IIRC, the tornado was deliberately caused by the Q Continuum in order to wipe out Amanda's parents since the other Q considered them rogues. As they have weather control in the 24th century, it was thought (by the humans) to be a freak storm. And I believe they didn't merely appear to be human, they actually chose to become mortal.

Sheesh, do you think I don't know that? I'm very possibly the biggest Royals fan you'll ever meet.

It was just another listed instance of how pervasive Wizard of Oz references are in our culture. The fact that some Blue Jays fan(s) either didn't know or didn't care that the Royals don't actually play their home games in the state of Kansas doesn't negate that.

In a later episode of Castle, the Nathan Fillon character was injured and had an extended dream sequence, starring the rest of the cast. Upon awakening, he saw his friends and loved ones gathered around his bed.

He started telling them about his dream, “and you were there, and you were there, and you were ther...”

It doesn’t come across in print, but the delivery was pure Dorothy. A subtle, but quite evident, reference.

A "friend of Dorothy" is a euphemism for a gay man.

And "Oz" is Australia.

That ended up going full circle. The original Munchkin game had a fantasy dungeon-crawling them. When it became a big success, new games followed in other genres: superheroes, science fiction, horror, spy thriller, western, etc. Then they began making games with various IP's: Marvel, H.P. Lovecraft, Conan, Adventure Time, Rick and Morty. And, of course, the Wizard of Oz.

You'd think people who actually live in Kansas would be sick to death of "Oz" references, right? Well that didn't stop the state tourism bureau from coming up with this gem a number of years ago. "Kansas: The Land Of Ahhs"

Not only is Dorothy’s dress better, but the Dorothy inside it is MUCH better. Hubba hubba.

There is a Law & Order episode titled "Surrender Dorothy" and another episode where homeless finds a dead little girl and cries "Wake Up Dorothy"

The SDMB has a poster with the alias "SurrenderDorothy"

You guys know that there's a huge list in IMDb, right?

One reference that's missing is from Ally McBeal. They played the Miss Gulch music whenever Ling appeared.

Yeah, but I'm not a member over there.

My contribution is The Far Side had a comic where a lobster is saying "Auntie Em, Auntie Em!...There's no place like home!...There's no place like home", while the chef is transferring the tasty poor crustacean to a pot of boiling water.

I can't think of TWOO without thinking of that panel.

In the episode of Big Bang Theory where Kripke doses Sheldon with helium just before his NPR radio appearance, Raj does the "We represent the Lollipop Guild" bit instead of consoling him.

Actually, Gary Larson had a much better TWOO joke in his pre-Far Side strip, which I read in his book "The Prehistory of the Far Side." In that panel, you have Dr. Frankenstein, monster nearby, looking out the door of his castle at Dorothy, Scarecrow, Tin Man and Lion, and he tells them, "Sorry, I just used up my last heart and brain...maybe try the Wizard down the road."

My brother was fond of telling the story of the saxophonist in Paris who was so distraught about not being able to remember how "Somewhere over the Rainbow" went, he flung himself out the window of his high-rise apartment.

As he lay on the pavement below, the last thing he heard was the ambulance coming to pick him up: "Do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do...."

From the movie After Hours:
Marcy: My husband was a movie freak. Actually, he was particularly obsessed with one movie, "The Wizard of Oz." He talked about it constantly. I thought it was cute at first. On our wedding night, I was a virgin. When we made love - you've seen the movie, haven't you?
Paul: "The Wizard of Oz"? Yeah.
Marcy: Well, whenever he - you know, when he came...
Paul: Yeah.
Marcy: ...he would scream out, "Surrender Dorothy!" That's all! Just "Surrender Dorothy!"
Paul: Wow.
Marcy: Instead of saying something normal like, "Oh, God," or something normal like that. I mean, it was pretty creepy! And I told him I thought so, but he just, he just couldn't stop, he just, he just couldn't stop, he just... couldn't stop.

