Delightful Dialogue: Groundhog Day

Rita: What about me, Phil? Do you know me too?

Phil: I know all about you. You like producing, but you hope for more than Channel 9 Pittsburgh.

Rita: Well, everyone knows that!

Phil: You like boats, but not the ocean. You go to a lake in the summer with your family up in the mountains. There's a long wooden dock and a boathouse with boards missing from the roof, and a place you used to crawl underneath to be alone. You're a sucker for French poetry and rhinestones. You're very generous. You're kind to strangers and children, and when you stand in the snow you look like an angel.

Rita: How are you doing this?

Phil: I told you. I wake up every day, right here, right in Punxsutawney, and it's always February 2nd, and there's nothing I can do about it.

~ Andie MacDowell and Bill Murray in Groundhog Day (1993)

That's really funny; me and my co-workers were just talking about this movie this morning. We were trying to figure out what day of the week it was that kept repeating. I want to say Thursday.

JRL - good questions, I don't know! I'll have to rewatch to find out! Interesting fact, I was just reading up on IMDB and apparently Phil (Bill Murray) is supposed to have spent 10 years reliving Groundhog day! CRAZY!
