This is a transcript of The Wizard of Oz.
Opening/Somewhere over the Rainbow
- (In Kansas (tinted in sepia tone) A young girl who is wearing a light blue dress gingham over her white shirt, two braided pigtails and black shoes. This is Dorothy Gale running down the country road with her small brown terrier dog Toto.)
- Dorothy Gale: (Worried) She isn't coming yet, Toto. Did she hurt you? She tried to didn't she? Come on, we'll go tell Uncle Henry and Auntie Em. Come on Toto.
- (She rushes home to tell her Uncle Henry and Auntie Em. But they're concerned about the broken incubator and they're counting the chicks. Dorothy flings the gate open.)
- Dorothy Gale: (Running up to Auntie Em) Aunt Em! Aunt Em! Just listen what Miss Gulch did to Toto.
- Auntie Em:(Not listening) Dorothy, please we're trying to count.
- Dorothy Gale: (Protesting) Oh, but Aunt Em she hit him.
- Uncle Henry: Don't bother us, honey. This old incubators gone bad and we're likely to lose some of our chicks.
- Dorothy Gale: (Sees the chick, concerned and picks it up) Oh, the poor little things. (Gets back on subject) Oh, but Aunt Em. Miss Gulch hit Toto right over with the back of a rake. Just because he gets in her garden, he chases her nasty old cat away.
- Auntie Em: (Continues counting) Seventy, Dorothy please!
- Dorothy Gale: Oh, but he doesn't do it every day. Just once or twice a week. He can't catch her old cat anyway. And now she's gonna get the sheriff.
- Auntie Em: Dorothy, Dorothy, we're busy.
- Dorothy Gale: (Understands and walks away) Oh, all right.
- (The farm workers are fixing a wagon in the farmyard.)
- Hunk: How's she coming? Take it easy. (Hurts his finger) Ow! You got my finger!
- Zeke: Why don't you get your finger out of the way?
- Hunk: There you are, right on my finger.
- Zeke: It's a lucky thing it wasn't in your head.
- Dorothy Gale: Zeke, what am I going to do about Miss Gulch? Just because he chases her old cat-
- Zeke: Listen honey, I got them hogs to get in.
- Hunk: Now look it Dorothy, you ain't using your head about Miss Gulch, You'd think you didn't have any brains at all.
- Dorothy Gale: I have so got brains.
- Hunk: Well, why don't you use them? When you come home don't by Miss Gulch's place. Then Toto won't get in her garden, and you won't get in no trouble see?
- Dorothy Gale: Oh, Hunk, you just won't listen that's all.
- Hunk: Well, your head ain't made of straw you know. (Hurts his finger again, while hammering.)
- Zeke: (Herding the pigs into the enclosure) Say, get in there before I make a dime bank out of you. (To Dorothy) Listen, kid are gonna let that old Gulch heifer try and buffalo you? She ain't nothing to be afraid of. Have a little courage, thats all.
- Dorothy Gale: (Walking on the pig-pen fence top) I'm not afraid of her.
- Zeke: Well, the next time she squawks, walk right up to her and spit her in the eye. That's what I'd do.
- (Dorothy falls into the pig sty. This causes Zeke help Dorothy out before she gets trampled.)
- Dorothy Gale: (Scared) Oh! Zeke! Help! Help me, Zeke! Get me out of here! (Picks up Dorothy and carries her out of the pig sty. Hunk and Hickory are concerned about what happened to Dorothy.)
- Hickory: Are you all right, Dorothy?
- Dorothy Gale: Yes, I'm all right. Oh, I fell in, and Zeke. Why, Zeke you're just as scared as I am.
- Hunk: (Jokingly) What's the matter? You're gonna let a little old pig make a coward out of you? (Chuckling)
- Hickory: Look at you, Zeke.
- Auntie Em: Hickory, whats all this jabber-wapping where there's work to be done? I know three shiftless farm hands that'll be out of the job, before they know it.
- Hickory: Well, Dorothy was walking along-
- Auntie Em: I saw you tinkering with that contraption Hickory. Now you and Hunk get back to that wagon.
- Hickory: All right, Mrs Gale. But someday, they're gonna react a statue to me in this town.
- Auntie Em: Well, don't start posing for it now. (Hunk laughs and Auntie Em gives them fresh baked crullers) Here, here, can't work on an empty stomach, have some crullers.
- Hunk: (Takes a cruller) Gosh, Mrs Gale.
- Hickory: (Takes one as well) Thanks. (They walk back to the wagon)
- Mrs Gale: Just fried.
- Zeke: You see, Dorothy toppled into-
- Auntie Em: It's no place for Dorothy around a pigsty! Now you go feed those hogs before they worry themselves into anemia!
- Zeke: (Gets up and Nodding his head) Yes, ma'am. (Goes back to the pigsty)
- Dorothy Gale: (Takes the cruller) Auntie Em really, you know what Miss Gulch said she was going to do to Toto? She said she'd-
- Auntie Em: (Sternly) Now, Dorothy dear stop even imagining things. You always get yourself into a fret over nothing. Now you just help us out today and find yourself a place where you won't get into any trouble. (Walking away)
- Dorothy Gale: (To herself) Someplace where there isn't any trouble. (To Toto) 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. (Begins singing) Somewhere over the rainbow, way up high There's a land that I've 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 trouble melt like lemon drops away above the chimney tops That's where you'll find me Somewhere over the rainbow, blue birds fly Birds fly over the rainbow Why then, oh why can'r I?
- (The birds are singing as the sun shines through the clouds.)
- Dorothy Gale: (Singing) If happy little bluebirds fly beyond the rainbow Why then, oh why can't I?
- (The song ends and Dorothy hugs Toto affectionately.)
Miss Gulch takes Toto away
(An angry woman rides her bicycle down the country road to the farm,this is Miss Gulch she has a basket on the back of her bicycle. Then she leaned her bicycle against the fence while Uncle Henry is holding a paint brush.)
Miss Gulch: Mr. Gale.
Uncle Henry: 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 Gale: What's she done? I'm all but lame from the bite on my leg!
Uncle Henry: Oh! You mean she bit you?
Miss Gulch: No, her dog!
Uncle Henry: Oh, she bit her dog eh? (Shuts the fence door)
Miss Gulch: (Exasperated) No!
(The scene switches to the living room where Miss Gulch lectures the Gales about Toto. While Dorothy holds Toto protectively.)
Miss Gulch: (Angrily) That dog's a menace to the community. I'm taking him to the sheriff to make sure he's destroyed.
Dorothy Gale: Destroyed? Toto? Oh, you can't! You musn't! Auntie Em! Uncle Henry! You won't let her will you?
Uncle Henry: Oh course we won't. (To Auntie Em) Uh, will we Em?
Dorothy Gale: (Goes to Auntie Em) Please, Aunt Em! Toto didn't mean to. He didn't know he was doing anything wrong. I'm the one that ought to be punished. I let him go in her garden. You can send me to bed without supper.
Miss Gulch: If you don't hand over the dog, I'll bring a damage suit that'll l take your whole farm. There's a law protecting folks against dogs that bite.
Auntie Em: How would it be if she keeps him tied up? He's really gentle, with gentle people that is.
Miss Gulch: Well, that's for the sheriff to decide. (Pulls out the sheriff's order) Here's his order, so allow me to him. Unless you wanna go against the law.
Uncle Henry: (Takes the order) Hm. Yes.
Auntie Em: Uh,we can't go against the law, Dorothy. I'm afraid poor Toto has to go.
Miss Gulch: Now you're seeing reason.
Dorothy Gale: No.
Miss Gulch: (Pulls out the basket) Here's what I'm taking him in, so he can't attack me again.
Dorothy Gale: (Upset, protesting) No, No! I won't let you take him! You go away or I'll bite you myself!
Auntie Em: Dorothy!
Dorothy Gale: You wicked old witch! Uncle Henry, Auntie Em, don't let her take Toto.
Miss Gulch: (Trying to grab Toto) I've got an order! Let me have him!
Dorothy Gale: Please stop her!
Auntie Em: Put him in the basket, Henry.
Miss Gulch: The idea!
Dorothy Gale: (Begging) Don't, Uncle Henry. (Uncle Henry puts Toto in the basket while he whimpers.) (On the verge of tears) Oh, Toto!
(Dorothy runs to her bedroom crying.)
Auntie Em: (Furiously) Almira Gulch! Just because you own half the county doesn't mean 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!
(Auntie Em goes to Dorothy's room, Uncle Henry sits down on the chair and Miss Gulch stood there shocked.)
Dorothy and Toto running away/Dorothy visits Professor Marvel
(The camera switches to Miss Gulch pedals down the country road. Toto pokes his head and jumped out of the basket, Miss Gulch didn't notice him. Toto runs back to the farm and jumps into the window of Dorothy's bedroom where she was crying next to her bed.)
Dorothy Gale: (Happily) Toto, darling! (Hugging Toto) Oh, I got you back! You came back! I'm so glad Toto. (Realizing) They'll be coming back for in a minute. We've got to get away! We got to run away!
(Dorothy pulls out her suitcase and starts packing then the camera switches with Dorothy carrying her suitcase and basket among with Toto walk down the country dirty road and they crossed a wooden bridge. Then they encounter a horse-drawn carnival wagon down in an embankment which says "Professor Marvel, Acclaimed by the Crowned Heads of Europe, Let Him Read Your Past, Present, and Future in His Crystal, Also Juggling and Sleight of Hand." A man comes out of his wagon he is dressed in formal clothes and wears a black neckerchief around his collar this is Professor Marvel.)
Professor Marvel: Well, well, well! Houseguests, eh? (Chuckling goes to his fire to roast a hot dog) And who might you be? (Dorothy was about to answer) No, no. Now don't tell me. Let's see. You're... You're traveling in disguise. No, that's not right. You're... You're going on a visit. No, I'm wrong. Let's see what we You're You're running away.
Dorothy Gale" How did you guess?
Professor Marvel: (Chuckling) Professor Marvel never guesses, he knows. Now, why are you running away? (Dorothy was about to answer) No, no. Now don't tell me. They uh They don't understand you at home. They don't appreciate you. You want to see other lands. Big cities, big mountains, big oceans.
Dorothy Gale: Why, it's just like you could read what was inside of me.
Professor Marvel: Yeah. (Toto takes the hot dog while Professor is not looking.)
Dorothy Gale: (Chiding to Toto) Toto, that's not polite! We haven't been asked yet.
Professor Marvel: Oh, he's perfectly welcome. As one dog to another, huh? (Gets back on subject) Now, let's see where were we?
Dorothy Gale: Oh please Professor, why can't we go with you and see all the crowned heads of Europe?
Professor Marvel: Do you know any? Oh, you mean the thing? Yes. Well, uh I never do anything without consulting my crystal first. Let's go inside here. We'll just come along. I'll show you.
(Professor Marvel leads Dorothy and Toto inside his wagon.)
