"Plan B" is a song sung by Remy (Patton Oswalt) and Emile (Peter Sohn) at the end of the segment Your Friend the Rat. It encourages the viewers to see rats in a different way, and restates some of the themes and ideas that were taught earlier in the short film. An instrumental version of the song is heard on the DVD/Blu-ray menu of Pixar Short Films Collection Volume 2.


Emile (spoken):
Key of G, fellas. And swing it!

Remy and Emile:
We'll follow you to Mars
Or wherever you people go...

Low-pitched rat:
We rats are right there down below!

Remy and Emile:
We've traveled near and far
With swamis, geishas, thugs and czars
In planes and boats and submarines
We've sailed from Liverpool to Queens
We're even in Qatar, or wherever you people go...
We all adore François Truffaut

Abandon musophobia
And embrace a new utopia...

Butterflies and puppy dogs
Summer evenings, crispy frogs

Remy and Emile:
Imagine if you will a world
Where women, rats, and men and children
Live in peace and harmony
We're even holding hands

We're dancing through the streets
And singing cabaret songs, ooh-la-la-la
Join with us we’ll make a human ratty wonderland

We'll help you tie your shoes
When you don't feel like bending over
And perhaps you'll take that trap
From out behind the pantry door

We'll say, "Bonjour" and "How's the family?"
When we pass each other on the street
And just like that we won't be strangers anymore

So here we go to Mars
With our stories intertwined
And although once you tried to kill us
Now we know that you won’t mind

We'll journey through the stars
And whatever else may be...

We all hate that lousy flea...

That lousy flea...


  • The composer, James G. Dashe, performs the voice of the low-pitched rat in this song.
    • Also, during the part where the low-pitched rat sings, the Wilhelm scream is heard.
  • During the Liverpool verse, the Beatles make a cameo appearance along with a rat wearing the same style as the Beatles.
  • At one point near the end of the song, WALL-E makes a cameo appearance as a bus driver in Mars as a reference to Pixar's next film of the same name.
