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.

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

If one can't even think about trying to escape from Limbo before the sedation eases (just as Yusuf says), then Cobb can't pretend to do it, because the fact that he is supposed to have fallen there again because of having died drown after 1 minute under the water in the first level indicates 2 minutes in this level equal the 40 years Saito has grown old in Limbo (for in the movie it seems Cobb has spent half the time he did in it), so in "real life" the sedation couldn't have eased when Cobb and Saito kill themselves.
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.
