In the summer of 1979, Murray had just wrapped shooting for his film Where the Buffalo Roam when he agreed to do a favor for Saturday Night Live producer, Lorne Michaels. Murray was asked to drive Lorne's Volkswagen Super Beetle from Los Angeles to New York. Murray occasionally checked in with Lorne on his journey. Once calling from Florida. "Is Florida on the way to New York?" Lorne asked. It wasn't. Murray arrived just before the new season of SNL started. A ticked off Lorne Michaels had his rage subside when he saw Murray had installed a new stereo in the car.

Any time the Patrick Swayze classic, Road House is on TV Bill will call Scrooged screenwriter Mitch Glazer during the sex scene between Kelly Lynch and Swayze. Kelly is married to Glazer and Murray takes joy in torturing him in this random way. "Kelly's having sex with Patrick Swayze right now." Murray allegedly proclaims. "They're doing it. He's throwing her against the rocks!" If Bill is not around one of his brothers will make the call. Glazer said it was funny the first dozen times but is getting a little tired of it. One of these calls is said to have been made all the way from Russia. With love, I'm sure.

In the summer of 1990, Murray filmed the cult classic What About Bob? He found out MC Hammer was playing a concert nearby and requested tickets from his agent for himself and the entire crew. Murray and his entourage started drinking, hard. Jugs of moonshine were consumed. Murray guesstimates he drank four to five ounces of 190 proof alcohol when MC Hammer invited him on stage. To Bill's surprise, he knew all of the dance moves to "You Can't Touch This" but learned the hard way why Hammer wore baggy pants. A "going commando" Murray split his pants on stage and mooned the crowd.

One of the prickliest moves Murray has made just might be the one he pulled in 1992 while shooting Groundhog Day. Producers asked Murray to hire a personal assistant to act as a go-between for him and the studio. Murray responded by hiring a deaf-mute who only knew Native American sign language. Director Harold Ramis added this to the list of reasons he and Bill stopped speaking. The two comedic legends reconciled shortly before Ramis passed in 2014.

During a break from filming Scrooged, Murray went to a spa in Baja California with Mitch Glazer and Michael O'Donoghue. The trio was surrounded by wealthy, Beverly Hills housewives as they were the only men there. Murray enjoyed his retreat but was asked numerous times for autographs. He made a deal with one woman in a fur coat. If she wanted his autograph, he got to toss her in the pool. With a laugh, the woman agreed and was quite shocked to find herself being scooped up and tossed in the deep end by Murray.

When Elvis Presley died, Murray got on the stand-by list to fly from New York to Memphis. When the likes of Sammy Davis Jr., Farrah Fawcett and Burt Reynolds didn't show, Murray was given a seat on the plane. During the funeral, a group of overeager mourners tried to get through the rear gate of the cemetery. Murray hopped off the celebrity precessional bus and started heading towards the crowd. (cont.)

As Murray headed towards the unruly crowd the hearse (and roughly two dozen motorcycle police officers) arrived. An officer froze Murray in his tracks. Stumbling backwards Bill was horrified to realize he was standing on Elvis' mother's grave. Pallbearers struggled under the weight of The King of Rock and Roll's massive casket. Their stumbling shook loose roses fastened to the coffin. Murray managed to grab one of the flowers and took it back to New York.

In the fall of 2012 Murray visited New York City to check out the recently completed Franklin D. Roosevelt Four Freedoms State Park. Afterward, a beer league kickball game caught his attention. Joining in unannounced each team assumed Bill was just someone's dad from the other team. After a couple of times at the plate, players realized who it was. Murray then jogged around all of the bases, high-fived everyone, gave a bear hug to a player's mom, posed for a team photo, and left.
