Ew, Mom, I’m trying to eat breakfast.

Almost done.

Aw, your mustache is really coming in.

Mom!

[ELECTRICAL BUZZING]

Phoebe!

Ow!

I’m bleeding! You made me bleed!

You’ll live. Phoebe!

Oh! What are you doing?

Neighbor’s electricity is running out of phase.

I tied in, bumped us up to 220.

Take that off.

Now I can run my lathe.

And you didn’t think to ask me?

I mean, you just demonstrate zero aptitude for science.

Uh-huh, got it.

You’re better at other things.

Like quesadillas.

My hair dryer.

Your quesadillas are excellent.

Thank you.

[KNOCKING ON DOOR]

Now what?

TREVOR: Mom!

[SIGHS]

Really? You don’t have legs?

TREVOR: I’m not an adult.

I’m literally driving to pick up a check right now.

You win lottery?

Kind of. My father died.

Relax. I didn’t even know him.

I’m surprised he left me anything.

Sounds like my father.

Yeah?

Did your dad abandon your family and move to a farm in the middle of nowhere?

No.

Look, I… I know I have not been a reliable or consistent tenant.

But if you give me a week to settle loose ends, I’ll be back with everything I owe.

[THUD, LIGHTS CLICKING]

I can fix that!

Listen, I wait for you to leave, then I change locks.

There it is. This is Summerville.

This is where your grandfather lived.

And died.

Ah, come on. Not a single bar?

There’d better be a bar.

[CHUCKLES SOFTLY]

That’s funny.

[♪♪♪]

“Behold,

“there was a great earthquake.

“The sun became as black as cloth,

“the seas boiled,

“the moon became as blood,

“the skies fell.

Revelation 6:12.”

That was normal.

Hey, maybe it’s a good thing you never met your dad.

[WEATHER VANE CREAKING]

Great. You didn’t tell us we inherited a murder house.

And just think.

Now all of this is ours.

Pheebs, be a dear and break into your grandfather’s house.

[WIND WHISTLING]

CALLIE: Nice.

Oh, boy.

[SCOFFS]

Not a single photo.

[♪♪♪]

Rats.

You gotta see the gold mine of junk I found out back.

Great.

Oh, my God, this is so much worse than I thought it was gonna be.

[RUMBLING]

Under the dining table now!

Phoebe.

Remember that summer we died under a table?

Of course this place is built on a fault line.

Probably just fracking.

It’s fracking annoying, is what it is.

It’s okay, we’re only here for a week.

Um, give or take.

What does that mean?

It means we’re staying.

TREVOR: You said we’d only be here for a week!

Yeah, well, that was before we got evicted.

You said you had money saved up.

That was before I had children.

Oh!

To be fair, you’ve never been good with money.

CALLIE: Thanks, Pheebs.

[SIGHS]

What’s that?

How am I supposed to know?

[DOOR OPENS]

Can I help you?

[♪♪♪]

Um, hi. We’re… We’re the, um… The…

This was my father’s place.

Hi.

BOTH: Hi.

I’m, uh, Janine Melnitz. We spoke on the phone.

I was your father’s…

You know, we were friends.

Very sorry for your loss.

It’s okay.

You knew him better than me. I should be sorry for your loss.

I just tried to keep the bills paid on time, that kind of thing.

Like a money manager?

Oh, there was no money to manage.

He could barely keep the power on.

[CHUCKLES SOFTLY]

So he left us nothing?

Well, I wouldn’t say that.

There is quite a bit of debt.

Ms. Melnitz, I’m here to sign forms, pack the silverware and leave with a rent check.

Are you telling me this place is worthless?

You mean, aside from the sentimental value?

[THE SHIRELLE’S “BABY IT’S YOU” PLAYING]

♪ Sha la la la la ♪

Are you going to that thing later?

Yeah, probably.

Where’s my order?

I can’t believe a place like this still exists.

I can’t believe we have to spend a summer in this heap.

We have lives.

You don’t think I have a life?

No. You’re a mom. You live for us.

Oh.

♪ When, baby, it’s you ♪

Hey. Maybe you will make a friend out here.

