Long live the fighters.  (taglines)
Where you see sand here, imagine water. You dive in. You can't reach the bottom.

Paul Atreides

  • Sister, Father is dead. Shouldn't you go back to the stars, be with him? I'm afraid I won't have enough time to fix things before your coming. This world is beyond cruelty.
  • Look at how your Bene Gesserit propaganda has taken root. some of them already think I'm their Messiah. Others... a false prophet.
  • Let me fight beside you. That's all I'm asking.
  • Now that's interesting, because in the filmbooks, the anthropologists say in order to properly sandwalk, you actually have— Never mind. Please keep going.
  • You've been fighting the Harkonnens for decades. My family's been fighting them for centuries. I know everything about them, their habits, their ways of thinking. You know everything about the desert, you harness the very power of it. We can stop them together, bury them in the sand where they belong so that this planet can be yours once more.
  • [to Gurney] I recognized your footsteps... Old Man.
  • Our enemies are all around us. And in so many futures, they prevail. But I do see a way. There is a narrow way through.
  • We're Harkonnens. So this is how we will survive. By being Harkonnens.
  • [in Chakobsa] Your mothers warned out about my coming! Fear the moment. [in English] But do you think you could have a chance? [in Chakobsa] But you're afraid. What if I could be the One? This could be the moment you've been praying for, all your life. You're praying now to your grandmother. She died nine moons ago. She lost an eye. A rock smashed her face when she was crossing the Belt. She was twelve when it happened. At that time, this world had a Fremen name. Dune.
  • I am Paul Muad'dib Atreides, Duke of Arrakis. [in Chakobsa] The Hand of God be my witness! I am the Voice from the Outer World. I will lead you to PARADISE!
  • [in Chakobsa] Long live the fighters! (Addaam reshii a-zaanta!)
  • [to Baron Harkonnen] Grandfather. You die like an animal.
  • I want you to know... I will love you as long as I breathe.


  • We believe in Fremen. You want to control people, you tell them a Messiah will come. Then they'll wait, for centuries.
  • [to Paul] You sandwalk like a drunk lizard.
  • Your blood comes from Dukes and Great Houses. We don't have that here. Here, we're equal, men and women alike. What we do, we do for the benefit of all.
  • You will never lose me, Paul Atreides. Not as long as you stay who you are.
  • This prophecy is how they enslave us! How they dominate--!
  • I won't be fighting for him. I'm fighting for my people.

Lady Jessica Atreides

  • [regarding her "promotion" to Reverend Mother] Well, it was a choice between this or death so, you know, forgive me if I'm not flattered.
  • Paul. She talks to me. She believes in you. She says... [in Chakobsa] "Kwisatz Haderach, show us the way." [in English] You're so close now! Only one steps remains, and you will become Kwisatz Haderach. Only one steps remains! You must do what I did; you must drink the Water of Life. And your mind, it's gonna-- it's gonna open and you will see! [in Chakobsa] The beauty, and the horror!
  • If we want to protect your brother, we need all the Fremen to believe in the prophecy. We must convert the non-believers, one by ones. We need to start with the weaker ones. The vulnerable ones. The ones who fear us.
  • Shai-Hulud shall bow to the Boy from the Outer World. Will Shai-Hulud not know the Mahdi when He comes? Then share the Word.
  • I'll be waiting for you. All of us.

Princess Irulan Corrino

  • My father's always been guided by the calculus of power.
  • In the shadows of Arrakis lie many secrets, but the darkest of them all may remain. The end of house Atreides.
  • Repression only makes a religion flourish.
  • Prophets get stronger when they die. Let the conflict on Arrakis turn into war. You then bring peace, as a savior.
  • You've been preparing me my whole life.

Feyd-Rautha Harkonnen

  • Bring his body to my quarters. My poor darlings are hungry. There was no food for them on the flight.
  • [to Rabban] You humiliated our family. You humiliated me. Kiss, or die.
  • I already know everything I need to know. Only pleasure remains.
  • Muad'Dib is dead. Or he went hiding in the Southern storms, which is the same thing.
  • "Cousin"? Is that right? Well, you wouldn't be the first relative I've killed.
  • [last words] You fought well, Atreides.

Emperor Shaddam IV

  • Deal with this prophet. Send assassins.
  • [to Paul] Do you know why? I killed him because he was a man who believed in the rules of the heart. But the heart is not meant to rule. In other words, your father was a weak man.


  • [repeated line] Lisan al-Gaib!
  • Never give your water away, not even for the dead.
  • The Madhi is too humble to say He is the Madhi! Even more reason to know He is! As written!
  • Muad'Dib is wise in the ways of the desert. Muad'Dib... creates his own water. The constellation that points to the North Star, we call Muad'Dib -- "The One Who Points the Way". That is a powerful name.
  • Don't try to impress anyone. You’re brave, we all know that. Be simple, be direct. Nothing fancy.


