Guess I should see it again. Did you know Alejandro Jodorowsky was supposed to make that? I can only imagine how insane that would be.

“It is by will alone I set my mind in motion.”

from the Mentat Mantra

Any my favorite variation of this:

“It is by caffeine alone I set my mind in motion.
It is by the beans of Java that thoughts acquire speed,
the hands acquire shakes, the shakes become a warning.
It is by caffeine alone I set my mind in motion.”

I just always got a kick out of how the one guy says “he shall be known as Paul Muad Dibuhh.” Just the way he adds to the end the little “uh” cracks me up. I often find myself saying that line and giggling a bit.

“Put the pick in there, Pete. And turn it ‘round, real neat.”

Also, @stevenb- “Shaaaai-Huuluuu-duh.” One of my favorite movies.

I would have loved to have seen the original 4.5-hour version Lynch was supposed to make. Coolness.

I will always remember the line
“Put your hand in the box”
“What’s in the box?”

My immediate response to that every time i hear it is “Screw you! You put your hand in the box.” I think Paul Atreides was made of tougher stuff than I.

This was the weirdest movie I ever saw. My husband loved it and watched it over and over, which means that I watched it over and over, too, whether I wanted to or not. I don’t remember much, except worms and spice and sand and thumpers to distract the worms. I do remember the box of pain, and a guy covered with boils that floated around in the air (???)
