This one time

Godfather ipsum dolor sit amet. I am sorry. What happened to your father was business. I have much respect for your father. But your father, his thinking is old-fashioned. You must understand why I had to do that. Now let’s work through where we go from here. It’s a Sicilian message. It means Luca Brasi sleeps with the fishes. You talk about vengeance. Is vengeance going to bring your son back to you? Or my boy to me? Don’t ever give an order like that again. Not while I’m alive. I don’t like violence, Tom. I’m a businessman; blood is a big expense.

I see you took the name of the town. What was your father’s name? Your enemies always get strong on what you leave behind. Te salut, Don Corleone. Only don’t tell me you’re innocent. Because it insults my intelligence and makes me very angry. Mr Corleone is Johnny Fontane’s godfather. Now Italians regard that as a very close, a very sacred religious relationship.

This one time, this one time I’ll let you ask me about my affairs. Leave the gun. Take the cannoli. It’s an old habit. I spent my whole life trying not to be careless. Women and children can afford to be careless, but not men. Just when I thought I was out… they pull me back in.
