The Real Ghostbusters (1986–1991)
Man: I'd like to welcome you to the studio.
Ray Stantz: Wow! This is really fantastic! It looks just like the real thing!
Man: That's why we wanted you here to advise us, make sure we're doing it right. After-all, this is your life story.
Peter Venkman (I): No problem. As long as you got the right people to play us. Admit it, Redford was dying to play me, right?
Man: Not exactly. Here's the cast list.
Winston Zeddemore (I): Murray, Aykroyd and Ramis? What's that - a law firm?
Ray Stantz: Oh, Peter. Will you tell me a bedtime story?
Peter Venkman: Okay. Once upon a time there were four Ghostbusters who were trying to catch the Boogeyman but they couldn't because one of them wouldn't shut up and go to sleep. The end.
Peter Venkman (I): It's times like this that I wish I'd listened to what my dad used to tell me.
Winston Zeddemore (I): Yeah? What was that?
Peter Venkman (I): I don't know. I never listened.
Peter: [during a dream] A good imagination is a joy forever.
Egon Spengler: Notice the vacant stare, the completely mindless look. That could only mean one thing.
Winston Zeddemore (I): She's from California?
Egon Spengler: No. She's been hypnotized.
Man: Would you be Mr. Raymond Stantz?
Egon Spengler: No, not by choice.
Egon Spengler: Sometimes I think the universe just waits for me to get cocky.
Egon Spengler: You know, we're all descendants from fish. It would be no trouble at all to flip back in time, find the fish you descended from, and stuff it into a Cuisinart.
Peter Venkman (I): This is almost as much fun as catching bowling balls with my teeth.
Egon Spengler: Peter, do you know how to set your proton pack on explosive overload?
Peter Venkman (I): No.
Egon Spengler: I do.
Peter Venkman (I): This is not fun! I've had fun! This isn't it!
Peter Venkman (I): [plugging in a wire] Let's see. I can never remember if it's positive to negative or positive to positive.
[the Ghostbusters respond to a false alarm]
Peter Venkman (I): We should have charged her for the call.
Winston Zeddemore (I): Come on, Peter. She was someone's grandmother.
Peter Venkman (I): As long as she wasn't mine.
Ray Stantz: [Falsetto voice] I think I shall never see a poem as lovely as a tree.
Peter Venkman (I): Ray's fine now.
[Egon takes Peter to the opera]
Peter Venkman (I): The Met? I thought you said the Mets.
[Peter and Egon are going to search for a troll in the Holland Tunnel]
Ray Stantz: [shouting] Remember there could be giant ants, like in Santa Clara, in 1950!
[Egon backs the car up and Peter rolls down the window]
Peter Venkman: Not funny.
Peter Venkman: He did it again! He slimed me in my sleep.
[Ray, Egon and Winston try holding Peter back]
Peter Venkman: Just let me zap him with the proton blaster. Please.
Egon Spengler: Woah, Peter. Just calm down and ask him why he was sleeping in your bed.
Peter Venkman: Okay, we'll try it your way. Slimer, come here. Why were you sleeping in my bed?
[Slimer quickly begins to explain to Peter that his night light burnt out and he didn't want to sleep by himself]
Peter Venkman: You mean to tell me that you couldn't sleep in your own bed because your night light burnt out and you didn't want to sleep by yourself? That's great.
Peter: [Peter singing in the shower when suddenly Slimer pours out of the faucet above and onto his head] Slimer! How about some privacy!
Peter: If I ever see another bug again it'll be too soon. Like I said before, the world would be better off without them.
Egon Spengler: That's not true, Peter. The world couldn't survive without insects.
Ray Stantz: That's right. Our whole eco-system depends on them. So give them a break, all right?
Peter: But they're all so ugly!
Winston Zeddemore (I): Look again, Peter!
[a brightly colored butterfly lands on Peter's nose]
Ray Stantz: You know, I think this could be the start of a beautiful friendship.
Ray Stantz: [Ray has just plowed through a pretzel stand to avoid an oncoming vehicle] That road hog!
Peter Venkman (I): [holding a bag of pretzels] Nice driving, Ray!
[then to a stunned Winston]
Peter Venkman (I): Pretzel?
[after a magic book zooms down a pit, as part of Vladimir's ceremony to summon an "Old One"]
Vladimir: Flee, before I destroy you all!
Dr. Peter Venkman: Excuse me, but did it occur to you that your best weapon against us was that book, and that now it's down there, and you, you're pretty much up here?
Vladimir: ...Good point.
