"Here's Looking at You, Kid" ~ Huron River
Taken from IMDB trivia on Casablanca: "Here's looking at you, kid" was improvised by Humphrey Bogart in the Parisian scenes and worked so well that it was used later on again in the film. He originally used the same line in Midnight. It is also rumored that during breaks, Ingrid Bergman would play poker with other cast members. Since she was still learning English, Bogart would occasionally watch the game, and he added "Here's looking at you" to her poker repertoire. It is unclear where the line, "Here's looking at you, kid," originated, but it definitely predated both Casablanca and earlier stage work by Bogart. On March 9, 1932 - 10 years before Casablanca - Eddie Cantor signed his name in cement at Grauman's Chinese Theater and wrote, "Here's looking at you, Sid" (referring to Sid Grauman, owner of the theater). Cantor certainly meant it as a take-off on "Here's looking at you, kid", which evidently was a line in circulation at the time.
