It took me a while to figure out that the cheesy "200 years old" song at the beginning was about the Bicentennial.

bill murray wasn't funny then and he hasn't improved over the years So I jump ship in Hong Kong and make my way over to Tibet, and I get on as a looper at a course over in the Himalayas. A looper? A looper, you know, a caddy, a looper, a jock. So, I tell them I'm a pro jock, and who do you think they give me? The Dalai Lama, himself. Twelfth son of the Lama. The flowing robes, the grace, bald... striking. So, I'm on the first tee with him. I give him the driver. He hauls off and whacks one - big hitter, the Lama... long - into a ten-thousand foot crevasse, right at the base of this glacier. Do you know what the Lama says? Gunga galunga... gunga, gunga-galunga. So we finish the eighteenth and he's gonna stiff me. And I say, "Hey, Lama, hey, how about a little something, you know, for the effort, you know." And he says, "Oh, uh, there won't be any money, but when you die, on your deathbed, you will receive total consciousness." So I got that goin' for me... which is nice.

I read somewhere that that entire speech was improved. Utter brilliance! On a side note, I thought it was total enlighenment he would receive on his deathbed?

Bill Murry not funny, I bet to differ.

On the way to give a speech at the UN, the Dalai Lama walked up to a hotdog vendor on the street and said... "Make me one with everything."

Improvised! Never knew that. That is incredible. And it's definitely "total consciousness". I've had that quote memorized since god knows how many times we watched it in college.

In a side note, much of that movie was improvised, so I'm not sure why I reacted surprised. I heard the comedians (Chevy, Bill, and Rodney in particular) were impossible to direct in that movie because they all were trying to "stand out" and rolled with their own improv humor constantly. In another side note, I would not be too surprised if each of the aforementioned comedians had a turn with Lacey Underall. Well, I guess it's a bit difficult to envision anyone having sex with Rodney Dangerfield.....

On the way to give a speech at the UN, the Dalai Lama walked up to a hotdog vendor on the street and said... "Make me one with everything." The hot dog vendor said "that'll be $2.50." So the Dalai Lama handed him a five dollar bill. And waited. Finally he said to the hot dog vendor "hey, where's my change?" The vendor replied, "change must come from within."

Phyllis George was HOT! Why's everyone looking at Bill Murray so closely?

Because, if you look directly at the pantsuit, you'll burn your retinas out. You have to kind of let Phyllis carom off of somebody else, camera obscura style.

The pantsuit was a style of the times. Look at that hot bod that pantsuit is around! She's still much easier on the eyes than Andrea Kramer (I don't know if I spelled her name right, and I really don't care).
