Dr. Peter Venkman: [as the Ghostbusters approach Gozer] Grab your stick!
[the Ghostbusters draw their handsets]
Dr. Raymond Stantz, Dr. Egon Spengler, Winston Zeddemore: HOLDIN'!
Dr. Peter Venkman: Heat 'em up!
[they arm their packs]
Dr. Raymond Stantz, Dr. Egon Spengler, Winston Zeddemore: SMOKIN'!
Dr. Peter Venkman: Make 'em hard!
[they rack their handsets]
Dr. Raymond Stantz, Dr. Egon Spengler, Winston Zeddemore: READY!
Dr. Peter Venkman: Let's show this prehistoric bitch how we do things downtown... THROW IT!

Dr. Peter Venkman: Nimble little minx, in't she?
Dr. Egon Spengler: We're gonna go full stream.
Dr. Raymond Stantz: Aim for the flattop!
[Ghostbusters shoot at Gozer, but she disappears]
Dr. Peter Venkman: [uncertainly] Wasn't so hard.

Winston Zeddemore: Hey, wait a minute. Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey! Hold it! Now, are we actually gonna go before a federal judge, and tell him that some moldy Babylonian god is going to drop in on Central Park West, and start tearing up the city?
Dr. Egon Spengler: Sumerian, not Babylonian.
Dr. Peter Venkman: Yeah. Big difference.
Winston Zeddemore: No offense, guys, but I've gotta get my own lawyer.

Dr. Peter Venkman: This city is headed for a disaster of biblical proportions.
Mayor: What do you mean, "biblical"?
Dr. Raymond Stantz: What he means is Old Testament, Mr. Mayor, real wrath of God type stuff.
Dr. Peter Venkman: Exactly.
Dr. Raymond Stantz: Fire and brimstone coming down from the skies! Rivers and seas boiling!
Dr. Egon Spengler: Forty years of darkness! Earthquakes, volcanoes...
Winston Zeddemore: The dead rising from the grave!
Dr. Peter Venkman: Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together... mass hysteria!
Mayor: All right, all right! I get the point!

Dr. Raymond Stantz: You know, it just occurred to me that we really haven't had a successful test of this equipment.
Dr. Egon Spengler: I blame myself.
Dr. Peter Venkman: So do I.
Dr. Raymond Stantz: Well, no sense in worrying about it now.
Dr. Peter Venkman: Why worry? Each one of us is carrying an unlicensed nuclear accelerator on his back.

Dr. Raymond Stantz: [astounded] Wow! Talk about telekinetic activity, look at this mess!
Dr. Egon Spengler: Ray, look at this.
Dr. Raymond Stantz: Ectoplasmic residue.
Dr. Egon Spengler: Venkman, get a sample of this.
Dr. Raymond Stantz: It's the real thing.
Dr. Peter Venkman: Someone blows their nose and you want to keep it?
Dr. Egon Spengler: I'd like to analyze it.
Dr. Peter Venkman: [gets the slime on his hand] Whoa, ah.
Dr. Egon Spengler: This way.
[Venkman tries to wipe the slime off of his hand]

Dr. Raymond Stantz: I think we'd better split up.
Dr. Egon Spengler: Good idea.
Dr. Peter Venkman: Yeah... we can do more damage that way.

[evaluating a site for their business]
Dr. Peter Venkman: What do you think, Egon?
Dr. Egon Spengler: I think this building should be condemned. There's serious metal fatigue in all the load-bearing members, the wiring is substandard, it's completely inadequate for our power needs, and the neighborhood is like a demilitarized zone.
Dr. Raymond Stantz: Hey. Does this pole still work?
[slides down a fireman's pole]
Dr. Raymond Stantz: Wow. This place is great. When can we move in? You gotta try this pole. I'm gonna get my stuff. Hey. We should stay here. Tonight. Sleep here. You know, to try it out.
[Venkman looks at Spengler. Spengler slowly shakes his head. Venkman turns to the real estate agent]
Dr. Peter Venkman: I think we'll take it.

Dr. Egon Spengler: Sorry, Venkman, I'm terrified beyond the capacity for rational thought.

Dr. Egon Spengler: I feel like the floor of a taxi cab.

Dr. Egon Spengler: There's something very important I forgot to tell you.
Dr. Peter Venkman: What?
Dr. Egon Spengler: Don't cross the streams.
Dr. Peter Venkman: Why?
Dr. Egon Spengler: It would be bad.
Dr. Peter Venkman: I'm fuzzy on the whole good/bad thing. What do you mean, "bad"?
Dr. Egon Spengler: Try to imagine all life as you know it stopping instantaneously and every molecule in your body exploding at the speed of light.
Dr. Raymond Stantz: Total protonic reversal.
Dr. Peter Venkman: Right. That's bad. Okay. All right. Important safety tip. Thanks, Egon.

[surveying a wrecked apartment building corridor having climbed over thirty flights of stairs with his proton pack]
Dr. Egon Spengler: [casually] Art Deco, very nice.

Janine Melnitz: You're very handy, I can tell. I bet you like to read a lot, too.
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: This is big, Peter, this is very big. There is definitely something here.
Dr. Peter Venkman: Egon, this reminds me of the time you tried to drill a hole through your head. Remember that?
Dr. Egon Spengler: That would have worked if you hadn't stopped me.

Dr. Egon Spengler: Venkman, shorten your stream! I don't want my face burned off!

Janine Melnitz: Do you want some coffee, Mr. Tulley?
Louis: [to Egon] Do I?
Dr. Egon Spengler: Yes, have some.
Louis: [to Janine] Yes, have some.

[Egon is running tests on Louis, who has been possessed by Gozer 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!

[In a TV commercial]
Dr. Raymond Stantz: Are you troubled by strange noises in the middle of the night?
Dr. Egon Spengler: Do you experience feelings of dread in your basement or attic?
Dr. Peter Venkman: Have you or your family ever seen a spook, spectre or ghost?
Dr. Raymond Stantz: If the answer is "yes," then don't wait another minute. Pick up the phone and call the professionals...
Dr. Raymond Stantz, Dr. Egon Spengler, Dr. Peter Venkman: Ghostbusters.
Dr. Raymond Stantz: Our courteous and efficient staff is on call 24 hours a day to serve all your supernatural elimination needs.
Dr. Raymond Stantz, Dr. Egon Spengler, Dr. Peter Venkman: We're ready to believe you.

Dr. Peter Venkman: All right, this chick is TOAST. Okay; sticks?
Dr. Raymond Stantz, Dr. Egon Spengler, Winston Zeddemore: HOLDIN'!
Dr. Peter Venkman: Heat 'em up!
Dr. Raymond Stantz, Dr. Egon Spengler, Winston Zeddemore: SMOKIN'!
Dr. Peter Venkman: MAKE 'EM HARD!
Dr. Raymond Stantz, Dr. Egon Spengler, Winston Zeddemore: READY!
Dr. Peter Venkman: Let's show this prehistoric bitch how we do things downtown.

