Here are some of the quotable quotes that you may have encountered once or twice as pop culture reference:
My father made him an offer he can’t refuse.
Have you ever dreamed of saying those words to someone? Well, I have and it is very fun to say. But the repercussions of saying it are great. You should have the balls, the machinery, and the muscle to actually say it. When you are offered something that you can’t refuse, it means two things- either the offer was too big of a deal or your life is on the line. When Don Vito Corleone says it, the situation is more likely the latter.
Mr. Corleone is a man who insists on hearing bad news at once.
The line really gives me the shivers. What would you think if you heard these words said to you? The line was given by Tom Hagen, played by Robert Duvall. He went to a movie producer who did not want to cast Johnny Fontane, a godson of Don Vito Corleone. Fontane said that this is the break that he was looking for and he did not want to miss the opportunity to gain back his merit.
And so Hagen goes to the home of the movie producer in order to persuade him to reconsider. But he was too stubborn to do it. He boasted that he also had connections and he will not bend and give in. The next day, the head of his precious horse was lying beside his bed, all bloodied and severed.
