IMAGES

These are screen captures from the film itself taken digitally from the 1999 DVD. They have all been left at their original anamorphic size of 838x349 (black bars cropped out) in the film's original widescreen aspect ratio of 2.40:1. The original base image size is 720x480, resampled into 852x480 square pixels - the maximum resolution possible. The montage cover shots have been taken from the 2009 Blu-ray due to the higher resolution picture. More full size images can be found on the Ghostbusters Home Video Image Comparison and Ghostbusters Blu-ray pages.

SPECIAL: Readable black & white copy of the USA Today cover taken from page 92 of Don Shay's "Making Ghostbusters" book. The book was missing the bottom seven lines of the cover, so I added that portion from the somewhat-readable Blu-ray screencap. Image dimensions are 1897x1483, with a file size of 476 Kb.

Male Student: What are you trying to prove here, anyway?
Peter: I'm studying the effect of negative reinforcement on ESP ability.
Male Student: The effect? I'll tell you what the effect is, IT'S PISSING ME OFF!


Peter: Back off man, I'm a scientist.


Ray: Listen! [musical sting] You smell something?


Ray: If the ionization rate is constant for all ectoplasmic entities, we could really bust some heads! In a spiritual sense, of course.


Peter: Will you guys relax? We are on the threshold of establishing THE indispensable defense science of the next decade - Professional Paranormal Investigations and Eliminations. The franchise rights alone will make us rich beyond our wildest dreams.


Ray: Are you troubled by strange noises in the middle of the night?
Egon: Do you experience feelings of dread in your basement or attic?
Peter: Have you or any of your family ever seen a spook, specter or ghost?
Ray: If the answer is yes, then don't wait another minute. Pick up your phone and call the professionals ...
All: Ghostbusters!
Ray: Our courteous and efficient staff is on call 24 hours a day to serve all your supernatural elimination needs.
All: We're ready to believe you!


Janine: We got one!
[alarm]


Ray: I think we better split up.
Egon: Good idea.
Peter: Yeah, we can do more damage that way.


Peter: It's right here, Ray. It's looking at me.


Ray: Venkman, what happened? Are you OK?
Peter: He slimed me.
Ray: That's great! Actual, physical contact.


Peter: I feel so funky!


Peter: OK, alright, alright, hold it, hold it, whoa, whoa, nice shootin' Tex.


Ray: Well, that wasn't such a chore, now was it?


Peter: We came, we saw, we kicked its ass!


Casey Kasem: Still making headlines all across the country, the Ghostbusters are at it again. This time, at the fashionable dance club, The Rose. The Boys In Grey slugged it out with a pretty pesky poltergeist, then stayed on to dance the night away with some of the lovely ladies who witnessed the disturbance. This is Casey Kasem, now on with the countdown.


Peter: 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. No job is too big, no fee is too big.


Janine: Do you believe in UFOs, astral projections, mental telepathy, ESP, clairvoyance, spirit photography, telekinetic movement, full transmediums, the Loch Ness monster and the theory of Atlantis?
Winston: Ahh ... if there's a steady paycheck in it, I'll believe anything you say.


Ray: When the light is green, the trap is clean.


Janine: Ghostbusters, what do you want?!


Walter Peck: Now you either show me what is down there or I come back with a court order.
Peter: You go get a court order, and I'll sue your ass for wrongful prosecution.
Walter Peck: You can have it your way, Mr. Venkman.


Dana: Are you the Keymaster?


Dana/Zuul: Do you want this body?
Peter: Is this a trick question?


Dana/Zuul: Take me now, subcreature.


Peter: I make it a rule never to get involved with possessed people.
[Dana kisses him passionately]
Peter: Actually it's more of a guideline than a rule.


Dana/Zuul: I want you inside me.
Peter: [laughs] Go ahead. No, I can't. Sounds like you got at least two people in there already. Might be a little crowded.


Dana/Zuul: There is no Dana, only Zuul.
Peter: What a lovely singing voice you must have.


Peter: I have some news from the world of Gozer.


Ray: Your girlfriend ... lives in the corner penthouse ... of spook central.


Ray: Everything was fine with our system, until the power grid was shut off by dickless here.
Walter Peck: They caused an explosion!
Mayor: Is this true?
Peter: Yes, it's true. This man has no dick.


Peter: Well, you could believe Mr. Pecker.
Walter Peck: My name is Peck.
Peter: Or you could accept the fact that this city is headed for a disaster of Biblical proportion.
Mayor: What do you mean "Biblical?"
Ray: What he means is Old Testament, Mr. Mayor. Real "Wrath of God"-type stuff. Fire and brimstone coming down from the sky, rivers and seas boiling ...
Egon: ... forty years of darkness, earthquakes, volcanos ...
Winston: ... the dead rising from the grave ...
Peter: ... human sacrifice, dogs and cats, living together, mass hysteria!


Peter: OK. So, she's a dog.


Gozer: Are you a god?


Peter: Alright, this chick is toast!!


Peter: Got your stick?
All: Pulled it!
Peter: Heat 'em up!
All: Smoking!
Peter: Make 'em hard!
All: Ready!
Peter: Let's show this prehistoric bitch how we do things downtown.


Peter: Well, there's something you don't see everyday.


Ray: Funny us going out like this -- killed by a hundred foot marshmellow man.
Peter: We've been going about this all wrong. This Mr. Stay-Puft is OK, he's a sailor, he's in New York. We get this guy laid we won't have any trouble.

Ray: We've gotta make contact. One of us should actually try to speak to it.
Egon: Good idea.
[they both look at Peter, who reluctantly agrees]
Peter: [to the ghost] Hello. I'm Peter. Where are you from... originally?
Library Ghost: Shhhh.
Peter: Ok, the usual stuff isn't working.

