In Charleston, South Carolina over the weekend, some men were having a little bachelor party when one of them happened to see BILL MURRAY on the other side of the restaurant!

The guys tried to send drinks to Bill, but he wasn't interested.  But, he was interested in sharing a few words of wisdom with them!

First he said, quote, "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."

Then he told them how to figure out if you're with the right person . . . quote, "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."
