Rick:
Don't you sometimes wonder if it's worth all this? I mean what you're fighting for.
Victor Laszlo:
You might as well question why we breathe. If we stop breathing, we'll die. If we stop fighting our enemies, the world will die.
Rick:
Well, what of it? It'll be out of its misery.
Victor Laszlo:
You know how you sound, Mr. Blaine? Like a man who's trying to convince himself of something he doesn't believe in his heart.

Transcript:
You know what I've been doing.
You know what it means to the work,
to the lives of thousands of people...
...that I reach America
and continue my work.
I'm not interested in politics.
The problems of the world
are not in my department.
I'm a saloonkeeper.
My friends in the underground tell me
that you have quite a record.
You ran guns to Ethiopia.
You fought against
the fascists in Spain.
What of it?
Isn't it strange you're always
fighting on the side of the underdog?
Yes, I found that
a very expensive hobby.
But then I never was
much of a businessman.
Are you enough of a businessman to
appreciate an offer of 100,000 francs?
- I appreciate it, but I don't accept it.
- 200,000.
My friend, you could make it
a million francs or three.
My answer would still be the same.
There must be some reason
why you won't let me.
There is.
I suggest that you ask your wife.
- I beg your pardon?
- I said, ask your wife.
- My wife?
- Yes.
