Johnny Ola: Hyman Roth always makes money for his partners. One by one, our old friends are gone. Death, natural or not, prison, deported. Hyman Roth is the only one left, because he always made money for his partners.


Frank Pentangeli: I don't - I never knew no godfather. I got my own family, senator.

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.

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.

Tom Hagen: Why do you hurt me, Michael? I've always been loyal to you.

Al Neri: Our friend and associate Hyman Roth is in the news. The High Court of Israel turned down his request to live there as a returning Jew. He landed in Buenos Aires last night offering a "gift" of a million dollars if they'd let him stay. They said no. His passport's been invalidated, except for a return trip to the States.
Tom Hagen: He's going to try Panama next.
Michael: Panama won't take him. Not for a million, not for ten million.

Vito Corleone: I'll make him an offer he can't refuse.

Signora Andolini: [to Don Ciccio, who is threatening to kill young Vito] But Vito is only nine. And dumb-witted. The child cannot harm you.

I didn't know it was gonna be a hit, Mike. I swear to God I didn't know it was going to be a hit. Johnny Ola bumped into me in Beverly Hills, and he said that he wanted to talk -- he said that you and -- and -- Roth were in on a -- a -- big deal together. And that there was something in it for me if I'd help 'em out. He said that -- he said that -- you were bein' tough on the negotiations. But if they could get a little help -- and close the deal fast -- it'd be good for the family.

Santino: [in a flashback] Whatcha go to college for? To get stupid?

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.

Good health is the most important thing. More than success, more than money, more than power.

I want you all to enjoy your cake, so...enjoy.

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!

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.
