Remy's cooking is credited to Linguini, who rises in the ranks of Gusteau's, angering wound-tight Head Chef Skinner. Remy becomes the owner of Gusteau's when it is revealed that he is the son of the Gusteau himself. The Remy/Linguini combination is put to the test by hard-nosed food snob Anton Ego. Linguini desperately reveals his secret to his kitchen staff, who are disgusted and desert him. (Colette comes back.) Remy recruits all of his rat friends and they run the kitchen like a well-oiled machine. They serve Ego the "peasant dish" ratatouille, which reminds him of his childhood. He happily demands to meet the Head Chef, and after making everyone else leave, Colette and Linguini introduce him to their rat troop. Ego serves up a raving review, but Skinner reports them and the Board of Health shuts Gusteau's down. Remy and Linguini open up their own restaurant - Le Ratatouille.


Continuity mistake: When Remy and Emile are cooking the mushroom on the roof, notice that the mushroom is skewered on the antenna. When Remy and Emile are hit by lightning and sent careening off the roof, the mushroom is instantly on a stick in Remy's hand, instead of the antenna. It could've been sent flying by the lightning bolt, but even if it was, there was no stick in the previous shot for it to have ended up on. (00:07:50)
