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

[In the hospital after Sollozzo tries to kill him] 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.

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?

Connie: [about Carlo] It was my fault!...Sonny, please it was my fault, Sonny it was my fault. I hit him. I started a fight with him. Please let me be. I hit him so he hit me...Sonny, please don't do anything. Please don't do anything.
Sonny: OK. What's the matter with you? What am I gonna do? I'm gonna make that baby an orphan before he's born or what? Huh? Hmmm? All right?

[to Tom Hagen]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.

Don Corleone: [whispers] Where's Michael? [loudly] Where's Michael?
Tom Hagen: It was Michael who killed Sollozzo, but he's safe and we're starting to work to bring him back.

Jack Woltz: Why didn't you say you worked for Corleone, Tom? I thought you were just some cheap, two-bit hustler Johnny was running in trying to bluff me.
Tom Hagen: I don't like to use his name unless it's really necessary.

[to Tom Hagen] I never thought you a bad consigliere. I thought Santino was a bad don, rest in peace.

[to Luca Brasi] 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.

You break your father's heart!

[to Clemenza, about Paulie] I want you to take care of that son of a bitch 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?

Kay Adams: Say you love me, Michael.

Carlo: [to Connie] Yeah, yeah, come on now, kill me. Be a murderer like your father. Come on, all you Corleones are murderers anyway.
