Arthur: Our ride's on the roof.

Cobb: Right.

Arthur: Hey, are you okay?

Cobb: Yeah. Yeah, I'm fine. Why?

Arthur: Well, down in the dream, Mal showing up.

Cobb: Look, I'm, uh, sorry about your leg. Won't happen again.

Arthur: It's getting worse, isn't it?

Cobb: One apology's all you're getting, all right? Where's Nash?

Arthur: He hasn't shown. You wanna wait?

Cobb: We were supposed to deliver Saito's expansion plans...to Cobol Engineering two hours ago. By now, they know we failed. It's time we disappear.

Arthur: Where you gonna go?

Cobb: Buenos Aires. I can lie low there, maybe sniff out a job when things quiet down. You?

Arthur: Stateside.

Cobb: Send my regards.

Saito: He sold you out. Thought to come to me and bargain for his life. So I offer you the satisfaction.

Cobb: It's not the way I deal with things. What will you do with him?

Saito: Nothing. But I can't speak for Cobol Engineering.

Cobb: What do you want from us?

Saito: Inception. 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 me planting an idea in your head. I say, "Don't think about elephants." What are you thinking about?

Saito: Elephants.

Arthur: Right. But it's not your idea, because you know I gave it to you. The subject's mind can always trace thegenesisof the idea. True inspiration's impossible to fake.

Cobb: That's not true.

Saito: Can you do it?

Arthur: Are you offering me a choice? Because I can find my own way to square things with Cobol.

Saito: Then you do have a choice.

Cobb: Then I choose to leave, sir.

Saito: Tell the crew where you want to go. Hey, Mr. Cobb. How would you like to go home? To America. To your children.

Cobb: You can't fix that. No one can.

Saito: Just like inception.

Arthur: Cobb, come on.

Cobb: How complex is the idea?

Saito: Simple enough.

Cobb: No idea is simple when you need to plant it in somebody else's mind.

Saito: My main competitor is an old man in poor health. His son will soon inherit control of the corporation. I need him to decide to break up his father's empire.

Arthur: Cobb, we should walk away from this.

Cobb: Hold on. If I were to do this, if I even could do it...I'd need a guarantee. How do I know you can deliver?

Saito: You don't. But I can. So do you want to take a leap of faith...or become an old man, filled with regret waiting to die alone? Assemble your team, Mr. Cobb.And choose your people more wisely.
