- Ghostbusters!

- Ghostbusters!


We did it, man!

- Be seeing you.

- You got it, man.

- Have a great trip.

- Yeah.

When I'm done with probation,

I'm gonna come find you.

I know you will.

All right, I'm out of here.

One last thing.

- Remember this?

- My Indy compass.

- In case you get lost.

- Where'd you get this?

- And you will get lost.

- Yeah, I will get lost.

But it's half the fun.

- Thanks, man.

- Be good.

- Take care of those two fools.

- Have fun.

I will.

Catch you around, boys!

Bye, Billy!

I wonder where he's gonna end up.

He's gonna do great things.

Don't worry. We're all gonna do

great things.

- Are you ready for Tom?

- I'm ready for Tom!

- Let's ride!

- Come on, baby!



What was that?

Shit. I think it's Tony.

- Tony?!

- Get your clothes on!

- What happened to "Tony's in China"?

- Oh, this is bad. Get your clothes on...

Hey, Tony.

You're home early, baby.

- Tony?

- What the hell's going on here?

Tony, there's enough of me

to go around.

I'm thinking about a Tom sandwich.

Light on the Tom.

Jerry here has the reworked formula,

so I'll pass the ball on to him.

You're on.

- Now?

- Now.


Baby! You're home.


How was the surf?

Someone's happy to see me.

Well, why wouldn't I be?

Especially tonight.

You outdid yourself.

Just seemed like the right night

to outdo oneself, so...

A Thursday?

Honey, don't you think every night

should be special?

Yeah. Yes, every night

should be special, this is true.

But, really...

..specifically, there's always one night

a year that just seems right

for a celebration of a specific event.

- Do you know what I'm saying?

- Absolutely.

I love dip.

It's our anniversary!

Our first date! How many hints

do I need to give you?!

I must be crazy.

A trip? Great call.

Where we going?

I won't do it. I won't play the role

of nagging girlfriend anymore.

Would nagging wife

make you happier?

Please tell me that was not

you proposing to me.

Jerry and Denise cannot get

to the phone right now,

because we're doing it!

Jerry, it's Mom. If you're there,

will you please pick up.

Hey, Mom. I can't really talk

right now.


Excuse me. Excuse me.

Excuse me, sir? Sir? Excuse me.

You're in my spot.

I don't see your name on it.

Well, actually, yes, my name is on it.

See? Right there, Dr. Mott.

That's me. That's my space.

You got me.

But look at this, pal!


..your name's not on it!

- Hey! What're you doing? Hey!

Hey, you get back. You get back.

I'm not afraid to use this!

Hey, don't...!

Have a good day, doc.

You too.

I'm Dr. Mott!

Good morning, Sandi. TGIF.

What's that, Dr. Mott?

Thank Goodness It's Friday.

Happy Friday.

It's the weekend.



That was great. So smart.

Why don't you just ask her out,

you dumb-ass.

It's Jerry Conlaine.

- He says it's very important.

- Okay.

- Hey, how you doing? Long time.

- Hey, Dan.


There was an accident.

Billy's dead.

- You're kidding.

- Yeah, he...

He was para-surfing

down in Costa Rica.

So the funeral's this weekend.

It's... It's in Oregon.

- Yeah...

- I'm flying out in a couple of hours.

Can you make it?

Yeah, I'll be there.

Dano! Hey.

- Hey, Jerry.

- How's it going?

Oh, man.

Oh, my God, is that Everest?

Yeah. You know Billy.

He wasn't afraid of anything.

He could do it all.

Did you know he ran with the bulls?

He sent me a postcard from Spain.

- Man, he did great things.

- He did.

I still want you.

Why did you leave me?

Oh, Billy.

Billy's dead and he's still got a better

chance of getting laid than I do.
