[briefing the reporters] The Pope - the Holy Father himself - has this very day blessed Michael Corleone; and you think you know better than the Pope?

Dominic Abbandando

[wanting to go on his own being an opera singer instead of a lawyer] I will always be your son, but I will never have anything to do with your business.

Anthony Vito Corleone

Tom Hagen: You know how they're going to come at you?
Michael: They want to arrange a meeting between me and Barzini. On Tessio's ground. Where I'll be safe.

Look! I'd love to smack Joey Zasa and then whack the bag, Okay? But it's impossible. He's always mingling with people. In front of TV cameras, in his own neighborhood, it's impossible.

Al Neri

Goodbye my old friend. You could have lived a little longer, I could be closer to my dream. You were so loved, Don Tommasino. Why was I so feared, and you so loved? What was it? I was no less honorable. I wanted to do good. What betrayed me? My mind? My heart? Why do I condemn myself so? I swear, on the lives of my children

Michael Corleone

Power wears out those who do not have it.

Calo

Just when I thought I was out... they pull me back in.

Michael Corleone

[Giving instructions in a voiceover] Neri; go to Rome. Light a candle for the archbishop.

Vincent Mancini

Don Altobello: [regarding Vincent] This is the hero who put Joey Zasa in his grave. If we'd known of his existence, we would never have backed Joey.
Don Lucchesi: No one wants another Joe.

Times have changed. It's not like the Old Days, when we can do anything we want. A refusal is not the act of a friend. If Don Corleone had all the judges, and the politicians in New York, then he must share them, or let us others use them. He must let us draw the water from the well. Certainly he can present a bill for such services; after all... we are not Communists.

Emilio Barzini

You talk about vengeance. Is vengeance going to bring your son back to you? Or my boy to me?

Don Corleone

I'm an attorney for the Corleone family. These men are private detectives hired to protect Vito Corleone. They are licensed to carry firearms. If you interfere you'll have to appear before a judge in the morning and show just cause.
