Lost in Oz (2015–…): Season 1, Episode 4 - Dorothy Meets the Scarecrow - full transcript

Dorothy enters Glinda's castle only to find out that the good witch is missing. Dorothy sets out to unravel the mystery with the only other inhabitant of the deserted castle, the Scarecrow, whose shoddy memory proves to be less than useful.

Previously on Lost In Oz...

Enjoy Emerald City, Miss Gale.

You're not going anywhere.

There are over a hundred different
known magical elements in Oz.

And I need one of each to get home.

That's Glinda the Good.

If anyone can get you home, she can.

Glinda flies her castle around the city?

And it's filled with magic?

She's completely fallen off the map.

If we can start the Ferris
wheel, we find Glinda.

Only magically trained personnel

should operate machinery.

This is it, Toto.

All the magic we need

is inside that castle.


Toto, we made it.

We're going home.



Hi, there.

It's me... Scarecrow.


Wonderful to see you again.



Uh, I'm terrible with names

and faces and significant dates.



I'm all over the place.

Here. Let me get that for you.

It's okay. If you could
just point me to Glinda...

What's your name? How's your day going?

Did you grow up around here?

Oh, it's so nice to make eye contact.

Oh. Am I coming on too strong?

I'm Scarecrow. What's your name?

I'm Dorothy,

- and this is Toto.
- Huh?

We're looking for Glinda the Good.


"Glinda hears cases from far and wide

in her illustrious Consultation Parlor."

I can take you there.

It says here it has really nice carpets.

Do you like carpets?

Oh, man. When Dorothy and Toto flew in

at the very last second, boh!

Yeah. That was incredible.

And, West, the way you
used that feathosphorus...

Is there a word for scary in a good way?

So, uh, what do we do now?

I guess, uh, don't we have school?

Oh, yeah. School.

Normal life.

I'm going
to miss you, Dorothy.

And this is the Diplomatic
Reception Room,

where a thousand fresh
lilies are delivered daily

to greet disiting vignitaries...

uh, visiting dignitaries.


This has been super-informative,

but I'd really like to see Glinda now.

How long have you
been standing behind me?

Pretty much since you stopped walking.

Well, pleased to meet you.

I'm Scarecrow.

I know. We must met.

- We did?
- Mm-hmm.

Oh, listen, I should tell you,

I have a, um, uh, uh...

Memory problem?

Yes, yes. But I manage.

Now, what was I doing?

Oh, yes.

But before we leave,

I should tell you I have a, uh...

A memory problem.

Yes, but I manage.

Where are we going?

I'm looking for Glinda.

You're looking for Glinda?

Why didn't you say so?

She's just around the corner.

She's coming.



What are you doing here?

Get out.

I'm so sorry. I didn't mean to trespass.

I just...



Y-You're a ghost.

Am I a ghost?

What just happened?

Am I seeing things?

Or do witches just do that?

There's something weird going on here.

Don't you want to finish the tour?

There's the ballroom,
the control room...

Ooh, there's a gift shop.

Oh, she's coming.

What are you doing here? Get out.

Scarecrow, does Glinda
say the same thing

every time you see her?

Oh, gosh, yes, like a broken record.

She's kind of a bore socially.

She's not a ghost.

That's a recording on a loop.

How could I have trusted that traitor?


You can take me,

but the people of Emerald City

will never follow you.


Glinda was taken?

Who is powerful enough
to take Glinda the Good?

Do you have any idea how
long you've been here?

I don't know. Ballpark, 20 minutes.

Uh, who would want to betray Glinda?

Nobody I know.

Do you know anything useful?

Yes. Everything I know
is from these pamphlets.

I can tell you if...

If only there were security logs

or even a guest book,

something that could tell us

who was visiting Glinda that day.

Oh. I know. It's from
Glinda's Gift Shop,

and it's on sale.

Baby's Very Own

Great Book of Records.

"Just like Glinda's.

Does not actually record daily events."

So that means there's a book of records

that does record daily events.

- Where is it?
- Hmm.

Of course. The Great Book of Records.

Silly me. This is just a child's toy.


"The Great Book of Records

"is kept in Glinda's private study

in the secret wing of the castle."

I think I might know where that is.


I don't think that's a...

... a door.


Yes. I've been here before.
I'm sure of it.

It's jogging all kinds of memories...

my middle name, the times tables,

my middle name.

Wait. I think that's...

... oblivion water.

Hello, there. I'm Scarecrow.

I know. We've met. I'm Dorothy,

and you have a memory problem.

And now I think I know how you got it.

Oh. Are you a child doctor?

No, but I hope to be one day.
Come on. I'll catch you up.

What are you doing?

I dropped my textbook,
and I was going to pick it up,

but then I thought, Why?

Yeah. I can't think of
any good reasons, either.

Ow. Oops.

It's me.

I have terrible news.

Toto and Dorothy have not ushered in

the Golden Age of Magic yet.


But here's the good news.

I'm positive that they
haven't left for Kansas,

and if you come with me, I can prove it.

Oh. Thank goodness.

Next time, lead with the good news.

That's got to be it:

Glinda's private study.

What happened here?

Ooh. Careful.


That's the Great Book of Records.

Well, one of them, at least.

There's countless volumes containing

all the knowledge and history of Oz.

So this will tell us where Glinda went

and what she was running from?

It looks like there's a page torn out.

What about the page before it?

The print's too small.

How can anyone read this?

- There's got to be a...
- Ooh.

... magnifying glass.

This won't work. The glass is missing.


Are you sure it's not
around here somewhere?

Wait a second.

Let me see the top
button of your jacket.

Hmm. Where did this come from?

It fits.

This is incredible.

We're inside a chapter
of the Book of Records.

