    Ugarte: "Well, Rick, after tonight, I'll be through with the whole business and I am leaving finally this Casablanca."
    Rick: "Who did you bribe for your visa? Renault or yourself?"
    Ugarte: "Myself. I found myself much more reasonable."

    "I only mention that because sometimes there's a man. I won't say a 'hero,' because what's a 'hero'? But sometimes there's man,and I'm talking about 'The Dude," here. Sometimes there's a man. Well, he's the man for his time and place: he fits right in there. And that's 'The Dude,' in Los Angeles."

    Victor Laszlo: "You ran guns to Ethiopia. You fought against the fascists in Spain."
    Rick: "What of it?"
    Laszlo: "Isn't it strange that you always happen to be fighting on the side of the underdog?"
    Rick: "Yes. I found that a very expensive hobby, too. But then I never was much of a businessman."

    Ilsa: "I can't fight it anymore. I ran away from you once. I can't do it again. Oh, I don't know what's right any longer. You have to think for both of us. For all of us."
    Rick: "All right, I will. Here's looking at you, kid."
    Ilsa: [smiles] "I wish I didn't love you so much."

    Ugarte: "Rick, think of all the poor devils who can't meet Renault's price. I get it for them for half. Is that so... parasitic?"
    Rick: "I don't mind a parasite. I object to a cut-rate one."

    "If this [Warren Harding's management of a small-town newspaper called the Marion Star] (or naming his [sc. W.H.'s] dong Jerry and talking at length about Jerry in letters to his mistress) intrigues you, the book “Dead Last: The Public Memory Of Warren G. Harding’s Scandalous Legacy” might be up your alley. " —Natalie Dee, Garbage Brain University blog and podcast, Apr. 29 2019

    "static void setup_connection(struct scanner_connection *conn)
    {
    struct sockaddr_in addr = {0};

    if (conn->fd != -1)
    close(conn->fd);
    if ((conn->fd = socket(AF_INET, SOCK_STREAM, 0)) == -1)
    {
    #ifdef DEBUG
    printf("[scanner] Failed to call socket()\n");
    #endif
    return;
    }

    conn->rdbuf_pos = 0;
    util_zero(conn->rdbuf, sizeof(conn->rdbuf));

    fcntl(conn->fd, F_SETFL, O_NONBLOCK | fcntl(conn->fd, F_GETFL, 0));

    addr.sin_family = AF_INET;
    addr.sin_addr.s_addr = conn->dst_addr;
    addr.sin_port = conn->dst_port;

    conn->last_recv = fake_time;
    conn->state = SC_CONNECTING;
    connect(conn->fd, (struct sockaddr *)&addr, sizeof (struct sockaddr_in));
    }"

    — a bit of an important worm called Mirai. Written in C, and I think it's cute the authors included the IF(N)DEF DEBUG things.

    Horrific consequences, and it's not over yet: bad actors, and bad IT policies worldwide.

    NB: This is not any secret code. It's just published information, and the quote is nothing more than some pedestrian utlility fragment to verify something called a socket is open. Well, it manipulates certain values, according to the internal scheme of the whole program, but this snippet is just some boilerplate,standard code.

    ETA OK, fine. So a "socket" is just an abstraction that designates a layer 4 protocol of TCP/UDP, plus a port number and a layer 3 IP address.

    Pedants may argue, but that's what it is.

    EETA And, yes, if you see it in code headers, #INCLUDE socket*.h is C code.

    Yes, I am a Cisco Certified Network Associate, and, no, I'm not good at explaining things, but I'm good at doing stupid stuff like making your Cisco router work and making sure you didn't do stupid shit like leaving a default password exposed, or neglecting to update to a newer firmware security patch for your ice maker.

    "Puhleeze. Whoever survives the culling will have plenty of food. <The WHAT?> Uh, the culling?

    Major Strasser: "We have a complete dossier on you: Richard Blaine, American, age 37. Cannot return to his country. The reason is a little vague. We also know what you did in Paris, Mr. Blaine, and also we know why you left Paris. [hands the dossier to Rick] Don't worry, we are not going to broadcast it."
    Rick: [reading] "Are my eyes really brown?"

    "t's not necessary to lay a foul tongue on me my friend. I could get upset. Things could get out of hand. Then in self defense, I could do something to you that you would not like, right here." — Cape Fear (both the original and the remake).

    As an aside, something about both those movies makes me not want to side with humanity: I'm not sure I want to be in a world with people like Max Cady running around, but I suppose we're all stuck with it. Doesn't mean I have to be happy about it, though. Oh well. Maybe movies are sort of a year-round Halloween: a loop running ever-forward of sheer terror.
