Dune Movie Quotes

Famous Dune movie quotes and dialogs:

David Lynch wrote the screenplay and directed the movie. The screenplay was based on Frank Herbert's novel Dune.

Princess Irulan: The beginning is a very delicate time. Know then that it is the year 10191. The Known Universe is ruled by the Padishah 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 4,000 years, use the orange spice gas, which gives them the ability to fold space. That is, travel to any part of universe without moving. Oh, yes. I forgot 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.

Paul Atreides: Shield practice? 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 love play... not fighting.
Paul Atreides: I'm sorry Gurney.
Gurney Halleck: Not sorry enough.

Gurney Halleck: Now, guard yourself for true!
Paul Atreides: Is this what you seek?
Gurney Halleck: Good... the slow blade penetrates the shield... but, uh, look down. We'd have joined each other in death. You did seem finally to get the mood.
Paul Atreides: Would you really have drawn my blood?
Gurney Halleck: If you'd have fought one whit below your abilities, I'd have given you a good scar to remind you.

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.

Paul Atreides: 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.

Reverend Mother Gaius Helen Mohiam: I hold at your neck the gom jabbar. This one kills only animals.
Paul Atreides: Are you suggesting a duke's son is an animal?
Reverend Mother Gaius Helen Mohiam: Let us say I suggest you may be human.

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

Reverend Mother Gaius Helen Mohiam: Many men have tried.
Paul Atreides: They tried and failed?
Reverend Mother Gaius Helen Mohiam: They tried and died.

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, the stains become a warning.
It is by will alone I set my mind in motion.

Chani: Tell me of your home world, Usul.

Dr. Kynes: You've worn a stillsuit before.
Paul Atreides: No.
Dr. Kynes: Your suit is fitted desert fashion. Who told you how to do that?
Paul Atreides: No one. It seemed the proper way.


Dr. Kynes: He's more concerned over his men than the spice. I must admit, against all better judgment, I like this duke.

Paul Muad'Dib: 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 Arrakeen air.

Paul Muad'Dib: My name is a killing word. They are ready to fight.

Paul Muad'Dib: I'm dead to everyone unless I try...to become what I may be. Only the Water of Life will free what can save us.

Paul 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.

Paul Muad'Dib: I remember your gom jabbar. Now you remember mine. I can kill with a word.
