In the world behind our closet doors, James P. "Sulley" Sullivan and Mike Wazowski work hard. To be exact, monsters like Mike and Sulley pick up their paychecks at Monsters Inc., the utility company that generates energy for the monster world from our children's screams. These days, it's getting harder and harder to shock kids properly--they've been spoiled by television--so much so that now there's an energy shortage! One day Sulley, the number one frightener, accidentally lets a human child in, and as every monster knows that kids are poisonous, pandemonium ensues. Mike and Sulley decide to take the little girl back through her door into her room. But her presence is more than just a mere accident, and now, Mike and Sulley have to face an enemy within their own ranks. Can they foil a devious plot to rid Monstropolis of its power problems?« Less

SummaryAdd a Summary
In a parallel world, the city of Monstropolis is inhabited by monsters and powered by the screams of children in the human world. At the Monsters Inc. factory, employees called "Scarers" venture into children's bedrooms to scare them and collect their screams, using closet doors as portals. This is considered a dangerous task since the monsters believe children to be toxic and touching children is forbidden. However, production is falling as children are becoming harder to scare, so the company chairman Henry J. Waternoose III is determined to find a solution.

Yeti: [Referring to despondent Sully] Aw, poor guy. I understand. It's not easy being banished. Take my buddy Bigfoot. When he was banished he fashioned an enormous diaper out of poison ivy. Wore it on his head like a tiara. Called himself "King Itchy".
Mike: Psst, Fungus. Fungus, you like cars? Because I got a really nice car. You let me go, I'll give you... a ride... in the car. Fungus: I'm sorry, Wazowski, but Randall said I'm not allowed to fraternize with victims of his evil plot.
Randall: Say hello to the Scream Extractor. Mike: Hello. Hey, where are you going? C'mon, we'll talk! We'll have a latte!
Henry J. Waternoose: Kids these days. They just don't get scared like they used to.
Henry J. Waternoose: 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. Trainee: I won't go into a kid's room. You can't make me.
Mike: 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 in you that makes you look... Listen, I need a favor. Randall was working late last night out on the scare floor. I really need the key to the door he was using. Roz: Well, isn't that nice? But guess what? You didn't turn in your paperwork last night. Mike: He didn't... I... no paperwork? Roz: This office is now closed. [Roz closes the window on Mike's fingers] Mike: YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!
Flint: And leaving the door open is the worst mistake that any employee could make, because... Bile: Uh... it could let in a draft? Henry J. Waternoose: [Storming in] It could let in a child.
Sulley: Hey, did you lose weight, or a limb?
