better covered under Non Violent Initial Confrontation.
* ActionFilmQuietDramaScene: Lots, actually, but the scene where Vincent and Neil have a coffee and discuss their lives is probably one of the most iconic in cinema. It helps that it's the first time De Niro and Pacino appeared in the same scene together in a film (they did appear in the second ''Godfather'' movie, just no shared scenes, as De Niro was playing a younger Vito Corleone in flashbacks set in the 1910s while Pacino played Michael Corleone in the 1950s scenes).
