Groundhog Day Scene 9

Scene 9

Scene 9

  • The movie cuts to a bedside alarm clock. It strikes 6 a.m. and the song "I Got You Babe" by Sonny and Cher starts playing. This all seems really familiar…
  • Phil gets up and hears the radio announcers saying exactly what they did the morning before. He assumes the radio station messed up and is playing the tape from the day before.
  • Something isn't sitting right with Phil when he hears the announcers say it's Groundhog Day. He runs to the window and looks out. The same truck he saw the day before makes the same turn and there's no snow on the ground.
  • Which doesn't make sense, since there was a blizzard the night before. Wasn't there?
  • Phil heads into the hallway and runs into the same man he saw the day before. The man asks him if he thinks it'll be an early spring. Phil throws him against the wall and tells him not to mess with him. He asks him what day it is and the man replies that it's Groundhog Day.
