  499. 106
  500. 00:07:00,877 --> 00:07:04,545
  501. The best-selling bloody author in the
  502. history of English bloody literature.
  503.  
  504. 107
  505. 00:07:04,547 --> 00:07:08,315
  506. Three of his books you have published
  507. in the last year and a half. Three!
  508.  
  509. 108
  510. 00:07:08,317 --> 00:07:10,183
  511. So where's the money?
  512.  
  513. 109
  514. 00:07:10,185 --> 00:07:13,654
  515. Mr. Forster, like you, we are as
  516. puzzled as the Egyptians in their fog.
  517.  
  518. 110
  519. 00:07:13,656 --> 00:07:15,723
  520. - (Forster) How's that?
  521. - Martin Chuzzlewit.
  522.  
  523. 111
  524. 00:07:15,725 --> 00:07:19,459
  525. A masterpiece of the
  526. picaresque genre, and yet...
  527.  
  528. 112
  529. 00:07:19,461 --> 00:07:21,796
  530. Barnaby Rudge. A fine book.
  531. An important subject.
  532.  
  533. 113
  534. 00:07:21,798 --> 00:07:23,764
  535. But, alas...
  536.  
  537. 114
  538. 00:07:23,766 --> 00:07:26,233
  539. And the travel book,
  540. American Notes.
  541.  
  542. 115
  543. 00:07:26,235 --> 00:07:28,668
  544. Perhaps a little too candid
  545. for our American cousins.
  546.  
  547. 116
  548. 00:07:28,670 --> 00:07:31,171
  549. No joke. I heard they were burning
  550. copies of it in the streets.
  551.  
  552. 117
  553. 00:07:31,173 --> 00:07:32,406
  554. (object slams
  555. on table)
  556.  
  557. 118
  558. 00:07:32,408 --> 00:07:35,308
  559. Well, they're mad as snakes,
  560. the Yanks.
  561.  
  562. 119
  563. 00:07:35,310 --> 00:07:38,613
  564. But what about this 50 pound a month
  565. you're withholding from his royalties?
  566.  
  567. 120
  568. 00:07:38,615 --> 00:07:40,581
  569. What is the explanation
  570. for that?
  571.  
  572. 121
  573. 00:07:40,583 --> 00:07:43,885
  574. You may remember that when Mr. Dickens
  575. approached us about the tour to America,
  576.  
  577. 122
  578. 00:07:43,887 --> 00:07:46,521
  579. we were pleased to provide him
  580. with an interest-free loan.
  581.  
  582. 123
  583. 00:07:46,523 --> 00:07:49,490
  584. With the provision that, in
  585. the unlikely case of profits
  586.  
  587. 124
  588. 00:07:49,492 --> 00:07:51,858
  589. being inadequate
  590. to certain repayments...
  591.  
  592. 125
  593. 00:07:51,860 --> 00:07:55,396
  594. What? So he's had a couple of flops?
  595. Well, who hasn't? Huh?
  596.  
  597. 126
  598. 00:07:55,398 --> 00:07:57,264
  599. Your publishing house
  600. wouldn't exist without this man.
  601.  
  602. 127
  603. 00:07:57,266 --> 00:07:59,834
  604. What about an advance?
  605.  
  606. 128
  607. 00:07:59,836 --> 00:08:02,736
  608. - On?
  609. - A new book.
  610.  
  611. 129
  612. 00:08:02,738 --> 00:08:04,440
  613. You have a new book
  614. in mind?
  615.  
  616. 130
  617. 00:08:06,809 --> 00:08:09,343
  618. Yes.
  619. Of course he does.
  620.  
  621. 131
  622. 00:08:09,345 --> 00:08:12,647
  623. Well, in that case, I mean we'd
  624. obviously love to consider it.
  625.  
  626. 132
  627. 00:08:12,649 --> 00:08:15,451
  628. - Consider?
  629. - That is to say, if we like it.
  630.  
  631. 133
  632. 00:08:16,685 --> 00:08:19,322
  633. - If?
  634. - I'm sure that we will.
  635.  
  636. 134
  637. 00:08:21,790 --> 00:08:23,591
  638. Gentlemen,
  639. I bid you good day.
  640.  
  641. 135
  642. 00:08:23,593 --> 00:08:27,228
  643. Mr. Forster, please, we had no
  644. intention of causing offense.
  645.  
  646. 136
  647. 00:08:27,230 --> 00:08:28,663
  648. Well,
  649. he's in a fettle now.
  650.  
  651. 137
  652. 00:08:28,665 --> 00:08:30,865
  653. I'll give him a day
  654. to calm down.
  655.  
  656. 138
  657. 00:08:30,867 --> 00:08:33,700
  658. And then...
  659. It's most awkward.
  660.  
  661. 139
  662. 00:08:33,702 --> 00:08:36,337
  663. He was in last week,
  664.  
  665. 140
  666. 00:08:36,339 --> 00:08:38,238
  667. in some difficulty.
  668.  
  669. 141
  670. 00:08:38,240 --> 00:08:39,574
  671. Again.
  672.  
  673. 142
  674. 00:08:39,576 --> 00:08:41,876
  675. No, that's not possible.
  676. He's in the countryside.
  677.  
  678. 143
  679. 00:08:41,878 --> 00:08:44,214
  680. He's under strict
  681. instructions to remain there.
  682.  
  683. 144
  684. 00:08:46,515 --> 00:08:47,750
  685. What is it this time?
  686.  
  687. 145
  688. 00:08:58,360 --> 00:09:00,962
  689. "I need money immediately or
  690. productive of fatal consequences,
  691.  
  692. 146
  693. 00:09:00,964 --> 00:09:03,797
  694. I beseech you
  695. to do the needful..."
  696.  
  697. 147
  698. 00:09:03,799 --> 00:09:07,803
  699. He's been offering Mr. Dickens's
  700. autographs for sale in the newspapers.
  701.  
  702. 148
  703. 00:09:13,308 --> 00:09:16,477
  704. - How much did you give him?
  705. - Forty-five, all told.
  706.  
  707. 149
  708. 00:09:16,479 --> 00:09:17,479
  709. Forty-five?
  710.  
  711. 150
  712. 00:09:19,749 --> 00:09:23,316
  713. Well,
  714. I'll pay it all back.
  715.  
  716. 151
  717. 00:09:23,318 --> 00:09:25,521
  718. But not a word of this
  719. to Charles, do you hear?
  720.  
  721. 152
  722. 00:09:32,294 --> 00:09:33,963
  723. (men chattering, laughing)
  724.  
  725. 153
  726. 00:09:35,498 --> 00:09:38,302
  727. - (chattering, laughing continue)
  728. - (exhales)
  729.  
  730. 154
  731. 00:09:39,701 --> 00:09:41,701
  732. "What's the secret?"
  733. they say.
  734.  
  735. 155
  736. 00:09:41,703 --> 00:09:43,206
  737. There is no secret.
  738. I sit down...
  739.  
  740. 156
  741. 00:09:45,942 --> 00:09:49,910
  742. - Charles. What are you doing here?
  743. - I'm hiding from Thackeray.
  744.  
  745. 157
  746. 00:09:49,912 --> 00:09:52,345
  747. They absolutely
  748. come pouring out of me.
  749.  
  750. 158
  751. 00:09:52,347 --> 00:09:54,781
  752. He'll no doubt want to commiserate
  753. me on my Chuzzlewit reviews,
  754.  
  755. 159
  756. 00:09:54,783 --> 00:09:56,783
  757. which he will quote
  758. by heart.
  759.  
  760. 160
  761. 00:09:56,785 --> 00:09:58,287
  762. Come on.
  763.  
  764. 161
  765. 00:10:08,664 --> 00:10:12,699
  766. (sighs) I am clammin' for some scran.
  767. Where's Robertson?
  768.  
  769. 162
  770. 00:10:12,701 --> 00:10:14,602
  771. Why do we come here,
  772. hmm?
  773.  
  774. 163
  775. 00:10:14,604 --> 00:10:18,339
  776. The service is terrible. The food is
  777. inedible. The fees keep going up.
  778.  
  779. 164
  780. 00:10:18,341 --> 00:10:20,344
  781. It's full of...
  782.  
  783. 165
  784. 00:10:21,844 --> 00:10:24,411
  785. (groans)
  786.  
  787. 166
  788. 00:10:24,413 --> 00:10:25,945
  789. Gentlemen.
  790.  
  791. 167
  792. 00:10:25,947 --> 00:10:27,714
  793. You're not Robertson.
  794.  
  795. 168
  796. 00:10:27,716 --> 00:10:29,586
  797. The name is Marley, sir.
  798.  
  799. 169
  800. 00:10:30,886 --> 00:10:33,753
  801. - Marley? Marley with an "E"?
  802. - Yes, sir.
  803.  
  804. 170
  805. 00:10:33,755 --> 00:10:35,823
  806. Hmm.
  807.  
  808. 171
  809. 00:10:35,825 --> 00:10:38,658
  810. Uh, oh, don't worry.
  811. He collects names.
  812.  
  813. 172
  814. 00:10:38,660 --> 00:10:40,895
  815. We'll have some oysters
  816. and a bottle of champagne.
  817.  
  818. 173
  819. 00:10:40,897 --> 00:10:42,466
  820. Very good, sir.
  821.  
  822. 174
  823. 00:10:44,000 --> 00:10:46,633
  824. - Champagne?
  825. - We're celebrating.
  826.  
  827. 175
  828. 00:10:46,635 --> 00:10:49,369
  829. - Celebrating?
  830. - Hello, Thackeray. (sighs)
  831.  
  832. 176
  833. 00:10:49,371 --> 00:10:51,571
  834. - How are you?
  835. - Tolerable.
  836.  
  837. 177
  838. 00:10:51,573 --> 00:10:53,074
  839. I thank ye.
  840.  
  841. 178
  842. 00:10:53,076 --> 00:10:55,776
  843. Charles, I must say I am relieved
  844. to see you out and about.
  845.  
  846. 179
  847. 00:10:55,778 --> 00:10:57,777
  848. Relieved?
  849.  
  850. 180
  851. 00:10:57,779 --> 00:11:00,781
  852. You know, after those vile things
  853. they wrote about Chuzzlewit.
  854.  
  855. 181
  856. 00:11:00,783 --> 00:11:03,584
  857. I won't even
  858. call them reviews.
  859.  
  860. 182
  861. 00:11:03,586 --> 00:11:05,685
  862. - No matter. I never read them.
  863. - Quite right.
  864.  
  865. 183
  866. 00:11:05,687 --> 00:11:08,457
  867. Scandalous what one is
  868. allowed to print nowadays.
  869.  
  870. 184
  871. 00:11:16,532 --> 00:11:18,531
  872. Go on.
  873. What did they say?
  874.  
  875. 185
  876. 00:11:18,533 --> 00:11:21,901
  877. "Dull, vapid, and vulgar.
  878.  
  879. 186
  880. 00:11:21,903 --> 00:11:26,806
  881. Not a single character capable of
  882. exciting the reader's sympathies."
  883.  
  884. 187
  885. 00:11:26,808 --> 00:11:29,776
  886. I certainly didn't think
  887. it was vulgar.
  888.  
  889. 188
  890. 00:11:29,778 --> 00:11:32,079
  891. Oh, look.
  892. There's Macready.
  893.  
  894. 189
  895. 00:11:32,081 --> 00:11:35,583
  896. Poor thing. His Macbeth was
  897. absolutely shredded in the Times.
  898.  
  899. 190
  900. 00:11:35,585 --> 00:11:37,921
  901. I must go and give him
  902. my condolences.
  903.  
  904. 191
  905. 00:11:41,657 --> 00:11:43,690
  906. I'm sick of London.
  907.  
  908. 192
  909. 00:11:43,692 --> 00:11:45,425
  910. It's overcrowded,
  911. overpriced...
  912.  
  913. 193
  914. 00:11:45,427 --> 00:11:47,795
  915. - You love this town.
  916. - No place for a man without money.
  917.  
  918. 194
  919. 00:11:47,797 --> 00:11:49,930
  920. Not to mention
  921. the bloody fog.
  922.  
  923. 195
  924. 00:11:49,932 --> 00:11:52,836
  925. But it's your inspiration, your
  926. what-do-you-call-it... your magic lamp.
  927.  
  928. 196
  929. 00:11:54,770 --> 00:11:57,841
  930. (muttering, grunting)
  931.  
  932. 197
  933. 00:11:59,174 --> 00:12:01,441
  934. I tell you, Forster,
  935. my lamp's gone out.
  936.  
  937. 198
  938. 00:12:01,443 --> 00:12:03,511
  939. I've run out of ideas.
  940.  
  941. 199
  942. 00:12:03,513 --> 00:12:05,045
  943. - (Marley grunting)
  944. - I feel old.
  945.  
  946. 200
  947. 00:12:05,047 --> 00:12:07,515
  948. - (cork pops)
  949. - (Marley exhales)
  950.  
  951. 201
  952. 00:12:07,517 --> 00:12:08,951
  953. Old?
  954. You're a puppy.
  955.  
  956. 202
  957. 00:12:11,052 --> 00:12:13,820
  958. You're exhausted, that's all.
  959. Too many speeches.
  960.  
  961. 203
  962. 00:12:13,822 --> 00:12:16,456
  963. I've got another one tomorrow
  964. for the Children's Refuge.
  965.  
  966. 204
  967. 00:12:16,458 --> 00:12:18,592
  968. Well, you have to learn
  969. to say no.
  970.  
  971. 205
  972. 00:12:18,594 --> 00:12:22,162
  973. How can I say no if I can be useful, if
  974. I can lighten the burden of another?
  975.  
  976. 206
  977. 00:12:22,164 --> 00:12:25,031
  978. Well, you have to, what with your
  979. new commission to think about.
  980.  
  981. 207
  982. 00:12:25,033 --> 00:12:27,801
  983. Forster, I just told you that...
  984. Sorry. New commission?
  985.  
  986. 208
  987. 00:12:27,803 --> 00:12:30,905
  988. It's from Chapman and Hall,
  989. for your new book.
  990.  
  991. 209
  992. 00:12:30,907 --> 00:12:33,473
  993. I've told them you'll have the first
  994. chapter done by the end of the year.
  995.  
  996. 210
  997. 00:12:33,475 --> 00:12:36,109
  998. You like a deadline.
  999.  
  1000. 211
  1001. 00:12:36,111 --> 00:12:38,881
  1002. - Do you mind telling me what it's about?
  1003. - I'll leave that up to you.
  1004.  
  1005. 212
  1006. 00:12:45,053 --> 00:12:47,456
  1007. - (footsteps)
  1008. - (woman laughing, faint)
  1009.  
  1010. 213
  1011. 00:13:13,048 --> 00:13:15,584
  1012. (woman hooting loudly)
  1013.  
  1014. 214
  1015. 00:13:17,220 --> 00:13:19,623
  1016. (hooting)
  1017.  
  1018. 215
  1019. 00:13:25,861 --> 00:13:28,063
  1020. (hooting)
  1021.  
  1022. 216
  1023. 00:13:31,567 --> 00:13:34,734
  1024. (woman) And on Christmas
  1025. Eve, they say,
  1026.  
  1027. 217
  1028. 00:13:34,736 --> 00:13:36,871
  1029. the fairy mounds open wide
  1030.  
  1031. 218
  1032. 00:13:36,873 --> 00:13:39,839
  1033. and the fire spirits
  1034. pour into the night.
  1035.  
  1036. 219
  1037. 00:13:39,841 --> 00:13:42,675
  1038. And then
  1039. the Lord of the Dead
  1040.  
  1041. 220
  1042. 00:13:42,677 --> 00:13:45,813
  1043. leads all of the spirits
  1044. into a wild hunt.
  1045.  
  1046. 221
  1047. 00:13:45,815 --> 00:13:47,214
  1048. And he calls to them...
  1049.  
  1050. 222
  1051. 00:13:47,216 --> 00:13:49,148
  1052. (loud hooting)
  1053.  
  1054. 223
  1055. 00:13:49,150 --> 00:13:51,053
  1056. (children giggling)
  1057.  
  1058. 224
  1059. 00:14:10,907 --> 00:14:13,641
  1060. - Do we have a new housemaid?
  1061. - What?
  1062.  
  1063. 225
  1064. 00:14:13,643 --> 00:14:16,075
  1065. Uh, yes. Tara.
  1066.  
  1067. 226
  1068. 00:14:16,077 --> 00:14:19,081
  1069. She's Irish.
  1070. Charley adores her.
  1071.  
  1072. 227
  1073. 00:14:23,653 --> 00:14:24,921
  1074. What are you doing?
  1075.  
  1076. 228
  1077. 00:14:26,688 --> 00:14:29,290
  1078. - It was only a stub.
  1079. - Another hour in that.
  1080.  
  1081. 229
  1082. 00:14:29,292 --> 00:14:32,660
  1083. - Oh, really, Charles.
  1084. - If you carry on like this, we'll end up in the poor house.
  1085.  
  1086. 230
  1087. 00:14:32,662 --> 00:14:34,328
  1088. - You're funny.
  1089. - I'm not joking.
  1090.  
  1091. 231
  1092. 00:14:34,330 --> 00:14:36,095
  1093. Charles!
  1094.  
  1095. 232
  1096. 00:14:36,097 --> 00:14:39,233
  1097. You give money to every and
  1098. any beggar in the street.
  1099.  
  1100. 233
  1101. 00:14:39,235 --> 00:14:43,036
  1102. You insist we move to a bigger house
  1103. and order in all new fixtures,
  1104.  
  1105. 234
  1106. 00:14:43,038 --> 00:14:45,138
  1107. and then you complain
  1108. about a new candle.
  1109.  
  1110. 235
  1111. 00:14:45,140 --> 00:14:47,877
  1112. Debt is an ogre, Kate. If you're
  1113. not careful, it can eat you up.
  1114.  
  1115. 236
  1116. 00:14:50,779 --> 00:14:52,780
  1117. Are we in trouble?
  1118.  
  1119. 237
  1120. 00:14:52,782 --> 00:14:55,049
  1121. No, of course not.
  1122.  
  1123. 238
  1124. 00:14:55,051 --> 00:14:56,686
  1125. Then what?
  1126.  
  1127. 239
  1128. 00:14:57,653 --> 00:14:59,887
  1129. Nothing.
  1130.  
  1131. 240
  1132. 00:14:59,889 --> 00:15:03,125
  1133. I'm just sick of writing tooth
  1134. and nail for bread, that's all.
  1135.  
  1136. 241
  1137. 00:15:04,293 --> 00:15:05,993
  1138. Hmm.
  1139.  
  1140. 242
  1141. 00:15:05,995 --> 00:15:08,896
  1142. - Should've become a journalist.
  1143. - You hate the press.
  1144.  
  1145. 243
  1146. 00:15:08,898 --> 00:15:11,198
  1147. - Or a lawyer.
  1148. - "The law is an ass."
  1149.  
  1150. 244
  1151. 00:15:11,200 --> 00:15:13,267
  1152. I believe you wrote that.
  1153.  
  1154. 245
  1155. 00:15:13,269 --> 00:15:15,905
  1156. A hairdresser, then,
  1157. in the Burlington Arcade.
  1158.  
  1159. 246
  1160. 00:15:17,306 --> 00:15:19,607
  1161. Do you know what
  1162. I should have liked to be?
  1163.  
  1164. 247
  1165. 00:15:19,609 --> 00:15:21,642
  1166. An explorer,
  1167.  
  1168. 248
  1169. 00:15:21,644 --> 00:15:24,877
  1170. paddling a canoe somewhere
  1171. in the wilds of Canada
  1172.  
  1173. 249
  1174. 00:15:24,879 --> 00:15:27,714
  1175. in a pair
  1176. of buckskin breeches,
  1177.  
  1178. 250
  1179. 00:15:27,716 --> 00:15:29,782
  1180. all on my own.
  1181.  
  1182. 251
  1183. 00:15:29,784 --> 00:15:31,288
  1184. No nappies to change.
  1185.  
  1186. 252
  1187. 00:15:37,192 --> 00:15:38,727
  1188. By the way, dear,
  1189.  
  1190. 253
  1191. 00:15:39,861 --> 00:15:41,932
  1192. I-I saw the doctor today.
  1193.  
  1194. 254
  1195. 00:15:47,736 --> 00:15:49,637
  1196. Not another...
  1197. little stranger.
  1198.  
  1199. 255
  1200. 00:15:49,639 --> 00:15:51,738
  1201. Are you pleased?
  1202.  
  1203. 256
  1204. 00:15:51,740 --> 00:15:53,706
  1205. Well, of course.
  1206.  
  1207. 257
  1208. 00:15:53,708 --> 00:15:55,044
  1209. (laughs)
  1210.  
  1211. 258
  1212. 00:15:56,879 --> 00:15:58,748
  1213. - Well, that's splendid.
  1214. - Yes.
  1215.  
  1216. 259
  1217. 00:16:11,860 --> 00:16:15,764
  1218. I am a necromancer.
  1219.  
  1220. 260
  1221. 00:16:17,133 --> 00:16:18,868
  1222. Behold.
  1223.  
  1224. 261
  1225. 00:16:23,371 --> 00:16:25,307
  1226. (all gasping)
  1227.  
  1228. 262
  1229. 00:16:35,317 --> 00:16:37,751
  1230. - And now...
  1231. - (gasping)
  1232.  
  1233. 263
  1234. 00:16:37,753 --> 00:16:40,956
  1235. (man making
  1236. eerie whistling sounds)
  1237.  
  1238. 264
  1239. 00:16:44,159 --> 00:16:46,093
  1240. (gasps)
  1241.  
  1242. 265
  1243. 00:16:46,095 --> 00:16:48,898
  1244. (man hooting, cackling)
  1245.  
  1246. 266
  1247. 00:16:50,331 --> 00:16:53,099
  1248. - (moaning)
  1249. - (chuckling) Charley.
  1250.  
  1251. 267
  1252. 00:16:53,101 --> 00:16:55,969
  1253. Charley,
  1254. it's all right.
  1255.  
  1256. 268
  1257. 00:16:55,971 --> 00:16:57,905
  1258. - I'm here.
  1259. - (gasps)
  1260.  
  1261. 269
  1262. 00:16:57,907 --> 00:17:01,711
  1263. - (bell tolling)
  1264. - (hoofbeats on cobblestone)
  1265.  
  1266. 270
  1267. 00:17:13,722 --> 00:17:15,221
  1268. (rapid footsteps)
  1269.  
  1270. 271
  1271. 00:17:15,223 --> 00:17:18,191
  1272. Mistress Chickenstalker!
  1273.  
  1274. 272
  1275. 00:17:18,193 --> 00:17:20,728
  1276. Mistress Chickenstalker, what
  1277. has happened to your pinnie?
  1278.  
  1279. 273
  1280. 00:17:20,730 --> 00:17:22,729
  1281. You look as if you've
  1282. been caught in a cyclone.
  1283.  
  1284. 274
  1285. 00:17:22,731 --> 00:17:24,331
  1286. That's much better.
  1287.  
  1288. 275
  1289. 00:17:24,333 --> 00:17:27,137
  1290. Master Corporal Skittles, sir.
  1291. On your feet, sir!
  1292.  
  1293. 276
  1294. 00:17:31,973 --> 00:17:34,208
  1295. (laughing)
  1296.  
  1297. 277
  1298. 00:17:34,210 --> 00:17:37,413
  1299. Ah, Lucifer Box.
  1300.  
  1301. 278
  1302. 00:17:39,080 --> 00:17:41,317
  1303. - Would you do me the honor?
  1304. - (laughing)
  1305.  
  1306. 279
  1307. 00:17:42,384 --> 00:17:44,117
  1308. Good.
  1309.  
  1310. 280
  1311. 00:17:44,119 --> 00:17:48,221
  1312. Ah, the Snodgering Blee.
  1313. We meet at last.
  1314.  
  1315. 281
  1316. 00:17:48,223 --> 00:17:50,056
  1317. What's this?
  1318.  
  1319. 282
  1320. 00:17:50,058 --> 00:17:53,026
  1321. You have forgotten
  1322. to wash behind your ear.
  1323.  
  1324. 283
  1325. 00:17:53,028 --> 00:17:55,362
  1326. (laughing)
  1327. Cor!
  1328.  
  1329. 284
  1330. 00:17:55,364 --> 00:17:58,201
  1331. Now you must be...
  1332. Don't... Don't tell me.
  1333.  
  1334. 285
  1335. 00:17:59,367 --> 00:18:01,034
  1336. - (whispers) Who is that?
  1337. - Tara.
  1338.  
  1339. 286
  1340. 00:18:01,036 --> 00:18:03,237
  1341. Tara. Of course.
  1342.  
  1343. 287
  1344. 00:18:03,239 --> 00:18:05,439
  1345. - I see you've made a conquest.
  1346. - (chuckles)
  1347.  
  1348. 288
  1349. 00:18:05,441 --> 00:18:07,940
  1350. What was that wonderful story
  1351. I overheard you telling
  1352.  
  1353. 289
  1354. 00:18:07,942 --> 00:18:11,411
  1355. about fairy mounds
  1356. and the fire spirits?
  1357.  
  1358. 290
  1359. 00:18:11,413 --> 00:18:15,882
  1360. Only a story my gran used to tell
  1361. us, sir, back home in Ireland.
  1362.  
  1363. 291
  1364. 00:18:15,884 --> 00:18:17,985
  1365. She used to say
  1366. that on Christmas Eve
  1367.  
  1368. 292
  1369. 00:18:17,987 --> 00:18:21,220
  1370. the veils between this world
  1371. and the next thin out,
  1372.  
  1373. 293
  1374. 00:18:21,222 --> 00:18:24,894
  1375. and that's when the spirits
  1376. cross over and walk among us.
  1377.  
  1378. 294
  1379. 00:18:26,194 --> 00:18:27,797
  1380. Do they indeed?
  1381.  
  1382. 295
  1383. 00:18:29,030 --> 00:18:31,364
  1384. Well, well, well.
  1385.  
  1386. 296
  1387. 00:18:31,366 --> 00:18:33,001
  1388. Christmas Eve.
  1389.  
  1390. 297
  1391. 00:18:34,569 --> 00:18:39,075
  1392. (applause)
  1393.  
  1394. 298
  1395. 00:18:41,442 --> 00:18:43,943
  1396. Thank you so much
  1397. for coming.
  1398.  
  1399. 299
  1400. 00:18:43,945 --> 00:18:46,815
  1401. - It was such an interesting speech.
  1402. - Thank you very much.
  1403.  
  1404. 300
  1405. 00:18:47,817 --> 00:18:50,083
  1406. - Your hat, sir.
  1407. - Thank you.
  1408.  
  1409. 301
  1410. 00:18:50,085 --> 00:18:52,885
  1411. Oh, Mr. Dickens, it's such
  1412. an honor to meet you.
  1413.  
  1414. 302
  1415. 00:18:52,887 --> 00:18:55,389
  1416. - We just adore your books.
  1417. - No, we don't.
  1418.  
  1419. 303
  1420. 00:18:55,391 --> 00:18:59,026
  1421. - Well, I love them.
  1422. - Nonsense. You just like a good cry.
  1423.  
  1424. 304
  1425. 00:18:59,028 --> 00:19:02,062
  1426. What is it you particularly
  1427. object to in my books?
  1428.  
  1429. 305
  1430. 00:19:02,064 --> 00:19:05,097
  1431. Pickpockets, streetwalkers,
  1432. charity boys.
  1433.  
  1434. 306
  1435. 00:19:05,099 --> 00:19:07,100
  1436. Those people
  1437. don't belong in books.
  1438.  
  1439. 307
  1440. 00:19:07,102 --> 00:19:09,135
  1441. "Those people"?
  1442. You mean, the poor?
  1443.  
  1444. 308
  1445. 00:19:09,137 --> 00:19:12,005
  1446. Look here, Mr. Dickens.
  1447. I'm a self-made man.
  1448.  
  1449. 309
  1450. 00:19:12,007 --> 00:19:14,274
  1451. Pulled myself up
  1452. by my own bootstraps.
  1453.  
  1454. 310
  1455. 00:19:14,276 --> 00:19:17,844
  1456. Never asked for anything from anyone
  1457. that I wasn't willing to pay for.
  1458.  
  1459. 311
  1460. 00:19:17,846 --> 00:19:20,913
  1461. - Really? No help from anyone?
  1462. - None.
  1463.  
  1464. 312
  1465. 00:19:20,915 --> 00:19:24,788
  1466. Well, Papa did give us a very small
  1467. cotton mill when we were married.
  1468.  
  1469. 313
  1470. 00:19:27,189 --> 00:19:29,922
  1471. What do you suggest we do
  1472. with "those people"? Hmm?
  1473.  
  1474. 314
  1475. 00:19:29,924 --> 00:19:31,126
  1476. Are there no workhouses?
  1477.  
  1478. 315
  1479. 00:19:33,863 --> 00:19:36,263
  1480. Do you know how many people
  1481. would rather die than go there?
  1482.  
  1483. 316
  1484. 00:19:36,265 --> 00:19:38,065
  1485. Then they'd
  1486. better do it
  1487.  
  1488. 317
  1489. 00:19:38,067 --> 00:19:40,303
  1490. and reduce
  1491. the surplus population.
  1492.  
  1493. 318
  1494. 00:19:45,941 --> 00:19:47,576
  1495. (man) Can you spare
  1496. a bob, please?
  1497.  
  1498. 319
  1499. 00:19:57,353 --> 00:20:00,557
  1500. Care to buy, sir?
  1501. Hard workers.
  1502.  
  1503. 320
  1504. 00:20:03,659 --> 00:20:05,124
  1505. Fit any chimney.
  1506.  
  1507. 321
  1508. 00:20:05,126 --> 00:20:07,196
  1509. - You f...
  1510. - (whinnies)
  1511.  
  1512. 322
  1513. 00:20:14,435 --> 00:20:16,338
  1514. Quick!
  1515. Come on! In here!
  1516.  
  1517. 323
  1518. 00:20:19,909 --> 00:20:21,845
  1519. - Down here now!
  1520. - (child cries out)
  1521.  
  1522. 324
  1523. 00:20:23,979 --> 00:20:25,459
  1524. - (man) Come on!
  1525. - (child screams) No!
  1526.  
  1527. 325
  1528. 00:20:35,190 --> 00:20:38,225
  1529. (man) I lift mine eyes
  1530. unto the hills
  1531.  
  1532. 326
  1533. 00:20:38,227 --> 00:20:41,094
  1534. from whence cometh
  1535. my help.
  1536.  
  1537. 327
  1538. 00:20:41,096 --> 00:20:44,297
  1539. My help cometh
  1540. even from the Lord,
  1541.  
  1542. 328
  1543. 00:20:44,299 --> 00:20:46,533
  1544. who hath made
  1545. heaven and earth...
  1546.  
  1547. 329
  1548. 00:20:46,535 --> 00:20:50,437
  1549. All right, all right. I'm not paying
  1550. you by the hour. Skip to the end.
  1551.  
  1552. 330
  1553. 00:20:50,439 --> 00:20:53,206
  1554. (man, rapidly) Rest eternal, grant to him, O
  1555. Lord. Let light perpetual shine upon him.
  1556.  
  1557. 331
  1558. 00:20:53,208 --> 00:20:55,107
  1559. - Amen. Amen.
  1560. - Amen.
  1561.  
  1562. 332
  1563. 00:20:55,109 --> 00:20:57,009
  1564. Shame, innit?
  1565.  
  1566. 333
  1567. 00:20:57,011 --> 00:21:00,247
  1568. All that money and no one here to
  1569. mourn him except Old Scratch there.
  1570.  
  1571. 334
  1572. 00:21:00,249 --> 00:21:03,150
  1573. - Who's that?
  1574. - His business partner.
  1575.  
  1576. 335
  1577. 00:21:03,152 --> 00:21:05,952
  1578. The meanest cur on two legs,
  1579. so they say.
  1580.  
  1581. 336
  1582. 00:21:05,954 --> 00:21:07,890
  1583. Aye, right.
  1584. Come on.
  1585.  
  1586. 337
  1587. 00:21:45,227 --> 00:21:48,464
  1588. Ah... humbug.
  1589.  
  1590. 338
  1591. 00:21:58,507 --> 00:21:59,642
  1592. "Humbug."
  1593.  
  1594. 339
  1595. 00:22:03,545 --> 00:22:06,013
  1596. "Are there no workhouses?
  1597.  
  1598. 340
  1599. 00:22:06,015 --> 00:22:07,447
  1600. Well, then they'd
  1601. better do it
  1602.  
  1603. 341
  1604. 00:22:07,449 --> 00:22:09,649
  1605. and decrease
  1606. the surplus population."
  1607.  
  1608. 342
  1609. 00:22:09,651 --> 00:22:13,423
  1610. (chuckling) "Old Scratch.
  1611. All that money. Shame."
  1612.  
  1613. 343
  1614. 00:22:15,423 --> 00:22:17,790
  1615. Good evening, sir.
  1616.  
  1617. 344
  1618. 00:22:17,792 --> 00:22:19,127
  1619. Yes, it is,
  1620. Mrs. Fisk.
  1621.  
  1622. 345
  1623. 00:22:20,528 --> 00:22:22,528
  1624. - Charles?
  1625. - (shouting) Humbug! Humbug!
  1626.  
  1627. 346
  1628. 00:22:22,530 --> 00:22:25,134
  1629. Humbug! Ha-ha!
  1630.  
  1631. 347
  1632. 00:22:31,773 --> 00:22:35,074
  1633. (Charles's voice) It's about a businessman.
  1634. Or a factory owner. A miser.
  1635.  
  1636. 348
  1637. 00:22:35,076 --> 00:22:39,179
  1638. His partner dies. He doesn't shed a tear.
  1639. Thinks only of the money.
  1640.  
  1641. 349
  1642. 00:22:39,181 --> 00:22:40,713
  1643. And on
  1644. Christmas Eve...
  1645.  
  1646. 350
  1647. 00:22:40,715 --> 00:22:44,351
  1648. On Christmas Eve,
  1649. he meets some kind of... of...
  1650.  
  1651. 351
  1652. 00:22:44,353 --> 00:22:48,154
  1653. of supernatural guides,
  1654. or spirits, possibly,
  1655.  
  1656. 352
  1657. 00:22:48,156 --> 00:22:50,257
  1658. who in the course
  1659. of one night
  1660.  
  1661. 353
  1662. 00:22:50,259 --> 00:22:53,794
  1663. teach him what a miserable,
  1664. loathsome, selfish toad he is.
  1665.  
  1666. 354
  1667. 00:22:53,796 --> 00:22:56,065
  1668. It's a short book.
  1669. Short and sharp.
  1670.  
  1671. 355
  1672. 00:22:57,199 --> 00:22:58,498
  1673. A hammer blow
  1674. to the heart
  1675.  
  1676. 356
  1677. 00:22:58,500 --> 00:23:01,069
  1678. of this smug,
  1679. self-satisfied age.
  1680.  
  1681. 357
  1682. 00:23:07,342 --> 00:23:09,375
  1683. - It's a comedy.
  1684. - (laughing)
  1685.  
  1686. 358
  1687. 00:23:09,377 --> 00:23:12,312
  1688. - Brilliant.
  1689. - (laughing continues)
  1690.  
  1691. 359
  1692. 00:23:12,314 --> 00:23:14,780
  1693. - Does it have a title?
  1694. - Yes.
  1695.  
  1696. 360
  1697. 00:23:14,782 --> 00:23:17,352
  1698. (clears throat)
  1699. Humbug: A Miser's Lament.
  1700.  
  1701. 361
  1702. 00:23:20,689 --> 00:23:23,190
  1703. A Christmas Ghost Story...
  1704. Christmas Song...
  1705.  
  1706. 362
  1707. 00:23:23,192 --> 00:23:24,824
  1708. Christmas Ballad.
  1709. Something like that.
  1710.  
  1711. 363
  1712. 00:23:24,826 --> 00:23:28,828
  1713. Intriguing, really.
  1714. Ah, just one question.
  1715.  
  1716. 364
  1717. 00:23:28,830 --> 00:23:30,198
  1718. Why Christmas?
  1719.  
  1720. 365
  1721. 00:23:32,134 --> 00:23:34,534
  1722. - Well, why not?
  1723. - Does anybody really celebrate it anymore?
  1724.  
  1725. 366
  1726. 00:23:34,536 --> 00:23:37,170
  1727. Apart from our clerk, who
  1728. never misses an opportunity
  1729.  
  1730. 367
  1731. 00:23:37,172 --> 00:23:39,639
  1732. to take a day off...
  1733. with pay.
  1734.  
  1735. 368
  1736. 00:23:39,641 --> 00:23:43,776
  1737. More or less an opportunity for picking
  1738. a man's pocket every 25th of December.
  1739.  
  1740. 369
  1741. 00:23:43,778 --> 00:23:47,213
  1742. - (chuckles)
  1743. - What we mean to say, Mr. Dickens, is,
  1744.  
  1745. 370
  1746. 00:23:47,215 --> 00:23:49,751
  1747. not much of a market
  1748. for Christmas books, what?
  1749.  
  1750. 371
  1751. 00:23:55,190 --> 00:23:59,625
  1752. It is a Christmas book because Christmas
  1753. is, or ought to be, the one time of year
  1754.  
  1755. 372
  1756. 00:23:59,627 --> 00:24:03,563
  1757. when men and women
  1758. open their shut-up hearts
  1759.  
  1760. 373
  1761. 00:24:03,565 --> 00:24:07,467
  1762. and think of people below them as if they
  1763. really were fellow passengers to the grave
  1764.  
  1765. 374
  1766. 00:24:07,469 --> 00:24:09,568
  1767. and not another race
  1768. of creatures altogether.
  1769.  
  1770. 375
  1771. 00:24:09,570 --> 00:24:11,837
  1772. We are already
  1773. halfway through October.
  1774.  
  1775. 376
  1776. 00:24:11,839 --> 00:24:15,174
  1777. Even if you had already written it, we
  1778. couldn't possibly get it illustrated,
  1779.  
  1780. 377
  1781. 00:24:15,176 --> 00:24:18,344
  1782. typeset, printed and bound,
  1783. advertised and distributed to shops
  1784.  
  1785. 378
  1786. 00:24:18,346 --> 00:24:19,816
  1787. in only six weeks.
  1788.  
  1789. 379
  1790. 00:24:22,483 --> 00:24:23,586
  1791. Well...
  1792.  
  1793. 380
  1794. 00:24:24,752 --> 00:24:26,585
  1795. thank you
  1796. for your opinion.
  1797.  
  1798. 381
  1799. 00:24:26,587 --> 00:24:27,690
  1800. Mr. Dickens!
  1801.  
  1802. 382
  1803. 00:24:31,593 --> 00:24:34,527
  1804. Tie it off now.
  1805. That's it.
  1806.  
  1807. 383
  1808. 00:24:34,529 --> 00:24:38,864
  1809. Scaly-headed vultures.
  1810. Money-grubbing, scum-sucking...
  1811.  
  1812. 384
  1813. 00:24:38,866 --> 00:24:41,567
  1814. - But, Charles...
  1815. - I'll do it myself.
  1816.  
  1817. 385
  1818. 00:24:41,569 --> 00:24:44,504
  1819. - What?
  1820. - I'll pay for it myself... all of it.
  1821.  
  1822. 386
  1823. 00:24:44,506 --> 00:24:46,672
  1824. Illustrations, everything.
  1825. I'll distribute it myself.
  1826.  
  1827. 387
  1828. 00:24:46,674 --> 00:24:50,209
  1829. But, Charles, this is madness.
  1830. Think of your finances, huh?
  1831.  
  1832. 388
  1833. 00:24:50,211 --> 00:24:52,379
  1834. Come on. We'll go back.
  1835. We'll renegotiate.
  1836.  
  1837. 389
  1838. 00:24:52,381 --> 00:24:54,280
  1839. No shame in it.
  1840. It's just business.
  1841.  
  1842. 390
  1843. 00:24:54,282 --> 00:24:57,449
  1844. Why throw everything away
  1845. for a minor holiday?
  1846.  
  1847. 391
  1848. 00:24:57,451 --> 00:25:00,353
  1849. No, I've never felt so strongly
  1850. about anything in my life, John.
  1851.  
  1852. 392
  1853. 00:25:00,355 --> 00:25:02,455
  1854. You can help me or not,
  1855. as you wish.
  1856.  
  1857. 393
  1858. 00:25:02,457 --> 00:25:04,824
  1859. - Where are you off to?
  1860. - Going to raise some capital.
  1861.  
  1862. 394
  1863. 00:25:04,826 --> 00:25:06,593
  1864. One thing I've learned
  1865. from my father...
  1866.  
  1867. 395
  1868. 00:25:06,595 --> 00:25:08,961
  1869. people will believe anything
  1870. if you're properly dressed.
  1871.  
  1872. 396
  1873. 00:25:08,963 --> 00:25:11,698
  1874. (Charles) Mr. Trabb!
  1875. Your finest cravats!
  1876.  
  1877. 397
  1878. 00:25:11,700 --> 00:25:13,903
  1879. (whistle blows)
  1880.  
  1881. 398
  1882. 00:25:19,607 --> 00:25:21,674
  1883. Ah.
  1884.  
  1885. 399
  1886. 00:25:21,676 --> 00:25:23,776
  1887. Nothing like the air
  1888. of the metropolis
  1889.  
  1890. 400
  1891. 00:25:23,778 --> 00:25:26,313
  1892. to put color in your cheeks,

