DOROTHY
My goodness, what a fuss you're making! Well naturally, when you go around picking on things weaker than you are. Why, you're nothing but a great big coward!
COWARDLY LION
[crying] You're right, I am a coward! I haven't any courage at all. I even scare myself.
COWARDLY LION
Look at the circles under my eyes. I haven't slept in weeks!
TIN WOODSMAN
Why don't you try counting sheep?
COWARDLY LION
That doesn't do any good, I'm afraid of 'em.
SCARECROW
Aw, that's too bad.

[singing] I'd be brave as a blizzard...
TIN WOODSMAN
[singing] I'd be gentle as a lizard...
SCARECROW
[singing] I'd be clever as a gizzard...
DOROTHY
[singing] If the Wizard is a wizard who will serve.
SCARECROW
[singing] Then I'm sure to get a brain...
TIN WOODSMAN
[singing] A heart...
DOROTHY
[singing] A home...
COWARDLY LION
[singing] The nerve!

Read what my medal says: "Courage". Ain't it the truth? Ain't it the truth?

COWARDLY LION
[singing] If I were king of the fore-e-e-est / Not queen, not duke, not prince / My regal robes of the fore-e-e-est / Would be satin, not cotton, not chintz / I'd command each thing, whether fish or fowl / With a r-r-ruff and a r-r-ruff, and a royal growl - R-R-Ruff! / As I click my heels / All the trees would kneel / And the mountains bow / And the bulls kowtow / And the sparrow would take wing / If I, if I were ki-i-i-i-ng! / The rabbits would show respect to me / The chipmunks genuflect to me / Though my tail would lash / I would show compash / For every underling / If I, if I were king / Just ki-i-i-i-ing!

COWARDLY LION
I *do* believe in spooks, I *do* believe in spooks. I do, I do, I do, I *do* believe in spooks, I *do* believe in spooks, I do, I do, I do, I *do*!
WITCH OF THE WEST
Ah! You'll believe in more than that before I'm finished with you.

COWARDLY LION
[singing] I'm afraid there's no denyin' / I'm just a dandy-lion / A fate I don't deserve / I'm sure I could show my prowess / Be a lion, not a mouse / If I only had the nerve.

I- I- I hope my strength holds out.
TIN WOODSMAN
[hanging by Lion's tail] I hope your tail holds out!

DOROTHY
Goodbye, Tinman. Oh, don't cry! You'll rust so dreadfully. Here's your oil can.
TIN WOODSMAN
Now I know I've got a heart, 'cause it's breaking...
DOROTHY
Goodbye, Lion. I know it isn't right, but I'm going to miss the way you used to hollar for help before you found your courage.
COWARDLY LION
I never would've found it if it hadn't been for you...
DOROTHY
[to Scarecrow] I think I'm going to miss you most of all.

[noticing the snow that fallen on the poppy field] Unusual weather we're having, ain't it?

TIN WOODSMAN
Here, here. Go away and let us alone.
COWARDLY LION
Oh, scared, huh? Afraid, huh? Ah, how long can you stay fresh in that can? Ha ha ha ha.
