* In any version, when Scrooge's fiancee leaves him after seeing values money more than he values her. Especially in the 1999 Patrick Stewart version and 2004 musical, when old Scrooge is shouting at his younger self to go after her. It's even sadder when you realize that he's spent ''years'' regretting the choice of letting her go.

* While it's also [[NightmareFuel horrifying]], the 2009 version's portrayal of [[HumanoidAbomination Ignorance and Want]] shows that despite their monstrous appearance, they too are tragic figures, being born of mankind's worst qualities (unwillingness to learn and selfish desire) and shows that if people like Scrooge don't change their ways, children like Ignorance and Want will be driven to lives of crime and madness in their adulthoods.

* The final vision of the past that the Ghost of Christmas Past shows Scrooge - the thing that finally breaks him, in fact - is the night Jacob Marley died. Rather than see himself, or Marley, he learns the fate of Belle, his former fiance. She is happily married to a good man and surrounded by loving children, including a beautiful teenage daughter that is the spitting image of her mother. What Scrooge feels upon seeing a life that could have been his...well, Dickens himself puts it best:

-->''The air was filled with phantoms, wandering hither and thither in restless haste, and moaning as they went. Every one of them wore chains like Marley's Ghost...Many had been personally known to Scrooge in their lives. He had been quite familiar with one old ghost, in a white waistcoat, with a monstrous iron safe attached to its ankle, who cried piteously at being unable to assist a wretched woman with an infant, whom it saw below, upon a door-step. The misery with them all was, clearly, that they sought to interfere, for good, in human matters, and had lost the power for ever.''

** WordOfGod has it that this is the ''same'' man in a white waistcoat who, [[CanonWelding in another Dickens tale]], denies food or help to Literature/OliverTwist.

* The passage of the spirits outside after Marley's ghost departs is usually skipped in adaptations, but it includes a tearjerking moment:
-->''The air was filled with phantoms, wandering hither and thither in restless haste, and moaning as they went. Every one of them wore chains like Marley's Ghost; some few (they might be guilty governments) were linked together; none were free. Many had been personally known to Scrooge in their lives.
