May I?
Too bad about those two
German couriers, wasn't it?
They got a lucky break.
Yesterday they were just clerks...
...today they are the honored dead.
You are a very cynical person, Rick,
if you'll forgive me for saying so.
I forgive you.
- Will you have a drink with me?
- No.
I forgot, you never drink with--
I'll have another, please.
You despise me, don't you?
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.
