* DaddyDNATest: How Skinner, Rémy, Collete and Linguini find out that Linguini is Gusteau's son. It's [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] that maybe Gusteau himself didn't realize he had a child, not because he died before Linguini's birth, but it may have been so long that he didn't remember being with Renata, and Renata specifically asked Skinner not to tell the boy.

* ArtisticLicenseBiology: Remy gags when he catches a whiff of the soup Linguini clumsily doctored. Rats are physically incapable of vomiting. RuleOfFunny applies, of course.
** Remy also shouldn't have been taste-testing many of the dishes he prepared, as onions or scallions are used in most, and are toxic to rats and many other animals. Even chopping such vegetables or sniffing them to assess quality could've exposed the "little chef" enough to cause terminal anemia.

* DisgruntledChef
** Collette is the underappreciated kind. When saddle with teaching NaiveNewcomer Linguini, she warns him that being a restaurant cook is not like "playing in the kitchen with mommy"; she does eventually soften as they get to know each other. She also points out that [[TheSmurfettePrinciple she's the only woman in the kitchen staff]], and thus has to be extra tough to make it in a traditionally male dominated industry.
** Skinner, the current head chef at Gusteau's, is the artiste kind. He is arrogant and ill-tempered, ruling the kitchen with an iron fist. When he catches Linguini adding ingredients to a soup, he threatens to ''draw and quarter'' him.

** A small one happens when Linguini and Remy pass the soup test. Colette show them that simply being able to make delicious food is only one aspect of being a cook; you not only have to be good at cooking, but also good at organization, timing and efficiency due to each dish having different cooking times (and must all arrive piping hot at the same time), the massive amounts of orders they have during service, to keep hazards in the kitchen (which is filled with hot fluids, hot surfaces and sharp objects) to a minimum. Remy can be briefly seen trembling, clearly having thought that his nose was all he needed.
