Godfather (1972) (Movie)
I like this quote!I don't like this quote!
Sal Tessio: Barzini's people chisle my territory and we do nothing about it. Pretty soon there won't be anyplace in Brooklyn that I can hang my hat.
Michael Corleone: Try and be patient.
Peter Clemenza: I'm not asking for help, Mike, just take off the handcuffs.
Michael Corleone: Be patient.
Peter Clemenza: We gotta protect ourselves. At least give me the chance to recruit some new men.
Michael Corleone: No. I don't want to give Barzini any excuse to start fighting.
Sal Tessio: Mike, you're wrong.
Peter Clemenza: Don Corleone, you once said the day would come when me and Tessio could form our own families. Until today I would never think of such a thing but now I must ask your permission.
Don Vito Corleone: Well, Michael's head of the family now and if give his permission then you have my blessing.
Michael Corleone: After we make the move to Nevada you can break off from the Corleone Family and go off on your own. After we make the move to Nevada.
Peter Clemenza: How long will that take?
Michael Corleone: Six months.
Sal Tessio: Forgive me, Godfather, but with you gone me and Pete will come under Barzini's thumb sooner or later.
Peter Clemenza: And I hate that Goddamn Barzini. In six months time there won't be nothin' left to build on.
Don Vito Corleone: Do you have faith in my judgement?
Peter Clemenza: Yes.
Don Vito Corleone: Do I have your loyalty?
Peter Clemenza: Yes, always Godfather.
Don Vito Corleone: Then be a friend to Michael. Do as he says.
Michael Corleone: There are negotiations being made that are going to answer all of your questions and solve all of your problems. That's all I can tell you right now. Carlo, you grew up in Nevada. When we make our move there you're going to be my right hand man. Tom Hagen is no longer Consigliari. He's going to be our lawyer in Vegas. That's no reflection on Tom it's just the way I want it. Besides, if I ever help who's a better Consigliari than my father. That's it.
[Everyone except Hagen leaves]
Tom Hagen: Mike, why am I out?
Michael Corleone: You're not a wartime Consigliari, Tom. Things could get rough with the move we're making.
Don Vito Corleone: Tom, I advised Michael. I never thought you were a bad Consigliari. I thought Santino was a bad Don, rest in peace. Michael has all my confidence as do you. But there are reasons why you must have nothing to do with what's going to happen.
Tom Hagen: Maybe I could help.
Michael Corleone: You're out, Tom.
