[Toto barks at scarecrow]

Dorothy: Don't be silly, Toto. Scarecrows don't talk.

The Scarecrow: [points other way] It's pleasant down that way, too.

Dorothy: That's funny. Wasn't he pointing the other way?

The Scarecrow: [points both ways] Of course, some people do go both ways.

The Scarecrow: Don't stand there talking! Put me together! We've got to find Dorothy!

Dorothy: My goodness, what a fuss you're making! Well naturally, when you go around picking on things weaker than you are, why, you're nothing but a great big coward!

The Cowardly Lion: [crying] You're right, I am a coward! I haven't any courage at all. I even scare myself.

[sobs]

The Cowardly Lion: Look at the circles under my eyes, I haven't slept in weeks!

The Tin Man: Why don't you try counting sheep?

The Cowardly Lion: That doesn't do any good, I'm *afraid* of 'em!

The Tin Man: What have you learned, Dorothy?

Dorothy: Well, I - I think that it - it wasn't enough to just want to see Uncle Henry and Auntie Em - and it's that - if I ever go looking for my heart's desire again, I won't look any further than my own back yard. Because if it isn't there, I never really lost it to begin with! Is that right?

Auntie Em: Now, you just help us out today and find yourself a place where you won't get into any trouble!

Dorothy: Someplace where there isn't any trouble. Do you suppose there is such a place, Toto? There must be. It's not a place you can get to by a boat or a train. It's far, far away. Behind the moon, beyond the rain...

[sings]

Dorothy: Somewhere, over the rainbow, way up high, there's a land that I heard of once in a lullaby. Somewhere, over the rainbow, skies are blue... and the dreams that you dare to dream really do come true. Someday I'll wish upon a star and wake up where the clouds are far behind me... where troubles melt like lemon drops, away above the chimney tops, that's where you'll find me... Somewhere, over the rainbow, bluebirds fly. Birds fly over the rainbow... why, then, oh why can't I? If happy little bluebirds fly beyond the rainbow... why oh why can't I?

Captain of the Winkie Guard: [after the Wicked Witch has melted] She's... She's dead. You killed her.

Dorothy: I didn't mean to kill her. Really, I didn't. It's just that he was on fire.

Captain of the Winkie Guard: Hail to Dorothy! The Wicked Witch is dead!

The Winkies: [all kneel before Dorothy] *Hail*! Hail to Dorothy! The Wicked Witch is dead!

Dorothy: The broom! May we have it?

Captain of the Winkie Guard: [hands Dorothy the broomstick] Please. And take it with you.

Dorothy: Oh, thank you so much! Now we can go back to the Wizard, and tell him the Wicked Witch is dead!

Dorothy: [sings] It really was no miracle. What happened was just this: the wind began to switch, the house, to pitch! And suddenly the hinges started to unhitch. Just then, the Witch, to satisfy an itch, went flying on her broomstick, thumbing for a hitch!

Munchkin: [singing] And ooh, what happened then was rich!

Munchkins: [singing] The house began to pitch, the kitchen took a slitch! It landed on the Wicked Witch in the middle of a ditch! Which, was not a happy si-tu-ation for the Wicked Witch!

The Cowardly Lion: Come on! We gotta get her out! Open the door!

Dorothy: Oh hurry, please, hurry! The hourglass is almost empty!

Dorothy: Goodbye, Lion. You know, I know it isn't right, but I'm going to miss the way you used to holler for help before you found your courage.

The Cowardly Lion: [tearfully] I never would've found it, if it hadn't been for you...

Angry Apple Tree: What do you think you're doing?

Dorothy: We've been walking a long ways and I was hungry and... did you say something?

Angry Apple Tree: She was hungry!

Apple Tree: [Repeating after The Angry Apple Tree] She was hungry!

Angry Apple Tree: Well, how would you like to have someone come along and pick something off of you?

Dorothy: Oh, dear! I keep forgetting I'm not in Kansas!

The Scarecrow: [disparagingly] Come along, Dorothy. You don't want any of *those* apples! Hmph!

Angry Apple Tree: Are you hinting my apples aren't what they ought to be?

The Scarecrow: [sarcastically] Oh no! It's just that she doesn't like little green worms!

Angry Apple Tree: Oh you!

[the trees start shaking their branches angrily]

The Scarecrow: [in Dorothy's ear] I'll show you how to get apples!

[taunts the trees by making a face; the first tree throws an apple that knocks him down]

Dorothy: [concerned] Oh!

[the trees continue throwing apples]

Dorothy: [Toto is held hostage by the Witch and one of her monkeys] What are you gonna do to my dog? Give him back to me!

The Wicked Witch of the West: All in good time, my little pretty. All in good time.

Dorothy: Oh, please give me back my dog!

The Wicked Witch of the West: Certainly, certainly. When you give me those slippers.

Dorothy: But the Good Witch of the North told me not to!

The Wicked Witch of the West: Very well.

[to Flying Monkey]

The Wicked Witch of the West: Throw that basket in the river and drown him!

Dorothy: NO! No no, here... you can have your old slippers, but give me back Toto!

The Wicked Witch of the West: That's a good little girl. I knew you'd see reason.

[stooped to take the shoes but fire leaps out and burns her]

The Wicked Witch of the West: Aagh!

Dorothy: Oh, I'm sorry! I didn't do it! Can I still have my dog?

The Wicked Witch of the West: No! Fool that I am! I should have remembered; those slippers will never come off, as long as you're alive. But that's not what's worrying me. It's *how* to do it. These things must be done *delicately*, or you hurt the spell.

[Toto leaps from the basket and runs for it]

Dorothy: Run Toto, RUN!

