I'll get you, my pretty, and your little dog too! Note: ranked #99 in the American Film Institute's list of the top 100 movie quotations in American cinema.


It's always best to start at the beginning – and all you do is follow the Yellow Brick Road.

If you can't find what you're looking for in your own backyard, maybe you never really lost it at all.

[to the Wicked Witch of the West] Begone, before somebody drops a house on you!

This is the Wicked Witch of the West. She's far worse than the other one.

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.

So, you won't take warning, eh? All the worse for you. I'll take care of you now instead of later. When I gain those ruby slippers, my power will be the greatest in Oz. Now my beauties. Something with poi-son in it I think. With poison in it. But attractive to the eye and soothing to the smell. Ha-ha-ha-ha. Poppies. Poppies. Poppies will put them to sleep. Sle-ee-p. Now they'll sle-ee-p.

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]

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

[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.

[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!

Let the joyous news be spread: The Wicked Old Witch at last is dead.

How about a little fire, Scarecrow?

Toto, I've a feeling we're not in Kansas anymore... Some place where there isn't any trouble. 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 —
[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.

Follow the Yellow Brick Road... follow the Yellow Brick Road?
