** The tune that Mr Jorkin is whistling when he offers Scrooge a job is "The Lincolnshire Poacher" - about a poacher who enjoys unlawfully entering property and trapping game there.
** After Marley's death scene, Christmas Past calls Scrooge a "squeezing, wrenching, grasping, covetous old sinner" - exactly as Charles Dickens describes him in the novel.

* MajorityShareDictator: Scrooge and Marley obtain their wealth by offering to cover the expenses of their owner's embezzlement scandal in return for the right to buy up to 51% of the company's shares. Naturally this gives them absolute power over the day-to-day business of the company.

* CanonForeigner: The PredatoryBusiness which buys out Fezziwig is personified by Mr. Jorkin. Jorkin serves as an EvilMentor to Scrooge and Marley both, pairing them up in an ominous scene. He is later caught embezzling from his own banking house; Scrooge and Marley bail him out in return for 51% of the stock share, effectively a hostile takeover.
** Mr. Jorkin is adapted from Mr. Jorkins, a character from Literature/DavidCopperfield.
