The Freshman (1990)
Marlon Brando: Carmine Sabatini
Carmine Sabatini : I want you to take this opportunity. Totally legitimate work for $1,000 dollars a week. And I know that you're not gonna disappoint me.
Clark Kellogg : Well, I don't see how I could say no.
Carmine Sabatini : [leans back in his chair] This is not a yes.
[takes a walnut and cracks it open in his hand]
Carmine Sabatini : [still crushing the shell] I want to hear yes.
Clark Kellogg : Sir, I don't know where this talk of marriage began, but I'm really not ready. I'd really like to sample life a little bit first.
Carmine Sabatini : Wait. No, wait. Clark, after you get married you sample life. I mean, this is what men do. Marriage is an institution. It's the bedrock of society. What you're talking about is a little va-va-voom. This is self understood. But, what I'm talking about is social order.
Clark Kellogg : I'm illegally transporting endangered species! Please, sir, I'd like to be let out.
Carmine Sabatini : Wait a minute. This is an impossibility.
Clark Kellogg : What do you mean? Why can't...
Carmine Sabatini : Look, Clark. I have a certain standing in the business community. How's it gonna look? A young college kid gonna make me look like a fool? I mean this is humiliation. It's infamia.
Clark Kellogg : There's federal officers after me.
Carmine Sabatini : Did you get their names?
Clark Kellogg : Greenwald and Simpson. They told me that they would put me in jail for two years, unless I led them to the Gourmet Club.
Carmine Sabatini : No, they're not gonna, they're not gonna send you to jail.
Clark Kellogg : Oh, they're not?
Carmine Sabatini : No, they're gonna blow your brains out.
Carmine Sabatini : I'm getting too old for this nonsense.
Carmine Sabatini : When you finish film school, I'd like to call you, because I know a lot of people in Hollywood.
Clark Kellogg : Oh, really?
Carmine Sabatini : Yeah. I could kick a couple of doors open for you.
Clark Kellogg : Oh. Oh.
Carmine Sabatini : Give you a couple of opportunities.
Clark Kellogg : Oh. Oh, no. No, no. You know, I... I don't know. I don't think that's necessary.
Carmine Sabatini : No, no, no, really. It's easy for me. I'll just make a phone call. Make it easy for you.
Carmine Sabatini : [Walking the Komodo dragon] What's the matter with you? You turning out to be a bum. Come on, hey, come on. Come on. If it weren't for me you could have been a - could have been a handbag.
Clark Kellogg : Do you know, that picture on the wall back there, that wouldn't by any chance be Mussolini?
Carmine Sabatini : It ain't Tony Bennett.
Carmine Sabatini : Some of the other members of the club, just, eh, I don't know, they keep it up there for sentiment.
Clark Kellogg : Sentiment?
Victor Ray : Yeah, you know, the old days.
Carmine Sabatini : Yeah, it's for the old days, for good or for bad. It would be like for you, I suppose, a picture of the The Beatles.
Victor Ray : Yeah, The Beatles.
Clark Kellogg : They're actually before my time.
Carmine Sabatini : Well, whatever works.