The Wicked Witch of the West: Catch him!

[Guards throw spears at Toto]

Dorothy: Run, Toto, run! Run Toto, run! He got away! He got away!

The Wicked Witch of the West: Which is more than you will! Drat you and your dog! You've been more trouble to me than you're worth one way or another, but it'll soon be over now!

[grabs an hourglass and turns it over]

The Wicked Witch of the West: See that? That's how much longer you've got to be alive! And it isn't long, my pretty, it isn't long! I can't wait forever to get those shoes!

Dorothy: Oil can...? What... Oh! Here it is! Where do you want to be oiled first?

The Tin Man: No, it feels wonderful. I've held that axe up for ages.

The Cowardly Lion: [singing] If I were king of the fore-e-e-est / Not queen, not duke, not prince / My regal robes of the fore-e-e-est / Would be satin, not cotton, not chintz / I'd command each thing, whether fish or fowl / With a r-r-ruff and a r-r-ruff, and a royal growl - R-R-Ruff! / As I click my heels / All the trees would kneel / And the mountains bow / And the bulls kowtow / And the sparrow would take wing / If I, if I were ki-i-i-i-ng! / The rabbits would show respect to me / The chipmunks genuflect to me / Though my tail would lash / I would show compash / For every underling / If I, if I were king / Just ki-i-i-i-ing!

Dorothy: Who me? I'm not a witch at all. I'm Dorothy Gale, from Kansas.

Glinda: Oh. Well, is that the witch?

[pointing to Toto]

Dorothy: Who, Toto? Toto's my dog!

Glinda: [laughs] Well, I'm a little muddled! The Munchkins called me because a new witch has just dropped a house on the Wicked Witch of the East. And there's the house, and here you are, and that's all that's left of the Wicked Witch of the East.

[she points to a pair of legs sticking out from under the house; Dorothy gasps]

Glinda: So, what the Munchkins want to know is, are you a good witch, or a bad witch?

Dorothy: But, I've already told you, I'm not a witch at all! Witches are old, and ugly!

[they hear giggles]

Dorothy: What was that?

Glinda: The Munchkins. They're laughing because, I *am* a Witch. I'm Glinda, the Witch of the North.

Dorothy: You are?

[she curtsies]

Dorothy: Oh, I beg your pardon! But, I've never heard of a beautiful witch before.

DorothyThe ScarecrowThe Cowardly LionThe Tin Man: [all four together] We did!

The Gatekeeper: Can't you read?

The Scarecrow: Read what?

The Gatekeeper: The notice!

DorothyThe ScarecrowThe Cowardly LionThe Tin Man: What notice?

The Gatekeeper: It's on the door - as plain as the nose on my face! It... oh...

DorothyThe ScarecrowThe Cowardly LionThe Tin Man: [Reading notice, all together] Bell out of order, please knock.

[Dorothy knocks the door and he opens the window]

The Gatekeeper: Well, that's more like it! Now, state your business!

DorothyThe ScarecrowThe Cowardly LionThe Tin Man: [all together] We want to see the Wizard!

The Gatekeeper: [gasps] The Wizard? But, nobody can see the Great Oz! Nobody's ever seen the Great Oz! Even, I've never seen him!

Dorothy: Well, then how do you know there is one?

The Gatekeeper: Because, he... I... Oh, you're wasting my time.

[starts to close the window]

Dorothy: Oh, please. Please, sir. I've got to see the Wizard. The Good Witch of the North sent me.

The Gatekeeper: Prove it.

The Scarecrow: She's wearing the ruby slippers, she gave her.

The Gatekeeper: Oh, so she is! Well, bust my buttons! Why didn't you say that in the first place? That's a horse of a different color! Come on in!

Dorothy: Mm-hm!

The Scarecrow: Do you think if I went with you this wizard would give me some brains?

Dorothy: I couldn't say. But even if he didn't, you'd be no worse off than you are now.

The Scarecrow: Yes, that's true.

Dorothy: ...But, maybe you'd better not. I've got a witch mad at me and you might get into trouble.

The Scarecrow: A witch? I'm not afraid of a witch! I'm not afraid of anything!... Oh, ehm... Except a lighted match.

[fluffs his straw]

Dorothy: I don't blame you for that.

The Scarecrow: But I'd face a whole box full of 'em for the chance of getting some brains! Look, I won't be any trouble, because I don't need to think. And I won't try to manage things, because I can't think! Won't you take me with you?

Dorothy: Why, of course I will!

Dorothy: Oh! Are you all right?

The Tin Man: I'm afraid, I;m a little rusty yet.

Dorothy: Oh dear!

Dorothy: [She oiled him some more] That was wonderful! You know, we were just wondering why couldn't you come with us to the Emerald City to ask the Wizard of Oz for a heart.

The Tin Man: Well, suppose the Wizard wouldn't give me one when we got there.

Dorothy: Oh, but he will! He must! We've come such a long way already.

[the Wicked Witch of the West cackles madly as she stands on the roof of the cabin]

The Wicked Witch of the West: You call that long? Why, you've just begun! Helping the little lady along, are you, my fine gentlemen?

The Wicked Witch of the West: [to Scarecrow] Well, stay away from her, or I'll stuff a mattress with you!

The Wicked Witch of the West: [to Tin Man] And you! I'll use you for a beehive! Here, Scarecrow. Wanna play ball?

[the witch throws down a ball of fire to the ground which sets it on fire]

The Scarecrow: Fire! I'm burning! I'm burning!

[Dorothy screams in fright and Tin Man quickly puts out the fire with his funnel cap]

The Scarecrow: [the witch cackles then she disappeared behind a cloud of red smoke]
