Crossover with "Groundhog Day"

Phil Connors awoke with a start in the second floor bedroom of the Old Lincoln School. Bernard Herrman's score to "Vertigo" was playing on his tinny clock radio.

"Shit," Phil thought. "Another hour has passed."

Phil had lost count of how many times this cycle had played itself out. Macbeth gets prophecy, Macbeth talks to wife, Macbeth kills king, Macbeth goes to witch orgy, Macbeth kills Banquo, Macbeth goes to banquet. It kept happening over and over and over again.

Phil walked over to the piano and played a ragtime jazz number. MacDuff entered.

"Phil? Phil Connors? How are you, you old so-and-so?"

Phil went through the motions of having the same conversation with MacDuff he had every hour.

"If I go downstairs," Phil thought, "Hecate's going to tell me that well story again. I can't deal with this. I just can't deal."

Instead Phil handed MacDuff a knife. "Kill me," said Phil. "Please kill me."

MacDuff obliged. Phil felt the life slip out of him.
