[[WMG: How did Mike get back to the Monster World so fast?]]
We never really get an explanation on how Mike got home, so how did he get home so quickly?

** We know ''from the ending'' that the CDA didn't want to hurt her. The characters don't know that until then either. Also, Mike and Sulley turning in the kid would be admitting that Mike and Sulley had the kid, which could be a complete career killer for the both of them.

[[WMG: Why do they continue looking after her?]]
* Early on, why do Mike and Sulley go to such lengths to keep Boo a secret? Mike doesn't see her as anything but a nuisance, and potentially a danger, until much later on, and even Sulley took some time to warm up to her. We know from the ending that the CDA didn't want to do anything to hurt her, even if Mike and Sulley had cared - why didn't they just hand her over to them or leave her inside the sushi restaurant when they showed up?

** In case you didn't notice during the beginning of the film, sneaking around and getting on peoples' backs without them noticing is kind of Boo's thing.

** Monsters are shown to be really talented when it comes to hiding themselves amongst common objects in a child's room, so maybe the parents would convince themselves that they were just getting worked up over a giant stuffed animal, or something. Or maybe that they all had a ''really'' scary dream. Or if the kids insisted that they really saw something there and refused to let it go, maybe the parents would call the police or something to have them investigate and see if there was evidence of a break-in...which, sure, is disruptive to their lives, but it still wouldn't intrude upon the monster world, and in the end, there'd be no harm done. (Aside from the probably-traumatized kids, which is arguably the whole point of the movie, anyway.)

*** Exactly. Even before Sulley realized that Boo wasn't toxic and was deathly afraid of her, he never actually tries to hurt her. He reacts to her the way a human might react to, say, a poisonous animal like a rat or a snake. And most people are fairly uncomfortable with the idea of animals getting tortured.

*** Exactly. Even before Sulley realized that Boo wasn't toxic and was deathly afraid of her, he never actually tries to hurt her. In the first scene when he nervously picks her up, he's actually pretty gentle, and places her on the bed (as opposed to just throwing her or something.) He reacts to her the way a human might react to, say, a poisonous animal like a rat or a snake. And most people are fairly uncomfortable with the idea of animals getting tortured.

*** A sequel comic made a joke about monsters smelling like flowers when they get swweaty. They just have different opinions on what smells good.

* From the look of it, me and my aunt came to the conclusion that the hinged door leads into the closet, which the monster must then proceed to slide open to continue scaring. Mike is apparently familiar with this procedure (it'd have to have come up in training), but Sulley might never have encountered one.
