Image
[Librarian] [Sees ghost and screams]

Image
[Song: Ghostbusters, by Ray Parker, Jr.] If there's something strange in your neighborhood
Image
Image
GHOST BUSTERS
Image
Who you gonna call
Image
Ghostbusters
If there's something weird and it don't look good
Who you gonna call
Ghostbusters

Image
[Paranormal Studies Laboratory]

[Someone has written on door: "Venkman Burn in Hell"]

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] All right, I'm gonna turn over the next card.
I want you to concentrate.
Image
I want you to tell me what you think it is.

Image
Image
[Male Student] Square.

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] Good guess, but wrong.

Image
[Administers Electric Shock]
Image

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] Clear your head.
Image
Image
All right. Tell me what you think it is.

Image
[Female Student] Is it a star?

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] It is a star. Very good. That's great.
Image
All right. Think hard.
What is it?

Image
[Male Student] Circle.

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] Close.
But definitely wrong.

Image
[Administers electric shock]

Image
[Male Student] [Candy pops out of his mouth]

[Dr. Peter Venkman] All right. Ready?

[Female Student] Yeah.

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] What is it?
Image
Image
Come on.

Image
[Female Student] Figure eight.

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] Incredible. That's five for five.
Image
You can't see these, can you?
Image
You're not cheating me, are you?

Image
[Female Student] No, I swear. They're just coming to me.

[Dr. Peter Venkman] You're kidding.
Image
Image
Nervous?

[Male Student] Yes.
Image
I don't like this.

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] You only have 75 more to go.
Okay? What's this one?

Image
[Male Student] It's a couple of wavy lines.

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] Sorry. This isn't your lucky day.

[Male Student] I know.

Image
[Administers Electric Shock]

Image
Image
[Male Student] [Screams] I'm getting a little tired of this!

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] You volunteered, didn't you? We're paying you, aren't we?

Image
[Male Student] Yeah, but I didn't know you would be giving me electric shocks!
What are you trying to prove here, anyway?

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] I'm studying the effect of negative reinforcement on ESP ability.

Image
[Male Student] I'll tell you what the effect is! It's pissing me off!

[Dr. Peter Venkman] Well then maybe my theory is correct.

Image
[Male Student] Keep the five bucks. I've had it!

[Dr. Peter Venkman] I will, mister.
Image
You may as well get used to that.
That's the kind of resentment that your ability ...
is going to provoke in some people.

[Female Student] Do you think I have it, Dr. Venkman?

[Dr. Peter Venkman] You're no fluke, Jennifer.

Image
[Dr. Raymond Stantz] [Barges in] This is it.
Image
This is definitely it.
Did those UV lenses come in for the video camera?
And that blank tape, I need it, the one you erased yesterday.

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] Will you excuse me for a second?

[Female Student] Sure.

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] I'm right in the middle of something, Ray!
Image
[Hits Ray over the head]
I need a little more time with this subject.
Image
Could you come back in an hour, an hour and a half?

Image
[Dr. Raymond Stantz] Peter, at 1:40 p.m., at the main branch ...
of the New York Public Library on Fifth Avenue ...
ten people witnessed ...
a free-floating, full-torso vaporous apparition.
It blew books off shelves from 20 feet away ...
and scared the socks off some poor librarian.

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] I'm very excited. I'm very pleased.
I want you to get right down there, check it out ...
and get back to me.

[Dr. Raymond Stantz] No, no.

[Dr. Peter Venkman] Get right back to me.

Image
[Dr. Raymond Stantz] No, you're coming with us on this one.
Spengler went down there.
Image
He took P.K.E. valances. Went right off the top of the scale.
Buried the needle. We're close on this one. I can feel it.

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] "I can feel it.
We're very, very close."
Image
I have to go now Jennifer, but I'd like to work with you some more.
Perhaps you could come back this evening, say at --

Image
[Female Student] Eight o'clock?

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] I was just gonna say, "Eight o'clock?"
You are a legitimate phenomenon.

***

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] As a friend I have to tell you,
Image
you've finally gone around the bend on this ghost business.
You guys have been running your ass off ...
meeting and greeting every schizo who says he has a paranormal experience.
What have you seen?

[Dr. Raymond Stantz] Of course, you forget, Peter ...
I was present at an undersea, unexplained mass sponge migration.

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] Ray, the sponges migrated about a foot and a half.

Image
Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] [Making weird ghost noises and banging book on library table]

Image
[Dr. Egon Spengler] Oh, you're here.

[Dr. Peter Venkman] Yeah, what have you got?

[Dr. Egon Spengler] This is big Peter.
Image
This is very big. There's definitely something here.

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] Egon, this reminds me of the time you tried to drill a hole through your head. Remember that?

[Dr. Egon Spengler] That would have worked if you hadn't stopped me.

Image
[Librarian Administrator] I'm Roger Delacorte. Are you the men from the university?

[Dr. Peter Venkman] Yes, I'm Dr. Venkman, Dr. Stantz, Egon.

[Library Administrator] Thank you for coming. I hope we can clear this up quickly and quietly.

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] Let's not rush things.
We don't even know what you have yet.

Image
[Librarian] [Laying down on table] I don't remember seeing any legs ...
Image
but it definitely had arms, because it reached out for me.

[Dr. Raymond Stantz] Arms? I can't wait to get a look at this thing.

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] Alice, I'm gonna ask you a couple of standard questions, okay?
Have you or any member of your family ...
ever been diagnosed schizophrenic, mentally incompetent?

Image
[Librarian] My uncle thought he was Saint Jerome.

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] I'd call that a big "yes."
Uh, are you habitually using drugs, stimulants, alcohol?

[Librarian] No!

[Dr. Peter Venkman] No. No. Just asking.
Image
Are you, Alice, menstruating right now?

[Librarian Administrator] What has that got to do with it?

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] Back off, man. I'm a scientist.

Image
[Dr. Egon Spengler] Ray. It's moving.
Image
Come on.

Image
Image
[Dr. Raymond Stantz] Look!

Image
[Dr. Egon Spengler] This is hot, Ray.

[Dr. Raymond Stantz] Symmetrical book stacking ...
Image
just like the Philadelphia mass turbulence of 1947.

[Dr. Peter Venkman] You're right. No human being would stack books like this.

Image
[Dr. Raymond Stantz] Listen!
Image
You smell something?
Image
Talk about telekinetic activity. Look at this mess!

[Dr. Egon Spengler] Raymond, look at this.

[Dr. Raymond Stantz] Ectoplasmic residue!

[Dr. Egon Spengler] Venkman, get a sample of this.

[Dr. Raymond Stantz] It's the real thing.

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] Somebody blows their nose, and you wanna keep it?

[Dr. Egon Spengler] I'd like to analyze it.

[Dr. Raymond Stantz] There's more over here.

Image
[Dr. Egon Spengler] I'm getting stronger readings here.

[Dr. Peter Venkman] Ugh! Ach!

Image
[Dr. Egon Spengler] This way.

[Dr. Raymond Stantz] Come on.

[Dr. Peter Venkman] [Throwing mucus around] Aargh! Gahh!
Image
Egon, your mucus.

Image
Image
[Bookcase falls down]

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] This happen to you before?

[Dr. Raymond Stantz] [Nods head no.]

[Dr. Peter Venkman] Oh! First time?

[Dr. Raymond Stantz] [Nods head yes.]

Image
[Dr. Egon Spengler] It's here.

Image
[Dr. Raymond Stantz] A full-torso apparition, and it's real.

[Dr. Peter Venkman] So what do we do?
Image
Could you come over here and talk to me for a second, please?
Would you just come over here for a second, please?
Right over here.
Image
Come here, Francine. Come here.
What do we do?

[Dr. Raymond Stantz] I don't know. What do you think?

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] [Hits Egon's P.K.E. Meter in his hand] Stop that!

Image
[Dr. Raymond Stantz] We've got to make contact. One of us should actually try to speak to it.

[Dr. Egon Spengler] Good idea.

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] [Speaking to ghost] Hello. I'm Peter.
Image
Image
Where are you from, originally?

Image
[Ghost] Shhhhhhhhhhh!

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] All right. Okay. The usual stuff isn't working.

[Dr. Raymond Stantz] Okay. I have a plan.
I know exactly what to do.
Image
Now stay close.
Stay close.
I know. Do exactly as I say.
Get ready. Ready? Get her!

Image
Image
Image
[Ghostbusters running out library door]

Image
[Library Administrator] Did you see it? What was it?

Image
We'll get back to you.

Part 2 of 9

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] [Laughing] "Get her!" That was your whole plan.
"Get her."
You were scientific.

Image
[Dr. Raymond Stantz] I just got overexcited.
But wasn't it incredible, Pete?
I mean, we actually touched the etheric plane.
You know what this could mean to the university?

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] Yeah, it's gonna be bigger than the microchip. Ray, I'm very excited.

[Dr. Egon Spengler] I wouldn't say the experience was completely wasted.
According to these new readings, I think we have an excellent chance ...
of actually catching a ghost and holding it indefinitely.

[Dr. Raymond Stantz] Well, this is great.
Image
If the ionization rate is constant for all ectoplasmic entities ...
we could really bust some heads ...
Image
in a spiritual sense, of course.

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] You serious about this catching a ghost?

[Dr. Egon Spengler] I'm always serious.

[Dr. Peter Venkman] Egon, I'm gonna take back some of the things I've said about you.
[Handing him money] You've -- you've earned it.
Image

[Ghostbusters entering their laboratory]

Image
[Dr. Raymond Stantz] The possibilities are limitless. Hey, Dean Yeager.

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] I trust you're moving us to better quarters on campus.

Image
[Dean Yeager] No, you are being moved off campus.
The Board of Regents has decided to terminate your grant.
You are to vacate these premises immediately.

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] This is preposterous. I demand an explanation.

[Dean Yeager] Fine.
Image
This university will no longer continue any funding of any kind ...
for your group's activities.

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] But the kids love us.

[Dean Yeager] Dr. Venkman.
We believe that the purpose of science is to serve mankind.
You, however, seem to regard science as some kind of dodge or hustle.
Image
Your theories are the worst kind of popular tripe ...
your methods are sloppy and your conclusions are highly questionable.
Image
You are a poor scientist ...
Dr. Venkman.

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] I see.

Image
[Dean Yeager] And you have no place in this department ...
Image
or in this university.

***

[Outside on campus]

Image
[Dr. Raymond Stantz] This is a major disgrace. Forget M.I.T. or Stanford now.
They wouldn't touch us with a ten-meter cattle prod.

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] You're always so concerned about your reputation.
Einstein did his best stuff when he was working as a patent clerk.

Image
[Dr. Raymond Stantz] You know how much a patent clerk earns?

