Answer: Dr. Peter Venkman (Bill Murray)

In this scene college professor Dr. Peter Venkman (Bill Murray) is showing cards to two student subjects and is asking them to tell him what is on the side they can't see. His subjects are a pretty girl (Jennifer Runyon) and a nerdy boy (Steven Tash) who Dr. Venkman apparently enjoys shocking with an electrical jolt, even when he gets the right answer. The girl is always told she is correct, even when she is wrong! When the male asks Dr. Venkman what he is studying, he replies, "I'm studying the effect of negative reinforcement on ESP ability."
2. "Alice, I'm going to ask you a couple of standard questions, okay? Have you or any of your family been diagnosed schizophrenic? Mentally incompetent?" Choose the character who said this quote from these multiple choices.

Answer: Dr. Peter Venkman (Bill Murray)

In this scene Dr. Venkman (Bill Murray), one of three professors specializing in parapsychology, is questioning Alice Drummond, a librarian in the NY Public Library, about things she saw while putting books back on the shelves in the basement. Alice has encountered a ghost, books levitating across the aisle and flying catalog cards.

The three professors witness the transparent form of an elderly lady librarian, reading a book. When Dr. Venkman begins to talk to her, she shushes him. After Dr. Raymond Stantz proclaims he knows what to do, they stealthily approach the ghost and then Ray yells "get her!" The librarian ghost then changes into an angry, ghoulish, skeletal apparition that snarls at them.

The trio has the daylights scared out of them and they run from the library!
3. "You've never been out of college. You don't know what it's like out there. I've worked in the private sector. They expect results." Choose the character who said this quote from these multiple choices.

Answer: Dr. Raymond Stantz (Dan Aykroyd)

In this scene the three professors are discussing forming a business that specializes in ghost removal, after they are thrown out of their college by Dean Yager (Jordan Charney) because of their "highly suspect findings, sloppy research, and highly questionable conclusions." Dr. Raymond Stantz (Dan Aykroyd) is not so sure about starting a business, however, and comments with this quote.

Answer: Dr. Peter Venkman (Bill Murray)

In this scene the three professors are leaving a bank, having obtained financing for their new business. This proposed business is financed by mortgaging the house of Dr. Stantz and he protests, "My parents left me that house. I was born there." Dr. Venkman reassures him with this quote.
5. "Wow! This place is great! When can we move in? You gotta try this pole. I'm gonna get my stuff. Hey. We should stay here. Tonight. Sleep here. You know, to try it out." Choose the character who said this quote from these multiple choices.

Answer: Dr. Raymond Stantz (Dan Aykroyd)

In this scene the three professors are looking at an old, unused firehouse with a real estate agent, as a possible location for their business. Just after Dr. Spengler (Harold Ramis) comments to Dr. Venkman, "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," Dr. Stantz (Dan Aykroyd) slides down the brass fire pole and excitedly says this quote. Dr. Venkman looks at the real estate agent and says, "I think we'll take it."
6. "I collect spores, molds, and fungus." Choose the character who said this quote from these multiple choices.

Answer: Dr. Egon Spengler (Harold Ramis)

In this scene the catchy logo of their new business is shown to be the image of a ghost with a slash through it. Newly-hired receptionist, Janine Melnitz (Annie Potts), is making small talk with Dr. Egon Spengler (Harold Ramis). After she says, "I read a lot myself. Some people think I'm too intellectual but I think it's a fabulous way to spend your spare time. I also play racquetball. Do you have any hobbies?" Dr. Spengler says this quote.
7. "That's the bedroom, but nothing ever happened in there." Choose the character who said this quote from these multiple choices.

Answer: Dana Barrett (Sigourney Weaver)

In this scene Dr. Venkman (Bill Murray) is inspecting the apartment of classical musician Dana Barrett (Sigourney Weaver), an early customer of their new business. When Dana says this quote, Dr. Venkman replies, "What a crime." Dana has experienced a growl coming from her refrigerator, and when she opened the door, saw an otherworldly temple and a doglike creature that growled the word "Zuul". When Dana explains she only heard this growl coming from her refrigerator, Dr. Venkman says, "Generally you don't see that kind of behavior in a major appliance."
8. "You know, you don't act like a scientist." ... "You're more like a game show host." Choose the character who said this quote from these multiple choices.

Answer: Dana Barrett (Sigourney Weaver)

In this scene Dr. Venkman is supposed to be inspecting the apartment of classical musician Dana Barrett for the cause of the growl Dana has experienced coming from her refrigerator. However, he seems more interested in flirting with her than doing some serious investigation, and Dana says the first part of this quote. When Dr. Venkman says, "They're usually pretty stiff," Dana adds the second part of this quote.
9. "What is the magic word, Mr. Venkman?" Choose the character who said this quote from these multiple choices.

