Discover a world where monsters are more afraid of children than children are of them.
Monstropolis is a strange and wonderful world, inhabited by creatures of every shape, size, and color. In this world, James Sullivan and Mike Wazowski are monsters who earn their living by scaring children. They are the best in the business, feared by every child who has ever crossed their path. But despite their fearsome reputations, James and Mike are more afraid of children than the other way around.
One night, everything changed. A small child accidentally entered the monster world, causing chaos and confusion wherever she went. James and Mike found themselves responsible for her safety, even as they struggled to maintain their status as top scarers at Monsters, Inc.
As they tried to return the child to her world, James and Mike uncovered a conspiracy that threatened to upend everything they thought they knew about the monster world. With their reputations and the safety of children at stake, James and Mike embarked on a journey that would change their lives forever.
Chapter 1: “The Best Scarers in the Business”
James Sullivan and Mike Wazowski were the top scarers at Monsters, Inc., a company that collected children’s screams to power the monster world. James was a towering blue creature with shaggy purple fur and a pair of menacing horns. He had a fierce roar that could make even the bravest child quiver with fear. Mike, on the other hand, was a small, round, green monster with a single big eye and two stubby horns. He was the brains behind the operation, using his wit and charm to distract children and set them up for a good scare.
Together, James and Mike made an unstoppable team. They had worked together for years, scaring hundreds of children and collecting enough screams to keep Monstropolis running smoothly. But despite their success, James and Mike had a secret that they kept from their coworkers and boss. They were terrified of children.
The two monsters sat in their break room, sipping on cups of hot coffee and contemplating their next scare. It was a slow day at work, and James was getting antsy.
“Come on, Mike, let’s go find a kid to scare,” James said, his claws tapping impatiently on the table. “I can’t sit around here all day.”
Mike rolled his eye. “Relax, Sully. We’ve got plenty of time to hit our scare quota. There’s no need to rush.”
James grunted, shifting his weight on the small chair. He had trouble sitting in the tiny furniture meant for monsters half his size. “I’m just itching to get out there and show those kids who’s boss,” he said, flexing his muscles.
Mike chuckled. “You mean show them who’s the biggest and hairiest, right?”
James punched Mike playfully in the arm. “Very funny, Wazowski. You know what I mean.”
Just then, their boss, Mr. Waternoose, burst into the room. He was a tall, thin monster with a stern expression and a no-nonsense attitude.
“Sullivan. Wazowski. I need to see you in my office,” he barked, his voice echoing through the small room.
James and Mike exchanged worried glances. It wasn’t often that Mr. Waternoose called them into his office, and it usually meant trouble.
The two monsters followed Mr. Waternoose down the cramped hallways of Monsters, Inc. to his office. The door swung open, and they stepped inside, ready for whatever punishment awaited them.
Mr. Waternoose sat behind his desk, his fingers steepled in front of him. “Sullivan, Wazowski, we’ve got a big scare tonight. I want you two on the job. We need to hit our scream quota for the week.”
James and Mike breathed a sigh of relief. They knew they could handle a big scare. It was what they did best.
“Consider it done, sir,” James said, puffing out his chest.
Mr. Waternoose nodded. “Good. And remember, the company’s success depends on your success. Don’t let us down.”
With that, James and Mike left the office and headed to the scare floor. They donned their scare gear and prepared to enter the human world to collect screams. But as they stepped onto the scare floor, they had no idea that their lives were about to change forever.
Chapter 2: “A Child in Monstropolis”
As James and Mike finish up the scare of the day, they notice something odd about their scare canister. It’s glowing a bright pink instead of the usual yellow, indicating something unusual. They decide to investigate further and open the canister to find a little girl staring back at them. They are stunned, not sure what to do with her.
James quickly realizes that this is not just any child. She’s different, unlike any child they’ve seen before. She’s not afraid of them, but rather curious and intrigued. Mike, on the other hand, is skeptical and worried about the repercussions of having a child in their world.
As they debate what to do, they suddenly hear a knock on the door. Panicked, they scramble to hide the child, not wanting anyone to find out. It’s their boss, Mr. Waternoose, checking in on their progress for the day. They quickly pretend that everything is normal, while James tries to distract Mr. Waternoose from noticing anything out of the ordinary.
After Mr. Waternoose leaves, James and Mike try to figure out what to do next. They decide to take the child to their friend and fellow monster, Roz, who they believe can help them figure out what to do. But as they try to sneak her out, they are caught by their co-worker, Randall.
Randall is one of the top scarers at Monsters, Inc. and is known for his ruthless competitiveness. He immediately realizes that they are hiding something and demands to know what it is. James and Mike try to cover it up, but Randall is persistent and eventually discovers the little girl.
Randall sees an opportunity to use the child to his advantage, believing that she could be the key to his success as a scarer. He tries to take her from James and Mike, but they refuse to let her go, knowing that she’s not just a tool for their success.
The three engage in a scuffle, causing chaos and commotion in the factory. They eventually manage to escape with the child, but now they’re on the run, trying to keep her safe and figure out a plan.
As they hide out in a dark alleyway, James begins to realize that the child is not just an ordinary child. She’s special, in some way. He’s not sure why or how, but he knows that they can’t just return her to her world without figuring out what it is that makes her different.
