Heartwarming / A Christmas Carol (2009)

  • Scrooge arrives at the home of his nephew, Fred (the son of his deceased sister), post-reform and humbly requests to join them for dinner if he's still welcome. Fred, his wife and their guests are obviously rather surprised that Scrooge came at all (especially since he came right in the middle of their game of twenty questions where they were making fun of him, which Scrooge did overhear), stare in stunned silence for a few seconds before all rejoicing at once and welcoming him with open arms.
  • Scrooge approaching the charity worker on Christmas Day to offer a generous donation, and also asking forgiveness for his behavior the previous night.
