Ghostbusters

Synopsis: Peter Venkman, Ray Stantz and Egon work at the University where they delve into the paranormal and fiddle with many unethical experiments on the students. As they are kicked out of the University do they really understand their knowledge of the paranormal and go into business for themselves. Under the new snazzy business name of 'Ghostbusters', and living in the old firehouse building they work out of, they are called to rid New York City of paranormal phenomenon at everyone's whim.... for a price. They make national press as the media thinks and pressures everybody the Ghostbusters are the cause of it all. Thrown in jail by the EPA, the mayor takes a chance and calls on them to help save the city. Unbeknownst to all, a long dead Gozer worshiper (Evo Shandor) erected downtown apartment building is the cause of all the paranormal activity. They find out the building could resurrect the ancient Hittite god, Gozer, and bring an end to all of humanity. Who are you gonna call to stop this t

EGON:

Oh, you're here.

PETER:

Yeah, what have you got?

EGON:

This is big, Peter. This is very big. There is definitely something here.

PETER:

Egon, this reminds me of the time you tried to drill a hole through your head. You remember that?

EGON:

That would have worked if you hadn't stopped me.

LIBRARY ADMINISTRATOR walks up to the three.

LIBRARY ADMINISTRATOR

I'm Roger Delicore. Are you the men from the university?

PETER:

introducing them all

Yes. I'm Dr. Venkman. Dr. Stantz, Egon.

LIBRARY ADMINISTRATOR

Thank you for coming. I hope we can clear this up quickly and quietly.

PETER:

Let's not rush things. We don't even know what you have yet.

They go to a smaller room. ALICE is lying on a table.

ALICE:

I don't remember seeing any legs, but it definitely had arms because it reached out for me.

RAY:

Arms?! I can't wait to get a look at this thing!

PETER:

Alice, I'm going to ask you a few standard questions, okay? Have you or any of your family ever been diagnosed schizophrenic, mentally incompetent?

ALICE:

My uncle thought he was St. Jerome.

PETER:

I'd call that a big yes. Uh, are you habitually using drugs, stimulants, alcohol?

ALICE:

No!

PETER:

No, no. Just asking. Are you, Alice, menstruating right now?

LIBRARY ADMINISTRATOR

What has that got to do with it?

PETER:

Back off, man. I'm a scientist.

EGON:

Ray, it's moving.

New York Public Library, basement

EGON is in front, with PKE meter. RAY has a video camera. PETER is in the back, bored stiff. He starts making scary gestures at RAY. They come to a tall tower of books.

RAY:

Look!

EGON:

This is hot, Ray.
