Storyboard Text

  • Theme
  • "If he be like to die, he had better do it, and decrease the surplus population
  • Symbolism
  • "...he seized the extinguisher-cap and by a sudden action pressed it down upon its head."
  • Internal Conflict
  • "Bah Humbug!"
  • In this scene, the Ghost of Christmas Past is repeating Scrooge's words from earlier in the story . He is trying to show Scrooge how hurtful his words are : he is telling Scrooge that he shouldn't say things about people when he hasn't walked a mile in their shoes.
  • Internal Conflict
  • "At one of these a lonely boy was reading near a feeble fire ; and Scrooge sat down upon a form , and wept to see his poor forgotten self as he had used to be."
  • In this scene, Scrooge is angry at the Ghost Of Christmas Present because she shows him things from his past that he did not want to see. He uses his night cap to try and extinguish the fire burning on her head. The fire represents the light of Scrooge's past, and when Scrooge tries to rid himself of the light, he cant, and that shows that he can't get rid of the regret of his past even if he tries.
  • Indirect Characterization
  • I could go get the coalbox for my clerk...but I am too lazy.
  • I'm oh so cold!
  • Scrooge is salty that everyone is happy. He thinks that people don't deserve to be happy, especially poor people. Scrooge must overcome his fear of the Christmas spirit and accept that people will be merry.
  • Theme
  • Scrooge remembers the sadness he went through when he was left at school for Christmas in his childhood. This is an example of one of the memories that made Scrooge the way he is. Part of the reason why he hates Christmas is because he never had a good Christmas experience (ex : getting left at school).
  • When the Clerk has a small fire, Scrooge will not get him more coal from his coalbox. This shows that Scrooge is selfish and mean. He is too lazy to get the Clerk more coal, and he would rather have the Clerk freeze then get up and get more coal.
  • The Ghost Of Christmas Past takes Scrooge to see Belle and her husband. Scrooge sees this, and realizes that he should've never mistreated Belle ; he sees what he could've had with her and he regrets not being nicer. This makes Scrooge sad and teaches him that you have to take a chance when you have it (which is the theme).