[Dr. Peter Venkman] No!

[Dr. Raymond Stantz] Personally I like the university. They gave us money and facilities.
We didn't have to produce anything. You've never been out of college.
You don't know what it's like out there.
Image
I've worked in the private sector. They expect results.

[Dr. Peter Venkman] For whatever reasons, Ray ...
call it fate, call it luck ...
Image
call it karma ...
I believe that everything happens for a reason.
Image
I believe that we were destined to get thrown out of this dump.

[Dr. Raymond Stantz] For what purpose?

[Dr. Peter Venkman] To go into business for ourselves.

Image
[Dr. Raymond Stantz] This ecto-containment system that Spengler and I have in mind ...
is going to require a load of bread to capitalize.
Image
Where we gonna get the money?

[Dr. Peter Venkman] I don't know. I don't know.

***

Image
[Ghostbusters coming out of Manhattan City Bank]

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] You're never gonna regret this, Ray.

[Dr. Raymond Stantz] My parents left me that house. I was born there.

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] You're not gonna lose the house. Everybody has three mortgages nowadays.

Image
[Dr. Raymond Stantz] But at 19%? You didn't even bargain with the guy.

[Dr. Egon Spengler] Ray, for your information, the interest rate alone for the first five years ...
Image
comes to $95,000.

[Dr. Peter Venkman] Will you guys relax? We are on the threshold of establishing ...
the indispensable defense science of the next decade.
Professional Paranormal Investigations and Eliminations.
Image
The franchise rights alone ...
will make us rich beyond our wildest dreams.

***

Image
[Real Estate Woman] There's office space, sleeping quarters and showers on the next floor ...
Image
and there's a full kitchen on the top level.

[Dr. Peter Venkman] It just seems a little pricey for a unique fixer-upper opportunity, that's all.
What do you think, Egon?

Image
[Dr. Egon Spengler] I think this building should be condemned.
There's serious metal fatigue in all the load-bearing members ...|
the wiring is substandard, it's completely inadequate for our power needs ...
and the neighborhood is like a demilitarized zone.

Image
[Dr. Raymond Stantz] Hey, does this pole still work?
Image
Image
Wow! This place is great!
When can we move in? You gotta try this pole!
Image
I'm gonna get my stuff.
Image
Image
Hey! We should stay here, tonight. Sleep here. You know, try it out.

[Dr. Egon Spengler] [Shakes his head no.]

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] I think we'll take it.

[Real Estate Woman] Good.

Image
[Dana Barrett] [Entering her apartment building with groceries] [Sees neighbor outside elevator] Oh, hi!
[Walks down hallway]

Image
[Louis Tully] Oh, Dana, it's you.

[Dana Barrett] Oh, hi. Yes, Louis, it's me.

Image
[Louis Tully] I thought it was the drugstore.

[Dana Barrett] Oh, are you sick?

Image
[Louis Tully] Oh, no, no, I'm fine. I feel great. I just ordered some more vitamins and stuff.
Image
I was just exercising. I taped "20-Minute Workout" on my machine and ...
played it back at high speed. So it only took ten minutes.
I got a great workout.

[Dana Barrett] Good.

[Louis Tully] You wanna come in for a mineral water or something?

Image
[Dana Barrett] I'd really like to, Louis, but I have to go to rehearsal now. Excuse me.

[Louis Tully] No sweat.
Image
I'll take a rain check on that. I always have plenty of low-sodium mineral water and other nutritious foods in the house.
Image
But you already know that.

[Dana Barrett] Yeah, I know that.

[Louis Tully] Listen, that reminds me.
Image
I'm having a big party for all my clients.
My fourth anniversary as an accountant, you know.
And even though you do your own tax return -- which you shouldn't do -- I'd like you to stop by, being that you're my neighbor and all.

Image
[Dana Barrett] Well, thank you, Louis. I'll really try to stop by.

[Louis Tully] Listen, that reminds me.
Image
You shouldn't leave your TV on so loud when you go out.
The creep down the hall phoned the manager.

Image
[Dana Barrett] That's strange. I didn't realize I left it on.

[Louis Tully] Oh, yeah. You know what I did?
Image
I climbed on the ledge and tried to disconnect the cable ...
but I couldn't get in.
So you know what I did? I turned up my TV real loud too ...
Image
so everyone would think that both our TVs had something wrong with them.

[Dana Barrett] [Slams door in his face]

[Louis Tully] Okay, so I'll see you later, huh? I'll give you a call.
Image
I'm gonna have a shower.
Image
[He's locked out]

[Dana's TV is on]

Image
[TV] [Dr. Raymond Stantz] Are you troubled by strange noises in the middle of the night?

[TV] [Dr. Egon Spengler] Do you experience feelings of dread in your basement or attic?

[TV] [Dr. Peter Venkman] Have you or any of your family ever seen a spook, specter or ghost?

Image
[TV] [Dr. Raymond Stantz] If the answer is yes, then don't wait another minute. Pick up your phone and call the professionals.

Image
[TV] [Venkman, Stantz, Spengler] Ghostbusters!

Image
[TV] [Dr. Raymond Stantz] Our courteous and efficient staff is on call 24 hours a day ...
to serve all your supernatural elimination needs.

Image
[TV] [Venkman, Stantz, Spengler] We're ready to believe you!

Image
[Dana Barrett] [Turns TV off]
Image
[Humming in kitchen as she puts her groceries away]

Image
[Eggs start popping out of the container]

[Dana Barrett] [Gasps]

[Growling noises in refrigerator]

Image
[Dana Barrett] [Screams]

[Ghostbusters sign]

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] You don't think it's too subtle, Marty?
You don't think people are gonna drive down and not see the sign?

[Car siren]

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] You can't park that here.

Image
[Dr. Raymond Stantz] Everybody can relax. I found the car.
Needs some suspension work ...
and shocks and brakes --
brake pads, lining, steering box ...
transmission, rear end.

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] How much?

[Dr. Raymond Stantz] Only 4,800.
Maybe new rings, also mufflers, a little wiring.

Image
Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] Janine, any calls?

[Janine Meinitz] No.

[Dr. Peter Venkman] Any messages?

[Janine Meinitz] No.

[Dr. Peter Venkman] Any customers?

Image
[Janine Meinitz] No, Dr. Venkman.

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] Isn't it a good job?
Image
Type something, will you? We're paying for this stuff.
Image
Don't stare at me. You got bug eyes.
Janine! Sorry about the "bug eyes" thing. I'll be in my office.

Image
[Janine Meinitz] [Egon crawls out from under her desk] You're very handy. I can tell.
I bet you like to read a lot too.

Image
[Dr. Egon Spengler] Print is dead.

[Janine Meinitz] That's very fascinating to me.
I read a lot myself.
Image
Some people think I'm too intellectual ...
but I think it's a fabulous way ...
to spend your spare time.
Image
I also play racquetball. Do you have any hobbies?

Image
[Dr. Egon Spengler] I collect spores, molds and fungus.

***

Image
[Dana Barrett] Hello?
Image
Image
Image
Excuse me. This is the Ghostbuster's office?

[Janine Meinitz] Yes, it is. Can I help you?

[Dana Barrett] I don't have an appointment. I'd like to talk to someone please.

Image
Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] [Leaps out of his office] I'm Peter Venkman. May I help you?

[Dana Barrett] Um, well, I don't know. What I have to say may sound a little unusual.

[Dr. Peter Venkman] It's all we get, day in, day out, around this place.
Image
Come into my office, Miss --

Image
[Dana Barrett] Barrett. Dana Barrett.
[Dana is hooked up to machine]
Image
And this voice said, "Zuul," and then I slammed the refrigerator door ...
and I left.
Image
That was two days ago, and I haven't been back to my apartment.

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] Generally, you don't see that kind of behavior in a major appliance.
Image
What do you think it was?

[Dana Barrett] Well, if I knew what it was, I wouldn't be here.

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] Egon, what do you think?

Image
[Dr. Egon Spengler] She's telling the truth. At least she thinks she is.
Image

Image
[Dana Barrett] Well, of course I'm telling the truth.
Who would make up a story like that?

[Dr. Peter Venkman] Some are people who just want attention.
Image
Others are just nutballs who come in off the street.

[Dr. Raymond Stantz] Do you know what it could be?
Image
Past life experience intruding on present time.

Image
[Dr. Egon Spengler] Could be race memory ...
stored in the collective unconscious.
Image
I wouldn't rule out clairvoyance or telepathic contact either.

[Dana Barrett] [Covering face with hands] I'm sorry. I don't believe in any of those things.

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] Well, that's all right. I don't either.
Image
Image
But there are some things we do, standard procedures in a case like this, which often bring us results.

Image
[Dr. Raymond Stantz] Well, I could go to Hall of Records and check out the structural details in the building.
Maybe the building itself ...
has a history of psychic turbulence.

[Dr. Peter Venkman] Right. Good idea.

Image
[Dr. Egon Spengler] I could look for the name "Zuul" in the usual literature.

Image
[Dr. Raymond Stantz] "Spates Catalog."

[Dr. Egon Spengler] "Tobin Spirit Guide."

[Dr. Peter Venkman] I'll tell you what.
Image
I'll take Miss Barrett back to her apartment and check her out.
Image
Image
I'll go check out Miss Barrett's apartment. Okay?

[Dana Barrett] Okay.
Thank you.
Image

***

Image
Image
Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] [Entering Dana's apartment] Let me.
If something's gonna happen, I want it to happen to me first.
Image
[Barges into closet]

[Dana Barrett] That's the closet.

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] [Plays piano keys]
Image
They hate this.
I like to torture 'em. That's right, boys.
Image
It's Dr. Venkman.
Image
[Pumping his machine "thing"]
Image
A lot of space.
Just you?

[Dana Barrett] Yes.

[Dr. Peter Venkman] Good.

[Dana Barrett] What is that thing you're doing?

[Dr. Peter Venkman] It's technical.
It's one of our little toys.


Image
[Dana Barrett] I see.
Image
[Peter going into bedroom] That's the bedroom, but nothing ever happened in there.

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] What a crime.

Image
[Dana Barrett] You know, you don't act like a scientist.

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] They're usually pretty stiff.

[Dana Barrett] You're more like a game show host.

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] That's the kitchen, huh?

[Dana Barrett] [Nods head yes.]

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] Dana, are these the eggs?

[Dana Barrett] Yes.
You see, I was over there, and these eggs just jumped right our of their shells ...
and started to cook on the counter.

[Dr. Peter Venkman] That is weird.

[Dana Barrett] And that's when I started to hear ...
Image
that awful noise coming from the refrigerator.
Dr. Venkman, you've come all this way. Would you like to check the refrigerator?

