“I Collect Spores, Molds and Fungus”

The BRILLIANT Egon Spengler Harold Ramis is dead.

Oh, I just adored him, as much for being a decent human being as a comedic national treasure:

One of my favorite exchanges EVER:

Dr. Egon Spengler (Ramis): There’s something very important I forgot to tell you.

Dr. Peter Venkman (Murray): What?

Dr. Egon Spengler: Don’t cross the streams.

Dr. Peter Venkman: Why?

Dr. Egon Spengler: It would be bad.

Dr. Peter Venkman: I’m fuzzy on the whole good/bad thing. What do you mean, “bad”?

Dr. Egon Spengler: Try to imagine all life as you know it stopping instantaneously and every molecule in your body exploding at the speed of light.

Dr Ray Stantz (Ackroyd): Total protonic reversal.

Dr. Peter Venkman: Right. That’s bad. Okay. All right. Important safety tip. Thanks, Egon.

Another great movie…

    Loved him in “As good as it gets”. He played the doctor. The scenes between him and Helen Hunt and the actress playing her mom were just sweet sweet sweet.

    Rest in Peace Private Ziskey.

    I’m surprised that Ramis was 69. A reminder that we’re all getting older.

    His roots were in improvisation and it’s been said that much of his dialogue in his movies, although based on a general script, was ad-libbed. He always seemed like a real fun guy to be around.

    “Have you ever been convicted of a crime?”

    “Convicted? No, not convicted…”
