Get in.
Good choice of words.
I'm getting a PKE reading.
It's in the cafeteria.
That's disgusting.
It's nothing we haven't seen before.
I'm talking about this food.
Chicken sal sam?
Let's get him.
I warned ya.
And let's see what
you could have had if you'd picked
door number three.
Yes art, it's the secret
of eternal youth.
This way.
But that's not all.
Anybody got a dime?
I always wanted to do that.
-Look out!
Must be in the bus.
Good guess, Egon.
This is going to take teamwork.
Take the front door, Ray.
Egon, the back.
Winston, you cover the emergency exit.
I'll go inside and get 'em.
That can't be right.
We've got you surrounded, pal.
Next time, leave the driving to us.
I came.
I saw.
I captured.
Dr. Venkman?
Hold this
for me, Ray.
Mr. Venkman.
Dr. Venkman?
Tell us how you caught the ghost,
Dr. Venkman.
Oh. Sure.
You're Zantz, Stengler
and Speddemore, right?
What's it like,
working with Peter Venkman?
As director
of the New York Port Authority
So, where's the mayor?
Excuse me, Dr. Venkman?
You're not the mayor.
I'm Barbara Mentee.
Special executive assistant
to Mr. Charles Foster Hearse III.
Eh, forget him.
Let's talk about us.
Come on,
Hearse is the man who publishes
Spooks Illustrated and Boosweek.
And Popular Fantasmics.
I bet without your glasses
I'm beautiful.
Mr. Hearse has put me in charge
of selecting this year's
Spooks Illustrated
Ghost Hunter of the Year.
- Say what!
- I'm overwhelmed.
I'm speechless.
-Not it.
Hate when they do that.
I bet this thing uses
a lot of gas.
The Slime-Life building.
Yes, Ms. Mentee.
Whoa, nice car.
Tough to parallel park.
Hey, a car phone.
Why don't you call your mother?
She doesn't have a car.
So, this is where they shot
The Wizard of Oz.
I brought the Ghostbusters,
Mr. Hearse.
Good work, Ms. Mentee.
Thank you.
Do you know what this is?
How many guesses do we get?
It's next month's copy
of Spooks Illustrated.
The Ghost Hunter of the Year issue.
You'll notice the cover is blank.
Wow! The
ghost of Elvis.
Spooks Illustrated was
founded by my grandfather.
The legendary
Charles Foster Hearse.
Are you through with that?
My grandfather created
a publishing empire.
Based on his love
for the supernatural.
His ghost stills haunts
the mansion he built.
The famous Hearse castle.
The Ghost Hunter
of the Year award
Will go to the one
man among you
Who can capture the ghost
Of Charles
Listen, I'm sorry,
but we don't work separately.
We're a team.
Right, guys?
Hey, every team
needs a star player.
The quarterback of a football team.
The pitcher of a baseball team,
The Huey Lewis of the News.
I used to read Spooks Illustrated
when I was a kid.
Yeah, so did I.
Especially the swimsuit issue.
I used to dream
about being on the cover.
Of the swimsuit issue?
You have until sunrise tomorrow.
For one of you to catch the ghost.
We leave immediately
for the Hearse castle.
- San Simoleon.
- Yes, madam.
That's what
I call a mansion.
Mr. Hearse
called it a gatehouse.
Is King Kong
on the other side of that?
Is that where the gatekeeper lives?
That's San Simoleon.
It must have cost a fortune
to build that copy of a cathedral.
It isn't a copy.
Mr. Hearse brought it back
on one of his trips to Europe.
Boy, I can never
get anything through customs.
Is that snow?
It's artificial.
Mr. Hearse liked winter.
Is that sunset real?
I hope you don't mind using
the servant's entrance.
I'll come back in the morning
and let you out.
If you're still here.
Are you sure you guys wouldn't like
to reconsider this?
We can't all be Ghost Hunter
of the Year.
Every man for himself.
This should be very educational.
Hearse assembled the world's largest
collection of books
on supernatural phenomenon.
Was that before or after he died?
Egon's right.
I've wanted a look at this
library ever since I saw it
on Haunts of the Rich and Famous.
I don't even want
to hear about it.
I don't intend to have
anything to do with this.
It's silly. We're a team.
Suit yourself.
Yo, hey, guys
I'm going to wait right
here till sunrise.
I guess I should
wait somewhere else.
I better warn the guys.
These are some of the finest specimens
I have ever seen.
That looks like
a late-blooming nasturtium.
No, it's definitely a
Wow! Look at all these books.
"Rasputin spiritual exercises."
"Rottweiler on olfactory manifestations."
This is it.
Ghost Hunter of the Year.
Oh, I got a paper cut.
This guy must have hated animals.
Anybody home?
I guess this room's clean.
'Course, I could be wrong.
OK, so?
I missed the eight ball.
You guys really know
how to stick together.
I admire that.
I've been chalked.
There goes my image.
It wasn't that funny.
That could be significant.
Whoa! Whoa!
It's a miracle we didn't hit
each other.
I don't believe in miracles.
It must be in the basement.
Anybody having
any luck?
That depends.
You mean like,
good luck?
The key to this is the word,
If only we knew
what it means.
They're those little things you see
on rose bushes in the spring.
Thanks Peter, I knew
you'd have all the answers.
Hey, anytime.
Hey, anybody see Winston?
That sounds like him, now.
Hang on, Winston!
We're coming!
Somebody needs
to have a garage sale.
This is all our fault!
How could we have
been so selfish!
We never should
have left him alone.
Hey, guys.
What's up?
I used to have a sled
like this when I was a kid.
It's a mannequin.
Yeah, this place
is full of junk.
I found
a way out of here.
It's all right.
This time we've got him outnumbered.
Oh, right.
I love it!
United we stand,
divided we fall.
Apart. All for one and
Run for it!
Is that how it goes?
This way.
Hey, that's just what we need!
Uh, uhCowabunga!
You know what it
says on the sled?
Yeah. It says,
Well, what do you know?
I guess all he really wanted
was his old sled back.
Sure, he did,
There's a happy little kid inside
all of us.
Well, most of us.
Did you catch the ghost?
Well, I don't think you'll be seeing
him again.
Which one of you did it?
He did.
Now, that's what
I call a cover.
You guys let yourself
get carried away
by all this publicity.
Magazines, T.V., newspapers.
None of that stuff matters.
You're right, Winston.
Hey, look.
They misspelled your name.
Let me see that.
