    Was Clemenza suppose to be the one who double crossed Michael?

    Back to original post..... I pretty much thought it was "all of the above". I.e., 1) keep the honor of the "family", 2) we know where your family lives and how to get them, 3) etc, etc.

    How does Senator Geary go from despising Italians, to killing prostitutes, to enjoying himself with Michael in Cuba?

    Wasn't that a setup so he owed them a favor?
    Since they helped him out he thought "oh.... they're really not bad guys".

    No. They wouldn’t have put any of the Pantangeli story in the movie though if they didn’t have to write out Clemenza.

    Tattaglia's a pimp. But I didn't know until this day that it was Barzini all along.

    The line of questioning going on here has made me think of a new Pub game:

    “Troll? or 2HB?”

    They roofied Geary and killed the girl to get him in their pocket, “like so many nickels and dimes”.
    They played rough...

    Actually, Michael was heard to yell at the guy who set up Geary, "I said HORSE!!!!"

    Frank got a raw deal, but he did betray the family. Can't let that slide, whatever the circumstances.

    He was convinced Mike tried to have him killed. Mike killed people for less. Then again, even though Fredo no doubt did not intend Mike to be hit, Mike had Rocko kill him. So you're right.

    Yes, he filled the void left by Sonny's death, who was killed while Michael was hiding out in Sicily.

    Who killed the hit men that machine gunned Michael and Kay's bedroom?

    Al Neri killed Fredo, not Rocco. He sacrificed himself by killing
    Hyman Roth. :cool:

    The scene clearly implies that Geary was drugged, the prostitute was murdered, and Geary "comes to" to find that she's dead. And he's in a heck of a mess. Tom has the boys clean up the mess, and tells Geary something to the effect of "What you need to know is that Michael Corleone is your friend."
