“Winston’s Diary”
Tuesday, 15th November 1988
    Egon, Winston and Janine return to the Sedgewick Hotel for a paranormal society conference where Egon was invited to speak.  In a room filled with people like Egon, Winston soon began to wonder why he was even a Ghostbuster.  When Egon was asked about their toughest battle, of course Gozer sprang to mind.  And then Gozer, as Mr. Stay Puft, sprang up when one of the paranormal society members uttered an incantation to release him!  

“Janine’s Knight in Shining Armour!”
    Janine reads a book about knights and dragons just before Egon surprises her with her favorite flowers: Snapdragons.  However, snapping is just what they do as a real dragon emerges from the bouquet, snagging Janine in the process and leaving Egon to rescue his fair damsel!

“The Post Ghost!”
    The Ghostbusters are called in to investigate a mailbox haunting.  Egon, while examining it, gets pulled in by the ghost residing inside, Kal Quix Ra, who waits for a message from some unknown party.  Deducing the mailboxes are serving as a trans-dimensional gateway, Egon has an idea how to close it off.  But, with his being half stuck inside, it could prove risky for him.

“Blimey!  It’s Slimer!”
    Slimer’s ghost friend sees him getting down with his bad self and decides to join in.