Make them out of what?

I’m serious.

A new home could be an opportunity to start fresh.

Just keep an open mind.

[COIN CLINKS]

[OTIS RUSH’S “ALL YOUR LOVE (I MISS LOVING)” PLAYS]

Two taters, three Spinners, grilled onions, one no cheese.

Lucky, there’s… There’s something wrong with the meat.

I don’t feel so good, Lucky. Oh!

There’s something wrong.

He’s throwing up the meat!

Heh-heh-heh!

Cool place.

Yeah, I’ll use that.

I don’t own it.

I know you don’t own it.

You look pretty young to own a business.

I saw the sign out front. “Help wanted”?

I… I can be helpful.

Under experience, you put “friendly” with a smiley face?

I didn’t really know what to put.

I don’t think “friendly” qualifies as an experience.

It’s a quality, I guess.

How old are you?

Seventeen.

Think you can put in a good word for me?

I can tell them you have a pulse.

My name’s Trevor.

BOTH: My name’s Trevor.

Dude, that was great.

Dude, that was really cute.

You have a chance with her. You really do.

Mmm.

So where you heading?

We’re staying, actually.

You know that farmhouse off the highway with the barn?

Dirt? It was my father’s.

Dirt Farmer had a family?

You knew my father?

[SCOFFS]

No one knew your father.

Well, I’m sure he’ll be missed.

Nope.

Whoa!

What’s up, Casanova?

[ALL LAUGHING]

[WIND WHISTLING SOFTLY]

[♪♪♪]

[BOTTLES TINKLING]

Ow.

[COYOTE YIPS IN DISTANCE]

[TREVOR SIGHS]

Damn it.

[♪♪♪]

[WHISPERS] What?

CALLIE: Come on! Bus leaves in 15!

[♪♪♪]

Hey, Pheebs, at school today, don’t be afraid to just start a conversation.

Are you kidding? That’s horrible advice.

You’re literally setting her up for failure.

Hey, how are the jokes coming along?

Why should you never trust atoms?

Because they make up everything.

That’s funny.

No, it’s not.

You can drop me off here.

Are you embarrassed?

Yeah. Bye.

[HORN HONKS]

CALLIE: Love you!

That almost killed you.

Yeah, with your face.

What’s wrong? You love school.

I love learning.

This is a state-sponsored work camp for delinquents.

Fine. You can help me scrape asbestos out of the attic.

I’ll take my chances with public education.

Hey, don’t be yourself.

You okay?

Ah, yeah. First day.

Can you imagine who they’ve got teaching summer school?

I can. I teach here.

Oh, I’m so sorry.

No, it’s okay. It’s…

Most of the kids that go here, they’re not very bright.

Hey, Colin.

He’s…

I can kind of do whatever I want.

Score.

Right?

Mm.

Dream job.

Mm-hm.

[CHUCKLES]

Good morning, class. How’s everybody doing today?

My name’s Mr. Grooberson.

Um…

I know.

You don’t wanna be here.

I don’t wanna be here either.

Now, apparently, your, uh, school is still operating on VHS, but, um, I found this gem in the teachers’ lounge.

It’s great. It’s called Cujo.

It’s about a rabid Saint Bernard that…

You know what? I don’t wanna give too much away.

But imagine Beethoven if he contracted rabies and just started mauling children.

You’ll get an idea.

Enjoy.

[MUSIC PLAYING ON TV]

[RECORDER CLICKS]

Speeding. Three, two, one.

She sits alone.

An outcast, rejected by her peers.

But what is her secret?

Perhaps she’s on the run.

On the run… from herself.

And go.

Actually, my grandfather died.

My mom says we’re here to pick through the rubble of his life.

So you’re here to uncover the mystery of his death?

No.

It was natural causes.

Are you sure it wasn’t unnatural causes?

Yes.

Pretty sure it was just a heart attack.

Oh, the silent killer.

I’m Phoebe.

Oh, cool. Uh, I’m Podcast.

Why do people call you Podcast?

Oh, I call myself Podcast. Because of my podcast.

[SCANNER BEEPS]

Doing some painting?

Mm, yeah.

Whereabouts you staying?

Um, that old apocalyptic ranch off of 99.

It was my father’s place.

Dirt Farmer had a family?

You all called him the Dirt Farmer?

Meant nothing by it.

Man spends every week working a piece of land… but never seeding, never watering, never growing a ding-dang thing.

It’s curious behavior.

Great customer though.

He… He bought some bizarre shit.

[BEEPS]

Yeah, that sounds like him.

[DOG GROWLING, WOMAN WHIMPERING]

[RUMBLING]

[WOMAN SCREAMS]

What is this?

Hello.

Um, you know, there’s a highly entertaining movie about a killer dog happening right over there.

Is this a seismic map?

Yes.

How did you know that?

It’s a map of seismic activity.

Right. But…

You’re a seismologist?

Does that seem so hard to believe?

Figured you for a football coach.

Oh.

Um, thank you.

These don’t look tectonic or volcanic.

[CHUCKLES]

Okay, smarty.

Here, check this out.

This is a volcano, all right?

It builds and crests.

But this is a tectonic earthquake.

Notice a little P-wave followed by a large S wave.

Yeah, I’m not an idiot.

Clearly. Well, this is the pattern in Summerville.

Large P-wave, small S wave. Like an explosion.

Where is it coming from?

I don’t know. I don’t know.

I set up geophones, but I can’t triangulate.

Are you using three?

Yeah.

I know how many sides there are in a triangle.

I just thought you were being obtuse.

Was that a geometry joke?

Yes, that’s why I winked.

Ah.

Uh, that’s terrible.

No, I loved it.

Look at this. I mean, somehow, a town that isn’t anywhere near a tectonic plate, that has no underground volcanic activity, no fault lines, no fracking, no loud music even, is shaking on a daily basis.

Maybe it’s the apocalypse.

[THE NEWDAY’S “WAIT A MINUTE GIRL” PLAYING]

Twenty-three, 24, 25.

[TREVOR SHIVERING]

Hey, no-skills. How’s inventory?

Oh, hey, how’s it going? No, it’s not good.

It’s not good at all. Um…

Does everyone do this?

Yeah, it’s important.

You okay?

Your lips are literally blue.

Yeah, I’m fine.

You should borrow my hoodie.

No, it’s fine. Seriously.

It’s really masculine.

It’s got a wolf on it. Trust me.

Okay.

I’m kind of surprised it fits me.

Yeah, it’s my boyfriend’s, actually.

Oh.

Back to inventory.

[BOYS LAUGHING]

Okay, we’re speeding. Three, two, one.

Uh, yeah, just introduce yourself and tell me what you ate for breakfast.

Um, Phoebe.

Toast.

Okay, um, maybe a little more. Tell me a joke or something.

A joke?

Mm-hm.

What do you call a dead polar bear?

[GRUNTS SOFTLY]

Anything you want.

It can’t hear you now.

[LAUGHS]

Wow. That was funny.

You’re funny.

It’s a pretty hilarious joke.

Fun fact: Did you know Summerville has more dead residents than living ones?

Yeah, that’s how cemeteries work.

Wertheimers Hardware, run by the Illuminati.

Lizard people.

Lizard people?

Jefferson, Einstein, Beyoncé?

How do you think we got the pyramids?

Slaves?

Movie theater.

That one’s haunted.

I don’t believe in ghosts.

What? How can you…?

I mean, all the evidence! You don’t believe in spirits?

No.

I think we’re all just kind of meat puppets.

There’s something you need to see.

I’ll grab my wheels.

[♪♪♪]

PHOEBE: Are we even allowed to be here?

Oh, yeah. Totally.

The mine’s been closed since the ’40s.

They just put all these signs up ’cause of hazardous chemical leaks and on account of dynamite.

I do this. Hmm.

The whole town was basically a mining operation.

They bore out this mountain like a grapefruit and smelted everything into cold-riveted selenium girders.

Why would you make a steel beam out of an electro conductor like selenium?

Right?

Weird.

