(Rehearsing a speech.)
(Delivering his rehearsed speech.)
(After Michael gets off the phone with Kay, clearly too embarrassed to tell her "I love you too.")
Sonny: "Damn FBI don't respect nothin'."
Fabrizio: "In Sicily, women are more dangerous than shotguns."
Sonny: "I want someone good, I mean very good, to plant that gun. I don't want my brother coming out of the bathroom with just his dick in his hands."
Michael Corleone: "My father is no different than any powerful man, any man with power, like a president or senator."
Jack Woltz: "Johnny Fontane never gets that movie! That part is perfect for him, it'll make him a big star, and I'm gonna run him out of the business, and let me tell you why. Johnny Fontane ruined one of Woltz International's most valuable proteges. For five years we had her under training. Singing lessons, acting lessons, dancing lessons. I spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on her, I was gonna make her a big star! And let me be even more frank, just to show you that I'm not a hard-hearted man, and that it's not all dollars and cents. She was beautiful! She was young! She was innocent! She was the greatest piece of ass I've ever had, and I've had 'em all over the world! And then Johnny Fontane comes along with his olive oil voice and guinea charm, and she runs off. She threw it all away just to make me look ridiculous! And a man in my position can't afford to be made to look ridiculous!"
Woltz: "Now you listen to me, you smooth talking son-of-a-bitch! Let me lay it on the line for you and your boss, whoever he is. Johnny Fontane willl never get that movie! I don't care how many dago guinea wop greaseball goombahs come out of the woodwork!"
Bonasera: "I believe in America. America has made my fortune."
Michael Corleone: "That's my family, Kay. It's not me."
Vito Corleone: "Do you spend time with your family? Good. Because a man that doesn't spend time with his family, can never be a real man."
Tom Hagen: "Now we have the unions, we have the gambling; and they're the best things to have. But narcotics is a thing of the future. And if we don't get a piece of that action, we risk everything we have. I mean not now, but, ah, ten years from now."
(Luca Brasi's bulletproof vest is delivered, wrapped around a fish.)
Tessio: "Can you get me off the hook, Tom? For old times' sake?"
Don Corleone: "Tattaglia's a pimp. He never could've outfoxed Santino. But I didn't know until this day that it was Barzini all along."
Don Vito Corleone: "I spent my whole life trying not to be careless. Women and children can be careless. But not men."
Tom Hagen: "You know how they're going to come at you?"
Vito Corleone: "You talk about vengeance. Is vengeance going to bring your son back to you? Or my boy to me?"
Vito Corleone: "I like to drink wine more than I used to. Anyway, I'm drinking more."
Vito Corleone: "I never thought you were a bad consiglieri, Tom. I thought Santino was a bad don, rest in peace."
Don Vito Corleone: "What have I ever done to make you treat me so disrespectfully? If you'd come to me in friendship, then this scum that ruined your daughter would be suffering this very day. And if by chance an honest man like yourself should make enemies, then they would become my enemies. And then they would fear you."
Vito Corleone: "I like to drink wine more than I used to."
Tom Hagen: "Mr. Corleone never asks a second favor once he's refused the first, understood?"
Clemenza: "Leave the gun. Take the cannoli."
(After being asked how he will arrange to buy a hotel from Moe Greene)
(Speaking with the father of the girl he plans to marry, and after telling him that he's in hiding from some gangsters)
Michael Corleone: "Fredo, you're my older brother and I love you, but don't ever take sides with anyone against the family again. Ever."
Sonny Corleone: "Tom, that was personal. This is business, and this man is taking it very very personal."
Michael Corleone: "It's not personal, Sonny. It's strictly business."
