What an awesome line. A Sicilian message. There's no misunderstanding what Clemenza means when he says that. Extremely graphic in detail, yet also subtle. It was also a favorite line quoted by many.
This is probably the most famous line from the movie. It certainly tells the audience just how powerful the Don is. Whomever he makes this offer to, he won't refuse the Don. (wink, wink)
Hello? This is a thinly veiled threat if I ever heard one. Is Jack Woltz an idiot? He even proves he knows how powerful and vengeful Don Corleone is when he tells Tom to let the Don know he's "no band leader."
Right then and there, you are indebted to the Godfather forever. Not only will he call upon you to do a service for him, once, but he will call upon you for the rest of your life. Big mistake, Bonasera.
Michael says this to Carlo. And you half expect the next line to be from The Incredible Hulk. "And you won't like me when I get angry."
