James P. "Sulley" Sullivan[edit]

  • [to Mike; silently] Ook-lay in the ag-bay.
  • Mike, give her the bear.
  • Magnolia? Give me that. (Takes the schedule and reads it himself) It's Mongolia. Mike, does this look like Mongolia to you?

Mike Wazowski[edit]

  • [while Sulley brushes his teeth] Come on, fight that plaque! Fight that plaque! Scary monsters don't have plaque!
  • [chants] I don't know, but it's been said. I love scaring kids in bed!
  • Roz, my tender, oozing blossom, you're looking fabulous today. Is that a new haircut? Tell me it's a new haircut. It's got to be a new haircut. New makeup? You had a lift? You had a tuck? You had something? Something has been inserted in you that makes you look like.... Listen, I need a favor.
  • I'm tellin’ you, pal, when that wall went up, you should have seen the look on Waternoose's face. Woo-hoo! I hope we get a copy of that tape. Hey, you all right? Come on, pal, cheer up, we did it. We got Boo home. Sure, we put the factory in the toilet, and, gee, hundreds of people will be out of work now, not to mention the angry mob that'll come after us when there's no more power... but hey, at least we had a few laughs, right?
  • Oh, would you listen to this? Blame it on the little guy. How original. He must have read the schedule wrong with his ONE EYE!
  • [teaser trailer] Nice doggy. [chuckles] Nice... Big doggy. Sulley? Sulley, open the door! OPEN THE DOOR!! [Mike pounds on the door and pulling on the doorknob] NO-O-O-O-O-O-O-W!! [The door opens Sulley's arm grabs Mike inside the door pulling him in] AHH--! [Door closes]

Randall Boggs[edit]

  • [after angrily whacking Sulley with a scream canister] You don't know how long I've wanted to do that, Sullivan!
  • [about to dispose of Sulley] Look at everybody's favorite scarer now, you stupid pathetic waste. You've been #1 for too long, Sullivan! Now your time is up! And don't worry. I'll take good care of the kid.

Henry J. Waternoose[edit]

  • There's nothing more toxic or deadly than a human child. A single touch could kill you! Leave a door open, and one can walk right into this factory. Right into the monster world!
  • Kids these days. They just don't get scared like they used to.
  • [taken away by the C.D.A.] I hope you're happy, Sullivan. You've destroyed this company! Monsters, Incorporated is dead! Where will everyone get their scream now?! The energy crisis will only get worse because of YOU!!!


[first lines]
Simulation Mom: Good night, sweetheart.
Simulation Kid: Good night, Mom.
Simulation Dad: Sleep tight, kiddo.
[The bedroom light clicks off. Soft moonlight illuminates the room. A simulation kid snuggles into bed as his parents' footsteps fade away down the hall. All is quiet. The closet door creaks open. The kid looks around the room nervously, eyes growing wide. Suddenly, he spies a tenactle, emerging from the closet. The kid turns away in fear, but a second look reveals it to be just a shirt sleeve. He relaxes back into bed. A dark shadow cuts across the bedspread. From under the bed, a pair of evil red eyes peer out. Rising up behind the kid, preparing to scare his young victim, towers a fearsome monster. The kid sees the monster and screams. The monster, horrified by the child, lets out an even more bloodcurdling scream of his own. He backs away and slips on a soccer ball, which ricochets off the wall and beans him squarely on the face. He stumbles back onto a skateboard, slips, and lands on a pile of jacks. Crazed with pain, the monster runs around the room, squealing and holding his backside]
Simulator Voice: Simulation terminated. Simulation terminated.
[Worklights flash on, flooding the room with light. The kid, now revealed to be a simulation, winds down and resets. One wall of the bedroom starts to rise, revealing]
Simulator Voice: Simulation terminated. Simulation terminated. Simulation terminated.
[The bedroom is a set, a simulator where monsters practice their scare tactics. Behind a control console sits an evaluator, the dragon-like Ms. Flint. Judging by her tone, she's been through this before]
Flint: All right, Mr. Bile, is it?
Bile: Uh, my friends call me Phlem.
Flint: Uh-huh, Mr. Bile, can you tell me what you did wrong?
Bile: I fell down?
Flint: No, no, before that. Can anyone tell me Mr. Bile's big mistake? Anyone?
[Flint addresses a panel of pathetic looking recruits, seated behind her. They stare back at her blankly]
Flint: Let's take a look at the tape.
[Flint rewinds the tape, then plays it. On the monitor: Bile sneaks into the bedroom, leaving the door open. The image freezes]
Flint: Alright, let's check, right there. The door! You left it wide open.
Recruits and Bile: Oooh.
Flint: And leaving the door open is the worst mistake that any employee can make, because...
Bile: Uh... it could let in a draft?
Waternoose: [Offscreen] It could let out a child.
[Mr. Waternoose, CEO of Monsters, Inc., steps from the shadows]
Flint: Oh! Mr. Waternoose!
Waternoose: There's nothing more toxic or deadly than a human child. A single touch could kill you.
[Bile shuffles nervously away from the simulation kid]
Waternoose: Leave a door and a child could walk right into this factory. Right into the monster world.
Trainee: I won't go into kid's room. You can't make me.
Waternoose: You're going in there, because we need this. Our city is counting on you to collect those children screams. Without scream we have no power. Yes, it's dangerous work. And that's why I need you to be at your best. I need scarers who are confident, tenacious, tough, intimidating. I need scarers like... like... James P. Sullivan.

