Writer, producer, director, actor: Ramis defined comedy for a generation. So I guess all I have to say is, "Don't go! All the plants are gonna die!"

2. I doubt there were many people who, whether they liked him or not, didn't respect him. Even fellow Chicagoan President Obama released a statement, quoting a line from Caddyshack.

"Michelle and I were saddened to hear of the passing of Harold Ramis, one of America's greatest satirists, and like so many other comedic geniuses, a proud product of Chicago's Second City. When we watched his movies – from "Animal House" and "Caddyshack" to "Ghostbusters" and "Groundhog Day" – we didn't just laugh until it hurt. We questioned authority. We identified with the outsider. We rooted for the underdog. And through it all, we never lost our faith in happy endings. Our thoughts and prayers are with Harold's wife, Erica, his children and grandchildren, and all those who loved him, who quote his work with abandon, and who hope that he received total consciousness."

6. "I feel a big obligation to the audience, almost in a moral sense, to say something useful. If I'm going to spend a year of my life on these things, I want something that I feel that strongly about."

7. "You just make sure you don't screw it up. It's going to work as long as you don't mess it up."

9. "My job is to come up with something that you like and you agree with that you would play wholeheartedly. If we disagree, I may not be doing my job correctly."

10. "No matter what I have to say, I'm still trying to say it in comedic form."

12. Thank you Mr. Ramis.
