Ghostbusters II reference

In front of the water fountain in the firehouse is a window looking back into storage. You can see the “Ghostbusters II” sign and some doors from Ecto 1A.

When you are in the firehouse just before returning to the closed-up Sedgewick, play through the phone messages. You will hear a woman asking for the number to Ray’s Occult bookstore.

Indiana Jones reference

One of the messages on the answering machine is from a Professor Jones who is trying to locate the Vigo painting, stating that it belongs in a museum.

Madame de Pompadour reference

The Real Ghostbusters reference

In the basement, on the far work station there is a PKE meter modeled after the one from The Real Ghostbusters .
