One of my favorite water nerd film moments is the conversation between Humphrey Bogart and Claude Rains in which Rains’ Inspector Renault tries to get Bogart’s Rick to explain why he came to Casablanca:
Captain Renault: What in heaven’s name brought you to Casablanca?
Rick: My health. I came to Casablanca for the waters.
Captain Renault: The waters? What waters? We’re in the desert.
Rick: I was misinformed.
I love it even more now, after blog commenter Paul pointed out that Casablanca’s coastal climate is particularly wet in winter. It’s not a desert after all.
I was misinformed. (And I love my blog’s readers.)