[Dr. Peter Venkman] Better check the fridge. Good call.
Image
Oh, my God.
Look at all the junk food.

Image
[Dana Barrett] Goddamn it! Look, this wasn't --

[Dr. Peter Venkman] You actually eat this stuff?

[Dana Barrett] Look, this wasn't here. There was nothing here.
Image
There was a space and there was a building or something with flames coming out of it ...
and there were creatures writhing around.
They were growling and snarling.
Image
And there were flames, and I heard a voice say, "Zuul."
It was right here.

[Dr. Peter Venkman] I'm sorry.
Image
I'm just not getting any reading.

[Dana Barrett] Well, are you sure you're using that thing correctly?

[Dr. Venkman] Well, there's nothing ... I think so ...
but I'm sure there are no animals in there.

Image
[Dana Barrett] Well that's great. Either I have a monster in my kitchen or I'm completely crazy.

[Dr. Peter Venkman] I don't think you're crazy.

Image
[Dana Barrett] Oh, good. That makes me feel so much better.

[Dr. Peter Venkman] Let me tell you something about myself.
Image
I come home from work, to my place, and all I have is my work.
There's nothing else in my life.

[Dana Barrett] Dr. Venkman.

[Dr. Peter Venkman] I meet you, and I say, "My God, there's someone with the same problem I have."

Image
[Dana Barrett] Yes, we both have the same problem. You.

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] I'm gonna go for broke.
Image
I am madly in love with you.

Image
[Dana Barrett] I don't believe this. Will you please leave?

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] And then she threw me out of her life.
She thought I was a creep, she thought I was a geek, and she probably wasn't the first.

Image
[Dana Barrett] You are so odd.
No!

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] I've got it!

[Dana Barrett] No, no, no, no, no.

[Dr. Peter Venkman] I'll prove myself to you.

Image
[Dana Barrett] That's not necessary.

[Dr. Peter Venkman] Yeah, I'll solve your little problem.

[Dana Barrett] Okay.

[Dr. Peter Venkman] And then you'll say, "Pete Venkman's a guy who can get things done."

[Dana Barrett] Right.

[Dr. Peter Venkman] "I wonder what makes him tick."

[Dana Barrett] I wonder.

[Dr. Peter Venkman] To our first customer.

[Dr. Raymond Stantz] To our first and only customer.

[Dr. Peter Venkman] I'm going to need to draw some petty cash. I should take her out to dinner.
We don't want to lose her.

[Dr. Raymond Stantz] This magnificent feast here represents the last of the petty cash.

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] Slow down. Chew your food.

Image
[Janine Meinitz] Hello, Ghostbusters.
Yes, of course they're serious.
You do?
You have?
No kidding.
Well, just give me the address.
Yes, of course. They'll be totally discreet.
Image
Thank you.
Image
We got one!

[Dr. Raymond Stantz] It's a call!

[Song: The Bus Boys: Cleanin' Up the Town] Gonna tell you a story about a little town I know

Image
[Dr. Raymond Stantz] Come on!

Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

[Song] They had a real big problem with some big mean local ghost
Those spooks were making the whole city lose control
Well the mayor was frantic, the town was panicked
'Cause they had no sense of fear
'Cause they knew that they were missing those boys with a mission
So they called them up I cheer
They went boxing and trapping and shooting through the joint
Stepped right in and got down to the point
Those Ghostbusters came in cleanin' up the town, oh yeah

[Dr. Peter Venkman] Hey, anybody see a ghost?

Image
[Hotel Manager] Thank you for coming so quickly.
The guests are starting to ask questions, and I'm running out of excuses.

[Dr. Raymond Stantz] Has it happened before?

[Hotel Manager] Well, most of the original staff knows about the 12th floor.
The disturbances, I mean.
But it's been quiet for years, up until two weeks ago.
Image
It was never ever this bad, though.

[Dr. Egon Spengler] Did you ever report it to anyone?

[Hotel Manager] Oh, heavens, no!

[Dr. Peter Venkman] No! Are you kidding?

[Hotel Manager] The owners don't like us to even talk about it.

[Dr. Peter Venkman] No!

[Hotel Manager] I hope we could take care of this quietly. Tonight.

[Dr. Peter Venkman] It's done.

[Dr. Raymond Stantz] Yes, sir. Don't worry.
We handle this kind of thing all the time.

[Ghostbusters waiting for elevator]

Image
[Man at Elevator] What are you supposed to be? Some kind of a cosmonaut?

[Dr. Peter Venkman] No, we're exterminators. Somebody saw a cockroach up on 12.

[Man at Elevator] That's gotta be some cockroach.

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] Bite your head off, man.

Image
[Dr. Raymond Stantz] Going up?

[Man at Elevator] I'll take the next one.

[Ghostbusters inside elevator]

Image
[Dr. Raymond Stantz] You know, it's just occurred to me ...
we really haven't had a completely successful test of this equipment.

[Dr. Egon Spengler] I blame myself.

[Dr. Peter Venkman] So do I.

[Dr. Raymond Stantz] No sense worrying about it now.

[Dr. Peter Venkman] Why worry?

Each of us is wearing an unlicensed nuclear accelerator on his back.

Successful test.

[Dr. Raymond Stantz] I guess so.
I think we better split up.

[Dr. Egon Spengler] Good idea.

[Dr. Peter Venkman] Yeah, we can do more damage that way.

It's looking at me.

Can you move?

[Walkie Talkie activated]

[Dr. Egon Spengler] Ray! Ray, come in, please.

[Dr. Peter Venkman] I feel so funky.

[Dr. Raymond Stantz] Spengler, I'm with Venkman.
He got slimed.

[Dr. Egon Spengler] That's great, Ray. Save some for me.
Get down here right away. It just went into a ballroom.

NEW YORK CITY
TODAY
EASTSIDE THEATRE GUILD
Midnight Buffet


In the conventional “Western” notion of Buddhism, the teachings of Buddha Gautama are regarded as a positive Eastern countermodel to the decadent civilization and culture of the West: where the Western world has introduced war and exploitation into world history, Buddhism stands for peace and freedom; whilst Western rationalism is destructive of life and the environment, the Eastern teachings of wisdom preserve and safeguard them. The meditation, compassion, composure, understanding, nonviolence, modesty, and spirituality of Asia stand in contrast to the actionism, egomania, unrest, indoctrination, violence, arrogance, and materialism of Europe and North America. Ex oriente lux—“light comes from the East”; in occidente nox—“darkness prevails in the West”.

We regard this juxtaposition of the Eastern and Western hemispheres as not just the “business” of naive believers and zealous Tibetan lamas. On the contrary, this comparison of values has become distributed among Western intelligentsia as a popular philosophical speculation in which they flirt with their own demise.


***

Written in a fantasy manner, the book NOS — Book of the Resurrection also depicts a tantric female sacrifice. The heroine of this “hermetic biography” is called Allouine, the main hero is admittedly [Miguel] Serrano. Additionally, various “tantric” masters crop up. Among them are, unmistakably, C.G. Jung, Hermann Hesse, and the American poet Ezra Pound. The contents of the book depict the voluntary self-sacrifice of Allouine, her interiorization as a maha mudra by the author (Serrano), and the latter’ achievement of immortality through the absorption of gynergy. “The woman dies. She is dead. She must die. ... She is the warrior’s [the yogi’s] companion, existing only in his mind, in his spirit” (Serrano, 1984, p. 11), Serrano instructs us once more. “She [the woman] becomes interiorized in you through her death, she inspires you”, one of his masters explains to him and in another passage continues: “The secret path of yoga along which you are traveling is only for the warrior, for the initiated hero. It is not the path for the woman; because a woman has no chakras, no kundalini to awaken. ... A woman is the Kundalini. A woman has no soul. She is the soul. A woman has no eternity. She is eternity” (Serrano, 1984, pp. 102, 147).

Serrano stages a tantric séance with Allouine, in which they both consume the five forbidden foods. Then he drinks “the liquor of orgasm ... the heavenly Soma, an spirit of secret wine ... which is now only to be found in the river of your blood” (Serrano, 1984, p. 112). We know that he is talking about the sukra, the mixture of male and female seed, of menstrual blood and sperm. This magic potion grants the Tantric immortality. In NOS too the author longs for the blood of his lover like a vampire and goes into raptures if he detects it on his lips. After he has washed the dying Allouine, he kisses her and drinks of her blood.

Yet Allouine patiently and will-lessly accepts her sacrifice: “My desire for you (i.e., for Serrano) is reaching its peak. The fire of sacrifice has already been lit in my vulva and beats there like a heart. ... My will no longer exists” (Serrano, 1984, p. 111). “The authentic, absolute woman sacrifices herself voluntarily,” we read in NOS, “immolating herself in order to give her eternity to her lover. ... The beloved is now the hidden beloved, she who has died and buried herself in your bones and your veins. The female Sophia, guru of the soul, she who courses through the blood, the female philosopher, Sophia, wisdom, the dove, gnosis” (Serrano, 1984, pp. 147-148). Dying, his “wisdom consort” says to him, “I shall but love thee better after death. I give you my eternity. … My beloved, you will be my coffin of perfumed, precious wood!” (Serrano, 1984, p. 140).

After he has internalized Allouine within himself, the Tantric Serrano can now overcome his EGO, he can now talk of NOS (WE), since his lover (maha mudra) will dwell in him for ever. Through this love, deadly for the woman, the man gains eternal life. In this context, Serrano plays upon the word AMOR, which does not just mean love, but also A-MOR, i.e., beyond death.

[Dr. Peter Venkman] It's okay. The table broke the fall.

Image
[Dr. Egon Spengler] There's something very important I forgot to tell you.

[Dr. Peter Venkman] What?

[Dr. Egon Spengler] Don't cross the streams.

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] Why?

Image
[Dr. Egon Spengler] It would be bad.

[Dr. Peter Venkman] I'm fuzzy on the good/bad thing. What do you mean, "bad"?

Image
[Dr. Egon Spengler] Try to imagine all life as you know it stopping instantaneously ...
and every molecule in your body exploding at the speed of light.

Image
[Dr. Raymond Stantz] Total protonic reversal.

[Dr. Peter Venkman] Right. That's bad.
Image
Okay. Right. Important safety tip. Thanks, Egon.
Alright. Ray, take the left. Egon, take the right.

Okay Ray. Give me one high and outside.

[Hotel Manager] [Speaking to woman] I assure you, Mrs. Van Houten,
Image
there is no problem with the room.
It will be ready promptly on time as soon as your guests are with us.

Image
[Dr. Raymond Stantz] The last throw took something out of him but he's gonna move.
I need some room to put the trap down.
Image
Give me some room.

