View Quote What do you call the mouse shadow on the second moon? The dream unfolds. Usul, we have wormsign the likes of which even God has never seen. Paul Atreides: I know, Thufir, I'm sitting with my back to the door. I hear you, Dr. Yueh, and Gurney coming down the hall.
Thufir Hawat: Those sounds could be imitated!
Paul: I'd know the difference.
Thufir: [voiceover] Yes, perhaps he would at that.
View Quote Baron Vladimir 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: 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!
View Quote Dr. Wellington Yueh: I sabotaged the house generators. We are wide open! I've destroyed the new army's weirding modules. I've brought House Atreides down.
Duke Leto Atreides: Why?
Yueh: I wish to kill a man. Not you, my dear Duke. You are already dead. But you will get close to the Baron before you die. You will be tied and drugged, but you can still attack. You can still attack! When you see the Baron, you will have a new poison gas tooth. He'll want you close so he can gloat over you. One bite on this tooth, and a strong exhale...
Leto: Refuse...
Yueh: No! You mustn't! Because in return, I'll save the lives of your Paul and Jessica. (Yueh removes the Ducal signet ring from his finger) For Paul. (Yueh then takes out the Duke's organic tooth and replaces it with a poison gas capsule in his tooth) When you see the Baron, remember the tooth, the tooth, (echo) the tooth.
View Quote Feyd-Rautha: You see your death. My blade will finish you.
Paul Atreides: [voiceover] I will bend like a reed in the wind.
View Quote Iakin Nefud: What are your orders, Piter?
Piter De Vries: (referring to Jessica and Paul) Take them to the desert as the traitor suggested. The worms will destroy the evidence. Their bodies must never be found.
View Quote Muad'Dib: Gurney, when the storm hits, set off the atomics. I want an opening through the entire Shield Wall. Stilgar, do we have wormsign?
Stilgar: Usul, we have wormsign the likes of which even God has never seen.
View Quote Padishah Emperor Shaddam IV: Why have you brought me here?
Baron Vladimir Harkonnen: Your Highness, there must be some mistake. I never requested your presence.
Emperor: Ah, but your lack of action demanded it. Your dreadful mismanagement, your bad judgment in assigning to Rabban the governorship! You have forced me to come here and set things straight personally!
Alia Atreides: I am a messenger from Muad'Dib. Poor Emperor. I'm afraid my brother won't be very pleased with you.
Emperor: Silence!
Reverand Mother Gaius Helen Mohiam: Kill this child. She's an abomination. Kill her! [groans then yells at Alia] Get out of my mind!
Alia: Not until you tell them both who I really am!
Reverend Mother: Alia, daughter of Duke Leto the Just and the royal lady Jessica, sister of Paul Muad'Dib.
Emperor: Paul's sister? Paul is Muad'Dib?
View Quote Paul Atreides: [holding a knife to Gurney's throat] Is this what you seek?
Gurney Halleck: Good. The slow blade penetrates the shield, but ah, look down. [Paul sees Gurney's blade at his own waist.] We'd have joined each other in death. You did seem, finally, to get in the mood. [they both turn their shields off]
Paul: Would you really have drawn my blood?
Gurney: If you had fought one whit below your abilities, I'd have given you a good scar to remind you.
Paul: Things have been so serious here lately.
Gurney: Soon we leave for Arrakis. Arrakis is real. The Harkonnens are real.
View Quote Paul Atreides: Duncan!
Duncan Idaho: Paul. I was just on my way to say good-bye to you. I have to go on ahead, alone. I won't be seeing you for a while.
Paul: I wish you were coming with us. Why?
Duncan: There's something for your father. He wants to talk to you. I'll see you on Arrakis. May the hand of God be with you.
Paul: May the hand of God be with us all, Duncan.
View Quote Paul Atreides: Emperor Shaddam IV, there are Guild heighliners above us containing many great Houses of the Landsraad. Send them back!
Padishah Emperor Shaddam IV: How dare you speak to me in that—
Spacing Guild Agent: Stop your speaking!
Paul: You have some idea of what I could do. [to Reverend Mother Mohiam] 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 Gaius Helen Mohiam: You mustn't speak—
Paul: Silence! I remember your Gom Jabbar. Now you'll remember mine. I can kill with a word.
Fremen warrior: And his word shall carry death eternal to those who stand against the righteous.
Feyd-Rautha Harkonnen: The righteous?
Paul: There is a Harkonnen among you. Give the Harkonnen a blade and let him stand forth.
Emperor Shaddam: If Feyd wishes, he can meet you with my blade in his hand.
Feyd-Rautha: I wish it!
Gurney Halleck: This is a Harkonnen animal! Let me. Please, my lord.
Paul: The Emperor's blade.
View Quote Paul Atreides: My father sent you to test me. Music, then?
Gurney Halleck: No music — I'm packing this [puts down his baliset] for the crossing. Shield practice.
Paul: Shield practice? Gurney, I thought we had practice this morning. I'm not in the mood.
Gurney: Not in the mood?! Mood's a thing for cattle and love play, not fighting.
Paul: I'm sorry, Gurney.
Gurney: [draws a knife and raises his body shield] Not sorry enough.
View Quote Paul Atreides: We Fremen have a saying: God created Arrakis to train the faithful. One cannot go against the word of God.
Alia Atreides: [as rain begins falling on Arrakis] And how can this be? For he is the Kwisatz Haderach!
View Quote Paul Atreides: 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, and your mother shall be a Sayyadina among us... We welcome you.
Paul: [thinks] The dream unfolds.
View Quote Paul Atreides: What's in the box?
Reverend Mother Gaius Helen Mohiam: Pain.
View Quote Paul Atreides: You've no need for your weapons with me, Gurney Halleck.
Gurney Halleck: Paul? Paul?
Paul: Don't you trust your own eyes?
Gurney: They said you were dead. They said— [sees Paul's signet ring and embraces him] You young pup! You young pup!
