parse_url($url, PHP_URL_PATH) should return "/hey/you" and then str_replace can be used to replace the "\" with "". Once you have the text version of the filename, appending the extension and writing out should be ok. Don't forget to give the full path before writing, including the complete directory structure:

$url = ""
$filestr = str_replace( "/", "", parse_url($url, PHP_URL_PATH));

Yes, I apologize if was unclear.  
The problem I am having is    Grabbing The actual URL of the page.
As the $url in not known for it is dynamic.        

Something like  
$url = $_GET["_$request"];  .
How do I dynamically set the $url

Thank you.   

If you print out the contents of _GET with print_r, you should see a field that contains the full URL.

Off the top of my head, $_SERVER['QUERY_STRING'] might contain what you need. You can print it out to see. Sorry, I'm not near a web server at the moment to test it out right now.
