If they bust him, he shall become more powerful than they could possibly imagine.

Re: could the ghost busters bust obi wan's ghost?

He was always able to come and go as he pleased. I'm not sure why, but that seemed to be an unknown trick by most of the ghosts in the Ghostbuster's universe. So unless the Ghostbusters set up some kind of ambush with a hidden trap, I doubt they could. They'd certainly never wrangle him in with their proton packs.

As for talking them out of it? Are you mad? Venkman would talk circles around such a fuddy duddy "dick."

They would have a helluva better chance than the Ghost Hunters. That's for sure.

Interesting sideline to this question- could ghost obi-wan force choke a ghostbuster? Could he use a jedi mind trick?

The mind boggles.

Does Obi-wan even count as a "proper" ghost (for busting purposes) since he didn't really die but rather physically merged with the Force?

He's a Force Ghost. I guess Force Ghostbusters could bust him.

Maybe if they sprayed him down with mood slime first?

"Well, let's say this Twinkie represents the normal amount of Midichlorians in a Jedi. Based on this morning's sample, Anakin would be a Twinkie... thirty-five feet long, weighing approximately six hundred pounds."

"Personally, I liked the Empire. They gave us money and facilities, we didn't have to produce anything! You've never been out of The Academy! You don't know what it's like out there! I've *worked* with the Rebels. They expect *results*"

I think Obi Wan would find a way to evade them personally. The ghostbuster's enemies aren't that intelligent most of the time.

"Doctor... Venkman. The purpose of The Force is to serve mankind. You seem to regard The Force as some kind of dodge... or hustle. Your theories are the worst kind of popular tripe, your lightsaber methods are sloppy, and your telekinesis is highly questionable! You are a poor Jedi, Dr. Venkman!"
