Uncle Bill was Patty Tolan's uncle in the 2016 movie.

History

Uncle Bill owned a funeral home in New York City.[1] He allowed his niece Patty to borrow one of his hearses. The hearse was sucked into the Portal in the finale of the final battle between the Ghostbusters and Rowan North. Patty informed Uncle Bill the hearse was lost on the other side. Some time later, Uncle Bill drove to the Firehouse in Tribecca and parked in the driveway. He stepped out and asked Patty where the hearse was. Patty reminded him about its disappearance. He thought she meant New Jersey. Patty tried to explain again. Abby Yates and Erin Gilbert made no eye contact and walked past them to the door. Uncle Bill explained he had four funerals that weekend and he couldn't make due with just one hearse. Patty suggested he could do two at a time. Uncle Bill exclaimed he was not stacking them like flapjacks.

Trivia

  • In the alternate extended scene "Patty's Car", Patty reveals Uncle Bill paints the roof of his hearses red so the dead can go out in style but she thinks it also has to do with him being a former pimp.[2]
  • In the alternate extended scene "Uncle Bill", it is revealed Patty told Uncle Bill she was borrowing his hearse to help somebody move.[3]
  • In Ghostbusters 101 #4, Patty realizes Winston Zeddemore looks like a younger version of her uncle.
