Script

BONASERA (seated in front of the Don's desk, facing the camera)

I believe in the Caribbean. The Caribbean has made my fortune. And I raised my daughter in the New World fashion. I gave her freedom, but—I taught her never to dishonor her family. She found a boyfriend; not an Italian. She went to the pub with him; she stayed out late. I didn't protest. Two months ago, he took her for a short sail, with another boyfriend. They made her drink rum. And then they tried to take advantage of her. She resisted. She kept her honor. So they beat her, like an animal. When I went to the hospital, her nose was a'broken. Her jaw was a'shattered, held together by wire. She couldn't even weep because of the pain. But I wept. Why did I weep? She was the light of my life—beautiful girl. Now she will never be beautiful again.

[Bonasera breaks down. The Don gestures to Sonny to give Bonasera a drink]

Sorry...

[Bonasera, taking the drink, sips from the shot glass]

I -- I went to the Royal Navy, like a good settler. These two boys were brought to trial. The judge sentenced them to three years in prison—suspended sentence. Suspended sentence! They went free that very day! I stood in the courtroom like a fool. And those two bastard, they smiled at me. Then I said to my wife, "for justice, we must go to Don Corleone."

VITO CORLEONE (sitting behind his desk, petting a cat)

Why did you go to the Royal Navy? Why didn't you come to me first?

BONASERA

What do you want of me? Tell me anything. But do what I beg you to do.

VITO CORLEONE

What is that?

[Bonasera gets up to whisper his request into Don Corleone's ear]

That I cannot do.

BONASERA

I'll give you anything you ask.

VITO CORLEONE

We've known each other many years, but this is the first time you came to me for counsel, for help. I can't remember the last time that you invited me to your house for a cup of coffee, even though my wife is godmother to your only child. But let's be frank here: you never wanted my friendship. And-a, you were afraid to be in my debt.

BONASERA

I didn't want to get into trouble.

VITO CORLEONE

I understand. You found paradise in the Caribbean, had a good trade, made a good living. The Royal Navy protected you; and there were courts of law. And you didn't need a friend of me. But-a, now you come to me and you say -- "Don Corleone give me justice."—But you don't ask with respect. You don't offer friendship. You don't even think to call me Godfather. Instead, you come into my house on the day my daughter is to be married, and you uh ask me to do murder, for money.

BONASERA

I ask you for justice.

VITO CORLEONE

That is not justice; your daughter is still alive.

BONASERA

Then they can suffer then, as she suffers.

How much shall I pay you?

VITO CORLEONE (stands, turning his back toward Bonasera)

Bonasera... Bonasera... What have I ever done to make you treat me so disrespectfully? Had you come to me in friendship, then this scum that ruined your daughter would be suffering this very day. And that by chance if an honest man such as yourself should make enemies, then they would become my enemies. And then they would fear you.

BONASERA

Be my friend --

(then, after bowing and the Don shrugs)

-- Godfather?

VITO CORLEONE (after Bonasera kisses his hand)

Good.

Some day, and that day may never come, I'll call upon you to do a service for me. But-a,

until that day—accept this justice as a gift on my daughter's wedding day.

BONASERA (as he leaves the room)

Grazie, Godfather.

VITO CORLEONE

Prego.

(then, to Tom Hagen, after Bonasera leaves the room)

Ah, give this to ah, Clemenza. I want reliable people; people that aren't gonna be carried away. I'm mean, we're not murderers, despite of what this undertaker says.

VITO CORLEONE (seated)

Nazorine, my friend, what can I do for you?

NAZORINE

Well now that the war is over, this boy, Enzo—they want to repatriate him back to Italy. Godfather, I have a daughter. You see, she and Enzo...

VITO CORLEONE

You want Enzo to stay in this country, and you want your daughter to be married.

NAZORINE (stands)

You understand everything.

[they shake hands, Nazorine turns to leave]

VITO CORLEONE

Bene.

NAZORINE (now by the door with Tom Hagen)

Mr. Hagen, thank you.

An' wait til you see the beautiful wedding cake I made for your daughter! Ooof! [gestures]

Like this! The bride and the groom and the angel...

He's not on the list, but Luca Brasi wants to see you

VITO CORLEONE

All right.

CUT TO: Outside of the Corleone residence, Luca sits, rehearsing his lines -day

LUCA BRASI (rehearsing his lines aloud)

Don Corleone, I am honored and grateful that you have invited me to your home on the wedding day of your daughter. And may their first child be a masculine child.

