Quotes

Peter Venkman: Watch out for that hot dog cart Winston. Don't hit that newstand!
Winston Zeddemore: Ray, we should've put another wheel in the back seat for him.


Louey the ghost: You'll never take me alive coppers!
Egon Spengler: Of course not, you're a ghost!
Louey the Ghost: Oh yeah. I keep forgetting!


Peter Venkman: Another ghost, another dollar.


Winston Zeddemore: Boy I'm exhausted.
Peter Venkman: Yeah, I don't know about you guys, but I'm gonna sleep like the dead.
Egon Spengler: Possibily not the most appropriate metaphor Peter, considering our line of work.


Winston Zeddemore: Remember, as long as you're not afraid, he can't hurt you.
Ray Stantz: Hmph! I want a glass of water.
Peter Venkman: (Hands Ray a glass of water) Here, now go to sleep!
Ray Stantz: Peeteerr.
Peter Venkman: What?!
Ray Stantz: Tell me a story.
Winston Zeddemore: He's just getting into the role.
Peter Venkman: He's gonna be in a bodycast if he keeps this up! (Looks over at Ray and starts telling a story) Once upon a time there were four Ghostbusters who had a job to do, only they couldn't do it 'cause one of them wouldn't go to sleep! THE END!!! (Slams door)
Ray Stantz: Thppt!!


Egon Spengler: Go! I'll hold him off!
Peter Venkman: Oh Yeah? You and what Starfleet?
