Godfather Movie Quotes (1972)

See Also Godfather II
Al Pacino (Michael Corleone): My father made him an offer he couldn't refuse.
Diane Keaton (Kay Adams): What was that?
Al Pacino(Michael): Luca Brasi, held a gun to his head, and my father assured him, that either his brain or his signature would be on the contract.

Al Pacino (Michael): My father is no different than any powerful man, any man with power, like a president or senator.
Diane Keaton (Kay): Do you know how naive you sound, Michael? Presidents and senators don't have men killed!
Al Pacino (Michael): Oh. Who's being naive, Kay?

Marlon Brando (Don Corleone): What have I ever done to make you treat me so disrespectfully? If you'd come to me in friendship, then this scum that ruined your daughter would be suffering this very day. And if by chance an honest man like yourself should make enemies, then they would become my enemies. And then they would fear you.

Marlon Brando (Don Corleone): Someday, and that day may never come, I'll call upon you to do a service for me. But until that day accept this justice as gift on my daughter's wedding day

James Caan (Sonny Corleone): I want someone good, I mean very good, to plant that gun. I don't want my brother coming out of the bathroom with just his dick in his hands.

Richard Castellano (Pete Clemenza): It's a Sicilian message. It means Luca Brasi sleeps with the fishes.

Robert Duvall (Tom Hagen): Mr. Corleone never asks a second favor once he's refused the first, understood?

Marlon Brando (Don Corleone): I never wanted this for you. I work my whole life - I don't apologize - to take care of my family, and I refused to be a fool, dancing on the string held by all those bigshots. I don't apologize - that's my life - but I thought that, that when it was your time, that you would be the one to hold the string. Senator Corleone; Governor Corleone. Well, it wasn't enough time, Michael. It wasn't enough time.
Al Pacino (Michael): We'll get there, pop. We'll get there.

Al Pacino (Michael): Fredo, you're my older brother and I love you, but don't ever take sides with anyone against the family again. Ever.

Al Pacino (Michael): I'll make him an offer he can't refuse.

Godfather Trivia
Godfather won 3 Academy Awards:
Best Picture - Albert S. Ruddy, Producer
Actor - Marlon Brando (Brando refused the award. He had native American Saskie Littlefeather decline the award while Brando himself was at Wounded Knee protesting.)
Writing (Screenplay - based on material from another medium) - Mario Puzo, Francis Ford Coppola

Did you know?
That Marlon Brando was voted #4 Man in AFI's 50 Greatest American Screen Legends.

That the studio had grave reservations about Marlon Brando for the lead. He was known to be difficult. Worse, they wanted him to screen test. Coppola couldn't bring himself to say this, so he told Brando he was doing a makeup test. Brando shadowed his eyes and stuffed his cheeks with Kleenex and just sat eating fruit and drinking coffee from a demitasse cup. The rest is history because they knew they had found their Don Vito. Ultimately, Brando was highly co-operative as he enjoyed making the film and wanted the young Francis Ford Coppola to succeed.

That Talia Shire, who plays Connie Corleone is Francis Ford Coppola's sister? And Nicholas Cage's aunt?

That Vic Damone turned down the role of Johnny Fontaine? Or that for some very obvious reasons, Frank Sinatra thought the movie was awful?
