Paul: I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when my fear is gone I will turn and face fear's path, and only I will remain.
Piter De Vries: It is by will alone I set my mind in motion. It is by the juice of Sapho that thoughts acquire speed, the lips acquire stains, stains become a warning. It is by will alone I set my mind in motion.
Princess Irulan: A beginning is a very delicate time. Know then, that it is the year 10191. The known universe is ruled by the Padisha Emperor Shaddam IV, my father. In this time, the most precious substance in the Universe is the spice melange. The spice extends life. The spice expands consciousness. The spice is vital to space travel. The Spacing Guild and its navigators, who the spice has mutated over four-thousand years, use the orange spice gas, which gives them the ability to fold space. That is, travel to any part of the Universe without moving. Oh yes, I forget to tell you. The spice exists on only one planet in the entire Universe. A desolate, dry planet with vast deserts. Hidden away within the rocks of these deserts are a people known as the Fremen, who have long held a prophecy, that a man would come, a messiah, who would lead them to true freedom. The planet is Arrakis. Also known as Dune.
Duke Leto Atreides: I'll miss the sea, but a person needs new experiences. They jar something deep inside, allowing him to grow. Without change something sleeps inside us, and seldom awakens. The sleeper must awaken.
Baron Harkonnen: He who controls the Spice, controls the universe!
Paul: Some thoughts have a certain sound, that being the equivalent to a form. Through sound and motion, you will be able to paralyze nerves, shatter bones, set fires, suffocate an enemy or burst his organs. We will kill until no Harkonnen breathes Arakeen air.
Guildmaster: We foresee a slight problem within House Atreides. Paul, Paul Atreides.
Padishah Emperor Shaddam IV: You mean of course Duke Leto, his father?
Guildmaster: I mean Paul Atreides. We want him killed. I did not say this. I am not here.
Padishah Emperor Shaddam IV: I understand.
Guildmaster: A Secret Report within the Guild. Four Planets have come to our attention regarding a plot which could jeopardise Spice Production: Planet Arrakis, Source of the Spice. Planet Caladan, home of House Atreides. Planet Geidi Prime, home of House Harkonnen. Planet Kaitain, Home of the Emperor of the Known Universe. Send a third-stage Guild Navigator to Kaitain to demand details from the Emperor. The Spice must flow.
Baron Harkonnen: I will have Arrakis back for myself! He who controls the Spice controls the universe and what Piter did not tell you is we have control of someone who is very close, very close, to Duke Leto! This person, this traitor, will be worth more to us than ten legions of Sardaukar!
Feyd-Rautha: And who is this, traitor?
Baron Harkonnen: I won't tell you who the traitor is, or when we'll attack. However, the Duke will die before these eyes and he'll know, he'll know, that it is I, Baron Vladimir Harkonnen, who encompasses his doom!
Paul: What do you call the mouse shadow on the second moon?
Stilgar: We call that one Muad'Dib.
Paul: Could I be known as Paul Muad'Dib?
Stilgar: You are Paul Muad'Dib!
Alia: And how can this be? For he is the Kwisatz Haderach!
Lady Jessica: [Stumbling around a corner, blood dripping from her nose] Alia...
Alia: [she falls into her mother's arms, also covered in blood] Mother, it's Paul. He has taken the Water of Life.
Lady Jessica: Paul's voice?
Alia: The Guild... they're fighting me in the mental vaults. They're behind everything. They fear the one who will come, who will know more, who will see more. The Guild is behind everything. It's not finished yet. I'm not formed.
Paul: Irulan shall be my wife, opening the way for an Atreides to take the throne.
Padishah Emperor Shaddam IV: I sit on the throne!
Paul: You will sit on the throne on Selusa Secundus, your prison planet. Either that, or you will die.
[he walks towards Chani]
Paul: The princess shall have no more of me than my name... no child of mine, nor touch, nor softness of glance, nor instant of desire.
[he tenderly strokes her cheek]
Paul: This is promise to you, my love.
Lady Jessica: Think on it, Chani. We who carry the name of concubine... history will call us wives.
Lady Jessica: [Jessica and Leto are lying in bed together the night before the family's journey to Arrakis] I once told you a daughter would be conceived at a time of parting.
Duke Leto Atreides: I remember. Conceived in love, at a time of parting. Arrakis is a hostile world.
Lady Jessica: I must be sure you want this. It has to be tonight, under these influences. I could hear you with the wind.
Duke Leto Atreides: And I whispered 'Yes'.
Lady Jessica: And I whispered 'I love you'.
Duke Leto Atreides: I'll miss the sea. But a man needs new experiences. They jar something deep inside, allowing him to grow. Without change, something sleeps inside of us and seldom awakens. The sleeper must awaken.
Paul: We Fremen have a saying: "God created Arakis to train the faithful." One cannot go against the word of God.
Paul: Stilgar, do we have wormsign?
Stilgar: Usul, we have wormsign the likes of which even God has never seen.
Gurney Halleck: Behold, as a wild ass in the desert, go I forth to my work.
