    Can’t bring back Murray … he was shot on Zombieland.
    (How would the Ghostbusters deal with zombies, anyway?

    Don’t fall for that ectoplasm. It could slide on for an eternity. And is that a ghost – or a pookah? No, I Dowd it. Shouldn’t mix metaphors into that Stewart.

    At least he’s not doing it on the public’s dime.

    Is that supposed to be a séance? It looks like army men with WWII walkie-talkies. The dialog conforms pretty closely to what I have read about séances.

    If the stories and characters are good they don’t need any one character. I just loved “Extreme Ghost Busters.”

    Wow…I guess it’s more obscure than I thought….


    And I guess I’m old…
    cos this joke was more familiar to me than the usual Brevity takes on modern sci fi…


    And it’s straight-up wordplay!


    The speech is no seance whatsoever, and has nothing to do with ghostsl!
    It’s verbatim, from Jimmy Stewart’s famous (or so I thought) filibuster monologue in “Mr. Smith Goes to Washington”…


    With a ghost substituted for freshman senator Jefferson Smith (Stewart) , it becomes a Ghost Filibuster.
    Who ya gonna call?
    Bill Murray I guess.


    (Late last night, I didn’t notice the ghost was female….
    probably the librarian..
    In any case, she’s reading the speech to children at the library… though the film wasn’t based on a book.

    But it’s considered inspirational so maybe it’s used that way.)


    But anyway… I was feeling guilty for giving it away…
    LOL.