Mike, on the other hand, is just worried about the consequences of having a child in their world. He’s afraid of what could happen if anyone were to find out.
As they debate what to do next, the little girl begins to explore her surroundings, fascinated by the world of monsters around her. She’s not afraid of them, but rather intrigued by their strange and unique features. It’s a breath of fresh air for James and Mike, who are used to children being terrified of them.
Before they know it, they’ve spent hours with the little girl, showing her around Monstropolis and introducing her to various monsters. They realize that they’ve grown attached to her, and can’t just abandon her.
As the night wears on, they must come up with a plan to return her to her world, without exposing their secret or endangering her. It’s a daunting task, but they’re determined to do whatever it takes to keep her safe.
Little do they know, they’re about to uncover a conspiracy that could threaten all children, and change the course of their lives forever.
Chapter 3: “The Discovery of Boo”
James and Mike have just finished a long day of scaring children in Monstropolis when they hear a strange noise coming from the door to the factory floor. They approach the door cautiously, unsure of what to expect. As they peek through the door, they are shocked to see a little girl staring back at them.
James and Mike freeze in fear, unsure of what to do. They have been taught for years that children are dangerous and should be avoided at all costs. But this little girl doesn’t seem afraid of them at all.
The little girl, who introduces herself as Boo, follows James and Mike around the factory, curious about everything she sees. She’s amazed by the technology used to collect screams, the various monsters who work at the factory, and the way things are done in Monstropolis.
James and Mike are both taken aback by Boo’s fearlessness, and they start to question whether children are really as dangerous as they have been led to believe. Over the course of the next few hours, they begin to bond with Boo and even start to see her as a friend.
As they show Boo around the factory, James and Mike start to notice something strange about the way she interacts with the monsters. She seems to have a calming effect on them, making them less scary and more approachable. Even the grumpiest of monsters can’t help but smile when Boo is around.
As the day wears on, James and Mike begin to realize that Boo is different from any child they have ever encountered. She’s not afraid of them, and she seems to have a positive effect on their world. James starts to question everything he has ever been taught about children, and wonders if they have been wrong all along.
As they prepare to leave for the day, James and Mike realize that Boo has fallen asleep in their factory. They decide to take her back to her world, but as they start to carry her towards the door, they hear a noise coming from the other side.
They approach the door cautiously, trying to keep Boo quiet so as not to attract attention. As they peer through the door, they are shocked to see Mr. Waternoose, the boss of Monsters, Inc., talking to someone on the other side.
James and Mike listen in on the conversation, and they are horrified to hear Mr. Waternoose talking about a plan to kidnap children from the human world in order to increase the energy supply for Monstropolis. They realize that Mr. Waternoose is willing to do anything to keep his company profitable, even if it means sacrificing the safety of children.
James and Mike know that they have to do something to stop Mr. Waternoose and his plan, but they’re not sure where to start. They decide to take Boo back to their apartment and figure out a plan together.
As they walk through the city, they realize that they’re being followed by a strange monster they’ve never seen before. The monster seems to be watching them and following their every move. James and Mike start to wonder if Mr. Waternoose has found out about Boo and is trying to stop them from revealing his plan.
They hurry back to their apartment, hoping to hide from the strange monster. But as they enter their apartment, they’re shocked to see the monster waiting for them. It’s none other than Randall, a rival scarer who is jealous of James and Mike’s success.
Randall reveals that he knows about Boo, and he plans to use her to create a new type of scream that will make him the most successful scarer in Monstropolis. James and Mike know that they have to stop Randall, but they’re not sure how.
As they prepare to face Randall, James and Mike vow to protect Boo and keep her safe from harm. But they know that they’re up against a powerful foe, and they’ll need all the help they can get if they want to stop Mr. Waternoose and his evil plan. The fate of children and monsters alike hangs in the balance, and James and Mike are determined to do whatever it takes to save them.
Chapter 4: “The Conspiracy Unveiled”
James and Mike were still reeling from their discovery that Boo was not scared of them, but in fact, enjoyed their company. As they tried to figure out what to do with the little girl who had accidentally found her way into their world, they were interrupted by a knock on the door.
It was Mr. Waternoose, the CEO of Monsters, Inc. He demanded to know why James and Mike had not been able to scare Boo and why she was still in their possession. James and Mike tried to explain the situation, but Mr. Waternoose was not interested in their excuses.
As Mr. Waternoose was leaving, James noticed something strange. He saw Mr. Waternoose talking to another monster in a dark corner of the room. They were speaking in hushed tones, and James couldn’t make out what they were saying.
It wasn’t until later that night that James and Mike pieced together what they had overheard. They discovered that Mr. Waternoose was in cahoots with Randall, their rival monster from a different company. They had concocted a plan to kidnap children from the human world, so that they could increase the energy supply for Monsters, Inc.
James and Mike were horrified. They had always thought that their job was to scare children in order to keep Monstropolis running, but they had never considered the possibility that some monsters might be willing to go to such extreme lengths to achieve their goals.
Determined to stop the conspiracy before it was too late, James and Mike decided to investigate further. They snuck into Monsters, Inc. after hours and began looking for evidence to support their suspicions.
