Inception


MAL – COBB
Looks like Arthur’s taste. “Actually, the subject is partial to postwar British painters.”

ARTHUR – ARIADNE
“She’ll need a totem.” What? “So a totem. You need a small object, potentially heavy. Something you can have on you that no one else knows.” Like a coin? “No. It needs to be more unique than that. Like, this is a loaded die. No, I can’t let you touch it. That would defeat the purpose. See, only I know the balance and the weight of this particular loaded die. That way, when you look at your totem you know beyond a doubt that you’re not in someone else’s dream.”

COBB – ARIADNE
“You have two minutes to design a maze that it takes one minute to solve.”

COBB – ARIADNE
“Now, in a dream, our mind continuously does this. We create and perceive our world simultaneously. And our mind does this so well that we don’t even know it’s happening. That allows us to get right in the middle of that process.” How? “By taking over the creating part. Now, this is where I need you. You create the world of the dream.”

ARTHUR – FISHER – COBB
“In your father’s office below the bookshelves is his personal safe. We need the combination.” I don’t know any safe. “That doesn’t mean you don’t know the combination.”
