The Pool Scene with Bill Murray from ‘Rushmore’

My friend Ryan was listening to Ruby Tuesday by the Rolling Stones earlier today which randomly made me start thinking about the scene above from Rushmore. This is probably one of my favorite scenes in a movie ever. There’s just something about seeing Bill Murray at his lowest, with his whole family hating him, totally drunk at this shitty kids’ birthday party. But what really seals the deal for me is the song playing the whole time, which is Nothin’ In The World Can Stop Me Worryin’ ’bout That Girl by The Kinks. It’s such a slow and somber song that makes you feel exactly like Bill Murray does.

Sit back and enjoy the next 1:17.
