Quotes

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 Ray Stantz: Total protonic reversal.

Dr. Peter Venkman: Right. That's bad. Okay. All right. Important safety tip. Thanks, Egon.

Dr. Peter Venkman: This city is headed for a disaster of biblical proportions.

Mayor: What do you mean, "biblical"?

Dr Ray Stantz: What he means is Old Testament, Mr. Mayor, real wrath of God type stuff.

Dr. Peter Venkman: Exactly.

Dr Ray 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!

Gozer: [after Ray orders her to re-locate] Are you a God?

[Ray looks at Peter, who nods]

Dr Ray Stantz: No.

Gozer: Then... DIE!

[Lightning flies from her fingers, driving the Ghostbusters to the edge of the roof and almost off; people below scream]

Winston Zeddemore: Ray, when someone asks you if you're a god, you say "YES"!

Dr. Peter Venkman: All right! This chick is TOAST!

Dana Barrett: [as The Gatekeeper] I want you inside me.

Dr. Peter Venkman: [referring to her radical change in personality] It sounds like you've got at least two or three people in there already.

Dr Ray Stantz: Everything was fine with our system until the power grid was shut off by dickless here.

Walter Peck: They caused an explosion!

Mayor: Is this true?

Dr. Peter Venkman: Yes it's true.

[pause]

Dr. Peter Venkman: This man has no dick.

Walter Peck: Jeez!

[Charges at Venkman]

Mayor: Break it up! Hey, break this up! Break it up!

Walter Peck: All right, all right, all right!

Dr. Peter Venkman: Well, that's what I heard!

[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!

Dr Ray Stantz: Symmetrical book stacking. Just like the Philadelphia mass turbulence of 1947.

Dr. Peter Venkman: You're right, no human being would stack books like this.

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 Ray 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*.

Man at Elevator: What are you supposed to be, some kind of a cosmonaut?

Dr. Peter Venkman: No, we're exterminators. Someone saw a cockroach up on twelve.

Man at Elevator: That's gotta be some cockroach.

Dr. Peter Venkman: Bite your head off, man.

Dr Ray Stantz: [Entering elevator] Going up?

Man at Elevator: I'll take the next one.

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.

Winston Zeddemore: That's a big Twinkie.

Dr. Peter Venkman: [as the Ghostbusters approach Gozer] Grab your stick!

[the Ghostbusters draw their handsets]

Dr Ray StantzDr. Egon SpenglerWinston Zeddemore: HOLDIN'!

Dr. Peter Venkman: Heat 'em up!

[they arm their packs]

Dr Ray StantzDr. Egon SpenglerWinston Zeddemore: SMOKIN'!

Dr. Peter Venkman: Make 'em hard!

[they rack their handsets]

Dr Ray StantzDr. Egon SpenglerWinston Zeddemore: READY!

Dr. Peter Venkman: Let's show this prehistoric bitch how we do things downtown... THROW IT!

Dr Ray 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 Ray 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.

[Dana has described seeing a terror dog in her refrigerator]

Dr. Peter Venkman: Generally you don't see that kind of behavior in a major appliance.

Dr Ray Stantz: Listen... do you smell something?

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 Ray Stantz: [astounded] Wow! Talk about telekinetic activity, look at this mess!

Dr. Egon Spengler: Ray, look at this.

Dr Ray Stantz: Ectoplasmic residue.

Dr. Egon Spengler: Venkman, get a sample of this.

Dr Ray 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. Peter Venkman: We've been going about this all wrong. This Mr. Stay Puft's okay! He's a sailor, he's in New York; we get this guy laid, we won't have any trouble!

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. Peter Venkman: Alice, I'm going to ask you a couple of standard questions, okay? Have you or any of your family been diagnosed schizophrenic? Mentally incompetent?

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?

Librarian Alice: No.

Dr. Peter Venkman: No, no. Just asking. Are you, Alice, menstruating right now?

Library Administrator: What has that got to do with it?

Dr. Peter Venkman: Back off, man. I'm a scientist.

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.

[In a TV commercial]

Dr Ray 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 Ray Stantz: If the answer is "yes," then don't wait another minute. Pick up the phone and call the professionals...

Dr Ray StantzDr. Egon SpenglerDr. Peter Venkman: Ghostbusters.

Dr Ray Stantz: Our courteous and efficient staff is on call 24 hours a day to serve all your supernatural elimination needs.

Dr Ray StantzDr. Egon SpenglerDr. Peter Venkman: We're ready to believe you.

Dr. Peter Venkman: What I'd really like to do is talk to Dana. Dana? It's Peter.

Dana Barrett: There is no Dana, there is only Zuul.

Dr. Peter Venkman: Oh, Zuulie, you nut, now c'mon. Just relax, c'mon. I want to talk to Dana. Dana, Dana. Can I talk to Dana?

Dana Barrett: [in an inhuman demonic voice] There is no Dana, only Zuul!

Dr. Peter Venkman: What a lovely singing voice you must have.

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 Ray 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!

Louis: [Louis, as the possessed Keymaster Vinz Clortho, runs out of Central Park, scaring a married couple] I am the Keymaster! The Destructor is coming. Gozer the Traveler, the Destroyer.

