영화로 영어 배우는것 The Wizard of Oz: "We Aren't in Kansas Anymore."

The Wizard of Oz (1939!) is one of the most famous movies of all time.  One of the most famous lines is Dorothy's "We aren't in Kansas anymore."  Today, that line has been adopted hundreds, thousands of times.  There are multiple meanings.  Here are some of them.

A.  We are somewhere we have never been.
B.  We are not in the countryside (시골) anymore.
C.  We have come a long way from where we started.

You get the idea.  The point is that the new place where Dorothy arrived was far, far different from where she once was.  It was new, strange, and she realized that she didn't understand anything around her.  She wasn't in Kansas anymore.
