3 Bridges in First Draft

I'm not sure this is valid in the actual episode but I noticed in the first draft (that can be found on Volume 2 Disc 5 of the Real Ghostbusters Complete Collection), there are three bridges that appear in the episode. The first one was the Manhattan Bridge (page 10) where Bud drove to when he was attacked. The second one was the Brooklyn Bridge (page 19) when Peter was attacked. Lastly, the Queensboro Bridge was used to trap the Headless Horseman at the end (page 21, 27, 31-32, 37-39). Naturally a closer look is order, but a second, third, fourth, etc. opinion would be appreciated. Mrmichaelt (talk) 10:25, May 11, 2014 (UTC)

I remembered reading that a year or two back. It looked like a lot of trouble to address back then, so I sort of had to skip that one. Notes about bridges:
Anyways, also there are a lot of locations noted in this script during the chase scenes.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  11:56, May 11, 2014 (UTC)
I think they should be noted atleast.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  12:02, May 11, 2014 (UTC)
Yeah, I definitely want to look at Google Maps or something and see if it makes sense. Like Bud driving from this, I forget off hand, a penthouse by Central Park (?) to the Manhattan Bridge or Peter driving from the Firehouse to the Brooklyn Bridge, and look through the episode again, take grabs, and see if those really are distinguishable design wise, and do something in the trivia like in the first draft...bullet point bullet point. Any help is appreciated. Mrmichaelt (talk) 12:16, May 11, 2014 (UTC)
honestly, I don't think most scenes in this episode were researched by the art department. The scenes with Bud and Peter being chased don't look mach like anything noted in the script. The locations getting to bridges is pretty much only trivia.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  12:20, May 11, 2014 (UTC)
It probably depended on the team that worked on an episode. Some seem to have did research, some don't. But yes, the first draft looks to have some good trivia and worth a second look. I either didn't notice or forgot Bud and Kate got married at the end of it. Mrmichaelt (talk) 12:33, May 11, 2014 (UTC)
It indeed would have been a weird ending, not that seeing the four dressed up at a high class party isn't odd. 12:40, May 11, 2014 (UTC)
