The Wizard's Offer
Oz: Come FORWARD!
Oz: 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 --
Oz: The Great and Powerful Oz knows why you have come. Step forward, Tin Man.
Tin Man: Uahh.
Oz: You dare to come to me for a heart, do you? You clinking, clanking, clattering collection of caliginous junk!
Oz: And you, Scarecrow, have the effrontery to ask for a brain! You billowing bale of bovine fodder!!
Oz: Enough! And you, Lion. Well?!!
[The Cowardly Lion faints]
Oz: Silence, Whippersnapper. The beneficent Oz has every intention of granting your requests.
Oz: But first you must prove yourselves worthy by performing a very small task. Bring me the broomstick of the Witch of the West.
The Scarecrow: Bbbbbbbbut...if we do that, we'll have to kill her to get it.
Oz: Bring me her broomstick and I'll grant your requests. Now, go.
The Cowardly Lion: But what if she kills us first?
Oz: I said GO!!!
