Monsters Inc. is so Gooood

Last night I was reminded of how freaking good Disney/Pixar movies are when I watched 2001's Monsters Inc. on DVD. Billy Crystal's Mike Wazowski and John Goodman's Sulley are hilarious together and make for a really great movie. I hadn't seen this movie since I saw it in theatres and I definitely didn't appreciate it then as much as I do now. It's really funny!

Here are some of the great quotes I noticed during the movie:
MIKE: I think I have a plan here: using mainly spoons, we dig a tunnel under the city and release it into the wild.
SULLEY: Spoons?
MIKE: That's it, I'm out of ideas. We're closed. Hot air balloon? Too expensive. Giant slingshot? Too conspicuous. Enormous wooden horse? Too Greek.

SULLEY: Are there kids in that village?
YETI: Oh, sure. Tough kids, sissy kids, kids who climb on rocks...

NEEDLEMAN: So I said, "If you talk to me like that again, we're through."
SMITTY: Oh! What did she say?
NEEDLEMAN: You know my mom. She sent me to my room.

MIKE: Sulley, you're not supposed to name it. Once you name it, you start getting attached to it. Now put that thing back where it came from or so help me...
[Mike pauses, realizing that they suddenly have the attention of the entire scare floor]
MIKE: Oh, hey. We're rehearsing a - a scene for the upcoming company play called uh, Put That Thing Back Where It Came From Or So Help Me. It's a musical.
MIKE: Put that thing back where it came from or so help me... so help me, so help me and cut. We're still working on it, it's a work in progress but, hey, we need ushers.

In short: I love Disney movies and I can't wait for Wall-E!