[The next morning, James P. Sullivan, snoring loudly, fast asleep. Sulley is an intimidatingly large big blue monster with floppy ears, horns, sharp teeth and sharp claws. The clock radio next to him clicks on]
Radio DJ: Hey! Good morning, Monstropolis. It's now five after the hour of 6:00 A.M. In the big monster city.
[The camera pans over to reveal that the radio announcer is actually Mike, a one-eyed ball of a monster with green frog-like skin, standing casually next to Sulley's bed]
Mike: Temperature's a balmy 65 degrees, which is good news for you reptiles, and it looks like it's going to be a perfect day to maybe, hey, just lie in bed, sleep in or simply... work out that flab that's hanging over the bed! Get up, Sulley!
[Mike pulls on Sulley's floppy ear. BWAAAT! Sulley drops to the floor for push-ups. Mike stands in front of him barking orders like a coach]
Sulley: I don't believe I ordered a wake-up call, Mikey.
Mike: Hey! Less talk, more pain, marshmallow boy! Feel the burn! [Between each push-up, Sulley springs into the air, striking a fearsome pose and roaring] You call yourself a monster? [Sulley roars louder. Sulley jogs in place] Scary feet, scary feet, scary feet! Oop! The kid's awake! [Sulley drops to the ground and lies motionless] Okay, scary feet, scary feet, scary feet, scary feet... [Sulley pops back up into a jog] ...kid's asleep! [Sulley roars] Twins! In a bunk bed! [Sulley goes up and down, roaring on two levels] Ooh! I thought I had you there. Okay, Sulley, here we go. You ready? Follow it. [Mike holds a broom with a crude drawing of a child's face taped to the end] Oh! It's over here! Oh, look over there! [Mike swings the broom, Sulley lunges after it] Don't let the kid touch you! Don't let it touch you!
[Sulley growls at the paper kid while dodging it. Like a quarterback rushing a tackle dun-any, Sulley strains to push a pile of heavy furniture across the living room. Mike stands atop the pile encouraging him]
Mike: [singing like a drill sergeant] I don't know, but it's been said I love scaring kids in bed! [Sulley brushes his teeth, while Mike stands on his arm] Come on, fight that plaque! Fight that plaque! Scary monsters don't have plaque! [Sulley hangs upside-down from a beam, doing some "gravity" sit-ups] 118... do you have 119? Do I see 120? Oh, I don't believe it!
Sulley: I'm not even breaking a sweat.
Mike: Not you! Look! The new commercial's on!
[Mike runs to the TV Sulley slips and falls. A bank of lights illuminate and flare brightly]
Commercial Narrator: The future is bright at Monsters, Incorporated.
[Sulley and Mike scramble into their chairs to watch the commercial]
Mike: I'm in this one! I'm in this one!
[Beautiful shots of monsters happily living their lives]
Commercial Narrator: We're part of your life. We power your car. We warm your home. We light your city.
[Betty turns to the camera]
Betty: [on TV] I'm Monsters, Incorporated.
Sulley: [pointing at screen] Hey, look! Betty!
[A bored child watches as various monsters cycle past. We settle on one which causes the child to scream]
Commercial Narrator: Carefully matching every child to their ideal monster... to produce superior scream refined into clean, dependable energy. Every time you turn something on Monsters, Incorporated, is there.
Floor Manager: [to camera] I'm Monsters, Incorporated!
[A child vacantly staring at a television set. Machine gun fire, explosions, etc. are heard emerging from the set. Text appears on the screen: "SIMULATION-NOT ACTUAL CHILD"]
Commercial Narrator: We know the challenge... the window of innocence is shrinking. Human kids are harder to scare.
[Henry J. Waternoose, a large crab-like monster, turns to face the camera]
Waternoose: [on TV; to camera] Of course, M.I. Is prepared for the future with the top scarers...
[On the screen, Sulley stands next to a door standing on a factory work floor. He leans through a door and roars. The kid inside screams. Mike watches his buddy on TV and leaps to his feet]
Mike: Woo-hoo-hoo!
Waternoose: [on TV] ...the best refineries and research into new energy techniques.
[A monster with virtual reality glasses roars, causing a computer child on a monitor behind him to scream. Mike scoots to the edge of his seat in anticipation]
Mike: [re: commercial] Okay, here I come.
[Sulley and Mike stand in front of a crowd of MI workers. As they turn to camera, the Monsters, Inc. logo appears over Mike, blocking him entirely]
Sulley: [on TV] We're working for a better tomorrow... today!
[Mike stares at the television, shocked]
Workers: [on TV] We're Monsters, Incorporated!
Waternoose: [voice-over; on TV] We're M.I., Monsters, Incorporated. We scare because we care.
[Sulley turns off the TV]
Mike: [in shock] I can't believe it.
Sulley: [consoling] Oh, Mike...
Mike: I was on TV! Did you see me? I'm a natural!
[The phone rings. Mike grabs the receiver]
Mike: [into phone] Hello. I know! Hey, wasn't I great? Did the whole family see it? [to Sulley] It's your mom. [to phone] What can I say? The camera loves me.

