“We’ll Always Have Paris.” An ode to Rick and Ilsa’s love in Paris, this iconic line is one for keeps. Here: Ingrid Bergman and Humphrey Bogart on the opening night in 1942.
The final line of this brilliant film was spoken by nightclub owner Rick Blaine (Humphrey Bogart) to collaborationist police boss Captain Louis Renault (Claude Rains) as they leave vanquished Morocco to join the Free French army in West Africa. “Louis, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.”
Rick Blaine: We’ll always have Paris. We didn’t have, we, we lost it until you came to Casablanca . We got it back last night.

But Casablanca also set a noble and inspiring standard at a time of moral equivalence, prodding the United States to enter the war raging in Europe.

He loved Ilsa in Paris. He wanted to marry her on the train they were taking to escape the advancing Germans. She never joined him. Ultimately, Rick’s love for Ilsa is represented by his letting her go away with her husband.
Cuz he wanted to leave.
