Plus I feel like Bill Murray trapped in Punxsutawney
A reference to Groundhog Day, a 1993 comedy written and directed by Harold Ramis and starring Bill Murray. Murray plays a weatherman who ends up stuck in the small town of Punxsutawney, PA, reporting on that town’s famous “Groundhog Day” celebration. Murray soon finds that he is “stuck” in that town on that day — every morning he wakes up at 6:00 a.m. in his Punxsutawney hotel bed on February 2. Jay sympathizes with this sense of being trapped in time, unable to advance, as he awaits his record release date.
The groundhog that Murray seeks out is named Punxsutawney Phil, and Murray’s character is named Phil Connors; these Phil references lead to the next line.
