A weatherman finds himself inexplicably living the same day over and over again.

Well, what if there is no tomorrow? There wasn’t one today.
– Phil

What would you do if you were stuck in one place and every day was exactly the same, and nothing that you did mattered?
– Phil
That about sums it up for me.
– Ralph

Do you ever have déjà vu, Mrs. Lancaster?
– Phil
I don’t think so, but I could check with the kitchen.
– Mrs. Lancaster

You want a prediction about the weather, you’re asking the wrong Phil. I’ll give you a winter prediction: It’s gonna be cold, it’s gonna be grey, and it’s gonna last you for the rest of your life.
– Phil

I was in the Virgin Islands once. I met a girl. We ate lobster, drank piña coladas. At sunset, we made love like sea otters.
– Phil
*That* was a pretty good day. Why couldn’t I get *that* day over, and over, and over…
– Phil

Do you every have déjà vu?
– Rita
Didn’t you just ask me that?
– Phil

I think you’re the kindest, sweetest, prettiest person I’ve ever met in my life. I’ve never seen anyone that’s nicer to people than you are. The first time I saw you… something happened to me. I never told you but… I knew that I wanted to hold you as hard as I could. I don’t deserve someone like you. But if I ever could, I swear I would love you for the rest of my life.
– Phil
Did you say something?
– Rita
Good night.
– Phil

Phil, why weren’t you like this last night? You just fell asleep.
-Rita
It was the end of a VERY long day.
– Phil

Phil? Hey, Phil? Phil! Phil Connors? Phil Connors, I thought that was you!
– Ned
Hi, how you doing? Thanks for watching.
– Phil
Hey, hey! Now, don’t you tell me you don’t remember me because I sure as heckfire remember you.
– Ned
Not a chance.
– Phil
Ned… Ryerson. “Needlenose Ned”? “Ned the Head”? C’mon, buddy. Case Western High. Ned Ryerson: I did the whistling belly-button trick at the high school talent show? Bing! Ned Ryerson: got the shingles real bad senior year, almost didn’t graduate? Bing, again. Ned Ryerson: I dated your sister Mary Pat a couple times until you told me not to anymore? Well?
– Ned
Ned Ryerson?
– Phil
Bing!
– Ned
Bing.
– Phil

Not bad… Mr. Connors, you say this is your first lesson?
– Piano Teacher
Yes, but my father was a piano *mover*, so…
– Phil

There is no way that this winter is *ever* going to end as long as this groundhog keeps seeing his shadow. I don’t see any other way out. He’s got to be stopped. And I have to stop him.
– Phil

Phil?
– Ned
Ned?
– Phil

Yeah, three cheeseburgers, two large fries, two chocolate shakes and one large coke.
– Phil
And some flapjacks.
– Ralph
Too early for flapjacks?
– Phil

I’m betting he’s going to swerve first.
– Phil

I’m a god.
– Phil
You’re God?
– Rita
I’m a god. I’m not *the* God… I don’t think.
– Phil

It’s the same thing your whole life: “Clean up your room. Stand up straight. Pick up your feet. Take it like a man. Be nice to your sister. Don’t mix beer and wine, ever.” Oh yeah: “Don’t drive on the railroad track.”
– Phil
Well, Phil, that’s one I happen to agree with.
– Gus

Why are you here?
– Phil
You said stay so I stayed.
– Rita
I can’t even make a collie stay.
– Phil

This is pitiful. A thousand people freezing their butts off waiting to worship a rat. What a hype. Groundhog Day used to mean something in this town. They used to pull the hog out, and they used to eat it. You’re hypocrites, all of you!
– Phil Connors

When Chekhov saw the long winter, he saw a winter bleak and dark and bereft of hope. Yet we know that winter is just another step in the cycle of life. But standing here among the people of Punxsutawney and basking in the warmth of their hearths and hearts, I couldn’t imagine a better fate than a long and lustrous winter.
– Phil

You wanna throw up here, or you wanna throw up in the car?
– Phil
I think… both.
– Ralph

I have been stabbed, shot, poisoned, frozen, hung, electrocuted, and burned.
– Phil
Oh, really?
– Rita
…and every morning I wake up without a scratch on me, not a dent in the fender… I am an immortal.
– Phil

This is one time where television really fails to capture the true excitement of a large squirrel predicting the weather.
– Phil

Ned, I would love to stay here and talk with you… but I’m not going to.
– Phil

This day was perfect. You couldn’t have planned a day like this.
– Rita
Well, you can. It just takes an awful lot of work.
– Phil

Don’t drive angry. Don’t drive angry!
– Phil

So, did you sleep OK without me? You tossed and turned, didn’t you?
– Phil
You’re incredible.
– Rita
Who told you?
– Phil

Do you know what today is?
– Phil
No, what?
– Rita
Today is tomorrow. It happened.
– Phil

Come on, *all* the long distance lines are down? What about the satellite? Is it snowing in space? Don’t you have some kind of a line that you keep open for emergencies or for celebrities? I’m both. I’m a celebrity in an emergency.
– Phil
