    • Dr. Raymond Stantz: Hey. Does this pole still work?
    • [slides down a fireman's pole]

    • Dr. Peter Venkman: Ray has gone bye-bye, Egon... what've you got left?
    • Dr. Egon Spengler: Sorry, Venkman, I'm terrified beyond the capacity for rational thought.

    • Dr. Raymond Stantz: Listen... you smell something?
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: I don't have to take this abuse from you, I've got hundreds of people dying to abuse me.
    • [surrounded by excited reporters during the montate sequence, which shows the Ghostbusters as a sudden popular culture craze]

    • Librarian Alice: My uncle thought he was Saint Jerome.
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: I'd call that a big yes. Uh, are you habitually using drugs? Stimulants? Alcohol?

    • Dr. Egon Spengler: Print is dead.
    • Janine Melnitz: Oh, that's very fascinating to me. I read a lot myself. Some people think I'm too intellectual but I think it's a fabulous way to spend your spare time. I also play raquetball. Do you have any hobbies?
    • Dr. Egon Spengler: I collect spores, molds, and fungus.
    • Dr. Egon Spengler: Oh good, you're here!
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: Yeah, what have you got?

    • Dr. Egon Spengler: That would have worked if you hadn't stopped me.
    • Dr. Raymond Stantz: Well, this is great. If the ionization-rate is constant for all ectoplasmic entities, we can really bust some heads... in a spiritual sense, of course.
    • Dr. Raymond Stantz: Hey, Dean Yeager! Are you moving us to a better office on campus?

    • Dr. Peter Venkman: This is preposterous. I demand an explanation.
    • Dean Yeager: Fine. This university will no longer continue any funding of any kind of your group's activities.
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: But the kids love us!
    • Dean Yeager: Doctor... Venkman. We believe that the purpose of science is to serve mankind. You, however, seem to regard science as some kind of dodge... or hustle. Your theories are the worst kind of popular tripe, your methods are sloppy, and your conclusions are highly questionable! You are a poor scientist, Dr. Venkman!
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: I see.
    • Dean Yeager: And you have no place in this department, or this university.
    • [Dana has described seeing the demon Zuul in her refrigerator]

    • Dr. Peter Venkman: What a crime.
    • [Persuading the mayor to let them stop a supernatural upheaval]
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: If I'm wrong, nothing happens! We go to jail - peacefully, quietly. We'll enjoy it! But if I'm *right*, and we *can* stop this thing... Lenny, you will have saved the lives of millions of registered voters.
    • Janine Melnitz: Do you believe in UFOs, astral projections, mental telepathy, ESP, clairvoyance, spirit photography, telekinetic movement, full trance mediums, the Loch Ness monster and the theory of Atlantis?
    • Winston Zeddemore: Ah, if there's a steady paycheck in it, I'll believe anything you say.
    • [possessed by Zuul]
    • Dana Barrett: Do you want this body?
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: Is this a trick question?

    • Dr Ray Stantz: Judgement day.
    • Winston Zeddemore: Judgement day.
    • Dr Ray Stantz: Every ancient religion has its own myth about the end of the world.

    • [Pause]
    • Dr Ray Stantz: How 'bout a little music?
    • Winston Zeddemore: Yeah.

    • Winston Zeddemore: What are you so involved with over there?
    • Dr Ray Stantz: These are the blueprints for structural ironwork of Dana Barret's apartment building, and they are very, very strange.
    • Winston Zeddemore: Hey Ray. Do you remember something in the bible about the last days when the dead would rise from the grave?
    • Dr Ray Stantz: I remember Revelations 6:12...?And I looked, and he opened the sixth seal, and behold, there was a great earthquake. And the sun became as black as sack cloth, and the moon became as blood."
    • Winston Zeddemore: "And the seas boiled and the skies fell."

