* There was an episode that explained it in flashback, IIRC it was them telling the story to a reporter of how Slimer became their TeamPet, after killing Gozer they went home, took off there marshmallow covered jumpsuits and tossed them in a box in the basement, where a leak from the containment unit caused the gunk to reform into the animated version of Stay Puff, which they busted, trapped, and stored.

One episode had a FreezeFrameBonus where the one on the back door winked, and a few seasons later the one on the passenger side was seen to remove the diagonal bar in the episode "My Left Fang".

The Ghostbuster themselves seem to have no other manner of getting rid of ghosts other than putting them into the Containment Unit and on various occasions there have been the problem of what happens when all the ghosts get out of the Containment Unit at once and it's not too dissimilar from what happened with this door. It seems like the Containment Unit would have to be kept intact for the rest of time, leaving a problem of how to warn future civilisations. It's a problem that comes up in nuclear waste disposal and it seems to come up with the warning stone and the door itself which says "Do not open until doomsday"

A lot of people assume from lines in "The Thing in Mrs. Faversham's Attic" that Peter's mother is dead. However, lines from later episodes ("My mother reads ''Celebrity'' magazine!" for one.) suggest that she's still living. Possibly, Peter remembers how sad and lonely his mother was when his father ran off to chase the latest Get Rich Quick scheme. She eventually got tired of being in a relationship of one and asked for a divorce. Peter never forgot how heartbroken his mother was. A combination of this plus some missed holidays and visitation weekends further strained Peter's relationship with his father. Mama Venkeman is alive and well, lives upstate and tries to find happiness in her present life, but was turned off the idea of marriage. Peter tries to visit her when he can, though his job means he can't as often as he'd like. (He at least manages to phone her on her birthday and Mother's Day.)

The restraining order forbade the 'Busters from making money while ghostbusting. Nothing said they couldn't become rich beyond their wildest dreams by ''selling'' their story; ''WesternAnimation/TheRealGhostbusters'' is the result. It would probably look more like ''The Original Real Ghostbusters'', with matching flightsuits and a Peter that looks a ''little'' more like Bill Murray at Peter's own insistence; also, Mr. Stay-Puft would be the unofficial mascot, not Slimer. Somewhere around Series 3, the Marshmallow Man starts to take a bigger role, and the show is eventually retooled to focus entirely on him. At this point, we see Movie!Ghostbusters in decline, with Ray and Winston doing kids' parties in a decrepit ECTO-1.

[[WMG: The whole show is just Peter trapped in a LotusEaterMachine.]]

Blowing up Gozer's gate and crossing the streams caused Peter Venkman to slip into a version of the world tailored around him. He has become more conventionally attractive, while Ray has become pudgier and Egon looks just plain ridiculous. (He has no opinion of Winston, but only because he barely noticed him and couldn't even remember if he had a mustache.) What's more, his ultimate hustle never ran out of work and he is greeting by cheering fans pretty much every time they finish up a job. The only thing that doesn't fit is Slimer, and he isn't supposed to - That first ghost that "slimed him" is a recurring white rabbit in this illusion world. It represents what Peter must learn and do in order to escape. He starts off wanting to blast the spud, but starts acting friendlier to him as time goes on. The illusion begins to weaken as Slimer's speech becomes more coherent, and Peter begins to sound more and more like Bill Murray.

* Egon, by and large, is charged with delivering the show's exposition, complete with SpockSpeak, making him the natural order of focus for the show. Also, the writers may have considered him the main protagonist as well, seeing as how it was Egon that would stay on as the mentor in Extreme Ghostbusters.
