Copyright Notice & Disclaimer ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 1. Cinematic One ================ Ray Stantz "Are you troubled by strange noises in the night?" Egon Spengler "Do you experience feelings of dread in your basement or attic?" Egon shines flashlight, the TV screen skips Peter Venkman "Have you or your family actually seen a spook, specter or ghost?" Ray Stantz "If the answer is yes, then don't wait another minute." 1991 A security guard is watching a Ghostbusters commercial. Peter Venkman "Just pick up the phone and call the professionals!" "Call the...Ghostbusters! We're ready to believe you!" Peter Venkman "Franchises available soon! Call for details." The feeds go and TV's short out, guard grabs his walkie-talkie Guard #1 "Oh! Russell! Hey, man. You near the East Wing?" Russell "B-b-by the new Gozer exhibit? Yeah. Why?" Guard #1 "There's something headed your way!" Russell "Wait. I hear something. I'm gonna take a look." Guard #1 "You wanna hear something really creepy? I was reading about Shandor, you know the guy who donated most of the Gozer stuff. He was into the occult. You know, the supernatural. Weird dude." Eyes light up. Russell sees a skeleton. Russell "Ahhh!" Russell speaks into walkie Russell "Ummm, why don't we talk about it some other time. Any other time." Russell "Ahhh!" A woman runs past him. Russell "Hey, you can't be in here! Stop!" Russell runs after here then stops Russell "Ahhhhhhh!" The Natural History Museum A psi energy pulse surges out of the museum through New York City, past the Statue of Liberty Ghostbusters No Ghost logo Ecto 1-b reverses into the Firehouse Janine Melnitz "Ghostbustas. Is your haunting an apparition, poltergeist, phantasm, wraith, banshee, demon, specter, tortured soul or...What? No, we do not summon dead family members then catch them so you can ask the combination to the safe..." Slimer in an Ecto-Containment Chamber. He is playing with Peter's ESP cards, and isn't doing so well. Janine Melnitz "Yeah, well, same to you, pal." Loading Screen... Egon strapping a Proton Pack on Ray. Ray Stantz "Hey! It's the new cadet. Welcome aboard!" Egon Spengler "This might be a little dangerous." Ray Stantz "Great. Danger is our life." Egon Spengler "We'll start at fifty-percent capacity. That should keep any burning or tissue damage to a minimum." Peter Venkman "Hey. If you're gonna burn any tissue, do it to the new kid. You can't use Ray. Our mortgage is in his name." Rookie frowns Ray Stantz "I guess he's right. What's your name again, kid?" Peter Venkman "No names, Ray. I don't want to get too attached to his kid. You know, just in case. You remember what happened to the last guy?" Ray Stantz "He's tuned and ready to go." Egon Spengler "You may feel a little tingle." Egon Spengler "Good. We've perfected an extensive and rigorous training regimen that will teach you all your equipment's basic functions." Ray Stantz "It takes some time to achieve Master Throw Skill, but it's definitely worth the effort." The psi energy pulse moves through the Firehouse. Egon Spengler "Was that us?" Ray Stantz "I don't think so." Peter Venkman "Ray?" Ray Stantz "Had to be some sort of Psi energy pulse. Substantial! A significant collected and centralized necromantic convulsion level seven or more." Egon Spengler checks with P.K.E. Meter Egon Spengler "Agreed. We need EMF measurement checks now." Janine Melnitz "I know the answer, but I'm gonna ask anyway... is a level seven, uh, whatever...bad? Or very bad?" Slimer finds a crack in the chamber. Egon Spengler "On a scale of one to ten, I would say..." Peter Venkman "Let me guess. It's a seven." Ray Stantz "Let's just say we're about to get real busy." Slimer bursts through chamber. Peter Venkman "And that is not the fun kind of getting busy - is it, Ray?" Ray Stantz "Look out. Slimer's escaped again!" "Let's move!" 2. Level 1 Disturbance Ground Zero Dialogue =========================================== Take fire pole down then follow Ray downstairs to the basement. Slimer looking at containment unit. Egon Spengler "There it is. It seems oddly drawn to the containment grid." Ray Stantz "He's been fascinated with it ever since you added the viewer to the unit. Okay. Easy now, cadet. I'll talk you through this. Use the proton stream to get his attention." Rookie shoots at Slimer and hits the Containment Unit. Ray Stantz "No! Not the Containment Unit! That's some highly sensitive equipment you're disintegrating there, kid!" Egon runs to the Unit. Rookie goes with Ray through door. Ray Stantz "Oops! You let one out!" Egon Spengler "That's my fault. I was fine-tuning the interspatial gasket this afternoon. I'll fix it. You two get those ghosts back." Ray Stantz "Hey, this will work out great! Since you're already strapped into a pack, it's a perfect opportunity for some training! Taking the right precautions, Slimer's harmless. Uh, more or less. Not sure about the other guy, though... Okay, let's go get'em, then. Oh, and don't sweat the containment unit. It's easy to get excited your first time out with the proton stream. Egon will fix it in no time." Ray and Rookie go down hall through another door into a dark wide room. Ray Stantz "Now, first and foremost, before things get out of hand. You want to get to know your proton pack. It can be your best friend out there in the field. Everything you need to know is displayed on the pack itself! Here's where you keep an eye on your current physical condition. The more green that's on the bar, the more damage you can sustain and still stay on your feet. This bar indicates your pack's heat level. When it gets to the top, you'll want to vent the pack and keep it from shorting out and resetting. For the most part, capturing a ghost is pretty straightforward. We break it into three basic steps: Sap 'em, Cap 'em, and Trap 'em. The first step is blasting a ghost to sap its energy." Blast at Slimer. Ray Stantz "You're a wicked shot, Noobie! See that overlay on the ghost? It indicates the current accumulation of a ghost's PKE. The more you disperse, the weaker it becomes. Pack's moving into the red, cadet! Vent it!" Slimer eventually goes through a wall. Ray Stantz "Ooh! We lost Slimer!" The Sloth Ghost appears. Ray Stantz "Ugh. And I thought Slimer was disgusting." After blasting the ghost... Ray Stantz "All right, you've got it good and winded. Next state. Cap 'em! You can project a capture stream, or wrangler, manually, using this control. On the other hand, the pack will detect when a ghost is sufficiently weakened and auto-select the capture stream setting. Get in there and throw a capture stream on that tub of goo! Fantastic! You've got it! Soon as your ghost is in your capture stream, the slam meter begins to slowly charge. Keep it centered in the cone and let the trap do the work! And...there! Oh, yes! One escapee accounted for. Oh and always remember to retrieve your trap!" Egon Spengler "Did you get them?" Ray Stantz "Ah, we batting .500. Slimer slipped out. Our cadet bagged his first one though! A very nasty customer. Oh, and you've got to be very careful about crossing the streams. In a word: don't do it. Seriously. Stings like the dickens, too." Rookie picks up the trap. 3. Cinematic Two (Between Level 1 and Level 2) ============================================== Ghostbusters regroup on the main floor near the foot lockers. Peter Venkman "Hey, how come this mump gets all the new stuff?" Egon Spengler "He's out new "Experimental Equipment Technician"." Peter Venkman "He gets a cool title, too?" Ray Stantz "It means he gets to carry around a bunch of untested, extremely dangerous hardware that if not handled correctly could blow him somewhere into New Jersey." Peter Venkman "Oh, this knucklehead lugs around our very dangerous prototype hardware that could potentially blow us into New Jersey? Thanks! Keep the title, kid. It'll work hard for you." Everyone at Ecto 1-b. Ray Stantz "Scooter? We need to go, let's roll." Peter Venkman "Where to, Ray?" Ray Stantz "The Sedgewick Hotel. It's the first place that little spud will go." Egon Spengler "Right. Back to its initial manifestation point." Ray Stantz "They've got a real good buffet." Peter Venkman "It is a great one. When Winston returns from the opera, extend an invitation to join us at our table at the Sedgewick. Hey you! You're up, buddy! Training will be on the job tonight. Try not to destroy too many Manhattan landmarks...that's our job." Ecto 1-b exits the Firehouse and pulls up to the Sedgewick Hotel. 4. Level 2 Welcome to the Sedgewick Dialogue ============================================ Rookie walks into a conversation between Peter and Sedgewick Hotel manager, John O'Keefe John O'Keefe "That disgusting green blob is up on the 12th floor again, wreaking havoc! I demand a refund right now!" Peter Venkman "Sir, if you check the fine print on our invoice." Ray Stantz "Invoices." Peter Venkman "Right, invoices...you'll see that your warranty on re-haunting expired some time ago. You should've taken the extended service agreement." John O'Keefe shakes his head. Egon Spengler "I'm getting some interesting PKE spikes here. Disturbances don't seem to be exclusive to the 12th floor. I'd like the chance to look around the building a little more." Ray Stantz "Good. Dig up what your can. That little greenie shouldn't cause us too much trouble." Peter, Ray, and Rookie wait for the elevator. The woman from the museum emerges from it. Peter Venkman "Well, hello. You're perfectly safe now, Miss. The Ghostbusters are here." Ilyssa Selwyn "Back off, loser. Never gonna happen." Ilyssa walks away. Peter Venkman "Haha. That approach rarely works with me. I'll show you why later." Trio enters elevator. Ray Stantz "Alright ace, get ready." Peter Venkman "Dr. Stantz, if you'd do the honors?" Ray Stantz "Proud to, Dr. Venkman." Peter Venkman "Part of our settlement with the city: proton packs must remain off in heavily populated public areas." Ray Stantz "And in close quarters. It minimizes the city's liabilities and satisfies the restraining order the maid here had put on us." Trio exits elevator. Peter Venkman "World we live in today. You shoot a proton stream of highly charged particles at someone...they get all sue-happy." A porter rounds the corner. Peter Venkman "It's him!" Peter opens fire on the luggage. Porter runs for it. Ray Stantz "Nice. Now we got another plaintiff." Peter Venkman "Aw, come on, Ray! I'm the one that gets a face full of slime every time the little green buddy escapes! He doesn't even know me well enough to hate me." Luggage starts flying at them. Ray Stantz "Watch it! Contact." Ray looks around corner and sees Slimer. Ray Stantz "Alright...showtime. We wear him out, then we capture him. That's what your proton stream is for." Rookie fires at Slimer. Ray Stantz "You've got him on the run! C'mon, let's go! Peter!" Peter Venkman "Nah, I've seen this one already. Know how it ends. You two have fun though. I'll cover the elevators and escort any ladies safely to their rooms." If Rookie follows Peter... Peter Venkman "Stop staring at me! You're creepier than that ghost. Go down with Ray!" Peter Venkman "You're making the right career move, believe me. But also missing a great time with 'Ol Doc Stantz down there." If Rookie goes with Ray... Ray Stantz "Yeah, ok. And this signal looks just like your elusive little targeted entity. Your meter will flash and buzz when it detects a potential signal. The Paragoggles are linked directly to your active PKE Meter. This lets you see otherwise undetectable phenomena, while you track it. Ghost trails, object auras, all kinds of cool events! Now, when the center bar peaks, you're headed in the right direction. When it's flat, you're following a cold trail. Line the target up with the smallest circle for the best scan. Okay! You got it! Now, just take a scan. Way to go! Red signifies a hidden ghost. Green indicates an environmental paranormal anomaly. Blue means an active sample. Getting warmer... Careful! Getting a good scan is sort of like taking a good snapshot. When you've got an entity in range, hold the scan button. This will analyze the ghost's PKE signatures and cross-reference them with your online Tobin's Spirit Guide Database. You can then access useful Careful!" Ray and Rookie move through halls, and see a vandalized set of vending machines. Ray Stantz "Phew! Whoa! He's definitely been here. An 'active sample' is something you can collect, like a cursed artifact. We get paid extra for everything we scan and collect. Then we roll it back into Research and Development. The extra funds let us experiment with new equipment and offensive technologies. Which, in turn, you get to wear on your back to test. Remember, you can always review techniques, tutorials, and equipment in your online Ghostbusters Field manual. It's all accessible from your PKE Meter." Peter radios Ray. Peter Venkman "Ray! I don't feel good!" Ray Stantz "Peter, come in! You okay? Uh-oh. Man down! We've got a man down! Go, go, go! C'mon! Shake a leg! You can move faster than that, can't you? Double-time, cadet!" They find Peter, on the ground. Ray Stantz "He's been slimed! Again! Hustle over here and help him up, will ya?" Peter Venkman "How did this even happen? I was covering the elevators! How did this even happen? I was covering the elevators!" Ray Stantz "When one of us goes down, we always help each other out. It's all about teamwork." Peter Venkman "Oh, no, my friend. That was back in the pre-sliming era. Right now, it's all about payback!" Egon comes up on radio. Egon Spengler "You guys need to get down here immediately. Our live-in science experiment is tearing apart the lobby, and he's not alone." Ray Stantz "More ghosts? But we gave this hotel a clean bill of health five years ago." Peter Venkman "New people die everyday. Call the elevator, Junior. I'm not taking the stairs. Today's not my cardio." Trio gets into elevator. Ray Stantz "Alright, Slimer! You've had your fun! The elevator's off-limits! Egon, come in. I think we're stuck in the elevator. We need some HELP!" Peter Venkman "Think we're stuck? Well, let's see... Think we're stuck, think we're stuck, think we're stuck... Ray, you guys uh...good with officially stuck in the elevators? Show of hands..." Ray Stantz "Here it comes..." Peter Venkman "Kill it, Ray." Egon Spengler "Need a hand?" Peter Venkman "You always fail me, Ray. Don't you?" Ray shrugs. They see Slimer but Bellhop Ghosts, too. Ray Stantz "Nevermind the Onionhead for now. The ghost with the red cap is fighting hard to hold stasis!" Peter Venkman "Come on! He's a New York bellhop! Just tip him, will ya?" The last Bellhop Ghost is trapped. Ray Stantz "That convulsive PK Shockwave really stirred the nest. Man, this lobby is so wrecked!" Egon Spengler "Can we please call Winston and tell him his night off has officially ended?" More ghosts arrive. Ray Stantz "More of them!" Slimer flees the lobby as do the Bellhop Ghosts. Ray Stantz "They've split up!" Egon Spengler "Ray, follow me! The others are floating upstairs. Venkman, you two pull our friend Slimer into a trap as fast as you can. There's a massive bulge in these spikes indicating this isn't just some routine clearing job." Peter Venkman "He gets so bossy when he hasn't had his nap. Hey now...is that honey glazed ham... and prime rib? There. The Alhambra Ballroom. No way he could pass that up." John O'Keefe "Absolutely not! You can't go in, the Rodriguez Bar Mitzvah is set to start in half an hour!" Peter Venkman "I'll bet the beef brisket is today's special." John O'Keefe "...and you've done quite enough already. I'm sure the... thing ...will just go away..." They hear sounds from the ballroom. John O'Keefe "I...I'm willing to risk it. You're not going in there!" Peter Venkman "That's all we needed to hear. Alright, we're out! Coffee time, everyone! Service has been declined beyond this point." Egon Spengler on radio "Sounds like the Alhambra's off limits." Peter Venkman "The shnutz you say. Nobody slimes Pete Venkman twice and gets away with it." Egon Spengler on radio "Be careful, Peter. Remember the Ellis Island incident?" John O'Keefe "This is terrible!" Peter and Rookie head across the lobby. Peter Venkman "You bring your apron? We're gonna take a little shortcut through the kitchen. The Alhambra should be right through...here. Hello? Chef? Okay, champion. You lead for a while. Alright, don't touch the slime. It's slimy...and it's extremely dangerous." Dishes fall on them. Peter Venkman "Yaaghhh! You'd think I'd be used to that stuff by now! Nothing to worry about. Most kitchens have self starting pilot lights. Heads up!" Pappy Sargassi flies past. Peter Venkman "Okay, I dare ya! Everything but the kitchen sink. This is why I eat out of a can. Alright, check this out. To trap him, you've gotta grab him and to grab him, you use the other half of the Proton Wand, the Capture Stream. That's all there is to it. You just throw this junk anywhere. We don't stick around and clean up. You know, I thought that guy said 'Rodriguez Bat Mitzvah.'" Slimer flies to a cake and starts eating it. Peter Venkman "Would it kill him to mix in a green salad once in a while? I'm gonna take backup. Blast him until he's dazed and then throw your Capture stream on him. Good, good. That's it, buddy. You've got the little monster breathing hard. Got him! Now try to hold him still - you gotta wear him down. When he's tired, you'll be able to put his sorry crater of a butt into the trap." Slimer is trapped. Peter Venkman "Yeah! Perfect! See? That's a big wow. That''ll teach that pitiful goop sack to slime Pete Venkman. And, by extension...you. Perhaps a place setting disturbed. Still pretty much ready. Full go for the Rodriguez blowout." John O'Keefe runs in. John O'Keefe "The Alhambra Ballroom! The Bar Mitzvah! What have you done? The guests are arriving in fifteen minutes!" Peter Venkman "What seems to be your problem? Thanks to me and my new exclusively assigned recruit here, the festivities can now proceed in an entirely ghost free environment, so you're welcome. Huh? And to the Rodriguez: L'chaim from the Ghostbusters!" They exit the ballroom and bump into Ray. Ray Stantz "Nice of you guys to join us. You grab the little spud?" Peter Venkman "Ray, we need to have a heart-yo-blob talk with this one or we are gonna have discipline issues when he's a teenager." Ray Stantz "Oh-oh! Heads up! Your initiation is over! Now give us a hand! We've got a couple of really persistent, troublesome spirits here!" Bellhop Ghosts attack. Ray Stantz "Nice streaming. You're getting the hang of it. Good trap work." Last one is caught. Ray Stantz "See? That wasn't such a chore now was it?" John O'Keefe "Who's going to pay for all this?!" Ray Stantz "No need to worry, sir. As you know, the Mayor rode to office on a strictly pro-Ghostbusters platform, and we now invoice the city directly for all captures and eliminations. An unhaunted New York is a tourist friendly New York." John O'Keefe "No... the damage!" Egon Spengler "The Mayor and city have taken out an extensive insurance policy as well so you're covered." Peter Venkman "Honestly, I'm sensing some hostility here. Perhaps we should just leave the ghosts here if that's what yo would prefer, sir." John O'Keefe "No... no. But please, be discreet." Ray Stantz "Discretion is our professional watch word." A ghost flies above them. Peter Venkman "Heads up! Ray Stantz "Whoa! Where did HE come from?!" Egon Spengler "I suppose we should go after him. Unless you want to discuss it first?" Ray Stantz "Cadet. Go with Dr. Spengler. Check out the angry fisherman." Go to stairs. Loading screen... Egon Spengler "This way. Looks like he's drifting upstairs." Egon stops Rookie. Looks up. Egon Spengler "Shh." Ghost throws out line and collapses part of stairs. Egon Spengler "Look out!" Egon is stuck on other side. Egon Spengler "Can't get across there! Move! Take the lead! Take this trap!" Rookie gets a reading but a huge tidal wave sweeps him off his feet. Ray Stantz on radio "Hey! Is there a bathtub overflowing up there?" Egon Spengler on radio "More specifically: a 7000-cubic meter bathtub filled with protonically charged seawater? And, um, sea cucumbers?" Pappy passes Rookie. Egon Spengler on radio "Ray, did you tell the recruit about semi-dimensional rift entities? This type of highly agitated environment is a likely manifestation point." Candelabrum's animate and attack the Rookie. Sargassi appears again. Rookie follows to an elevator room. The doors open and drain out the water. Rookie enters a restaurant named "Sargassi's" and Pappy Sargassi appears. The Ghostbusters arrive. Egon Spengler "Good work. Are you alright?" Ray Stantz "Nice going! You might really be the right person for this job." Peter Venkman "Yes, you have destroyed a significant section of a five-star New York hotel in just under three hours. Your mother and I are so proud. Aren't we, Egon?" Egon Spengler "He's got something! Let's track it down!" An explosion rocks the bar. A golem appears. Peter Venkman "Egon? Ray? This is something new for us, isn't it?" Ray Stantz "First one I've ever seen! It's some type of highly focused anthropomorphic animator, an entity which attracts familiar objects to itself so it can materially manifest its rage!" Egon Spengler "It's generating a field of attraction so strong that it's able to reassemble its component parts!" Ray Stantz "It's losing strength! Keep tearing it down! Wrangle that. Yank it out of there." Egon Spengler "Wrangle it!" Ray Stantz "Wrangle it away!" Sargassi reappears after golem is destroyed and they trap him. Peter Venkman "I thought I didn't like knives and forks flying at me. But, when knives and forks become a big angry giant, that's really me not liking it. A lot." Ray Stantz "Happens everyday, right?" 