It wasn’t long before they stumbled upon a room filled with equipment that looked like it was designed to extract screams from children. There were cages, restraints, and machines that looked like they were meant to cause children pain.
At that moment, James and Mike knew that they had to act fast. They couldn’t let Mr. Waternoose and Randall get away with this.
But they also knew that they couldn’t do it alone. They needed help. And so, they reached out to their friends and allies, including Sulley, the big, furry monster who was James’ best friend.
Together, they formulated a plan to stop the conspiracy. They decided to gather evidence, expose Mr. Waternoose and Randall, and restore Monsters, Inc. to its original purpose of scaring children in a safe and ethical manner.
It was a risky plan, as Mr. Waternoose and Randall were powerful and well-connected monsters. But James and Mike were determined to see it through, no matter what the cost.
The next few weeks were a blur of activity. James, Mike, Sulley, and the rest of their team worked tirelessly to gather evidence, recruit allies, and prepare for the ultimate showdown with Mr. Waternoose and Randall.
And then, finally, the day arrived. James and Mike, along with Sulley and a few other trusted monsters, confronted Mr. Waternoose and Randall in the heart of Monsters, Inc.
There was a tense standoff as the two sides faced off. But eventually, James and Mike managed to convince Mr. Waternoose that what he was doing was wrong. They showed him the evidence, and they made him see that there was another way to power Monstropolis.
In the end, Mr. Waternoose and Randall were arrested, and James, Mike, and Sulley emerged as heroes. They had saved Monstropolis from the conspiracy, and they had upheld the values of Monsters, Inc. as a company that was meant to scare children, not hurt them.
It was a hard-fought victory, but it was also a moment of triumph for James and Mike. They had learned that sometimes, the greatest fear is not of the unknown, but of what we are capable of doing to each other. And they had proven that even monsters can show compassion and courage when it matters most.
Chapter 5: “Boo’s Adventure”
Boo was having the time of her life exploring Monstropolis. Everywhere she went, monsters looked at her with curiosity and amazement. She was a novelty, something they had never seen before. Children were their main source of energy, but they had no idea what they looked like, until now. Boo was special, and she knew it.
As she wandered through the streets, she came across a group of monsters playing a game. They invited her to join in, and she happily obliged. The game involved tossing a ball back and forth, trying not to let it touch the ground. It was a simple game, but Boo’s fearlessness and agility made her a natural. The monsters were impressed by her skills, and she felt a sense of belonging.
Next, Boo stumbled upon a group of monsters who were singing and dancing. They were having a party, and they invited her to join in. Boo had never seen anything like it, but she was excited to be a part of it. The music was loud and energetic, and the monsters moved in sync with each other. As they danced, Boo found herself losing track of time. She was having too much fun to care.
After the party, Boo wandered into a dark alleyway. It was a little scary, but she pushed her fear aside and continued on. Suddenly, she heard a noise behind her. She turned around to see a monster with glowing eyes and long, sharp claws. It was Randall, the rival scarer. He had been tracking her, and now he had her cornered.
Boo was terrified, but she didn’t let it show. She stood tall and stared Randall down. She knew that she was strong, and that she had to fight for herself. Randall lunged at her, but Boo dodged his attacks with ease. She was quick and nimble, and Randall struggled to keep up. Finally, she landed a kick to his stomach, and he stumbled backwards. Boo took the opportunity to run away.
As she ran through the streets, Boo realized that she was lost. She had no idea where she was or how to get back to James and Mike. She started to panic, but then she saw a familiar face. It was Sulley, and he was looking for her.
“Boo, there you are!” he exclaimed, scooping her up into his arms.
Boo was relieved to see Sulley. He was her protector, and she knew that he would keep her safe. Together, they made their way through the city, Sulley explaining everything to her along the way. They saw the factory where they worked, the restaurants where monsters ate, and the park where they played.
Finally, they arrived at James and Mike’s apartment. Boo was thrilled to be back in familiar surroundings. As she climbed into bed, James and Mike tucked her in and promised to keep her safe. Boo drifted off to sleep, dreaming of her exciting day in Monstropolis.
Little did she know, she had already become a legend in the monster world. They had never seen a child like her before, and they were in awe of her courage and strength. Boo was a hero, and she didn’t even know it.
Chapter 6: “The Arrival of Randall”
As James and Mike were taking care of Boo, they had one enemy they had not taken into much consideration: Randall. Randall was a scarer at Monsters, Inc., but unlike James and Mike, he would stop at nothing to be the best. He was willing to cheat, steal and deceive his colleagues to get to the top.
Randall had always been envious of James and Mike. He thought they were always getting the best assignments and the highest screams, but he had no idea that it was their hard work and dedication that had earned them their place among the top scarers. Randall had been waiting for his opportunity to take them both down, and he saw Boo as the perfect way to do it.
Randall had been watching James and Mike for a few days, and he had noticed that they were being quite secretive about something. He knew that something was up, but he wasn’t exactly sure what it was. He had seen them sneaking around with a small pink package, and he decided to follow them to see where they were taking it.
James and Mike were taking Boo on a little tour of Monstropolis when Randall struck. He had been waiting for the perfect moment to make his move, and he saw his chance when James and Mike were distracted. He used his chameleon-like abilities to camouflage himself and sneak up on them.
