OK, we got him where we want him now.
I think we got him where he wants us, Ray.
Hey, let's get this over with quick.
OK, one, two, three, hit it.
Egon! The destabilizer.
Blast it!
That is truly disgusting, Slimer.
So, where is Egon?
We were busting Arzun,
a demon from the Netherworld.
Egon hit him with the destabilizer beam
but something went wrong.
It back fired.
Hey, wait a minute,
you're not trying to tell me.
I'm afraid so, Janine.
I blame myself.
No need for self-recrimination, Ray
What in the name of
Hey, all right.
Egon, am I glad to see you.
What happened?
Boy, did you scare us?
Egon, it's really you.
That's the trouble.
It appears that the energy backlash
has permanently destabilized
my molecular structure.
WhaIn other words, you're a ghost.
Not technically since I'm still alive.
But for all practical purposes, yes.
Far out!
Complete proto acto plasmic conversion.
Can you solidify at all?
Let's see.
This is as good as I can do, Ray.
Now, don't worry.
There's got to be a way
to reverse the process.
I hope so because I can feel
the destabilization continuing.
I estimate no more than 24 hours
before I discorporate completely.
Then we got to do something fast.
Hey, good news.
According to this,
we can construct a molecular
phase amplifier that will do the job.
What's the projected cost
of the device, Ray?
Only $78,632.
Yeah, I know where to get
the positronic circuits whole set.
What is our bank account
look like, Janine?
You've heard of cash flow?
Ours is a glacier.
A small glacier.
OK, so we make some bucks
to build this thing to save Egon.
We don't know exactly what it is.
But it's ruining our production schedule.
Don't worry, Granny Candy.
We'll make peanut brittle
out of your ghost.
Oh! No, my candy.
Let's get him.
For God's sake!
Where did he go?
No unusual readings.
Put that away, Ray. You won't need it.
I can sense where the ghost is.
This way.
I guess it takes one to know one.
He's very close.
I can think of worst places
to work than here.
Looks like it's up to me.
Heads up, Ray!
Quick thinking, Egon.
Where is Peter?
Here. Here.
Can we go home now?
Not until we've made
enough money to build the amplifier.
And we better hurry.

Boy, I'm beat.
Yeah, I think we make the Guinness record
for ghost busting today.
And I took every penny we made
to put this molecular amplifier together.
There! Finished.
A destabilizer rectifier unit.
I am loosing it.
I think
these energy waves will save you, Egon.
It's too late, Ray.
Egon, no.
No, it can't end this way.
There's got to be something we can do.
Hmm, this is interesting.
What's interesting, Ray?
Well, imagine that. He's still alive.
Evidently, the amplifier ray
reverse the polarity of the neutron flow
when Egon disintegrating waves structure.
Bottom line. Where is he?
He was shifted to the Netherworld.
Did you hear that? Egon's OK, he's in
The Netherworld?
Oh, man.
OK, so he's in the Netherlands.
Holland is not so far.
Not the Netherlands,
Janine, let me explain.
The Netherworld is another
dimensional plains, sort of a, a limbo.
Nasty place, full of demons,
like the one we busted earlier.
Not to mention lost souls
who couldn't make it to higher realms.
There's no way in, unless you're a ghost.
And no way back unless
you're very powerful demon.
In other words,
Egon got a one-way ticket to nowhere.
Baloney! I don't wanna hear it,
you got him in there, Ray.
Now figure out a way to get him out.
Uh, well, there is one possibility.
It's dangerous.
Hey, it's for Egon, Ray.
OK, let's go.
OK, it's all set.
As long as we wear these,
it will bring us back in an hour.
And It's adjusted to return
four spirit instead of three.
Which means we come back with Egon
or we don't come back.
That's right. Hit it, Janine.
Good luck, guys.
This isn't even a nice place to visit.
Easy with that, Peter.
Remember we're in different dimension
with different natural laws.
