The Wizard: Come forward!
Cowardly Lion: Tell me when it's over... I wanna go home!
The Wizard: I am Oz, the Great and Powerful! Who are you? WHO - ARE - YOU?!
Dorothy: If you please — I am Dorothy... the small and meek. We've come to ask...
The Wizard: SILENCE!
Dorothy: [cries out and runs back to the others] Oh! Jiminy Crickets!
The Wizard: The Great and Powerful Oz knows why you have come. Step forward, Tin Man! [He obeys.] You dare to come to me for a heart, do you, you clinking, clanking, clattering collection of colligenous junk?!
Tin Man: Uh, yes-yes sir. Y-y-yes, Your Honor. Y'see, uh, a while back, we were walking down the Yellow Brick Road, and -
The Wizard: QUIET!
Tin Man: Whoa! [retreats]
The Wizard: And you, Scarecrow, have the effrontery to ask for a brain, you billowing bale of bovine fodder?!
Scarecrow: [He bows and approaches on his knees] Yes, Your Honor-- I mean Your Excellency-- I mean Your Wizardry!
The Wizard: Enough! [Scarecrow retreats] And you, Lion... [Lion steps forward but is too frightened to speak] WELL?! [Lion faints, and the others rush to his side. Scarecrow fans him with his hand in an attempt to revive him.]
Dorothy: You should be ashamed of yourself! Frightening him like that, when he came to you for help!
The Wizard: Silence, whippersnapper! The Beneficent Oz has every intention of granting your requests. [Lion instantly regains consciousness and sits up.]
Cowardly Lion: What's that? Huh? What did he say?
The Wizard: 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: But, but, but, if we do that, we'll have to kill her to get it.
The Wizard: Bring me her broomstick and I'll grant your requests. Now go.
Cowardly Lion: W-w-what if she kills us first?
The Wizard: I SAID GO!!!
