Ghostbusters (1984) quotes

  • Are you troubled by strange noises in the middle of the night?
    Do you experience feelings of dread in your basement or attic?
    Have you or your family ever seen a spook, spectre, or ghost?
    If the answer is “yes,” then don’t wait another minute. Pick up the phone and call the professionals: Ghostbusters!
  • 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?
    Ah, if there’s a steady paycheck in it, I’ll believe anything you say.
  • Everything was fine with our system until the power grid was shut off by dickless here.
    They caused an explosion!
    Is this true?
    Yes it’s true…. This man has no dick.
  • 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.
  • Gozer the Traveler. He will come in one of the pre-chosen forms. During the rectification of the Vuldrini, the traveler came as a large and moving Torg! Then, during the third reconciliation of the last of the McKetrick supplicants, they chose a new form for him: that of a giant Slor! Many Shuvs and Zuuls knew what it was to be roasted in the depths of the Slor that day, I can tell you!
  • 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!
  • Personally, I liked the university. They gave us money and facilities, we didn’t have to produce anything! You’ve never been out of college! You don’t know what it’s like out there! I’ve WORKED in the private sector. They expect RESULTS!
  • Ray has gone bye-bye. Egon, what’ve you got left?
    Sorry, Venkman, I’m terrified beyond the capacity for rational thought.
  • Ray, when someone asks you if you’re a god, you say “YES”!
  • Symmetrical book stacking. Just like the Philadelphia mass turbulence of 1947.
    You’re right, no HUMAN BEING would stack books like this.
  • That’s the bedroom, but nothing ever happened in there.
    What a crime.
  • There is no Dana, only Zuul!
  • This city is headed for a disaster of biblical proportions.
    What do you mean, “biblical”?
    What he means is Old Testament, Mr. Mayor, real wrath of God type stuff.
    Fire and brimstone coming down from the skies! Rivers and seas boiling!
    Forty years of darkness! Earthquakes, volcanoes…
    The dead rising from the grave!
    Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together… MASS HYSTERIA!
  • This voice said “Zuul”. And then I slammed the refrigerator door and I left. That was two days ago and I haven’t been back to my apartment.
    Generally, you don’t see that kind of behavior in a major appliance.
  • We came, we saw, we kicked its ass!
  • You’re very handy, I can tell. I bet you like to read a lot, too.
    Print is dead.
    Oh, that’s very fascinating to me. I read a lot myself. Some people think I’m too intellectual but I think it’s a fabulous way to spend your spare time. I also play racquetball. Do you have any hobbies?
    I collect spores, molds, and fungus.