My favorite example of Wizard of Oz reference showing up in everyday life is the graffiti on the I-495 bridge near Washington DC. As you come around a corner the Washington LDA Temple comes into view suddenly, the bridge in front of it by line of sight. Painted on the side of the bridge is:


SURRENDER DOROTHY

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Surren...C-Temple-3.jpg
https://www.preservationmaryland.org...othy-graffiti/



The first time I saw it, I burst out laughing. I'd lived in Salt Lake City, and was familiar with LDS Temples and their modern-gothic love of spires. And I must have immediately thought of the Wizard of Oz when I saw the temple spires, just before I read the graffiti and realized that someone else thought that, too.



Apparently in the wake of the Trump presidency, another sign reading "Surrender Donald" has gone up on a different bridge:

After reading this it just occurred to me that the My Little Pony character who calls herself "The Great and Powerful Trixie" is a reference to this as well.

Looks like there are quite a few in The Simpsons.

But the one that I remembered right away was Mr. Burns' guards doing the march and song of the Winkie Guards in the episode "Rosebud".

Back in 1969, MAD Magazine did satire called The Guru of Ours, in which Dorothy really did take a "trip" and meet a lot of bizarre characters.

CAST:

Liza Minnelli as Dorothy

Tiny Tim as Auntie Em

Dustin Hoffman and Abbie Hoffman as Students at Munchkin University

Pat Boone as The Square Man

George Hamilton as The Snob Man

Michael J Pollard as The Punk Man

Ed Sullivan as The Guru

"Someday with an insane glow,
I'll get high,
and I'll freak out until my
brain starts to petrify."

you can visit a former amusement park in the NC mountains, the Land of Oz. It's open a couple of times a year to visit . They have a yellow brick road.

In "The Silence of the Lambs" (the book, not the movie) Clarice Starling enters a storage facility holding the possessions of one of Hannibal Lecter's former psychiatric patients (and a certain souvenir left behind for Clarice to discover). At one spooky juncture she says to herself "Well Toto, we're not in Kansas anymore". :

In Twister, the equipment pack was named Dorothy. Plus the cow in the tornado.
In the TV series ER, Dr. Mark Greene died peacefully to Israel Kamakawiwo'Ole's version of Somewhere Over the Rainbow.

Stargate SG1 has frequent, and I mean frequent, Wizard of Oz references.

There's a partial list here.

That's exactly what Picard thought in the episode. Turns out, the tornadoes were actually other Q sent to execute them. And they were living as humans at the time, so they had no opportunity to fight back.

You're the one person I associate with having a lot of Star Trek knowledge. Do you not remember "True Q" from TNG?

Nope. I missed a lot of TNG episodes when I was living abroad full time and have yet to catch up on them. Haven't seen that many DS9 episodes either.

There was an X-Files episode--I forget which one--where Mulder comes out of a concussion and is face to face with the Lone Gunmen. He looks at one of them and says "Oh Scarecrow, I think I'll miss you most of all!"

The 1970 Robert Altman film Brewster McCloud has lots of Wizard of Oz references, including a character dressed as Dorothy (who ends up with a dog, Toto). Margaret Hamilton, the Wicked Witch herself, was cast in the film, and is shown wearing ruby slippers. She dies in them, her ruby-slipper-clad feet stretching out like the Wicked Witch of the East's:

An excellent point, thank you! I should also mention that the saxophonist was down-and-out and had hoped to make a comeback, which is why he was so distraught.

I just learned about another reference of Wizard of Oz I wasn't aware of, but which makes sense: I saw a documentary about Nirvana's last video for "Heart Shaped Box" with comments from its director Anton Corbijn, and he mentions that all the visual ideas came from Kurt Cobain himself and that "of course it was all inspired by the Wizard of Oz."

ETA: just noticed a connection to the post above: of course Anton Corbijn is Dutch and just like the wedding company mentioned above familiar with the film.