Professor Marvel: That's right. Here. Sit down right here. That's it. (Dorothy sits down on the chair) This is the same genuine, magic, authentic crystal...used by the priests of Isis and Osiris in the days of Pharaoh's of Egypt. (Puts on his turban) In which Cleopatra saw the approach of Julius Caesar and Marc Anthony. And so on, so on, and so on. Now you'd better close your eyes my child, for a moment... (Dorothy closes her eyes) in order to be better be in tuned with the Infinite. (He rummages her basket and looks at a photo of Dorothy and Aunt Em) We can't do those things without reaching out into the Infinite. Yes, that's all right. Now you can open them. (Dorothy opens her eyes) We'll gaze into the crystal. Ah. (Looks at the image in the crystal ball) What's this I see? A house with a picket fence and a barn with a weathervane of a running horse.
Dorothy Gale: That's our farm!
Professor Marvel: Yes. (Continues looking at his crystal ball) Yes. There's a woman. She's wearing a polka-dot dress. Her face is careworn.
Dorothy Gale: That's Aunt Em.
Professor Marvel: Yes. Her name is Emily.
Dorothy Gale: That's right. What's she doing?
Professor Marvel: Well I, uh I can't quite see. Why she's crying. Someone has hurt her. Someone has just about broken her heart.
Dorothy Gale: Me?
Professor Marvel: Well, it's uh, someone she loves very much. Someone she's been very kind to. Someone she's taken care of in sickness.
Dorothy Gale: I had the measles once and she stayed right by me every minute.
Professor Marvel: Uh huh.
Dorothy Gale: What's she doing now?
Professor Marvel: (Looking at the crystal ball) She's uh.. What's this? Well, she's, she's putting her hand on her heart. Oh, she's dropping down on the bed.
Dorothy Gale: Oh no, no!
Professor Marvel: Well, that's all, the crystal's gone dark.
Dorothy Gale: (Gets up from the chair, concerned) Oh, you don't suppose she could be really sick do you? (Grabs her basket) Oh, I've got to go home right away!
Professor Marvel: But, what's this? I thought you were going along with me!
Dorothy Gale: Oh no, no, I have to get to her right away!
Professor Marvel: Huh?
Dorothy Gale: (To Toto) Come on, Toto! Come on! Come on! (Picks up Toto and turns back to Professor Marvel) Goodbye, Professor Marvel and thanks al lot! (Then she leaves for home as the storm approaches)
Professor Marvel (Goes to his horse) Better get under cover, Sylvester! There's a storm blowing, a whopper to speak in the vernacular of the peasantry! (To himself) Poor little kid. I hope she get's home all right.
Twister/Dorothy in a cyclone
(The camera switches back to the Gale farm as the twister approaches, the chickens scurry around and Uncle Henry comes out.)
Uncle Henry: Hurry up and get them horses loose! Where's Hickory? Hickory! Hickory! Doggone it!
Zeke: It's a twister! It's a twister! (The horses come out of the barn running.)
(Aunt Em is outside feeling worried about Dorothy.)
Aunt Em: (Calling) Dorothy! Dorothy!
(Dorothy and Toto walks to the farm as the tornado gets strong.)
Uncle Henry: Come on! Everybody in the storm cellar!
(As Dorothy keeps walking she puts down her suitcase and picks up Toto.)
Aunt Em: Henry! I can't find Dorothy! She's out in the storm!
Uncle Henry: We can't look for her now! Come on, get in the cellar! Hurry up! (Aunt Em, Uncle Henry and the farmhands all get in the cellar.)
(Dorothy reaches for the front door to the house, she opens the screen door it ripped from the hinges and blew away. Dorothy went into the house and looked around.)
Dorothy Gale: Auntie Em! Auntie Em? Auntie Em! (Goes outside and desperately tries to open the cellar door but it's locked.) Auntie Em! Uncle Henry!
(Dorothy goes back inside the house and went to her bedroom.)
Dorothy Gale: Auntie Em! (A window sash blown by the wind hits on the head which causes her to yelp and she lies back on her bed unconscious.)
(The camera switches where the house is spinning inside the tornado. Outside of Dorothy's bedroom window a picket fence and a tree float by and Dorothy awakens as the chicken coop floats by. Dorothy sits up and looks on as the old lady knits in the rocking chair she waves to Dorothy and Dorothy waves back. A cow floats by mooing and Toto looks out the window as he barks. Two men in a row boat float by gave friendly gestures at Dorothy as she continues to look on and sees that she's in the middle of a tornado.)
Dorothy Gale: (To Toto) We must be up inside the cyclone! (Miss Gulch is pedaling her bicycle in the air.) Oh! Miss Gulch!
(As Miss Gulch continues pedaling she suddenly transforms into a witch wearing a pointed hat, a cape and on a flying broomstick. Dorothy looks away in fear as the Witch cackles evilly. The house continues spinning as Dorothy screams while holding on to Toto. Then the house flies down and it lands on the ground.)
Dorothy Gale: (Surprised) Oh!
(Dorothy gets off her bed carrying Toto and picks up her basket leaving her bedroom.)
Munchkinland/Glinda the Good Witch of the North
(Dorothy with Toto in arms curiously opens the front door to go outside. Whilst opening the door, the film changes from sepia tone to technicolor. Outside of the house is a colorful magical land where everything is beautiful. As Dorothy goes outside she is awed upon seeing that everything is colorful. The camera pans around where there's flowers, a pond, tiny hatched huts, and a spiraling yellow brick walkaway.)
Dorothy Gale: Toto... I have a feeling we're not in Kansas anymore. (The little people who are hiding in the bushes look at Dorothy then she turns and they quickly hide.) We must be over the rainbow!
(Dorothy puts Toto down and then the bubble floats down towards Dorothy as it approaches. Then a woman appears she is wearing a pink gown with a matching crown, has auburn curly hair and carrying a long magic wand. This is Glinda the Good Witch of the North.)
Dorothy Gale: (Timoroursly) Now I know we're not in Kansas.
Glinda: Are you a good witch or a bad witch?
Dorothy Gale: Who, me? (Glinda nods) Why, I'm not a witch at all. I'm Dorothy Gale from Kansas.
Glinda: (Understand) Oh. (Sees Toto) Well, is that the witch?
Dorothy Gale: Who, Toto? Toto's my dog.
Glinda: (Giggles) Oh well, I'm a little muddled. The Munchkins called me, because a new Witch has just dropped the 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.
(The house has landed on the Wicked Witch of the East who is wearing a pair of ruby slippers. Dorothy gasped in shock.)
Glinda: And so, what the Munchkins want to know is, are you a Good Witch or a Bad Witch?
Dorothy Gale: But I've already told you, I'm not a witch at all. Witches are old and ugly. (She hears giggling) What was that?
Glinda: The Munchkins. They'e laughing because I am a witch. I'm Glinda the Witch of the North.
Dorothy Gale: (Surprised) You are? Oh, I beg your pardon. But I've never heard of a beautiful witch before.
Glinda: Only bad witches are ugly. The Munchkins are happy because you have freed them from the Wicked Witch of the East.
Dorothy Gale: Oh, but if you please, what are Munchkins? (Munchkins giggled)
Glinda: The little people who live here. It's Munckinland and you are their national heroine my dear. (To Munckins) It's all right. You may all come out and thank her.
(The Munchkins all come out of their hiding places and then Glinda begins to sing.)
Glinda: (Singing) Come out, come out, wherever you are. And meet the young lady who fell from the star. (Glinda holds Dorothy's hand as the Munchkins gather around) She fell from the sky, she fell very far and Kansas, she says, is the name of the star.
Munchkins:(Singing) Kansas, she says, is the name of the star.
Glinda: (Singing) She brings you good news. Or haven't you heard? When she fell out of Kansas. a miracle occurred.
Dorothy Gale: (Speaking) It really was no miracle. What happened was just this. (Singing) 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.
Male Munchkin: (Comes out of the crowd) And oh, 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 the ditch. Which was not a healthy situation for the Wicked Witch. (Dancing) The house began to pitch, the kitchen took a slitch. It landed on the Wicked Witch in the middle of the ditch. Which was not a healthy situation for the Wicked Witch. Who began to twitch and was reduced to a stitch. Of what was once the Wicked Witch.
(A miniature carriage comes down among with the munchkin soilders and Dorothy smiled as she comes to the carriage.)
Ding Dong the Witch is dead/The Wicked Witch of the West
Munchkin 1: (To Dorothy) We thank you very sweetly, for doing it so neatly.
Munchkin 2: You've killed her so completely, that we thank you very sweetly. (Gives Dorothy a bouquet and she smells them.)
Glinda: Let the joyous news be spread! The Wicked Old Witch at last is dead! (The Munchkins cheer and they begin to march.)
Munchkins: (Singing) Ding-Dong! The Witch is dead! Which old Witch? The Wicked Witch! Ding-Dong! The Wicked Witch is dead. Wake up, you sleepyhead, rub your eyes, get out of bed. Wake up, the Wicked Witch is dead. She's gone where the goblins go, Below, below, below. Yo-ho! Let's open up and sing and ring the bells out. Ding-Dong! The merry-o, sing it high, sing it low. Let them know The Wicked Witch is dead.
(The Munchkin trumpeters and played a fanfare as the Mayor comes out among with the Barrister. Dorothy comes out of the carriage as she takes the Mayor's hand.)
Mayor Munchkin: As mayor of the Munchkin City, In the County of the Land of Oz, I welcome you most regally.
Barrister Munchkin: But we've go to verify it legally, to see.
Mayor Munchkin: To see?
Barrister Munchkin: if she.
Mayor Munchkin: If she?
Barrister Munchkin: Is morally, ethically.
Male Munchkin 1: Spiritually, physically.
Male Munchkin 2: Positively, absolutely
Munchkins: Undeniably and reliably dead.
(Glinda smiled as she looks on. Then the Coroner walks up to the mayor while holding a certificate.)
Coroner Munchkin: As coroner I must aver, I thoroughly examined her. And she's not only merely dead, she's really most sincerely dead.
Mayor Munchkin: Then this is a Day of Independance for all the Munchkins and their descendants.
Barrister Munchkin: If any.
Mayor Munchkin: Yes, let the joyous news be spread. The Wicked Old Witch at last is dead! (Munchkins cheer)
Munchkins: (Singing) Ding-Dong! The Witch is dead. Which old witch? The Wicked Witch! Ding-Dong the Wicked Witch is dead! Wake up you sleepyhead, Rub your eyes, get out of bed. Wake up. The Wicked Witch is dead. She's gone where the goblins go. Below, below, below. Yo-ho! Let's open up and sing. And ring the bells out. Ding-Dong! The merry-o, sing it high, sing it low. Let them know the Wicked Witch is dead!
(The Munchkin soldiers march as the Munchkin citizens all gather around. Then a trio of female Munchkin dressed in pink dresses come out perform and sing for Dorothy as she watches.)
