** This troper has kids. Kids often want to draw, paint and put stickers on *everything*. Open door? Just another canvas for a creative child.
* The song sung over the credits has as its main line "Wouldn't have nothin' if I didn't have you". This line takes on a whole new meaning if you think about the double negative "Wouldn't have nothin'". Taken literally, are they complaining that because of the other person, they now have nothing? Takes the song from a FriendshipSong about HeterosexualLifePartners to a QuarrelingSong about a pair who are VitriolicBestBuds at best.

* Sulley had no idea that [[spoiler:he was in the simulation room when Waternoose cornered him. He thought he actually went into Boo's room (notice he tells her "Be a good girl, okay?" as if he intended to say goodbye to her, and he had no idea Mike had set up everything to catch Waternoose's confession. But Sulley clearly pushed the button on the control panel, which would have activated the door, so why didn't it? Because Waternoose ordered the CDA to cut the power to the door stations. They must have cut the power to the station in the simulation room too! (But they left the power on to the cameras and TV's for some reason...)]]

** But don't monsters use the same alphabet as humans? Why would the letters look different?

* Rewatching Monsters Inc, I just realized something - Sulley had no idea that [[spoiler:he was in the simulation room when Waternoose cornered him. He legit thought he was in Boo's room, and he had no idea Mike had set up everything to catch Waternoose's confession. But Sulley clearly pushed the button on the control panel, which would have activated the door, so why didn't it? Because Waternoose ordered the CDA to cut the power to the door stations.

** Or maybe Sulley just [[spoiler: pretended to push the button to trick Waternoose.]]

* The energy metaphors. The Monster world had hit 'peak scream' due to the cynicism of our world, though screams were also a form of renewable energy. [[BigBad Waternoose]]'s solution was [[spoiler:strip-mining screams, leaving a trail of damaged or destroyed children]] and hastening the end. [[TheHero Sulley]]'s discovery that [[spoiler:children's ''laughter'' had far more power than their screams]] was something like the Monster World discovering fusion; near limitless energy that wasn't in the least diminished by our world's cynicism. That most of the Monsters' jobs got much more pleasant afterward was a very big bonus.

*** I always assumed that her parents were worried, and went out looking for her, meaning they were searching their hometown whenever the monsters were in the room.
