Judy Garland
Judy Garland (Dorothy)
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.
[singing] Somewhere, over the rainbow, bluebirds fly. Birds fly over the rainbow, Why then? oh, why can't I?

Ray Bolger
Ray Bolger ('Hunk'/The Scarecrow)
Why, if I had a brain, I could ? [begins singing]I could while away the hours,Conferrin' with the flowers,Consultin' with the rain.And my head I'd be scratchin'While my thoughts were busy hatchin'If I only had a brain.

Jack Haley
Jack Haley ('Hickory'/The Tin Man)
[singing] I'd be tender ? I'd be gentleAnd awful sentimentalRegarding Love and ArtI'd be friends with sparrowsAnd the boy who shoots the arrowsIf I only had a heart.

Bert Lahr
Bert Lahr ('Zeke'/The Cowardly Lion)
[singing] Yeah, it's sad, believe me, missy,When you're born to be a sissy,Without the vim and verve,But I could show my prowess,Be a lion, not a mow-ess,If I only had the nerve.I'm afraid there's no denyin'I'm just a dandy-lion 'A fate I don't deserve.

Carl Stephan
Carl Stephan (Munchkin)
[singing] Ding Dong! The Witch is dead.Which old Witch? The Wicked Witch!Ding Dong! The Wicked Witch is dead.
[singing] You're off to see the WizardThe Wonderful Wizard of OzYou'll find he is a whiz of a Wiz If ever a Wiz there was.If ever, oh ever, a Wiz there wasThe Wizard of Oz Is one becauseBecause, because, because, because, because...Because of the wonderful things he does...

Dialogues from "The Wizard of Oz"

Dorothy (Judy Garland)
→ Oh will you help me? Can you help me?

Glinda (Billie Burke)
→ You don't need to be helped any longer. You've always had the power to go back to Kansas.

→ I have?

'Hunk'/The Scarecrow (Ray Bolger)
→ Then why didn't you tell her before?

→ Because she wouldn't have believed me. She had to learn it for herself.

'Hickory'/The Tin Man (Jack Haley)
→ What have you learned, Dorothy?

→ Well, I - I think that it - it wasn't enough to just want to see Uncle Henry and Auntie Em - and it's that - if I ever go looking for my heart's desire again, I won't look any further than my own back yard. Because if it isn't there, I never really lost it to begin with!
