What Exactly Did You Mean By That, Dorothy?

Juliana and I watched The Wizard of Oz this afternoon and though I love this movie, I never realized how odd Dorothy's speech is at the end of the movie. She says:

"If I ever go looking for my heart's desire again, I won't look any further than my own back yard. Because if it isn't there, I never really lost it to begin with!�

Yeah. Why should we think about leaving our little farm in Kansas? Everything we ever needed is right here! Doesn't seem like a very progressive statement, does it? I know, I know, she's just trying to drive the "There's no place like home" sentiment in but still, it seems a little short-sighted to me.

It's just a movie, Tracey!!
