Victor Laszlo is on that plane.

[after looking at the plane]
Why do you stand here? Why don't you stop him?

Ask Monsieur Rick.
Rick:
[sees Strasser begin to move toward the telephone, and draws a gun]
Get away from that phone!
Major Strasser:
I would advise you not to interfere.

I was willing to shoot Captain Renault and I'm willing to shoot you.

[picks up the telephone]
Hello?

Put that phone down!

Get me the radio tower.

PUT IT DOWN!

Transcript:
And what in heaven's name
brought you to Casablanca?
My health.
I came to Casablanca for the waters.
The waters? What waters?
We're in the desert.
I was misinformed.
Excuse me, Monsieur Rick.
A gentleman inside
has won 20,000 francs...
...and the cashier
would like some money.
I'll get it from the safe.
I'm so upset, Rick. You know I--
Forget it, Emil. Mistakes like that
happen all the time.
I'm awfully sorry.
Rick, there will be some excitement
here tonight. An arrest in your café.
- Again?
- This is no ordinary arrest.
A murderer, no less.
If you're thinking of warning him,
don't put yourself out. He cannot escape.
- I stick my neck out for nobody.
- A wise foreign policy.
Could have made the arrest earlier,
at the Blue Parrot.
Out of my regard for you,
we're staging it here.
It will amuse your customers.
Our entertainment's enough.
We're to have an important guest
here tonight.
Major Strasser of the Third Reich, no less.
We want him to be here
when we make the arrest.
A demonstration of the efficiency
of my administration.
I see.
And what's Strasser doing here?
He certainly didn't come here to witness
a demonstration of your efficiency.
