Ghostbusters

EXT. PUBLIC LIBRARY -- DAY

Venkman and Stantz arrive in a taxi and trot up the front steps. Stantz is loaded down with equipment.

STANTZ
Spengler and I have charted every psychic
occurrence in the Tri-State area for the
past two years. The graph we came up with
definitely points to something big.

VENKMAN
Ray, as your friend I have to tell you I
think you've really gone around the bend on
this ghost stuff. You've been running your
ass off for two years checking out every
schizo in the Five Boroughs who thinks he's
had an experience. And what have you seen?

STANTZ
What do you mean by "seen?"

VENKMAN
Looked at with your eyes.

STANTZ
Well, I was at an unexplained multiple
high-altitude rockfall
once.

VENKMAN
Uh-huh. I've heard about the rockfall, Ray.
I think you've been spending too much time
with Spengler.

INT. MAIN READING ROOM -- DAY

EGON SPENGLER is looking for spirits when Venkman and Stantz arrive.
Spengler is a real egghead, a New Wave Mr. Spock, who single-handedly got Venkman through graduate school. Spengler is incredibly intelligent but amazingly dense at the same time. At the moment he is listening to a table using a stethoscope connected to stereo earphones. Venkman comes up behind him and taps on the table to get his attention.

VENKMAN
Egon?

Spengler hears the tapping and thinks he's made contact with the spirit
world. Then Venkman slams a heavy book down on the table.

VENKMAN (CONT'D)
Egon!

Spengler jumps at the deafening noise in his earphones and turns to see Venkman and Stantz.

SPENGLER
Oh! You're here.

VENKMAN
What have you got, Egon?

SPENGLER
Oh, this is big, Peter. This is very big.
There's definitely something here.

VENKMAN
Egon, somehow this reminds me of the time
you tried to drill a hole in your head. Do
you remember that?

HEAD LIBRARIAN

A choleric, middle-aged civil servant, MR. DELACORTE, hurries over to meet them.

HEAD LIBRARIAN
(nervous)
Hello, I'm Roger Delacorte - the Head
Librarian. Are you the men from the
University?

VENKMAN
Yes. I'm Dr. Venkman and this is Dr. Stantz.

HEAD LIBRARIAN
(leads them off)
Thank you for coming. I'd appreciate it if
we could take care of this quickly and quietly.

VENKMAN
One thing at a time. We don't even know
what it is yet.

INT. AN OFFICE -- A LITTLE LATER

Venkman is questioning the plump Librarian who saw the spirit, while a Paramedic continues treating her for shock.

LIBRARIAN
I don't remember seeing any legs, but it
definitely had arms because it reached for
me.

STANTZ
(excited)
Arms! Great! I can't wait to get a look
at this thing.

Venkman glowers at him, still skeptical.

VENKMAN
(to the girl)
All right, miss. Have you or has any member
of your family ever been diagnosed
schizophrenic or mentally incompetent?

LIBRARIAN
Well, my uncle thought he was St. Jerome.

VENKMAN
(looks at Stantz)
I'll call that a big "yes."
(to the girl)
Do you yourself habitually use drugs,
stimulants or alcohol?

LIBRARIAN
No.

VENKMAN
I thought not. And one last thing. Are you
currently menstruating?

HEAD LIBRARIAN
(shocked)
What's that got to do with it?

VENKMAN
(snaps)
Back off, man! I'm a scientist!

THE DOOR

Spengler sticks his head in.

SPENGLER
(excited)
It's moving!

Stantz and Venkman rush out.

INT. DEEP IN THE STACKS -- DAY

They come slowly down the dark aisle with Spengler leading, taking
constant readings. Their faces are lit mainly by the light of their own
monitoring and recording equipment.

HIGH POV

Looking down on them from the spectral point of view.

A SPIRAL STAIRCASE

One by one, Venkman, Stantz and Spengler come down the tightly winding,
old iron staircase. They are scared. Books are strewn all over the
floor.

A BOOKSHELF

The books start to slide forward then the whole shelving unit topples over and almost crushes the team under a ton of books. They jump to safety.

VENKMAN
Nice.
(out loud)
Hello...

Spengler looks at his meters and silently points at a dark aisle
intersecting the one they're in. The team inches toward it.

SPENGLER
It's here.

They stop at the corner.

INT. THE DARK AISLE -- DAY

The team peeks around the corner and looks toward camera.

THEIR POV -- DAY

An ethereal presence is hovering between the stacks about four feet off the ground. It seems to waver on the edge of being and non-being, then a large legless, headless torso begins to emerge.

VENKMAN, STANTZ AND SPENGLER

They stand there amazed.

STANTZ
(whispers)
What is it?

VENKMAN
It looks like a big pair of breasts and a
pot belly.
