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.

Tom Hagen

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

Vincent Mancini

I never thought you were a bad consiglieri, Tom. I thought Santino was a bad don, rest in peace.

Don Corleone

Every time I put my line in the water I said a Hail Mary, and every time I said a Hail Mary I caught a fish.

Fredo Corleone

This is the business we've chosen.

Hyman Roth

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

Those were the great old days,you know... And we was like the Roman Empire... The Corleone family was like the Roman Empire...

Frank Pentangeli

Whatcha go to college? To get stupid? You're really stupid!

Santino

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?

[during a meeting in Atlantic City] I say to all of you, I have been treated this day, with no respect. I've earned you all money. I've made you rich, and I asked for little. Good. You will not give, I'll take! As for Don, Corleone, well he makes it, very clear to me today, that he is my enemy. You must choose between us.

Joey Zasa

It seems in today's world the power to absolve debt is greater than the power of forgiveness.

Archbishop Gilday

[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?
