Case Study No. 0032: Unnamed Female Librarian (The Real Ghostbusters)

RGB - Got chickens?
It seems like the librarian is implying something...or maybe she just wants to cook dinner for Egon. We may never know.

[scene opens in the New York Public Library, as the Ghostbusters are at the front desk checking out books with the young female librarian]
LIBRARIAN: [handing Ray back his books] Next.
PETER: [confidently handing her a book, in an attempt to impress her]
LIBRAIAN: [stamps the book]
PETER: [before she can hand the book back] Betcha don't get many celebrities here. Well, maybe some actors, but I mean people who can read. As Ghostbusters, we have a scientific responsibility to--
LIBRARIAN: [slides the book back to him with a condescending look] Will that be all?
PETER: All? Are you kidding? You know how many words are in these things? Why, I'll bet I read more than anyone else in this room!
[Egon enters the scene, spilling a large stack of books onto the table]
EGON: Whoops!
PETER: [thinking quickly] Ah, the rest of my books! He'll check these out for me, I'll be in the car ... [to the other Ghostbusters] Come on, guys!
[the other two follow Peter out the door, passing a creepy looking man with his nose buried in a book]
LIBRARIAN: [dreamily looking into Egon's eyes] Anything else, Doctor Spengler?
EGON: Yes, I couldn't find ... [looking at his list] "Spirit Summonings and Conjurations," "Lochmoor's Guide to the Lower Regions," and the latest volume of "Who's Who and What's That."
LIBRARIAN: Oh, but those volumes have already been checked out ... [she points to the creepy man] By him.
CUBBY: [muttering to himself] Chickens ... Chickens ... Just wait!
EGON: [takes out his PKE Meter and checks Cubby for signs of spectral activity]
LIBRARIAN: [whispering] Is he human?
EGON: Unfortunately, yes. Well, maybe next time ... [he takes his books and leaves]
LIBRARIAN: [yelling after him] See ya next week ... [to the female patron next in line] Oh, he is so cute!
[Egon stops in front of Cubby, who is giggling to himself while reading]
EGON: A word of caution, from one expert in the paranormal to a ... well, whatever. Be careful with those books. In the wrong hands, they could be dangerous.
CUBBY: Not dangerous to me ... but chickens? [laughs] Anything with feathers, look out!
[he runs off]
EGON: [to himself] Definitely evolved from the shallow end of the gene pool.


[the Ghostbusters are driving through the city]
EGON: All the chickens in the world have vanished.
PETER: You've been up all night doing equations again, haven't you? You know how that effects you ...
RAY: But if you're right, Egon, why are we heading into town instead of the country?
EGON: Just playing a hunch ...
[cut to Egon speaking with the librarian at the library]
EGON: When he took the books on spirits and summonings, he mentioned chickens. If you could possibly tell me where he lives ...
LIBRARIAN: Well, since it's you ... [starts typing on her computer]
EGON: [moves in closer] I beg you pardon, but what is that perfume you're wearing?
L: "Essence of Fungus," you like it?
EGON: Actually, it's very ... uh, never mind.
LIBRARIAN: [hands him a piece of paper] I hope this address helps.
EGON: I'm sure it will. Thank you.
LIBRARIAN: [hands him another piece of paper] Uh, this is my address ... just in case.
EGON: Do you have chickens?
LIBRARIAN: I could get some ... [winks]
[the Ghostbusters walk towards the exit]
PETER: [to Egon] That's disgusting.
