It Begins.  (taglines)
My road leads into the desert. I can see it. If you'll have us, we will come.

Paul AtreidesEdit

  • This is an extermination. They're picking my family off one by one.
  • [to Stilgar] The Emperor sent us to this place. And my father came, not for spice, not for the riches, but for the strength of your people. My road leads into the desert. I can see it. If you'll have us, we will come.

Lady Jessica AtreidesEdit

  • 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 it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

Gaius Helen MohiamEdit

  • One day, a legend will be born. All of civilization depends on it.
  • [to Paul] Like sifting sand through a screen, we sift people. If you had been unable to control your impulses, like an animal, we could not let you live. You inherit too much power.
  • [to Paul] An animal caught in a trap will gnaw off its own leg to escape. What will you do?
  • [to Paul] Goodbye, young human. I hope you live.


  • My planet Arrakis is so beautiful when the sun is low. Rolling over the sands, you can see the spice in the air. At nightfall the spice harvesters land. The outsiders race against time to avoid the heat of the day. They ravage our lands in front of our eyes. Their cruelty to my people is all I've known. What's to become of our world, Paul?
  • This is only the beginning.

Duncan IdahoEdit

  • Dreams make good stories, but everything important happens when we're awake.
  • Let's fight like demons.

Baron Vladimir HarkonnenEdit

  • This is MY dune. Kill them all.
  • For hundreds of years, we've traded blood for blood. But no more. Your son is dead. Your concubine is dead. Tonight the House of Atreides falls. And your bloodline ends forever.


  • Introductory placard: Dreams are messages from the deep.
  • Jamis: The mystery of life isn't a problem to solve, but a reality to experience. A process that cannot be understood by stopping it. We must move with the flow of the process. We must join it. We must flow with it.
  • Shadout Mapes: When you have lived with prophecy for so long, the moment of revelation is a shock.


[Paul is to practice fencing with Gurney]
Paul Atreides: I guess I'm not in the mood today.
Gurney Halleck: Mood? What's mood to do with it? You fight when the necessity arises, no matter the mood. Now fight!
[the two begin fighting, and Paul eventually puts his blade to Gurney's throat]
Gurney Halleck: I see you found the mood.

Paul Atreides: [while having a vision] That's the future. It's coming. Holy war spreading across the universe like unquenchable fire.
Lady Jessica Atreides: Paul, you're scared. I can see it. Tell me, please, what do you fear?
Paul Atreides: Somebody help me, please.
Lady Jessica Atreides: Paul.
Paul Atreides: It's coming. I see a holy war spreading across the universe like unquenchable fire. A warrior religion that waves the Atreides banner in my father's name.
Lady Jessica Atreides: Paul.
Paul Atreides: Fanatical legions worshipping at the shrine of my father's skull. A war in my name. Everyone shouting my name!

Paul Atreides: There's something happening to me. Something waking up in my mind. I can't control it.
Gaius Helen Mohiam: What did you see?
Paul Atreides: There's a crusade coming.

Gaius Helen Mohiam: The test is simple. Remove your hand from the box, and you die.
Paul Atreides: What's in the box?
Gaius Helen Mohiam: Pain.

Gaius Helen Mohiam: You've proven you can rule yourself. Now you must learn to rule others, something none of your ancestors learnt.
Paul Atreides: My father rules an entire planet.
Gaius Helen Mohiam: He's losing it.
Paul Atreides: He's getting a richer one.
Gaius Helen Mohiam: He'll lose that one too.

Paul Atreides: Dad, what if I'm not the future of House Atreides?
Duke Leto Atreides: Your grandfather said "A great man doesn't seek to lead; he is called to it — and he answers." And if your answer is no, you'd still be the only thing I ever needed you to be: my son.

Beast Rabban Harkonnen: How could the Emperor take EVERYTHING we have built, and give it to that Duke?
Baron Vladimir Harkonnen: When is a gift not a gift?

Baron Vladimir Harkonnen: No Atreides shall live.
Piter De Vries: My lord, you gave your word to the witch, and she sees too much.
Baron Vladimir Harkonnen: I said I would not harm them and I shall not. But Arrakis is Arrakis and the desert takes the weak. This is my desert. My Arrakis. My Dune.

Herald of the Change: By the grace of Shaddam IV of House Corrino, ascendant to the Golden Lion Throne of Padishah Emperor of the Known Universe, I stand before you as Herald of the Change. We are witnessed by members of the Imperial Court, representatives of the Spacing Guild and a sister of the Bene Gesserit. The Emperor has spoken. "House Atreides shall immediately take control of Arrakis and serve as its steward." Do you accept?
Duke Leto Atreides: We are House Atreides. There is no call we do not answer. There is no faith that we betray. The Emperor asks us to bring peace to Arrakis. House Atreides accepts!

Duke Leto Atreides: Dr. Kynes. You saw it. With your own eyes. It's plain to see. Everything they've left us is in shambles. We've been set up to fail.
Liet Kynes: That carryall was just old. The desert isn't kind to equipment.
Duke Leto Atreides: You know what will happen, if I don't get spice production back on track.
Liet Kynes: I'm not here to take your part. Arrakis has seen men like you come and go. Take good care of your family. The desert's not kind to humans either.

Duke Leto Atreides: Jessica. You gave me a son, and from the moment he was born I never questioned you. I trusted you completely, even when you walked in shadows. Now I'm asking you this one thing. If anything happens, will you protect our son?
Lady Jessica Atreides: With... my life.
Duke Leto Atreides: I'm not asking his mother, I'm asking the Bene Gesserit. Will you protect Paul?
Lady Jessica Atreides: Why are you having these thoughts? Leto, this is not you.
Duke Leto Atreides: I thought we had more time.

Chani: [to Paul] I don't believe you're the Lisan al-Ghaib.. but I want you to die with honor. [offers Paul her knife] This crysknife was given to me by my great aunt. Its made from a tooth of Shai Hulud, the great sandworm. This will be a great honor for you to die holding it.
Jamis: [yelling angrily, ready to fight] Where is the outworlder?
Chani: Jamis is a good fighter. He won't let you suffer.


  • It Begins.