Lullaby League Trio: We represent the Lullaby League, The Lullaby League, The Lullaby League. And in the name of the Lullaby League. We wish to welcome you to Munchkin Land. (As they go back to the crowd they blow kisses at Dorothy and she also blows a kiss as well.)
(Then a trio of male tap dancing Munchkins come out and dance for Dorothy while the leader is holding a lollipop.)
Lollipop Guild Trio: We represent the Lollipop Guild, The Lollipop Guild, The Lollipop Guild. And in the name of the Lollipop Guild. (The Guild leader gives Dorothy the lollipop) We wish to welcome you to Munchkinland.
Munchkins: We welcome you to Munchkinland, Tra-la-la-la-la-la, Tra-la-la-la-la-la.
Mayor Munchkin: From now on you'll be history.
Barrister Munchkin: You'll be his.
Male Munchkin: You'll be his.
Mayor Munchkin: You'll be history.
Munchkins: And we will glorify your name.
Mayor Munchkin: You'll be a bust.
Barrister Munchkin: Be a bust.
Father Munchkin: Be a bust.
Munchkins: In the hall of fame.!(Then they escort Dorothy back to Glinda) Tr-la-la-la-la-la, Tra-la-la-la-la, Tra-la-la-la-la La!
(The Munchkins cheer, but suddenly red smoke appeared and a woman with green skin wears a black dress, black cloak, a black pointed hat and she holds a broomstick appears. This is the Wicked Witch of the West the Munchkins are frightened as they scatter from her. Dorothy picks up Toto and Glinda holds her protectively. Dorothy reacts in fright as the Witch looks at her evilly then she goes to see her deceased sister.)
Dorothy Gale: I thought you said she was dead.
Glinda: That was her sister, the Wicked Witch of the East. This is the Wicked Witch of the West and she's worse than the other one was.
Wicked Witch of the West: (Walking up to Glinda and Dorothy) Who killed my sister? Who killed the Witch of the East? (To Dorothy) Was it you?
Dorothy Gale: No, no it was an accident. I didn't mean to kill anybody.
Wicked Witch of the West: Well, my little pretty. I can cause accidents too!
Glinda: Aren't you forgetting the ruby slippers?
Wicked Witch of the West: The slippers. Yes! (She walks back to the house) The slippers.
(As the Witch reaches for the slippers but they disappear from the feet of the Wicked Witch of the East.)
Wicked Witch of the West: (Angrily) They're gone! The ruby slippers! What have you done to them? Give them back to me or I'll..
Glinda: It's too late! There they are, and there they'll stay! (The ruby slippers were transferred to Dorothy's feet and Dorothy gasped in surprise.)
Wicked Witch of the West: Give me back my slippers! I'm the only one who knows how to use them. They're no use to you. Give them back to me. Give them back!
Glinda: (Whispering to Dorothy) Keep tight inside of them. Their magic must be very powerful or she wouldn't want them so badly. (Dorothy nods)
Wicked Witch of the West: You stay out of this, Glinda or I'll fix you as well!
Glinda: Oh, rubbish! You have no power here. Begone, before somebody drops a house on you too!
Wicked Witch of the West: Very well. I'll bide my time. (To Dorothy) And as for you, my fine lady, it's true I can't attend to you here as I'd like. But just try to stay out of my way! Just try! I'll get you my pretty and your little dog too!
(The Witch cackles evilly then she disappears in a cloud of red smoke and the Munchkins all gasp in fright.)
Follow the Yellow Brick Road
Glinda: It's all right. You can get up. She's gone! It's all right. You can all get up. (The Munchkins all get up) Oh! What a smell of sulfer! (To Dorothy) I'm afraid you've made rather a bad enemy of the Wicked Witch of the West. The sooner you get of Oz altogether, the safer you'll sleep, my dear.
Dorothy Gale: Oh, I'd give anything to get of Oz altogether. But which is the way back to Kansas? I can't go the way I came.
Glinda: No, that's true. The only person who might know would be the great and wonderful Wizard of Oz himself. (Munchkins bow)
Dorothy Gale: The Wizard of Oz? Is he good or is he wicked?
Glinda: Oh, very good but mysterious. He lives in the Emerald City, and that's a long journey from here. Did you bring your broomstick with you?
Dorothy Gale: No, I'm afraid I didn't.
Glinda: Well, then, you'll have to walk. The Munchkins will see you safely to the border of Munchkinland. And remember, never let those ruby slippers off your feet for a moment or you will be at the mercy of the Wicked Witch of the West. (Kissed Dorothy on the forehead)
Dorothy Gale: But how do I start for Emerald City?
Gale: It"s always best to start at the beginning. And all you do is follow the Yellow Brick Road.
(Dorothy walks to the yellow brick road and turns to Glinda.)
Dorothy Gale: But what happens if I...
Glinda: Just follow the Yellow Brick Road. (Then she disappears in her pink bubble)
Munchkins: Goodbye! (They all wave to her as the bubble floats away.)
Dorothy Gale: My! People come and go so quickly here! (The Munchkins nod and giggle) Follow the Yellow Brick Road. (Starts walking on the Yellow Brick Road) Follow the Yellow Brick Road?
Mayor Munchkin: Follow the Yellow Brick Road.
Male Munchkin: Follow the Yellow Brick Road.
Female Munchkin: Follow the Yellow Brick Road.
Barrister Munchkin: Follow the Yellow Brick Road.
Munchkins: (Singing) Follow the Yellow Brick Road. Follow the Yellow Brick Road. Follow, follow, follow, follow Follow the Yellow Brick Road. Follow the Yellow Brick. Follow the Yellow Brick Road. (Dorothy and Toto begin following the Yellow Brick Road as some of the Munchkins bowed to her) You're off to see the Wizard. The wonderful Wizard of Oz. You'll find he is a whiz of a wiz. If ever a wiz there was. If ever, oh ever a wiz there was. The Wizard of Oz is because. Because, because, because, Because, because. Because of the wonderful things he does. You're off to see the Wizard. The wonderful Wizard of Oz.
(The Munchkins all wave goodbye to Dorothy and she waves back to them. Then Dorothy and Toto begin their journey to the Emerald City.)
Dorothy meets the Scarecrow/ If I Only had a Brain
(The scene changes where Dorothy and Toto walk down the yellow brick road next to the cornfield.)
Dorothy Gale: (Confused) Follow the Yellow Brick Road? Follow the Yellow...? Now which way do we go?
Scarecrow: Pardon me! That way is a very nice way. (This is the Scarecrow he is hanging from the pole and he is pointing one direction)
Dorothy Gale: (Surprised) Who said that? (Toto barks at the scarecrow) Don't be silly, Toto. Scarecrows don't talk.
Scarecrow: It's pleasant down this way too. (Pointing another direction)
Dorothy Gale: That's funny. Wasn't he pointing the other way?
Scarecrow: Of course, people do go both ways. (Pointing two opposite directions)
Dorothy Gale: (Realizing, walking up to Scarecrow) Why, you did say something, didn't you? (Scarecrow shakes his head and nods) Are you doing that on purpose, or can't you make up your mind?
Scarecrow: That's the trouble. I can't make my mind. i haven't got a brain. Only straw. (Shows straw to Dorothy)
Dorothy Gale: How can you talk if you haven't got a brain?
Scarecrow: I don't know. Some people without brains do an awful lot of talking, don't they?
Dorothy Gale: Yes, I guess you're right. (Walks into the cornfield) Well, we haven't really met properly, have we?
Scarecrow: Why, no.
Dorothy Gale: (Curtsies) How do you do?
Scarecrow: How do you do?
Dorothy Gale: Very well, thank you.
Scarecrow: Oh, I'm not feeling at all well. You see, it's very tedious being stuck up here all day long with a pole up your back.
Dorothy Gale: (Concerned) Oh, dear. That must be terribly uncomfortable. Can't you get down?
Scarecrow: Down? No, you see, I'm well. I'm...
Dorothy Gale: Oh, well, here. Let me help you. (Helps Scarecrow)
Scarecrow: (Grateful) Oh, that's very kind of you. Very kind.
Dorothy Gale: Well, Oh dear, I don't quite see how I...
Scarecrow: Of course, I'm not bright about doing things but if you just bend the nail down in the back, maybe I'll slip off and-
Dorothy Gale: (Bends the nail) Oh yes!
Scarecrow: (Falls and lands on the ground) Whoops! (Chuckling) There goes some of me again!
Dorothy Gale: (Worried) Oh, does it hurt you?
Scarecrow: (Stuffs the straw back into himself) Oh, no. I just keep picking it up and putting it back in again. (Chuckling, Happily) My! It's good to be free! (Falls over to the ground and Dorothy exclaimed) Did I scare you?
Dorothy Gale: No, no. I just thought you hurt yourself.
Scarecrow: But I didn't scare you?
Dorothy Gale: No, of course not.
Scarecrow: I didn't think so. (A crow lands on his shoulder) Boo! Scat! Boo! (The crow pecks the straw from his collar and flies) You see? I can't even scare a crow. They come from miles around just to eat in my field and laugh at my face. (Sadly) Oh, I'm a failure, because, I haven't got a brain!
Dorothy Gale: Well, what would you do with a brain if you had one?
Scarecrow: Do? Why if I had a brain, I could. (Singing) I could while away the hours conferring with the flowers. Consulting with the rain. And my head I'd be scratching. While my thoughts were busy hatching. If I only had a brain. (Rolling down) I'd unravel every riddle. For any individle. In trouble or in pain. (Dorothy catches him from falling)
Dorothy Gale: (Singing) With the thoughts you'd be thinking. You could be another Lincoln. If you only had a brain.
Scarecrow: Oh, I could tell you why. The ocean's near the shore. I could think of things. I never thunk before. And then I sit and think some more. I would not be just a nothing, my head all full of stuffing. My heart all full of pain. (Dancing) I would dance and be merry. Life would be a ding-a-derry. If I only had a brain. (Falls down) Whoa!
Dorothy Gale: (Picks up the straw and shakes his hand) Wonderful! (Puts the straw back in inside of Scarecrow) Why, if our scarecrow back in Kansas could do that the crows would be scared to pieces!
Scarecrow: They would?
Dorothy Gale: (Nodding) Mm-hmm.
Scarecrow: (Curiously) Where's Kansas?
Dorothy Gale: That's where I live and I wanna get back there so badly, i'm going to the Emerald City to get the Wizard of Oz to help me.
Scarecrow: You're going to see a wizard?
Dorothy Gale: (Nodding) Mm-hmm.
Scarecrow: Do you think if I went, this wizard would give me brains?
Dorothy Gale: I couldn't say. But even if he didn't, you'd be no worse off than you are now.
Scarecrow: Yes, that's true.
Dorothy Gale: But maybe you better not. I've got a witch mad at me, and you might get into trouble.
Scarecrow: Witch? I'm not afraid of a witch! I'm not afraid of anything! Except a lighted match.
Dorothy Gale: I don't blame you for that.