[They turn over tables, table settings crash on floor]

Image
[Hotel Manager] [Hears crashing] [To Mrs. Van Houten] You'll excuse me, please?
Image

Image
Image
[Dr. Raymond Stantz] We gotta get this in the clear.

[Dr. Peter Venkman] Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait!
Image
I've always wanted to do this.
And ...
Image
Image
[Pulls tablecloth out from under table setting]
Image
The flowers are still standing!

Image
[Dr. Raymond Stantz] Okay, on my "go" signal ...
Spengler, I want a confinement stream from you, okay? Go!
Image
Okay, hold him up there. He's gonna move. Hold him up. Go!
Image

Image
[Dr. Egon Spengler] It's working, Ray.

[Dr. Raymond Stantz] Start bringing him down. Start bringing him down. You got him.
Don't cross the streams.

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] Maybe now you'll never slime a guy with a positron collider, huh?
Image

Image
[Dr. Egon Spengler] Venkman, shorten your stream. I don't want my face burned off.

Image
[Dr. Raymond Stantz] I'm opening the trap now. Don't look directly into the trap.
Image

Image
[Dr. Egon Spengler] Ray, I looked at the trap.

Image
Image
Image
[Dr. Raymond Stantz] Turn your streams off as soon as I close the trap.
Get ready! I'm closing it. Now!
Image
Image
Image

Image
[Dr. Egon Spengler] It's in there.

[Dr. Peter Venkman] Hey!

Image
[Dr. Raymond Stantz] Well, that wasn't such a chore now, was it?

Image
[Hotel Manager] [To Mr. Smith] Mr. Smith, quickly. I want that door open now! Stand over there.
Image

[Ghostbusters exit ballroom]

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] We came, we saw, we kicked its ass!

Image
[Hotel Manager] Did you see it? What is it?

Image
[Dr. Raymond Stantz] We got it!

[Hotel Manager] What is it? Will there be any more of them?

[Dr. Raymond Stantz] Sir, what you had there is what we refer to as ...
a focused, non-terminal repeating phantasm ...
or a Class-5 full-roaming vapor.
Real nasty one too.

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] And now ... let's talk seriously.
Now, for the entrapment ...
Image
we're gonna have to ask you for four big ones. $4,000 for that.
But we are having a special this week on proton charging ...
Image
and storage of the beast ...
and that's only going to come to $1,000 fortunately.

Image
[Hotel Manager] Five thousand dollars? I had no idea it'd be so much. I won't pay it.

[Dr. Peter Venkman] Well that's alright. We can just put it right back in there.

Image
[Dr. Raymond Stantz] Yes, we certainly can, Dr. Venkman.

Image
[Hotel Manager] [Grabbing Ray] No!
Image
All right. Anything.

[Dr. Peter Venkman] Thanks so much. Thank you.
Hope we can help you again. Coming through!
One Class-5 free-roaming vapor.

Image
Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] Well, I have Ph.D.s in parapsychology and psychology.

In Greek mythology, a little owl (Athene noctua) traditionally represents or accompanies Athena, the virgin goddess of wisdom, or Minerva, her syncretic incarnation in Roman mythology. Because of such association, the bird – often referred to as the "owl of Athena" or the "owl of Minerva" – has been used as a symbol of knowledge, wisdom, perspicacity and erudition throughout the Western world.

once you catch them?

[Walter Peck] And would this storage facility be located on these premises?

[Dr. Peter Venkman] Yes.

[Walter Peck] And may I see this storage facility?

[Dr. Peter Venkman] No.

[Walter Peck] And why not, Mr. Venkman?

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] Because you did not use the magic word.

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] Please.

Image
[Walter Peck] May I please see the storage facility, Mr. Venkman?

[Dr. Peter Venkman] Why do you want to see the storage facility?

[Walter Peck] Because I'm curious.
I want to know more about what you do here.
Frankly, there have been a lot of wild stories in the media.
And we want to assess any possible environmental impact ...
from your operation.
Image
For instance, the presence of noxious, possibly hazardous waste ...
chemicals in your basement.
Now, you either show me what is down there ...
or I come back with a court order.

[Winston Zeddmore] Tell him about the Twinkie.

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] What about the Twinkie?

[Dana Barrett sneaking down her apartment hallway]

Image
[Louis Tully] Oh Dana, it's you.

[Dana Barrett] Hello, Louis.

[Louis Tully] You gotta come in here. You're missing a classic party.

[Dana Barrett] Yes, well I would, Louis, but I have a date coming over.

[Louis Tully] You made a date? Tonight?

Image
[Dana Barrett] Well, I'm sorry, Louis. I forgot.

Image
[Louis Tully] Well, that's okay. You can bring him along.

Image
[Dana Barrett] All right. Maybe we'll stop by. Okay?

[Louis Tully] That's great. I'll tell everybody you're coming.
Image
We're gonna play Twister, we're gonna do some break dancing.
[Dana Barrett slams door in his face]
Image
[At his own door] Hey, let me in! It's Louis! Somebody let me in!

[Thunder and lightning]

Image
[Dana's Telephone rings]

Image
[Dana Barrett] Hello? Oh, hi, Mom.
I've been busy.
Well, no, everything is fine.
No, just that one time.
Oh, I am.
I will.
I won't.
Mom, I have to go. I have a date.
Yes. No one you know.
Well, he's a Ghostbuster.
Those guys on TV.
Yes, well I'll have to let you know.
Image
Okay. Love to Dad. Right. Bye. Bye.

[Louis's Party]

Image
[Woman at Party] Do you have any Excedrin or extra-strength Tylenol?

[Louis Tully] Oh, gee. I think all I got is acetylsalicylic acid. Generic.
Image
See, I can get 600 tablets of that for the same price as 300 of a name brand.
That makes good financial sense. Good advice.
Image
[To Partygoers] Hey, this is real smoked salmon from Nova Scotia, Canada.
$24.95 a pound.
It only cost me $14.23 after tax though.
Image
[To Marv] I'm giving this whole thing as a promotional expense.
That's why I invited clients instead of friends. Are you having a good time, Marv?
Image
[To other partygoers] How you doing? Why don't you have some of the Brie. It's at room temperature.
Image
[To Tall Woman] Do you think it's too warm in here for the Brie?

[Tall woman at party] Louis, I'm going home.

Image
[Louis Tully] Don't leave yet. Listen, maybe if we start dancing, other people will join in.

Image
[Tall Woman at Party] Okay.

[Doorbell rings]

Image
[Louis Tully] Oh, don't move. I just gotta get the door.
Image
[Opens door] Ted! Annette! I'm glad you could come. How you doing?
Give me your coats.
Everybody, this is Ted and Annette Fleming.
Image
Ted has a small carpet cleaning business in receivership.
Annette's drawing a salary from a deferred bonus from two years ago.
Image
They got $ 15,000 left on the house at 8%.
Image
Image
So they're okay.
[Tosses coats into bedroom on dragon]

[Dr. Peter Venkman] [Arriving] Hey, what happened?

Image
[Policeman] Some moron brought a cougar to a party, and it went berserk.

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] [To Doorman] Hi. I'm going up to Dana Barrett's.

[Doorman] Okay.

[Policeman in Tully's apartment] How do you spell that?

[Woman at Party] "T-U-L-L-Y."

Image
[Policeman in Tully's apartment] Is he still here?

[Woman at Party] No, he ran out.

Image
Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] [knocks on Dana's door] [Dana opens it] Hello.
Image
Image
That's a different look for you, isn't it?

Image
[Dana Barrett] Are you the Keymaster?

[Dr. Peter Venkman] Not that I know of.

Image
[Dana slams door in his face]

Image
Image
[Peter Venkman] [knocks on door again]

Image
[Dana Barrett] Are you the Keymaster?

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] Yes.
Image
I'm a friend of his. He told me to meet him here.
Image
I didn't get your name.

[Dana Barrett] I am Zuul. I am the Gatekeeper.

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] Oh.
Image
What are we doing today, Zuul?

[Dana Barrett] We must prepare for the coming of Gozer.

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] Gozer, huh?

Image
[Dana Barrett] The Destructor.

Image
Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] Are we still going out?
You know, you could pick up the place if you're expecting someone.

Image
[Dana Barrett] [Laying on her bed] Do you want this body?

[Dr. Peter Venkman] Is this a trick question?
Image
I guess the roses worked, huh?

Image
[Dana Barrett] Take me now, subcreature.

[Dr. Peter Venkman] We never talk anymore.
Image
Whoa. Easy, easy.
I make it a rule never to get involved ...
Image
with possessed people.
Image
Image
Actually, it's more of a guideline than a rule.
You know I can --

Image
[Dana Barrett] I want you inside me.

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] [Laughing] Go ahead. No, I can't.
Sounds like you've got at least two people in there already.
Image
Might be a little crowded.
Image
Come on, why don't you just quit trying ...
to upset and disturb Dr. Venkman and just relax?
Image
Lie down there. Relax.
Put your hands on your chest.
What I'd really like to do is talk to Dana.
Image
I want to talk to Dana.
Dana? It's Peter.

Image
[Dana Barrett] There is no Dana. There is only Zuul.

[Dr. Peter Venkman] Oh, Zuulie, you nut. Now, come on.
Come on. I want to talk to Dana.
Dana.
Just relax. Come on.
Dana. Dana. Can I talk to Dana?

Image
[Dana Barrett] [Man's voice] There is no Dana, only Zuul.

[Dr. Peter Venkman] What a lovely singing voice you must have.
Image
Now, I'm going to count to three, Zuulie, and if I don't get to talk to Dana ...
Image
Image
there's going to be some real trouble in this apartment, I think.
One.

Image
[Dana Barrett] [Growling]

[Dr. Peter Venkman] Two.

[Dr. Peter Venkman] Two and a half.

Part 6 of 9

[Ghostbuster headquarters]

Image
[Policeman knocking at door]

Image
[Janine Melnitz] Dropping off or picking up?

[Policeman] Dropping off.

[Janine Melnitz] Just a moment.

[Dr. Egon Spengler comes out]

Image
[Policeman] You a Ghostbuster?

[Dr. Egon Spengler] Yes.

[Policeman] We picked up this guy. Now we don't know what to do with him.
Bellevue doesn't want him, and I'm afraid to put him in the lockup.
And I know you guys are into this stuff, so I figured we'd check with you.

Image
[Dr. Egon Spengler] All right.

Image
[Louis Tully] Are you the Gatekeeper?

Image
[Egon's P.K.E. Meter registers activity from Louis]

Image
[Dr. Egon Spengler] You better bring him inside.

Image
[Janine Melnitz] You are so kind to take care of that man.
You know, you're a real humanitarian.

Image
[Dr. Egon Spengler] I don't think he's human.

