Scene 34

Scene 34

  • Phil is back at the Groundhog Day ceremonies with a bunch of people gathered behind him. He gives a really poetic and heartwarming speech about the great people of Punxsutawney, which makes him a bit of a hero to those who hear him.
  • After he's done, Rita asks him if he wants to grab a cup of coffee. He says he has to take a rain check because he has some errands to run.
  • Phil walks down a neighborhood street and checks his watch. He runs beneath a tree just in time to catch a falling child.
  • Next, some old ladies get a flat tire. And before they know it, Phil is jacking them up with a spare tire ready for them.
  • Now Phil is walking into a restaurant where the head of the Groundhog Day festivities is choking to death. Phil gives him the Heimlich maneuver and saves his life.
