He was delirious but asked for you by name. Show him...
Japanese Security Guard: He was carrying nothing but this...

In the second dream sequence with Dom and Ariadne, Dom cautions Ariadne that her changing the dream world will trigger an automatic response from his sub-conscious to attack the dreamer. How, then, does the "Mr. Charles" gambit work? Simply convincing someone that they are in a dream shouldn't prevent their sub-conscious (which they cannot control) from attacking the dreamer, even if they think the dreamer is there to protect them.
The movie title never appears in the beginning of the movie, but appears three times during the end credits. Once at the beginning, again after the main actors and developers, and once more at the very end.
