* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Ilsa gives Rick one when shes 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.

* CrapsackWorld: the movie is more lighthearted about it than most, but it's there. Casablanca is filled with refugees fleeing from war zones or fascist police states, who are now targeted by all sorts of people seeking to exploit them. Leaving for a better place isn't ''impossible,'' but involves either a prohibitive cost that most refugees can't afford (and they often impoverish themselves further by trying to win the money through gambling), or, if you're a woman, sleeping with the local DirtyCop. Organized crime thrives and the authorities are openly corrupt, with even the protagonist having to pay bribes to keep operating. The police shoots people in broad daylight and routinely rounds up large numbers of designated suspects simply for the pretense of efficiency. And all this is ''before'' the Nazis show up and start breathing down everyone's neck.

* TheDon: Signor Ferrari, though a less sinister version than most. He is "the head of all illegal activities in Casablanca," but is never seen harming anyone (he'd like to hire Sam away from Rick and he'd like to take over Rick's cafe, but he doesn't try to threaten or coerce them, only making offers that would be expected from any interested businessman). He's even the one who gives Ilsa and Victor the suggestion that leads to their leaving with the letters of transit (though he ''may'' have had an ulterior motive, see XanatosSpeedChess below).

***In this case the juxtaposition is used to illustrate how flimsy a justification there is for shutting down Rick's Cafe. Compounding the hypocrisy is it's demonstrated the roulette wheel can be rigged, and briefly stated the 'winnings' he earns are a form of indirect bribery for turning a blind-eye to the illegal gambling in the first place.

** "Captain Renault must be getting broad-minded." A gay joke in ''1942''. Immediately followed with an implication that Renault extorts sex from women for exit visas, no less.
*** As Annina has said "My husband is with me too," this is probably intended as ThreesomeSubtext and/or to imply that Renault's women are usually not married.
