After being approached by strangers, Bill Murray attended a bachelor party to give an inspiring speech to the attendees.
On Memorial Day weekend a group of men were lucky to stumble upon Bill Murray during a bachelor party. The group of men from Boston College had gathered at a steakhouse in Charleston, S.C. to celebrate their friend’s upcoming wedding. One of the men went downstairs, only to discover the legendary Bill Murray dining at the steakhouse. He explained the story to Deadspin.
While downstairs, a member of the party asked Murray if he would come and say something to the groom, but he was turned down with a polite “no thanks” from Murray, reports E! Online .
However, moments later Murray came upstairs and gave sage advice to all present on the topic of love and marriage. Murray summed up the best path to marriage in the most romantic, profound, and simple speech that only he could deliver so perfectly.
The highlight of his speech was, "If you have someone you think is the one, don’t just sort of think … let’s make a date, let’s plan this and make a party and get married. Take that person and travel around the world. Buy a ticket for the two of you to travel all around the world to places that are hard to get to and hard to get out of. And if when you come back to JFK, when you land in JFK … you’re still in love with that person? Get married at the airport.”
Luckily someone recorded the entire encounter, see the full video below.
