Murray said, “You know how funerals are not for the dead, they're for the living? Bachelor parties are not for the groom, they're for the uncommitted.” He then directed some advice towards the unattached members of the party, because it was “too late” for the groom. “‘If you have someone that you think is The One, don't just sort of think in your ordinary mind, Okay, let's pick a date. Let's plan this and make a party and get married,” he began. “Take that person and travel around the world. Buy a plane ticket for the two of you to travel all around the world, and go to places that are hard to go to and hard to get out of,” said the actor. “And if when you come back to JFK, when you land in JFK, and you're still in love with that person, get married at the airport”, he finished.