    • [to Janine]
    • Louis: Yes, have some.
    • [to the library ghost, as Spengler analyzes her with the P.K.E. Meter and Raymond takes photos]

    • [Egon is running tests on Louis, who has been possessed by Vinz Clortho and is now the Keymaster]
    • Dr. Egon Spengler: Vinz, you said before you were waiting for a sign. What sign are you waiting for?
    • Louis: Gozer the Traveler. He will come in one of the pre-chosen forms. During the rectification of the Vuldrini, the traveler came as a large and moving Torg! Then, during the third reconciliation of the last of the McKetrick supplicants, they chose a new form for him: that of a giant Slor! Many Shuvs and Zuuls knew what it was to be roasted in the depths of the Slor that day, I can tell you!
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: NOBODY steps on a church in my town.
    • Dr. Raymond Stantz: Gozer the Gozerian... good evening. As a duly designated representative of the City, County and State of New York, I order you to cease any and all supernatural activity and return forthwith to your place of origin or to the nearest convenient parallel dimension.

    • Dr. Raymond Stantz: Our courteous and efficient staff is on call 24 hours a day to serve all your supernatural elimination needs.
    • Dr. Egon SpenglerDr. Peter VenkmanDr. Raymond Stantz: We're ready to believe you.
    • Dr. Raymond Stantz: Personally, I liked the university. They gave us money and facilities, we didn't have to produce anything! You've never been out of college! You don't know what it's like out there! I've WORKED in the private sector. They expect *results*.
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: Janine, someone with your qualifications would have no trouble finding a top-flight job in either the food service or housekeeping industries.
    • [phone rings]
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: You gonna answer that?
    • Janine Melnitz: I've quit better jobs than this.

    • Dr. Raymond Stantz: Are you okay?
    • Louis: Okay.
    • Louis: Who are you guys?

    • [pauses]

    • [Louis and the Tall Woman begin disco dancing. Suddenly the doorbell rings]
    • Louis: Oh, don't move, I just gotta get the door.
    • [opens door, greeting guests]
    • Louis: Ted! Annette! I'm glad you could come, how you doin', give me your coats. Everybody, this is Ted and Annette Fleming! Ted has a small carpet cleaning business in receivership; Annette's drawing a salary from a deferred bonus from two years ago! They got fifteen thousand left on the house at eight percent.
    • [throws the guests' coats in the closet, oblivious that they hit the demon Vinz Clortho hiding there]
    • Louis: So they're okay! So, does anybody wanna play Parcheesi?
    • [opening cabinet]
    • Louis: Gee, I think all I got is acetylsalicylic acid, generic. See, I can get six hundred tablets of that for the same price as three hundred of a name brand. That makes good financial sense, good advice...

    • Louis: Okay, who brought the dog?

