Here is the best I could find :

SOLLOZZO: “I’m sorry…”

MICHAEL: “Leave it alone.” ( or ) “Forget about it.”

SOLLOZZO: “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: “I understand those things…”

[Waiter brings McCluskey's veal, then exits.]

SOLLOZZO: “Now let’s work through where we go from here.”

MICHAEL: “How do you say… ?” [Then Michael returns to speaking English.]

[After Michael returns from the bathroom]

SOLLOZZO: “Everything all right? I respect myself, understand, and cannot allow another man to hold me back. What happened was unavoidable. I had the unspoken support of the other Family dons. If your father were in better health, without his eldest son running things, no disrespect intended, we wouldn’t have this nonsense. We will stop fighting until your father is well and can resume bargaining. No vengeance will be taken. We will have peace, but your Family should interfere no longer.”
