  • [after starting his car] It's like we've released a panther.


Mike: [shows Sulley his new car] Ta-da! What do you think?
Sulley: What was wrong with your old car?
Mike: Three little words, Sulley: six-wheel drive! Come on, get in, get in, get in!

Mike: [about the seat] It's adjustable.
[Sulley presses a button and his seat goes low; he raises the seat, and then makes it move all around]
Mike: [impatiently] WILL YOU CUT IT OUT?!

Sulley: [to Mike, who is trying to close the hood] I'll get it! [accidentally slams hood on Mike's hand; Mike screams] Oh, sorry! Sorry! [Sulley presses a button, and the hood flies open, launching Mike into the air. Mike falls into the hood and the hood closes on him; the car phone rings. Sulley answers] Hello?
Mike: [on phone] PUSH THE BUTTON!

Sulley: [tries to readjust the rearview mirror after he bashed it with his head, but accidentally breaks it off] Oops.
Mike: [calmly] Get out of the car, please. [snaps] Get out, out, out, OUT, OUT!! GET OUTTA MY CAR!
[Sulley is forced out of the car and stands on the pavement. The car starts up and suddenly speeds off. Five of the six wheels roll past Sulley. The sixth one follows more slowly]
Sulley: Hmm, that's weird. The airbag didn't go off.
[the airbag inflates and blasts Mike back up the street; Sulley catches him]
Mike: I miss my old car. You know, with the vroom-vroom and the clang-clang and the bang-bang? [sighs]
Sulley: You, uh, wanna walk?
Mike: [exhausted] Yes.
