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.
[Talking to Johnny Fontane about Jack Woltz] I'm going to make him an offer he can't refuse.
Each man has his own destiny.
[to Michael] Barzini will move against you first. He'll set up a meeting with someone that you absolutely trust, guaranteeing your safety. And at that meeting, you'll be assassinated...It's an old habit. I spend my life trying not to be careless. Women and children can afford to be careless, but not men...It could be anyone...I never wanted this for you. I work my whole life, I don't apologize; to take care of my family, and I refused to be a fool, dancing on the string held by all those bigshots. I don't apologize; that's my life, but I thought that, that when it was your time, that you would be the one to hold the strings: Senator Corleone; Governor Corleone. Well, it wasn't enough time, Michael. It wasn't enough time...Now listen, whoever comes to you with this Barzini meeting, he's the traitor. Don't forget that.
Never hate your enemies. It clouds your judgement.
[to Carlo Rizzi] You have to answer for Santino.
Just lie here, Pop. I'll take care of you now. I'm with you now. I'm with you.
[to Carlo Rizzi, after beating him up] You touch my sister again, I'll kill you.
[On the phone to his sister] Wait there, no, no, Wait there! [Hangs up] That son of a bitch. Son of a bitch!
[to Clemenza, about Paulie] I want you to take care of that son of a bitch right away. Paulie sold out the old man, that stronz. I don't want to see him again. Make that first thing on your list, understand?
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.
Leave the gun, take the cannoli.
It's alright... Sollozzo knows he's a civilian.
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..."
Kay Adams (Diane Keaton)
→ [asking about Carlo's murder] Michael, is it true?
Michael Corleone (Al Pacino)
→ Don't ask me about my business, Kay.
→ Is it true?
→ Don't ask me about my business...
→ [slamming his hand on the desk] Enough! All right. This one time, this one time I'll let you ask me about my affairs.
→ Is it true? Is it?
→ [sighing relief] I guess we both need a drink, huh?
