Ebenezer Scrooge [ edit ]
What do you want with me?
Let me hear one word out of you, Cratchit, and you can keep Christmas by losing your situation! There is nothing on this earth more terrifying to me than a life doomed to poverty.
I've, uh....come to dinner. (pause) If you'll have me.
Jacob Marley [ edit ]
You will be haunted by three spirits.
Expect the first tomorrow when the bell tolls one. Look to see me no more.
The Ghost of Christmas Past [ edit ]
I am the Ghost of Christmas Past. Rise and walk with me.
The Ghost of Christmas Present [ edit ]
You have never seen the likes of me before?
Peace on Earth. Good will to all men. This boy is Ignorance. This girl is Want. Beware them both.
Dialogue [ edit ]
Tiny Tim: God bless us. Every one.
Ebenezer Scrooge: Spirit! Hear Me! I'm not the man I was!
Ebenezer Scrooge: Haunt me no longer!
About A Christmas Carol (2009 film) [ edit ]
Well yeah, my ambition was to stay true to the original piece, and I think horror is a dangerous word to use these days because it conjures up images of horror movies.
But I think what you're responding to is very classic dramatic storytelling devices like suspense and tension. And I think that to really make the story of redemption work, for Scrooge to actually see the light, he has to be plunged into the darkness.
