Groundhog Day Scene 8

Scene 8

Scene 8

  • Phil heads to a bar back in Punxsutawney to drown his sorrows with booze. Rita and Larry show up to ask if he wants to go to the Groundhog Dinner. Phil answers that he already had groundhog for lunch.
  • Phil heads back to his room to take a shower. But he's blasted by ice-cold water, which only improves his mood. (Sarcasm.)
  • Phil heads into the hallway to ask the B&B owner if there's any hot water. She laughs and says of course not: there wouldn't be any today. We have no clue why there wouldn't be any hot water, and Phil doesn't bother following up. He just takes it as another sign of how annoying this town is.