[The sun rises over Monstropolis, an industry town much like Pittsburg. Its ancient history is seen in the architecture. A newspaper delivery monster tosses a paper on the stoop of an apartment building. Mike and Sulley walk out the door, lunch boxes in hand]
Mike: I'm telling you, big daddy, you're gonna be seeing's this face on TV a lot more often.
Sulley: Yeah, like on "Monstropolis' Most Wanted"?
Mike: Ha, ha, ha. You've been jealous of my good looks since the fourth grade, pal.
[They walk by a tiny monster husband and wife]
Tiny Monster Wife: Have a good day, sweetie.
Tiny Monster Husband: You, too, hon.
[The monster husband flies away. Mike approaches a shiny new convertible and holds up a set of keys]
Mike: Whoo. Okay, Sulley, hop on in.
Sulley: Nope. Uh-uh. Uh-uh.
[Sulley grabs Mike's arm and drags him away]
Mike: Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey! Where are you going? What are you doing.
Sulley: Mikey, there's a scream shortage. We're walking.
Mike: Walking?!
Sulley: Yep.
Mike: No, no, no, my baby.
Sulley: Come on. Come on.
Mike: Look! She needs to be driven! Bye, baby! I'll... I'll call you.
[Close on newspaper stand with headline: "rolling blackouts expects." Mike and Sulley walk past]
Mike: Hey, genius, you wanna know why I bought the car, huh?
Sulley: Not really.
Mike: To drive it! You know, like on the street, with the honk-honk and the vroom-vroom, and the no walking involved?
Sulley: Wa, wa, wa, wa. Will you give it a rest, butterball? Come on, you could use the exercise.
Mike: I could use the exercise?! Look at you! You have your own climate.
[Monster kids jump rope as Mike and Sulley pass]
Monster Kids: How many tentacles jump the rope?
[The rope is actually one of the kid's tongues]
Monster Kid: Morning, Mike! Morning, Sulley!
Sulley: Hey! Morning, kids. How you doing?
Mike: Hey, kids.
Kid Tongue Monster: [turning her head] Bye, Mike! Bye, Sulley!
[The jumping monster kid gets tangled in the rope tongue and flies into a giant eye monster watching from a window]
Giant Eye Monster: Ow! Hey!
[A garbage monster sweeps garbage off the sidewalk into a dustpan. He happily tosses the contents into his mouth. A monster reading a newspaper sneezes, and fire shoots from his mouth and nose, incinerating his paper]
Sneezing Monster: Ah, nuts.
[Tony the grosser arranges fruit on a stand with his many tentacles]
Tony: Hey! Fellas!
Mike: [Italian accent] Hey, Tony! Hey, hey, hey! Tony! Pow, pow, pow, pow, pow!
Sulley: Tony! Ba-da-bing!
Tony: [chuckling] I hear somebody's close to breaking the all-time scare record.
Sulley: Ah, just trying to make sure there's enough scream to go around.
[The grosser tosses Sulley and Mike two pieces of fruit]
Tony: Hey! On the house!
Mike: Hey, thanks!
Sulley: Grazie!
Mike: Ba-da-bing!
[Sulley and Mike pass a gelatinous monster who suddenly oozes through a grate and into the sewer below, leaving only eyes and teeth atop the grate]
Blobby: Oh, great.
[Sulley and Mike wait to cross next to a giant monster, Ted. Because of his height, we only see Ted's massive legs]
Sulley: [yelling up to Ted] Hey, Ted! Good morning!
[Ted answers. The traffic sign changes from "DON'T STALK" to "STALK". Sulley, Mike, and Ted cross]
Sulley: See that, Mikey? Ted's walking to work.
Mike: Big deal. Guy takes five steps and he's there.
[Close on billboard advertising Monsters, Inc. The Monsters Incorporated parking lot fills with cars as workers stream into the enormous building. Various Monster employees greet Mike and Sulley as they enter]
Ricky: Morning, Sulley.
Sulley: Morning, Ricky.
Jerry: Hey, it's the Sullster!
Sulley: See you on the scare floor, buddy!
Mike: Hey, Marge. Hey, how was jury duty?
Employee #1: Morning, Sulley!
Employee #2: How're you doing, big guy?
[Twelve scarer of the month photographs, all of Sulley, hang on a lobby wall. Two geeky monsters, Smitty and Needleman, straighten one of them]
Needleman: Hey, it's still leaning to the left.
Smitty: It is not!
Sulley: Hey, fellas. Hey, Jerry.
Jerry: Morning!
[The geeks hear Sulley's voice and run up to him]
Needleman: Hey, Mr. Sullivan!
Sulley: Guys, I told you, call me Sulley.
[The geeks laugh like school girls]
Smitty: I don't think so.
Needleman: We just wanted to wish you good luck today.
Mike: Hey. Hey, hey, hey, hey! Come on, get lost, you two. You're making him lose his focus.
Needleman: [worried] Oh. Sorry.
Sulley: See you later, fellas.
[Sulley heads off with Mike]
Smitty: [calling after] Go get 'em, Mr. Sullivan!
Needleman: Quiet! You'll make him lose his focus.
Smitty: Oh, no. [calling after again] Sorry!
Needleman: Shut up!
[Celia is answering phone calls]
Celia: Monsters, Inc. Please hold. Monsters, Inc. I'll connect you. Ms. Fearmonger is on vacation. Would you like her voice mail?
[Sulley and Mike approach the desk]
Mike: Oh, Schmoopsie-poo.
[Celia turns with a big, bright smile. So do a collection of snakes, which we now realize make up Celia's hair]
Celia: Googley Bear!
[Her snakes sigh contentedly]
Mike: Happy birthday.
Celia: Oh, Googley-woogley, you remembered!
[Celia leans forward and gently rubs Mike's head. They're nauseatingly cute together]
Celia: Hey, Sulley-wulley.
Sulley: Oh, hey Celia Weila. [Clears throat] Happy birthday.
Celia: Thanks. So, uh... are we going anywhere special tonight?
Mike: I just got us into a little place called, um...Harryhausen's.
Celia: [gasps] Harryhausen's?! But it's impossible to get a reservation there.
Mike: Not for Googlie Bear. [Celia giggles] I will see you at quittin' time, and not a minute later.
Celia: Okay, sweetheart.
[Mike dances out of the lobby]
Mike: Think romantical thoughts. [singing] You and me / Me and you / Both of us together!?
[Mike opens a locker door and grabs a giant, clear bowl]
Mike: You know pal she the one. That's it she is the one.
Sulley: I'm so happy for you.
Mike: Oh, and, uh, thanks for hooking me up with those reservations.
Sulley: Oh, no problem. The under name Googley Bear.
Mike: Oh, good idea. You know that's wasn't very funny. What the…
Randall: Wazowski! What do you know.

