Poor devils

[Ugarte gives letter of transit to Rick for safe keeping]

Rick, I hope you're more impressed with me, now? Now, if you'll excuse me, I'll share my luck with your roulette wheel.
[Starts to walk away]

[stands up; Ugarte stops]
Just a moment. I heard a rumor those two German couriers were carrying letter of transit.
Huh? Oh, huh, I heard that rumor too. Poor devils.
You're right, Ugarte. I *am* a little more impressed with you.
[Rick exits casino]

If I gave you any thought,
I probably would.
But why?
Do you object
to the kind of business I do?
But think of all those poor refugees who
must rot here if I didn't help them.
That's not so bad. Through ways of
my own, I provide them with exit visas.
For a price, Ugarte. For a price.
But think of all the poor devils
who can't meet Renault's price.
I get it for them for half.
Is that so parasitic?
I don't mind a parasite.
I object to a cut-rate one.
Well, after tonight I will be through
with the whole business.
And I'm leaving, finally,
this Casablanca.
Who did you bribe for your visa?
Renault or yourself?
I found myself much more reasonable.
Look, Rick.
Know what this is?
Something that even you
have never seen.
Letters of transit signed
by General de Gaulle.
Cannot be rescinded.
Not even questioned.
One moment.
Tonight I'll be selling those
for more money than I ever dreamed of.
