Key facts about A Christmas Carol:

- He refuses an invitation to his nephew Fred's Christmas party and will not give money to the charity collectors.

- At home he is visited by the ghost of his old business partner, Marley.

- The Ghost of Christmas Past wakes Scrooge and shows him moments from his childhood, his apprenticeship and his failed engagement.

- The Ghost of Christmas Present takes him to the Cratchit's home, where he is saddened by the ill, but kind, Tiny Tim. He is also shown how Fred celebrates Christmas with friends and how others celebrate Christmas together.

- The final ghost is the Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come who terrifies Scrooge with visions of his death.

- Scrooge awakes on Christmas Day and is delighted to find he has the chance to repent of his miserly ways. He buys a turkey for the Cratchits and attends his nephew's party.

- Thank you, Mr. Scrooge.

- Christmas. What a nuisance. Humbug.

- You…

- Who is there?

- In life I was your partner, Jacob Marley, but now I wear these chains. I’ve come to tell you that you’re doomed.

- Can’t I do anything to save myself?

- You will be visited by three spirits.

- Wake up, Scrooge. I am the ghost of Christmas Past and I’m here to show you what has been, so come on.

- Here you are as a young boy.

- Here you are as an overly ambitious youth.

- Here you are as a young man.

- Here you met the love of your life.

- Oh, Belle.

- Here you are with your money, the new love of your life.

- Please, show me no more, Spirit.

- Whatever you say.

- Wake up, and know me better, man.

- You are a giant.

- That is easily remedied. Now come, let us see Christmas.

- See, how joyful they are. And all because of it’s Christmas.

- Here is the home of your overworked employee, Bob Cratchit.

- Why are they happy when they have so little?

- Because they have something you do not. Love and joy.

- But what about Tiny Tim? What will happen to him?

- Don’t ask me. Ask the next guy.

- Spirit where are you?

- Are, are you the ghost of Christmas Future?

- Why? Why are we here?

- Tiny Tim dies?

- I die? Oh, Spirit, please tell me that these things can be changed. Give me a second chance.

- What? I’m back and it’s Christmas morning. The spirits have given me a second chance. I’m going to go out and live my life like a good man.  

- Oh, what a beautiful day.

- Here gents, have some money and a Merry Christmas.

- Santa. Will Bob Cratchit be surprised!

- Mr. Scrooge?

- Merry Christmas, Bob. Have a turkey. I’m also making you my partner.

- Oh, thank you, Mr. Scrooge.

- Oh, don’t mention it, but I must be off to my nephew’s for dinner. Goodbye, and have a Merry Christmas, everyone.
