Intended to ride on Murray's earlier success in ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}}'', ''Scrooged'' contains many references to the earlier (if largely unrelated) film; one of the taglines was, "Bill Murray is back amongst the ghosts, only this time it's three on one."

** It's also debatable whether Claire really intended to end the relationship. She proposes "taking a break", which ''could'' be an attempt to let him down gently, or she could have been sincere. The latter option is plausible because she just about drops everything to come see Frank after he calls her, despite it being well over a decade since they spoke. Even when Frank comes to her shelter, demands her to go with him, and insults her fellow volunteers for no real reason, Claire doesn't tell him to take a hike; she implores him to give her just a little time to finish working. Frank leaves in a huff. Maybe the reason they spent so long separated was because Frank just never bothered reaching out to her again after the Frisbee fiasco.

This is because he'd already [[HearMeTheMoney tested the statuette with his thumbnail]] and determined it was worthless.

* StealthPun: When Frank is hallucinating prior to the arrival of the first ghost, he freaks out at the sight of his drink. Specifically, because there is an eyeball in his highball.
