I could comment on that...

...but Omphalos won't let me.

Well, I swear Mohiam farts during the gom jabbar/pain-in-the-box scene, but no, this isn't the fart one you're probably thinking of. ;) It's the longer, redubbed version.
I have heard of only one mistake that doesn’t have an explanation for a careful reader...with an open mind. (And, no, I’m not going to tell you what it is!) —KJA

I don't like every writer's style; for instance, I have never been able to get through Ursula LeGuin, China Mieville, or Iain Banks, all of whom are critical darlings. —KJA

I...had written a bunch of Star Wars and X-Files books...that proved not just that I'm a hack, but that I could write in somebody else's universe... —KJA

My merit is not to be totally ineffectual but to have wanted to be.

Sad thing is that this isn't far from what happened in the actual movie :P

No problem :D my pleasure to share this little gem :)

Yeah, we've seen these before. They're good for a laugh. I like the delivery of the dialog in the Re-Edition

*delivered like James Brown*
"Usul, we have wormsign the likes of which even gaaawwwd has never seen!"

The Jetson's-car sound of the Baron made me weep, as did Piter's "DAY-UM"

But my favorite moment is Shaddam's "ugh" when Feyd is killed. In the movie he's silent, but I can't help but add it whenever I watch Dune now.

Yeah. I hear it more as a "eeew-gh", though. :P

I actually find that funnier than the Fremen comment about the tattoo. :)

I liked:

The strength at the base of the penis.

Or "dont drink the water, it tastes like ass and dirt".
