Ghostbusters II script
Synopsis: After saving New York City from a ghost attack, the Ghostbusters -- a team of spirit exterminators -- is disbanded for demolishing parts of the city during the battle. But when Ghostbuster Peter Venkman (Bill Murray) learns that spirits have taken an interest in his son, the men launch a rogue ghost-chasing mission. The quest quickly goes awry, landing them in court. But when the ghosts turn on the judge, he issues an order allowing the Ghostbusters to get back to work.

EXT. WEST 77TH STREET - DAY (MOMENTS LATER)

The Ectomobile pulls up in front of a carefully-restored brownstone.

Stantz and Winston, wearing their official Ghostbuster uniforms, jump

out of the old ambulance, shoulder their proton packs and enter the

house.

INT. BROWNSTONE - DAY (CONTINUOUS ACTION)

A WOMAN greets them and leads them through the expensively-furnished

house.

STANTZ:

(all business)

How many of them are there, ma'am?

WOMAN:

Fourteen. They're in the back. I hope you can

handle them. It's been like a nightmare.

WINSTON:

How big are they?

She holds her hand out indicating about four feet.

WINSTON:

(resolute)

We'll do our best, ma'am.

WOMAN:

They're right out here.

She leads them to a set of French doors that open into another room.

Stantz and Winston pause to make final adjustments to their equipment.

STANTZ:

Ready?

WINSTON:

I'm ready.

STANTZ:

Then let's do it.

He pushes through the French doors and they step into the room.

INT. BROWNSTONE - DAY (CONTINUOUS ACTION)

They are immediately attacked by fourteen or fifteen screaming KIDS

between the ages of seven and ten.

KIDS:

(disappointed)

Ghostbusters!! Boooo!!

Tables are set with party favors, ice cream and birthday cake and the

room is strewn with discarded toys and games. A couple of weary parents

sink onto lawn chairs as Stantz and Winston take over the party.

WINSTON:

(trying his best)

How you doin', kids?

LITTLE BOY:

(nasty)

I though we were having He-Man.

STANTZ:

He-Man couldn't make it today. That's why

we're here.