Scarecrow: But I'd face a whole box of them for the chance of getting some brains. Look, I won't be any trouble, because I don't eat a thing. And I won't try to manage things, because I can't think. Won't you take me with you?
Dorothy Gale: Why, of course I will!
Scarecrow: (Gets up happily) Hooray! We're off to see a wizard!
Dorothy Gale: (Catches him) Oh, you're not starting out very well.
Scarecrow: Oh, I'll try! Really, I will.
Dorothy Gale: To Oz?
Scarecrow: To Oz!
Scarecrow and Dorothy Gale: (Singing together and skipping down the road) We're off to see the wizard. The wonderful Wizard of Oz. We hear he is a whiz of a wiz. If ever wiz there was. If ever, oh ever a wiz there was. The Wizard of Oz is one because. Because, because, because, Because, because. Because of the wonderful things he does. We're off to see the wizard. The wonderful Wizard of Oz.
(Dorothy, Toto and Scarecrow walk down the road continuing the journey to the Emerald City.)
Dorothy and Scarecrow confronted by apple trees
(The scene changes where Dorothy, Scarecrow and Toto walk down the yellow brick road next to the apple trees. The Wicked Witch of the West watches them from behind the tree.)
Dorothy Gale: Oh, apples! Oh look! (She walks up to the apple tree then she picks one off but the tree grabs the apple and slapped Dorothy's hand) Ouch!
Apple tree: (Angrily) What do you think you're doing?
Dorothy Gale: We've been walking a long ways and I was hungry and... (Realizing) Did you say something?
Apple tree: She was hungry!
Apple tree 2: She was hungry!
Apple tree: (To Dorothy) Well, how would you like to have someone come along and pick something off of you?
Dorothy Gale: Oh dear! I keep forgetting I'm in Kansas.
Scarecrow: Come along, Dorothy. You don't want any of those apples.
Apple tree: Are you hinting my apples aren't what they ought to be?
Scarescrow: Oh, no. It's just that she doesn't like little green worms!
Apple tree: (Angrily, begins to attack them) Oh, you! (The tree tries to grab Dorothy which causes her to scream)
Scarecrow: (Whispering to Dorothy) I'll show how to get apples. (Then he makes a face at a tree which causes him to throw apples them) Hooray! I guess that did it! Help yourself.
Meeting the Tin man/If I only had a Heart
(As Dorothy and Scarecrow pick up the apples off the ground. Dorothy sees something and she knocks lightly on the foot and the leg. Dorothy stands up and sees a silver faced man thats wearing a funnel cap this is the Tin man he is standing rusted solid.)
Dorothy Gale: (Astonished) Why, it's a man! (To Scarecrow) A man made out of tin!
Scarecrow: (Surprised) What? (Runs up to see the Tin man)
Dorothy Gale: Yes! Look!
Tin Man: (Muffled) Oil can! Oil can!
Dorothy Gale: Did you say something?
Tin Man: (Muffled) Oil can.
Dorothy Gale: He said oil can.
Scarecrow: Oil can what?
Dorothy Gale: Oil can? (Sees the oil can and takes it) Oh, here it is. Where do you want to be oiled first?
Tin Man: (Muffled) My mouth! My mouth!
Scarecrow: He said his mouth. (Takes the oil can and squirts it into his mouth) The other side. (Gives it to Dorothy and she squirts oil into the other side of his mouth)
Tin Man: (Begins speaking) My-My goodness! I can talk again! Oh! Oil my arms, please. Oil my elbows. (Dorothy oils Tin Man's joints)
Dorothy Gale: (Hands the oil can to Scarecrow) Here. (Scarecrow oils his other elbow and he lowers the axe to the ground) Did that hurt?
Tin Man: No, it feels wonderful. I've held that axe up for ages.
Dorothy Gale: Goodness! How did you ever get like this?
Tin Man: Well, about a year ago, I was chopping that tree, when suddenly it began to rain. And right in the middle of the chop, I rusted solid. And I've been that way ever since.
Dorothy Gale: Well, you're perfect now.
Tin Man: (To Scarecrow) My neck. My neck. (Scarecrow oils Tin Man's neck) (To Dorothy) Perfect? Bang on my chest if you think I'm perfect. Go ahead, bang on it! (Dorothy bangs on his chest which causes an echo)
Scarecrow: Beautiful! What an echo!
Tin Man: (Sadly) It's empty. The tinsmith forgot to give me a heart.
Scarecrow and Dorothy Gale: No heart?
Tin Man: No heart. All hollow. (Taps his chest and falls backwards) (Singing) When a man's an empty kettle, He should be on his mettle, And yet I'm torn apart. Just because I'm presuming That I could be kind of human. If I only had a heart. I'd be tender, I'd be gentle, And awful sentimental.Regarding love and art, I'd be friends with a sparrows And the boy who shoots the arrows. If I only had a heart Picture me, A balcony Above a voice sings low.
Juliet's voice: Wherefore art thou, Romeo?
Tin Man: (Singing) I hear a beat. How sweet! Just to register emotion Jealousy, devotion. And really feel the part. I could stay young and chipper. And I lock it with a zipper. If I only had a heart.
(Tin Man starts walking while his legs are rusted. Then Dorothy oils his knees as Tin Man continues to walk Scarecrow oils his other knee. Tin Man walks backwards then he begins dancing as Scarecrow and Dorothy watch in delight. Dorothy and Scarecrow whisper to each other and they both nod. As Tin Man leans in sideways Dorothy and Scarecrow try to catch him. Tin Man then tarts backwards to sit down.)
Dorothy Gale: Oh! Are you all right?
Tin Man: I'm afraid, I;m a little rusty yet.
Dorthy Gale: Oh dear! (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.
Tin Man: Well, suppose the Wizard wouldn't give me one when we got there.
Dorothy Gale: 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.)
Wicked Witch of the West: You call that long? Why, you've just begun! Helping the little lady along, are you, my fine gentlemen? Well, stay away from her (To Scarecrow) or I'll stuff a mattress with you! (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.)
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 witch cackles then she disappeared behind a cloud of red smoke.)
Scarecrow: I'm not afraid of her. I'll see you get safely to the Wizard, whether I get a brain or not! Stuff a mattress with me! (Scoffs)
Tin Man: I'll see you reach the Wizard, whether I get a heart or not. Beehive! Bah! Let her try and make a beehive out of me!
Dorothy Gale: Oh, you're the best friends anybody ever had. And it's funny, but I feel as if I've known you all the time. But I couldn't have, could I?
Scarecrow: I don't see how. You weren't around when I was stuffed and sewn together, were you?
Tin Man: And I was standing over there rusting for the longest time.
Dorothy Gale: Still, I wish I could remember. But I guess it doesn't matter anyway. We know each other now don't we?
Scarecrow: That's right.
Tin Man: We do.
Scarecrow: To Oz?
Tin Man: To Oz!
Dorothy Gale, Scarecrow and Tin Man: (Singing together) We're off to see the wizard. The wonderful Wizard of Oz. We hear he is a whiz of a wiz, If ever a wiz there was. If ever, oh ever a wiz there was, The Wizard of Oz is one because. Because, because, because,Because, because. Because of the wonderful things he does. We're off to see the wizard. The wonderful Wizard of Oz.
(Dorothy, Scarecrow, Tin Man, and Toto continue their journey to the Emerald City and they enter a thick forest.)
Meeting the Cowardly Lion/If I only had the Nerve
(Dorothy, Scarecrow, Tin Man and Toto are walking deep in the forest is dark. Dorothy felt nervous and scared upon hearing spooky noises.)
Dorothy Gale: (Scared) I don't like this forest. It's dark and creepy.
Scarecrow: Of course, I don't know, but I think it'll get darker before it gets lighter. (Dorothy nods and turns to Tin Man)
Dorothy Gale: Do... Do you suppose we'll meet any wild animals?
Tin Man: Mmm, we might. (Dorothy gasped)
Scarecrow: (Nervously) Animals that eat straw?
Tin Man: Uh, some but mostly lions and tigers and bears.
Dorothy Gale: Lions!
Scarecrow: And tigers?
Tin Man: And bears!
Dorothy Gale: (Gasps) Lions and tigers and bears! Oh my!
Dorothy Gale, Tin Man, and Scarecrow: (Together and they march fearfully down the road) Lion and tigers and bears! Oh my! Lions and tigers and bears! Oh my! Lions and tigers and bears! Oh my!
(Scarecrow jumps back in fear upon hearing the lion roar. Dorothy Tin Man, and Scarecrow get scared as the lion approached them. He gets up on his feet and he roars at them as Scarecrow and Tin Man cower on the ground. Dorothy hides from behind the tree.)
Cowardly Lion: (Challenging Scarecrow and Tin Man) Put em up! Put em up! Which one of you first? I'll fight you both together if you want. I'll fight you with one paw tied behind my back! I'll fight standing on one foot! I'll fight with my eyes closed! (To Tin Man) Oh, pulling an axe on me, eh? (To Scarecrow) Sneaking up on me, eh? Why... (Growling at Tin Man)
Tin Man: Here, here. Go away and let us alone.
Cowardly Lion: Oh, scared, huh? Afraid huh? How long you stay fresh in that can? (Chuckling) Come on, get up and fight, you shivering junkyard. (To Scarecrow) Put your hands up, you lopsided bag of hay!
Scarecrow: Now that's getting personal, Lion.
Tin Man: Yes, get up and teach him a lesson.
Scarecrow: What's wrong with you teaching him?
Tin Man: Well, I hardly know him. (Toto barks at Lion)
Cowardly Lion: (To Toto) Well, I'll get you anyway, peewee.
(Lion chases Toto which shocks Dorothy and she comes to his defense picking him up. As Lion approached him trying to attack him Dorothy slapped Lion in the nose.)
Dorothy Gale: (Scolding) Shame on you!
Cowardly Lion: (Crying) What did you do that for? I didn't bite him.
Dorothy Gale: No, but you tried to. But it's bad enough picking on a straw man but when you go around picking on poor little dogs.
Cowardly Lion: Well, you didn't have to go and hit me, did you? Is my nose bleeding?
Dorothy Gale: Well, of course not. (Lion wipes his tears with his tail) 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!
Cowardly Lion: You're right, I am a coward! I haven't had any courage at all. I even scare myself! Look at the circles under my eyes. I haven't slept in weeks.
Tin Man: Why don't you try counting sheep?
Cowardly Lion: That doesn't do any good. I'm afraid of them.
Scarecrow: Oh, that's too bad. (To Dorothy) Don't you think the Wizard could help him too?
Dorothy Gale: I don't see why not. (To Lion) Why don't you, come along with us? We're on our way to see the Wizard now. To get him a heart.
Tin Man: And him a brain.
Dorothy Gale: I'm sure, he could give you some courage.
Cowardly Lion: Well, wouldn't you feel degraded to be seen in the company of a cowardly lion? I would.
Dorothy Gale: No, of course not.
