The other "inside" joke was that Jim and Jennifer were an item--hence the ending.
The cast (at least the people I know) was as follows:
DORTHY: Jennifer Quinn
SCARECROW: Denise Miller
TIN MAN: Keri Sheaffer
COWARDLY LION: LuAnn McCaslin
WIZARD: Jim Yovino
LOST IN OZ
(DOROTHY, SCARECROW, TIN MAN, & LION walk in. They are clearly lost. SCARECROW is carrying a map and studying it. The rest are arguing for a brief moment. They all stop as DOROTHY begins.)
DOROTHY(Annoyed) Hey, hey, hey…HEY! Everybody just pipe down for a minute and let me think! Now, Glenda said to follow the yellow-brick road, right?
TIN MANYeah, but she didn’t tell you it split off three different ways once you hit Winkie Country.
LIONWell, you’re the one who told us to come this way.
TIN MANSorry! It wasn’t a freakin’ expressway the last time I went through.
LIONDid ya forget you were stuck rusting in a field for an eternity and that maybe, just maybe, things might have changed?
TIN MANI’m sorry! I didn’t see you offering any suggestions.
LIONHow’d I get dragged into this thing anyway? I was perfectly happy in my forest…
DOROTHYBeing a big ol’ sissy.
LIONI was perfectly happy in my forest livin’ my life until you came along…
DOROTHYNo one forced you to come with us.
TIN MANYeah. You chose to come with us, and you’ve spent the whole time complaining. You lions are all the same.
LIONWhat do you mean you lions? I oughta kick you in the cans right now you walking junkyard!
TIN MANBring it on ya fleabag!
LIONOh! Now I have fleas because I’m a lion, huh?
DOROTHYStop it! Now! I’m tired of this! We need to just focus for a minute and think. (Sighs) This is what we get for listening to a witch.
LION(Under his breath) We’re listening to one right now…
DOROTHY(Glares at LION) I’m gonna pretend I didn’t hear that…
SCARECROW(Looks up from map) I think if we go that way…
LIONOh, what do you know straw-for-brains?! Gimme that thing. You’ve stared it long enough.
(LION grabs map. TIN MAN grabs other side of it as he begins to speak)
TIN MANHey! You don’t know any better than he does!
LIONWell, you have no idea how to use it!
TIN MANThat’s not what your mother said!
(They pull the map back and forth until it rips)
DOROTHYNow you’ve done it. Great job guys! What now?
SCARECROW(Chuckles to self) We are definitely not in
(TIN MAN and LION roll their eyes and groan.)
LION(Looks around) Can someone get this schmuck some brains, please?
DOROTHYThis is ridiculous. I’m calling Glenda.
(She pulls out cell phone. A phone rings in the distance, maybe on another floor, a loud, obnoxious song, maybe a rap song)
DOROTHYGlenda? Hey. It’s Dorothy. We seem to be a in a bit of a pickle here.
GLENDAOh? Well, did you follow the yellow brick road?
DOROTHYYeah, yeah we did.
GLENDAOk, then. What seems to be the problem?
DOROTHYWell, we ran into a bit of trouble around Winkie Country.
GLENDAWinkie Country? Oh my. You really are lost…(Giggles)
SCARECROWShe’s right there (Points to GLENDA).
LION(Turns to see her) Hey! Pollyanna! Get your smiling face over here and point us in the right direction.
(GLENDA comes to where they are.)
GLENDAYou just follow the yellow brick road…
(She goes to leave. TIN MAN and LION block her way. She snaps.)
You best be gettin’ out mah way! I’m fi'in’a get my herr did! Y’all are on your owns! I told you to follow the yellow brick road! I didn’t say nothin’ ‘bout no Winkie Country! I can’t help it if you can’t follow directions!
(As he exits she mumbles to herself, complaining)
TIN MANWho knew the north was so ghetto?
DOROTHYWhat now? All I want to do is get home…(She starts to cry)
SCARECROWDon’t cry pretty lady…(He begins to pet her hair)
(Suddenly, there’s a loud noise. The WICKED WITCH appears on another floor cackling loudly. She descends down, laughing the whole time. Making a scene.)
LION(As she’s coming) What fresh hell is this?
WICKED WITCHSo you’re lost, huh? HAHAHAHA! I told you I’d get you my pretty! And your little dog too! HAHAHAHAHA!!! (Takes a deep breath) HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!
DOROTHY(Takes stuffed dog out. Hands it to her) Here. Take him.
WICKED WITCH(Surprised) Oh. Really? Just like that? That was easy I guess. Well, You’ll never make it to the
(WIZARD appears at top of stairs. He is wearing sunglasses. He looks and talks like a mobster, a total goomba. He makes his way down as he talks)
WIZARDHey! Who’s a’talkin’ about me? What’s a’goin’ on here? What’s all dis commotion?
DOROTHYFINALLY!! Look, all we want is a heart for him (points), some courage for him (points), some brains for him (points), and I just wanna go back to
WIZARDWell. I’m glad you came to see me. It just so happens that I’m the man that can make things happen.
(Approaches TIN MAN). Why do you want a heart my friend?
TIN MANSo I can love. So I can feel emotion.
WIZARD(Punches TIN MAN.) Did ya feel dat?
(TIN MAN nods, says ‘Ow’, something like that)
Then bada-bing! There ya go!
(Goes to LION)
What’s new pussycat? What can I do for you?
LIONI came looking for some courage.
WIZARD(Pulls a flask or bottle out of his jacket. Hands it to LION.)
Bada-bing! Liquid courage!
(Goes to WICKED WITCH. He’s startled by her appearance.)
Whoa! What’s goin’ on here?
DOROTHYShe’s not with us…I think the Scarecrow is next.
(SCARECROW is busy playing with his hands, maybe the ‘here is the church, here is the steeple’ game. He’s amusing himself.)
WIZARDWhoa! I think I can tell what this guy needs. (He taps SCARECROW). Hey. Do you know what this is? (He pulls a small can out his pocket.)
WIZARDBada-bing! Smarter that most people!
(To DOROTHY.) Now. What about you?
DOROTHYI just wanna get the heck outta here!
WIZARDWhere ya from again?
You’re kinda cute you know that?
(She smiles and giggles. They hold hands and start to walk up the stairs or just walk away).
WICKED WITCHYou’ve got to be kidding me! I’ve been trying to get on at the
(DOROTHY pulls a squirt gun or water bottle out of her basket and sprays WICKED WITCH with water. WICKED WITCH does her ‘I’m melting’ routine. All of the others cheer.)
They won "Best in Show"