George: Keep the door coming. I'm on the roll today.
Charlie: George and I are like brothers. [Gasps] 2319! We have a 2319!
P.A.: Red alert! Red alert! Red alert! Red alert! Red alert! George Sanderson please remain motionless. Prepare for decontamination.
George: Get it off!
Jerry: Duck and cover people!
Mr. Waternoose: Oh, not the CDA?!
CDA: Go! Go! Go!

Sulley: Oh, I'm gonna head home and work out some more.
Mike: Again? You know there's more to life than scaring. Hey, Can I borrow your dodorant?
Sulley: Yeah, I got, uh, smelly garbage or old dumpster.
Mike: You got, uh, low tide.
Sulley: No.
Mike: How about wet dog?
Sulley: Yep. Stink it up.

Mike: [to Sulley] You know, sometimes I feel so romantic, I think I should just marry myself!
Sulley: Give me a break, Mike...
Mike: What a night of romance I've got ahead a me! Tonight is about me and Celia! Hoo-hoo, the loveboat is about to set sail! [imitates the sound of a ship’s horn] I'm telling you, pal, I see her face and it makes my heart go- [finds himself face-to-face with Roz] YIKES!
Roz: [sternly] Hello, Mr. Wazowski. Fun-filled evening planned for tonight?
Mike: Well, as a matter of fact-
Roz: And I'm sure you filed your paperwork correctly...for once! [silence] Your stunned silence is very reassuring! [leaves]
Mike: Oh, no, my scare reports! I left them on my desk! If I'm not at the restaurant in five minutes, they're gonna give our table away, what am I gonna tell… [Celia comes up to Mike] Schmoopsie-Poo.
Celia: Hey Googly Bear, wanna get going?
Mike: Do I ever? It's just that...Uh...
Celia: What?
Mike: There's a small-
Celia: I don't understand.
Sulley: It's just-I forgot about some paperwork I was supposed to file! Mike was reminding me, thanks buddy.
Mike: I was? I mean, I was! Yeah, I was.
Celia: Okay, let's go then.
Mike: We're going! [whispering to Sulley] On the desk, Sulley. The pink copies go to accounting, the fuchsia ones go to purchasing, and the goldenrod ones go to Roz. [Celia pulls him away; he comes back] Leave the puce! [gets pulled away again]
Sulley: [to himself] So the pink copies go to purchasing, and the fuchsia ones go to Roz. No, the fuchsia ones go to purchasing and the goldenrod ones go to Roz. Man, I have no idea what puce is... [looks at some reddish-brown files] Oh, that's puce. Hmm. Uh… Hello! Anyone?! There's a door here. Hmm. Hello. Hey. Psst. Anybody scaring in here? Hello. Yo. Hmm.

