* The opening baby-carriage scene in ''[=GB=] 2'' seems incongruous, considering the BigBad of the film wants Oscar ''alive''. But if you think of it as something the little bit of "mood slime" that got on its wheels did on its own, it makes sense: it only starts to move when Dana's building super agrees to help Dana with her grocery bags. As it'd already picked up some negative energy from the bickering people she'd walked past, it was repelled by the man's helpfulness and moved the carriage away. Then Dana's own MamaBear concern for her child charged it up further, keeping it in motion until it got far enough ahead to be out of range. Luckily for Oscar, that was ''before'' it could roll in front of the oncoming bus.

* The opening baby-carriage scene in ''[=GB=] 2'' seems like incongruous, considering the BigBad of the film wants Oscar ''alive''. But if you think of it as something the little bit of "mood slime" that got on its wheels did on its own, it makes sense: it only starts to move when Dana's building super agrees to help Dana with her grocery bags.

** Alternately, it's not liquid because it's hot, it's liquid because it's ''disintegrating'' now that Gozer's spirit has been banished when the gateway collapsed.

** Alternately, it's not liquid because it's hot, it's liquid because it's ''disintegrating'' now that Gozer's spirit has been banished when the gateway collapsed. It's basically marshmallow-colored ectoplasmic slime, not genuine marshmallow.

\n* In the ContinuityReboot, several of Holtzmann's sidearm gadgets don't seem like that big of a tactical improvement on the proton packs, and some have clear disadvantages (e.g. [[spoiler: Abby's ghost-punching gauntlet requires close range; the grenades demand an accurate throw and are less precise]]). However, the new equipment is also a lot less prone to collateral property-damage than the standard particle beams, and one such item - [[spoiler: Patty's "ghost-shredder"]] - actually appears to acccomplish something that the original continuity's [=GBs=] ''never'' managed to do: [[spoiler: it ''destroys'' the demon-ghost outright, rather than just trapping or banishing it]].

\n* If you look closely at the "magnificent feast" the group is eating just before their first real call, Egon is drinking soda, while the others have beer. Seems odd, until you realize they're still "on call," and if they need to drive out (which they do), one of them needs to be sober.

*** This is later expanded on in the animated series, as the containment unit is shown as a place all but the most incorrigible ghosts actually greatly prefer to the living world - a quiet, peaceful existence free of all the things that can piss off a traumatized human being lacking a physical body. It's often implied to be a scientific equivalent to a ''very'' high quality resting place; as in a ''pharaoh's tomb''. Ghosts have been known to seek the 'Busters out just so they can go in of their own free will. It also happens to be BiggerOnTheInside, to the point it is basically it's own self-contained alternate dimension.

Big enough that even the troublemakers can dick around in their own corner and leave the rest of the inhabitants along.

** Maybe Venkman only knew Hoover's name, and had never bothered to look at a picture of the former FBI chief. Come to think of it, a recognizable name with no physical appearance attached to it wouldn't be a bad solution to 'thinking of nothing.'

* Why is it that the Ghostbusters were accused as frauds in the second film when clearly the ghost were running rampant during the final act of the film and everyone clearly saw a 100ft Marshmallow Man causing destruction in NY? Not to mention why didn't the Ghostbusters counter sue when it wasn't them that released the Ghostbusters from the containment unit?
