Ever since he was a kid monster, Mike Wazowski has dreamed of becoming a Scarer. To make his dream a reality, he enrolls at Monsters University. During his first semester, he meets Sulley, a natural-born Scarer. Sulley and Mike engage in a fierce rivalry that ultimately gets them both kicked out of MU's elite Scare Program. To make things right, Mike and Sulley -- along with a bunch of misfit monsters -- will have to learn to work together.

Character’s Quotes

• It’s my job to make great students greater, not make mediocre students less mediocre.
• Mr. Wazowski, what you lack simply cannot be taught. You’re just not scary. And you too will not be continuing into the Scare Program.
• You two have managed to accomplish something together no one ever has: you surprised me.
• Scariness is the true measure of a monster. If you’re not scary, what kind of a monster are you? It’s my jobs to make great students greater, not make mediocre students less mediocre. That is why, at the end of the semester, there will be a final exam. Fail that exam, and you are out of the Scaring Program. So, I should hope you’re all properly inspired.
