** "Cobb" means "dream" in Sanskrit, Hindi, Urdu, and Punjabi. It was also the name of a gentleman thief in ''Film/{{Following}}'', Nolan's first feature film.
*** The proper pronunciation is 'khwaab', not 'cobb'.

* ExistentialHorror: [[spoiler:The workings of the dreams in the film in general, but especially the fate of Cobb's wife, Malorie. What if you had a dream so vivid that you couldn't tell it apart from reality, and reality therefore ends up seeming like yet another dream to you? So much so that you start viewing death, not as the end of your existence, but as the only way you could truly escape from the dream?]]

When talking to the professor, Cobb mentions that there are legitimate uses for it, but he hasn't really been able to find honest work after [[spoiler:being accused of killing his wife.]]
