The four travelers left the Winkies to head toward the Emerald City. When they became lost, Dorothy blew the whistle to summon the field mice. They told her to use the spell of the Golden Cap to call the Winged Monkeys. The Winged Monkeys came and started to carry the travelers to the Emerald City. As they flew the King of the Winged Monkeys told this story.

There was once a beautiful princess who was a powerful sorceress named Gayelette. She wanted to find a husband, but could not find anyone who was suitable. One day she found a handsome boy named Quelala. She took him to her palace and raised him to be strong and kind. When Quelala was walking one day, the Winged Monkeys, who were always playing tricks, picked up Quelala and dropped him into the river. He was dressed in rich clothing of silk and velvet. Gayelette became angry. She told the Winged Monkeys that she was going to tie their wings together and drop them into the river. The King of the Winged Monkeys pleaded for this not to happen because he knew they could not swim with their wings tied. Gayelette spared their lives under one condition. She placed a spell on the Golden Cap which she had purchased as a wedding gift for Quelala. The Winged Monkeys had to be slaves three times to the owner of the Golden Cap, whoever had it at the time. Quelala had used the Golden Cap only once to order the Winged Monkeys to stay away. Later the Golden Cap fell into the hands of the Wicked Witch of the West.

The Winged Monkeys dropped the travelers off at the gate to the Emerald City and left.
