|~ Rat's last words.|
Apparently Rat and Fox met a long time ago, as they each say that the other has aged badly.
Fox and Rat put up a fight and succeeded in stealing's Bean's strong cider. Later, while Mrs. Fox and the other animals went looking for Kristofferson, Rat showed up again and attempted to kidnap Ash, but Mr. Fox arrived and fought him, and Rat was killed by getting electrocuted by an electric fence. As he lay dying, he told where the three farmers' hideout is, then he died.
He appears earlier in the movie than in the Roald Dahl novel. He also has a bigger role in the movie and plays a real antagonist while in the novel, he was a minor character.
