10 Best Scenes From Ghostbusters

If you know me, you know how much I love Ghostbusters. It's my favorite movie. If it's on, I'm watching it. If it's not on, I'm thinking about it or quoting it or wearing my shirt or smiling at my key chain. My Twitter bio has been "Bustin' makes me feel good" for years and years. I say "Back off man, I'm a scientist," to strangers in ATM lines. I was asked last week to name the best movie I've ever seen. My response? I feel like if I say anything but Ghostbusters, I'll get sad right after so - Ghostbusters. 

Monday when I heard that Harold Ramis had passed away, it felt like I'd lost a mentor or something which is dumb because I don't write films and I've never met the man. But, his writing just perfectly struck my funny bone in such a good way. I know this is not a unique viewpoint. We all loved him. Which makes his passing all the more sad. He affected us. He changed our worlds. I mean, the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man came out of his brain. So, here's a list of what I think are the Best Scenes From Ghostbusters. Here we go, in no particular order:

1) Yes, It's True, This Man Has No Dick
"Dogs and cats living together; mass hysteria!" 

2) Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man
"Nobody steps on a church in my town!"

3) Big Twinkie
"Tell him about the Twinkie."

4) I Want You Inside Me
"Sounds like you got at least two people in there already, might be a little crowded."

5) We Came We Saw, We Kicked It's Ass
"That wasn't such a chore now, was it?"

6) Are You The Gatekeeper?
"What an asshole."

7) Cockroach on 12
"What are you supposed to be some kind of a cosmonaut?"

8) Print Is Dead
"I collect spores, molds and fungus."

9) He Slimed Me
"I feel so funky."

10) Are You A God?
"Ray, if someone asks you if you're a god, you say YES!!"

I have to stop at ten, you guys. I could do this all day! I should've just posted the whole movie. Anyway, hope this was as fun for you as it was for me.

Have a Twinkie for Egon.