  1932. Hello, old dog.
  1933. (squawks)
  1934.  
  1935. 410
  1936. 00:26:00,548 --> 00:26:04,017
  1937. Perhaps we could,
  1938. um, strike a bargain.
  1939.  
  1940. 411
  1941. 00:26:04,019 --> 00:26:06,923
  1942. - (raven) Hello.
  1943. - Good with children, is it?
  1944.  
  1945. 412
  1946. 00:26:15,263 --> 00:26:16,565
  1947. Too much?

  1952. and Mr. Forster.
  1953.  
  1954. 414
  1955. 00:26:21,936 --> 00:26:24,270

  1957.  
  1958. 415
  1959. 00:26:24,272 --> 00:26:26,408
  1960. Very well, thank you,
  1961. Mr. Haddock.
  1962.  
  1963. 416
  1964. 00:26:27,476 --> 00:26:28,874
  1965. Mittens.

  1967. 417
  1968. 00:26:28,876 --> 00:26:30,576
  1969. (purring)
  1970.  
  1971. 418
  1972. 00:26:30,578 --> 00:26:33,380
  1973. You are a bad boy.
  1974.  
  1975. 419
  1976. 00:26:33,382 --> 00:26:35,681
  1977. (growling)

  1987.  
  1988. 422
  1989. 00:26:42,023 --> 00:26:44,990
  1990. Now, how may I be
  1991. of service to you?
  1992.  
  1993. 423
  1994. 00:26:44,992 --> 00:26:47,459
  1995. Well, sir,
  1996. it's about the loan.
  1997.  
  1998. 424
  1999. 00:26:47,461 --> 00:26:50,398
  2000. There was something I wanted to tell you.
  2001. What was it?
  2002.  
  2003. 425
  2004. 00:26:51,799 --> 00:26:55,035
  2005. It was some rather good news,
  2006. if I recall correctly.
  2007.  
  2008. 426
  2009. 00:26:55,037 --> 00:26:56,670
  2010. What, uh...
  2011.  
  2012. 427
  2013. 00:26:56,672 --> 00:26:57,839
  2014. Ah.
  2015.  
  2016. 428
  2017. 00:27:00,409 --> 00:27:01,674
  2018. Biscuit?
  2019.  
  2020. 429
  2021. 00:27:01,676 --> 00:27:04,713
  2022. Well... thank you.
  2023.  
  2024. 430
  2025. 00:27:08,916 --> 00:27:10,019
  2026. Mmm.
  2027.  
  2028. 431
  2029. 00:27:11,586 --> 00:27:14,988
  2030. Ah! Uh, yes.
  2031.  
  2032. 432
  2033. 00:27:14,990 --> 00:27:17,590
  2034. Now, what was I, uh...
  2035. What...
  2036.  
  2037. 433
  2038. 00:27:17,592 --> 00:27:21,026
  2039. Uh, you said something
  2040. about good news?
  2041.  
  2042. 434
  2043. 00:27:21,028 --> 00:27:23,063
  2044. Possibly
  2045. about the lawsuit?
  2046.  
  2047. 435
  2048. 00:27:23,065 --> 00:27:25,731
  2049. Ah, the lawsuit.
  2050.  
  2051. 436
  2052. 00:27:25,733 --> 00:27:27,901
  2053. Yes, the copyright
  2054. infringement.
  2055.

  2057. 00:27:27,903 --> 00:27:30,636
  2058. Oliver Twisted. "As re-originated

  2062. 00:27:30,638 --> 00:27:33,038
  2063. Yes! Ha!
  2064. I have it here.
  2065.  
  2066. 439
  2067. 00:27:33,040 --> 00:27:35,644
  2068. Uh... Ah, yes.
  2069.  
  2070. 440
  2071. 00:27:36,644 --> 00:27:39,978
  2072. Good news indeed.
  2073. We won.
  2074.  
  2075. 441
  2076. 00:27:39,980 --> 00:27:42,882
  2077. The fine was set
  2078. at £2,200.
  2079.

  2081. 00:27:42,884 --> 00:27:45,117
  2082. 2,200!
  2083.  
  2084. 443
  2085. 00:27:45,119 --> 00:27:47,720
  2086. The bad news is,
  2087. the defendants have no money.
  2088.  
  2089. 444
  2090. 00:27:47,722 --> 00:27:49,625
  2091. - Ah.
  2092. - Bankrupt.
  2093.  
  2094. 445
  2095. 00:27:50,726 --> 00:27:52,728
  2096. Disappointing, I know.
  2097.  
  2098. 446
  2099. 00:27:55,463 --> 00:27:58,030
  2100. But we'll have them arrested,
  2101. throw them into debtor's prison.
  2102.  
  2103. 447
  2104. 00:27:58,032 --> 00:27:59,599
  2105. No. No, no.
  2106.  
  2107. 448
  2108. 00:27:59,601 --> 00:28:00,803
  2109. No?
  2110.  
  2111. 449
  2112. 00:28:02,371 --> 00:28:03,806
  2113. As you wish.
  2114.  
  2115. 450
  2116. 00:28:04,705 --> 00:28:06,940
  2117. In the meantime,
  2118.  
  2119. 451
  2120. 00:28:06,942 --> 00:28:09,077
  2121. if you would be
  2122. so good...
  2123.  
  2124. 452
  2125. 00:28:16,718 --> 00:28:18,321
  2126. here's my bill.
  2127.  
  2128. 453
  2129. 00:28:24,125 --> 00:28:27,427
  2130. No rush.
  2131. Next week will be fine.
  2132.  
  2133. 454
  2134. 00:28:27,429 --> 00:28:28,995
  2135. Hmm.
  2136.  
  2137. 455
  2138. 00:28:28,997 --> 00:28:33,600
  2139. Tell you what. Why don't we
  2140. defer this until... January?
  2141.  
  2142. 456
  2143. 00:28:33,602 --> 00:28:36,469
  2144. And while we're at it, perhaps
  2145. you might add a little bit more.
  2146.  
  2147. 457
  2148. 00:28:36,471 --> 00:28:38,171
  2149. I'll make it
  2150. worth your while.
  2151.  
  2152. 458
  2153. 00:28:38,173 --> 00:28:39,674
  2154. More?
  2155.  
  2156. 459
  2157. 00:28:42,176 --> 00:28:44,413
  2158. You wish to borrow more?
  2159.  
  2160. 460
  2161. 00:28:47,048 --> 00:28:48,683
  2162. Not very much.
  2163. Just...
  2164.  
  2165. 461
  2166. 00:28:50,085 --> 00:28:53,486
  2167. £300...
  2168. till January.
  2169.  
  2170. 462
  2171. 00:28:53,488 --> 00:28:55,889
  2172. I think we can
  2173. increase your loan
  2174.  
  2175. 463
  2176. 00:28:55,891 --> 00:28:59,159
  2177. at, shall we say,
  2178. 25 percent?
  2179.  
  2180. 464
  2181. 00:28:59,161 --> 00:29:00,696
  2182. God's teeth!
  2183.  
  2184. 465
  2185. 00:29:02,196 --> 00:29:03,465
  2186. Thank you.
  2187.  
  2188. 466
  2189. 00:29:07,836 --> 00:29:09,739
  2190. Charles.
  2191. Charles.
  2192.  
  2193. 467
  2194. 00:29:10,939 --> 00:29:12,838
  2195. - Are you all right?
  2196. - Yeah.
  2197.  
  2198. 468
  2199. 00:29:12,840 --> 00:29:14,606
  2200. Never better.
  2201.  
  2202. 469
  2203. 00:29:14,608 --> 00:29:16,745
  2204. Now find me
  2205. an illustrator.
  2206.  
  2207. 470
  2208. 00:29:23,117 --> 00:29:27,786
  2209. He was a tight-fisted,
  2210. hand to the grindstone
  2211.  
  2212. 471
  2213. 00:29:27,788 --> 00:29:31,557
  2214. old... Scratch.
  2215.

