Quotes 

  • Cobb : I need to get home. That's all I care about right now.

    Ariadne : Why can't you go home?

    Cobb : Because they think I killed her.

    Ariadne : [silence] 

    Cobb : Thank you.

    Ariadne : For what?

    Cobb : For not asking whether I did.

  • Ariadne : What's happening?

    Arthur : Your subconscious is looking for the dreamer; me. Quick, give me a kiss.

    Ariadne : [She kisses him and then looks around] 

    Ariadne : They're still looking at us.

    Arthur : Yeah, it was worth a shot.

  • Ariadne : Why is it so important to dream?

    Cobb : Because, in my dreams we are together.

  • Arthur : So, once we've made the plant, how do we go out? Hope you have something more elegant in mind than shooting me in the head?

    Cobb : A kick.

    Ariadne : What's a kick?

    Eames : This, Ariadne, would be a kick

    [kicks the leg of the chair Arthur's swinging at] 

    Arthur : [finds his balance and glares at Eames] 

  • Yusuf : Brain function in the dream will be about twenty times to normal. When you enter a dream within that dream, the effect is compounded: it's three dreams, that's ten hours times twen...

    Eames : I'm sorry, uh, maths was never my strong subject. How much time is that?

    Cobb : It's a week the first level down. Six months the second level down, and... the third level...

    Ariadne : ...is ten years! Who would wanna be stuck in a dream for ten years?

    Yusuf : Depends on the dream.

  • Ariadne : Why are they all looking at me?

    Cobb : Because my subconscious feels that someone else is creating this world. The more you change things, the quicker the projections start to converge on you.

    Ariadne : Converge?

    Cobb : It's the foreign nature of the dreamer. They attack like white blood cells fighting an infection.

    Ariadne : They're going to attack us?

    Cobb : No. Just you.

  • Cobb : You create the world of the dream, you bring the subject into that dream, and they fill it with their subconscious.

    Ariadne : How could I ever acquire enough detail to make them think that its reality?

    Cobb : Well dreams, they feel real while we're in them, right? It's only when we wake up that we realize how things are actually strange. Let me ask you a question, you, you never really remember the beginning of a dream do you? You always wind up right in the middle of what's going on.

    Ariadne : I guess, yeah.

    Cobb : So how did we end up here?

    Ariadne : Well we just came from the a...

    Cobb : Think about it Ariadne, how did you get here? Where are you right now?

    Ariadne : We're dreaming?

    Cobb : You're actually in the middle of the workshop right now, sleeping. This is your first lesson in shared dreaming. Stay calm.

  • Cobb : [about Mal]  She had locked something away, something deep inside her. The truth that she had once known, but... she chose to forget. Limbo became her reality.

    Ariadne : What happened when you woke up?

    Cobb : To wake up from that after, after years, after decades... after we'd become old souls thrown back into youth like that... I knew something was wrong with her. She just wouldn't admit it. Eventually, she told me the truth. She was possessed by an idea, this one, very simple idea, that changed everything. That our world wasn't real. That she needed to wake up to come back to reality, that, in order to get back home, we had to kill ourselves.

  • Ariadne : Cobb can't build anymore, can he?

    Arthur : I don't know if he can't, but he won't. He thinks it's safer if he doesn't know the layouts.

    Ariadne : Why?

    Arthur : He won't tell me. But I think it's Mal.

    Ariadne : His ex-wife?

    Arthur : No, not his ex.

    Ariadne : They're still together?

    Arthur : No, she... she's dead. What you see in there is just his projection of her.

    Ariadne : What was she like in real life?

    Arthur : She was lovely.

  • Mal : What are you doing here?

    Ariadne : My name is...

    Mal : I know who you are. What are you doing here?

    Ariadne : I'm just trying to understand...

    Mal : How could you understand? Do you know what it is to be a lover? To be half of a whole?

    Ariadne : No...

    Mal : I'll tell you a riddle. You're waiting for a train. A train that will take you far away. You know where you hope this train will take you; but you don't know for sure. But it doesn't matter. How can it not matter to you where that train will take you?

    Cobb : Because you'll be together.

  • [Saito has been shot in the chest] 

    Cobb : How's he doing?

    Ariadne : He's in a lot of pain.

    Cobb : When we get down to the lower levels, the pain will be less intense.

    Ariadne : And if he dies?

    Cobb : Worst case scenario? When he wakes up, his mind is completely gone.

    Saito : Cobb. I'll still honor the arrangement.

    Cobb : I appreciate that, Saito, but when you wake up, you won't even remember that we had an arrangement. Limbo's gonna become your reality. You're gonna be lost down there so long that you're gonna become an old man.

    Saito : Filled with regret.

    Cobb : Waiting to die alone.

    Saito : No. I'll come back. And we'll be young men together again.

  • Arthur : So, a totem. It's a small object, potentially heavy, something you can have on you all the time...

    Ariadne : What, like a coin?

    Arthur : No, it has to be more unique than that, like - this is a loaded die.

    [Ariadne reaches out to take the die] 

    Arthur : Nah, I can't let you touch it, that would defeat the purpose. See only I know the balance and weight of this particular loaded die. That way when you look at your totem, you know beyond a doubt you're not in someone else's dream.

  • Ariadne : That's some subconscious you've got on you, Cobb! She's a real charmer!

    Arthur : Oh, I see you've met Mrs Cobb.

  • [creates a whole new location out of two mirrors] 

    Cobb : Very impressive.

    [notices Mal; flashback of himself and Mal on the same bridge] 

    Cobb : I know this bridge. This place is real, isn't it?

    Ariadne : Yeah, I cross it everyday on the way to the college.

    Cobb : Never recreate places from your memory. Always imagine new places.

    Ariadne : Well, you gotta draw from stuff you know, right?