5. Cinematic Three (Between Level 2 and Level 3) ================================================ Ray Stantz "Anybody hear from Zeddemore?" There is a rumble. Winston Zeddemore on radio "Uh, guys? I'm right outside. And so is something else." Peter Venkman "Gosh we've missed you, partner. Glad you could make it. But first, how was Aida? Mhmm. Well, we had to make do with, uh, this new specimen here." Winston Zeddemore on radio "I've been trying to get here for over four hours, Peter! Traffic is a little blocked right now!" Ray Stantz "Wait...I know that thud..." Egon grabs the radio from Peter. Egon Spengler "Winston, what do you see out there?" Winston Zeddemore "It's big, it's clean and soft and white. And you aren't gonna like it." Ray Stantz "No... this is not possible. Not here. Not now. Not again!" It's the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man. The Ghostbusters exit the Sedgewick Hotel and see Stay Puft. Ray Stantz "Wasn't me this time, I swear it." 6. Level 3 Panic in Times Square Dialogue ========================================= Peter Venkman "Pull it together, Ray. What do we have that can stop that cheap confection?" Winston Zeddemore "Ray, weren't you gonna finish up the install of the Super Slammer today?" Peter Venkman "The Super Slammer? Sounds untested, tacky and exciting. I'm in. But will it work?" Egon Spengler "Against the minions of a god? That was never the intent, but in theory I suppose it could. But a Muon trap of this capacity has never been used, or even tried before." Peter Venkman "Uh-huh and why would that stop guys that don't know any better?" Winston Zeddemore "Yeah, man. What are we? The FDA?" Egon Spengler "We'll have to clear a path through this mess first. Get moving! His residue is animating!" Ray Stantz "Lordy help us! Stay Puft is somehow hatching these... mini minions from himself. Well, there's paranormal physiology for ya. Always something to make your stomach turn. Nettlesome little yarpers! ...and yet they look so darn tasty. Blast 'em." Winston Zeddemore "Hey, more trouble! Multiple class 5 FRV's! Inbound!" Egon Spengler "Ray, prepare the Muon trap." Ray Stantz "Switching on the Muon trap." Winston Zeddemore "Ah, yeah! My favorite song: 'Switched on Muon trap!' Oh yeah! I'm LIKING the Super Slammer!" Egon Spengler "Throw all the ghosts you capture at the Slammer. You can relinquish your handheld unit." Peter Venkman "I dreaded you when you were alive. You're worse!" Winston Zeddemore "Uh, Ray? Can you stop the car for a minute?" Egon Spengler "No. Not if we're going to catch up to our old friend." Peter Venkman "And whoa! Ohh! What, big soap shortage in the afterlife, guys?! Don't give them change! You're only encouraging them." Winston Zeddemore "Venkman, we need to have a talk about tolerance!" Egon Spengler "I'm detecting something...significant... ...behind us." Winston Zeddemore "What is that? Am I hearing wings?" Three gargoyle statues on the exterior of the Sedgewick Hotel animate and attack. Egon Spengler "Class six!...kinetic animators! Multiple contacts!" Winston Zeddemore "Grab him and slam him, noob!" Egon Spengler "Interesting. Ghosts and gargoyles." Ray Stantz "Hey! That was a game: 'Ghosts and Gargoyles', a game we played when I was in the Seminary." Peter Venkman "Ghosts and Gargoyles. What dink game didn't you play? Do you have your eight-sided dice with you? What a... what a... what's uh... what a... wh... what do we do?" Egon Spengler "It's not vaporizing fast enough. There's too much of it." Winston Zeddemore "Damn! We were starting to make good time, too." Ray Stantz "And I thought it couldn't become any harder to get around Manhattan. Any ideas?" Egon Spengler "Well, we're not getting through that way now!" Winston Zeddemore "Hey, cut through this alley. We might be able to head off Stay Puft." Ray Stantz "We need to find a way around this mess." Peter Venkman "See, it's either you or Egon, Ray or Winston." Winston Zeddemore "I've had just about enough of the Marshmallow Parade. Let's go see if we can find us a shortcut. You with me? Spooky and clothesline fresh. Are you kidding me? Haunted laundromat? That looks like our ticket. That tanker's leaking gas all over the place. That is a serious safety hazard, man." Egon Spengler on radio "I wanted to test these first, but since we're waiving that safety step today anyway, you should be aware that I modified the Neutrona Wand which normally releases the particle stream." Winston Zeddemore "Wow! It's like Christmas came early!" Ray Stantz on radio "Earlier than what? They started Christmas before Halloween this year! Santa came to my house dressed as Dracula!" Winston Zeddemore "You guys might wanna stand back." Egon Spengler on radio "How far, exactly?" Winston Zeddemore "Back...WAY back." Tanker blows up. Egon Spengler on radio "Do I still have eyebrows?" Peter Venkman on radio "Same old, same old." Winston Zeddemore "I said, "way back."" Ray Stantz on radio "Nicely done. Great job, kid!" Peter Venkman "Yeah, combustible gasoline. It's the future. Egon, once again on the Super Slammer. I, uh...dog ate my homework." Egon Spengler "It's a prototype, Peter. Do you recall the memo from you about getting too many memos on prototypes?" Peter Venkman "Well, I did write that memo." Egon Spengler "We've mounted a high-expansion, rapid cycle multiple ghost absorber. It's faster and larger than our portable units." Peter Venkman "Am I in jeopardy? Is this a big enough stick to roast this guy? Okay, okay!" Egon Spengler "Potentially. But our exposure to interdimensional deities has been only marginal to date, so it would be wise to anticipate some error." Winston Zeddemore "Somebody needs a Ghostbuster." Egon Spengler "Yahh!" Peter Venkman "You know for a big guy, he fights awfully sneaky. You should tie a bell around his neck." Ray Stantz on radio "'Hindenburg The Opera'? Wasn't that show shut down when the stage caught fire and killed the cast?" Peter Venkman "I read the reviews...Oh the humanity! I had to say that." Winston Zeddemore "That's right. Ruthless producers. They just reopened it last week. It's cracking. There must be something really bad about this place." Egon Spengler "Grab a full scan." Ray Stantz on radio "Good idea. We should probably have a look around." Winston Zeddemore "Guess that means we're not alone here." Ray Stantz "Yep. These are unusual flux patterns. Whoa, wait! Don't touch that! That's what I thought. Black slime. Black slime is a hazardous form of ectoplasmic residue. Toxic to both body and soul. Very dangerous. Egon and I haven't developed clothes and boots sufficient enough to insulate against the negative psychokinetic effects of this stuff yet, so be careful." Winston Zeddemore "In other words, the stains don't ever come out. Watch yourself!" Black slime portals form and ghosts manifest. Egon Spengler "Look out! The Fat Lady's singing!" Peter Venkman "She is so over." Ray Stantz on radio "Looks like an opera singer, and a hefty one at that. Peter, you better take her." Peter Venkman "What's that supposed to mean? I'm a chubby chaser? I take out one plump girl on a blind date, like her personality and you guys can't let it go." Winston Zeddemore "I don't have time for you right now, gargoyle!" Ray Stantz on radio "More of them!" Opera Diva ghosts, Gargoyles, and Hobo ghosts attack. Winston Zeddemore "We just did a service to humanity, kid. Hindenburg is a terrible show." Loading screen... Ray Stantz on radio "Times Square, post-urban renewal. All shiny and clean. I love it!" Peter Venkman "Say, is that him?" Egon Spengler "He's hard to miss." Peter Venkman "Egon, how close do we have to get the big trap to reel him in?" Egon Spengler "A lot closer than this." Peter Venkman "What's he up to now?" Ray Stantz "He's...looking for something." Egon Spengler "Is he looking for something or someone?" Ray looks concerned and sinks in his seat. Male reporter "If you can see behind me, the streets are in absolute chaos! Authorities are doing everything they can to quell the panic and maintain order. It is madness out here! The Stay Puft Marshmallow Man, star of the popular children's television show, is on a rampage! This is NOT the Stay Puft we've come to love! Fortunately, the Ghostbusters have arrived to put everything back to normal!" Egon Spengler on radio "It's damaged. I've got to fix it or we won't stand a chance." Ray Stantz on radio "We need to get from here to there... make sure the big boy doesn't find whatever he's looking for!" Egon Spengler on radio "Good strategy. It's dangerous, though...that's a lot of open ground to cover." Ray Stantz "Alright, sport. Looks like it's me and you. Let's go across Times Square and get into the building Stay Puft is so interested in. You guys keep him off us if you think you can!" Egon Spengler "He knows you're there, Ray! I don't think he likes it!" Ray Stantz "Yep. He spotted us. Keep moving! Keep away from those feet! He'll stomp you into jelly! Boson Darts! Nice Boson, that really dinged him! Great job! Now see if he wants...S'more...get it? I'm funny too ya know. Here he comes! Evasive maneuvers! Stick close to me and as far away from him as you can! Venkman! You gotta distract him! Venkman! Are you getting coffee?! Venkman's getting coffee! Boson Darts should do the trick. Stay on your toes! Follow me! Quick! Soften him up with your Boson Darts! Boy! He's really mad! There's our way in! Break for it! Stay on my six! It's okay! Ghostbusters! Just a level 5 thought-form Crossrip! The professionals are here! Everybody calmly exit the street! Make no sudden movements! What the...! Uh-oh! He didn't find what he was looking for on the bottom floors. Come on. We've got to get to the top floors!" Loading screen... Two men in elevator. Man "All full. Going up. He, uh, just passed gas. Catch the next one." Ray sticks his foot in. Ray Stantz "Relax, sir. We handle foul vapors all the time." Boss Mark ""Let's stay in for lunch", you said. "Why leave the building?", you said. "It'll be quiet", you said. You know you're fired?"" Man "You're right. I secretly knew our lives would be in danger and thought "Hey, I'll make sure I trap Mark with me inside an elevator!"." Ray Stantz "Excuse us. Stay with me, Hoss! I'm sure there's more fun up ahead. Aww. I missed him. Could be trouble. Gives you the creeps, huh?" Rookie and Ray enter drafting room and get some readings. Ray Stantz "Uh oh. No sudden movements! Okay...it sure got quiet all of a sudden. They're in the vents! They're in the vents! Don't let them circle behind you! Yuck! I'm covered in marshmallow minion goo! Stay Puft is working overtime generating these little creeps. Liked crazed, hormonal teenagers on a post-Final-exam bender. Good shooting...Ahh!!!" Marshmallow Minions burst through the double door. Voice of a Woman "Aaaaah! Ray Stantz "Ready to be a hero? Venkman, come in please. It's pandemonium up here - chunks of the building missing everywhere. You are required at this site now!" Stay Puft's head comes into view. Peter Venkman on radio "I'm so happy to be in demand but these sugerballs have got me nailed down. I can't get past 'em. They're disgusting! And they're unhealthy!" Ray Stantz "Uh, did I mention there's a spectacularly beautiful lady in distress?" Peter Venkman on radio "I'll be right there." Ray Stantz "Alright! Show time!" Voice of a Woman "Aaaaah! No! Somebody help me!" Ray Stantz "Easy now, Miss. Just relax. No sudden movements. You're perfectly safe now." Stay Puft reaches in with his left hand. Ray Stantz "Sudden movements! Sudden movements! Wow! Check it out, kid! What a view, huh?! Manhattan! I love it!! Scooter? We need to go, let's roll." Ray and Rookie reach Peter and the woman from the Sedgewick. "33" on wall. Peter Venkman "It's okay. Dr. Venkman has you. You're fine now." Ray Stantz "You didn't spill your coffee, did you Peter?" Peter Venkman "Ray, I got coffee for all of us. But the little monster spilled it. And what's the story with those things, anyway?" Woman "W...was that a Manifestation of Gozer?" Peter and Ray exchange looks. Peter Venkman "Uh. Yeah, probably. It just may be. Could be. Would you like to take the most direct route outta here or the scenic route? It's lady's choice." Woman "There's a stairwell over here. Let's go!" Peter Venkman "Whew! Yeah, grace under pressure. I appreciate that in a lady." Ray Stantz "Okay, slugger. Let's you and me do this quick and quiet. Before tubby soft squeeze out there figures out what we're up to." Rumble. Peter Venkman "I think tubby soft squeeze has dog ears, Ray!" Ray Stantz "We go up then. To the roof!" Stay Puft punches wall near 34th floor. Woman "Aaaah!" Peter Venkman "Well, hello there." Ray Stantz "Stay Puft spotted us! Move! Move! Not much longer, cadet! That way!" Peter Venkman "Well, that's some relief." Woman "Come on! Let's go! Stay back! Great job! Oh no!" Egon Spengler on radio "I don't mean to alarm you, but we have lost sight of Stay Puft." Ray Stantz "Strong signal! Get its attention! That's how you do it! Great job, you guys! Ha! Free s'mores for everybody, from 54th Street to 5th Avenue! Happy Thanksgiving!" Loading screen... Peter Venkman "There he goes! The big evil sailor all the way to the ...ohhh! Not quite! Didn't make it! Hey, Ray. Say three guys the size of your finger knocked you off the side of a thirty story building and you had to climb all the way back up to tear 'em apart. H...how mad would you be at those three little dinky types?" Ray Stantz "I'd go with mighty pissed!" Peter Venkman "Uh huh. Okay, and throw in a sugar high, too." Woman "That giant blue and white toy... man...thing...or whatever... is still coming! It's climbing the building!" Peter Venkman "I'm impressed with his agility, considering his complete lack of bones." Egon Spengler on radio "Good news. We've got the Super Slammer back on pulse and Ecto-1 is rolling. We're repositioning now. Can you hold the Stay Puft there for a few minutes?" Ray Stantz "If by 'few' you mean less than one, then sure, we can do that." Rookie falls over. Peter Venkman "Hey, did somebody tell you it was break time?" Ray Stantz "No sweat, kid! We've got you!" Peter Venkman "Well, as long as you're down there, would you see if you can knock off Mr. Sweetness?" Ray Stantz "All right there, sunshine. Are you okay? You're all strapped in, we've got a good tight grip on your belt! Here he comes! The Big Daddy manifestation himself! A raging blob of densely packed marshmallow! Woah boy! Melt him, chief! Give him full stream." Egon Spengler on radio "He's right, rookie. Your health insurance doesn't begin for another 89 days." Ray Stantz "More of those minis. How many can he generate?" Peter Venkman "From two hundred thousand square feet of solid marshmallow? Mm hmm. Probably sixty." Ray Stantz "Boson Darts should do the trick." Peter Venkman "Is that his upset look? What do you think, Ray?" Ray Stantz "Soften him up with your Boson Darts! You've got him on the ropes, whapster! Land the last one so we can go home!" Stay Puft blows up. Peter Venkman "You've killed my dessert!" Ray Stantz "Scoreboard reads: Ghostbusters, two! Gozer the Gozerian, zero! Lookin' like a real big leaguer out there, champ!" Egon Spengler on radio "Ray, Peter. We're in position, the trap is set. We are prepared to capture Stay Puft. Where is he?" Peter Venkman "He's that white puddle you're driving through." Ray Stantz "Timing's off by just a hair, Egon. But we're glad the trap is working again." 7. Cinematic Four (Between Level 3 and Level 4) =============================================== Woman "I guess I owe you guys my life." Egon Spengler "She's clean." Ray Stantz "How do you feel?" Woman "Pretty good, all extremely weird things considered." Peter Venkman "So far, just another screwed up day at the office. You know, I never forget a face attached to all the rest of that. I think we met earlier at the Sedgewick Hotel. You gave me the sideshow chickendrop." Ilyssa Selwyn "My name's Ilyssa. Dr. Ilyssa Selwyn. And..." Peter Venkman "I am DR. Peter Venkman. And that's uh Egon, Ray, Winston and uh you met him. Uh huh. The Ghostbusters." Egon Spengler "Have you ever been involved in this type of quantum temporal rift event before?" Ilyssa Selwyn "A quantum what?" Ray Stantz "It's called 'arcing'; a large pulse of psychic energy." Ilyssa Selwyn "Actually, yes. I was at the museum..a pulse of blue light surged through the building...and then I was standing outside a room on the thirteenth-floor of an old hotel." Winston Zeddemore "The Sedgewick." Ray Stantz "The Sedgewick doesn't have a thirteenth-floor." Ilyssa Selwyn "It was pulling me, like a magnet. I felt as though I was in a deep dream. I came to and ran over here." Ray Stantz "Here?" Ilyssa Selwyn "It's a temporary office while I'm in town. I came to do research after I...woke up." Egon Spengler "We'd like you to come to our lab so we can run some brief tests and ask you more questions." Peter Venkman "Here's an easy one: would you like to go out for Thai, Mexican, Japanese?" Ilyssa Selwyn "Wow, Dr. Venkman. That time you almost went 45 seconds without saying something abrasive. Wanna try for a whole minute next time?" Peter Venkman "A doctor. And a fiery one too! Charming. So charming." Later, at the Firehouse... Winston Zeddemore "So, you know so much about Gozer because...?" Ilyssa Selwyn "Because I'm a specialist in ancient Mesopotamian cultures and architecture. Sumerian, primarily. Gozerian, more specifically. I'm here as a guest curator for the Gozerian exhibit that's opening tomorrow at the Natural History Museum." Egon Spengler "You are aware that we also have some...history with Gozer." Ilyssa Selwyn "Yes, of course." Ray Stantz "Gozer was a bush-leaguer before he met us. A strictly farm-team deity! We put him on the map!" Peter Venkman "But our getting stiffed on invites to opening night... just an over sight, right?" Ilyssa Selwyn "I don't have anything to do with that." Walter Peck "That, gentlemen, was all me! And I can assure you, it was not an oversight!" Janine Melnitz "Oh, by the way, you have visitors." Peter Venkman "Thank, Janine. You're a first class lookout. Walter Peck, I did not recognize you without the Mayor's backside attached to your nose." Mayor Mulligan "Okay...everybody put 'em back in their skivvies! (laughs) Apologies, uh, Dr. Selwyn. Are you alright?" Ilyssa Selwyn "I think so, but...I'm worried about the exhibit." Mayor Mulligan "Are you kidding?! You can't buy publicity like this! The guest curator of the Gozer Exhibit...the expert Peck recommended, is attacked the night before the opening by Gozer himself?! Please...tell me that was Gozer!" Egon Spengler "Gozer manifested in a familiar form; one he had used before: The Stay Puft Marshmallow Man. But this event was weaker than his first encounter with us." Mayor Mulligan "Ha! That's all I need. Thanks!" Peter Venkman "Come on, Jock, what's the idea bringing...(coughs)...preck around here? Oh, have I coughed at the wrong time?" Mayor Mulligan "Listen. Here's the deal. You and Peck and all you guys are going to work together." Peter Venkman and Walter Peck "What?!" Ray Stantz "No way, no how..." Egon Spengler "Impossible." Mayor Mulligan "Look. This city has given you at least a dozen contracts for the jails, courthouses and wharves. You guys want to grow your business. Get some county and state work too. I'm all for it. You've been big supporters, and great for my campaign." Ray Stantz "Well some have said our endorsement is what got you elected." Mayor Mulligan "But not out loud. Anyway, after all the damage you've been causing lately, the city council wants you under close supervision for a period of no less than six months!" Peter Venkman "We file reports on time. There's no need for extra supervision." Mayor Mulligan "Ha, ha, ha! Funny guy, Venkman! You've always been my favorite. Well, that's where your old friend Peck comes in. He's annoying, a stickler for the rules. In other words, the prefect "Peck" for the job. He's our new head of P-COC!" Ray Stantz "P-COC?" Walter Peck "P-C-O-C: Paranormal Contracts Oversight Commission. And my first official act is going to be suspending you clown's operating license." Mayor Mulligan "Listen up, Peck. Launch your investigation if you have to but for now, just keep them under control and my office in the loop. But remember, if the Ghostbusters cease to exist, so does your job. So you need each other. Beautiful, in an ironic symmetrical kind of way, isn't it?" Peter Venkman "Hey, Mulligan. Come on..." Mayor Mulligan "It's Mayor Mulligan to you, Venkman. So, we have an understanding? This kind of protects us all. You want more government business, I want to keep my approval rating, and Peck wants his little fiefdom. You play by the rules. Easy, we all get what we want and the city council gets what they need. Okay, big night tomorrow, Ilyssa! Get some rest!" Mayor Mulligan saunters out of the room. Ray Stantz "So! Now that we're all friends, can we get invites to the Museum opening?" Walter Peck "Not likely. But I'll be seeing you soon. You can count on that." The Ghostbusters and Selwyn are on the main floor by Ecto 1-b. Peter Venkman "Doesn't Peck look exactly like the kind of guy who would "accidentally" walk into the stream of a boson collider?" Rookie goes to Ecto 1-b. Egon Spengler "Ray and I have been talking...
