Witch of the North. You are welcome, noble Sorceress, to the land of the Munchkins. We are grateful to you for killing the Wicked Witch of the East.
Dorothy. You are very kind, but there must be some mistake. I have not killed anything.
Witch of the North. Your house did, anyway. See!
Dorothy. Oh, dear! Oh, dear! What shall we do? Who was she?
Witch of the North. She was the Wicked Witch of the East.
Witch of the North. She held the Munchkins in bondage for many years.
Dorothy. Are you a Munchkin?
Witch of the North. No, but I am their friend.
Witch of the North. I am a good witch, and the people love me.
Dorothy. But Aunt Em told me that the witches were all dead - years and years ago.
Witch of the North. Who is Aunt Em?
Dorothy. She is my aunt who lives in Kansas.
Witch of the North. I do not know where Kansas is.
Witch of the North. The Land of Oz has never been civilized. So we still have witches and wizards.
Dorothy. Who are the wizards?
Witch of the North. Oz himself is the Great Wizard.
Munchkins. That country, where the Winkies live, is ruled by the Wicked Witch of the West who would make you her slave if you passed her way.
Witch of the North. I'm afraid, my dear, you’ll have to live with us.
Witch of the North. Or you must go to the City of Emeralds. Perhaps Oz will help you.
Dorothy. How can I get there?
WN. You must walk. It is a long journey, sometimes pleasant and sometimes dark and terrible.
