_-->No sooner had the warm liquid mixed with the crumbs touched my palate than a shudder ran through me and I stopped, intent upon the extraordinary thing that was happening to me. An exquisite pleasure had invaded my senses, something isolated, detached, with no suggestion of its origin. And at once the vicissitudes of life had become indifferent to me, its disasters innocuous, its brevity illusory this new sensation having had on me the effect which love has of filling me with a precious essence; or rather this essence was not in me it was me. ... Whence did it come? What did it mean? How could I seize and apprehend it? ... And suddenly the memory revealed itself. The taste was that of the little piece of madeleine which on Sunday mornings at Combray (because on those mornings I did not go out before mass), when I went to say good morning to her in her bedroom, my aunt Léonie used to give me, dipping it first in her own cup of tea or tisane. The sight of the little madeleine had recalled nothing to my mind before I tasted it. And all from my cup of tea.

* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p_hdmt4vpBo "Le Festin"]].
** If you look at the translated lyrics, you'll see that the song is basically a theme for Remy and the film; the tale of a thief who hates stealing while feeling that there wasn't a choice in the matter. Later on, the thief achieves and a new start in life through his passion and determination to break free.

* EnsembleDarkhorse: Horst. [[ShroudedInMyth Guess why.]] That, or his THUMB OF DOOOOOOM!
** Anton Ego, who many people consider one of the best Pixar characters of all time despite only appearing briefly in the third act, thanks to his great lines, memorable personality and being played by acting legend ''Peter fucking O'Toole.''

** Linguini spends a good portion of the movie being controlled by Remy so that they can cook, and also receives cooking instructions from Colette to be a better cook in the kitchen. You'd think that with these two things going for Linguini that some cooking techniques from Remy and Colette would rub off on him, and that Linguini would actually learn to cook something on his own by the end of the film. [[spoiler:Instead, he suddenly becomes a waiter]].
