Angie: Is that the Godfather?

Mobster: Yeah, he wants to watch personally. You see, the olive oil those strikers ain't movin' comes from the Godfather's own factory.

Angie: Jesus Christ!

Mobster: What's that?

Angie: Blacks. That's my ace in the hole. Blacks! They work for me. Like dogs they work. Those bastards don't want to load the Father's oil, I'm gonna bring in my blacks to move it. Blacks man, blacks! Pretty sharp, huh?

[gets up to address the strikers as a tarantella underscore plays]

Angie: Everyone goes back to work today! Right? This is Angelo Corleone talkin'! We don't recognize unions on this dock! All we recognize is men who wanna work! There's the boxes to load, there's the pavement, there's the ship. There's no union here! We don't need no commies and Jews here. So let's go, huh? What do you say men?

Men: [in rythm with the underscore] Fuck you!

[the Godfather's car drives off]

Angie: What happened? Why'd the Godfather leave?

Mobster: The Godfather's very strict about this. He don't want no niggers touching his olive oil. You shoulda known that.
