Totes Quotes - The Godfather Part 2

“It’s not what you say, it’s the way you say it!” If I had a shiny new pound coin for every time I’d heard that, I’d be a rich, rich man. Trouble is, it’s not exactly accurate is it? Great dialogue transcends both the performance and the film from whence it came and has the ability to infiltrate popular culture and consciousness. From the endlessly quotable to the words you wish you’d said yourself, every Friday will feature an iconic iteration. So in the words of Reservoir Dogs’ Joe Cabot…”Let’s go to work…”


New Year’s Eve is synonymous with change and this is never more poignant than in The Godfather: Part 2. An increasingly ruthless Michael Corleone (Pacino) chooses it as the moment to reveal to his brother Fredo (John Cazale), that he knows of his business deals against The Family. In an iconic scene, Corleone gives Fredo a literal kiss of death:

“I know it was you, Fredo. You broke my heart. You broke my heart!”

Whoa, Lads! Leave it, it’s not worth it!
