** The shot at the end of the speech, when Ego [[spoiler: refers to him as the "finest chef in France"]] as Remy watches the sun rise.

* The quiet little moment immediately beforehand when Ego tastes the ratatouille and flashes back to his mother's cooking. When you see him for the first time, he's this cold, snide, hard, and impossible to please boogie man. Under all of that though? Buried deep, he was someone who loved food. Someone who once lived to experience, to taste and explore. He had the same fire that Remy has, but after years of criticizing, of making food a job, everything he enjoyed was naught but ashes in his mouth. It took something simple, just a simple peasant dish, something he'd probably not tasted in DECADES, to rekindle his heart. All the fancy glitz in the world couldn't do that.

** Horst in particular pauses in front of Linguini [[spoiler:before everyone starts leaving. The look on his face is disappointment. He was expecting Linguini to be every bit as great as expecting... getting the truth clearly felt like a betrayal to him.]]

* The subversion of Linguini's attempt of the RousingSpeech, where instead of banding together after Linguini's big reveal, [[spoiler:everyone decides to up and quit in disgust. The look on Colette's face as she holds herself from delivering a beatdown is especially heartbreaking.]]

** Shortly before, the whole staff moves to kill Remy where he stands without a second though, and what does he do? He closes his eyes in anticipation. And this is following his IAmWhatIAm epiphany moment, meaning that he knows that returning to the kitchen will get him killed instantly, but at least he can [[FaceDeathWithDignity go out with the comfort of knowing exactly who he is]].

** ^ That right there was a crowning moment of TVTropes heartwarming.



** Ego's grand finale line: [[spoiler:SURPRISE ME!]], because, man, weren't we all.

* The moment when [[spoiler: Linguini lets Remi out of the jar and Remi just runs away.]] Sure, we know a few seconds later that [[spoiler: he comes back, but that moment of sadness for Linguini is pretty terrible. He has to go back and is probably going to get fired again when they all find out that he didn't actually cook it.]]

* The story of Gusteau's death, which suggests that he literally died of a broken heart after Ego's damning review of his restaurant; It especially comes as a major shock as Remy was watching the story of Gusteau's life on television, feeling enormous inspiration from his ideals about cooking.....Only to learn that his beloved icon had been dead the whole time.

* "Get out of here! You and all your rat buddies! And don't come back or I'll treat you the way restaurants are supposed to treat pests!"
