29 Tiiiiiiny Movie Details That Are Just So Freaking Clever

Boo from Monsters, Inc. was in Toy Story 4.

We asked the BuzzFeed Community to tell us which tiny movie details they *almost* didn't catch in their favorite movies. Here are the extremely clever results.

Note: Not all submissions are from Community users.

1. In Toy Story 4, one of Bonnie's classmates on her first day of school is actually Boo from Monsters, Inc.

2. In Spider-Man: Homecoming, MJ is shown reading the book Of Human Bondage, which is about an orphaned boy who's sent to live with his aunt and uncle.

3. In La La Land, Mia didn't drink alcohol, presumably because her aunt died from alcoholism (which she casually mentions in her audition song).

4. In Interstellar, there's a ticking sound in the musical score when the characters are on the water planet. Each tick symbolizes one day that passes on Earth.

5. In Us, the ambulance number at the end of the movie is "1111," which is one of the several references throughout the film to the Jeremiah 11:11 Bible verse.

6. In Coco, there's a movie poster for the ~dead~ version of The Incredibles 2 in the Land of the Dead.

7. In The Social Network, the fake Facebook profile that Mark created to cheat on his final exam is under the alias "Tyler Durden," which references Fight Club.

8. In Hereditary, two girls at the party are watching a silent movie that features a guillotine, which is an obvious foreshadowing of Charlie's untimely end in the next scene.

9. In Baby Driver, Baby flips through the channels at one point and later repeats every single line of dialogue he just heard from the TV.

10. In Get Out, Missy accidentally hits her spoon against her glass, causing Georgina to momentarily break her hypnosis and spill the iced tea.

11. In Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Kylo Ren's boots leave footprints in the salt, but Luke's don't, hinting that he was merely appearing as a projection of the Force.

12. In Toy Story 3, the garbage man is actually a grown-up Sid, aka the terrifying little kid from the first movie.

13. In Love, Simon, Martin makes a subtle joke to Abby that actually serves as a clue to Blue's true identity.

14. In Tangled, Rapunzel's baby mobile has little Maximus and Pascal figurines on it.

15. In Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Nick Fury's tombstone quotes a passage from Ezekiel 25:17, which is also a famous speech from Samuel L. Jackson's other role in Pulp Fiction.

16. In Thor: Ragnarok, Hela notices that all of Asgard's "treasures" are fake, including the Infinity Gauntlet, which is a callout to Avengers: Infinity War.

17. In the John Wick series, a daisy appears onscreen every time John's late wife, Helen, is referenced.

18. In Frozen, the writers reference one of their favorite Arrested Development lines and have the characters repeat it.

19. In Mad Max: Fury Road, Nux's body paint fades away throughout the film as he regains more of his humanity.

20. In Finding Dory, Riley from Inside Out can be see through the glass at the Marine Life Institute during a school field trip.

21. In The Lego Movie, you can often see thumbprints on some of the characters, hinting at the twist ending that they're actually toys being controlled by real people.

22. In Thor: Ragnarok, the fallen Asgardian mural has a crack over Thor's right eye, which foreshadows his injury.

23. In We're the Millers, Jennifer Aniston's character wears the same outfit and hairstyle that was featured earlier in the movie in the cleaning service ad.

24. In Toy Story 3, Andy has a postcard from Carl and Ellie that's pinned to the board in his room.

25. In Her, Theodore sticks a pin in his shirt pocket so his AI will stay elevated and can see through the camera lens.

26. In Zootopia, you can clearly see two sibling elephants in Tundra Town who are dressed as Elsa and Anna from Frozen.

27. In Moonlight, Juan tells Little that he should never put his back to the door because you "can't see who creepin' up on you." At the end of the movie, he specifically sits facing the door.

28. In Spider-Man: Far From Home, one of the construction signs in the background references each stage in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, ending with, "What comes next?"

29. And in A Quiet Place, the pharmacy is almost completely empty, except for the bags of chips, because they'd make too much noise.
