If I had a quid for every time I’d heard that, I’d be a rich, rich man. Trouble is, it’s not exactly accurate is it? And that’s where Totes Quotes comes in. The finest film quotes transcend the performance from whence they came and have the ability to infiltrate popular culture and consciousness.

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!”
