[Due to an argument between Mike and Sulley, the latter accidentally knocks down the Dean's scream canister and breaks it]

Mike:
I'm so sorry.

Sulley:
It was an accident.

Dean:
What, this? My souvenir from a lifetime of scaring? Accidents happen, don't they? The important thing is: no one got hurt.

Mike:
You're taking this remarkably well.

Dean:
Now, let's continue the exams. [to Mike] Mr. Wazowski, I'm a 5-year-old girl on a farm in Kansas afraid of lightning. Which scare do you use?

Mike:
[confused] Should I go up on the...?

Dean:
Which scare do you use?

Mike:
That is a shadow approach with a crackle holler.

Dean:
Demonstrate.

Mike:
[inhales deeply]

Dean:
Stop. Thank you.

Mike:
I didn't get to sh...

Dean:
I've seen enough. [to Sulley] I am a seven-year-old boy...

Sulley:
[roars loudly]

Dean:
I wasn't finished.

Sulley:
I don't need to know any of that stuff to scare.

Dean:
That "stuff" would have informed you that this particular child is afraid of snakes. So a roar wouldn't make him scream, it would make him cry, alerting his parents, exposing the monster world, destroying life as we know it, and of course, we can't have that, so I'm afraid I can not recommend that you continue in the scaring program. Good day.

Sulley:
Wait, what? But I'm a Sullivan.

Dean:
Well, I'm sure your family will be very disappointed. [ROR leaves the class; Sulley looks at Mike angrily and storms out of the class] And Mr. Wazowski, what you lack is something that cannot be taught: You're not scary. You will not be continuing in the scaring program.

Mike:
Please, let me try out the simulator. I will surprise you!

Dean:
Surprise me? I doubt that very much.

Sulley:
So... you guys are scaring majors?

Don Carlton:
[chuckling] We were. But none of us lasted very long. I guess we just weren't what old Hardscrabble was looking for. Don Carlton. Mature student. Thirty years in a textile industry, and then ol' dandy Don got downsized. Figured I could throw myself a pity party or go back to school and learn the computers.

Terry:
Hello! I'm Terry with a 'Y'.

Terri:
And I'm Terri with an 'I'. I'm a dance major!

Terry:
And I'm not.

Terri:
5, 6, 7, 8... [starts to dance while his brother rolls his eyes] 7, 8, turn! And turn... Why aren't you turning?

Terry:
Because we never agreed to do this.

Terri:
You said this was gonna be cool.

Terry:
No one said this was gonna be cool.

Terri:
Now I'm embarrassed.

Terry:
Now you're embarrassed?

Terri:
Yes, because it's in front of people!

Terry:
You should wake up embarrassed.

Art:
[rolls down the stairs] Hey, hey! I'm Art! New Age Philosophy Major. Excited to live with you, and laugh with you. [changes his mood] And cry with you. I thought you'd like to keep a dream journal!

Squishy:
Guess that leaves me. [Sulley suddenly screams once seeing him] My name's Scott Squibbles. My friends call me Squishy. I'm undeclared, unattached and... unwelcomed pretty much everywhere, but here.

Mike:
Well now that we've all been introduced. As captain of our team...

Sulley:
[cuts him off again] So basically you guys have no scaring experience?

Squishy:
[laughing] Not a lot. But now we've got you!

Don Carlton:
You're about the scariest fellow I've ever seen. Even with them pink polka dots.

Sulley:
Aww, thanks.

Mike:
Well, actually, I think I bring the whole package.

Squishy:
[grabs one of Sulley's hands] Your hands are as big as my face!

Terri:
[referring to Sulley] He's like a mountain, with fur!

Sulley:
Oh, come on. I don't even work out.

Art:
Yeah, me neither. I don't wanna get too big. [sniffs]

[After Mike gets on the bus to leave the university; Sulley suddenly throws himself at the window]

Sulley:
WAZOWSKI! [falls off the bus]

Mike:
AAAH!! (What the...? Sulley?) Stop the bus! [the bus stops, and he rushes off] Are you crazy?!

Sulley:
Mike, I don't know a single scarer who can do what you do. I know everyone sees us together, they think I'm the one running the show, but the truth is I've been riding your coattails since day 1! You made the deal with Hardscrabble! You took a hopeless team, and made them champions! All I did was catch a pig!

Mike:
Technically, I caught the pig.

Sulley:
Exactly, and you think you're just okay?! You pulled off the biggest scare this school's ever seen!

Mike:
That wasn't me.

Sully:
That was you! You think I could have done that without you? I didn't even bring a pencil on the first day of school! Mike, you're not scary, not even a little, but you are fearless! And if Hardscrabble can't see that, then she can just–

Hardscrabble:
[perched on a stone pedestal] I can just what? Careful, Mr. Sullivan. I was just warming up to you.

Sulley:
Sorry.

Dean:
Well, gentlemen. It seems you made the front page again. [hands Mike a newspaper, which tells how they were both expelled] The two of you did something together that no one has ever done before, you surprised me. Perhaps I should keep an eye for more... surprises like you in my program, but as far as the 2 of you are concerned, there is nothing I can do for you now... [smiling slightly] Except perhaps... wish you luck. And Mr. Wazowski, keep surprising people.
