The Grand Unified Inside Out Scenes Database, as originally published.

A listing of Inside Out scenes was released by CreativityTheEmotion on January 21, 2018, under the moniker "The Grand Unified Inside Out Scenes Database (GUIOSDb)", parodying the name of a project by the Unterganger community to catalogue all of Downfall. As five of its scenes match up with four mini-series based on those scenes as seen on CreativityTheEmotion's YouTube channel, they therefore can be taken as a definitive resource of the structure of Inside Out.

In addition to tracking scenes, The Grand Unified Inside Out Scenes Database also tracks the time of day, as experienced by Riley Andersen's emotions via her sleep schedule, and the number of Islands of Personality that Riley has.

  • The screenplay of Inside Out has 299 mentions of "INT." and 81 mentions of "EXT.", for a total of 380 scenes. The disparity between this and the 59 scenes (excluding the credits scene) as listed here is because, according to the formal definition of a scene in film, a new scene starts whenever a new location is entered or a time skip is involved, and Riley's Headquarters and wherever she is in the outside world are considered to be two different locations, creating many scenes that last a few seconds and consist of a single shot.
    • Those counting "INT." in the screenplay must beware of a line in Anger plans (part 1): "Anyway, it was better, that’s my point.", which inflates the number of occurrences to 300.
