Victor Laszlo:
I know a good deal more about you than you suspect. I know, for instance, that you're in love with a woman. It is perhaps a strange circumstance that we both should be in love with the same woman. The first evening I came to this café, I knew there was something between you and Ilsa. Since no one is to blame, I - I demand no explanation. I ask only one thing. You won't give me the letters of transit: all right, but I want my wife to be safe. I ask you as a favor, to use the letters to take her away from Casablanca.
Rick:
You love her that much?
Victor Laszlo:
Apparently you think of me only as the leader of a cause. Well, I'm also a human being. Yes, I love her that much.

Transcript:
I know a good deal more
about you than you suspect.
I know that you're in love with a woman.
It's perhaps a strange circumstance...
...that we both should be in love
with the same woman.
The first evening I came into this café...
...I knew there was something
between you and Ilsa.
Since no one is to blame...
...I demand no explanation.
I ask only one thing.
You won't give me the letters of transit.
All right.
But I want my wife to be safe.
I ask you as a favor...
...to use the letters
to take her away from Casablanca.
You love her that much?
Apparently you think of me only
as the leader of a cause.
Well, I am also a human being.
Yes, I love her that much.
- Monsieur Laszlo?
- Yes?
You'll come with us.
We have a warrant for your arrest.
On what charge?
Captain Renault will discuss that
with you later.
It seems that destiny has taken a hand.
You haven't any proof, and you know it.
This isn't Germany or occupied France.
All you can do is fine him and give him
30 days. You might as well let him go now.
I'd advise you not to be too interested
in what happens to Laszlo.
If you were to help him escape--
What makes you think
I'd stick my neck out for Laszlo?
Because, one,
you bet 10,000 francs he'd escape.
Two, you've got the letters of transit.
Don't bother to deny it.
And you might do it simply
because you don't like Strasser's looks.
As a matter of fact,
I don't either.
They're all excellent reasons.
Don't count too much on my friendship.
In this matter I'm powerless.
Besides, I might lose the 10,000 francs.
You're not very subtle,
but you are effective. I get the point.
Yes, I have the letters.
But I intend using them myself.
I'm leaving Casablanca
on tonight's plane. The last plane.
And I'm taking a friend with me.
One you'll appreciate.
- What friend?
- Ilsa Lund.
That ought to put your mind to rest
about my helping Laszlo escape.
