Top 5 Movie Scientists of All Time

Peter Venkman

Peter Venkman Ghost Busters Bill Murray


While Peter Venkman (Bill Murray), is not the only scientist in 1984’s Ghost Busters, he for sure had all the great one liners.

While responding to Egon Spengler (Harold Remus) when his character asks for the group to ‘cross the streams’

You’re gonna endanger our client — the nice lady, who paid us in advance before she became a dog.

Who can forget when investigating Dana Barrett’s (Sigourney Weaver) apartment, he played the higher notes on the piano over and over again and then said:

They hate this.

Or when questioning Raymond Stantz (Dan Akroyd) the validity of his belief in a possible unexplained phenomena at the New York City Library

You’re right, no human being would stack books like this

Either way nothing tops Venkman pationalty explaining the depth of the situation to the New York City mayor:

Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together… mass hysteria!

These movie scientists mentioned above have been cinema’s all-time favorites and are still admired and talked about in today’s generation. Their characters have also made many viewers fall in love with science and study it further.