Image
[Louis is hooked up to machine]

Image
Image
[Dr. Egon Spengler] What did you say your name was?

Image
[Louis Tully] Vinz Clortho, Keymaster of Gozer.

Image
[Janine Melnitz] According to this, his name is Louis Tully.
Lives on Central Park West.
Do you want some coffee, Mr. Tully?

Image
[Louis Tully] Do I?

[Dr. Egon Spengler] Yes, have some.

[Louis Tully] Yes, have some.

[Dr. Egon Spengler] Vinz, you said before you were waiting for a sign.
Image
What sign are you waiting for?

Image
[Louis Tully] Gozer the Traveller. He will come in one of the pre-chosen forms.
During the rectification of the Vuldronaii, the Traveller came as a large and moving Torb!
Then, during the third reconciliation of the last of the Meketrex supplicants ...
they chose a new form for him, that of a giant Sloar!
Many Shubs and Zuuls knew what it was to be roasted ...
Image
in the depths of the Sloar that day, I can tell you.

[Janine Melnitz] Egon?

[Dr. Egon Spengler] Excuse me.

Image
[Janine Melnitz] There's something very strange about that man.
Image
Listen, I'm usually very psychic ...
Image
and I have a terrible feeling that something awful's going to happen to you.
Image
Image
Image
I'm afraid you're gonna die.
Image

[Telephone rings]

Image
[Dr. Egon Spengler] I'll get it.
Hello?

[Dr. Peter Venkman] Egon, it's Peter.

[Louis Tully grabs telephone]

Image
[Dr. Egon Spengler] [To Louis] Thanks. I've got it.

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] I have some news from the world of Gozer.

[Dr. Egon Spengler] What is it, Peter?

[Dr. Peter Venkman] I'm here with Dana Barrett.
It seems the Goz has been putting some moves on my would-be girlfriend.

[Dr. Egon Spengler] How is she?

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] I think we can get her a guest shot on "Wild Kingdom."
I just whacked her up with about 300 cc's of Thorazine.
Image
She's going to take a little nap now, but she says she's the Gatekeeper.
Does that make any sense to you?

[Dr. Egon Spengler] Some.
I just met the Keymaster. He's here with me now.

[Dr. Peter Venkman] Oh, wonderful.
We have to get these two together.

[Louis Tully smells popcorn jar]
Image

Image
[Dr. Egon Spengler] I think that would be extraordinarily dangerous.

[Dr. Peter Venkman] Okay, well hold on to him. I'll be there in a little while.

[Dr. Egon Spengler] Good.

[Louis Tully hands Egon a skillet]

Image
[Dr. Egon Spengler] Thank you, Vinz.
Image
We have to find Ray. I need him here immediately.

Image
[Louis Tully hands Egon a lamp]

[Dr. Peter Venkman] [To Dana] Bad news, honey.
Image
I gotta go to work.
Image
Hey, will you stay here in bed until I get back?

[Ghostbuster car traveling down freeway]

Image
[Winston Zeddmore] Hey, Ray.
Do you believe in God?

[Dr. Raymond Stantz] Never met him.

Image
[Winston Zeddmore] Yeah, well, I do.
And I love Jesus' style, you know?

Image
[Dr. Raymond Stantz] This roof cap is made of a magnesium-tungsten alloy.

[Winston Zeddmore] What are you so involved with there?

[Dr. Raymond Stantz] These are the blueprints for the structural ironwork in Dana Barrett's apartment building ...
and they're very, very strange.

[Winston Zeddmore] Hey, Ray.
Image
Do you remember something in the Bible about ...
the last days when the dead would rise from the grave?

[Dr. Raymond Stantz] I remember Revelations 7:12.
Image
"And I looked as he opened the sixth seal ...
and behold, there was a great earthquake;
and the sun became as black as sackcloth ...
and the moon became as blood."

Image
[Winston Zeddmore] "And the seas boiled, and the skies fell."

[Dr. Raymond Stantz] Judgment Day.

[Winston Zeddmore] Judgment Day.

Image
[Dr. Raymond Stantz] Every ancient religion has its own myth about the end of the world.

[Winston Zeddmore] Myth!
Ray, has it ever occurred to you ...
that maybe the reason we've been so busy lately ...
Image
is because the dead have been rising from the grave.

Image
[Dr. Raymond Stantz] How about a little music?

[Winston Zeddmore] Yeah.

[Walter Peck] [Arriving with sherriffs] This way.

Image
[Janine Melnitz] Excuse me.
Excuse me! Just where do you think you're going?

[Walter Peck] Step aside, miss, or I'll have you arrested for interfering with a police officer.

Image
[Janine Melnitz] Oh, no! Hold on. I've seen TV.
I know you can't come in here without a warrant or a writ or something.

Image
[Walter Peck] [Hands her manila envelope] Cease and desist all commerce order, seizure of premises and chattels ...
ban on the use of public utilities for nonlicensed waste handlers ...
Image
and a federal entry and inspection order.
Image

Image
[Dr. Egon Spengler] Vinz, there's one more test I'd like to perform.

[Janine Melnitz] [Coming downstairs] Egon!
Image
I tried to stop them. He says they have a warrant.

[Dr. Egon Spengler] [To Peck] Excuse me. This is private property.

Image
[Walter Peck] [To Con Edison man] Shut this off. Shut these all off.

Image
[Dr. Egon Spengler] I'm warning you. Turning off these machines would be extremely hazardous.

Image
[Walter Peck] I'll tell you what's hazardous. You're facing federal prosecution for at least a half a dozen environmental violations.
Now, either you shut off these beams, or we shut them off for you.
Image

Image
[Dr. Egon Spengler] Try to understand. This is a high-voltage, laser containment system.
Simply turning it off would be like dropping a bomb on the city.

Image
[Walter Peck] Don't patronize me! I'm not grotesquely stupid like the people you bilk.

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] [Arrives in taxi, sees policemen outside] [Goes downstairs] At ease, Officer. I'm Peter Venkman. I think there's just been a slight misunderstanding.
And I want to cooperate in any way that I can.

[Walter Peck] Forget it, Venkman.
Image
You had your chance to cooperate, but you thought it would be more fun to insult me.
Well now it is my turn, wiseass.

Image
[Dr. Egon Spengler] He wants to shut down the protection grid, Peter.

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] You shut that thing down, and we are not going to be held responsible for whatever happens.

[Walter Peck] On the contrary, you will be held responsible.

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] No, we won't be responsible.

[Walter Peck] Shut it off!

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] Don't shut it off. I'm warning you.

Image
[Con Edison Man] Uh, I've never seen anything like this before. I don't know --

[Walter Peck] Well, I'm not interested in your opinion. Just shut it off.

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] [To Con Edison guy] My friend, don't be a jerk.

Image
[Policeman] Step aside.

Image
[Walter Peck] If he does that again, you can shoot him.

Image
[Policeman] [To Walter Peck] You do your job, pencil neck. Don't tell me how to do mine.

[Dr. Egon Spengler] Storage facility blew. He shut off the protection grid.

[Dr. Raymond Spengler] Oh, great.

[Winston Zeddmore] That's bad, isn't it?

Image
[Dr. Raymond Stantz] Yeah.

[Dr. Peter Venkman] Where's the Keymaster?

[Dr. Egon Spengler] Shit!

[Dr. Raymond Stantz] Who's the Keymaster?

Image
[Dr. Egon Spengler] Come on! [Collides with Peck]

Image
[Walter Peck] Hold it! I want this man arrested.

Captain, these men are in criminal violation of the Environmental Protection Act!

Hey, I just work with these guys. I mean, I wasn't even there!

[Dr. Egon Spengler] The structure of this roof cap is exactly like ...
Image
the kind of telemetry tracker that NASA uses ...
to identify dead pulsars in deep space.

Image
[Dr. Raymond Stantz] Cold-riveted girders ...
with cores of pure selenium.

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] Everybody getting this so far?
Image
So what? I guess they just don't make them like they used to, huh?

Image
[Dr. Raymond Stantz] [Hits Venkman upside the head] No! Nobody ever made them like this.
I mean, the architect was either a certified genius or an authentic wacko.

[Dr. Peter Venkman] Ray ...
for a moment ...
Image
pretend that I don't know anything about ...
metallurgy, engineering or physics ...
and just tell me what the hell is going on.

Image
[Dr. Raymond Stantz] You never studied.
Image
The whole building is ...
a huge, super conductive antenna ....
that was designed and built expressly for the purpose ...
Image
of pulling in and concentrating spiritual turbulence.
Your girlfriend lives ...
Image
in the corner penthouse of Spook Central.

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] She's not my girlfriend.
I find her interesting because she's a client and because she sleeps above her covers.
Image
Four feet above her covers.
Image
She barks. She drools. She claws.
Image

Image
[Dr. Egon Spengler] It's not the girl, Peter. It's the building.
Something terrible is about to enter our world ...
and this building is obviously the door.
The architect's name was Ivo Shandor.
I found it in "Tobin's Spirit Guide."
He was also a doctor. Performed a lot of unnecessary surgery.
And then in 1920, he started a secret society.

Barchenko developed guidelines for his commune, which he named United Labor Brotherhood (ULB). His friends Otto, Ricks, Leismaier-Schwarz, and Vladimirov, the former Cheka/OGPU officers, or "checkers" as Mesmacher jokingly dubbed them, were also part of this project. Although kicked out of the secret police, Vladimirov continued on his own to report diligently to his former service on all his friends. To his credit, in these secret updates, full of gossip, he never slandered Barchenko.

The goal of ULB was to foster a community of people who, through studying mysticism and philosophy as well as working on traditional crafts as a team, would spiritually upgrade themselves. The blueprint for ULB was G. I. Gurdjieff's United Labor Commonwealth, which Barchenko learned of from his close friend [lawyer] Peter Shandarovsky, a former member of Gurdjieff's circle who chose to remain in Russia. Barchenko's brotherhood had two ranks: students and brothers. In order to reach the brothers' level one had to exercise rigorous spiritual discipline and live by the highest moral standards. The first step in this direction was renouncing property, which was not a controversial issue -- in Red Russia private property was scorned as evil anyway. Despite being a leader, Barchenko modestly stated that he was still a student. A good esoteric commune had to have its own symbols, and ULB was no exception. The symbol of a brother was a red rose with a white lily petal and a cross, symbols of full harmony. The rose and the cross were borrowed from the Rosicrucian tradition; the lily came from Musurgia Universalis by Athanasius Kircher (1602-80), a German Jesuit esoteric scholar. A black-and-white hexagon was the symbol of a student, meaning that students still had to work hard to tune their lives to universal rhythm and harmony.

-- Red Shambhala: Magic, Prophecy, and Geopolitics in the Heart of Asia, by Andrei Znamenski


[Dr. Peter Venkman] Let me guess.
Image
Gozer worshipers.