Feyd-Rautha: Why are you going to prolong the inevitable? I will kill you!
Padishah Emperor Shaddam IV: Bring in that floating fat man, the Baron!
Duke Leto Atreides: [responding to Thufir's resignation, after Paul narrowly cheats death via a "hunter-seeker," with which his chamber was boobytrapped] ... Enough of this, Thufir! *If* you made a mistake, it was in over-estimating the Harkonnens. Their simple minds came up with a simple trick! Moreover, Paul survived this largely because of your training; you didn't fail there.
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?
Paul: [sees Thufir] My God.
Paul: They've taken your mind.
Paul: Gurney, I see Thufir Hawat among the captives. Let him stand free.
Feyd-Rautha: [turns towards Thufir] The antidote.
[he slips a knife inside Thufir's sleeve]
Gurney Halleck: Thufir, come.
Paul: In payment of the many years of service to my family, you may ask me of anything you wish. Do you need my life, old friend? It is yours.
Paul: I mean this Thufir, if you are to strike, do it now.
Thufir Hawat: [raises knife, to everyone's shock, but drops it and turns back to Feyd] Did you truly believe, even for a moment, that I would fail my Duke TWICE?
[He rips out his own heart plug, then collapses into Paul's arms]
Thufir Hawat: Three generations of... you...
Paul: Carry this noble Atreides warrior away. Do him all honor.
Paul: Now remember, walk without rhythm, and we won't attract the worm.
The Baron's Doctor: You are SO beautiful, my Baron. Your skin, love to me. Your diseases lovingly cared for, for all eternity.
Piter De Vries: As you instructed me, I have enlightened your nephews concerning my plan...
Baron Harkonnen: *My* plan!
Piter De Vries: ...*the* plan... to crush the Atreides.
Dr. Kynes: Bless the maker and his water, bless the coming and going of him, may his passing cleanse the world.
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.
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.
Duncan Idaho: As you know, the Imperium has never been able to take a census of the Fremen. Everyone thinks that there are but few, wandering here and there in the desert. My lord, I suspect an incredible secret has been kept on this planet: that the Fremen exist in vast numbers - vast. And it is they who control Arrakis.
Paul: You have no need for your weapons with me, Gurney Halleck.
Gurney Halleck: Shield Practice.
Paul: Gurney, we had practice this morning. I'm not in the mood.
Gurney Halleck: Not in the mood? Mood's a thing for cattle and loveplay, not fighting!
Paul: I'm sorry Gurney.
Gurney Halleck: Not sorry enough.
Piter De Vries: I knew Yueh's wife. I was the one who broke his Imperial conditioning. I've thought of many pleasures with you. It is perhaps better that you die in the innards of a worm. Desire clouds my reason. That is not good. That is bad.
Paul: I'm dead to everyone unless I become what I may be.
The Baron's Doctor: [treating Baron Harkonnen] Put the pick in there, Pete, and turn it 'round real neat.
Paul: Is it true, that the sand can blow at seven hundred kilometers per hour?
Dr. Wellington Yueh: It can render flesh to dust in minutes. And these dry winds can generate tremendous static electricity in the atmosphere. Our body shields won't have enough power to operate in the open air on Arrakis.
Reverend Mother Ramallo: We are the secret of the universe. We are the secret. We know of CHOAM in the universe, Combine Honnete Ober Advancer Mercantiles, controlled by the Emperor Shaddam IV and all the great housses of the Landsraad. We know of CHOAM, yet we are the secret. We know of the Bene Gesserit sisterhood, their selective breeding plan for 90 generations to produce the Kwisatz Haderach, whom they will control. The one they call the witches, yet we are the secret. We know of the Guild and the navigators' power to fold space and their control over all interplanetary travel. We know they have the seeing eye, yet we are the secret. The Bakka shall weep no more for there is now at work a higher power.
Thufir Hawat: My lord?
Duke Leto Atreides: Thufir, haven't you heard from Duncan Idaho yet?
Thufir Hawat: No sire. I have, however, discovered what the city Freemen called out to Paul when we entered the city.
Duke Leto Atreides: Mahdi... And Lisan al Ghaeeb. Yes.
Thufir Hawat: It is a prophecy that a young leader will come to them with a Bene Gesserit mother. It follows the familiar messiah pattern.
Duke Leto Atreides: But Mahdi?
Thufir Hawat: Yes. It seems it is written that he will lead them to true freedom.
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.
Reverend Mother Mohiam: [after the ordeal of the box] Kul Wahad! No woman-child ever withstood that much!
Thufir Hawat: Remember, the first step in avoiding a trap is knowing that one has been set.
Paul: If we know it's a trap, then why are we going?
Thufir Hawat: We have our new Army. Dr. Yueh, put the weirding module on him.
[Thufir holds Paul's shoulders admiringly, then playfully mimes stabbing him in the side of the neck]
Paul: Don't you believe your own eyes?
Gurney Halleck: They said you were dead! They said...
