    I found this:

    <BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-title">quote:</div><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-content">
    SOLLOZZO (to the waiter)

    Capide? [understand?]

    (then, after the waiter nods, opens the bottle and pours the wine)

    All right.

    (then, to McCluskey)

    I'm gonna speak Italian to Mike.

    McCLUSKEY

    Go ahead...

    SOLLOZZO

    Me dispiace... [I'm sorry...]

    MICHAEL

    Lassa-i ["leave it alone/forget about it"]

    SOLLOZZO

    [Sounds like, in Italian: "What happened to your father was business -- I have much respect

    for your father -- but your father -- his thinking is old fashioned. You must understand why I

    had to do that"...]

    MICHAEL

    [Sounds like, in Italian: "I understand those things..."]

    SOLLOZZO (after the waiter brings McCluskey's veal, then exits)

    [Sounds like, in Italian: "Now let's work through where we go from here... (more)"]

    MICHAEL

    [Something in Italian]...come si diche...? ["How do you say...?"]

    (then, in English)

    What I want -- what's most important to me -- is that I have a guarantee: No more attempts

    on my father's life.

    SOLLOZZO

    What guarantees could I give you, Mike? I am the hunted one! I missed my chance. You

    think too much of me, kid -- I'm not that clever. All I want, is a truce.

    MICHAEL (after a while)

    I have to go to the bathroom. Is that all right?

    McCLUSKEY (while eating)

    You gotta go, you gotta go...

    (then, after Sollozzo begins to frisk Michael as he's standing)

    I frisked him -- he's clean.
