A bedside clock strikes 6 a.m. and the song "I Got You Babe" starts playing. Get used to this, because it's gonna happen a lot in this movie.
Two radio announcers cut into the song and yammer about how a big blizzard is going to hit Punxsutawney. Then they ask the big question: Will the groundhog Punxsutawney Phil see his shadow? That would mean six more weeks of winter. And no one wants that.
After leaving his room, Phil runs into a random guy who asks him if he thinks there'll be an early spring. Phil sarcastically responds that he predicts March 21st will be the first day of spring (which it is).
