** In the [[Film/AChristmasCarol1984 George C. Scott movie]], the spirit of Yet to Come doesn't speak, but every time it "responds" to Scrooge, a weird metallic wail is heard in the background.

* CruelToBeKind: The Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come shows Scrooge an incredibly disturbing future. However, this is in the efforts to avoid that future.

It's not true that Scrooge doesn't say "Bah, humbug!" in the book. The line is "'Bah!,' said Scrooge. 'Humbug!'"
* {{Catchphrase}}: Scrooge's iconic "Humbug!" Sometimes prefaced with "Bah!" (Note that he [[BeamMeUpScotty never actually says "Bah, humbug!"]], at least in the original book.)
