l did what l could, Kay, to protect all

of you from the horrors of this world.

But you became my horror.

The children still love you, though.

Especially Mary.

That's something.

We can build on that. For their sake.

Let's try.

Only if you let Tony go free to have

his own life, away from you.

l'll let Tony go.

Thank you.

- Hi.

- Hi.

You could hurt somebody with those.

Let me show you around.

Can you get me an interview

with Corleone?

No. l'm a relative, but l can't do that.

What else can l do for you?

- Handsome, but useless.

- Oh, yeah?

- That's okay, l'll gamble.

- Do you like to gamble?

Let's go to Atlantic City.

l'll show you how to gamble.

- How do l know what numbers to bet?

- Do l look like a loser?


Spooky-looking guy there.

- What's a guy like that doing here?

- That's Joey Zasa's bulldog.

- You know him?

- Yeah, l do.

His name is Anthony Squigilaro.

They call him ''The Ant''.

He dips his bullets in cyanide.

Don Altobello.

- l've come to pay my respects.

- Grazie.

You honour my father's friendship.

Where is my goddaughter?

- Constanza!

- Don Altobello.

lt was not so long ago

that l held you in these old hands.

Michael, l've lost all the venom,

all the juice of youth.

l've lost the lust for women,

and now my mind is clear.

My duty to God is clear.

l have a special favour to ask of you.

Can l attach my name

to the Vito Corleone Foundation,

so that you and l can be joined

in name and spirit?

- One million dollars.

- Oh, my!

- Godfather.

- Don Altobello, you have such a heart.

Come, let's go and sample

some of that old vino.

The Vatican knows nothing

about these shareholders.


l have a tendency to worry. We've

increased our position substantially.

- Naturally, l worry.

- Stop worrying, we have an agreement.
