[Sam grunting]
[guard] Evenin', Sam.
So that's the new arrival, huh?
Yup. Genuine antique.
Straight from Europe.
[Sam grunting]
Weird thing is,
she hasn't run in over 100 years.
Long time ago, somebody jammed the gears.
On purpose.
- [gears shifting]
- There we go. Good as new.
That oughta do.
[clock chiming]
At last, the portal is open.
Go, select a suitable victim,
then bring him to me.
Who's there?
[Peter] OK, come on out.
I know you're in here.
You can't get away, pal.
Show yourself.
- [growling]
- [screaming]
Boy, did I scorch your shorts!
I'm ready for my birthday party.
When's Uncle Louis comin' back?
Not soon enough.
Then come on! Let's play somethin' else.
No thanks, Lawrence.
Somehow, I feel safer right here.
[Lawrence] This Sunday,
it's the big monster-truck rally.
Bash 'em, smash 'em and crash 'em action.
Fluff and fold time, Peter.
- Hey! Argh!
- [grunting]
New detergent, Winston?
Your whites are whiter
and your colors are so much brighter.
Man, that kid doesn't need a babysitter,
he needs an armed guard.
How'd you get roped into this gig?
I have a way with children.
And I owe Louis 50 bucks.
I'd say you should be
paid up in full, my man.
Tell that to Louis, will ya?
[children giggling]
Louis, welcome to
the world's largest toy store.
The Toy Tower.
[giggling] Toys, toys, toys!
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah!
Easy, Spud.
This shopping trip's for Lawrence.
He's the birthday boy today.
Oh, I can't believe his folks
took their vacation on his birthday.
But good old Uncle Louis
will save the day.
I'm telling you, Ray.
Picking the perfect gift
for Lawrence won't be easy.
Hey, no sweat.
- Kids love toys!
- [toy squeaking]
How about a Karate Chameleon?
[Louis] He already has one.
Brain Buster computer?
[video game noises]
He got two for Christmas.
[sighs] Louis, this is ridiculous.
We've looked at nearly every toy
in this store and Lawrence has them all!
I know. But we can't quit now.
But what else can he possibly want?
Look, I know he's maybe
a little spoiled and all,
but, oh, I wanna get Lawrence
the best birthday present ever,
no matter what it costs.
Within reason, of course.
Three for the price of one!
Now, that's a bargain.
Great. Take 'em before
you change your mind.
Mission accomplished!
Make a wish, big guy.
I wish we could skip this junk
and open my presents.
Not yet, birthday boy.
First comes the entertainment.
Thank you, Slimer.
And welcome to
the Ghostbusters Birthday Review.
I'm your host, Uncle Louis.
[Louis] OK,
I'd like to introduce the guy
who puts the "super" in "supernatural"
and the "fun" in "fungus,"
Dr. Egon Spengler
[children cheering]
And now for some balloon tricks.
Aviscagis contagious,
an exotic fever virus
found only in the Amazon River valley.
[children groaning]
Hurry up, Peter. Egon's dying out there.
[Peter] Forget it, Louis. I can't do it.
Well, let's see. You babysat
for two hours at $5 an hour.
Louis, you can't put
a price tag on my dignity.
You still owe me $40.
And here's an old favorite.
A bacterium long thought extinct.
[all] Boring!
They're a tough crowd, Peter.
- [squeaking horn]
- Hi, kids.
I'm Venko the clown!
- Oh, gimme a break.
- [snoring]
Uh, ahem.
So, let's have some fun!
[Peter] [struggling] Ow! Hey, ow!
This is really weak, Uncle Louis.
It's my birthday
and I wanna open the presents!
Boys and girls, it's present time!
[enthusiastically] And it's a
toy airplane.
Already have one.
Got one of these.
I've got this already.
I don't need this.
Got that.
Got two of those.
- That's it?
- [Louis] [straining] Uh, one more.
Or should I say three more?
[present wobbling]
Wow, cool.
Yo, Lawrence.
I'm Doofus the dinosaur
at your service. [laughing]
He knows my name!
Hey! Party time!
[Doofus] Party, party, party!
Louis, what kind of toys are these?
Uh, um, hungry ones?
[Peter] Well, so much for leftovers.
[Slimer yelling]
The goodies!
Those are not normal toys.
- [Peter] Yeah.
- Yo!
We're outta here with the goods.
Three, two, one, blast off!
[all clamoring]
Man, they didn't have toys
like that when I was a kid.
They still don't have toys like that.
Come on!
[Lawrence] Radical! Go faster!
[siren wailing]
Hey, Uncle Louis!
Great present!
[Louis] Oh, come on! We're losing him!
[Egon] No, we aren't.
We can track them with the meter.
You mean, they're haunted?
Oh, no.
Huh? No!
All right!
Toy emergency.
[Lawrence] Yahoo! Comin' through!
Lawrence, stop! Come down from there!
[all] Yeow!]
[Lawrence] Gotta catch me first.
[clock chiming]
- Pardon me, doll.
- [toy squeaking]
Stop! Stop!
No! [grunts]
- Lawrence.
- Peter!
[Ray] They're trapped in the clock!
Peter, Lawrence!
Not in the clock, Ray.
It's merely a pan-dimensional portal.
Lawrence and Peter are trapped
on the other side in an unknown dimension.