...and we think we should have a look at the museum. Whatever happened tonight, it started there." Peter Venkman "Okay, I'll take one for the team and stay with Ilyssa. You guys go with Winston and the Recruit. I'll be her personal protection." Winston Zeddemore "What about Peck? He's supposed to be informed of everything we do." Ray Stantz "What he doesn't know can't hurt us." Ecto 1-b is on route when Janine comes on radio Janine Melnitz "Hey Guys, you need to make a detour. Something big is going down. It's on 1010 WINS now." Ray Stantz "Tune it in." Radio announcer "...and another ghostly sighting has staff at the New York Public Library scrambling for answers." Egon Spengler "The Gray Lady." Ray Stantz "Let's get her for real this time ...go!" Winston Zeddemore "Well, what about the Museum?" Ray Stantz "It's been there for a hundred and four years. Where's it gonna go today?" Winston Zeddemore "Uh, this thing you guys have for the Gray Lady borders on the weird. You know that, right?" Ray Stantz "She made us look like schmucks. Not this time." Janine Melnitz via radio "Oh, and another thing, Peck called and says that I'm required to tell him where you are and what you are up to." Egon Spengler "Tell him he can meet us at the Museum. We'll be there... eventually." 8. Level 4 Checking Out the Library Dialogue ============================================ Egon Spengler "Big crowd, Venkman would love this." Ray Stantz "Captain McMahon from the 12th says there was a massive disturbance. Real fireworks show." Winston Zeddemore "Not much going on now." Egon Spengler "Maybe. But didn't there used to be two lions out here?" Ray Stantz "Check for valences." Egon Spengler "Hmm...interesting. Ray, take a look at this." Ray Stantz "Wow! Big spikes! Hey, cadet. You need to see this." The lion statue explodes, revealing a ghost. Egon Spengler "Stay back!" Winston Zeddemore "Look out! There they go!" Ray Stantz "Whoa! Double full torso animators! C'mon! After them!" Winston Zeddemore "You heard Stantz! Let's move." Pursue ghosts into the Library. Egon Spengler "There they are!" Ray Stantz "Couple of Class-five Animators. Never seen them in tandem like that! They're really agitated!" Winston Zeddemore "Switching on the packs." Ray Stantz "All right...take it easy, now." Winston Zeddemore "Hey! He said 'take it easy!" That's not 'easy' Missed! Damn!" Ray Stantz "Sorry, Z." Winston Zeddemore "How about a little warning next time, fellas!?" Egon Spengler "That one's a beast, Ray. Let's chase him down. Winston, check that next doorway. See if he has any friends." Winston Zeddemore "Leave a haunted room? I got no problem with that." Ray Stantz "Hey, cadet. To use the Shock Blaster, it's best to get up fairly close. Its effect is powerful, but dissipate quickly over distance." Egon Spengler "And please be careful, it's a prototype. We're trusting you with it." Ray Stantz "The Stasis Stream will temporarily slow down paranormal entities. If you train the stream on the target long enough, you can actually stop it entirely! This is how you use it." Winston Zeddemore "Cool! A freeze ray!" Ray Stantz "A stasis stream. This has nothing to do with cold. But the effect is similar." Winston Zeddemore "When do you have the time to work on all this stuff, Egon?" Egon Spengler "I've been conducting an experiment in which I sleep an average fourteen minutes a day. Leaves me a lot of time to work." Ray Stantz "Great! Ready to roll. Hey, Hoss. You think you can handle that little fella yourself? We'll meet you back here." Ray Stantz on Rookie's radio "Stay alert. Keep your PKE Meter up. Animators can hide in anything. Hey! Ugly just shot around that corner! Look! It's the cadet!" Egon Spengler "Strong emanations. No direct source, though." Ray Stantz "We followed out guy in here and it gave us the slip." Egon Spengler "Detecting a strong anomaly, here..." Chairs and desks erupt into the air in reading room. Ray Stantz "Uh-oh. Here comes something big!" Egon Spengler "Now that is a fine example of a Level 6 Bi-Dimensional Attractor" Ray Stantz "Egon! Did I mention what a good idea you had to come up on the balcony? Slow it down!" Egon Spengler "Slow it down somehow!" Ray Stantz "It's losing strength! Keep tearing it down!" Egon Spengler "All of its power is emitting from a single focal object!" Ray Stantz "You got it! Fantastic! Man. How much PK energy must it take to collect and animate an entity like that?" Egon Spengler "A lot. A lot of very angry energy." Ray Stantz "How easy was that?" Egon Spengler "Wait! Not so fast, I'm getting some big fluxes here." Ray Stantz "I think it's her. Yes, yes, it is her! Eleanor Twitty, The Librarian!" Egon Spengler "Look! There she is! Meet us at the stairway door!" Ray kicks door open for Rookie. Ray Stantz "She went down that way!" Egon Spengler on radio "Winston, check upstairs to see if the other Phantom doubled back." Winston Zeddemore "Roger." Ray Stantz "She shushed us again. That witch!" Egon Spengler "PKE's out. And try to be quiet." Ray Stantz "Oh, wow! A full stabilizing levitation! I'd say we're close to something." Egon Spengler "Ray..." Ray Stantz "You got something?" Egon Spengler "I've got something. Right...here." Ray Stantz "Kid, check that out. Yaahhh!" The Librarian appears. Ray Stantz "Ooooh! She keeps shushing us! That's her! The Gray Lady! She's the first ghost we ever hunted. Man, I wish Venkman was here." Egon Spengler "I'm pretty sure Venkman doesn't." Ray Stantz "Easy now...she's real skittish." Egon Spengler "Damn! Lost it!" Ray Stantz "Let's go! We'll cut her off!" Egon Spengler "These readings are off the charts! Now I'll have to make new charts." Ray Stantz "Wow! Now listen. This place is reading like a psychic pressure cooker. Prime your thrower. Everybody stick close together." Egon Spengler "Here! This way! Quick!" Ray Stantz "What was that? Okay, so much for 'stick together' - new plan is 'fan out.'" Egon Spengler "Flexible approach, Ray." Ray Stantz "There are two hostile spirits roaming around in here." Egon Spengler "Two that we know about." Ray Stantz "Now I got ya. What?! Oh no! Kid! Look out! It's coming your way!" Crusto turns corner and goes through wall. Egon Spengler "Temperature's dropping. Event imminent! Brace yourselves!" Winston Zeddemore on radio "Guys, I'm in the periodical archives looking at a stack of old newspaper clippings... All about some nut named Edmund Hoover, AKA, 'The Collector.'" Egon Spengler "Hmm...go on." Winston Zeddemore "This dude has a history you should know about. He was a rare book collector who seduced Eleanor Twitty, the head librarian of this place." Ray Stantz "The Gray Lady?!" Egon Spengler "That would be my guess." Rookie encounters Paper Construct then Crusto in hallway. Winston Zeddemore "Okay, guys, it's dead up here. The good kind, I mean. You all cool?" Egon Spengler "We may need to get back to you on that." Ray Stantz "Hey, Kid. What's your 20? I'm in some kind of a dark tunnel, moving fast...towards a bright light. Oof! Class I Swarmers! Pesky but combustable!" Ray and Rookie take on Book Bats. Ray Stantz "Now where's that Class Five Animator? I tracked the slug here! There's the Big Fish! See what he did?! Give him a new home - in our containment facility! Throw your trap, Rook! Look! Did you see that? More than I expected!" Ray and Rookie face off against Cruster and Crusto. One is trapped. Ray Stantz "How easy was that?" Second is trapped. Ray Stantz "Phew. Good work. That took some doin'." Egon Spengler on radio "Congratulations, Ray, uh... but I'm near Special Collections. Someone you've been wanting to meet again is here." Ray Stantz "We're on our way! Keep an eye on the twitchy ones; they'll really crease ya if you aren't careful. You alright? Watch it!" Paper Constructs attack Ray and Rookie. Ray Stantz "Mind the paper cuts!" Rookie and Ray take out last of Paper Constructs Ray Stantz "Looks like the Gray Lady makes her own reinforcements. Keep your eyes open, team. She's upping the ante." Winston Zeddemore on radio "Thanks for the warning, Ray. But I have no idea what you're talking about." Egon Spengler on radio "You may wanna just take our word for it." Ray Stantz "There she is...quiet, now...let's get a solid scan..." Egon Spengler on radio "I missed that, Ray! Please repeat!" The Librarian shushes them and flies away. Ray Stantz "Enough with the shushing! Well, at least we're getting closer." Egon Spengler on radio "Could not hear a word of that, Ray!...Ray?!" Book Bats attack. "THAT'S MY BOOKS!" Ray Stantz "Gives you the creeps, huh? Nicely done, cadet. Come on, kid. We need to get out of here." Loading screen... Ray Stantz on radio "Ah Winston, where the heck are you?" Winston Zeddemore "In the periodical section checking the box score from the Knicks game last night. Why?" Ray Stantz on radio "Tell us more about this "Collector", Winston." Winston Zeddemore "Says here that this Collector used the Gray Lady to get to the rare books in her care - specifically a book called, get this, the Gozerian Codex." Ray Stantz on radio "Great!" Winston Zeddemore "Yeah. And when she found out what he was up to, she dumped him." Egon Spengler on radio "Smart lady." Winston Zeddemore "Not really. Evidently he murdered her for it." Ray Stantz on radio "Uh-oh." Winston Zeddemore "The Gray Lady was his first victim, but he killed a bunch more." Ray Stantz on radio "And let me guess, he collected their bodies, just like he collected books?" Winston Zeddemore "Bingo. Ray, you get to buy me dinner. And here's the last on The Collector. Seconds before he was hanged, he said he would return as Azetlor, some sort of god, to keep watch over the library and every rare book in its collection." Ray Stantz on radio "Sounds like quite the bookworm." Winston Zeddemore "Sounds like the kind we run into all the time." Ray and Rookie arrive at Juvenile Curriculum. They hear a children laugh. Ray Stantz "Okay. I'm not saying that's a bad sign: but it sure isn't a good one. That'll only hurt for a minute." They enter Juvenile Curriculum. Ray Stantz "You hear that? It's around here someplace. Uh-huh, somebody's in here. Come out, come out, wherever you are. Oh boy, we're not alone." Doll falls off chair. Door slams on Ray. Ray Stantz "Ugh, I gotta be more careful! You alright? It's...children! What are they saying?" Rookie takes readings off Austin Cline's Puppet Theatre. Ray Stantz "I think they're trying to tell us something. What else did Hoover collect?" They head down stairwell. Child says "Bye." Ray Stantz "You got that right, scooter. Here's the place. Special Collections. These rooms are packed with rare & valuable volumes! Okay, she's in here with Egon. No noise!" Egon Spengler "Shh...almost..." Ray Stantz "Oh, boy." Egon Spengler "Looks like they're throwing the whole science fiction section at us." Ray Stantz "Can't blast through the shields!!" Egon Spengler "Their shields! Use the Capture Stream on their shields!" Ray Stantz "Wrangle their shields! Remember how you were saying print was dead?" Egon Spengler "I wish." Ray Stantz "Now where'd she go?" Egon Spengler "Valences up. She definitely left a trace somewhere... Big spike! Riiiiiight...here!" Ray Stantz "Yeah! Check this out! I feel a breeze... oh, cool! Secret passages! These are great! I didn't even know this area existed." Egon Spengler "Looks like the janitors didn't, either. For the last eighty years, anyway." What ARE those? I don't recognize them from Tobin's." Ray Stantz "No, they're in the Revised Etheary Catalog. I think the Gray Lady is constructing them from the books and minor spirits here. She may be more powerful than we thought. Take a look at this place! I could spend a month taking inventory of these books!" Egon Spengler "Let's be careful what we wish for down here, Ray." Ray Stantz "Wow! Dig THAT!" Egon Spengler "Ray, I'm not entirely convinced this is the best course of action." Ray Stantz "Hey! I'll bet this is a trap!" Egon Spengler "Welcome back, Ray." Book Bats manifest. Ray Stantz "Uh-oh! They've got friends!" Egon Spengler "It's moving again!" Ray Stantz "Over to the left! Pulled the same trick, twice!" Egon Spengler "I'm having serious doubts about the structural integrity of this sub-basement." Ray Stantz "Moving!" Egon Spengler "I'm telling you this sub-structure is unstable! The ceiling could come down on top of us!" Ray Stantz "Our lobe-probe experiment is working! You're clairvoyant!" Egon Spengler "No, I saw the support columns buckle." Trio traps a Cruster. Ray Stantz "Over there. Oh, boy. Creepy." Egon Spengler "Those beams are wedged solid." Ray Stantz "Good place for the capture stream." Egon Spengler "Alright, wrangle that out of the way!" Ray Stantz "That's excellent! Wonder what's done there?" Egon Spengler "Something big. And, more than likely, terrifying." Ray Stantz "It's really dark down there!" Egon Spengler "Damp, too. Wonderful. Hope you don't have any open cuts. I'm thinking of flesh eating bacteria." Ray Stantz "That's an electric lock on the door." Egon Spengler "See if you can find the power." Ray Stantz "Great! The Recruit found it! Uh, I wonder if it's a good idea to be standing in a foot and a half of water..." Egon Spengler "That didn't last long." Book Golem manifests. Egon Spengler "I can't say I'm a big fan of the Level 6 Bi-Dimensional Attractor." Ray Stantz "I'm with you on that. We're lucky there were only some old books for it to manifest with. Um..." Egon Spengler "This is cheery. Nice place. Nothing bad could ever happen in here." The Librarian appears over a grate. Ray Stantz "There she is! Flank her! She's got nowhere to run!" The Librarian goes down. Ray Stantz "Except through the grate." Egon Spengler "I'm not clear on how the flanking was supposed to work." Two Coal Golems manifest. Ray Stantz "Oh boy. Burning coal. Two of them this time!" Egon Spengler "Yeah nice Ray! Tell us again how lucky we are?" Ray Stantz "Phew. We've got to bag the Gray Lady before this gets really dangerous." Egon Spengler "We may have missed that window, Ray." Ray Stantz "Well, we can't follow her through that grate. Is there another way? Whatcha find there, Youngblood? Good work! Spengler, the kid found the exit." Black slime oozes out of the new exit. Egon Spengler "I added something new to the pack. This is the PDS: Plasm Distribution System. Basically, it's slime blower, Mark II, heavily modified from the earlier version. Your plasm banks are now integrated into the Proton pack. It uses a base culture of ectoplasm that can impair entities, cause caustic Black Slime to go inert, and reveal otherwise invisible ethereal structures that reside on this plane." Ray Stantz "To use the Slime Blower, just point and squirt. It'll help neutralize any active patches of Black Slime. It'll close any portals they're opening, too. See! Neutronized Slime." Egon Spengler "Our own private shortcut to hell. That's convenient." Loading Screen. Rookie, Ray, and Egon watch The Librarian and the Gozerian Codex. Ray Stantz "Eerie place. I wonder if this is where the Collector killed The Librarian?" Egon Spengler "I think that would be a safe assumption. That book she's reading is emitting massive energy." Ray Stantz "Ah, that's your cue, Killer. Go get 'em." Egon Spengler "She took that pretty well; better than I expected." Ray Stantz "It makes perfect sense if her residual spirit energy is tied to the book. The Gozerian Codex, right? Now that we have it, her echo must have been released. She's gone. I think we helped her cross over." Egon Spengler "And she just crossed right back." Ray Stantz "Oh, no." Egon Spengler "The book stands are generating her shield." Ray Stantz "Buddy, the podiums - soak 'em! Soak 'em!" Egon Spengler "That's it! She can't regenerate the cage! Keep hitting the book stands!" Ray Stantz "She is shielding herself with the Codices, go after those first!" After taking out last stand. Ray Stantz "That does it! Now let's attack the Librarian straight on!" Blast at the Librarian as she reappears throughout room Ray Stantz "Throw a capture stream on her!" Egon Spengler "That's good! Throw out the trap!" They trap her. Ray Stantz "Weird. That wasn't as tough as it should have been." Egon Spengler "I was just thinking of the same thing." Ray Stantz "It was almost too easy... like she wants us to have the Codex..." Egon Spengler "Yes, like she wanted us to blast this room apart." Ray Stantz "But, why?" A portal appears. Ray Stantz "Cross-dimensional portal. From the fifth to the fourth. A whole world of ghosts. Something I've dreamnt about since College. It's all in the Monarchia Daemonum. Fantastic! Ghostworld." Egon Spengler "I wouldn't get too excited, Ray. I have a feeling she did it so we could meet an old friend of hers." Ray Stantz "Well, if we're going..." Egon Spengler "Not much choice, is there? It's the only way out. You. Take the lead. Don't worry, we do this all the time." Ray Stantz "OH, NO. LOOK OUT!" Egon Spengler "Hm. So this is what the Public Library looks like on the far side of a cross-dimensional portal." Ray Stantz "It's one of infinite potential configurations. You know ...theoretically." Egon Spengler "Yes, well this looks like the Gozerian configuration." Ray Stantz "Watch out! Black slime! Come one! Let's go! Alright, keep your head down and keep hitting these portals! One of them has gotta lead out!" Ray and Egon go through a portal but the Rookie is halted by a Book Golem. Ray Stantz "The natives are restless." Egon Spengler "Well, they're certainly aware of out presence." Ray falls out of a portal. Ray Stantz "Aaaaah! Well that was embarrassing. Looks like a good place for Slime Tether. To stretch a Slime Tether, point and launch the first anchor, then point and shoot the second. The launched slime tether will then contract. The more