Tin Man and Lion
And Scarecrow’s brain?

Wizard
Why, anybody can have a brain.
That’s a very mediocre commodity. 

Every pusillanimous creature
that crawls on the earth,
or slinks through slimy seas has a brain!
Back where I come from we have universities
– seats of great learning –
where men go to become great thinkers.
And when they come out, they think deep thoughts,
and with no more brains than you have.
But – they have one thing you haven’t got – a diploma! 

Therefore, by virtue of the authority vested in me
by the Universita Committeeatum E Pluribus Unum,
I hereby confer upon you the honorary degree of Th.D.

Scarecrow
Th.D.?

Wizard
Yeah – that – that’s Dr. of Thinkology

Scarecrow
The sum of the square roots
of any two sides of an isosceles triangle
is equal to the square root of the remaining side.
Oh, joy! Rapture! I’ve got a brain!
How can I ever thank you enough?

Wizard
Well, you can’t!
