Ghostbusters (1984) Poster


Sigourney Weaver: Dana Barrett



  • Dana Barrett : [as The Gatekeeper]  I want you inside me.

    Dr. Peter Venkman : [referring to her radical change in personality]  Go ahead! No, I can't. It sounds like you've got at least two or three people in there already.

  • Dr. Peter Venkman : What I'd really like to do is talk to Dana. Dana? It's Peter.

    Dana Barrett : There is no Dana, there is only Zuul.

    Dr. Peter Venkman : Oh, Zuulie, you nut, now c'mon. Just relax, c'mon. I want to talk to Dana. Dana, Dana. Can I talk to Dana?

    Dana Barrett : [in an inhuman demonic voice]  There is no Dana, only Zuul!

    Dr. Peter Venkman : What a lovely singing voice you must have.

  • Dana Barrett : That's the bedroom, but nothing ever happened in there.

    Dr. Peter Venkman : What a crime.

  • Dana Barrett : [possessed by Zuul]  Do you want this body?

    Dr. Peter Venkman : Is this a trick question?

  • Dr. Peter Venkman : Egon, what do you think?

    Dr. Egon Spengler : [looking up and blinding Peter with his headlamp]  She's telling the truth. At least, she thinks she is.

    Dana Barrett : Well, of course I'm telling the truth! Who would make up a story like that?

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

    Dr. Raymond Stantz : You know what it could be? Past-life experience intruding on present time.

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

    Dana Barrett : I'm sorry, I don't believe in any of those things.

    Dr. Peter Venkman : Well, that's all right. I don't either.

  • Dana Barrett : [reading from the printout]  "Zuul was the minion of Gozer." What's Gozer?

    Dr. Peter Venkman : Gozer was very big in Sumeria.

    Dana Barrett : Well, what's he doing in my ice box?

    Dr. Peter Venkman : I'm working on that.

  • Dr. Peter Venkman : Let me tell you something about myself. 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.

    Dana Barrett : Yes. We both have the same problem. You!

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

    Dana Barrett : I don't believe this. Will you please leave?

    Dr. Peter Venkman : [to an invisible audience]  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.

    Dana Barrett : You are so odd.

  • Dana Barrett : You know, you don't act like a scientist.

    Dr. Peter Venkman : They're usually pretty stiff.

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

  • [Dana, possessed by "The Gatekeeper," answers the door] 

    Dana Barrett : Are you the Keymaster?

    Dr. Peter Venkman : Not that I know of.

    [She slams the door in his face. Venkman knocks again] 

    Dana Barrett : Are you the Keymaster?

    Dr. Peter Venkman : Yes. Actually I'm a friend of his, he asked me to meet him here.

  • [Inspecting Dana's refrigerator for paranormal activity] 

    Dr. Peter Venkman : Oh, my *God*. Look at all the junk food!

    Dana Barrett : No, goddammit. Look, this wasn't...

    Dr. Peter Venkman : You actually eat this stuff?

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

    Dr. Peter Venkman : I'm sorry, I'm just not getting any readings.

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

    Dr. Peter Venkman : Well, I... I think so, but I'm sure there are no animals in there.

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

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

    Dana Barrett : [sarcastically]  Oh, good, that makes me feel so much better.

  • Dr. Peter Venkman : I guess the roses worked, huh?

    Dana Barrett : [possessed by Zuul]  Take me now, subcreature.

  • Dana Barrett : [gets off the elevator and Louis comes out of his apartment] 

    Louis : Oh, Dana, it's you!

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

    Louis : I thought it was the drugstore.

    Dana Barrett : Oh, are you sick?

    Louis : Oh! No, no, I'm fine, I feel great! Just ordered some more vitamins and stuff. I was just exercising. I taped a 20-minute workout and played it back at high speed on my machine so it only took ten minutes. I got a great workout.

    Dana Barrett : Good...

    Louis : You wanna come in for a mineral water or something?

    Dana Barrett : Oh, I'd really like to, Louis, but I have to go rehearsal now. Excuse me.

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

    Dana Barrett : [dryly]  Yeah, I know that...

    Louis : Listen, that reminds me, 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.

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

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

    Dana Barrett : That's strange, I didn't realize I'd left it on.

    [unlocks her door] 

    Louis : [droning on]  Well yeah, you know what I did? 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 my TV up real loud too so everyone would think all our TVs had something wrong with them.

    Dana Barrett : [abruptly closing her door]  Bye, Louis.

    Louis : [alone again]  Okay, so I'll see you later, huh? I'll give you a call! I'm going to go have a shower.

    [tries to go back into his apartment but he's locked himself out] 

  • [Dana is possessed] 

    Dr. Peter Venkman : So, what are we doing today, Zuul?

    Dana Barrett : We must prepare for the coming of Gozer.

    Dr. Peter Venkman : Gozer huh?

    Dana Barrett : The Destructor.

    [long pause] 

    Dr. Peter Venkman : Are we still going out?

  • Louis : [possessed by Vinz Clortho]  I am The Keymaster!

    Dana Barrett : [possessed by Zuul]  I am The Gatekeeper!