tethers you attach to a point, the stronger the resulting reaction. Since their ectoplasmic charge has a short-life, tethers will grow brittle over time and then break. Blast an existing tether with any other equipment type to destroy it. Like a pro! Huh. Wouldya look at that? Heck, we should be able to put that back into place. Ghostworld or no, the principle of leverage should still work the same anywhere! Come on, John Henry. Put your back into it. Ah, yeah! you're on fire, cadet!" Egon Spengler on radio "Ray, it occurs to me that these events are interrelated." Ray Stantz "The Gozerian Exhibit, the huge energy pulse, the Sedgewick Hotel, the return of Stay Puft... yeah..." Egon Spengler "Yes, even this. All pointing back to a single point of origin." Ray Stantz "Ilyssa?" Egon Spengler on radio "Ilyssa." Ray Stantz "You think she's a factor in this?" Egon Spengler on radio "Maybe not intentionally, but almost definitely." Ray goes through a portal. Ray Stantz on radio "Rookie? Are you still there? Watch out! The mirrors aren't what they seem..." Rookie encounters a Cultist. Ray Stantz on radio "Okay, I've tried this one twice already. So it's gotta be another one." Egon Spengler on radio "This dimension is extremely volatile. It seems to be tearing itself apart." Ray Stantz on radio "We need to get out of here." Egon Spengler on radio "Oh no." Ray Stantz on radio "Did you see something scary, Egon?" Egon Spengler on radio "Stairs. Lots of stairs. The pattern is starting to make sense. I think I'm close to finding the exit." Ray Stantz on radio "Oh-oh! I've got bogeys. Heads up, boys - wherever you are. Huh. Totally inverted." Egon Spengler on radio "Okay, I'm through!" Ray Stantz on radio "Send a signal we can track you with." Egon Spengler on radio "I'll try but it might not work! The last portal I entered was at the top of a long flight of steps." Ray Stantz on radio "Made it out, too. Hey, champ, we won't leave until you find us." Egon Spengler on radio "Look for the long staircase. The exit portal is at the very top." Ray Stantz on radio "Keep movin, Sport. We sure don't wanna be trapped in here." Egon Spengler on radio "Recruit, I had some trouble getting to the portal. Use the Slime Tether to bring the portal to you." Azetlor "Nowumba AZETLOR machachan!" Egon Spengler on radio "Did you hear that?" Ray Stantz on radio "Wonder if that's the Collector we're looking for?" Egon Spengler on radio "I think he goes by 'Azetlor' now." Ray Stantz on radio "Hey, cadet! are your okay? Sounds like it's getting closer!" Egon Spengler on radio "Can you get to that portal at the top of the stairs?" Rookie gets to the exit portal. Ray Stantz "I do like what they've done with the place here - but I hoped that portal would have taken us back to the Library." Egon Spengler "Actually, we are back in the Public Library. The dimensional membrane must be extremely thin here." Ray Stantz "Someone's holding us here. The Collector." Egon Spengler "Yes, Azetlor wants to add to his collection. And he's probably not too happy about us taking the Gozerian Codex with us." Ray Stantz "Oh yeah? What can a twisted little bookworm do to scare us?" Egon Spengler "He murdered Eleanor Twitty for it when he was alive. And a dozen others just to cover it up." Ray Stantz "Hey, Collector! We're taking your book! Whaddya think about THAT?! Uh, he's right behind me, isn't he?" Egon Spengler "Yes, I think you got his attention, Ray." Ray Stantz "Ho boy. He's resisting my proton stream!" Egon Spengler "Look! His face is protected by Black Slime!" Ray Stantz "That must be the key! Hey, Junior, switch out your nozzle and hose him down!" Egon Spengler "Neutronize the Black Slime on his mask!" Ray Stantz "We need to clear that slime off his mask! Use the slime blower, Rook! It's clear!" Egon Spengler "Rip his mask off, it looks vulnerable!" Ray Stantz "Use the capture stream to rip off his mask! Yeah, that did it!" Egon Spengler "Oh no, I think we just exposed his angry side." Ray Stantz "Bring him down all the way. Keep shooting him in the eye if you can, he's got nothing to resist the proton stream!" Egon Spengler "Hit him in the eye, we've almost got him!" Ray Stantz "He's out of control! Blast him in the eye, Rook, I think it's working!" Egon Spengler "Don't question it, Rook! Just blast the glowy part!" Ray Stantz "Collect some of this, Jerk!" Egon Spengler "Hit the eye with everything you've got! Now! Aim high! Hit the eye with everything you've got! Hit him in the eye, we've almost got him!" Azetlor implodes. Ray Stantz "There it goes! Bye, Azetlor!" Egon Spengler "We need to get out of here!" Ray Stantz "There's a new portal back here! C'mon rook that's gotta be they way out." Loading screen... Winston is in the reading room when a portal opens up. Winston Zeddemore "Where the hell were you guys?! I've been runnin' all over this library, calling you, looking for you ...nothing!" Egon Spengler "We passed through a cross-dimensional portal into an alternate version of the New York Public Library, and fought a forty foot monster made out of priceless antiques to steal an ancient magical book." Winston Zeddemore "Oh...well...that would explain it, then. Next time leave a note." Egon takes some readings. Egon Spengler "Ray, does this mean anything to you?" A mandala map. Ray Stantz "Nope, it wasn't here the first time we came through." Winston Zeddemore "What is it?" Egon Spengler "Not entirely sure. But whatever it is, I think we just turned it off." Ray Stantz "You thinking what I'm thinking?" Winston Zeddemore "Thin crust New York style with no visible anchovies?" Winston holds up his hand for a high five but is left hanging. Ray Stantz "Maybe later. Right now I need to go back to the lab and take a look at this Codex." The Rookie holds up his hand for a high five from Winston. He is left hanging. Egon Spengler "And analyze the data we've collected. It could help us when we go to the museum." Winston Zeddemore "Slice to go on the way? Rookie's treat?" Ray Stantz "And we need to know what this is." Winston Zeddemore "I'll call for a delivery. Again." 9. Cinematic Five (Between Level 4 and Level 5) =============================================== Firehouse. Egon and Ray are at a table on second floor. Ilyssa walks over and joins them. Ray Stantz "Well, it's a great read. But nothing about that." Ilyssa Selwyn "I know that symbol." Egon Spengler "How?" Ilyssa Selwyn "It shows up sometimes in Sumerian ritual magic. There's a statue on loan at the museum that features it." Ray Stantz "What does it represent?" Ilyssa Selwyn "Just a symbol: signifies a path to obtain great power. Most of my colleagues assume it's an old constellation." Winston Zeddemore "No constellation I ever saw. And I used to tell fortunes on Coney Island." Peter Venkman "Is that right. Did you wear a turban?" Winston Zeddemore "No, man. A red velvet cape with moons. It was plush." Ray Stantz "Get this. The Codex does indicate there is some kind of feeder system required to channel energy to a Destructor Form." Winston Zeddemore "A Destructor Form...like Stay Puft?" Egon Spengler "It's entirely possible that system and this pattern are connected." Ray Stantz "It's possible." Egon Spengler "Wait. You said the Gozerian statuary at the Museum is on loan. From whom?" Ilyssa Selwyn "Ivo Shandor, the architect. Well, the Shandor Foundation. They control Shandor's remaining estate and holdings. Ivo was a big collector of Gozerian artifacts." Winston Zeddemore "By "Ivo Shandor the Architect", you mean "Ivo Shandor the Genocidal Maniac." Right?" Ilyssa Selwyn "That's what I was researching when Gozer attacked me. Shandor's architecture firm was involved in a number of projects around town in the late 18-,early 1900s." Egon Spengler "Including Dana Barrett's old building on Central Park West." Peter Venkman "You mean the one with the extra dimensional antenna that drew Gozer to our world so he could attempt to destroy it? Had a nice view of the park, though." Ilyssa Selwyn "Yes, but he also did some renovations on existing buildings and a number of public works. There was controversy...because a lot of people thought the work was unnecessary." Winston Zeddemore "Let me guess. He did some renovations on the Public Library building on Fifth." Ilyssa Selwyn "Riiiight. And...The Museum of Natural History" Ray Stantz "Recent visitations, specific, localized paranormal activity, singing Vikings..." Egon Spengler "They're all connected to Shandor...and this pattern." Rookie goes to Ecto 1-b. Loading screen... Winston Zeddemore "We should warn the Mayor." Ray Stantz "I don't know, he's likely to just sick Peck on us even more." Egon Spengler "You should get a closer look at the Museum." Ilyssa Selwyn "Well, the Mayor's gonna be at the Museum for the exhibition opening gala tonight. It's where I need to be, too." Peter Venkman "Ilyssa, you sure make work fun for me. Is business casual okay? I don't have a tux." Ilyssa Selwyn "Are you kidding? He doesn't want you guys within three city blocks of the Museum tonight? He thinks you make his campaign contributors nervous. Besides, that Peck guy will be at the party, too." Ray Stantz "Okay, Egon'll stay here and finish analyzing the data from the library. The rest of us will go in by the service entrance of the museum and lay low. Peter can attend the party as Ilyssa's guest and stay in plain sight of Peck." Winston Zeddemore "And that frees us up to check out the rest of the building." Peter Venkman "I love this plan! It's just dull enough to work. Ill, I'm gonna bring you a corsage." 10. Level 5 Museum of (Super)Natural History Dialogue ===================================================== The loading dock. Ray Stantz "Yes, we just arrived at the loading dock. Keep Peck distracted. We're going to poke around." Peter Venkman on radio "Ok. I'll take one for the team." Ray Stantz "No sign of the curator. Ilyssa told me he'd meet us right here." Winston Zeddemore "Something wanted out of this box in a big way." Ray Stantz "Watch out. Black slime. Unchecked it can eventually open a full inter-dimensional portal, an open doorway... and anything that wants to can come through. If a full portal has been opened, it has to be sealed using your Slime Blower. That's the key reason we developed the tech. Door's sealed shut. Someone find the power." Winston Zeddemore "Good work, Eagle-Eye. Look at this. Someone's trailed packing material down the hall here." Ray Stantz "Packing material and slime." Winston Zeddemore "Was that a possessor?" Ray Stantz "Maybe. Looked like a Level 7 or above, too." Winston Zeddemore "Didn't we used to fight class two's and three's every now and then? What happened to them? They were easy." Ray Stantz "Ahh, the good old days. I'm more worried that she'll stir things up around here. I expect we'll see her again sooner than we want to. Hello? Who's in there?" Winston Zeddemore "Somebody that wants out, is who." Rookie shoots the crate. Ray Stantz "Oh, Dr. Rutherford. Uh, Z, meet the Assistant Curator of the Museum." Dr. Rutherford "Is that horrible, terrible thing gone?" Winston Zeddemore "Yeah, she's gone. You good?" Dr. Rutherford "I, uh, yes I suppose so. I'm a big fan. I even had you over for my daughter's birthday a couple years ago." Ray Stantz "Is that so? Well, I think we can get you a sticker or button or mug or T-shirt or something when we're done here." Dr. Rutherford "Oh, that would be wonderful. Follow me... we'll go through the restoration department." Rutherford hits the button for the service elevator. The possessor is inside. Dr. Rutherford "There it is again! Don't let it get me!" Ray Stantz "Don't you worry. She'll have to go through me first." The Possessor possesses Ray. Ray Stantz "Mwa ta natch calla worn ormon!!" Dr. Rutherford "Can you help him?" Winston Zeddemore "Hose him down, Youngblood!" They hose Ray and trap the ghost. Dr. Rutherford "Alright! You guys are really good!" Winston Zeddemore "Voila! That's a fusion-based exorcism in a nutshell. Cleaner than somebody's head spinning all around and barfing pea soup." Dr. Rutherford "Will be be okay?" Winston Zeddemore "How you doin', Ray?" Ray Stantz "Hazza buzza. Hazza buzza? Bozza wazza shum." Winston Zeddemore "Aw, he'll be fine in a second. After you." They get into the elevator. Ray Stantz "Oh no. If this place is possessed by, uh, possessors, we'd better get to Peter fast. Venkman! We found the curator! We're on our way to the Gozer exhibit now!" Dr. Rutherford "Oh, there's so much to show you. Where to start? Things have been very strange since they started setting up that exhibit." Peter is waiting outside the elevator door. Peter Venkman "Well, hello there." Winston Zeddemore "Dig it, Peter. Ray got possessed...again." Ray Stantz "Awww, Z!" Winston Zeddemore "'You'll have to go through me first': that's exactly what he said!" Peter Venkman "Just like a puppy...every day's the first day." The opening gala. Walter Peck "No, No, NO! I want the Ghostbusters ejected from this facility immediately." Peter Venkman "Where's his honor, Pecker? We've got news for him...and a photo-op." Walter Peck "The Mayor is indisposed right now. Anything you need to tell him goes through me." Peter Venkman "Not happening, Peck-a-bee. This is for Jock and Jock alone. We will wait for him to get redisposal." Eyes on statuary glows red. Walter Peck "Security! Remove these men...with excessive force." Peter Venkman "Uhhhh...Boys?" Ilyssa levitates into air. Sparks fly. Peter Venkman "Why do the good ones always play hard to get?" Mayor Mulligan "What in the hell is going on here?!" Winston Zeddemore "They got Peck!" Peter Venkman "I never got him." Winston Zeddemore "More possessor ghosts! Kid, you know what to do!" Peter Venkman "Ray..." Ray Stantz "Well I know what not to do." Winston Zeddemore "Party's over, folks! Clear the room! Ray, you stay in the back." Ray Stantz "Hurts, doesn't it? Let it all out." Walter Peck "I'll see you all on Rikers Island for this!" Peter Venkman "Whoa take a break! Do you ever shut up?" Winston Zeddemore "They're attacking the guests!" The Chairman grabs Ilyssa. Ray Stantz "All right, you guys go after Ilyssa! Be careful. I'll get to Security." Peter Venkman "I love this plan!" Ray Stantz "I'll man the security cameras to triangulate them on the monitors and talk you through." Winston Zeddemore "See you soon, Ray. Let's go, guys." Ray Stantz "See you soon, guys. Dr. Rutherford? If you'll show me to security?" Ilyssa Selwyn "Venkman! Get me down from here!" Peter Venkman "That's our cue." Winston Zeddemore "I don't think that guy is planning to be nice to her! It's a mannequin ambush! Don't bother trying to capture them! Just blast 'em down to nothing! Catch up to them!" Peter Venkman "That was nowhere near fatal. Let's make some noise." Winston Zeddemore "Hurry up! Before they get away! Take it to the bridge!" Ray Stantz on radio "Did Winston just say, 'Take it to the bridge'? What are you guys doing down there?" Winston Zeddemore "Fewer funny jokes, more getting to the security cameras, please, Ray." Ilyssa Selwyn "Peter! Oh my god!" Winston Zeddemore "Ah, he got away! Get to the Temple! The glowing one! Ray, can you see where they went?" Ray Stantz on radio "We haven't reached the security office yet! This place is really hopping!" Winston Zeddemore "Yeah, that's a big 10-4." Peter Venkman "Hittite. Menonite. Phoenician. Babylonian. Assyrian." Winston Zeddemore "Mesopotamian." Peter Venkman "Sumerian." Winston Zeddemore "Ahh, he's making it all up." Peter Venkman "Just one of those things. Ah, you pick this stuff up. You know, around the office." Ray Stantz on radio "Peter, come in." Peter Venkman "Hi, honey. How was your day?" Ray Stantz on radio "Men, we reached the security office. This one is in shambles! It's been sabotaged. Black slime all over the place. Only a few cameras are still working." Peter Venkman "When you're free, no rush, open gate 3487. Just for kicks." Ray Stantz on radio "Give me a minute." Gate 3487 opens. A woman's laughter heard over radio. Ray Stantz on radio "Whoa! We're under attack! We'll get back to you!" Winston Zeddemore "Ray, stay away from any possess..." Ray Stantz on radio "Kazza gorba smotz chorzig glump!! Froga! Froga!" Winston Zeddemore "Um, Dr. Rutherford? If you're still there, can you go catch Dr. Stantz, please?" Ray Stantz on radio "Okay, I shook off that possessor. Found a different security room. Can't find Dr. Rutherford, though. I must've scared him off." Winston Zeddemore "You're not pretty when you're possessed, Ray. Seriously." Ray Stantz on radio "I've got you on the cameras. You should be coming to the Civil War exhibit. Ilyssa just passed through there." Winston Zeddemore "Okay, we're on it. Thanks. You know the difference between this exhibit and the other ones? The soldiers in this one have guns. Let's just pass through here as quick as we can, and... Yeah, I didn't really think we could do it, either. I was just thinking happy thoughts, is all." Confederate and Union Ghosts manifest and blast up the exhibit. Peter Venkman "Huh." Ray Stantz on radio "I'm getting heavy interference on the monitors. Are you guys in trouble?" Winston Zeddemore "Couldn't have been the American Revolutionary War, could it? Or the War of the Roses. Even the War on Drugs. It just had to be this one. Maybe they're just props, but those barrels are marked 'explosive'! Wish this trap had a window; it'd be just like a little Vicksburg snow globe. Let's see you guys fight it out inside that tiny little trap." Peter Venkman "Yep. They took some casualties." Loading screen... Ray Stantz "We made it to the security office. I can see you guys on the cameras. No sign of Ilyssa or her kidnappers though. In the early 1900s, the museum was run by a board of trustees. Powerful guys, tycoons, captain's of industry. The chairman of the board was Cornelius Wellsley of International Steel. The board used the museum as a respectable front for all kinds of dubious activities. Mainly though, they were part of a club run by our favorite evil architect. They hired women from the St. Nicholas Rehabilitation Mission for Wayward Angels. Rumor has it, the board conducted all kinds of nasty rituals using these women." Team looks at two portraits, one of the Board of Trustees and one of Ivo Shandor. Winston Zeddemore "We've gotta find that oozing tub of blubber! And Ilyssa! Well, here we are. The Egypt exhibit. I practically lived here while I was working on my doctorate! There was less black slime then. Hey folks, it's okay! Be calm. Everything's under control!" Bystanders "It's the Ghostbusters! Ghost! Get away! Get away!" Door slams on trio. Peter Venkman "Watch it now." Winston Zeddemore "Yeah, of course. The trap locks us in with the ghosts. Wouldn't it be nice to get locked out every now and then?" Peter Venkman "Get your head down." Winston Zeddemore "Hey Ray, how do we get out of the Egypt exhibit? The main door is blocked up tight." Ray Stantz on radio "The Egyptian main room? Check the West wall. There should be a door leading through to the next exhibit." Winston Zeddemore "I'm looking right at the West Wall, and I don't see a door." Ray Stantz on radio "Well, I'm looking right at the blueprints, and uh... Oh, I get it. Clever. The ghosts used their own dimensionally anomalous signatures to slightly wrinkle the time-space continuum. The door is still there. What you're seeing is a fold in reality. The ghosts removed the door from this plane of existence." Winston Zeddemore "All I'm seeing in the paragoggles is a kind of glowing, purple aura. No door." Ray Stantz on radio "Well, this is an educated guess, but since the ghosts are gone their influence is fading. The anomaly should straighten itself out. Few hours, probably." Winston Zeddemore "A few hours? But I gotta...go." Ray Stantz on radio "Wish I could help ya, Z. But any analysis at this point is strictly theoretical." Winston Zeddemore "Okay. But the biological situation I'm experiencing is not theoretical at all." Ray Stantz on radio "Hm...I suppose, in theory mind you, positively charged slime could dissipate the wrinkle and restore everything to its..." Winston Zeddemore "Just slime the damn thing!" Rookie slimes the door. It works. Winston Zeddemore "Good! Thank you very much! Now let's get the hell out of