The Wizard of Oz (1939) Poster

Clara Blandick: Auntie Em



  • Auntie Em : Almira Gulch, just because you own half the county doesn't mean that you have the power to run the rest of us. For 23 years, I've been dying to tell you what I thought of you, and now... well, being a Christian woman, I can't say it!

  • Auntie Em : Help us out today and find yourself a place where you won't get into any trouble!

    Dorothy : A 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...

    [begins to sing "Over the Rainbow"] 

  • Dorothy : You go away or I - I'll bite you myself!

    Auntie Em : Dorothy!

  • Auntie Em : Here, here, what's all this jabber-wapping when there's work to be done? I know three shiftless farmhands that'll be out of a job before they know it.

    'Hickory' : Well, Dorothy was walking along...

    Auntie Em : I saw you tinkering with that contraption, Hickory! Now you and Hunk get back to that wagon.

    'Hickory' : All right, Mrs. Gale. But someday, they're going to erect a statue to me in this town, and...

    Auntie Em : Well, don't start posing for it now!

  • Miss Gulch : If you don't hand over that dog, I'll bring a damage suit that'll take your whole farm! There's a law protecting folks against dogs that bite!

    Auntie Em : How would it be if she keeps him tied up? He's really gentle... with gentle people, that is.

  • Auntie Em : Now you go feed those hogs before they worry themselves into anemia!

  • Dorothy : I'm frightened, Auntie Em! I'm frightened!

    [Auntie Em's image appears in the crystal ball] 

    Auntie Em : Dorothy? Dorothy? Where are you? It's me, Auntie Em! We're trying to find you! Where are you?

    Dorothy : I'm here in Oz, Auntie Em! I'm locked in the witch's castle, and I'm trying to get home to you, Auntie Em!

    [Auntie Em's image fades out] 

    Dorothy : Oh, Auntie Em, don't go away! I'm frightened! Come back! Come back!

    [the Wicked Witch's image appears in the crystal ball] 

    The Wicked Witch of the West : Auntie Em! Auntie Em! Come back! I'll give you Auntie Em, my pretty!

    [cackling, to the audience, cackling again and the Wicked Witch's image fades out]