Randall grabbed Boo and quickly disappeared with her, leaving James and Mike scratching their heads in confusion. They were both in shock, unsure of what just happened. James tried to run after Randall, but he was too fast and too sneaky for him to catch.
Mike was frantically wondering what to do next. Boo was gone, and their cover was blown. They had to act fast, or they would both be in serious trouble. Mike came up with a plan to track Randall down by using the Monsters, Inc. doors that led to the human world, and they set out to find him.
They followed the trail of Randall’s footprints, which led them to a door that had been left open. They went through it, and they found themselves in a human bedroom. They quickly realized that Randall had taken Boo through this door, and they needed to find her before it was too late.
They searched the entire room, but they could not find any sign of Boo or Randall. Mike was losing hope, but James refused to give up. He knew that they had to find Boo, no matter what it took. Suddenly, they heard a noise coming from the closet. They cautiously approached it, and James opened it slowly.
To their surprise, Boo was hiding inside the closet. She was unharmed, but she was scared and confused. She had no idea how she had ended up in the human world or why Randall had taken her. James and Mike were relieved to have found her, but they knew they had to act quickly before Randall found them.
They grabbed Boo and ran towards the door, only to find that Randall had been waiting for them. He had been watching them the whole time, and he had no intentions of letting them leave. He threatened James and Mike, telling them that if they did not hand over Boo, there would be serious consequences.
James and Mike were not going to give up that easily. They had come too far to let Randall ruin everything. They stood their ground, ready to fight for Boo and their own safety. A battle between the three monsters ensued, with the fate of Boo and Monstropolis hanging in the balance.
In the end, James and Mike were able to outsmart Randall and retrieve Boo. They returned safely to Monstropolis with Boo in tow, and they knew that they had to be more careful than ever before. They had made a powerful enemy, and they knew that he would stop at nothing to get what he wanted.
As they returned to Monsters, Inc., James and Mike reflected on the events that had just transpired. They knew that they were lucky to have found Boo unharmed, but they also knew that they had a long road ahead if they were going to stop Randall and his nefarious plans. But they were determined to do whatever it took to keep Boo and the children of Monstropolis safe.
Chapter 7: “The Escape”
As James, Mike, and Boo made their way through the winding corridors of Monsters, Inc., they could hear the sound of alarms blaring and the thud of footsteps echoing behind them. They knew they had to move quickly if they were going to make it out of the building alive.
Mike led the way, using his knowledge of the facility to navigate through the maze of doors and corridors. James kept a firm grip on Boo’s hand, determined to protect her at all costs.
Suddenly, they heard a voice behind them. “Stop right there!” It was Mr. Waternoose, flanked by a group of security guards.
James and Mike quickly assessed the situation. They were in a dead-end corridor with no way out. They had to think fast if they were going to escape.
“Quick, hide!” James whispered to Boo, pulling her behind an oversized door. Mike quickly followed suit, crouching behind a nearby pipe.
Mr. Waternoose and his guards rushed past, their footsteps fading in the distance. James breathed a sigh of relief and motioned for them to move on.
They made their way through the next corridor, James and Mike leading the way with Boo closely following behind. Suddenly, they heard a loud hissing noise and realized they were heading towards a ventilation system.
“Quick, through here!” Mike yelled, pulling open the vent and gesturing for James and Boo to follow. They quickly climbed inside, crawling through the narrow ducts as fast as they could.
The sound of alarms and pursuit echoed through the vents as they made their way towards the exit. Suddenly, they heard a muffled thud and realized they had reached the end of the line – the duct had collapsed, and they were trapped.
“It’s no use,” James muttered, his voice heavy with defeat. “We’re never going to make it out of here.”
But Mike refused to give up. “There has to be another way out. We just have to keep looking.”
As they crawled through the ruined ducts, they heard a strange noise behind them. Turning around, they saw a group of monsters approaching – led by none other than Sulley.
“Come on, we’ve got to get out of here!” Sulley yelled, gesturing for them to follow him.
The group of monsters led James, Mike, and Boo towards a hidden exit, dodging guards and booby traps along the way. They finally burst through the door, the sunlight of freedom streaming in behind them.
But their victory was short-lived. As they made their way through the streets of Monstropolis, they quickly realized they were still being pursued. Mr. Waternoose and his guards were hot on their heels, determined to capture them.
Suddenly, they heard a familiar voice behind them. “Hurry, get in!” It was Roz, piloting a getaway vehicle just in the nick of time.
They jumped in and sped away, leaving the guards behind them. As they made their way towards the portal that would take them back to Boo’s world, James and Mike breathed a sigh of relief.
But their joy was short-lived. As they emerged from the portal, they found themselves face-to-face with the Child Detection Agency. They had been caught.
As they were dragged back to Monsters, Inc., James and Mike knew they had to face the consequences of their actions. But they also knew that they had done the right thing – and that they had saved the children of the world from a terrible fate.
Chapter 8: “The Ultimate Sacrifice”
James had always been brave, but he had never been faced with a decision as difficult as the one before him. He knew that if he didn’t act quickly, Mr. Waternoose’s plan to kidnap children for energy would succeed, with disastrous consequences for both Monstropolis and the human world.
