Deliberate mistake: When Boo laughs repeatedly while playing hide-n-seek with Sully in the men's room, nothing happens to the electricity - no surges as with all other times she laughs. [In the audio commentary by the directors, they explained that it would've been distracting if an energy surge occurred every time Boo laughed, so they simply didn't address the issue. A reasonable course of action, but still a mistake.] (00:37:30)
Monsters, Inc. (2001)
Ending / spoiler

Starring: John Goodman, Steve Buscemi, Frank Oz, Billy Crystal, James Coburn, Jennifer Tilly, John Ratzenberger, Bob Peterson, Mary Gibbs
Mike and Sully are banished to the Himalayas, but return, Watrenoose is evil, Roz is the head of the CDA, they have to shred Boo's door after they put her back, Mike puts the door back together for Sully, and Sully opens the door to a happy little giggle. They find out that laughs are ten times more powerful than screams, they start the company again, but this time they make the kids laugh and Mike is the best of the bunch at getting them to laugh.
Henry J. Waternoose: Kids these days. They just don't get scared like they used to.
Trivia: The voice behind Roz, the number 1 of the Child Detection Agency and the undercover secretary, is actually a man.

Answer: He's not as much surprised as he is pleased to see her. She's going to be a little older than when he last saw her because it took Mike so long to rebuild the door. So if he's surprised, it may be at how much she's grown in that time period.
