Groundhog Day

Ned: Phil? Phil Connors? Phil Connors, I thought that was you! Now don't you tell me you don't remember me 'cause I sure as heckfire remember you!
Phil: Not a chance.
Ned: Ned! ...Ryerson! "Needlenose Ned"? "Ned the Head"? C'mon, buddy! Case Western High! I did the whistling belly-button trick at the high school talent show? Bing! Ned Ryerson, got the shingles real bad senior year, almost didn't graduate? Bing, again! Ned Ryerson, I dated your sister Mary Pat a couple of times until you told me not to anymore? Well?
Phil: Ned Ryerson?
Ned: BING!
Phil: Bing.

Phil: You wanna throw up here, or in the car?
Ralph: I think... both.

[To Rita about Phil.]
Larry: Did he actually refer to himself as "the talent"?

Phil: I'm a god. I'm not *the* God... I don't think.

Larry: People think that all cameramen do is point the camera at things, but it's a *heck* of a lot more complicated than that!

Phil Connors: Well, what if there is no tomorrow? There wasn't one today.

Man in Hallway: Think it'll be an early spring?
Phil: Winter, slumbering in the open air, wears on its smiling face a dream... of spring. Ciao!
Man in Hallway: Ciao!

Phil: Where's everybody going?
Piano teacher: To Gobbler's Knob. It's Groundhog Day.
Phil: It's still just once a year, isn't it?

[Driving down the railroad tracks toward an approaching train.]
Phil: I'm betting he's going to swerve first.

Phil: I am asking you for help!
Rita: Well, what do you want me to do?
Phil: I don't know! You're a producer! Think of something!

Phil: There is a major network interested in me.
Larry: That would be the Home Shopping Network.

Rita: Are you drunk or something?
Phil: Drunk is more fun.

Ned: Do you have life insurance, Phil? Because if you do, you could always use a little more, I mean, who couldn't? But let me tell something--I got's a feeling [whistles] you ain't got any. Am I right or am I right or am I right?

Phil: I was in the Virgin Islands once. I met a girl. We ate lobster and drank pina coladas. At sunset we made love like sea otters. *That* was a pretty good day. Why couldn't I get that day over and over and over...

Ned: What are you doing later?
Phil: Something else.

First D.J.: Rise and shine, campers, and don't forget your booties 'cause it's cooooold out there today.
Second D.J.: It's cold out there every day. What is this, Miami Beach?
First D.J.: Not hardly.

Rita: I like to see a man of advancing years throwing caution to the wind. It's inspiring in a way.
Phil: My years are not advancing as fast as you might think.

Phil: You want a prediction about the weather, you're asking the wrong Phil. I'll give you a winter prediction: It's gonna be cold, it's gonna be grey, and it's gonna last you for the rest of your life.

Phil: Do you know what today is?
Rita: No, what?
Phil: Today is tomorrow. It happened.

Rita: Would you like to come to dinner with Larry and me?
Phil Connors: No thank you. I've seen Larry eat.

Mrs. Lancaster: Did you sleep well, Mr. Connors?
Phil Connors: I slept alone, Mrs. Lancaster.

Phil Connors: So, did you sleep OK without me? You tossed and turned, didn't you?
Rita: You're incredible.
Phil Connors: Who told you?

Phil Connors: Do you ever have deja vu Mrs Lancaster?
Mrs Lancaster: I don't think so, but I could check with the kitchen.

Rita: Why would anybody want to steal a groundhog?
Larry: I can think of a couple of reasons... the pervert!

Phil Connors: Can I have another one of these with some booze in it?

Phil Connors: Can I be serious with you with you for a minute?
Rita: I don't know. Can you?

[It's Phil Connors' second Groundhog Day in a row, but the rest of the people seem to have completely forgotten yesterday]
Phil Connors: Well, it's groundhog day... again.

Phil Connors: Can I talk to you about a matter that is not work-related?
Rita: You never talk about work.

Phil Connors: What would you do if you were stuck in one place and every day was exactly the same, and nothing that you did mattered?
Ralph: That about sums it up for me.

[Phil Connors drives (because Ralph and Gus are drunk) right through a mailbox]
Gus: Hey Phil, if we wanted to hit mailboxes we could let Ralph drive.

Phil Connors: It's the same things your whole life. "Clean up your room!", "Stand up straight!", "Pick up your feet!", "Take it like a man!", "Be nice to your sister!", "Don't mix beer and wine, ever!". Oh yeah, "Don't drive on the railroad track!"
Gus: Eh, Phil. That's one I happen to agree with.

[Phil Connors is stopped by the police after some crazy driving]
Phil Connors: Yeah, 3 cheeseburgers, 2 large fries, 2 chocolate shakes and a large coke.

Phil Connors: There is no way this winter is EVER going to end as long as that groundhog keeps seeing his shadow. I don't see any way out of it. He's got to be stopped. And I have to stop him.

Piano Teacher: Not bad... Mr. Connors, you say this is your first lesson?
Phil Connors: Yes, but my father was a piano *mover*, so...

Rita: Have you ever had deja vu?
Phil Connors: Didn't you just ask me that?

Phil Connors: I've been stabbed, shocked, poisoned, frozen, hung, electrocuted, and burned.
Rita: Oh, really?
Phil Connors: Every day I wake up without a scratch on me, not a dent in the fender... I am an immortal!

Rita: What did you do today?
Phil Connors: Oh, same-old same-old.

Felix's Wife: Dr. Connors. I want to thank you for fixing Felix's back. He can even help around the house again.
Phil Connors: I'm sorry to hear that, Felix.

[On the phone, trying to leave during a snowstorm]
Phil: Are you saying that all long-distance lines are down because of the snow? What about satellite communication? Is it snowing in space too? Don't you have a line for emergencies? Perhaps a special line for celebrities? I am both -- I'm a CELEBRITY in an EMERGENCY.

Phil Connors: When Chekhov saw the long winter, he saw a winter bleak and dark and bereft of hope. Yet we know that winter is just another step in the cycle of life. But standing here among the people of Punxsutawney and basking in the warmth of their hearths and hearts, I couldn't imagine a better fate than a long and lustrous winter.
