My father is no different than any powerful man, any man with power, like a president or senator. The hotel, the casino. The Corleone Family wants to buy you out. I'm your older brother, Mike, and I was stepped over! Is that why you slapped my brother around in public? Don't ever give an order like that again. Not while I'm alive.

I am sorry. What happened to your father was business. I have much respect for your father. But your father, his thinking is old-fashioned. You must understand why I had to do that. Now let's work through where we go from here. We're both part of the same hypocrisy, senator, but never think it applies to my family. Hey, listen, I want somebody good - and I mean very good - to plant that gun. You can act like a man! My father's name was Antonio Andolini... and this is for you.

Do me this favor. I won't forget it. Ask your friends in the neighborhood about me. They'll tell you I know how to return a favor. When they come... they come at what you love. I'm gonna make him an offer he can't refuse. I see you took the name of the town. What was your father's name?

My father taught me many things here - he taught me in this room. He taught me: keep your friends close, but your enemies closer. It's an old habit. I spent my whole life trying not to be careless. Women and children can afford to be careless, but not men. It's not personal. It's business. I have a sentimental weakness for my children and I spoil them, as you can see. They talk when they should listen. If anything in this life is certain, if history has taught us anything, it is that you can kill anyone.

Very well. You want to do business with me. I will do business with you. I don't feel I have to wipe everybody out, Tom. Just my enemies. Don Corleone, I am honored and grateful that you have invited me to your home on the wedding day of your daughter. And may their first child be a masculine child. Fredo, you're my older brother, and I love you. But don't ever take sides with anyone against the Family again. Ever. Friends and money - oil and water.
