That's it, we've got him now.
Careful, now.
Easy. Easy!
OK, they're in position.
Opening the trap
Hey, piece of cake.
I told you this would be an easy one.
I think they like us.
I don't know, it could be a trap.
Boy, will I be glad to get home.
I'm exhausted.
Yeah, home,
to some peace and quiet.
Peace and quiet, eh?
I tried to stop him.
You guys don't need a receptionist,
you need a babysitter.
A whole platoon of them.
Peter, wait!
Just let me blast him! Once!
Is that really too much to ask?
Not yet.
We haven't finished testing him
and he's the only ghost
who'll sit still for us.
We can't let this opportunity
for science pass us by.
And besides,
I'm teaching him how to fetch.
ScienceI love it.
Well, come on.
Let's get these little nasties put away.
OK, Winston, it's your turn.
- My turn?
- It's your turn.
I did dishes on Tuesday, remember?
We traded.
Never mind, I'll do it.
Works every time.
I don't understand what you're afraid of.
There. Now that they're safely
inside the containment unit,
they won't be bothering
anybody for a long, long time.
Now to get some rest.
Hey boss,
come take a look at this.
-What is it?
-Beats me.
Hey, look at all
that weird writing.
What do you think it means?
Do not open until Doomsday.
Hey, good guess.
How do you know?
Who, me?
I didn't say anything.
Do not open until
Maybe, maybe we ought to do like it says.
Are you nuts?
We've got a subway tunnel to dig.
We're not gonna stop just because some
Nut door says so.
OK, move those drillers in.
Let's go!
Run for it!
Wait! Wait for us!
Huh, made it. Boy, are we lucky.
The subway system?
Messed up?
How can you tell the difference?
OK, OK. We'll get right on it.
OK! Let's roll.
So much for our beauty rest.
It's a conspiracy, I know it.
I spoke with the situation officer.
He says that whatever's happening,
it's spreading throughout
the subway system.
If it isn't stopped soon,
the whole city will be in chaos.
Very nice, looks a little
like your room, Ray.
It's like the whole place
itself is becoming evil.
Coming alive.
Boy, this is great!
I love a man who enjoys his work.
It's a train.
Looks like it.
But I thought the trains
had stopped running.
Hey, this is New York.
Nothing stops this town.
I love this place.
This could be very helpful.
From what I've been able to figure out,
the center of the disturbance
is 10 miles down the line.
This should take us there in minutes.
On second thought, maybe we should walk.

This is it. End of the line.
The source of the disturbance
is about one mile further on.
It's sending out enormous
amounts of poltergeist energy.
Changing the nature
of everything it touches.
Uh, excuse me, Miss?
Uh, I hate to bother you,
but maybe you'd better
let me escort you outside.
It's not safe in here.
Nasty, nasty stuff.
So what do you say we, uh
Say now
Uh, when was the last time
you saw your dentist, hmm?
Hey, what's that?
That doesn't belong here.
What is it, Winston?
What did you find?
I don't know.
But it looks important.
Take a look for yourself.
Hmm, whatever it is,
it's been buried for ages.
Can you read what it says?
It's Sumerian.
Can you read Sumerian?
In my sleep
Underwater and with the lights off.
Of course I can read Sumerian.
According to the stone,
at the far end of this tunnel,
there's a doorway
into the nether regions.
The door was hidden deep in the earth,
not to be opened until doomsday
The end of the world.
Only somebody opened it early.
It's like breaking open a dam
and it'll keep on spreading.
Yeah? So?
Peter, did you ever leave some old socks
in your closet too long?
And the whole closet began
to smell like your socks?
Well, the same thing here.
Unless we do something to stop it
the whole world will soon
smell just like your socks.
Eternal darkness.
And the Earth will be governed by ghosts.
No more days at the beach?
No more beach.
We've got to find the door
and close it again.
Even if it means we'll
never come back ourselves.
All right, all right
But if I don't come out of this alive
I'm going to be real upset.
So let me get this straight
If we don't stop it,
this is what the whole world
is gonna look like?
After doomsday,
the end of the world,
this was supposed to replace everything.
But somehow it was released early.
It's taking over the world now.
Listen, something's coming.
Over here, quick.
Look, over there, more dirt
And what's that?