    • Winston Zeddemore: Myth? Ray, has it ever occurred to you that maybe the reason we've been so busy lately is because the dead HAVE been rising from the grave?
    • [long pause]
    • [Turns on radio]
    • Dr. Raymond Stantz: How 'bout a little music?
    • [Dana is possessed]
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: So, what are we doing today, Zuul?
    • Dana Barrett: We must prepare for the coming of Gozer.
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: Gozer huh?
    • Dana Barrett: The Destructor.
    • [long pause]
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: Are we still going out?
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: I'll take Miss Barrett back to her apartment and check her out.
    • [Dana Barrett looks up confused]
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: I'll go check out Miss Barrett's apartment. OK?
    • Dr. Egon Spengler: I have a radical idea. The door swings both ways, we could reverse the particle flow through the gate.
    • [all get up to get ready]
    • Winston Zeddemore: This job is definitely not worth $11,500 a year.
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: How?
    • [hesitates]
    • Dr. Egon Spengler: We'll cross the streams.
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: 'Scuse me Egon? You said crossing the streams was bad!
    • Dr. Raymond Stantz: Cross the streams...
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: You're gonna endanger us, you're gonna endanger our client - the nice lady, who paid us in advance, before she became a dog...
    • Dr. Egon Spengler: Not necessarily. There's definitely a VERY SLIM chance we'll survive.
    • [pause while they consider this]
    • [slaps Ray]
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: I love this plan! I'm excited to be a part of it! LET'S DO IT!
    • [last lines]
    • Winston Zeddemore: I love this town!
    • Louis: Boy, the superintendent's gonna be pissed!
    • [in front of the library ghost, their first ghost sighting]
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: So... what do we do?
    • [Egon and Ray stare at each other in silence. Peter grabs Ray's ear]
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: Would you come over here, please? That's it, c'mere Francine. What do we do?
    • [Egon pulls out a calculator and starts punching in numbers. Peter slaps the machine out of Egon's hand]
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: STOP THAT!
    • [clearing away tables in the dining room to make room for the ghost trap]
    • Dr. Raymond Stantz: I've gotta get this in the clear...!
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: Wait, wait, wait! I've always wanted to do this...
    • [He yanks a tablecloth off of a table, overturning and shattering everything except the centerpiece in the middle]
    • [triumphantly]
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: And the flowers are still standing!
    • [alternate wording from cable TV version]
    • Dr. Raymond Stantz: Your honor, our system was working just fine until the power grid was turned off by wally wick here.
    • Walter Peck: They caused an explosion!
    • [to Venkman]
    • Mayor: Is this true?
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: It's true, your honor. The man is some kind of rodent, I don't know which.
    • Dean Yeager: Your theories are the worst kind of popular tripe, your methods are sloppy, and your conclusions are highly questionable. You are a poor scientist, Dr. Venkman!
    • [while trying to catch the Slimer, the Ghostbusters cause a lot of damage to the hotel with their energy streams]
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: Whoa, whoa, whoa! Nice shootin', Tex!
    • [Dana has been possessed by the demon Zuul]
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: I think we can get her a guest shot on "Wild Kingdom." I just whacked her up with about 300 cc's of Thorazaine... she's gonna take a little nap now.
    • Walter Peck: Shut these off. Shut these all off!
    • [Ray and Peter have been fired]
    • Dr. Raymond Stantz: This is a major disgrace. Forget MIT or Stanford now. They wouldn't touch us with a 10-meter cattle prod.
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: You're always so concerned about your reputation. Einstein did his best stuff when he was working as a patent clerk!
    • Dr. Raymond Stantz: Do you know how much a patent clerk earns?
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: No!
    • [Venkman arrives at 55 Central Park West, a few minutes after Louis was chased out by the demon Vinz Clortho]
    • [to a policeman]
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: What happened?
    • Policeman at Apartment: Some moron brought a cougar to a party and it went berserk.
    • [as Dana puts strings on her cello, Ray is being interviewed by Joe Frankin on television]
    • Joe Franklin: As they say in T.V., I'm sure there's one big question on everybody's mind, and I imagine you are the man to answer that. How is Elvis, and have you seen him lately?
    • [looking at the temporary sign on Ghostbusters HQ while a worker is hanging it up]
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: You don't think it's too subtle, Marty, you don't think people are going to drive down and not see the sign?
    • [hears a siren approaching and an old, gray station wagon pulls up in the driveway]
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: Whoa! Whoa! You can't park right here!
    • [looks and sees Stantz in the driver's seat]
    • [gets out]
    • Dr. Raymond Stantz: Everybody can relax, I found the car. Needs some suspension work and shocks. Brakes, brake pads, lining, steering box, transmission, rear-end.
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: How much?
    • Dr. Raymond Stantz: Only $4,800.
    • [Venkman looks shocked]
    • Dr. Raymond Stantz: Also new rings, mufflers, a little wiring.
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: Janine, any calls?
    • [pause]
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: Janine, sorry about the bug-eyes thing. I'll be in my office.
    • Janine Melnitz: No.
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: Any messages?
    • Janine Melnitz: No.
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: Any customers?
    • Janine Melnitz: No, Dr. Venkman.
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: It's a good job, huh?
    • [she smiles]
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: Type something, will you? We're paying for this stuff! And don't stare at me, you got the bug-eyes.
    • Archbishop: Lenny, offically the church won't take any postion with the religious implications of these phenomenons. Personally Lenny, I think it's a sign from God, but don't quote me on that.
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: I think that's a smart move, Mike.
    • Dr. Egon Spengler: I have a radical idea. The door swings both ways, we could reverse the polarity flow through the gate.
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: How?
    • [hesitates]
    • Dr. Egon Spengler: We'll cross the streams.
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: 'Scuse me Egon? You said crossing the streams was bad!

