Remember what I told you, Slimer.
Stay away from my watermelon, OK?
I had to ask.
Guys. Guys?
It's no fair.
I'm always stuck at this boring desk
while you guys get all the action.
I wanna go this time. Please?
Well, sure. Why not?
That's why not.
Hey, guys.
Wait up, would you?
Uh, guys,
I'll be in the car if you need me.
But this is where the action is.
Ghostbusters! ♪
What do IWhat I do?
Blast them.
You ectoplasmic slimeball.
Oh, Egon, I'm sorry.
This way, Janine.
That's on the money. Hold it there.
Trap open.
Come on down.
My first ghost.
I bagged my first ghost. Yay!
And almost your first Ghostbuster.
-Excuse me?
Isn't he ever serious?
That's the last one.
Nice job, guys.
Gee, that was fun.
Guess this means
I'm a full-fledged Ghostbuster, huh?
Not quite.
Nothing personal, Janine,
but nobody becomes
a Ghostbuster overnight.
Takes a lot of practice.
Bill time.
Sorry, Ghostbusters.
I don't have any money.
Just all these old memories
I've collected over the years.
But you're welcome to take
anything you want.
Thanks. We'd love to.
We would?
Janine, why would you want
such an eyesore?
Go ahead and laugh, quiche eaters.
But I think this lamp is beautiful.
Better not rub it.
A genie might pop out.
Peter, you're crazy, man.
OK, low brows.
I'll prove you're wrong about this lamp.
-Yeah, right.
-Just watch.
Slimer, I'm going to ask your opinion,
and I want an honest answer, OK?
What do you think?
-Hit the deck.
Hey, these are watermelon seeds.
My watermelon seeds.
- No.
- Slimer!
What a bunch of bozos.
I wish I were the boss around here.
Then things would be different.
Your wish is granted.
You are now the boss of the Ghostbusters.
WhoWho are you?
I'm a powerful genie.
And since you rubbed
the lamp and freed me,
I must grant you three wishes.
Big joke.
The guys put you up to this, didn't they?
I wasn't born yesterday, you know.
Brothers and sisters,
the gateway is open and vacation begins.
All right, Slimer,
you little melon muncher.
You brought this on yourself.
This is gonna hurt me more than
OK, jokesters, laugh this one off.
Paranormal disturbance at the airport.
Better move it.
Whatever you say, boss.
Right behind you, boss lady.
What did you call me?
You are our boss, aren't you?
Yes. Yeah, sure.
Your boss.
OK, Ghostbusters, move them out.
You got it, boss.
Well, how do you like it so far?
It's outrageous.
And I already know exactly what I want
for my second wish.
Name it.
I wish
I wish Egon was just crazy about me.
All right, the coast is clear.
Janine, you're beautiful when you drive.
Why, thank you, Egon.
Janine, look out.
You're beautiful when you're
scared out of your gourd.
-Oh, man.
Ew! Yuck!
Looks like we missed the party.
Can you get a residual reading, Egon?
What? What?
Good work, Slimer.
May I handle this one, boss?
Go for it, big guy.
Knock, knock.
- Who's there?
- Dishes.
Dishes who?
Dish is the Ghostbusters. Come on out.
Ghostbusters? Ah!
OK, guys, activate Proton Packs.
We'll flush them out.
You're beautiful when you flush them out.
Ready. Aim.
What are they so happy about?
A good question.
Their behavior doesn't fit
the normal patterns.
Now where did they go?
Uh, we've got a valence,
but it's fading fast.
So is Egon.
Let's start checking the plane.
Maybe we'll get lucky.
Relax, folks.
We're just browsing.
Yeah, anybody seen a ghost?
Silver tongue strikes again.
Fasten your seat belts.
There was a time where I thought ♪
That I would never stumble and fall ♪
Oh, no. What's happening?
Easy, folks. Everything's gonna be fine.
See? Here comes
Oh, no.
