l'm having a salsiccia sandwich.

l'll be back.

Hello, Kay.

Congratulations, Michael.

That's quite an honour.

But a little expensive, wouldn't you say?

- Cake?

- No, thank you.

- lt's been a long time, hasn't it?

- Yeah.

- Eight years.

- Yeah.

You look wonderful.

Your son has something he wants to

talk to you about. l came here for him.

- What's wrong with being a lawyer?

- He wants his life to be in music.

Music is great, l love music.

But he should finish what he started.


- l'm going my own way.

- Your own way?

- Professional singer?

- Yes.

What happens if you fail?

- l won't fail.

- Men always believe that.

A law degree is like taking

out insurance.

- After that you can work for me...

- l will never work for you.

l have bad memories.

Every family has bad memories.

l'll always be your son, but won't have

anything to do with your business.

Anthony... finish the law degree.


Well, that he got from you. That ''no''.

- You could've helped me convince him.

- Convince him of what?

Of what?

He throws his life away.

He throws greatness away.

This is greatness?

Now that you're so respectable,

you're more dangerous than ever.

l preferred you when you were

just a common Mafia hood.


- Can we talk common sense here?

- All right.

Tony knows that you killed Fredo.

- What did you come here for?

- To protect my son.

Not to see you disguised by your

church. That was a shameful ceremony.

l spent my life protecting my son.

l spent my life protecting my family!

Let's be reasonable, okay?

That's your big thing, isn't it, Michael?


- Backed up by murder.

- Oh, God.

- You hate me. You hate me.

- No.

l don't hate you.

l dread you.
