[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

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.

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

Harlan DeGroat: You've been saying that but you've been fuckin' jerkin' me off. Give me my fucking money, you cunt.

Working for a living? I gave my life for this country and what's it done for me? Huh? What's it done for me?

Rodney Baze Jr.
