Near the beginning of Ghostbusters, there is a scene where the protagonists encounter an apparition in the New York Public Library. Ray Stantz and Egon Spengler can't decide what to do, so Peter Venkman draws them into a private conference, pulling Ray by the ear and saying,
Could you just come over here for a second, please? Right over here. Come here, Francine! Come here. What do we do?
Why does Peter call Ray "Francine"? Is he just using a generic feminine name to ridicule Ray's dainty handling of the situation, or is "Francine" a reference to something or someone specific?
