It's Egon's birthday and he gets the best surprise ever, The Real Ghostbusters return for a surprise visit with Egon to celebrate his 40 years. A call comes in that evening, and Venkman answers ahead of the new team. Under a brief initial protest from Egon in favor of the EGB team, the originals decide to grab their old gear and head out to relive the "Glory Days" of ghostbusting, inadvertently taking the reins from the new team to battle a few specters in New York.
However, there's a little friction between the new team and the old team, when the RGB's seem to take over the business again like nothing has changed. As they go out on their first case in years, the EGB's take some time off. Janine is worried about the EGB's and there failing self esteem, and she corners Egon about it. Meanwhile, a Ghost "Clone" is attacking a nearby bridge, chewing on the steal cables. With each trapping the Ghost multiplies by two! But the EGB's come to save the day with a change of heart only to trap the 4 cloning ghosts and make 8. Can they work together and stop these ghosts from tearing the city apart?
