Peter van Eyck: Lt. Schwegler
Lt. Schwegler : [to Mouche] Stupid. Never ask a big man for a small favor.
Lt. Schwegler : We've been killing the English like flies! Later, we'll kill the flies like the English.
Lt. Schwegler : Our complaints are brief. We make them against the nearest wall.
Lt. Schwegler : [checking his guidebook entry about the hotel] You have a native cook by the name of Berek.
Farid : [nervous] Terek, sir. Terek. Yes, sir. But he ran away this morning. With the British to Alexandria.
Lt. Schwegler : [checking the guidebook] You have a wife.
Farid : Oh, yes, sir. Yes. But *she* run away. Yes, sir.
Lt. Schwegler : With the British to Alexandria?
Farid : [sadly] No, sir. With a Greek to Casablanca.
