Quotes from the Movie The Godfather

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?

Santino Sonny Corleone

You touch my sister again... I'll kill you.

Santino Sonny Corleone

Wait there, no, no, WAIT THERE. THAT SONOFABITCH!!

Santino Sonny Corleone

No; no; no! No more! Not this time, Consigliere. No more meetin's, no more discussions, no more Sollozzo tricks. You give'em one message: I want Sollozzo -- if not, it's all-out war -- we go to the mattresses...

Santino Sonny Corleone

No Sicilian can refuse a request on his daughter's wedding day.

Tom Hagen

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.

Tom Hagen

He's as much a father to me as you or Mike.

Tom Hagen

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.

Tom Hagen

Leave the gun, take the cannolis.

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..."

Clemenza

Well think about it while you're drivin'...I wanna hit New York sometime this month. And watch out for the kids when you're backin' out.

Clemenza

We was all real proud of you, Mikey, for being a war hero and all. All of us... even your father.

Clemenza

I believe in America. America has made my fortune. And I raised my daughter in the American fashion. I gave her freedom, but I taught her never to dishonor her family. She found a boyfriend; not an Italian. She went to the movies with him; she stayed out late. I didn't protest. Two months ago, he took her for a drive, with another boyfriend. They made her drink whiskey. And then they tried to take advantage of her. She resisted. She kept her honor. So they beat her, like an animal. When I went to the hospital, her nose was a'broken. Her jaw was a'shattered, held together by wire. She couldn't even weep because of the pain. But I wept. Why did I weep? She was the light of my life, a beautiful girl. Now she will never be beautiful again. I went to the police, like a good American. These two boys were brought to trial. The judge sentenced them to three years in prison - suspended sentence. Suspended sentence! They went free that very day! I stood in the courtroom like a fool. And those two bastards, they smiled at me. Then I said to my wife, for justice, we must go to Don Corleone.

Bonasera

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 that their first child will be a masculine child. I pledge my ever-ending loyalty.

Luca Brasi

I, too, don't believe in drugs. For years I paid my people extra to stay away from that sort of stuff, but someone comes along saying, I've got powders where if you put up a three to four thousand dollar investment, you can make fifty thousand distributing, then there is no way to resist it. I want to keep it respectable. I don't want it near schools. I don't want it sold to children! That's an infamia. In my city, we'd keep the traffic to the Dark People, the Coloreds - they're animals anyway, so let them lose their souls.

Don Zaluchi

Sonny was hot for my deal, wasn't he? And you knew it was the right thing to do...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 and the other two kids; you gotta talk to the 'capo' regimes, that Tessio and Fat Clemenza. It's good business, Tom... let me worry about Luca. I don't like violence, Tom. I'm a business man. Blood is a big expense.

Virgil "the Turk" Solozzo

Virgil the Turk Solozzo

In Sicily, women are more dangerous than shotguns.

Calo

Godfather... Stay... Stay, so that death will flee from me... In fear of you...

Genco

Say you love me, Michael.

Kay Adams

Yeah, yeah, come on now, kill me. Be a murderer like your father. Come on, all you Corleones are murderers anyway.

Carlo