Answer: Walter Peck (William Atherton)

In this scene a self-important Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) inspector named Walter Peck (William Atherton) has shown up at the Ghostbuster headquarters, demanding to inspect their containment facility. Peck suspects possible environmental impact of their operation and wants to assess the possibility of any dangerous or possibly hazardous waste chemicals in their basement. However, Dr. Venkman won't let him look, and stalls him by demanding he use the magic word, "please." Even after Peck adds the word "please" to his request, Dr. Venkman demands he first get a court order.
10. "You are so kind to take care of that man. You know, you're a real humanitarian." Choose the character who said this quote from these multiple choices.

Answer: Janine Melnitz (Annie Potts)

In this scene the NY Police Department have just dropped off a disheveled-looking Louis Tully (Rick Moranis) at the Ghostbusters' headquarters, and Dr. Egon Spengler helps him inside. Receptionist Janine Melnitz (Annie Potts) watches this, and then says this quote. After Louis claims he is Vinz Clortho, Keymaster of Gozer, Dr. Spengler says, "I don't think he's human." After Egon takes a call from Peter and learns Dana has been possessed by Zuul and now claims to be the Gatekeeper, they agree it would be very dangerous to get Louis and Dana together.
11. "This city is headed for a disaster of biblical proportions!" (Hint: This is said by the same Ghostbuster as the one who initially investigated Dana's apartment.) Choose the character who said this quote from these multiple choices.

Answer: Dr. Peter Venkman (Bill Murray)

In this scene the mayor of New York City (David Margulies) is mediating the confrontation between the Ghostbusters and Environmental Protection Agency agent Walter Peck (William Atherton). Ghostbuster Dr. Venkman maintains that a terrible infestation of ghosts is about to hit NYC and that the Ghostbusters should be allowed to combat them. Agent Peck thinks the Ghostbusters are quacks and con artists and wants to shut them down.

When Dr. Venkman says this quote to the mayor, he asks, "What do you mean, biblical"? Dr. Ray Stantz explains, "What he means is Old Testament, Mr. Mayor, real wrath-of-God type stuff."
12. "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... you will have saved the lives of millions of registered voters!" Choose the character who said this quote from these multiple choices.

Answer: Dr. Peter Venkman (Bill Murray)

In this hilarious scene the mayor of New York City (David Margulies) continues his mediation of the confrontation between the Ghostbusters and Environmental Protection Agency agent Walter Peck (William Atherton). After Dr. Venkman says this quote to the mayor, the mayor pauses, thinking it over. During the pause he looks at his friend, the Archbishop of NYC (Tom McDermott), who smiles and nods approvingly. Agent Peck is astounded by this and exclaims, "I don't believe you are seriously considering listening to these men!" His mind made up, the mayor then says, "Get him out of here!" (referring to agent Peck) and a NYC policeman hustles Peck out of the room.
13. "Ray, if someone asks if you are a god, you say yes!" (Hint: The speaker is the newest member of the Ghostbuster team.) Choose the character who said this quote from these multiple choices.

Answer: Winston Zeddmore (Ernie Hudson)

In this scene Dr. Ray Stantz has politely requested that Gozer (who is now in the form of a tall, thin female with a dark flattop and blood red eyes) return to her place of origin. She asks if he is a god, and when Ray says no, she shoots a lightning bolt from her finger, nearly hurling the Ghostbusters off the roof. After Winston dusts himself off, he says this quote to Ray.
14. "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." Choose the character who said this quote from these multiple choices.

Answer: Dr. Raymond Stantz (Dan Aykroyd)

In this scene the evil Gozer has boomed out the command to "Choose the form of the destructor," and Peter has cautioned his fellow Ghostbusters to clear their minds and think of nothing, so no form will be taken. When Gozer says, "The choice is made," Peter asks, "Did you choose anything?" Egon and Winston both say they didn't, but Ray confesses with this quote. A giant Mr. Stay Puft marshmallow man (complete with evil-looking grin) starts stomping through NYC. Peter comments, "Nice thinking, Ray."
15. "I love this town!" Choose the character who said this quote from these multiple choices.

Answer: Winston Zeddmore (Ernie Hudson)

In this scene the Ghostbusters have decided to try the risky move of crossing the energy streams from their proton packs, in an effort to destroy the temple and terminate Gozer's portal from the underworld. It works, and the temple is destroyed in a tremendous explosion, and the giant Mr. Stay Puft marshmallow man is incinerated (raining goo on a watching Walter Peck).

They think both Dana and Louis are dead, but then her fingers crack through the hardened ruins of the terror dogs and both eventually emerge as they were before being possessed. Winston exclaims this quote (the last line in the movie) as the crowd on the street cheers and the great theme music with the line "Who You Gonna Call?" starts playing!
