Storyboard Text

  • Jacob Marley
  • Scrooge and Marley
  • Jacob Marley is dead: "Old Marley was as dead as a door-nail."
  • "A merry Christmas, uncle! God save you!"
  • Scrooge and Marley
  • Scrooge and Marley owned a shop, and since Marley's death, Scrooge still kept his name on the sign. Marley was his only close friend and after his death, Scrooge became a much colder man than he was before. 
  • "I wish to be left alone!"
  • "Oh!  But he was a tight-fisted hand at the grind- stone, Scrooge! a squeezing, wrenching, grasping, scraping, clutching, covetous, old sinner! Hard and sharp as flint, from which no steel had ever struck out generous fire; secret, and self-contained, and solitary as an oyster. "
  • Scrooge's nephew wishes Scrooge a merry Christmas, but Scrooge answers him with a disdainful "Bah! Humbug!" He believes Christmas is the same as any day of the year, a day in which one must still pay bills. His nephew, Fred, thinks of Christmas as a "kind, forgiving, charitable, pleasant time." He invites Scrooge to dine with him tomorrow, but his uncle rejects the offer.
  • " Bah!" said Scrooge, "Humbug!"
  • "Two portly gentlemen enter and ask Scrooge for charity for the poor. Scrooge believes that prisons and workhouses are sufficient, and he dismisses them.
  • "You want to remain anonymous?"
  • Scrooge sees the dead Marley's face in the knocker of his door until it turns back into a knocker: "having his key in the lock of the door, saw in the knocker, without its undergoing any intermediate process of change - not a knocker, but Marley's face.
