Bill Murray's quotes

  • I'm a nut, but not just a nut.
  • If you walk up to some random person on the street, grab them by the shoulder, and say 'Did you just see what I saw?!'....you'll find that no one wants to talk to you.
  • There aren't many downsides to being rich, other than paying taxes and having relatives asking for money. But being famous, that's a 24 hour job right there.
  • I know how to be sour. I know that taste.
  • It was cool that an Oscar nomination never happened for a long time, and then it was cool that it did happen. But I don't want to always be feeling this thing in my chest like, 'Am I good enough? Am I gonna be rejected?'
  • I think midlife crisis is just a point where people's careers have reached some plateau and they have to reflect on their personal relationships.
  • One of the things I like about acting is that, in a funny way, I come back to myself.
  • Whenever I think of the high salaries we are paid as film actors, I think it is for the travel, the time away, and any trouble you get into through being well known. It's not for the acting, that's for sure.
  • Movie acting suits me because I only need to be good for ninety seconds at a time.
  • I've had some success in movies, so I really don't think about success. You like to have it, but I'm not desperate for it.
  • {Before jumping from a plane at 13,500 feet] Is there some frequent flyer program?
  • The first 45 minutes of the original Ghostbusters (1984) is some of the funniest stuff ever made. The second one was disappointing because the special-effects guys took over. I had something like two scenes - and they're the only funny ones in the movie.
  • The more relaxed you are, the better you are at everything: the better you are with your loved ones, the better you are with enemies, the better you are at your job, the better you are with yourself.
  • [on screenplays] The early days, you could change every single word and no one cared. It was like, 'That's fine. That was terrible anyway'. But now, if the script's really good, you don't need to change very much.
  • [on developing a film character] I hate to give away my secrets but I do almost nothing. Being slightly lazy works for me.
  • [on his altercation with Lucy Liu on the set of Charlie's Angels (2000)] Look, I will dismiss you completely if you are unprofessional and working with me...When our relationship is professional, and you're not getting that done, forget it.
  • If I hadn't been a comedian or an actor or whatever it is that I am now, I would have been a professional athlete, probably a baseball player.
  • (On his fight with Chevy Chase) It was an Oedipal thing, a rupture. Because we all felt mad he had left us, and somehow I was the anointed avenging angel, who had to speak for everyone. But Chevy and I are friends now. It's all fine.
  • (Interview with Jessica Lee Jernigan (May 1999)) I think that the online world has actually brought books back. People are reading because they're reading the damn screen. That's more reading than people used to do.
  • You show me an actor doing a shit movie, I'll show you a guy with a bad divorce.
  • (On The Razor's Edge (1984) as quoted in Stills Magazine) I don't know what my fans are going to think. It's definitely not what they're used to from me.
  • When you become famous, you've got like a year or two where you act like a real asshole. You can't help yourself. It happens to everybody. You've got like two years to pull it together - or it's permanent.
  • If I see someone who's out cold on their feet, I'm going to try to wake that person up. It's what I want someone to do for me. Wake me the hell up and come back to the planet.