here." Lights go out. Winston Zeddemore "Where'd Peter go now?" The Chairman "Nyhaahh ha ha!" Ray Stantz on radio "I think I just caught a glimpse of the chairman, too! Watch out for him, he looks like a nasty one!" Rookie opens the door. Chairman and Ilyssa are inside. Ilyssa Selwyn "Venkman help!" Peter Venkman "Why do the good ones always play hard to get?" Winston Zeddemore "There he is, let's get him! Come on, I think we're gaining on him!" Ilyssa Selwyn "Venkman help!" Ray Stantz on radio "Hey guys! Did you find Ilyssa? Where did that ghost go?" Winston Zeddemore "You didn't see him? But he just came through here!" Ray Stantz on radio "He must be headed back to the World of Gozer exhibit!" Ray opens the gate up. Peter Venkman "That's our cue. Mmmmmove it." Loading screen... Peter finds Ilyssa. Ilyssa Selwyn "What a nightmare." Peter Venkman "Thank you. Not the words a rescuing hero wants to hear from his damsel in distress. May I say your eyes are much prettier when they're not glowing like hot coals." Egon arrives. Egon Spengler "Peter! I've made an extraordinarily frightening discovery." Peter Venkman "Why don't you all go away?" Egon Spengler "All my data indicate that the Ghostworld is beginning to push through multiple cross portals from their dimension into ours." Peter Venkman "Well, more overtime." Winston Zeddemore "Guys! Look!" The Chairman appears and grabs Ilyssa again. Ilyssa Selwyn "Venkman help!" Peter Venkman "Now she calls my name!" Ray Stantz "Block the exits!" Egon Spengler "Don't let it escape with her!" Winston Zeddemore "Hit it with slime!" The Ghostbusters pelt the Chairman with slime. He weakens and drops Ilyssa. Peter Venkman "Winston! Get the lady outta here before he hits on her again!" Egon Spengler "Aim for the big yellow eye!" They blast the Chairman with Proton Streams. The Chairman disappears into a crack in the floor. Peter Venkman "Who wouldn't like to have that super power?" Mayor Mulligan "Care to tell me why my library, museum, and parade are all going down the toilet?!" Walter Peck "I keep telling you, sir, the Ghostbusters are nothing but scam artists determined to throw a negative light on you and the City... and extort you for more money!" Peter Venkman "Hello Peck. I own that suit in blue." Mayor Mulligan "Both of you! Pipe down!" Egon Spengler "Mr. Mayor, an enormous event is on the horizon." Ray Stantz "Something at the Museum exhibit triggered a systemized psychic occurrence. Some mechanism we don't know the nature of yet." Walter Peck "No. Of course you don't." Egon Spengler "But it's feeding enormous energy somewhere." Ray Stantz "Something that's now in the process of breaking down the walls between our world...and another one." Egon Spengler "This other world is crossing through into ours. It started with simple ghosts and animated monsters." Ray Stantz "Now it's getting bigger. We don't know exactly what's next. But there's only room for one city here in this dimension." Egon Spengler "Two physical worlds can't exist in the same space. That's just elementary particle physics." Peter Venkman "We got a glimpse of the other world, Jock. It ain't pretty. It's like Brooklyn and the Bronx with no Queens in the middle." Egon Spengler "...whole city blocks sinking into a fifth dimensional abyss!" Ray Stantz "Cockroaches the size of polo ponies." Egon Spengler "Panic in the streets!" Peter Venkman "How'd you like disco to come back? Bigger than ever." Mayor Mulligan "I get it. We're in trouble. So what am I supposed to do?!" Ray Stantz "We need to prepare the city for the worst." Mayor Mulligan "The city's my responsibility, not yours! Now go do your job and stop that thing!" Mayor leaves. Ray Stantz "You got a bite on your PKE, scan around for something paranormal with your goggles." Rookie blasts the weakened obelisk. The floor glows and a stairwell opens up. Ray Stantz "This way, gentlemen." Egon Spengler "Well, this looks inviting." Winston Zeddemore "I'll be at the office watching over Ilyssa. Don't do anything fun without me." Ray Stantz "He left a trail. This way! It probably goes without saying, but this is very strange." Peter Venkman "Well, that is your conversation starter. What's strange? So it's not steam, it's not Morlocks. But there's plenty of ghosts." Egon Spengler "You're right about that. There's more consistent, accelerated PKE blowing through here than I've ever seen. But this is not the origin point. This is just a conduit." Ray Stantz "Look at the trail! The Chairman went that way! He's running down this tunnel! Question is, where does it lead? Does it feel...weird in here to you guys? Like, familiar weird? Well, we know which way to go for a while at least. There's got to be another way around this. The trail leads to this sealed door, then stops." Peter Venkman "That was a little harsh. What'd you have against that wall?" Ray Stantz "The new cadet's alright." Peter Venkman "So far. Not too shabby." Ray Stantz "Egon. I think this is as good a time as any to install a new CPS. The Meson Collider is extremely precise and deals a lot of damage, but takes a while to recharge. The Overload Pulse disperses a rapid burst of meson particles. You can fire each of them independently: they both work great.
But you can also use them in tandem. Paint a target using the Meson Collider. After you've acquired the target, all expulsions from the Overload Pulse will home in on that target." They enter a chamber pumping Black Slime. Ray Stantz "Oh my. So MUCH black slime." Peter Venkman "Oh, it just seems like a lot because it's alive." Egon Spengler "The column! It's flowing upwards!" Ray Stantz "If you see a big yellow eye in there, poke it with something!" Egon Spengler "No yellow eye, Ray!" Ray Stantz "Maybe it already went up there." Egon Spengler "Well. That doesn't sound good." Peter Venkman "Is it my turn to lead? I don't want to jump in front." The Chairman cackles. Ray Stantz "Hello, Chairman. Ready to get what's coming to you?" The Chairman absorbs some PKE and swells up. Ray Stantz "Kidnapping is a class-1 felony, and we do not tolerate it in our jurisdiction! Get him!! It's got to have a weak spot somewhere!" Egon Spengler "Aim for the big yellow eye! Hit the eye with everything you've got!" The Chairman is dispersed. Ray Stantz "Nice work!" Egon Spengler "That's how it's done!" Loading screen... Walter Peck "I should've shuttered you fraudulent gangsters forever when I had the chance! You know what? I'm going to put an end to this madness now! Right now! I'm shutting down your containment grid for good! You can kiss off a permanent license, not to mention any chance for more government contracts! You did this to me, and you're going to pay!" Ray Stantz "You're welcome, you Peck." Walter Peck "Alright! That's it! That's it, you're done, smart guys! You are done, smart, cool guys! I have the authority and I am shutting you and your phony containment grid down NOW! The whole city will have to pay because of your shenanigans. The whole city!" Peter Venkman "What? But that shuts you down, too." Walter Peck "Well, so be it! I have bigger fish to fry. And get him off me!" Egon Spengler "I think we need to keep an eye on him." Peter Venkman "Ya think?" Egon Spengler "No. I mean, we really need to keep an eye on him. 11. Cinematic Six (Between Level 5 and Level 6) =============================================== Firehouse. The next morning (indicated by Slate on answering machine) Ilyssa Selwyn "You're real heroes." Peter Venkman "Kinda routine. As usual, I led the charge." Ray Stantz "We're fired heroes. Peck's gonna pull our license." Peter Venkman "Get real, Ray. It's the holidays! Nobody in this town is gonna be around to pull our license till Monday. We got the whole weekend to stop this calamity and probably half a dozen others, save the city. We got a four day weekend! We have time left for ourselves." Janine Melnitz "Dr. Venkman if they start evacuating Manhattan I won't be coming in on Monday. Catastrophic exodus of the city does not count as a floating holiday. I know, I looked it up." Ray Stantz "What does this symbol mean?" Winston Zeddemore "Uh, guys..." Winston readjusts the Mandala map. Winston Zeddemore "Perfect fit." Ray Stantz "It's not a constellation. It's a mandala." Ilyssa Selwyn "I can't believe I never saw it before." Peter Venkman "Ok, for one minute pretend someone here doesn't know what a Mandala is." Egon Spengler "A mandala is like a spiritual labyrinth." Ray Stantz "And this one looks like a spiraling system that feeds into each successive node along the line until it reaches a culmination point. Before he died, Shandor must have set some mechanism in place similar to the antenna in Dana's building." Peter Venkman "You know, I think you helped to make that clearer. So this was the gizmo that's supposed to feed energy to the destructor form?" Ray Stantz "That's...that's right, Peter!" Ilyssa Selwyn "Well! Dr. Venkman!" Peter Venkman "Well I had to get one right eventually. Didn't I? I mean, it's just math." Egon Spengler "Alright, I'm just speculating but it's possible Ghosts are trapped in the system funneled from node to node, and they get stronger and stronger, until they reach the end, and then they..." Ray Stantz "Look! The first portal, the library. The second...the museum. And the third...the Sedgewick." Egon Spengler "And that means the fourth portal must be...right...here." Winston Zeddemore "The middle of the Hudson River?" Ray Stantz "Well, according to the mandala, yes." Egon Spengler "It may need a little tweaking." Peter Venkman "I don't know, plenty of bodies in that river to become ghosts." Ilyssa Selwyn "But what does this have to do with me? What did I do?" Ray Stantz "You were at the museum and the Sedgewick." Egon Spengler "Maybe you were some sort of catalyst... accidentally setting things in motion." Ilyssa Selwyn "You're saying this is my fault?" Peter Venkman "You are blameless! What Egon meant to say was that you have some sort of connection to this thing and we're gonna go back to the Sedgewick and find out what. Isn't that right, brainiac?" Egon Spengler "That's right, Peter." Ray Stantz "Ilyssa, do you remember where you were going when you were at the Sedgewick?" Ilyssa Selwyn "I was standing outside a room... 1221. Something was compelling me to go in, but I woke up just before the door opened. I ran out of there as fast as I could. And then some jerk tried to pick me up on the elevator." Peter Venkman "Okay, you need to stay here, where it's safe, and where you can't set off any more crossdimensional shockwaves, hot stuff. Here, read up on the mandala, and the boys will check out the Sedgewick." Winston Zeddemore "The boys? And what about you, superstar?" Peter Venkman "I'm gonna have you drop me off near Peck's office. Something tells me he's not quite what he seems." Ray Stantz "Good idea. Meet us at the hotel when you're done." Loading screen... Ecto 1-b leaves the Firehouse. It arrives at the Sedgewick Hotel. Winston Zeddemore "Whoa. If this place were any more dead, we'd need a coroner." Ray Stantz "Egon used to be a licensed coroner." Winston Zeddemore "No kidding?" Egon Spengler "It's just a hobby now." They see a paper on the front entrance doors. Winston Zeddemore "Closed until further notice by the Paranormal Contracts Oversight Commission." Ray Stantz "PCOC!" Winston Zeddemore "Entrance into this establishment is strictly forbidden and is punishable by fine and imprisonment." Egon Spengler "What now? Hmm." Ray Stantz "This notice is for the general public. It doesn't apply to us. We're bonded contractors for the city!" Winston Zeddemore "Especially the Ghostbusters." Egon tears up the notice. Ray Stantz "Alright, heat 'em up. We'll melt our way in." Egon Spengler "Wait! I have a better idea." Egon opens the door. Winston Zeddemore "Good thinking." Inside... Egon Spengler "Hmm. This is disappointing." Winston Zeddemore "No. Disappointing is the Jets losing in the last two minutes. Not being covered in slime by phantom ghouls out to kill us... doesn't exactly make me reach for a hanky. Why'd they shut down? You guys didn't bang the place up that bad last time you were here." Ray Stantz "If this place is a mandala node, a few burnt walls and broken ceilings are the last thing anybody's..." Egon Spengler "And smashed furniture, broken chandeliers, destroyed paintings, shattered vases, probably some minor structural damage..." Ray Stantz "Thanks, Egon. My point being that there's more to worry about here than some minor cosmetic issues." Egon Spengler "Definitely a mandala node." Ray Stantz "If we don't shut down Shandor's Mandala soon, most of Manhattan will become as vacant as this. Not to mention also becoming a bastion of absolute, mind numbing horror for centuries to come." Winston Zeddemore "Hey! I definitely don't lay out two grand a month for a 600 square foot walk-up to live in a bastion! Let's get to work." 12. Level 6 Return to the Sedgewick Dialogue ============================================ Winston Zeddemore "It's an ambush! Get 'em hot!" Ray Stantz "Wait a minute...wait! I don't think they're a threat. They may only be residual hauntings." Egon Spengler "I think Ray's right. They haven't crossed entirely into this dimension. They're just psychokinetic echoes. Ghosts of ghosts. Completely harmless." Winston Zeddemore "Great. I was hoping to meet a friendly ghost some day, but I'll settle for 'harmless' right now." Egon Spengler "I'm getting a strong valence spike higher up in the building." Ray Stantz "Ilyssa said she was called to the 12th floor. Let's start there. Come on, kid. They'd have shut down the power when they closed." Winston Zeddemore "Can we take the stairs." Egon Spengler "Well, we can try climbing but the last time we were here, a level three animator took out the bottom of the staircase." Ray Stantz "Yeah, that's right. I forgot you weren't here last time, Winston. So no stairs, no elevators... Did you hear something?" Winston Zeddemore "Over there! C'mon!" Ray Stantz "I think we're dealing with a Level Five Anchored Ambusher! Be careful." Winston Zeddemore "It went into the stairwell! We've got it cornered!" John O'Keefe "Help!" Ray Stantz "This is just how a Level Five Anchored Ambusher lures you in!" They go in. It's John O'Keefe, the manager. Ray Stantz "The Manager! What are you doing here?" John O'Keefe "Ghosts! Monsters! Everywhere!" Winston Zeddemore "There was another voice - a woman screamed. Are you alone in here?" John O'Keefe "Look, I just said 'ghosts and monsters everywhere.' Does that sound like I'm alone?" Ray Stantz "He meant people." John O'Keefe "Then yes...I think so. Aaaaah!" Ray Stantz "Well, I guess that explains it." Egon Spengler "Sir, there's no need to fear. These are just shadows; echoes of actual ghosts. They can't hurt you." Winston Zeddemore "Come with us sir, we can lead you to safety." They see an echo, a woman with a web tattoo on back, holding a knife, and a man 'enter' elevator. John O'Keefe "My God!" Winston Zeddemore "Someone you know?" John O'Keefe "I don't know. Most of the old staff knows the story of the Spider Witch, a professional widow who did unimaginable things in a room on the 12th floor back in the 1920's." Egon Spengler "What are you still doing here? Why didn't you evacuate with everyone else?" John O'Keefe "I came back last night to retrieve some payroll records, but the hotel won't let me out! The doors shut on me! And the phones are down too." Winston Zeddemore "That means we're trapped now too. And we have to hope that Peter figures out we're missing? There goes the weekend." Egon Spengler "Not necessarily. The 12th floor is apparently the core of this node. If we can get the power back on, we can take the elevators." Winston Zeddemore "If the elevators don't eat us." Egon Spengler "Yes, if the elevators don't eat us." Ray Stantz "Where are the circuit breakers for this place? We don't have a lot of time." John O'Keefe "Uh...breakers. In my office. But the city came and turned off most of our power after the electrical fire on the 3rd floor. There's no way to turn it back on from here." Egon Spengler "That's inconvenient." Winston Zeddemore "We've gotta find some way to get the elevators moving." John O'Keefe "There's a backup generator in the utility room off the kitchen. It's for emergency blackouts." Ray Stantz "Perfect. Let's give it a try. To the kitchen! Watch out!" John O'Keefe "Aaaaah!" Egon Spengler "I guess some of them apparently fulminate to this place. It doesn't seem like they're happy about it." Winston Zeddemore "Right! Now, let's find that backup generator." Ray Stantz "The kitchen. Is it through here?" John O'Keefe "Yes, just down the hall. Aaaaah!" O'Keefe passes out. Team enters the kitchen and hears cackling. Egon Spengler "Hello? Anyone there?" Ray Stantz "Alright guys, spread out. The utility room should be around here somewhere." Winston Zeddemore "In some dark, scary corner." Egon Spengler "I know I've said this before, but be careful. I don't think we're alone." Winston Zeddemore "This place is wrecked. Did you and Venkman do all this when you were chasing Slimer?" Ray Stantz "No, this is a lot worse that the way they could have left it. This is the work of something big." Winston Zeddemore "When you say 'big' do you mean 'big-big?'" Ray Stantz "Mm-hm. At the very least. Maybe even bigger." Winston Zeddemore "That sounds pretty big. The manager said there was a generator room around here somewhere, look for a door. It has to be around here somewhere. Keep an eye out for a sign." Ray Stantz "Look! Cadet found the emergency generator!" Winston Zeddemore "Look around for a switch or something to start it up." Ray Stantz "What's it look like?" Egon Spengler "Probably like a switch. Or something that would start up a generator." Ray Stantz "All right, Egon. But you should know I'm keeping score." Egon Spengler "What did I say?" Ray Stantz "There's a lot of water on the floor. Watch out for static discharge when you activate the generator. Ah! Sweet music!" Egon Spengler "I'd recommend not stepping in that water." Winston Zeddemore "That sounds like an excellent recommendation." Ray Stantz "Looks like that power cable is causing all the trouble." Winston Zeddemore "Get it out of the water, then!" Ray Stantz "I know this much: we're trapped down here like rats until that cable's out of the water." Winston Zeddemore "How about some slime tethering?! Tether it up!" Egon Spengler "Pull it out of there!" Ray Stantz "Slime Tether!" Egon Spengler "Slime Tether!" Ray Stantz "Come on, kid." Egon Spengler "The elevators should be working. Unless something...nevermind. Let's get back to the lobby." Ray Stantz "Listen! What's that smell?" Winston Zeddemore "Over there! C'mon!" Cook Ghosts and the Chef Ghost manifest in the kitchen. Ray Stantz "Look out! It's the late shift!" Winston Zeddemore "Yeah, but this is just the help! Where's the boss? I can't believe I just said that out loud!" Ray Stantz "I know that guy! It's the mass poisoner, Chef DeForrest! So nobody eat anything in here! Even if you're really hungry!" Winston Zeddemore "I'm about to swallow my own tongue, Ray. Will that be okay?" Firefight ensues. Winston Zeddemore "All right. This kitchen is clean. Let's get back to the elevators." John O'Keefe "Thank god you're here!" Egon Spengler "Okay, it looks like the psycho-mass has come to rest about 190 feet above our heads." Ray Stantz "The 13th floor." John O'Keefe "This hotel has no 13th floor! None of the grand old hotels do!" Winston Zeddemore "Man's got a strong argument." Ray Stantz "We'll split the difference. Egon, you and the Tenderfoot go to the 12th floor. Winston and I will check out the 14th, (to manager) Sir, if you'll please come with us." Egon Spengler "Fine. But stay in contact. This place is extraordinarily dangerous." Winston hits the elevator button. Egon Spengler "Well, let's see what's on the twelfth floor." Winston Zeddemore on radio "Egon, what were you saying earlier about the mandala node?" Egon Spengler "You mean why do we keep seeing new ghosts?" Winston Zeddemore on radio "Yeah." Egon Spengler "Okay. Think of the mandala as a city bus line. At the bus station, ghosts, or waiting passengers, are drawn into the system here and trapped. This concentrates their PK energy which is then eventually