There's one line from a filmed but deleted scene in Star Trek 2009 where
{pu'jIn} is said twice:
{buqmeylIjDaq DIvI' De' pu'jInmey... [cut]... 'ach pu'jInmeylIj bIHbe'.}

The "[cut]" indicates a lacuna where the camera angle changed. The deleted
scene was apparently spliced from two different takes of the line.