Boo was safe, hidden away by Mike and Sulley, but James knew that he was the only one who could stop Waternoose. He took a deep breath and squared his shoulders, determined to do whatever it took to save the children.
As he made his way through the dark corridors of Monsters, Inc., James thought back to his childhood. He had always been afraid of monsters, just like the children in the human world were afraid of him. But now he understood that it was fear that was the true enemy, not the monsters themselves.
He arrived at the door to the scream extractor room, where Waternoose was waiting for him with a team of henchmen. James knew that this was it. He opened the door and stepped inside, ready for whatever lay ahead.
Waternoose sneered at James. “You’re too late. The machine is almost fully charged. Soon we’ll have enough energy to power Monstropolis for years to come.”
James didn’t hesitate. He lunged at Waternoose and tackled him to the ground, sending the henchmen scurrying for cover. But Waternoose was a tough opponent, and he fought back with all his strength.
As they grappled, James caught sight of the scream extractor. It was pulsing with energy, ready to drain the life from any child unfortunate enough to be trapped inside. Without thinking, James made a decision.
He pushed Waternoose towards the machine, forcing him closer and closer to the extractor. “You want screams?” James yelled. “I’ll give you screams!”
With a burst of energy, James let out the loudest scream he had ever produced. The extractor pulsed with power, and in a blinding flash, James was gone.
The room was silent except for the hum of the machine. Waternoose stared at the empty space where James had been, his face twisted with shock and horror. He knew then that he had gone too far, that the good of the many could never justify such a monstrous act.
Mike and Sulley burst into the room, ready for a fight, but they found only Waternoose, broken and defeated. They looked around for James, but he was nowhere to be found.
It was only then that they realized what he had done. James had given his life to save the children of the world, to prove that not all monsters were scary, and that love and sacrifice could conquer even the greatest of evils.
Together, Mike and Sulley took down Waternoose and his henchmen, putting an end to their evil plans. They emerged from the room to find Boo waiting for them, her arms open wide.
But James was gone, lost forever to the extractor. Mike and Sulley would never forget his sacrifice, and they vowed to always carry his memory with them. Monstropolis was forever changed, but it was a change for the better, a change that had been bought with the ultimate sacrifice.
It had been a long and harrowing journey, but the defeat of Mr. Waternoose and Randall had finally brought about the change that was needed in Monstropolis. As James Sullivan lay in his hospital bed, recovering from his injuries, news of his heroic actions had gone viral, causing a wave of gratitude and admiration throughout the monster community.
Mike Wazowski sat by his friend’s side, a bouquet of flowers in one hand and a newspaper in the other. “Listen to this,” he said, reading from the article. “Thanks to the bravery of James Sullivan, Monstropolis has a new source of energy – laughter. For too long, we believed that screams were the only way to power our world, but James’ sacrifice has shown us the error of our ways.”
James smiled weakly, his eyes closing for a moment as he took in the news. “I’m glad,” he said. “I’m glad that something good has come from all of this.”
Mike nodded, his eyes misty with emotion. “You did something incredible, buddy. You saved Boo, you stopped the conspiracy, and you changed the world. That’s more than anyone could ever ask for.”
As the days passed, James continued to recover, surrounded by his friends and family. The monster community had rallied around him, offering their support and gratitude in various ways – from gifts of food and flowers to heartfelt speeches and parades in his honor.
Boo had returned to her world, but she had not forgotten James or Mike. She sent them drawings and letters, letting them know how much she missed them and how grateful she was for everything they had done for her.
One day, as James sat on his balcony, watching the sunset over Monstropolis, he felt a tap on his shoulder. He turned to see Boo, looking bigger and more confident than ever.
“Hey, James,” she said, grinning. “I heard you were feeling better, so I thought I’d come say hi.”
James smiled, feeling a warmth spread through him. “Boo! It’s so good to see you!”
They hugged, and James felt a surge of joy and affection. This little girl had changed his life in so many ways, and he was grateful for every moment they had spent together.
As they caught up, Mike appeared, carrying a bag of popcorn and a DVD. “Hey guys,” he said, settling down on the balcony. “I thought we could watch a movie together.”
They snuggled up under a blanket, watching the silly antics of cartoon characters on the screen. James felt a sense of contentment wash over him as he enjoyed the simple pleasures of life with his friends.
As the movie came to an end, Boo looked up at James with big, bright eyes. “James,” she said. “Will you come visit me sometime? In my world?”
James felt a lump form in his throat. “I’d love to, Boo. I’d love to see your world.”
And so, with a renewed sense of purpose and a deep appreciation for the value of laughter and joy, James Sullivan began a new chapter in his life. He continued his work at Monsters, Inc. with Mike by his side, but he also looked forward to the adventures and surprises that awaited him in the world of humans.
As the sun set over Monstropolis, James felt a sense of peace and contentment. He knew that his journey was far from over, but he was ready for whatever lay ahead – as long as he had his friends and his sense of purpose.
Chapter 10: “A New Beginning”
After their heroic efforts in saving Boo and Monstropolis from the conspiracy, James Sullivan and Mike Wazowski returned to Monsters, Inc. with a renewed appreciation for the importance of laughter in their world. They continued their work as top scarers, but now with a newfound understanding of the children they were scaring.