Celia: Oh, Michael, I've had a lot of birthdays, well, not a lot of birthdays, but this is the best birthday ever. What are you looking at?
Mike: I was just thinking about the first time I laid eye on you, how pretty you looked.
Celia: [embarrassed] Stop it.
Mike: Your hair was shorter then.
Celia: Mm-hmm. I'm thinking about getting it cut. [the snakes in her hair look worried]
Mike: No, no, I like it this length. [the snakes sigh in relief] I like everything about you. Just the other day someone asked me who I thought the most beautiful monster was in all of Monstropolis. You know what I said?
Celia: What did you say?
Mike: I said- [sees Sulley trying to get his attention] Sulley?!
Celia: Sulley?!
Mike: No! No, no. That's not what I was going to say.

Mike: Sulley, the bear! The bear! Give her the bear! Give her the- [trips] WHOA!

Mike: It'll be their problem, not ours. She's out of our hair!
[Sulley bumps into Randall]
Randall: Ugh! What are you 2 doing?!
Monster: They're rehearsing the play.
Mike: She's out of our hair!
Randall: Can (we get) it, Wazowski?! So what do you think of that kid getting out, Sullivan. Pretty crazy, huh.
Sulley. Oh, yeah, crazy.

Randall: Kid needs to take off this few pounds.
[Thinking they have Boo in the container, Randall and Fungus dump it on the seat of the scream extractor]
Randall: Wazowski?! Where is it, you little one-eyed crettin?!
Mike: Okay. First of all, it's cretin! If you're gonna threaten me, do it properly. Second of all, you're nuts if you think kidnapping me is gonna help you cheat your way to the top!?
Randall: [chuckles nastily] You still think this is about that stupid scare record?
Mike: Well... I did. right until you chuckled, like that... and now I'm thinkin' I should just get out of here. [gasps]
Randall: [the lap bar comes down locks Mike in] I am about to revolutionize the scaring industry, and when I do, even the great James P. Sullivan is gonna be working for me. [Boo and Sulley are seen behind some pipes witnessing what’s going on]
Mike: Well, somebody's certainly been a busy bee.
Randall: First I need to know where the kid is, and you're gonna tell me.
Mike: Yeah, I don't know anything!
Randall: [incredulous] Uh-huh, sure.
Mike: I don't. I mean, I don't. Oh-oh. What's that? Come on, wait, wait, wait. Uh-oh. The thing is moving. I don't big, moving things that are moving towards me! No, come on. Hey. Randall.
Randall: Say hello to the scream extractor.
Mike: Hello. Come on, where you going. We'll talk. Come on, We'll have a latte. Come on. We can talk about this. What's that thing. What is that thing? Wait, wait, wait. Stop, stop! No, no. Come on, hey!
[Behind the pipes, Sulley backs into the darkness with Boo. Mike screams. The device is now inches away from his face]
Mike: Help! Help! Help! Help!
[The machine's suction pulls Mike's lips closer, then suddenly stops, powering down with a whir. Mike sighs, relieved. Randall turns angrily on Fungus]
Randall: Oh, for… What did you do wrong this time.
Fungus: I don't know. I calibrated the drive...
Randall: Go check the machine!
Fungus: [running to the machine] There must be something wrong with the scream intake valve.
[Randall sighs, frustrated. On the back of the console, he sees the cords wiggling]
Randall: Huh?
[He follows the cords along the floor around a corner]
Randall: Hmm.
[Randall sees that the machine has been unplugged. Fungus adjusts the machine. Mike whispers to him]
Mike: Psst! Fungus. Fungus. You like cars, huh? 'Cause I got a really nice car. If you let me go, I'll give you... a ride in the car. Please, Fungus?
Fungus: I'm sorry, Wazowski, but Randall said I'm not allowed to fraternize with victims of his evil plot.
[Fungus is suddenly pulled up into the ceiling by a pair of large blue hands. Mike smiles in recognition. Randall plugs the machine back in. It powers up. Randall enters to see Fungus strapped into the machine]
Randall: What happened? Where's Wazowski?
[Fungus struggles and grows pale as the machine does its work. Randall hits a switch on the console, turning it off]
Randall: Where is he?!
[A nearly albino Fungus points weakly towards the exit. Randall takes off angrily. Fungus collapses. Sulley, Mike and Boo burst from the tool panel doorway and run down the hall]
Sulley: Come on.
Mike: This is crazy. He's gonna kill us!
[they nearly bump into a group of CDA agents, inspecting a trash can]
CDA Agent: [to fellow agent] Careful with that. Could be contaminated.
Mike: We gotta get out of here. NOW!! We can start a whole new life somewhere far away! Goodbye, Monsters, Inc.! Goodbye Mr. Waternoose!
[runs through a side exit door, out of the factory. Sulley stops]
Sulley: No, Mike. Wait.
Mike: Hey, what are you doing?
Sulley: Follow me. I have an idea.
Mike: No! No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no...
[Thaddeus Bile is standing on one leg, sticking his tongue out at the simulation kid]
Simulator Voice: Simulation terminated.
Waternoose: No, no, no, no, no. What was that?! You're trying to scare the kid, not lull it to sleep?!
[The recruits sit in their usual chairs, taking notes]
Bile: I was going for a snake-slash ninja approach, with a little hissing.
Waternoose: How many time do I have to tell you. It's all about presence. About how you enter the room.
[Sulley bursts into the room holding Boo, Mike follows]
Sulley: Mr. Waternoose?!
Waternoose: James! Perfect timing.
Sulley: No, no, sir. You don't understand.
Waternoose: Show these monsters how it's done.
[Mike picks up Boo and walks away]
Sulley: No, I can't, sir, sir, you have to listen to me.
[Mr. Waternoose grabs Boo from Sulley and hands her to Mike]
Waternoose: Pay attention everyone. You're about see the best in the business. Reset the simulator.
Sulley: But-but-but, sir!
[Mr. Waternoose positions Sullivan on the stage and steps behind the control panel. The lights in the room dim, and the simulation kid resets]
Simulation Mom: Good night, sweetheart.
Simulation Kid: Night, Mom.
[Mike sets Boo down. She immediateiy runs towards Sulley on the stage]
Boo: [Excited to watch Sulley] Kitty!
Mike: No, Boo. No, no.
Waternoose: Now, give us a big loud roar.
Sulley: Mr. Waternoose, there's no time for this.
Waternoose: Come on, come on, what are you waiting for? Roar.
Sulley: But, but, but, sir...
[Mr. Waternoose is determined]
Waternoose: ROAR!! [With no other choice... Sulley mighty roar it is. The simulation kid screams. By now Boo has reached the stage, close enough to feel the full impact of Sulley's roar. His glaring and his teeth literally are genuinely horrifying. Sulley has become a gruesome, terrible monster. Boo's face widens in fear. The recruits are impressed; Applause] Well done. Well done, James.
[Terrified, Boo runs to hide. Sulley sees her go]
Sulley: Boo.
[Mr. Waternoose and Ms. Flint escort the recruits out of the room]
Waternoose: All right, gentlemen.
Flint: Right this way everyone.
Waternoose: I hope you've all learnt a valuable lesson in scaring today.
[Sulley finds Boo, hiding in the shadows, crying]
Sulley: Boo. [Sulley reaches for Boo, trying to calm and reassure her. Boo struggles to get away] Boo. Boo, it's me.
[She backs away from Sulley and trips over a cable. Her hood flops open, revealing her scared face]
Waternoose: [Gasps] The child.
[Mike rushes in to explain]
Mike: Sir, she isn't toxic. I know it's sounds crazy but trust me.
[As Mike continues, Sulley approaches Boo, who is petrified]
Sulley: Boo. No, no, no, no. It's okay. I was just. [Sulley reaches towards Boo. She cringes] No, no, no, no, no, don't be scared. It wasn't real. It's just a... I was just-- [Behind Boo is the bank of monitors, displaying a still image of Sulley's fearsome roar. This is the way hundreds of children see him every night in their rooms. This is what Boo saw. Sulley looks down at Boo, who is crying] Boo.
Mike: No...
[She run from Sulley towards Mr. Waternoose, hiding behind one of his crab legs]
Sulley: Boo?!
[Mike is still explaining the situation to Mr. Waternoose]
Mike: ...and he's trying to kill us!? The whole thing is Randall's fault!!
Waternoose: Randall.
Mike: Yes. And we can take you to his secret lab, which is right here in his factory.
Waternoose: How could this happen. Oh, how could this happen. Does anyone else know about this?
Mike: No, sir.
Waternoose: Good. This company can't afford any more bad publicity. Now, before we do anything else, let's take care of the child.
[Mr. Waternoose picks up Boo. Sulley watches her, full of remorse]

