In our top news story tonight,
local officials remain puzzled
by the rash of power failures
plaguing the city.
According to a utility-company spokesman,
crews are working around the clock
and expect to have the problem
under control shortly.
We now switch you to
our helicopter reporter, Barley Berkins.
Take it away, Barley.
What the
Uh-oh. No.
Oh, no. Oh, no.
All right, fellow Ghostbusters.
Chow time. Come and get it.
-Wait! Slimer. Wait!
-Soup. Soup. Soup.
-Slimer, down.
-Soup. Soup. Yummy.
-Yuck. Bad ghost.
Here we go. Hot off the stove.
What is it, Ray?
I call it my ferocious fondue casserole.
It's from an old family recipe.
Yeah, real old.
Oh, don't wait for me, guys.
Dig in. Down the old hatch.
How about down the old disposal?
Hey. Come on, Slimer. Quit playing around.
I know my napkin's
down here somewhere, Slimer.
Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah.
Oh, yeah.
-Here you go, Ray.
Boy, you guys really were hungry.
Hey, when we say chow, we mean now.
Then how about seconds?
Uh. Where are those power blackouts
when you need them?
Roll them!
What have we got, Janine?
Direct orders from His Honor, the mayor.
Ghosts at the Stacy's Department Store.
Oh, Egon.
Muah! Take care.
Slimer, cool the kissing.
-Careful, Ray.
-Oh, no.
Looks serious.
It is. We have a major
psychic disturbance inside.
We're going in.
Ah. A hero's work is never done.
Ghostbusters. Ghostbusters. Ghostbusters.
Ghostbusters. Ghostbusters. Ghostbusters.
Don't go away, folks.
We'll be right back before
your credit cards cool off.
-So far, so quiet.
-Too quiet.
It's just as I suspected.
Ghosts have invaded
the mall's electrical wiring.
What's going on here?
Don't ask me.
I never was any good with tools.
Peter, we're dealing
with haunted hardware.
All right. Then let's test their warranty.
Look out!
-Let go!
No! Somebody!
Back off, garbage gut.
Ghostbusters ♪
Slimer. They got Slimer.
Let go of him, you dirty
Ha! Now we're cooking.
Don't say that.
Egon, the trap.
Take that, hose nose.
Ghostbusters ♪
All ghouls, out of the pool.
Ghostbusters ♪
Yee-haw! The last one's mine.
-Oh, no.
Slimer, I'm sorry.
Our blackout problem is well in hand.
Kind of makes you
feel warm all over, doesn't it?
Attention. Resume shopping.
So how'd it go, guys?
A textbook operation, Janine.
We got all the ghosts.
As soon as we dump them
into our trusty, high-voltage
laser-containment system
We can finally eat.
Food now.
Hey, who turned off the lights?
Not me. The power's out.
Oh, no.
The containment unit will
Easy, Ray. Everything is under control.
I installed an emergency generator
for just such a situation.
It'll kick in within three seconds.
Two, one.
All right. Hey.
Oh, Egon, you're such a genius.
Yes, I know.
You guys said you caught all the ghosts.
Maybe this thing's bigger than we thought.
A lot bigger.
Without power,
our Ecto Containment System
will go belly-up in 60 seconds.
What does that mean?
It means, if you have
any vacation time, take it now.
Right. When this thing blows,
we're gonna be up to our eyeballs
in angry spirits and demons.
Ahem. Gentlemen,
don't take this the wrong way
but in 50 seconds, we die.
-Aw. Not without dinner.
-Well, Ray, any suggestions?
We could
get the generator from the Ecto-1.
And we need
a pedal-locomotion device.
-Thirty-six seconds.
I got it.
Better hurry.
Come on, come on.
Pedal-locomotion device?
Five seconds.
- Three.
- Hit it.
- Janine, faster.
- Two. One.
- Faster.
- Zero.
Come on, baby. Come on.
It's working. We're getting power.
We did it.
Yeah. Right on.
We're still doing it.
So when can we stop?
I wouldn't quit just yet.
I'm still getting P.K.E surges
from Brooklyn.
Don't these ghosts ever learn?
Everybody, into the car.
Hey, hurry back.
I ought to charge
them by the mile.
Psychic turbulence
coming from the power lines.
The readings are getting stronger.
I wish I could say the same
for our wheels.
That's because she's running
without a generator, Winston.
End of the line.
Our battery's history.
Gentlemen, whatever it is
we're after is in that power plant.
-Hey. The car's rolling.
Watch it.
Slimer, stop, stop!
Slimer, quick, do something.
The brakes. Hit the brakes.
Just what I always wanted to be.
A hood ornament.
I got a plan. Hang on.
I wouldn't dream of doing anything else.
Pete, about that plan of yours
I am the Grand Ghoul,
ethereal master of many.
- Of many what?
- Ghosts.
He's the head honcho of all
this blackout business.
Battery's still dead.
Maybe we can get Sparky
to give us a jump-start.
Raise the Ectoscope.
All right. Ha-ha!
All wrong!
All right, guys, blast it.
No, wait. We can't just blast her.
That car's likelike one of the family.
Then she must take after you, Ray.
I think she's about
to take after all of us. Run!
Made for loving ♪
All for you ♪
You hold the world within your hands ♪
It's all a mystery ♪
Hold on. There it is. Fry him.
- Or is it family too, Ray?
- Get him!
You frighten me ♪
Your curiosity ♪
Hey, where did he go?
the best of me I see ♪
Oh I see ♪
Uh-oh. Company.
-I gotcha.
-You're not the only one.
Now I'm glad we skipped dinner.
Yeah. With a little spaghetti sauce,
we could be meatballs.
Mommy, can I get off this ride?
Like now?
-Hold on, buddy.
-No, you hold on.
Almost there, Peter.
OK, smart guy, we got you covered.
Come on out.
-Me and my big mouth.
-I am Killerwatt.
My army feeds on your electricity.
It makes us so powerful
no human can stop us.
Not even you.
-Wanna bet?
-Uh, Peter, I wouldn't
Uh-oh. Mikey likes it.
Incredible. He's absorbing
full-force proton beams.
The power plant's
electricity's shielding him.
Ah! And now you die.
We'd better stop this guy fast.
Let's do it.
He's packing enough megavolts
to light up St. Louis.
The way I figure it,
there's only one chance.
He's drawing his power
from the generators,
so we have to shut them down.
There's the main switch.
Stay away from that switch.
Turn the power on.
Over our dead bodies.
Dead bodies are my specialty.
All right, New York. More power to ya.
Thank you. Thank you. Oh, you're too kind.
Eee. Ugh!
Slimer, chill out. No kissing, man.
Gentlemen, you're true heroes.
Thanks to you, our emergency is over.
The power's on everywhere.
Power? Uh-oh.
We forgot all about her.
You don't think she's still
Nah, couldn't be.
"Keep pedaling, Janine.
Don't stop, Janine."
When I get my hands
on those guys
