“Flushing Phantom!”
    A flushing phantom has taken over a public toilet, and the Ghostbusters are called in to plumb the pipes.  What they find is a line leading to the bog of eternal stench, where the worst demons are tormented by a horrible smell for eternity.  It’s a dirty job, but someone’s got to do it.

“Dial M for Monster!”
    Egon’s test of new ghost detecting equipment registers a ghost inside the firehouse itself.  Egon and Peter investigate, only to learn the ghost is a distraction from the other ghosts trying to free their brethren from the containment unit.  With countless eyes all over them, Egon and Peter need to find a way to either slip past or bust the spook before the city is overrun with ghosts.  Again!

“The Lost and the Lonely” Part 4
    A ghost named Laurie flees from a terror with her friend, Michael.  Unfortunately, their foe catches up to them and recaptures Michael, but Laurie escapes, allowing her to find help for her friends underground.  Meanwhile, Ray receives an invite to his Junior High School reunion.  It’s not long after he leaves that Laurie appears at the firehouse and informs of the Ghostbusters of the creature she escaped from.  And to make matters worse, this creature, the Soul Catcher, resides underneath the abandoned hallways of Ray’s school!

“Dead True!”
    In WWII, the Captain of the HMS Princess Bride had lost an important chart and had to decide to wait for daylight or attempt to navigate a dangerous area full of reefs without sinking.  The ship received a message from the HMS Blue Panther how to get around and they succeeded.  It was only later they learned the Panther sunk in that very spot…20 years prior!
“Blimey!  It’s Slimer!”
    Aliens invade Earth and find Slimer and Face Ace.

FYI: “Dial M for Monster!” is a play on Dial M for Murder, a 1954 film by Alfred Hitchcock about an ex-tennis pro that wants to kill his wife that follows pretty closely to an English stage play of the same name by Frederick Knott.

    Page 11 “…and Ray’s stereo started to play ‘Tie a Yellow Ribbon Round the Old Oak Tree.’”
    This was a popular song by Dawn and Tony Orlando in 1973.
