Bob Cratchit: Mr. Scrooge?
Ebenezer Scrooge: I'm busy.
Bob Cratchit: Well, it's about Mr. Marley, sir! He's dying!
Ebenezer Scrooge: Well, what do you want me to do about it? If he's dying, he's dying.

Jacob Marley: Look to see me no more. But look here, that you may remember for your own sake what has passed between us!
Ebenezer Scrooge: Why do they lament?
Jacob Marley: They seek to interfere for good in human matters, and have lost their power forever.

Mr. Jorkin: You better watch these two, you know. They'd skin Old Scratch alive and he'd never know they done it.
Ebenezer Scrooge: Mr.Marley and myself are prepared to make good out of our own private resources the sum of money appropriated by Mr. Jorkin. But in return, we wish to be allowed the option of buying up further shares in the company until we have reached 51% of the total.
Mr. Jorkin: In short, gentlemen, if you wish to save the fair name of the company, they become the company!
