    Say! Get in there before I make a dime bank

    out of you! Listen, kid, are you going to

    let that old Gulch heifer try and buffalo

    you?

    Well, don't start posing for it now. Here,

    Good people of Oz, this is positively the

    You stay out of this! I'm here for

    vengeance! So it was you, was it? You killed

    her,....

    June 11, 2010

  • WIZARD

    Well, you can't. As for you, my fine

    friend -- you're a victim of disorganized

    thinking. You are under the unfortunate

    delusion that simply because you run away

    from danger, you have no courage. You're

    confusing courage with wisdom. Back where

    I come from, we have men who are called

    heroes. Once a year, they take their

    fortitude out of mothballs and parade it

    down the main street of the city. And they

    have no more courage than you have. But!

    They have one thing that you haven't got!

    A medal! Therefore -- for meritorious....

    conduct, extraordinary valor, conspicuous

    bravery against wicked witches, I award you

    the Triple Cross.

    Here, here, what's all this jabber-wapping

    Yeh, it's sad, believe me, Missy

    Well, I'm a little muddled. The Munchkins

    called me because a new witch has just

    As for you, my galvanized friend, you want

    a heart! You don't know how lucky you are

    not to have one. Hearts will never be

    practical until they can be made

    unbreakable. I could have been a world

    wizard, had I not been obstructed by a heart.

    That's right. Here -- sit right down here.

    That's it. Ha ha! This -- this is the same

    genuine, magic, authentic crystal used by

    the Priests of Isis and Osiris in the days

    of the Pharaohs of Egypt -- in which

    Cleopatra first saw the approach of Julius

    Caesar and Marc Anthony, and -- and so on

    -- and so on. Now, you -- you'd better

    close your eyes, my child, for a moment --

    in order to be better in tune with the

    without....
