  • Rene Ramirez: [sigh, footsteps on ladder, clatter] Well, there you go, Mr. Venkman. That ought to do it.
  • Peter Venkman: Oh, it's actually "doctor," pal.
  • Rene Ramirez: Really? [pause, chuckle] Okay, if you say so... Oh, I'm Rene, by the way.
  • Peter Venkman: You don't think it's too subtle, Rene? You don't think people are going to drive down and not see the sign?
  • Rene Ramirez: I think it's perfect... for two hundred bucks. You want a bigger sign, I want a bigger payment.
  • Peter Venkman: Yeah, okay, you go. Thanks.
  • Rene Ramirez: [scoff, clatter, footsteps] Take care, doc.
  • Ray Stantz: [car engine running, brakes squeaking]
  • Peter Venkman: Whoa! What are you- You can't park that here!
  • Ray Stantz: [car engine sputtering, car engine shuts off, car door opens with loud creak, clatter, footsteps] It's me. Everybody can relax, I found the car!
  • Peter Venkman: [scoff, footsteps] This old thing?
  • Ray Stantz: Yeah. It needs some some suspension work, and shocks, and brakes, brake pads, lining, steering box, transmission, rear end-
  • Peter Venkman: How much?
  • Ray Stantz: Only forty-eight hundred. And maybe new rings, also mufflers, a little wiring...
  • Peter Venkman: [groan, footsteps, door opens] Egon- Egon! Get out here and look at this piece of work Ray brought.
  • Egon Spengler: [footsteps] Hey Ray.
  • Ray Stantz: Yeah?
  • Egon Spengler: I was running the numbers from our last field test.
  • Ray Stantz: Oh, yeah, what'd you get?
  • Peter Venkman: Egon, before you get into that, maybe you have something to say about this thing.
  • Egon Spengler: This thing?
  • Peter Venkman: The car, Egon.
  • Egon Spengler: [pause] It is a hearse.
  • Peter Venkman: Yeah, Egon. Ray bought us a hearse.
  • Egon Spengler: I'm sure it's fine...
  • Peter Venkman: Fine?
  • Egon Spengler: What do you want from me, Peter? I'm not a "car guy." I don't even have a driver's license.
  • Peter Venkman: [scoff] How do you not have a driver's licence? Didn't you build a combustion engine at... six?
  • Egon Spengler: I don't see how those are related... So, Ray, if you'll look at these numbers-
  • [Focus Shift: Location: 30 m to the East]
  • Janine Melnitz: [footsteps] Oh, hey... Maybe you can help me. I'm looking for One-Ten North Moore Street.
  • Rene Ramirez: [pause] You're looking for the 'Ghostbusters'?
  • Janine Melnitz: Ghost- What? [pause] I just got this address from a wanted ad. It said they were hiring for a secretary.
  • Rene Ramirez: [chuckle, footsteps] Good luck, lady. Just keep walking the way you are. They're on the corner.
  • Janine Melnitz: Oh, okay... [footsteps] The corner? [footsteps] Did he say 'Ghostbusters'?
  • Peter Venkman: Okay, Ray, just pull the car in. We'll figure this out later... I guess if it has a paint job it might be all right. [footsteps] Oh, hey there, beautiful. You look lost. Can I help you?
  • Janine Melnitz: [footsteps] Is this One-Ten North Moore?
  • Peter Venkman: It is.
  • Janine Melnitz: Great! I'm here for the interview.
  • Ray Stantz: The interview? What interview?
  • Peter Venkman: [chuckle] Oh, Ray... You kidder. Just pull the car in. Let's take this inside. Please, Janine, follow me. [footsteps] Don't mind the dust. We're still doing some construction for the grand opening.
  • Janine Melnitz: [footsteps] Oh, I don't mind. [door closes]
  • Ray Stantz: You know about an interview?
  • Egon Spengler: First I'm hearing of it.
  • [footsteps: 2 instances, door closes, footsteps: 2 instances]
  • Peter Venkman: Hey guys, this is Janine. [paper rustling] She used to work for Oliver Queen. Pretty cool, huh?
  • Ray Stantz: Right, that's impressive, but Peter... Do we really need a... I'm sorry, but what's this interview for?
  • Egon Spengler: [footsteps, papers rustling] Secretary? What do we need a secretary for?
  • Peter Venkman: Answering the phones, filing the paperwork, balancing the books... And whatever else secretaries do.
  • Ray Stantz: I thought we agreed you would handle that stuff, Peter.
  • Peter Venkman: Right. I said I'd handle it. This is me handling it.
  • Janine Melnitz: [pause, chuckle] Okay, guys... If I may, [pause] let me level with you. I can tell you guys are headin' for ruin real fast. I don't know what you're even in the business of, but this whole set-up is wrong. People walk in and see all this lab equipment, they're going to get scared off. This can go upstairs, right? This entry area needs to be grounded and people friendly. You need a friendly face to greet the people who walk in. And this schmooze here is good with words, but look at that smile... [nervous giggle]
  • Peter Venkman: Wait, what's wrong with my smile?
  • Janine Melnitz: [footsteps] How about you two? Let's see your smiles. [pause, sigh] Awful...
  • Ray Stantz: Awful?
  • Janine Melnitz: You're cute, but you call that a smile? [sigh] Come on, handsome, turn that frown upside down for me, would ya? [pause] Y'know, frowning uses more muscles than smiling... Y'know, just sayin' is all...
  • Egon Spengler: That's actually false. A slight smile uses, on average, ten muscles. While a small frown uses only six.
  • Janine Melnitz: Fascinating... You're smart. I like that... [giggle] But the public won't. No, this guy and all his lab gear needs to be moved upstairs. You can't have this guy, as cute as he is, be the image of your company.
  • Ray Stantz: Uh-oh... That doesn't bode well for our commercials.
  • Janine Melnitz: [gasp] You guys put out commercials? Oh no... How bad is it? Who'd you get to direct?
  • Peter Venkman: [scoff] Excuse me, but I directed the videos. They're fine.
  • Janine Melnitz: Oi... [sigh, footsteps] Good luck!
  • Peter Venkman: You're leaving?
  • Janine Melnitz: Yeah... I hope it all works out for you. [footsteps, door opens, footsteps, door closes]
  • Peter Venkman: [scoff, footsteps] Yeah, well, don't let the door hit you on your way out! [footsteps, whack, clatter]
  • Egon Spengler: I think we should-
  • Ray Stantz: Yeah, we probably should-
  • [rapid footsteps: 2 instances, door opens, rapid footsteps: 2 instances, door closes]
  • Ray Stantz: Wait, wait!
  • Janine Melnitz: [quietly:] Hook, line, and sinker... [footsteps, pause] Yes? You boys need something?
  • Ray Stantz: You're right, miss... [pant] We're scientists. We don't know how to run a business. We need you. Please!
  • Janine Melnitz: What about your partner? Does he want me?
  • Egon Spengler: I agree with Ray. Your services would be greatly appreciated.
  • Janine Melnitz: Oh, well, when you put it that way... [giggle] Alright, I'll do it. [footsteps] Now, what is it you boys do?
  • Ray Stantz: We intend to use particle accelerators to produce electrical streams of protonic energy to neutralize, capture, and ultimately contain entities of spectral matter. Layman's terms: we catch ghosts... in theory.
  • Janine Melnitz: [pause] Okay... Y'know, I'm a little bit psychic myself. [pause] Oh, I really like the sign. Cute logo...