  2218. (grumbles)
  2219.

  2224. 474
  2225. 00:29:36,565 --> 00:29:37,732
  2226. He was a...
  2227.  
  2228. 475
  2229. 00:29:39,134 --> 00:29:42,137
  2230. covetous old sinner.
  2231. (grumbling)
  2232.  
  2233. 476
  2234. 00:29:44,038 --> 00:29:45,604
  2235. - Name!

  2245.  
  2246. 479
  2247. 00:29:49,644 --> 00:29:51,978
  2248. Name! Ah!
  2249.  
  2250. 480
  2251. 00:29:51,980 --> 00:29:53,846
  2252. (whispering) Well, go on.
  2253. He won't bite.
  2254.  
  2255. 481
  2256. 00:29:53,848 --> 00:29:56,149
  2257. Screwpull.

  2263. 483
  2264. 00:29:59,221 --> 00:30:00,689

  2286. 488
  2287. 00:30:21,276 --> 00:30:23,575

  2294. any circumstances! Do you hear?
  2295.  
  2296. 490
  2297. 00:30:26,580 --> 00:30:29,681
  2298. I beg your pardon, sir.
  2299. It won't happen again.
  2300.  
  2301. 491
  2302. 00:30:29,683 --> 00:30:31,619
  2303. Wait. What's that
  2304. in your pocket?
  2305.  
  2306. 492
  2307. 00:30:38,692 --> 00:30:42,094
  2308. Varney the Vampire,

  2310.  
  2311. 493
  2312. 00:30:42,096 --> 00:30:45,998
  2313. You won't tell Mrs. Fisk, will ya?
  2314. She'll think I was shirkin'.
  2315.  
  2316. 494
  2317. 00:30:46,000 --> 00:30:48,636
  2318. - Where did you learn to read?
  2319. - My mum taught me.
  2320.  
  2321. 495
  2322. 00:30:49,671 --> 00:30:51,069
  2323. But then she died
  2324.  
  2325. 496
  2326. 00:30:51,071 --> 00:30:53,074
  2327. and I had to go

  2336. - Is it any good?
  2337. - Well, yes, sir. Thrilling.
  2338.  
  2339. 499
  2340. 00:31:05,987 --> 00:31:08,990

  2352.  
  2353. 502
  2354. 00:31:16,897 --> 00:31:19,567
  2355. (humming) Ah!
  2356.  
  2357. 503
  2358. 00:31:22,069 --> 00:31:24,170
  2359. Aladdin
  2360. and His Magic Lamp.
  2361.  
  2362. 504
  2363. 00:31:24,172 --> 00:31:26,038
  2364. Oh, my.
  2365.  
  2366. 505
  2367. 00:31:26,040 --> 00:31:28,240
  2368. Read it.
  2369. Let me know what you think.
  2370.  
  2371. 506
  2372. 00:31:28,242 --> 00:31:30,144
  2373. Thank you, sir.
  2374.  
  2375. 507
  2376. 00:31:31,145 --> 00:31:33,912
  2377. (clock chiming)
  2378.  
  2379. 508
  2380. 00:31:33,914 --> 00:31:35,283
  2381. Hmm.
  2382.  
  2383. 509
  2384. 00:31:39,788 --> 00:31:41,621
  2385. Who is Scrimple?
  2386.  
  2387. 510
  2388. 00:31:41,623 --> 00:31:43,021
  2389. Hmm? Scrimple?
  2390.  
  2391. 511
  2392. 00:31:43,023 --> 00:31:45,924
  2393. - When I come in, you were saying...
  2394. - Oh!
  2395.  
  2396. 512
  2397. 00:31:45,926 --> 00:31:49,761
  2398. It's just a name
  2399. for a story I'm concocting.
  2400.  
  2401. 513
  2402. 00:31:49,763 --> 00:31:53,269
  2403. Get the name right and then, if you're
  2404. lucky, the character will appear.
  2405.  
  2406. 514
  2407. 00:31:54,935 --> 00:31:56,736
  2408. Hmm.
  2409.  
  2410. 515
  2411. 00:31:56,738 --> 00:31:57,972
  2412. He's not here yet.
  2413.  
  2414. 516
  2415. 00:31:59,974 --> 00:32:02,877
  2416. Scrantish?
  2417.  
  2418. 517
  2419. 00:32:04,945 --> 00:32:07,148
  2420. Scrarmer.
  2421.  
  2422. 518
  2423. 00:32:09,049 --> 00:32:10,382
  2424. - (snapping fingers)
  2425. - Come on.
  2426.  
  2427. 519
  2428. 00:32:10,384 --> 00:32:13,686
  2429. (rolling "R")
  2430. Scrunge.
  2431.  
  2432. 520
  2433. 00:32:13,688 --> 00:32:15,622
  2434. Aw, come on!
  2435.  
  2436. 521
  2437. 00:32:15,624 --> 00:32:17,026
  2438. Come on,
  2439. you old sinner!
  2440.  
  2441. 522
  2442. 00:32:19,326 --> 00:32:20,996
  2443. Scrooge!
  2444.  
  2445. 523
  2446. 00:32:22,696 --> 00:32:26,132
  2447. Shut the window! Do you
  2448. think I'm made of money?
  2449.  
  2450. 524
  2451. 00:32:26,134 --> 00:32:28,634
  2452. Mr. Scrooge.
  2453.  
  2454. 525
  2455. 00:32:28,636 --> 00:32:32,037
  2456. - How delightful to meet you, sir.
  2457. - Sorry I can't say the same.
  2458.  
  2459. 526
  2460. 00:32:32,039 --> 00:32:34,774
  2461. Come now. Don't be standoffish.
  2462. We ought to be friends.
  2463.  
  2464. 527
  2465. 00:32:34,776 --> 00:32:36,742
  2466. - Don't have friends. Don't need 'em.
  2467. - Ah.
  2468.  
  2469. 528
  2470. 00:32:36,744 --> 00:32:38,878
  2471. Naturally.
  2472.  
  2473. 529
  2474. 00:32:38,880 --> 00:32:40,747
  2475. - I know. Let's play a game.
  2476. - Don't like games.
  2477.  
  2478. 530
  2479. 00:32:40,749 --> 00:32:42,748
  2480. Well, humor me.
  2481.  
  2482. 531
  2483. 00:32:42,750 --> 00:32:46,919
  2484. What do you think of when I
  2485. say the word... "darkness"?
  2486.  
  2487. 532
  2488. 00:32:46,921 --> 00:32:48,190
  2489. Cheap.
  2490.  
  2491. 533
  2492. 00:32:49,223 --> 00:32:51,125
  2493. - Love.
  2494. - Swindle.
  2495.  
  2496. 534
  2497. 00:32:52,794 --> 00:32:54,830
  2498. - Money.
  2499. - Security.
  2500.  
  2501. 535
  2502. 00:32:56,397 --> 00:32:58,965
  2503. - Children.
  2504. - Useless.
  2505.  
  2506. 536
  2507. 00:32:58,967 --> 00:33:01,070
  2508. - Workhouse.
  2509. - Useful.
  2510.  
  2511. 537
  2512. 00:33:04,172 --> 00:33:05,307
  2513. Christmas.
  2514.  
  2515. 538
  2516. 00:33:08,676 --> 00:33:10,111
  2517. Christmas?
  2518.  
  2519. 539
  2520. 00:33:11,413 --> 00:33:12,847
  2521. That's right.
  2522.  
  2523. 540
  2524. 00:33:17,117 --> 00:33:19,786
  2525. - (Mrs. Fisk) Help! Help! Get it away!
  2526. - (children squealing, chattering)
  2527.  
  2528. 541
  2529. 00:33:19,788 --> 00:33:21,754
  2530. - (groans)
  2531. - (Mrs. Fisk) Away!
  2532.  
  2533. 542
  2534. 00:33:21,756 --> 00:33:23,422
  2535. (grunts)
  2536.  
  2537. 543
  2538. 00:33:23,424 --> 00:33:25,091
  2539. - (screams)
  2540. - What is going on?
  2541.  
  2542. 544
  2543. 00:33:25,093 --> 00:33:26,992
  2544. Get it away,
  2545. the filthy thing.
  2546.  
  2547. 545
  2548. 00:33:26,994 --> 00:33:29,194
  2549. Come on, Grip, old chap.
  2550. Back in the cage.
  2551.  
  2552. 546
  2553. 00:33:29,196 --> 00:33:31,130
  2554. - Father?
  2555. - Ah. Charles.
  2556.  
  2557. 547
  2558. 00:33:31,132 --> 00:33:32,998
  2559. - Good day.
  2560. - What are you doing here?
  2561.  
  2562. 548
  2563. 00:33:33,000 --> 00:33:35,101
  2564. Well, we were
  2565. in the neighborhood
  2566.  
  2567. 549
  2568. 00:33:35,103 --> 00:33:38,203
  2569. and we thought we'd drop by with
  2570. a present for the children.
  2571.  
  2572. 550
  2573. 00:33:38,205 --> 00:33:40,273
  2574. (Charley) His name is Grip.
  2575. He talks!
  2576.  
  2577. 551
  2578. 00:33:40,275 --> 00:33:42,808
  2579. - Can we keep him?
  2580. - (Grip) Hello, old girl.
  2581.  
  2582. 552
  2583. 00:33:42,810 --> 00:33:45,077
  2584. It's bad luck, a bird in the house.
  2585. It means death.
  2586.  
  2587. 553
  2588. 00:33:45,079 --> 00:33:46,813
  2589. - Hello!
  2590. - Father, in here.
  2591.  
  2592. 554
  2593. 00:33:46,815 --> 00:33:48,717
  2594. - (squawking)
  2595. - Of course.
  2596.  
  2597. 555
  2598. 00:33:51,352 --> 00:33:54,319
  2599. Charles? Charles?
  2600.  
  2601. 556
  2602. 00:33:54,321 --> 00:33:56,988
  2603. What are you doing
  2604. back in London?
  2605.  
  2606. 557
  2607. 00:33:56,990 --> 00:33:59,491
  2608. (sighs)
  2609. My dear Charles.
  2610.  
  2611. 558
  2612. 00:33:59,493 --> 00:34:02,394
  2613. I will not disguise from you
  2614. that this is not the ardor
  2615.  
  2616. 559
  2617. 00:34:02,396 --> 00:34:04,396
  2618. with which a loving father
  2619. might be expected...
  2620.  
  2621. 560
  2622. 00:34:04,398 --> 00:34:07,100
  2623. - You are supposed to be in Devon.
  2624. - (scoffs)
  2625.  
  2626. 561
  2627. 00:34:07,102 --> 00:34:08,334
  2628. Banishment!
  2629.  
  2630. 562
  2631. 00:34:08,336 --> 00:34:11,503
  2632. Be merciful
  2633. and say "death,"
  2634.  
  2635. 563
  2636. 00:34:11,505 --> 00:34:14,143
  2637. for exile has more
  2638. terror in its look.
  2639.  
  2640. 564
  2641. 00:34:15,342 --> 00:34:18,244
  2642. Father,
  2643. we had an agreement.
  2644.  
  2645. 565
  2646. 00:34:18,246 --> 00:34:19,945
  2647. Hmm?
  2648.  
  2649. 566
  2650. 00:34:19,947 --> 00:34:21,780
  2651. I bought you a house.
  2652.  
  2653. 567
  2654. 00:34:21,782 --> 00:34:24,016
  2655. I gave you an allowance.
  2656.  
  2657. 568
  2658. 00:34:24,018 --> 00:34:26,818
  2659. For which
  2660. I am very grateful.
  2661.  
  2662. 569
  2663. 00:34:26,820 --> 00:34:29,889
  2664. As for me, I'm happy
  2665. wherever the weather.
  2666.  
  2667. 570
  2668. 00:34:29,891 --> 00:34:33,762
  2669. But your mother is of
  2670. a more delicate sensibility.
  2671.  
  2672. 571
  2673. 00:34:34,795 --> 00:34:37,963
  2674. Charles,
  2675. the mere sight of cows
  2676.  
  2677. 572
  2678. 00:34:37,965 --> 00:34:40,234
  2679. causes her
  2680. actual physical pain.
  2681.  
  2682. 573
  2683. 00:34:41,402 --> 00:34:43,436
  2684. Father.
  2685.  
  2686. 574
  2687. 00:34:43,438 --> 00:34:46,340
  2688. And I have research to do
  2689. in the London Library.
  2690.  
  2691. 575
  2692. 00:34:49,010 --> 00:34:50,713
  2693. - Research?
  2694. - Oh, yes.
  2695.  
  2696. 576
  2697. 00:34:52,045 --> 00:34:53,945
  2698. Yeah.
  2699.  
  2700. 577
  2701. 00:34:53,947 --> 00:34:56,816
  2702. I have a commission
  2703. from The Spectator
  2704.  
  2705. 578
  2706. 00:34:56,818 --> 00:34:59,421
  2707. to write a feature
  2708. on the Bank Charter Act.
  2709.  
  2710. 579
  2711. 00:35:00,454 --> 00:35:02,487
  2712. The editor
  2713. was very impressed
  2714.  
  2715. 580
  2716. 00:35:02,489 --> 00:35:05,391
  2717. with my series
  2718. on marine insurance.
  2719.  
  2720. 581
  2721. 00:35:05,393 --> 00:35:09,929
  2722. Good for you, Father. I do hope that
  2723. you and Mother will stay here with us.
  2724.  
  2725. 582
  2726. 00:35:09,931 --> 00:35:13,068
  2727. The children and I will so enjoy
  2728. having some company in the evenings.
  2729.  
  2730. 583
  2731. 00:35:20,108 --> 00:35:22,277
  2732. The Spectator.
  2733. Well, that's, um...
  2734.  
  2735. 584
  2736. 00:35:23,478 --> 00:35:25,481
  2737. That's most impressive.
  2738.  
  2739. 585
  2740. 00:35:27,414 --> 00:35:29,817
  2741. (chuckles)
  2742. Thank you, dear boy.
  2743.  
  2744. 586
  2745. 00:35:30,451 --> 00:35:32,150
  2746. Oh, by the way,
  2747.  
  2748. 587
  2749. 00:35:32,152 --> 00:35:34,420
  2750. you couldn't lend me
  2751. a tenner, could you?
  2752.  
  2753. 588
  2754. 00:35:34,422 --> 00:35:37,123
  2755. That blighter took my last
  2756. farthing for the cage.
  2757.  
  2758. 589
  2759. 00:35:37,125 --> 00:35:38,360
  2760. - (wings fluttering)
  2761. - (gasps)
  2762.  
  2763. 590
  2764. 00:35:42,429 --> 00:35:45,331
  2765. - (squawk)
  2766. - It was the bird, sir. It flew upstairs.
  2767.  
  2768. 591
  2769. 00:35:45,333 --> 00:35:50,302
  2770. Oh, um, I'll see
  2771. that it's all cleared up.
  2772.  
  2773. 592
  2774. 00:35:50,304 --> 00:35:53,005
  2775. - (squawking)
  2776. - Please, can we keep him?
  2777.  
  2778. 593
  2779. 00:35:53,007 --> 00:35:54,842
  2780. Well, I, um...
  2781.  
  2782. 594
  2783. 00:35:57,512 --> 00:35:59,481
  2784. (laughs)
  2785. Come on, Walter.
  2786.  
  2787. 595
  2788. 00:36:02,449 --> 00:36:04,483
  2789. (sighs)
  2790.  
  2791. 596
  2792. 00:36:04,485 --> 00:36:07,523
  2793. "This is not the ardor
  2794. with which a loving father..."
  2795.  
  2796. 597
  2797. 00:36:08,389 --> 00:36:10,159
  2798. (sighs)
  2799.  
  2800. 598
  2801. 00:36:11,893 --> 00:36:12,994
  2802. (Scrooge)
  2803. Humbug!
  2804.  
  2805. 599
  2806. 00:36:14,161 --> 00:36:16,497
  2807. - What is?
  2808. - Christmas.
  2809.  
  2810. 600
  2811. 00:36:19,434 --> 00:36:21,032
  2812. What about it?
  2813.  
  2814. 601
  2815. 00:36:21,034 --> 00:36:23,101
  2816. Well, what is it
  2817. but an excuse
  2818.  
  2819. 602
  2820. 00:36:23,103 --> 00:36:26,541
  2821. for picking a man's pocket
  2822. every 25th of December?
  2823.  
  2824. 603
  2825. 00:36:28,376 --> 00:36:30,242
  2826. Yes. Keep going.
  2827.  
  2828. 604
  2829. 00:36:30,244 --> 00:36:33,445
  2830. A time for paying bills
  2831. without money.
  2832.  
  2833. 605
  2834. 00:36:33,447 --> 00:36:36,481
  2835. A time for finding yourself a year
  2836. older and not an hour richer.
  2837.  
  2838. 606
  2839. 00:36:36,483 --> 00:36:38,383
  2840. (chuckles)
  2841.  
  2842. 607
  2843. 00:36:38,385 --> 00:36:40,552
  2844. If I could work my will,
  2845.  
  2846. 608
  2847. 00:36:40,554 --> 00:36:43,121
  2848. every idiot who goes about with
  2849. "Merry Christmas" on his lips
  2850.  
  2851. 609
  2852. 00:36:43,123 --> 00:36:45,291
  2853. should be boiled
  2854. in his own plum pudding
  2855.  
  2856. 610
  2857. 00:36:45,293 --> 00:36:49,061
  2858. and buried with a stake of holly
  2859. through his heart, he should.
  2860.  
  2861. 611
  2862. 00:36:49,063 --> 00:36:53,999
  2863. (laughs) Oh, Mr. Scrooge, you and I are
  2864. going to do wonderful things together.
  2865.  
  2866. 612
  2867. 00:36:54,001 --> 00:36:58,670
  2868. Oh, but he was a tight-fisted
  2869. hand at the grindstone, Scrooge.
  2870.  
  2871. 613
  2872. 00:36:58,672 --> 00:37:01,574
  2873. A squeezing, wrenching,
  2874.  
  2875. 614
  2876. 00:37:01,576 --> 00:37:05,211
  2877. grasping, scraping,
  2878.  
  2879. 615
  2880. 00:37:05,213 --> 00:37:08,014
  2881. clutching,
  2882. covetous old sinner.
  2883.  
  2884. 616
  2885. 00:37:08,016 --> 00:37:10,016
  2886. (knocking)
  2887.  
  2888. 617
  2889. 00:37:10,018 --> 00:37:11,353
  2890. (Mr. Dickens)
  2891. Charles?
  2892.  
  2893. 618
  2894. 00:37:14,588 --> 00:37:16,389
  2895. Hard at work?
  2896.  
  2897. 619
  2898. 00:37:16,391 --> 00:37:18,557
  2899. What can I help
  2900. you with, Father?
  2901.  
  2902. 620
  2903. 00:37:18,559 --> 00:37:22,461
  2904. Well, I was wondering if we might have
  2905. an extra candlestick for our room.
  2906.  
  2907. 621
  2908. 00:37:22,463 --> 00:37:24,429
  2909. - Of course.
  2910. - Oh!
  2911.  
  2912. 622
  2913. 00:37:24,431 --> 00:37:27,368
  2914. Cigars. Oh, yes.
  2915.  
  2916. 623
  2917. 00:37:28,469 --> 00:37:30,403
  2918. I must confess,
  2919.  
  2920. 624
  2921. 00:37:30,405 --> 00:37:35,273
  2922. I have acquired an irrepressible
  2923. habit of smoking whilst I write.
  2924.  
  2925. 625
  2926. 00:37:35,275 --> 00:37:36,708
  2927. Dreadful habit, I know,
  2928. but...
  2929.  
  2930. 626
  2931. 00:37:36,710 --> 00:37:38,613
  2932. Oh, yes.
  2933. (chuckles)
  2934.  
  2935. 627
  2936. 00:37:39,947 --> 00:37:41,215
  2937. Thank you.
  2938.  
  2939. 628
  2940. 00:37:44,952 --> 00:37:46,485
  2941. Hmm. Going well?
  2942.  
  2943. 629
  2944. 00:37:46,487 --> 00:37:48,990
  2945. (sniffs)
  2946. Oh. (laughs)
  2947.  
  2948. 630
  2949. 00:37:50,324 --> 00:37:52,326
  2950. I won't detain you.
  2951.  
  2952. 631
  2953. 00:38:07,240 --> 00:38:09,508
  2954. Don't do that.
  2955. D-Don't.
  2956.  
  2957. 632
  2958. 00:38:09,510 --> 00:38:11,543
  2959. - Why not?
  2960. - (man groans)
  2961.  
  2962. 633
  2963. 00:38:11,545 --> 00:38:13,112
  2964. (sighs)
  2965. Too late.
  2966.  
  2967. 634
  2968. 00:38:13,114 --> 00:38:15,347
  2969. (dragging, thumping)
  2970.  
  2971. 635
  2972. 00:38:15,349 --> 00:38:16,615
  2973. Who is it?
  2974.  
  2975. 636
  2976. 00:38:16,617 --> 00:38:18,120
  2977. Who is it?
  2978.  
  2979. 637
  2980. 00:38:19,554 --> 00:38:20,987
  2981. - Bunsby?
  2982. - (thumping continues)
  2983.  
  2984. 638
  2985. 00:38:20,989 --> 00:38:22,621
  2986. (groaning continues)
  2987.  
  2988. 639
  2989. 00:38:22,623 --> 00:38:23,692
  2990. Clennam?
  2991.  
  2992. 640
  2993. 00:38:25,693 --> 00:38:28,427
  2994. - Heep? Hexam?
  2995. - (thumping, chains clanking)
  2996.  
  2997. 641
  2998. 00:38:28,429 --> 00:38:30,195
  2999. - Oh, stop, stop!
  3000. - Magwitch?
  3001.  
  3002. 642
  3003. 00:38:30,197 --> 00:38:31,299
  3004. No.
  3005.  
  3006. 643
  3007. 00:38:32,599 --> 00:38:33,701
  3008. Marley.
  3009.  
  3010. 644
  3011. 00:38:36,771 --> 00:38:39,604
  3012. (screaming)
  3013.  
  3014. 645
  3015. 00:38:39,606 --> 00:38:41,175
  3016. (groans)
  3017.  
  3018. 646
  3019. 00:38:42,643 --> 00:38:45,577
  3020. Is that you, Jacob?
  3021.  
  3022. 647
  3023. 00:38:45,579 --> 00:38:47,746
  3024. - You know him?
  3025. - My business partner.
  3026.  
  3027. 648
  3028. 00:38:47,748 --> 00:38:50,516
  3029. Last time I saw him
  3030. he was dead as a doornail.
  3031.  
  3032. 649
  3033. 00:38:50,518 --> 00:38:53,219
  3034. How do you, Jacob?
  3035.  
  3036. 650
  3037. 00:38:53,221 --> 00:38:55,755
  3038. (Marley)
  3039. Business, business.
  3040.  
  3041. 651
  3042. 00:38:55,757 --> 00:38:58,724
  3043. Mankind was my business.
  3044.  
  3045. 652
  3046. 00:38:58,726 --> 00:39:01,296
  3047. The common welfare
  3048. was my business.
  3049.  
  3050. 653
  3051. 00:39:02,663 --> 00:39:04,132
  3052. Charity...
  3053.  
  3054. 654
  3055. 00:39:05,365 --> 00:39:06,568
  3056. mercy...
  3057.  
  3058. 655
  3059. 00:39:08,235 --> 00:39:10,135
  3060. forbearance,
  3061. and benevolence
  3062.  
  3063. 656
  3064. 00:39:10,137 --> 00:39:12,371
  3065. were all my business.
  3066.  
  3067. 657
  3068. 00:39:12,373 --> 00:39:15,240
  3069. He was never one
  3070. for a straight answer.
  3071.  
  3072. 658
  3073. 00:39:15,242 --> 00:39:17,309
  3074. And yet I practiced
  3075. none of them!
  3076.  
  3077. 659
  3078. 00:39:17,311 --> 00:39:19,077
  3079. Come in.
  3080.  
  3081. 660
  3082. 00:39:19,079 --> 00:39:20,414
  3083. Come in, please.
  3084.  
  3085. 661
  3086. 00:39:25,318 --> 00:39:27,588
  3087. (groaning)
  3088.  
  3089. 662
  3090. 00:39:39,666 --> 00:39:41,603
  3091. (gasps, sighs)
  3092.  
  3093. 663
  3094. 00:39:43,838 --> 00:39:47,175
  3095. You are fettered.
  3096. Why?
  3097.  
  3098. 664
  3099. 00:39:48,643 --> 00:39:51,612
  3100. I wear the chain
  3101. I forged in life.
  3102.  
  3103. 665
  3104. 00:39:54,849 --> 00:39:56,284
  3105. I made it...
  3106.  
  3107. 666
  3108. 00:39:58,286 --> 00:39:59,653
  3109. link by link,
  3110.  
  3111. 667
  3112. 00:40:01,222 --> 00:40:03,191
  3113. yard by yard.
  3114.  
  3115. 668
  3116. 00:40:04,759 --> 00:40:08,463
  3117. And of my own free will,
  3118. I girded it about me.
  3119.  
  3120. 669
  3121. 00:40:09,730 --> 00:40:12,530
  3122. Of my own free will,
  3123.  
  3124. 670
  3125. 00:40:12,532 --> 00:40:14,432
  3126. I wore it.
  3127.  
  3128. 671
  3129. 00:40:14,434 --> 00:40:18,373
  3130. (wheezing groan)
  3131.  
  3132. 672
  3133. 00:40:23,710 --> 00:40:27,415
  3134. Do you know the weight and length
  3135. of the chain you bear yourself?
  3136.  
  3137. 673
  3138. 00:40:29,550 --> 00:40:30,818
  3139. You mean him,
  3140. surely.
  3141.  
  3142. 674
  3143. 00:40:33,353 --> 00:40:35,156
  3144. Mm-mmm.
  3145.  
  3146. 675
  3147. 00:40:36,257 --> 00:40:37,659
  3148. You, Charley.
  3149.  
  3150. 676
  3151. 00:40:40,260 --> 00:40:43,130
  3152. Your chains,
  3153. all around you.
  3154.  
  3155. 677
  3156. 00:40:44,865 --> 00:40:47,335
  3157. Past and present...
  3158.  
  3159. 678
  3160. 00:40:49,137 --> 00:40:50,572
  3161. and what is to come.
  3162.  
  3163. 679
  3164. 00:40:52,472 --> 00:40:55,407
  3165. (screams)
  3166.  
  3167. 680
  3168. 00:40:55,409 --> 00:40:58,776
  3169. Hail to thee,
  3170. blithe turkey,
  3171.  
  3172. 681
  3173. 00:40:58,778 --> 00:41:01,246
  3174. whose exquisite odors
  3175.  
  3176. 682
  3177. 00:41:01,248 --> 00:41:04,349
  3178. now perfume
  3179. the circumambient air.
  3180.  
  3181. 683
  3182. 00:41:04,351 --> 00:41:05,918
  3183. (inhales)
  3184.  
  3185. 684
  3186. 00:41:05,920 --> 00:41:08,720
  3187. And let this day
  3188. be fragrant
  3189.  
  3190. 685
  3191. 00:41:08,722 --> 00:41:12,258
  3192. with the love
  3193. we bear one another.
  3194.  
  3195. 686
  3196. 00:41:12,260 --> 00:41:15,360
  3197. And may God bless us,
  3198. every one.
  3199.  
  3200. 687
  3201. 00:41:15,362 --> 00:41:17,396
  3202. Every one.
  3203.  
  3204. 688
  3205. 00:41:17,398 --> 00:41:19,166
  3206. (clapping)
  3207.  
  3208. 689
  3209. 00:41:22,269 --> 00:41:24,403
  3210. Mr. John Dickens.
  3211.  
  3212. 690
  3213. 00:41:24,405 --> 00:41:27,373
  3214. You're under arrest
  3215. for a debt of 42 pounds.
  3216.  
  3217. 691
  3218. 00:41:27,375 --> 00:41:28,606
  3219. - Father!
  3220. - Charley.
  3221.  
  3222. 692
  3223. 00:41:28,608 --> 00:41:30,744
  3224. Father,
  3225. tell them to stop!
  3226.  
  3227. 693
  3228. 00:41:31,878 --> 00:41:33,445
  3229. Take everything
  3230. that shines, boys.
  3231.  
  3232. 694
  3233. 00:41:33,447 --> 00:41:35,748
  3234. It's all right, Charley.
  3235.  
  3236. 695
  3237. 00:41:35,750 --> 00:41:38,617
  3238. - Tell them to stop, Father!
  3239. - It's all right.
  3240.  
  3241. 696
  3242. 00:41:38,619 --> 00:41:40,822
  3243. Please, Charley,
  3244. don't worry.
  3245.  
  3246. 697
  3247. 00:41:42,389 --> 00:41:43,858
  3248. - (gasps)
  3249. - (accordion squawks)
  3250.  
  3251. 698
  3252. 00:41:46,860 --> 00:41:50,132
  3253. (clock chiming)
  3254.  
  3255. 699
  3256. 00:41:51,298 --> 00:41:53,869
  3257. (children shouting,
  3258. chattering)
  3259.  
  3260. 700
  3261. 00:41:55,503 --> 00:41:57,936
  3262. (Charles) What about Leech
  3263. for the illustrations?
  3264.  
  3265. 701
  3266. 00:41:57,938 --> 00:41:59,637
  3267. (Forster) Leech?
  3268. He's so prickly.
  3269.  
  3270. 702
  3271. 00:41:59,639 --> 00:42:02,541
  3272. - And he's by no means the cheapest.
  3273. - I don't want the cheapest.
  3274.  
  3275. 703
  3276. 00:42:02,543 --> 00:42:05,778
  3277. Oh, Charles, for God's sake, slow down.
  3278. You move at railway speed.
  3279.  
  3280. 704
  3281. 00:42:05,780 --> 00:42:07,746
  3282. I don't want the cheapest.
  3283. I want the best.
  3284.  
  3285. 705
  3286. 00:42:07,748 --> 00:42:09,347
  3287. - It's going well then?
  3288. - What?
