Groundhog Day Scene 11

Scene 11

Scene 11

  • Phil gets to the Groundhog Day festival and tries to tell Rita he's having a problem. Rita asks him to do his Groundhog Day news piece and then they can talk.
  • Phil does the first part of his piece, but leaves before he does the second half. He returns to his B&B room and gets in the shower. He has already forgotten that there's no hot water, so he ends up jolting himself with an ice cold shower… again.
  • Phil gets on the phone to figure out when he can make a long distance call. The lines are apparently down and he has no way of contacting the world outside Punxsutawney.
  • Phil breaks a pencil in half and puts the two pieces on his nightstand before falling asleep for the night.
