-->The Woozy sat upon his square haunches to examine Hank with care. "Beauty," he said, "must be a matter of taste. I don't say your judgment is bad, friend Hank, or that you are so vulgar as to be conceited. But if you admire big, waggy ears and a tail like a paintbrush and hoofs big enough for an elephant and a long neck and a body so skinny that one can count the ribs with one eye shut —- if that's your idea of beauty, Hank, then either you or I must be much mistaken."

* From ''The Lost Princess of Oz'': The party searching for Ozma finds a town where the people have no nowledge of the outside world, so they don't know they're in Oz. Scraps tries to impress on them the urgency of their quest for Ozma: "Aren't you angry? Aren't you indignant? Your Ruler, who you didn't even know existed, has been kidnapped!"

* The scene in ''The Patchwork Girl of Oz'' where the Woozy explains how the word "krizzle-kroo" makes him angry because he doesn't know what it means, leading to everyone shouting "Krizzle-kroo" at him so he'll get angry enough to flash fire from his eyes and burn through the fence keeping him prisoner, is funny enough in the book -- but the scene takes on a new level of hilarity in the silent movie adaptation. Since the "Krizzle-kroo" part wouldn't work that well without audible dialogue, Scraps proceeds to anger the Woozy by repeatedly poking, punching and kicking him in the most obnoxious way possible. It works.

* From ''Ozma of Oz''
-->When the bell rang a second time the King shouted angrily, "Smudge and blazes!" and at a third ring he screamed in a fury, "Hippikaloric!" which must be a dreadful word because we don't know what it means.

** Earlier in the same book, Dorothy and the Cowardly Lion visit the Easter Bunny, who treats them to a cup of "carrot tea." The Lion hates the tea but doesn't want to say so, so he keeps discreetly pouring it out -- only for the Easter Bunny to notice his cup is empty and fill it up again.

* The almost {{Seinfeldian Conversation}}s between the Cowardly Lion, the Woozy, Toto, Hank the Mule and the Sawhorse in ''The Lost Princess of Oz'' are comedic highlights of the book, especially the one where they start discussing which one of them is the most beautiful. The Woozy and the Lion get in some gems here:
