The Nutcracker[1] was a device developed by Jillian Holtzmann in the 2016 movie.


After the events of the Ghost Invasion and defeat of Rowan North, the Ghostbusters settled into their new headquarters at a firehouse. One of the new gadgets Holtzmann developed was a device she dubbed the "Nutcracker". Erin Gilbert assumed she meant for crushing ghosts before Holtzmann corrected her and said it was for walnuts. Erin then replied with "Smart".
