* ScarpiaUltimatum: The scene with a young Bulgarian couple trying to buy passage to Lisbon from Captain Renault. He wants either a very large sum of money or sex with the wife. In the end, Rick helps them raise the money cheating to let them win at roulette. In contrast to most examples of this trope, Captain Renault apparently always does keep his word and is willing to take the money if they do happen to have it. It's what lets him keep the 'Affable' in AffablyEvil.

* AsLongAsItSoundsForeign: Annina Brandel (the young Bulgarian woman trying to escape Casablanca with her husband) would be an extremely unlikely name for a real Bulgarian.
** In fact, it's a German name and there is a German-Bulgarian minority.

** Ilsa is in love with her husband Victor, but is willing to abandon him for Rick if that means Rick helps save Lazlo and further [[LaResistance his mission.]]

to:

** Ilsa is in love with both Rick and her husband Victor, Victor. There is no way she can be with both of them, but is willing she doesn't want to abandon him for leave Rick if that means again. She begs Rick helps save to give Lazlo and further [[LaResistance his mission.]]the Letters of Transit so he can escape, in return for Ilsa staying with Rick (or not, she admits [[MoralDilemma she doesn't know what to do]]).

** Rick is in love with Ilsa, but can see quite well how she adores Victor. All of the above considered, he could abandon Victor, take Ilsa away, and everyone would get something they want, at the sacrifice of Victor's fight against the Nazis. As he has the Letters of Transit, he is ultimately the only one who can make the decision. [[spoiler: Rick decides to murder Major Strasser and run off with Captain Renault to join the Free French, [[IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy leaving Victor and Ilsa to escape together]] and carry on the fight.]]

Added DiffLines:

* FriendOrIdolDecision: A three-way, playing into the film's TriangRelations and the fact that there are only two Letters of Transit for the three characters:
** Ilsa is in love with her husband Victor, but is willing to abandon him for Rick if that means Rick helps save Lazlo and further [[LaResistance his mission.]]
** Victor is devoted to his fight against the Nazis, and knows that Ilsa loves him in no small part because of it. All the same, he's willing to give up on both his fight and his marriage to save Ilsa by having Rick [[IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy take her away to safety]].

Added DiffLines:

* GreaterNeedThanMine: As pointed out above, Ilsa and Victor are both willing to give up something they want for the sake of someone they love, and it falls to Rick to make the decision of who has to sacrifice what they want for a loved one. [[spoiler: [[ItWasHisSled Famously]], it's Rick.]]
