Added DiffLines:

* Colette briefly references the hardships of being a female chef, and how it's forced her to have to be especially harsh in order to be taken seriously at all in such a field. These tidbits of her life explain a lot more of her backstory and actions than you may think.
** She has a strong belief in Gusteau's motto: "anyone can cook". This is very likely fueled by her own perseverance and eventual success at becoming a chef, and could even be what motivated her in her earlier years and brought her to the restaurant in the first place.
** She aids Linguini, and later Remy, because she doesn't want them to have to face the same obstacles she did.
** [[spoiler: When she quits upon discovering that Linguini is a fraud, she spots a Gusteau's cook book behind a shop window, with his famous quote as the title. This fuels her decision to return and help Linguini, because aside from reminding her of Linguini and Remy's cooking aspirations as compared to her own, it reminds her of her passion for working at the restaurant and how far she had come to get to that point.]]

* This is FridgeHorror only for oenophiles. The 1961 Chateau Latour Skinner gives to Linguini is an exceptionally rare vintage. That one bottle would likely sell at auction for several thousand dollars. And he uses it to attempt to loosen the tongue of an unappreciative amateur.

** This is actually addressed in one of the film's accompanying short films, which is called "Your Friend the Rat." In this short, Remy says that lab rats are "helping advance science." He also mentioned pet rats and didn't appear to send any negative connotations about it.

** Actual pet rats don't ''hate'' their cages, because their cages are their home and their territory. A rat that's allowed to free-roam will often rush back to its cage if it's startled or upset.

* Even though Skinner seems to get the last laugh at the end by [[spoiler:getting Gusteau's closed down for failing a health inspection]], he did get his commupance, in a way. From the public's point of view, Skinner knew that his restaurant had a rat infestation but covered it up, and [[spoiler:when he lost the restaurant to Linguini, he called the health inspector on Gustau's just to spite him.]]

* If rats and humans have the same life expectancies in Ratatouille as in Real Life, then the [[MayflyDecemberFriendship friendship]] between Linguini (human) and Rémy (rat) cannot last for more than a few years. What will [[LethalChef Linguini]] do after he no longer has Rémy to be the cooking genius?

* Colette's professional cooking instruction includes the decree, "You cannot be Mommy." But in the end, what wins over Anton is a meal that reminds him of what his mother used to make when he was a boy.

\n* Overlaps with FridgeHorror a bit, but remember how Gusteau make a big spiel in one of his interviews of how important it is for a creator to accept failure. So why does an unfavorable review end up literally killing him? Because creative people are their own harshest critics!

* Pet rats and lab rats exist in this universe, where presumably all rats are sentient. Imagine what that must be like for them, either being experimented on or kept in a cage for no reason.