[Mr. Waternoose flips a switch and the simulator door ejects, just like the Scare Floor. It travels away on an overhead track]
Waternoose: Oh, I never thought things would come to this. Not in my factory. I'm sorry you boys got mixed up in this. Especially you, James. But now we can set everything straight again for the good of the company.
[Sulley tries in vain to catch Boo's eye. A huge metal door lowers into the station with a bang]
Mike: Uh, sir. That's not her door.
Waternoose: I know, I know. [Randall blends in and opens the door] It's yours.
[Mike and Sulley gasp and scream as Waternoose pushes them through]
Sulley: No! [Sulley pulls the door open and sees only more snow. The portal to the monster world is closed] BOOOOOOOOOOO! [Mike and Sulley are in the middle of a snowy mountain range. Panicked, Sulley opens and slams the door, but nothing changes] No, no! No, no, no, no, NO!
[Behind him, Mike watches angrily]
Mike: It's too late! We're banished, genius! We're in the human world! Oh, what a great idea; goin' to your old pal Waternoose! Too bad he was in on the whole thing! All you hadda do, was listen to me, just once! But you didn't you?! [Sulley continues to fret in the doorway] YOU'RE STILL NOT LISTENING!
[Mike jumps at Sulley in Frustration sending them down a hill. Then they get Company]
Yeti: Welcome to the Himalayas. Abominable. Can you believe that? Do I look like abominable to you? Why can't they call me the Adorable Snowman, or Agreeable Snowman, for crying out loud? I'm a nice guy. Snow cone?
Mike: Yuck.
Yeti: No, no, no, don't worry. It's lemon. How about you, big fella? Snow cone?
Sulley: Did you see the way she looked at me?
Yeti: Ah, poor guy. I understand. It ain't easy being banished. Take my buddy Bigfoot. When he was banished, he thrashed an enormous diaper out of poison ivy. [chuckles] Wore it on his head like a tiara, and called himself "King Itchy." That won't be so hard for you guys, though you know, how lucky can you get? Banished with your best friend.
Mike: He is not my friend.
Yeti: Oh, I-I just assumed you were buddies when I saw you out there in the snow, hugging and all that.
Mike: [about Sulley] Look at that big jerk ruined my life, and for what?! A stupid kid! Because of you, I am now stuck in this frozen wasteland!
Yeti: Wasteland? I think you mean, wonderland! I mean, how about all this fabulous snow, huh? Oh, and wait 'til you see the local village. Cutest thing in the world. I hadn't even mentioned all the free yak's milk.
Sulley: What-what did you say?
Yeti: Uh, yak's milk. Milking a yak ain't exactly a picnic. You know, once you pick the hairs out, it's very nutritious.
Sulley: No, no. Something about a village, where? Are there kids in it?
Yeti: Kids? Sure. Tough kids, dizzy kids, kids who climb on rocks.
Sulley: Where is it?
Yeti: Hey, it's at the bottom of the mountain, around a three-day hike.
Sulley: Oh, three days? We need to get there now!
[Sulley bangs against the wall with his fists, then an icicle falls from the ceiling and rolls to some sled equipment which he notices]
Yeti: You want to go the village? Okay, rule number one out here. Always… no. Never go out in a blizzard.
Sulley: We need to get to Boo.
[a snow cone gets thrown at Sulley from off-screen. The Yeti points at Mike]
Mike: Boo? What about us? [throws another snow cone] Ever since that kid came in, you've ignored everything I've said, and now look where we are! [throws a third snow cone] Oh, we were about to break the record, Sulley. We would've had it made!
[about to throw a fourth snow cone until...]
Sulley: None of that matters now.
Mike: None of it matters? Whoa, wait a second, none of it matters? [Sulley feels depressed because he agrees] Alright. that's… no, good, great. [the last snow cone rolls out of his hand] So now the truth comes out, doesn't it?
Yeti: [notices his tray of empty snow cones] Oh-ho, would you look at that? We're out of snow cones. Let me just go outside and make some more.
[leaves his cave so he can get his cones refilled]
Mike: Sulley, what about everything we ever worked for? Does that matter? Huh? What about Celia? I am never… never gonna see her again. Doesn't that matter? [Sulley has his sled ready and pushes it to the entrance] What about me? I'm your pal. I'm-I'm your best friend. Don't I matter?
Sulley: [sighs] I'm sorry, Mike. I'm sorry we're stuck out here. I didn't mean for this to happen. But Boo's in trouble. I think there might be a way to save her. If we can just get down to that--
Mike: We? Whoa-whoa, we? No. There's no "we" this time, pal. If-if-if you wanna go out there and freeze to death, you be my guest. Because you're on your own.
[Mike turns away]