Dr. Egon Spengler: I'm worried, Ray. It's getting crowded in there and all my data points to something big on the horizon.
Winston Zeddemore: What do you mean, big?
Dr. Egon Spengler: Well, let's say this Twinkie represents the normal amount of psychokinetic energy in the New York area. Based on this morning's sample, it would be a Twinkie... thirty-five feet long, weighing approximately six hundred pounds.

Dr. Peter Venkman: He slimed me.
Dr. Raymond Stantz: That's great. Actual physical contact. Can you move?
Dr. Egon Spengler: [over walkie-talkie] Ray, Ray, come in please.
Dr. Peter Venkman: I feel so funky.

Janine Melnitz: You are so kind to take care of that man. You know, you're a real humanitarian.
Dr. Egon Spengler: I don't think he's human.

Dr. Raymond Stantz: Are you okay?
Louis: Who are you guys?
Dr. Raymond Stantz: We're the Ghostbusters.
Louis: Who does your taxes?
Dr. Raymond Stantz: You know, Mr. Tully, you are a most fortunate individual.
Louis: I know!
Dr. Raymond Stantz: You have been a participant in the biggest interdimensional cross rip since the Tunguska blast of 1909!
Louis: Felt great.
Dr. Egon Spengler: We'd like to get a sample of your brain tissue.
Louis: Okay.

Dr. Raymond Stantz: 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.
Dr. Peter Venkman: She's not my girlfriend. I find her interesting because she's a client and because she 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*.

Walter Peck: Hold it! I want this man arrested! Captain, these men are in criminal violation of the Environmental Protection Act! And this explosion is a direct result of it!
Dr. Egon Spengler: YOUR MOTHER!

Dr. Peter Venkman: How's the grid holding up?
Dr. Egon Spengler: Not good.
Winston Zeddemore: Tell him about the Twinkie.
Dr. Peter Venkman: What about the Twinkie?

Dr. Egon Spengler: I have a radical idea. The door swings both ways, we could reverse the particle flow through the gate.
Dr. Peter Venkman: How?
Dr. Egon Spengler: [hesitates] 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]
Dr. Peter Venkman: [slaps Ray] I love this plan! I'm excited to be a part of it! LET'S DO IT!

Gozer: The Choice is made!
Dr. Peter Venkman: Whoa! Ho! Ho! Whoa-oa!
Gozer: The Traveller has come!
Dr. Peter Venkman: Nobody choosed anything!
[turns to Egon]
Dr. Peter Venkman: Did you choose anything?
Dr. Egon Spengler: No.
Dr. Peter Venkman: [to Winston] Did YOU?
Winston Zeddemore: My mind is totally blank.
Dr. Peter Venkman: I didn't choose anything...
[long pause, Peter, Egon and Winston all look at Ray]
Dr. Raymond Stantz: I couldn't help it. It just popped in there.
Dr. Peter Venkman: [angrily] What? WHAT "just popped in there?"
Dr. Raymond Stantz: I... I... I tried to think...
Dr. Egon Spengler: LOOK!
[they all look over one side of the roof]
Dr. Raymond Stantz: No! It CAN'T be!
Dr. Peter Venkman: What is it?
Dr. Raymond Stantz: It CAN'T be!
Dr. Peter Venkman: What did you DO, Ray?
Winston Zeddemore: Oh, shit!
[they all see a giant cubic white head topped with a sailor hat, Peter looks at Ray]
Dr. Raymond Stantz: [somberly] It's the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man.

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?
Dr. Egon Spengler: [hesitates] 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]
Dr. Peter Venkman: [slaps Ray] I love this plan! I'm excited it could work! LET'S DO IT!

[talking about Dana's building, while waiting in jail]
Dr. Egon Spengler: The architect's name was Evo 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 worshippers.
Dr. Egon Spengler: Right.
Dr. Peter Venkman: [to Ray] No studying.
Dr. Egon Spengler: After the First World War, Shandor decided that society was too sick to survive.
[He pauses, glancing nervously around at 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 might actually happen.
[pause. Peter 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. 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!

Dr. Egon Spengler: [about the storage facility] 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!

Janine Melnitz: [Coming in as Egon was running tests on Louis who is possessed by Vince Clorthow] Egon, I tried to stop them they say they have a warrant.
Dr. Egon Spengler: Excuse me, this is private property.
Walter Peck: [after observing the storage facility] 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!
Dr. Peter Venkman: [arriving, to the officer] 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.
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.
Dr. Peter Venkman: [to Walter Peck] You shut that thing down, and "we" are not gonna 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.
Walter Peck: [to the electrician] Shut it off.
Dr. Peter Venkman: [to the electrician] Don't shut it off. I'm warning ya.
Con Edison Man: I, I never seen anything like this before. I'm not sure...
Walter Peck: [Interrupting] I'm not interested in your opinion, just shut it off.
Dr. Peter Venkman: [Gets in electrician's way] My friend, don't be a jerk.
Police Sergeant: [Gets in Peter's way] 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.
Walter Peck: [aggravatingly shouting] Shut it off!

[at jail, the ghostbusters study the blueprints of the building where Dana lives]
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.
Dr. Peter Venkman: [to a cellmate looking over the blueprints] Everybody getting this so far? So what? I guess they just don't make them like they used to.
Dr. Raymond Stantz: [impatiently] No!
[Ray slaps Peter on the forehead]
Dr. Raymond Stantz: Nobody ever made them like this! 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 for the purpose of pulling in and concentrating spiritual turbulence. Your girlfriend lives in the corner penthouse of spook central.
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!
[pause]
Dr. Egon Spengler: The architect's name was lvo 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.
Dr. Peter Venkman: [to Ray] No studying...
Dr. Egon Spengler: After the First World War, Shandor decided that society was too sick to survive. 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!
[pause. Peter 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. Peter Venkman: Egon, what do you think?
Dr. Egon Spengler: [looking up and blinding Peter with his headlamp] 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?
Dr. Peter Venkman: [becoming suave] 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.

[the Ghostbusters exit the elevator. Dr. Egon Spengler charges his proton pack]
Dr. Raymond Stantz: Come on.
[Chambermaid enters Hallway/corridor from Hotel Room]
Dr. Raymond Stantz: [Ray and Egon shout and blast her cart with proton beams]
Dr. Peter Venkman: Whoa! Hold it!
Chambermaid: What the HELL are you doing?
Dr. Egon Spengler: Sorry.
Dr. Peter Venkman: Sorry.
Dr. Raymond Stantz: I'm Sorry.
Dr. Peter Venkman: We thought you were someone else. Successful test.
Dr. Raymond Stantz: I guess so. I think we'd better split up.
Dr. Egon Spengler: Good idea.
Dr. Peter Venkman: Yeah, we can do more damage that way.

