Word Origin and History for casablanca
Online Etymology Dictionary, © 2010 Douglas Harper
Casablanca has a classic blend of love interest and international intrigue, and many lines from it are extremely familiar: “Here's looking at you, kid” (Bogart's toast to Bergman), and “Play it once, Sam — for old time's sake.... Play ‘As Time Goes By’” (Bergman's request to the pianist in Bogart's club), which is often misquoted as “Play it again, Sam.”
