“He slimed me.”

Ghost Busters (1984), written by Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis

The Daily Dialogue theme for the week is less with more suggested by hobbs001.

Trivia: According to Ivan Reitman and Harold Ramis in the DVD Commentary, in Dan Aykroyd’s original rough draft of the movie, the story was going to take place in the future and that there would be teams of Ghostbusters like there are paramedics and firefighters (thus explaining basing the Ghostbusters HQ in a firehouse). According to Reitman, such a film would cost “at least $300 million in 1984 dollars”. So Harold Ramis was brought in to rewrite the script and bring it into modern times.
