Inception (2010) Poster


Ken Watanabe: Saito



  • Arthur : It would have to be a 747.

    Cobb : Why is that?

    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...

    Saito : I bought the airline.

    [Everybody turns and stares at him. Saito just shrugs] 

    Saito : It seemed neater.

  • Saito : Don't you want to take a leap of faith? Or become an old man, filled with regret, waiting to die alone!

  • Saito : Have you come to kill me? I've been waiting for someone...

    Cobb : Someone from a half remembered dream.

    Saito : Cobb? Impossible. We were young men together. I'm an old man.

    Cobb : Filled with regret...

    Saito : Waiting to die alone...

    Cobb : I've come back for you... to remind you of something. Something you once knew...

    [the top spins without end] 

    Cobb : That this world is not real.

    Saito : To convince me to honor our arrangement.

    Cobb : To take a leap of faith, yes. Come back... so we can be young men together again. Come back with me...

    [Saito reaches for the gun] 

    Cobb : Come back...

  • Cobb : What do you want?

    Saito : Inception. Is it possible?

    Arthur : Of course not.

    Saito : If you can steal an idea, why can't you plant one there instead?

    Arthur : Okay, this is me, planting an idea in your mind. I say: don't think about elephants. What are you thinking about?

    Saito : Elephants?

    Arthur : Right, but it's not your idea. The dreamer can always remember the genesis of the idea. True inspiration is impossible to fake.

    Cobb : No, it's not.

  • [Saito has been shot in the chest] 

    Cobb : How's he doing?

    Ariadne : He's in a lot of pain.

    Cobb : When we get down to the lower levels, the pain will be less intense.

    Ariadne : And if he dies?

    Cobb : Worst case scenario? When he wakes up, his mind is completely gone.

    Saito : Cobb. I'll still honor the arrangement.

    Cobb : I appreciate that, Saito, but when you wake up, you won't even remember that we had an arrangement. Limbo's gonna become your reality. You're gonna be lost down there so long that you're gonna become an old man.

    Saito : Filled with regret.

    Cobb : Waiting to die alone.

    Saito : No. I'll come back. And we'll be young men together again.

  • Saito : [thinking it's Eames shape shifted into Browning]  Hey, I see you've changed.

    Peter Browning : [confused]  Sorry?

    Eames : [appears in the background and silently warns Saito it's not him] 

    Saito : Ahh... I'm sorry. I mistook you for a friend.

    Peter Browning : Well, good-looking fellow, I'm sure.

    Eames : That's Fischer's projection of Browning. Let's follow him and see how he behaves.

    Saito : Why?

    Eames : Because how he acts will tell us if Fischer is starting to suspect him just the way we want him to.

  • Saito : You remind me of someone... a man I met in a half-remembered dream. He was possessed of some radical notions.

  • Cobb : I came here to tell you... something.


    Cobb : Something that... you once knew to be true.

    Saito : [remembering]  Impossible...

  • Cobb : If I get on this plane and you don't honor our agreement, when we land, I go to jail for the rest of my life.

    Saito : Complete the job en route. I make one phone call from the plane. You'll have no trouble getting through Immigration.

  • Saito : I'll come back and we'll be young men together again.

  • [first lines] 

    Saito's Attendant : He was delirious but asked for you by name. Show him...

    Japanese Security Guard : He was carrying nothing but this...


    Japanese Security Guard : And this...

    [spinning top] 

    Saito : Are you here to kill me?

  • Saito : [Dying]  No room for tourists in these jobs.

  • Saito : You remind me of someone... a man I met in a half-remembered dream. A man possessed of some radical notions.
