Henry J. Waternoose Quotes:
Henry J. Waternoose: This has gone far enough, James.
Sulley: She's home now. Just leave her alone!
Henry J. Waternoose: I can't do that, James. She's seen too much. You both have.
Sulley: It doesn't have to be this way.
Henry J. Waternoose: I have no choice. Times have changed. Scaring isn't enough anymore.
Sulley: But kidnapping children?
Henry J. Waternoose: I'll kidnap a thousand children before I let this company die, and I'll silence anyone who gets in my way!
[Waternoose knocks Sulley to the ground and lunges at Boo. He instead finds the simulated child]
Voice: Simulation terminated. Simulation terminated...
Henry J. Waternoose: [confused] Huh? But... What?
[the lights come on and it's revealed that Boo's room is really the simulation room; Mike and several CDA agents are standing behind the console]
Mike: I don't know about you guys, but I spotted several big mistakes. You know what? Let's watch my favorite part again, shall we?
[replays the tape of Waternoose over and over]
Flint: 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.
[Turning to the Trainees behind her]
Flint: Can anyone tell me Mr. Bile's big mistake? Anyone?
[the Trainees look confused]
Flint: [Playing the Footage on the Screen above of Bile entering the room] Alright let's check footage, right there. The Door! And leaving the door open is the worst mistake that any employee could make, because...
Bile: Uh... it could let in a draft?
Henry J. Waternoose: [Storming in] It could let in a child.
[Randall cuffs Boo onto the chair at the Scream Extractor, preparing to extract her screams to impress Waternoose]
Henry J. Waternoose: Finally. I shouldn't have trusted you. Because of you, I had to banish my top scarer.
Randall: Ah, with this machine, we won't need scarers. Besides, Sullivan got what he deserved.
Henry J. Waternoose: Sullivan was twice the scarer you'll ever be!
Henry J. Waternoose: There's nothing more toxic or deadly than a human child. A single touch could kill you. Leave a door open, and one can walk right into this factory; right into the monster world.
Trainee: I won't go into a kid's room. You can't make me.
Henry J. Waternoose: You're going in there, because we need this.
[Holds out a Scream Canister, which lets out a small scream that it Extracted]
Henry J. Waternoose: Our city is counting on you to collect those screams. Without scream, we have no power. Yes, it's dangerous work, and that's why I need you to be at your best. I need scarers who are confident, tenacious, tough, intimidating. I need scarers like... like... James P. Sullivan.
Henry J. Waternoose: No, no, no, no, no. What was that? You're trying to scare the kid, not lull it to sleep.
Bile: I was going for a snake-slash-ninja approach, with a little hissing.
Henry J. Waternoose: How many times must I tell you? It's all about presence. About how you enter the room.
[Mike and Sulley, with the help of Waternoose, are preparing to send Boo home, but a huge metal door is brought out instead of Boo's]
Mike: Sir, that's not her door.
Henry J. Waternoose: I know, I know...
[Suddenly, Randal materializes in front of the door and opens it, which leads out to a Harsh Cold Environment]
Henry J. Waternoose: ...It's yours.
[Waternoose, holding Boo, pushes Mike and Sulley through the door]
Henry J. Waternoose: Kids these days. They just don't get scared like they used to.
[Boo, in disguise, walks up to Mr. Waternoose]
Henry J. Waternoose: Well hello, little one. Where did you come from?
Sulley: Mr. Waternoose.
Henry J. Waternoose: Ah, James. Is this one yours?
Sulley: Ah, actually that's my uh, cousin's sister's daughter, sir.
Mike: Yeah, it's uh, "Bring an Obscure Relative to Work Day".
Henry J. Waternoose: Hmm, must have missed the memo.
[Sulley enters the Scare Simulator room with Mike and Boo in her costume, willing to ask for help which can send Boo home, forgetting Waternoose had been expecting him]
Sulley: Mr. Waternoose?
Henry J. Waternoose: James! You're just in time. OK Gentleman. It's time for you to see how scaring really works.
[Mike picks up Boo and walks away]
Sulley: But sir, I just wanted to ask...
[the lights go out, as if it's nighttime, and the Simulator Child goes to sleep]
Boo: [Excited to watch Sulley] Kitty!
Mike: No Boo. I wouldn't...
Henry J. Waternoose: Now, give us a a Great Big Roar.
Sulley: Sir, can I just...
Henry J. Waternoose: Roar!
Sulley: But sir...
Henry J. Waternoose: ROAR!
[Sulley without choice, lunges out at the Simulator Child and lets out a load roar, causing it to scream. Little did he know that Boo was standing close by, watching in horror]
Henry J. Waternoose: [Applauds] Well done James. Well done. Well Gentleman, I hope you've all learnt a valuable lesson...
[Sulley notices Boo run off crying, terrified from his roar]
Henry J. Waternoose: [Being arrested by the CDA] I hope you're happy, Sullivan. You destroyed this company. Monsters Incorporated is dead! Where will everyone get their scream now? The energy crisis will only get worse, because of you!
[the Doors close as Waternoose is dragged out]
Henry J. Waternoose: What a day.
Sulley: It's just a rough patch, sir. Everyone knows you'll get us through it.
Henry J. Waternoose: Tell that to the board of directors.
Henry J. Waternoose: James, this company has been in my family for three generations. I would do anything to keep it from going under.
Sulley: So would I, sir.
Henry J. Waternoose: Say, I could use your help with something.
Sulley: Anything, sir.
Henry J. Waternoose: You see, we've recently hired some new recruits, and frankly, they're... um...
Henry J. Waternoose: Oh, they stink!
Henry J. Waternoose: I thought you could drop by the simulator tomorrow and give them a little scare demonstration, show them what it takes to be our top scarer.
Sulley: I'll start with the old Waternoose Jump-and-Growl.
[Jumps and growls]
Henry J. Waternoose: [Startled] Oh! Ha ha! That's my boy.
Henry J. Waternoose: [In the Distance] Finish him off!
[Randall whilst invisible hits Sulley with a Scream Canister, knocking him down, which terrifies Boo who hides out of the way in the corner]
Randall: You don't know how long I've waited to do that Sullivan!
Henry J. Waternoose: Well, Jerry, what's the damage so far?
Jerry the floor manager: We may actually make our quota today.
Henry J. Waternoose: Hmm, first time in a month.
