Going so soon? I wouldn't hear of it. Why, my little party's just beginning!


Well! Ring around the rosy, a pocket full of spears! Thought you'd be pretty foxy, didn't you? Well! The last to go will see the first three go before her! And her mangy little dog, too!

How about a little fire, Scarecrow?

ARRRRRGH! — 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?! ARRRRRGH! I'm gone! I'm gone! I'm going!... [is fully melted]

[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'd be tender — I'd be gentle
And awful sentimental
Regarding Love and Art
I'd be friends with sparrows
And the boy who shoots the arrows
If I only had a heart.

But I could show my prowess,
Be a lion, not a mow-ess,
If I only had the nerve.
I'm afraid there's no denyin'
I'm just a dandy-lion —
A fate I don't deserve.

[saying goodbye to Dorothy] I never would have found my courage if it hadn't been for you.

And she's not only merely dead, She's really, most sincerely dead. - the Coroner

[singing] We represent the Lollypop Guild, the Lollypop Guild, the Lollypop Guild.
And on behalf of the Lollypop Guild, we'd like to welcome you to Munchkinland!

Professor Marvel: [to his horse] Better get under cover, Sylvester, there's a storm blowin' up, a whopper! Just speakin' the vernacular of the peasantry. Poor little kid. I hope she gets home all right.
