Scene 20

  • Venkman shows up to the apartment building with flowers.
  • Outside, police investigate what they think was a cougar attack at the party.
  • Peter knocks on Dana's apartment door; when she answers she looks seriously different.
  • She's wearing a slinky red thing and seems spaced out.
  • In a seductive voice, she asks Venkman if he's the Keymaster and tells him that she is Zuul, the Gatekeeper.
  • Peter asks Dana/Zuul what she's up to this evening, and she says she's preparing for the coming of Gozer, the Destructor.
  • After that, she tries to have sex with Venkman, and he (somewhat miraculously) refuses, saying he tries not to have sex with possessed people.
  • Peter tries to get Zuul to let him talk to Dana, but Zuul instead decides to float in the air and growl.
