PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Rich Zeoli sat in with Gary R’nel on Monday, Feb. 24 for the 3pm-6pm slot on WPHT 1210AM, when many are grieving the death of legendary comedian, screenwriter and director Harold Ramis. Ramis wasn’t on screen for many of the films he was involved in, but had a hand in many well known comedic projects such as “Animal House,” “Stripes,” “Caddyshack,” and “Ghostbusters,” in which he also co-starred.

Gary R’nel and Rich Zeoli took a moment out of their program to remember Harold Ramis, who passed away at the age of 69 from complications from Autoimmune Inflammatory Vasculitis by playing a memorium sound montage (produced by Afternoon Drive Producer Nikki Marra).

Listen…

Then they contributed some of their favorite lines from some of Ramis’ most popular movies. Rich Zeoli says that one of his favorite lines from Animal House is, “Fat, drunk and stupid is no way to go through life, son” and quickly adds that he also likes the line, “Was it over when the German’s bombed Pearl Harbor?”

Then Afternoon Drive Producer Greg Stocker joins in and adds to the conversation asking if they remember the line, “Zero…point…zero.” Then R’nel, Zeoli and Stocker spend some time reminiscing on their favorite lines from all the iconic movies that had the Harold Ramis touch.
