Dr. Raymond Stantz: [sigh of resignation] It's the Stay-Puft Marshmallow man.
Dr. Peter Venkman: [while seeing Stay-Puft walk towards the building and the Ghostbusters] Well, that's something you don't see every day.
Dr. Raymond Stantz: I tried to think of the most harmless thing. Something that I loved from my childhood. Something that would never ever possibly destroy us. Mr. Stay-Puft.

Man at Elevator: What are you supposed to be, some kind of a cosmonaut?
Dr. Peter Venkman: [chuckles] No, we're exterminators. Someone saw a ****roach up on twelfth [the twelfth floor].

Dr. Peter Venkman: Bite your head off, man.
Dr. Ray Stantz: [entering elevator] Going up?

Dr. Ray Stantz: Yeah. Well, let's get ready. Switch me on.
(Egon turns on Ray's pack. It emits a strange sound and begins humming. Egon backs away from it.)

Dr. Peter Venkman: I'm studying the effect of negative reinforcement on ESP ability.
Teenage Nerd: THE EFFECT?!! I'll tell you what the effect is! IT'S PISSING ME OFF!!!
Dr. Peter Venkman: Well then maybe my theory is correct!!!
Teenage Nerd: You can KEEP the five bucks, I'VE HAD IT!!
