Then shortly after, a guest gets stuck on a simile game.
Fred: Quick as?
Guest: [Doesn't answer]
Scrooge: A wink you idiot!
Christmas Present: Shhh, Ebenezer!
Scrooge: You said they can neither see nor hear us!
Christmas Present: That's quite true. *laughs* Oh, yes, I'm sorry. Even I forget the regulations.
And right after, one answer is "Tight as your Uncle Scrooge's purse strings."
The Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come "speaks" like a rusty iron gate. Scrooge comments "You're devilish hard to have a conversation with."
Old Joe's response to Mrs. Dilber's assertion that he's "hardened" in Christmas Yet to Come: "I'm always kind to the ladies. That's how I ruined meself."
When Scrooge recruits the boy to buy the turkey on Christmas Day, the poulterer warns him it better not be a prank.
Bob Cratchit is utterly frantic when he comes into work late, with the soundtrack emphasizing this as he attempts to sneak in. Scrooge pretends to chew him out, only to tell him "I'm going to ...double your salary!"
Once you see this, you might never be afraid of The Ghost Of Christmas Yet To Come ever again.
