Casablanca provides the viewer with "a completely furnished world". There is a feeling you get from watching the movie that Rick's Cafe exists beyond the confines of the screen and that the story of Casablanca, the movie, is just one of many stories unfolding simultaneously at Rick's. Sort of like the difference between a videogame with a heavily scripted plot and one that presents the player with an open-ended world. The universe of Casablanca feels like an open-ended world.
Some of its most memorable lines were dubbed in months after primary shooting had ended ...
-If I ever gave you a thought I would.
I stick my head out for nobody. 伏笔。

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

I'm sorry for asking. I forgot we said "no questions".
Well, only one answer can take care of all our questions.
I'm shocked. I found gambling here!
Your winning sir.
What of it? I'm gonna die at Casablanca. It's a great spot for it.
Now if you...
A story without an ending. What about now?
You think of me as a leader of cause, but I'm also a human being.
Everything will be alright. Please trust me.
Yes, I will.
Under the circumstances(you will shoot me), I will sit down.
This gun is pointed right at your heart.
That is my least vulberable spot.
You will regret it. Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but soon and for the rest of your life.
We didn't have, we, we lost it until you came to Casablanca. We got it back last night.
When I said I would never leave you.
And you never will.
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...Here's looking at you, kid.
For your sake, she pretended it wasn't, and I let her pretend.
I'll have to arrest you.
As soon as the plane goes.
目击警察：Round up the usual suspects.
I have the letter of transit. I could use a trip, but it doesn't make any difference about our bet. You still owe me 10,000 francs.
And that 10,000 francs should pay our expenses.
Our expenses? Louis, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
