In honor of its 30th anniversary "Ghostbusters" gets the re-release treatment from Sony Pictures this Friday.

Box Office Insider humbly presents our list of the 30 Best "Ghostbusters" Quotes.

In 1984 director Ivan Reitman put together a dream cast for what appeared on paper to be a rather silly and far-too-scientific comedy (the film's synopsis included the word "parapsychologists") called "Ghostbusters".  Bill Murray was fresh off the success of "Stripes" and "Caddyshack", Dan Aykroyd had staked a post-SNL claim for himself with "The Blues Brothers", the late, great Harold Ramis wrote and co-starred with Murray in "Meatballs", "Caddyshack" and "Stripes" and the film's supporting cast included Ernie Hudson, Sigourney Weaver, Annie Potts and The Keymaster himself, Rick Moranis.  What resulted from this melting pot was one of the funniest comedies in film history, a film that amassed a staggering $238 million in domestic box office receipts, which translates to an almost incomprehensible $462 million in 2014 dollars.

In honor of the film's 30th anniversary, Sony is releasing the movie in select theatres this week and Box Office Insider celebrates the re-release with this look at the Top 30 "Ghostbusters" movie quotes....