    • [slaps Ray]
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: I love this plan! I'm excited it could work! LET'S DO IT!
    • Dr. Raymond Stantz: Hey... Where these stairs go?
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: They go up!
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: See ya on the other side, Ray.
    • Dr. Raymond Stantz: Nice working with you, Dr. Venkman.
    • Dr. Raymond Stantz: It's a girl.
    • Dr. Egon Spengler: It's Gozer.
    • Winston Zeddemore: I thought Gozer was a man.
    • Dr. Egon Spengler: It's whatever it wants to be.
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: Well, whatever it is, it's gotta get by us.
    • Dr. Raymond Stantz: Right!
    • [pause]
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: Go get her, Ray!
    • [steps in front of Peck]
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: My friend, don't be a jerk!
    • Walter Peck: If he does that again, you can shoot him.
    • Police Captain: You do your job, pencil neck, don't tell me how to do mine!
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: Thank you, Officer.
    • Walter Peck: SHUT IT OFF!
    • [possessed by Vinz Clortho]
    • Louis: I am The Keymaster!
    • [possessed by Zuul]
    • Dana Barrett: I am The Gatekeeper!
    • [training Winston]
    • Dr. Raymond Stantz: This is where we put all the vapors and entities and slimers that we trap. Quite simple really. Load a trap here, open, unlock the system. Insert the trap, release, close, lock the system. Set your entry grid, neutralize your field and... the light is green, the trap is clean! The ghost is incarcerated here in our custom-made storage facility.
    • [about the storage facility]
    • Dr. Egon Spengler: I'm worried, Ray. It's getting crowded in there, and all my recent data points to something big on the horizon.
    • Winston Zeddemore: What do you mean "big"?
    • Dr. Egon Spengler: Well...
    • [Egon takes a Twinkie]
    • Dr. Egon Spengler: ...let's say this Twinkie represents the normal amount of psychokinetic energy in the New York area. According to this morning's sample, it would be a twinkie... 35 feet long and weighing approximately 600 pounds.
    • [Ray coughs, in disbelief]
    • Winston Zeddemore: That's a big Twinkie.
    • Dr. Raymond Stantz: We could on the verge of a fourfold cross-reap. A P.K.E. surge of incredible, even dangerous proportions!
    • [to librarian Alice]
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: Are you currently menstruating?
    • Library Administrator: What has that got to do with anything?
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: Back off man, I'm a scientist.
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: All right, I'm gonna turn over the next card. Concentrate... I want you to tell me what you think it is.
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: It "is" a star,. very good.
    • [to the male student, and holding up another card]
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: Concentrate. Tell me what this is.
    • Male Student: Circle.
    • [Turns over the card]
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: Ooohhh, Close. But most definately wrong.
    • [Zaps the male student again]
    • [to the female student]
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: Clear your head.
    • [Holds up another card]
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: what is it?
    • Female Student: A figure 8.
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: That's 5 for 5, you can't see these can you?
    • [Holds up the card]
    • Female Student: No.
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: You're not cheating me, are you?
    • Female Student: No. I swear, they're just coming to me.
    • [to the male student]
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: Nervous?
    • [Really is nervous]
    • Male Student: Yes, I don't like this.
    • [Holds up another card]
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: We've only got 75 more to go, c'mon what this one.
    • [the card has three wavy lines]
    • Male Student: It's, a couple of wavy lines.
    • [Suddenly puts card down]
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: Sorry, this isn't your lucky day.
    • Male Student: Yeah, I...
    • [Peter's hand slowly reaches for the zapping trigger]
    • Male Student: Uh, square.
    • Male Student: I uh, uh, I uh, I uh.
    • [Zap]
    • [Annoyed]
    • Male Student: I'm getting a little tired of this.
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: You volunteered, didn't you? We're paying you, are we?
    • Male Student: Yeah, but I didn't know you we're gonna be giving me electric shocks. What are trying to prove here, anyway.
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: I'm studying the effect on negative reinforcement on ESP ability.
