Phil was the first character to fall victim in the second Ghostface killing spree.
Phil and his girlfriend, Maureen decided to watch Stab. As the couple enters the theatre, a majority of the audience is wearing Ghostface masks. Phil also wears one. Maureen displays, that she is not to be fond of the film. Phil heads to the bathroom, during the few minutes of the film. As he enters, he notices two people in Ghostface costumes, using the urinals. Phil gets in the stall, as he hears a noise that interests him. Once he puts his ear against the stall, he is stabbed in the ear by Mickey Altieri. He slumps to the floor. Mickey heads out of the bathroom wearing Phil's jacket. Ghostface then stabs Maureen more than once, killing her.
Afterwards Gale Weathers and Dewey Riley notice the name of Stevens and realise. it represents the first victim of the Woodsboro Murders, Steven Orth. They realise, the representation of the murder spree is being replicated with these murders.
