We’d like to thank Pam Victor for sharing this story.
When I was just out of college, sometime around 1988, I worked as a PA in television production. I was sent to the Brill Building – where Broadway Video was (maybe still is?) – to drop off a tape with our director.
Bill Murray got on the elevator with me. He was talking to his colleagues but being really goofy and kept looking over to see if I was laughing. It seemed like he was flirty with me, but maybe that was just in my 21 year old head. I was a HUUUUUUUGE Bill Murray fan, but determined to be cool about it, so I didn’t respond and just kept looking ahead (like a good New Yorker).
I hope he couldn’t hear me scream in excitement after he got off at his floor.
We’d like to thank Ricky for the following story.
I met Bill Murray only once in a peculiar, chance meeting.
Although I rarely go downtown in Toronto, as it’s just too busy and hard to find a parking space, one day in 2002 I went to see a visiting friend who was staying at one of the big hotels (I think it was the Sheridan).
Going into the lobby, there was quite a few people milling about and I had no idea why. It turned out that it had something to do with the Toronto Film Festival. Many there were well-dressed and wearing tuxedos, while I had on shorts and a t-shirt. Continue reading
We would like to thank Jared for sharing the following story.
It was Christmas Eve, I think of 2007, and I was at the Palisades Mall in New York with my girlfriend at the time to do some last minute Christmas shopping. We were trying to remember which floor Barnes & Noble was on as we stepped into the elevator.
“Do you remember where Barnes & Noble is?” she asked.
“I don’t know, I think it was on the 3rd floor maybe?” I responded.
Just then, another voice entered the conversation. I was so distracted with trying to remember the location of the store that I hadn’t even noticed the other two men on the elevator with us. Continue reading
Editor: We’d like to thank Brian for his Bill Murray Story!
In the early 80s, during my time in art school, I was a messenger for a bit. One day I had a delivery in The Chrysler Building and was in the lobby waiting for the elevator. I heard a familiar voice behind me a few feet away; I turned and saw Bill Murray with an older woman, his Mom I assumed at the time. Not many people noticed him in until I heard him tell the woman, “I have to pee”. He got on all fours at the wall by the banks of elevators and lifted his leg like a dog taking a pee. You had to be there, it was very funny with her smacking him telling him to stop.
