*Ghostly Music plays under. Colors change. Marley's spotlight has gone out and now reappears, with Marley in it, standing next to the bed and the sleeping Scrooge.*
Marley tosses his hand in the air and a flame shoots from it, magically, into the air.
"I'll have have a clock strike one and, when he awakes expecting my second messenger, there will be no one...nothing. Then i'll have the bell strike twelve. And then one again..and then nothing... Nothing (Laughs) Nothing will... astonish him. I think it will work.
( The bell tolls one. Scrooge leaps awake.)
Midnight!How can this be? I'm Sleeping Backwards
(the bell tolls midnight.)
*And it kept ringing and stopping and he was just looking around the room*
One!One! This is it;time!(looks about the room)Nothing!
Then Scrooge made a run for the door
*lights and thunder again: more music. Marley is of a sudden gone*
Scrooge walks in a room. there is turkeys, geese, game, poultry, brawn and basically allot of food.
*scrooge is surprised and confused*
*then the Ghost of Christmas appear*
Hi Scrooge, I am the Ghost of Christmas!...
A tremendous family to provide for!(Present stand) Spirit, conduct me where you will. I went forth last night on compulsion, and learnt a lesson which is working now. Tonight, if you have aught to teach me, let me profit by it.
I don't think I have. I'm afraid I've not. Have you had many brothers, Spirit?
You have never walked forth with younger members of my family: my elder brothers born on Christmas past.
