The Godfather quotes
Does it feel like a boy?
Barzini's people chisle my territory and we do nothing about it. Pretty soon there won't be anyplace in Brooklyn that I can hang my hat.
Try and be patient.
I'm not asking for help, Mike, just take off the handcuffs.
We gotta protect ourselves. At least give me the chance to recruit some new men.
No. I don't want to give Barzini any excuse to start fighting.
Mike, you're wrong.
Don Corleone, you once said the day would come when me and Tessio could form our own families. Until today I would never think of such a thing but now I must ask your permission.
Well, Michael's head of the family now and if give his permission then you have my blessing.
After we make the move to Nevada you can break off from the Corleone Family and go off on your own. After we make the move to Nevada.
How long will that take?
Forgive me, Godfather, but with you gone me and Pete will come under Barzini's thumb sooner or later.
And I hate that go***** Barzini. In six months time there won't be nothin' left to build on.
Do you have faith in my judgement?
Do I have your loyalty?
Yes, always Godfather.
Then be a friend to Michael. Do as he says.
There are negotiations being made that are going to answer all of your questions and solve all of your problems. That's all I can tell you right now. Carlo, you grew up in Nevada. When we make our move there you're going to be my right hand man. Tom Hagen is no longer Consigliari. He's going to be our lawyer in Vegas. That's no reflection on Tom it's just the way I want it. Besides, if I ever help who's a better Consigliari than my father. That's it. (Everyone except Hagen leaves)
Mike, why am I out?
You're not a wartime Consigliari, Tom. Things could get rough with the move we're making.
Tom, I advised Michael. I never thought you were a bad Consigliari. I thought Santino was a bad Don, rest in peace. Michael has all my confidence as do you. But there are reasons why you must have nothing to do with what's going to happen.
Maybe I could help.
You're out, Tom.
Don't ask me about my business.
Oh, I want you to arrange to have a telephone man check all the calls going in and out of here because it could be anyone...
I did that already, Pop. I took care of that.
Oh, that's right. I forgot.
What's the matter? What's bothering you? I'll handle it. I told you I can handle it, I'll handle it.
I knew Santino was going to have to go through all this and Fredo... well, Fredo was... But I, 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 strings held by all of those big shots. That's my life, I don't apologize for that. But I always thought that when it was your time, that you would be the one to hold the strings. Senator Corleone, Governor Corleone, something.
Well, there wasn't enough time, Michael. There just wasn't enough time.
We'll get there, Pop. We'll get there. (the Don kisses his son on the forehead)
ni***** havin' a real good time up in Harlem...
I knew that was going to happen as soon as they tasted the big money.
Papa never talked about business in front of the kids.
Shut up, Connie.
Hey, don't you EVER tell her to shut up, you got that?
Santino, don't interfere. (Silence reigns around the table for a while)
Sonny, Tom, I'd like to talk to you after dinner. I think I can do a lot more for this family...
We don't discuss business at the table.
Michael, you never told me your family knew Johnny Fontane!
Oh sure, you want to meet him?
You know, my father helped Johnny in his career.
… Let's listen to this song.
(after listening to Johnny for a while) Please, Michael. Tell me.
Well, when Johnny was first starting out, he was signed to this contract with a big-band leader. And as his career got better and better he wanted to get out of it. Now, Johnny is my father's godson. My father went to see the bandleader, and offered him $10,000 to let Johnny go, but the bandleader said no. So the next day, my father went to see the bandleader again, only this time with Luca Brasi. Within an hour, the bandleader signed the release, with a certified check of $1,000.
How did he do that?
My father made him an offer he couldn't refuse.
What was that?
Luca Brasi held a gun to his head, and my father assured him that either his brains or his signature would be on the contract.
That's a true story. (pause) That's my family, Kay, it's not me.
Don Corleone, I am honored and grateful that you have invited me to your daughter... 's wedding... on the day of your daughter's wedding. And I hope their first child be a masculine child. I pledge my ever-ending loyalty.
