Bill Murray was arrested in 1971 at O'Hare airport with nine pounds of marijuana. It appears Belushi had instructed, "only nine pounds this weekend, Bill. I'm trying to cut back."

#9:  his niece was in my Homer / Iliad class in college.


/no, really
//same surname, she wrote for the school paper
///professor pointed it out one day in class.  "balh blah blah, but that's like 'ghostbusters'." (or maybe he said caddyshack).  and then he's like, "for those that dont' get my joke, Bill Murray is her uncle."  and she does that embarassed, roll your eyes, awkward smile, "was that necessary?" kind of body language but yeah, there was a resemblance.

We were eating at Flippers in San Francisco a few years back when Murray walks in with Dana Carvey & noticed we recognized them Murray walks over picks up my friends burger takes a bite and with his mouth full says nobody is ever going to believe you then walks back to his table.

(Audio enhancement has since indicated that the line is http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5MV7Sym8bIQ&feature=player_embedded">"I have to be leaving, but I won't let that come between us, OK?")

That's incredibly lame.  I want to see all the outtakes where he leans in and whispers something filthy that makes her crack up.

8. The deaf assistant
During the production of  Groundhog Day, Murray was going through his first divorce, even crankier than usual, and prone to disappearing for hours at a time. To ease 'communication' between the star, director Harold Ramis and the studio, Murray was asked to hire a personal assistant. His solution was to employ an assistant who was profoundly deaf and spoke only in sign language, which nobody else on set - including Murray - could speak. As Ramis told  : "Bill said, 'Don't worry, I'm going to learn sign language.'

Ok, that's funny, but I hope the deaf guy was in on the joke from the beginning.

Bill Murray once traveled back in time to give a king in North Korea a unicorn to ride as his steed.  Just before jumping on his time machine to return to the present, Bill Murray turned back to the king and whispered, "No one will ever believe you."

That story about assholes in Brooklyn is further proof that we must nuke Brooklyn from orbit. What kind of mindset do you have to have to think, "you know what would be a good idea? Telling Bill Murray, who was nice enough to come to this party, about everything wrong he's doing with his life."

He told me once, after two shots of Jack, "son, you are probably the funniest person I've ever met. Just make sure that when you're done using her mouth as a urinal...flush by pulling her ears like a wishbone.".

the stories with Murray and HST gallivanting around Aspen in drunken, drugged haze are the best.
/Met Mr Murray once at the Glendale, CA car show in early '03. Nice guy, very personable.

It's funny because Bill Murray raped me in a dirty truck stop men's room and said the very same thing.

Well, the Army's Human Resource Center of Excellence at Fort Knox may be memorialized for a general killed on 9-11, but the "unofficial" name is the "William James Murray" building.

Yes the site is where "Stripes" was filmed.

When he was in Newport shooting Moonrise Kingdom, he went out a lot and bought people drinks. He'd follow it by saying "You can tell people Bill Murray bought you a drink, but they'll never believe you."

Guy really knows how to enjoy life.

Also met Mr Murray at a car show. Gas city Indiana '07. A rodder was having trouble getting his '68 Charger started. Murray popped the hood, fiddled around a bit, and told the guy to start it. It fired right up, and the guy got out to see what Bill did. Mr Murray just pointed to the carburetor and said ""there's your problem, buddy, you didn't have one of these." In the spot he was pointing to was the bowtie Mr Murray removed from his own neck. Chevy guy, Bill.

He played at a golf course my buddy used to work for in South Jersey back in 2006. Posed for a picture then hopped on a golf cart to continue his game. As a fan of Caddyshack, it was like the holy grail just randomly seeing him there and being able to take a photo.

Just when I think I'm getting sick of Murray's 'enigma' I read something like this.

Sorta like Springsteen when he would go record shopping in Madison before a concert. This was before he believed his own PR.

Still marvel at Dylan getting talked to by the police a few years back for walking around a neighborhood the afternoon before a show; an older woman thought he looked suspecious(sp) and called the cops.
Dylan didn't have any ID and the (young) cops didn't recognize him so they drove him back to concert hall where someone vouched for him.
