** 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.

Added DiffLines:

* It's also brilliance that Remy distinctly chose a simple, but immaculately prepared, dish for Ego. Ego's the judge, jury, and executioner of restaurants all over Paris. He's probably been served the fanciest, most complex dishes the kitchens can cook up in an attempt to impress him. Ego is expecting this. Ego will not be impressed by any over the top attempt at culinary wizardly ''because'' he is expecting this. But give him the simplest, most wonderful "peasant food" in the world and that is going to subvert his expectation enough to pay attention.

to:

* The inconsequential fighting/kissing couple that Remy briefly sees in the beginning actually do mirror Linguini and Colette's first kiss (although Colette's reaching for pepper spray is more subtle). In fact, that first couple may have been where Rémy got the idea.

** Plus, it's not outside the realm of possibility that Remy could find a mate of his own and sire a few heirs, or at the very least take up an apprentice.
