A thief, who steals corporate secrets through the use of dream-sharing technology, is given the inverse task of planting an idea into the mind of a CEO.
Except for Dom Cobb, Robert Fischer, and Eames, every other person working in the extraction job, including Saito, are never called by his or her second name in the whole film.
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...
Saito: Are you here to kill me?
On the flight from Sydney to LAX, a flight attendant gives Cobb a white I-94 immigration form, for people coming to the US on a visa. US citizens only need to fill out a smaller blue customs declaration form. Cobb clearly declines the white form. The flight attendant also offers Fischer an I-94. He takes it and sets it down. Fischer is an Australian citizen; his passport is visible when he sits down and Cobb looks at it. Australia is a member of the Visa Waiver Program, so Australians do not need a visa to visit the US. However, flight attendants regularly give immigration forms to passengers who don't need them. Plus, depending on Fischer's position in his father's company, his visit could require a B1 (visitor for business), L1 (intra-company transferee), or E1/E2 (treaty trader/investor) visa.
At the end of the credits Édith Piaf's "Non, Je Ne Regrette Rien" plays at normal speed, then slows down to the speed it was at the beginning of the film during Hans Zimmer's score and throughout the movie. Then we see the title stop in the center of the screen as the song ends.
