Toto, I've a feeling
we're not in Kansas anymore.
- Someplace where there isn't any trouble... [tossing a piece of her cruller 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 train. It's far, far away... behind the moon... beyond the rain.
[singing] 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.
- Toto, I've a feeling we're not in Kansas anymore. We must be over the rainbow!
- Well, I... I think that it... that 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 backyard; because if it isn't there, I never really lost it to begin with.
- There's no place like home; there's no place like home; there's no place like home...
- [last lines] Oh, but anyway, Toto, we're home – home! And this is my room – and you're all here – and I'm not going to leave here ever, ever again, because I love you all! And... oh, Auntie Em, there's no place like home!
My head I'd be scratchin'
While my thoughts
were busy hatchin'
If I only had a brain
- Why, if I had a brain I could...
[singing] I could wile away the hours,
Conferrin' with the flowers,
Consultin' with the rain.
And my head I'd be scratchin'
While my thoughts were busy hatchin'
If I only had a brain.
- [singing] When a man's an empty kettle,
He should be on his mettle,
And yet I'm torn apart.
Just because I'm presumin'
That I could be kinda human
If I only had a heart.
I could show my prowess
Be a lion
, not a "mowess,"
If I only had the nerve.
- [singing] 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 "mowess,"
If I only had the nerve.
Wicked Witch of the WestEdit
I'll get you, my pretty, and your little dog
- [to Glinda] 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 and now 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! [With a burst of laughter, she whirls around and vanishes in a burst of smoke and fire and a clap of thunder.]
- [last words] Ohhh! 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! Ohhh! Look out! Look out! I'm going! Ohhhh – Ohhhhhhhhhh!
- Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain! The Great Oz has spoken!
- [singing] Ding Dong, the witch is dead,
Which old witch?
The wicked witch.
Ding Dong, the wicked witch is dead!
- [singing] 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 one because
Because, because, because, because, because...
Because of the wonderful things he does.

Quotes about The Wizard of OzEdit
- It's a wonderful universal story. I mean you look at the Wizard of Oz — it takes a reality which is the beginning of the movie, and turns it into a mythology. … You know all great story telling is a form of myth.
- I would watch Wizard of Oz, like every day, when I was two. I had a hard time understanding that I couldn't go into the film, because it felt so real to me.
