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...

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.
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.