Paul: [shows him the signet ring]
Gurney Halleck: [hugs him] You young puppy! You young puppy!
Paul: Gurney, man! Gurney, man!
Baron Harkonnen: The drug was timed. Dr. Yueh has been very useful to us.
Feyd-Rautha: All I see is an Atreides I want to kill.
Baron Harkonnen: Come, Feyd, Thufir's a Harkonnen now. Aren't you Thufir?
Thufir Hawat: [voice over] Oh, my Duke, how I've failed you.
Piter De Vries: I imagined many pleasures with you. It is better perhaps that you die in the innards of a Worm.
Dr. Kynes: [voice over] He cares more about his men than the Spice. I have to admit, against my better judgement, I like this Duke.
Dr. Kynes: [voice over] He shall know your ways as if born to them.
Reverend Mother Ramallo: And now, the Prophecy, a man shall come from the outer World. He will lead us out of Darkness. A Jihad.
Stilgar: Usul, we have wormsign the likes of which God has never seen!
Paul: I know, Thufir, I'm sitting with my back to the door. I heard you, Dr. Yueh and Gurney coming down the hall.
Thufir Hawat: Those sounds could be imitated!
Paul: [Looks around and sees he was right] I'd know the difference.
Thufir Hawat: [voice over] Yes, perhaps he would at that.
Paul: [voice over] From my dream, so beautiful.
Chani: I would not have allowed you to hurt my people.
Paul: Are you a Fremen?
Dr. Kynes: I've been here working in the service of the Emperor long enough for my eyes to change.
Dr. Wellington Yueh: [examining the Arakeen house staff] Excuse me, Ma'am, the Harkonnens may have tampered with them medically.
Lady Jessica: When you said Harkonnen, I had no idea you had such cause to hate them.
Dr. Wellington Yueh: My wife. You didn't know my wife? The Hark... forgive me if I can't talk about it.
Lady Jessica: [voice over] They must have killed her.
[looks at him grimace]
Lady Jessica: He's holding something back... but there
[looks at his forehead and sees the Suk School diamond tattoo]
Lady Jessica: the Imperial Seal of Conditioning, assurance of trust...
Shadout Mapes: [Paul has caught the hunter-seeker and smashed it] It would have killed me!
Paul: I was its target.
Thufir Hawat: We're finding these sabotaged devices too easily...
Baron Harkonnen: Am I alive? Am I alive?
Nefud: Yes. You're alive, my Baron.
Baron Harkonnen: I'm alive! Ha!
[floats up in the air]
Baron Harkonnen: I'm alive! Ha-ha-ha!
Guildmaster: [to the Emperor] Remedy this situation, restore spice production, or you will live out your life in a pain amplifier!
Duke Leto Atreides: Oh Jessica, my beloved concubine. I should have married you.
Thufir Hawat: Sector six through eighty progress reports, Sire.
Duke Leto Atreides: Take it, Thufir.
Thufir Hawat: [speaking rapidly into a communications device] Sector six-eighty, copy the sixth the sum of the eighth quadrant of the ninth plus eight-four circles weave the eighth quarter the fourth, copy!
[the device hums briefly]
Thufir Hawat: [to the communication device] Eight! Thufir Hawat, Mentant, Master of Assassins.
Thufir Hawat: [to the Duke] The palace is now secure.
Padishah Emperor Shaddam IV: This is genocide! The systematic extermination of all life on Arrakis!
Paul: [dreams of Dune breaking up] The Emperor is coming!
Baron Harkonnen: What does Leto say, Piter?
Piter De Vries: Vendetta, he says, using the ancient tongue. The art of kanly is still alive in the Universe. He does not wish to meet or speak with you.
Baron Harkonnen: I made my peace gesture. The forms of kanly have been obeyed!
Dr. Wellington Yueh: [to Duke Leto] I've brought House Atriedes down.
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!
Baron Harkonnen: You wish to join your wife, is that it, traitor?
Dr. Wellington Yueh: She lives?
Baron Harkonnen: You wish to join her? So, join her!
Piter De Vries: [stabs Yueh in the back]
Dr. Wellington Yueh: You think you have won? You think I don't know what I gained for my wife?
Baron Harkonnen: Take him away.
Baron Harkonnen: This is what I'll do to the Duke and his family.
The Beast Rabban: [rips up Dr Kynes' stillsuit] Go now. Take him to his Desert. To die.
Guildmaster: We just folded space from Ix...
Padishah Emperor Shaddam IV: Oh yes? How was your journey?
Guildmaster: Many machines on Ix, new machines.
Padishah Emperor Shaddam IV: Oh, really?
Guildmaster: Not as good as those on Richese...
Paul: Would you really have drawn my blood?
Gurney Halleck: If you'd fought one whit below your abilities, I'd have given you a good scar to remind you.
Lady Jessica: I know she has come to test him. No man has ever survived being tested with the box. Tonight I may lose my son.
Padishah Emperor Shaddam IV: Give this abomination to the storm!
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.
