Admit it,you don't believe in one reality anymore. So choose.
Choose to be here, choose me.
“Dreams feel real while we’re in them. It’s only when we wake up that we realize something was actually strange.”
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.
Eames: [Shows up while Arthur is in a gunfight] You mustn't be afraid to dream a little bigger, darling.
Arthur: Your subconscious is looking for the dreamer; me. Quick, give me a kiss.
Ariadne: Why is it so important to dream?
Cobb: Because, in my dreams we are together.
Cobb: Inception. Now, before you bother telling me it's impossible…
Eames: No, it's perfectly possible. It's just bloody difficult.
"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? Because you’ll be together”. (Inception, 2010)
“Cobb: I can’t stay with her anymore because she doesn’t exist.
Mal: I’m the only thing you do believe in anymore.
Cobb: I wish. I wish more than anything. But I can’t imagine you with all your complexity, all you perfection, all your imperfection. Look at you. You are just a shade of my real wife. You’re the best I can do; but I’m sorry, you are just not good enough.”
Mal:You remember when you asked me to marry you? You said you dreamt that we'd grow old together.
Cobb:But we did. We did. You don't remember?…I miss you more than I can bear, but…we had our time together. And I have to let go…I have to let you go.
“Do you know what it is to be a lover? Half of a whole?”
"I can’t stay with her anymore because she doesn’t exist."
"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 can’t know for sure. But it doesn’t matter – because you’ll be together."
“She locked away a secret, deep inside herself, something she once knew to be true…but chose to forget.”
— Inception (2010)
Saito: Don't you want to take a leap of faith? Or become an old man, filled with regret, waiting to die alone!
Arthur: Because in a 747, the pilot's up top, and the first class cabin's in the nose, so no one would walk through. But you'd have to buy out the entire cabin. And the first class flight attendant…
Cobb: You're waiting for a train. A train that'll take you far away. You know where you hope this train will take you. But you can't know for sure. Yet it doesn't matter. Now, tell me why?
Cobb: She locked away a secret, deep inside herself, something she once knew to be true… but chose to forget.
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.
