|"The Godfather" Trilogy
particularly Part II—sibling relationships marked by love, envy, greed, power, and betrayal
"I've always taken care of you, Fredo."
"Taken care of me! You're my kid brother, and you take care of me? Did ya ever think about that, huh? Did ya even once think about that? Send Fredo off to do this! Send Fredo off to do that! Let Fredo take care of some Mickey Mouse nightclub somewhere! Send Fredo to pick somebody up at the airport! I'm your older brother, Mike, and I was stepped over."
"That's the way Pop wanted it."
"It ain't the way I wanted it! I can handle things. I'm smart, not like everybody says. Not dumb. I'm smart, and I want respect!"
~ The Godfather II, by Francis Ford Coppola and Mario Puzo
