* Keen-eared audience might make note of this. The mayor is doting over Phil the groundhog and consistently notes that the groundhog has a "tint of sadness" each repeating day. But on the perfect day, Phil the weatherman's final day in the time loop... the "tint of sadness" line is conspicuously absent.

The mayor is doting over Phil the groundhog groundhog, before the party, with Rita in proximity, and consistently notes that the groundhog has a "tint of sadness" each repeating day.

* From the musical: In "One Day", Rita's hypothetical man she has no interest in becomes "drunk and existential every time the Steelers lose a game." Why the Steelers, out of any sports team? Because they live in Pennsylvania!

* One could argue that the loop finally broke when Rita entirely voluntarily put her little hand in Phil's one, just as that annoying song had demanded.

*** It could be argued that the groundhog is a metaphor for Phil in that Phil, too, only comes out (as it were) when he ''can'' see his shadow. At the beginning of the film, Phil thinks he's got it together and it's the rest of the world that's at fault. Over the course of the loop, he realises that he has a shadow, namely, his selfishness and lack of concern for other people. Only when he understands clearly how much of a scumbag he can be, does he begin to be able to do something about it.

* [[ShrugOfGod Accounts vary,]] but Phil must have been in the loop for years. It would have taken that long to become a skilled pianist, for example. After having spent so long living the same day, and coming to rely on knowing everything that would happen, will he be able to cope with returning to a world full of unknowns?

** Well, since there's no evidence of him having somehow witnessed the things between the completion of his suicides and 06:00 February 3, this experience - as an experience, that is - is worth little more than the experience of an ordinary person who went through BungledSuicide. But he could be an invaluable suicide expert on ''Series/{{MythBusters}}''.
