View Quote Reverend Mother Gaius Helen Mohiam: Do you know of the Water of Life? The bile of the newborn worms of Arrakis?
Paul Atreides: I have heard of it.
Reverend Mother: It is very dangerous and deadly. The Bene Gesserit women who drink it use it to see from within. There is a place...terrifying to women. It is said...a man will come...the Kwisatz Haderach. He will go where we cannot. Many men have tried.
Paul: They tried and failed?
Reverend Mother: They tried and died.
View Quote Reverend Mother Gaius Helen Mohiam: I hold at your neck the gom jabbar. This one kills only animals.
Paul Atreides: Are you suggesting the Duke's son is an animal?
Reverend Mother: Let us say I suggest you may be human. Your awareness may be powerful enough to control your instincts. Your instinct would be to remove your hand from the box. If you do so, you die. You will feel... an itching... there! Now, the itching becomes burning. Heat upon heat upon heat.
Paul: It burns!
Reverend Mother: Silence! SILENCE!!
View Quote Reverend Mother Gaius Helen Mohiam: Jessica, you were told to bear only daughters to the Atreides. [Jessica ignores her, lost in thought] Jessica!
Jessica Atreides: It meant so much to him.
Reverend Mother: You thought only of a Duke's desire for a son?! Desires don't come into this. An Atreides daughter could've been wed to a Harkonnen heir and sealed the breach! We may lose both bloodlines now.
Jessica: I vowed never to regret my decision. I'll pay for all my own mistakes.
Reverend Mother: And your son will pay with you!
View Quote Spacing Guildsman: Emperor Shaddam IV, you have one last chance to take matters into your own hands and bring the situation under control on Arrakis.
Padishah Emperor Shaddam IV: What do you mean, one last—
Spacing Guildsman: Do not speak! Listen! You do not have more than this one chance! I represent the entire Guild in this matter! Our navigators warn you that spice production is in great danger! A new Fremen leader, Muad'dib, has stopped spice mining on Arrakis! Our navigators suggest he is not of Arrakis. No one on the outside world has been able to see him. We do not know who he is. The Harkonnens cannot stop him. Remedy the situation! Restore spice production, or you will live out your life in a pain amplifier!