    • [Aggravated]
    • Male Student: Effect? I'll tell you the effect is, it's pissing me off!
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: Good guess, but wrong.
    • [Turns over the card and zaps the male student]
    • [to the female student]
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: Okay,
    • [Holds up another card]
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: what is this?
    • Female Student: Is it a star?
    • [telling Winston, who is new to the team on how to place ghosts in the storage facility]
    • Dr. Raymond Stantz: This is where we store all the vapors and entities and slimers that we trap. Very simple, really. A loaded trap here... open, unlock the system... insert the trap... release... close, lock the system. Set your entry grid... neutronize your field... and...
    • [Ray pulls a lever and the green light comes on]
    • Dr. Raymond Stantz: ...when the light is green, the trap is clean. The ghost is incarcerated here in our custom-made storage facility.
    • [after Gozer disappears]
    • Dr. Raymond Stantz: We've neutronized it, you know what that means? A complete particle reversal.
    • Winston Zeddemore: We have the tools, and we have the talent!
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: It's Miller time!
    • [the trio shake hands]
    • [Egon is running tests on Louis who has been possessed by Vince Clortho a.k.a. The Keymaster]
    • Walter Peck: Forget it, Venkman. You had your chance to cooperate, but you though it would be more fun to insult me. Well, now it's my turn, wiseass.
    • Dr. Egon Spengler: He wants to shut down the protection grid, Peter.
    • [to Peck]
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: You shut that thing down, and *we* are not going to be held responsible for whatever happens.
    • Walter Peck: Oh yes you will, I'll make sure you will.
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: No, we won't be.
    • [to the electrician]
    • Walter Peck: Shut it off.
    • [to the electrician]
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: Don't shut it off. I'm warning ya.
    • Con Edison Man: I, I never seen anything like this before. I'm not sure...
    • [interrupting]
    • Walter Peck: I'm not interested in your opinion, just shut it off.
    • [gets in electrician's way]
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: My friend, don't be a jerk.
    • [entering with Peck, Police Sergeant and Con Ed Man]
    • Janine Melnitz: Egon, I tried to stop them. They say they have a warrant.
    • [gets in Peter's way]
    • Police Sergeant: Step aside.
    • Walter Peck: If he does that again, you can shoot him.
    • Police Sergeant: You do *your* job, pencilneck. Don't tell me how to do mine.
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: Thank you, officer.
    • [aggravatingly shouting]
    • Walter Peck: Shut it off!
    • Dr. Egon Spengler: Excuse me, this is private property.
    • Walter Peck: Shut this off; shut these all off.
    • Dr. Egon Spengler: I'm warning you. Turning off these machines would be extremely hazardous.
    • Walter Peck: No, I'll tell *you* what's hazardous. You're facing Federal prosecution for about a half dozen environmental violations. Now either you shut off these machines, or we'll shut them off for you.
    • Dr. Egon Spengler: Try to understand, this a high voltage laser containment system. Simply turning it off would be like dropping a bomb on the city.
    • Walter Peck: Don't patronize me, I'm not grotesquely stupid, like the people you've bilked!
    • [arriving, to the officer]
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: At ease officer. I'm Peter Venkman. I'm a partner in this facility and I'm going to cooperate in any way that I can.
    • Dr. Raymond Stantz: Personally, I liked working for the university! They gave us money and facilities. We didn't have to produce anything. You've never been out of college. You don't know what it's like out there! I've worked in the private sector... they expect results!
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: oh, wait, wait, i've always wanted to do this! and...
    • [he yanks the tablecloth off of one of the tables, upsetting and breaking everything except a vase of flowers on the center of t]
    • [shouting while offscreen]
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: the flowers are still standing!
    • Winston Zeddemore: This job is definitely *not* worth eleven-five a year!
    • Dr. Raymond Stantz: Oh, I got to get some sleep, I'm dying.
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: You don't look good.
    • Dr. Raymond Stantz: I don't?
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: Well, you've looked better. You didn't used to look like this.
    • [in jail, the Ghostbusters study the blueprints of Dana's apartment building]