[Dr. Egon Spengler] Right.

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] [To Ray] No studying.

Image
[Dr. Egon Spengler] After the first world war, Shandor decided that society was too sick to survive.
And he wasn't alone. He had close to 1,000 followers when he died.
They conducted rituals up on the roof.
Image
Bizarre rituals intended to bring about the end of the world ...
and now it looks like it may actually happen.

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] [Singing] So be good for goodness sake
Whoa ...
Image
Somebody's coming

[Dr. Raymond Stantz] We have to get out of here.
We've got to go to a judge or something.

Image
[Winston Zeddmore] Hey, wait a minute! Hey, hey, hey! Hey, hey! Hold it!
Are we actually going to go before a federal judge
and say that some moldy Babylonian god ...
is going to drop into Central Park West and start tearing up the city?

[Dr. Egon Spengler] Sumerian, not Babylonian.

[Dr. Peter Venkman] Yeah, big difference.

Image
[Winston Zeddmore] No offense, but I got to get my own lawyer.

Image
[Jail Guard] Okay, Ghostbusters, the mayor wants to see you guys.
The whole island's going crazy. Let's go.

Part 7 of 9

Image
[Mayor] I've got a city blowing up, and you guys are not giving me any answers.

[Police Commissioner] We're blocking the bridges, the roads. What else are we going to do?

Image
[Mayor's Aide] The Ghostbusters are here, Mr. Mayor.

[Mayor] Ghostbusters. Okay, the Ghostbusters.
Image
Hey, where's this Peck?

[Walter Peck] Hey!
Image
I am Walter Peck, sir, and I'm prepared to make a full report.
These men are consummate snowball artists.
They use sense and nerve gases to induce hallucinations.
People think they're seeing ghosts.
Image
And they call these bozos who conveniently show up ...
to deal with the problem with a fake, electronic light show.

Image
[Dr. Raymond Stantz] Everything was fine with our system until the power grid was shut off by Dickless here.

Image
[Walter Peck] They caused an explosion.

Image
[Mayor] Is this true?

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] Yes, it's true. This man has no dick.

Image
[Peck attacks Peter]

Image
[Mayor] Break it up.
Come on.

Image
[Walter Peck] All right.

[Dr. Peter Venkman] Well, that's what I heard!

[Mayor] This is City Hall.
Now what am I going to do here, John? What is this?

[Fire Commissioner] All I know is that was no light show we saw this morning.
Image
I've seen every form of combustion known to man ...
but this beats the hell out of me.

Image
[Police Commissioner] The walls in the 53rd precinct were bleeding.

How do you explain that?

[Archbishop] [Enters] Good afternoon, gentlemen.

Image
[Mayor] Oh, Your Eminence.
Image
Image
[Kisses his ring]

[Archbishop] How are you, Lenny?

Image
[Mayor] You're looking good, Mike. We're in a real fix here.
What do you think I should do?

[Archbishop] Lenny, officially the church will not take any position ...
on the religious implications of these phenomena.
Personally, Lenny ...
Image
I think it's a sign from God.
But don't quote me on that.

Image
[Mayor] I think that's a smart move, Mike.
Image
I'm not going to call a press conference and tell everyone to start praying.

Image
[Winston Zeddmore] I'm Winston Zeddmore, Your Honor.
I've only been with the company for a couple of weeks ...
But I gotta tell you, these things are real.
Image
Since I joined these men, I have seen shit that'll turn you white.

Image
[Police Commissioner blanches]

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] [To Mayor] Well, you can believe Mr. Pecker --

Image
[Walter Peck] My name is "Peck."

[Dr. Peter Venkman] ... or you could accept the fact that this city ...
Image
is headed for a disaster of Biblical proportions.

Image
[Mayor] What do you mean, "biblical"?

[Dr. Raymond Stantz] What he means is Old Testament, Mr. Mayor.
Image
Real wrath of God type stuff.

[Dr. Peter Venkman] Exactly.

[Dr. Raymond Stantz] Fire and brimstone coming down from the skies.
Rivers and seas boiling.

[Dr. Egon Stengler] Forty years of darkness!
Image
Earthquakes, volcanoes!

[Winston Zeddmore] The dead rising from the grave.

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] Human sacrifice! Dogs and cats living together. Mass hysteria!

Image
[Mayor] Enough! I get the point.
But what if you're wrong?

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] If I'm wrong, nothing happens! We go to jail.
Peacefully, quietly. We'll enjoy it.
But if I'm right ...
and we can stop this thing ...
Lenny ...
Image
you will have saved the lives ...
of millions of registered voters.

Image
[Archbishop] [Nods head yes.]

Image
[Walter Peck] I don't believe you're seriously considering listening to these men.

Image
[Mayor] Get him out of here.

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] [To Peck] Bye.

Image
[Walter Peck] I'll fix you, Venkman. I'm going to fix you.

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] I'm going to get you a nice fruit basket. I'm going to miss him.

Image
[Mayor] We got work to do. Now what do you need from me?

Part 8 of 9

[Inside apartment house]

[Ghostbusters climbing long stairs]

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] Where are we?

[Dr. Raymond Stantz] It looks like we're in the teens somewhere.

[Dr. Peter Venkman] When we get to twenty, tell me.
I'm gonna throw up.
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

Image
[Dr. Raymond Stantz] Twenty-two. Is this it?

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] Yep.

[Dr. Egon Spengler] Art deco, very nice.

[Dr. Raymond Stantz] Where is it?

[Dr. Peter Venkman] It's at the end of the hall.

[Entering Dana's blasted out apartment]

Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
[Dr. Raymond Stantz] Hey, where do these stairs go?

[Dr. Peter Venkman] They go up.

[Thunder]

[Dr. Peter Venkman] Okay, go ahead. Come on. Go ahead.
Image
Fine. Go ahead.

Image
Image
Image
Image
[Sees Dana convulsed by lightning]
Image
Dana!
Image
Dana!

[Thunder and lightning]

Image
Image
Image
Image
[Dana turns into dragon]

[Dr. Peter Venkman] Okay, so ...
Image
she's a dog [dragon].

Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
[Palace appears, Gozer appears]

Image
[Dr. Raymond Stantz] It's a girl.
Image

Image
[Dr. Egon Spengler] It's Gozer.

Image
[Winston Zeddmore] I thought Gozer was a man.

[Dr. Egon Spengler] It's whatever it wants to be.

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] Well, whatever it is, it's got to get by us.

[Dr. Raymond Stantz] Right.

[Dr. Peter Venkman] Go get her, Ray!

Image
[Dr. Raymond Stantz] Gozer the Gozerian?
Image
Good evening.
Image
As a duly designated representative of the City ...
County and State of New York ...
I order you to cease any and all supernatural activity ...
and return forthwith to your place of origin or to the nearest convenient parallel dimension.

[Dr. Peter Venkman] That ought to do it. Thanks very much, Ray.

Image
[Gozer] Are you a god?

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] [Nods his head yes.]
Image

Image
[Dr. Raymond Stantz] No.

Image
[Gozer] Then ...
Image
die!

Image
[Gozer hits Ghostbusters with electricity from her hands, they scream]

Image
[Dragons laugh]
Image

Image
[People on street frightened]
Image
Image
Image

Image
[Winston Zeddmore] Ray, when someone asks you if you're a god ...
you say, "Yes!"

[Dr. Peter Venkman] All right.
This chick is toast!
Image
Got your stick?

[All Ghostbusters] Holding it!

[Dr. Peter Venkman] Heat 'em up!

Image
[All Ghostbusters] Smoking!
Image
Image

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] Make 'em hard!

[All Ghostbusters] Ready!

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] Let's show this prehistoric bitch how we do things downtown.

As Eva Keuls sums up classical Athens: "In the case of a society dominated by men who sequester their wives and daughters, denigrate the female role in reproduction, erect monuments to male genitalia, have sex with the sons of their peers, sponsor public whorehouses, create a mythology of rape, and engage in rampant saber-rattling, it is not inappropriate to refer to a reign of the phallus."

-- The Myth of Matriarchal Prehistory: Why an Invented Past Won't Give Women a Future, by Cynthia Eller


Image
[Gozer] [Growling]

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] Throw it!
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
[Gozer flies up and does somersault in air, then lands on her feet]
Image
Nimble little minx, isn't she?

[Dr. Egon Spengler] We're gonna go full stream.

Image
[Dr. Raymond Stantz] Aim for the flattop!
Image

Image
[Gozer disappears]

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] Wasn't so hard.

Image
[Dr. Raymond Stantz] We neutronized it.
You know what that means? A complete particle reversal.

[Winston Zeddmore] We had the tools. We had the talent.

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] It's Miller time.

[Dr. Egon Spengler] [Looking at his meter] Ray, this looks extraordinarily bad.

[Dr. Raymond Stantz] Oh, no.

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] What?

[Creaking and heaving sounds]

Image
[Dr. Egon Spengler] Look out!

Image
[Demon statue head falls and breaks apart]
Image
Image

Image
[Gozer] Subcreatures!
Image
Gozer the Gozerian, Gozer the Destructor ...
Image
Volguus, Zildrohar, the Traveller has come.
Choose and perish.

Image
[Dr. Ray Stantz] What do you mean, "choose"? We don't understand.

[Gozer] Choose.
Image
Choose the form of the destructor.

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] Oh, I get it. I get it.
Oh, very cute.
Whatever we think of.
If we think of J. Edgar Hoover ...
J. Edgar Hoover will appear and destroy us.
Okay? So empty your heads. Empty your heads. Don't think of anything.
We've only got one shot at this.

Image
[Gozer] The choice is made.

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa!

Image
[Gozer] The Traveller has come.

[Dr. Peter Venkman] Nobody choosed anything!
Image
[To Egon] Did you choose anything?

[Dr. Egon Spengler] No.

[Dr. Peter Venkman] [To Winston] Did you?

[Winston Zeddmore] My mind is totally blank.

[Dr. Peter Venkman] I didn't choose anything!

[Dr. Raymond Stantz] I couldn't help it.
Image
It just popped in there.

[Dr. Peter Venkman] What?
What just popped in there?

[Dr. Raymond Stantz] I tried to think --

Image
[Dr. Egon Spengler] Look!

Image
[Dr. Raymond Stantz] No! It can't be.

[Dr. Peter Venkman] What is it?

[Dr. Raymond Stantz] It can't be.

[Dr. Peter Venkman] What did you do, Ray?

[Winston Zeddmore] Oh, shit.
Image

Image
[Dr. Raymond Stantz] It's the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man.

Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
[Marshmallow Man roaring and stomping]

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] Well, there's something you don't see everyday.

