As a movie, "Casablanca" exists in Toobworld and its many alternate dimensions.  Too many TV characters have cited it in their own shows.

Here are just a few of so many examples......

First off, let's start off with five of the more famous quotes from the movie:

"Round Up The Usual Suspects"
'Flash Forward'
'Mystery Science Theater 3000'
'The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air'
'Ghost Whisperer'
'House, M.D.'
'White Collar'
'The Inbetweeners'

"We'll Always Have Paris"
'Pee-Wee's Playhouse'
'Full House'
'The Nanny'
'Gilmore Girls'
'The West Wing'

"Play it again"
(Technically not in the movie; famously misquoted)

"Here's looking at you, Kid"

Variations on "A beautiful friendship"
[start, beginning, etc.]

And there were so many others I could have chosen from!

Some characters had the movie poster on their wall, as seen in:

'Family Ties'
'Deke Wilson's Mini-Mysteries'
'Curb Your Enthusiasm'
'Sea Change'

The movie is often mentioned by name, such as in:

(The Ustinov Poirot, from the Borderlands)
'Mad Men'

Some characters even imagine they are in the movie:
'That 70's Show'
'Remington Steele'
'Two Guys, A Girl, And A Pizza Place'

As seen in 'Fringe' ("The Abducted")
And finally, the movie can be seen or heard playing (or the title seen on a marquee) during various scenes of:
'Homicide: Life On The Street'
'Gilmore Girls'
'Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles'
'The Mentalist'

And that list never even took into account TV movies!
