Laszlo: Monsieur Blame, I wonder if I coufd talk to you ?
Rick: Go ahead.
Laszlo: Well, is there some other place ? ltis rather confidential, what I have to say.
Rick: Come up to my office.
Laszlo: You must know that it's very important I get out of Casablanca- All righl. But it 's my privi/ege to be one of the leaders of the great movement. You know what l have been doing. You know what it means to the work, to the lives of thousands and thousands of
people that I should be free to reach America and continue my work.
Rick: l'm not interested in politics. The problems of the world are not in my department. l'm a saloon keeper.
Laszlo: That wasn 't always your attitude.
Rick: Wasn't jt ?
Laszlo: My friends in the underground tell me that you have quite a record. You ran guns to Ethiopia. You fought against the Fascists in Spain.
Rick: What of it ?
Laszlo: lsn't it strange that you always happened to be fighting on the side of the underdog ?
Rick: Yes, I found that an expensive hobby, too. But then I never was much of a businessman.
Laszlo: Are you enough of a businessman to appr8ciate an offer of 100, 000 francs ?
Rick:I appreciate it but l don 't accept it.
Laszlo: I'II raise it t0 200, 000.
Rick: My friend, you can make it a million francs or three. My answer would stillbe the same.
Laszlo: There must be some raason why you won't let me have them.
Rick: There is. I suggest that you ask your wife.
Lasz(o: I beg your pardon ?
Rick: I said, ask your wife.
Laszlo: My wife ?
