One Christmas season, Winston Zeddemore and Tiyah Clarke were finishing shopping for the holiday before going to Connecticut to visit Tiyah's parents. They crossed the street from the Saks Fifth building to Marley's Books at 620 5th Avenue where a Christmas display was set up outside. Winston surprised Tiyah and proposed to her.

Three months after the finale of the Tiamat incident, the Ghostbusters were called to the Saks Fifth building. They spent three hours battling the Subway Ghost. After trapping it, Winston noticed Tiyah was sitting outside the Pequod's near Saks Fifth. Peter Venkman decided to let the ghost go to set up a "chance encounter" between Winston and Tiyah. Soon after, Slimer was seen flying down Saks Fifth Avenue.
