* If this came after a [[spoiler: Near-Genocide Route]], that would explain why the monsters are so scared of human children...

The doors require every large piece to function properly, but at the end, Boo's door still clearly displays the cracks from being shredded. When Mike adds the final piece, he closes a relatively large, irregularly shaped gap. (All of this only occurred to me because I was reading [[KurtVonnegut Slaughterhouse V]].) As per the cryptic parenthetical, the door can function with cracks (live with slit-shaped wounds) visible, but can't handle missing pieces (in the reference, triangular wounds, but more generally chunks of flesh ripped out--charming, eh?)

At some point after the end of ''WesternAnimation/MonstersUniversity'' but before the original movie, Waternoose encountered Mike and Sulley at the mail room and, sensing an opportunity, sent the duo to Scare Island as a means of testing one of the new scaring techniques mentioned in the commercial. Randall, by a ContrivedCoincidence, also got accepted on, and tried to get the two kicked off by beating them in the pursuit races. After the duo managed to pass all the tests with flying colours, Waternoose put in a word, and the rest is history.

[[WMG: There exists companies that harvest adult screams.]]
Even though it's not mentioned in the movie that they harvest anything other than children screams (at least until the end, when they started switching to laughter), that isn't the say that there aren't other companies that try out different methods of obtaining power. It's revealed in ''Film/MonstersUniversity'' that adult screams are more powerful than children screams, and the fact that Mike and Sulley, while they were stuck in the human world, knew that scaring the park rangers would power up the door, this implies that the monster world has knowledge that adult screams are a great source of energy, so it wouldn't be out of the ordinary for adult screams to be used as a power source as well. Also, the risk of exposing the monster world wouldn't really be a problem either, since of course most adults who suffer something frightening at night would simply just brush it off as hallucinations or sleep paralysis. The reason why children screams are a more popular and widespread power source is because children are much easier to scare than adults, so obtaining children screams are more efficient.

As an implication of this, Boo will be significantly older by the time Sully comes through the rebuilt door to her room, possibly three or four years older, and has convinced herself that the happenings of the film were simply a dream or a flight of fancy. She says "Kitty," in recognition of Sully, while still being half-asleep, and momentarily will be shocked that it wasn't all a dream.

It explains how Mike and Sully were able to get back to the monster world in time to save Boo. Think about it: At least an hour passes between when Waternoose pushes Mike and Sully through the Banishment Door and when Sully gets back to the factory to save Boo. Even taking into account the size of the fact and the need to transport Boo secretly to avoid the CDA, that's a long time to go before Randall and Waternoose are shown ready to use the scream extractor on Boo. They had the machine up and ready to run when they captured Mike instead of Boo, so what were they doing? Having a victory cognac and cigar? This also helps make sense of why Mike was only a couple of minutes behind Sully. Even though it took him longer to get to the village than Sully, the time Sully spent running through the factory was expanded through time dilation on the human side, so Mike got back just a couple of minutes later in monster time. It also explains how they can send scarers anywhere on earth without having a night shift. If human time and monster time were in sync, then there would be, during the roughly twelve hours a day when no one is scaring a significant portion of human children sleeping who never get scared. But because of the faster time movement in the human world, a single scare shift might encompass a whole day.
