When you recall the animated flick about the rat chef, chances are you remember the kid-friendly humor. After all, Ratatouille is for families, and written to appeal to children in its humor and pathos, like all classic Pixar movies. Revisiting the film, however, you might be surprised to find adult moments nestled in the warm, naive sentiment of Ratatouille. Perhaps the writers were inspired by the romance and sexuality of the film's Parisian setting. 

If these naughty little gags and outright inappropriate moments slipped by you as you fell in love with Remy, Linguini, Colette, and the gang, here they are, fully exposed – dirty adult gems hidden in Ratatouille. For more funny lines, check out the best quotes from Ratatouille.

    “I Don’t Swallow.”

    Video: YouTube

    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.

    Some Dude Painting An Unclothed Woman

    Video: YouTube

    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 an unrobed woman. 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.

    Welcome To Hell

    Video: YouTube
    Linguini arrives at work for his first day and he’s greeted by Chef Skinner with folded arms, a cold stare and a blunt, “Welcome to hell.”  Sure, plenty of people consider their work a hellhole, but it's pretty intense for a kid's flick.

    Chef Skinner Gets Linguini Drunk

    In the hopes of interrogating Linguini and getting to the bottom of his connection with rats, Skinner uses wine to get Linguini drunk. This leads to a blatantly intoxicated Linguini slurring things like “Nopity, nopity, no” when asked if he has a pet rat. Openly getting shmammered isn't the most child friendly of concepts.