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: She's not my girlfriend. I find her interesting because she's a client and sleeps above her covers. *Four feet* above her covers. She barks, she drools, she claws...
    • Dr. Egon Spengler: It's not the girl, Peter, it's the building. Something terrible is about to enter our world, and this building is obviously the door. The architect's name was Ivo Shandor. I found it in Tobin's Spirit Guide. He was also a doctor. Performed a lot of unnecessary surgery. And then, in 1920, he started a secret society...
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: Let me guess: Gozer worshipers.
    • Dr. Egon Spengler: Right.
    • [to Ray]
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: No studying.
    • Dr. Egon Spengler: After the First World War, Shandor decided that society was too sick to survive.
    • [He pauses, glancing uneasily at the rest of the holding cell crowd]
    • Dr. Egon Spengler: And he wasn't alone. He had close to a thousand followers when he died. They conducted rituals up on the roof, bizarre rituals intended to bring about the end of the world. And now it looks like it may actually happen.
    • [Silence]
    • [spins around to face another of the inmates, and starts singing]
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: So be good, for goodness sake! Whoa... somebody's coming!
    • Dr. Egon Spengler: The structure of this roof cap is exactly like the kind of telemetry tracker that NASA uses to identify dead pulsars in deep space.
    • Dr. Raymond Stantz: Cold-riveted girders with cores of pure selenium.
    • [to a cellmate looking over his shoulder blueprints]
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: Everybody getting this so far?
    • [to Ray]
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: So what? I guess they just don't make them like they used to.
    • [impatiently slaps Peter on the forehead]
    • Dr. Raymond Stantz: No! Nobody *ever* made them like this! I mean, the architect was either a certified genius, or an authentic wacko!
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: Ray... for a moment, pretend that I don't know anything about metallurgy, engineering or physics, and just tell me what the hell is going on.
    • Dr. Raymond Stantz: You never studied. The whole building is a huge, superconductive antenna that was designed and built expressly for the purpose of pulling in and concentrating spiritual turbulence. Your girlfriend lives in the corner penthouse of spook central.
    • [cornered by the the demon Vinz Clortho]
    • Louis: Nice doggy. Cute little pooch. Maybe I've got a Milk-Bone.
    • [after Ray thinks of the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man and it appears, stomping through New York City]
    • Dr Ray Stantz: I tried to think of the most harmless thing. Something I loved from my childhood. Something that could never, ever possibly destroy us. Mr. Stay Puft.
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: Nice thinking, Ray.
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: You're the best one on your row.
    • [upon seeing the Slimer]
    • [very uncompfortably]
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: Come in. Ray
    • [on the walkie talkie]
    • Dr. Raymond Stantz: Venkman! I saw it! I saw it!
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: It's right here, Ray. It's looking at me.
    • Dr. Raymond Stantz: He's an ugly little spud isn't he?
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: I think he can hear you, Ray.
    • Dr. Raymond Stantz: Don't move! It won't hurt you.
    • [the Slimer charges at Venkman]
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: Aaaaaahhh! Aaaaaahhh!
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: Janine, any messages?
    • Janine Melnitz: No.
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: Any calls?
    • Janine Melnitz: No.
    • [Desperate]
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: Any customers?
    • Janine Melnitz: No, Dr. Venkman.
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: Good job, isn't it? Type something will ya, we're paying for this stuff,
    • [Walks off]
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: and don't stare at me you got the *bug eyes*. Janine, sorry about the bug eyes thing I'll be in my office.
    • [tickling piano keys]
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: They hate this. I like to torture them.
    • [the Ghostbusters are tiring as they climb twenty-two flights of stairs in their proton packs]
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: Where are we?
    • [gasps]
    • Dr. Raymond Stantz: Looks like we're in the teens... somewhere.
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: Well, when we get to twenty, tell me... I'm gonna throw up.
