    • Killerwatt: Turn the power on!

    • (Ecto-1 is possessed and ready to destroy the Ghostbusters)
      Peter: Okay--blast it!!

      Winston: Just what I always wanted to be: a hood ornament.
      Peter: I've got a plan! Hang on!
      Ray: I wouldn't dream of doing anything else!

    • Ray: Without power our containment unit will go belly-up in 60 seconds.
      Janine: What does that mean?
      Peter: It means that if you have any vacation time, take it now.

    • Janine: Egon, you're such a genius.
      Egon: (deadpan) Yes. I know.

    • Egon: We're dealing with possessed hardware.
      Peter: Then let's test out their warranties.

    • Peter: Don't go away, folks. We'll be right back before your credit cards cool off.

  • NOTES (1)

    • Goof -in the department store when it shows the ghosts surrounding them there is a ghost trap already open. The next scene Peter yells throw the trap and Winston throws a trap in the same spot and opens it.


    • Peter: Uh-oh, Mikey likes it.

      A reference to a Life Cereal ad from the 1970s. Mikey was a kid that didn't like anything, except Life Cereal. The commercial coined the phrase, "He likes it! Hey, Mikey!" Peter uses it here negatively when Killerwatt absorbs the Ghostbusters' proton streams.
