Anton's food-induced {{Flashback}} hails from Marcel Proust's concept of "involuntary memory". Quoth ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/In_Search_of_Lost_Time#Themes In Search of Lost Time]]'':



** It's actually a very well-known concept in France, used in common speak through the expression "''C'est ma madeleine de Proust''" (it's my madeleine of Proust).
*** The reference to chef Boyardee is surprisingly significant: he was also a well-known and successful chef that was reduced to a face on prepared foods after his death.

* UnfortunateImplications: The river boats and the manouche jazz that plays during the party scene draw clear parallels between the rats and the Romani people. ([[http://www.cartergoodrich.com/character-design/ratatouille/rat13-466/ Some early concept drawings]] make this even more obvious.) Considering that Romani have been [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antiziganism treated as thieving vermin]] themselves for much of their history, it's not a great connection to be making, even if the rats are portrayed sympathetically.

** Whenever the rats appear in large groups. First there's the scene where the old lady shoots down her ceiling, revealing that ALL the rats have been living [[{{Squick}} IN HER ROOF.]] Then there's the bit near the end where a swarm of rats chase the health inspector, ''swarm over his car'' (with him inside), interfere with the car's mechanics, and eventually bring him back, bound and gagged, to the kitchen, where they lock him in the freezer for who knows how long (They eventually release him).

** Depending on how corse your mind is, Remy face and body language as he's forcing Linguini's ShutUpKiss onto Colette looks a little bit like he's, er... "climaxing."

* AwesomeMusic: Michael Giachino's [[{{Pun}} whips up]] another jazzy and [[EarWorm insufferably catchy]] score for a BradBird film. The scene of Remy imagines delicious combinations being represented by two different kinds of music fusing is one of the best visualizations in the whole film, and of food in general. And the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=esohR65lsVg cue]] for Colette's TrainingMontage re-arranged as [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5igpBHE0oiY a bombastic mambo number]] for the credits just [[JustForPun takes the cake]].

** There's also a number of spontaneous slap-bass guitar riffs hidden throughout which are [[HurricaneOfPuns just the cherry on top]].
