The Godfather: Part II

Michael, anything. What can I do?
Settle these troubles
with the Rosato brothers.

I don't understand. I don't...
I don't have your brain for big deals.
But this is a street thing.

That Hyman Roth in Miami.
He's backing up those sons-of-bitches.

- I know he is.
- So why ask me to lay down to them?

It was Hyman Roth
that tried to have me killed.

I know it was him.
Jesus Christ, Mike.
Jesus Christ, let's get them all.
Now while we've got the muscle.

This used to be my father's old study.
It's changed.
I remember there used to be
a big desk here.

I remember when I was a kid. We had
to be quiet when we played near here.

I was very happy that this house
never went to strangers.

First Clemenza took it over. Now you.
My father taught me many things here.
He taught me in this room.

He taught me, "Keep your friends close,
but your enemies closer."

If Hyman Roth sees that I interceded
in this, in the Rosato brothers' favour,

he'll think his relationship with me
is still good.

That's what I want him to think.
