John:

...It's fine.

Ted:

How is this fine, John?

John:

Didn't you hear what the head ghoul said, Ted?
It can only create something based on our thoughts.
So all we have to do is keep our heads empty.
Easiest thing in the world.
<distant thudding footsteps>

Ted:

Easiest thing for you, maybe. How are we going to keep free of thought?

John:

Not ALL thought, Ted. Just thoughts of living things.
Think of mountains streams...

Harold:

...Uh, guys...

John:

...a bowl of oatmeal, banana peels...
<thudding footsteps a little closer>

Ted:

We need to get off this roof now.

John:

We need-

Harold:

GUYS! It's too late. I thought of something.

John:

You WHAT?

Ted:

What did you think of, Harold?

Harold:

I couldn't help it! I knew I was going to think of something...
...so I thought of the cuddliest, fluffiest, cutest thing I know...
...something that could never, ever hurt us.

John:

What did you think of, Harold?

Harold:

Sporfo the Raccoon.
<thudding footsteps directly nearby, raccoon-y screams as buildings topple over>

With their New York ghoul hunting business shut down after a subway expedition goes wrong, Ted, John and Harold must prove that ghouls exist - and that the Ghoul Stoppers are the only ones who can stop them before they take over the city. 1984. PG-13 for horror elements, crude comedy.
