Play it, Sam. Play 'As Time Goes By.'
- Sam: I never expected to see you again...A lot of water under the bridge.
- Ilsa: Play some of the old songs, Sam... Where is Rick?
- Sam: I don't know. I ain't seen him all night.
- Ilsa: When will he be back?
- Sam: Not tonight no more. He ain't comin'...He went home.
- Ilsa: Does he always leave so early?
- Sam: Oh, he never..., well, he's got a girl up at the Blue Parrot. He goes up there all the time.
- Ilsa: You used to be a much better liar, Sam.
- Sam: Leave him alone, Miss Ilsa. You're bad luck to him.
- Ilsa: Play it once, Sam, for old times' sake.
- Sam: I don't know what you mean, Miss Ilsa.
- Ilsa: [whispered] Play it, Sam. Play As Time Goes By.
- Sam: Why, I can't remember it, Miss Ilsa. I'm a little rusty on it.
- Ilsa: I'll hum it for you. [Ilsa hums two bars. Sam starts to play] Sing it, Sam.
- Sam: [singing] You must remember this
A kiss is just a kiss
A sigh is just a sigh
The fundamental things apply
As time goes by.
And when two lovers woo
They still say, 'I love you'
On that you can rely ,
No matter what the future brings
As Time Goes By.
- Rick: [rushing in] Sam, I thought I told you never to play... [stares at Ilsa]
- Laszlo: This is a very interesting cafe. I congratulate you.
- Rick: And I congratulate you.
- Laszlo: What for?
- Rick: Your work.
- Laszlo: Thank you. I try.
Rick: We all try. You succeed.
Renault: I can't get over you two. She was asking about you earlier, Rick, in a way that made me extremely jealous.
Ilsa: [to Rick] I wasn't sure you were the same. Let's see, the last time we met was -
Rick: La Belle Aurore.
Ilsa: How nice. You remembered. But of course, that was the day the Germans marched into Paris.
Rick: Not an easy day to forget.
Rick: I remember every detail. The Germans wore gray. You wore blue.
Ilsa: Yes. I put that dress away. When the Germans march out, I'll wear it again.
Renault: Ricky, you're becoming quite human. I suppose we have to thank you for that, Mademoiselle.
