Inception Romantic Quotes

“If you’re going to perform inception, you need imagination.

You need the simplest version of the idea-the one that will grow naturally in the subject’s mind. Subtle art.”

“ARIADNE: Why are they looking at me?
COBB: Because you’re changing things. My subconscious feels that someone else is creating the world. The more you change things, the quicker the projections converge on you.
ARIADNE: Converge?
COBB: They feel the foreign nature of the dreamer, and attack-like white blood cells fighting an infection.
ARIADNE: They’re going to attack us?
COBB: Just you, actually.”

“COBB: What do you want from us?
SAITO: Inception.
Arthur raises his eyebrows. Cobb is poker-faced.
SAITO: Is it possible?
ARTHUR: Of course not.
SAITO: If you can steal an idea from someone’s mind, why can’t you plant one there instead?
ARTHUR: Okay, here’s planting an idea: I say to you, “Don’t think about elephants.”
(Saito nods)
What are you thinking about?
SAITO: Elephants.
ARTHUR: Right. But it’s not your idea because you know I gave it to you.
SAITO: You could plant it subconsciously-
ARTHUR: The subject’s mind can always trace the genesis of the idea. True inspiration is impossible to fake.
COBB: No, it isn’t.
SAITO: Can you do it?
COBB: I won’t do it.
SAITO: In exchange, I’ll give you the information you were paid to steal.
COBB: Are you giving me a choice? Because I can find my own way to square things with Cobol.
SAITO: Then you do have a choice.
COBB: And I choose to leave.” ~~~ Great Inception Movie Quotes

“MAL: You killed me.
Cobb looks at Mal. Whispers-
COBB: I was trying to save you-I’m sorry.
Mal comes in close to Cobb. Look him over.
MAL: You infected my mind. You betrayed me. But you can make amends. You can still keep your promise. We can still be together… right here. In our world. The world we built together.”

“EAMES: Now, in the dream, I can impersonate Browning and suggest the concepts to Fischer’s conscious mind…
EAMES: (draws a diagram) Then we take Fischer down another level and his own subconscious feeds it right back to him.
ARTHUR: (impressed) So he gives himself the idea.
EAMES: Precisely. That’s the only way to make it stick. It has to seem self-generated.
ARTHUR: Eames, I’m impressed.
EAMES: Your condescension, as always, is much appreciated, Arthur.”

“ARTHUR: It’d have to be a 747.
COBB: Why?
ARTHUR: On a 747 the pilots are up above, first class is in the nose so nobody walks through the cabin. We’d have to buy out the whole cabin, and the first class flight attendant-
SAITO: We bought the airline.
Everyone turns to Saito.
SAITO: It seemed… neater.” ~~~ Great Inception Movie Quotes

ARTHUR: With Mal?
ARIADNE: No. To find Saito.
Arthur looks out at the water below the bridge.
ARTHUR: He’ll be lost…
ARIADNE: No. He’ll be alright.”

ARTHUR: Might? We’ll have to do better than that.
EAMES: Thanks for the contribution, Arthur.
ARTHUR: Forgive me for wanting a little specificity, Eames.”

“ARTHUR: How do we get out once we’ve made the plant?
(to Cobb)
I hope you’ve got something a little more elegant than shooting me in the head like last time.
Arthur tilts back in his chair. Yusuf turns to Cobb.
COBB: A kick.
ARIADNE: What’s a kick?
Eames slips his foot under Arthur’s chair leg. TIPS it- Arthur’s legs SHOOT UP INSTINCTIVELY for balance-
EAMES: That, Ariadne, would be a kick.
COBB: That feeling of falling which snaps you awake. We use that to jolt ourselves awake once we’re done.” ~~~ Great Inception Movie Quotes

YUSUF: Sorry.
The front door OPENS and Eames climbs in, soaked.
EAMES: Bit too much free champagne before takeoff, Yusuf?
YUSUF: Ha bloody ha.”

“ARIADNE: Do you use a timer?
ARTHUR: No, I have to judge it myself. Once you’re all asleep in room 528, I wait ’til Yusuf starts his kick…
ARIADNE: How will you know?
ARTHUR: His music warns me it’s coming, then the van hitting the barrier of the bridge should be unmistakable-that’s when I blow the floor out from underneath us and we get a nice synchronized kick. Too soon, and we won’t get pulled out; too late and I won’t be able to drop us.
ARIADNE: Why not?
ARTHUR: The van will be in free fall. I can’t drop us without gravity.”

“EAMES: Word is, you’re not welcome in these parts.
COBB: Yeah?
EAMES: There’s a price on your head from Cobol Engineering. The pretty big one, actually.

EAMES: ‘Course I would.
COBB: (smiles) Not when you hear what I’m selling.
A ramshackle balcony overlooking a busy street. Eames pours.
COBB: Inception.
Eames’ glass stops halfway to his mouth.
COBB: Don’t bother telling me it’s impossible.
EAMES: It’s perfectly possible. Just bloody difficult.
COBB: That’s what I keep saying to Arthur.
EAMES: Arthur? You’re still working with that stick-in-the-mud?
COBB: He’s a good point man.
EAMES: The best. But he has no imagination. If you’re going to perform inception, you need imagination.
COBB: You’ve done it before?
EAMES: Yes and no. We tried it. Got the idea in place, but it didn’t take.
COBB: You didn’t plant it deep enough?
EAMES: It’s not just about depth. You need the simplest version of the idea-the one that will grow naturally in the subject’s mind. Subtle art.” ~~~ Great Inception Movie Quotes

COBB: Fischer’s. I told him it was Browning’s so he’d come with us as part of our team.
ARTHUR: (impressed) He’s going to help us break into his own subconscious.
COBB: That’s the idea. He’ll think that his security is Browning’s and fight them to learn the truth about his father.”
