- Tossing a guy into an oven...makes Paul's Hitler self-comparison a even funnier.
- Stilgar "Hitler? Twenty million; not bad. Was he one of the Sarduakar?"
- I'm not sure if ''Studio Gainax Presents Frank Herbert's Dune" would be a good thing or a bad thing.

So, suddenly, we've got a couple of people running through a dimly lit cave, being chased by something that doesn't sound human. Leto and Ghanima, and it's too early for this scene. But wait—those weren't the real twins, and this was only a test. This is Salusa Secundus, the prison planet the old emperor's house was exiled to, and his descendant, Princess Wensicia, is just training some tigers to go after the real twins. On actual people—clearly these are villains. Since Dune Messiah, Wensicia has lost her Romulan hairstyle and grown even more intent on reconquering the galaxy for the Corrinos. Back on Arrakis, Leto watches a sandworm passing by through a palace window—it is in an enclosure surrounded by a moat of computer-animated water. Shh, don't say out loud that it's not real water. If it hears, it'll break through the moat and eat everyone! And Leto appears to have gotten a haircut—so much for looking like Harry Potter. Wait—this isn't Leto at all, just someone who looks annoyingly like him: Wensicia's child, now a teenager. And we're still on Salusa Secundus. Apologies, but the settings just look too much alike. The kid doesn't share the same desire to retake the galaxy as his mother, believing her hunger for power to be unwise. Or something. He's a terrible actor—reminds me of myself when I used to try out for plays in high school. Now back on Arrakis, Alia tells her niece and nephews to behave around their grandmother, convinced that Jessica is coming as a threat to them for being pre-born. And, first ridiculous costume of the story: the collar on Ghanima's formal wear should not resist gravity that way. The twins wonder if Alia is losing her mind; this paranoia isn't like her. Waiting for Jessica's ship to land, Irulan finally, finally gets some of the sympathy she deserves from Ghanima when she reveals her nervousness about meeting Jessica, who had no respect for her. It made more sense in the books, where Irulan wasn't involved in anything important, but in this film series, her role is greatly changed and full of Rousseau was Right, so it seemed unfair that she was scorned the same way as she was in the books in this version. LOL, Duncan still has that ridiculous armor from all the way back in Dune Messiah. Jessica's ship finally lands, and all of the onlookers bow. Or hide how hard they're trying not to laugh. It's really clear that Jessica hasn't been here in a while—no matter what one's galactic or religious status is, wearing anything with a humongous fur collar to a desert planet is a big no-no. Especially if paired with a close-fitting hat and long sleeves. She and her old friend Stilgar greet each other, and her and Alia, who can't hold back just a little bit of joy at seeing her grandmother again. Jessica delivers some sort of Fremen speech and turns to go inside, but then someone shouts "Mother!" and she turns around. It's some mysterious cloaked hobo, who meant "mother" as in "Reverend Mother", but even though I haven't got far enough in the book to know for sure, I'm going to guess that this guy is definitely Paul because that was the most un-subtle foreshadowing ever.
