The Businessman in Cab[1] is businessman who goes into a taxi driven by the Zombie Taxi Driver.

History

Shortly after Walter Peck had the Containment Unit shut down, the Businessman caught a taxi cab on Madison Avenue. The Businessman was unaware the driver was not alive and asked to be taken to the Columbia Building on 57th Street noting he was in a hurry. The driver complied and drove at breakneck speed then made a U-turn, causing other cars to swerve. It is unknown if the taxi reached its destination, and how the Businessman reacted when he finally noticed what was the driver.

Trivia

  • In the August 5, 1983 draft, on page 103, the Businessman leaves the Exxon Building and asks to go to the Gulf and Western Building.[2] The gag is followed up on page 105. The Businessman is oblivious to the mayhem and reads his Wall Street Journal.[3]
  • In Ghostbusters: The Supernatural Spectacular, the Businessman in Cab was named Roger Hubbard.[4]
