Look out, Mr. Lorne!
Hold your fire, guys.
He's taken to the underbrush.
Those are Ficus Benjamina.
We'll have to go in after him.
I'll, uh, wait outside.
He's gotta be here somewhere.
Shh. I think I heard a twig snap.
Safari, so goody.
Have a Ghost Trap ready.
Yes, bwana.
Look at that
Geraniums don't usually do that, do they?
Not in my experience.
You're mulch, fella!
Quick, Egon. The Ghost Trap.
Step on it, Egon.
I could have sworn
the ghost disappeared
before I opened the Trap.
Have you considered new glasses?
Let's go guys. I'm bushed.
Winston, you look like something
that flew through a compost heap.
What happened to you?
I flew through a compost heap.
You saved my greenhouse.
How can I ever repay you?
We'll send your bill.
I have a special reward for the one
who actually caught the ghost.
Well, I don't usually accept
individual rewards
One of my prized Geraniums.
He's your man.
If he wanted to give us something green
why couldn't it be money?
It's probably got bugs.
Hey, you shouldn't say
bad things about it.
Plants have feelings, you know.
It must break your heart to eat a salad.
Oh, it's all right, Geri.
The bad man didn't mean it.
Just stop if you see a hardware store.
I want to buy a Weed Eater.
Scientific tests have shown
that plants are sensitive
to emotional stimuli, Peter.
Sure, in 1954 Boxwood and Hedges
proved that hibiscus
responded positively to violin music.
However, they didn't like the tuba.
However, who does?
Oh, what a lovely Geranium.
But, you need to do
something about that pot.
It's too small.
I have some pots at home.
I used to use plants in my experiments
until they all died.
You probably over watered them.
You should read Professor Phil Dendron.
He's the worlds greatest
plant psychologist.
I've read all his books.
I'm OK, Your Plant's OK.
How To Be Your Begonia's Best Friend.
Mulch for Success.
You seem to know a lot about plants.
You should have this.
Oh, Egon
Geraniums are so romantic.
Any messages, Janine?
Look at my new Geranium.
We've met.
Say hello to your new friend.
There you are.
My, you look bigger already.
Now you'll have plenty of room to grow.
Lost again.
We sure needed this rain.
I hate being cooped up with nothing to do.
There's nothing worse than a rainy day.
Well, almost nothing.
He just wants to play.
Play, huh?
No, thanks.
How about a game
of hide and don't seek?
You go hide
And I won't look for you.
One, two, three,
four, five, six
seven, eight, nine,
ten, eleven, twelve, thirteen, fourteen
Hey, something
smells good down here.
-Have you seen Slimer, Peter?
We're playing hide and seek.
And you made me lose count.
One, two, three, four
Something unusual at the Brooklyn Bridge.
My dad used to sell that door to door.
Who does their landscaping?
There's nothing supernatural
about an overgrown plant.
What they need here is a tree surgeon.
They don't make bridge calls.
Wait, wait!
I am Professor Phil Dendron.
I demand to know
what you intend to do with those devices.
Just a little pruning.
You can't destroy that plant.
It must be saved
for scientific study!
Of course, Professor.
There won't be any needless destruction.
Yeah, we're all scientists here.
Wait a minute, guys.
I'm getting a PKE reading.
This is no ordinary plant!
I'm glad you cleared that up for us, Ray.
Look out, Ray!
I can't see him.
Ray, yell if you're all right.
-Is that a yell?
-I think it was a scream.
Can you repeat that, Ray?
We've gotta save Ray.
You've gotta love that guy.
We've got a serious problem here, Ray.
It's like
we never even zapped it.
We can't fight this thing
with conventional weapons.
How long have
you known that?
Egon's right.
We have to get to the root of the problem.
We have to find the center of the growth.
Somewhere out there, in Brooklyn.
Brooklyn, eh?
Well, on the bright side,
it can't get any worse.
Hit the beach.
This is concrete!
What are you doing here?
Are you kidding?
This is the most exciting
horticultural event in 100 years!
It's a jungle out there.
There's only one way
to handle this.
Slash and burn.
Can't do it, Ray.
The resulting fire could destroy
every square inch of Brooklyn.
You've got
a point there, Egon.
This plant is a living creature.
We have to try to communicate with it.
Through the universal language.
Little Petey Venkman gonna throw up.
First, we have to show it
that it has nothing to fear.
We have to develop
a feeling of mutual trust.
Never trust a Geranium.
We'd better go after him.
Wait a second, guys.
To a dedicated scientist like Dendron,
this is the chance of a lifetime.
He may not want us to interfere.
Kill the plant!
Kill the plant!
So much for dedication.
I've brought you a present,
little Geranium.
Plant food.
This way, guys.
Quickly, quickly!
Help me. Kill the plant.
I'm still getting a PKE reading.
There he goes.
Do you think that there
might be some significance
in the fact that
the giant plant is a Geranium?
Just like the one I gave Janine.
Pure coincidence, Egon.
There must be a million
geraniums in this city.
Besides, if it was the same plant
then the center of
the whole thing would be
Janine's apartment!
That explains the PKE readings.
The ghost from the greenhouse
must have taken possession of the plant.
I knew it wasn't in the Trap.
Let that be a lesson to you, Egon,
never give a woman flowers.
This is the first reported
spiritual possession of a plant
since the Haunted Zucchini scare
of the 50's.
And, of course,
that was just mass hysteria.
Come on, Peter.
That's Janine.
I'd recognize that shriek anywhere.
That'll teach her to knock off early.
We're coming, Janine.
Hey, Egon.
Hold your fire, guys.
We can't get the plant
without hitting Janine.
Good time to discuss your salary.
HeyHey, let go.
I've got an idea.
Oh, sure, that's fine for him.
Hang on, Janine.
I'm hanging!
I'll save you.
Uh-oh. Whoa, whoa
Ghostbusters! ♪
I said to save me not soak me.
Ghostbusters! ♪
What are you doing, Egon?
Give it up.
We're not going to let you turn
the Big Apple into the Big Geranium.
It's OK, he's over watering it.
It's working.
Ghostbusters! ♪
Ghostbusters! ♪
Set the Trap, Winston!
You did it, Egon.
Oh, Egon.
Look at my apartment.
It's ruined.
You're gonna pay for this.
Women. They're never satisfied.
This will make a great chapter
in my new book,
Geraniums I Have Known.
I'll send you all an autographed copy.
Oh, that's all right, Prof.
Uh, I think I'll wait for the movie.
