“If you’re going to be somebody, you need to be a leader, not a follower. Gangs are only for followers. You have to be strong minded and I affirmably believe in the saying the impossible is always possible and you don’t need anybody else to tell you that you’re good.”
I understand. You found paradise in America. You had a good trade, you made a good living. The police protected you and there were courts of law. So you didn’t need a friend like me. Now you come and say “Don Corleone, give me justice.” But you don’t ask with respect. You don’t offer friendship. You don’t even think to call me “Godfather.” You come into my house on the day my daughter is to be married and you ask me to do murder - for money.
Did you always want to be a comedian? No. No, I ah, I still don’t. I’m a little different than other comedians in that way. I’ve never wanted this. I was hoping to be a stripper, and I made some wrong turns.
