Humphrey Bogart: “I am staying here playing it safely away.”
Ingrid Bergman: “No Richard, no what has happened to you. Last night --”.
Humphrey Bogart: “Last night we said a great many things. You said I was to do the thinking for both of us. Well, I've done a lot of it since then, and it all adds up to one thing. You are getting on that plane with Victor where you belong”.
Ingrid Bergman: “But, Richard, no --”
Humphrey Bogart: “Now, you have to got to listen to me. You have any idea, what you'd have to look forward to if you stayed here? Nine chances out of ten we'd both wind up in a concentration camp, isn't that true Louie?”
Louie: I am afraid Major Strasser would insist”.
Ingrid Bergman: “You are saying this only to make me go”.
Humphrey Bogart: “I am saying it because it's true. Inside of us we both know you belong with Victor. You're part of his work, the thing that keeps him going. If that plane leaves the ground and you are not with him, you will regret it. May be not today, may be not tomorrow, but soon and for the rest of your life.
Ingrid Bergman: “What about us?”
Humphrey Bogart: We'll always have Paris.”
