Scene 28

  • Yup, the bedside clock strikes 6 a.m. and Phil is as good as new after driving off a cliff and exploding inside a truck. He's devastated to realize his plan didn't work. Now he just wants out. He wants to be dead.
  • Phil's first order of business is to take the toaster from downstairs, run a nice bath, and get into it with the toaster plugged in. He electrocutes and kills himself, knocking out power to the rest of the building.
  • Next time we see Phil, he's jumping in front of a truck to kill himself. Then he jumps off the top of a tall building.
  • Rita and Larry come to the morgue to identify Phil's body. Larry insincerely talks about what a great guy Phil was.