Until one day, they were forced to close down the whole enchilada.

Why?

One by one, miners who had worked for years began leaping down the mine shaft to their death.

They called it…

[WHISPERS] the Shandorian curse.

PHOEBE: Who built these?

PODCAST: Depends who you believe.

One day, they just showed up without explanation.

Cool.

[SOCKET WRENCH CLICKING]

[♪♪♪]

What a shitbox.

So, what’s your podcast about?

Oh, um, mostly mysteries and the unknown, uh, conspiracy theories, the occasional restaurant review.

Well, maybe I could check it out sometime.

Really?

Yeah.

The show really finds its voice on Episode 46.

Okay.

Uh, hey.

Look, this is totally cool if this is a no.

Uh, zero “presh.”

Uh, but, um… do you wanna be my lab partner?

Well, I don’t think we’re gonna be doing any labs, but yeah.

Yeah, sure, I’d love to.

Cool, cool. All right.

Yeah.

Well, this is me.

The Dirt Farmer’s house?

Yeah, he was my grandfather.

No way, dude!

So you’re just gonna walk in?

[PHONE BEEPS]

Are you recording me?

Yeah, just in case your body’s pulled apart into tiny pieces by an unseen dark force.

All right. Bye.

[WOMAN SCREAMS, CHUCKY YELLING]

[PODCAST SIGHS]

I need to know what’s lurking inside.

No way. Killer replica.

Totally.

A replica of what?

A trap.

A ghost trap.

Seriously? How do you of all people not know about this?

I’m ashamed.

Oh, I was obsessed.

New York in the ’80s, it was like The Walking Dead.

Then it just stopped?

Mm-hm.

I mean, there hasn’t been a ghost sighting in 30 years.

[TRAP CREAKS]

[ELECTRICITY CRACKLES]

Wait a minute.

This thing is real?

Absolutely.

Maybe.

I found it in my living room.

She lives on the Dirt Farm.

Oh, the really spooky one?

Yeah, the one that says “dirt” on it.

What happened in New York?

GROOBERSON: The whole city was freaking out.

Then these physicists showed up with these portable proton accelerators and blew the roof off of a Manhattan high-rise.

[CROWD CHEERING]

[♪♪♪]

None of this rings a bell?

It happened 20 years before we were born.

I believe it.

CROWD [CHANTING]: Ghostbusters!

Ghostbusters! Ghostbusters!

I mean, your, uh, dad never mentioned this?

It’s just my mom.

Oh, just your mom. Oh.

Um, cool.

“Cool”?

I wonder if this still works.

Should we open it?

[SCHOOL BELL RINGS]

[♪♪♪]

Glasses.

Two millimeters of plastic eye protection?

Are you sure this is safe?

Safe?

Heh, no.

No.

History is safe.

Geometry, that’s safe.

Science is all particle accelerators and hydrogen bombs.

Science is giving yourself the plague and gambling on the cure.

Science is reckless.

Totally! Yes! It’s punk rock.

It’s a safety pin through the nipple of academia.

Ouch.

Fire it up.

[ENGINE STARTS]

[ELECTRICITY CRACKLES]

[SIGHS]

I’ve always wanted to do this.

[♪♪♪]

[GROWLS]

[SCREAMS]

[♪♪♪]

[GHOST ROARS]

Yes!

[CAR ALARMS BLARING]

Uh…

we should probably get out of here.

You’re an adult.

Yeah.

And liable.

You know what this means, right?

Your grandfather was a Ghostbuster.

Yes, I’m aware.

[♪♪♪]

[RECORDER BEEPS]

It has a door and windows, like any ordinary house.

But the distinct smell of evil…

[SNIFFS]

[WHISPERS] …is prominent.

What are you doing?

Oh, um, giving a little color.

Setting the mood.

It’s creepy. I dig it.

Wow.

Cool.

Whoa. Aztec death whistle.

It’s designed to ward off evil spirits.

It’s got a really horrifying sound…

[WHISTLE SCREECHING]

What…?

Um, what the hell is that?

Aztec death whistle. Can I keep it?

