Casablanca Movie Quotes (1942)

Claude Rains(Captain Louis Renault): Rick, there are many exit visas sold in this café, but we know that you've never sold one. That is the reason we permit you to remain open.
Humphrey Bogart (Rick Blaine):Oh? I thought it was because I let you win at roulette.
Claude Rains(Louis): That is another reason.

Claude Rains(Louis): What in heaven's name brought you to Casablanca?
Humphrey Bogart (Rick): My health. I came to Casablanca for the waters. Captain Claude Rains(Louis):The waters? What waters? We're in the desert.
Humphrey Bogart (Rick): I was misinformed.

Ingrid Bergman (Ilsa Lund): Play it once, Sam. For old times' sake.
Dooley Wilson (Sam): I don't know what you mean, Miss Elsa.
Ingrid Bergman (Ilsa): Play it, Sam. Play "As Time Goes By."

Humphrey Bogart (Rick): You know what I want to hear.
Dooley Wilson (Sam):: No, I don't.
Humphrey Bogart (Rick): You played it for her, you can play it for me!
Dooley Wilson (Sam): Well, I don't think I can remember
Humphrey Bogart (Rick): If she can stand it, I can! Play it!

Humphrey Bogart (Rick): Of all the gin joints in all the towns in all the world, she walks into mine.

Humphrey Bogart (Rick): Here's looking at you, kid.

Ingrid Bergman (Ilsa): A franc for your thoughts.
Humphrey Bogart (Rick): In America they'd bring only a penny, and, huh, I guess that's about all they're worth.
Ingrid Bergman (Ilsa): Well, I'm willing to be overcharged. Tell me.
Humphrey Bogart (Rick): Well, I was wondering...
Ilsa Lund: Yes?
Humphrey Bogart (Rick): Why I'm so lucky. Why I should find you waiting for me to come along.
Ingrid Bergman (Ilsa): Why there is no other man in my life?
Humphrey Bogart (Rick): Uh-huh.
Ingrid Bergman (Ilsa): That's easy: there was. And he's dead.

Ingrid Bergman (Ilsa): You're saying this only to make me go.
Humphrey Bogart (Rick): I'm saying it because it's true. Inside of us, we both know you belong with Victor. You're part of his work, the thing that keeps him going. If that plane leaves the ground and you're not with him, you'll regret it. Maybe not today. Maybe not tomorrow, but soon and for the rest of your life.
Ingrid Bergman (Ilsa): But what about us?
Humphrey Bogart (Rick): We'll always have Paris. We didn't have, we, we lost it until you came to Casablanca. We got it back last night.
Ingrid Bergman (Ilsa): When I said I would never leave you.
Humphrey Bogart (Rick): And you never will. But I've got a job to do, too. Where I'm going, you can't follow. What I've got to do, you can't be any part of. Ilsa, I'm no good at being noble, but it doesn't take much to see that the problems of three little people don't amount to a hill of beans in this crazy world. Someday you'll understand that. Now, now... Here's looking at you kid.

Humphrey Bogart (Rick): Louis, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.

Casablanca Trivia
Casablanca won 3 Academy Awards:
Directing - Michael Curtiz
Best Motion Picture - Warner Bros.
Writing (Screenplay) - Julius J. Epstein, Philip G. Epstein, Howard Koch

Humphrey Bogart was defeated for the best actor award by Paul Lukas for "Watch on the Rhine." Ingrid Bergman wasn't even nominated.

Did you know?
That Casablanca was voted #2 in AFI's 100 Greatest American Movies of All Time?
That Humphrey Bogart was voted #1 Man in AFI's 50 Greatest American Screen Legends?
That Ingrid Bergman was voted #4 Woman in AFI's 50 Greatest American Screen Legends?

That Warner Brothers originally wanted Ronald Reagan and Ann Sheridan to star in a medium budget picture called "Everybody Goes to Rick's?" Deciding instead to capitalize on the rising popularity of Humphrey Bogart, they rethought the project, gave him a new leading lady, Ingrid Bergman, and renamed the movie to Casablanca.

That the script was constantly revised, often by Bogart himself, so that the actors didn't know until the last moment how the story would end. This was especially unsettling to Ingrid Bergman.

Humphrey Bogart is believed to have written the lines, "of all the gin joints in all the world"... and "here's looking at you, kid"
