Michael Corleone: Now he has to send you a message back.

Vincent Mancini: Joey Zasa's gonna send me a message? Joey Zasa's gonna send me a message?

Connie: Michael, he did the right thing. He got Zasa's name.

Michael Corleone: What's Joey Zasa got to do this this? Joey Zasa's a patso. Joey Zasa. Alright, you are what you are. It's in your nature. From now on you stick close to me. You don't go anywhere, you don't do anything, you don't talk to anyone without checking with me first, understand?

Vincent Mancini: Yeah.

Michael Corleone: I've got problems with the commission, young man!

Vincent Mancini: Yeah, I know.