Yes, please. Just don’t do that again.

Hi.

Hello again.

You brought them home.

It’s a service I provide.

Are…?

Well, I’m also an escort.

Mmm…?

That came out wrong.

Kind of… Yep.

The truth is, I’ve always wondered what lurked inside this haunt box.

Right. Well, the only thing lurking inside here is my slowly dying soul.

Is that what that smell is?

Well, it’s not dinner, so…

Well, all right.

[GROOBERSON & CALLIE CHUCKLE]

Um, would you…

Sure.

…like…?

Yeah.

I don’t have any food.

It’s fine.

Okay, tour.

Great.

Great.

CALLIE: Here’s the dining room.

I think Grooberson’s trying to bone your mom.

Oh.

That doesn’t bother you?

No, of course it bothers me.

I just don’t exhibit emotions the same way everyone else does.

Inside, I’m vomiting.

Wait.

Isn’t this what we saw earlier?

“The Sumerians believed in a land of the dead, a dark and shadowy realm within the bowels of the earth. The souls of the dead are ruled by a mighty god, Gozer, and protected by a powerful Gatekeeper and Keymaster, in order that Gozer might rise up and walk the human plane again. The Gatekeeper and Keymaster must assume the form of beasts.”

What did we let out?

[FUNKADELIC’S “CAN YOU GET TO THAT” PLAYING]

Yum.

Has this ever been cleaned before?

Not by me.

We’re heading up the mountain.

You coming?

[GUNSHOT]

[ALL CHUCKLE]

BOY: It’s not funny.

What are you doing here in Summerville anyway?

Honestly, my mom won’t say it, but we’re broke.

We got evicted, and the only thing that’s left in our name is this creepy, old farmhouse our grandfather left us in the middle of nowhere.

No offense.

I’m not offended.

This place is a dump.

Then why do you live here?

I’m fourth-generation dump, so…

Oh.

You think you’ll ever leave?

I mean, if I don’t, what does that say about me?

You don’t have a car.

[CHUCKLES]

What the hell? Get out.

[♪♪♪]

[LOW RUMBLING]

What was that?

[BREATHING HEAVILY]

[ALL LAUGHING]

BOY: It’s not funny.

GROOBERSON: What is this?

That’s a map.

Yeah, I know it’s a…

A map. But this…

This thing’s ancient. It’s written in a kind of cuneiform.

Oh, yeah?

This is Summerville.

That doesn’t make sense.

No, not at all.

Summerville’s not even 100 years old, but this is written in a language from thousands of years ago.

For all I know, that’s the language he spoke.

That’s it?

You don’t think this is incredible and bizarre and fascinating?

Can I have this?

Yeah, sure. Weirdo.

That’s how it starts. First there’s a map.

Then you move into a haunted house.

Then everyone’s calling you the Dirt Farmer.

What about Phoebe? Think she’d want any of this?

Oh, I’m sure Phoebe will find something.

Are you troubled by strange noises in the night?

Do you experience feelings of dread in your basement or attic?

What kind of scientist was Grandpa?

The kind that repels loved ones.

Maybe a physicist?

Sure.

So tomorrow I was thinking of grabbing dinner with Gary.

Who’s Gary?

Mr. Grooberson.

His name is Gary Grooberson?

You have a date with Gary Grooberson.

It’s just dinner.

Good night, Phoebe.

I mean, no offense, but you are 12.

I kind of met my grandfather last night.

He showed me what to do.

No way. Was he, like, howling and clanking chains?

No. That would’ve been weird.

It sounds crazy, but Oklahoma never had earthquakes. For centuries.

But then, between 2010 and 2016, they had like a thousand.

Oh, jeez, what happened?

Oil and gas, that’s what happened.

Yeah, they started pumping millions of gallons of salinated water deep into the Arbuckle Formation.

And then the porous limestone…

Are you drunk? Or are you just really bored?

Because I think I can see you falling asleep.

Uh, I just have, uh, an allergy to science.

Uh-huh. Have you tried Benadryl?

I’ve tried, um, whiskey.

It’s better than Benadryl.

