Thank you both for coming.

Emerald City needs all the heart

and courage it can get right now.

Got your back, straw man.

You can count on us.

Oh? You can count now, can you?

Oh, boy. Sounds like somebody

needs an oil change.

What'd you do?

Forget to prime your pump?

Oh, very brave. I think that

crown has gone to your head.

- Can it, rust bucket!

- Oh, how dare you!

I'll show you how! Come on,

funnel-head! Let's go!

Clank, clank, clank!

Anybody in here?

Oh, yeah. That just happened.

Break it up, you two knuckleheads.

We're in a grave situation here!

- Ah, sorry.

- Yeah.

- I-I guess we're all a little on edge, huh?

- Copy that.

But with all of Oz at risk,

I need you two to stand guard...

while I try to contact Dorothy.

Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa!

"Contact Dorothy"? How?

I'm a genius, remember?

But she's probably forgotten

all about us by now.

Whoa, yeah. It's been a long time.

For us my friends, yes. But time in Oz

passes differently than in her world.

It's been years since she

destroyed the Wicked Witches,

but to her it's going to

seem like only yesterday.

Well, let's hope she got

a good night's sleep.

Now, you two keep an eye

on that broomstick while I...

- Oh, too late!

- Secure the chamber!

We've got to

get through to Dorothy.

Dorothy. Scarecrow to Dorothy.

Come in, Dorothy. Come in, Dorothy.



We're home.

Em, over here. Look at this.

That twister took out

everything in its path.

Knocked the house

right off its foundation.

- Do you think we can fix it?

- I don't know.

That's an awful lot of damage.

Uncle Henry!

Auntie Em?


- Oh.

- Dorothy.

It's not fair!

Oh, I know, sweetie.

It's not fair. But

it's just a house.

If we have to find another

one, we'll find another one.

- No. We can't just leave.

- Dorothy,

we gotta face facts.

Look at the barn.

Look at the house.

We'll have to have it all appraised,

but we shouldn't get our hopes up.

Move back. Move back.

We need to create a halo of

safety around this disaster area.

Thank you.

Excuse me. This is our home.

Your home.

A home is where you live.

This is a disaster area.

Oh. Can this not be adjusted?

Then do it. Thanks so much.

- And who are you?

- I'm the Appraiser.

Are you with the government?

I didn't see a badge.

Don't be rude, Dorothy.

Oh, outspoken.

We're... government adjacent.

Hmm. Broken support beams,

cracked concr...

Are you writing this down?

Thank you.

Cracked concrete footing.

- Ah!

- Hey!

- What do you think you're doing?

- That thing was about to fall.

I probably just saved your life.

But I don't need any recognition.

Just doing my job.

Now, I've made

a thorough assessment,

and I'm afraid you'll

have to vacate immediately.

- What?

- Read this.

There's no reason to kick

us out. We can fix it.

- Dorothy, hold on.

- I'll fix it myself if I have to.

So sorry, but according

to the state of Kansas,

the fate of this property

is decided by me,

not some little girl.

Flea-bitten, dirty,

possibly rabid...

You, do something useful.

You've got until...

sunset to vacate the premises.

Meet me at the shelter in town to sign the

paperwork, or we'll be back to throw you out!

- Oh, oh...

- Good seeing ya.

Well, that's that.

- Better start packing.

- What? No!

You heard what the man said.

If he says the house is unsafe,

I won't have you in it.

Who is he to decide that?

It's totally... it's-it's fixable.

These are

grown-up decisions, Dorothy.

Sorry, but you're gonna

have to leave this to us.

Well, I'm not leaving.

This is our home.
