How does Cratchit manage to bare so many children and still be happy?
I would say that he gets pleasure of his family. Listen and watch. You might actually learn something.
How did Tiny Tim behave?
Good as always. He told me that he hoped people saw him in church, because he was cripple, and it would be pleasant to them to remember upon Christmas Day, who made lame beggars walk and blind men see. He will grow to be stronger and hearty, though he does think a lot.
I see a vacant seat and a crutch without an owner, carefully preserved. If these shadows remained unaltered by the future, the child will die.
No kind spirit! Say he will be spared.
I'll drink to his health for your sake and the day's, but not for his sake... a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you, Mr. Scrooge.
I would like to toast Mr. Scrooge! I should like to drink to the health of the man who employs me and allows me to earn my living.
These are the Cratchits, Mr. Scrooge. They are not highly special but they are happy and contented.
I think it's time for us to take our leave. I feel my heart that it is... that I must think on that which I have seen here...