Boo had returned to her world, but James and Mike remained in contact with her, sending her gifts from Monstropolis and eagerly awaiting her visits. They had become attached to the little girl who had changed their views on children and would always hold a special place in their hearts.
As time passed, Monsters, Inc. underwent significant changes. The company had switched its energy source from screams to laughter, and with that change came a new set of challenges for James and Mike. They had to learn how to obtain laughter from children, rather than fear, and it was a difficult transition. But they persevered, determined to make Monstropolis a better place.
One day, Boo returned to Monstropolis, and the reunion between her and James and Mike was filled with joy and laughter. They showed her around the new and improved Monsters, Inc., and Boo was amazed by the transformation. James and Mike proudly showed her how they had adapted their scaring techniques to obtain laughter, and Boo giggled at their silly antics.
As they walked through the halls of the company, they noticed a new addition to the building – a daycare center for children. James and Mike were initially hesitant when they learned of the plan, but soon realized it was a brilliant idea. They could help raise a new generation of monsters who understood the importance of laughter and could continue the company’s new mission.
James and Mike volunteered to be mentors to the young monsters, sharing their knowledge and experience with the next generation. They saw themselves in the young scarers and were determined to help them become the best they could be. It was a rewarding experience, and they felt a sense of pride watching the young monsters grow and develop.
Years passed, and James and Mike had become legends within Monsters, Inc. They had trained countless scarers, and the company had continued to thrive under their leadership. Boo had grown up, but her memories of Monstropolis remained with her always. She had become an advocate for the importance of laughter and continued to spread the message to those around her.
As James and Mike approached retirement age, they knew it was time to pass on the torch to the next generation of scarers. They had trained their successors well, and they were confident in their ability to continue the company’s mission. With pride in their hearts and memories of all they had accomplished, James and Mike passed the reins to the new leaders of Monsters, Inc.
As they walked away from the company, they knew that their legacy would live on. They had helped shape the future of Monstropolis, and their impact on the company and the world would never be forgotten. And as they looked up at the sky, they saw a shooting star and knew that it was a sign that their journey was far from over. There were still adventures to be had and lessons to be learned. But for now, James Sullivan and Mike Wazowski, the best scarers in the business, were ready to embark on their next adventure.

A horn sounds, signaling the start of their mission.
Time to scare some kids.
INT. CHILD’S BEDROOM – NIGHT
James and Mike sneak into a child’s bedroom, hiding under the bed.
Okay, Sulley, you take the left side, I’ll take the right.
They both jump out from under the bed, roaring and scaring the child.
INT. MONSTERS, INC. FACTORY – NIGHT
Back at the factory, James and Mike high-five each other, victorious.
Another successful scare.
We’re on fire tonight!
Suddenly, a door opens and a child enters the factory.
Mike, we’ve got a code 2319!
They quickly hide the child in a nearby locker before the authorities arrive.
What is going on here?
James and Mike nervously try to cover their tracks.
Uh, it’s just a routine scare, sir.
I see. Well, be careful.
As Mr. Waternoose leaves, James and Mike breathe a sigh of relief.
That was too close.
We need to find a way to get that kid back home before anyone else finds out.
Agreed. But how?
INT. MONSTERS, INC. FACTORY – DAY
James and Mike are rushing down the factory floor, trying to avoid detection from their colleagues. Mike has a small girl, BOO, in his arms.
Whew! That was close.
Yeah, we can’t have anyone seeing her. They’ll think we’re crazy!
Mike nods and scurries through a door, James follows. The two find themselves in an abandoned room littered with scrap metal and rusted machinery.
Okay, we can lay low here for awhile.
James sets Boo down on a stool, as the little girl looks around the room with wonderment.
Wow, this place is cool!
James and Mike share a look of confusion. They’ve never had a child react positively to the monster world before.
Why isn’t she scared?
Maybe she’s just a brave kid.
The room starts to shake violently, throwing James and Mike off balance. Boo screams.
What is happening?!
(looking out a window)
James turns to see Randall, a menacing monster with chameleon-like abilities, chasing after them.
We have to get out of here!
Mike grabs Boo and the three of them make a run for it, dodging falling debris and narrowly avoiding Randall’s grasp.
As they reach the door, James turns back to look at Randall, who is now right on their tail.
Oh no, he’s right behind us!
Mike swiftly slams the door shut, trapping Randall outside.
We have to get Boo back to her world.
You’re right, but how are we going to do that?
James Sullivan (Sully) – a big, blue, furry monster with a heart of gold and a love for scaring kids.
Mike Wazowski – a one-eyed, green monster with a quick wit and a knack for getting into trouble.
Boo – a fearless and curious little girl who accidentally enters the monster world.
Randall Boggs – a sneaky and competitive scarer who stops at nothing to beat Sully and Mike.
Mr. Waternoose – the CEO of Monsters, Inc. with a hidden agenda.
Setting: Monsters, Inc., a company that collects children’s screams to power their world.
Mike: “We gotta get her back to her world, Sully!”
Sully: “I know, but how? We can’t let anyone know she’s here or we’ll all be in big trouble.”
Boo: “Why are you guys so scared of me? You’re just like my stuffed animals back home.”
Mike: “Because, Boo, you’re a human. And humans are dangerous to us monsters.”
