The Wizard of Oz Quotes

  • Wizard of Oz: Why, anybody can have a brain. That's a very mediocre commodity. Every pusillanimous creature that crawls on the Earth or slinks through slimy seas has a brain. Back where I come from, we have universities, seats of great learning, where men go to become great thinkers. And when they come out, they think deep thoughts and with no more brains than you have. But they have one thing you haven't got: a diploma.
  • Wizard of Oz: To confer, converse, and otherwise hob-nob with my brother wizards.
  • Auntie Em : Now you go feed those hogs before they worry themselves into anemia!
  • Miss Gulch : [ stopping bicycle and getting off ] Gale?
    Uncle Henry Gale : Well, howdy, Miss Gulch.
    Miss Gulch : [ comes into the Gales' yard ] I want to see you and your wife right away about Dorothy!
    Uncle Henry Gale : Dorothy? Well, what has Dorothy done?
    Miss Gulch : What she's done? I'm all but lame from the bite on my leg!
    Uncle Henry Gale : Oh! You mean she bit you?
    Miss Gulch : No, her dog!
    Uncle Henry Gale : Oh, she bit her dog, eh? [ Uncle Henry tries to shut the gate, but it hits her on the backside ]
    Miss Gulch : [ exasperated ] No!
  • Dorothy Gale: Toto, I've got a feeling we're not in Kansas anymore.

  • Cowardly Lion: Ow!
    Dorothy: [pulling thorns out of his backside] Hold still, Lion. You're such a big baby.
    Tin Woodman: You just have to grin and bear it.
    Cowardly Lion: I'm not a bear, and I don't feel like grinning. Ow!
    Scarecrow: Well, you shouldn't have sat down on these, and why do you think they call them prickly pumpkins?
    Cowardly Lion: I thought maybe they were just disagreeable.
  • Scarecrow: I haven't got a brain... only straw.
    Dorothy: How can you talk if you haven't got a brain?
    Scarecrow: I don't know... But some people without brains do an awful lot of talking... don't they?
    Dorothy: Yes, I guess you're right.
