RISE AND SHINE:  Just stumbled across a post about one scene in Groundhog Day where Phil is at the hospital checking on the old man and there, in the background, is the tree-climbing kid -- with a broken leg.  I think this is evidence of my theory that Phil is only set free once he does the right things -- but the right thing isn't everything; yes, he saves the kid on the Last Day, but he's striving to reach the right balance.  Ultimately he didn't -- and couldn't -- save the Old Man, but he needed to -- and ultimately did -- keep the kid from breaking a leg.
