Paul Atreides-“What’s in the box?”
Reverend Mother Gaius Helen Mohiam-“Pain”
Dune TV mini-series
“You’ve heard of animals chewing off a leg to escape a trap? There’s an animal kind of trick. A human would remain in the trap, endure the pain, feigning death that he might kill the trapper and remove a threat to his kind.”
* Reverend Mother Gaius Helen Mohiam, testing Paul Atreides with the Gom Jabbar.
