The ever-elusive silver fox known to mortals as Bill Murray often pops up at functions of all sorts, imparting wisdom on townsfolk or just straight up boosting the environment’s overall ambiance.
This past weekend was no different as OG Zissou bestowed a bachelor party with his presence and some knowledge to boot. Dropping gems like, “You know how they say funerals are not for the dead but for the living?” Only to close with, “Bachelor parties are not for the groom, they’re for the uncommitted.”
As profound as those quips are, the pièce de resistance came when Murray uttered this paradigm shifting concept:
“If you have someone that you think is The One, don’t just sort of think in your ordinary mind, ‘OK, let’s pick a date. Let’s plan this and make a party and get married. Take that person and travel around the world. Buy a plane ticket for the two of you to travel all around the world … and go to places that are hard to go to and hard to get out of. And if when you come back to JFK, when you land in JFK, and you’re still in love with that person — get married at the airport.”
Wise words indeed.
