Bill Murray as Dr. Peter Venkman had many lines worth remembering.

It’s not a “Ghostbusters” weekend without a shout-out to the 1984 original — and, especially, the great Dr. Peter Venkman, played with wry perfection by Bill Murray. Here, a few classic Venkman quotes:

“Why worry? Each of us is wearing an unlicensed nuclear accelerator on his back.”

“Human sacrifice! Dogs and cats living together! Mass hysteria!”

“Generally, you don’t see that kind of behavior in a major appliance.”

(Upon viewing the giant Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man, striding down a Manhattan street): “There’s something you don’t see every day.”

“Let’s show this prehistoric bitch how we do things downtown.”

“Back off, man. I’m a scientist.”
