I don’t feel I have to wipe everybody out, Tom. Just my enemies. I’m gonna make him an offer he can’t refuse. Only don’t tell me you’re innocent. Because it insults my intelligence and makes me very angry. I don’t trust a doctor who can hardly speak English. Te salut, Don Corleone.
I’m your older brother, Mike, and I was stepped over! Mr Corleone is Johnny Fontane’s godfather. Now Italians regard that as a very close, a very sacred religious relationship. You talk about vengeance. Is vengeance going to bring your son back to you? Or my boy to me? If anything in this life is certain, if history has taught us anything, it is that you can kill anyone. Fredo, you’re my older brother, and I love you. But don’t ever take sides with anyone against the Family again. Ever.
Don Corleone, I am honored and grateful that you have invited me to your home on the wedding day of your daughter. And may their first child be a masculine child. I know it was you, Fredo. You broke my heart. You broke my heart! I am sorry. What happened to your father was business. I have much respect for your father. But your father, his thinking is old-fashioned. You must understand why I had to do that. Now let’s work through where we go from here. Leave the gun. Take the cannoli. When they come… they come at what you love.
The hotel, the casino. The Corleone Family wants to buy you out. What’s wrong with being a lawyer? Sonny, please don’t do anything. Please don’t do anything. Michael, you never told me you knew Johnny Fontane! We’re both part of the same hypocrisy, senator, but never think it applies to my family.
I see you took the name of the town. What was your father’s name? Don’t ever give an order like that again. Not while I’m alive. I don’t like violence, Tom. I’m a businessman; blood is a big expense. Never let anyone know what you are thinking. I want your answer and the money by noon tomorrow. And one more thing. Don’t you contact me again, ever. From now on, you deal with Turnbull.
Why do you hurt me, Michael? I’ve always been loyal to you. Very well. You want to do business with me. I will do business with you. In Sicily, women are more dangerous than shotguns. 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 toilet with just his dick in his hands, alright?
My father taught me many things here – he taught me in this room. He taught me: keep your friends close, but your enemies closer. It’s not personal. It’s business. You can act like a man! What’s the matter with you, huh? What am I going to do? Am I going to make that baby an orphan before he’s born? Is that why you slapped my brother around in public?
I have a sentimental weakness for my children and I spoil them, as you can see. They talk when they should listen. Don’t you know that I would use all of my power to prevent something like that from happening? Just when I thought I was out… they pull me back in. That’s my family Kay, that’s not me.