forced through the next node, or 'station,' and so on, until it all ends at a final terminus. At each successive bus station, the station manager absorbs some of the energy. This makes the station manager, or Node Guardian, stronger, so that it can keep the ghosts in line and destroy anyone who comes to the station to interfere with the flow. These nodes or bus stations gather the power used to feed a central point thus creating a much bigger threat to our world. Does that make more sense now?" Winston Zeddemore on radio "TTTC. Totally Trapped Transit Company." Ray Stantz in radio "Yeah, you were going strong right up until the passengers got trapped inside the bus station." Winston Zeddemore on radio "When is my performance review again? I deserve more stock options." Suddenly the lights go and the Spider Witch and victim echoes are present. Male victim "I say, young lady, you are full of surprises!" After you, my dear!" They exit through the door. Lights turn back on. Egon Spengler "Well. That was terrifying. Be extremely careful. This is likely to be a point of dangerous concentration. Odd. It's coming from everywhere and nowhere. Impossible to get a significant fix. Ray, come in. Are you there?" Ray Stantz on radio "Egon. What happened? We lost you for a minute there." Egon Spengler "We had a close contact." Ray Stantz on radio "I've got some more information on the Spider Witch ghost. Manager says authorities never found her but..." John O'Keefe on radio "The bodies were hung from the ceiling! They were drained of blood and dragged around!" Ray Stantz on radio "He says the victims were found in a pretty bad state." John O'Keefe on radio "The walls were pained in blood! Furniture was half chewed and crushed and piled in a corner like a giant nest!" Ray Stantz on radio "She seems to have vandalized the room badly too." Egon Spengler "Hm. I don't want to be hung from a ceiling and drained of blood." Winston Zeddemore on radio "I'll tell you this: I do NOT want to be found in a bad state...OR vandalized." Ray Stantz on radio "I think that sentiment is unanimous." Rookie and Egon stop at double doors. The P.K.E. Meter is buzzing. Egon Spengler "Are you ready?" A glimpse of something is seen briefly when they open the door. Egon Spengler "Ray! Come in!" Ray Stantz on radio "Yeah, what's up?" Egon Spengler "What was the Spider Witch's room number?" John O'Keefe on radio "1221. After her spree, it was locked up. Until about five years ago when we remodeled." Ray Stantz "Hear that? Room 1221. I think that...Hey!" A voice is heard. Voice of Spider Witch "Oh, greet our visitors." Spider Crawlers attack Rookie and Egon. Egon Spengler "We're not alone in here." Voice of Spider Witch "The Chairman sends the little spirits to me. They love me. They make me strong." Egon Spengler "This floor is undergoing significant metamorphosis. Ghostworld is aggressively encroaching on ours. It's not even utilizing a portal. This is very bad." Voice of a male victim "My ankles? Goodness, we hardly know each other! No, I... Who...what are you?! No..! Help! No! Please...AAAAAHHHHHHHH!" Egon is silent. Egon Spengler "It's the Ghostworld crossing through! Happening sooner than we expected! It looks like this is where the node is focused! We could use some help! - (into radio) - Ray, are you there?! Come in Ray!" Nothing. Egon Spengler "Looks like it's up to us...let's find 1221 and finish this." Voice of Spider Witch "Come play with my friends." Spider Crawlers attack." Egon Spengler "Come on!" Voice of Spider Witch "Oh, you've come to play games? Oh, I know lots of games." Egon Spengler "1220... 1222. No 1221. Where is it? 1221 has to be here. Remember, just because we can't see it doesn't mean it isn't here." Rookie uses P.K.E. Meter to find the hidden door and slimes it open. Egon Spengler "Good thinking! It was here all along. Well, this looks inviting. I don't like the look of this, but we've run out of options." Voice of Spider Witch "Come to me, little man. Don't be afraid." Loading screen... Something dashes past Egon and Rookie. Wicked cackling is heard. Egon Spengler "We aren't alone." Voice of Spider Witch "Which ones are these? These are not mine. Everyone here is mine. The quiet men, the angry men, the hungry men, the scuttling ones... Yes! Now you are here and that means you are mine. This won't hurt a bit. You're going to feel a tiny prick. Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!" Egon Spengler "Head's up!" Spider Witch "This is for you! Oh, are you flirting with me?" Egon Spengler "It's growing stronger" Don't let it power up!" Spider Witch "Oh, I don't think so. I'm so weak..." Egon Spengler "Don't let it recharge! Now! Drill it!" Spider Witch "You. Hurt me? Silly men. Come play with my friends. Oh, tear them apart!" Egon Spengler "Multiple contacts!" Spider Witch is struggling and falls from the ceiling onto her back. A white flash envelops the area. Egon and Rookie suddenly find themselves in the Ruby Ballroom and sight the Mandala. Egon Spengler "Look...the Mandala Map!" The node shuts off. Egon Spengler "Ray, Winston, come in. You there?" Ray Stantz on radio "Egon! What happened? You alright?" Egon Spengler "The Recruit found the 13th Floor and we shut it down. PKE levels are back to acceptable parameters. This node of the mandala is fully neutronized." Ray Stantz on radio "Alright! Where are you? We went back down to the 12th floor and couldn't find anything. Everything seems pretty normal." Egon Spengler "Looks like we're back in the Ruby Ballroom. We'll meet you at Ecto-1." 13. Cinematic Seven (Between Level 6 and Level 7) ================================================= A thick fog. Peter can be heard. Peter Venkman "Egon, remind me. Why are we driving aimlessly in the fog?" Egon Spengler "The final node, Venkman. Close it and we seal the Mandala, trapping the ghosts inside." Peter Venkman "Sorry to break this to you, Egon. But I just don't see a Mandala..." An island rises from the Hudson River right in front of them. Egon Spengler "You were saying?" Ray Stantz "Shandor Island...it's here!" Stalagmites rain down on them. Ray Stantz "It's too unstable. I'm going to have to drop you guys and circle. If Ecto-8 sinks, we're sunk too." Peter Venkman "Ray, since you're the most excited about to going to ghost island, why don't I just take the boat?" Ray shakes his head and gives Peter a suspicious look. Peter Venkman "I thought I was making a nice gesture, and you're giving me the suspicious look. Drop it instantly. Let's get going, because nobody enjoys rushing headlong towards their death more than this fellow." 14. Level 7 Lost Island Rising Dialogue ======================================= Winston Zeddemore "What's the story behind this place, Egon?" Egon Spengler "The Shandors owned this island for generations. The castle was built in the 1860s. Ivo Shandor used it as a refuge, a lab, and a temple for he and other cult members to worship Gozer." Peter Venkman "Hmm." Winston Zeddemore "Okay, that's all well and good. But can someone explain to me how an entire island sinks?" Egon Spengler "The night the last Shandor died, there was a huge tidal surge and the river just swallowed the island while. Shandor consecrated the island to Gozer, and the Ghostworld reclaimed it." Peter Venkman "Mm Hm." Winston Zeddemore "City's lucky it's in the middle of the river instead of Rockefeller Center." Egon Spengler "We're lucky now. But soon the Ghostworld will continue to assert itself into ours, and the damage will be incalculable." Peter Venkman "Hm. Just another screwed up day at the office." Egon Spengler "It appears that we need to take that staircase to get inside." Winston Zeddemore "That's a big hole, guys. And I am not swimming in the Hudson River in November. So, how do you want to get across?" Egon Spengler "Maybe that crane still works." Peter Venkman "Well. If you could get that from over there over here...make the world a better place." Egon Spengler "Good idea!" Winston Zeddemore "Look at that! Rookie moved the crane!" Egon Spengler "Alright, swing it around!" Winston Zeddemore "Almost! Work it over this way to cover the hole!" Egon Spengler "Bring it in! Almost there! Whoa! Great!" Peter Venkman "Yo! New guy!" Winston Zeddemore "Good work!" Peter Venkman "Head's up!" A mine cart races past Rookie. Winston Zeddemore "Oh! You alright?" Peter Venkman "What's with you? You know we only get paid if we live." Egon Spengler "Recruit, you okay? Let's keep moving." Peter Venkman "Careful, we don't wear helmets." Ray Stantz on radio "Guys? There's way too much dangerous debris falling in here. I've gotta take Marine Ecto-8 out where it's safer." "Don't get too far, Ray. If we need you, we're gonna need you really fast!" Winston Zeddemore "(whistles) Check this joint out!" Egon Spengler "That's a three million dollar view, even by Manhattan standards." Peter Venkman "My apartment used to look like this." Egon Spengler "Shandor's public architectural style ranged from Federal to Art Deco. His personal tastes, however, obviously leaned toward the Gozerian. " Winston Zeddemore "Oh, now I see what they mean by early demonic." Egon Spengler "Well. That doesn't sound good. There's an open door!" Winston Zeddemore "Hey! We know those guys." Gargoyles attack the team. Egon Spengler "That explains why they attacked us in Times Square: they're gargoyles from Shandor buildings." Winston Zeddemore "Guess Ivo would be tickled pink to know his old security system still works so long after he died." The doorway closes on them. Winston Zeddemore "Look. The doors controlled by that chain!" Peter Venkman "Hey you. You're up, buddy!" Egon Spengler "Okay, cadet. You first... I've got your back. Did you know that hedge mazes are historically designed to conceal a secret shortcut?" Winston Zeddemore "Well there's still one crank that works down here. Try using it to open the door." Egon Spengler "Wind the chain!" Winston Zeddemore "That did it! The door's wide open! Get back up here!" Peter Venkman "Yeah, that'll work." Egon Spengler "Hm. I take it we're not welcome." Winston Zeddemore Yeah? There's a first." They pause. Loading Screen... Winston Zeddemore "Ilyssa. I see her." Peter Venkman "You and me both. She's wearing just a simple terrycloth robe. And she's brought me coffee." Winston Zeddemore "That's her, all right. Splitting image." The team looks at a portrait of a woman. Egon Spengler "The resemblance is uncanny. This is Ivo Shandor's mother, painted in 1885." Winston Zeddemore "Wait. What? Ilyssa is a Shandor?" Peter Venkman "Why does this always happen to me? I meet a girl. She's crazy about me. But she always turns out to be some kind of unbelievable fixer upper!" Egon Spengler "This is all making sense. Ilyssa must have inadvertently triggered the Mandala because she has Shandor blood." Peter Venkman "She doesn't know it. When I did her profile, she told me she was adopted." Winston Zeddemore "Some coincidence, huh?" Peter Venkman "You don't really believe this happened by accident?" Winston Zeddemore "No. Someone must have known and set this up." Egon Spengler "The Mayor did say that Peck personally recommended Ilyssa to be the guest curator of the Gozer Exhibit." Winston Zeddemore "Once a Peck, always a Peck. Shandor must have employed hundreds of workers for years to build this place!" Egon Spengler "The supports are waterlogged, the mortar is decrepit, and the foundation is shattered. In purely physical terms, there's no way all this can still be standing." Winston Zeddemore "You sound like you're surprised." Egon Spengler "No. Not really. It's beautiful, in a horrific way." Ray Stantz on radio "You can't deny the pure genius of Shandor, it's a pity that it was all used for evil. If he would have just channeled some of it for good, the things he could have done." Egon Spengler "Posthumous Black Mass." Winston Zeddemore "What? People still worshiping? Even after they're dead? That's a powerful church, man." Egon Spengler "That might explain how these structures are still standing!" Ray Stantz on radio "Oh yeah! Ethereal stability induced by sheer focused concentration of posthumous will! Unbelievable!" Winston Zeddemore "Yeah, right. 'Unbelievable.' What's unbelievable is that you can still use that word in context." Peter Venkman "This is gravy." Winston Zeddemore "It is officially time for us to go." Loading screen... Winston Zeddemore "(whistles) Check this joint out!" Egon Spengler "Unless my sensory array is malfunctioning, that is definitely the place we're looking for." It is a Mandala on ground. A trap door opens up underneath Rookie. Peter Venkman "Hey, where'd the caddy go? Yo! Cool-breeze! Come on out!" Egon Spengler "Peter! Behind you!" Rookie comes to. Hears the team. Winston Zeddemore "No! Get back! Take your imaginary hands off me, man!" Egon Spengler "No! There's too many of them!" Winston Zeddemore "Egon! They got Egon bring him back here! Kid! Help us!" Ray Stantz on radio "Okay you need to get to the others so they can help you, please be careful we don't know what we are dealing with yet, but it sounds big and when big things attack it hurts." After exploring the sewers... Winston Zeddemore on radio "Hey, Rook! I'm trapped in a dark place. Can barely move my arms. Can you find me? I think you're getting closer to me, the sounds are getting louder. You know, I always did like you more than the others did. Keep looking, man. I've got to be around somewhere in here!" Rookie finds him in an Iron Maiden. Winston Zeddemore "Hey thanks, man! I was seriously cramping up in there. This is all looking a little familiar. Ray would be giggling right now. This must be where all the mood slime came from. Look! They must've pumped it straight into the sewers from here. Let's go find Egon, then we'll think about finding Peter. What IS this place? Shandor's cult was working some crazy experiments in here. There's blue slime, pink slime, yellow slime. But every ghost in here is coated with black slime. What's generating it all? Where's it all coming from? Being dead for 80 years sure hasn't improved these guys' disposition any. I'm not sure which one of you shoved me in that crate, but you all owe me a big apology! You picked the wrong side, ghost. Shandor isn't here to help you now, is he?! Let's see how you like living in a tiny little box, amigo! This is the kind of stuff that really shows well on you review. I think you are really turning some heads back at headquarters. Man, what are these spooks up to in here? I get the whole Mandala-immortality-and-power thing, but what's up with all the slime science? Ah. This island has got to be sitting directly on a cross-dimensional portal." Egon Spengler on radio "I think I hear you guys. Yes, that sounds like my equipment. You are getting close." They find Egon in an Iron Maiden. Egon Spengler "Get me out of this thing. I don't want to be eaten by black slime." Winston Zeddemore "Egon, hang on, we are almost to you!" Egon Spengler "Thank you. This is going to reflect well on your performance review. In most cases I find close proximity to mildew stimulating. That was a little much, though. Have you seen Venkman?" Winston Zeddemore "Well..you know..." Egon Spengler "Have you looked for him?" Winston Zeddemore "Well..you know..." Egon Spengler "The meter seems to indicate that he's somewhere in this direction" Black Slime Ghosts attack. Egon Spengler "This machinery indicated an astounding level of sophistication. Pure evil notwithstanding, Ivo Shandor was far ahead of his time. You know I have to take my hat off to Shandor. This lab was built how many years ago? It's truly impressive. It's likely Shandor was THE parapsychology expert of his time." Winston Zeddemore "Stay in the light, Egon." Egon Spengler "I'm trying, Winston." Winston Zeddemore "Should we try to find Peter, or...?" Egon Spengler "They probably stashed him around here somewhere." Peter Venkman "Help! Yo, a little help!" Winston Zeddemore "Shh! I think I hear him!" Peter Venkman "Did somebody call a break?" Winston Zeddemore "Yeah, that's Venkman, all right. Now. We're sure about this, right?" Egon Spengler "We need to be at full strength to shut down this Node." Ray Stantz on radio "Way to go! I feel a momentum swing in our favor, get out there and find the mandala node and shut it down. That should really piss someone off." They take elevator up and meet up with Peter. Peter Venkman "Hey. I got places to go, people to meet. Can we move outta here?" Ray Stantz on radio "Great job kid, glad to hear Peter is okay!" Winston Zeddemore "What are they doing?" Egon Spengler "The readings are as big as those at the library when we crossed over. I think it's safe to assume that the machine they're working on was not built for a benign purpose. It's an orrery; a device typically used for predicting planetary alignment. In this case it appears to actually be aligning dimensions." Winston Zeddemore "I for one do not want the dimensions to align. Not this close to Christmas." Egon Spengler "That would put a damper on the holidays." Winston Zeddemore "How do we shut that thing down?" Egon Spengler "The motion of those devices seems to be generating some sort of energy. Hard to tell, though." Winston Zeddemore "What if we tried locking those things down?" Egon Spengler "I can calculate 54 likely outcomes. We'd survive 3 of them." Winston Zeddemore "That beats our usual odds." Egon Spengler "Unfortunately, you're correct. Let's do it." Winston Zeddemore "It looks like the movement of those spheres is stabilizing the interior structure. What if they stopped moving? So far this goofy island has been a slime tether amusement park. Why should that change now? Lock those sphere's down, man! We gotta stop those balls from moving! I mean...aw, you know what I mean. Yes! You did it! How come people smart enough to use science always try to take over the Universe? Huh? Egon? Ray? Anyone..didn't think so." Egon Spengler "Wait. Those planets are aligning. I'm not so sure this is the safest course of action. I think we found the source of the black slime, Winston." Winston Zeddemore "I wasn't that curious! The whole room's filling up! Get to higher ground!" Egon Spengler "Alright, gentlemen. It's official: this was a bad idea." Room fills with black slime. Team runs up the stairs. The orrery collapses. Peter Venkman "Shh! Here comes the big finale." Winston Zeddemore "Ugh! The stench is horrible!" Peter Venkman "Smells like the Fulton fish market when they've got fish. Wait. I know that dumpster." Egon Spengler "A putrid mass of hatred, bile, and anger." Winston Zeddemore "Not exactly Mr. Sunshine is he?" Peter Venkman "This is the part where we do what we do! Blow it back to the cradle." Winston Zeddemore "Yow! Hit his eyes, Rookie! Giving me the evil eye, huh?" Egon Spengler "Get him in the eyes!" Peter Venkman "Hey. You lookin' at me? We've got to cut off his Visine. Somebody chop some onions!" The Sloar breaks a restraint. Winston Zeddemore "It's got to be vulnerable somewhere!" Egon Spengler "Statistically speaking, that's not entirely accurate!" Winston Zeddemore "Statistically speaking, we better hope it is!" Egon Spengler "Okay! Fair enough! What about that that inaccessible anterior nodule?" Winston Zeddemore "The glowy thing on its head? That is its head, isn't it?" Egon Spengler "I'm not sure that matters! How an we get to it?" Winston Zeddemore "Hey! Rookie! Run around and look delicious, will you?" Egon Spengler "There it is! Concentrate our fire at that node!" Winston Zeddemore "Hit it right there! It doesn't like that at all! He's taking the bait! Why are you shooting at everything BUT the glowy thing on its head?!" The Sloar is defeated. Peter Venkman "And that is all she wrote." Egon Spengler "All the nodes are closed. The ghosts are trapped in the Mandala." Winston Zeddemore "Right where they belong! Our boy Ivo Shandor didn't factor in that he was messin' with the Ghostbusters! Ha ha HA!" Peter Venkman "Yeah. Peck made the same mistake. We're gonna have a long talk with him." Egon Spengler "Don't forget that Peter's girlfriend is a Shandor." Peter Venkman "I'm gonna have a...a very long talk with her." Ray Stantz on radio "You guys need to get down to the shore, and fast! I don't know how much longer I can hold her - the whole island's sinking!" Winston Zeddemore "Ray, keep the motor running! We are coming at you fast!" Ecto-8 Winston Zeddemore "Peter! Get out of there!" Peter and Rookie are last onboard. Ray Stantz "How was it!? Was it cool!? What did it look like!? Did you get any samples?! Did it have multiple eyes!?" Everyone turns to Ray. Egon Spengler "SHUT UP!" 15. Cinematic Eight (Between Level 7 and Level 8) ================================================= Loading screen... The Ghostbusters return to the Firehouse in shambles. Janine Melnitz "Oh, thank god you're here!" Ray Stantz "What's going on, Janine? Where's Ilyssa?" Janine Melnitz "She's gone! They took her! One minute everything was fine, the next it was chaos! Ghosts flying everywhere!" Egon Spengler "Janine, slow down! Start from the beginning." Janine Melnitz "Okay. Well. I was a little late this morning because one of my heels on my favorite pair of pumps broke and Lester's was out of my favorite tea. You know how I love my chamomile. Well, a-and..." Peter Venkman "Okay, maybe not the beginning. Start when things went haywire around here?" Janine Melnitz "Okay, okay. Somebody jumped me from behind. And before I passed out, I heard Ilyssa struggling and yelling, 'No!' And the last thing I remember was the screams of the dead and damned echoing in my brain!" Peter Venkman "So either there was a mass escape from Rikers..." Egon Spengler "...or someone shut down our containment grid. Again." Ray Stantz "Again?" Winston Zeddemore "Just like Peck threatened to do." Peter Venkman "It's funny. I always knew that Peck was a pencil-necked bureaucratic prick. But I never pegged him as an evil occultist." Ray Stantz "But where did he take her?" Winston Zeddemore "And where are all the ghosts? 