Saito: Robert Fischer, heir to the Fischer Morrow energy conglomerate.
Cobb: What's your problem with this Mr. Fischer?
Saito: That's not your concern.
Cobb: Mr. Saito, this isn't your typical corporate espionage. You asked me for inception. I do hope you understand the gravity of that request. Now, the seed that we plant in this man's mind will grow into an idea. This idea will define him. It may come to change... Well, it may come to change everything about him.
Saito: We're the last company standing between them and total energy dominance. And we can no longer compete. Soon, they'll control the energy supply of half the world. In effect, they become a new superpower. The world needs Robert Fischer to change his mind.
Eames: That's where we come in. How is Robert Fischer's relationship with his father?
Saito: Rumor is the relationship is quite complicated.
Cobb: Well, we can't work based solely on rumor, can we?
Eames: Can you get me access to this man here? Browning. Fischer Senior's right-hand man. Fischer Junior's godfather.
Saito: It should be possible, if you can get the right references.
Eames: References are something of a specialty for me, Mr. Saito.
Browning: I'm not smelling settlement here. Take them down.
Eames: Mr. Browning. Maurice Fischer's policy is always one of avoiding litigation.
Browning: Well, shall we voice your concerns with Maurice directly?
Eames: Not sure that's necessary.
Browning: No, no, no. I think we should. How is he? I don't want to bother him unnecessarily, but...
Maurice Fischer: Robert, I told you keep out the damn... Wait. So do it. Get...Never, never. Never do the same as I asked. Leave that. Here.
Browning: Must be a cherished memory of his.
Robert Fischer: I put it beside his bed. He hasn't even noticed.
Browning: Robert... Robert...we need to talk about a power of attorney. I know this is hard, but it's imperative...
Robert Fischer: Not now, Uncle Peter.
Eames: The vultures are circling. And the sicker Maurice Fischer becomes,the more powerful Peter Browning becomes. I've had ample opportunity to observe Browning and adopt his physical presence, study his mannerisms, and so on and so forth. So now in the first layer of the dream, I can impersonate Browning. And suggest concepts to Fischer's conscious mind. Then, when we take him a level deeper...his own projection of Browning should feed that right back to him.
Arthur: So he gives himself the idea.
Eames: Precisely. That's the only way it will stick. It has to seem self-generated.
Arthur: Eames, I am impressed.
Eames: Arthur. Your condescension, as always, is much appreciated, Arthur, thank you.
