|description||This scene was cut from the theatrical release of Dune, but is included in the "Extended Edition"
168. EXT. FREMEN PLACE - DEEP DESERT - NIGHT
JAMIS (hate) He surprised me... It was an accident... I invoke the amtal rule!
JESSICA (inner voice) The man with death in his voice. He means to have single combat with Paul!
STILGAR (to Jessica) But Jamis... you force this fight.... These people have my countenance... if you should win I will cut you down.
PAUL (to Jamis) Jamis, I don't want to fight you.... Maybe if I explain....
JAMIS Explain? Explain death! I'm going to sheath my knife in your blood.
Jessica is pulled away tenderly by some of the Fremen. Chani comes up very close to Paul.
PAUL (quietly to Chani) No shields... I'm used to shield fighting...
CHANI (whispering) Take my crysknife... Jamis turns to the right with his knife after a parry... and watch for a knife switch.
Paul is suddenly moved forward and a ring of Fremen surrounds him. Jamis unsheathes his crysknife.
JAMIS May thy knife chip and shatter!
They begin circling each other.
PAUL (inner voice) Fear is the mind killer... the little death...
Jamis leaps. Paul easily evades him. Jamis attacks again and Paul stabs, but too slowly because of his shield training. Jamis turns and springs, trying to surprise Paul, but again Paul easily outmaneuvers him but is too slow on his attack. On the next attack, Paul cuts Jamis' hand and Jamis begins to show fear.
JESSICA (inner voice) He's never killed a man like this.
The two circle slowly. Suddenly Jamis can wait no longer. He leaps high, strikes down with his right hand but the knife has been expertly shifted to his left hand. Paul shifts beautifully and switches his knife hand. He plunges his knife deep into Jamis chest as Jamis comes down for him. Jamis continues down and crumbles dead on the ground.
Suddenly several of the Fremen rush forward and surround Jamis' body, cover it and whisk it away. Jessica studies Paul. She sees the excitement in him, in Chani and the others.
JESSICA (inner voice) He must not grow to enjoy such a victory.
She moves to Paul.
JESSICA (CONT'D) Well, how does it feel to be a killer?
Paul stands, stunned by his mother's words. He really just then realizes what he has done. Tears begin to fall from his eyes. The Fremen are amazed. They move to Paul and he at first backs away, but then lets them touch his eyes and face with their fingers.
FREMEN #2 (whispering) He gives water to the dead.
JESSICA (to everyone) He has never before killed a man in a blade.
They stare in disbelief.
STILGAR I respect you. You have strength... real strength... You shall be known as Usul, which is the strength of the base of the pillar. This is your secret name in our troop. But you must choose the name of manhood which we will call you openly.
PAUL (thinking) What do you call the little mouse which hops.
Several Fremen laugh.
STILGAR We call that one Muad'dib.
PAUL I am Atreides, It's not right that I give up the name my father gave me... Could I be know as Paul Muad'dib?
STILGAR You are Paul Muad'dib, and your mother shallbe a Sayyadina among us... We welcome you.
