A Christmas Carol (1984) (TV)
Fred Holywell: Uncle Ebenezer, this is my wife Janet. Janet this is Uncle Ebenezer.
Janet Holywell: It's a pleasure.
Ebenezer Scrooge: More like a surprise, wouldn't you say?
Janet Holywell: Well, that too.
Fred Holywell: That's quite true. Quite honestly, it is a surprise. At least yesterday, you made it quite clear, it seemed to me at least, that you had no intention of accepting my annual invitation.
Ebenezer Scrooge: I made other things clear too, didn't I, Fred? That Christmas was a humbug - a waste of time and money. A false and commercial festival, devoutly to be ignored.
Fred Holywell: Yes, basically, that was it.
Ebenezer Scrooge: Well, I've come for three reasons. First, to beg your pardon for the things I said about Christmas. That was a humbug, Fred.
Fred Holywell: Was it?
Ebenezer Scrooge: I didn't know it then, but I know it now. Secondly, I've come to meet your wife.
Fred Holywell: Well, here she is.
Ebenezer Scrooge: Yes, and a very beautiful woman she is too.
Janet Holywell: Thank you.
Ebenezer Scrooge: I uh... I was in love once. Would you believe that?
Janet Holywell: Yes.
Ebenezer Scrooge: But I possessed neither the courage nor the optimism nor perhaps the depth of feeling that you two have. Thirdly, if the invitation to dine with you today is still in force, I accept.
Fred Holywell: Of course, it's still in force! Hurrah! I was sure that one day...
Ebenezer Scrooge: You were sure? Well, apparently you were right. Yes, I should like to dine with you and your friends.
Janet Holywell: You'll be more than welcome!
