Godfather (1972) (Movie)
I like this quote!I don't like this quote!
Don Vito 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. In Sicily he has the plant 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 Vito 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 Vito Corleone: Santino, what do you think?
Santino 'Sonny' Corleone: There's a lot of money in that white powder.
Don Vito 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 one of the 5 Families maybe all of them and with the money they earn they'll be able to buy more police and political power. Then they come after us. Right now we have the unions and we have the gambling and those are the best things to have. But narcotics is a thing on the future. If we don't get a piece of that action we risk everything we have. Not now but ten years from now.
Santino 'Sonny' Corleone: Well, what's your answer gonna be, Pop?