Sully: “But there’s something different about you, Boo. You’re not like any other child we’ve ever encountered.”
James and Mike have just discovered Boo’s presence in their world and are trying to figure out how to return her to her world. Boo, however, is having the time of her life exploring Monstropolis.
INT. MONSTERS, INC. – DAY
Sully and Mike are huddled in Sully’s office, trying to come up with a plan.
We can’t just let her run around here. It’s too dangerous.
I know, but how do we get her back to her world without anyone finding out?
Suddenly, the door bursts open and Boo runs in, giggling.
Look, Sully! I found a room full of doors!
Sully and Mike exchange a worried look.
We have to get her out of here before Randall or Mr. Waternoose find out she’s here.
But how? We can’t just carry her out in the open.
Why are you guys so scared of me? I’m not scary.
Sully and Mike look at each other in surprise. They’ve never heard a child talk like that before.
There’s something different about her, Mike. I can feel it.
Well, whether she’s different or not, we have to find a way to get her back to her world. And fast.
Sully nods in agreement.
Okay, let’s go check out these doors Boo found. Maybe we can find a way back to her world.
The three of them head out of the office, determined to find a way to return Boo to her world.
INT. MONSTERS, INC. – CEO OFFICE – DAY
James and Mike stand before Mr. Waternoose’s desk, looking uneasy.
Have a seat, boys.
They take a seat in front of his desk.
MR. WATERSNOOSE (CONT’D)
We have big plans for Monsters, Inc. A new energy source that will revolutionize our world. But it requires… more screams.
More screams? But we’re already at capacity.
Exactly. Which is why we need to take a more… drastic approach.
Mike looks worried.
What kind of approach?
Mr. Waternoose leans forward, his voice lowering.
We need to kidnap children.
James and Mike look at each other in shock.
That’s… that’s illegal, sir.
It’s for the greater good of our world, James. You understand that, don’t you?
James hesitates, unsure.
We can’t do this, sir. It’s wrong.
Mr. Waternoose stands up, his face darkening.
You two have been at the top of your game for far too long. Maybe it’s time to retire.
James and Mike exchange a worried look as Mr. Waternoose turns and walks out of the office. They know what they have to do – stop Mr. Waternoose’s plan and protect the children of the world.
INT. MONSTERS, INC. – BOO’S ROOM – DAY
James and Mike peek into Boo’s room, amazed at what they see.
Wow, would you look at that? She’s got a whole room full of toys and books!
Yeah, and it looks like she’s having the time of her life.
Boo notices the monsters and runs over to greet them.
James! Mike! Look at all my toys!
We see that, Boo. It looks like you’re having a lot of fun here.
You’ve got quite the collection, Boo.
Yep! I love all my toys. But I think my favorite is this one.
She holds up a stuffed animal, a one-eyed monster with green fur.
This is Sully.
James and Mike exchange a look, both of them shocked at the coincidence.
Sully? That’s a funny name for a monster.
Yeah, it really is. Almost as funny as Wazowski.
Boo laughs at their banter, not noticing the tension between the two monsters.
I love playing with Sully. He’s my favorite toy.
James and Mike exchange another look, both of them realizing how much they have in common with Sully.
Boo, we’re so glad you’re having a good time. But we have to go now.
Aw, do you have to?
Yeah, we do. But we’ll come visit you again soon, okay?
Boo smiles and waves as James and Mike exit her room. They both can’t help but feel a sense of longing as they leave, knowing they have a lot to think about.
INT. MONSTERS, INC. – DAY
James and Mike are walking down a hall, discussing how to keep Boo safe. Suddenly, they hear a noise behind them. They turn around to see Randall, a rival scarer, standing there.
Randall, what are you doing here?
Just passing through, Sulley. I heard you had a new “client.”
We don’t know what you’re talking about.
(laughs) Yeah, right. I can smell her from here.
James and Mike exchange worried looks. They know that Randall is dangerous and will stop at nothing to get what he wants.
You can’t have her, Randall. We’re taking her back to her world.
Oh, I don’t think so. I’ve been wanting to get my hands on a human child for a long time. And now, she’s right here in front of me.
Suddenly, Boo appears from behind James and Mike.
Randall steps towards her, but James and Mike stand in his way.
You’re not taking her, Randall.
We’ll see about that.
Randall attacks James and Mike, causing chaos in the hallway. Boo runs away and hides in a closet as the fight continues.
Finally, James and Mike manage to subdue Randall and send him away. They rush to find Boo and make sure she’s okay.
INT. CLOSET – DAY
James and Mike find Boo huddled in a corner, shaking with fear.
It’s okay, Boo. We’ve got you.
We won’t let Randall hurt you.
Boo clings to James and Mike, grateful to have them as her protectors.
INT. MONSTERS, INC. – CONTINUOUS
James, Mike, and Boo run through the darkened halls of Monsters, Inc. as alarms blare in the background. They take turns looking behind them, searching for any signs of Randall.
BOO: (panting) Are we going to make it?
JAMES: (determined) We have to. We’re close to the exit.
MIKE: (out of breath) The door’s locked! We need a keycard.
James frantically searches his pockets, pulling out a keycard and swiping it at a nearby door. They all rush through, slamming it shut behind them.
