A Matter Of Interpretation

In The Wizard Of Oz, there is a scene when the Wicked Witch sky writes "Surrender Dorothy" (Which, by the way, would be a GREAT name for a musical act).

I see the 2 words as subject to 2 different interpretations:
1. They should surrender Dorothy
2. Dorothy should surrender herself.

I vote #1. Any other thoughts out there?

(Anything to get my mind off of this election tonight)

I vote #1, too. That's how I've always interpreted it.

I thinks it's #1.

Is this any kind of evidence?

I always assumed it was #2 and that the comma was missing. (It's hard to make a smoke comma on a flying broom, you know.)

I'm with Jeff. Just too hard to manipulate that broom at such high speeds to form a comma. One must also take note that the good dimwits of the emerald city, after reading the message, didn't even know who Dorothy was. They all went running to the little man behind the curtain for answers. Did the witch give them too much credit? I think not. No, no; that message was for Dorothy and Dorothy alone. It was mano e mano...especially after that ruby slipper business.
