    Dear all, I need translations of two (rather famous ;) ) sentences:

    xxx
    Someday, and that day may never come, I'll call upon you to do a service for me.

    Please help. :)

    Hi arwyn,

    please remember the following:
    1) always use the search function before opening a thread. Chances are that we have already discussed the topic you are asking about (see for instance "make him an offer he can't refuse" ;) )
    2) please open a separate thread for each topic.
    Thank you for your cooperation.

    This thread remains open for the sentence " Someday, and that day may never come, I'll call upon you to do a service for me."

    From wikiquote:

    Un giorno, e non arrivi mai quel giorno, ti chiederò di ricambiarmi il servizio [...]

    Però la traduzione di wikiquote è sbagliata, perché corrisponde a may that day never come.
    Invece la citazione originale da The Godfather (that day may never come) corrisponde a quel giorno potrebbe non arrivare mai.
    Chissà se l'errore era anche nella versione italiana del film.
