An American Christmas Carol (1979 TV Movie)
Mr. Brewster: When the day of quality ends in this country, we'll all be in great trouble indeed.
Benedict Slade: [after watching his younger self make a deal with Jack Latham] Yup, that's me! I always moved in when the moment was good. I could always smell a good business deal.
Ghost of Christmas Past: So could Latham. Look where he ended up.
Benedict Slade: [seeing an overgrown gravesite] Wait, wait. There is something about this place. Something draws me right to it. The monument looks fairly new, and yet, neglected.
Ghost of Christmas Future: No one visits that grave.
Benedict Slade: Not ever?
Ghost of Christmas Future: Not ever.
Benedict Slade: To lie in a grave, un-loved and un-remembered, is as if the life was never lived.
Ghost of Christmas Future: That is the only... real death.
Benedict Slade: I know this place. I've never been here before. Why does it look so familiar?
Ghost of Christmas Present: A picture, maybe?
Benedict Slade: On my office wall. My... employee... over his desk...
Ghost of Christmas Present: Your former employee. Remember?
Benedict Slade: He deserved to be fired. Disagrees with everything I do. Conspires with others to pull money out of me. Who needs someone like that around?
Ghost of Christmas Present: There are three in here who do.