Dr. Egon Spengler: I blame myself.


Ghostbusters II (1989)
Peter Venkman: Hi, Egon. How's school? I bet those science chicks really dig that large cranium of yours, huh?
Egon: I think they're more interested in my epididymis.

Egon: Vigo the Carpathian. Born 1505, died 1610.
Peter Venkman: 105 years old, he hung in there, didn't he?
Ray: He didn't die of old age, either. He was poisoned, stabbed, shot, hung, stretched, disembowled, drawn and quartered.
Peter Venkman: Ouch.
Winston: Guess he wasn't too popular at the end, huh?
Egon: No, not exactly a man of the people. Also known as Vigo the Cruel, Vigo the Torturer, Vigo the Despised, and Vigo the Unholy.
Peter Venkman: Wasn't he also Vigo the Butch?
Ray: And dig this, there was a prophecy. Just before his head died, his last words were "Death is but a door. Time is but a window. I'll be back."

Egon: Venkman, get a stool sample.
Peter Venkman: Business, or personal?

Louis Tully: Your Honor, ladies and gentleman of the audience, I don't think it's fair to call my clients frauds. Sure, the blackout was a big problem for everybody. I was trapped in an elevator for two hours and I had to make the whole time. But I don't blame them. Because one time, I turned into a dog and they helped me. Thank you.
[the courtroom is in bewildered silence]
Egon: Very good, Louis. Short, but pointless.

Egon: I'd like to run some gynecological tests on the mother.
Peter Venkman: Who wouldn't?

Ray: You mean you never even had a Slinky?
Egon: We had part of a Slinky. But I straightened it.

Ray: You think there's a connection between this Vigo character and the... slime?
Egon: Is the atomic weight of cobalt 58.9?

Egon: Vigo the Carpathian. Also known as Vigo the Cruel, Vigo the Torturer, Vigo the Despised, and Vigo the Unholy.
Peter Venkman: Wasn't he also Vigo the Butch?

Peter Venkman: Doh!
Ray: Re!
Egon: Egon!

Dana: How is he these days?
Egon: Peter? Well, he was borderline for a while... then he crossed the border.

Egon: Let's see what happens when we take away the puppy.

[looking at Oscar's nursery]
Egon: Cozy. My parents didn't believe in toys.

[Egon and Ray are showing Peter and Winston their breakthrough with a slime specimen]
Egon: Go ahead, Ray!
Ray: [shouting at the slime] You! You worthless piece of slime! You ignorant disgusting blob!
[slime twitches]
Egon: You're nothing but an unstable short-chained molecule!
Ray: You foul obnoxious muck!
[bubbles dangerously with every insult]
Egon: You have a weak electrochemical bond!
[starts to bubble over]
Ray: I have seen some disgusting crud in my time, but you take the cake!
Peter Venkman: This is what you do with your spare time?

Egon: [producing a toaster] Ordinary household toaster.
Peter Venkman: We'll take your word for that.

Ray: Two in the box.
Egon: Ready to go.
Peter Venkman: We be fast.
Ray, Egon, Peter Venkman: They be slow.

[piloting the Statue of Liberty]
Egon: We're running out of time, Ray, it's almost midnight. Can't you make her go any faster?
Ray: I'm afraid the vibrations will shake her to pieces. We should have padded her feet.
Egon: I don't think they make Nikes in her size, Ray.
Peter Venkman: Hey, she's tough. She's a harbor chick!

[Ray has stepped in front of the painting of Vigo, blocking the Ghostbusters' attack]
Egon: Ray... we'd like to shoot the monster. Could you move, please?
Peter Venkman: Ray...
Winston: Ray?
Egon, Peter Venkman, Winston: RAY!
[Ray turns around, he is Ray/Vigo]
Ray: [demonic voice] NO! I, Ray, am Vigo, shall rule the Earth! Begone, you pitiful half-men!
Peter Venkman: Now!
[they attack]

Egon: [after a ghost train runs through Winston] I think that was the old New York Central "City of Albany"! Derailed in 1920! Killed hundreds of people! Did you catch the number on the locomotive?
Winston: Sorry. I missed it.

Janosz: [on waking after being freed from his possession, singing] They will come from behind... Ah, ah... why am I drippings with goo?
Egon: You had a violent prolonged transformative psychic episode.

[the Ghostbusters have been committed to a mental hospital]
Ray: As I explained before, we think the spirit of a 17th century Moldavian tyrant is alive and well in a painting at the Manhattan Museum of Art.
Psychiatrist: Uh-huh, and are there any other paintings in the museum with bad spirits in them?
Egon: You're wasting valuable time. He's drawing strength from a psychomagnotheric slime flow that's been collecting under the city.
Psychiatrist: Yes, tell me about the slime.
Winston: It's very potent stuff. We made a toaster dance with it.
[motions to Peter]
Winston: And a bathtub tried to eat his friend's baby.
Psychiatrist: A bathtub?
Peter Venkman: [with his head buried in his arms in despair] Don't look at me. I think these people are completely nuts.

Egon: [talking about the mood slime after the yelling at it] We're running tests to see if we can get an equally strong positive response.
Peter Venkman: What kind of tests?
Ray: Well; we sing to it, talk to it, and say supportive nuturing things to it.
Peter Venkman: You're not sleeping with it are you Ray?
[Ray doesn't answer, but stares intently at Egon]
Peter Venkman: [noticing Egon, teasingly] You hound.
Winston: It's always the quiet ones.
Egon: [clears throat, and hastily changes the subject] How 'bout the kinetic test?

Peter Venkman: [to Egon] Who told you to stop cutting? Somebody tell you to stop cutting?
First Cop: What are you guys doing here?
Peter Venkman: [to First Cop] You tell him to stop cutting?
First Cop: Yes, I told him to stop cutting. What are you doing?
Peter Venkman: What's it look like we're doing here? Why don't you let us work? We let you work.
Ray: [to Peter] Hey, take it easy.
[to First Cop]
Ray: He's been working overtime. I'll tell you why we're here. We're here because some diaper bag downtown's being a jerk and making us work on a Friday night. Am I right, Peter?
Peter Venkman: Of course you're right, Raymond.
[to Egon]
Peter Venkman: Is he right, Ziggy?
Egon: [pause] Yo!

[viewing the River of Slime]
Egon: You know how much negative energy would be necessary to generate a flow this size?
Winston: New York - what a town, huh?

Judge Wexler: [two ghosts in electrics chairs are attacking the court room] The Scolari brothers!
Ray: Friends of yours?
Judge Wexler: I tried them for murder, gave 'em the chair! You've got to do something!
Egon: Why don't you just tell them you don't believe in ghosts?