(then, starting over, which continues throughout the following dialogue)

Don—Don Corleone...

KAY

Michael, that man over there is talking to himself. See that scary guy over there?

LUCA'S VOICE

...on the wedding day of your daughter...

MICHAEL (after glancing over at Luca)

He's a very scary guy.

KAY

Well, who is he? What's his name?

MICHAEL

His name is Luca Brasi—an' he helps my father out sometimes.

[Luca stands up, facing Mike and Kay, seemingly coming toward them]

KAY

Oh, Michael, wait a minute; he's coming over here...

TOM (appearing in view)

Mike!

MICHAEL

Oh!

TOM (embracing Michael)

Heh...! You look terrific!

MICHAEL

My brother, Tom Hagen—this is Kay Adams.

TOM

How do you do.

KAY

How do you do, Tom

TOM (into Michael's ear)

Your father's been asking for you

(then, to Kay, before he leaves)

Very nice to meet you

KAY

Nice to meet you

(then, after Tom exits to bring Luca into the Don's office)

If he's your brother, why does he have a different name?

MICHAEL

Oh, ah, that—when my brother Sonny was a kid, he found Tom Hagen in the street. And he had no home—and so my father took him in—and he's been with us ever since. He's a good lawyer. Not a Sicilian, but—I think he's gonna be consiglieri.

KAY

What's that?

MICHAEL

That's um, like a counselor—an advisor—very important to the family.

(then)

You like your lasagna?

CUT TO: Luca Brasi in Don Corleone's office -day

LUCA BRASI (after kissing the Don's left cheek)

Don Corleone, I am honored and grateful that you have invited me to your daugh—ter's wedding...

...on the day of your daughter's wedding. And I hope that their first child be a masculine child. I pledge my ever-ending loyalty. --

[Playing kids run into the room and then are escorted out by Tom]

(then, as Luca hands Don Corleone a cash-filled envelope)

For your daughter's bridal purse.

VITO CORLEONE

Thank you, Luca, my most valued friend.

LUCA BRASI

Don Corleone, I'm gonna leave you now, because I know you are busy.

VITO CORLEONE

Thank you.

[Tom escorts Luca out]

Salute!

[OS: Screaming of joy from the party outside]

VITO CORLEONE

What is that outside?

CUT TO: Outside, Johnny Fontane enters the party, signing autographs

CONNIE (while running up to Johnny, then hugging him)

Johnny! Johnny! Johnny! I love you!

CUT TO: Don's office. The Don is looking out the window

VITO

He came all the way from California to come to the wedding; I told you he was going to come.

TOM

It's been two years; he's probably in trouble again.

VITO

He's a good godson.

CUT TO: Bandstand area -day

MAMA CORLEONE

Johnny, Johnny! [In Italian: "Sing a song"]

(then, in English)

Sing a song.

[the crowd encourages Johnny, and he gives in]

CUT TO: Michael and Kay's table -day

KAY

Mike, you never told me you knew Johnny Fontane!

MICHAEL

Sure... You wanna meet him?

KAY

Huh? Oh, well, sure!

MICHAEL

My father helped him with his career.

JOHNNY (OS)

For my Connie...

KAY

He did? How?

JOHNNY (OS, singing "I Have But One Heart")

"I have but one heart..."

MICHAEL

Let's listen to the song...

KAY

Oh, Michael...

CUT TO: Johnny singing to Connie, who's seated. Then PAN the crowd cheering and screaming as Johnny sings

JOHNNY (singing, continues)

"...this heart I bring you / I have but one heart / To share with you / I have but one dream /

That I can cling to / You are the one dream/I pray comes true..."

KAY

Please, Michael, tell me.

JOHNNY (OS, continues the song)

"My darling, until I saw you..."

MICHAEL

Well, when Johnny was first starting out, he was signed to this personal service contract; with a big band leader. And as his career got better and better, he wanted to get out of it. Now, Johnny is my father's godson. And my father went to see this band leader, and he offered him $10,000 to let Johnny go. But the band leader said no. So the next day, my father went to see him; only this time with Luca Brasi. And within an hour, he signed a release, for a certified check for $1,000.

KAY

How'd he do that?

MICHAEL

My father made him an offer he couldn't refuse.

KAY

What was that?

MICHAEL

Luca Brasi held a gun to his head, and my father assured him that either his brains—or his signature—would be on the contract.

(then)

That's a true story.

(then, after we see Johnny ending the song)

That's my family, Kay. It's not me.

CUT TO: Bandstand area -day
