Synopsis: Furious that her late father only willed her his gloomy-looking mansion rather than his millions, Carrigan Crittenden is ready to burn the place to the ground when she discovers a map to a treasure hidden in the house. But when she enters the rickety mansion to seek her claim, she is frightened away by a wicked wave of ghosts. Determined to get her hands on this hidden fortune, she hires afterlife therapist Dr. James Harvey to exorcise the ghosts from the mansion. Harvey and his daughter Kat move in, and soon Kat meets Casper, the ghost of a young boy who's "the friendliest ghost you know." But not so friendly are Casper's uncles--Stretch, Fatso and Stinkie--who are determined to drive all "fleshies" away. Ultimately, it is up to Harvey and Kat to help the ghosts cross over to the other side.

Okay. One picture

and we're history.

That's what I'm afraid of.

Come on.

Oh, man, do we

have to do this?

You want everyone at school

to think we're chicken?

I could live with that.

You wuss. Come on.

Oh, whoa!

Oh, man!

I- I don't see anything.

Do you?

No, I don't

see anything.

Let's just take the picture

and get outta here.

Fine, fine. Here,

take the picture.

Now, wait a minute. I gotta be in the picture

too, or no one will believe I was here.

Just shut up and take the

picture. No, you take the picture.

You take it.


Guys, guys, don't fight.

I'll take the picture.

Say cheese!

A ghost!

And to the Save The Dolphins

$11 million.

To the Save The Pumas

$1.2 million.

To the Patagonian Wasp

Salvation Fund:

To the Dyslexic

Dalmatians Foundation:4...

To hell with the livestock.

What'd the old stiff leave me?

Um, I believe that

what the bereaved...

is trying to express

is that the sudden death...

of her only father has

left a great gaping void...

in her bank...

in her life.

Carrigan wonders what he has

left her to fill it up with.

Hmm. Let's see.

Bobcats, owls,



Whipstaff Manor in Maine.


And I'm late for lunch,

so if you'll excuse me.

Are you trying to tell me that

I just spent the last two days...

holding his clammy hand,

waiting for him to kick,

and all I get in return

is one lousy piece of property?

No, it was lousy 50 years ago.

Now it's condemned.


Wait a minute!

This is not fair!

I'll contest it, then I'm gonna drag you and

every one of those damn dolphins into court!

Knock yourself out.

Dibs! This is all

your fault, as usual.

If you would have just

forged the damn will.

Carrigan, this is

condemned seafront property.

Oh, Dibs!

Don't you get it?

Flipper got more money

than me.


the deed's in there!

Oh! Ouch!

Ow. Ouch!


and buried gold.

Whipstaff doth

a treasure hold."

Treasure? Dibs, you idiot! Get it out!

I knew that place was worth something.

There's treasure in that house.

And finally, I'm gonna

get what I deserve.

Carrigan, I think I need a doctor.

Oh, there's plenty in Maine.

So... what do you think?

I think you're

gonna get wet.

Hey! Wait!



Dibs, light, light!

What a dump.

Wow. Wow!

This place is fabulous. You

could just do so much with it.

I mean, it's a bit spooky. Dibs.

Aaah! Aaah!



Who is it?

Who is it?

Afraid I can't

answer that.

Why not?

Why not?

It's kind of hard

to explain. Uh...

Is he the caretaker?

Are you the caretaker?


Is he a transient?

Is he... Are you a

transient? No, not exactly.

Tell him to show himself. Show yourself!

Here's the thing.

If I do, don't scream, okay?

I get that a lot.

Are you a burglar? I must

warn you that I am armed.



If you don't show yourself, I'm gonna

have you arrested for trespassing!

Okay, okay. Geez, calm

down, lady. Here I come!

Hi! I'm Casper!

You shouldn't do that

or you'll wake up...

Too late.

So tell me,

you have experience?

I have-a quite a bit

of experience.

Not, you know,

like, exactly doin' it.

But I've studied it, and I've

talked to people who have done it.

I've-a seen videos, and I feel very

confident with-a my knowledge...

I could do it,

no problem.

Then you can handle

this? It's-a no problem.

It's-a like no problem whatsoever.

Piece of cake. Piece of crumb cake.


How did it go?

Oh, it was-a fine. Was, uh,

no problem. Piece of cake.

Who you gonna call?

Someone else.

What do we do now?