Ray: So what do you think? Chinese?
Egon: [sighs] How 'bout Thai?
Ray: No, too spicy. Greek?
Egon: Uhh... Mexican?
Ray: Pizza.
Egon: Thin or thick?
Ray: Chicago.

Egon: [Looking at Pictures of Vigo that Peter took earlier] You're right, Ray. Multiplatform anomination.
Ray: [getting another picture] Yeah, well here is the next months' front cover of GQ, check out the aura on this sucker. Now there is definitely a living presence there.
Egon: We should get a deeper look.
Ray: I 'll run this one through the Spectrogram
[Puts a picture into the spectrogram, now talks about dinner]
Ray: So, what do you think, Chinese?
Egon: Uh, how about Thai?
Ray: Nah, too spicy. Greek?
Egon: Uh, Mexican?
Ray: Pizza?
Egon: Thin or thick?
Ray: Chicago.
Egon: [Takes out a picture of Vigo] What the hell is that?
[picks up his giant maginfying glass]
Ray: I know what it is.
[Unbeknownst to Ray and Egon, the door is suddenly locked]
Ray: I've seen this before.
Egon: Where?
Ray: Remember when you had me dangling like a worm on a hook 100 feet below 1st Avenue?
[Shows the slime on the picture]
Ray: That's the river of slime.

Ray: [after getting off of the phone with Peter] Spangler. A major slime related pshycho kenetic event.
Egon: What happened?
Ray: Something came out of Dana's bathtub, tried to grab her and the baby.
Egon: Are they alright?
Ray: Yeah, she got out of there and went over to Venkman's.
Egon: This is interesting Ray. Remember that Vigo character Peter mentioned? Look what came up
[Goes to his computer and types up Vigo's profile]
Ray: Nice ugly history. Do you think there's a connection to this Vigo character and the...
[Looks at the slime which is still bubbling]
Ray: slime?
Egon: Is the atomic weight of colbalt 58.9?

Egon: I think that was the New York Central City Albany! Derailed in 1920 and killed hundreds of people, did you catch the number on the locomotive?
Winston: Sorry, I missed it.
Egon: Something's trying to stop us, we must be close.

Peter Venkman: [as the Mayor walks in]
[Raising his voice over the rest of the 'Busters]
Peter Venkman: Lenny. Big man.
The Mayor: The Ghostbusters.
Winston: Mr. Mayor?
[Holds out his hand, wanting to shake his hand]
The Mayor: What is this? A slumber party?
Ray: Well, that's why we wanted to see you.
The Mayor: Listen, *I* don't want to hear anything about it. You got 2 minutes. Make it good.
Ray: [Getting started] Well, first of all Mr. Mayor, it's a great pleasure to see you again, and you'll be happy to know that 50% of us voted for you in the last election.
The Mayor: I appreciate that.
Peter Venkman: I'm sorry we have to meet under these circumstances.
Ray: Mr. Mayor, we're here tonight because a psychomagnatheric slimeflow of immense proprtions is building up beneath the city.
The Mayor: Psycho-what?
Egon: Psychomagnatheric.
Peter Venkman: Big word, big word.
Egon: Negative human emotions that are forming into a vicious ectoplasm with *explosive* supernormal potential.
The Mayor: Can somebody speak english here?
Winston: Uh yeah. Your honor, what we're trying to say is all of the bad feelings. You know hate, anger and the vibes of the city are turning into this *sludge*. I didn't believe in it either. But, we just went for a swim in it and end up almost killing each other.
Hardemeyer: [to the Mayor]
[Aggrivated]
Hardemeyer: This is insane! Do we *really* have to listen to this?
Peter Venkman: [to Hardemeyer] Can't you stop your lips from flapping for 2 little minutes?
[to the Mayor]
Peter Venkman: Lenny, have you been out on the street lately, do you know weird it is out there? We've taken our own headcount, there seems to be 3 *million* completely miserable assholes living in the Tri-State area.
Hardemeyer: [In disbelief] Please?
Peter Venkman: I beg your prdon, 3 million and *one*.
Hardemeyer: Hey.
Ray: And what *fuggy brain* here doesn't realize, that if we don't do something fast this whole place is gonna blow like a frog on a hot plate.
Hardemeyer: [In disbelief] Yeah right.
The Mayor: What do you want me to do, go on television and tell 3 million people they have to be *nice* to each other?
[Begins to walk off]
The Mayor: Being miserable and treating other people like dirt is every New Yorker's god-given right. Your 2 minutes are up, good night gentlemen.

Judge Wexler: [At the Ghostbusters' trial] Before we begin this trial, I want to make one thing very clear: The law does not recognize the existence of ghosts, and I don't believe in them either. So I don't wanna hear a lot of malarkey about goblins, spooks, and demons. We're gonna stick to the facts in this case. Leave the ghost stories to the kiddies, understood?
Winston: Wow. Sounds like a pretty open-minded guy, huh?
Egon: Yeah, they call him "The Hammer."
Ray: What can we do? It's all in the hands of our lawyer now.
Louis Tully: I think you guys are making a big mistake. I do mostly tax law and some probate stuff occasionally. I got my law degree at night school.
Ray: Well, that's fine, Louis. We got arrested at night.

Judge Wexler: Peter Venkman, Raymond Stantz, Egon Spengler,
[yells]
Judge Wexler: Stand up! Get up!
[the Ghostbusters stand up]
Judge Wexler: You too, Mr. Tully.
[Louis stands up]
Judge Wexler: [furious] I find guilty on all charges. I order to pay fines in the amount of $25,000 each...
[the mood slime burbles; Ray notices it]
Judge Wexler: ... and I sentence you to 18 months in the City Correctional Facility at Riker's Island.
Ray: Egie, she's twiching.
Judge Wexler: [yells] I'M NOT FINISHED!
[slime continues to boil]
Judge Wexler: On a more presonal note, let me just go on record as saying that there's no place for fakes, charlatans...
Egon: Uh, your honor?
Judge Wexler: [cuts Egon off] Shut up! Or tricksters like you in desent society!
Peter Venkman: Your honor, this is important.
Judge Wexler: You play on the gullibility of innocent people!
Ray: Yes, sir...
Judge Wexler: Be quiet!
Ray: But...
[poits to the bubbling mood slime as it spills over]
Judge Wexler: [yelling] If my hands weren't tied by the alterable fetters of the law, then I would invoke the tradition of our illustrious forbears, reach back to a purer, sterner justice
[screaming at the top of his lungs]
Judge Wexler: and have you BURNED AT THE STAKE!
[the ghosts of the Scoleri brothers bursts from the slime; the jury members, many vistors and the prosecutor are all frightened]
Ray: [amazed] Wow!
Judge Wexler: [shocked and frightened] Oh, my God! The Scoleri Brothers!
[Wexler leaps from his bench as the ghosts attempt to attack him. He then crawls to Louis and the now-prosecuted Ghostbusters]
Judge Wexler: [yells] The Scoleri Brothers!
Ray: Friends of yours?
Judge Wexler: I've tried them for murder! Gave them the chair!