Sulley: [is fighting the invisible Randall when he is hit with a snowball] Mike?
Mike: Look, it's not that I don't care about the kid.
Sulley: Mike, you don't understand.
Mike: Yes, I do. I was just mad, that's all. I needed some time to think, but you shouldn't have left me out there.
Sulley: I'm being attacked!
Mike: No, I'm not attacking you. I'm trying to be honest, just hear me out. You and I are a team. Nothing is more important than our friendship. [Boo approaches Mike, frightened] I know, kid. He's too sensitive. [Randall presses Sulley into a pipe and coils himself around his neck in an attempt to asphyxiate him. Sulley squeals in agony as he tries to pry Randall off his neck] Come on, pal. If you start cryin’, I'm gonna cry, and I'll never get through this. I'm sorry I wasn't there for you, but I am now. [Boo whines in terror] Hey, Sulley, I am baring my soul here. The least you can do is pay attention! [angrily throws a snowball; it hits Randall on the face, making him visible enough for Sulley to knock him out with a single punch, making him uncoil and slide onto the floor. Sulley catches his breath] Hey, look at that, it's Randall. It's... [realizes] Oh.
Sulley: Come on! [scoops Boo in his right arm, grabs Mike by the head with his left hand, and flees from the laboratory]
Waternoose: [pops his head from behind the wall as Randall regains his composure] Get up! There can't be any witnesses.
Randall: There won't be.

