QUOTES FROM Richard Conte CHARACTERS

Barzini says: Times have changed. It's not like the Old Days -- when we can do anything we want. A refusal is not the act of a friend. If Don Corleone had all the judges, and the politicians in New York, then he must share them, or let us others use them. He must let us draw the water from the well. Certainly he can -- present a bill for such services; after all -- we are not Communists.

Rivera says: So that's what I am, huh? Whaddaya know. Where'd you get that malarkey, Jake?

Friedman says: Out of a book.

Rivera says: A book!

Friedman says: You're a decadent democrat, Rivera

Friedman says: You're a decadent democrat, Rivera.

Rivera says: Good thing they invented trains for travelling salesmen.

Friedman says: OK, kill me: what's the gag?

Rivera says: No gag. But if they didn't have trains, all the travelling salesmen would have to walk.

Friedman says: *You're* a travelling salesman; you ain't been taking any trains lately.

Rivera says: Rivera: Whaddaya mean, *I'm* a travelling salesman? I'm a murderer!

Friedman says: You're a travelling salesmen. You're selling democracy to the natives.

Rivera says: You're a travelling salesmen. You're selling democracy to the natives.

Barzini says: Surely he can charge a fee for such services. After all, we are not Communists.
