80's Movies: 1984 - Ghostbusters - The Ballroom Scene

There are so many classic moments in this Ghostbusters scene that I can't even count them. I could watch this 1000 more times and not get tired of it.

Things to watch out for: 

-Ray's cool night vision goggles.  Those would look cool even in today's movies.
-Sedgewick Hotel (which is actually the Millenium Biltmore Hotel in LA)

Great lines from the scene:

-"Don't cross the streams.  It would be bad."
-"Total protonic reversal."
-"Whoooa ho ho, nice shooting Tex"
-"Give me some room to put the trap down"
-"The flowers are still standing"
-"Maybe now you'll never slime a guy with a positron collider"
-"Venkman, shorten your stream, I don't want my face burned off"
-"I looked at the trap Ray"
-"That wasn't such a chore now was it?"

Looking back, the acting and the script were what really made this movie so great.

The real hotel ballroom as it is today:
