Guild Worker: Stop your speaking!
Paul: You have some idea of what I could do.

Reverend Mother Mohiam: [DELETED LINE] Silence him, Jessica!
Lady Jessica: [DELETED LINE] Silence him yourself, if you can.
Paul: [DELETED LINE] For ninety generations you and your Bene Gesserit have labored in secret to produce a living, breathing super-weapon... one that would empower you to overthrow both the Guild and the Emperor. Indeed. This weapon, I am. And these goals, I have achieved. *But I will NEVER be YOURS to control.*
