* CreatorCameo: Creator/HaroldRamis plays a doctor. He makes a very good doctor, since most people associate him with [[Film/{{Ghostbusters}} Dr. Egon Spengler]]. (He later cameoed as a doctor again in ''Film/AsGoodAsItGets''.)

* ExactWords: On the next to last "day", Rita joins Phil to see how he deals with eternity. She's told everything resets on February 3. However, when it's midnight, she's surprised, and asks him why there's no reset. He replies he never said it was at ''midnight''.

** The very first words out of Phil's mouth is where he'd want to be most of all. He's pointing on a weather map, but since we're looking at him live, he's pointing to blue nothingness - nowhere.

* {{Foreshadowing}}: A very clever one. Before Phil even enters the time loop, he complains about having to do the Groundhog Day Festival every year. During the first ceremony, Phil describes everything that’s going to happen before it does.

Phil Connors (Murray), an arrogant and smarmy weatherman for a local TV news station in UsefulNotes/{{Pittsburgh}}, his new producer Rita (Andie [=MacDowell=]), and cameraman Larry (Chris Elliott) go to [[EverytownAmerica Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania]] to film the annual Groundhog Day festival. Phil loathes the annual celebration and is surly throughout the proceedings, wanting nothing more than to pack up and go home. That proves impossible when a sudden blizzard arrives and closes the roads, forcing Phil and the crew to stay the night.

** Phil mentions he “stabbed, shot, poisoned, frozen, hung, electrocuted and burned” himself, but we only get to see the electrocution.

-->'''Phil''': There is no way 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.

** It takes a several years to learn a language to fluency. It is implied he has learned French, Italian, and Spanish, although we know Phil is not above inflating his credentials.

* CharacterDevelopment: Phil goes from a grade-A {{Jerkass}} to a genuine NiceGuy over the course of the movie’s running time — and it’s believable. Of course, ‘running time’ definitely doesn’t equal ‘real time’ in this case.

** It takes a good five years, minimum, to learn a language to fluency. He must have spent months in the library to be able to speak French THAT well.
*** Actually, his first French quotation comes from a song, mentioned in the ending credits, “[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nqo3GEHa3Wc La Bourrée du Célibataire]],” from Music/JacquesBrel. He says: “La fille que j’aimera / Sera comme bon vin / Qui se bonifiera / Un peu chaque matin.”[[note]]Could be translated: “The girl I’ll love / Will be like a good wine / Getting better / A little every morning.”[[/note]] It would not take more than a few minutes of rehearsing to say it the way Phil does, and he mispronounced ‘que’. He also says “Baudelaire ([[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_Baudelaire Other Wiki]]), ''c’est fantastique''.”
*** It is implied in a later scene that he learned both Italian and Spanish, so that’s another ten years right there.
