It sure is nice that things
have been slow lately.
Sure is.
I mean, we could all use a break, right?
Sure could.
- Let me get it!
- Hey, no! I was first!
If it's haunted, we want it.
Oh. No, thanks.
What? What was it?
Somebody wanting to sell us
swampland in Florida.
It was probably my dad.
What are we gonna do?
We haven't had a case in weeks.
Maybe we've run out of ghosts to bust.
Now, that's a scary thought.
This supernatural
drought has put us severely in the red.
If we don't get a case soon,
we may go bankrupt.
How soon, Egon?
I'd say
In the next 15 minutes.
We got a cutoff notice
from Con Ed today too.
Uh-oh. We can't let them
shut down our power again.
No kidding.
So, what are we gonna do?
There's no other choice, guys.
We've got to go out and get
Don't say it, Egon. Please.
Jobs, Peter.
We've got to get jobs.
Ahhh! No, anything but that!
Egon and Winston are right.
We're gonna have to
make some money, quick.
The want ads.

Hey, come back!
Never mind. You can have it.
Hey, you.
Oh, me?
Yeah, you.
How'd you get in there?
Like this. See?
I don't know what you are,
but I can use you.
You hungry?
Yeah. Yeah, yeah, yeah!
You help me, and I'll feed you.
So did anybody else manage to get a job?
It's a jungle out there.
What now?
We can always resort to sheer panic.
Here it is.
Way to go, slimeball. Here.
Ooh, that was good.
I look real pretty.
Hey, knock off the noise.
Hey, it's Slimer!
What's he doing in there?
Someone's robbing the jewelry store.
Let's get him!
Hey, where are you going?
- Stop!
- Come back here!
- Hold it!
- Citizen's arrest!
Ray, I
He's getting away.
Not as long as I've got old Betsy here.
Huh? Oh, no.
Quick thinking, Peter.
Ah. It's nothing any brave,
clever hero of the people
wouldn't have done.
A $10,000 reward
for busting that thief.
Not bad, huh?
Not bad, but not good.
It'll pay our back bills,
but we've still got to have
a regular source of income.
Gosh, it's too bad we can't bust crooks
like we used to bust ghosts.
Wait a minute. Why can't we?
After all, if there's one thing New York
will never run out of, it's criminals.
Become crime fighters.
Hey, I like it. I'm excited.
Yeah. I could reconfigure
the traps to handle living beings.
The particle throwers can be attuned
to people's bioelectric fields.
My dad's got some props,
and my mom can make the curtains.
Sorry, couldn't resist.
We're rich.
We're on easy street.
Yeah, and we got away clean.
Don't be too sure about that.
Is it the cops?
No. You're not gonna believe this,
but it's the Ghostbusters!
These modified traps and packs
had better work, Ray.
Hey, trust me.
All right, nobody moves.
You gotta be kidding.
Yeah, we ain't ghosts.
No, but we can arrange that.
Hit it.
-The trap, Ray.
-Hey, what is this?
-This ain't fair!
-Let us out. Come on!
All right.
It works!
I never doubted it.
We're back in business.
Good news.
Not only are we out of debt,
but we've got over $30,000 in the bank.
Gee, I guess crime does pay.
Us, anyway.
It better, considering
how much food Slimer's packing away.
Relax, Peter, we got money to burn.
You know, ghost-busting
was never this profitable.
Yeah, I just hope nothing goes wrong.
What could go wrong?
The Crimebusters.
They've ruined nearly
all of my operations.
This has gone too far.
It's time I take care of them
once and for all.
Yo, Janine, we got all this money
and we don't know what to do with it.
Hey, take it easy, Slimer.
What's wrong?
-Someone was here?
-Yeah, yeah, yeah!
How many syllables?
First word sounds like
Listen to this.
"If you wanna see
your secretary again,
you will cease and desist
all your crime-fighting activities.
Signed, Crime Lord."
Crime Lord?
I've heard of him.
He's the top racket boss in New York.
Well, he picked on the wrong
guys this time.
Wait, Peter.
We mustn't do anything rash.
Yeah. Janine's depending on us.
Wait a minute.
I got a plan!
You sure this'll work?
It should.
I've reset the meter to
pick up Janine's biorhythms.
Turn left here.
I don't think we're dressed
well enough to bust this place.
This is it.
This is what?
Where they're holding Janine.
- Yike.
- Yike.
Gee, now I know why they say
criminals live in the underworld.
Are you sure
Janine's down here, Egon?
The readings are getting stronger.
It's the subway train's graveyard.
Must be some kind of storage
area for broken-down cars.
We're getting close.
Over there.
OK, everybody keep quiet.
Whoa! Ooh!
We can't take you anywhere.
Take cover!
They're shooting at us!
Figured that out, did you?
They're too far away for the traps.
There's one chance.
If I can magnetize
one of the subway rails
Cover me!
I did it!
It's magnetized.
Run for it!
All right! Let's get 'em!
Talking full stream. Hit it!
Whoa! No!
Hello, Janine.
Sure took you long enough.
Nice to see you too, Janine.
How'd you get
those crooks to tell you
where Crime Lord's headquarters is, Peter?
Slimer just went, "Ooga-booga" at them,
and they told me everything.
So much for the little fish.
The Crimebusters!
Right the first time, Crime Lord.
Let's go.
You're taking the fall.
Fools, you got nothing on me.
Oh, no? How about signed confessions
that you ordered our secretary kidnapped?
Blast it!
He's headed for the roof, come on!
Don't let him get away!
He got our cannon!
That's cheating!
Just a little closer, Egon.
Got him.
-Way to go, Winston!
-All right!
Have you seen these headlines?
"Crimebusters smash
Crime Lord's syndicate.
New York streets safe again."
Yep, no doubt about it.
We do good work.
Too good, I'd say.
We've taken care
of all the crime in New York.
What are we gonna do to make money now?
Well, we could
Uh, there's always
Maybe we should try
- Wait, wait!
- Let me get it. No, no!
-It's for me.
-Come on, let me get it. I was first.
Uh-huh. I got the address. A what?
What is it, a burglary?
No, it's a ghost.
A ghost?
They want you to bust it.
Here's the address.
It's another one.
A class seven vapor.
Just like old times.
