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.

BOY:

My dad says you're full of crap.

STANTZ:

(stopped cold)

Well, a lot of people have trouble believing

in the paranormal.

BOY:

No, he just says you're full of crap and that's

why you went out of business.

He kicks Stantz in the leg. Stantz grabs him by the shirtfront.

STANTZ:

(low and menacing)

I'm watching you.

(to Winston)

Song.

Winston switches on a tiny TAPE RECORDER which starts PLAYING the

Ghostbusters THEME SONG. Stantz and WInston start singing

STANTZ AND WINSTON

'There's something wrong in the neighborhood.

Who you gonna call?'

KIDS:

(all together)

He-Man!!

CUT TO:

EXT. WEST 77TH STREET - DAY (LATER)

Stantz and Winston wearily load their equipment into the Ectomobile.

WINSTON:

That's it, Ray. I've had it. No more parties.

I'm tired of taking abuse from over-privileged

nine-year-olds.

STANTZ:

Come on, Winston. We can't quit now. The

holidays are coming up. It's our best season.

They get in the car

INT. ECTO-1 - DAY (CONTINUOUS ACTION)

Stantz tries to start the car, but the engine won't turn over.

WINSTON:

Give it up, Ray. You're living in the past.

Ghostbusters doesn't exist anymore. In a year

these kids won't even remember who we are.

STANTZ:

(tries to start the car again)

Ungrateful little Yuppie larvae. After all we

did for this city.

WINSTON:

Yeah, what did we do, Ray? The last real job

we had we bubbled up a hundred foot marshmallow

man and blew the top three floors off an uptown

highrise.

STANTZ:

Yeah, but what a ride. You can't make a

hamburger without chopping up a cow.

He turns the key again, the ENGING TURNS OVER, then starts GRINDING and

CLUNKING disastrously, chewing up vital parts and dropping twisted bits

of metal onto the pavement. Finally, with a BLAST of black sooty

exhaust from the tailpipe, Ecto-1 shudders and dies. Frustrated, Stantz

bangs his head lightly on the steering wheel
