Early in the year, Dana breaks up with Venkman--she's tired of his inability to commit to her. Venkman would try to cover for the deep pain of the loss by chasing many of the women the Ghostbusters encounter (Doris Tibbs, Alice Derleth, Anne Lawson, Anne Johnson, ect...)

Dana married fellow musician Andre Wallance, a violinist she'd seen off and on even before meeting Venkman

March 18. Oscar Wallance is born early in the year. Shortly afterward, Andre recieves a lucrative offer from an orchestra in Europe--this leads to him and Dana divorcing.

Late in the year, Ghostbusters Inc. reactivates. Venkman and Dana are reunited as Oscar is menaced by Vigo the Carpathian.
