When they come

Godfather ipsum dolor sit amet. It’s a Sicilian message. It means Luca Brasi sleeps with the fishes. My father is no different than any powerful man, any man with power, like a president or senator. Fredo, you’re my older brother, and I love you. But don’t ever take sides with anyone against the Family again. Ever. What’s the matter with you? Is this what you’ve become, a Hollywood finocchio who cries like a woman? “Oh, what do I do? What do I do?” What is that nonsense? Ridiculous! Only don’t tell me you’re innocent. Because it insults my intelligence and makes me very angry.

You talk about vengeance. Is vengeance going to bring your son back to you? Or my boy to me? Michael, you never told me you knew Johnny Fontane! That’s my family Kay, that’s not me. I’m your older brother, Mike, and I was stepped over! This one time, this one time I’ll let you ask me about my affairs.

When they come… they come at what you love. I don’t trust a doctor who can hardly speak English. Never let anyone know what you are thinking. Why did you go to the police? Why didn’t you come to me first? I don’t feel I have to wipe everybody out, Tom. Just my enemies.

  1. Michael, you never told me you knew Johnny Fontane! What’s the matter with you, huh? What am I going to do?

    1. I’m your older brother, Mike, and I was stepped over! Mr Corleone is Johnny Fontane’s godfather. Now Italians regard that as a very close, a very sacred religious relationship. I know it was you, Fredo. You broke my heart. You broke my heart! My father taught me many things here – he taught me in this room.

  2. I’m gonna make him an offer he can’t refuse. That’s my family Kay, that’s not me. Never let anyone know what you are thinking. Don’t ever give an order like that again. Not while I’m alive. It’s a Sicilian message. It means Luca Brasi sleeps with the fishes.
