Why does Dorothy tell the Scarecrow she'll miss him most of all when she leaves?
The Tin Man and the Lion are standing right there and can hear her say it. Isn't tht sort of cruel?
I've always wondered if it can be explained by the fact that it's a dream, and so what she's really doing in choosing which one of the farmhands she most wants to fuck when she wakes up.
he was the one she wanted to bang back in real life Kansas.
Unspeakably rude of her.
The Scarecrow wanted to be known as the original Friend of Dorothy.
He was holding for her. It was code.
I love this thread.
I've always wondered the same thing, OP.
Because she knew him the longest, you stupid queens!
Because when she had to take a dump in the forest, she could reach in and grab some paper to wipe with. Beats those Kansas corn cobs.
What R7 said.
Then again, how MUCH longer did she know the Scarecrow, like 20 mins? Damn, gurl!
Because She Met Him First !!
Because he "didn't have a brain", he was the most open and caring of the three. Both the Tinman and the Lion had baggage that prevented them from really being close to anyone.
She was a horrible person.
Is this another Golden Girls thread?
Such is life
Dorothy was a real cunt.
[quote] Dorothy was a real cunt.
If you think about it, Aunty Em was kinda cunty to Dorothy. And that little dog, too!
She was trying to make him feel better, so it was either tell him something nice or give him a handjob. Either way she'd be grasping at straws.
Because the Scarecrow aka Lee Stetson is as adorable as a puppy, OP!
She was a notorious racist who appreciated the way he kept black birds away.
Soon after she met him, he took her virginity. You never forget your first. . . unless you get rufi'd.
Because she knew years later, some pathetic old queen would take the time to ponder this on a message board. Loser.
I know Blanche was hairy and Sophia could be heartless, but calling them the Lion and Tin Man is a little harsh.
She liked her men brainless.
Who isn't sentimental about their first roll in the hay?
I always thought she was trying to make the others jealous.
[quote]Because she knew years later, some pathetic old queen would take the time to ponder this on a message board. Loser.
And yet, here YOU are, a pathetic old queen yourself, conversing with the same person you denigrate on that same message board.
This kind of question is what makes the homosexual great. And I'm not even kidding.Nor a homosexual. It gives me hope for us all.Honestly!
And what R11 said about baggage is the answer and gets the prize.
R32 is OP.
You're ALL losers - this was a joke on Family Guy, and no one caught that?
Been watching Family Guy, OP?
You admit to watching that show r36?
Yeah R38, because I don't let a television show define who I am. I have degrees to do that sort of thing.
You let degrees define who you are?
R40, what are you on about? Do you want to fucking talk about the Wizard of Oz, college degrees, or your ability to clutch pearls? Just pick a fucking direction, babe.
Well r37, it appears we have touched a sore spot on Mr. Degrees.
Link to Family Guy or it didn't happen.
SHE LOVES STRAW DICKS!
OP= Miss Manners
Originally, Dorothy was supposed to be presented as a little older, and having some kind of budding romance with the farmhand. The line was supposed to reference that. During editing, they decided to kill off that subplot, but the line remained, just as the line about the Jitterbugs remained.
R46: Come to think of it, that "extra" verse in the long version of "If I Only Had a Brain" seems to hint at it, too:
Gosh it would be awful pleasin'
To reason out the reason
For things I can't explain.
Then perhaps I'll deserve ya
And be even worthy 'erv ya
If I only had a brain.
Dorothy knows...years later she will rely on booze and pills to get her thru the day. She will ruin everyone's life, so she figured she wouldn't remember him by lunch time.
Because he was so rickety, she enjoyed getting on his back and riding him to climax.
Because he was outstanding in his field.
Because he had the smallest dick. He once told her: "my dick? it's like finding a needle in a haystack"
According to one of the comments on the youtube click:
[quote]Just bought the Oz DVD and they explain that line a little better. Apparently, in early drafts there was supposed to be a budding romance between Dorothy and Hunk (Scarecrow's counterpart on the farm), but was later scrapped. The line was a holdover from that. Learned a few interesting things.
This is what I heard was the explanation for her saying she'd miss the Scarecrow most of all. Originally it was planned that Dorothy and the farmhand played by Ray Bolger would have a ROMANCE and that spilled over into her feelings for the Scarecrow. I'm not kidding. That's what I read in some book about the Wizard of Oz. Of course that was scrapped, but the line about her missing him most of all stayed in the movie. It seems incredible, but then Hollywood has come up with a lot of really stupid ideas.
In the early makeup tests Dorothy Gale looks like a whore, with huge, long blonde hair and very heavy makeup that made Judy Garland look even older than 17. Maybe it was felt that this seductive looking Dorothy would be ripe for romance...with a farmhand/scarecrow. Thank goodness the makeup and hair was altered and there was no romantic interest. But that line about her missing him the most still sounds strange.
I saw the new musical Wizard of Oz at the Pantages in LA a couple of weeks ago. I usually hate musicals, but it was good. The best part was that they rectified Dorothy's favoritism in that last scene in Oz. That alone was worth the price of admission.
Because she was a fucking cunt
The Tin Man and the Cowardly Lion are CLEARLY gay. The Scarecrow at least goes both ways. I get it.
You should see what she did with that wiener after the cameras stopped.
LOL, I've always wondered this.
He was hung like a baby's arm.
Seems like a strawman argument.
Bitch was too busy sniffing poppies to know what the hell she was talking about.
Don't worry, we're going to remember that statement and kick her ass when she comes back in the sequels.
You idiots. Tin man's penis was rusty, and she wasn't into bestiality, so she was fucking the scarecrow even if he did have a pencil dick.
Because OP - didn't you notice? - Dorothy fist fucked him when she had to stuff him back together, thereby developing a special affection for him.
She didn't mean to be rude.
Because she met the Scarecrow first. The lion was obviously a sissy AIDS boy and you could just tell the Tin Man was a tootsie fruit.
So that left the Scarecrow as the only one not engaging in the homosex.
Because Kansas is so corny in August most pubescent girls there are helplessly turned on by the omnipresent depiction of the adult male figure.
