The Godfather (1972) Poster


Gianni Russo: 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.

  • Michael : You have to answer for Santino, Carlo. You fingered Sonny for the Barzini people.

    Carlo Rizzi : Mike, you got it all wrong.

    Michael : Ah, that little farce you played with my sister. You think that would fool a Corleone?

    Carlo Rizzi : Mike, I'm innocent. I swear on the kids.

    Michael : Sit down.

    Carlo Rizzi : Please don't do this to me, Mike. Please don't.

    Michael : Barzini is dead. So is Phillip Tattaglia. Moe Greene. Stracci. Cuneo. Today I settled all family business so don't tell me that you're innocent. Admit what you did.

    [Carlo starts sobbing] 

    Michael : Get him a drink. Don't be afraid, Carlo. Come on, you think I'd make my sister a widow? I'm Godfather to your son.

    [Carlo get handed a drink] 

    Michael : Go ahead. Drink. Drink. No, you're out of the family business, that's your punishment. You're finished. I'm putting you on a plane to Vegas. Tom?

    [Tom hands Michael an airplane ticket] 

    Michael : I want you to stay there, you understand?

    [Carlo nods] 

    Michael : Only don't tell me that you're innocent. Because it insults my intelligence and it makes me very angry. Now, who approached you first? Barzini or Tattaglia?

    Carlo Rizzi : It was Barzini.

    Michael : Good. There's a car outside that will take you to the airport. I'll call your wife and tell her what flight you're on.

    Carlo Rizzi : Listen, Mike...

    Michael : Go on. Get out of my sight.

  • 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!
