Punxsutawney Phil Sowerby is set to determine the fate of our weather for the next few months today, which has left us with bated breath anticipating our summer wardrobe. No matter what Phil says from year to year, however, we know one thing: We're having a better day than Bill Murray did in the 1993 comedy "Groundhog Day." Here are eight quotes from the movie to prove it.
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 gray, and it's gonna last you for the rest of your life.
What would you do if you were stuck in one place and every day was exactly the same, and nothing that you did mattered?
I have been stabbed, shot, poisoned, frozen, hung, electrocuted and burned, and every morning I wake up without a scratch on me, not a dent in the fender. I am an immortal.
I told you. I wake up every day, right here, right in Punxsutawney, and it's always February 2nd, and there's nothing I can do about it.
You can expect hazardous travel later today with that, you know, that, uh, that blizzard thing.
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. That was a pretty good day. Why couldn't I get that day over and over and over?
Believe it or not, I studied 19th-century French poetry.
I killed myself so many times I don't even exist anymore.
