Everybody Comes to Rick's, or "Play it Sam"

So, as everybody knows that Casablanca (or as the original play was called, Everybody Comes to Rick's) was filmed on location in Morocco, er, well, maybe now. So, in honor of the great film and my visit to Casa (as we natives call it), here are some of my favorite quotes from the film:

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

2013.05.24-IMG_2381 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.

Rick: Of all the gin joints, in all the towns, in all the world, she walks into mine

Captain Renault: Round up the usual suspects.

Renault: What in heaven's name brought you to Casablanca?
Rick: My health. I came for the waters.
Renault: The waters? What waters? We're in the desert.
Rick: I was misinformed.
