The Vegetables-as-Sex-Toys Jokes
At one point, Linguini is talking to Remy in a storage closet when Chef Skinner comes in, demanding to know what's happening. Linguini says, “I’m just familiarizing myself with the vegetables and such.”Chef Skinner kicks him out, stating, “Get out! One can become too familiar with vegetables, you know!”
The Small Penis Joke
There’s a scene in which Linguini is trying to confess to Colette that he’s been getting assistance from Remy, and he reluctantly says, “I have this tiny, little, little…”The words "tiny" and "little" prompt Colette to quickly glance down at Linguini’s junk with concern, worried he's referring to his meatballs and pasta, not a rat. In the end, though, Colette is satisfied with Linguini, so he must be packing more than penne.
Some Dude Painting a Nude Woman
In one sequence, we see Remy scurrying between cracks and crevices, onto pipes and into a kitchen. At one point he quickly passes a room in which there’s clearly a man painting a naked girl. Or woman. Hopefully a woman. Otherwise, that guy's going to jail. If you blink you might miss it; it’s a classic case of slipping something questionable into a kid’s movie. It might also be a reference to Titanic, and Jack's French girls.
“I Don’t Swallow.”
When Linguini meets Anton Ego, he states that he doesn’t just like food, he loves it. He then says, “If I don’t love it, I don’t swallow it.”Perhaps just a sentence within a script full of dialogue, but many believe it was purposely phrased that way for the amusement of immature adults everywhere.
