Susan has seen The Godfather a thousand times, and every scene is her favorite, but she really loves the ones with Robert DeNiro and old New York; the dirt, immigrants, tenements, carts of fruit, fires in trash cans, crying babies and saints being paraded down the street.

Susan loves when the young Vito Corleone stalk the pompous Don Fannuci over the rooftops then waits for him in the shadow of a doorway with a towel wrapped around the gun. BOOM! Skinny Vito shoots the fat don in the heart, then in the face. But, that's not enough so he shoves the gun in his mouth and pulls the trigger then uses his foot to knock him over.

After that Vito is like King Sh*t around the neighborhood, vendors give him bags of oranges 'my gift', they say, old ladies come to him with their problems and the rest fall all over themselves to stay on his good side.

Susan never passes The Godfather on TV without stopping to watch it even if she had other things to do.

I love it when a movie stops me in my tracks. I will always watch The Departed whenever it runs.

Sometimes The Cupcakes use language from The Godfather in their everyday life.

Oh my gosh, this mama just typed in your blog by hand because I was wondering what happened to you. apparently twisted susan didn't get transferred when google reader shut down. I've never seen the godfather and doubt I have the patience for it now, but I did enjoy the deer hunter, and was brought up watching terms of endearment and beaches, both of which I could practically recite by memory.
