In Monsters Inc. Boo fights back against Randall and gives Sulley a chance to grab him by the throat and restrain him. Boo roars at Randall as Sulley holds him and Sulley says something like:

She's not a afraid of you anymore. Looks like you're out of a job, pal.

Randall then gulps.

They had a case earlier of a child not being afraid of a monster and they just shredded that particular door. Each monster has a stack of children they work with so why would Randall be out of a job because one child is not afraid of him?

Maybe it was just a small joke by Sulley, it doesn't have to mean that he will really lose his job. – Napoleon Wilson Jun 18 '13 at 8:57
I thought that too but Randall gulped in response to the comment which would imply that it is more than an off the cuff quip. – Stefan Jun 18 '13 at 9:08
After Randall doing evil things (Almost Through the whole MOVIE!) i think he is fired during the end of the film. – user5230 Jun 30 '13 at 17:32
Well he is banished by Sully and Mike but that is not just because Boo is not scared of him. It is because he is a murderous psychopath and they needed to put him out of action – Stefan Jul 1 '13 at 9:26

I think it's possible that Sully was just telling Randall that he was no longer scary anymore to Boo; technically, I don't think Randall would have been out of the job since he could scare other kids. However, Waternoose was arrested; and Randall might have been implicated with Waternooses's scandals, especially if that corporation learned about that scream-sucking machine...

True but he makes two statements, one that 'she's not scared of you anymore' and then he also states that Randall is out of a job. If he had just been talking about Boo not being scared of him why add the extra line? – Stefan Jul 16 '13 at 10:12
I don't think it's a second line ... more of a continuation of the first. More like there is a semi-colon between the two instead of a period. She's not a afraid of you anymore; looks like you're out of a job, pal. – Pᴀᴜʟsᴛᴇʀ2 Jul 17 '13 at 18:50
