    • TRIVIA (1)

    • QUOTES (4)

      • (The Ghostbusters are falling from high into the river)
        Peter: At this speed hitting the water will be like hitting concrete!
        Egon: Aim at the water and cross the streams!
        Winston: Are you nuts?!
        Egon: Just do it!!
        Peter: Might as well go out with a bang...
        (Ghostbusters cross the streams, allowing a water column to come up and catch them, allowing them to enter the water safely)
        Winston:(As the Ghostbusters are climbing out of the river) Pretty fancy, Egon. How did you know crossing the stream would do that?
        Egon: I didn't.
        Peter: Say WHAT?!?!
        Egon: I just figured - couldn't hurt.
        (Peter moves menancingly towards Egon...)

      • [Captain Steel has just changed into his secret identity, that of a mild mannered public accountant]
        Ray: Wow!
        Peter: That's it? He just changed his clothes and put on a pair of glasses!
        Winston: Hey - don't knock it, it works.
        Peter: I hope Dr. Destructo is nearsighted...

      • Ray: [after seeing Captain Steel in the air] Look, up in the sky!
        Winston: I can't believe he said that.

      • Peter: Sometimes I really hate this job.

    • NOTES (1)

      • During an interview, Michael Reaves said the following about the writing credit for this episode, "The writing credit is split between myself and Steve Perry, but that was a mistake on DIC's part -- I wrote the whole episode."

    • ALLUSIONS (2)

      • The appearance and name of the character Len Wolfman is based off comic writers Len Wein and Marv Wolfman, both of whom wrote for Supeman's owners, DC Comics, in the early to mid-80s.

      • Captain Steel is an allusion to the character of Superman, there are references to Superman all through the episode. For example Captain Steel's human disguise looks exactly like Clark Kent.
