Ratatouille Character Analysis
Transcript of Ratatouille Character Analysis
"She would be too aggressive with patients; she might have a short temper if the session isn't going her way or the client isn't cooperating."
"I think she would be the type of Speech Language Pathologist that is very good at following directions and rules."
"She has a tireless work ethic," "she would approach each client with determination and persistence, confident that if both client and clinician work together progress will be made."
"Knowledgeable, hard-working, well-educated, traditional, and self-motivated"
Kind of SLP
"Remy would use creative therapy approaches that fit the client's needs and he would use this creativity to make therapy fun. "
"Remy would not be afraid to try new therapy approaches that other clinicians were reluctant to try."
"Remy would be a good clinician because he takes other's advice and learns from his mistakes. Speech pathologists may make mistakes, but if they use those mistakes as learning experiences they will become successful clinicians."
"He would be well versed in the literature."

Reliant on others
"As a speech-language pathologist he would probably often require help from other experienced SLPs."
"He would be good at researching therapy methods and implementing them if they had step by step directions."
"Linguini would make a very caring speech-language pathologist since he is very empathetic."
High moral standards
"He aids others by giving little direction. He was very good at pushing Remy in the right direction, but never explicitly telling him what to do. As an SLP, you want to guide your clients, but if you do the work for them, they won't be able to achieve goals by themselves."
"His imagination would be beneficial for creating therapy activities for the clients, especially with children."
"He may be successful at offering positive encouragement to clients when they become discouraged, seeing as that is what he continually did for Remy."
"Chef Skinner is clearly not a people person and as a Speech-Language Pathologist that is crucial to our success. "
"He does not have the will to teach or help others. Speech-language pathologists need to demonstrate empathy."
"He would probably get really frustrated and yell at a client if they said the wrong word during an activity.He would not respond well to criticism from a supervisor."
"As a speech-language pathologist, Chef Skinner would be too focused on how to achieve quick results with a client versus focusing on small successes and milestones."

The Transition from Student to Professional
"I can definitely relate to the feelings of self-doubt and worry that Linguini showed over the course of the movie. At times I catch myself believing that my skills do not measure up to those of my classmates, worrying that I will never complete all of my assignments on time, and doubting my ability to become a respectable Speech-Language Pathologist."
"When Linguini was learning to become a chef, he was a "blank slate" who had little experience in the kitchen. I, myself, am also a "blank slate" with little to no experience on how to be a clinician or how to practice therapy. "
"I want to continue to be teachable and willing to learn like Linguini."
"I would like to be malleable enough to absorb information from my colleagues."
"There are always times in life when it is necessary to lean on the expertise of others, and I hope that I can remember this when I am a clinician so that I know when to swallow my pride and ask for help of an individual more knowledgeable than I. "
"Colette is very strict about following the rules and recipes while cooking. Since I don't have a lot of experience working with clients, I am less willing to stray from instructions. When formulating a plan, I use literature resources to find examples to model."
"Colette is a perfectionist who likes to have a plan and sticks to the recipe. I, myself, am a perfectionist who wants everything to go according to plan. "
"I hope to one day be as confident in my abilities as a speech-language pathologist as Colette is in her abilities as a chef."
"I want to be like Colette. Her knowledge of all the recipes and kitchen is very impressive and I am hoping to have learned a great deal of information about the field by the time I graduate."
"I try to be efficient with my time and find the easiest and fastest route to get something done."
"He has drive. This is something that I think a clinician should have and I would like to continue to have throughout. It will help get reports done, and it will help motivate to find what the underlying cause of the problem is."
" I would like to have experience and knowledge in our field like Skinner has for cooking."
"I am good about listening to my imaginary Gusteau's advice on trusting myself."
"In terms of my personality and teaching style I tend to emit Gusteau like characteristics. I take a positive approach when I am guiding a young student, focusing on strengths rather than weaknesses."
"Gusteau possesses an ability to create different dishes for different people. In the future, as a clinician, I want to be more open to exploring different types of treatment for the same disorder, based on what works for what client."
"The most important skill I would like to gain is Gusteau's ability to teach."
"Gusteau holds high moral standards, I would like to be like him as a clinician to ensure implementation of the best ethical and evidence based practices."
"I would like to be passionate, calm, optimistic, and fearless some day as a clinician like Gusteau is in the kitchen."
"He didn't fit into the typical chef, but he was a fantastic cook willing to learn and grow. I feel that way as a clinician right now. I have my own ideas and I have my undergraduate knowledge, but I want to continue to learn more in my classes and from others with more experience eventually combining that with what I know to create that beautiful end product in my sessions."
"Remy and I are both creative and able to think on our feet. I am determined to come up with new and creative therapy activities to do with my clients just as he is able make his own recipes on the spot."
"I like how innovative Remy is and I want to be better at creating new therapy activities. I will accomplish this by brainstorming ideas and trying new activities to see which ones work best with my clients."
"I want to maintain my passion for the field, like Remy has, and deepen it as I learn to become more disciplined in my approach."
"I want to be bold and daring and step outside of my comfort zone to try new things like Remy."
What did the
"Personally, I liked the Ratatouille
aspect of the class. Personifying
the ways in which people think
gave me a concrete example to use
when you would talk about how to
go about something, which I
"During the most frustrating
times, I reminded myself
to be more like Remy and
this helped me to think
positive and overcome difficult issues."
"In the beginning of the semester, I thought the character analysis was helpful in terms of describing our profession and different types of professionals in the field."
"I liked the concept of
Ratatouille and how it
relates to critical thinking."
"It is easy to think that there is only one way or the “best” way to do something. The character analysis helped me see that there are several different ways to look at the same “recipe”, and that it is okay to make modifications and that sometimes these modifications make it even better."
"Ratatouille was a great
metaphor for being an
SLP. It was something
I will never forget."
"This exercise made me think about how I currently work and how I want to end up. The reference during the semester reminded me to work on this."
"There is so much content in this area that we could have discussed. I’m not sure if the benefits of the Ratatouille character analysis outweighed the lost content instruction time."
More than the acquisition of knowledge and skills
How to think and act like a professional
"...reflection-in-action which is central to the "art" by which practitioners sometimes deal with situations of uncertainty, instability, uniqueness, and value conflict." - Schon, 1983 p.50
