Full Plot

Roddy is a decidedly upper-crust "society mouse" who lives the life of a beloved pet in a posh Kensington flat. When a sewer rat named Sid comes spewing out of the sink and decides he's hit the jackpot, Roddy schemes to rid himself of the pest by luring him into the "whirlpool." Sid may be an ignorant slob, but he's no fool, so it is Roddy who winds up being flushed away into the bustling sewer world of Ratropolis. There Roddy meets Rita, an enterprising scavenger who works the sewers in her faithful boat, the Jammy Dodger. Roddy immediately wants out, or rather, up; Rita wants to be paid for her trouble; and, speaking of trouble, the villainous Toad - who royally despises all rodents equally, making no distinction between mice and rats--wants them iced... literally. The Toad dispatches his two hapless hench-rats, Spike and Whitey, to get the job done. When they fail, the Toad has no choice but to send to France for his cousin - that dreaded mercenary, Le Frog. DreamWorks SKG Roddy is a rat who lives in the best lifestyle possible, but when stranger Sid appears, Roddy tries everything to remove him. Unfortunately for Roddy, not everything goes to plan, and he himself ends up in the sewers. Gaining the assistance of Rita, Roddy tries to get home, whilst dodging the evil Toad.

Toad: Prepare to meet you maker. Your... "ice maker". Whitey: Hah hah, makes me laugh every time, that one. [Spike and Whitey are falling] Spike: Keep your legs straight when you hit the water! [Whitey lands safely in the water, while Spike hits a cement stone] Whitey: I kept me legs straight, Spike. [a power cord lands on Spike] Sid: [Flushing Roddy down the drain] You think I don't know a toilet when I see one? Sid: You were going to flush me down the loo! Roddy: No, no, no! It's a big jacuzzi, the deluxe model! Sid: Well then, you won't mind if I get the bubbles going, will ya? Roddy: No, not the lever! Have mercy! No! No! I can't swim! Sid: Bon voyage, me old cream cracker. Hold your nose. Roddy: No, no, no! You can't do this! Sid: You were going to try and flush me? Let's see how you like it! Goldfish: [Roddy picks up fish] Have you seen my dad? Tadpole: Is it the Glorious Amphibian Dawn, dad? Toad: Anything for you, my little man. Tadpole: Can I have a pony? Toad: No. Tadpole: A puppy? Toad: We'll talk about it. Tadpole: Can we talk about it now? Toad: No! [All the tadpoles start asking for puppies] No, you can't all have puppies! Please, daddy's working! Sid: Careful, mate. Those aren't chocolate buttons. Roddy: Whatever's going on, I assure you, I'm not involved. I'm just an innocent bystander. Spike: Rita, Rita, Rita. [laughs] Thought you could give us the slip? [Slips and falls] What are you looking at? Keep still! Come on, then! Right! Who have we got here? Whitey: I believe he said his name was Millicent Bystander. Roddy: Will you please tell these people I'm not involved in this? Rita: Fine. All right, all right, listen up. This gentleman, he's not from around here. Roddy: Thank you. Rita: Just look how nicely he's dressed. Roddy: Ah, thank you. Rita: And why? Because he's an international jewel thief! Roddy: Precisely... What? No, no! Liam: Oy, mom! There's a peeping Tom outside. Rita's Grandma: Tom? Oh, it's Tom Jones! Liam: He's gonna steal your boat. Rita: He won't steal my boat. Liam: He's stealing your boat. Rita: He isn't stealing... Liam: He stole your boat. Rita: What? Liam: He's like Robin Hood in reverse. Rita: This is quite tasty. Roddy: Thanks. I don't think it's too bad, considering I only had an apple, four raisins and a box of rice. Rita: Rice? Slug: [singing] What's that urge from deep inside? / The need to hurl won't be denied / That isn't rice, that's maggots you're eating. Maggots: Larva, larva, larva... Roddy: Well. That explains why it all ran to one side when I put salt in it. Tex: Where's your helmets? Which one's the quarterback? Pick up the ball! Pick up the ball! Aw, these Brits don't know the first thing about football. Whitey: Oh, I love a happy ending. Spike: Oh, you've gone soft. I like unhappy endings, with lots of violence. [the champagne bottle used to christen the Jammy Dodger II swings over and hits Spike; the cork pops and the bottle goes flying, taking Spike with it; offscreen crash] Whitey: Are you - are you happy now, Spike? Toad: You wretched vermin! I'll make you pay for this! Le Frog: Ah, give it a rest, cousin... and get your kids a puppy. Le Frog: You stupid English, with