Louis, I think this is the start of a wonderful friendship.

In S1E18, Rory gives Tristan some advice: to go out with girls with more substance, like Paris. Rory says, “Louis, I think this is the beginning of a wonderful friendship.” Tristan asks, “Who’s Louis?”

This is a line from the 1942 film “Casablanca” starring Humphrey Bogart, Ingrid Bergman, and Paul Henreid. Casablanca is considered one of the best films of all time. The main character, Rick, played by Bogart, runs a cafe in Casablanca during World War II. Rick is trying to help get a Czech Resistance leader out of the country. He strikes a deal with police officer Louis Renault but ends up threatening Renault at gunpoint to help them. In the end, Renault covers for Rick, and the two of them make plans to leave Morocco and join the French Resistance. At the end of the film, Rick tells Renault, “Louis, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.”
