Lorenzo: Mike, are you sure you wanna go this way? I mean we buried this a long time ago.
Michael: You still sleep with the light on?

Michael: You gotta get me one for our side.
Lorenzo: One what?
Michael: One witness. A witness who'll put John and Tommy somewhere else on the night of the murder. A witness they can't touch
Lorenzo: Don't they got a name for that?
Michael: A judge would call it perjury.
Lorenzo: I see, and what are we calling it?
Michael: A favor.

Michael: Revenge. Sweet lasting revenge. Now it's time for all of us to get a taste.

Father Bobby: I'm telling you as a witness... and as a priest. We were at the game.
Michael: Yes, as a priest, and a priest wouldn't lie? Am I right?

Michael: Why is that, Father? Why do you keep the stubs?

Father Bobby: No. No one ever has. But there's a first time for everything.
