That's the joke -- while the new recruit and the two guys who are the heart of the science of the operation are completely gunked up, the easygoing, free-wheeling character is the one who escapes and is able to say, "I'm fine." It's a gag.
That's how I saw it, the "cool" guy gets away with it using the Fonz Factor. The same way Blade never gets any blood on him.

Re: Ghostbusters - Why Isn't Murray Covered in Marshmallow?

He was also the one who got slimed early on while the others were relatively untouched. It was payback time

From a production level though, I always thought they needed Murray relatively clean for the big romantic kiss with Dana at the end. That or Murray (who's known to be pretty demanding) argued not to be covered in gunk.

^^^THIS

That kiss seemed like the main reason.

I also recall hearing Ramis and Reitman explain that Murray didn't want to be covered in the foam but forget their reason why now.

Which always struck me as odd, because Murray was obviously okay being covered with slime earlier in the film. It seems like foam would be less messy.
