[as Tessio and Hagen walk to Michael's house, they are met by a bodyguard]
Tom Hagen: The boss says he'll come in a separate car. He says for you two to go on ahead.
Sal Tessio: Hell, he can't do that; that screws up all my arrangements.
Tom Hagen: Well, that's what he said.
Tom Hagen: I can't go with you either, Tessio.
[as bodyguards materialize around them, Tessio understands everything]
Sal Tessio: [to Hagen] Tell Mike it was only business, I always liked him.
Tom Hagen: He understands that.
Tom Hagen: [removing Tessio's gun] Excuse me, Sally.
Sal Tessio: Can you get me off the hook, Tom? For old times' sake?
Tom Hagen: [shakes his head] Can't do it, Sally.
[Hagen watches sadly as Tessio is led to a waiting car]

Don Vito Corleone: Call Bonasera. We need him now.
[Tom Hagen calls Amerigo Bonasera]
Tom Hagen: [on the phone] This is Tom Hagen, calling for Vito Corleone at his request. Now, you owe your Don a service. He has no doubt that you will repay him. In one hour he will be at your funeral parlor to ask for your help. Be there to greet him.
[as ordered, a nervous Bonasera meets the Don at his parlor]
Don Vito Corleone: Well, my friend, are you ready to do me this service?
Bonasera: Yes. What do you want me to do?
[the two walk into the embalming room, where a corpse lies on a table...]
Don Vito Corleone: [staring at the table] I want you to use all your powers, and all your skills. I don't want his mother to see him this way.
[he draws back the sheet to reveal, to a horrified Bonasera, the bullet-smashed face of Sonny Corleone]
Don Vito Corleone: [breaking down for a fraction of a second] Look how they massacred my boy...

[at midnight, Don Corleone walks into his office and finds Tom Hagen taking a drink]
Don Vito Corleone: Give me a drop.
[Hagen hands the Don his glass of anisette]
Don Vito Corleone: 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.
Tom Hagen: I didn't tell Mama anything. I was just about to come up and wake you so that I could tell you.
Don Vito Corleone: But you needed a drink first.
[Hagen nods]
Don Vito Corleone: And now you've had your drink.
Tom Hagen: 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]
Don Vito Corleone: [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.

[Sonny pays a visit to his sister Connie. He is surprised to find her subdued and evasive]
Santino 'Sonny' Corleone: [surprised] What's the matter? Huh? What's the matter?
[He looks at her swollen face and understands what has happened. He pulls away to go after Carlo... ]
Connie Corleone Rizzi: [grabbing his shoulders] It was my fault!
Santino 'Sonny' Corleone: Where is he?
Connie Corleone Rizzi: [weeping with terror] Sonny, please. Sonny, it was my fault. It was my fault. I started a fight with him. Please, Sonny...
[Sonny, now under control, hushes her and kisses her forehead]
Santino 'Sonny' Corleone: Okay... I'm just going to get a doctor to come down and take a look at you.
Connie Corleone Rizzi: Sonny, please don't do anything. Please don't do anything.
Santino 'Sonny' Corleone: What's the matter with you, huh? What am I going to do? Am I going to make that baby an orphan before he's born?
[Connie gives a chuckle, and Sonny kisses her again and good-humouredly shrugs his soldiers]
Santino 'Sonny' Corleone: All right?
[cut to Sonny beating up Carlo]

[Clemenza prepares Michael for his meeting with Sollozzo]
Peter Clemenza: [holding up a .22] It's as cold as they come, impossible to trace. So you don't have to worry about prints, Mike. I put a special tape on the trigger and the butt. Here, try it...
[Michael takes the gun, but can't seem to fire it]
Peter Clemenza: What's the matter, trigger too tight?
[With a loud bang, Michael finally discharges the gun]
Michael Corleone: Ow! My ears.
Peter Clemenza: Yeah, I left it noisy. That way it scares any pain-in-the-ass innocent bystanders away. All right, you shot them both, now what do you do?
Michael Corleone: Sit down and finish my dinner.
Peter Clemenza: Come on, kid, don't fool around. Just let your hand drop to your side and the gun slip out. Everyone will still think you've got it. They're gonna be staring at your face, Mike. So walk out of the place real fast, but you don't run. Don't look nobody directly in the eye, hut don't look away either. They're gonna be scared of you, believe me, so don't worry about nothing.
[while talking, Clemenza takes the gun and begins working on it to fix the trigger]
Peter Clemenza: You know, Mike, you're gonna turn out all right. You take a long vacation, nobody knows where, and we'll catch the hell.
Michael Corleone: How bad do you think it's gonna be?
Peter Clemenza: Pretty goddam bad. Probably all the other Families will line up against us. That's all right. These things gotta happen every five years or so, ten years. Helps to get rid of the bad blood. Been ten years since the last one. You know, you gotta stop them at the beginning. Like they should have stopped Hitler at Munich, they should never let him get away with that, they was just asking for trouble.
[Clemenza now finishes working on the gun]
Peter Clemenza: You know, Mike, we was all proud of you being a hero and all. Your father too.
[Clemenza hands the gun back to Michael]

Peter Clemenza: What's with all the new faces?
Sal Tessio: We'll need 'em now. After the hospital thing, Sonny got mad. We hit Bruno Tattaglia at four o'clock this morning.
Peter Clemenza: ...Jesus Christ.
