Peter' latest creation, a Ghost Attractor lures ghosts to the Firehouse like a magnet. He believes that it will not only save a lot of legwork, but that it will also make them millionaires. He was wrong, of course.
Did You Know?
The very premise of the episode does not make sense. Peter invents a Ghost Attractor and believes that the invention will make the Ghostbusters "millions of dollars." The Ghostbusters then are seen trapping hundreds of ghosts at the firehouse and Winston says "business is too good." In reality the Ghostbusters would not have seen any money for trapping the additional ghosts; they make their money by charging clients whose homes or businesses are haunted with ghosts to remove their ghosts. By attracting all the ghosts to the firehouse they would not only be working for free, they would essentially be putting themselves out of business by removing ghosts from the homes and businesses of potential clients. Even though the Ghost Attractor never actually worked, the decision to build it would not have made them money. See more
