Actor, writer and director Harold Ramis died this week. His credits include "SCTV," "Ghostbusters," "Animal House," "Stripes" and "Groundhog Day."

In 2004, a New Yorker profile of Ramis noted:

The secret of American commercial success is to hijack a subculture and ransom it to the mainstream. What Elvis did for rock and Eminem did for rap, Harold Ramis did for attitude: he mass-marketed the sixties to the seventies and eighties. He took his generation’s anger and curiosity and laziness and woolly idealism and gave it a hyper-articulate voice. He wised it up.

Here are our a few classic Ramis moments:

"BLOWN UP, SIR."



 "OH, HE GOT ALL OF THAT ONE."

 

 

"PRINT IS DEAD."

 

"NO, WE'RE NOT HOMOSEXUALS, BUT WE ARE WILLING TO LEARN."