BOO: (gasping) We did it!
JAMES: (smiling at Boo) We couldn’t have done it without you, Boo.
Suddenly, they hear a loud crash from behind the door. James and Mike press their ears against it, listening for any sounds.
MIKE: (whispering) He’s trying to break through.
JAMES: (thinking) We need to distract him. Keep him away from us.
BOO: (confused) How?
James glances around the room, noticing several large canisters of laugh energy.
JAMES: (grinning) We’ll overload him with laughter.
MIKE: (nodding) It might just work.
James and Mike quickly rig up a system to release the laugh energy canisters. As they prepare, Boo looks up at James with a worried expression.
BOO: (concerned) What if it doesn’t work? What if he catches us?
JAMES: (reassuringly) We won’t let that happen, Boo. We’re a team.
With that, they activate the system, causing the canisters to explode with laughter. The sound reverberates throughout the room, making it impossible to hear anything else.
As the laughter dies down, James, Mike, and Boo tentatively open the door. They peer outside, expecting to see Randall waiting for them.
Instead, they find the hallway empty, save for a few stray cans of laugh energy rolling around.
JAMES: (smiling) We did it.
BOO: (hugging James and Mike) You guys are the best.
They make their way to the exit, ready to return Boo to her world and put an end to the conspiracy once and for all.
INT. MONSTERS, INC. FACTORY – MAIN HALL – DAY
James stands in front of Mr. Waternoose, who is now revealed as the mastermind behind the conspiracy. Mike and Boo watch from a distance, behind a stack of scream canisters.
I’m sorry it had to come to this, James. But the energy crisis is too great. We have no other choice.
You don’t have to do this, sir. There’s always another way.
I’m afraid there isn’t. You see, the company’s future is at stake.
James sees the desperation in Mr. Waternoose’s eyes and realizes there is no reasoning with him. He turns to Mike and Boo.
Get out of here, both of you.
What about you?
I’ll hold him off. You two need to escape.
No! I don’t want to leave you.
It’s okay, Boo. You’ll be safe with Mike. Just promise me you’ll always remember to laugh.
Boo nods, tears streaming down her face. James faces Mr. Waternoose, ready to make the ultimate sacrifice.
Don’t do this, James. There’s still time to stop this madness.
I know. That’s why I have to do this.
James charges towards Mr. Waternoose, ready to take him down. Mr. Waternoose pulls out a scream canister and aims it at James.
I’m sorry, James.
The scream canister explodes, engulfing James in a blinding light. Mike and Boo watch in horror as the light fades, revealing James turned into a scream canister. Mike picks up the canister, holding it close.
You did it, buddy. You saved us all.
Mike and Boo leave the factory, empty-handed but with their lives. James’s sacrifice will never be forgotten.
FADE TO BLACK.
EXT. MONSTROPOLIS – DAY
James and Mike walk through Monstropolis, observing the changes that have occurred since the defeat of Mr. Waternoose and Randall. The city is now powered by laughter instead of screams, and children are welcomed with open arms.
It’s hard to believe this is the same place we used to work in.
I know, right? It’s like a totally different world.
They notice Boo and her family walking towards them. Boo runs up to James and hugs him tightly.
I missed you, Sulley!
I missed you too, kiddo.
Boo’s parents thank James and Mike for their help and invite them to Boo’s birthday party that evening.
INT. BOO’S HOUSE – NIGHT
Boo’s house is decorated with balloons and streamers, and all of her friends are gathered around a large cake. James and Mike are seated at a table with Boo’s parents.
(to James and Mike)
Make a wish!
James and Mike exchange a look and then close their eyes to make a wish.
Suddenly, the lights flicker and a loud banging is heard from outside. James and Mike quickly stand up to investigate.
EXT. BOO’S NEIGHBORHOOD – NIGHT
James and Mike run outside and are confronted by a group of monsters, led by a vengeful Mr. Waternoose.
You thought you could stop me? You thought you could take away my power?
We didn’t take anything away, Mr. Waternoose. We just made things right.
I’ll show you what’s right!
A chase ensues, with James, Mike, and Boo’s family leading the monsters away from the party.
INT. BOO’S HOUSE – NIGHT
Boo’s friends continue to celebrate her birthday, unaware of the danger outside.
Suddenly, the door bursts open and the monsters enter the room.
One of Boo’s friends, a young monster named Terry, steps forward bravely.
You leave Boo alone!
(advancing on Terry)
What are you going to do, little monster?
Suddenly, Terry lets out a high-pitched laugh that echoes through the room. The other monsters join in, creating a chorus of laughter that fills the house.
EXT. BOO’S NEIGHBORHOOD – NIGHT
James, Mike, and Boo’s family lead the monsters to a dead end. Mr. Waternoose is about to capture Boo when the sound of laughter fills the air.
INT. BOO’S HOUSE – NIGHT
The monsters are overcome with laughter, and Mr. Waternoose falls to the ground, defeated.
EXT. BOO’S NEIGHBORHOOD – NIGHT
The monsters flee Monstropolis, defeated and powerless.
INT. BOO’S HOUSE – NIGHT
Boo hugs James and Mike tightly.
Thank you for saving me, Sulley.
That’s what friends are for, Boo.
