Cowardly Lion: Put 'em up, put 'em uuuuuup! Which one of you first? I'll fight ya both together if you want. I'll fight ya with one paw tied behind my back! I'll fight ya standin' on one foot! I'll fight ya with my eyes closed! [To the Tin Man] Ooooh, pulling an axe on me, hey? [To the Scarecrow] Sneakin' up on me, hey? Why, gnong-gnong!
Tin Man: Here, here. Go away and let us alone!
Cowardly Lion: Oh, scared, huh? Afraid, huh? How long can you stay fresh in that can? Ha-ha-ha-ha. Come on, get up and fight, ya shivering junkyard. [To the Scarecrow] Put your hands up, ya 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 teachin' him?
Tin Man: W-w-w-ell, I hardly know 'im.
[Toto barks and yips at the Lion]
Cowardly Lion: I'll get you anyway, peewee. [chases after Toto]
[Dorothy scoops Toto into her arms and slaps the Lion]
Dorothy: Shame on you!
Cowardly Lion: [crying] What did you do that for? I didn't bite him.
Dorothy: No, but you tried to. 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 ya? Is my nose bleeding?
Dorothy: Well, of course not. 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 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 'em.
Scarecrow: That's too bad. [to Dorothy] Don't you think the wizard could help him too?
Dorothy: I don't see why not. [to the Lion] Why don't you come with us? We're on our way to see the wizard now...[pointing to the Tin Man] to get him a heart...
Tin Man: [pointing at the Scarecrow] And him a brain.
Dorothy: I'm sure he could give you some courage.
Cowardly Lion: Wouldn't you feel degraded to be seen in the company of a cowardly lion? I would.
Dorothy: Of course not.
Cowardly Lion: Gee, that's awfully nice of you. My life has been simply unbearable.
Dorothy: Well, it's all right now. The wizard will fix everything.
