I'm a little worried about this Sollozzo fellow...Go to the Tattaglias and make them think that you're not too happy with our family. And find out what you can.
Each man has his own destiny.
I want no inquiries made. I want no acts of vengeance. I want you to arrange a meeting, with the heads of the Five Families. This war stops now.
I want you to use all your powers and all your skills. I don't want his mother to see him this way. Look how they massacred my boy.
Tattaglia's a pimp. He never could've out-fought Santino. But I didn't know until this day that it was Barzini all along.
There's a lot of trouble with this Sollozzo business. Its very unfortunate. I know the Tattaglia's are a little misfortunate...down on their heads. Well...that's life. Everyone's got their own circle of sorrow.
I never thought you a bad consigliere. I thought Santino was a bad don, rest in peace.
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 get angry. Never make a threat. Reason with people.
I'm gonna make him an offer he can't refuse.
A lawyer with his briefcase can steal more than a hundred men with guns.
Some day, and that day may never come, I will call upon you to do a service for me. Until that day accept this justice as a gift on my daughter's wedding day.
Just lie here, Pop. I'll take care of you now. I'm with you now. I'm with you.
I apologize if I offended you. I am a stranger in this country. And I meant no disrespect to you, or your daughter. I am an American, hiding in Sicily. My name is Michael Corleone. There are people who'd pay a lot of money for that information. But then your daughter would lose a father instead of gaining a husband. I want to meet your daughter with your permission and under the supervision of your family with all respect.
The Corleone Family is thinking of giving up all its interests in the olive oil business and settling out here. Now Moe Greene will sell us his share of the casino and the hotel so it could be completely owned by the Family...I'll make him an offer he can't refuse.
Never hate your enemies. It clouds your judgement.
Don't ask me about my business, Kay.
Being kind to a fellow man is profitable, in every sense. Both personally and bottom line.
You have to answer for Santino.
You are still my brother.
Hey, get outta here, it's a private party, go on! What is it? Hey, it's my sister's wedding. Goddamn FBI, don't respect nothin.'
I want you to take care of that sonofabitch 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?
We don't discuss business at the table.
You break your father's heart!
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?
