Earlier today we gave a special birthday shout out to The Wizard of Oz for turning the big 7-1. We posted some of our favorite moments and tunes from the film including Judy Garland’s rendition of “Somewhere over the Rainbow”, and the famous Kansas cyclone scene. The film has sentimental value for a lot of people, not just because of its splashy Technicolor or its catchy tunes, but because of the message behind it. In honor of The Wizard of Oz, here are some of our favorite and most memorable quotes that came out of Oz…

  • Dorothy, “Toto, I’ve got a feeling we’re not in Kansas anymore. We must be over the rainbow!”
  • The Wicked Witch, “Very well – I’ll bide my time. [to Dorothy] And as for you, my fine lady, it’s true I can’t attend to you here and now as I’d like; but just try to stay out of my way – just try! I’ll get you, my pretty, and your little dog too!”
  • Dorothy, “Lions, and tigers, and bears! Oh, my!”
  • The Wizard, “Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain! The Great Oz has spoken!”
  • The Tin Man, ” Now I know I’ve got a heart… ‘Cause it’s breaking.”
  • Dorothy, “[last lines] Oh, but anyway, Toto, we’re home – home! And this is my room – and you’re all here – and I’m not going to leave here ever, ever again, because I love you all! And… oh, Auntie Em, there’s no place like home!”

And of course the most famous quote of all: “There’s no place like home; there’s no place like home; there’s no place like home”
