Ooba Tooba: 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.

I'll never 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."

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.

(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.

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.

#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.
