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."