Peter Venkman: [the Ghostbusters enters the museum's restoration room] All right, suck in the guts, guys. We're the Ghostbusters.
[they breathe in]
Janosz: [approaches the four; claps] No! No, please go! You...
Ray: Who's this wiggler?
Ray: He's yours, Ray. Sic him.
Peter Venkman: [to Peter] I have discuss things with you. Now I...
Ray: Hi, how are you? Ray Stantz from the Ghostbusters. Nice to see you. Beautiful lab you have here.
Janosz: Can I tell what I told your friend?
Ray: We're just doing a routine spook check.
Janosz: Eh, Dr. Venkman, Dana is not here.
Peter Venkman: Yeah, we know that, Johnny.
Janosz: So why are you came?
Peter Venkman: Well, we got a report there was a major creep in the area. We checked our list and you were right there at the top. Johnny, where the hell are you from anyway?
Janosz: The Upper West Side.
Egon: The whole room's extremely hot, Peter.
Janosz: Hot?
Winston: [notices the painting of Vigo] Ooh, that's one ugly dude.
Peter Venkman: Oh, that's Vigo. Mr. Vigo?
Janosz: Uh...
Peter Venkman: [starts to take pictures of Vigo] Vigs, would you look this way, please?
Janosz: Please. No, don't. No, no!
Peter Venkman: Come on, show me something.
Janosz: No! No photographs, please! Slides are available in the Gift Shop, eh?
[Winston pulls Janosz out of the way; Janosz yells]
Peter Venkman: Yeah, thanks. Thank you, Winston.


Ghostbusters (2009) (VG)
Dr. Egon Spengler: All my data indicated the ghost world is beginning to push through multiple cross-portals from their dimension into ours.
Dr. Peter Venkman: Well, more overtime.

Dr. Egon Spengler: [after The Stay Puft Marshmallow Man falls off the building and explodes into goo that falls onto the street] Ray! Peter! We're in position! The trap is set! We're prepared to capture Stay Puft... Where is he?
Dr. Peter Venkman: He's that white puddle you're driving through.

Dr. Egon Spengler: New people die everyday.

Dr. Raymond Stantz: We eat gods for breakfast?
Dr. Egon Spengler: Too much you think?

Ivo Shandor: I am a God!
Dr. Egon Spengler: We eat Gods for breakfast!

Dr. Egon Spengler: Hmmm, these readings are off the charts. Now I'll have to go make new charts...

Dr. Raymond Stantz: [excitedly] How was it? Was it cool? How did it look like? Did you get any samples? Did it have multiple eyes?
Dr. Egon Spengler: Shut up.

Janine Melnitz: Our boss called and he...
Dr. Egon Spengler: [Interrupting] Not our boss, just Peck, please.
Janine Melnitz: Peck called and he said if you fire off another unauthorized stream, he's gonna shut you down.

Dr. Egon Spengler: Ray, follow me; the others are floating back upstairs. Venkman; pull our friend Slimer into a trap as fast as you can. There's a massive bulge in these spikes indicating this isn't just some routine clearing job.
Dr. Peter Venkman: He gets so bossy when he hasn't had his nap.

[the Ghostbusters' commercial is on TV]
Dr. Raymond Stantz: Are you troubled by strange noises in the night?
Dr. Egon Spengler: Do you experience feelings of dread in your basement or attic?
Dr. Peter Venkman: Have you or your family actually seen a spook, specter or ghost?
Dr. Raymond Stantz: If the answer is yes, then don't wait another minute.
Dr. Peter Venkman: Just pick up the phone and call the professionals!
Ghostbusters: Call the Ghostbusters! We're ready to believe you!
Dr. Peter Venkman: Franchises available soon! Call for details.

Dr. Egon Spengler: [over radio] I wanted to test these first, but since we're waiving that safety step today anyway, you should be aware that I modified the Neutrona Wand which normally releases the particle stream.
Winston Zeddemore: Wow! It's like Christmas came early!
Dr. Raymond Stantz: [over radio] Earlier than what? They started Christmas before Halloween this year! Santa came to my house dressed as Dracula!

[Egon and Ray have given the Rookie an upgraded Proton Pack]
Dr. Peter Venkman: Hey, how come this mump gets all the new stuff?
Dr. Egon Spengler: He's our new Experimental Equipment Technician.
Dr. Peter Venkman: He gets a cool title, too?
Dr. Raymond Stantz: It means he gets to carry around a bunch of untested, extremely dangerous hardware that if not handled correctly could blow him somewhere into New Jersey.

Ivo Shandor: [Final confrontation closing sequence] I am a god!
Dr. Egon Spengler: We eat gods for breakfast.
Dr. Raymond Stantz: [after Shandor's architect form has been destroyed] We eat gods for breakfast?
Dr. Egon Spengler: Too much you think?
Dr. Raymond Stantz: No, I liked it.

Dr. Egon Spengler: [while making adjustments to Ray's Proton Pack] This could be dangerous.
Dr. Raymond Stantz: Great. Danger is our life.
Dr. Egon Spengler: We'll start at fifty-percent capacity. That should keep any burning or tissue damage to a minimum.
Dr. Peter Venkman: Hey. If you're going to burn any tissue, do it to the new kid. You can't use Ray. Our mortgage is in his name.

Dr. Egon Spengler: [after defeating several flying stone gargoyles] Interesting. Ghosts and gargoyles.
Dr. Raymond Stantz: Hey! That was a game: 'Ghosts and Gargoyles', a game we played when I was in the Seminary.
Dr. Peter Venkman: Ghosts and Gargoyles. What dink game didn't you play? Do you have your eight-sided dice with you?

[the Ghostbusters arrive at the Sedgewick Hotel, which seems to be empty]
Winston Zeddemore: Whoa. If this place were any more dead, we'd need a coroner.
Dr. Raymond Stantz: Egon used to be a licensed coroner.
Winston Zeddemore: No kidding?
Dr. Egon Spengler: It's just a hobby now.


"The Real Ghostbusters: Mr. Sandman, Dream Me a Dream (#1.7)" (1986)
Winston Zeddemore (I): [while chasing the Sandman, Peter gets hit with sleep dust in a nearby room] Was that a thud?
Egon Spengler: That was a thud.

Peter Venkman: So nice of you to finally join us for breakfast, Dr. Venkman.
[Peter shuffles over to the table and mumbles something]
Winston Zeddemore (I): What'd he say?
Egon Spengler: I think he said coffee, possibly cookie.

