The feeling of being homesick or missing home, or arriving home after a period of absence. As Dorothy experienced in her trip to Oz in the classic The Wizard of Oz.

Can also describe any encounter with a tornado, witch, munchkin, scarecrow, tinman, cowardly lion, flying monkey, or man behind the curtain.

The feeling of waking up after a halucination in technicolour and realizing that you are not in Kansas anymore.
Example 1
"Hey man, did you see that tornado take away that girl's house?"

"That's a Dorothy Moment!"

Example 2
"Last night was crazy. I saw things that I never knew existed."

"I know right! That trip was intense. Where are we?"

"Chigaco."

"Oh? We aren't in Kansas anymore?"

"That's a Dorothy Moment!"
