Scene 17

Scene 17

  • The clock strikes 6 a.m. and Phil gets up to run to the Groundhog Festival. He immediately runs into Nancy from the diner and uses the info he knows about her to start a conversation. He pretends that they went to high school together.
  • The next time we see them, Phil and Nancy are making out on a couch in front of a fire.
  • Phil accidentally calls Nancy Rita. But he gets out of it by saying that he loves Nancy and wants to marry her.
  • Rather than being weirded out, Nancy finds this romantic. Phil accidentally calls her Rita again, but they keep going anyway.