Albert Einstein: [in Egon's dream] E = MC... E = MC...
Egon Spengler: [wakes up] E=MC2, E=MC2, I've got it! E=MC...
[sees everybody looking at him]
Egon Spengler: never mind... it would take too long to explain.

[Egon wakes up from his dream]
Egon Spengler: That's it! E=MC2. E=...
[the street crowd watches Egon]
Egon Spengler: Never mind, just never mind.

Egon Spengler: [translating Peter's grunts after he has just woken up] "Get out of my face or eat flaming terror."


"Extreme Ghostbusters: Darkness at Noon: Part 1 (#1.1)" (1997)
Kylie: Wow. This is really it. The headquarters of the Ghostbusters.
Roland Jackson: There's the Ecto-1!
[Roland wipes off dust]
Roland Jackson: It needs a wash.
Dr. Egon Spengler: [Egon checks his P.K.E] P.K.E. readings are through the roof. This is an indicative of a major outbreak of ectoplasmic activity.
Kylie: Ghosts walk among us.
Eduardo: And so do weird chicks.

Garrett Miller: So, what's the deal? I thought this was Egon Spengler's class "Paranormal Phenomena 101".
Kylie: You thought right.
Garrett Miller: Popular class, huh?
[Garrett notices what's Kyile is reading]
Garrett Miller: "Spengler's Spirit Guide". Cool.
Kylie: You've read it?
Garrett Miller: Nah, but I heard all about Spengler. He's an OGB as in "Original Ghostbuster". Ha, ha. I wanna hear all about how they all kicked ghost butt.
[Eduardo walks in]
Garrett Miller: Man, if I ever got a chance to zap one of these suckers.
[Garret makes zapping noises]
Eduardo: Yeah, right. Ghosts. Any moron with half a brain cell knows they don't even exist. I mean, you got to be a...
[Eduardo notices Kylie's books]
Garrett Miller: Real slick. Open mouth, insert foot.
Kylie: So, why are you taking this class, Mr. "half-a-brain-cell"?
Eduardo: The names... Eduardo. And I'm taking because it's what's known as an "easy A".
Garrett Miller: [Roland walks in] What about you, bro? You're here for the "easy A"?
Roland Jackson: Easy "A"? I don't really follow rap music that much.
Eduardo: He's asking you do you believe in "Ghosts"?
Roland Jackson: Well, I never 'seen' one, but I'm open to the possibility. Now, what I 'have' seen is the Ecto-1. That was the Ghostbusters car in an auto show. Man, these guys have some incredible hardware like those ghost-blasting things.
Dr. Egon Spengler: [Egon walks in] Proton guns. Actually, to be more accurate: Ectoplasmic molecular displacement beams.
Kylie: It's him! Egon Spengler!
Eduardo: I'm all a twitter.

Dr. Egon Spengler: I have to go, Slimer. The city's in peril. And to put it in vernacular: "Who you gonna call"?

Dr. Egon Spengler: I'm breaking the first rule of Ghostbusting: Never go solo.

Roland Jackson: [Roland picks up a device] What's this do?
Dr. Egon Spengler: That's a spectral proto capacitator. It would be known in laymans terms as...
Kylie: [Kylie grabs the device from Roland] ... a ghost beacon.
Dr. Egon Spengler: Correct. By emitting an ultra parasonic frequency, it allows the user to summon a ghost.
Eduardo: Now there's a party waiting to happen.
Dr. Egon Spengler: [Kylie activates the ghost beacon and Egon stops her disactivating it] Um, we don't want any accidents, now.
Janine Melnitz: [coughing] All this equipment and you still don't own a vacuum.
Garrett Miller: [Slimer eats Garrett's candy bar] Speaking of vacumms...


"The Real Ghostbusters: Knock, Knock (#2.40)" (1987)
Winston Zeddemore: Just because you had a bad day is no reason to take it out on Slimer.
Dr. Peter Venkman: I don't care! I don't like him! I've never liked him!
Dr. Egon Spengler: That could be part of the problem. Maybe he eats because he wants to feel accepted. Remember, he's a ghost living with four people whose job it is to bust ghosts. How would you feel?

Winston Zeddemore: Can you read Sumerian?
Dr. Egon Spengler: In my sleep, under water, and with the lights out. Of course I can read Sumerian!

Egon Spengler: [referring to the writing on a stone tablet] It's Sumerian.
Winston Zeddemore (I): Can you read Sumerian?
Egon Spengler: In my sleep. Underwater with the lights off. Of course I can read Sumerian.

[the Ghostbusters discover that they must be trapped in the Doomsday Door without a chance of escape in order to close it and save the world]
Peter Venkman (I): [yelling over wind] Egon, you kidder! I'll bet you knew this all along and just didn't tell us! Am I right?
Egon Spengler: [yelling] It's our only chance! But I figured if I told you the whole story, you wouldn't want to do it!
Peter Venkman (I): That's a terrible thing to say, Egon! You're right, of course, but it's still a terible thing to say!


"Extreme Ghostbusters: Grundelesque (#1.24)" (1997)
Kylie Griffin: Egon. I don't deserve to wear this. I disobeyed your orders.
Dr. Egon Spengler: I'm glad you did, Kylie.
Kylie Griffin: You are?
Dr. Egon Spengler: Yes. If you hadn't, Jack might have been lost forever. You see, the ooze sample I analyzed threw me off track because it was somehow saturated with... ear wax.

Dr. Egon Spengler: Kylie, you took part in a serious breach of security, tonight.
Kylie Griffin: Egon, I take full responsibility for everything.
Dr. Egon Spengler: We'll discuss your conduct, later. Right now, we have a very dangerous situation on our hands. Okay, you're the Grundel. You've been trapped in the containment unit for ten years and you just escaped. Where would you go?
Garrett Miller: Somewhere that's got dancing girls in an all-you-can-eat buffet?
Kylie Griffin: No. I'd go after a willing child.
Eduardo Rivera: This is New York, girl. Take your pick.
Kylie Griffin: Not just any willing child. One I've already got my claws in... Casey.

Kylie Griffin: I remember now. You took Jack!
The Grundel: Only because I couldn't have you, Kylie.
Kylie Griffin: Where is he? What did you do with Jack?
Dr. Egon Spengler: [in background] What do you mean, 'someone's in the house'?
The Grundel: Sounds like Egon. Why I haven't seen his smiling face in years.
Roland Jackson: Well, you're not gonna see it, now.
Kylie Griffin: [Kylie tries to stop Roland] No! Jack!
Roland Jackson: Are you crazy? Egon's coming.
The Grundel: Pity. Guess you'll never know about 'Jack'.
[Grundel is sucked back in the containment unit while Roland and Kylie are forced to hide behind the desk]
Dr. Egon Spengler: [Egon puts on a flashlight] You see, Slimer? It's just the storm.
Roland Jackson: [Egon and Slimer leave the basement] That was too close. Who the heck is Jack?
Kylie Griffin: A friend. My only friend. He was seven years old... when he... disappeared. Jack never came back. Nobody believed my story. I must've blocked it from my memory until now.
Roland Jackson: Look, Kylie, I'm sorry, but the Grundel. He could be messing with your mind. Egon said, every child that transformed into a Grundel changed back. Why not Jack?
Kylie Griffin: I... I don't know, but I'm gonna find out.
Roland Jackson: We'll find out some other way. This is too risky.
[Roland and Kylie moved the projector back in the storage closet]
Roland Jackson: And we're even.

