The Podfather (Part 1)

A well-known scene from the film 'The Podfather' (Part 1)...Dedicated to a friend who was recently 'hit'. No names, no packdrill.

DON PODLEONE: Nanosera, we know each other for years, but this is the first time you come to me for help. I don't remember the last time you invited me to your blogspot ... even though our wives text each other.
NANOSERA: What do you want of me? I'll give you anything you want, but do what I ask!
DON PODLEONE: And what is that Nanosera?
(Nanosara whispers into the Don's ear.)
DON PODLEONE: No. You ask for too much!
NANOSERA: I ask only for protection!
DON PODLEONE: Your software gave you protection.
NANOSERA: An i for an i...!
DON PODLEONE: But your daughter is still online.
NANOSERA: Then make the spammers suffer as she suffers. How much shall I pay you?
DON PODLEONE: You never think to protect yourself with a firewall. You think it's enough to have McAfee. All right, McAfee protects you, so you don't need a friend like me. But now you come to me and say Don Podleone, you must give me protection. And you don't ask in respect or friendship. And you don't think to call me Podfather. Instead you come to my house on the day I go phishing and you ask me to protect you ...from spammers.
NANOSERA: McAfee has been good to me...
DON PODLEONE: Then install Spamkiller 5.0 with your firewall, the Stinger with the Freescan, Nanosera. But if you come to me with your friendship, your loyalty, then your enemies become my enemies, and then, believe me, they would fear to attack you...
(Slowly, Nanosera bows his head and murmurs.)
NANOSERA: Be my e-pal.
DON PODLEONE: Good. From me you'll get protection.
NANOSERA: Podfather.
DON PODLEONE: Some day, and that day may never come, I would like to call upon you to do me a service in return.
(Don Podleone sits back in his chair and gives a hacking cough)
