Imagine this scenario. It’s the night before your wedding. Your best friends are waiting until you hot cop stripper shows up or you’re drinking to excess because, hello, you are about to lose your “freedom.” Actually, this might be the second best night of your life because it’s all about you, it’s all about love, and it’s all about every vice known to man.
And then Bill Murray walks in. And it gets so much better.
The comedian/actor/all-around awesome, weird dude crashed the Charleston-based bachelor party of this dude named EJ. They were having dinner at a steakhouse, like men are wont to do, and Murray walks in. After being asked if he’ll talk to the dudes or if he wants a drink, Murray says “No thanks,” but walks back two minutes later and gives an epic speech.
Here’s a portion of it:
“Listen here, I’m gonna give you all advice, cause it’s too late for this one… here’s what I recommend to you. If you have someone that you think is The One, don’t just sort of think in your ordinary mind, ‘Okay 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 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.”