Cowardly Lion: Gee, that's awfully nice of you. My life has been simply unbearable.
Dorothy Gale: (Wiping Lion's tears with her handkerchief) Oh. Well It's all right now. The Wizard will fix everything.
Cowardly Lion: It's been in me so long. I just gotta tell you how I feel.
Dorothy Gale: Well, come on!
Cowardly Lion: (Singing as they continue walking down the road with them) Yeah, it's sad, Believe me missy. When you're born to be a sissy. Without the vim and verve. But I could show my prowess. Be a lion, not a mouse. If I only had the nerve. I'm afraid there's no denying. I'm just a dandy lion. A fate I don't deserve. I'd be brave as a blizzard.
Tin Man: (Singing) I'd be gentle as a lizard.
Scarecrow: I'd be clever as a gizzard.
Dorothy Gale: (Singing) If the Wizard is a wizard, who will serve.
Scarecrow: (Singing) Then I'm sure to get a brain.
Tin Man: (Singing) A heart.
Dorothy Gale: (Singing) A home.
Cowardly Lion: The nerve!
Dorothy Gale, Scarecrow, Tin man, and Lion: (Singing together) Oh, we're off to see the Wizard. The wonderful Wizard of Oz. We hear he is a whiz of a wiz. If ever a wiz there was. If ever, oh ever a wiz there was. The Wizard of Oz is one because. Because, because, because. Because, because. Because of the wonderful things he does. We're off to see the Wizard. The wonderful Wizard of Oz.
(Dorothy, Scarecrow, Tin Man, Lion and Toto continue their journey to the Emerald City.)
The Poppy field/Emerald City
(As Dorothy and her friends continue walking down the yellow brick road the camera pans to inside the castle where the Wicked Witch is looking at Dorothy and her friends in her crystal ball. At her side is Nikko the leader of the winged monkeys.)
Wicked Witch of the West: Aha! (Cackling) So you won't take warning, eh? All the worse for you, then. I'll take care of you now instead of later! Ah! (Goes to get her potion) When I gain those ruby slippers, my power will be the greatest in Oz! And now my beauties something with poison in it I think. With poison in it. But attractive to the eye and soothing the smell! (Chuckling) Poppies. Poppies! Poppies will put them to sleep. (The camera switches to the poppy field) Sleep. Now they'll sleep.
(Just then Dorothy and her friends made it through the forest then they finally saw Emerald City.)
Dorothy Gale: There's Emerald City! Oh, we're almost there! At last! At last! It's beautiful, isn't it? Just like I knew it would be. He really must be a wonderful wizard to live in the city like that.
Cowardly Lion: Well, com on then what are we waiting for?
Scarecrow: Nothing! Let's hurry!
Dorothy Gale: Yes, let's run! (They start running in the poppy field)
Scarecrow: Come on! Come on!
Tin Man: Hurry! Hurry!
Scarecrow: Oh, look! Come on! Come on!
Tin Man: Look at the scenery. It's wonderful! Emerald City!
Dorothy Gale: (Feeling tired) Oh. What's happening? What is it? I can't run anymore. I'm so sleepy.
Scarecrow: Here, give us your hand and we'll pull you along.
Dorothy Gale: Oh, no, please. I have to rest for just a minute. Toto. Where's Toto? (Toto is asleep in the field and Dorothy lies down in the field.)
Scarecrow: Oh, you can't rest now. We're nearly there. (Tin Man begins to cry) Don't cry. You'll rust yourself again!
Cowardly Lion: Coming to think of it, forty winks wouldn't be bad.
Scarecrow: Don't you start it too! (He and Tin Man hold Lion)
Tin Man: No! We ought to try and carry Dorothy.
Scarecrow: I don't think I could, but we could try.
Tin Man: Let's.
Scarecrow: Yes. (Then Lion collapsed on the field)
Tin Man: Now look at him. This is terrible!
Scarecrow: Here, Tin Man, help me. (They desperately tried to help a sleeping Dorothy) Oh, this is terrible! I can't budge her an inch. This is the spell, this is!
Tin Man: (Realizing) It's the Wicked Witch! What'll we do? (Screaming) Help! Help!
Scarecrow: It's no use screaming at a time like this. Nobody will hear you! (Shouting) Help! Help! Help!
(As Tin Man continues crying an image of Glinda appears on camera and she waves her wand making the snow fall from the sky.)
Scarecrow: It's snowing!
Tin Man: No, it isn't.
Scarecrow: Yes, it is! Maybe that'll help! Oh, but couldn't help! (Dorothy wakes up) (Realizing) It does help! Dorothy you're waking up!
Dorothy Gale: (Sitting up) Oh. Oh.
Cowardly Lion: (Waking up and yawning) Unusual weather we're having, ain't it? (Dorothy and Scarecrow chuckling)
Dorothy Gale: (Shocked upon seeing Tin Man rusted) Look! He's rusted again. Oh, give me the oilcan, quick!
Scarecrow: (Giving her the oilcan) Here. He is rusted.
Dorothy Gale: (Oiling Tin Man) Here. Quick! Oh! Oh!
(Back at the Wicked Witch's castle the Wicked Witch looks on as Dorothy unrusts Tin Man.)
Wicked Witch of the West: (Furiously) Curses! Curses! Somebody always helps that girl. (Nikko hands her the golden cap) But shoes or no shoes, I'm still great enough to conquer her. And woe to those who try to stop me! (She angrily throws the cap across the room and the camera switches back to the poppy field)
Dorothy Gale: Come on, let's get out of here. Look! Emerald City is closer and prettier than ever!
Optimistic Voices: (Singing) You're out of the woods. You're out of the dark. You're out of the night. Step into the sun.Step into the light. (Dorothy and her friends come out of the poppy field and heads for the Emerald City) Keep straight ahead for The most glorious place. On the face of the earth or the sky. Hold on to your breath. Hold on to your heart. Hold on to your hope. March up to that gate and bid it open.
(The camera switches to the Wicked Witch she takes her broomstick and she heads to the window cackling.)
Wicked Witch of the West: (To her broom) To the Emerald City, as fast as lightning!
(She flies out the window on her broomstick as she cackles and she heads for the Emerald City. Then the camera switches outside of the Emerald City as Dorothy and her friends head for the green gate.)
Optimistic Voices: (Singing) You're out of the woods. You're out of the dark. You're out of the night. Step into the sun. Step into the light. March up to that gate and bid it open. Open.
(Dorothy rings the door bell and the doorman sticks his head out of the door's porthole)
Doorman: Who rang that bell?
Dorothy and friends: (Together) We did!
Doorman: Can't you read?
Scarecrow: Read what?
Doorman: The notice!
Dorothy Gale and Scarecrow: (Together) What notice?
Doorman: It's on the door! As plain on the nose on my face! (Groaning in frustration and does a tsk expression, he puts the notice on the door and goes back inside)
Dorothy and friends: (Reading the notice together) "Bell out of order. Please knock." (Dorothy knocks the door)
Doorman: Well! That's more like it! Now, state your business.
Dorothy and her friends: (Together) We wanna see the Wizard.
Doorman: (Gasps) The Wizard? But nobody can see the great Oz. Nobody's ever seen the great Oz! Even I've never seen him!
Dorothy Gale: Well, then how do you know there is one?
Doorman: Because he... (Frustrated) Oh! You're wasting my time!
Dorothy Gale: Oh, please. Please, sir. I've got to see the Wizard. The Good Witch of the North sent me.
Doorman: Prove it!
Scarecrow: She's wearing the ruby slippers that she gave her. (Dorothy shows the doorman the ruby slippers)
Doorman: (Understands) Oh! So she is! Well, bust my buttons! Why didn't you say that in the first place? (Dorothy and her friends smiled) That's a horse of a different color! Come on in! (Laughing joyfully)
(The doors open as Dorothy and her friends see inside the Emerald City. The Ozian citizens all wear green clothes.)
The Merry old land of Oz
(A coachman arrives as Dorothy and her friends enter the Emerald City.)
Carriage driver: Cabby! Cabby! Just what you're looking for. Take you any place in the city, we does.
Dorothy Gale: Would you take us to see the Wizard?
Carriage driver: The Wizard? The Wizard? Yes, of course. But first I'll take you to a little place where you can tidy up a bit up.
Dorothy Gale: Oh, thank you so much! (Dorothy and her friends go in the carriage) We've been gone such a long, and we feel so mess. (Sees the horse purple) What kind of a horse is that? I've never seen a horse like that before!
Carriage driver: No, and never will again, I fancy. There's only one of them, and he's it. He's the horse of a different color you've heard tell about. (Laughing among with Dorothy and her friends then gives them a ride)
Ozians: (Singing) Ha-ha-ha! Ho-ho-ho! And a couple of tra-la-las. That's how we laugh the day. In the merry old land of Oz. Bzz, bzz, bzz! Chirp, chirp, chirp! And a couple of la-di-das. That's how the crickets crick all day. In the merry old land of Oz. We get up at twelve. And start to work at one. Take an hour for lunch. And then at two we're done. Jolly good fun! Ha-ha-ha! Ho-ho-ho! And a couple of tra-la-las. That's how we laugh a day in the merry old land of Oz. (Dorothy and her friends are delivered to the Wash and Brush up Co.) Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha! That's how we laugh the day away with the Ho-ho-ho! Ha-ha-ha! In the merry old land of Oz.
(The scene changes where the beauticians are stuffing new straw in Scarecrow.)
Scarecrow's beauticians: (Singing) Pat, pat here. Pat, pat there. And a couple of brand-new straws. That's how we keep you young and fair. In the merry old land of Oz.
Tin Man's beauticians (Singing while polishing him) Rub, rub here. Rub, rub there. Whether you're tin or bronze. That's how we keep you in repair. In the merry old land of Oz.
Dorothy's beautician: (Singing while grooming Dorothy's hair) We can make a dimpled smile. Out of frown.
Dorothy Gale: Can you even dye my eyes, to match my gown?
Dorothy Gale: Jolly old town!
Lion's beauticians: (Singing while clipping his claws) Clip, clip here. Clip, clip there. We give the roughest claws.
Cowardly Lion: (Singing) The certain air of savoir-faire. In the merry old land of Oz. (Dorothy and her friends laugh as they leave the grooming place)
Ozians; (Singing) That's how we laugh the day in the merry old land of Oz. That's how we laugh the day away. With the ha-ha-ha. In the merry old land of Oz.
(The Ozians laugh as they wave to Dorothy and her friends, but suddenly the Witch appears in the sky flying on her broomstick while cackling madly and she writes a threatening message with black smoke in the sky.)
Cowardly Lion: (Nervously to Dorothy) Who's her? Who's her?
Dorothy Gale: It's the witch! She's followed us here!
Cowardly Lion: (Reading the message in the sky) "Surrender, Dorothy." (Dorothy gasped in fear)
Ozian woman: (Confused) Dorothy? Who's Dorothy?
