Linguini quotes

[holding R?my in a jar] You're the one who was getting fancy with the spices! What did you throw in there? Oregano? [terrified R?my shakes his head] No? What? Ro--uh, rosemary? [he shakes his head again] That's a spice, isn't it? Rosemary? [R?my nods.] You didn't throw rosemary in there? Then what was all the flipping and all the throwing and the-- [Linguini sulks] I need this job. I've lost so many. I don't know how to cook and now I'm actually talking to a rat as if you-- [he gasps] Did you nod? [R?my nods] Have you been nodding? You understand me![R?my, brow raised, nods again]. So I'm not crazy! Wait a second, wait a second-- Uh, I can't cook, can I? [R?my thinks for a moment, then shakes his head] But you, heh, you can, right? [R?my shrugs modestly but acknowledgedly]. Look, don't be so modest. You're a rat for Pete's sake.

[after failing first attempt to cook with R?my] This is not gonna work, little chef! I'm gonna lose it if we do this anymore! We gotta, we gotta figure out something else; something that doesn't involve any biting, or nipping, or running up and down my body with your little rat feet! The biting, no! Scampering, no! No scampering or scurrying!

You take a break, little chef! I'm not your puppet, and you're not my puppet-controlling guy! You cool off and get your mind right, little chef! Ego is coming, and I need to focus!

Appetite is coming, and he's going to have a big ego!

[R?my, testing out his new control system, tugs Linguini's hair hard] Whoa-ho! That's strangely involuntary--ahhh!

I've never disappointed anyone before because no one's ever expected anything of me. And the only reason anyone's expecting anything of me now is because of you.

You're stealing food?! How could you? I-I thought you were my friend! I trusted you! [kicks out R?my and the other rats] Get out, you and all your rat buddies! And don't come back or I'll treat you the way restaurants are supposed to treat pests!

Thanks, little chef.

[R?my has been discovered again in kitchen] I know this sounds insane, but, well, the truth sounds insane sometimes, but that doesn't mean it's not the truth. And the truth is...I have no talent at all. But this r-rat [picks up R?my], he's the one behind these recipes. He's the cook, the real cook. [puts R?my on his head] He's been hiding under my toque. He's been controlling my actions. [R?my pulls Linguini's hair causing his arms go up] He's the reason I can cook the food that's exciting everyone, the reason Ego is outside that door! You've been giving me credit for his gift. I know it's a hard thing to believe, but hey, you-you believed I could cook, right? Look, this works, it's crazy, but it works. We can be the greatest restaurant in Paris, and this rat, this brilliant, Little Chef, can lead us there.

Let's do this thing!

I don't handle pressure very well, and that's not good for me, and for the people around me, too.
