In the credits, his name is Shaun Chaiyabhat. Chaiyabhat is a Thai name, but he looks white. I'm guessing just one parent was Thai.

Speaking of cute: Debbie the newlywed voices Princess Bubblegum on Adventure Time, and was Starfire on Teen Titans.

So you're into someone who makes noises like a chipmunk when she gets real excited? O...kay. Maybe that turned Phil off given his obvious loathing of all things rodentia.

Phil: Ned Ryerson - I have missed you so much. [hugs him] I don't know where you're headed, but... can you call in sick? [keeps hugging him and rubbing his back]
Ned: Uh... I gotta get going.

One thing that has always bothered me:


Who would spend a thousand days in a row hitting on somebody pretentious enough to drink to world peace?

Hitting on Ned was a better idea.

What bothered me was the set-up before. She asked "What should we drink to?" then when he suggests the groundhog, she shoots it down with world peace.

It's true: that was unattractive.

Ramis has said on-camera that he was stunned by Andie MacDowell's beauty. Guess he was out cold when that part of the script was okayed.

Note that people have been making jibes about Edge of Tomorrow such as "No, it's not like Groundhog Day at all. We swear!"

Tom Cruise is no Bill Murray.

Maybe Xenu is NOT omniscient. Maybe just being around for 75-million years he knows everything...

Hitting Ned is even better.

Especially if he is the true force behind the repeating. And all just to sell insurance. That's truly evil!

Good evening. Tonight on 'It's the Mind', we examine the phenomenon of déjà vu. That strange feeling we sometimes get that we've lived through something before, that what is happening now has already happened.

I thought it was pretty clear she was a prostitute. Unless I'm missing the sarcasm...

Me too. She was miffed they weren't going to a costume party. Who takes a hooker to a costume party?

When Chekhov saw the long winter, he saw a winter bleak and dark and bereft of hope. Yet we know that winter is just another step in the cycle of life. But standing here among the people of Punxsutawney and basking in the warmth of their hearths and hearts, I couldn't imagine a better fate than a long and lustrous winter.