Ozian woman 2: The Wizard will explain it!
Ozian man: To the Wizard!
Ozian man 2: To the Wizard!
Dorothy Gale: Dear! Whatever shall we do?
Scarecrow: Well, we better hurry if we're going to see the Wizard! (Dorothy and her friends among with the worried crowd rushed to the WIzard's palace.)
Wizard's guard: (Calming the crowd) Here! Here, here! Everything is all right. Stop that now, just. It's all right! Everything is all right! The great and powerful Oz has got matters well in hand. I hope. So you can all go home and there's nothing to worry about! Get out of here. Now go on. Go on home. Go home.
(The worried crowd goes home as Dorothy and her friends walk up to the guard.)
Dorothy Gale: If you please sir, we want to see the Wizard right away. All four of us.
Wizard's guard: Orders are, nobody can see the great Oz! Not nobody, not nohow!
Dorothy Gale: Oh, but please! It's very important.
Cowardly Lion; And I got a permanent just for the occasion.
Wizard's guard: (Stubbornly) Not nobody, not nohow!
Scarecrow: But she's Dorothy!
Wizard's guard: (Looks at Dorothy) The witch's Dorothy? (Understands) Well, that makes a difference. Just uh wait here and I'll announce you at once.
(The guard goes inside the palace to talk to the Wizard while Dorothy and her friends wait outside.)
If I were King of the Forest
Scarecrow: Did you hear that? He'll announce us at once. I've as good as got my brain.
Tin Man: I can fairly hear my heart beating.
Dorothy Gale: I'll be home in time for supper.
Cowardly Lion: In another hour. I'll be king of the forest. Long live the king! (Singing) If I were king of the forest. Not queen. Not duke. Not prince. My regal robes of the forest. Would be satin. Not cotton. Not chintz. I'd command each thing. Be it fish or fowl. With a woof! And a woof! And a royal growl. As I'd click my heel. All the trees would kneel. And the mountains bow. And the bull kowtow. And the sparrow would take wing. If I... If I were king. Each rabbit 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 king. (Dorothy, Scarecrow, and Tin Man roll down the rug then they wrap him in rug like a royal cape. Tin Man breaks the flower pot with his axe making it look like a crown and placed it on Lion's head) Monarch of all I survey. (Chuckling) Monarch. Of all I survey. (Dorothy, Scarecrow, Tin Man bow to him.)
Dorothy Gale: Your majesty, If you were king, you wouldn't be afraid of anything?
Cowardly Lion: Not nobody, not nohow!
Tin Man: Not even a rhinoceros?
Cowardly Lion: Imposserous!
Dorothy Gale: How about a hippopotamus?
Cowardly Lion: Why, I'd trash him from top to bottom-us.
Dorothy Gale: Supposing you met an elephant?
Cowardly Lion: I'd knot him in in cellophant!
Scarecrow: What if it were a brontosaurus?
Cowardly Lion: I'd show him who's king of the forest!
Dorothy Gale, Scarecrow, and Tin Man: (Together) How?
Cowardly Lion: How? (Removes the rug) 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 spinkx the Seventh Wonder? Courage! What makes the dawn come up like thunder? Courage! What makes Hottentot so hot? What puts the ape in apricot? What have they got that I ain't got?
Dorothy Gale, Scarecrow and Tin Man: (Together) Courage!
Cowardly Lion: (Smiling) You can say that again.(Confused) Huh?
Meeting the Wizard
Wizard's guard:(Growling angrily and coming out) The wizard says go away! (Goes back in the palace)
Dorothy and her friends: (Shocked together) Go away?
Scarecrow: (Sadly) Looks like we came a long way for nothing.
Dorothy Gale: (Crying and sitting down) And I was so happy. I though I was on my way home.
Tin Man: (Comforting Dorothy) Don't cry Dorothy, we're gonna get you to the Wizard.
Scarecrow: (Agreeing with Tin Man) We certainly are. (The guard looks on regretfully)
Dorothy Gale: (Tearfully) Auntie Em was so good to me. And I never appreciated it. Running away and hurting her feelings. Professor Marvel said she was sick. She may be dying and It's all my fault. ( The Wizard's guard starts to cry) I'll never forgive myself. Never, never, never. (Scarecrow and Tin Man continue to comfort Dorothy)
Wizard's guard: (Tearfully to Dorothy) Please don't cry anymore. I'll get you into the Wizard somehow. Come on. I had an Aunt Em myself once. (Continues crying and opens the double doors. Dorothy and her friends get up and walk into the entrance.)
Cowardly Lion: (Nervously) Wait a minute, fellas. I was just thinking, I really don't want to see the Wizard this much. I better wait for you outside.
Scarecrow: (Concerned) What's the matter?
Tin Man: Oh, he's just scared again.
Dorothy Gale: Don't you know the Wizard is gonna give you some courage?
Cowardly Lion: I'd be too scared to ask him for it.
Dorothy Gale: Well, then, we'll ask for him for you.
Cowardly Lion; I'd sooner wait outside.
Dorothy Gale: Why? Why?
Cowardly Lion: Because I'm still scared! (Crying then he pulls his own tail and yelped)
Scarecrow: What happened?
Cowardly Lion: Somebody pulled my tail.
Scarecrow: You did it yourself.
Cowardly Lion: I... (Understands) Oh.
Scarecrow: Here. Come on. (They slowly took one step forward)
Wizard of Oz: (Booming voice) Come forward! (The chamber doors open)
Cowardly Lion: Tell me when it's over. (Dorothy and her friends walk into the Wizard's chamber as Lion covers his eyes) Look at that. Look at that! (Continues crying) I wanna go home!
(The Wizard appears as a green disembodied head above the throne with roaring fires.)
Wizard of Oz: (Booming voice) I am Oz the great and powerful! (To Dorothy) Who are you? Who are you?
Dorothy Gale: (Comes forward, Nervously) If you please, I am Dorothy the small and meek. We've come to ask you.
Wizard of Oz: (Booming voice) Silence!
Dorothy Gale: (Scared, running back to her friends) Oh! Oh! Jiminy crickets!
Wizard of Oz; (Booming voice) The great and powerful Oz knows why you have come. Step forward Tin Man! (Tin Man comes forward) You dare to come to me for a heart, do you? You clinking, clanking, clattering collection of collginous junk!
Tin Man: (Shivering nervously) Uh, yes-yes sir. Yes, Your Honor. You see a while back, we were walking down the yellow brick road and...
Wizard of Oz:(Booming voice) Quiet! (Tin Man felt terrified and walks back to the group) And you, Scarecrow have the effrontery to ask for a brain you billowing bale of bovine fodder!
Scarecrow: (Nervously) Yes, Your Honor, I mean, Your Excellency. I mean, Your Wizardry! (Bowing)
Wizard of Oz: (Booming voice) Enough! (Scarecrow goes back to the group.) And you, Lion! (Lion steps forward) Well? (Lion is unable to answer and he faints on the floor as Dorothy, Scarecrow, Tin Man kneel down to help him wake up.)
Dorothy Gale: (Furiously) You ought to be ashamed of yourself. Frightening him like that when he came to you for help!
Wizard of Oz: (Booming voice) Silence, whippersnapper! The beneficent Oz has every intention of granting your requests.
Cowardly Lion: (Surprised while waking up) What's that? What'd he say? Huh? What'd he say? (Dorothy and Scarecrow help him up)
Wizard of Oz: But first you must prove yourselves worthy by performing a very small task. Bring me the broomstick of the Witch of the West.
Tin Man: (Stammering nervously) But if we do that, we'll have to kill her to get it!
Wizard of Oz: Bring me her broomstick and I'll grant your requests. Now go!
Cowardly Lion: But what if she kills us first?
Wizard of Oz: (Yelling) I said go!
(Lion gets frightened and runs out of the throne room then he jumps out through the glass window. The camera fades to black.)
Haunted Forest/Dorothy and Toto captured by Winged Monkeys
(The camera changes to the Haunted Forest as it shows the gnarled face tree then the camera pans to the sign that says "Haunted Forest, Witches Castle, 1 mile and "I'd turn back if were you." Dorothy and her friends arrive at the haunted forest carrying weapons then stop to look at the sign.)
Cowardly Lion: (Reading the sign) "I'd turn back if I were you." (Lion nods his head and whirls around then Dorothy, Scarecrow, and Tin Man stop him. They shook their heads and Lion tries to roar but he hears scary noises. He tried to run away but Tin Man and Scarecrow firmly grab him.)
Scarecrow: I believe there's spooks around here.
Tin Man: That's ridiculous! Spooks. That's silly.
Cowardly Lion: Don't you believe in spooks?
Tin Man: No. Why only... Oh! (He's suddenly lifted into the air as Dorothy, Scarecrow, and Lion look up then Tin Man lands on the ground. Dorothy and Scarecrow run to Tin Man's aide.)
Scarecrow: (Helping up Tin Man among with Dorothy) Are you all right?
Cowardly Lion: (Chanting nervously) I do believe in spooks, I do believe in spooks, I do, I do, I do, I do.
(The camera switches to the Witch's castle as the witch and her winged monkeys look at Lion in the crystal ball.)
Wicked Witch of the West: (Laughs to Lion) You'll believe in more than that before I'm finished with you. (Walks up to Nikko) Take your army to the Haunted Forest and bring me that girl and her dog. Do what you want with the others, but I want her alive and unharmed. They'll give no trouble I promised you that. I've sent a little insect on ahead to take flight out of them. (Laughs) Take special care of the ruby slippers. I want those most of all. Now, fly! Fly! Bring me that girl and her slippers! Fly! Fly! Fly! (The winged monkeys fly to the Haunted Forest.)
(The winged monkeys approach from the sky. Dorothy and her friends get frightened as they run the winged monkeys swoop down to the ground. Dorothy is chased by two winged monkeys.)
Dorothy Gale: Help! Help!
Tin Man: (Surrounded by winged monkeys) Go away now! (One of them snatch his axe)
Scarecrow: Help! Help! Oh! (The winged monkeys tear him apart)
Dorothy Gale: Toto! Toto! Help! (Two winged monkeys grab her she screams as they carry her off. One winged monkey picks up Toto and carries him off as well. All of the winged monkeys fly back to the Witch's castle.)
Scarecrow: Help! Help! Help! (Tin Man and Lion kneel down to check on him.)
Tin Man: Well, what happened to you?
Scarecrow: They tore my legs off and threw them over there! Then they took my chest out and threw it over there!
Tin Man: Well, that's you all over.
Cowardly Lion: They sure knocked the stuffings out of you, didn't they?
Scarecrow: Don't stand there talking. Put me together. We've got to find Dorothy!
Tin Man: (Starts to fix Scarecrow) Now, let's see...
Witches Castle/Dorothy imprisoned
(The camera switches to the Witch's castle)
Wicked Witch of the West: (Petting Toto mockingly) What a nice little dog. (Puts Toto in the basket and she turns to Dorothy) And you, my dear. What an unexpected pleasure. It's so kind of you to visit me in my loneliness.