Lunch is on us.
Big pan on you.
You're driving me crazy ♪
Crazy ♪

Peter. No, it's too crowded in here.
We gotta regain control
from those ghosts in the cockpit.
Then let's go.
All right. Open up in there.
It's the Ghostbusters!
Stand back, boys.
Now what do we do?
What are you asking me for?
Because you're the boss.
Although, I'm not exactly sure why.
Hey, we're about to land.
Oh, thank goodness.
On Fifth Avenue.
Ghostbusters ♪
Hold onto your lunch, everybody.
Wow, I didn't know you could fly, Janine.
I can't.
Oh, no.
Ghostbusters! ♪
The airport. There's the airport.
Ghostbusters to tower.
We're coming in.
Boss, could we come in a little slower?
The sooner we get down,
the sooner we'll be safe.
That's logical, I think.
Ghostbusters! ♪
Brakes aren't bad
and the sun roof's a nice touch,
but I think we'll wait for
the new models to come out.
Extra, extra.
City overrun by ghosts.
Hundreds of hauntings reported.
They're everywhere!
The amusement park, the beach,
the baseball stadium.
All the fun spots.
It's almost like they're on vacation.
Swell. Just what we need.
Spring break for ghosts.
But where are they all coming from?
Janine, I have a theory.
Somewhere, somehow,
an interdimensional gate
has been opened between
the spirit world and our own.
Unless we find it and seal it shut,
the flow of energy will soon
become too powerful to stop.
What do you think, boss?
I think I'm gonna be sick.
Yeah, me too.
You're beautiful when you're sick.
Ew. Yuck.
Egon, will you knock it off?
Now, come on, we've got work to do.
Wow, I've never seen such
a massive concentration of
spectral energy.
I pity the poor dudes
who live in that neighborhood.
Those poor dudes are us.
Is it the Containment System?
It's that old brass lamp of Janine's.
My lamp?
When I released the genie,
I must have released all those ghosts too.
The genie?
Don't worry, I'll fix this in a jiffy.
A jiffy?
-You called?
For my third and final wish,
I want all these ghosts
to return to the lamp immediately.
Forget it, lady.
But you promised me three wishes.
I lied.
I had to keep you busy while
my fellow spirits escaped
from our own dreary dimension
into fun city.
Looks like we're up a creek
without a genie.
Maybe not.
By combining the power
of our portable ecto-traps,
we may be able to reverse
the polarity of that lamp.
Turn it into one big trap
that sucks all the ghosts
back into their own world.
Out of sight.
Uh, there's only one hitch.
Who's gonna go inside
the station to connect it up?
The risk factor is dangerously high.
Don't look at me.
I already took out the trash.
And I've
got this bad cough.
Janine, come back.
No way.
I caused this mess
and I'm gonna straighten it out!
Stop. Don't touch that.
-Don't, don't.
-Oh, yeah?
Out of the way, creep.
Nice puppy.
You were warned.
Now you will pay.
OK, boss, we got him.
Connect the cables.
Hit it, Ray.
OK, guys, time to slam dunk
this geek back to where he came from.
Look at my desk.
Ooh, that genie.
He won't trouble you again.
Egon, don't you think
I'm beautiful when I'm mad?
I think the strain is getting to her.
Thank goodness.
Oh, the spell is broken.
Janine, you showed a lot of guts today.
Yeah, and we'd be proud to have you
as a full-fledged Ghostbuster.
Yeah, full-fledged Ghostbuster.
Slimer, no kissing.
But thanks.
Thanks a lot, guys.
But I've decided to stick with my old job.
Huh? What the
I think I'll be a lot happier
leaving the ghostbusting
to the Ghostbusters.
OK. You're the boss.
Don't say that word.
Easy. It's just a figure of speech.
Good night, Janine.
Good night, Egon.
Oh, if only I could
have had my third wish.
Boy, I'd wish for
