* Except that, when the loop finally broke on February 3, it was ''her'' who seemed to be a little upset they hadn't moved further the preceding night...



Maybe he decided to try walking to Pittsburgh after all, maybe it was the hit on his head with the shovel, maybe shock from the cold shower, maybe something else, in any case, Phil died on the first day. He had the to go trough Pugatory ([[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Purgatory Purgatory, according to Catholic Church doctrine, is an intermediate state after physical death in which those destined for heaven "undergo purification, so as to achieve the holiness necessary to enter the joy of heaven".]]) in the form of repeating his last day on earth, until he fianlly entered heaven (The Next Day).

[[WMG: Phil's inability to save the homeless man is deliberate on the part of...whatever is causing the time loop]]
Phil, after his numerous attempts to commit suicide fail, ends up declaring that he's a god. This, on top of mastering all the numerous skills that he ends up showing off later on, cause the Powers That Be to nullify any attempt he makes to save the homeless man as a way of teaching Phil that, no, he's not a god, and that there are some things that he cannot do, nor is he meant to do. Once he accepts this as part of his CharacterDevelopment, things move forward toward him eventually breaking the loop.

[[WMG: Fred was the sort of guy who would be not afraid to cry in front of Debbie]]
...And change poopy diapers, and perhaps even be willing to use the word "poopy", if necessary. This spurred on her second thoughts about the wedding, because she was the sort of girl who wanted an overly macho sort of man (notice it is she who gets the most excited about the Wrestlemania tickets during their conversation with Phil.) Fred senses that Rita is looking for the more sensitive type of man, thus his longing glance towards her when he kisses her cheek at the party, but alas, her attentions have already been turned to Phil by this point. Debbie sees the longing glance that Fred gives Rita, and angrily pulls him away, which foreshadows a long and unhappy marriage, with an angry, controlling, jealous, and deeply critical woman. This, coupled with many torturous nights viewing pro wrestling, eventually causes a SanitySlippage for Fred, thusly causing him to become AxCrazy at some point, flipping tables and flinging cutlery at the local Punxatawney Diner, raving about how Punxatawney Phil personally told him that the world would be experiencing six millennia of an uninhabitable ice age, and they must all move underground or die, and will be later committed to an insane asylum for the rest of his life, when all is said and done.

Because every WMG page needs a crossover with WH40k.

* Or maybe Phil didn't commit rape and wanton murder because, you know, he had enough of a conscious to not do so? Even if history repeats, I don't think all but a sociopath would be able to do what you're describing.

* That's reading quite a bit into it, inasmuch as all of those are things one can do to oneself -- and in fact we see one of them.

While daydreaming about all the cray things Phil could do with his powers is always an interesting thought experiment, he may have found himself unable to do things which would possibly haunt him forever - shooting up the town square, rape, cold-blooded murder, killing Rita herself - if the PowersThatBe were intending for him to end up with Rita in the end they kept him from doing anything that would interfere with that end product of the loop.
