Michael: [while eating dinner with Sollozzo and McCluskey] What I want - what's most important to me - is that I have a guarantee: No more attempts on my father's life.
Sollozzo: What guarantees could I give you, Mike? I am the hunted one! I missed my chance. You think too much of me, kid - I'm not that clever. All I want, is a truce.More Movie: The Godfather  Movie: The Godfather  quotes [12/26/2007 12:12:00]
Don Corleone: Tattaglia's a pimp. He never could've out-fought Santino. But I didn't know until this day that it was Barzini all along.More Movie: The Godfather  Movie: The Godfather  quotes [12/26/2007 12:12:00]

[at midnight, Don Corleone walks into his office and finds Tom Hagen taking a drink]
Give me a drop.
[Hagen hands the Don his glass of anisette]
My wife is crying upstairs. I hear cars coming to the house. Consigliore of mine, I think it's time you told your Don what everyone seems to know.
I didn't tell Mama anything. I was just about to come up and wake you so that I could tell you.
But you needed a drink first.
And now you've had your drink.
They shot Sonny on the causeway. He's dead.
[the Don accepts this news without any sign of emotion, except to close his eyes and remain silent for a few minutes]
[speaking at last] I want no inquiries made. I want no acts of vengeance. I want you to arrange a meeting with the heads of the Five Families. This war stops now. Call Bonasera. We're going to need him now.

Jack Woltz: You don't understand. Johnny Fontane never gets that movie. That part is perfect for him, it'll make him a big star, and I'm gonna run him out of the business - and let me tell you why: Johnny Fontane ruined one of Woltz International's most valuable proteges. For three years we had her under contract - singing lessons, dancing lessons, acting lessons. I spent hundreds of thousands of dollars. I was gonna make her a big star. And let me be even more frank, just to show you that I'm not a hard-hearted man, and that it's not all dollars and cents: She was beautiful; she was innocent. She was the greatest piece of ass I've ever had, and I've had it all over the world. And then Johnny Fontane comes along with his olive oil voice and guinea charm, and she runs off. She threw it all away just to make me look ridiculous! And a man in my position can't afford to be made to look ridiculous! No you get the hell out of here. And you tell that gumba that if he wants to try any rough stuff that I ain't no band leader. Yeah, I heard that story.More Movie: The Godfather  Movie: The Godfather  quotes [12/26/2007 12:12:00]