I don't believe this.
My nephew is trapped in another dimension?
Well, could we just blast our way in?
A dangerous idea, Louis.
The energy released
could destroy the portal,
rendering Peter and Lawrence
pan-dimensional lifers.
[Lawrence] Whoo-wee! Rock and roll!
What a ride! Yeah!
That's it.
Come right into my trap.
[Peter screaming]
Wow! What is this place?
[Peter screaming]
[Peter] Whoa!
Another has followed!
He must not interfere.
[grunting] Huh?
You can't still be hungry. Come on.
- [grunting]
- [toys squeaking]
Euch! I'm drowning in cuddly.
[siren wailing]
[Ray] Lawrence, where are you?
Outta sight!
This is the greatest place
in the whole world!
[Lothgar] Welcome, Lawrence Tully.
I see that you approve
of your new kingdom.
My new kingdom?
Yes. Here in Toyland,
you can have everything you've ever wanted
and more.
Argh! I must be dreaming.
This is unreal!
I assure you,
my greedy little friend, it's very real.
This is the last time I'm calling you.
Now, don't make me mad.
Aw, come on out. Fun time's over.
On the contrary,
fun time has just begun,
but for me, not for you.
Whoa! Hey, what's goin' on?
Who are you?
I am Lothgar.
I have big plans for the little brat.
Plans that do not include you.
Now, if you'll excuse me,
I must get back to dear, sweet Lawrence.
You know, maybe this thing
opens only at a certain time each day.
Of course. When the hands are straight up.
Noon or midnight.
One way to find out.
[clock chiming]
[Louis] Way to go, Winston. It's working.
[Slimer] Come on, guys!
[Louis] Oh, I have to admit,
this is Lawrence's kind of place.
You said it. This place is incredible.
Yeah, Fun City!
More like Fear City, Slimer.
These toys are all
manifestations of magic.
Evil magic.
[gulps] Bad toys!
- [gasps]
- Uh-oh.
[Winston] Listen.
Ooh, what was that?
[rattling continues]
[Peter] Easy, buckaroos.
Don't cook the clown.
Yeah, good to see you too, Spud.
[Slimer] Oh, yummy!
[Ray] Like taking baby from a candy.
Peter, where's Lawrence?
Some bad-news spook called Lothgar
is throwing a party
for him in that castle.
- [Egon] Uh, Lothgar?
- According to Tobin,
Lothgar is a demon whose greed has trapped
him in a barren, empty world.
The only way he can get free
is to disguise his world
then find another greedy soul
and trick him into taking his place.
A hundred years ago,
some villagers got wise to Lothgar
and sealed up the clock he used as a lure.
Then the clock portal
was supposed to lock him in?
Yes, but now Lothgar has a new victim.
A perfect replacement.
Someone who'd agree to stay here forever.
[Lawrence] Come on, come on.
Can I see my surprise yet?
[Lothgar] No peeking until Lothgar says.
Lothgar says open your eyes.
Is this your room?
No, Lawrence.
This is your room if you want it.
But it's only the beginning.
In Toyland, the more you want,
the more you get,
and why shouldn't you have
everything you want?
Yeah, you said it.
[video game noises]
[Peter] That's the one that got away.
He's tricky.
Yeah? Well, it's gonna
take more than that tin-can to stop us.
[proton guns powering up]
[all] Whoa!
[Peter] I told you he was tricky!
[all] No!
Ray, Winston, get behind him
and fire at the control panel.
I'll keep him busy from here.
You got it!
[Ray] You see the control panel?
[Winston] Yeah, just below his shoulder.
[all] Run!
Consider, Lawrence,
here you have everything,
but what do you have in your own world?
Uncaring parents? A worthless uncle?
Grown-ups telling you what to do?
Stay in this world
and you can be the boss.
Yeah, cool. I'll be the boss.
Then it's agreed? You'll stay?
You bet.
Oh, wait! Let go!
At last, I'm free!
- [growling]
- Louis, wait!
[Louis] Let him go!
[Lawrence screaming]
Guys, help!
You're in the way, Louis.
Guys, save me!
[Lawrence] Uncle Louis!
[Ray] Come on!
If Lothgar reaches that portal,
he's gone for good!
[siren wailing]
No one can stop me now.
We've gotta block him.
Aim for the portal.
Louis, grab the ladder!
[Lothgar roaring]
- Gah!
- [Winston] OK, nab him!
Tap out. Go for it, Spud!
You got it, Peter!
Trap open!
- Hey, it's gonna be all right, big guy.
- [sobbing]
He's gone.
With Lothgar contained,
his powers are nullified, Lawrence.
You'll be fine.
Of course, without the supernatural factor
to keep it intact
Toyland is history.
Let's blow this pop-stand.
There's only one way to seal
that portal permanently.
Yeah, cook that clock.
- It's all over, Lawrence.
- Good.
[Winston] Everybody
in favor of goin' home, say
[all] Aye!
[Lawrence] Hold it.
I just, you know, wanna say that, mmm,
I've been a total jerk.
And, uh, um, you know,
thanks for saving my life and stuff.
[Slimer] [sniffling] Aw
And when I grow up,
I wanna be a real Ghostbuster.
Hey, we were only doin' our job, Lawr
Just like my Uncle Louis.
