'''Scrooge:''' Remember what?\\
'''Cratchit:''' Whose birthday we're celebrating.\\
'''Scrooge:''' Well... don't get me wrong. The story of Christmas, in its simplicity, is a good thing, I'll buy that. It's just that we know a good thing when we see it.\\
'''Cratchit:''' But don't you realize? Christmas has a significance, a meaning...\\
'''Scrooge:''' A sales curve. Wake up, Cratchit, it's later than you think.\\
'''Cratchit:''' I know, Mr. Scrooge. I know.

** Played straight at the end of his review of ''The Christmas Tree''. He goes through his house having his staff, his family, and himself all explain that the ''real'' point of Christmas is to have a joyful time giving, spending time with the people you love, and just taking a step back to remember that you aren't the center of the universe all the time. Comically subverted in the end when his parents, who both gave their own heartfelt monoluges, question who the hell the Critic even was.
