* UndisclosedFunds: When Scrooge encounters the Portly Gentleman on Christmas Day, he pledges a contribution to his charity by whispering an amount in his ear. We readers don't know how much he just donated, but it's sizable enough that the man is dumbfounded.

* InformedAttribute: Scrooge considers his nephew Fred to be "poor"; in reality Fred, while not wealthy lives a comfortable middle-class life and makes at least enough to afford a live-in housemaid. This shows us how stingy Scrooge is.

* TheGrovel: In the Patrick Stewart version, where Scrooge takes Christmas dinner with his nephew's family. It's clear that he knows his treatment of Fred has soured his reputation with Fred's wife, so the first thing he does after Fred welcomes him is apologize.
-->'''Scrooge:''' And you, my dear. Can you...forgive a...stupid old man who doesn't want to be left out in the cold anymore? Will you take me in?
-->'''Emily:''' ''*pauses, then smiles*'' Merry Christmas, uncle.

* RousseauWasRight: Scrooge was not born a horrible greedy person. It was his past experiences of losing a girlfriend, a sister, a partner, and being sent from his family to boarding school on Christmas Day help made him who he is.
