Scarecrow: Maybe not where you're from. 

 

*Dorothy screams and jumps back.*

 

Scarecrow: I'm so sorry. Please don't be frightened. Oh, if only I had a brain I would have known not to scare you so. What a silly scarecrow I am!

 

Dorothy: Um... not at all: you just caught me by surprise, that's all. 

 

Scarecrow: It was very inconsiderate of me. No wonder I'm stuffed with straw and stuck up on a pole after thoughtless behaviour like that. 

 

Dorothy: Don't you like being a scarecrow?