Scarecrow, old friend,

before you say anything,

I know what you're thinking.

Are you talking to... me?

I'm speaking to you not
as your friend, madam,

but as your chief advisor.

If we wait any longer,

the magic shortage will
turn into a crisis.

I'm close. Sustainable
magic is possible.

I just need more time.

Time and magic are both
limited resources.

There's unrest brewing.

There was a sit-in in
Winkietown last week,

and the frond people
are on hunger strike.

Time is limited, yes,

but I'm confident

our friends will lend a helping hand

when I show them what
I've been working on.

You were Glinda's chief advisor?

Oh, no. That... That can't be right.

I'm just a nobody.


Well, I don't know half the words

that came out of my mouth,

and I'm not so dignified like that.

What happened to me?

I much prefer my jacket now, though.

What about the next page?

It's gone.

Whatever happened to Glinda

must be on that torn-out page,

and this next one is a total mess.

The pen kept writing over and over

on the same page.

Think we can get something out of it?

Worth a shot.

Who were you running from?

Whose flag is that?

Uh, no!

You're the one that ripped out the page.

You sacrificed your
memory to protect it.

I did!

You remembered.

Whoever was chasing you

didn't want anyone to discover

what was on this page.

Scarecrow! The page fits perfect...

Oh, no.

Quick, hide this.

What's happening?

The Book of Records.
We tripped an alarm.

We need to leave.

Hurry! The boat!

I don't think the library is sinking.

I think we're rising.

We need to get to the Grand Hall.

If there's any way to go faster,

now would be the time to do it!

Get down!

- Lower!
- Aah!



Monkey, I command you

to fly us out of the castle.

We're free! Whoo-hoo!

Portal technology. We're trapped!

Uh, don't forget about
the flooding water.

Scarecrow, didn't you say
there was a control room?

I did.

Well, if this castle can fly,

then maybe we can land it.

Uh, where's the steering wheel?

We don't have much time.

How about this thingamajig?

- Whoa!
- Ooh!

I wish West was here.

This looks like a whole lot of nothing.

Okay, what exactly are
we looking at here?

Is my mind supposed to be blown yet?

Dorothy flew into Oz.

There were huge energy readings.

When, you know, Glinda's
castle disappeared, nothing.

Nothing means she hasn't left.

Are you on catnip?

Whoa! Oof!



We're all gonna die!

Give me the hat. I need to call my wife.

You can talk?

Zip, tell my wife I love her.

I should have worked less
and been a better father.

And, Zip, if she needs
someone to groom her,

I want it to be you.

Wait, wait, wait. Monkey,

you can communicate with the
other monkeys with that hat?

How else would we all get orders?

Also, the name's Fling.

Fling, we can call West.

She has to know something
about these magic controls.

Can you tell your friends
to send a message?

Zip, this human wants to
talk to somebody named West.

Honey, a friend is here to see you.




West, it's me Dorothy. I need your help.

No! You're a monkey!

Monkey, get out of here.

Help Ojo grab that broom.

It's working. Okay,

tell her it's really me.
Sorry to jack up your...

... day again, but I'm
stuck in Glinda's castle,

and it's taken off somewhere.

- Shoo!
- Huh? Whoa!

I touched some magic knobby
things, and it's out of control.

How do I land this thing?

Stop, Ojo. It's her.

Dorothy, are you okay?

I'm going to need
something more specific

than "knobby things."

Give the monkey a pen and paper.

Now tell him what you see.

I see my life flashing before my eyes.

Describe the control panel, please.

Okay, I'm looking at four orbs

in the shape of a diamond.




- He's still shading.
- Whoa!

Forget the shading.

Look. It's "Gm." Great.

Look up General Magic's
product database.

... doing a search for the
castle autopilot specs.

Do you see a cruise controleum crystal?

Any other adjectives
you can throw at me?

It's white. Take it out.

Don't take it out!

- Ohh!
- Yow!

You need to engage the
manual drive system first.

Sorry. Okay.

The drive system is composed
of two sets of dual...

... suspended orbs,
with an energy channel

running between both. One is up-down,

the other is left-right forward-back.

Don't touch the orbs.

You want to manipulate the magic channel

flowing between them.

Manipulate the magic channel?

But I'm not a witch.

Just put your hands between the orbs

and move then in the direction you want.

Aah! No. No. It's burny and zappy.

It's too powerful.

Clear your mind. You have to focus.

I think I got it.

Now, West, you guys are gonna need

to guide me from the ground.

Can you see me?

They're passing over us right now!


We're coming, Dorothy!

Can you carry all of us?

Are you crazy?

We're taking something with air bags.

Mom! I need to borrow the van for a sec.

I'll be really careful, I promise.
"What?" means okay!


Let's ride.


Okay. We see you. Go to your 9:00.

We're going to land you and
Betsy Bob in Central Park.

And hope there are no joggers out.


This is really hard.

You can do this, Dorothy.

You just need to clear a few more blocks

to reach the park.

We're driving there as fast as we can.

Ooh ooh ooh ooh!


Hey, guys.

- Yeah!
- Yeah!

- Whoa!
- Whoa!



That was insane!

The unstoppable power of
the Toto-Dorothy duo!

I'm sorry you didn't make it to Kansas,

but I just lied.

I'm really glad you
didn't make it to Kansas.

We missed you.

So what happened up there?

Where's Glinda?

And, uh, who is this guy?

This guy is me.

That's Scarecrow.

The castle was empty, except for him.

- Oh, my gosh. Oh, my gosh.
- Huh?

- Chief Advisor Scarecrow?
- Uh-huh.

Is this for real?

You guys should really follow politics.

It's your civic duty.

What about Glinda?

She's missing.

All this time, I was looking
for Glinda to help me,

but I think we need to help her.
