* AmbiguouslyGay: Louis Renault. He has this perpetual self-pleased, cheery smile and jovial attitude, appears to enjoy being around Rick ''a lot'', and drops HoYay moments every second scene. Granted, he [[InformedAbility seems to enjoy his lots with chicks here and there]], maybe is playing the French stereotype a bit too much -- maybe a ''Series/{{Frasier}}''-like foppish straight, or maybe it's IfItsYouItsOkay, but that's where the "ambiguously" part plays in, isn't?

* ReliableTraitor: Capt. Renault. He openly admits that he "blow[s] with the wind", collaborating with the Germans because they (along with Vichy) are in charge. He clearly loathes Strasser, setting up his HeelFaceTurn.

* BatmanGambit: The outcome of Rick's eventual scheme depended heavily on the character of the people involved.
* BeamMeUpScotty: The "Play it again, Sam" line is never heard in the movie using those exact words. Rick Blaine can't stand to hear "As Time Goes By" played in his cafe since it tends to evoke bitter memories of some kind:
-->'''Ilsa''': Play it once, Sam. For old times' sake.
-->'''Sam''': I don't know what you mean, Miss Ilsa.
-->'''Ilsa''': Play it, Sam. Play "As Time Goes By."
-->'''Sam''': Oh, I can't remember it, Miss Ilsa. I'm a little rusty on it.
-->'''Ilsa''': I'll hum it for you. Da-dy-da-dy-da-dum, da-dy-da-dee-da-dum...
--> (Sam begins playing)
-->'''Ilsa''': Sing it, Sam.
-->'''Sam''': (singing) You must remember this, a kiss is still a kiss, a sigh is just a sigh, the fundamental things apply as time goes by. And when two lovers woo, they still say, "I love you"; on that you can rely, no matter what the future brings--
-->'''Rick''': (rushing up) Sam, I thought I told you never to play--
--> (Rick sees Ilsa)
** Soon afterwards, Rick orders Sam to the song once more to get the bad feelings out of his system:
-->'''Rick''': You know what I want to hear.
-->'''Sam''': No, I don't.
-->'''Rick''': You played it for her, you can play it for me!
-->'''Sam''': Well, I don't think I can remember--
-->'''Rick''': If she can stand it, I can! Play it!

** Sam keeps trying to lie, both to Ilsa and Rick, but he's not very good at it.

* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Ilsa gives Rick one when she’s in his office and refuses to give her the letter, calling him out on his choice to screw over the Resistance just for being snubbed. She quickly apologises, though.
