From A Christmas Carol

Duologue: Characters: SCROOGE and GHOST 

On Christmas Eve the miserly old SCROOGE locks up his counting house and retires to his room, where he locks himself in. He sits over a low fire, taking his gruel before going to bed and complaining to himself about the wasteful, unnecessary  frivolities of Christmastime. He does not know that he is about to have a frightening encounter with the GHOST of his former business partner, Jacob Marley.

Extract from Script:

SCROOGE: And after that phantom – what is the third?

GHOST: The third comes upon the next night, when the last stroke of twelve has ceased to vibrate. The Ghost of Christmas Yet To Come! He is your hope, Ebenezer. Mark him well! Look to see me no more. And look to that, for your own sake, you remember what has passed between us! Learn, learn! Learn from the shades of Christmas Past and Christmas Present how you must live for a Christmas Yet To Come!(The GHOST rises, wraps its mantle about its head and starts to back away. SCROOGE sits forward on his chair, watching. The GHOST beckons him. SCROOGE approaches to within  two paces, when the GHOST holds up his hands,  warning him to come no nearer. SCROOGE covers his eyes and bows his head. The GHOST exits).