  3289.  
  3290. 706
  3291. 00:42:09,349 --> 00:42:11,749
  3292. - The book.
  3293. - It's brilliant. Best thing I've ever written.
  3294.  
  3295. 707
  3296. 00:42:11,751 --> 00:42:13,385
  3297. - What, so you...
  3298. - I've got 11 pages.
  3299.  
  3300. 708
  3301. 00:42:13,387 --> 00:42:15,787
  3302. - Eleven?
  3303. - Well, if it weren't for constant interruptions.
  3304.  
  3305. 709
  3306. 00:42:15,789 --> 00:42:18,990
  3307. We've got my father staying with us. He
  3308. could not have come at a worse time.
  3309.  
  3310. 710
  3311. 00:42:18,992 --> 00:42:20,492
  3312. Oh.
  3313.  
  3314. 711
  3315. 00:42:20,494 --> 00:42:21,896
  3316. Miss Wigmore.
  3317.  
  3318. 712
  3319. 00:42:24,297 --> 00:42:25,764
  3320. Ah.
  3321.  
  3322. 713
  3323. 00:42:25,766 --> 00:42:28,434
  3324. - (sighs)
  3325. - Come.
  3326.  
  3327. 714
  3328. 00:42:28,436 --> 00:42:29,668
  3329. Come along.
  3330.  
  3331. 715
  3332. 00:42:29,670 --> 00:42:32,374
  3333. (woman chattering,
  3334. indistinct)
  3335.  
  3336. 716
  3337. 00:42:34,909 --> 00:42:36,809
  3338. Who was that?
  3339.  
  3340. 717
  3341. 00:42:36,811 --> 00:42:38,811
  3342. - Charlotte.
  3343. - Who?
  3344.  
  3345. 718
  3346. 00:42:38,813 --> 00:42:40,778
  3347. My fiancée.
  3348. I told you.
  3349.  
  3350. 719
  3351. 00:42:40,780 --> 00:42:42,947
  3352. (chuckles)
  3353. Fiancée?
  3354.  
  3355. 720
  3356. 00:42:42,949 --> 00:42:46,318
  3357. - She's a canny lass, is she not?
  3358. - Indeed. Most amiable.
  3359.  
  3360. 721
  3361. 00:42:46,320 --> 00:42:48,287
  3362. Amiable?
  3363.  
  3364. 722
  3365. 00:42:48,289 --> 00:42:51,257
  3366. Why, man, she's an
  3367. angel, a sylph.
  3368.  
  3369. 723
  3370. 00:42:51,259 --> 00:42:53,726
  3371. (sobbing)
  3372. She's a goddess on a...
  3373.  
  3374. 724
  3375. 00:42:53,728 --> 00:42:56,528
  3376. Whatever is the matter?
  3377.  
  3378. 725
  3379. 00:42:56,530 --> 00:42:59,597
  3380. Charlotte and I have come
  3381. to a parting of the ways.
  3382.  
  3383. 726
  3384. 00:42:59,599 --> 00:43:02,034
  3385. - I thought you said you were engaged.
  3386. - We were.
  3387.  
  3388. 727
  3389. 00:43:02,036 --> 00:43:05,273
  3390. But then her father had no intention
  3391. for her to marry the son of a butcher.
  3392.  
  3393. 728
  3394. 00:43:07,275 --> 00:43:08,643
  3395. Here.
  3396.  
  3397. 729
  3398. 00:43:09,777 --> 00:43:11,213
  3399. - (sniffs)
  3400. - (sighs)
  3401.  
  3402. 730
  3403. 00:43:12,780 --> 00:43:14,947
  3404. Perhaps
  3405. it's for the best, eh?
  3406.  
  3407. 731
  3408. 00:43:14,949 --> 00:43:17,686
  3409. The life matrimonial, it's
  3410. not for everyone, old stick.
  3411.  
  3412. 732
  3413. 00:43:19,387 --> 00:43:21,222
  3414. Aye. Aye, no doubt.
  3415.  
  3416. 733
  3417. 00:43:22,422 --> 00:43:23,824
  3418. So... Leech.
  3419.  
  3420. 734
  3421. 00:43:24,791 --> 00:43:26,358
  3422. That's the ticket.
  3423.  
  3424. 735
  3425. 00:43:26,360 --> 00:43:27,825
  3426. Four wood cuts,
  3427. four etchings.
  3428.  
  3429. 736
  3430. 00:43:27,827 --> 00:43:29,394
  3431. The cover in red.
  3432. Hand-colored.
  3433.  
  3434. 737
  3435. 00:43:29,396 --> 00:43:32,298
  3436. The title in rustic,
  3437. spectral writing.
  3438.  
  3439. 738
  3440. 00:43:32,300 --> 00:43:34,432
  3441. The end papers to be green and
  3442. all three edges to be gilded.
  3443.  
  3444. 739
  3445. 00:43:34,434 --> 00:43:37,536
  3446. Gilded?
  3447. It'll cost you.
  3448.  
  3449. 740
  3450. 00:43:37,538 --> 00:43:40,539
  3451. Well, it must be exquisite.
  3452. That's why we came to you.
  3453.  
  3454. 741
  3455. 00:43:40,541 --> 00:43:43,976
  3456. You'll have to sell every
  3457. copy to make your money back.
  3458.  
  3459. 742
  3460. 00:43:43,978 --> 00:43:46,345
  3461. That is my intention.
  3462.  
  3463. 743
  3464. 00:43:46,347 --> 00:43:48,780
  3465. You brought
  3466. the manuscript?
  3467.  
  3468. 744
  3469. 00:43:48,782 --> 00:43:50,648
  3470. (stammers) I'll have
  3471. something for you in a week.
  3472.  
  3473. 745
  3474. 00:43:50,650 --> 00:43:52,450
  3475. - A week?
  3476. - Mmm.
  3477.  
  3478. 746
  3479. 00:43:52,452 --> 00:43:54,820
  3480. That leaves only four weeks
  3481. to do all the illustrations
  3482.  
  3483. 747
  3484. 00:43:54,822 --> 00:43:56,891
  3485. and get it to the printer
  3486. in time for Christmas.
  3487.  
  3488. 748
  3489. 00:43:59,693 --> 00:44:02,927
  3490. - Can you do it?
  3491. - Mr. Dickens, I'm not a hired hand.
  3492.  
  3493. 749
  3494. 00:44:02,929 --> 00:44:05,466
  3495. I am an artist.
  3496.  
  3497. 750
  3498. 00:44:06,766 --> 00:44:08,602
  3499. What you are asking
  3500. is impossible.
  3501.  
  3502. 751
  3503. 00:44:09,836 --> 00:44:12,338
  3504. Impossible
  3505. for an ordinary man.
  3506.  
  3507. 752
  3508. 00:44:12,340 --> 00:44:14,742
  3509. But you are no ordinary man,
  3510. Mr. Leech.
  3511.  
  3512. 753
  3513. 00:44:15,543 --> 00:44:16,878
  3514. You are a genius.
  3515.  
  3516. 754
  3517. 00:44:20,681 --> 00:44:21,715
  3518. Fifty pounds.
  3519.  
  3520. 755
  3521. 00:44:22,650 --> 00:44:24,483
  3522. Paid in advance.
  3523.  
  3524. 756
  3525. 00:44:24,485 --> 00:44:27,021
  3526. Plus more
  3527. for the plates.
  3528.  
  3529. 757
  3530. 00:44:32,659 --> 00:44:35,062
  3531. Done.
  3532. Thank you, Mr. Leech.
  3533.  
  3534. 758
  3535. 00:44:37,731 --> 00:44:40,566
  3536. Look, Charles, I don't want
  3537. to be the voice of doom,
  3538.  
  3539. 759
  3540. 00:44:40,568 --> 00:44:42,934
  3541. but before we lay out
  3542. money for illustrations,
  3543.  
  3544. 760
  3545. 00:44:42,936 --> 00:44:46,373
  3546. we should consider what happens
  3547. if you don't finish on time.
  3548.  
  3549. 761
  3550. 00:44:47,141 --> 00:44:49,010
  3551. I will finish on time.
  3552.  
  3553. 762
  3554. 00:44:50,378 --> 00:44:51,846
  3555. Quite.
  3556.  
  3557. 763
  3558. 00:44:55,483 --> 00:44:58,516
  3559. Mr. Dickens. I fix the chandelier.
  3560. See?
  3561.  
  3562. 764
  3563. 00:44:58,518 --> 00:45:01,487
  3564. Yes. Good.
  3565. Grazie, Signor Mazzini.
  3566.  
  3567. 765
  3568. 00:45:01,489 --> 00:45:03,021
  3569. Is no problem.
  3570.  
  3571. 766
  3572. 00:45:03,023 --> 00:45:06,023
  3573. Only 12 guineas extra.
  3574. (clears throat)
  3575.  
  3576. 767
  3577. 00:45:06,025 --> 00:45:08,494
  3578. Wh... Tw...
  3579.  
  3580. 768
  3581. 00:45:08,496 --> 00:45:11,829
  3582. - (Mr. Dickens laughing)
  3583. - I thought my father was off to the British Library.
  3584.  
  3585. 769
  3586. 00:45:11,831 --> 00:45:14,833
  3587. Your sister's here, sir. Come from
  3588. Manchester with her little boy.
  3589.  
  3590. 770
  3591. 00:45:14,835 --> 00:45:15,936
  3592. Ah.
  3593.  
  3594. 771
  3595. 00:45:17,405 --> 00:45:19,938
  3596. - My dear sister! Ha-ha!
  3597. - Charley.
  3598.  
  3599. 772
  3600. 00:45:19,940 --> 00:45:22,141
  3601. (both laugh)
  3602.  
  3603. 773
  3604. 00:45:22,143 --> 00:45:23,742
  3605. Henry, how are you?
  3606.  
  3607. 774
  3608. 00:45:23,744 --> 00:45:25,878
  3609. Very well,
  3610. grace be to God.
  3611.  
  3612. 775
  3613. 00:45:25,880 --> 00:45:28,914
  3614. This cannot be young Master Henry.
  3615. I barely recognize you.
  3616.  
  3617. 776
  3618. 00:45:28,916 --> 00:45:31,483
  3619. - How old are you now?
  3620. - Nine, if you please, sir.
  3621.  
  3622. 777
  3623. 00:45:31,485 --> 00:45:33,918
  3624. Nine? I shall soon
  3625. run out of fingers.
  3626.  
  3627. 778
  3628. 00:45:33,920 --> 00:45:36,957
  3629. - (laughs)
  3630. - (Henry coughing)
  3631.  
  3632. 779
  3633. 00:45:39,793 --> 00:45:41,693
  3634. Excuse me, sir.
  3635.  
  3636. 780
  3637. 00:45:41,695 --> 00:45:44,829
  3638. The children are having their
  3639. tea in the dining room.
  3640.  
  3641. 781
  3642. 00:45:44,831 --> 00:45:46,701
  3643. Come on then, young 'un.
  3644. Up!
  3645.  
  3646. 782
  3647. 00:45:52,072 --> 00:45:53,575
  3648. Mind your head.
  3649.  
  3650. 783
  3651. 00:45:54,842 --> 00:45:56,874
  3652. There goes my heart.
  3653.  
  3654. 784
  3655. 00:45:56,876 --> 00:45:59,010
  3656. What did
  3657. the doctor say?
  3658.  
  3659. 785
  3660. 00:45:59,012 --> 00:46:00,848
  3661. He says we have to
  3662. wait and see.
  3663.  
  3664. 786
  3665. 00:46:01,849 --> 00:46:03,715
  3666. Won't you
  3667. let us help?
  3668.  
  3669. 787
  3670. 00:46:03,717 --> 00:46:06,552
  3671. - We'll manage.
  3672. - At least until Henry finds a new position.
  3673.  
  3674. 788
  3675. 00:46:06,554 --> 00:46:08,854
  3676. Something will come up.
  3677. I'm sure of it.
  3678.  
  3679. 789
  3680. 00:46:08,856 --> 00:46:11,190
  3681. You sound
  3682. just like Father.
  3683.  
  3684. 790
  3685. 00:46:11,192 --> 00:46:13,925
  3686. - How is the old reprobate?
  3687. - (sighs)
  3688.  
  3689. 791
  3690. 00:46:13,927 --> 00:46:17,662
  3691. "This morning I had 25 shillings in my
  3692. hand. And now, observe the vacancy."
  3693.  
  3694. 792
  3695. 00:46:17,664 --> 00:46:19,630
  3696. He means no harm.
  3697.  
  3698. 793
  3699. 00:46:19,632 --> 00:46:23,501
  3700. It's not enough. He bobs around
  3701. like a cork on the surface of life.
  3702.  
  3703. 794
  3704. 00:46:23,503 --> 00:46:25,670
  3705. - Not a thought for the future.
  3706. - Oh, Charley.
  3707.  
  3708. 795
  3709. 00:46:25,672 --> 00:46:28,507
  3710. Let it go, can't you?
  3711.  
  3712. 796
  3713. 00:46:28,509 --> 00:46:32,478
  3714. (Mr. Dickens) Come on, me army!
  3715. Me landlubbers, me lovelies!
  3716.  
  3717. 797
  3718. 00:46:32,480 --> 00:46:36,248
  3719. Oh! Up we go.
  3720. Ha-ha! Me landlubbers!
  3721.  
  3722. 798
  3723. 00:46:36,250 --> 00:46:40,586
  3724. Come aboard my ship!
  3725. Here we go! Let's set sail!
  3726.  
  3727. 799
  3728. 00:46:40,588 --> 00:46:43,921
  3729. Brail your capstan bar!
  3730. Come here, Walter.
  3731.  
  3732. 800
  3733. 00:46:43,923 --> 00:46:46,825
  3734. - Brail your capstan bar!
  3735. - No one is useless in this world...
  3736.  
  3737. 801
  3738. 00:46:46,827 --> 00:46:49,961
  3739. Who lightens the burden
  3740. of another. I know.
  3741.  
  3742. 802
  3743. 00:46:49,963 --> 00:46:54,199
  3744. - For all his faults, you won't find a kinder man.
  3745. - (grumbles)
  3746.  
  3747. 803
  3748. 00:46:54,201 --> 00:46:56,934
  3749. How long he is
  3750. growing up to be one.
  3751.  
  3752. 804
  3753. 00:46:56,936 --> 00:47:00,171
  3754. (Mr. Dickens
  3755. continues shouting)
  3756.  
  3757. 805
  3758. 00:47:00,173 --> 00:47:02,811
  3759. Here we go!
  3760. Full sail ahead!
  3761.  
  3762. 806
  3763. 00:47:11,952 --> 00:47:13,719
  3764. (whispering)
  3765. Why are you here?
  3766.  
  3767. 807
  3768. 00:47:13,721 --> 00:47:17,224
  3769. You'd better come and see
  3770. who's just turned up.
  3771.  
  3772. 808
  3773. 00:47:23,597 --> 00:47:24,932
  3774. Charles?
  3775.  
  3776. 809
  3777. 00:47:27,268 --> 00:47:29,967
  3778. Just a bit of indigestion.
  3779. Go back to sleep.
  3780.  
  3781. 810
  3782. 00:47:29,969 --> 00:47:31,472
  3783. Mmm.
  3784.  
  3785. 811
  3786. 00:47:49,722 --> 00:47:52,124
  3787. Tell him who you are.
  3788.  
  3789. 812
  3790. 00:47:52,126 --> 00:47:54,963
  3791. I am the Ghost
  3792. of Christmas Past.
  3793.  
  3794. 813
  3795. 00:47:58,097 --> 00:47:59,831
  3796. Follow.
  3797.  
  3798. 814
  3799. 00:47:59,833 --> 00:48:02,833
  3800. Not bloody likely.
  3801.  
  3802. 815
  3803. 00:48:02,835 --> 00:48:06,137
  3804. - Why not?
  3805. - Mucking around in the past? What's the point?
  3806.  
  3807. 816
  3808. 00:48:06,139 --> 00:48:07,905
  3809. You might learn something.
  3810.  
  3811. 817
  3812. 00:48:07,907 --> 00:48:10,775
  3813. Well, I already know
  3814. everything I need to know.
  3815.  
  3816. 818
  3817. 00:48:10,777 --> 00:48:13,744
  3818. - Uh, take him, why don't you?
  3819. - Me?
  3820.  
  3821. 819
  3822. 00:48:13,746 --> 00:48:16,315
  3823. - Yes, if you're so keen.
  3824. - It's not about me!
  3825.  
  3826. 820
  3827. 00:48:16,317 --> 00:48:19,253
  3828. Well, you're the author,
  3829. aren't you?
  3830.  
  3831. 821
  3832. 00:48:23,657 --> 00:48:24,992
  3833. Follow.
  3834.  
  3835. 822
  3836. 00:48:26,893 --> 00:48:30,996
  3837. Don't cry. We'll be back
  3838. when the debt's paid.
  3839.  
  3840. 823
  3841. 00:48:30,998 --> 00:48:35,099
  3842. - Why can't I stay with you?
  3843. - You're a big boy, Charley.
  3844.  
  3845. 824
  3846. 00:48:35,101 --> 00:48:37,034
  3847. You're the breadwinner now.
  3848.  
  3849. 825
  3850. 00:48:37,036 --> 00:48:40,738
  3851. You'll see.
  3852. It'll be an adventure.
  3853.  
  3854. 826
  3855. 00:48:40,740 --> 00:48:42,911
  3856. - You'll hardly think of us at all.
  3857. - (sobbing quietly)
  3858.  
  3859. 827
  3860. 00:48:44,811 --> 00:48:47,179
  3861. - (banging on wagon)
  3862. - (man) Time to go!
  3863.  
  3864. 828
  3865. 00:48:47,181 --> 00:48:49,213
  3866. Now, sir,
  3867. enough of that.
  3868.  
  3869. 829
  3870. 00:48:49,215 --> 00:48:51,083
  3871. Stand up tall.
  3872.  
  3873. 830
  3874. 00:48:51,085 --> 00:48:53,050
  3875. Blood of iron,
  3876. heart of ice.
  3877.  
  3878. 831
  3879. 00:48:53,052 --> 00:48:55,086
  3880. - Huh?
  3881. - (whip cracks)
  3882.  
  3883. 832
  3884. 00:48:55,088 --> 00:48:57,025
  3885. - (horse whinnies)
  3886. - And remember!
  3887.  
  3888. 833
  3889. 00:48:58,257 --> 00:49:00,358
  3890. You're the son
  3891. of John Dickens!
  3892.  
  3893. 834
  3894. 00:49:00,360 --> 00:49:02,159
  3895. A gentleman!
  3896.  
  3897. 835
  3898. 00:49:02,161 --> 00:49:04,164
  3899. You be sure
  3900. and tell them that!
  3901.  
  3902. 836
  3903. 00:49:15,675 --> 00:49:16,777
  3904. Well, come on then!
  3905.  
  3906. 837
  3907. 00:49:18,846 --> 00:49:20,778
  3908. Blood of iron,
  3909.  
  3910. 838
  3911. 00:49:20,780 --> 00:49:22,182
  3912. heart of ice.
  3913.  
  3914. 839
  3915. 00:49:27,186 --> 00:49:29,420
  3916. (gasps)
  3917.  
  3918. 840
  3919. 00:49:29,422 --> 00:49:32,157
  3920. - Good morning.
  3921. - What? Oh.
  3922.  
  3923. 841
  3924. 00:49:32,159 --> 00:49:34,392
  3925. You were tossing and turning
  3926. all night, you know.
  3927.  
  3928. 842
  3929. 00:49:34,394 --> 00:49:36,130
  3930. Yes. Bad dreams.
  3931.  
  3932. 843
  3933. 00:49:37,030 --> 00:49:39,331
  3934. What about?
  3935.  
  3936. 844
  3937. 00:49:39,333 --> 00:49:42,202
  3938. I don't know. Shadows.
  3939.  
  3940. 845
  3941. 00:49:43,836 --> 00:49:45,269
  3942. Well...
  3943.  
  3944. 846
  3945. 00:49:45,271 --> 00:49:47,371
  3946. a little daylight
  3947. will cure you.
  3948.  
  3949. 847
  3950. 00:49:47,373 --> 00:49:49,206
  3951. (cackling)
  3952. Now, Constable,
  3953.  
  3954. 848
  3955. 00:49:49,208 --> 00:49:52,043
  3956. shall we ask Mr. Punch where
  3957. the baby's daddy's gone?
  3958.  
  3959. 849
  3960. 00:49:52,045 --> 00:49:53,845
  3961. I bet he knows.
  3962.  
  3963. 850
  3964. 00:49:53,847 --> 00:49:57,349
  3965. - Oh! Where's the baby's daddy gone?
  3966. - Where's he gone, Mr. Punch?
  3967.  
  3968. 851
  3969. 00:49:57,351 --> 00:49:59,885
  3970. (Mr. Punch) Daddy's off to prison!
  3971. (cackling)
  3972.  
  3973. 852
  3974. 00:49:59,887 --> 00:50:02,019
  3975. (Judy)
  3976. Off to prison? Oh-ho!
  3977.  
  3978. 853
  3979. 00:50:02,021 --> 00:50:05,057
  3980. Come on. We're wasting time.
  3981. Let's get to work.
  3982.  
  3983. 854
  3984. 00:50:05,059 --> 00:50:06,891
  3985. I am working.
  3986.  
  3987. 855
  3988. 00:50:06,893 --> 00:50:09,927
  3989. - Here?
  3990. - Yes. Gathering inspiration.
  3991.  
  3992. 856
  3993. 00:50:09,929 --> 00:50:12,097
  3994. (chuckling)
  3995. Gathering what?
  3996.  
  3997. 857
  3998. 00:50:12,099 --> 00:50:16,200
  3999. - What do you see when you look around?
  4000. - Well, it's a market, you idiot.
  4001.  
  4002. 858
  4003. 00:50:16,202 --> 00:50:17,969
  4004. What else?
  4005.  
  4006. 859
  4007. 00:50:17,971 --> 00:50:21,238
  4008. Hot pies!
  4009. Eel, beef or mutton pies!
  4010.  
  4011. 860
  4012. 00:50:21,240 --> 00:50:23,378
  4013. - Buyers and sellers.
  4014. - What else?
  4015.  
  4016. 861
  4017. 00:50:25,244 --> 00:50:27,445
  4018. Never say die.
  4019. Have a look, sir.
  4020.  
  4021. 862
  4022. 00:50:27,447 --> 00:50:29,046
  4023. (Scrooge)
  4024. Thieves and ruffians.
  4025.  
  4026. 863
  4027. 00:50:29,048 --> 00:50:31,749
  4028. Highly interesting murder,
  4029. gentlemen!
  4030.  
  4031. 864
  4032. 00:50:31,751 --> 00:50:34,286
  4033. (man) Hold! Hold!
  4034.  
  4035. 865
  4036. 00:50:34,288 --> 00:50:36,987
  4037. Clear the way!
  4038. Clear the way, lads!
  4039.  
  4040. 866
  4041. 00:50:36,989 --> 00:50:38,990
  4042. - (laughing)
  4043. - Mr. Fezziwig!
  4044.  
  4045. 867
  4046. 00:50:38,992 --> 00:50:41,863
  4047. - (laughing)
  4048. - (fiddle playing)
  4049.  
  4050. 868
  4051. 00:50:45,965 --> 00:50:47,798
  4052. Life, Mr. Scrooge.
  4053.  
  4054. 869
  4055. 00:50:47,800 --> 00:50:50,168
  4056. It's London. The great
  4057. theater of the world.
  4058.  
  4059. 870
  4060. 00:50:50,170 --> 00:50:52,436
  4061. - It's all here.
  4062. - Bah. Humbug!
  4063.  
  4064. 871
  4065. 00:50:52,438 --> 00:50:55,507
  4066. I'm a man of facts,
  4067. of calculations.
  4068.  
  4069. 872
  4070. 00:50:55,509 --> 00:50:57,943
  4071. Realities, not fancy.
  4072.  
  4073. 873
  4074. 00:50:57,945 --> 00:50:59,447
  4075. What the devil is that?
  4076.  
  4077. 874
  4078. 00:51:00,748 --> 00:51:02,016
  4079. Here you go, sir.
  4080.  
  4081. 875
  4082. 00:51:11,492 --> 00:51:13,992
  4083. - Must go.
  4084. - Where to?
  4085.  
  4086. 876
  4087. 00:51:13,994 --> 00:51:15,229
  4088. It's time to write.
  4089.  
  4090. 877
  4091. 00:51:16,463 --> 00:51:19,400
  4092. - (laughing)
  4093. - (fiddle continues playing)
  4094.  
  4095. 878
  4096. 00:51:24,204 --> 00:51:26,470
  4097. - Come along.
  4098. - Good night, children!
  4099.  
  4100. 879
  4101. 00:51:26,472 --> 00:51:29,143
  4102. Bye! Shoo!
  4103. (laughs)
  4104.  
  4105. 880
  4106. 00:51:31,478 --> 00:51:33,047
  4107. (exhales)
  4108.  
  4109. 881
  4110. 00:51:34,782 --> 00:51:38,550
  4111. Well, looks as though Charles
  4112. won't be joining us. Again.
  4113.  
  4114. 882
  4115. 00:51:38,552 --> 00:51:40,519
  4116. - We may as well start.
  4117. - Oh.
  4118.  
  4119. 883
  4120. 00:51:40,521 --> 00:51:42,787
  4121. Ah, the parties.
  4122.  
  4123. 884
  4124. 00:51:42,789 --> 00:51:44,923
  4125. We used to keep such hours.
  4126.  
  4127. 885
  4128. 00:51:44,925 --> 00:51:47,858
  4129. Balls, dinners, champagne.
  4130.  
  4131. 886
  4132. 00:51:47,860 --> 00:51:50,028
  4133. First-rate capon,
  4134. Mrs. Fisk.
  4135.  
  4136. 887
  4137. 00:51:50,030 --> 00:51:52,798
  4138. Oh, thank you, sir.
  4139. I'll let the cook know.
  4140.  
  4141. 888
  4142. 00:51:52,800 --> 00:51:55,333
  4143. And the chairs
  4144. had turned legs,
  4145.  
  4146. 889
  4147. 00:51:55,335 --> 00:51:58,135
  4148. with green squabs
  4149. to match the curtains.
  4150.  
  4151. 890
  4152. 00:51:58,137 --> 00:52:00,005
  4153. What was that story,
  4154. Mother?
  4155.  
  4156. 891
  4157. 00:52:00,007 --> 00:52:04,075
  4158. Oh, I was just telling Kate about the
  4159. dining room set we used to have.
  4160.  
  4161. 892
  4162. 00:52:04,077 --> 00:52:07,512
  4163. Rosewood.
  4164. In the most approved taste.
  4165.  
  4166. 893
  4167. 00:52:07,514 --> 00:52:09,914
  4168. You mean the one
  4169. we pawned?
  4170.  
  4171. 894
  4172. 00:52:09,916 --> 00:52:11,449
  4173. Oh! (laughs)
  4174.  
  4175. 895
  4176. 00:52:11,451 --> 00:52:16,086
  4177. Charles! (laughs)
  4178. You are a satirical monster.
  4179.  
  4180. 896
  4181. 00:52:16,088 --> 00:52:18,255
  4182. - Is that a joke, Charles?
  4183. - Not a very amusing one.
  4184.  
  4185. 897
  4186. 00:52:18,257 --> 00:52:20,025
  4187. Is that a new waistcoat,
  4188. Father?
  4189.  
  4190. 898
  4191. 00:52:20,027 --> 00:52:25,229
  4192. What? Oh, yes. It's Persian crimson.
  4193. A little more expensive.
  4194.  
  4195. 899
  4196. 00:52:25,231 --> 00:52:28,532
  4197. But as I always say, people
