The Godfather (1972) Poster


Talia Shire: Connie



  • [Sonny pays a visit to his sister Connie. He is surprised to find her subdued and evasive] 

    Sonny : [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 : [grabbing his shoulders]  It was my fault!

    Sonny : Where is he?

    Connie : [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] 

    Sonny : Okay... I'm just going to get a doctor to come down and take a look at you.

    Connie : Sonny, please don't do anything. Please don't do anything.

    Sonny : 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] 

    Sonny : All right?

    [cut to Sonny beating up Carlo] 

  • [Sunday dinner at the Corleone home...] 

    Sonny : Niggers havin' a real good time up in Harlem...

    Carlo Rizzi : I knew that was going to happen as soon as they tasted the big money.

    Connie : Papa never talked about business in front of the kids.

    Carlo Rizzi : Shut up, Connie.

    Sonny : Hey, don't you EVER tell her to shut up, you got that?

    Mama Corleone : Santino, don't interfere.

    [Silence reigns around the table for a while] 

    Carlo Rizzi : Sonny, Tom, I'd like to talk to you after dinner. I think I can do a lot more for this family...

    Sonny : We don't discuss business at the table.

  • Connie : [shrieking at Michael]  You killed my husband! You waited until our father died so nobody could stop you and you killed him! You killed him! You blamed him for Sonny, you always did, everybody did. But you never thought about me. You never gave a dam about me. What am I going to do now?

    Kay Adams : [taking Connie in her arms]  Connie...

    Connie : Why do you think he kept Carlo at the mall? All the time he knew he was going to kill him. And then he stood Godfather to our baby. You think you know your husband? You know how many men he had killed! Read the papers. Read the papers! That's your husband!

    [Michael takes Connie into her arms, but she goes wild again and tries to attack him] 

    Michael Corleone : Take her upstairs. Get her a doctor.

    [Michael's bodyguards grab Connie and pull her out of the office] 

    Michael Corleone : [to Kay]  She's hysterical.

    Kay Adams : Is it true?

    Michael Corleone : Don't ask me about my business, Kay.

    Kay Adams : Is it true?

    Michael Corleone : Don't ask me about my business...

    Kay Adams : No...

    Michael Corleone : [slams the desk]  ENOUGH!

  • Connie : Dinner's on the table.

    Carlo Rizzi : I'm not hungry yet.

    Connie : Your food is on the table. It's getting cold.

    Carlo Rizzi : I'll eat out later.

    Connie : You just told me to make you dinner!

    Carlo Rizzi : Hey, vaffanculo, eh?

    Connie : Aw, vaffanculo you!

  • Connie : What's the matter, Carlo?

    Carlo Rizzi : [punk sore at the world]  Shut up and set the table!
