Michael: I've always taken care of you, Fredo.
Fredo Corleone: Taken care of me? You're my kid brother and you take care of me? Did you ever think about that? Hah? Did you ever once that about that?

He was stupid. I was lucky. I will visit him soon.

Fredo, you're nothing to me now. You're not a brother, you're not a friend. I don't want to know you or what you do. I don't want to see you at the hotels, I don't want you near my house. When you see our mother, I want to know a day in advance, so I won't be there. You understand?

He's has been dying from the same heart attack for the last twenty years.

If anything in this life is certain, if history has taught us anything, it is that you can kill anyone.

I'll change; I'll change. I've learned that I have the strength to change.

There are many things my father taught me here in this room. He taught me

I know it was you, Fredo. You broke my heart. You broke my heart!

I don't feel I have to wipe everybody out, Tom. Just my enemies.

Kay Adams: Michael, is it true? Did you have Carlo murdered?
Michael: Don't ask me about my business, Kay.

Don Corleone: I never wanted this for you. I work my whole life - I don't apologize - to take care of my family, and I refused to be a fool, dancing on the string held by all those bigshots. I don't apologize - that's my life - but I thought that, that when it was your time, that you would be the one to hold the string. Senator Corleone; Governor Corleone. Well, it wasn't enough time, Michael. It wasn't enough time.
Michael: We'll get there, pop. We'll get there.

It's not personal, Sonny. It's strictly business.