[Louis pants and sniffs, then notices a horse carriage; horse neighs]

Louis: Gatekeeper.

[Walk over towards the horse]

Louis: I am Vinz, Vinz Clortho, Keymaster of Gozer. Volguus Zildrohar, Lord of the Sebouillia. Are you the Gatekeeper?

Coachman: Hey, he pulls the wagon, I made the deals. You want a ride?

[the possessed Louis growls at the coachman with his red-glowing eyes]

Louis: [to the horse] Wait for the sign. Then our prisoners will be released.

[Runs amok, scaring bystanders; yelling]

Louis: You will perish in flame, you and all your kind! Gatekeeper!

Coachman: What an asshole.

Dr Ray Stantz: [holding ghost trap like a rat by the tail] We got it!

Hotel Manager: What is it? Will there be any more of them?

Dr Ray Stantz: Sir, what you have there is what we refer to as a focused, non-terminal, repeating phantasm, or a Class Five full roaming vapor. Real nasty one, too!

Dr. Peter Venkman: Now, let's talk seriously, now. For the entrapment, we're gonna have to ask you for...

Dr. Egon Spengler: [holds up four fingers]

Dr. Peter Venkman: ...four big ones. Four thousand dollars for that. But we are having a special this week on proton charging...

Dr. Egon Spengler: [holds up one finger]

Dr. Peter Venkman: ...one thousand dollars, fortunately.

Hotel Manager: Five thousand dollars? I had no idea it would 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.

Dr Ray Stantz: We certainly can, Dr. Venkman.

[turning back to ballroom]

Hotel Manager: No, no, no, no! All right! I'll pay anything!

Dr. Peter Venkman: Thanks so much.

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.

Dana Barrett: You know, you don't act like a scientist.

Dr. Peter Venkman: They're usually pretty stiff.

Dana Barrett: You're more like a game show host.

Dr Ray Stantz: 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 feel like the floor of a taxi cab.

Dr. Peter Venkman: We came, we saw, we kicked its ass!

Dr. Peter Venkman: He slimed me.

[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.

Dana Barrett: [possessed by Zuul] Do you want this body?

Dr. Peter Venkman: Is this a trick question?

Walter Peck: I'm Walter Peck, from the Environmental Protection?

[Venkman shakes hands with Peck and still has ectoplasm on his hands]

Walter Peck: Agency, the third district.

Dr. Peter Venkman: [Peck is wiping the ectoplasm on his jacket] Great, how's it going down there?

Walter Peck: Are you Peter Venkman?

Dr. Peter Venkman: Yes, I'm *Doctor* Venkman!

Walter Peck: Exactly what are you a doctor of, Mr. Venkman?

Dr. Peter Venkman: Well, I have a PhD in parapsychology and psychology.

Walter Peck: And now, you catch ghosts?

Dr. Peter Venkman: Yeah, you could say that.

Walter Peck: And how many ghosts have you caught, Mr. Venkman?

Dr. Peter Venkman: I'm not at liberty to say.

Walter Peck: And where do you put these ghosts, once you catch them?

Dr. Peter Venkman: Into a storage facility.

Walter Peck: And would this storage facility be located on these premises?

Dr. Peter Venkman: Yes.

Walter Peck: And may I see this storage facility?

Dr. Peter Venkman: No.

Walter Peck: And why not, Mr. Venkman?

Dr. Peter Venkman: Because you did not use the magic word.

Walter Peck: What is the magic word, Mr. Venkman?

Dr. Peter Venkman: [looking surprised] Please!

Walter Peck: May I *please* see the storage facility, Mr. Venkman?

Dr. Peter Venkman: Why do you want to see the storage facility?

Walter Peck: Because I'm curious. I wanna know more about what you do here! Frankly, I've heard alot of wild stories in the media and we want to assess any possibility of dangerous and possibly hazardous waste chemicals in your basement.

[Peck is angered]

Walter Peck: Now you either *show me* what is down there, or I come back with a court order.

Dr. Peter Venkman: [Venkman snaps back] You go get a court order, and I'll sue your funny ass for wrongful prosecution.

Walter Peck: You can have it your way, Mr. Venkman.

Dr Ray 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. Peter Venkman: [Sarcastically] That oughta do it. Thanks very much, Ray.

Dr Ray Stantz: Are you okay?

Louis: Who are you guys?

Dr Ray Stantz: We're the Ghostbusters.

Louis: Who does your taxes?

Dr Ray Stantz: You know, Mr. Tully, you are a most fortunate individual.

Louis: I know!

Dr Ray 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.

Woman at Party: [coming up to Louis during party] Do you have any Excedrin or extra-strength Tylenol?

Louis: [opening cabinet] 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...

[takes platter back into living room]

Louis: Hey, this is real smoked salmon from Nova Scotia, Canada, $24.95 a pound! It only cost me $14.12 after tax, though.

[walks up to a hapless guest, speaking confidentially]

Louis: I'm givin' this whole thing as a promotional expense, that's why I invited clients instead of friends. You havin' a good time, Mark?

