Well, what if there is no tomorrow?
There wasn't one today
When every day you listen to the same radio programme,
when every day you meet the same schoolmate - insurance agent,
when every day ...
and so on - then, yes, you'll start to think that something is wrong.
You'll get frightened. You'll start to worry.
And when programmes are different, people on the streets are different
- everything seems to be normal. Seems.
Until you see, that in fact the programme is the same, and you also stay
the same as the programme.
Is the time really going by or does it stand still?
What happened to Phil?
The world simply stopped to give him reaction, to reflect him, because
there was nothing to reflect.
The idea about equal and gray days is led to logical limit.
Time doesn't exist for Phil any more, because he doesn't generate it.
He seems to have all the eternity for himself, but he even can't die properly.
That's where the Sansara Wheel locked itself!
And here I thought - how often do I go into the new day, but not to the
old one again? It's a question.
To make time go by, to change the world around you, you need to pay effort.
The changes of the world are it's reaction to our impulse.
No impulse - no reaction, everything stands still.

Snowed in during a road-trip expedition to watch the famous groundhog
encounter his shadow, Murray falls into a time warp that is never explained
but pays off so richly that it doesn't need to be. The elaborate loop-the-loop
plot structure cooked up by screenwriter Danny Rubin is crystal-clear
every step of the way, but it's Murray's world-class reactive timing that
makes the jokes explode, and we end up looking forward to each new variation.
He squeezes all the available juice out of every scene. Without forcing
the issue, he makes us understand why this fly-away personality responds
so intensely to the radiant sanity of the TV producer played by Andie
MacDowell. The blissfully clueless Chris Elliott (Cabin Boy) is Murray's
