The duo smuggle her back into the factory disguised as a baby monster and attempt to send her home. Randall discovers Boo and tries to kidnap her with help from his long-suffering assistant, Jeff Fungus, but mistakenly kidnaps Mike instead. He straps Mike to a large machine called "The Scream Extractor", which he intends to use to revolutionize the scaring industry and solve the monster world's energy problems by forcefully extracting screams from kidnapped human children. Before Randall can use the machine on Mike, Sulley intervenes and takes Mike and Boo to the simulator where scare recruits do their training. But Waternoose was expecting Sulley to give the recruits a demonstration and forces him to roar, which scares Boo. Mike tells Waternoose about Randall’s plan. But Waternoose, who is secretly in league with Randall, exiles Mike and Sulley to the Himalayas instead. The two meet the Abominable Snowman, who tells them about a nearby village, which Sulley realizes he can use to return to the factory. Sulley (whom by this time, has realized the true effects of scaring on children) prepares to return, but Mike refuses to go with him, caring more about their dream of breaking the all-time scare record and feeling betrayed when he decides it no longer matters.
