Okay, so a great actor/director/person has passed away. I'm not very good at grieving. At least not when it comes to people. I won't lie though, I cried literally all day when I found out Tom Clancy had passed away. The same thing happened when Douglas Adams passed on. I find myself tearing up today randomly over Harold Ramis. Overall though, I just don't grieve the traditional way. I make jokes. It's how I deal with the passing of a person. Through laughter or perhaps better said celebrating their life and not their passing.
That said, as soon as I heard that Ramis had passed my mind could not help but go to something funny. My way of dealing. My first thought was "Hey! We're walking!" Followed by "Shawn, you're my same height! That is neat." My favorite though will always be "Your mother!"
So here they are.
And since I can't find a copy of that full "your mother" clip, here's the lines for it.
Walter Peck: Hold it! I want this man arrested! Captain, these men are in criminal violation of the Environmental Protection Act! And this explosion is a direct result of it!
Dr. Egon Spengler: YOUR MOTHER!
Now, to add my own little thing to it, I'm sure somewhere right now Harold/Egon is walking with Slimer. Possibly discussing the current state of world affairs with Tom Clancy. Maybe even having a Pangalactic Gargleblaster with Douglas Adams as they hitchhike their way across the galaxy. I want to believe that. So that's what I'm sure is going on as you all read this.