Kylie Griffin: Egon, that thing at the window. It tried to get the boy to come out and play. We 'must' be dealing with the Grundel.
Dr. Egon Spengler: That was my first thought, Kylie, but... it's highly unlikely. You see, there's only one Grundel and Ray, Winston, Peter and I trapped it ten years ago.
Kylie Griffin: You said it transformed children into Grundels.
Dr. Egon Spengler: Every child returned to his or her normal state when we captured it.
Kylie Griffin: Well, how can you be sure it's still trapped?
Roland Jackson: There's one way. Check the containment unit.
Casey Jackson: Yes!


"The Real Ghostbusters: Look Homeward, Ray (#1.9)" (1986)
Dr. Egon Spengler: Get up - I think we've got a problem.
[to all the three sleeping Ghostbusters]
Peter Venkman: Oh, wake me when you're sure.
[pulling the blanket over his head]

Male Ghost: Can't you take a joke?
[scared]
Dr. Egon Spengler: No.

Dr. Egon Spengler: I've got a plan.
Peter Venkman: No electric shock, Egon.
Dr. Egon Spengler: I've got another plan.


"The Real Ghostbusters: Mrs. Roger's Neighborhood (#1.3)" (1986)
Peter Venkman: [hears a voice say 'Watt'] What?
Dr. Egon Spengler: [entering the room] What?
Peter Venkman: Did you say 'what'?
Dr. Egon Spengler: Peter, I'm trying to work here.
Winston Zeddemore: [enters the room] Say what?
Dr. Egon Spengler: I didn't say 'what'.
Peter Venkman: Then who did?
Winston Zeddemore: Did what?
Peter Venkman: Say 'what'?

Peter Venkman: [They open fire in a closet where they get high PKE readings] Whoa! Hold it! Cease fire! There's nothing in here but Mrs. Roger's dress.
Dr. Raymond Stantz: You mean Mrs. Roger's dress is Watt?
Dr. Egon Spengler: No, Ray, Mrs. Rogers *is* Watt.

Ray: Mrs. Rogers' dress is Wat?
Egon: No, Ray. Mrs. Rogers is Wat.


"The Real Ghostbusters: When Halloween Was Forever (#1.8)" (1986)
Egon Spengler: I have an idea, but it will take some time. You three try a frontal assault. That ought to distract him.
Peter: [to Ray and Winston] I don't know, giving us the easy stuff... do you think that is fair?

Egon Spengler: Sometimes I think the universe just waits for me to get cocky.

Egon Spengler: [Slimer goes crying to Egon] Looking for a lollypop?
[Slimer nods, gestures to Peter]
Egon Spengler: Try his sock.


"The Real Ghostbusters: The Boogieman Cometh (#1.6)" (1986)
[after the Ghostbusters confronted the Bogeyman for the first time]
Kenny Carter: Now do you believe me?
Peter Venkman: Oh, yeah, kid. Oh, yeah.
Dr. Egon Spengler: We've gotta go after it!
Winston Zeddemore: No we don't. Show me where it says that.

Dr. Egon Spengler: Why didn't they believe us?
Peter Venkman: Egon, we told 'em there was a monster in their kids' closet. We're just lucky they didn't have us arrested.
Dr. Egon Spengler: We've gotta go back there and find it again!
Winston Zeddemore: Wrong! What we've gotta do is some serious thinkin' about how to catch this thing.

[after confronting the Bogeyman]
Egon Spengler: We've gotta go after it.
Winston Zeddemore (I): No, we don't. Show me where it says that.


"The Real Ghostbusters: Venkman's Ghost Repellers (#2.27)" (1987)
Janine Melnitz: I think it's sweet, it'll make it more of a family business.
Dr. Egon Spengler: Sweet enough to get us all arrested, that's fraud, Peter.
Dr. Peter Venkman: I know! His whole life he's made a living off selling things that don't exist!

Dr. Peter Venkman: Egon, you idiot!
Dr. Egon Spengler: No, this is right, trust me.
Dr. Raymond Stantz: We're all gonna die!


"Extreme Ghostbusters: The Infernal Machine (#1.7)" (1997)
Roland Jackson: I built out of a bunch of old stuff we had lying around. Impressive, yes?
Eduardo Rivera: Impressive, no.
Garrett Miller: [bangs on Roland's invention] What is it?
Dr. Egon Spengler: Clearly influenced by the early Duchamp.
Kylie Griffin: With the anti-Bauhaus Gestalt.
Roland Jackson: Huh? It's a trash compactor. Check it out.
[Roland throws a can into the compactor]
Eduardo Rivera: That figures. Even Roland's trash is square.
Roland Jackson: Gimme that! I like to see you guys make something out of nothing.
Garrett Miller: Hey, take a pill, roll. We thought you trying to, you know, make a piece of art or something.
Roland Jackson: You want art? I'll give you art. Here look at this. What do you think of that? Come on, ol' art critics.
Dr. Egon Spengler: Wow. Now this is interesting.
Garrett Miller: Dynamic. It moves me.
Kylie Griffin: Yeah, very Jackson Pollock-y.
Eduardo Rivera: A lot better than that can masher.
Roland Jackson: It's a rag! I wipe my hands on it.
Eduardo Rivera: Get outta here!
Roland Jackson: No, you get outta here.
Kylie Griffin: Oops.

