Signor Ferrari
Victor Laszlo


Strasser: You know the leaders of the underground movement in Paris, in Prague, in Brussels, in Amsterdam, in Oslo, in Belgrade, in Athens.
Laszlo: Even in Berlin.
Strasser: Yes, even in Berlin. If you will furnish me with their names and their exact whereabouts, you will have your visa in the morning.
Renault: And the honor of having served the Third Reich.
Laszlo: I was in a German concentration camp for a year. That's honor enough for a lifetime.
Strasser: You will give us the names?
Laszlo: If I didn't give them to you in a concentration camp, where you had more persuasive methods at your disposal, I certainly won't give them to you now. And what if you track down these men and kill them? What if you murdered all of us? From every corner of your Republic, thousands would rise to take our places. Even Nazis can't kill that fast.


Ilsa Lund: [in a note to Rick] Richard, I cannot go with you or ever see you again. You must not ask why. Just believe that I love you. Go, my darling, and God bless you. Ilsa

Of all the gin joints in all the towns in all the world, she walks into mine. Ranked #67 in the American Film Institute's list of the top 100 movie quotations in American cinema.

Ilsa: Last night, I saw what has happened to you. The Rick I knew in Paris I could tell him, he'd understand. But the one who looked at me with such hatred - I'll be leaving Casablanca soon and we'll never see each other again. We knew very little about each other when we were in love in Paris. If we leave it that way, maybe we'll remember those days and not Casablanca. Not last night.
Rick: Did you run out on me because you couldn't take it? Because you knew what it would be like, hiding out from the police, running away all the time?
Ilsa: You can believe that if you want to.
Rick: Well, I'm not running away any more. I'm settled now, above a saloon, it's true, but...walk up a flight. I'll be expecting you. All the same, someday you'll lie to Laszlo - you'll be there.
Ilsa: No, Rick. No, you see, Victor Laszlo's my husband and was, even when I knew you in Paris.

Carl: Monsieur Rick, you are getting to be your best customer.

Yvonne: Where were you last night?
Rick: That's so long ago, I don't remember.
Yvonne: Will I see you tonight?
Rick: I never make plans that far ahead.

Renault: Victor Laszlo, you are under arrest on a charge of accessory to the murder of the couriers from whom these letters were stolen. Oh, you're surprised about my friend, Ricky. The explanation is quite simple. Love, it seems, has triumphed over virtue.
Rick: [pointing a gun at Renault] Not so fast, Louis. Nobody's gonna be arrested - not for a while yet.

Strasser: I strongly suspect that Ugarte left the letters of transit with Mr. Blaine. I would suggest you search the cafe immediately and thoroughly.
Renault: If Rick has the letters, he's much too smart to let you find them there.
Strasser: You give him credit for too much cleverness. My impression was that he's just another blundering American.
Renault: But we mustn't underestimate American blundering. I was with them when they blundered into Berlin in 1918.

Louis, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship. Ranked #20 in the "100 Movie Quotes" list

Police officer: To all officers. Two German couriers carrying important official documents murdered on train from Oran. Murderer and possible accomplices headed for Casablanca. Round up all suspicious characters and search them for stolen document. IMPORTANT.

Yvonne: [to Rick] What a fool I was to fall for a man like you.

Strasser: I'm not entirely sure which side you're on.
Renault: I have no conviction, if that's what you mean. I blow with the wind, and the prevailing wind happens to be from Vichy.
Strasser: And if it should change?
Renault: Well, surely the Reich doesn't permit that possibility.
Strasser: You are concerned about more than Casablanca. We know that every French province in Africa is honey-combed with traitors waiting for their chance, waiting, perhaps, for a leader.
Renault: A leader - like Laszlo?
Strasser: Uh huh. I have been thinking. It is too dangerous if we let him go. It may be too dangerous if we let him stay.

We'll always have Paris Ranked #43 in the "100 Movie Quotes" list

Ferrari: I observe that you are in one respect a very fortunate man, Monsieur. I am moved to make one more suggestion, why, I do not know, because it cannot possibly profit me. Have you heard about Senor Ugarte and the letters of transit?
Laszlo: Yes, something.
Ferrari: Those letters were not found on Ugarte when they arrested him.
Laszlo: Do you know where they are?
Ferrari: Not for sure, Monsieur, but I will venture to guess that Ugarte left those letters with Monsieur Rick.
Laszlo: Rick?
Ferrari: He's a difficult customer, that Rick. One never knows what he'll do or why, but it is worth a chance.

Renault: How extravagant you are - throwing away women like that. Some day they may be scarce. Oh, I think now I shall pay a call on Yvonne, maybe get her on the rebound, huh?
Rick: When it comes to women, you're a true democrat.
