DELETED SCENES

[Scene continued from "Nobel Prize Aspirations"]

INT. THE LAB -- DAY

As they enter, janitorial and maintenance personnel are busy dismantling their apparatus and equipment. DEAN YAEGER is supervising. Venkman confronts him.

VENKMAN
(shocked)
I trust you're moving us to a better space somewhere on campus.

DEAN YAEGER
No, we're moving you OFF CAMPUS. The Board of Regents has decided to terminate your grant. You are to vacate these premises immediately.

VENKMAN
This is preposterous! I demand an explanation.

DEAN YAEGER
Fine. This University will no longer continue any funding of any kind for your group's activities.

VENKMAN
But why? The students love us!

DEAN YAEGER
Dr. Venkman, we believe that the purpose of science is to serve mankind. You, however, seem to regard science as some kind of "dodge" or "hustle." Your theories are the worst kind of popular tripe, your methods are sloppy and your conclusions are highly questionable. You're a poor scientist, Dr. Venkman, and you have no place in this department or in this University.

VENKMAN
I see.

STANTZ
(to Venkman)
You said you floored 'em at the Regents' meeting.

VENKMAN
(righteous)
Ray, I apologize.
(looking at Dean Yaeger)
I guess my confidence in the Regents was misplaced. They did this to Galileo, too.

DEAN YAEGER
It could be worse, Dr. Venkman. They took the astronomer Phileas and staked his head to the town gate.
