Claude Rains: Captain Louis Renault
Rick : How can you close me up? On what grounds?
Captain Renault : I'm shocked! Shocked to find that gambling is going on in here.
[a croupier hands Renault a pile of money]
Croupier : Your winnings, sir.
Captain Renault : [sotto voce] Oh, thank you very much.
Captain Renault : Everybody out at once.
Rick : Last night we said a great many things. You said I was to do the thinking for both of us. Well, I've done a lot of it since then, and it all adds up to one thing: you're getting on that plane with Victor where you belong.
Ilsa : But, Richard, no, I... I...
Rick : Now, you've got to listen to me! You have any idea what you'd have to look forward to if you stayed here? Nine chances out of ten, we'd both wind up in a concentration camp. Isn't that true, Louie?
Captain Renault : I'm afraid Major Strasser would insist.
Ilsa : You're saying this only to make me go.
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.
Ilsa : But what about us?
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.
Ilsa : When I said I would never leave you.
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.
[Ilsa lowers her head and begins to cry]
Rick : Now, now...
[Rick gently places his hand under her chin and raises it so their eyes meet]
Rick : Here's looking at you kid.
Major Strasser : Are you one of those people who cannot imagine the Germans in their beloved Paris?
Rick : It's not particularly my beloved Paris.
Heinz : Can you imagine us in London?
Rick : When you get there, ask me!
Captain Renault : Hmmh! Diplomatist!
Major Strasser : How about New York?
Rick : Well there are certain sections of New York, Major, that I wouldn't advise you to try to invade.
Major Strasser : [arriving too late to stop Victor Laszlo from escaping] What was the meaning of that phone call?
Captain Renault : [pointing to the plane] Victor Laszlo is on that plane.
Major Strasser : [after looking at the plane] Why do you stand here? Why don't you stop him?
Captain Renault : Ask Monsieur Rick.
Rick : [sees Strasser begin to move toward the telephone, and draws a gun] Get away from that phone!
Major Strasser : I would advise you not to interfere.
Rick : I was willing to shoot Captain Renault and I'm willing to shoot you.
Major Strasser : [picks up the telephone] Hello?
Rick : Put that phone down!
Major Strasser : Get me the radio tower.
Rick : PUT IT DOWN!
[Strasser draws a gun, he and Rick both fire simultaneously, Strasser falls mortally wounded, shortly afterward, some police arrive on the scene]
Captain Renault : Major Strasser has been shot.
[Renault looks at Rick, Rick gives him a look]
Captain Renault : Round up the usual suspects.
[the police pick up Major Strasser's body and leave, Renault looks over at Rick, who is smiling]
Captain Renault : Major Strasser has been shot... round up the usual suspects.
Captain Renault : By the way, last night you evinced an interest in Señor Ugarte.
Victor Laszlo : Yes.
Captain Renault : I believe you have a message for him?
Victor Laszlo : Nothing important, but may I speak to him now?
Major Heinrich Strasser : You would find the conversation a trifle one-sided. Señor Ugarte is dead.
Ilsa : Oh.
Captain Renault : I am making out the report now. We haven't quite decided yet whether he committed suicide or died trying to escape.
[Rick and Renault discussing Victor Laszlo's chances of escaping Casablanca]
Captain Renault : This is the end of the chase.
Rick : Twenty thousand francs says it isn't.
Captain Renault : Is that a serious offer?
Rick : I just paid out twenty. I'd like to get it back.
Captain Renault : Make it ten. I'm only a poor corrupt official.
Captain Renault : Ricky, I'm going to miss you. Apparently you're the only one in Casablanca with less scruples than I.
Ilsa : Who is Rick?
Captain Renault : Mamoiselle, you are in Rick's! And Rick is...
Ilsa : Who is he?
Captain Renault : Well, Rick is the kind of man that... well, if I were a woman, and I were not around, I should be in love with Rick. But what a fool I am talking to a beautiful woman about another man.
Rick : What makes you think I'd stick my neck out for Laszlo?
Captain Renault : Because, one, you bet 10.000 francs he'd escape. Two, you've got the letters of transit. Don't bother to deny it. And you might want to do it simply because you don't like Strasser's looks. As a matter of fact, I don't like them either.
Rick : [chuckles] They're all excellent reasons.
Captain Renault : Realizing the importance of the case, my men are rounding up twice the usual number of suspects.
Captain Renault : We are very honored tonight, Rick. Major Strasser is one of the reasons the Third Reich enjoys the reputation it has today.
Major Heinrich Strasser : You repeat *Third* Reich as though you expected there to be others!
Captain Renault : Well, personally, Major, I will take what comes.
Captain Renault : [seeing a uniformed French officer talking non-stop to an Italian officer] If he ever gets a *word* in, it'll be a major Italian *victory*.
Captain Renault : [to Rick regarding Ilsa] She was asking about you earlier in a way that made me very jealous...
