Mr. Roing: It was in 1912, Oliver Bagwear was going to have a beautiful Wedding at the New York Harbor, because he was going back to Ireland. But the father and the bride was no where to be seen. He was granting favors to all of his bestest Buddies.
The Godfather: Oh my dear Friends. You have been so kind to me. I don't know how you would repay me for all of your magnificent work. I'll make you an offer you can't refuse.
Stanley Ipkiss: Yes Godfather. We would do anything for you my lord.
Don Lino: Anything you would say to us.
Al Pimmer: I think we could scare a Movie Producer by putting a Horse's Blanket on his Bed. Imagine waking up, and seeing he got the wrong kind of Blanket.
The Godfather: How about a Horse's Head?
Al Pimmer: Eh, you see here? That's why you're the Godfather.
Mr. Roing: Oliver was playing with his Grandson and he sticks an Orange in his mouth like this. You know, he started to feel miserable and began to grow weaker and weaker by the minute. Don Lino gets wacked in the head, Al Pimmer, oh ho, you won't see him no more, Stanley Ipkiss, BOOM! BAM!

Oliver never had good Friends in his life, all he had was Mafia Foes like Don Vito.
Mr. Roing: It was 1933, and Anthony Krocker was having his first communion at Oklahoma. Meanwhile, back at New York City, Harold can't get a game in license, but Senator Herman's got one weakness; Don Vito, Jr.