Dr. Egon Spengler: Roland.
Roland Jackson: [monotone voice] Yes?
Dr. Egon Spengler: I think there's something wrong with this. It might have given you a false reading. I want you to run some tests.
Roland Jackson: [monotone voice] I can't. I must finish my machine.
Dr. Egon Spengler: This is important, Roland.
Roland Jackson: [monotone voice] So's my machine. I'm harnessing the music of the spheres.
Dr. Egon Spengler: The "Music of the Spheres"?
Eduardo Rivera: The guy's gone loco.
Garrett Miller: [Roland takes Televion] Hey, whaddya think you're doing! I was using that!
Dr. Egon Spengler: What's gotten into you, Roland?
Roland Jackson: [monotone voice] I need it for my machine.
Garrett Miller: What, so you can crush it into a cube?
Kylie Griffin: Come on, guys. Leave him alone. He's probably trying to make something to impress us. We were pretty hard on him, you know. It wouldn't hurt to be a little supportive.
Garrett Miller: Eh, okay, okay.
Dr. Egon Spengler: Very well.
Eduardo Rivera: Heh, yeah right.
Dr. Egon Spengler: Eduardo, I want you to take me out to the site to retrace your steps from last night. I wanna know about where this thing you fought came from.
Eduardo Rivera: Who cares where it came from. It's toast. History.
[Egon glares at him]
Eduardo Rivera: Fine, fine.
[Edwardo mumbles to himself]


"Extreme Ghostbusters: Dog Days (#1.32)" (1997)
Kylie: They're gone. One minute, the dogs are everywhere, in our face, and then suddenly, nothing.
Dr. Egon Spengler: What do you mean, gone?
Kylie: I mean, disappeared.
Garrett Miller: Hey! We came, we saw, we kicked ghost-dog butt! The Ghostbusters are in da house!
Eduardo Rivera: [sleepy] Now, can we go home?

Garrett Miller: Psst. Hey Roll. Check it out.
Roland Jackson: [a girl walks down the street walking her dog] Wow. She's beautiful.
[Roland and the girl exchanged glances]
Garrett Miller: Hey. What's wrong with you?
Roland Jackson: What?
Garrett Miller: That pooch was your 'in', man; what better set up do you need?
Kylie: Please.
Roland Jackson: I'm... not really a dog person.
Garrett Miller: Oh. Miss America walks by and you choked.
[cuts to Kylie, Garrett and Roland riding in the Ecto-1]
Garrett Miller: It's not that he's bad looking guy but the guy looks more like a 'spengler clone'.
Dr. Egon Spengler: I heard that.
Kylie: Egon! We have your mushrooms and we're headed back to the fire house right now.
Dr. Egon Spengler: The fungus experiment will have to wait. We got dog problems.


"Extreme Ghostbusters: Home Is Where the Horror Is (#1.8)" (1997)
Egon: [from transmitter] Egon here. Can anyone here me? Did you find the boys?
Eduardo: Yeah, they're okay but the house got Garrett and Kylie and Roland are dead!
Egon: What?
Kylie: [Kylie and Roland get up from the rubble] We're not dead. Roland and I are fine, Egon.
Egon: [from transmitter] And Garrett?
Eduardo: [they look towards the house, which growls] Definitely dead.

Egon: [through the intercom] Egon here, can anyone hear me? Did you find the boys?
Eduardo: [picking it up] Yeah, they're okay! But the house got Garrett, and Kylie and Roland are dead!
Egon: *What*?
Kylie: [crawling out of the debris] We're not dead! Roland and I are fine, Egon.
Egon: And, Garrett?
Eduardo: [looks at the possessed house that Garrett is in] Definitely dead.


"The Real Ghostbusters: Xmas Marks the Spot (#1.13)" (1986)
Janine Melnitz: I want you to know I'm only doing this because of you, and not for C... C... C...
Dr. Egon Spengler: Christmas.
Janine Melnitz: Bah humbug!
Slimer: Yah! Humbug!

Winston Zeddemore: Egon! No, Wait!
Dr. Raymond Stantz: Those three ghosts, Egon! Are they?
Dr. Egon Spengler: Of course. I just finished now.
Peter Venkman: Egon, you sure you can't let those three loose without letting them all out?
Dr. Egon Spengler: Correct, but... why would we want to?
Dr. Raymond Stantz: Oh, no. I can't believe it. We really done it this time.
Dr. Egon Spengler: Why, what, what did we do?
Dr. Raymond Stantz: We just killed Christmas, Egon. Christmas is gone. Forever.


"The Real Ghostbusters: The Spirit of Aunt Lois (#2.41)" (1987)
Janine Melnitz: [Peter's aiming his particle thrower at Slimer, who has taken cover behind Janine] Dr. Venkman, don't you dare! There's nothing in my job description about target practice!
Dr. Egon Spengler: [coming in] Peter, stop! This is irrational!
Dr. Peter Venkman: No, Egon, finding the refrigerator empty is irrational. Slime in my shoes is irrational. This will be fun.

Additional Voices: It was a test. Would you cheat for your friend, or would you trust in fair play and let good win on its own terms? Perhaps one day we'll meet again.

Winston Zeddemore (I): [confused] What?
Ray Stantz: We knew all along that it was your soul being played for, Winston.
Winston Zeddemore (I): Oh no, you got it wrong. It was your soul we were playing for, Peter. That's why they let me play.
Peter: You mean I almost...! Then if I'd cheated it would have been my...! That's it! From now on I only go to Mets games!

Egon Spengler: [checking the equipment. Egon notices Peter's not paying attention] Transwarp drive?
Peter: [yawning] Check.
Egon Spengler: Ha! Caught you. We don't have transwarp drive.
Peter: If we don't have it, it's not broken. If it's not broken it doesn't need to be fixed. If it doesn't need to be fixed it's a "check." So "Check"

"Extreme Ghostbusters: Back in the Saddle: Part 2 (#1.38)" (1997)
Dr. Egon Spengler: I theorize that this entity will keep on ingesting matter until it's size and density achieves critical mass. And then...
Peter Venkman: Yeah, don't tell me. It will let out one colossal burp.
Dr. Egon Spengler: It will most likely become quasi-gravitational.
Ray Stantz: Like a black hole in space. Instead of moving towards matter, all matter will be drawn to 'it'.
Dr. Egon Spengler: Exactly, Ray. It will, in essence, devour everything there is; starting with New York City, then the eastern seaboard, and eventually...

"The Real Ghostbusters: Moaning Stones (#2.39)" (1987)

Dr. Egon Spengler: You must come back! We'll never find another office manager like you!

Dr. Egon Spengler: Then the only other thing we need to go on is this sample you recovered. I identify it as 'Unsidiom Demonium'.
Garrett Miller: And?
Dr. Egon Spengler: And it's a rare hybrid found only in the amazon basin.
Kylie Griffin: The rainforest. Maybe all this plant activity is nature's revenge for everything humanity has done to her.
Garrett Miller: Or maybe the tree huggers stirred up the veggies so much that they started hugging back.
Kylie Griffin: What is it with you and plants?
Garrett Miller: Why don't you ask the pod person.

"The Real Ghostbusters: The Cabinet of Calamari (#2.13)" (1987)
Winston Zeddemore (I): With Calimari gone, no one else can bring her out of her trance.
Egon Spengler: We've tried hypnosis, past life regression, ouiji boards, give-way music. What's left?
Peter Venkman (I): The obvious last resort. Haven't you seen Sleeping Beauty?
[he kisses her cheek]
Girl: [comes out of trance] Thank you. Calamari said the only other way someone could bring me out was if I kissed a toad. How did you ever find a toad in New York?