'Cause, no offense, but if all the ghosts we've ever caught just escaped, I'm clocking out." Ray Stantz "Yeah, they would be awfully mad at us." Winston Zeddemore "Exactly. It's generally a bad idea for the guards to hang out in the cell blocks just after a prison break." TV - Male Reporter "This just in: as authorities continue to supervise the Thanksgiving evacuation of Manhattan, increasingly powerful tremors are rocking Central Park. The question is: where are the Ghostbusters?" NY News 6 "Disturbance at parade" Everyone bent sideways to watch TV. Peter Venkman "Tell you what... Kind of a nice day. Why don't we go to Central Park? Could round up some ghosts, save the girl... get back in time for a nap?" Ray Stantz "Okay! The Ghostbusters ride again!" 16. Level 8 Central Park Cemetery Dialogue ========================================== Firehouse. Janine answers a call. Janine Melnitz "Oh, hi. Really? Mm-hmmm. So I told him that if they start evacuating Manhattan, that I don't plan on coming in on Monday. And he says...and he says I've already used all my floating holidays this year... Right? I tell him, "Dr. Venkman. Catastrophic exodus of the city doesn't count as a floating holiday." No, it doesn't. I looked it up. So he hands me the employee handbook and tells me to look again, and that what is and isn't covered is very clearly defined. What? Yeah it was in there! In his handwriting...in pencil! He wrote it in when he asked me to get his coffee. Anyway. I can take a half-day on Monday if they evacuate the city. Alright. Goodbye." Rookie goes to Ecto 1-b Loading screen... Winston Zeddemore "Just once, I wouldn't mind running with these other tools away from the trouble." Peter Venkman "Where's the fun in that?" Tombstones jut out from ground in Central Park. 55 Central Park West is seen in the background. Ghosts are drawn to a mausoleum that rises from ground. Egon Spengler "Any guesses on where we'll find Peck and Ilyssa?" Rookie shoots a tree. It crashes down. Ray Stantz "I suspect that we're going to need the Super Slammer up there. No telling how...powerful Peck has grown." Winston Zeddemore "That means we gotta take the Ecto-1. I'll drive." Egon Spengler "Maybe the trainee should drive." All "Nahh." Ray Stantz "Thanks, Winston. Any ideas?" Peter Venkman gives Rookie a hand. Peter Venkman "Ah!" Ray Stantz "Junior's pretty spry, even with that hundred pounds of Proton Accelerator." Peter Venkman "Oww! That was, that was 'oww' there!" Egon Spengler "Make your way around to the other side and open this gate for us." Ray Stantz on radio "Wow! Look at the storm system building above that tower!" Egon Spengler on radio "Remember the last time we saw that kind of atmospheric disturbance?" Winston Zeddemore on radio "That's right. At Dana Barrett's building the night she turned into a dog." Gates shut on Rookie. Winston Zeddemore on radio "I don't get it. We shut down the mandala. How can all this still be happening?" Ray Stantz on radio "In the Gozerian Codex, it's written that a blood sacrifice and a tremendous amount of spiritual energy are needed to generate the Supreme Destructor Form." Winston Zeddemore on radio "A Destructor Form, again?" Egon Spengler on radio "Peck probably couldn't draw sufficient energy from the mandala before we shut it down. He found an alternate source in our containment unit." Ray Stantz on radio "The energy of the escaped ghosts from our grid might be enough to produce a cross-dimensional event in itself." Egon Spengler on radio "Yes, and with Ilyssa here, I'm sure her Shandor ancestors aren't far behind." Rookie heads enters a structure. Whisper "You shouldn't be here." Winston Zeddemore on radio "Earthquakes... great. Could plague, pestilence, and death be far behind?" Ray Stantz on radio "I'd bet on it. Speed it up there, Tiger." Winston Zeddemore on radio "Yeah, we don't want to stand here all day." Ray Stantz on radio "Hoss, you alright? How's that gate coming?" Rookie finds the Gate Control and let's the team in. Ray Stantz "I'll go with the intern. Nobody should wander around alone in this place. We'll meet you guys a little further on." They explore the cemetery. Ray Stantz "They aren't very happy about us being here." Zombies sneak around. Ray Stantz "You saw 'em too, didn't ya? They think they're sneaky. Let's spread out and flank 'em." Whisper "You should have run away." Ray Stantz "All right, Youngblood. It's all you." A Cultist steals Key for Crypt Door. After some searching... Ray Stantz "There's the key! It's too heavy to carry ourselves. Get it back to the gate so we can keep going!" Grave Monster manifests and attacks. They unlock Crypt Door. Loading screen... Ray Stantz "Wait a minute. Ohh... I get it now. This has been bugging me. When the necromantic shockwave summoned Gozer back to our plane, why didn't he assume a more effective Destructor form immediately? I mean the Marshmallow Man is scary, sure, but there has to be a better way to destroy the world. It's simple... When he enters our plane of existence, he must be locked into that form from our first encounter. One Destructor form per god, per dimension, I like it! Sounds like the kind of symmetry these things tend to operate on. Hey, so maybe I didn't choose such a bad destructor after all, huh?" Ray and Rookie ascend stairwell. Ray Stantz "Look...up there. It's getting worse." Winston Zeddemore on radio "This isn't the Central Park I'm used to." Egon Spengler on radio "You still have your wallet?" Bell tolls. Ray Stantz "That means one of two things: either we're in trouble or we're dinner." Egon Spengler on radio "Is there a difference?" Winston Zeddemore on radio "Hey! We ever test the Proton Packs in the rain?" Egon Spengler on radio "That's what the Recruit is doing right now..." Ray Stantz "Great...wait a minute! I'm wearing one, too!" Egon Spengler on radio "That's true, Ray. How's it going so far? Do you smell any burning, or experience any painful tingling?" Ray Stantz "You'll be the first one to know. Or the second. Air strike! Take those flyers out! They're coming out of the ground! We gotta smash the coffins while they're airborne. Otherwise we have to deal with these! They ain't all graceful!" Grave Monsters attack. Ray Stantz "Come on, let's go! We need to get out of here. Come on, let's go!" Ecto 1-b on other side of fence. Peter Venkman "Well. Hello there." Winston Zeddemore "Ray! You guys alright? Man, there ain't nothing dead in this graveyard." Ray Stantz "Thanks for joining the party." Egon Spengler "They're throwing everything they have at us to stop us from getting to that mausoleum." Winston Zeddemore "That's as far as I can go. You guys gotta clear a path for me." Egon Spengler "Ray, readings here are extremely unstable. Energy from the mandala and the escaped ghosts is building up to a flash point. We don't have much time."
Rookie blasts control. Gate opens. Winston Zeddemore "Yeah, that's good! Thanks. Rollin' on." Ray Stantz "Well I guess we're goin' in there. We don't have a lot of choice. Man! The graves pushing up through here really did a number on this place. Walter Peck is gonna have a lot to answer to from the City Parks Department. If we can prevent the Apocalypse, that is. Watch out for those coffins! They're not all empty! Put the hose on 'em, rook!" Ecto 1-b stuck on other side of Stone Angel Gate. Peter Venkman "Yo! New guy!" Egon Spengler "We've tried everything. This metal is psychonically charged, rendering it effectively indestructible." Peter Venkman "Mm-hm." Egon Spengler "Well, in such an extreme situation, I suppose it's possible to cause it harm. But I don't think anything we have is going to make a dent in it." Peter Venkman "Then what's our plan?" Egon Spengler "Ray, you two check out that side." Ray Stantz "I think I'm picking up something odd here. What's your take on this? An indestructible gate attached to a damaged frame. A few concussive hits and the hinges might just break loose." Peter Venkman "Uh, 12 o'clock high." Stone Angels attack them. Egon Spengler "They're too well protected. Our energy streams aren't going to hurt them." Winston Zeddemore "Peter, go kick one." Ray Stantz "The only hope we have is to stay alive and keep them away from the Ecto." Winston Zeddemore "I wholeheartedly agree with Ray." Egon Spengler "More precisely, they're little stone angels, capable of attaining speeds of 198 feet per second before they hit their targets... which is us." Winston Zeddemore "Kamikaze Angels? Man, I'm going back to Sunday school." Ray Stantz "The particle throwers aren't doing anything to them! Tether them and smash them into something!" Egon Spengler "Looks like a good place for slime tethering!" Ray Stantz "Hook 'em together!" Winston Zeddemore "The kid's on to something! How about some slime tethering?!" Egon Spengler "We're close." Ray Stantz "Timber!!! Thanks for joining the party." Egon Spengler "I think we're getting close." Winston Zeddemore "Hey guys, a little help? I bet we can pull these gates down, too. Hey, Ray. Have we got a chain or winch for this thing?" Ray Stantz "I didn't plan for a fun-filled day of off-roading with Ecto-1. So no." Egon Spengler "The Tether might prove useful here." Winston Zeddemore "Okay, kid. Tether the gate to my bumper and I'll pull it down. Ok, good! Give me a few more, just to be sure. Damn! Thing of beauty!" Ray Stantz "This way, gentlemen." Peter Venkman "Thank you." Ray Stantz "Nicely done." Egon Spengler "I'm not sure going underground now is a good idea." Ray Stantz "Come on, Spengs. Getting there is the fun part." Egon Spengler "Careful! This matrix is becoming increasingly unstable!" Peter Venkman "Uh-oh!" Winston Zeddemore "Check that out." Ray Stantz "That's our next stop." Egon Spengler "Ever feel like you're being watched? Get ready! Same drill as before!" Winston Zeddemore "Hook me up, again! I'll take care of it. Move!" Eyes glow on door. Peter Venkman "Head's up!" Winston Zeddemore "Agh!" Ecto 1-b goes dead. Egon Spengler "At least the tethers held. My fault. Miscalculated." Ray Stantz "Winston!" Winston Zeddemore "(Heavy breath) Oh man! D-ahh! It's stuck! For real!" Ray Stantz "Ecto-1!" Winston Zeddemore "She's tough, but she took that pretty hard!" Ray Stantz "Can you get her rolling again?" Winston Zeddemore "Nah. Crickets. She's down for the count, guys." Ray Stantz "I hate leaving her here like this." Winston Zeddemore "I know it, Ray. This is definitely turning into a bad neighborhood. But we've got to keep moving. Guess we're walking from here." Egon Spengler "Some of us have been walking." Rumbling. Ray Stantz "Keep your eyes peeled!" Egon Spengler "I think we've got guests." Ray Stantz "I knew it!" Egon Spengler "I think we're going to wish we had that Super Slammer." Ray Stantz "Focus on the cultists! This is fantastic! It's like a monster mash!" Egon Spengler "Identify the Shandorian cultists and focus on them. It's their combined willpower that's protecting the mausoleum." Keyhead Monsters manifest and attack. Ray Stantz "What can unlock the gates?" Egon Spengler "Well, those glowing indentations are obviously keyholes." Peter Venkman "They are? Oh! Sure! I see it now!" Winston Zeddemore "Where are the keys then?" Egon Spengler "It may be possible to harness their interdimensional cranial energy source!" Ray Stantz "That's got to be the key!" Egon Spengler "Spectacular" Winston Zeddemore "The kid's on to something! Way to go!" The door opens. Ray Stantz "Great! Those fells turned out to be pretty helpful." Winston Zeddemore "This team can play! No doubt about it!" Peter Venkman "Exciting! And somehow risky!" Loading screen... Ilyssa is tied up. Peter Venkman "Wait! It's Ilyssa!" Peck is tied up above her. Peter Venkman "Can't we blast him? Just once really hard? Nobody's gonna know!" Egon Spengler "Easy Venkman everything points to Peck being a pawn." Mayor Mulligan "I couldn't have said it better myself." Ray Stantz "It's the Mayor." Peter Venkman "No Ray, it's not. It's Ivo Shandor." Winston Zeddemore "Shandor possessed the Mayor, turned Peck on us to slow us down. And when we shut down his mandala before he could get fully juiced, he hijacked our ghosts out of the containment unit as an alternate energy source." Mayor Mulligan/Ivo Shandor "Very good, and they say you're the slow one." Winston Zeddemore "Waaait, what? Who says that?" Peter Venkman "Everybody. What's the girl have to do with it?" Mayor Mulligan/Ivo Shandor "Taking her was necessary. To assume my own Destructor Form, I require blood. My blood." Ray Stantz "What about Gozer? I thought you built this all for him?" Mayor Mulligan/Ivo Shandor "I did, but he failed me. Twice. How he earned the title "The Destroyer" is beyond me. Anyway, I thought to myself... why worship a god when you can actually become one?" Peter Venkman "Slime him." They slime him. Shandor is wrangled out of the Mayor. Egon Spengler "He's too powerful! It'll take all of our streams!" Rookie blasts green glowing object. Winston Zeddemore "The kid's on to something! You're weakening it!" Ray Stantz "Okay, step one. Nice work! Almost there! Beat him down! Then get a capture stream on him! He's through! Now de-activate your pulse and we'll cross the streams with the blast function!" Egon Spengler "I can't shut down mine, Ray!" Peter Venkman "Me too! Me neither, I mean!" Winston Zeddemore "Who decided to reinforce these shoulder straps?! Yaaaahhhh!!" The Ghostbusters are pulled through the portal. Peter Venkman "Hey, Shandor! Where's your Destructor Form now? Leave it in your other suit?" Voice of Ivo Shandor "I have chosen! I am the destructor. I am the Architect!" Peter Venkman "*yawn* Was someone waken out of their nap?" Ray Stantz "Oh, no." Egon Spengler "That's very bad." Peter Venkman "The architect? Haha...that's not so scary. The contractor. That's who kills you!" Ray Stantz "Peter... you don't understand. He's the Architect, and he controls Ghostworld!" Egon Spengler "And he can come into our world. And what do architects do?" Peter Venkman "They...they dream?" Voice of Ivo Shandor "I will pave over your fields to start anew! I will fill your seas with concrete and stone!" Peter Venkman "Whoa take a break! Do you ever shut up?" Ray Stantz "Yeah...No! Listen!" Voice of Ivo Shandor "I will pierce your world with girders of steel and panes of glass!" Winston Zeddemore "That's just mean super villain threats, Ray. All those guys talk like that." Shandor, in Supreme Destructor Form, appears. Winston Zeddemore "It's protecting itself!" Egon Spengler "Don't let it recharge!" Ray Stantz "Flying skulls! Flying skulls! Look out!!!" Egon Spengler "It's using shielding!" Winston Zeddemore "It's getting stronger! Hey, more trouble!" Egon Spengler "It's time! Cross the streams!" Ivo Shandor "I am a god!" Egon Spengler "We eat gods for breakfast! I'm deactivating the cross-stream governor! I never thought I'd say this again! Cross the streams!" Ivo Shandor "Noooooooo!!!!" Ivo Shandor explodes and the Ghostbusters are shoved back the physical plane. 17. Cinematic Nine (After Level 8) ================================== Ray Stantz "We eat gods for breakfast?" Egon Spengler "Too much, you think?" Ray Stantz "No, I liked it." Peter frees Ilyssa. The mausoleum begins to tremble. Peter Venkman "I've got you." Walter Peck "Get me down from here! Please I'm begging you let me down!" Peter Venkman "New Guy. Your call." Rookie shoots Peck's restraints. Peck falls flat on his face. He stands up. Walter Peck "This is not the last you'll see of me!" They leave. Winston has the Mayor in his arms. The Mayor comes to. Mayor Mulligan "Ha, ha! The Ghostbusters! Hey, fellas! What are you doing here? Uh...what am I doing here? Uh... where is here?" Ray Stantz"You were the victim of a trans-dimensional possession, your Honor." Mayor Mulligan "Uh...what's that mean?" Winston Zeddemore "An evil ghost was walking around in your body for a few months." Mayor Mulligan "Oh. Did anyone notice? How's my approval rating?" Egon Spengler "Well, you got re-elected." Peter Venkman "By the way, you're a descendant of Shandor." Ilyssa Selwyn "Yeah...I kinda got that." They kiss. A familiar laugh is heard. Peter looks up. Ilyssa Selwyn "What?" Slimer slimes Ilyssa. Peter walks away. Ilyssa Selwyn "Venkman!" 18. End Credits Audio ===================== Credits roll. The following is audio only. Ecto-1b blares its siren. Crowds cheer and applaud for the Ghostbusters. Crowd "Ghostbusters! Ghostbusters! Ghostbusters! Ghostbusters! Ghostbusters! Ghostbusters! Ghostbusters! Ghostbusters!" Ray Stantz "Looks like things are going to be a little slow around here for awhile." Winston Zeddemore "Which means we might be heavy by one too many Ghostbusters in New York." Ilyssa Selwyn "Wait. You're not going to fire him after everything he's done?" Peter Venkman "No, of course not. Louis has been scouting locations and I think we're prepared to offer a potentially lucrative Ghostbusters franchise in Chicago, Los Angeles, or Cincinnati. I'll pick." Egon Spengler "So are you ready to expand the Ghostbusters family on a semi-equitable basis and be your own boss?" Peter Venkman "And wear a very cool uniform?" Winston Zeddemore "Financing is available." Ray Stantz "So, cadet. Whadya say?" The End. 19. Janine's Phone Calls =============================== Between levels at the Firehouse, there are new lines of dialogue from Janine, as she answers the phone, that you can listen to instead of completing the directive at hand such as finding Ray and Egon. Welcome to the Sedgewick There are 10 messages total. These messages are repeated as the game progresses. 1 Hello, Ghostbusters. Just one moment. I'm looking up your file. Mmm, mm-hmm. It did what?

