In order to power the city, monsters have to scare children so that they scream. However, the children are toxic to the monsters, and after a child gets through, 2 monsters realize things may not be what they think.
The monster in the opening scene doing the scare test is asked to confirm his name is "Mr. Bile" to which he replies that his friends call him "Phlegm" . Referencing that bile in the human body is commonly/casually referred to as phlegm.
All right, Mr. Bile, is it?
Bile: Uh, my friends call me Phlem.
Flint: Uh-huh, Mr. Bile, can you tell me what you did wrong?
Bile: I fell down?
Flint: No, No, before that.
Flint: Can anyone tell me Mr. Bile's big mistake? Anyone?
Flint: Alright let's check footage, right there. The Door! ...
In the commercial, we are told that Monsters Inc. matches children to the monster that is likely to scare them most. The monster in the beginning who demonstrated the 'dead door' said that his child was only six. Wouldn't they cut down on dead doors if they matched the door to a different monster who'd scare it more?
"Outtakes"/"Bloopers" are played during the credits, such as Sulley tripping over the top scarers. Also some of the cast do a performance of "Put That Thing Back Where it Came From or So Help Me"