    Cobb : Only use details, a street lamp or a phone booth, never entire areas.

    Ariadne : Why not?

    Cobb : Because building a dream from your memory is the easiest way to lose your grasp on what's real and what is a dream.

    Ariadne : Is that what happened to you?

    [grabs her arm] 

    Cobb : Hey listen to me. This has nothing to do with me. Understand?

    Ariadne : Is that why you need me to build your dreams?

  • Arthur : Where were you? What happened to you?

    Cobb : Got blocked by a freight train.

    Arthur : [to Ariadne]  Why would you put a train course in the middle of a downtown intersection?

    Ariadne : Why, I didn't.

    Arthur : Where did it come from?

    Cobb : Let me ask you a question, why the hell were we ambushed, huh? Those were not normal projections. They've been trained, for God's sakes!

    Arthur : You're right.

    Ariadne : How could they be trained?

    Arthur : Fischer's had an extractor teach his subconscious to defend itself, so, his subconscious has militarized. It should have shown in the research. I'm sorry.

  • Ariadne : These aren't just dreams. These are memories. And you said never to use memories.

    Cobb : I know I did.

    Ariadne : You're trying to keep her alive. You can't let her go.

    Cobb : You don't understand. These are moments I regret, the memories that I have to change.

  • Ariadne : You mind telling your subconscious to take it easy?

  • Ariadne : You might have the rest of the team convinced to carry on with this job, but they don't know the truth.

    Cobb : Truth? What truth?

    Ariadne : The truth that at any minute, you might bring a freight train through the wall. The truth that Mal is bursting through your subconscious. And the truth that as we go deeper into Fischer, we're also going deeper into you. And... I'm not sure we're gonna like what we find.

  • Ariadne : I guess I thought the dream-space would be all about the visual, but it's more about the feeling. My question is what happens when you start messing with the physics of it.

  • Ariadne : Won't you tell me anything about this first?

    Cobb : Before I describe the job I have to know you can do it.

    Ariadne : Why?

    Cobb : It's not, strictly speaking, legal.

  • Arthur : [Getting out of the water after the kicks]  What happened?

    Ariadne : Cobb stayed.

    Arthur : With Mal?

    Ariadne : No, to find Saito.

    Arthur : He'll be lost.

    Ariadne : No he'll be all right.

  • Cobb : You create the world of the dream. We bring the subject into that dream and fill it with their subconscious.

    Ariadne : How could I ever acquire enough detail to make them think that it's reality?

    Cobb : Well, dreams, they feel real while we're in them right? Its only when we wake up then we realize that something was actually strange.

  • Ariadne : [contemplating her totem]  An elegant solution for keeping track of reality.

  • Ariadne : Cobb, I'm coming with you.

    Cobb : I promised Miles...

    Ariadne : The team needs someone who understands what you're struggling with. And it doesn't have to be me, but then you have to show Arthur what I just saw.

    Cobb : [to Saito]  Get us another seat on the plane.

  • Professor : Mr. Cobb has a job offer he would like to discuss with you.

    Ariadne : Like a work placement?

    Cobb : Not exactly.

  • Ariadne : These aren't just dreams, these are memories and you said never to use memories!

  • Arthur : Cobb said you'd be back.

    Ariadne : I tried not to come, but...

    Arthur : But there's nothing quite like it.

    Ariadne : It's just... pure creation.

  • Ariadne : My subconscious seems polite enough.

    Arthur : Well wait, it'll turn ugly. No one wants to feel someone else messing around their mind.

  • Ariadne : Do you think you can just build a prison of memories to lock her in? Do you really think that that's gonna contain her?

  • Ariadne : I just want to understand.

  • Cobb : You shouldn't be here.

    Ariadne : I just wanted to see what kind of tests you're doing on your own every night.

    Cobb : This has nothing to do with you.

    Ariadne : This has everything to do with me. You've asked me to share dreams with you.

    Cobb : Not these. These are my dreams.

  • Ariadne : Why are they all looking at me?

    Cobb : Because my subconscious feels that someone else is creating this world. The more you change things, the quicker the projections start to converge on you.

    Ariadne : Converge?

    Cobb : They sense the foreign nature of the dreamer. they attack like white blood cells fighting an infection.

    Ariadne : What? They're going to attack us?

    Cobb : No, no.

    [quietly; almost to himself] 

    Cobb : Just you.

    [creates a new bridge over the street] 

    Cobb : This is great, but I'm telling you, if you keep changing things...

  • Ariadne : [wakes up after being stabbed by Mal in a dream]  Why... why wouldn't I wake up?

    Arthur : 'Cause there was still some time on the clock and you can't wake up from within a dream unless you die.

  • Ariadne : [Confused]  Wait, whose subconscious are we going into exactly?

  • Cobb : You got the basic layout. Bookstore, cafe, almost everything else is here too.

    Ariadne : Who are the people?

    Cobb : Projections of my subconscious.

    Ariadne : Yours?

    Cobb : Yes. Remember, you are the dreamer, you build this world. I am the subject, my mind populates it. You can literally talk to my subconscious. That's one of the ways we extract information from the subject.

    Ariadne : How else do you do it?

    Cobb : By creating something secure, like a bank vault or a jail. The mind automatically fills it with information it's trying to protect. Understand?

    Ariadne : Then you break in and steal it?

    Cobb : Well...

    Ariadne : I guess I thought that the dream space would be all about the visual. But it's more about a feel of it. My question is what happens when you start messing with the physics of it all...?

    [folds city on top of itself] 

    Ariadne : It's something, isn't it?

    Cobb : Yes, it is.

  • Ariadne : Cobb! Wake me up! Wake me up!

  • Ariadne : Wait, whose subconscious are we going through, exactly?

  • Ariadne : Mind telling your subconscious to take it easy?
