Groundhog Day (1993)
Chris Elliott: Larry
[Waking after a night of reading poetry and only chaste sleep with Rita, Phil jumps out of bed, determined to show himself as a new and likable man. He gives a wad of cash to the Old Man beggar and shows up early for the photo shoot, carrying a tray of coffees just the way that Rita and Larry like them, and with Larry's favorite pastry]
Phil : Who wants coffee? Get it while it's hot!
Rita : [surprised] Oh! Thanks, Phil!
Phil : [Handing Larry a lidded styrofoam container of coffee] Larry? Skim milk, two sugar.
Larry : [Also surprised] Yeah. Thanks, Phil!
Phil : Pastry?
[Phil offers the tray to Rita, who looks enticed, but says:]
Rita : No. We're just setting up.
Phil : Pastry, Larry? Take your pick.
Larry : Well, thanks, Phil. Raspberry, great.
Phil : Say, I was just talking with Buster Green, he's the head groundhog honcho. And he said, if we set up over here
[he points his thumb over his shoulder]
Phil : , we might get a better shot. What do you think?
[Rita is still surprised that Phil Connors is being so thoughtful and helpful]
Rita : Sounds good.
Phil : Larry, what do you think?
[It is obvious that Phil has never asked for Larry's opinion in his life, and Larry grins]
Larry : Yeah. Let's go for it.
Rita : [Pleased] Good work, Phil.
Phil : Maybe we'll get lucky. Let me give you a hand with the heavy stuff.
[Phil takes the backpack and news-camera]
Larry : Uh...
Phil : No, no, you got your coffee.
[They start to walk to the "better" spot]
Phil : We never talk, Larry. Do you have kids?
[Rita stares in astonishment, then slowly follows them]
[to Rita about Phil]
Larry : Did he actually call himself "the talent"?
Larry : [about Phil] He's out of his gourd.
[to Nancy, about being a photojournalist]
Larry : People just don't understand what is involved in this. This is an art-form! You know, I think that most people just think that I hold a camera and point at stuff, but there is a *heck* of a lot more to it than just that.
Larry : Prima Donnas.
Phil : Can you keep a secret Larry? I'm probably leaving PBH. So this will be the last time we do the Groundhog festival together.
Larry : I don't understand what's so wrong with the Groundhog festival. You know when I was in San Diego, I had to cover the swallows returning to Capistrano six years in a row.
Phil : Someday someone's gonna' see me interviewing a groundhog and think I don't have a future.
