Big Time Terror is the 14th episode of Big Time Rush. It aired May 8, 2010.


After seeing a moving table, or a "ghost table" Carlos thinks there is a ghost at The Palm Woods, and the other guys try to convince him that there is not. Gustavo stays with the boys for a night because he flooded his mansion. In the morning, Carlos and Logan go ghost hunting with Mr. Bitters, Carlos to prove that there is a ghost, Logan to disprove Carlos, and Mr. Bitters to make the ghost leave The Palm Woods. They spend all of their time in the lobby, while Gustavo hangs with James and Kendall at the pool. Gustavo is being a horrid house guest, he snores, yells in his sleep, and is just being obnoxious, so James and Kendall try to get him to leave. As it happens, Gustavo's mansion won't be un-flooded for five more days. Gustavo moves all of his own things into the boys' apartment. Kelly tells James and Kendall that Gustavo's mansion has been un-flooded for days. The boys have to get him back to the mansion before he has too much fun. Kendall, James, Carlos and Logan realize that none of them are getting anything accomplished because they are not working together. The boys chase the ghost with ecto-vacuum cleaners. Instead of sucking up the ghost, they suck the ghost costume off the new girl at the Palm Woods, Stephanie King. The boys agree not to tell on her as long as they help scare Gustavo back to his mansion. After they do, the boys perform a song called Shot in the Dark.

In the end, everybody is back to normal sitting by the pool, when they see another moving table. Stephanie claims that it's not her, and everyone but her runs away. Katie pops up from a bush and says to Stephanie that she can't believe how much fun she could have with fishing line, and Stephanie told her so.



Katie: [yelling at the boys] What is going on? It's 3:30 in the morning!
Mrs. Knight: Katie, let me handle this. [louder] WHAT IS GOING ON, IT'S 3:30 IN THE MORNING!!!

Kendall: I cannot believe we can't get rid of Gustavo.
Logan: Yeah, well, I can't believe we can't get rid of a ghost.
Kendall and James: You believe in ghosts?
Logan: I believe in the doo-doos in my pants. (Kendall and James make disgusted faces)
Bitters: [running by yelling] GHOOOST!!!

James: We haven't failed this bad since we lost to Duluth East in hockey eight-one.
Carlos: Right, that was the game Kendall and I got ejected from for unsportsmanlike mooning.
Kendall: Wait a minute, that's it!
James: We should moon Gustavo and the ghost?
Kendall: No, we beat Duluth East in the finals later because we were all back on the ice--together.
Carlos, James and Logan: As a team.
Carlos: Right! We're gonna team moon them!
Kendall: Close we're gonna team up

Bitters: We have to get rid of that ghost.
Carlos: Don't worry, we'll catch it (pulls out green fishing net) tonight.
Logan: With a fishing net?
Carlos: An ecto net.
Logan: Fishing net.
Carlos: Ecto net!
Logan: It's a fishing net.
Carlos: Ec-to net!
Logan: Fishing net.
Carlos: ECTO NET!

Gustavo: Well James, I am on the California Hotel No Welcome List. Along with Russel Crowe, all the members of Areosmith, And the Orginial Host of Blue's Clues. The 90's were really wild times.
