The Wizard of Oz (1939)

THE WICKED WITCH OF THE WEST and several of her winged monkeys have trapped DOROTHY, TIN MAN, SCARECROW, the COWARDLY LION and TOTO against the wall. The Witch raises her broomstick and magically ignites the end of it.

WITCH: How about a little fire, Scarecrow?

She thrusts the flaming broom toward Scarecrow. His straw arm catches fire, and he begins to run around, swatting at it.


SCARECROW: Help! I'm burning! Help! Help!

Dorothy finds a bucket of water and throws it at Scarecrow's arm. Some of it splashes the Witch, who screams in agony. She rips off her wet cloak and pointy hat to reveal flowing black hair and a surprisingly buxom figure covered only by a soaking wet cotton tank top and cutoff jeans.


The Witch grabs a second bucket of water and throws it at Dorothy, drenching Dorothy's tight little farmer's outfit. Dorothy tackles the Witch to the ground. The two roll around, screaming and ripping each other's wet clothes off as Scarecrow, Tin Man and the Cowardly Lion exchange excited high fives.



Psycho (1960)

MARION CRANE undresses and steps into the steaming shower of her Bates Motel suite. She lets the water wash over her, as if cleaning away the stress of the long, tiresome day.

A large shadow stealthily approaches the shower. The curtain is violently torn away. Marion turns and shrieks in terror as two pimple-faced undergrads videotape her with a Sony DV Handycam. The one not holding the camera is wearing 3-D glasses and eating popcorn, as if watching a movie.


Marion wraps herself in the shower curtain and runs out of the bathroom. The two undergrads laugh and pat each other on the back.


PIMPLE-FACED UNDERGRAD #1: Who said college wouldn't be fun?

PIMPLE-FACED UNDERGRAD #2: Welcome to Bonertown. Population: my boner.

They laugh and chase after Marion.


It's A Wonderful Life (1946)

A cold and befuddled GEORGE BAILEY stands shivering outside Nick's Bar with CLARENCE, his guardian angel.

CLARENCE: You've been given a great gift, George: a chance to see what the world would be like without you.

GEORGE: Then if I wasn't born, who am I?

CLARENCE: You're nobody. You have no identity.

George is struggling to comprehend Clarence's answer when an E! Wild On tour bus pulls up next to them. The door slides open and TARA REID—inexplicably in full color—steps out, margarita in hand, wearing a yellow bikini and white miniskirt.

TARA REID: Hi, boys. I came here to tape Wild On: Bedford Falls, but it turns out some jerk named Potter bought the whole town and won't let us shoot here. Now I'm heading down to South Beach for New Year's. Wanna come?

George and Clarence look at one another with disbelief. They gleefully follow Tara Reid onto the bus. Just before boarding they look at each other once more and, in unison, do Bill and Ted-style air guitars.
