A group of oddball scientists, Peter Venkman, Ray Stantz, and Egon Spengler, set out on a quest to save the world from pesky ghosts. Ghostbusters delivered some of the most entertaining movie quotes in the Eighties... Quoting just one line from the film usually leads to a humorous reminiscing of the timeless comedy classic! The movie also gave us the Stay Puft Marshallow Man, Slimer, and ECTO-1, one of the most iconic movie cars of all time! “Have you or your family ever seen a spook, specter or ghost? ...Don't wait another minute. ...Call the professionals.... Ghostbusters! We're ready to believe you!”
He slimed me. • Dr. Peter Venkman
Man at Elevator: What are you supposed to be, some kind of a cosmonaut?
Dr. Peter Venkman: No, we're exterminators. Someone saw a cockroach up on twelve.
Man at Elevator: That's gotta be some cockroach.
Dr. Peter Venkman: Bite your head off, man.
Dr Ray Stantz: [Entering elevator] Going up?
Man at Elevator: I'll take the next one.
Dr. Egon Spengler: This is big, Peter, this is very big. There is definitely something here.
Dr. Peter Venkman: Egon, this reminds me of the time you tried to drill a hole through your head. Remember that?
Dr. Egon Spengler: That would have worked if you hadn't stopped me.
Dr Ray Stantz: Gozer the Gozerian... good evening. As a duly designated representative of the City, County and State of New York, I order you to cease any and all supernatural activity and return forthwith to your place of origin or to the nearest convenient parallel dimension.
Dr. Peter Venkman: [Sarcastically] That oughta do it. Thanks very much, Ray.
That's a big Twinkie. • Winston Zeddemore
Dr. Peter Venkman: Ray has gone bye-bye, Egon... what've you got left?
Dr. Egon Spengler: Sorry, Venkman, I'm terrified beyond the capacity for rational thought.
Listen... do you smell something? • Dr. Ray Stantz
Janine Melnitz: Do you believe in UFOs, astral projections, mental telepathy, ESP, clairvoyance, spirit photography, telekinetic movement, full trance mediums, the Loch Ness monster and the theory of Atlantis?
Winston Zeddemore: Ah, if there's a steady paycheck in it, I'll believe anything you say.
I tried to think of the most harmless thing. Something I loved from my childhood. Something that could never ever possibly destroy us. Mr. Stay Puft! • Dr Ray Stantz
We came, we saw, we kicked its ass! • Dr. Peter Venkman
Ray. If someone asks if you are a god, you say, "yes!" • Winston Zeddemore
