Woltz, I'm a lawyer, I have not threatened you. His connections to underworld figures, though, are legendary. The Tattaglia family under Underboss expanded into in the of 1945, which caused the Corleones to be without a home for a while. So now, here comes Sollozzo. He always intended to Kill Sollozzo and the cop because if he was left alive he would be providing massive amounts of money the other families could use in the war against the Corleones. Clemenza and the Corleone family bombed several of his drug fronts and destroyed in Midtown, blowing up his contraband. Apollonia's family, and other townspeople are gathered around.
All the while, they are laughing and joking in Italian. First of all, you're all done. I'm mean, we're not murderers, despite of what this undertaker says. You want me to send any people over here? Michael asks for the guarantee because at that point he was hoping Solozzo was the mastermind and was willing to make a truce with him despite Solozzo trying to kill His father. The Godfather is a classic of American cinema, and Godfather Part 2 is considered by some an even better movie.
That's all I can tell you about my business then Kay. Answer: Luca wasn't Vito's bodyguard, Paulie Gatto was. I've decided to be Godfather to Connie's baby. And he had no home -- and so my father took him in -- and he's been with us ever since. Lets say for argument sake Sollozzo says he gives the guarantee. You must understand why I had to do that. And, we hope you'll sign a contract to appear five times a year.
While Michael is considered a war hero due to being wounded, there's no indication Michael has ever killed anyone face to face, so this would be his first time. Maybe it depends on the fact that that part of dialogue was taken from an extended version? Anyway, Signor Sollozzo, my no to you is final. Rule 2 - Please provide evidence Evidence makes for a good theory, this will be judged at the discretion of the mods. A couple of our people. If your father dies, then you make the deal, Sonny.
I'll do anything for my Godfather -- you know that. His wife's death certainly had an effect, but it really is his brother Sonny's murder that cements the path that Michael is now on. After Clemenza leaves, the phone rings - it's Sollozzo, who tells Sonny that he has Tom Hagen. Tell Fredo to drive the big car. He's dead, Tom, and nothing can bring him back. Michael and Kay are walking together as Michael's car follows behind. He was guarded by his bodyguard Captain , who had earlier beat Corleone as he left guard duty at the hospital where his father was held.
And then they would fear you. He sends Luca Brasi to sleep with the fishes and orders an assassination attempt on Don Corleone, who miraculously survives. You think too much of me kid. There are others inside the lobby and on the stairs. Had you come to me in friendship, then this scum that ruined your daughter would be suffering this very day. Don Corleone was in hospital room 2 before he changed rooms.
But you gotta keep an open mind when we talk. Now, Johnny is my father's godson. Pop had Genco -- look what I got. If I had a wartime consiglieri -- a Sicilian -- I wouldn't be in this shape! Legacy Sollozzo's death was a surprise to the , who then called for an offensive against the Corleone businesses everywhere. I don't know what to do.
You know any gooda spots on the West Side? From apologizing, to swearing on his children to no more harm to his father, to wanting to move forward, to now suddenly saying he can't guarantee his father's safety, and to add insult to injury, insisting that he is now the victim 'cause he didn't properly assassinate his dad. After that war Vito was top dog of all the 5 families. You lousy bastard -- you killed my husband! Michael takes the lighter and lights his cigarette, noticing that his hands are not shaking. He must let us draw the water from the well. Add some red wine and sugar.
I'm putting you on a plane to Vegas -- then, to Tom, as he reaches out his hand Tom? You are hitting all my Godfather buttons and Coppola buttons for that matter with that analysis. Some boys are playing, one is pushing the other in a toy car as the latter yells ah! But Michael, younger, his reflexes sharper, pulled the trigger. Take me to America, G. We see Tessio walking from Barzini, towards Michael. A buttonman picks it up and tosses it back. Going by the film however, Sollozzo is introduced in the Post-War era as the first person who has proposed to formally integrate the Five Families into the drug trade.