Image
[Dr. Raymond Stantz] I tried to think of the most harmless thing.
Something I loved from my childhood.
Something that could never ever possibly destroy us.
Mr. Stay Puft.

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] Nice thinking, Ray.

Image
[Dr. Raymond Stantz] We used to roast Stay Puft marshmallows ...
by the fire at Camp Waconda.

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] Ray has gone bye-bye, Egon.
What have you got left?

[Dr. Egon Spengler] Sorry, Venkman.
Image
I'm terrified beyond the capacity for rational thought.

Image
[Marshmallow Man roars and stomps on a church]
Image

Image
[Winston Zeddmore] Oh, no.

[Dr. Peter Venkman] Mother puss bucket!
Image
Image
Nobody steps on a church in my town!

Image
[Dr. Raymond Stantz] One, two, three, roast him!

Image
[Marshmallow Man roars]
Image
Image

[Ghostbusters take cover]

Image
[Dr. Raymond Stantz] Funny us going out like this.
Image
Killed by a 100-foot marshmallow man.

[Dr. Peter Venkman] We've been going about this all wrong. This Mr. Stay Puft is okay.
He's a sailor. He's in New York.
We get this guy laid, we won't have any trouble.

[Dr. Egon Spengler] I have a radical idea. The door swings both ways.
Image
We could reverse the particle flow through the gate.

[Dr. Raymond Stantz] How?

[Dr. Egon Spengler] We'll cross the streams.

In the views of Vajrayana all phenomena of the universe are linked to one another by the threads of erotic love. Erotic love is the great life force, the prana which flows through the cosmos, the cosmic libido...the union of the male and female principles is a constant topic. Our phenomenal world is considered to be the field of action of these two basic forces. They are manifest as polarities in nature just as in the spheres of the spirit. Each alone appears as just one half of the truth. Only in their fusion can they perform the transformation of all contradictions into harmony. When a human couple remember their metaphysical unity they can become one spirit and one flesh...Divine erotic love thus leads to enlightenment and salvation...

Nonetheless, as we shall see, the Vajrayana practices culminate in a spectacular destruction of the entire male-female cosmology...it is only after the ritual destruction of the feminine that the illusory world (maya) can be surmounted and transcended...Only her bodilessness, her existential sacrifice and her dissolution into nothing allow the karma mudra to transmute into the maha mudra and gynergy to be distilled out of the yogini in order to construct the feminine ego of the adept with this “stuff”...

The maha mudra has, it is said, an “empty body”...Ngawang Dhargyey describes how the “empty body” can only be produced through the destruction of all the “material” elements of a physical, natural “body of appearance”. In contrast to such, “their bodies are composed simply of energy and consciousness” ... The physical world, sensuality, matter and nature — considered feminine in not just Buddhism — thus become pure spirit in an irreconcilable opposition. But they are not completely destroyed in the process of their violent spiritualization, but rather “sublated” in the Hegelian sense, namely “negated” and “conserved” at the same time...It is based upon the ancient paradigm in which the energies of a creature are transferred to its killer. The maker of the sacrifice wants to absorb the vital substance of the offering, in many cases by consuming it after it has been slaughtered. Through this he not only “integrates” the qualities of the killed, but also believes he may outwit death, by feeding upon the body and soul of the sacrificial victim.

-- The Shadow of the Dalai Lama: Sexuality, Magic and Politics in Tibetan Buddhism, by Victor and Victoria Trimondi


Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] Excuse me, Egon. You said crossing the streams was bad.

[Dr. Raymond Stantz] "Cross the streams."

[Dr. Peter Venkman] You're going to endanger us. You're going to endanger our client ...
the nice lady who paid us in advance before she became a dog [dragon].

[Dr. Egon Spengler] Not necessarily.
Image
There's definitely a very slim chance we'll survive.

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] [Slaps Ray] I love this plan.
I'm excited to be a part of it. Let's do it!

Image
[Winston Zeddmore] This job is definitely not worth eleven-five a year.
Image

Image
[Dr. Egon Spengler] Hurry!

Image
[Dr. Peter Venkman] See you on the other side, Ray.

[Dr. Raymond Stantz] Nice working with you Dr. Venkman.
Image
Image
Image

Image
[Dr. Raymond Stantz] Turn them on, Spengler!
Image
Cross them now!
Image
Get the hell out of here!

Image
Image
Image
[Explosions]

Image
Image
[Walter Peck covered with Hot Marshmallow, he screams]

[W]e would like to make a number of reflections on the topic of sperm gnosis, which so decisively shapes not just the Kalachakra but rather all tantras. The same name, bodhicitta, is borne by both the male seed and the supreme mystic experience, that of the “clear light”. This already makes apparent how closely interlaced the semen virile and enlightenment are. The bodhicitta ("wisdom-mind”) is characterized by the feeling of “supreme bliss” and “absolute self-awareness”. A connection between both states of consciousness and the male sperm seems to be a necessity for the tantric, since, as we may read in the Hevajra Tantra, “without semen there would be no bliss and without bliss semen would not exist. Since semen and bliss are ineffective on their own they are mutually dependent and bliss arises from the union with the deity”...if the yogi succeeds in permanently uniting within himself both elixirs (the semen virile and the semen feminile), then eternal life lies in store for him. He becomes a “born of himself”, having overcome the curse of rebirth and replaced it with the esoteric vision of immortality.

Image

I'm sorry. I just forgot.

Image
Image
[Dana's hand breaks through dragon's arm]
Image

Image
[Dr. Raymond Stantz] Look!

Image
[Dana Barrett] [Moaning]

"The 'pure substance' or the 'elixir' ... obtained from the entrails of Mother Nature, is in alchemy nothing other than the gynergy so sought after in Tantrism. Just like the Tantric, the alchemist thus draws a distinction between the 'coarse' and the 'sublime' feminine. After the destruction of the 'dark mother', the so-called nigredo, the second phase follows, which goes by the name of albedo ('whitening'). The adept understands this to mean the 'liberation' of the subtle feminine ('pure substance') from the clutches of the coarse 'dragon' (prima materia)....

The master has thus transformed the black matter, which for him symbolizes the dark mother, following its burning or cutting up in his laboratory into an ethereal 'girl' and then distilled from this the 'pure Sophia', the incarnation of wisdom, the 'chaste moon goddess', the 'white queen of heaven'. One text talks 'of the transformation of the Babylonian whore into a virgin' (Evola, 1993, p. 207)....

Now this transmutation is not, as a contemporary observer would perhaps imagine the process to be, a purely spiritual/mental procedure. In the alchemist’s laboratory, some form of black starting substance is in fact burned up, and a chemical, usually liquid substance really is extracted from this material, which the adept captures in a pear-shaped flask at the end of the experiment. The Indians refer to this liquid as rasa, their European colleagues as the 'elixir'. Hence the name for Indian alchemy — Rasayana.

Even though all the interpreters in the discussion of the alchemic 'virgin image' (the subtle feminine) are of the unanimous opinion that this is a matter of the spiritual and psychological source of inspiration for the man, this nevertheless has a physical existence as a magical fluid. The 'white woman', the 'holy Sophia' is both an image of desire of the masculine psyche and the visible elixir in a glass. (In connection with the seed gnosis we shall show that this is also the case in Tantrism.)

This elixir has many names and is called among other things 'moon dew”' or aqua sapientiae (water of wisdom) or 'white virgin milk'. The final (chemical) extraction of the wonder milk is known as ablactatio (milking). Even in such a concrete point there are parallels to Tantrism: In the still to be described 'Vase initiation' of the Kalachakra Tantra, the ritual vessels which are offered up to the vajra master in sacrifice, represent the wisdom consorts (mudras). They are called 'the vase that holds the white [the milk]' (Dhargyey, 1985, p.. Whatever ingredients this 'moon dew' may consist of, in both cultural circles, it is considered to be the elixir of wisdom (prajna) and a liquid form of gynergy. It is as strongly desired by every European adept as by every Tibetan tantric master....

We can thus state that, in Tantrism, the relation between the real woman (karma mudra) and the imaginary spirit woman (inana mudra) is the same as that between the dark mother (prima materia) and the 'chaste moon goddess' (the feminine life-elixir or gynergy) in European alchemy. Therefore, the sacrifice of karma mudra (prima materia), drawn usually from the lower classes, and her transformation into a Buddhist 'goddess' (inana mudra) is an alchemic drama. Another variation upon the identical hermetic play emerges in the victory of the vajra master over the dark horror dakini (prima materia) and her slaughter, after which she (post mortem) enters the tantric stage as a gentle, floating figure — as a nectar-giving 'sky walker' ('the chaste moon goddess'). The witch-like cemetery whore has transformed herself into a sweet granter of wisdom.

[Ghost screaming]

Let us first look at the mystery-play or tragedy as acted by the Lamas of the old school, at Himis, in Ladak, in Sikhim, Bhotan, etc., and afterwards refer to the versions as acted by the reformed and established church...

When acted at the end of the year it forms part of the ceremony called "The sacrificial body of the dead year," and is held on the last two or three days of the old year, from the 28th to the 30th of the twelfth month. As the performance is conducted at the Himis monastery, in Ladak, in a much grander style than was witnessed by me in Sikhim, and more in the style seen in Tibet, and as it has been there witnessed and described by several travellers," I shall take the Himis performance as the basis of my description, and amplify the descriptions of it where necessary.

As the day for the play draws near, the villagers flock in from the country-side; and on the morning of the day fixed for the performance, the people, decked in holiday attire, throng to the temple many hours before that fixed for the performance, to secure good points of view. Seats are provided and reserved only for the gentry and high officials and visitors. The king and other grandees have state boxes.

The performance is held al fresco in the courtyard of the temple (see the photograph on page 528). The orchestra is sometimes screened off from view, and the maskers assemble either in the temple or in yak-hair tents, and are treated to refreshments often, and soup between the acts.

A shrill bugle-call, from a trumpet made out of a human thigh-bone, notifies the commencement of the play.

The gongs and shawms strike up a wailing sort of air, which the musicians accompany by a low chant, and out come trooping a crowd of the pre-Lamaist black-mitred priests, clad in rich robes of China silk and brocade, and preceded by swingers of censers. They make the mystic sign of "The Three," and execute a stately dance to slow music.

Stretching out the right hand and left alternately, the leaders turn to the right, and the last in line to the left, both advancing and retiring towards each other several times, and, reforming the circle and making the sign of the Trident, they retire.

