The staff of Tai Hong Lau Restaurant called the Ghostbusters after Chi-You appeared outside and went on a rampage. The Turtles battled his thralls but had difficulty in hitting them in the chest with their Arm Mounted Proton Packs. The ghost of Phyllis Hasskamp, a former food critic at the Times, manifested in the Tai Hong Lau Restaurant after some remodeling was completed and the menu was changed. [1] [2] Apparently, no one was buying Greek Fusion anymore. [3] Hasskamp overturned tables and threw food everywhere. The Ghostbusters were called in.

Peter Venkman, Winston Zeddemore, and Kylie Griffin arrived. They and the owner hid behind some propped up tables while she threw several cooked ducks. The owner couldn't believe it was Hasskamp since in life she was kind to the restaurant. She proclaimed "No stars!" repeatedly. A duck hit the owner and he fell flat on his back. Peter opened fire but Hasskamp went through the floor and the proton stream nailed a table. The owner asked him to stop damaging his restaurant but Peter insisted it wasn't his fault she moved. Winston ushered him away from Peter. Kylie checked her P.K.E. Meter and confirmed Hasskamp was still around. Peter resigned himself to be the one to draw her out. He ate a spring roll off someone's plate and pretended it was good then declared he was going to recommend Tai Hong Lau to everyone and since he was a celebrity, they would listen to him. Hasskamp took the bait and became agitated. She countered it was uninspired, almost inedible, and not even fit for a dog. Winston used both his Proton Pistols at once and wrangled her but Hasskamp began to transmogrify and threaten to burn the place down. Kylie threw out a Trap and captured it. Hasskamp begged them to just eat somewhere better. Peter spit the food out and admitted she was right about the food.