Waternoose: Sullivan! Give me the child. Give it to him. Open this door! Open this door! Hey. Sullivan. Don't do it!
Sulley: Come on. [Sulley and Boo go into the simulator room; Boo's door is attached to it. Waternoose believes it's actually Boo's room]
Waternoose: Don't go in that room!
Sulley: I think we stopped him, Boo. You're safe now. You be a good girl, okay?
Waternoose: This has gone far enough, James.
Sulley: She's home now! Just leave her alone!
Waternoose: I can't do that! She's seen too much. You both have.
Sulley: It doesn't have to be this way.
Waternoose: I have no choice! Times have changed. Scaring isn't enough anymore.
Sulley: But kidnapping children?!
Waternoose: I'll kidnap a THOUSAND children before I let this company die! And I'll silence ANYONE WHO GETS IN MY WAY! [angrily knocks Sulley out of the way]
Sulley: NO!
[Waternoose furiously lunges at the bed shaking the simulator robotic child]
Simulation Mom: Good night, sweetheart.
Simulation Kid: Good night, mom.
Simulation Mom: Good night, sweetheart.
Simulation Kid: Good night, mom.
[wall raises showing the simulator]
Simulator Voice: Simulation terminated. Simulation terminated.
Waternoose: [confused] Huh?! What is this?! But...! What?! What?! But...!
[The lights come on and it's revealed that Boo's room is really the simulation room; Mike and several CDA agents are standing behind the console]
Mike: Well, I don't know about the rest of you guys, but I spotted several big mistakes. You know what? Let's watch my favorite part again, shall we? [replays the tape of Waternoose over and over]
Waternoose: [in recording] I'll kidnap a THOUSAND children before I let this company die! [plays over and over again]
Waternoose: [shocked] But...But...
Boo: [crawls from behind the bed] Kitty.
Sulley: Shh.
Boo: Shh.
CDA Agent: Arrest him! Alright, coming up.
Waternoose: [getting taken away by the CDA] What are you doing?! Get your hands off me! You can't arrest me! I hope you're happy, Sullivan! You've destroyed this company! Monsters, Incorporated is dead! Where will everyone get their scream now?! The energy crisis will only get worse, BECAUSE OF YOU!
[Sulley hangs his head a bit]
CDA Agent: Stay where you are. Number one wants to talk to you. Attention.
[The CDA agents enter, and Number one is revealed to be Roz]
Roz: Hello, boys.
Sulley and Mike: [surprised] Roz?
Roz: Two and a half years of undercover work were almost wasted when you intercepted that child, Mr. Sullivan. Of course, without your help, I never would have known this went all the way up to Waternoose. [Boo runs into Sulley] Now...about the girl.
Sulley: [picks Boo up] I just wanna send her home.
Roz: Very good. [beeps her watch] Bring me a door shredder.
Sulley: What? You mean...You mean I can't see her again?
Roz: That's the way it has to be. I'll give you five minutes.

[Mike and Sulley are walking out of Monsters Inc.]
Mike: I'm tellin’ you, pal, when that wall went up, you should have seen the look on Waternoose's face. Woo-hoo! I hope we get a copy of that tape. Hey, you all right? Come on, pal, cheer up, we did it! We got Boo home! Sure, we put the factory in the toilet, and, gee, hundreds of people will be out of work now, not to mention the angry mob that'll come after us when there's no more power. But hey, at least we had a few laughs, right?
Sulley: [having had an idea from seeing what Boo's laughing could do] Laughs.

Teaser Trailer[edit]

[Walt Disney Pictures, then Pixar Animation Studios logo]
Narrator: Since the very first bedtime, all around the world, children have known that once their mothers and fathers tuck them in and shut off the light, that there are monsters hiding in their closets waiting to emerge. But that they don't know is, it's nothing personal. It's just their job.
Mike: There's nobody here.
Sulley: What?
Mike: There's no kid, there's supposed to be a kid. There's no kid to scare.
Sulley: Don't panic.
Mike: I'm panicking! 'Cause there's a total lock of kid here.
Sulley: Let's just check the schedule.
Mike: This is very embarrassing. Let me see... 9:00.
Sulley: 9:00.
Mike: Boy's bedroom.
Sulley: Boy's bedroom.
Mike: Out of Magnolia?
Sulley: [sighs] Magnolia? Give me that. It's Mongolia. Mike, does this look like Mongolia to you?
Mike: Yeah, well, kind of.
Sulley: Well, okay. You remember the 5th grade?
Mike: Yeah.
Sulley: When you spent all your time passing notes to Susie Boils.
Mike: Loved her.
Sulley: The rest of us were studying geography! This is not Mongolia!
Mike: Would you listen to this? Blame it on the little guy, how original. He must've read the schedule wrong with his 1 EYE!!!
Sulley: Mike, come on, now, don’t take it personally.
Mike: You were thinking that. You were thinking that.
Sulley: Don't be so sensitive. Come on, buddy, Little Binky.
Mike: No, don't do that.
Sulley: Who's your buddy?
Mike: I'm resisting you. Don't make me like you.
Sulley: Come on. Come on.
Mike: All right. [chuckles] Hey, guess which planet I am. Huh? Come on, look. Guess which planet i am?
Sulley: Okay, I'm going back to the break room before all the donuts are gone.
Mike: Don't you even get it, your big throw rug? [dog snarls] Oh. Nice doggy. [chuckles] Nice big doggy. Sulley? Sulley, open the door! (Open up!) Open the door NOOOOOOWW!! AAHH!? [dog barks]
