Dune (1984)
Paul: They tried and failed?
Reverend Mother Mohiam: They tried and died.

Paul: What's in the box?
Reverend Mother Mohiam: Pain.

Alia: I am a messenger from Muad'Dib. Poor Emperor. I'm afraid my brother won't be very pleased with you.
Padishah Emperor Shaddam IV: Silence!
Reverend Mother Mohiam: Kill this child. She's an abomination. Kill her!
Reverend Mother Mohiam: [groans then yells at Alia] Get out of my mind!
Alia: [using the voice] Not until you tell them both who I *really* am!
Reverend Mother Mohiam: [Weakly] Alia, daughter of Duke Leto the Just and the royal lady Jessica. Sister... of Paul... Muad'Dib.
Padishah Emperor Shaddam IV: Paul's sister? Paul is Muad'Dib?

Reverend Mother Mohiam: Jessica you were told to bear only daughters to the Atreides.
[Jessica ignores her, lost in thought]
Reverend Mother Mohiam: Jessica!
Lady Jessica: It meant so much to him.
Reverend Mother Mohiam: You thought only of a Duke's desire for a son? Desires don't come into this. An Atreides daughter could have been wed to a Harkonnen heir and sealed the breech. We may lose both bloodlines now.
Lady Jessica: I vowed never to regret my decision. I'll pay for all my own mistakes.
Reverend Mother Mohiam: And your son will pay with you.

Reverend Mother Mohiam: We'll salvage what we can. But I can tell you, dear God, for the father, nothing.
Lady Jessica: [inside her head] For the father, nothing?
Reverend Mother Mohiam: Did you really think that you could bear the Kwisatz Haderach? The universe's super being? How dare you. My greatest student, and my greatest disappointment.
[she notices Paul is not sleeping]
Reverend Mother Mohiam: He's awake. He's listening to us. Good. Ready yourself young Paul Atreides. I want to see you in your mother's chambers in one quarter of an hour.
Lady Jessica: Paul, this is very important.

Paul: Emperor Shaddam IV, there are Guild Heighliners above us containing many Great Houses of the Laandsraad. Send them back.
Padishah Emperor Shaddam IV: How dare you speak to me in...
Guild Worker: Stop your speaking!
Paul: You have some idea of what I could do.
Paul: [the Reverend Mother Mohiam growls at him] Don't try your powers on me. Try looking into that place where you dare not look.You'll find me there, staring back at you.
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.*
Reverend Mother Mohiam: [Using the Voice] *You mustn't speak... *
Paul: [Also using the Voice, which overpowers her] SILENCE!
[she is knocked backward against several Guild Workers]
Paul: I remember your gom jabbar, now you'll remember mine. I can kill with a word.

Reverend Mother Mohiam: [after the ordeal of the box] Kul Wahad! No woman-child ever withstood that much!

Reverend Mother Mohiam: Ignore the regular order of training. His safety requires the Voice.
Paul: I've heard enough about my safety! What about my father? You talk about him as if he were dead, well he's not!
Lady Jessica: Paul...
Paul: Well he's not! And he won't die. Tell me he won't die. Mother, tell me!
Reverend Mother Mohiam: Everything that can be done has been done.

Padishah Emperor Shaddam IV: I want telepathy during our meeting.
Reverend Mother Mohiam: I am your Truthsayer, my Lord. He's here, my Lord!

Reverend Mother Mohiam: We must have a look at Paul Atreides.

Lady Jessica: Please...
Reverend Mother Mohiam: Jessica, you know it must be done.

Reverend Mother Mohiam: I hold at your neck the Gom Jabarr. This one kills only animals.
Paul: You dare suggest a Duke's son is an animal?
Reverend Mother Mohiam: Let us say, I think you may be human. A human can control his instincts. Your instinct will be to draw your hand out of the box. You do, you die.

Reverend Mother Mohiam: Get out of my mind!
Alia: [using the Voice] Not until you tell them who I really am!

Guildmaster: The Bene Gesserit Witch must leave.
Padishah Emperor Shaddam IV: Leave us.
Reverend Mother Mohiam: Yes, my Lord.

Reverend Mother Mohiam: [reading minds from the corridor] Yes! Here it comes.
