Tom Hagen: Mr. Corleone is Johnny?s godfather. To the Italian people, that's a very religious, sacred, close relationship.
Jack Woltz: I respect it. Just tell him he should ask me anything else, but this favor I can't give him.
Tom Hagen: He never asks a second favor when he's been refused the first, understood?
Jack Woltz: You don't understand. Johnny Fontane never gets that movie. That part is perfect for him. It'll make him a big star. And I?m going to run him out of the business! And let me tell you why. Johnny Fontane ruined one of Woltz international's most valuable prot?g?es. For five years, we had her under training? singing lessons, acting lessons, dancing lessons. I spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on her. I was going to make her a big star. And let me be even more frank. Just to show you I?m not a hard-hearted man, that it's not all dollars and cents. She was beautiful. She was young. She was innocent. She was the greatest piece of ass I?ve ever had, and I?ve had them all over the world! And then Johnny Fontane comes along with his olive oil voice and guinea charm. And she runs off. She threw it all away just to make me look ridiculous. And a man in my position can't afford to be made to look ridiculous! Now you get the hell outta here! And if that goombah tries any rough stuff, you tell him I ain't no band leader. Yeah... I heard that story.
Tom Hagen: Thank you for dinner and a pleasant evening. If your car could take me to the airport. Mr. Corleone is a man who insists on hearing bad news immediately.
Tom sits quietly listening to Woltz's rant. When Woltz finishes Tom politely pushes back from the table and stands to make his exit.
