DELETED SCENES

Here are some deleted scenes from Ghostbusters along with script excerpts of the scenes. The written scenes below were taken from the final shooting script. What is written may vary from what is spoken by the actors. In some cases the scene still appears in the film, but I have some still photos of shots that were not used. In other cases, footage from the scene was used in the film in a completely different way (such as during the end credits). The list of scenes below is in order of how they would have appeared in the movie. Following that are some odds and ends that aren't full scenes, but were deleted from the film nonetheless. Finally, for the unused Ghostbusters theme songs, please see this Spook Central article.

Most of the alternate footage comes from the Blu-ray, except for:
• From the original ABC broadcast: 01a - No Pissing, New Shot; 05a - I Want You; 10a - Ten Hut!; 11a - No Shit.
• From the Theatrical Teaser: 09a - Biblical, alternate.
The original versions come from DVD, but have been cropped by me to fill as much of a 4:3 ratio as possible, so as to better compare to the 4:3 alternate footage.

Here are two screen captures of the new shot that was inserted to cover up the removal of the "It's pissing me off!" line:
