Ariadne: [to Cobb] When were you in Limbo?...You might have the rest of the team convinced to carry on with this job, but they don't know the truth.
Cobb: Truth? What truth?
Ariandne: The truth that, at any minute, you might bring a freight train through the wall. The truth that Mal is bursting through your subconscious, The truth that as we go deeper into Fischer, we're also going deeper into you. And, I'm not sure we're gonna like what we find.
Cobb: We were working together. We were exploring the concept of a dream within a dream. I kept pushing things. I wanted to go deeper and deeper. I wanted to go further. I just didn't understand the concept that hours could turn into years down there...that we could get trapped so deep that when we...when we would up on the shore of our own subconscious, we lost sight of what was real. We created. We built the world for ourselves. We did that for years. We built our own world.
Ariadne: How long were you stuck there?
Cobb: ...Something like 50 years.
Ariadne: Jesus. How could you stand it?
Cobb: It wasn't so bad at first, feeling like gods.The problem was knowing that none of it was real. Eventually, it just became impossible for me to live like that.
Ariadne: And what about for her?
Cobb: She had locked something away, something deep inside her. A truth that she had once known, but chose to forget. Limbo became her reality.
Ariadne: What happened when you woke up?
Cobb: Well, to wake up from that after years, after decades. To become old souls thrown back into youth like that? I knew something was wrong with her. She just wouldn't admit it. Eventually, she told me the truth. She was possessed by an idea. This one very simple idea that changed everything. That our world wasn't real. That she needed to wake up to come back to reality...that in order to get back home...we had to kill ourselves.
Ariadne: What about your children?
Cobb: She thought they were projections. That our real children were waiting for us up there somewhere.
[Mal yelling to try and convince Cobb they are still dreaming as Cobb carries the children into the next room. "Mal": I'm their mother!. "Cobb": Calm down . "Mal" Don't you think I can tell the difference. "Cobb": If this is my dream, why can't I control this? "Mal": BECAUSE YOU DON'T KNOW YOUR DREAMING.]
Cobb: She was certain there was nothing I could do no matter how much I begged, no matter how much I pleaded. She wanted to do it, but she could not do it alone. She loved me too much, so she came up with a plan on our anniversary.
