** To add to this, when does Sully put two and two together? When he and Mike are calmly walking away from the factory at the end of events. It's probably the first moment he's had all day to collect his thoughts without having to stress out about something.

* To get to the kid's doors, they've got to get past all the humans. The humans who (a) they think are toxic and (b) even if they aren't probably aren't going to look very kindly on a big scary hairy monster entering their village demanding to enter their kid's closets, please.

** MonstersUniversity shows that (at least some) new doors are created at Monsters University, tested, and then sent to Monsters, Inc.. Presumably doors are also created and shipped at Fear Tech.

Surely they all were educated in the scaring business or something akin to it, as revealed in ''Film/MonstersUniversity''. So why is it that almost all the monsters who had their jobs as scarers, and the assistants, display a comical trait in the job they got later? Surely not all monsters who worked as former scarers and assistants have the comical talent which is required, unless this is an extremely rare case were all are funny people.

We never really get an explanation on how Mike got home, so how did he get home so quickly?

** He may've just built another sled. Considering how much smaller he was, his wouldn't have needed to have been as large as Sulley's, so he could've built one using the materials that were left over after Sulley left. He had enough time to make it back while Sulley made his way to the secret lab, saved Boo, and initiated the fight with Randall.



They'd have to explain where the sudden surplus of scream energy is coming from somehow. The public (and the CDA, who was already leading a covert investigation) aren't going to believe that the scarers were able to increase their scream output tenfold and solve the energy crisis by themselves.

** I don't think that they knew at the time that the CDA was investigating them, since [[spoiler: Roz specifically mentions she was working undercover.]] Looking past that, the commercial shown at the beginning mentions that the company was looking at alternative scare methods and scream technology - if their plan to extract the screams from Boo and other children were to go through, they could cover it up easily by claiming to have made a breakthrough with one of their other alternatives. (Which was probably the whole reason for the commercial.)

** Career-ending, if not potentially going to ''prison'' for it. On top of that, Sulley's chief concern from the beginning was to find a way to send her back home, and the CDA wouldn't have been able to do that at all (especially since Randall still had her file and the card to activate her door). If nothing else, they might have had no choice but to '''''euthanize''''' her.

** 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?