your Yorkshire puddings and your chips and fish! Roddy: [hanging on to Rita's belt as it starts to break] No, no don't break! There are things I want to do, sights I want to see. [belt breaks; Rita's pants drop] That wasn't on the list. Roddy: And who might you be, little chap? Shocky: They call me Shocky. Roddy: Why do they call you that? Shocky: [Shocks Roddy with a battery] Shocky! Roddy: Ohh! Yes, got it. [as Roddy is sent flying through a clothesline] Passerby: Is it a bird? Passerby #2: Is it a plane? Passerby #3: Is that guy wearing my underpants? Action Figure: Give up your weapons of mass destruction! Come and get me, enemy of freedom! Toad: Huzzah, a man of quality! Rita: Tell me about yourself, Roddy. Roddy: Well, there's not much to tell. Rita: You know everything about me, warts and all. I don't even know what you do. Roddy: I'm... I'm in a boy band. Rita: What? Roddy: Yeah. Yeah, I'm the posh one. [Roddy is using a cell phone as a shield as Rita throws crayons at him; the crayons dial a number] Take Out: Ha Chin Chinese takeout. Roddy: Yes, I'm being attacked by a madwoman! She's got crayons! Take Out: One chicken chow mein. With wonton? Roddy: No, crayons! Take Out: No wonton! You want rice? Fried or white? Roddy: Fried. No, wait! Take Out: You want wonton or what? Roddy: Cancel that order. Spike: Blimy, it's cold. Whitey: That's why I wore me mittens. Spike: Wha... Hitmen don't wear mittens! Take them off! You're embarrasing me! Whitey: It's all right for you. You've got little hands. They don't freeze as much. Rita: What are you, some kind of rat boomerang? Give me back my ruby! Roddy: I haven't got your ruby! [the ruby falls on his hand] Okay. Well, now I've got your ruby. Shocky: They call me shocky. Roddy: Now why do they call you that? [Talking about Spike's hands] Spike: They're small but these are lethal weapons, these are. Whitey: You got your mother's hands. Spike: All right, all right! It's time to bring out... the Persuader! [takes out a nutcracker] Spike: Your choice, mate. You can talk now, or you can talk later. Ain't that right, Persuader? Spike: [through the nutcracker, in a much higher voice] Yes, in a much higher voice. Slug: High five! [He realizes he has no hands] Slug: Oh, yeah. [Le Frog Has brought a cable necessary for the Toad's plan] Toad: At last, it's mine! [the Toad laughs for half a minute and is annoying Le Frog] Le Frog: Just take it! Toad: You find my pain amusing? Le Frog: I find everyone's pain amusing, except my own... I'm French! Rita: It's impossible! Roddy: /ENGLAND/ is winning! ANYTHING'S possible! Spike: Any last requests? Roddy: Yes. Could you fly, quite suddenly, off the boat, screaming like a girl? Spike: What? [Is jerked off the boat by a cord] AAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! Le Frog: We leave immediately! [strides off screen] Henchfrog #1: What about supper? Le Frog: [strides back on screen] We leave in five hours! Le Frog: To action! Henchfrogs: We surrender! Le Frog: Not that action, you idiots! The kung-fu thing! Le Frog: We leave immediately! Henchfrog: What about dinner? Le Frog: We leave... in five hours. Spike: Bingo! Whitey: Scrabble! Heh. Fly: He's a mad man! Run away, run... [the Toad swallows the fly] Toad: Pardon me, my fly's undone. Spike: Ohhh, Whitey! Whitey: I saw an opportunity, and I took it. Toad: You find my pain funny? Le Frog: I find everyone's pain funny but my own. I'm French. Roddy: Roddy St. James saves the day. Toad: You are late. Le Frog: Fashionably late my warty English cousin. I know no other way. Whitey: So you're from up top, eh? I used to work in a laboratory up top. Yeah, big shampoo job. I was dark grey when we started. Still, it cleared up me dandruff. Whitey: Are you sure about this, Spike? These things are dangerous. Spike: Danger is my middle name! Whitey: I thougth it was Lesley. Roddy: When the cat's away, the mice will play! Whitey: It's just that curry you had last night, Spike. I'm the same, I've got a bum like the Japanese flag. Rita's Grandma: I'm coming, Tom! [last lines] Tabitha: Roddy! I brought you a new friend! [she holds up a cat] Sid: Aah! Le Frog: This bizarre obsession with rats; it is not good for you. You are becoming what we French call "le fruitcake!" [repeated line] Toad: Good bye, vermin. Roddy: Maybe I can make it up to you? Rita: Get stuffed. Toad: Where are those idiots! [talking to his tadpoles] Toad: It's so hard to get good help these days, my boys.
