Interference of bulk and surface scattering processes is analyzed for ultrathin systems with quantized motion in the direction perpendicular to the walls. The effective relaxation time for scattering by random bulk and surface inhomogeneities is calculated, when possible analytically, beyond the Matthiessen's rule. The applications to the size effect, weak localization, transport along the walls, and boundary slip are discussed.
