a phrase coming from -where else? If you said Mario Puzo's The Godfather you guessed right- meaning, doff me a hat and respect my authority or else...
mother: I am taking over as the Don Corleone of this house; enough is enough. David. you are such a rotten apple. now it's time for you to either kiss Don Corleone's ring, or die.

David: Since I am too late to save your sinking Titanic, I mean my sinking Titanic, what are the consequences.
