Cobb: Inception. Now, before you bother telling me it's impossible, let me.
Eames: No, it's perfectly possible. It's just bloody difficult.
Cobb: Interesting. Because Arthur keeps telling me it can't be done
Eames: Hmm. Arthur. You still working with that stick in the mud?
Cobb: He is good at what he does, right?
Eames: Oh, he's the best but he has no imagination
Cobb: Not like you
Eames: Listen, if you're gonna perform inception, you need imagination.
Cobb: Let me ask you something. Have you done it before?
Eames: We tried it. Uh, we got the idea in place, but it didn't take
Cobb: You didn't plant it deep enough?
Eames: No, it's not just about depth. You need the simplest version of the idea in order for it to grow naturally in your subject's mind. It's a very subtle art. So, what is this idea that you need to plant?
Cobb: We need the heir of a major corporation to dissolve his father's empire
Eames: Well you see right there you have various political motivations and anti-monopolistic sentiments and so forth. But all of that stuff, it's um.... It's really at the mercy of your subject's prejudice, you see? What you have to do is start at the absolute basic.
Cobb: Which is what?
Eames: The relationship with the father. [Cobb gives a look of approval]. Do you have a chemist?
Cobb: No, not yet
Eames: Right. Okay, well, there's a man here, Yusuf. He, uh, formulates his own versions of the compounds
Cobb: Why, don't you take me there?
Eames: Once you've lost your tail. The man at the bar.
Cobb: Cobol engineering. That price on my head, was that dead or alive?
Eames: Don't remember. Let's see if he starts shooting.
Cobb: Run interference. I'll meet you downstairs in the bar in, say, uh, say half an hour?
Eames: Back here?
Cobb: It's the last place they'd suspect
Eames: [Chuckles] All right.