Dana Oh, hi.
Louis Oh, Dana, it's you!
Dana Oh, hi, yes Louis, it's me.
Louis I thought it was the drugstore.
Dana Oh, are you sick?
Louis Oh! No, no, I'm fine, I feel great! Just ordered some more vitamins and stuff. I was just exercising. I taped a 20-minute workout and played it back at high speed on my machine so it only took ten minutes. I got a great workout.
Dana Good.
Louis You wanna come in for a mineral water or something?
Dana Oh, I'd really like to, Louis, but I have to go rehearsal now. Excuse me.
Louis No sweat, I'll take a rain check on that. I always have plenty of low sodium mineral water and other nutritious foods in the house. But you already know that.
Dana Yeah, I know that.
Louis Listen, that reminds me, I'm having a big party for all my clients, my fourth anniversary as an accountant, you know, and even though you do your own tax return, which you shouldn't do, I'd like you to stop by, being that you're my neighbor and all -
Dana Well, thank you, Louis, I'll really try to stop by.
Louis Listen, that reminds me, you shouldn't leave your TV on so loud when you go out. The creep down the hall phoned the manager.
Dana That's strange, I didn't realize I'd left it on.
Louis Well, yeah, you know what I did? I climbed on the ledge and tried to disconnect the cable, but I couldn't get in, so you know what I did? I turned my TV up real loud too so everyone would think all our TVs had something wrong with them -
Dana Bye, Louis.
Louis Okay, so I'll see you later, huh?! I'll give you a call! I'm going to go have a shower.

Hotel Guest: What are you supposed to be, some kind of a cosmonaut?
Peter: No, we're exterminators. Somebody saw a cockroach up on twelve.
Hotel Guest: That's gotta be some cockroach.
Peter: Bite your head off man.
[The elevator arrives and the Ghostbusters get on it]
Ray: Going up?
Hotel Guest: I'll take the next one.
[on the elevator]
Ray: You know, it's occurred to me, we really haven't had a successful test of the equipment.
Egon: I blame myself.
Peter: So do I.
Ray: No sense worrying about it now.
Peter: Why worry? Each of us is wearing an unlicensed nuclear accelerator on his back.
Ray: Yeah. Let's get ready. Switch me on.
[Egon switches on Ray's proton pack as both he and Peter back away from it]
[The elevator stops at the twelfth floor. The Ghostbusters walk out of the elevator and into an empty hallway. The hotel maid rounds the corner with her cart. Startled, they fire their weapons at her.]
Peter: Whoa. Hold it.
Maid: What the hell are you doing?
Egon: Sorry. Sorry.
Ray: I'm sorry.
Peter: We thought you were someone else. [turns to the guys] Successful test.
Ray: I guess so. Ah, I think we better split up.
Egon: Good idea.
Peter: Yeah, we can do more damage that way.

Winston: What do you mean "big?"
[Egon picks up a Hostess Twinkie from the workbench.]
Egon: Well, let's say this Twinkie represents the normal amount of psychokinetic energy in the New York area. According to this morning's sample, it would be a Twinkie 35 feet long weighing approximately six hundred pounds.
Winston: That's a big Twinkie.

[Peter knocks on Dana's door. The door opens and Dana is standing there.]

Dana: Are you the Keymaster?
Peter: Not that I know of.
[She slams the door in his face. He knocks again, and she opens the door exactly as before.]
Dana: Are you the Keymaster?
Peter: Yes! I'm a friend of his. He told me to meet him here. I didn't get your name.
Dana: The name's Zuul. I am the Gatekeeper.
Peter: What are we doing today, Zuul?
Dana: We must prepare for the coming of Gozer.
[She walks into the bedroom, he follows]
Peter: Gozer, huh?
Dana: The Destructor.
Peter: Are we still going out? You know, you could pick up the place if you're expecting someone.
[She gets onto the bed]
Dana: [wantonly] Do you want this body?
Peter: Is this a trick question? I guess the roses worked?
Dana: Take me now, subcreature.
Peter: We never talk anymore.
[She pulls him down onto the bed and gets on top of him]
Peter: I make it a rule never to get involved with possessed people. [She kisses him passionately] Actually, it's more of a guideline than a rule. You know, I can...
[She flips him over on top of her]
Dana: I want you inside me.
Peter: [laughs] Go ahead. No, I can't. Sounds like you've got at least two people in there already. It might be a little crowded.

[they fire at Gozer, who leaps and flips over their heads]
Peter: Nimble little minx, isn't she?
Egon: We better go full stream.
Ray: Aim for the flat top.
[they fire at her again, this time she disappears]
Peter: That wasn't so hard.
Ray: We neutronized it. You know what that means? A complete particle reversal.
Winston: Alright. We have the tools, we have the talent!
Peter: It's Miller time.

Peter: Got your stick?

Ray: Funny us going out like this -- killed by a hundred foot marshmellow man.
Peter: We've been going about this all wrong. This Mr. Stay-Puft is OK, he's a sailor, he's in New York. We get this guy laid we won't have any trouble.
Egon: I have a radical idea. The door swings both ways. We could reverse the particle flow through the gate.
Ray: How?
Egon: We'll cross the streams.
Peter: Excuse me, Egon. You said crossing the streams was BAD.
Ray: Cross the streams.
Peter: You're gonna endanger us. You're gonna endanger our client - the nice lady who paid us in advance before she became a dog.
Egon: Not necessarily. There's definitely a very slim we'll survive.
[they all look at each other wondering if they should do it or not]
Peter: I love this plan. I'm excited to be a part of it. Let's do it!
Winston: This job is definitely not worth 11-5 a year.
