    Why have you come back?

  • Dorothy Gale

    Please, sir. We've done what you told us.

    We've brought you the broomstick of the Wicked Witch of the West.

    We melted her.

  • Unknown

    You liquidated her, eh?

    Very resourceful!

  • Dorothy Gale

    Yes, sir. So we'd like you to keep your promise to us, if you please, sir.

    Not so fast! Not so fast!

    I'll have to give the matter a little thought!

    Go away, and come back tomorrow!


    But I want to go home now!

    You've had plenty of time already!


    Do not arouse the wrath of the great and powerful Oz!

    I said, "Come back tomorrow!"

    If you were really great and powerful, you'd keep your promises!

    If you were really great and powerful, you'd keep your promises!

    Do you presume to criticize the great Oz?

    You ungrateful creatures!

    Think yourselves lucky that I'm giving you audience tomorrow instead of20 years from now!

    The great Oz has spoken!

    Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.

    The great Oz has spoken!

    Who are you?

    I am the great and powerful Wizard of Oz.

    You are?

    I don't believe you!

    No, I'm afraid it's true. There's no other wizard except me.

    You humbug!


    Yes, that's exactly so. I'm a humbug.

    You're a very bad man!

    No, my dear. I'm a very good man.

    I'm just a very bad wizard.

    What about the heart that you promised Tin Man?
