Godfather ipsum dolor sit amet. My father taught me many things here – he taught me in this room. He taught me: keep your friends close, but your enemies closer. Te salut, Don Corleone. My father is no different than any powerful man, any man with power, like a president or senator. 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.
I know it was you, Fredo. You broke my heart. You broke my heart! Friends and money – oil and water. You can act like a man! It’s not personal. It’s business. 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!
I’m your older brother, Mike, and I was stepped over! That’s my family Kay, that’s not me. Just when I thought I was out… they pull me back in. Leave the gun. Take the cannoli. Your enemies always get strong on what you leave behind.
