Objective Story Concern
- getting an idea about a group
The staff at Gusteau’s restaurant are trying to conceive of the thing that will restore the restaurant’s great reputation, and they unknowingly find it — in the form of a rat secretly working in the restaurant and proving Gusteau’s much-disputed mantra: ‘anyone can cook.’
Main Character Concern
- being current in something
Remy is totally unsatisfied with his present life as a rat. His gifts are not being appreciated or properly utilized by his rat family, and he simply hates his quality of life — he doesn’t want to just survive, he wants to live.
Influence Character Concern
- being attentive
Linguini’s total lack of thought about, well, anything leads pretty much everyone else to consider him a totally and utterly useless waste of space.
Relationship Story Concern
- learning how to best work together
Remy and Linguini must learn to overcome their obvious differences and find a way to truly work in harmony as a team, allowing the relationship to blossom into something more meaningful.
