But what about us?

6 December 2017

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?

Capt. Louis 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.

From Casablanca

  1. My absolute favorite movie of all time, and a tale my husband and I have shared since we met. The story, the dialogue…just phenomenal from a storytelling aspect. Thanks for sharing.

  2. A high point of American cinema.

  3. One of my favorite movies. Outstanding!

  4. Bravo! 😀

  5. Bogart is awesome. When you just read the words, you can see the empty canvas on the page. Watch the way he delivers these lines.

    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?

  6. How can you not include the final scene?

  7. Isn’t that the part they ad-libbed?

    Take care

  8. This is one of the tightest screenplays ever written. Hardly a single line is unnecessary or doesn’t move the story along in one way or another.

  9. I love that movie.

  10. The line was supposed to be “Here’s luck to you, kid,” but Bogart flubbed the line and they liked it enough to keep it in.

    In the “what might have been” department, they’d originally wanted Ronald Reagan to play Rick…

  11. Just reading the lines gives me goosebumps. Definitely the best movie of all time.