  4198. will believe anything
  4199.  
  4200. 900
  4201. 00:52:28,534 --> 00:52:30,467
  4202. if you are properly dressed.
  4203.  
  4204. 901
  4205. 00:52:30,469 --> 00:52:33,905
  4206. Kate, will you ask Tara to bring
  4207. a tray up with something on it?
  4208.  
  4209. 902
  4210. 00:52:33,907 --> 00:52:36,842
  4211. - I'll bring it up.
  4212. - No. I need Tara to do it.
  4213.  
  4214. 903
  4215. 00:52:36,844 --> 00:52:39,577
  4216. I'll get her, sir.
  4217. Tara!
  4218.  
  4219. 904
  4220. 00:52:39,579 --> 00:52:42,414
  4221. (Mr. Dickens) That's the
  4222. spirit, my boy. Hmm?
  4223.  
  4224. 905
  4225. 00:52:42,416 --> 00:52:45,983
  4226. Procrastination is the thief of
  4227. time, eh, Charles? (chuckling)
  4228.  
  4229. 906
  4230. 00:52:45,985 --> 00:52:47,954
  4231. Collar him!
  4232.  
  4233. 907
  4234. 00:52:52,458 --> 00:52:54,291
  4235. We must not
  4236. disturb the poet
  4237.  
  4238. 908
  4239. 00:52:54,293 --> 00:52:56,628
  4240. when the divine frenzy
  4241. is upon him.
  4242.  
  4243. 909
  4244. 00:52:56,630 --> 00:52:58,630
  4245. (chuckles)
  4246.  
  4247. 910
  4248. 00:52:58,632 --> 00:53:00,534
  4249. Hmm.
  4250.  
  4251. 911
  4252. 00:53:10,210 --> 00:53:12,146
  4253. Know the place?
  4254.  
  4255. 912
  4256. 00:53:14,981 --> 00:53:17,018
  4257. Was I apprenticed here?
  4258.  
  4259. 913
  4260. 00:53:18,652 --> 00:53:22,519
  4261. Clear the way, lads! Clear the way.
  4262. It's Friday night.
  4263.  
  4264. 914
  4265. 00:53:22,521 --> 00:53:25,990
  4266. - Why, it's old Fezziwig.
  4267. - (fiddle: jig)
  4268.  
  4269. 915
  4270. 00:53:25,992 --> 00:53:27,594
  4271. (laughing)
  4272.  
  4273. 916
  4274. 00:53:31,331 --> 00:53:33,334
  4275. - (knocking)
  4276. - (fiddle stops)
  4277.  
  4278. 917
  4279. 00:53:34,434 --> 00:53:36,070
  4280. (sighs)
  4281.  
  4282. 918
  4283. 00:53:37,271 --> 00:53:39,271
  4284. Who is it?
  4285.  
  4286. 919
  4287. 00:53:39,273 --> 00:53:41,309
  4288. It's Tara, sir,
  4289. with your dinner.
  4290.  
  4291. 920
  4292. 00:53:48,315 --> 00:53:50,050
  4293. Tara.
  4294. Come in. Come in.
  4295.  
  4296. 921
  4297. 00:53:51,918 --> 00:53:53,621
  4298. Close the door.
  4299.  
  4300. 922
  4301. 00:53:56,123 --> 00:53:57,988
  4302. Sit. I want to
  4303. read you something.
  4304.  
  4305. 923
  4306. 00:53:57,990 --> 00:53:59,990
  4307. Oh... Oh, I... I don't think Mrs.
  4308. Fisk would...
  4309.  
  4310. 924
  4311. 00:53:59,992 --> 00:54:02,693
  4312. Ah! Skittleshins
  4313. to Mrs. Fisk.
  4314.  
  4315. 925
  4316. 00:54:02,695 --> 00:54:04,628
  4317. Come. Sit.
  4318.  
  4319. 926
  4320. 00:54:04,630 --> 00:54:07,565
  4321. (humming)
  4322.  
  4323. 927
  4324. 00:54:07,567 --> 00:54:09,700
  4325. Now, since you
  4326. like ghost stories,
  4327.  
  4328. 928
  4329. 00:54:09,702 --> 00:54:12,505
  4330. see if this can rival
  4331. Varney the Vampire.
  4332.  
  4333. 929
  4334. 00:54:15,275 --> 00:54:17,409
  4335. (Charles)
  4336. "With cherry-cheeked apples,
  4337.  
  4338. 930
  4339. 00:54:17,411 --> 00:54:20,679
  4340. juicy oranges,
  4341. luscious pears,
  4342.  
  4343. 931
  4344. 00:54:20,681 --> 00:54:23,715
  4345. immense Twelfth cakes
  4346. and seething bowls of punch
  4347.  
  4348. 932
  4349. 00:54:23,717 --> 00:54:27,184
  4350. that made the chamber dim
  4351. with their delicious steam.
  4352.  
  4353. 933
  4354. 00:54:27,186 --> 00:54:31,322
  4355. In easy state, upon this couch,
  4356. there sat a jolly giant..."
  4357.  
  4358. 934
  4359. 00:54:31,324 --> 00:54:33,590
  4360. - The second ghost.
  4361. - The second ghost.
  4362.  
  4363. 935
  4364. 00:54:33,592 --> 00:54:36,529
  4365. (laughter)
  4366.  
  4367. 936
  4368. 00:54:39,132 --> 00:54:42,032
  4369. I am the Ghost
  4370. of Christmas Present.
  4371.  
  4372. 937
  4373. 00:54:42,034 --> 00:54:46,737
  4374. These are the gifts
  4375. of abundance, goodwill,
  4376.  
  4377. 938
  4378. 00:54:46,739 --> 00:54:48,405
  4379. and of generosity.
  4380.  
  4381. 939
  4382. 00:54:48,407 --> 00:54:50,240
  4383. Uh-huh.
  4384.  
  4385. 940
  4386. 00:54:50,242 --> 00:54:53,345
  4387. Of course, you wouldn't understand
  4388. much about that, would you?
  4389.  
  4390. 941
  4391. 00:54:53,347 --> 00:54:55,082
  4392. Unlike these good people.
  4393.  
  4394. 942
  4395. 00:54:57,617 --> 00:55:00,719
  4396. My dear Mrs. Cratchit, you have
  4397. outdone yourself this year.
  4398.  
  4399. 943
  4400. 00:55:00,721 --> 00:55:03,054
  4401. Oh, everyone pitched in.
  4402. Even Tim.
  4403.  
  4404. 944
  4405. 00:55:03,056 --> 00:55:05,358
  4406. - I set the table.
  4407. - (laughing) Yes, you did.
  4408.  
  4409. 945
  4410. 00:55:08,027 --> 00:55:10,662
  4411. I didn't know Cratchit
  4412. had a crippled son.
  4413.  
  4414. 946
  4415. 00:55:10,664 --> 00:55:12,363
  4416. Didn't you ever think
  4417. to ask?
  4418.  
  4419. 947
  4420. 00:55:12,365 --> 00:55:15,266
  4421. A merry Christmas
  4422. to us all, my dears.
  4423.  
  4424. 948
  4425. 00:55:15,268 --> 00:55:18,139
  4426. - And may God bless us.
  4427. - God bless us, every one.
  4428.  
  4429. 949
  4430. 00:55:20,039 --> 00:55:23,240
  4431. He's my clerk. I don't pay him to
  4432. tell me about his personal life.
  4433.  
  4434. 950
  4435. 00:55:23,242 --> 00:55:25,642
  4436. - You hardly pay him at all.
  4437. - Fifteen shillings a week.
  4438.  
  4439. 951
  4440. 00:55:25,644 --> 00:55:28,545
  4441. For a man with a family,
  4442. not to mention a sick child?
  4443.  
  4444. 952
  4445. 00:55:28,547 --> 00:55:31,017
  4446. (coughing)
  4447.  
  4448. 953
  4449. 00:55:32,485 --> 00:55:34,454
  4450. That's the market rate.
  4451.  
  4452. 954
  4453. 00:55:36,123 --> 00:55:39,090
  4454. Do you really believe
  4455. that every inch of existence
  4456.  
  4457. 955
  4458. 00:55:39,092 --> 00:55:41,492
  4459. is a bargain
  4460. across the counter?
  4461.  
  4462. 956
  4463. 00:55:41,494 --> 00:55:43,494
  4464. Observe this family.
  4465.  
  4466. 957
  4467. 00:55:43,496 --> 00:55:48,099
  4468. They don't have much, but they're happy,
  4469. grateful, contented with their lot.
  4470.  
  4471. 958
  4472. 00:55:48,101 --> 00:55:52,237
  4473. Whereas you are miserable
  4474. and content with nothing.
  4475.  
  4476. 959
  4477. 00:55:52,239 --> 00:55:54,738
  4478. Never heard such folly.
  4479.  
  4480. 960
  4481. 00:55:54,740 --> 00:55:57,677
  4482. (bell tolls)
  4483.  
  4484. 961
  4485. 00:55:58,811 --> 00:56:01,315
  4486. Heed well what I've said.
  4487.  
  4488. 962
  4489. 00:56:02,416 --> 00:56:04,182
  4490. Farewell.
  4491.  
  4492. 963
  4493. 00:56:04,184 --> 00:56:06,187
  4494. (Charles)
  4495. And... intermission!
  4496.  
  4497. 964
  4498. 00:56:07,820 --> 00:56:10,789
  4499. - Thrilling performance.
  4500. - That's very kind. Thank you.
  4501.  
  4502. 965
  4503. 00:56:10,791 --> 00:56:13,995
  4504. And that is as far
  4505. as I've got.
  4506.  
  4507. 966
  4508. 00:56:19,365 --> 00:56:20,831
  4509. - Tara.
  4510. - Hmm?
  4511.  
  4512. 967
  4513. 00:56:20,833 --> 00:56:22,666
  4514. (chuckles)
  4515.  
  4516. 968
  4517. 00:56:22,668 --> 00:56:25,403
  4518. - How do you do that, sir?
  4519. - Do what?
  4520.  
  4521. 969
  4522. 00:56:25,405 --> 00:56:27,572
  4523. Make a world come alive.
  4524.  
  4525. 970
  4526. 00:56:27,574 --> 00:56:30,211
  4527. I could almost see
  4528. and hear them people.
  4529.  
  4530. 971
  4531. 00:56:31,844 --> 00:56:34,311
  4532. Especially that Tiny Tim.
  4533.  
  4534. 972
  4535. 00:56:34,313 --> 00:56:35,782
  4536. Poor mite.
  4537.  
  4538. 973
  4539. 00:56:45,759 --> 00:56:48,492
  4540. Um... (clears throat)
  4541. A word in your ear.
  4542.  
  4543. 974
  4544. 00:56:48,494 --> 00:56:52,130
  4545. - About what?
  4546. - The scene.
  4547.  
  4548. 975
  4549. 00:56:52,132 --> 00:56:55,867
  4550. - It's very one-sided.
  4551. - What? One-sided?
  4552.  
  4553. 976
  4554. 00:56:55,869 --> 00:56:58,506
  4555. Well, my character doesn't get
  4556. to explain his side of things.
  4557.  
  4558. 977
  4559. 00:57:00,773 --> 00:57:03,708
  4560. - So I've taken the liberty of writing a short speech.
  4561. - No.
  4562.  
  4563. 978
  4564. 00:57:03,710 --> 00:57:06,778
  4565. - Something about the rational self-interest...
  4566. - (sighs)
  4567.  
  4568. 979
  4569. 00:57:06,780 --> 00:57:08,780
  4570. and the natural tendencies
  4571. of free markets...
  4572.  
  4573. 980
  4574. 00:57:08,782 --> 00:57:11,318
  4575. No. No. And no.
  4576.  
  4577. 981
  4578. 00:57:13,286 --> 00:57:15,153
  4579. Well, what sort of book
  4580. is this anyway?
  4581.  
  4582. 982
  4583. 00:57:15,155 --> 00:57:16,487
  4584. (angry grunt)
  4585.  
  4586. 983
  4587. 00:57:16,489 --> 00:57:19,624
  4588. No! It's too... Ew.
  4589. It's too gloomy.
  4590.  
  4591. 984
  4592. 00:57:19,626 --> 00:57:21,793
  4593. The Ghost of Christmas
  4594. Present should be wonderful.
  4595.  
  4596. 985
  4597. 00:57:21,795 --> 00:57:23,862
  4598. Warm, jolly!
  4599.  
  4600. 986
  4601. 00:57:23,864 --> 00:57:25,796
  4602. - Jolly?
  4603. - Yes!
  4604.  
  4605. 987
  4606. 00:57:25,798 --> 00:57:27,632
  4607. A jolly ghost?
  4608.  
  4609. 988
  4610. 00:57:27,634 --> 00:57:29,135
  4611. That's it.
  4612.  
  4613. 989
  4614. 00:57:39,846 --> 00:57:42,313
  4615. - What's this?
  4616. - Find another artist.
  4617.  
  4618. 990
  4619. 00:57:42,315 --> 00:57:44,315
  4620. We don't want
  4621. another artist.
  4622.  
  4623. 991
  4624. 00:57:44,317 --> 00:57:48,586
  4625. A jolly Christmas ghost?
  4626. What's that mean?
  4627.  
  4628. 992
  4629. 00:57:48,588 --> 00:57:52,490
  4630. I can't draw
  4631. what I don't understand.
  4632.  
  4633. 993
  4634. 00:57:52,492 --> 00:57:56,360
  4635. Well, it is everything
  4636. that's best about Christmas.
  4637.  
  4638. 994
  4639. 00:57:56,362 --> 00:58:01,167
  4640. He's the soul of kindness
  4641. and generosity. He's...
  4642.  
  4643. 995
  4644. 00:58:02,434 --> 00:58:04,369
  4645. Well, he's Forster.
  4646.  
  4647. 996
  4648. 00:58:04,371 --> 00:58:05,936
  4649. Eh?
  4650.  
  4651. 997
  4652. 00:58:05,938 --> 00:58:08,208
  4653. With a beard.
  4654.  
  4655. 998
  4656. 00:58:12,512 --> 00:58:13,847
  4657. Come on. Jolly.
  4658.  
  4659. 999
  4660. 00:58:41,942 --> 00:58:44,878
  4661. (women shouting)
  4662.  
  4663. 1000
  4664. 00:58:55,922 --> 00:58:58,856
  4665. In shops by Christmas?
  4666.  
  4667. 1001
  4668. 00:58:58,858 --> 00:59:00,657
  4669. That'll be a miracle.
  4670.  
  4671. 1002
  4672. 00:59:00,659 --> 00:59:02,594
  4673. Go away.
  4674.  
  4675. 1003
  4676. 00:59:02,596 --> 00:59:06,766
  4677. Three flops in a row.
  4678. Up to your eyeballs in debt.
  4679.  
  4680. 1004
  4681. 00:59:08,268 --> 00:59:10,534
  4682. I'd think you'd be glad
  4683. of some advice.
  4684.  
  4685. 1005
  4686. 00:59:10,536 --> 00:59:13,237
  4687. So, you've had a few flops.
  4688. What of it?
  4689.  
  4690. 1006
  4691. 00:59:13,239 --> 00:59:16,340
  4692. You're still young. It's not
  4693. as if you're an old man.
  4694.  
  4695. 1007
  4696. 00:59:16,342 --> 00:59:18,378
  4697. - (groans)
  4698. - You've still got lots of time to be...
  4699.  
  4700. 1008
  4701. 00:59:35,527 --> 00:59:37,297
  4702. (bell tolls)
  4703.  
  4704. 1009
  4705. 00:59:39,532 --> 00:59:41,268
  4706. (bell tolls)
  4707.  
  4708. 1010
  4709. 00:59:43,637 --> 00:59:45,403
  4710. (bell tolls)
  4711.  
  4712. 1011
  4713. 00:59:45,405 --> 00:59:48,539
  4714. Are we in the presence of the
  4715. Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come?
  4716.  
  4717. 1012
  4718. 00:59:48,541 --> 00:59:51,409
  4719. (rumbling)
  4720.  
  4721. 1013
  4722. 00:59:51,411 --> 00:59:53,280
  4723. - Why doesn't he speak?
  4724. - Shh!
  4725.  
  4726. 1014
  4727. 00:59:57,583 --> 01:00:01,985
  4728. You are here to show us the shadows
  4729. of the things that have not been,
  4730.  
  4731. 1015
  4732. 01:00:01,987 --> 01:00:04,389
  4733. but will happen,
  4734. in the time before us.
  4735.  
  4736. 1016
  4737. 01:00:04,391 --> 01:00:05,693
  4738. Is that so?
  4739.  
  4740. 1017
  4741. 01:00:17,603 --> 01:00:19,336
  4742. (Scrooge) Where does
  4743. it want us to go?
  4744.  
  4745. 1018
  4746. 01:00:19,338 --> 01:00:21,241
  4747. I think I know.
  4748.  
  4749. 1019
  4750. 01:00:25,311 --> 01:00:27,981
  4751. I have a bad feeling
  4752. about this. I...
  4753.  
  4754. 1020
  4755. 01:00:34,788 --> 01:00:38,389
  4756. (Charles) And then they entered
  4757. poor Bob Cratchit's house
  4758.  
  4759. 1021
  4760. 01:00:38,391 --> 01:00:40,791
  4761. and found the mother and the
  4762. children round the fire.
  4763.  
  4764. 1022
  4765. 01:00:40,793 --> 01:00:43,864
  4766. (quiet sobbing)
  4767.  
  4768. 1023
  4769. 01:00:45,532 --> 01:00:46,831
  4770. It's okay.
  4771. It's okay.
  4772.  
  4773. 1024
  4774. 01:00:46,833 --> 01:00:48,735
  4775. Then Bob came in the door.
  4776.  
  4777. 1025
  4778. 01:00:51,471 --> 01:00:52,706
  4779. (door closes)
  4780.  
  4781. 1026
  4782. 01:00:57,110 --> 01:00:58,809
  4783. You went today then,
  4784. Robert?
  4785.  
  4786. 1027
  4787. 01:00:58,811 --> 01:01:01,047
  4788. To the cemetery?
  4789.  
  4790. 1028
  4791. 01:01:02,414 --> 01:01:04,449
  4792. Yes, my dear.
  4793.  
  4794. 1029
  4795. 01:01:04,451 --> 01:01:09,820
  4796. I wish you could have gone
  4797. to see how green a place it is.
  4798.  
  4799. 1030
  4800. 01:01:09,822 --> 01:01:11,988
  4801. But you'll see it often.
  4802.  
  4803. 1031
  4804. 01:01:11,990 --> 01:01:16,764
  4805. I promised him that I would
  4806. take a walk there on a Sunday.
  4807.  
  4808. 1032
  4809. 01:01:18,998 --> 01:01:20,567
  4810. (sobbing resumes)
  4811.  
  4812. 1033
  4813. 01:01:22,469 --> 01:01:24,371
  4814. My little child.
  4815.  
  4816. 1034
  4817. 01:01:28,474 --> 01:01:30,007
  4818. - My little, little child.
  4819. - "...little child."
  4820.  
  4821. 1035
  4822. 01:01:30,009 --> 01:01:32,008
  4823. - No!
  4824. - Uh, rude!
  4825.  
  4826. 1036
  4827. 01:01:32,010 --> 01:01:34,748
  4828. - Is Tiny Tim dead?
  4829. - Well, of course he is. Imbecile.
  4830.  
  4831. 1037
  4832. 01:01:36,583 --> 01:01:38,115
  4833. He was very ill.
  4834.  
  4835. 1038
  4836. 01:01:38,117 --> 01:01:39,883
  4837. You can't save
  4838. every child in London.
  4839.  
  4840. 1039
  4841. 01:01:39,885 --> 01:01:42,519
  4842. And the family
  4843. has no money for a doctor.
  4844.  
  4845. 1040
  4846. 01:01:42,521 --> 01:01:44,554
  4847. Then Scrooge must save him!
  4848.  
  4849. 1041
  4850. 01:01:44,556 --> 01:01:45,591
  4851. Me?
  4852.  
  4853. 1042
  4854. 01:01:47,059 --> 01:01:48,793
  4855. - But he wouldn't...
  4856. - Why?
  4857.  
  4858. 1043
  4859. 01:01:48,795 --> 01:01:51,461
  4860. - Well, he's too selfish.
  4861. - He can change.
  4862.  
  4863. 1044
  4864. 01:01:51,463 --> 01:01:53,530
  4865. There's good in him somewhere,
  4866. I know it!
  4867.  
  4868. 1045
  4869. 01:01:53,532 --> 01:01:55,768
  4870. People don't change.
  4871.  
  4872. 1046
  4873. 01:01:57,737 --> 01:02:00,104
  4874. He's been this way
  4875. for a long time.
  4876.  
  4877. 1047
  4878. 01:02:00,106 --> 01:02:02,407
  4879. I'm not sure
  4880. he can change.
  4881.  
  4882. 1048
  4883. 01:02:02,409 --> 01:02:05,112
  4884. Of course he can.
  4885. He's not a monster.
  4886.  
  4887. 1049
  4888. 01:02:07,012 --> 01:02:09,479
  4889. I thought this was a ghost
  4890. story, not a fairy tale.
  4891.  
  4892. 1050
  4893. 01:02:09,481 --> 01:02:13,016
  4894. He wouldn't let Tiny Tim die,
  4895. Mr. Dickens.
  4896.  
  4897. 1051
  4898. 01:02:13,018 --> 01:02:15,853
  4899. He has a heart,
  4900. doesn't he?
  4901.  
  4902. 1052
  4903. 01:02:15,855 --> 01:02:18,057
  4904. It would be
  4905. too wicked...
  4906.  
  4907. 1053
  4908. 01:02:20,025 --> 01:02:21,961
  4909. even for him.
  4910.  
  4911. 1054
  4912. 01:02:44,083 --> 01:02:46,987
  4913. (pen tapping on inkwell)
  4914.  
  4915. 1055
  4916. 01:03:05,170 --> 01:03:09,740
  4917. (Mr. Dickens) 'Tis now the
  4918. very witching time of night...
  4919.  
  4920. 1056
  4921. 01:03:09,742 --> 01:03:10,941
  4922. (Mrs. Dickens) Hush!
  4923.  
  4924. 1057
  4925. 01:03:10,943 --> 01:03:13,144
  4926. when graveyards
  4927. yawn and hell...
  4928.  
  4929. 1058
  4930. 01:03:13,146 --> 01:03:15,947
  4931. Aha, Shakespeare.
  4932. (chuckles)
  4933.  
  4934. 1059
  4935. 01:03:15,949 --> 01:03:18,081
  4936. There's a man
  4937. who could write.
  4938.  
  4939. 1060
  4940. 01:03:18,083 --> 01:03:21,651
  4941. I doubt he ever
  4942. had a blockage.
  4943.  
  4944. 1061
  4945. 01:03:21,653 --> 01:03:24,722
  4946. Self-preservation...
  4947. first law of nature.
  4948.  
  4949. 1062
  4950. 01:03:24,724 --> 01:03:26,026
  4951. And that's
  4952. just a fact.
  4953.  
  4954. 1063
  4955. 01:03:27,260 --> 01:03:28,925
  4956. (laughing)
  4957.  
  4958. 1064
  4959. 01:03:28,927 --> 01:03:30,728
  4960. Oh, hush.
  4961.  
  4962. 1065
  4963. 01:03:30,730 --> 01:03:33,164
  4964. Oh, Charles! Good evening.
  4965.  
  4966. 1066
  4967. 01:03:33,166 --> 01:03:35,199
  4968. We'll get him straight
  4969. into bed, Charles.
  4970.  
  4971. 1067
  4972. 01:03:35,201 --> 01:03:39,036
  4973. We were up the river to Kew, and I
  4974. think perhaps it was too long a day.
  4975.  
  4976. 1068
  4977. 01:03:39,038 --> 01:03:42,005
  4978. - Kew.
  4979. - Kew?
  4980.  
  4981. 1069
  4982. 01:03:42,007 --> 01:03:44,608
  4983. - What about your newspaper article?
  4984. - Article?
  4985.  
  4986. 1070
  4987. 01:03:44,610 --> 01:03:47,177
  4988. Yes, the one you're writing.
  4989. It's been over a month.
  4990.  
  4991. 1071
  4992. 01:03:47,179 --> 01:03:49,579
  4993. Oh! (laughs)
  4994.  
  4995. 1072
  4996. 01:03:49,581 --> 01:03:51,516
  4997. Oh, ho! Oh!
  4998.  
  4999. 1073
  5000. 01:03:51,518 --> 01:03:53,818
  5001. No, the, um...
  5002.  
  5003. 1074
  5004. 01:03:53,820 --> 01:03:58,588
  5005. The editor felt that due
  5006. to pecuniary complications
  5007.  
  5008. 1075
  5009. 01:03:58,590 --> 01:04:00,791
  5010. of a most complicated
  5011. nature,
  5012.  
  5013. 1076
  5014. 01:04:00,793 --> 01:04:03,793
  5015. he felt he could not proceed
  5016. with the commission.
  5017.  
  5018. 1077
  5019. 01:04:03,795 --> 01:04:05,595
  5020. So, no newspaper article.
  5021.  
  5022. 1078
  5023. 01:04:05,597 --> 01:04:09,233
  5024. No. However,
  5025. I rejoice in saying
  5026.  
  5027. 1079
  5028. 01:04:09,235 --> 01:04:12,637
  5029. I have every hope
  5030. something will turn up.
  5031.  
  5032. 1080
  5033. 01:04:12,639 --> 01:04:15,541
  5034. I think it's time you went
  5035. back to Devon, Father.
  5036.  
  5037. 1081
  5038. 01:04:16,876 --> 01:04:19,213
  5039. - Indeed.
  5040. - As soon as possible.
  5041.  
  5042. 1082
  5043. 01:04:23,181 --> 01:04:25,749
  5044. Of course, dear boy.
  5045.  
  5046. 1083
  5047. 01:04:25,751 --> 01:04:28,188
  5048. We shall catch the
  5049. afternoon train tomorrow.
  5050.  
  5051. 1084
  5052. 01:04:31,791 --> 01:04:33,624
  5053. No, sweet.
  5054.  
  5055. 1085
  5056. 01:04:33,626 --> 01:04:35,496
  5057. I can manage
  5058. from here.
  5059.  
  5060. 1086
  5061. 01:04:36,329 --> 01:04:37,865
  5062. Thank you.
  5063.  
  5064. 1087
  5065. 01:04:39,231 --> 01:04:41,201
  5066. Good night, Charles.
  5067.  
  5068. 1088
  5069. 01:04:44,804 --> 01:04:48,204
  5070. Ride on, ride on,
  5071.  
  5072. 1089
  5073. 01:04:48,206 --> 01:04:50,575
  5074. over all obstacles
  5075.  
  5076. 1090
  5077. 01:04:50,577 --> 01:04:52,842
  5078. and win the race.
  5079.  
  5080. 1091
  5081. 01:04:52,844 --> 01:04:55,211
  5082. Don't be unkind,
  5083. Charley.
  5084.  
  5085. 1092
  5086. 01:04:55,213 --> 01:04:57,280
  5087. You don't know
  5088. what he's been through.
  5089.  
  5090. 1093
  5091. 01:04:57,282 --> 01:05:00,184
  5092. He feels it all,
  5093. you know.
  5094.  
  5095. 1094
  5096. 01:05:00,186 --> 01:05:04,124
  5097. He would never tell you,
  5098. but he feels it all.
  5099.  
  5100. 1095
  5101. 01:05:12,331 --> 01:05:14,268
  5102. (door closes)
  5103.  
  5104. 1096
  5105. 01:05:23,742 --> 01:05:28,179
