1. Bill Murray is a legend who stars in some of the most beloved movies of all time like Ghostbusters, Groundhog Day, Lost In Translation, Isle of Dogs, The Royal Tenenbaums, Zombieland, Rushmore, Life Aquatic, Caddyshack... the list goes on.

Quote: "This is the bit in the show where you look at each other and say 'we could go get a burger?'... but don't!"

4. Bill Murray sings a heartfelt rendition of 'I Feel Pretty' from Westside Story. Like, he really gets into it. He also "dances"
