* 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.

* Think about all the monsters that got banished. They don't know that [[spoiler: children aren't toxic]]. They will think that they're living in our equivalent of a radioactive wasteland which there is no escape from. Those monsters probably had families and a secure place in their home...all gone. Now they live in an entirely different dimension, nowhere to go, and must put effort into not being found by humans neither touching their poisonous territory. Suddenly banishment doesn't sound so lighthearted anymore...

* When [[spoiler: Mike goes to find Sulley after their fight]], he has to venture into an arctic climate with the blizzard possibly still going. Given his smallness and lack of hair, he could have frozen to death if he'd gotten lost.

* Take a close look around the training room: everything seems a little "off." The pictures on the walls don't look quite right (animals have too many heads, etc.). The letters painted on the walls don't look right either; some of them are backwards or the wrong shape. This is because they're approximations made by creatures who don't quite know what these things really are. It's like a zoo or an aquarium: an imitation of a natural environment and is slightly off in ways that only a human could see.

*** Which, depending on your luck, may not be much better, imagine accidentally walking into your closet to find another door in front of you and you open it out of curiosity, depending on where you are at the exact moment Boo's laughing power wears off, you may wind up either trapped in the Monster World before you could either another door, or in someone else's house in some completely random part of the Human World, either way, good luck getting back home!

** This line also takes on a different light when you find out about [[spoiler: Randall's scream extractor conspiracy]]. Roz probably suspects that Mike's not filing his paperwork properly because he's in on it, not just because he's distracted/lazy.

** Even assuming Mike and Sully just got ridiculously lucky and he can't make it back to the monster world, the movie implies they at least have a vague idea where the kids they're scaring live. He's got plenty of time on his hands (decades, most likely), and nothing else to do, he could conceivably hunt down Boo in her own world.

** The monsters might have added them as a form of identification. Another plain white door? Gotta do something to make it easier on themselves.

** This troper has kids. Kids often want to draw, paint and put stickers on *everything*. Open door? Just another canvas for a creative child.
