- Hey! It's the new cadet! Welcome aboard.
- (Looking at the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man) It wasn't me this time, I swear it.
- Yo! Little help!
- Oww. I mean, that was "oww" there.
- You can use the proton stream to take out objects blocking your way. That's it. Just throw the junk around.
- You destroyed a significant part of a five-star in under three hours. Your mother and I are so proud of you. Right, Egon?
- (after being slimed by Slimer a second time) Gaaah, funkified again!!!
- (About Ray being possessed again) Just like a puppy...every day's the first day.
- Help me!
- I don't know what you guys did to me, but you owe me a BIG apology.
- Are you kidding me? Haunted laundromats?
- The kid's on to something!
- Well, this looks inviting.
- Our own private shortcut to Hell. That's convenient.
- We eat gods for breakfast!
- (Opening Lines)
- Ray: Are you troubled by strange noises in the night?
- Egon: Do you experience feelings of dread in basement or attic?
- Peter: Have you or your family actually seen a spook, spectre, or ghost?
- (A Museum Guard is watching the Ghostbusters commercial, unaware of ghosts in the museum seen in other cameras.)
- Ray: If the answer is yes, then don't wait another minute.
- Peter: Just pick up the phone and call the professionals.
- Egon: Call the -
- All three: Ghostbusters! We're ready to believe you.
- Peter: Franchises available soon! Call for details.
- (All cameras go haywire)
- Museum Guard 1: Whoa! (Calls other museum guard) Russell, hey man, are you there? Come in. You near the east wing?
- Museum Guard 2: Yep.
- Museum Guard 1: B-b-by the new Gozer exhibit?
- Museum Guard 2: Yeah, why?
- Museum Guard 1: There's something headed your way.
- Museum Guard 2: Wait, I hear somethin'. I'm gonna take a look. [One exhibit's eyes glow]
- Museum Guard 1: Wanna hear somethin' really creepy? I was reading about Shandor, you know the guy who donated most of the new Gozer stuff? He was in a cult, you know the supenatural. Weird too.
- Museum Guard 2: (Startled at the sight of a skeleton exhibit) Uhh, why don't we talk about it some other time. Any other time. (Waves flashlight. He sees a woman running) AAAAA! Hey, you can't be in here. Stop! (Sees a blue shockwave.) AAAAAAAAA!
- (Shockwave reaches to the whole of New York.)
- Janine Melnitz: (On phone) Ghostbusters. Is your haunting an apparition, poltergeist, phantasm, wraith, banshee, demon, spectre, tortured soul or - [pauses] What? (Shows a trapped Slimer) No. We do not summon dead family members and catch them so you can ask them the combination of your safe. Yeah, well, same to you, pal.
- (Ray is wearing an improved proton pack. Egon is fixing it.)
- Egon: This might be a little dangerous.
- Ray: Great. Danger is our life.
- Egon: Let's start at a fifty-percent capacity. That could keep any burning or tissue damage to a minimum.
- Peter: Hey, if you're gonna burn any tissue, do it to the new kid. You can't use Ray. Our mortgage is in his name.
- Ray: I guess he's right. What's your name again, kid?
- Peter: No names, Ray. I do not want to get too attached to this kid. You know, just in case. Hehe, you want to remember what happened to the last guy.
- Ray: (Rookie places in the pack) He's tuned and ready to go. You might feel a little tingle.
- Egon: Good. We've perfected an extensive and rigorous training regimen that will teach you all your equipment's basic functions.
- Ray: It takes some time to achieve master throw skill, but it's definitely worth the effort.
- (The blue shockwave approaches them)
- Egon: Was that us?
- Ray: I don't think so.
- Peter: Ray.
- Ray: That must be some sort of side energy pulse. Substantial! A significant collective and centralized necromatic convultion. Level 7 or more.
- Egon: Agreed. We need EMF measurement checks now.
- (Slimer's cage cracks)
- Janine: I know the answer but I have to ask anyway: Is a level 7 whatever, bad, or very bad?
- Egon: On a scale of 1 to 10 I would say -
- Peter: Let me guess. It's a 7.
- Ray: Let's just say we're about to get real busy.
- (Slimer escapes)
- Peter: And that is not the fun kind of getting busy. Is it, Ray?
- Ray: Look out! Slimer's escaped again!
- Peter: (Sarcastically speaking) No. Wait. Come back.
- (after Ray, the Rookie, and Peter knock off The Stay Puft Marshmallow Man from the building they're on)
- Peter: (looking down the building) Here he goes, let's see if he comes all the way down to- Oh! not quite, didn't make it. (turns to Ray) Hey Ray, say 3 guys, the size of your finger, knocked you off the side of a 30-story building and you had to climb all the way back up to tear them apart, how mad would you be at those 3 little dinky types?
- Ray: I'd go with mighty pissed... oh, and throw in a sugar high too.
- Dr. Ilyssa Selwyn: That giant blue and white toy, man, thing, is still coming! it's climbing the building!
- Peter: I'm impressed with his agility, considering his complete lack of bones.
- Egon: (heard from Peter's communicator) Peter, we got the Super Slammer on pulse, Ecto-1 is rolling, we're re-positioning now, can you hold the Stay Puft here for just a few minutes?
- Ray: If by few, you mean less-than-one, than sure, we can do that.
- (Stay Puft's climbing causes a brief shake on the rooftop, which causes the Rookie to stumble and fall off the rooftop, only for Ray to grab his belt.)
- Peter: Hey, did somebody tell you it was break time?
- Ray: No sweat, kid! we got you!
- Peter: Well, as long as you're down here, can you see if you can knock off Mr. Sweetness?
- Dr. Rutherford: (Referring to Ray being possessed) Will he be okay?
- Winston: How you doin', Ray?
- Ray: Hazza buzza. Hazza buzza? Bozza wazza shum.
- (Possessor Ghosts attack over Radio)
- Ray: Whoa! We're under attack! We'll get back to you!
- Winston: Ray, stay away from any possess...
- Ray (possessed): KAZZA GORBA SMOTZ CHORZIG GLUMP! FROGA! FROGA!
- Winston: Um, Dr. Rutherford? If you're still there, can you go catch Dr. Stantz, please?
- Egon: I've calculated 54 different outcomes. In three of them, we survive.
- Winston: That's still better odds then usual.
- Ray: "We eat gods for breakfast"?
- Egon: Too much, do you think?
- Ray: No, I liked it.
- (After defeating Juvenile Slor)
- Ray:(Wasn't with the rest of the group) How was it!? Was it cool!? What did it look like!? Did you get any samples!? Did it have multiple eyes!?
- (Other Ghostbusters turn to face Ray with ticked faces)
- Egon: Shut up.