Oh, sorry. More dirt!
But that's all we've
seen for the last 500 years. Dirt!
Don't row so fast,
we've got all of eternity.
Did you see what I just saw?
-Me neither. Let's go.
The 4:15 is running late today.
Hope there isn't a problem.
Yes, I'd say there's
definitely a problem up the line.
Oh, hey, I just realized
we're missing the news.
You think they'll mention us?
Nope. I think the world's
got more important things
to think about than us.
The question on everyone's lips,
"Where are the Ghostbusters?"
I'm being told that the Ghostbusters
entered the subway system two hours ago
and have not been seen since.
We're almost at the doorway.
See that?
It's right through there.
Once we get past that,
we should be able to see
the doorway and close it.
I don't know
I don't like the looks of that place.
Me either.
So I have a better plan.
Turn around, run very, very fast
back the way we came
and never ever look back.
Sorry, we have to go ahead with it.
I just wish I knew what was
inside that tunnel.
It is the place of lost souls.
All new spirits must pass through there.
But we're not dead.
Nobody's perfect.
Oh, and by the way,
no one still alive
has ever come out of there in one piece.
See, I knew I wasn't gonna like this.
Well, come on.
Have a nice day.
I wonder why they call it
the place of lost souls?
Yeah, I was wondering
the same thing.
Aren't they all ghosts?
Well, maybe this is where
the worst ghosts of the lot
get stuck because they're
too awful for anyone to see.
Egon, why do you always
wait 'til now
to think up stuff like that?
Oh, wow, that was some run.
How long do you think
that tunnel is anyway?
I don't know, I'll find out.
Well? How long is the tunnel?
You don't want to know.
All right. I've had
just about enough of this.
We've got a world to save
and it's about time
we taught these jokers
who they're messin' with.
Is this it?
Then let's do it!
Oh, hang on!
This place is like
the eye of the hurricane.
I'm just glad we don't
actually have to go in there.
Ray, I'm afraid that's
exactly what we have to do.
Our only hope is to yank back
everything that escaped.
That might be enough to
close the doors again.
But our portable packs
just don't have enough power for that.
But there's plenty of power
In there!
Exactly. So we have to tap directly into
the center of the power flow,
and hope it's enough to
supercharge the equipment.
The flow's reaching critical stage,
if we don't do it now,
the breach will soon be too powerful
for us to close it.
It'll be the end of everything!
Wait a second.
If we're inside when the door closes
We'll be trapped, yes.
With no way home. Ever!
But I just got season tickets to the Mets!
And they say it's gonna be
their best season yet!
Egon, you kidder!
I'll bet you knew this all along
and just didn't tell us.
Am I right?
It's our only chance.
But I figured if I told you
the whole story,
you wouldn't want to do it.
That's a terrible thing to say, Egon.
You're right, of course.
But it's still a terrible thing to say.
Well, if we're gonna go out,
let's do it in style.
I've got an image to protect.
Just a little further, Winston.
You can do it.
Hey, Ray, I'm goin' next door to complain
they're playin'
their stereo too loud again.
Wanna come?
Huh? What the
OK, I admit it,
I'm impressed.
OK everyone, hang on!
This is it!
Arm nuclear accelerators
Full dispersion mode!
Wide angle!
Hold on!
OK, another second.
Now! Activate capture mode.
Pull them in.
Here come the neighbors!
That's it, let's go!
Grab him!
Just one chance!
Everything you've got,
making it push us back!
Go! Go! Go!
Hurry! The door's closing!
-Ah, made it!
-All right!
Hey, that was great.
Really great.
Can we do it again?
Do not open until doomsday!
It was just an idea?
Oh, man. Am I glad to be home.
I think I could sleep for a week.
You sleep.
Me, I'm gonna raid the fridge
and eat until dawn.
Let me at him!
Let me blast him!
Come on!
Take it easy on the poor guy, Peter.
Yeah, just because you had a bad day,
that's no reason to take it out on Slimer.
I don't care! I don't like him.
I never liked him.
Maybe that's part of the problem.
Maybe he eats because
he wants to feel accepted.
Remember, he's a ghost living
with a bunch of guys
whose job it is to bust ghosts.
How would you feel?
You breathe a word of this to anybody
and I'll deny it.
Goodnight, Slimer.