  • Introductory placard: Power over spice is power over all.
  • Fremen Funerial Chant: To the well, our water we return. We bless our brother, Jamis.
  • Baron Vladimir Harkonnen: Tighten your grib, Rabban. Or feel mine on your neck.
  • Shishakli: Hey, Muad'Dib! Don't embarrass us! Call a big one!
  • Lady Fenring: Plans within plans...
  • Reverend Mother: "Hope"? We are Bene Gesserit. We don't hope, we plan.
  • Gurney: Do away with these idiots I blame / My stillsuit is full of piss / My hand is caked in sand / Save me from these utter morons, another world / Another land...
  • Gurney: No need to be a prophet to see what's ahead. Your path leads to war. You know that. So war is coming. What will you do, when you feel its breath upon your neck?
  • Jamis: A good hunter always climbs the highest dune before his hunt. He needs to see as far as he can see. You need to see.
  • Alia Atredes: Oh, brother. My dearest brother. You are not prepared for what is to come. You'll now learn the truth about our family. And it will hurt you to the core. Paul. Don't worry. I'm with you. I love you.


Rabban's Servant: We're losing too many men to the desert.
Glossu Rabban: Rats.
Rabban's Servant: I beg your pardon?
Glossu Rabban: We're losing men... to rats.

Lady Jessica: Your father didn't believe in revenge.
Paul: Yeah, well, I do.

Shishakli: The further north you go, the more likely it is you die.
Paul: [in Chakobsa] Then I'll die... maybe you will, too. But the others will keep going. And they won't stop until the Fremen are free.

Chani: Where you're from, does water really fall from the sky?
Paul: Oh, hm, yes. Sometimes, it rains for weeks on Caladan. Where you see sand here, imagine water. Our castle stands on cliffs high above the sea. If you dive in, you can't reach the bottom.
Chani: You dive in?
Paul: Yes, it's called swimming.
Chani: [laughs] I don't-- I don't believe you, Usul.

Feyd-Rautha Harkonnen: The slave wasn't drugged. You tried to kill me?
Baron Vladimir Harkonnen: This morning, you were a playboy, feared and envied. But tonight, you're a hero! My gift to you.
Feyd-Rautha Harkonnen: [seething] I ought to drown you in that tub!
Baron Vladimir Harkonnen: [chuckles] Don't be hasty. I have another gift for you, a bigger one. Arrakis.
Feyd-Rautha Harkonnen: [confused] What about Rabban?
Baron Vladimir Harkonnen: He has failed to protect spice production. Rabban will be reassigned. Tame Arrakis, Feyd. Free the spice, I'll make you Emperor.
Feyd-Rautha Harkonnen: Emperor? How?
Baron Vladimir Harkonnen: The Emperor helped me destroy the Atreides, and lent his own army to the cause. A serious crime. If it came to light, the Great Houses would rise against him. Then, who will sit on the throne? Feyd-Rautha Harkonnen!

Jessica: Do you not think I also feel the weight of the prophecy?
Paul: It's not a prophecy. It's a story that you keep telling, but it's not their story. It's yours. They deserve to be led by one of their own. What your people did to this world is heartbreaking.
Jessica: We gave them something to hope for.
Paul: That's not hope!

Gurney: "Muad'Dib, the Prophet". Why is that a bad thing? Use it.
Paul: It's not that simple.
Gurney: You have the power to avenge your father, and you're afraid to use it?
Paul: Spice opened my mind, Gurney. I can forsee things. If I go South, all my visions lead to horror. Billions of corpses scattered across the galaxy, all dying because of me.
Gurney: Because you lose control?
Paul: Because I gain it.

Paul: He who can destroy a thing has the real control of it.
Chani: So you can control it, but not us?

Stilgar: We need you, we need the Lisan al-Gaib to lead our people.
Paul: You know what I think of all that, Stilgar.
Stilgar: I don't care what you believe, I believe!

Elder: Only tribe leaders can speak. If you wish to share your voice, you must take his place by defeating him and returning his water to the well.
Paul: You think I'm stupid enough to deprive myself of the best of us? [in Chakobsa] Do you smash a knife before battle?
Stilgar: [English] Take my life, Usul. It is the only way.
Paul: I'm pointing the way!
Jessica: Slow down.
Paul: [in Chakobsa] There is no one in this room who can stand against me!

Princess Irulan Corrino: Did you counsel my father to exterminate the Atredes?
Reverend Mother Mohiam: Of course I did. Why else would it have happened?

Jessica: I came to wish you best of luck.
Chani: I'd wish you the same. But it seems you've won your battle.

Reverend Mother Mohiam: Consider what you are about to do, Paul Atreides—
Paul: [using The Voice] SILENCE!
Reverend Mother Mohiam: [taken aback at Paul's outburst] Abomination.

Emperor Shaddam IV: As a servant of the Imperium, you will bow at my feet.
Paul: Your feet?! You'll be lucky to keep your head.

Paul: May thy knife chip and shatter.
Feyd-Rautha Harkonnen: May thy knife chip and shatter.

Jessica: You should've believed. You chose the wrong side.
Reverend Mother Mohiam: "Side"? You of all people should know, there are no sides. Reverend Mother...

Gurney: My Lord. The Great Houses have answered. They refuse to honor your ascendancy.
Stilgar: We await your orders, Lisan al-Gaib.
Paul: Lead them to paradise.

Alia: What is happening, mother?
Jessica: Your brother attacks the Great Houses. The Holy War begins.
