The year after a routine bust, Egon Spengler and Ray Stantz were accosted by an irate man at Central Avenue and Bleecker Street while they took P.K.E. readings. He didn't find it right that they trapped his cousin Little Steve. Egon replied it didn't make much of a difference to them unless it was a identity specific haunting. The man took offense and asked Egon if he was being disrespectful. Egon found that to be a waste of time. The man grabbed Egon by the tie and was about to punch him but Special Agent Melanie Ortiz intervened and placed him in an arm lock. Ortiz assured the man the Ghostbusters didn't personally go after every single ghost and leave the quiet ones alone. Egon interjected unless the ghost manifested in a way to unnerve or pester a client. The man got even angrier at the insinuation. Ortiz showed her badge and advised him to calm down or he would be arrested for assault. She added after he was booked, he could get everything all on record. The man declined and took the first choice.
