Lion: (after vowing to save Dorothy?) There's just one thing I want you to do!
Tinman and Scarecrow: What's that?
Lion: Talk me out of it!
Lion reading the sign at the entrance to the Witch's Forest: "I'd toin back if I were you." He nods and does an about-face, with Tin Man and Scarecrow promptly grabbing him and lifting him into the air. Lion even kicks his feet in the air in protest!
This also counts as Mood Whiplash; after a frightening scene where the quartet meet the Wizard of Oz, the Cowardly Lion runs back down the hallway and dives into a window.
"I hope my strength holds out." "I hope your tail holds out!"
I AM THE GREAT AND POWERFUL ... (meekly) Wizard of Oz.
The Wizard turning out to be every bit the con artist that Professor Marvel is. He couldn't even stop the balloon because he didn't know how it worked. (Sounds like Dorothy dodged a bullet by disembarking early).
A winged monkey attack and Dorothy in potential danger won't stop the Tin Man and the Cowardly Lion from cracking a couple of jokes at the Scarecrow's expense.
Tin Man: What happened to you?
Scarecrow: Well they tore my legs off and they threw them over there, and then they took my chest out and they threw it over there.
Tin Man: Well, that's you all over.
Cowardly Lion: They sure knocked the stuffings out of you, didn't they?
