A police officer jumps into his squad car and calls the station.
“I have an interesting case here,” he says. “A woman shot her husband for stepping on the floor she just mopped.”

Best Romantic Movies of All Time
Casablanca (1942) Rick and Ilsa will always have Paris, but we’ll always have this great flick. Of all the gin joints, in all the towns, in all the world, Ingrid Bergman walks into Bogie’s. The former lovers reunite and sparks fly. But there happens to be a little skirmish going on called World War II, and frankly, their problems aren’t worth a hill of beans in comparison. In the end, Bergman goes off with her war-hero husband (Paul Henreid) and Bogie exits with his new BFF, played by the incomparable Claude Rains. The film’s famous line “We’ll always have Paris” definitely qualifies as one of the best, most quotable romantic quotes.
