** Then, before Fischer Jr.'s father dies, he has his son open the safe containing his most prized possession: the pin-wheel he gave his son as a child.
** Not so heartwarming once you realize that the whole thing is a lie, designed to help Saito's business domination. Then again lying people into heartwarming is Nolan's trademark.
*** Does that really matter? He'll still continue his life feeling a lot better about his father, who cares if it was true or not?

** The coup de grace on the scene is Cillian Murphy's delivery. A perfect, red-faced, choking-back-[[InelegantBlubbering Inelegant-Tears]] face that is so heartrendingly relatable that you'd think it was his real father that had died.

** When Cobb finally wakes up in the plane, the camera shows Arthur and Ariadne, looking at him and smiling as if to say "well-done", then Saito, waking up... and immediately reaching for the phone to make that one call. You feel Cobb's relief as your own.
** Then in the airport, at the customs, Cobb has to wait only a couple of apprehensive moments before the guard stamps his passport and says: "Welcome home, Mr. Cobb."

* Cobbs line about positive emotions trumping negative emotions, he just states it like scientific fact.
** Related FridgeBrilliance: Cobb knows that an inception can grow until it becomes part of the host's personality, and he doesn't want Fischer to suffer because of him.

* Meta-example: Nolan has ''no plans'' to explain the ending what so ever. Even if he did give his own interpretation, he said he was probably being biased. And why? Because he wants the audience to give their own interpretations. Now that is amazing and kind for someone to let his own audience (and arguably his fans) come up with their own theories about the ending.

* A sort of FridgeBrilliance sets in when you realize that Dom and Mal lived with each other essentially for a lifetime inside their dream world. Even after getting back to reality, they're still deeply in love with each other and want to spend ''another'' lifetime together! That makes Dom and Mal's marriage one of the happiest this Troper has ever seen, [[TearJerker and makes what eventually happens all the more tragic]].