After these have gone out, then enter a troupe of the man-eating malignant demons, who, with their hordes, vex and harass humanity. They infest the air, the earth, the water, and are constantly seeking to destroy man, not unlike their better-known relative, who, "as a roaring lion, walketh about seeking whom he may devour." These hordes of demons are intended to illustrate the endless oppression of man by the powers of evil, against whom he can of himself do nothing, but occasionally the exorcisms or prayers of some good Lama or incarnator may come to his assistance and shield him, but even then only after a fierce and doubtful contest between the saints and the devils. And only for a time, too, can this relief from persecution endure, for all the exorcisms of all the saints are of little avail to keep back the advancing hordes. The shrieking demons must close in upon the soul again...

"In their right hand they hold a bell or fan, and in their left a bowl cut out of a human skull, and round the edge of which are attached narrow streamers of silk and some plaited ends of hair. This ghastly ladle is called Bundah. Some of the maskers hold in the right hand a short stick, with red and blue streamers of silk; these and the spoons majestically waved about as they go round in their solemn dance had the most curious effect I ever saw."

To these monsters (now coerced by Buddhism) the Lamas offer a libation of beer, and some rice or mustard-seed, and to all the beings of the six classes, and especially including the demons, and the rice or seeds are thrown about freely; and each Lama present inwardly prays for the realization of his desire.

At a signal from the cymbals the large trumpets (eight or ten feet long) and the other instruments, pipes and drums, etc., and shrill whistling (with the fingers in the mouth), produce a deafening din to summon the noxious demons and the enemies. "The music became fast and furious, and troop after troop of different masks rushed on, some beating wooden tambourines, others swelling the din with rattles and bells. All of these masks were horrible, and the malice of infernal beings was well expressed on some of them. As they danced to the wild music with strange steps and gesticulations, they howled in savage chorus. . . . The solemn chanting ceased, and then rushed on the scene a crowd of wan shapes, almost naked, with but a few rags about them. . . . They wrung their hands despairingly, and rushed about in a confused way as if lost, starting from each other in terror when they met, sometimes feeling about them with their outstretched hands like blind men, and all the while whistling in long-drawn notes, which rose and fell like a strong wind on the hills, producing an indescribably dreary effect. These, I was told, represented the unfortunate souls of dead men which had been lost in space, and were vainly seeking their proper sphere through the darkness. . . . The variously masked figures of Spirits of Evil flocked in, troop after troop — oxen-headed and serpent-headed devils; three-eyed monsters with projecting fangs, their heads crowned with tiaras of human skulls; Lamas painted and masked to represent skeletons; dragon-faced fiends, naked save for tiger-skins about their loins, and many others. Sometimes they appeared to be taunting and terrifying the stray souls of men -- grim shapes who fled hither and thither among their tormentors, waving their arms and wailing miserably, souls who had not obtained Nirvana and yet who had no incarnation ...Then the demons were repelled again by holy men; but no sooner did these last exorcise one hideous band than other crowds came shrieking on. It was a hopeless conflict. . . . At one period of the ceremony a holy man . . . blessed a goblet of water by laying his hands on it and intoning some prayer or charm. Then he sprinkled the water in all directions, and the defeated demons stayed their shrieking, dancing, and infernal music, and gradually crept out of the arena, and no sound was heard for a time but the sweet singing of the holy choir. But the power of exorcism was evanescent, for the routed soon returned in howling shoals."

The superior effect of Buddhism over the indigenous Shamanism is now shown by the arrival on the scene of the Indian monk, Padma-sambhava, and his assistants, or his eight forms; or sometimes these are represented as Buddha himself, or the group of the "Seven Buddhas."

This scene is thus described: "The loud music suddenly ceased, and all the demons scampered off shrieking as if in fear, for a holy thing was approaching. To solemn chanting, low music and swinging of censers, a stately procession came through the porch of the temple and slowly descended the steps. Under a canopy, borne by attendants, walked a tall form in beautiful silk robes, wearing a large mask representing a benign and peaceful face. As he advanced, men and boys, dressed as abbots and acolytes of the church of Rome, prostrated themselves before him and addressed him with intoning and pleasing chanting. He was followed by six other masks, who were treated with similar respect. These seven deified beings drew themselves in a line on one side of the quadrangle and received the adoration of several processions of masked figures, some of abbots, and others beast-headed, or having the faces of devils."

These last are the demon-kings who have been coerced by Buddhism into becoming guardians and defensores fidei of that religion. And amongst the worshippers are the Pa-wo or "heroes" with green masks, surmounted by triangular red flags, and girdles, and anklets of bells; and the solemnity is relieved by a few Acaryas, or jesters, who play practical jokes, and salute the holy personages with mock respect.

The enemy of Tibet and of Lamaism is now represented in effigy, but before cutting it to pieces, it is used to convey to the people a vivid conception of the manner in which devils attack a corpse, and the necessity for priestly services of a quasi-Buddhist sort to guard it and its soul.

Some days previous to the commencement of the play, an image of a young lad is made out of dough, in most elaborate fashion, and as life-like as possible. Organs representing the heart, lungs, liver, brain, stomach, intestines, etc., are inserted into it, and the heart and large blood-vessels and limbs are filled with a red-coloured fluid to represent blood. And occasionally, I am informed on good authority, actual flesh from the corpses of criminals is inserted into the image used in this ceremony at the established church of Potala.

This effigy of the enemy is brought forth by the four cemetery-ghouls, and laid in the centre of the square, and freely stabbed by the weapons, and by the gestures and spells of the circling hosts of demons, as in the illustration here given.

The necromantic power of the Lamas is here shown much in the same way as in the Burmese sacred play at Arakan. On three signals with the cymbals, two Indian monks (Acaryas) come out of the monastery, and blow their horns and go through a series of droll antics, and are followed by two or more Lamas who draw around the effigy on the pavement of the quadrangle a magic triangle and retire. Then rush in the ghosts, death-demons, "figures painted black and white to simulate skeletons, some in chains, others bearing sickles or swords, engaged in a frantic dance around the corpse. They were apparently attempting to snatch it away or inflict some injury on it, but were deterred by the magic effect of the surrounding triangle and by the chanting and censer-swinging of several holy men in mitred and purple copes. . . .

"A more potent and very ugly fiend, with great horns on his head and huge lolling tongue, ran in, hovered threateningly over the corpse, and with a great sword slashed furiously about it, just failing by little more than a hair's-breadth to touch it with each sweep of the blade. He seemed as if he were about to overcome the opposing enchantment when a saint of still greater power than he now came to the rescue. The saint approached the corpse and threw a handful of flour on it, making mystic signs and muttering incantations. This appeared from his mask to be one of the incarnations of Buddha. He had more control over the evil spirits than any other who had yet contended with them. The skeletons, and also he that bore the great sword, grovelled before him, and with inarticulate and beast-like cries implored mercy. He yielded to their supplications, gave each one a little of the flour he carried with him, which the fiends ate gratefully, kneeling before him; and he also gave them to drink out of a vessel of holy water."

This usually concludes one day's performance. On the following day adoration is paid to the Jina... And then occurs the ceremony of stabbing the enemy by the phurbu or mystic dagger.

Four ghouls bring in an object wrapped in a black cloth, and placing it on the ground, dance round it with intricate steps, then raising the cloth disclose a prone image of a man, which has been made in the manner previously described.

Then enter the demon-generals and kings, including the demon Tam-din, and they dance around the image. They are followed by the fiendesses, including the twelve Tan-ma, under Devi. These are followed by the black-hat devil-dancers, and these are, in the established church version, held to represent the Lama who assumed this disguise to assassinate king Lan-darma. The four guards now hold the door to prevent entry of any enemies or evil spirits. The black-hats dance round thrice and are succeeded by the god of Wealth, fiendesses, and butchers, the five great "kings," and their queens and ministers, also the state sorcerer of Na-ch'un, and his eight-fold attendants.

Then enters a fearful fiend named "The holy king of Religion," with the head of a bull, holding in his right hand a dagger with silk streamers, and in his left a human heart (in effigy) and a snare, attended by a retinue of fiends and fiendesses, bearing weapons and dressed in skins, human beings, tigers and leopards; and the last to enter are tiger-skin-clad warriors with bows and arrows...

The King-devil, surrounded by his fiendish hordes, dances and makes with dagger the gesture of "The Three"; he stabs the heart, arms and legs of the figure, and binds its feet by the snare. He then rings a bell, and seizing a sword, chops off the limbs and slits open the breast and extracts the bleeding heart, lungs and intestines.

A troupe of monsters, with the heads of deer and yaks, rush in and gore the remains and scatter the fragments with their horns and hands to the four directions.

Underling fiends now collect the fragments into a huge silver basin shaped like a skull, which four of them carry to the Demon-king in a pompous procession, in which the black-hat devil-dancers join. The Demon-king then seizes the bleeding fragments, and, eating a morsel, throws them up in the air, when they are caught and fought for by the other demons, who throw the pieces about in a frantic manner, and ultimately throwing them amongst the crowd, which now takes part in the orgy, and a general melee results, each one scrambling for morsels of the fragments, which some eat and others treasure as talismans against wounds, diseases and misfortunes….

A burnt sacrifice is now made by the Demon-king. He pours oil into a cauldron, under which a fire is lit, and when the oil is boiling, he ties to the end of a stick which he holds an image of a man made of paper, and he puts into the boiling oil a skull filled with a mixture of arak (rum), poison, and blood, and into this he puts the image; and when the image bursts into flame, he declares that all the injuries have been consumed.

This rite is followed by a procession to abandon a large three-headed image of dough, to the top of which many threads and streamers are tied. This procession of monks is preceded by the maskers, numbering several hundreds in the larger monasteries, clanging noisy cymbals and blowing thigh-bone trumpets, etc. The laity follow in the rear, brandishing guns and other weapons, and shouting "Drag-ge-pun c'am." And when the image is abandoned the crowd tear it to pieces and eagerly fight for the fragments, which are treasured as charms. A gun is then fired amid general shouts of joy, and the Lamas return to the temple for a celebration of worship....

Prayers ever hang upon the people's lips. The prayers are chiefly directed to the devils, imploring them for freedom or release from their cruel inflictions, or they are plain naive requests for aid towards obtaining the good things of this life, the loaves and the fishes. At all spare times, day and night, the people ply their prayer-wheels, and tell their beads, and mutter the mystic six syllables — Om ma-ni pad-me Hum! "Om! the Jewel in the Lotus, Hum!" — the sentence which gains them their great goal, the glorious heaven of eternal bliss, the paradise of the fabulous Buddha of boundless Light — Amitabha.

Still, with all their strivings and the costly services of their priests, the Tibetans never attain peace of mind. They have fallen under the double ban of menacing demons and despotic priests. So it will be a happy day, indeed, for Tibet when its sturdy over-credulous people are freed from the intolerable tyranny of the Lamas, and delivered from the devils whose ferocity and exacting worship weigh like a nightmare upon all.
