We don’t want to oversell this, but The Godfather may just be the best movie of all time. We’ll let that sink in for a minute. This year The Godfather is celebrating its 45th anniversary. Can you imagine? Whether you’re a fan of the first one, the second, or the third (yes we did that in that order) there are so many iconic quotes and scenes that are ingrained in our head for life that it’s nearly impossible to list out our favorites without basically becoming a court stenographer and just listing out every line from all The Godfather movies. Check out some of the best quotes and scenes from The Godfather we love and check back often because, clearly, we’ll be updating this as more and more quotes pop into our heads and when you yell at us on Facebook when we miss your favorite.
