The Godfather – Monologue (Kay)

A monologue from the screenplay by Mario Puzo & Francis Ford Coppola


Oh, Michael. Michael, you are blind. It wasn’t a miscarriage. It was an abortion. An abortion, Michael.

Just like our marriage is an abortion. Something that’s unholy and evil. I didn’t want your son, Michael!

I wouldn’t bring another one of you sons into this world! It was an abortion, Michael! It was a son Michael! A son!

And I had it killed because this must all end! I know now that it’s over. I knew it then.

There would be no way, Michael… no way you could ever forgive me not with this Sicilian thing that’s been going on for 2,000 years.
