-->''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.

It's even sadder when you realize that he's spent ''years'' regretting the choice of letting her go.

* 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.

* 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.

* In the 1951 film ''Scrooge'', as Scrooge goes back to his childhood in the deserted school, his sister comes in and he forgets and tries to embrace her. Alastair Sim was brilliant. That one terrible, overjoyed cry -- "''Fan!''" and she runs right through him. Oh my ''God''.

-->"And now Scrooge looked on more attentively than ever, when the master of the house, having his daughter leaning fondly on him, sat down with her and her mother at his own fireside; and when he thought that such another creature, quite as graceful and as full of promise, might have called him father, and been a spring-time in the haggard winter of his life, his sight grew very dim indeed."
