get me off the hook


Tessio, one of the Corleone men, is revealed as a traitor who wanted to set up Michael — the new Don — for him to be killed . Now, surrounded by Mike's people, and realizing he's going top be taken away to be killed, he tells Tom — the Corleone lawyer:
Tessio: Tom, can you get me off the hook? For Ol' Times' sake?
Tom: Can't do it, Sally.
And Tession is led away and into a car.
