Trailer Son: "Mama! Another gator got in the house!" Trailer Mom: "Another gator?! Gimme that shovel! Come here!" Trailer Son: (as his mother repeatedly whacks Randall with the shovel) "Get him, Mama! Get that gator!" Randall: "Aaaahh!"
—Trailer son and mom, after Randall enters their trailer home
The Trailer Son and Mom are minor characters in Monsters, Inc. They appear to live in a bayou, possibly the Louisiana Bayou New Orleans is famous for.
Their only appearance in the movie is after Mike has Sulley throw Randall through the door and destroy it to banish him to the human world.
Only their shadows are seen through the trailer window as the son calls to his mother that another "gator" got in the house; the way he says it, coupled with the presence of a shovel and the glee they show beating him up suggests that gator intrusions are fairly common. The mother then tells her son to give her a shovel, which she then uses to beat up Randall as her son cheers her on.
The trailer makes a debut cameo in A Bug's Life in the background when Flik goes to Bug City. However, no residents make an appearance.
According to the commentary, the "boy" is really the model of the kid from the simulation, albeit wearing a cap, and the "mom" is a bigger version of said model with a "bun" placed on the head.
