casablanca reference

EMISON

Marlene saying, “We’ll always have Paris” is not a reference to Emily and Alison’s “sweet Paris” chat. It is a reference to Casablanca, a classic film, where he says to the woman he had a BRIEF romance with, “We’ll always have Paris.” This means that they will always have their memories together but they won’t be able to be together.

Marlene was not giving hope to emison fans, she was hinting that they’re not getting back together.
