Monsters University (2013)
Features characters from Monsters University
When Mike raised his hand to say "A clown running in the dark," his fingers show the same shape as the Vulcan salute.
Mike says, "Tauntaun grimace with an extra slobber." Tauntaun is the snow-camel from Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back.
When Mike makes Sulley do push-ups in the rain.
Toward the end of the movie, the Abominable Snowman appears as a mail room clerk at Monsters Incorporated. This is an homage to voice John Ratzenberger's role as mailman Cliff Clavin on Cheers.
The melody of the background music present when Mike first enters the university, particularly notable as he enters his first class, is the same as "Every Sperm is Sacred".
When the Monsters come onto the Scare Floor, they walk in like the Astronauts.
The ball from the short is graffitied on a wall in the first Scare Games challenge.
While having a dream, Mike says: "I know you're a princess and I'm just a stable boy."
One of the scarer puts his hat on young Mike.
One of the teens in the "Don't Scare the Teen" competetion says the line: "But Daddy, I love him!"
When Mike is training the OK team, he says, "If you walk by the door, you have to become the door." Casey Ryback says virtually the same line: "You walk by a hatch and you see the enemy, you become the hatch."
The Pizza Planet truck can be seen in the driveway of the JOX fraternity house.
When they first meet, Mike tells Randall to "lose the glasses" to become a more effective scarer. In L.A. Confidential, Guy Pearce's character wears similar glasses, and is advised to "lose the glasses" by his superior, when he was made a detective lieutenant.
The slow walking entrance is a double reference to The Right Stuff and Armageddon due to the presence of Steve Buscemi.
When the Monsters enter the scare competition arena, their actions and the camera circles around them are the same as when the gladiators first enter the Coliseum arena.
A poster with "Winds of Change" can be seen hanging up in Randall's room at the beginning of the film. This refers to the quote from the first movie when Randall says to Mike "Do you hear that? It's the winds of change".
In Squishie's basement, a poster of Mike's six wheel drive can be seen on the wall.
A statue on campus with the founder of where most of the film takes place is seen.
In this episode, the gang finds Charlie's Dream Journal. Charlie Day voices the character of Art who hands Sully and Mike Dream Journals when they join the fraternity.
A small statuette of a dinosaur skeleton is seen.
Hewy: "While I'm excited to hear a prequel for Monsters, Inc. (2001)."
A relief carving of Sulley is visible in the Witch's cottage.