[heads across the room, greeting other guests]

Louis: How you doing? Why don't you have some of the brie, it's at room temperature!

[to the Tall Woman]

Louis: You think it's too warm in here for the brie?

Tall Woman at Party: [standing] Louis, I'm going home.

Louis: Aw, don't leave yet. Well, listen, maybe if we start dancing other people will join in!

Tall Woman at Party: [pauses] Okay!

[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 Terror Dog hiding there]

Louis: So they're okay! So, does anybody wanna play Parcheesi?

[the Terror Dog growls from inside the bedroom]

Louis: [grinning] Okay, who brought the dog?

Dana Barrett: [possessed by Zuul] Take me now, subcreature.

Dr Ray Stantz: 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: I'm gonna take back some of the things I said about you, Egon.

[pulls out candy bar]

Dr. Peter Venkman: You... You've earned it

[Louis is being chased by a demon dog]

Louis: [frightened] I'm going bring this up with the Tenant's Association. You're not supposed to have pets in the building.

[last lines]

Winston Zeddemore: I love this town!

[clearing away tables in the dining room to make room for the ghost trap]

Dr Ray Stantz: I've gotta get this in the clear...!

Dr Ray Stantz: 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]

Dr. Peter Venkman: [triumphantly] And the flowers are still standing!

[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!

Dr Ray Stantz: Hey... Where these stairs go?

Dr. Peter Venkman: They go up!

Dr Ray 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 Ray Stantz: Right!

[pause]

Dr. Peter Venkman: Go get her, Ray!

Dr. Peter Venkman: [steps in front of Peck] 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!

Janine Melnitz: I've seen TV, I know you can't come in here without a warrant or writ or something!

Walter Peck: [holding up papers] Cease and desist all commerce order, seizure of premises and chattels, ban on use of public utilities for unauthorized waste handlers, and a federal entry and inspection order.

[pushes past her]

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 Ray 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.

[upon seeing the Slimer]

Dr. Peter Venkman: [very uncompfortably] Come in. Ray

Dr Ray Stantz: [on the walkie talkie] Venkman! I saw it! I saw it!

Dr. Peter Venkman: It's right here, Ray. It's looking at me.

Dr Ray Stantz: He's an ugly little spud isn't he?

Dr. Peter Venkman: I think he can hear you, Ray.

Dr Ray Stantz: Don't move! It won't hurt you.

Dr. Peter Venkman: [the Slimer charges at Venkman] Aaaaaahhh! Aaaaaahhh!

[Inspecting Dana's refrigerator for paranormal activity]

Dr. Peter Venkman: Oh, my *God*. Look at all the junk food!

Dana Barrett: Oh, no, Goddammit. None of this was here...

Dr. Peter Venkman: You actually eat this?

Dana Barrett: Look, this wasn't here! There was *nothing* here! There was this... space! And there was a building or something with flames coming out of it, and there were creatures writhing around, and they were growling and snarling. And there were flames, and I heard a voice say "Zuul"! It was right here.

Dr. Peter Venkman: Well, I'm sorry, I'm just not getting any reading.

Dana Barrett: Well, are you sure you're using that thing correctly?

Dr. Peter Venkman: Well, I... I think so, but I'm sure there are no animals in there.

Dana Barrett: Well that's just great. Either I have a monster in my kitchen or I'm completely crazy.

Dr. Peter Venkman: [smiles] I don't think you're crazy.

Dana Barrett: [sarcastically] Oh, good, that makes me feel so much better.

Casey Kasem: Still making headlines all across the country, the Ghostbusters are at it again. This time, at the fashionable dance club, "The Rose." The boys in gray slugged it out with a pretty pesky poltergeist, then stayed on to dance the night away with some of the lovely ladies who witnessed the disturbance. This is Casey Kasem. Now, on with the countdown.

[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 Ray Stantz: Hey. Does this pole still work?

[slides down a fireman's pole]

Dr Ray 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 Ray Stantz: Hey, Dean Yeager! Are you moving us to a better office on campus?

Dean Yeager: No, you're being moved off campus. The Board of Regents has decided to terminate your grant. You are to vacate these premises immediately.

Dr Ray Stantz: What?

Dr. Peter Venkman: This is preposterous. I demand an explanation.

Dean Yeager: This university will no longer continue any funding for any of your group's activities.

Dr. Peter Venkman: But the kids love us!

Dean Yeager: Doctor... Venkman. The purpose of science is to serve mankind. You 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.

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 7:12...?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."

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.

Winston Zeddemore: Myth? Ray, has it ever occurred to you that maybe the reason we've been so busy lately is 'cause the dead HAVE been rising from the grave?

Dr Ray Stantz: [Pause ] How 'bout a little music?

[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.

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.

Dana Barrett: [interrupting] 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]

Louis: [droning on] 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.

Dana Barrett: [abruptly closing her door] Bye, Louis.

Louis: [alone again] Okay, so I'll see you later, huh? I'll give you a call! I'm going to go have a shower.

[tries to go back into his apartment but he's locked himself out]

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?

Dr. Peter Venkman: [to an invisible audience] 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.