Dorothy Gale: (Fearfully) What are you gonna do with my dog? Give him back to me!
Wicked Witch of the West: All in good time, my little pretty. All in good time.
Dorothy Gale: (Begging) Oh, please give me back my dog.
Wicked Witch of the West: Certainly, certainly, when you give me those slippers.
Dorothy Gale: But the Good Witch of the North told me not to.
Wicked Witch of the West: Very well. (To Nikko) Throw that basket in the river and drown him.
Dorothy Gale: No, no. Here, you can have your old slippers but give me back Toto!
Wicked Witch of the West: That's a good little girl. I knew you'd see reason. (She placed her fingers on the ruby slippers but gets zapped which causes her to scream in pain.)
Dorothy Gale: (Apologetically) Oh I'm sorry, I didn't do it. Can I still have my dog?
Wicked Witch of the West: (Yelling) 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'll hurt the spell. (Toto leaps out of the basket and runs out the door.)
Dorothy Gale: Run, Toto, run!
Wicked Witch of the West: (To Nikko) Catch him, you fool!
(Toto runs down the staircase and scampers over drawbridge as the Winkie guards throw spears at him.)
Dorothy Gale: Run, Toto, run! Run, Toto, run! He got away! He got away!
Wicked Witch of the West: (Exasperated) Oh! Which is more that you will! Drat, you and your dog! You've been more trouble to me than worth one way or another. But it'll soon be over now! (Shows her the large hourglass that has blood-red sand) Do you see that? That's how much longer you've got to be alive. (Dorothy is on the verge of tears) It isn't long, my pretty. It isn't long! I can't wait forever to get those shoes!
(Then she stalks away and locks Dorothy in the tower room. Dorothy starts to cry and sits down.)
Dorothy Gale: (Crying) I'm frightened. I'm frightened, Auntie Em! I'm frightened.(As she cries the image of Auntie Em appears in the crystal ball.)
Auntie Em: (Worried) Dorothy! Dorothy! Where are you? It's me. it's Auntie Em. We're trying to find you. Where are you?
Dorothy Gale: I'm here in Oz, Auntie Em. I'm locked up in the Witch's castle and I'm trying to get home to you, Auntie Em! (The image of Auntie Em disappeared) (Begging fearfully) Oh, Auntie Em, don't go away! I'm frightened! Come back! Come back! (The image of the Wicked Witch of the West appears in the crystal ball)
Wicked Witch of the West: (Mockingly) "Auntie Em, Auntie Em! Come back! I'll give you Auntie Em my pretty! (Cackling evilly and the image of the Witch disappears. Dorothy continues to cry as sand in the hourglass comes down.)
Toto's escape/March of the Winkies
(The scene changes where Toto climbs down the rocky mountain and he goes back to the Haunted Forest. Tin Man and Lion finish putting Scarecrow back together as Toto approaches them.)
Tin Man: Look! There's Toto. Where'd he come from? (Toto barks)
Scarecrow: Why, don't you see? He's come to take us to Dorothy. Come on, fellas! (Scarecrow, Tin Man and Lion follow Toto.)
(The camera switches where Scarecrow, Tin Man, Lion, and Toto climb up the rocky mountain. Tin Man holds onto Lion's tail he nearly lost his balance and the rock falls down.)
Cowardly Lion: I hope my strength holds out.
Tin Man: I hope your tail holds out!
(Lion, Tin Man and Scarecrow see the Witch's castle.)
Cowardly Lion: (Softly, pointing to the castle) What's that? What's that?
Tin Man: (Softly) That's the castle of the Wicked Witch.
Scarecrow: (Softly) Dorothy's in that awful place?
Tin Man: (Crying fearfully) Oh, I hate to think of her in there. We've got to get her out.
Scarecrow: Don't cry now. We haven't got the oilcan with us, and you've been squeaking enough as it is.
Cowardly Lion: (Sees someone and points) Who's them? Who's them?
(Outside of the Witch's castle.The Winkie guards are marching and they chant.)
Scarecrow: I've got a plan how to get in there.
Cowardly Lion: Fine. He's got a plan.
Scarecrow: And you're gonna lead us.
Cowardly Lion: Yeah. (Surprised) Me?
Scarecrow: Yes, you.
Cowardly Lion: I gotta get her out of there?
Tin Man: That's right.
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. Ruff! I may not come out alive, but I'm going in there. There's only one thing I want you fellas to do.
Scarecrow and Tin Man: (Together) What's that?
Cowardly Lion: Talk me out of it. (Lion tries to leave)
Tin Man: (Stopping Lion among with Scarecrow) No, you don't.
Cowardly Lion: Now, wait a minute.
Scarecrow: (Urging Lion) Up!
(The camera switches where the hourglass is running out. The camera switches back where Lion, Scarecrow, Tin Man, and Toto watch the Winkie guards march. Toto barks and the trio shushed him then Scarecrow holds Toto safely. The three Winkie guards approach them as Lion felt scared and whimpered, Scarecrow and Tin Man shush him. The Winkie guards come down and ambushed them. Then Scarecrow, Tin Man, Lion fight back the three guards overpowering them. Tin Man, Scarecrow, and Lion wear the guard's uniforms and Toto is holding a red tassel in his mouth. The Winkie guards form a line to march into the castle.)
Scarecrow: Come on, I've got another idea.
Cowardly Lion; Do you think it would be polite dropping in like this?
(Scarecrow, Tin Man, Lion, and Toto come down and follow the Winkie guards into the castle as Lion attempts to hide his tail but can't. The castle drawbridge closes and Scarecrow, Tin Man, and Lion stop and think.)
Tin Man: Where do we go now?
Cowardly Lion: Yeah. (Toto barks and leds the way upstairs)
Scarecrow: There! (They run upstairs to the tower and Toto shows them the locked door.) Wait! We better make sure. (To Dorothy) Dorothy, are you in there?
Cowardly Lion: It's us!
Dorothy Gale: (Running to the door) Yes! It's me! She's locked me in!
Cowardly Lion: Listen, fellas. It's her. We gotta get her out! Open this door!
Dorothy Gale: (Terrified) Oh, hurry! Please hurry! (She looks at the hourglass running out) The hourglass is almost empty!
Tin Man: Stand back! (He starts chopping the door with his axe as the hourglass runs out then Dorothy comes out and Scarecrow gives Toto to Dorothy)
Dorothy Gale: (Hugging Toto) Oh, Toto! Toto! (Hugging Lion) Oh, Lion!
Cowardly Lion; Dorothy!
Dorothy Gale: (Hugging Tin Man) I knew you'd come! I knew you would!
Scarecrow: Hurry, we've got no time to lose! (They run down the stairs and the doors suddenly close.)
Wicked Witch of the West: (Cackling) Going so soon? I wouldn't hear of it. Why, my little party's just beginning.
Cowardly Lion: (Nervously) Trapped. Trapped like mice...rats.
(The Wicked Witch cackles as the Winkie guards arrive with their spears and Toto yelps fearfully as they point their spears at them trapping them.)
Wicked Witch of the West: (Giggling) That's right. Don't hurt them right away. We'll let them think about it a little first. (She cackles as Scarecrow looks the chandelier which gives him the idea. The Wicked Witch shrieks and throws the hourglass to the floor below which it bursts into flames and destroyed. Scarecrow cuts the rope with Tin Man's axe which causes the chandelier to land on the Winkie guards trapping them.) Seize them! Seize them! (Dorothy and her friends run for their lives) Stop them, you fools stop them! Seize them! Seize them! (She among with Nikko run with the guards then Dorothy and her friends go up the stairs.) There they go! Now we've got them! Half of you go this way, half of you go that way. Hurry! Hurry!
(Dorothy and her friends run down the stairs and along the parapets of the castle.)
Cowardly Lion: Where do we go now?
Scarecrow: This way. Come on! (They see the Winkie guards come down the stairs) Back! Back! (Half of the Winkie guards come down as well. Dorothy and her friends scream as the Winkie guards corner them with their spears trapping them once again.)
The Wicked Witch's Death
(The Wicked Witch arrives among with Nikko)
Wicked Witch of the West: (Cackling) Well! Ring around the rosie! A pocket full of spears! Thought you'd be pretty foxy, didn't you? Well, the last to go will see the first three to go before her! And her mangy little dog too! (Dorothy and her friends cringe in fear then the Wicked Witch gets the flames with her broomstick) (To Scarecrow) How about a little fire, Scarecrow? (Sets his arm on fire and cackles)
Scarecrow: (Frightened) Help! I'm burning! I'm burning! (Dorothy grabs the bucket of water)
Wicked Witch of the West: Don't throw that water! (Dorothy tosses the water to put out the flame then it splashed on the Wicked Witch which causes her to scream) You cursed brat! Look what you've done! (Beginning to melt) 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? Look out! Look out! I'm going. (Her cries fade out as Dorothy and her friends look down. Toto sniffs her black cloak and hat the only remaining parts and Nikko sees that the Wicked Witch is dead.)
Winkie Guard Leader: (Shocked, to Dorothy) She's... She's dead, you killed her.
Dorothy Gale: (Apologetically) I didn't mean to kill her, really I didn't. It's just that he was on fire.
Winkie Guard leader: Hail to Dorothy! The Wicked Witch is dead!
Winkie guards: (Together and hailing to Dorothy) Hail! Hail to Dorothy! The Wicked Witch is dead! (Dorothy smiled knowing that the Winkie guards are free.)
Dorothy Gale: (To her friends) The broom. (To Winkie guard leader) May we have it?
Winkie Guard Leader: (Gives her the defunct broomstick) Please. And take it with you.
Dorothy Gale: (Takes the broomstick) Oh, thank you so much! Now we can go back to the Wizard and tell him the Wicked Witch is dead!
Winkie Guards: (Together) The Wicked Witch is dead!
Wizard revealed/Heroic rewards from the Wizard
(The scene changes back to the Wizard's throne room.)
Wizard of Oz: (Booming voice) Can I believe my eye? Why have you come back?
Dorothy Gale: (Shows him the broomstick) Please, sir. We've done what you've told us. We brought you the broomstick of the Wicked Witch of the West. We melted her. (Placed the broomstick by the throne)
Wizard of Oz: (Impressed) Ah, you liquidated her, eh? Very resourceful.
Dorothy Gale: Yes, sir. So we'd like you to keep your promise to us, if you please, sir.
Wizard of Oz: (Booming voice) Not so fast. Not so fast! I'll have to give the matter a little thought. Go away and come back tomorrow.
Dorothy Gale: (Shocked) Tomorrow? Oh, but I wanna go home now!
Tin Man: (Angrily) You've had plenty of time already!
Cowardly Lion: (Agreeing with Tin Man) Yeah!
Wizard of Oz: (Booming voice) Do not arouse the wrath of the great and powerful Oz! I said come back tomorrow! (Toto walks over to the booth)
Dorothy Gale: If you were really great and powerful, you'd keep your promises.
