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.


Marlon Brando
Marlon Brando (Don Vito Corleone)
[to Michael Corleone] Revenge is a dish that tastes best when it is cold.
Never get angry. Never make a threat. Reason with people.
[In the hospital after Sollozzo tries to kill him] There's a lot of trouble with this Sollozzo business. Its very unfortunate. I know the Tattaglia's are a little misfortunate...down on their heads. Well...that's life. Everyone's got their own circle of sorrow.

Al Pacino
Al Pacino (Michael Corleone)
I've always believed that being kind to your fellow man is profitable, in every sense. Both personally and bottom line.
[to Fredo] Fredo, you're my older brother, and I love you. But don't take sides with anyone against the family again. Ever.
[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.

James Caan
James Caan (Santino 'Sonny' Corleone)
Hey, get outta here, it's a private party, go on! What is it? Hey, it's my sister's wedding. Goddamn FBI don't respect nothin'.
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?
[to Carlo Rizzi, after beating him up] You touch my sister again, I'll kill you.

Robert Duvall
Robert Duvall (Tom Hagen)
[to Sonny, about Don Vito] He's as much a father to me as you or Mike.
No Sicilian can refuse a request on his daughter's wedding day.
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.

Richard S. Castellano
Richard S. Castellano (Peter Clemenza)
We was all real proud of you, Mikey, for being a war hero and all. All of us... even your father.
Oh Paulie... You won't see him no more.
It's alright... Sollozzo knows he's a civilian.
