Dorothy Gale is swept away from a farm in Kansas to a magical land of Oz in a tornado and embarks on a quest with her new friends to see the Wizard who can help her return home in Kansas and help her friends as well.
Dorothy's house plops down into Munchkin City at precisely 4:53 in Oz. It is seven minutes from this point to the moment she meets the mayor, whose waist clock reads 5:00.
She isn't coming yet, Toto. Did she hurt you? She tried to, didn't she? Come on. We'll go tell Uncle Henry and Auntie Em.
When Dorothy falls into the pigpen and Zeke puts down the feed bucket to climb in to help her, in the background you can see Auntie Em standing in place, waiting for her cue to run up to the scene.
