See a moving Robin Williams salute at 'Good Will Hunting' bench

A Robin Williams fan in Boston celebrated the late actor Monday night by leaving a message at the bench where Williams and his costar Matt Damon filmed a pivotal scene from the 1997 movie Good Will Hunting. Williams won a Best Supporting Actor Oscar for his performance in the film.

“Sorry guys, I went to see about a girl,” the chalk-written message reads, a paraphrase of one of Williams’ better known lines from Hunting. Below that is what Williams’ character says at the end of the park bench scene: “Your move, chief.” The outlines of two ghostly footprints stand above the words, marking the place Williams once sat.

More mourners have since left additional messages, including quotes from more of Williams’ work in films like Aladdin and Dead Poets Society.
