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...

When Arthur blows up the elevator in the free-fall sequence, the fire billows away up the elevator shaft. However in free-fall, convection does not occur and therefore fire neither billows nor rises. (It goes without saying that this would have been an extremely challenging effect to film in actual free-fall.)
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.
