Bill Murray and Harold Ramis frequently worked with one another until shortly after they filmed Groundhog Day in 1993. Unfortunately after filming the 1993 movie, the two had a falling out, but on Feb. 25, NY Daily News reports that Bill Murray speaks about his estranged friend and director.

Murray and Ramis collaborated on many works including the National Lampoon Show off Broadway, Meatballs, Caddyshack, Groundhog Day, and Ghostbusters. Bill Murray claims that Ramis “earned his keep on this planet” and may God bless him. The two were good friends and had a great partnership in the professional world until the filming in 1993. During an interview in 2004, Harold Ramis claimed that Bill Murray’s “erratic” behavior, stemming from his marriage falling apart during that time, was putting a strain on their relationship. Harold Ramis went on to say that Murray was unavailable, irrationally mean at times and constantly late. Ramis also said that he and Murray quit speaking after filming Groundhog Day. Harold also stated that Bill would be there for anyone, for example he would give you a kidney if you needed one, he just wouldn’t return your phone calls.

Harold Ramis passed away on Monday, Feb. 26 due to complications stemming from autoimmune inflammatory vasculitis, in which he has been suffering since 2010. Bill Murray’s words were filled with grief for his long time friend and co-worker. NY Daily News did not report on when the services for Harold Ramis will be held.
