    • Yusuf
      • Yusuf: That many dreams within dreams is too unstable!
    • Saito
      • Saito: Don't you want to take a leap of faith? Or become an old man, filled with regret, waiting to die alone!
      • Saito: You remind me of someone... a man I met in a half-remembered dream. He was possessed of some radical notions.
      • Saito: I'll come back and we'll be young men together again.
      • Saito: [Dying] No room for tourists in these jobs.
    • Professor
      • Professor: It'll take more tha the occasional stuffed animal to convince them they still have a father.
    • Mal
      • Mal: No creeping doubts? Not feeling persecuted, Dom? Chased around the globe by anonymous corporations and police forces, the way the projections persecute the dreamer? Admit it: you don't believe in one reality anymore. So choose. Choose to be here. Choose me.
      • Mal: Do you know what it is to be a lover? Half of a whole?
      • Mal: Pain is in the mind, and judging by the decor we're in your mind, aren't we, Arthur?
      • 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?
      • Mal: You betrayed me, but you can still make amends. You can still keep your promise. We can still be together, right here. In the world we built together.
    • Fischer
      • Fischer: I'm insured against kidnapping for up to 10 million.
      • Fischer: At the end, he called me to his deathbed. He could barely speak; but he took the trouble to tell me one last thing. He pulled me close... and I could only make out... one word: "Disappointed."
      • Fischer: Couldn't somebody have dreamt up a goddamn beach?
    • Eames
      • Eames: What you have to do it start at the absolute basic.
      • Eames: If we are gonna perform Inception then we need imagination.
      • Eames: Your condescension, as always, is much appreciated, Arthur. Thank you.
      • Eames: Great. Thank you. So, now we're trapped in Fischer's mind battling his own private army, and if we get killed, we'll be lost in limbo till our brains turn to scrambled egg.
      • Eames: You mustn't be afraid to dream a little bigger, darling.
    • Cobb
      • Cobb: I think positive emotion trumps negative emotion every time.
      • Cobb: She locked away a secret, deep inside herself, something she once knew to be true... but chose to forget.
      • Cobb: You're asking me for Inception. I hope you do understand the gravity of that request.
      • Cobb: 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.
      • Cobb: Dreams feel real while we're in them. It's only when we wake up that we realize something was actually strange.
      • Cobb: Never recreate from your memory. Always imagine new places!
      • Cobb: I'm going to improvise. Listen, there's something you should know about me... about inception. An idea is like a virus, resilient, highly contagious. The smallest seed of an idea can grow. It can grow to define or destroy you.
      • Cobb: No idea is simple when you have to plant it in someone else's mind.
      • Cobb: They say we only use a fraction of our brain's true potential. Now that's when we're awake. When we're asleep, we can do almost anything.
      • Cobb: I miss you more than I can bear, but we had our time together. I have to let you go.
      • Cobb: The seed that we planted in this man's mind may change everything.
      • Cobb: An idea is like a virus. Resilient. Highly contagious. And even the smallest seed of an idea can grow. It can grow to define or destroy you.
      • Cobb: I know how to find secrets from your Mind, I know all the tricks!
      • Cobb: Downwards is the only way forwards.
      • Cobb: I don't like trains.
      • Cobb: You create the world of the dream. We bring the subject into that dream and fill it with their subconscious.
      • Cobb: What is the most resilient parasite? Bacteria? A virus? An intestinal worm? An idea. Resilient... highly contagious. Once an idea has taken hold of the brain it's almost impossible to eradicate. An idea that is fully formed - fully understood - that sticks; right in there somewhere.
      • Cobb: I knew Inception was possible because I'd done it to my wife.
      • Cobb: The moment's passed. Whatever I do I can't change this moment. I'm about to call out to them. They run away. If I'm ever going to see their faces I've gotta get back home. The real world.
      • Cobb: I can access your mind through your dreams.
    • Arthur
      • Arthur: With the slightest disturbance, the dream's going to collapse.
    • Ariadne
      • Ariadne: Mind telling your subconscious to take it easy?
      • Ariadne: These aren't just dreams, these are memories and you said never to use memories!
      • Ariadne: These aren't just dreams. These are memories. And you said never to use memories.
      • Ariadne: Wait, whose subconscious are we going through, exactly?
      • 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: You mind telling your subconscious to take it easy?
      • 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.
