Sure she'd be nice to your face, but then the first opportunity, she'd pull him aside and warn him off. "Mongrel children have such a hard time fitting in dearest." He will lie to you. He will lie to you! He will use you up and marry some inbred Darien Frau who will beget him all the towheaded brats he can afford. They are rigid and they are cold! And you don't know! They are cold, cold, cold to the fucking bone!More [04/23/2007 12:04:00]

Mark: Do you wish Rhett never loved Scarlett? Rick didn't have Ilsa or Harry never loved Sally? Someone once said it's better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all. Succeed or fail, we must make the attempt, it's our nature. Now if it were up to me, as it usually is, I would order this. But its not. Because Claire is right in pointing out the enormous danger potential in any relationship with a man as intelligent but fantastically flakey as Robert. But I must point out the possibilities, the potential, for true love and happiness are equally great. Risk... risk is our business. That's what relationships are all about. That's why we're out there.More [11/28/2007 12:11:00]

Don Corleone: You're not too tired, are you, Tom?
Tom Hagen: No. I slept on the plane. I've got the Sollozzo notes right here. Sollozzo is known as the Turk. He's supposed to be very good with a knife but only in matters of business or of some sort of reasonable complaint. His business is narcotics. He has the fields in Turkey where they grow the poppy. He has the plant in Sicily to process it into heroin. He needs cash and he needs protection from the police for which he gives a piece of the action, I couldn't find out how much. The Tattalglia Family is behind him here in New York so they have to be in it for something.
Don Corleone: What about his prison record?
Tom Hagen: Two terms. One in Italy and one here. He's known as a top narcotics man.
Don Corleone: Santino, what do you think?
Sonny: There's a lot of money in that white powder.
Don Corleone: Tom?
Tom Hagen: Well, I say yes. There's more money potential in narcotics than anything else we're looking at. Now, if we don't get into it somebody else will. Maybe the Tattaglia Family maybe all of them and with the money they earn they'll be able to buy more police and political power. Right now we have the gambling and we have the unions and those are the best things to have. But narcotics is a thing on the future. If we don't get into it now we risk everything we have. Not now but ten years from now.
Sonny: Well, what's your answer gonna be, Pop?More [12/26/2007 12:12:00]
Centauri: [to Grig] But I saw him fight! He could be the greatest Starfighter ever!
Alex Rogan: That was just a game, Centauri!
