(SCENE: The Ghostbusters are facing Gozer. He/She/It speaks to them in a voice that can be heard throughout Metropolitan New York and parts of New Jersey).
GOZER: SUBCREATURES! GOZER THE GOZERIAN, GOZER THE DESTRUCTOR, VOLGUUS ZILDROHAR, THE TRAVELLER HAS COME. CHOOSE AND PERISH.
WINSTON: What’s he talking about? Choose what?
STANTZ: What do you mean “choose?” We don’t understand.
SPENGLER: I think he’s saying that since we’re about to be sacrificed anyway, we get to choose the form we want him to take.
STANTZ: You mean if I stand here and concentrate on the image of Roberto Clemente, Gozer will appear as Roberto Clemente and wipe us out?
SPENGLER: That appears to be the case.
VENKMAN: Don’t think of anything yet. Clear your minds. We only get one crack at this.
GOZER: The choice is made. The Travellers have come.
VENKMAN: We didn’t choose anything! I didn’t think of an image, did you?
STANTZ: I couldn’t help it! It just popped in there! Look!
(Looking south past Columbus Circle, the Ghostbusters see part of something big and
nerdy moving between the buildings accompanied by thunderous footsteps).
VENKMAN: What is it? Ray, what did you think of?
(Two massive shapes pass behind some buildings, offering a glimpse of what appears to be a giant t-shirt with some kind of retro/ironic design on the front).
STANTZ: It can’t be! It can’t be!
(The thundering footsteps continue to plod as the things start to emerge from behind the buildings. Now we can see a giant hand holding a cheap microphone, another hand holding an enormous can of beer).
STANTZ: I tried to think of the most harmless thing… something that is completely pointless… something that most people have never heard of…
(At that moment a deafening laughter emerges from the monsters mouths, they seem to find their own jokes very amusing. No one else is laughing).
STANZ: It’s… It’s… It’s the 101 Video Games That Made My Life Slightly Better Podcast!
(Winston, Venkman and Spengler gape).
