15 great lines from Groundhog Day

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

Phil: Excuse me, where is everybody going?
Fan on Street: To Gobbler's Knob. It's Groundhog Day.
Phil: It's still just once a year, isn't it?

Rita: I like to see a man of advancing years throwing caution to the wind. It's inspiring in a way.
Phil: My years are not advancing as fast as you might think.

Rita: Don’t you worry about cholesterol, lung canceer, love handles?
Phil: I don’t worry about ANYTHING anymore. … I don’t even have to floss.

Phil: 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: 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."
Gus: Well, Phil, that's one I happen to agree with.

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!

Rita: I think it’s a NICE story. He comes out. He looks around. He wrinkles up his little nose. He sees his shadow, he doesn’t see his shadow. It’s nice. People like it.
Phil: You ARE new, aren’t you? You know, people like blood sausage too. People are morons.

(driving down the railroad tracks toward an oncoming train)
Phil: I’m betting he's gonna swerve first.

Phil: (on the phone) 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.

Felix's Wife: Dr. Connors, I want to thank you for fixing Felix’s back. He can even help around the house again.
Phil: Well, I’m sorry to hear that, Felix.

(after being pulled over by the police)
Phil: Yeah, three cheeseburgers, two medium fries, two chocolate shakes and one medium Coke.

Rita: Phil, you going to the Groundhog dinner?
Phil: No, I had groundhog for lunch. Wasn’t bad, tastes like chicken.

Phil: I was in the Virgin Islands once. I met a girl. We ate lobster, drank pina 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?

Rita: Do you ever have déjà vu?
Phil: Didn’t you just ask me that?
