Cobb: I can't stay with her anymore because she doesn't exist.
Mal: I'm the only thing you do believe in anymore.
Cobb: I wish. I wish more than anything. But I can't imagine you with all your complexity, all you perfection, all your imperfection. Look at you. You are just a shade of my real life. You're the best I can do; but I'm sorry, you are just not good enough.
And I will lead them on a merry chase.Arthur
Ariadne: Why is it so important to dream?
Cobb: Because, in my dreams we are together.

Look at you. You're just a shade, a shade of my real wife. How could I capture all your beauty, your complexity, your perfection, your imperfection, in a dream? Yes, you're the best that I can do. But, I'm sorry, you're just not good enough.Cobb
Ariadne: Are these the 'experiments' you do every night? You're trying to keep her alive, aren't you? You can't just create a prison of memories. Do you really think that could contain her?
Cobb: You were not supposed to see that! This has nothing to do with you!
Ariadne: Nothing to do with me? We're supposed to be sharing dreams, here!
Cobb: Not these. These are my dreams.
Cobb: I came here to tell you... something.
Cobb: Something that... you once knew to be true.