  5106. That's it. Blood of
  5107. iron, heart of ice.
  5108.  
  5109. 1097
  5110. 01:05:28,181 --> 01:05:30,717
  5111. Now perhaps we can finish
  5112. this little book.
  5113.  
  5114. 1098
  5115. 01:05:35,855 --> 01:05:39,289
  5116. "Are these the shadows
  5117. of the things that will be,
  5118.  
  5119. 1099
  5120. 01:05:39,291 --> 01:05:42,328
  5121. or are they shadows of the
  5122. things that may be only?"
  5123.  
  5124. 1100
  5125. 01:05:46,032 --> 01:05:47,901
  5126. That is as far
  5127. as I've got.
  5128.  
  5129. 1101
  5130. 01:05:49,702 --> 01:05:52,003
  5131. It's brilliant.
  5132.  
  5133. 1102
  5134. 01:05:52,005 --> 01:05:54,738
  5135. - Are you pulling my leg?
  5136. - No. No, of course not.
  5137.  
  5138. 1103
  5139. 01:05:54,740 --> 01:05:58,177
  5140. Well, now...
  5141. that's encouraging.
  5142.  
  5143. 1104
  5144. 01:06:00,179 --> 01:06:02,880
  5145. My... My one criticism...
  5146.  
  5147. 1105
  5148. 01:06:02,882 --> 01:06:04,414
  5149. Yes?
  5150.  
  5151. 1106
  5152. 01:06:04,416 --> 01:06:07,150
  5153. - Tiny Tim.
  5154. - Go on.
  5155.  
  5156. 1107
  5157. 01:06:07,152 --> 01:06:10,021
  5158. - Are you really going to let him die?
  5159. - Aw, not you as well.
  5160.  
  5161. 1108
  5162. 01:06:10,023 --> 01:06:13,190
  5163. It's a Christmas book.
  5164. Shouldn't it be hopeful?
  5165.  
  5166. 1109
  5167. 01:06:13,192 --> 01:06:15,325
  5168. I mean, isn't that what... what...
  5169. what Christmas is all about?
  5170.  
  5171. 1110
  5172. 01:06:15,327 --> 01:06:19,429
  5173. The hope that in the end, our
  5174. better natures will prevail?
  5175.  
  5176. 1111
  5177. 01:06:19,431 --> 01:06:22,133
  5178. You were the one who persuaded
  5179. me to kill off Little Nell.
  5180.  
  5181. 1112
  5182. 01:06:22,135 --> 01:06:23,767
  5183. Yeah. Well, I stand by
  5184. that decision.
  5185.  
  5186. 1113
  5187. 01:06:23,769 --> 01:06:25,369
  5188. John, my readers
  5189. implored me...
  5190.  
  5191. 1114
  5192. 01:06:25,371 --> 01:06:29,242
  5193. But this is different. If Tiny
  5194. Tim dies, then what's the point?
  5195.  
  5196. 1115
  5197. 01:06:31,210 --> 01:06:32,842
  5198. - Thank you, John.
  5199. - You're welcome.
  5200.  
  5201. 1116
  5202. 01:06:32,844 --> 01:06:35,679
  5203. For reminding me why I never
  5204. ask your opinion on my work.
  5205.  
  5206. 1117
  5207. 01:06:35,681 --> 01:06:38,014
  5208. Your services
  5209. are no longer required.
  5210.  
  5211. 1118
  5212. 01:06:38,016 --> 01:06:39,950
  5213. - You cannot sack me.
  5214. - Why not?
  5215.  
  5216. 1119
  5217. 01:06:39,952 --> 01:06:43,019
  5218. Because I don't work for you.
  5219. I do what I do as a friend.
  5220.  
  5221. 1120
  5222. 01:06:43,021 --> 01:06:44,822
  5223. (door opens)
  5224.  
  5225. 1121
  5226. 01:06:44,824 --> 01:06:47,124
  5227. John, please leave.
  5228.  
  5229. 1122
  5230. 01:06:47,126 --> 01:06:50,760
  5231. (sighs)
  5232. See you on Friday.
  5233.  
  5234. 1123
  5235. 01:06:50,762 --> 01:06:53,366
  5236. Last chapter's due
  5237. at the printers.
  5238.  
  5239. 1124
  5240. 01:07:03,009 --> 01:07:05,976
  5241. Right. Let's run it again from the
  5242. scene with Scrooge's debtors.
  5243.  
  5244. 1125
  5245. 01:07:05,978 --> 01:07:07,878
  5246. - Oh, what's the point?
  5247. - The point?
  5248.  
  5249. 1126
  5250. 01:07:07,880 --> 01:07:09,713
  5251. We keep stopping
  5252. at the same place.
  5253.  
  5254. 1127
  5255. 01:07:09,715 --> 01:07:12,182
  5256. Yes, because
  5257. I'm working out the ending.
  5258.  
  5259. 1128
  5260. 01:07:12,184 --> 01:07:14,851
  5261. - Admit it, you're blocked!
  5262. - I'm not blocked.
  5263.  
  5264. 1129
  5265. 01:07:14,853 --> 01:07:16,122
  5266. Now, if you take
  5267. my advice...
  5268.  
  5269. 1130
  5270. 01:07:17,824 --> 01:07:19,990
  5271. - I'm the author here.
  5272. - Allegedly.
  5273.  
  5274. 1131
  5275. 01:07:19,992 --> 01:07:22,492
  5276. (all chuckling)
  5277.  
  5278. 1132
  5279. 01:07:22,494 --> 01:07:24,197
  5280. I'm going out.
  5281.  
  5282. 1133
  5283. 01:07:27,500 --> 01:07:30,103
  5284. - Alone!
  5285. - (woman) Aw.
  5286.  
  5287. 1134
  5288. 01:07:31,771 --> 01:07:34,840
  5289. (chattering, laughing)
  5290.  
  5291. 1135
  5292. 01:07:38,911 --> 01:07:40,744
  5293. Forster.
  5294. I need your help.
  5295.  
  5296. 1136
  5297. 01:07:40,746 --> 01:07:43,416
  5298. - What is it? The children?
  5299. - No. The children are fine.
  5300.  
  5301. 1137
  5302. 01:07:44,449 --> 01:07:46,249
  5303. What's this?
  5304.  
  5305. 1138
  5306. 01:07:46,251 --> 01:07:50,186
  5307. "Candle-scandal, flirt-hurt,
  5308. Charlotte-poor heart."
  5309.  
  5310. 1139
  5311. 01:07:50,188 --> 01:07:53,025
  5312. Is that a poem? That's atrocious.
  5313. What has got into you?
  5314.  
  5315. 1140
  5316. 01:07:54,827 --> 01:07:57,327
  5317. You look terrible.
  5318. What's the matter?
  5319.  
  5320. 1141
  5321. 01:07:57,329 --> 01:07:59,829
  5322. It's the book. I'm struggling
  5323. with one of the characters.
  5324.  
  5325. 1142
  5326. 01:07:59,831 --> 01:08:02,768
  5327. Whoo-hoo! Ah!
  5328.  
  5329. 1143
  5330. 01:08:06,873 --> 01:08:09,773
  5331. - Quite a few of them, actually.
  5332. - What exactly is the problem?
  5333.  
  5334. 1144
  5335. 01:08:09,775 --> 01:08:15,146
  5336. The problem is, could a man as mean-spirited
  5337. as Scrooge, as evil as Scrooge...
  5338.  
  5339. 1145
  5340. 01:08:15,148 --> 01:08:18,348
  5341. Could he become a different
  5342. person overnight?
  5343.  
  5344. 1146
  5345. 01:08:18,350 --> 01:08:21,152
  5346. What is so evil about him?
  5347.  
  5348. 1147
  5349. 01:08:21,154 --> 01:08:23,254
  5350. - Well, he's a miser.
  5351. - Well, that doesn't make him evil.
  5352.  
  5353. 1148
  5354. 01:08:23,256 --> 01:08:25,790
  5355. - It just makes him cheap.
  5356. - He worships money.
  5357.  
  5358. 1149
  5359. 01:08:25,792 --> 01:08:27,894
  5360. - It's the only thing that matters to him.
  5361. - Why?
  5362.  
  5363. 1150
  5364. 01:08:30,328 --> 01:08:32,897
  5365. He has nothing else.
  5366.  
  5367. 1151
  5368. 01:08:32,899 --> 01:08:34,801
  5369. No friends? No family?
  5370.  
  5371. 1152
  5372. 01:08:37,837 --> 01:08:39,870
  5373. No one he trusts.
  5374.  
  5375. 1153
  5376. 01:08:39,872 --> 01:08:41,472
  5377. Why?
  5378.  
  5379. 1154
  5380. 01:08:41,474 --> 01:08:44,211
  5381. Because he's afraid.
  5382.  
  5383. 1155
  5384. 01:08:45,511 --> 01:08:47,010
  5385. Of?
  5386.  
  5387. 1156
  5388. 01:08:47,012 --> 01:08:48,347
  5389. (sighs)
  5390.  
  5391. 1157
  5392. 01:08:51,384 --> 01:08:53,217
  5393. Being found out.
  5394.  
  5395. 1158
  5396. 01:08:53,219 --> 01:08:57,254
  5397. - Hello, chaps.
  5398. - Thackeray.
  5399.  
  5400. 1159
  5401. 01:08:57,256 --> 01:09:01,357
  5402. Charles, I haven't seen anything
  5403. of yours in print for ages.
  5404.  
  5405. 1160
  5406. 01:09:01,359 --> 01:09:03,593
  5407. Don't tell me
  5408. you've had a blockage.
  5409.  
  5410. 1161
  5411. 01:09:03,595 --> 01:09:06,996
  5412. Not in the least. I'm neck and
  5413. heels into a Christmas book.
  5414.  
  5415. 1162
  5416. 01:09:06,998 --> 01:09:10,968
  5417. - What the deuce is that?
  5418. - A story about Christmas.
  5419.  
  5420. 1163
  5421. 01:09:10,970 --> 01:09:12,570
  5422. For Christmas.
  5423.  
  5424. 1164
  5425. 01:09:12,572 --> 01:09:15,873
  5426. A story... about...?
  5427. (wheezing laugh)
  5428.  
  5429. 1165
  5430. 01:09:15,875 --> 01:09:18,008
  5431. (chuckling)
  5432. How amusing.
  5433.  
  5434. 1166
  5435. 01:09:18,010 --> 01:09:20,343
  5436. Well, best of luck with it.
  5437.  
  5438. 1167
  5439. 01:09:20,345 --> 01:09:25,148
  5440. Oh, dear, my last book has
  5441. come out in a Railway edition.
  5442.  
  5443. 1168
  5444. 01:09:25,150 --> 01:09:27,483
  5445. Sold 10,000 copies,
  5446. in a week.
  5447.  
  5448. 1169
  5449. 01:09:27,485 --> 01:09:30,019
  5450. "There's gold
  5451. in them thar hills,"
  5452.  
  5453. 1170
  5454. 01:09:30,021 --> 01:09:31,524
  5455. as your American friends
  5456. would say.
  5457.  
  5458. 1171
  5459. 01:09:36,362 --> 01:09:39,865
  5460. Come on. Let's go somewhere
  5461. else, get a real drink.
  5462.  
  5463. 1172
  5464. 01:09:45,904 --> 01:09:48,004
  5465. (men laughing)
  5466.  
  5467. 1173
  5468. 01:09:48,006 --> 01:09:52,409
  5469. She's a big lass, and a bonny
  5470. lass, and she likes her beer.
  5471.  
  5472. 1174
  5473. 01:09:52,411 --> 01:09:57,647
  5474. And I call her Cushie Butterfield,
  5475. and I wish she was here.
  5476.  
  5477. 1175
  5478. 01:09:57,649 --> 01:09:59,950
  5479. (laughs)
  5480. What language is that?
  5481.  
  5482. 1176
  5483. 01:09:59,952 --> 01:10:02,055
  5484. That's Geordie, man.
  5485. We're gods.
  5486.  
  5487. 1177
  5488. 01:10:05,091 --> 01:10:07,391
  5489. - Where are we?
  5490. - Oh, it's Hungerford Stairs.
  5491.  
  5492. 1178
  5493. 01:10:07,393 --> 01:10:08,895
  5494. Oi, I smell the river.
  5495.  
  5496. 1179
  5497. 01:10:12,899 --> 01:10:14,932
  5498. What's that?
  5499.  
  5500. 1180
  5501. 01:10:14,934 --> 01:10:16,599
  5502. It's a graveyard.
  5503.  
  5504. 1181
  5505. 01:10:16,601 --> 01:10:20,336
  5506. Ah, it's the old Warren's Factory.
  5507. They moved from there years ago.
  5508.  
  5509. 1182
  5510. 01:10:20,338 --> 01:10:22,339
  5511. I wonder they've not
  5512. pulled it down yet.
  5513.  
  5514. 1183
  5515. 01:10:22,341 --> 01:10:25,142
  5516. Yeah.
  5517. Or burnt it down.
  5518.  
  5519. 1184
  5520. 01:10:25,144 --> 01:10:27,111
  5521. Might do it myself
  5522. one day.
  5523.  
  5524. 1185
  5525. 01:10:27,113 --> 01:10:29,382
  5526. Why? What have you got
  5527. against boot blacking?
  5528.  
  5529. 1186
  5530. 01:10:30,115 --> 01:10:31,451
  5531. Charles.
  5532.  
  5533. 1187
  5534. 01:10:32,284 --> 01:10:33,586
  5535. What is it?
  5536.  
  5537. 1188
  5538. 01:10:35,154 --> 01:10:37,588
  5539. I just have
  5540. this recurring nightmare.
  5541.  
  5542. 1189
  5543. 01:10:37,590 --> 01:10:40,089
  5544. Oh, nightmares, aye.
  5545.  
  5546. 1190
  5547. 01:10:40,091 --> 01:10:42,660
  5548. I've got one where I'm being
  5549. chased by a giant badger.
  5550.  
  5551. 1191
  5552. 01:10:42,662 --> 01:10:44,364
  5553. (snorts, laughs)
  5554.  
  5555. 1192
  5556. 01:10:45,430 --> 01:10:46,932
  5557. What's yours?
  5558.  
  5559. 1193
  5560. 01:10:49,601 --> 01:10:52,001
  5561. Never mind.
  5562.  
  5563. 1194
  5564. 01:10:52,003 --> 01:10:54,338
  5565. Well, come on.
  5566. It's time to go home.
  5567.  
  5568. 1195
  5569. 01:10:54,340 --> 01:10:56,540
  5570. I'll see you at the printers.
  5571. Friday morning, nine o'clock.
  5572.  
  5573. 1196
  5574. 01:10:56,542 --> 01:10:58,411
  5575. - I can't.
  5576. - Well, why not?
  5577.  
  5578. 1197
  5579. 01:11:00,947 --> 01:11:04,214
  5580. It's the book.
  5581.  
  5582. 1198
  5583. 01:11:04,216 --> 01:11:07,253
  5584. I can't... The characters
  5585. won't do what I want.
  5586.  
  5587. 1199
  5588. 01:11:11,056 --> 01:11:12,690
  5589. And I'm afraid.
  5590.  
  5591. 1200
  5592. 01:11:12,692 --> 01:11:15,159
  5593. Of what?
  5594.  
  5595. 1201
  5596. 01:11:15,161 --> 01:11:18,361
  5597. If I can't finish it,
  5598. I'll never write again.
  5599.  
  5600. 1202
  5601. 01:11:18,363 --> 01:11:21,598
  5602. Oh, come on, man, come on.
  5603. Have some sleep, hear?
  5604.  
  5605. 1203
  5606. 01:11:21,600 --> 01:11:23,136
  5607. I can't.
  5608.  
  5609. 1204
  5610. 01:11:24,670 --> 01:11:28,272
  5611. The wrong fire
  5612. is burning in my head.
  5613.  
  5614. 1205
  5615. 01:11:28,274 --> 01:11:31,040
  5616. Oh, don't be daft. Now, come on,
  5617. your wife will be worried sick.
  5618.  
  5619. 1206
  5620. 01:11:31,042 --> 01:11:32,977
  5621. Who? Kate?
  5622. She doesn't understand me.
  5623.  
  5624. 1207
  5625. 01:11:32,979 --> 01:11:36,245
  5626. I've got news for you, Charles.
  5627. None of us understand you.
  5628.  
  5629. 1208
  5630. 01:11:36,247 --> 01:11:38,549
  5631. You're...
  5632. You're a freak of nature.
  5633.  
  5634. 1209
  5635. 01:11:38,551 --> 01:11:41,652
  5636. I'm exhausted spending
  5637. two hours in your company.
  5638.  
  5639. 1210
  5640. 01:11:41,654 --> 01:11:44,220
  5641. Come on, go home.
  5642. It's cold tonight, yeah?
  5643.  
  5644. 1211
  5645. 01:11:44,222 --> 01:11:47,057
  5646. I'll see you Friday.
  5647.  
  5648. 1212
  5649. 01:11:47,059 --> 01:11:50,760
  5650. ♫.. Oh, she's a big lass And a bonny
  5651. lass And she likes her beer ..♫
  5652.  
  5653. 1213
  5654. 01:11:50,762 --> 01:11:53,097
  5655. (singing continues, faint)
  5656.  
  5657. 1214
  5658. 01:11:53,099 --> 01:11:57,003
  5659. (horn blows)
  5660.  
  5661. 1215
  5662. 01:12:03,175 --> 01:12:05,278
  5663. Here. Bye.
  5664.  
  5665. 1216
  5666. 01:12:12,551 --> 01:12:14,454
  5667. Put that one over there!
  5668.  
  5669. 1217
  5670. 01:12:21,092 --> 01:12:23,160
  5671. Boys!
  5672.  
  5673. 1218
  5674. 01:12:23,162 --> 01:12:26,562
  5675. This here
  5676. is Charley Dickens.
  5677.  
  5678. 1219
  5679. 01:12:26,564 --> 01:12:29,201
  5680. And what was you just telling me, lad?
  5681. About your dad?
  5682.  
  5683. 1220
  5684. 01:12:36,341 --> 01:12:38,107
  5685. My father
  5686. is a gentleman.
  5687.  
  5688. 1221
  5689. 01:12:38,109 --> 01:12:41,178
  5690. - (laughing)
  5691. - Where is he then?
  5692.  
  5693. 1222
  5694. 01:12:41,180 --> 01:12:44,380
  5695. - Dining with the queen?
  5696. - I heard he's been sent to prison.
  5697.  
  5698. 1223
  5699. 01:12:44,382 --> 01:12:46,383
  5700. Hush, you lot.
  5701. Get back to work!
  5702.  
  5703. 1224
  5704. 01:12:46,385 --> 01:12:47,385
  5705. Master Dickens.
  5706.  
  5707. 1225
  5708. 01:12:48,820 --> 01:12:50,756
  5709. No shirkin' here.
  5710.  
  5711. 1226
  5712. 01:12:54,159 --> 01:12:57,229
  5713. You're no better than us, cocker,
  5714. and you'd best learn that.
  5715.  
  5716. 1227
  5717. 01:13:31,162 --> 01:13:33,563
  5718. You.
  5719. What are you doing?
  5720.  
  5721. 1228
  5722. 01:13:33,565 --> 01:13:35,799
  5723. Hello, Charley, old boy.
  5724.  
  5725. 1229
  5726. 01:13:35,801 --> 01:13:38,201
  5727. Father?
  5728. What are you doing here?
  5729.  
  5730. 1230
  5731. 01:13:38,203 --> 01:13:41,871
  5732. Oh, I had some business that I had
  5733. to attend to, so I thought...
  5734.  
  5735. 1231
  5736. 01:13:41,873 --> 01:13:44,741
  5737. You just left town. What business
  5738. could you possibly have?
  5739.  
  5740. 1232
  5741. 01:13:44,743 --> 01:13:46,579
  5742. - Oh, I... (chuckles)
  5743. - What's that?
  5744.  
  5745. 1233
  5746. 01:13:49,614 --> 01:13:51,117
  5747. You're going
  5748. to sell this?
  5749.  
  5750. 1234
  5751. 01:13:52,451 --> 01:13:54,518
  5752. Well, it's no good to you,
  5753. is it?
  5754.  
  5755. 1235
  5756. 01:13:54,520 --> 01:13:56,820
  5757. Is that what
  5758. you've been doing?
  5759.  
  5760. 1236
  5761. 01:13:56,822 --> 01:13:59,755
  5762. Going through the rubbish like a
  5763. tramp, selling bits and pieces of me.
  5764.  
  5765. 1237
  5766. 01:13:59,757 --> 01:14:02,692
  5767. Is this your business?
  5768.  
  5769. 1238
  5770. 01:14:02,694 --> 01:14:06,196
  5771. - Aren't you ashamed?
  5772. - What?
  5773.  
  5774. 1239
  5775. 01:14:06,198 --> 01:14:09,732
  5776. I bought you a house.
  5777. I gave you an allowance.
  5778.  
  5779. 1240
  5780. 01:14:09,734 --> 01:14:11,835
  5781. What more can you
  5782. possibly need?
  5783.  
  5784. 1241
  5785. 01:14:11,837 --> 01:14:16,240
  5786. Need?
  5787. Oh, reason not the need.
  5788.  
  5789. 1242
  5790. 01:14:16,242 --> 01:14:19,175
  5791. - (shouting) You see me here, you gods?
  5792. - No. No. Shh. No.
  5793.  
  5794. 1243
  5795. 01:14:19,177 --> 01:14:21,711
  5796. - A poor old man!
  5797. - No! Shh! Stop it.
  5798.  
  5799. 1244
  5800. 01:14:21,713 --> 01:14:27,617
  5801. Charley, you don't know what it's
  5802. like to be poor, to be nothing.
  5803.  
  5804. 1245
  5805. 01:14:27,619 --> 01:14:30,320
  5806. At 11 years old
  5807. I was made to know.
  5808.  
  5809. 1246
  5810. 01:14:30,322 --> 01:14:32,889
  5811. Working 12 hours a day,
  5812.  
  5813. 1247
  5814. 01:14:32,891 --> 01:14:37,427
  5815. going hungry,
  5816. alone and afraid
  5817.  
  5818. 1248
  5819. 01:14:37,429 --> 01:14:40,464
  5820. because your father, who is
  5821. supposed to care for you,
  5822.  
  5823. 1249
  5824. 01:14:40,466 --> 01:14:42,532
  5825. is so utterly
  5826. thriftless!
  5827.  
  5828. 1250
  5829. 01:14:42,534 --> 01:14:44,634
  5830. No, please. (crying)
  5831. I beg you.
  5832.  
  5833. 1251
  5834. 01:14:44,636 --> 01:14:46,702
  5835. No, you are not
  5836. the victim here.
  5837.  
  5838. 1252
  5839. 01:14:46,704 --> 01:14:48,738
  5840. This is about me and your
  5841. family and all of us
  5842.  
  5843. 1253
  5844. 01:14:48,740 --> 01:14:52,209
  5845. who've lived our whole lives in
  5846. the shadow of your recklessness.
  5847.  
  5848. 1254
  5849. 01:14:52,211 --> 01:14:55,312
  5850. Charley...
  5851. (crying continues)
  5852.  
  5853. 1255
  5854. 01:14:55,314 --> 01:14:59,549
  5855. Go away. I am sickened
  5856. at the sight of you.
  5857.  
  5858. 1256
  5859. 01:14:59,551 --> 01:15:03,219
  5860. You are nothing but a drag
  5861. and chain upon my life.
  5862.  
  5863. 1257
  5864. 01:15:03,221 --> 01:15:05,589
  5865. I owe you nothing. Go!
  5866.  
  5867. 1258
  5868. 01:15:05,591 --> 01:15:06,893
  5869. Ah, Charley.
  5870.  
  5871. 1259
  5872. 01:15:13,399 --> 01:15:14,734
  5873. (sobs)
  5874.  
  5875. 1260
  5876. 01:15:32,952 --> 01:15:34,487
  5877. (door closes)
  5878.  
  5879. 1261
  5880. 01:15:36,689 --> 01:15:38,455
  5881. - (woman) Who's that then?
  5882. - (Scrooge) Nobody.
  5883.  
  5884. 1262
  5885. 01:15:38,457 --> 01:15:40,257
  5886. - The author.
  5887. - Huh.
  5888.  
  5889. 1263
  5890. 01:15:40,259 --> 01:15:42,261
  5891. No wonder he looks
  5892. so depressed.
  5893.  
  5894. 1264
  5895. 01:15:47,699 --> 01:15:49,900
  5896. Right. That's enough.
  5897. Back to work.
  5898.  
  5899. 1265
  5900. 01:15:49,902 --> 01:15:52,001
  5901. God bless us,
  5902. every one.
  5903.  
  5904. 1266
  5905. 01:15:52,003 --> 01:15:54,338
  5906. Why are you so miserable?
  5907.  
  5908. 1267
  5909. 01:15:54,340 --> 01:15:57,273
  5910. What else can I be, when I live
  5911. in such a world of fools as this?
  5912.  
  5913. 1268
  5914. 01:15:57,275 --> 01:15:59,543
  5915. - You mean-spirited, cynical...
  5916. - Oh, yes?
  5917.  
  5918. 1269
  5919. 01:15:59,545 --> 01:16:01,544
  5920. Well, you look
  5921. in the mirror sometime.
  5922.  
  5923. 1270
  5924. 01:16:01,546 --> 01:16:03,379
  5925. "Is that a new candle, Kate?"
  5926.  
  5927. 1271
  5928. 01:16:03,381 --> 01:16:05,415
  5929. "Your services
  5930. are no longer required."
  5931.  
  5932. 1272
  5933. 01:16:05,417 --> 01:16:08,684
  5934. - Ah, a hypocrite.
  5935. - (knocking)
  5936.  
  5937. 1273
  5938. 01:16:08,686 --> 01:16:10,620
  5939. (grunts)
  5940.  
  5941. 1274
  5942. 01:16:10,622 --> 01:16:12,421
  5943. - What?
  5944. - Pardon me, sir.
  5945.  
  5946. 1275
  5947. 01:16:12,423 --> 01:16:14,391
  5948. - Mrs. Dickens just wanted me to ask...
  5949. - This is intolerable.
  5950.  
  5951. 1276
  5952. 01:16:14,393 --> 01:16:18,894
  5953. - Mrs. Fisk! Mrs. Fisk!
  5954. - Yes, sir?
  5955.  
  5956. 1277
  5957. 01:16:18,896 --> 01:16:22,734
  5958. Take this child away from here and see that she
  5959. never disturbs me ever again. Do you hear?
  5960.  
  5961. 1278
  5962. 01:16:23,969 --> 01:16:26,471
  5963. Yes, sir.
  5964. Come with me, girl.
  5965.  
  5966. 1279
  5967. 01:16:27,905 --> 01:16:30,906
  5968. Oh, yes. Banish her.
  5969. Banish them all.
  5970.  
  5971. 1280
  5972. 01:16:30,908 --> 01:16:33,643
  5973. - Quiet!
  5974. - Humanity's great benefactor.
  5975.  
  5976. 1281
  5977. 01:16:33,645 --> 01:16:35,379
  5978. - Humbug!
  5979. - Shut it.
  5980.  
  5981. 1282
  5982. 01:16:35,381 --> 01:16:37,848
  5983. Or I'll make you bald,
  5984. with bad teeth.
  5985.  
  5986. 1283
  5987. 01:16:37,850 --> 01:16:40,616
  5988. Oh, yeah, go ahead.