    • [gets off the elevator and Louis comes out of his apartment]
    • Louis: No sweat, I'll take a rain check on that. I always have plenty of low sodium mineral water and other nutritious foods in the house. But you already know that.
    • [dryly]
    • Dana Barrett: Yeah, I know that...
    • Louis: Listen, that reminds me, I'm having a big party for all my clients, my fourth anniversary as an accountant, you know, and even though you do your own tax return, which you shouldn't do, I'd like you to stop by, being that you're my neighbor and all.
    • [interrupting]
    • Dana Barrett: Well thank you, Louis, I'll really try to stop by.
    • Louis: Listen, that reminds me, you shouldn't leave your TV on so loud when you go out. The creep down the hall phoned the manager.
    • Dana Barrett: That's strange, I didn't realize I'd left it on.
    • [unlocks her door]
    • [droning on]
    • Louis: Well yeah, you know what I did? I climbed on the ledge and tried to disconnect the cable, but I couldn't get in, so you know what I did? I turned my TV up real loud too so everyone would think all our TVs had something wrong with them.
    • [abruptly closing her door]
    • Dana Barrett: Bye, Louis.
    • [alone again]
    • Louis: Okay, so I'll see you later, huh? I'll give you a call! I'm going to go have a shower.
    • Louis: Oh, Dana, it's you!
    • [tries to go back into his apartment but he's locked himself out]
    • Dana Barrett: Oh hi. Yes Louis, it's me.
    • Louis: I thought it was the drugstore.
    • Dana Barrett: Oh, are you sick?
    • Louis: Oh! No, no, I'm fine, I feel great! Just ordered some more vitamins and stuff. I was just exercising. I taped a 20-minute workout and played it back at high speed on my machine so it only took ten minutes. I got a great workout.
    • Dana Barrett: Good...
    • Louis: You wanna come in for a mineral water or something?
    • Dana Barrett: Oh, I'd really like to, Louis, but I have to go rehearsal now. Excuse me.
    • [the Victorian Lady Ghost is floating in mid-air, reading a book]
    • [excitedly]
    • Dr. Raymond Stantz: A full torso apparition, and it's real.
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: Egon, what do you think?
    • [looking up and blinding Peter with his headlamp]
    • Dr. Egon Spengler: She's telling the truth. At least, she thinks she is.
    • Dana Barrett: Well, of course I'm telling the truth! Who would make up a story like that?
    • [becoming suave]
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: Some are people who just want attention. Others, just nutballs who come in off the street.
    • Dr. Raymond Stantz: You know what it could be? Past-life experience intruding on present time.
    • Dr. Egon Spengler: Could be race memory stored in the collective unconscious. I wouldn't rule out clairvoyance or telepathic contact either.
    • Dana Barrett: I'm sorry, I don't believe in any of those things.
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: Well, that's all right. I don't either.
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: Let me tell you something about myself. I come home from work to my place and all I have is my work. There's nothing else in my life!
    • Dana Barrett: Dr. Venkman...
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: I meet you, and I say, my God, there's someone with the same problem I have.
    • Dana Barrett: Yes. We both have the same problem. You!
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: I'm gonna go for broke. I am madly in love with you.
    • Dana Barrett: I don't believe this. Will you please leave?
    • [to an invisible audience]
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: And then she threw me out of her life. She thought I was a creep, she thought I was a geek, and she probably wasn't the first.
    • Dana Barrett: You are so odd.
    • [holding ghost trap like a rat by the tail]
    • Dr. Raymond Stantz: We got it.
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: ... and that's only gonna come to one thousand dollars, fortunately.
    • Hotel Manager: Five thousand dollars? I had no idea it'd be so much. I won't pay it.
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: Well, that's all right. We can just put it right back in there. Thank you.
    • Dr. Raymond Stantz: We certainly can, Dr. Venkman.
    • [Ray turns back toward the ballroom]
    • [stopping Ray]
    • Hotel Manager: No, no, NO! All right. Anything.
    • [handing the manager a check]
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: Thanks so much.
    • Dr. Raymond Stantz: Thank you. Hope we can help you again.
    • [as he, Peter and Egon leave the hotel, Ray calls out to the witnesses]
    • Dr. Raymond Stantz: Coming through! One class-five full-roaming vapor. Move 'em out.
    • Hotel Manager: What is it? Will there be any more of them?
