WATCH: Bill Murray drops by bachelor party, offers advice

TORONTO — Actor Bill Murray made E.J. Rumpke’s bachelor party one to remember last weekend.

The 63-year-old comic actor dropped by Rumpke’s party at a steakhouse in Charleston, S.C. and shared some words of wisdom.

“You know how funerals are not for the dead, they’re for the living? Bachelor parties are not for the groom, they’re for the uncommitted,” Murray told the group.

He then offered sage advice to the groom’s single friends.

“If you have someone that you think is ‘the one,’ don’t just sort of think in your ordinary mind, and think ‘Okay, let’s make a date. Let’s plan this and make a party and get married,'” said Murray.

“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.”
