Roz, my tender, oozing blossom, you're looking fabulous today!

This morning, as I tore off yesterday's page from my Disney Desk Calendar, I was greeted by Roz from Disney Pixar's Monsters, Inc. Roz is one character I keep hoping will be released as part of the Walt Disney Classics Collection.

Roz (voiced by Bob Peterson) is the bookkeeper of the Monsters, Inc. factory. She speaks with a very rough voice and has a slug-like body. Roz has green-brown skin and a bit of grey hair on the top of her head and wears a red sweater. Mike Wazowski, James P. Sullivan's assistant, tries to avoid getting in trouble with Roz mostly because, no matter how many times he tries to remind himself, he almost always forgets to file his paperwork. She is revealed to be Agent 001 of the Child Detection Agency.

Here is a classic dialogue between Roz and Mike Wazowski:

Mike: Good morning, Roz, my succulent little garden snail. And who will we be scaring today?

Roz: Wazowski! You didn't file your paperwork last night.

Mike: Oh, that darn paperwork! Wouldn't it be easier if it all just blew away?

Roz: Don't let it happen again.

Mike: Yes, well, I'll try to be more careful next time.

Roz: I'm watching you, Wazowski. Always watching. Always.

Mike: Ooh, she's nuts.

I'm hoping they release more from this movie, too. As a matter of fact, I would love a sequel to the movie to be placed in the theaters, not direct to DVD. Too bad they went to laughter instead of scaring at the end. Truly a funny movie.

Also heard there is to be an indoor coaster in DHS from Monsters, Inc. Hopefully that will come true also.

I've always imagined that Dolores Umbridge from the 5th book of harry Potter (and the order of the phoenix) looked like Roz. So when i saw the movie, i was slightly dissapointed that she looked different.

I always pictured Roz as more the female animated version of Louie de Palma (Danny DeVito) from Taxi.