What's the address? Fine. Goodbye. 3 Ghostbusters. No. Not at the present time. Goodbye. 4 Hello, Ghostbusters. Oh, hi. I don't think so. No. Really? Right. Right. Goodbye, 5 Ghostbusters, what do you want? Mmm, mm-hmm. Just one moment. I'm looking up your file. No. Not at the present time. Fine. 6 Ghostbusters, what do you want? Let me get a pen. Mmm, mm-hmm. Really? You did? I can schedule an appointment. Thank you so much for calling. 7 Hello, Ghostbusters. Just one moment. Let me get a pen. It did what? When did this occur? I can schedule an appointment. And a number where you can be reached? Thank you so much for calling. 8 Hello, Ghostbusters. Oh, hi. Yes. Mm-hmmm. You did? I don't think so. No. No. Goodbye. 9 Ghostbusters. Hold, please. 10 Ghostbusters, what do you want? Let me write this down. Mmm, mm-hmm. When did this occur? Mm-hmm. What's the address? And a number where you can be reached? I can schedule an appointment. All right. Goodbye. Checking Out The Library There are three new messages. 1 Ghostbusters, what do you want? We can schedule a visit, umm...next Thursday? Sometime between 8 A.M. and 4 P.M.? I'm afraid that's the soonest opening we have. All right, I've got you down for then. Oh it won't be necessary to call before they arrive. Believe me, you'll know it. That'll be fine. Goodbye. 2 Hello, Ghostbusters. Mmm, mm-hmm. No, we do not advise that you attempt to perform a Peruvian type-5 exorcism on yourself! Mm-hmm. But listen, listen, once you've tied yourself to the chair, it's very difficult to do that to the cat even if you could catch it. 3 Ghostbusters. Oh, hi. Are you serious, they did? Brent and Donna? He did?! Ugh, with Dylan right there?! What did Steve say? (gasps) You're kidding! Ugh, I know. The little tramp. Right. Right... I don't think so. Mmm, mm-hmm. Alright. Goodbye. Museum of Super(Natural) History There are two new messages 1 Hello, Ghostbusters. Yes. I don't think so. No. It didn't just stop working and it doesn't need toner! It literally exploded... after it screamed obscenities at me. No, I don't think the nature of our business has anything at all to do with whether or not you honor your product's warranty. Uh huh. So what you're telling me is that none of your other copiers that you've sold throughout the entire world have screamed and exploded before breaking down? Uh huh. Sir, I have to tell you that I find that very hard to believe. They are willing to believe you...but I wasn't born yesterday. No. Goodbye. 2 Ghostbusters. No. Mmm, mm-hmm. Okay. So cancel next Thursday then. But I ordered seven cases of Holy Water and you send an additional seven cases of... what is this stuff...?..."Dragon Blood"? Please. This is one of those bait and switch jobs, isn't it? Listen, seriously. This is not the company you want to fool with, Sir. Ghosts can be introduced into an environment just as easily as they can be extracted. And we just got in a couple of, let's see here... Large Taiwanese Terror Demons and... what? Keep the Dragon Blood free of charge? It's a gift? That's very nice of you. We'll do that. Alright. Thank you so much for calling. Return to the Sedgewick There are two new messages 1 Hello. Mmm, mm hmm. Oh you don't know the half of it. They have been racing in and out of here since that shockwave hit. How would I know? I'm just here trying to keep the lights on. Sure, I can ask what's going on but then they might actually tell me. What? Yeah I'd say it's pretty big. That shnook from the city isn't helping ease the tension either. Anyway. Going away for Thanksgiving might be on hold until things settle down...yeah, I know. But, we have to roll the Ghostbusters' way. Don't ask. Alright. Goodbye. 2 Hello, Ghostbusters. Oh yes, they're very busy right now. No. For the foreseeable future they are not available for weddings, Bar Mitzvahs, debutante balls, proms, supermarket openings, half-time shows, company retreats, car washes, book signings, talk show appearances or productivity seminars. And they definitely don't do birthday parties. Not at the present time. No. Goodbye. Central Park Cemetary There are two new messages 1 Oh, hi. Really? Mm-hmm. So I told him that if they start evacuating Manhattan, that I don't plan on coming in on Monday. And he says...and he says I've already used all my floating holidays this year... Right? I tell him, "Dr. Venkman. Catastrophic exodus of the city doesn't count as a floating holiday." No, it doesn't. I looked it up. So he hands me the employee handbook and tells me to look again, and that what is and isn't covered is very clearly defined. What? Yeah it was in there! In his handwriting...in pencil! He wrote it in when he asked me to get his coffee. Anyway. I can take a half-day on Monday if they evacuate the city. Alright. Goodbye. 2 Oh, hi. Mm-hmm. Well, if they go ahead with this franchise thing, I can tell you one thing - I am not shlepping out to Brooklyn or Philadelphia or God knows where every time someone needs a fresh pot of coffee. Right. Right... Thank you. Goodbye. 20. Firehouse Answering Machine =============================== At the start of the Welcome to the Hotel Sedgewick Level and after the Panic in Times Square Checking Out the Library, Museum of (Super)Natural History, and Lost Island Rising Levels, the Rookie can check the answering machine on a table up on the second floor in the lab area and listen to several sets of messages. Pre-Welcome to the Sedgewick There are 7 messages total 1/7 Male Caller Emergency! Please call me back now! Outside my window, I see multiple ghosts in my garbage. They look like hobos! 2/7 Manny Breitowitz Ghostbusters, this is Manny Breitowitz. So you guys sell ghosts, right? So how much for a dozen? Can you give them to me wholesale? Call me. Let's talk business. 3/7 Mark Hi, Janine. This is Mark. We met the other night at the "I have a crush on my boss but I'm afraid to tell them" seminar. I was wondering if you would be interested in a job as my personal assistant. Call me. 4/7 Ed Hi, this is Ed. I heard you are into the horror. I'm real good at catching things. Just the other day I climbed up a tree and rescued my neighbor's cat. Anyway, give me a call. You...you won't regret it. 5/7 Male Caller Ghostbusters, I think there's something fishy going on with the Teamsters working on the building next door. They're...they're floating and shooting rivet guns and cackling constantly. So, is it supernatural or some... union thing? 6/7 Missy Peter? Peter, pick up! I know you're there. This is Missy. From the airport last week, and the laundromat, and the roof of the ... Call me back. Peter, are you there? 7/7 Male Caller Hello? Is this Ghostbusters? Is your Containment Unit running? Well, you better catch it. Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! Hurry! Post-Panic in Times Square There are 13 messages total Note: Answering machine is accessible after everyone has gathered at Ecto-1b. 1/13 Walter Peck I hardly think you did an adequate job, you heel. Keep that up and you'll be out of this business in no time. 2/13 Male Caller Is this Ghostbusters? I'm trying to get some sleep over here but it's non-stop with all this screaming and moaning and opera singing and things flying around throwing rocks. Am I the only one in this city that has to get up for work tomorrow? Keep it down! 3/13 Male Caller Yes, what you feed ghosts? I have blue one. It nice. Want to keep it. Make do tricks. Maybe fetch vodka. Sake, no? 4/13 Male Caller So last night I come back from getting a cup of coffee and I find my truck upside down in the middle of Times Square. I know you're saving the city and all but do you think you could just take it a little easier? 5/13 Rennie Handrahan Rennie Handrahan with Comm Core Corp. Stay Puft Marshmallows are one of the many high quality products we make here at Comm Core. Frankly, we're outraged. You may have fooled the city with your little puppet show but not us! This company has worked over 75 years to cultivate the family friendly image of Mr. Stay Puft. He was modeled after somebody's uncle for crying out loud! And it wasn't all so you could go to war with him in downtown Manhattan! This is defamation of character on the grandest scale! You'll be hearing from us Ghostbusters! Have a sunny, funny Comm Core Corp day. 6/13 Male Caller Yeah, I was wondering. Is it safe to eat all this marshmallow goop that's covering my balcony. And as a follow-up question, what if I already did? 7/13 Haim Rodriguez Yeah, this is Haim Rodriguez. I just want to thank you for breaking up my kid's bar mitzvah. That was great. Cost me over 50 grand for one, a busted up ballroom, and a hotel manager that won't stop crying. FAN-TAS-TIC. It's all good. I'll just wait for my precious son to become a man for the second time. How does that sound? We'll just wait it out. Or you know, he'll probably be getting married in eight years or so and maybe you can come and destroy the wedding? Or maybe his son's bris? Ah, ah... Would you like to attend the Blessed Occasion with your lasers and your hollering? We look forward to it. Invitations will be in the mail. 8/13 Male Caller Oh, man! I just saw you guys on TV! Man, that marshmallow dude was all like "Blarg!" and "Psh-ka-blam!" And you guys were like all like "Not in my city!" "Za-pow!" "Free-Augh!" And people were like "Aah!" Aw, man. You guys are awesome! So, like... how's it going? 9/13 Gray Hannard Hello, this is Gray Hannard with Hannard & Hannard Attorneys at Law. I'm calling regarding the incident in which one of you opened fire on my client at the Sedgewick Hotel earlier this evening. It's really a shame. We've never seen such extensive soft tissue damage. Perhaps we can work something out. Call me back at your earliest convenience. 10/13 Dale This is Dale at Trottrove Rentalux Chocolates. I don't suppose you guys could know if there is a possibility of you guys fighting a Graham Cracker monster in the near future? 'Kay, cause if so, perhaps we can work a deal where Stay Puft could just be captured and not destroyed? Thanks. 11/13 Female Caller Dr. Venkman, you know who. I think I somehow left a pair of earrings at your place. And my shoes. Maybe my cat. I had a really great time. Call me. 12/13 Ron Fermell Hey, Ghostbusters, Ron Fermell out in sunny California. Do you guys have an agent yet? Hey, let me rephrase. I've been talking to the studios and I sort of let it slip that I'm representing you. There's big interest in a summer tent pole out here. I smell a bidding war. Give me a call. 13/13 Male Caller Yeah, hi, my house keeps telling me to get out. You think it means permanently of just... like for the weekend? Post-Checking Out the Library There are 13 messages total 1/13 Water Peck Excuse me, you're getting paid to catch ghosts. Not to blow the place to bits. 2/13 Male caller Ah, yeah. The lady down the hall is having trouble with some sort of Poltergeist. It keeps taking pictures of her coming out of the shower and mailing them to me. This needs to stop. Seriously. By the end of the month... three months to a year at the absolute latest. 3/13 Female caller Hello, I'm going to need you to come and remove the ghost of my husband in about 20 minutes if he doesn't haul his lumpy keister off the couch. He'll be easy to recognize, it's the fat lazy ghost that's not cutting the grass for the third weekend in a row. SHUT UP! Oh, and he's going to have a table lamp sticking out of his head. 4/13 Mr. Spektor This is Mr. Spektor at the Public Library. Who do we contact to remove the black goo from all over our break room? Please get back to us soon. It seems to be talking to us. And we think it's stealing money from the vending machines. Also, Mr. Stantz still has a number of books checked out that are overdue. The current fine is $417.42. ...Please, we just want them back. 5/13 Male caller Hey! Hey, guys! I was there in front of the library when you went in! Did you see me?! I was waiving at you! Did you see me waiving, bro?! I was wearing a sweet blue sweater! Did you guys see the guy in the blue sweater waiving?! That was me waiving!! You guys are awesome! Wicked awesome!! See you again soon. We're an awesome team!! 6/13 Male caller So...uhh...uh... I'm a little short on funds but I definitely got ghosts. Uh, you got some kind of home kit or something I can buy, uh, like some sort of sticky paper to lay down? 7/13 Edward Dumas Hi, this is Edward Dumas. I'm the general manager over at the Sultan Suites. Right down the street from the Sedgewick. Just wanted to thank you gents for your work over there. You guys must have done a real number on them. Our business has hehheheh quadrupled overnight. Uh, listen, come on over some time for dinner and drinks on the house. And go ahead and leave your backpacks and destruction at home, though. 'Kay? 8/13 James Dr. Spengler, this is James from We Ship It. Listen, you got to come down and pick up this package of Carpathian Dungbach Mold we've been holding for you. It's starting to spread. It's taken over half the dock and uh, I think it's singing! 9/13 Ed Hi, this is Ed again. Uh, I didn't hear back from you so I thought I'd just check in. Hello? Alright, since I past called I made my own Proton...eh... whatcha...Proton Pack out of some car batteries and wires. I didn't catch any ghosts with it but I don't need to be worrying about any pesky gophers in my garden taking my daisies no more. I have pictures if you want me to send them. Alright, get back to me. 10/13 Eddie Dyson Yeah, Eddie Dyson. I'm the super over at 1412 Lex. I got a toilet screaming in 9B, belching sofa in 9A, teddy bear with turrets in 11E, let me see, chairs moving around in 12C. You got a bulk rate? 11/13 Male caller Yeah, Dr. Venkman, about that "sum" you still owe. It is said when your pony doesn't run... believe me I know. Still unlike the horse in question, you have such a wonderful pair of functioning legs. Walk, walk, walk. Beware if anything sudden or blunt were to happen to them. The clock is ticking, Dr. Venkman. And you ain't exactly incognito these days. 12/13 Female caller Hello, there's blood dripping from my fireplace since, I don't know, last Christmas. If you're not available before the holidays, could recommend a good chimney sweep? 13/13 Male caller Help! There's a man, he's going to jump from the ledge! I called the fire department. You guys should really get here fast... in case they don't make it in time. Post-Museum of (Super)Natural History There are 11 messages total 1/11 Male caller You bums know you're on the clock, right? 2/11 Male caller Ghostbusters. Ghostbusters! Wooot! You cats rock, man! #1 fan right here. Epic certified. Rock on, busters! Somebody owes me nine grand to replace the awning that a bunch of ghost crap ripped off the building. Call me back. Seriously. 3/11 Female caller Hi, my nephew says it's, what?, culturally insensitive to try to banish the spirits of Native Americans during Thanksgiving. Is it okay if I ask them not to sit in my stuffing? 4/11 Male caller Who busts the Ghostbusters? Mwa ha ha ha ha ha ha! 5/11 Slate Wenzel Hello, Slate Wenzel. I was at the museum opening last night and seemed to have been possessed by a ghost from hell. Do you think you could put me in tough with her, please? Oh, thank you very much. 6/11 Male caller Ah..hello, Dr. Spengler. This is Gilgamir Electronic Supply. We have all the parts you requested. But a representative from the Mayor's office, a Mr. Peck has recently informed us that all invoices from you must be approved through his office first. We called him about your order and he just laughed then hang up. For all we know, he's still laughing. 7/11 Male caller I was just calling because I was really confused about something. Me and my buddies have been going fly fishing for years and never once had any trouble crossing the streams. 8/11 Male caller Hi, this is Speedy Delivery Pizza. We deliver anywhere, anytime. But we don't have any drivers willing to deliver to you. So you gotta come pick up your own. I got 2 Extra Large Sausage and 'Shrooms and a Mega Veggie-Way. Have a Speedy Delivery Day. 9/11 Female caller Hi, I hope I have the right number. I'm trying to find Ray's Occult Bookstore. The number there is out of service. Walpurgisnacht is coming up and I had some party favors on order. If you know anything about it, please let me know. We have an important guest coming up from... the Deep South. And nobody wants to disappoint him. Reach me at Westchester Coven #. 10/11 Professor Jones Professor Jones. Trying to find out information on the whereabouts of the Vigo painting. Do you have any idea what's happened to it? It's a priceless historical treasure. It belongs in a museum. 11/11 Uncle Raymond Hey, Winston. It's your Uncle Raymond. I'm coming to town and I want to see you. Break out the food. Turn on the TV. I'll call you later. Post-Lost Island Rising There are 8 messages total 1/8 Male caller Ahem. Insufficient. Don't you aspire to more? 2/8 Male caller Hello? Who am I to calling? Who am I going to call? Am I calling to you? Ghostbusters, ah yes! 3/8 Male caller Uh, Ghostbusters, we're having what you most likely call a "disturbance." You guys feel like uh stopping by when you got a minute? You know whenever it's "convenient"! 4/8 Male caller I don't know from no ghost but let me tell you this: getting the slimes on the train to work is a drag. What gets it out? Soda? 5/8 Male caller Egon, man. So, have you ever stopped to think? I mean, really think about how the ghosts feel all cramped up inside those little boxes of yours? That could be somebody's grandma in there, you know? It's not right. That kind of cruelty is a drag! Have a nice day, oppressors! 6/8 Stacy Hey, this is Stacy from the Vancool Hot but not too hot. Big tour coming up. We wondered if you guys do any stage lighting? 7/8 Female caller What's going on, Peter? Whose that girl I saw you with on the news? Little tramp! You told me you don't like brunettes. In face, you told me you actually can't see them. Their eyes don't register on the brunette wavelength spectrum. Is that even possible? 8/8 Sergeant Gloman Ah, Sergeant Gloman down at Harbor Patrol. Okay, so there wasn't an island in the Hudson. Then there was. Then there wasn't. So, guess who I'm calling first? 21. World of Gozer ================== Throughout the latter half of the Egyptian exhibits in Museum of (Super) Natural History, in both "The Ossuary" and "Board of Trustees" areas, the Rookie can listen to audio recordings for the World of Gozer exhibits by pressing the A button. When nearing a console box, the interact option will come up. While there are nine total, six total directly pertain to Gozer. The Ossuary area 1. Found in the room after the regular hallway stocked with Egyptian items and Black Slime. Look to the right of the entrance. "The World of Gozer is one shrouded in mystery and lore even to this modern day. The earliest known appearance of the secretive deity is in pre-Sumerian culture around 6000 B.C." 2. Also found in room after the regular hallway. Look to the right of the exit. "Gozer re-found popularity when he supposedly attacked New York City in 1984. Paranormal investigations and eliminations experts the Ghostbusters challenged and defeated Gozer in the many manifestations assumed, including the popular brand icon, the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man. Gozer--" 3. Also found in room after the regular hallway. Look along the left wall by the display cases. "In this burial chamber, this exhibit recreates Gozerian preparation of the dead. Perhaps for the first time in history, corpses were collected and stored in order to more easily contain and trap the released souls of the dead not entirely unlike the Containment Unit our very own Ghostbusters use." Board of Trustees area 4. Found at the end of the hallway to the right of the exit, after the first wave of Possessed Statues. "The armies of Tiamat defeated the Gozer Cult and the resulting mythology tells of the victorious Tiamat banishing Gozer from this world." 5. After kicking open the first door, look on the right wall on the first turn where the wave of Possessed Statues animated. "Gozer the Destroyer became Gozer the Traveler, voyaging to multiple worlds and conquering them. In a key aspect of the legend, Gozer allowed one hero from each world to choose its own Destructor Form. Gozer would then manifest in the chosen form to destroy and conquer that world. Gozer gained access to each world via the coupling of two demigod ambassadors, a Keymaster and a Gatekeeper. History only reveals the names of two of these minions, Vinz Clortho and Zuul. It is believed there are many others. Gozer the Destroyer--" 6. After the second sighting of the Chairman, look near the display by the side door that can't be opened. "Few historical records of this period exist and much of what we know about the time period relies on conjecture, legend, and unverified occultist text. Gozer was worshiped by a large Sumerian subculture dedicated to destruction and chaos. The Gozer Cult waged a long protracted war with the followers of Tiamant in the 4th millenium B.C." ================================================================================ II.
