** Marley's deathly, occasionally vaguely amused reverie is both eerie, and at times, hilarious.

Added DiffLines:

* Scrooge's irritability is sometimes quite comical, particularly the sullen scowl with which he meets his jolly nephew.

** He then draws up a chair... and sits down in the open space next to it.


* When the Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come reveals that it looks like the Grim Reaper, Scrooge lets out very long, loud scream and falls into his own grave, while the ghost just stands there. It's unintentionally hilarious, mainly due to the way it's shot.

Added DiffLines:

'''Ghost"''' Thank you.

Added DiffLines:

* The stage version adds more snark from Marley when Scrooge is confronted with his own enormous chain, saying it makes his look like a watch chain.

Added DiffLines:

* The Ghost of Christmas Present goes full-on SarcasmMode as they leave the Cratchits, asking Scrooge if he agrees on how nauseating the experience was.

Added DiffLines:

* Scrooge's first song is called "I Hate People," detailing him badmouthing everyone around him while propping himself up. The main portion also sounds a bit like the Jetsons theme song.

'''Ghost''': I am the spirit whose coming was foretold to you.\\
'''Scrooge''': ...You don't look like a ghost.\\
'''Ghost''': Thank you.

* Scrooge comes to Bob Cratchit's house dressed as Santa and tells Emily that she can use the goose that she's just dropped as stuffing for the turkey that he's brought, and it's the most enormous turkey in any version.

* During the Christmas Present scene, Scrooge has some of the milk of human kindness and becomes giddy. When Fred and the guests start playing games, though, it wears off and he starts insulting them, causing the Ghost to comment he could use some more.
