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


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

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?

[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.

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?

We don't discuss business at the table.

[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 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.

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

Kay Adams: Say you love me, Michael.

You break your father's heart!

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

[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?
