- Bill Murray and Sigourney Weaver rehearsed the scene with Ivan Reitman the day before shooting. They restructured the scene and developed new ideas. As a result, the dialogue changed from what was in the final shooting script.
- After Peter was shoved out by Dana, Peter was scripted to say "What a woman," leaving Louis feeling crestfallen. It was filmed but cut during editing.
- Newly recovered dailies from a Kansas mine revealed some of the alternate takes and discarded material.
- Takes of Peter playing the piano.
- A longer take of Peter and Dana walking to the kitchen then Peter playing pretend with utensils.
- Dana's game show host line from the first movie is referenced in Peter's biography on a Dramatis Personae Page in Ghostbusters Annual 2017.
- On page 7 of Ghostbusters Crossing Over Issue #2, Peter's outfit is based on the one he wore to his initial investigation in Chapter 10: Checking Out Dana.

Paragraph reads: "Deviating considerably from the written text -- at least in terms of dialogue -- is the scene in which Venkman accompanies Dana to her apartment to investigate her report of supernatural disturbances. Bill Murray and Sigourney Weaver rehearsed the sequence with Ivan Reitman the day before shooting, restructuring their interaction and developing numerous ideas that eventually found their way onto the screen."

Paragraph reads: "As shot, Louis runs out into the hallway -- suggesting he has heard Dana's door close and is 'coincidentally' trying to intercept her. Implying a major conquest, Venkman says, "What a woman." and then exits -- leaving Louis crestfallen and, once again, locked out of his apartment. During editing, the Venkman line was cut."
