Metropolitan Hospital


In the waiting room of the Metropolitan Hospital, the Head Nurse summoned Janine but mispronounced her last name. Janine corrected her but she didn't care. Janine told Slimer to wait, her check up shouldn't take too long. Slimer flipped through an issue of Ghost Stories and shrieked at every turn. The nurse repeatedly told him to be quiet. Slimer threw down the magazine and cracked his knuckles. The nurse told him to be quiet again. Professor Dweeb pulled up to the hospital when a new detection device, the Ghost Detector. As they entered the hospital, Slimer wandered off in search of food. Dweeb's device turned into a clamp with sharp teeth and grabbed the chair Slimer sat in. Not pleased with the noise, the nurse tossed Dweeb back into his van.

As Slimer dined on a dish, a patient found Slimer and was reminded of how bad hospital food was getting. He tossed the dish and Slimer out of his room. After he blew a razz berry at the patient, Slimer found himself in the maternity ward. He soothed the crying babies with a lullaby. Meanwhile, Dweeb sneaked into the hospital disguised as a doctor. The Head Nurse arrived for feeding time, prompting Slimer to disguise himself as a baby. When the nurse's back was turned, Slimer took a bunch of bottles and belched. The nurse chalked it up to working too much and left. As Slimer turned a corner, he bumped into Dweeb. Dweeb pretended to give him a physical examination. Dweeb readied a Ghost Trap from Elizabeth but it snapped on his hand instead. Dweeb ran off into a room and screamed in agony. He sent out his remote controlled food cart to trap Slimer once and for all. Before Slimer could check it out, the Head Nurse found it. Mistaking the nurse for Slimer, Dweeb triggered the trap. The cart returned to Dweeb and he soon realized his big mistake. The nurse stomped on the remote control and the cart roared into action. It carried Dweeb and Elizabeth off into a laundry chute. Slimer returned to the waiting room just in time and left the hospital with Janine. Professor Dweeb declared science would ultimately prevail but Elizabeth bit his left hand.


Head Nurse: Yo, the doctor will see you now Miss Melnutz.

Janine: That's Melnitz.
Head Nurse: Yeah, whatever.
Janine: Thank you.
