[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.


[Sonny opens a package to find two fish wrapped in Luca's bulletproof vest.]
Sonny: What the hell is this?
Pete Clemenza: It's a Sicilian message. It means Luca Brasi sleeps with the fishes.

[Talking to Johnny Fontane about Jack Woltz] I'm going to make him an offer he can't refuse. Note: ranked #2 in the American Film Institute's list of the top 100 movie quotations in American cinema.

Don Corleone: Ah, Aspetto, Fredo. Going to buy some fruit.
Fredo: Okay, Pop.

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?

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?

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

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.

We don't discuss business at the table.

[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.

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

Kay Adams: Say you love me, Michael.

[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?

You break your father's heart!

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.
