I'm gonna give you a little advice, Claire... Scrape 'em off. You wanna save somebody? Save yourself!
Oh, well, that's a really nice attitude on Christmas Eve!

About a third of the way through the closing credits, Bill Murray appears with the word "Scrooged" across the screen in front of him. He looks down and brushes the front of his jacket a few times, with each brush a couple of the letters in the title chase off the screen as if he's brushing them off his jacket. See more »
Easy to forget about this movie because you'll only watch it once a year at best - that's if you own it. If not, try it again. I'm sure you'll agree this is actually one of Bill Murray's best performances! It's not a Christmas movie - it's a comedy. It belongs in everybody's collection.