You're telling me old Betsy
here won't work?
Either that or it might annihilate
the entire in-dimensional structure
of the space and time continuum.
So much for getting in
some target practice.
How big did you say this place was?
The size of the known universe.
And we're gonna find
Egon inside an hour?
Don't worry, the meter is tune
to his ethereal vibrations.
It'll lead us right to him.
Are we any closer of finding Egon, Ray?
He should be right around here.
That's not Egon.
Whoa! Look out.
Nothing happened. Hey, guys.
Nice, doggy.
You all right?
We're back in business, kids.
A terror dog.
Haven't seen one of those in long time.
The Netherworld is a dumping ground
for all sorts of
demonic creatures, remember?
All the more reason
to find Egon and oh, no.
We'll never find Egon now.
Who's there?
Strike me not with your magic.
What'd he say?
He wants us not to blast him.
Fine. He doesn't look
too threatening to me.
Trust me, sire. I am no threat.
Merely the humble alchemist, Hieronymus.
Your accent, English?
17th century, I'd say.
You must be great wizards, My Lords.
To know so much about Paul Hieronymus.
Listen, we're looking
for another wizard, like ourselves.
Have you seen him?
Oh, indeed I have.
Tolay, the brother of the demon, Arzun,
has taken him into his keep.
That's sounds bad.
Can you take us there?
Oh, certainly, My Lords.
And you would not be adverse
to doing me a favor in return, I trust?
Uh, anything we can, Hieronymus.
But we must hurry.
This way then.
Yonder is Tolay's keep.
Tis guarded by fawns,
rock demons.
Why is nothing ever easy?
Come on,
we only got a half hour left.
This cracks leads to the dungeons.
Not even Tolay knows of it.
You know a lot about
this place, Hieronymus.
I guess you've been here awhile, huh?
Aye, since the year of our Lord 1690,
when I foolishly tried to summon Arzun
and Tolay to do my bidding.
I get it.
They brought you back to the Netherworld.
And here I have languished ever since.
Tell me what changes have come
to the world since I last saw it?
Yo, that's kind of
a tall order, Hieronymus. But, here goes.
It's true, I find these wonders
you speak of hard to believe.
Flying machines? Men on the moon?
Computer dating services?
It's great, you can meet
the most interesting girls.
Hey, you guys, look over there.
Psst, Egon.
How did you guys get here?
Reversed the polarity of the neutron flow.
You've got to get out of here.
Tolay might come back at any time.
We're going and we're taking
you with us. Stand back.
It's really good to see you guys.
We couldn't have found you
without Hieronymus here.
Name your price, pal.
Tis a simple task
for wizards of your stature.
Return me to Earth with you.
The equipment's configured
to bring back four of us.
No less no more.
That means if we take Hieronymus back,
one of us stays here.
I knew this wasn't gonna be a snap job.
Seize them.
Oh, swell.
Only 55 seconds left.
We'll hold them off.
We gave Hieronymus our word
that we'd take him back with us, Egon.
I'll stay.
Don't be foolish, Ray.
This is all my fault, I'll stay.
Neither of you will last
five minutes here.
I'll stay.
Like fun, you will.
It's fate. Tis not necessary.
None of you need to remain here.
For I shall not go.
What made you change your mind?
You have told me
of the vast changes of the world.
In truth, Earth would be a strange
and frightening a place
as this Netherworld.
This place has become my home.
It would be folly for me to leave.
Can't say I'm sorry to hear, Hieronymus.
Here, you'll need this.
Aim it, press this,
and you're ready to rock and roll.
10 seconds.
Nine, eight, seven
Good luck, Hieronymus.
Four, three, two, one
Ghostbusters! ♪
God speed, my friends.
Egon, you're back.
And you're solid again too.
Uh, yes, well, so it would seem.
Not a bad day's work.
Yeah, and all it cost us
was one proton pack.
We could afford it
and it'll make life
a lot easier for Hieronymus.
