The Godfather (1972)
Sterling Hayden: Capt. McCluskey
Sollozzo : [to Michael, in Sicilian] I am sorry. What happened to your father was business. I have much respect for your father. But your father, his thinking is old-fashioned. You must understand why I had to do that. Now let's work through where we go from here.
[Michael tries speaking in Sicilian, but can't express himself properly, so with a quick look at McCluskey they both switch to English]
Michael : What I want... what's most important to me is that I have a guarantee: no more attempts on my father's life.
Sollozzo : What guarantees could I give you, Mike? I'm the hunted one. I've missed my chance. You think too much of me, kid. I am not that clever. All I want is a truce.
Michael : I have to go to the bathroom. Is that all right?
Capt. McCluskey : You gotta go, you gotta go.
[Michael gets up, but a suspicious Sollozzo probes Michael's crotch, to Michael's offense]
Capt. McCluskey : I frisked him. He's clean.
Sollozzo : Don't take too long...
[Michael heads to the bathroom]
Capt. McCluskey : [to Sollozzo] I frisked a thousand young punks.
Capt. McCluskey : I thought I got all you Guinea hoods locked up! What the hell are you doing here?
Michael : What happened to the men who were guarding my father, Captain?
Capt. McCluskey : I pulled them guys off of here, eh, now get away from this hospital!
Michael : I'm not leaving until you put some guards around my father's room.
Capt. McCluskey : Phil, take him in!
Cop with Capt. McCluskey outside hospital : The kid's clean Captain, he's a war hero! He's never been mixed up with the rackets...
Capt. McCluskey : Goddamn it Phil, I said take him in!
Michael : What's the Turk paying you to set up my father, Captain?
Capt. McCluskey : [to Patrolmen] Take a hold of him. Stand him up. Stand him up straight.
[punches Michael and breaks his jaw]
Sollozzo : I'm glad you came, Mike. I hope we can straighten everything out. I mean, this is terrible... it's not the way I wanted things to go at all. It should've never happened.
Michael : We'll straighten everything out tonight. I don't want my father bothered anymore.
Sollozzo : He won't be, Mike. I swear on my children he won't be. But you gotta keep an open mind when we talk. I mean, I hope you're not a hothead like your brother Sonny. You can't talk business with him.
Capt. McCluskey : Ahh, he's a good kid. I'm sorry about the other night, Mike.
[Shakes Michael's hand]
Capt. McCluskey : I gotta frisk you, so turn around, on your knees facing me.
[Michael turns around, McCluskey frisks him]
Capt. McCluskey : I guess I'm getting too old for my job. Too grouchy... can't stand the aggravation. You know how it is.
Capt. McCluskey : He's clean.
