It's kind of a cheat, with a mid-rear v6.

But it makes stock Prii look lifted. Air-bag a stock Prius and boat tail it. An air-tight fit on the back with wheelie bars.

So? You think I don't know that?

I read Dune when it came out in the 1960s. The line reminds me of Christopher Walken's dancing.

I'd been thinking about changing the tagline. What do you think of this one?

'"We must walk without rhythm, " Paul said and he called up memory of men
walking the sand . . . both prescient memory and real memory.'

That's the direct quote from Frank Herbert's Dune. You're thinking of the 1984 film adaptation, which features the line, "Remember, walk without rhythm and we won't attract the worm." (emphasis added)

The line from Weapon of Choice is, "Walk without rhythm, [and] it won't attract the worm."

It isn't a direct quote, but an allusion. Freebeard's attribution stands.
