  • Peter Venkman: [yawn, footsteps on stairs] Janine! Any calls?

  • Janine Melnitz: Yes, I did...
  • Peter Venkman: And? Were there any calls?
  • Janine Melnitz: No.

  • Peter Venkman: Any packages?
  • Janine Melnitz: No.
  • Peter Venkman: Any mail?
  • Janine Melnitz: Let me check... Oh, no.
  • Peter Venkman: Any customers?
  • Janine Melnitz: No, Dr. Venkman.
  • Peter Venkman: [sigh, footsteps] It's a good job, isn't it? Type something, will you? We're paying you for this stuff! [chuckle, footsteps, pause] Don't stare at me, you got them bug eyes... [frightened gasp, footsteps, pause] Janine! [footsteps] Sorry about the bug eyes things. I'll be in my office.
  • Janine Melnitz: [sigh, footsteps, body resting into chair, startled gasp] Oh, hi there...
  • Egon Spengler: Hi... [pause] Your computer is set up to the network now.
  • Janine Melnitz: We have a network? Interesting... [pause] You're very handy. I can tell. I bet you like to read a lot, too.
  • Egon Spengler: [pause, sigh] Print is dead.
  • Janine Melnitz: There's always digital. I read a lot myself... online. Some people think I'm too intellectual, but I think learning's a fabulous way to spend your spare time. I also play racquetball. Do you have any hobbies?
  • Egon Spengler: [pause] I collect spores, molds, and fungus.
  • Dana Barrett: [door opens, footsteps, door closes] Hello? Oh. Excuse me. This, this is the Ghostbusters' office?
  • Janine Melnitz: Yes, it is. Can I help you?
  • Dana Barrett: I don't have an appointment. I'd like to talk to someone, please.
  • Peter Venkman: [distant clatter, distant rapid footsteps, clatter, rapid footsteps] I'm Peter Venkman. May I help you?
  • Janine Melnitz: [sigh] ...
  • Dana Barrett: Well, I don't know. What I'm about to say may sound a little unusual.
  • Peter Venkman: Oh, that's all we get day in, day out around this place. Come into my office, Miss-
  • Dana Barrett: Barrett, Dana Barrett.
  • [Focus Shift: Location: Ghostbusters HQ, Upstairs; Time: 23 minutes later]
  • Dana Barrett: And this voice said "Zool" And then I slammed the refrigerator door and I left. That was two days ago, and I haven't been back to my apartment.
  • Peter Venkman: Generally you don't see that kind of behavior in a major appliance. What do you think it was?
  • Dana Barrett: Well, if I knew what it was I wouldn't be here.
  • Peter Venkman: Egon, what do you think?
  • Egon Spengler: [screentap, screentap, pause, footsteps] She's telling the truth. At least, she thinks she is.
  • Dana Barrett: Well, of course I'm telling the truth! Who would make up a story like that?
  • Peter Venkman: Some are people who just want attention. Others, just nutballs who come in off the street.
  • Ray Stantz: You know what it could be? Past-life experience intruding on present time.
  • Egon Spengler: Hmm... Interesting. [pause, screentap] Could be erased memories stored in the collective unconscious. I wouldn't rule out clairvoyance or telepathic contact, either.
  • Dana Barrett: I'm sorry, I don't believe in any of those things.
  • Peter Venkman: Well, that's all right. I don't either. [chuckle] But there are some things we do. Standard procedures we carry out in a case like this which often bring us results.
  • Ray Stantz: Well, I could go down to the hall of records and check out the structural details in the building. Maybe the building itself has a history of psychic turbulence.
  • Peter Venkman: Right, go do that.
  • Egon Spengler: I could look for leads in the usual literature.
  • Ray Stantz: Spates Catalog.
  • Egon Spengler: Tobin's Spirit Guide.
  • Ray Stantz: Yeah, maybe try calling that friend of yours... The one that does research for that show.
  • Egon Spengler: Hmm... That's a long-shot, but I'll give her a try. Are you still in touch with Professor Blood.
  • Ray Stantz: Not so much, he hasn't returned any of my e-mails. I've got a contact with the FBI, though.
  • Peter Venkman: The FBI?
  • Ray Stantz: Yeah, Special Agent Willis. [pause] It's a long story. Remember when I was in the private sec-?
  • Peter Venkman: Tell you what. I'll take Miss Barrett back to her apartment and check her out-
  • Dana Barrett: ? [pause]
  • Peter Venkman: [nervous chuckle] I'll go check out Miss Barrett's apartment, okay?
  • Dana Barrett: Okay, thank you.