  5989. It won't change a thing.
  5990.  
  5991. 1284
  5992. 01:16:40,618 --> 01:16:42,688
  5993. You still won't have an ending.
  5994.  
  5995. 1285
  5996. 01:16:48,426 --> 01:16:50,693
  5997. This is ridiculous.
  5998.  
  5999. 1286
  6000. 01:16:50,695 --> 01:16:52,966
  6001. You're all being ridiculous.
  6002.  
  6003. 1287
  6004. 01:16:57,302 --> 01:16:59,238
  6005. (shouting)
  6006.  
  6007. 1288
  6008. 01:17:00,506 --> 01:17:03,973
  6009. (angry shout)
  6010. If you be a man!
  6011.  
  6012. 1289
  6013. 01:17:03,975 --> 01:17:06,677
  6014. Come on then, coward!
  6015.  
  6016. 1290
  6017. 01:17:06,679 --> 01:17:08,512
  6018. Fight me!
  6019.  
  6020. 1291
  6021. 01:17:08,514 --> 01:17:10,714
  6022. You miserable old fool!
  6023.  
  6024. 1292
  6025. 01:17:10,716 --> 01:17:13,620
  6026. Fight me! Come on!
  6027.  
  6028. 1293
  6029. 01:18:01,699 --> 01:18:03,099
  6030. Tara.
  6031.  
  6032. 1294
  6033. 01:18:03,101 --> 01:18:05,305
  6034. - (door closes)
  6035. - Tara!
  6036.  
  6037. 1295
  6038. 01:18:07,939 --> 01:18:09,805
  6039. Has anybody seen Tara?
  6040.  
  6041. 1296
  6042. 01:18:09,807 --> 01:18:12,808
  6043. - She's gone.
  6044. - You asked Mrs. Fisk to send her away.
  6045.  
  6046. 1297
  6047. 01:18:12,810 --> 01:18:15,911
  6048. Well, go and search for her.
  6049. Find her.
  6050.  
  6051. 1298
  6052. 01:18:15,913 --> 01:18:18,482
  6053. Rehire her at once.
  6054.  
  6055. 1299
  6056. 01:18:18,484 --> 01:18:23,786
  6057. An Irish orphan in London? That would be
  6058. like looking for a needle in a haystack.
  6059.  
  6060. 1300
  6061. 01:18:23,788 --> 01:18:27,523
  6062. Come on, out. Come on,
  6063. children, off you go.
  6064.  
  6065. 1301
  6066. 01:18:27,525 --> 01:18:29,561
  6067. Quick sticks.
  6068. That's it.
  6069.  
  6070. 1302
  6071. 01:18:31,462 --> 01:18:33,129
  6072. Why didn't you
  6073. stop her?
  6074.  
  6075. 1303
  6076. 01:18:33,131 --> 01:18:35,766
  6077. How was I to know you didn't mean it?
  6078. You said...
  6079.  
  6080. 1304
  6081. 01:18:35,768 --> 01:18:39,402
  6082. I say a lot of things that are
  6083. nonsense when I'm working.
  6084.  
  6085. 1305
  6086. 01:18:39,404 --> 01:18:43,173
  6087. - Charles...
  6088. - You know how ideas take possession of me.
  6089.  
  6090. 1306
  6091. 01:18:43,175 --> 01:18:47,579
  6092. - You knew what I was like when you married me.
  6093. - Yes. I did.
  6094.  
  6095. 1307
  6096. 01:18:49,480 --> 01:18:52,818
  6097. But you have no idea
  6098. what it's like to live with you.
  6099.  
  6100. 1308
  6101. 01:18:54,118 --> 01:18:55,951
  6102. Always walking
  6103. on eggshells,
  6104.  
  6105. 1309
  6106. 01:18:55,953 --> 01:18:57,853
  6107. trying to guess your mood,
  6108.  
  6109. 1310
  6110. 01:18:57,855 --> 01:19:00,859
  6111. to know which of your commands are
  6112. a whim and which are in earnest.
  6113.  
  6114. 1311
  6115. 01:19:02,860 --> 01:19:04,730
  6116. You know, sometimes I...
  6117.  
  6118. 1312
  6119. 01:19:06,564 --> 01:19:09,598
  6120. I feel your characters
  6121. matter more to you
  6122.  
  6123. 1313
  6124. 01:19:09,600 --> 01:19:11,703
  6125. than your own flesh and blood.
  6126.  
  6127. 1314
  6128. 01:19:19,778 --> 01:19:21,114
  6129. I am who I am.
  6130.  
  6131. 1315
  6132. 01:19:23,047 --> 01:19:25,581
  6133. And who is that?
  6134.  
  6135. 1316
  6136. 01:19:25,583 --> 01:19:28,018
  6137. It's as if
  6138. there are two of you.
  6139.  
  6140. 1317
  6141. 01:19:28,020 --> 01:19:30,920
  6142. One who's kind and gentle,
  6143.  
  6144. 1318
  6145. 01:19:30,922 --> 01:19:33,190
  6146. and a secret self
  6147.  
  6148. 1319
  6149. 01:19:33,192 --> 01:19:35,927
  6150. that no one is allowed
  6151. to know or question.
  6152.  
  6153. 1320
  6154. 01:20:54,273 --> 01:20:56,039
  6155. (coughing)
  6156.  
  6157. 1321
  6158. 01:20:56,041 --> 01:20:58,141
  6159. (man) This here
  6160. is Charley Dickens.
  6161.  
  6162. 1322
  6163. 01:20:58,143 --> 01:21:01,680
  6164. What was it you was telling me,
  6165. lad, about your dad?
  6166.  
  6167. 1323
  6168. 01:21:03,681 --> 01:21:06,016
  6169. (young Charles)
  6170. My father is a gentleman.
  6171.  
  6172. 1324
  6173. 01:21:06,018 --> 01:21:07,918
  6174. (boys laughing)
  6175.  
  6176. 1325
  6177. 01:21:07,920 --> 01:21:10,620
  6178. (boy) Where is he then?
  6179. Dining with the queen?
  6180.  
  6181. 1326
  6182. 01:21:10,622 --> 01:21:12,621
  6183. (boy 2) I heard he's
  6184. been sent to prison!
  6185.  
  6186. 1327
  6187. 01:21:12,623 --> 01:21:15,825
  6188. (man) Hush, you lot! Where's your manners?
  6189. Get back to work.
  6190.  
  6191. 1328
  6192. 01:21:15,827 --> 01:21:17,760
  6193. Master Dickens.
  6194.  
  6195. 1329
  6196. 01:21:17,762 --> 01:21:20,229
  6197. (boy 3) Got a present
  6198. for the young gentleman,
  6199.  
  6200. 1330
  6201. 01:21:20,231 --> 01:21:22,935
  6202. seeing as it's Christmas.
  6203.  
  6204. 1331
  6205. 01:21:24,036 --> 01:21:27,840
  6206. (boys laughing)
  6207.  
  6208. 1332
  6209. 01:21:28,774 --> 01:21:30,977
  6210. (young Charles crying)
  6211.  
  6212. 1333
  6213. 01:21:33,145 --> 01:21:35,678
  6214. Blood of iron,
  6215. heart of ice.
  6216.  
  6217. 1334
  6218. 01:21:35,680 --> 01:21:37,282
  6219. (boy) You're no better
  6220. than us, cocker!
  6221.  
  6222. 1335
  6223. 01:21:44,221 --> 01:21:46,889
  6224. Hello, Charley.
  6225.  
  6226. 1336
  6227. 01:21:46,891 --> 01:21:51,061
  6228. So, this is
  6229. your miserable secret.
  6230.  
  6231. 1337
  6232. 01:21:51,063 --> 01:21:55,365
  6233. The famous author,
  6234. the inimitable Charles Dickens,
  6235.  
  6236. 1338
  6237. 01:21:55,367 --> 01:21:59,969
  6238. was once a scabby
  6239. little factory boy.
  6240.  
  6241. 1339
  6242. 01:21:59,971 --> 01:22:01,705
  6243. Leave me be.
  6244.  
  6245. 1340
  6246. 01:22:01,707 --> 01:22:05,642
  6247. A common bit of riffraff,
  6248. a squalid wretch.
  6249.  
  6250. 1341
  6251. 01:22:05,644 --> 01:22:08,247
  6252. No use to anyone!
  6253.  
  6254. 1342
  6255. 01:22:09,847 --> 01:22:11,050
  6256. (angry shouting)
  6257.  
  6258. 1343
  6259. 01:22:14,252 --> 01:22:15,955
  6260. (angry shout)
  6261.  
  6262. 1344
  6263. 01:22:20,024 --> 01:22:23,893
  6264. (chuckling) Look for yourself.
  6265. What do you see, huh?
  6266.  
  6267. 1345
  6268. 01:22:23,895 --> 01:22:27,964
  6269. A nothing. A nobody.
  6270. A debtor's son.
  6271.  
  6272. 1346
  6273. 01:22:27,966 --> 01:22:30,202
  6274. Who could ever care
  6275. for you?
  6276.  
  6277. 1347
  6278. 01:22:32,871 --> 01:22:36,805
  6279. Certainly not your father.
  6280. He abandoned you. (laughing)
  6281.  
  6282. 1348
  6283. 01:22:36,807 --> 01:22:39,776
  6284. Enough of that.
  6285. Stand up tall.
  6286.  
  6287. 1349
  6288. 01:22:39,778 --> 01:22:41,314
  6289. Blood of iron,
  6290. heart of ice.
  6291.  
  6292. 1350
  6293. 01:22:42,847 --> 01:22:44,750
  6294. (Scrooge)
  6295. He failed you again and again.
  6296.  
  6297. 1351
  6298. 01:22:47,019 --> 01:22:48,019
  6299. Oh!
  6300.  
  6301. 1352
  6302. 01:22:51,055 --> 01:22:52,888
  6303. You said so yourself.
  6304.  
  6305. 1353
  6306. 01:22:52,890 --> 01:22:56,795
  6307. Nothing but a drag and chain
  6308. upon your life.
  6309.  
  6310. 1354
  6311. 01:22:58,162 --> 01:22:59,764
  6312. Who are you? Huh?
  6313.  
  6314. 1355
  6315. 01:23:01,800 --> 01:23:03,336
  6316. You know me, Charley.
  6317.  
  6318. 1356
  6319. 01:23:04,770 --> 01:23:08,838
  6320. I'm hunger. I'm cold.
  6321.  
  6322. 1357
  6323. 01:23:08,840 --> 01:23:10,775
  6324. I'm darkness.
  6325.  
  6326. 1358
  6327. 01:23:12,444 --> 01:23:17,350
  6328. I'm the shadow on your thoughts,
  6329. the crack in your heart,
  6330.  
  6331. 1359
  6332. 01:23:18,850 --> 01:23:22,154
  6333. and the stain upon your soul.
  6334.  
  6335. 1360
  6336. 01:23:23,755 --> 01:23:26,891
  6337. And I will never,
  6338. ever leave you.
  6339.  
  6340. 1361
  6341. 01:23:29,293 --> 01:23:30,860
  6342. Go away.
  6343.  
  6344. 1362
  6345. 01:23:30,862 --> 01:23:32,965
  6346. Why? We're having such fun.
  6347.  
  6348. 1363
  6349. 01:23:33,998 --> 01:23:35,831
  6350. People don't change, Charley.
  6351.  
  6352. 1364
  6353. 01:23:35,833 --> 01:23:40,035
  6354. Look around you. You're
  6355. still the same scabby boy.
  6356.  
  6357. 1365
  6358. 01:23:40,037 --> 01:23:42,707
  6359. Useless,
  6360. just like your father.
  6361.  
  6362. 1366
  6363. 01:23:45,342 --> 01:23:46,878
  6364. No.
  6365.  
  6366. 1367
  6367. 01:23:49,146 --> 01:23:52,851
  6368. "No one is useless in this world who
  6369. lightens the burden of another."
  6370.  
  6371. 1368
  6372. 01:23:54,786 --> 01:23:57,155
  6373. My father
  6374. taught me that.
  6375.  
  6376. 1369
  6377. 01:23:58,957 --> 01:24:01,861
  6378. - (rumbling)
  6379. - (laughing)
  6380.  
  6381. 1370
  6382. 01:24:08,265 --> 01:24:10,135
  6383. Which grave is that?
  6384.  
  6385. 1371
  6386. 01:24:12,970 --> 01:24:15,273
  6387. - There's no name on it.
  6388. - Well, why should there be?
  6389.  
  6390. 1372
  6391. 01:24:17,175 --> 01:24:19,308
  6392. The man to whom
  6393. this grave belongs
  6394.  
  6395. 1373
  6396. 01:24:19,310 --> 01:24:21,279
  6397. never made himself useful
  6398. to anyone but himself.
  6399.  
  6400. 1374
  6401. 01:24:22,747 --> 01:24:24,513
  6402. No friends.
  6403.  
  6404. 1375
  6405. 01:24:24,515 --> 01:24:26,051
  6406. No family.
  6407.  
  6408. 1376
  6409. 01:24:27,752 --> 01:24:30,689
  6410. Never felt love or joy.
  6411.  
  6412. 1377
  6413. 01:24:32,224 --> 01:24:34,694
  6414. Never took any kind
  6415. of pleasure in life.
  6416.  
  6417. 1378
  6418. 01:24:43,033 --> 01:24:45,304
  6419. And now it's too late.
  6420.  
  6421. 1379
  6422. 01:24:46,771 --> 01:24:49,207
  6423. It's time, Mr. Scrooge.
  6424.  
  6425. 1380
  6426. 01:24:50,307 --> 01:24:52,310
  6427. We've come to the end.
  6428.  
  6429. 1381
  6430. 01:25:20,372 --> 01:25:23,109
  6431. I don't want to die.
  6432.  
  6433. 1382
  6434. 01:25:24,376 --> 01:25:26,375
  6435. Not like this...
  6436.  
  6437. 1383
  6438. 01:25:26,377 --> 01:25:29,178
  6439. alone,
  6440.  
  6441. 1384
  6442. 01:25:29,180 --> 01:25:31,082
  6443. unloved, forgotten.
  6444.  
  6445. 1385
  6446. 01:25:32,050 --> 01:25:34,349
  6447. It's too late.
  6448.  
  6449. 1386
  6450. 01:25:34,351 --> 01:25:36,419
  6451. No, it's never too late.
  6452.  
  6453. 1387
  6454. 01:25:36,421 --> 01:25:39,291
  6455. It's never...
  6456. It's never too late.
  6457.  
  6458. 1388
  6459. 01:25:41,259 --> 01:25:43,863
  6460. (rumbling)
  6461.  
  6462. 1389
  6463. 01:25:46,264 --> 01:25:49,464
  6464. I will honor Christmas
  6465. in my heart
  6466.  
  6467. 1390
  6468. 01:25:49,466 --> 01:25:51,934
  6469. and try to keep it
  6470. all the year.
  6471.  
  6472. 1391
  6473. 01:25:51,936 --> 01:25:55,205
  6474. I will live in the past,
  6475. the present, and the future.
  6476.  
  6477. 1392
  6478. 01:25:55,207 --> 01:25:58,974
  6479. The spirits of all three
  6480. will strive within me.
  6481.  
  6482. 1393
  6483. 01:25:58,976 --> 01:26:03,248
  6484. I will not shut out
  6485. the lessons that they teach.
  6486.  
  6487. 1394
  6488. 01:26:04,882 --> 01:26:07,485
  6489. Oh, please. I beg you.
  6490.  
  6491. 1395
  6492. 01:26:10,855 --> 01:26:13,958
  6493. Let me do some good...
  6494.  
  6495. 1396
  6496. 01:26:15,961 --> 01:26:18,361
  6497. before I die.
  6498.  
  6499. 1397
  6500. 01:26:18,363 --> 01:26:19,865
  6501. (rumbling stops)
  6502.  
  6503. 1398
  6504. 01:26:24,402 --> 01:26:26,538
  6505. So we come
  6506. to the final chapter.
  6507.  
  6508. 1399
  6509. 01:26:30,942 --> 01:26:33,912
  6510. Oh, I told you we'd do great
  6511. things together, Mr. Scrooge.
  6512.  
  6513. 1400
  6514. 01:26:35,546 --> 01:26:39,449
  6515. (bell tolling)
  6516.  
  6517. 1401
  6518. 01:26:39,451 --> 01:26:42,354
  6519. (gasping, laughing)
  6520.  
  6521. 1402
  6522. 01:26:45,623 --> 01:26:47,926
  6523. (laughing continues)
  6524.  
  6525. 1403
  6526. 01:26:56,333 --> 01:26:58,103
  6527. (pen tapping on inkwell)
  6528.  
  6529. 1404
  6530. 01:26:59,970 --> 01:27:02,006
  6531. Stave five.
  6532.  
  6533. 1405
  6534. 01:27:03,408 --> 01:27:05,211
  6535. "The End of It."
  6536.  
  6537. 1406
  6538. 01:27:08,212 --> 01:27:10,679
  6539. Yes. And the bedpost
  6540. was his own,
  6541.  
  6542. 1407
  6543. 01:27:10,681 --> 01:27:15,117
  6544. the bed was his own,
  6545. the room was his own.
  6546.  
  6547. 1408
  6548. 01:27:15,119 --> 01:27:18,858
  6549. Best and happiest of all, the time before
  6550. him was his own to make amends in.
  6551.  
  6552. 1409
  6553. 01:27:20,926 --> 01:27:22,558
  6554. Scrooge was better
  6555. than his word.
  6556.  
  6557. 1410
  6558. 01:27:22,560 --> 01:27:25,294
  6559. He did it all
  6560. and infinitely more.
  6561.  
  6562. 1411
  6563. 01:27:25,296 --> 01:27:28,263
  6564. And to Tiny Tim,
  6565. who did not die,
  6566.  
  6567. 1412
  6568. 01:27:28,265 --> 01:27:30,666
  6569. he was a second father.
  6570.  
  6571. 1413
  6572. 01:27:30,668 --> 01:27:33,436
  6573. And so,
  6574. as Tiny Tim observed,
  6575.  
  6576. 1414
  6577. 01:27:33,438 --> 01:27:36,208
  6578. "God bless us, every one."
  6579.  
  6580. 1415
  6581. 01:27:39,411 --> 01:27:40,945
  6582. The end.
  6583.  
  6584. 1416
  6585. 01:27:43,480 --> 01:27:44,617
  6586. The end.
  6587.  
  6588. 1417
  6589. 01:27:52,524 --> 01:27:54,389
  6590. - Charles?
  6591. - What?
  6592.  
  6593. 1418
  6594. 01:27:54,391 --> 01:27:56,558
  6595. - There is someone here to see you.
  6596. - Not now, Kate, please.
  6597.  
  6598. 1419
  6599. 01:27:56,560 --> 01:27:59,230
  6600. I have to get this to the
  6601. printer by nine o'clock.
  6602.  
  6603. 1420
  6604. 01:28:07,706 --> 01:28:09,240
  6605. Tara.
  6606.  
  6607. 1421
  6608. 01:28:10,274 --> 01:28:11,643
  6609. Thank you for the loan.
  6610.  
  6611. 1422
  6612. 01:28:15,180 --> 01:28:16,548
  6613. Well, thank you.
  6614.  
  6615. 1423
  6616. 01:28:18,716 --> 01:28:20,184
  6617. It's good, isn't it?
  6618.  
  6619. 1424
  6620. 01:28:22,052 --> 01:28:26,522
  6621. Oh, yes, sir.
  6622. It was fizzing.
  6623.  
  6624. 1425
  6625. 01:28:26,524 --> 01:28:29,662
  6626. Fizzing? (laughs)
  6627. That's delightful.
  6628.  
  6629. 1426
  6630. 01:28:32,262 --> 01:28:33,631
  6631. Tara.
  6632.  
  6633. 1427
  6634. 01:28:36,667 --> 01:28:39,535
  6635. I am very sorry that I sent you away.
  6636. That was a mistake.
  6637.  
  6638. 1428
  6639. 01:28:39,537 --> 01:28:41,106
  6640. And I was...
  6641.  
  6642. 1429
  6643. 01:28:44,309 --> 01:28:46,209
  6644. And you were right
  6645. about Tiny Tim.
  6646.  
  6647. 1430
  6648. 01:28:46,211 --> 01:28:48,076
  6649. He doesn't die.
  6650.  
  6651. 1431
  6652. 01:28:48,078 --> 01:28:50,679
  6653. Scrooge helps him
  6654. to get better.
  6655.  
  6656. 1432
  6657. 01:28:50,681 --> 01:28:53,318
  6658. And does he help Scrooge
  6659. get better too?
  6660.  
  6661. 1433
  6662. 01:28:56,453 --> 01:28:58,620
  6663. Yes.
  6664.  
  6665. 1434
  6666. 01:28:58,622 --> 01:29:01,326
  6667. Yes, he does.
  6668. (chuckling)
  6669.  
  6670. 1435
  6671. 01:29:06,030 --> 01:29:08,563
  6672. - Where did that come from?
  6673. - A gift.
  6674.  
  6675. 1436
  6676. 01:29:08,565 --> 01:29:11,701
  6677. For the children.
  6678. From your father.
  6679.  
  6680. 1437
  6681. 01:29:11,703 --> 01:29:13,635
  6682. My father was here?
  6683.  
  6684. 1438
  6685. 01:29:13,637 --> 01:29:17,173
  6686. You can still catch him, if...
  6687.  
  6688. 1439
  6689. 01:29:17,175 --> 01:29:18,510
  6690. Oh!
  6691.  
  6692. 1440
  6693. 01:29:21,345 --> 01:29:23,147
  6694. Kate.
  6695.  
  6696. 1441
  6697. 01:29:26,384 --> 01:29:28,683
  6698. I know.
  6699. You don't deserve me.
  6700.  
  6701. 1442
  6702. 01:29:28,685 --> 01:29:31,055
  6703. Go. Go.
  6704. (chuckling)
  6705.  
  6706. 1443
  6707. 01:29:36,261 --> 01:29:38,197
  6708. - Cab!
  6709. - Whoa!
  6710.  
  6711. 1444
  6712. 01:29:39,663 --> 01:29:41,630
  6713. - Paddington Station!
  6714. - Right-o, governor.
  6715.  
  6716. 1445
  6717. 01:29:41,632 --> 01:29:44,002
  6718. - As fast as you can!
  6719. - Oi! Oi!
  6720.  
  6721. 1446
  6722. 01:29:48,105 --> 01:29:49,504
  6723. - Whoa!
  6724. - (whinnying)
  6725.  
  6726. 1447
  6727. 01:29:49,506 --> 01:29:52,375
  6728. Turn it around.
  6729. And wait for me here!
  6730.  
  6731. 1448
  6732. 01:29:52,377 --> 01:29:54,343
  6733. - Oi! Stop!
  6734. - (whistle blows)
  6735.  
  6736. 1449
  6737. 01:29:54,345 --> 01:29:56,144
  6738. - Hey!
  6739. - Stop! Police!
  6740.  
  6741. 1450
  6742. 01:29:56,146 --> 01:29:58,080
  6743. Wait!
  6744.  
  6745. 1451
  6746. 01:29:58,082 --> 01:30:00,482
  6747. Wait, wait, please! Where
  6748. do you think you're going?
  6749.  
  6750. 1452
  6751. 01:30:00,484 --> 01:30:02,652
  6752. - What?
  6753. - Oh, please, dear.
  6754.  
  6755. 1453
  6756. 01:30:02,654 --> 01:30:06,822
  6757. - Don't make a scene. We're going away.
  6758. - No, you're not. Please.
  6759.  
  6760. 1454
  6761. 01:30:06,824 --> 01:30:09,692
  6762. Police! Get out of my way! Clear the way!
  6763. Let me through!
  6764.  
  6765. 1455
  6766. 01:30:09,694 --> 01:30:12,160
  6767. Oh.
  6768. What have I done now?
  6769.  
  6770. 1456
  6771. 01:30:12,162 --> 01:30:14,597
  6772. No, it's...
  6773. it's what you haven't done.
  6774.  
  6775. 1457
  6776. 01:30:14,599 --> 01:30:18,701
  6777. - What do you mean?
  6778. - Well, who's going to carve the turkey?
  6779.  
  6780. 1458
  6781. 01:30:18,703 --> 01:30:21,403
  6782. And who's going to make
  6783. the Christmas pudding?
  6784.  
  6785. 1459
  6786. 01:30:21,405 --> 01:30:23,438
  6787. It won't be the same
  6788. without you.
  6789.  
  6790. 1460
  6791. 01:30:23,440 --> 01:30:27,643
  6792. The pudding! The secret is
  6793. to warm the treacle first.
  6794.  
  6795. 1461
  6796. 01:30:27,645 --> 01:30:29,812
  6797. There, you...
  6798. You see, my dear?
  6799.  
  6800. 1462
  6801. 01:30:29,814 --> 01:30:32,581
  6802. I told you something
  6803. would turn up.
  6804.  
  6805. 1463
  6806. 01:30:32,583 --> 01:30:35,119
  6807. Oh, my son. Oh.
  6808.  
  6809. 1464
  6810. 01:30:36,453 --> 01:30:37,789
  6811. Gotcha!
  6812.  
  6813. 1465
  6814. 01:30:39,323 --> 01:30:41,257
  6815. You're that Charles
  6816. Dickens, aren't you?
  6817.  
  6818. 1466
  6819. 01:30:41,259 --> 01:30:42,458
  6820. Uh, guilty.
  6821.  
  6822. 1467
  6823. 01:30:42,460 --> 01:30:45,160
  6824. That last one.
  6825. Chuzzlewit.
  6826.  
  6827. 1468
  6828. 01:30:45,162 --> 01:30:47,796
  6829. Wept like a baby, I did.
  6830.  
  6831. 1469
  6832. 01:30:47,798 --> 01:30:50,433
  6833. Well, that's... That's very kind.
  6834. What's your name, Constable?
  6835.  
  6836. 1470
  6837. 01:30:50,435 --> 01:30:52,805
  6838. My name?
  6839. Copperfield, sir.
  6840.  
  6841. 1471
  6842. 01:30:53,837 --> 01:30:55,737
  6843. Copperfield.
  6844.  
  6845. 1472
  6846. 01:30:55,739 --> 01:30:57,807
  6847. Any chance
  6848. of a new book soon?
  6849.  
  6850. 1473
  6851. 01:30:57,809 --> 01:30:59,677
  6852. New book. New book!
  6853.  
  6854. 1474
  6855. 01:31:00,878 --> 01:31:03,812
  6856. Wait. New book.
  6857.  
  6858. 1475
  6859. 01:31:03,814 --> 01:31:05,317
  6860. Merry Christmas!
  6861.  
  6862. 1476
  6863. 01:31:06,751 --> 01:31:09,188
  6864. I'm his father.
  6865.  
  6866. 1477
  6867. 01:31:10,622 --> 01:31:12,354
  6868. (man)
  6869. Santa bells for sale!
  6870.  
  6871. 1478
  6872. 01:31:12,356 --> 01:31:15,327
  6873. Shoe Lane!
  6874. As fast as you can go.
  6875.  
  6876. 1479
  6877. 01:31:22,533 --> 01:31:24,634
  6878. - Charles, where have you been?
  6879. - It's all right. I've got it!
  6880.  
  6881. 1480
  6882. 01:31:24,636 --> 01:31:28,403
  6883. Mr. Grub!
  6884. Mr. Grub. We're here.
  6885.  
  6886. 1481

  6915. 1487
  6916. 01:31:52,462 --> 01:31:54,233
  6917. I didn't say

  6919.  
  6920. 1488
  6921. 01:32:08,246 --> 01:32:10,582

  6946.  
  6947. 1494
  6948. 01:33:16,780 --> 01:33:18,583
  6949. (sighs)

  6975. 1500
  6976. 01:33:35,500 --> 01:33:38,834
