Realizing the importance of the case, my men are rounding up twice the usual number of suspects.

I don’t mind a parasite. I object to a cut-rate one.

How extravagant you are, throwing away women like that. Some day they may be scarce.

And what in heaven’s name brought you to Casablanca?

My health. I came to Casablanca for the waters.

Waters? What waters? We’re in the desert.

I was misinformed.

I stick my neck out for nobody.

Because, my dear Ricky, I suspect that under that cynical shell you are a sentimentalist.

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.

We’ll always have Paris.

I’m not 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.

She did her best to convince me that she was still in love with me, but that was all over long ago.

Major Strasser’s been shot! … Round up the usual suspects.

Louis, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.

If most of this dialogue doesn’t ring a bell … you haven’t seen Casablanca enough times.
