Multiple Characters


Genco Abbandando: Vito, how do you like my little angel? Isn't she beautiful?
Vito Corleone: She's very beautiful. To you, she's beautiful. For me, there's only my wife and son.


Kay: It made me think of what you once told me: "In five years the Corleone family will be completely legitimate." That was seven years ago.
Michael: I know. I'm trying.

Kay: Oh, Michael. Michael, you are blind. It wasn't a miscarriage. It was an abortion. An abortion, Michael. Just like our marriage is an abortion. Something that's unholy and evil. I didn't want your son, Michael! I wouldn't bring another one of you sons into this world! It was an abortion, Michael! It was a son Michael! A son! And I had it killed because this must all end! I know now that it's over. I knew it then. There would be no way, Michael... no way you could ever forgive me, not with this Sicilian thing that's been going on for 2,000 years.
Michael: BITCH!
[Michael loses control. He slaps Kay across the face. She falls onto the couch]
Michael: You won't take my children!
Kay: I will.
Michael: You WON'T TAKE MY CHILDREN!
Kay: They're my children too.

Michael: [about the unrest in Cuba] We saw a strange thing on our way here. Some rebels were being arrested, and instead of being arrested, one of them pulled the pin on a grenade he had hidden in his jacket. He took himself and the captain of the command with him. Now, the soldiers are paid to fight; the rebels aren't.
Hyman Roth: What does that tell you?
Michael: They can win.

Michael: C'mon Frankie... my father did business with Hyman Roth, he respected Hyman Roth.
Frank Pentangeli: Your father did business with Hyman Roth, he respected Hyman Roth... but he never trusted Hyman Roth!

Michael: You heard what happened in my home?
Frank Pentangeli: Mike, I almost died myself. We was all so relieved.
Michael: In my home! [shouting] In my bedroom where my wife sleeps! Where my children come and play with their toys. In my home.

Senator Pat Geary: [as they're watching the performer at the sex club] Freddie, that thing can't be real.
Fredo Corleone: Sure it is. That's why they call him Superman.

Senator Pat Geary: I despise the dishonest way you pose yourself...yourself and your whole ****ing family.
Michael: Senator, we're both part of the same hypocrisy. But never think it applies to my family.

Senator Pat Geary: Mr. Cicci, would you care to amplify your answer?
Willie Cicci: Would I what?
Senator Pat Geary: Would you expand on your response? I'm interested to know, was there always a buffer involved?
Willie Cicci: A what?
Senator Pat Geary: A buffer. Someone in between you and your possible superiors who passed on to you the actual order to kill someone.
Willie Cicci: Oh yeah, a buffer. The family had a lot of buffers!

Tom Hagen: When a plot against the Emperor failed... the plotters were always given a chance to let their families keep their fortunes. Right?
Frank Pentangeli: Yeah, but only the rich guys, Tom. The little guys got knocked off and all their estates went to the Emperors. Unless they went home and killed themselves, then nothing happened. And the families... the families were taken care of.
Tom Hagen: That was a good break. A nice deal.
Frank Pentangeli: Yeah... They went home... and sat in a hot bath... opened up their veins... and bled to death... and sometimes they had a little party before they did it.

[discussing how to kill Hyman Roth]
Tom Hagen: It would be like trying to kill the President; there's no way we can get to him.
Michael Corleone: Tom, you know you surprise me. If anything in this life is certain - if history has taught us anything - it's that you can kill anyone.

[Vito returns years later to Sicily and meets Don Francesco Ciccio, the man who murdered Vito's family]
Don Francesco Ciccio: I see you took the name of this town. What was your father's name?
Vito Corleone: My father's name was Antonio Andolini.
Don Francesco Ciccio: You'll have to speak up. I can't hear you.
Vito Corleone: His name was Antonio Andolini... and this is for you.
[Vito opens up Ciccio's belly with a knife]

[Kay is threatening to take the children away] Don't you know that I would use all of my power to prevent something like that from happening?

[kisses Fredo] I know it was you Fredo. You broke my heart. You broke my heart!

[referring to Fredo] I don't want anything to happen to him while our mother is still alive.
