The entire scene when Linguni is confirmed to be Gusteau's son and Skinner begins ranting about seeing rats everywhere.
Skinner: (After learning Linguini is Gusteau's son) No...no...no no NO NOOO!! NOOOO!!!! (
Talon: The DNA matches, the timing works, everything checks out. He is Gusteauís son.
T-t-this can't just— happen! The whole thing is a set-up! The boy KNOWS! (Skinner goes to his window and parts the blinds to the kitchen)
Look at him out there — pretending
to be an idiot
! Heís toying with my mind, like a cat with a ball! Of... something!
Skinner: Yes! Playing dumb! Taunting me with that rat!
Skinner: Yes! Heís consorting with it! Deliberately trying to make me think itís important!
Talon: (delicately) Is the rat... "important"?
Skinner: Of course not! He just wants me to think that it is! Oh, I see the theatricality of it; a rat appears on the boyís first night, I order him to kill it and now he wants me to see it everywhere! (high voice) OOOH!! (snaps fingers wildly) Itís here, no it isnít, itís HERE! Am I seeing things, am I crazy, is there a phantom rat or is there not!? But ohhh no! I refuse to be sucked into his little game... of... (Suddenly aware Talon is starting at him)
Talon: [a little freaked out] ... Should I be concerned about this? About... you?
- Made even better when Linguini cheerfully waves at him while Skinner says he's pretending to be an idiot!
- And when the lawyer tells Skinner about the hair sample he got? "The first time, the lab had to send the sample back. Apparantly, the results said it was... rodent hair." The look on Skinner's face is priceless.