Wizard of Oz: Do you presume to criticize the great Oz? (Toto pulls the green curtain this is the ordinary man who is pulling levers controlling the image.) You ungrateful creatures! Think yourselves lucky that I'm giving you audience tomorrow instead of 20 years from now! (Looks over his shoulder) Oh! (Speaking into microphone) The great Oz has spoken! Oh! (Closes the curtain and speaks into the microphone) Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain! (Dorothy walks up and pulls the curtain) The great and Oz has spoken.
Dorothy Gale: Who are you?
Wizard of Oz: (Speaking into microphone) I am the great and powerful... (Normal voice) Wizard of Oz.
Dorothy Gale: You are? I don't believe you.
Wizard of Oz: (Ashamed) I'm afraid it's true. There's no other Wizard except me.
Scarecrow: (Angrily) You humbug!
Cowardly Lion: (Agreeing with Scarecrow) Yeah.
Wizard of Oz: Yes, that's exactly so. I'm a humbug.
Dorothy Gale: Oh, you're a very bad man!
Wizard of Oz: Oh, no, my dear. I'm a very good man. I'm just a very bad wizard.
Scarecrow: What about the heart that you promised Tin Man? And the courage that you promised Cowardly Lion?
Tin Man and Cowardly Lion: (Together) And Scarecrow's brain?
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 can 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. Therefore ,by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Universitatus Committeeatum E Pluribus Unum, I hereby confer upon you the honorary degree of Th.D. (Presents Scarecrow a diploma)
Scarecrow: (Surprised) Th.D?
Wizard of Oz: That's Doctor of Thinkology..
Scarecrow: (Places his finger on his head) The sum of the square roots of two sides of an isosceles triangle is equal to square root of the remaining side. (Happily) Oh, joy! Rapture! I've got a brain! How can I ever thank you enough?
Wizard of Oz: Well, you can't. (To 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. Back where I come from, we have men who are called heroes. Once a year, they take their fortitude out of moth balls and parade it down the main street of the city and they have no more courage than you have. But they have one thing you haven't got a medal. Therefore, for meritorious conduct, extraordinary valor, consipicuous bravery against Wicked Witches, I award you the Triple Cross. (Presents him a medal and placed it on his fur) You are now a member of the Legion of Courage. (Kisses Lion)
Cowardly Lion: (Timidly) Shucks, folks, I'm speechless. (Chuckling)
Wizard of Oz: (To Tin Man) 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.
Tin Man: But I still want one.
Wizard of Oz: Back where I come from, there are men who do nothing all day but good deeds. They are called phila er- Good-deed-doers. And their hearts are no bigger than yours. But they have one thing you haven't got. A testimonial. Therefore, in consideration of your kindness, I take pleasure at this time in presenting you with a small token of our esteem and affection (Presents Tin Man a heart-shaped watch) And remember, my sentimental friend that a heart is not judged by how much you love but by how much you are loved by others.
Tin Man: (Smiling) Ah! (Holds up the watch to his ear) Oh! It ticks! Listen! Look, it ticks! (Shows the watch to Dorothy, Scarecrow, and Lion)
Cowardly Lion: (Showing them his medal) Read what my medal says. "Courage." Ain't it the truth? Ain't it the truth?
Dorothy Gale: Oh, they're all wonderful.
Scarecrow: Hey, what about Dorothy?
Tin Man Yes, how about Dorothy?
Cowardly Lion: Yeah. Dorothy next.
Wizard of Oz: Yes. Dorothy.
Dorothy Gale: Oh, I don't think there's anything in that black bag for me.
Wizard of Oz: Well, you force me into a catactlysmic decision. The only way to get Dorothy back to Kansas is for me to take her there myself.
Dorothy Gale: (Gasping happily) Oh, will you? Could you? Oh! Oh, but are you a clever enough wizard to manage it?
Wizard of Oz: Child, you cut me to the quick! I'm an old Kansas man myself, born and bred in the western wilderness premier balloonist par excellence to the Miracle Wonderland Carnival Company. Until one day, while performing feats of stratospheric skill never before attempted by civilized man an unfortunate phenomena occurred. The balloon failed to return to the fair.
Cowardly Lion: It did?
Dorothy Gale: Weren't you frightened?
Wizard of Oz: Frightened? You are talking to a man who has laughed in the face of death sneered at doom and chuckled at catastrophe. I was petrified. Then suddenly, the wind changed and the balloon floated down into this noble city, where I was instantly acclaimed Oz, the first wizard deluxe. Times being what they were, I accepted the job retaining my balloon against the advent of a quick getaway. (Chucking) And in that balloon, my dear Dorothy, you and I will return to the land of E Pluribus Unum.
The Wizard's departure/Glinda returns
(The scene changes to the Emerald City's square filled with Ozian people. Dorothy, Toto and the Wizard are in the hot-air balloon which says "STATE FAIR OMAHA.")
Wizard of Oz: My friends. I mean, my friends! (Ozians cheering) This is positively the finest exhibition ever to be shown...be that as it may. I, your Wizard per ardua and altar am about to embark upon a hazardous and technically unexplainable journey into the outer stratosphere! (Ozians cheering) To confer, converse and otherwise hobmob with my brother wizards. And I hearby decree that until what time if any I return the Scarecrow, by virtue of his highly superior brains shall rule in my stead assisted by the Tin Man by virtue of his magnificent heart and the Lion, by virtue of his courage. Obey them as you would. Thank you. (Toto growls upon seeing the cat in the woman's arms. Toto jumps out of Dorothy's arms)
Dorothy Gale: (Comes out of the balloon) Oh, Toto! Come back! Toto! (To Wizard) Oh, don't go without me. I'll be right back.
Tin Man: Stop that dog! (Scarecrow and Lion run to help Dorothy get Toto back)
Wizard of Oz: (Starts to float away as the ropes get loose) This is a highly irregular procedure. This is absolutely unprecedented! I'll ruin my exit!
Dorothy Gale: (Shocked, pleading to the Wizard) Come back! Come back! Don't go without me! Please come back!
Wizard of Oz: I can't come back! I don't know how it works! (To Ozians) Goodbye, folks!
Ozians: (Waving to Wizard) Goodbye!
Dorothy Gale: (Sadly) Oh, now I'll never get home.
Cowardly Lion: Stay with us then, Dorothy. We all love you. We don't want you to go.
Dorothy Gale: Well, that's very kind of you. But this could never be like Kansas. Auntie Em must have stopped wondering what happened to me by now. (To Scarecrow) Oh, Scarecrow what am I going to do?
Scarecrow: (Points and sees the bubble) Look! Here's someone who can help you!
(The pink bubble comes down from the sky. Glinda comes out of her bubble as the Ozians kneel to her then she comes to Dorothy and her friends.)
Dorothy's farewell/There's no place like home
Dorothy Gale: Oh, will you help me? Can you help me?
Glinda the Good Witch of the North: You don't need to be helped any longer. You've always had the power to go back to Kansas.
Dorothy Gale: (Surprised) I have?
Scarecrow: Then why didn't you tell her before?
Glinda the Good Witch of the North: Because she wouldn't have believed me. She has to learn it for herself.
Tin Man: What have you learned, Dorothy?
Dorothy Gale: Well, I think that it,,,that it wasn't enough just to 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 backyard. Because if it isn't there I never really lost it to begin with. Is that right?
Glinda the Good Witch of the North: (Nodding her head) That's all it is.
Scarecrow: But that's so easy! I should've thought for you.
Tin Man: I should've felt it in my heart.
Glinda the Good Witch of the North: No, she had to find it out for herself. (To Dorothy) Now those magic slippers will take home in two seconds.
Dorothy Gale: Oh, Toto too?
Glinda the Good Witch of North: Toto too.
Dorothy Gale: Now?
Glinda the Good Witch of the North: Whatever you wish.
Dorothy Gale: (Happily) Oh, dear. That's too wonderful to be true! (Sadly) Oh, it's... It's gonna be so hard to say goodbye. (To her friends) I love you all too. (To Tin Man) Goodbye, Tin Man. Oh, don't cry. You'll rust so dreadfully. Here. Here's your oilcan. (Gives him the oilcan and kissed him) Goodbye.
Tin Man: (Tearfully) Now I know i've got a heart because it's breaking.
Dorothy Gale: (Kisses Lion) Goodbye Lion. I know it isn't right but I'm gonna miss the way you used to holler for help before you found your courage.
Cowardly Lion: But, I never would have found it if it hadn't been for you.
Dorothy Gale: (Hugging Scarecrow, Tearfully) I think I'll miss you most of all. (Kissed his cheek)
Glinda the Good Witch of the North: Are you ready now?
Dorothy Gale: (Nodding her head) Yes. (To Toto) Say goodbye, Toto. (Makes Toto wave to her friends and her friends wave goodbye to her) (To Glinda) Yes, I'm ready now.
Glinda the Good Witch of the North: Then close your eyes and tap your heels together three times.(Dorothy taps her heels three times) And think to yourself "There's no place like home." (She waves her wand slowly)
Dorothy Gale: There's no place like home. (She continues repeating the phrase and the spiral spins downward onto Dorothy. Then the farmhouse spins and falls back down to the ground. The film changes back into the sepia tone.)
(The scene changes to Kansas where Dorothy is lying on her bed while she repeats the magical phrase. Aunt Em placed a cold compress on Dorothy's forehead.)
Aunt Em: Wake up, honey.
Dorothy Gale: (Waking up) There's no place like home. There's no place like home. There's no... (She sees Aunt Em and Uncle Henry standing by her.)
Aunt Em: (Smiling while holding Dorothy's hand) Dorothy, Dorothy, dear. it's Aunt Em, darling.
Dorothy Gale: Oh, Auntie Em, it's you!
Aunt Em: (Removes the compress) Yes. darling.
Professor Marvel: Hello there! Anybody home? (Arrives) I dropped by because I heard the little girl got caught in the big. (Sees Dorothy) Well, she seems all right now.
Uncle Henry: Yeah, she got quite a bump on the head.. We kind of thought there for a minute she was gonna leave us.
Dorothy Gale: But I did leave you, Uncle Henry. That's just the trouble and I tried to get back for days and days!
Auntie Em: (Calming and Comforting Dorothy) There, there, lie quiet now. You just had a bad dream.
Professor Marvel: Sure.
Hunk: (Kneels down and smiling at Dorothy) Remember me you old pal Hunk?
Hickory: And me, Hickory?
Zeke: You couldn't forget my face, could you?
Dorothy Gale: No, but it wasn't a dream. It was a place. And you and you and you. (To Professor Marvel) And you were there. (Professor Marvel, Farm hands chuckling) But you couldn't have been, could you?
Aunt Em: Oh, we dream lots of silly things when we.
Dorothy Gale: No, Aunt Em, this was a real, truly live place. And I remember that some of it wasn't very nice, but most of it was beautiful.
