25 Monsters Inc Quotes From The Hit Disney Movie

Monster’s Inc., a delightfully ‘scary’ Disney/Pixar film premiered just after Halloween in 2001.

It offered us a glimpse into the ‘monsters’ that hide under the bed told from their perspective.

The city of Monstropolis is powered by the screams of children.

Mike and Sulley, partners who work on the factory floor called ‘Scarers,’ enter the human world through magical doors.

These doors lead to the closet doors of little kids.

Their job is to harness the resulting screams, so the energy company can convert them to power.

After one of these trips, Mike and Sulley discover that Boo, an adorable little girl with pigtails, has snuck into the factory.

The film was a fan favorite because of its unique story and lovable characters.

These Monsters Inc. quotes are full of witty words from Mike Wazowski, and funny one-liners from some of our favorite monster friends.

The movie teaches a valuable lesson about fearing people who differ from us because we don’t understand them, or have incorrect preconceptions.

I came across the question the other day that asked, “If Mike and Sulley were romantic partners?”

Which of these Monsters Inc. quotes is your favorite?

Monsters Inc. was not only loved by fans, generating over $577 million worldwide and becoming the third highest-grossing film of 2001, but it was also critically acclaimed.

Rotten Tomatoes gave the film a score of 96% based on 196 reviews.

The heartwarming plot about acceptance, love, and friendship is as relevant today as it was nearly 20 years ago.

There has been a question about whether Mike and Sulley were an early attempt at portraying a leading same-sex couple.

Sulley, the lovable blue furry monster, acts as a surrogate father for Boo.

He is not sure what to do with the human child, so he brings her home, a home he shares with co-worker Mike.

The two male characters share many characteristics of a couple, including living together, taking care of one another, and bickering and bantering.

They also parent Boo together.

This movie was all about love and acceptance, so it doesn’t feel like a stretch to think the studio would have made Mike and Sulley’s relationship ambiguous.

Do you think that Mike and Sulley are meant to be a couple in the eyes of the viewer?