But science is amazing. Science is pure.

It’s an absolute.

I mean, it’s an answer to all the madness.

Why don’t you like science?

Was, uh… Was Phoebe’s dad a scientist, or…?

Oh, gross. No.

No?

I’m making an assumption.

What’s his deal?

Honestly, I don’t… It doesn’t matter.

He was fine with Trevor, but with Phoebe, he just really…

He couldn’t connect with her, so…

Right. Well, he sounds like a royal dirtbag.

Oh, no, he was actually just a very ordinary dirtbag.

Well, hey, at least, uh, Phoebe turned out okay, right?

I hope so.

I don’t know.

She really keeps me on the outside.

She’s just an awkward, nerdy kid, but she’s awesome.

I think she’s great.

I think you’re great. You’re a great mom.

Yeah. You showed up. You win.

I just wish she’d relax, you know?

Just get into some trouble.

There’s plenty of time for that.

Maybe she’ll take up pole dancing.

She’s not very coordinated.

Oh, I don’t think that matters.

[♪♪♪]

So, what the hell is going on?

In the 1980s, New York City was attacked.

I know the Manhattan ghost stories.

The stories are real.

Yeah, and so were the guys who climbed a building and saved the world and fought back an invading army of the undead.

Not to mention a 100-foot marshmallow man.

Our grandfather was Egon Spengler.

He was a Ghostbuster.

DISPATCHER [OVER RADIO]: All units, we’re getting reports of, well, some kind of animal taking a bite out of Steve Fletcher’s truck.

Apparently, he almost took the whole tailgate off?

Muncher.

Muncher.

What do you mean?

Dude, your grandfather was a legend.

You can literally be anything you want.

Like a influencer or a DJ.

It was easier when I thought he went nuts.

He didn’t go nuts.

Exactly.

So why did he leave Mom?

[SIREN WAILS]

Oh, no, no, no.

We’re screwed. We’re so screwed.

What do we do?

I say we fight.

What? No. Just check the glove box.

License and registration.

TREVOR: We were on that big mountain, and I went to go hang out with this girl in this mining cage.

All of a sudden, it started shaking, like an earthquake.

And there were lights, and then I looked down in this giant hole.

Inside of it, right in the middle of it, was either a person or a reptile…

Are you even paying attention?

Yeah. I’m just excited we’re in jail.

I thought I heard something say, “Gozer.”

He speaks the truth. I was there.

Hey. Hi. How…? What brings you here?

Actually, you could help me with hiding something.

Yeah, yeah.

Do you have priors?

‘Cause they’ll charge you as a minor.

You’ll get two years. Max.

Two?

I’ll visit you, okay?

Lucky.

Quit messing with my inmates.

Sorry, Dad.

“Dad.” So you’re just…

Waiting for my ride. Yeah.

But you look good behind bars.

Hey. Don’t we get a phone call?

Sure you do.

Who you gonna call?

Make it quick.

[♪♪♪]

Do you experience feelings of dread in your basement or attic?

Have you or any of your family ever seen a spook, specter, or ghost?

If the answer is yes, then don’t wait another minute.

Pick up your phone and call the professionals.

[RINGING]

[GROWLS]

Ray’s Occult, and we’re closed.

PHOEBE: Wait! I only get one phone call.

I’m…

in prison.

Hmm.

The slammer, huh? I’ve been there myself.

I’m not a lawyer, but I’m listening.

Are you Ray Stantz, the Ghostbuster?

And now I’m hanging up.

Hang on. Please.

I… I’m calling about Egon Spengler.

Egon Spengler can rot in hell.

He died last week.

[SIGHS]

Oh, man.

No kidding.

Weren’t you two friends?

That was a long time ago.

What happened to you guys?

[SIGHS, SCOFFS]

Oh, well, look, when we started, busting ghosts was a gas.

The economy was good. Reagan years.

People believed in us.

Then things got slow, hauntings got thin.

Venkman thought we did our job too well.

We could barely keep up our mortgage.

Some actor bought up most of Tribeca, and we lost the firehouse.

It’s a Starbucks now.

