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?

Nimble little minx, in't she?
DR. EGON SPENGLER
We're gonna go full stream.
DR RAY STANTZ
Aim for the flattop!
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 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!

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.

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 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. 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?
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.
DR. PETER VENKMAN
I think we'll take it.

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. EGON SPENGLER
I feel like the floor of a taxi cab.
