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.
[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.
[speaking to Tom Hagen after Sonny is killed] I want no inquiries made. I want no acts of vengeance. I want you to arrange a meeting, with the heads of the Five Families. This war stops now.
 

Al Pacino
Al Pacino (Michael Corleone)
[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.
I've always believed that being kind to your fellow man is profitable, in every sense. Both personally and bottom line.
Just lie here, Pop. I'll take care of you now. I'm with you now. I'm with you.
 

James Caan
James Caan (Santino 'Sonny' Corleone)
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?
You break your father's heart!
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.
 

Robert Duvall
Robert Duvall (Tom Hagen)
No Sicilian can refuse a request on his daughter's wedding day.
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.
 

Richard S. Castellano
Richard S. Castellano (Peter Clemenza)
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..."
Oh Paulie... You won't see him no more.
Leave the gun, take the cannoli.
 

Dialogues from "The Godfather"

Virgil 'The Turk' Sollozzo (Al Lettieri)
→ Your boss is dead. I know you're not in the muscle-end of the family, Tom, so I don't want you to be scared. I want you to help the Corleones, and I want you to help me. Yeah, we got him outside his office just about an hour after we picked you up. Drink it. So now it's up to you to make the peace between me and Sonny. Sonny was hot for my deal, wasn't he? And you knew it was the right thing to do.

Tom Hagen (Robert Duvall)
→ Sonny'll come after you with everything's he got.

Virgil 'The Turk' Sollozzo
→ That'll be his first reaction, sure. That's why you gotta talk some sense into him. The Tattaglia family is behind me with all their people. The other New York Families will go along with anything that will prevent a full-scale war. Let's face it, Tom, and all due respect, the Don, rest in peace, was -- slippin'. Ten years ago, could I have gotten to him? Well now, he's dead. He's dead, Tom, and nothing can bring him back. So you gotta talk to Sonny, you gotta talk to the caporegimes, that Tessio and that Fat Clemenza. It's good business, Tom.

Tom Hagen
→ I'll try, but even Sonny won't be able to call Luca Brasi off.

Virgil 'The Turk' Sollozzo
→ Yeah, well, let me worry about Luca. You just talk to Sonny and the other two kids.

Tom Hagen
→ I'll try my best.

Virgil 'The Turk' Sollozzo
→ Good. Now, you can go. I don't like violence, Tom. I'm a business man. Blood is a big expense.

Michael Corleone (Al Pacino)
[while eating dinner with Sollozzo and McCluskey] What I want - what's most important to me - is that I have a guarantee: No more attempts on my father's life.

Virgil 'The Turk' Sollozzo (Al Lettieri)
→ What guarantees could I give you, Mike? I am the hunted one! I missed my chance. You think too much of me, kid - I'm not that clever. All I want is a truce.

Johnny Fontane (Al Martino)
→ A month ago, he bought the movie rights to this book. A best seller - and the main character, it's a guy just like me, I, uh, I wouldn't even have to act, just be myself. [tearing up] Oh, Godfather, I don't know what to do. I don't know what to do.

Don Vito Corleone (Marlon Brando)
[shouts] You can act like a man!

[Don Corleone slaps Johnny]

Don Vito Corleone
→ What's the matter with you? Is this how you turned out? A Hollywood finocchio that cries like a woman.

[Don Corleone imitates him sobbing]

Don Vito Corleone
→ What can I do? What can I do? What is that nonsense. Ridiculous. You spend time with your family?

Johnny Fontane
→ Sure I do.

Don Vito Corleone
→ Good. 'Cause a man who doesn't spend time with his family can never be a real man. Come here...You look terrible. I want you to eat. I want you to rest a while. And in a month from now, this Hollywood bigshot's gonna give you what you want.

Johnny Fontane
→ It's too late, they start shooting in a week.

Don Vito Corleone
→ I'm going to make him an offer he can't refuse. Now, you just go outside and enjoy yourself, and uh, forget about all this nonsense. I want you, I want you to leave it all to me.