So then you all just walked away?

Peter went back to academia.

He’s at SUNY Cortland now. He’s a professor emeritus.

He teaches advertising and promotion.

Winston went into finance.

He worked hard, coined a fortune and…

And I’m here.

Well, what about Egon?

Well, he wasn’t helping.

We went from ten calls a week to one if we were lucky.

Egon started to tell people that their ghost problems didn’t matter because the world was coming to an end.

He got spooky. Freaked me out.

One morning, I go to work and Ecto-1, our old Cadillac, is gone, his neutrona thrower, collider pack, all the traps, 16 ounces of fuel isotope, all gone!

He cleaned us out.

Now we were the dead ones.

Don’t you think he had a reason?

He phoned me about ten years later, some small town in Oklahoma.

He kept rambling about “the rising storm” and “the huge psychic tornado” that was gonna “consume humanity in darkness forever.”

[SIGHS] And, kid, I wanted to believe.

You don’t understand. There is this mountain and it has these ancient carvings…

Kid, there are a lot of mountains with ancient carvings.

Take a little advice.

Don’t go chasing ghosts.

Egon Spengler was my grandfather.

Time’s up.

Hey, hello?

[CLICKING SWITCH HOOK]

Where are my kids?

They’re in the lockup.

My children are not criminals.

Sure they’re not.

Driving without a license.

Expired registration. Speeding.

They can’t be the first to go joyriding.

No, they are not. But they are the first to destroy half of Main Street with whatever that thing is.

Whoa!

Sorry.

What were you thinking?

You know, you two could have really hurt yourselves.

Hey. I’m Gary.

SHERIFF: You process them out yet?

Did you catch anything?

It’s inside the trap.

Right now?

Yes.

Let’s go. You were supposed to look after her this summer.

I was?

Not you. Him.

This was her idea.

But what about our stuff? The Ecto-1?

Everything will remain nice and safe in our impound locker.

No! We need it.

Phoebe, let’s go.

We caught a ghost tonight.

[SHERIFF CHUCKLES]

Dirt Farmer’s family.

It’s true.

And there will be more.

You’re starting to sound like your lunatic grandfather.

[POWERING UP]

Phoebe! She didn’t mean it.

You wanna spend the night in my jail?

[♪♪♪]

You can… You can keep it.

Go. Now.

Trevor.

I’ll see you at work.

Yeah. See you.

Hey.

All right, you guys.

Remember that…

[CALLIE SCOFFS]

Yeah, you got it.

[CHUCKLES]

I’m sorry the night went sideways.

No. I-I had a blast.

Why don’t we just pick it up tomorrow night, same time.

You really want more of this?

Are you kidding me?

We had kung pao shrimp. We went to jail.

I don’t know how we’re gonna top this. This is a home run.

[CHUCKLES]

Um, my life is a dumpster fire.

I love dumpster fires. You should see my apartment.

I don’t mean now. Or a-anytime soon.

You don’t want to… I’d need to clean…

This is moving way too fast. You gotta just relax.

The kids hungry? They want some of this, uh, unrefrigerated shrimp?

[DOOR CLOSES]

[FOOTSTEPS APPROACHING]

We’re barely hanging on here.

You don’t understand.

I understand you drove around town, destroying expensive property.

Don’t you think your father came out here for a reason?

No.

No. I think he was a sad old man who turned his back on his family, his partners.

And for what? For a stupid farm in a town nobody cares about.

Where, by the way, everybody thought he was nuts.

Yeah, great decision, Dad.

He was special. He loved science, like me.

Why didn’t you tell me my grandfather was Egon Spengler?

[♪♪♪]

Hey, I’m glad you found yourself here. I really am.

But all I see are reminders that I didn’t mean a thing to him.

He never cared about me.

He’s not nuts.

Well, then he’s an asshole.

Welcome to the family.

TREVOR: Okay, so, what exactly is happening with the map?

See the concentric circles around the mountain?

No.

Do you see the circles?

Yes.

Something’s happening inside that old mine.

Yeah. I know that. It’s pretty obvious.

