Sollozzo:
Bene. Don Corleone. I need a man who has powerful friends. I need a million dollars in cash. I need Don Corleone and all of those politicians that you carry around in your pocket like so many nickels and dimes.



Don Corleone:
What is the interest for my family?



Sollozzo:
Thirty percent. In the first year your end should be 3, 4 million dollars and then it would go up.



Don Corleone:
And what is the interest for the Tattalgia family?



Sollozzo:
[to Tom] My compliments. I'll take care of the Tattalgia's, out of my share.



Don Corleone:
So, I am to receive thirty percent for finance, for legal protection and politcal influence, is that what you're telling me?



Sollozzo:
That's right.



Don Corleone:
Why come to me? What have I done to deserve such generousity?



Sollozzo:
If you consider a million dollars in cash merely finance... te salud Don Corleone.



Don Corleone:
I said that I would see you because I had heard that you were a serious man. A man to be treated with respect but I must say no to you and I will give you my reasons. It's true, I have a lot of friends in politics. But they wouldn't be so friendly if they knew my business was drugs instead of gambling which they consider a harmless vice but drugs, that's a dirty business.



Sollozzo:
Don Corleone...



Don Corleone:
It doesn't make any difference to me what a man does for a living, you understand, it's just that your business is a little dangerous.



Sollozzo:
If you're worried about security for your million the Tattaglia's will guarantee it.



Sonny:
Oh, now, are you telling me that the Tattaglia's guarantee our investment without...



Don Corleone:
Wait a minute... I have a sentimental weakness for my children and I spoil them as you can see. They talk when they should listen. Anyway, Signor Sollozzo, my no to you is final. I want to congratulate you on your new business and I'm sure you'll do very well and good luck to you. Especially since your interests don't conflict with mine. Thank you.


[Sollozzo leaves]



Don Corleone:
Santino! Come here. What's the matter with you? I think your brain's going soft with all that comedy you're playing with that young girl. Never tell anyone outside the Family what you're thinking again! Go on.



Don Corleone:
[looking a the flowers being brought in] What is... what is this nonsense?



Tom Hagen:
They're from Johnny. He's starring in that new film.



Don Corleone:
Take it away.



Tom Hagen:
Put it over there.



Don Corleone:
Tell Luca Brazi to come in.
