Christopher J. Nolan

“EAMES: Word is, you're not welcome in these parts.
COBB: Yeah?
EAMES: There's a price on your head from Cobol Engineering. Pretty big one, actually.
COBB: You wouldn't sell me out.
Eames looks at Cobb, offended.
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.”
