There is one line where they are talking about making something illegal that is a natural part of the world. Are they talking about the soup, rats or something else?

Quote, "What happens when you make something illegal that is a natural part of the world?"

It's about 15 minutes into the film.

  • Can you quote the line more specifically? Are you talking about the film or the book it is based on?

Both rats and soup are outlawed

From the script of The Tale of Despereaux:

When something hurts this much, there must be a reason. There must be someone to blame.

The narrator is saying that outlawing rats and soup is as silly as trying to outlaw any other natural thing.

What happens when you make something illegal that is just a natural part of the world? You may as well make flies illegal, or sweat, or Monday morning.
But that's what the King did out of a terrible sadness.