So I did some digging on the word you heard in the mountain. “Gozer.”

You did some digging?

Gozer was a Sumerian god who once walked amongst the living.

A soul-eating, flame-dripping deity of evil.

And I think it wants back.

Here?

I know. I would’ve picked Orlando.

What does the name Ivo Shandor mean to you guys?

Ivo Shandor? He built this whole town.

He built the mine, foundry, the school, library.

His name is on everything.

That’s tacky.

In New York, he created an apartment building made out of selenium girders, mined from right here.

On that same rooftop is where our grandfather fought to keep a horde of ghosts from entering our dimension.

Phoebe, what exactly is happening here?

I can only think of one way for us to find out.

[ELEVATOR RUMBLING]

[WHIRRING, CREAKING]

So, what do a cigarette and hamster have in common?

What?

They’re both harmless until you stick one in your mouth and light it on fire.

Hey, guys, look.

TREVOR: Is that her?

Is that Gozer?

PHOEBE: Gozer isn’t he or she.

Pretty woke for 3000 BC.

TREVOR: Everyone watch their steps.

Another hole?

TREVOR: I wonder where this one leads to.

A sacrificial death pit.

What were they sacrificing?

Virgins, probably.

Tough luck for you, dude. Sorry.

Well, statistically, most 15-year-olds are virgins.

Shh! Oh…

Fifteen? You’re 15?

I’ll be 16 in February.

It’s June.

What are those holes in the wall?

They’re vacancies.

If this is a tomb, where are all the bodies?

Found one.

Oh.

What?

Oh, my God.

Is he sleeping?

Dude, he’s in a coffin.

PODCAST: It’s Ivo Shandor. He’s been in here for 75 years?

He looks fantastic.

You know when you die, your fingernails keep growing.

Not true. Your skin just shrinks.

PHOEBE: Something was coming and he knew it.

I think these are years.

1883.

The Krakatoa eruption.

The most violent volcanic activity in human history.

TREVOR: What happened in 1908?

PODCAST: Probably the Tunguska blast over Siberia.

1945.

What didn’t happen?

1984.

Ghosts attack New York City.

The Manhattan Crossrip.

It’s a countdown.

What?

Nothing.

This is what he’s been working on all those years.

TREVOR: Building this model?

LUCKY: The detail is amazing.

No, he came here to finish what the original Ghostbusters started.

To trap Gozer…

Out in that dirt field.

Exactly. These big silos act as a capacitor.

What’s a capacitor?

Would it kill you to read?

Would it kill you to just tell me?

Once activated, these towers can hold a charge for one moment.

But in that one moment, they can power hundreds of traps.

So how do we get Gozer into the field?

Gozer’s protected by two evil spirits.

The Keymaster and the Gatekeeper.

She needs both of them. No Gatekeeper, no Gozer.

First these spirits must possess two human souls.

Like Mom.

So they can unite… formally.

What are we talking about?

We’re thinking at least third base.

Go, Mom.

So a grasshopper walks into a bar… and the bartender’s like: “We have a drink named after you.”

I want you to take this.

What is it?

It’s a souvenir from the World’s Fair at Flushing Meadow in 1964.

It’s my lucky coin.

I shouldn’t take it. We might not be coming back.

Take it anyway. I got another one at home.

WINSTON: Egon was the brains.

Ray was the heart.

Peter just kept it cool.

[JANINE CHUCKLES]

JANINE: Who were you?

The sex appeal.

[BOTH CHUCKLE]

You’ve done very well for yourself.

A lot of shelf space.

See, that’s the thing.

I don’t do it for me.

I do it for my kids, and I wanna be an example of what’s possible.

You still covering the rent at Ray’s bookshop?

[CHUCKLES] Ray’s gonna turn a profit one of these days.

JANINE [CHUCKLES]: I remember the day you came in.

WINSTON: I came in looking for a steady paycheck.

But busting ghosts with the guys… taught me not to be afraid.

That I had the tools and I had the talent.

I started this business with one employee.

And I’ve grown it into a thriving global enterprise.

I may be a businessman, but I will always be a Ghostbuster.
