Note from the Webmaster: I messed up with the database once, and some quotes are now showing under the wrong film :-/... I am trying to fix this, but you can always report such mistakes.
[to Michael Corleone] Revenge is a dish that tastes best when it is cold.
[to Bonasera] I want you to use all your powers and all your skills. I don't want his mother to see him this way. [sobbing] Look how they massacred my boy.
[to Vitelli, about Apollonia] I apologize if I offended you. I am a stranger in this country. And I meant no disrespect to you, or your daughter. I am an American, hiding in Sicily. My name is Michael Corleone. There are people who'd pay a lot of money for that information. But then your daughter would lose a father instead of gaining a husband. I want to meet your daughter with your permission and under the supervision of your family with all respect.
Just lie here, Pop. I'll take care of you now. I'm with you now. I'm with you.
Don't ask me about my business, Kay.
[last words] Son of a bitch!
Tom-anuch! Hey, a hundred button men on the street twenty-four hours a day. That Turk shows one hair on his ass and he's dead.
Hey, listen, I want somebody good, and I mean very good, to plant that gun. I don't want my brother coming out of that bathroom with just his dick in his hands, alright?
I found out about this Captain McCluskey who broke Mike's jaw...Now he's definitely on Sollozzo's payroll, and for big money. McCluskey has agreed to be the Turk's bodyguard. What you have to understand, Sonny, is that while Sollozzo is being guarded like this, he is invulnerable. Now nobody has ever gunned down a New York police captain -- never. It would be disastrous. All the Five Families would come after you, Sonny. The Corleone Family would be outcasts! Even the old man's political protection would run for cover! So do me a favor -- take this into consideration.
If we lose the old man, we lose our political contacts and half our strength. The other New York families might wind up supporting Sollozzo just to avoid a long, destructive war. This is almost 1946. Nobody wants bloodshed anymore. If your father dies, you make the deal, Sonny.
[to Sonny, about Don Vito] He's as much a father to me as you or Mike.
Leave the gun, take the cannoli.
Oh Paulie... You won't see him no more.
Mikey, why don't you tell that nice girl you love her? (Mocking) "I love you with all-a my heart, if I don't see-a you again soon, I'm-a gonna die..."
Michael Corleone (Al Pacino)
→ I'm working for my father now. He's been sick, very sick.
Kay Adams (Diane Keaton)
→ But you're not like him, Michael. I thought you weren't going to become a man like your father. That's what you told me.
→ My father's no different than any other powerful man, [Kay laughs] any man who's responsible for other people. Like a senator or a president.
→ You know how naive you sound?
→ Senators and presidents don't have men killed.
→ Oh, who's being naive, Kay? Kay, my father's way of doing things is over, it's finished. Even he knows that. I mean in five years, the Corleone Family is going to be completely legitimate. Trust me. That's all I can tell you about my business.
Michael Corleone (Al Pacino)
→ My credit good enough to buy you out?
Moe Greene (Alex Rocco)
→ Buy me out?
[Fredo laughs nervously]
→ The casino, the hotel. The Corleone Family wants to buy you out.
→ The Corleone Family wants to buy me out? No, I buy you out, you don't buy me out.
→ Your casino loses money, maybe we can do better.
→ You think I'm skimmin' off the top, Mike?
→ You're unlucky.
→ You goddamn guineas really make me laugh. I do you a favor and take Freddie in when you're having a bad time, and then you try to push me out!
→ Wait a minute, you took Freddie in because the Corleone Family bankrolled your casino, because the Molinari Family on the Coast guaranteed his safety. Now we're talking business, let's talk business.
→ Yeah, let's talk business, Mike. First of all, you're all done. The Corleone Family don't even have that kind of muscle anymore. The Godfather's sick, right? You're getting chased out of New York by Barzini and the other Families. What do you think is going on here? You think you can come to my hotel and take over? I talked to Barzini, I can make a deal with him, and still keep my hotel!
→ Is that why you slapped my brother around in public?
Fredo Corleone (John Cazale)
→ Aw now that, that was nothin', Mike. Now, Now uh Moe didn't mean nothin' by that. Sure he flies off the handle once in a while, but Moe and me, we're good friends, right Moe? Huh?
→ I gotta business to run. I gotta kick asses sometimes to make it run right. We had a little argument, Freddy and I, so I had to straighten him out.
→ You straightened my brother out?
→ He was banging cocktail waitresses two at a time! Players couldn't get a drink at the table! What's wrong with you?
→ I leave for New York tomorrow, think about a price.
→ Sonofabitch, Do you know who I am? I'm Moe Greene! I made my bones when you were going out with cheerleaders!
→ Wait a minute, Moe, Moe, I got an idea. Tom, you're the Consiglieri and you can talk to the Don, you can explain...
Tom Hagen (Robert Duvall)
→ Just a minute now, the Don is semi-retired and Mike is in charge of the Family business now. If you have anything to say, say it to Michael.
[Moe Greene leaves]
→ Mike! You don't come to Las Vegas and talk to a man like Moe Greene like that!
→ Fredo, you're my older brother, and I love you. But don't ever take sides with anyone against the Family again. Ever.
